In the present day, terrorism is on the rise and the Ua Virus – a biological agent with a 100% kill rate – has been unleashed into the populace. In Shanghai, Canaan is a near-unstoppable soldier who roams the streets, always in the path of a bullet. She is a Synesthetist – a person able to use all five senses at once – who harbors a burning desire for revenge and has a past shrouded in mystery. While the Ua Virus infects more people in the city, others cross paths with Canaan including Minoru, a freelance journalist; Maria, Canaan’s close friend who was infected with the Ua Virus and lost her memory of the incident; and The Snakes, a shady and violent group with mysterious motives. Danger lies at every turn for Canaan and ultimately the rest of mankind…

Togainu no Chi

Togainu no Chi

Once the undefeated champion of the street fighting game Bl@ster, Akira now fights for an entirely different cause. Having been framed for murder and given the choice of life in prison or exoneration for a price, he chose to take the latter, heading for the lawless district of Toshima. There, Akira is to fight in Igura, a game where the winner of each match receives special tags, and the loser loses his life. Alongside his longtime friend Keisuke and experienced Igura competitor Rin, Akira must now battle it out in Igura, try to avoid the sadistic enforcers that roam the streets, and complete his mission: to defeat Il Re and take down the drug company Vischio.

If you liked Canaan or Togainu no Chi, you'll probably like the other. The main characters in both animes are strongly psichologically attached to each other. Furthermore, both of them include a lot of action and sci-fi. Also, the plot may seem too similar at times, but however, these animes leave you a deep, heart-touching feeling.
