Will the Hellsing organization, under the command of Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing, be able to prevent a full scale war? Or will the world become a battlefield of destruction?
Ookami Kakushi is far superior in my opinion, but both of these titles have some similar stuff in common - a mystery about wtf is going on, people getting messed up in various ways due to unknown foes, and a definite mix of slow parts + horror moments.
After the death of his brother Keisei, Ouri vows to take on the task of becoming a Contracted Priest and fight alongside of the Shikabane Hime Makina. But Makina has doubts about Ouri and his skills as a Priest. Grieving the loss of her old Priest, Makina still clings to the memory of Keisei, which could very well lead to her destruction. Will she accept Ouri as her new Priest and allow him to fight at her side, or will Makina let revenge consume her as she hunts for the rogue Corpses that killed Keisei?
Both involve teenage girls, with impressive fighting abilities with weapons against monsters that they refer to as their enemy, though they are more or less exactly like them. Also, in both of these anime, there is a hint of developing feelings between the heroine and a character. If you like anime with girls that don't mind getting bloody, have a mature and slightly cold personality, and have an alter ego (Blood C), then I highly recommend this anime.
Ranmaru is young cop with a dark past. As one of the few survivors of a mindless slaughter in his apartment block, he joins a special unit called TOKKI to avenge his parents. On his first case, the already ghastly murder scene turns to one of terror, as the inhuman killers start to massacre the police. After being saved at the last minute by a secret unit named TOKKO who wield swords instead of guns, Ranmaru's mind is filled with questions and he is determined to find out the answers, no matter what it takes. What are these monsters, and why did they recognize him?
If you like bloody sword fighting and a descent story that makes sense enough to keep you entertained, then I recommend both Tokko and Blood C. You're going to get the gore, slight signs of romance, and those brief scenes of peacefullness that end abruptly with a bang. If you're in to that kind of stuff and you watched either Tokko or Blood C I'm sure you'll love the other.
