In world where flesh-eating monsters roam the streets, only one organization has the means to save civilization from annihilation: Red Shield, a specially-organized unit designed to fight these monsters, and the only weapon that can destroy them: Saya. Awakened from a 30-year sleep, Saya is thrust into a modern world which she has no memories of, and is troubled by a past filled only with bloodshed and sadness. With the undying love and support of her family and friends, she struggles to gain the strength to move forward and regain the pieces of her shattered memories.
Four students of the same age have nothing in common except that they attend the same elite New York City school. Kate, Rose, Clare and Rachel all belong to different cliques and hardly notice each other's existence. Then one day they gain something in common, something very important, something mysterious. They find themselves drawn together by the death of a fellow student and the secret of their own missing memories. Suddenly they are thrown into a world of hidden warfare on the city streets and are caught up in secrets which would not be believed by others. These four all have their own problems to struggle with, things that seem more important than such strange conflicts. Can they escape from this fate? The only thing they know is that despite coming from four different worlds they now have to rely on each other or die without a hope.
In both series the main characters destroy demons that are trying to kill them and innoccent people. they both have similar plots because they both involved about teenagers killing demons.There is a lot of action involved in these two seires and there is a lot of action. So if you like one you'd like the other one.
Both Red Garden and Blood+ have very similar plot themes. Both anime have two opposing groups of monsters set on killing eachother off. They both have a lot of action and suspense. Even in the first episode of Red Garden I knew that it would be a great anime for Blood+ fans and vice versa.
Red Garden and Blood + are 2 very favorite anime for me. Both let the vewer see human pain very clearly. Not the most usual anime and that is that make them stand out.
Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?
Shakugan no Shana isn't as dark as Blood+, however it does feature a sword-wielding heroine that you will enjoy. The premise is also different, without vampires, but the actual animation will thrill you and keep the story moving. Characters are well developed and able to grab your attention.
Like another reviewer has stated, in both series, there is a sword wielding heroine. Blood+ is a lot darker, but Shakugan no Shana is still very dark at points. Both heroines also have a strange background story.
Both have strong female leads, with abnormal powers.
And a normal everyday human sidekick. They also both struggle with their ability to protect the ones they love.
In the distant future, the world lies in ruin and vampires rule the land. Mercenary vampire hunters fight the terrible forces of darkness - for a price; the most notorious of them all being the half-vampire named D. However, despite his actions that help humanity, he finds himself shunned by those he would save. When a girl named Charlotte is kidnapped by the vampire Lord Meier, her father hires D to bring her back - dead or alive. Competing with the vampire hunting Marcus Brothers for the prize, D encounters Meier first; but in the middle of their confrontation, Charlotte calls out Meier's name in worry and Meier reveals that she is accompanying him of her own free will...
Two apparently reluctant heroes will face demons and vampires in great numbers as they battle their way to the source of the infestation. Expect plenty of gory, bloodthirsty attacks, abnormal creatures, and intriguing battles. Our heroes, Saya and D, will also have to question their own humanity, or perhaps lack of it, as pressure mounts on them to perform to the height of their abilities.
Another comparison to be made between these two is, although the main characters are fond primarily of the sword, you will also get to see a nice variety of guns and explosions too, something that the original D movie did not really concentrate on. But the inclusion of a gang of Bounty Hunters in D: Bloodlust draws favorable comparison with the soldiers of the Red Ring of Blood+.
In the end, both Anime put importance on the blood or bloodlines of both D and Saya. Could be the key to their strength and to their destiny?
Both have beautiful artwork and story. Vampires with swords fighting otherwordly demons and not even breaking a sweat, pure win. Both have a nice dark tone to the story that pulls you in and doesn't creep you away. Recommended that if you enjoyed one, you should check out the other.
Well made action series concentrating on vampires. With outstanding animation, good music and no comedy, these series are one of the most serious I happend to see. If you liked one you will definitelly like the other.
In the human world, there live demonic invaders named Shinma who prey upon the fragile souls of humans. The only hope for the humans is one of demonkind: Miyu, who is fated to destroy the Shinma and send them back to whence they came. Although half-human herself, as well as living amongst them as a typical high school student, she bears no compassion for those she saves, as well as condemns. Along with Larva, her subservient, Miyu sets out to destroy evil, one Shinma at a time.
Saya and Miyu are very much alike; they are both vampires trying to protect the world from they're own kind, as well as put them in they're place. Miyu is a bit on the emotion troubled side but hey that doesn't stop her from being an awesome heroine/main character. Miyu and Larva her protector fight many vampires known as Shinma that plauge the humanworld. If you liked one of these animes I possitively guarente you'll love the other.
There are many things that connect this two series.
1.Both anime are about supernatural creatures vampire/vampire-like.
2.Main characters have superpowers and travel with their loyal servants. Both of them are lonely woman with lots of problems and feel of guilty.
3. Lots of blood and voilence but at the same time both series try to send some message.
4.Watching this anime i just couldn't help myself and thing about the other one - because, they have the same kind of atmosphere.
Well, aside from the fact that both have a vampire as the leading character, they both have a partner who saves them from multiple dangerous situations. Both series have the same dark type feel to it, yet are not completely dark in the sense of the word! The animation is even similar in many ways, such as the backgrounds and textures!
If you enjoyed watching one, you will definitely enjoy the other
STN is a secret organization charged with capturing witches of all ages who misuse their inate ability of the Craft. Its newest recruit is a young girl named Robin, who wields the same power that she is helping to control. While skillful at their ability to detain quickly, the number of witches keeps seeming to increase, and the misuse of power grows stronger, casting a shadow of doubt as to what is really going on. For STN, there is much work ahead, and for Robin, her troubles are just beginning...
Both have a dark, witch-hunting themes to them. If you are into these types of themes, I'd suggest you try these two out to see if you like them. I've seen a lot of Witch Hunter Robin, and some of Blood Plus. Not bad, really.
Blood+ and witch hunter robin are both supernatural, horror, action series that leave viewers at the edge of their seats wanting more, blood+ has more gore and action than witch hunter robin, which it probably hard to beat anyway, but i highly recomend people to watch either series.
Both Saya and Robin are members of secret organizations and hunt their own kind for a living, all while trying to discover who and what are they truly. If you liked the pace and intricate story of one you will appreciate the other.
