Intensive gun-fights, shitty business, confusion. There is much more in common between Black Lagoon and El Cazarod de la Bruja than you can see at first sight! Both anime are much more enjoyable than you may think, especially if you don't like this particular genre. But don't turn your back! Some (already banal) themes are proposed in them. These include friednship, overcoming hardships. There are also similarities between the main characters - Rock (Black Lagoon) and Elis (El Cazador de la Bruja), but these are the similarities between the circumstances they are in that tie them together. Both Rock and Elis find their companions during experiencing hardships and in time when they most need help. After that they both enter a world they don't even expect to find.

Both Shikabane Hime and Black Lagoon feature strong dark female lead characters who shoot everything with guns. This leads to a certain style of show, with a lame male sidekick who gradually evolves from useless feeb into reasonably competent hero. The action sequences in both shows are good.
