28-year-old Hiroko Matsukata is the definition of a workaholic. On top of smoking too much, rarely having sex and having lousy luck nurturing her romantic life, she works excessively to get the job done. Alongside many co-workers at the weekly news magazine Jidai, Hiroko tirelessly works on countless stories – thus negating any chance of a social life. Can Hiroko balance her home and work life, or is she doomed to be a 'working man' forever?
Hataraki Man and Tsukikage Ran are very different anime; one is set before the Meiji era and features a woman samurai and her female karate sidekick, while the other is about a woman working as an editor at a major weekly magazine in present-day Tokyo.
What they have in common is women working at a normally male occupation in a society with very clear sex roles. Many of the subplots in both shows explore this 'cross-dressed' role.
Tsukikage Ran uses more slapstick humor, while Hataraki Man's is more situational. Both feature strong leading characters who are quite clear about their duties and rights, and who are quite willing to inform others of their duties and rights as well.
If you like seeing women in anime who aren't just supporting the guys, you'll probably like both of these shows.
In another world, there exist many countries, each with different cultures, customs, and traditions. From technological marvels to folk legends, each location yields a vast wealth of insight of its people: their hopes and their dreams, their failures and fears. Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.
Kino's Journey and Caried By The Wind: Tsukikage Ran are two wonderful 13-episode series about travellers with no destination. Each episode has its own story and the series' end with the main character, accompanied by a friend, choosing a path and ready for their next big adventure.
Rumors tell of a black-haired beauty that roams the land, taking down bandits that would harm the weak and innocent. Named Kan’u, the well-endowed warrior travels the land with her new friend Chouhi and a varied cast of companions, from the kind Koumei to the egotistical Sonshoukou and beyond. Together, the gang takes odd jobs, engage in political struggles and find plenty of new adventures along the way!
They both have traveling heroines. Tsukikage Ran has no main story plotline that links any two episodes other than the two main characters that travel together. While koihime Musou has independent episodes as well, the story or perhaps the cast of characters are expanded. Through Guan Yu's travels she meets new people and expands her retinue. They both have comedy though, Koihime has more ecchi and fan service.
Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?
Both are easygoing and light shows with fun characters that goes from place to place and face dramatic situations. While Bebop may be the better one Tsukikage Ran shouldn't be scoffed at either. Its sole goal is to entertain its viewers and it does just that well enough to be worth a watch.
In the feudal kingdom of Yogo, a dark secret is threatening its proud imperial family, and the Emperor intends to destroy it before it leaks out. Unfortunately this dark secret resides within his son, the young and innocent Second Prince Chagum. Enter Balsa, a wandering warrior who has sworn to save eight lives in penance for those she has taken during her violent career. Upon accepting her role as protector to Chagum, her eighth and final job, the two begin a perilous journey that tests not only their physical endurance and mental resolve, but also the tentative relationship they build along the way. Will Balsa fulfill her penance and protect Chagum as he seeks to understand the nature of his secret? Or will the Emperor's relentless assassins and other powerful enemies get them first?
Both of these anime feature strong female leads with martial arts training. Both women make their way by protecting others, and both are wanderers. Both animes are also set in pre-modern eras. Perhaps the main difference is that Moribito has a more serious feel to it than KTR, and KTR has individual epsiodes rather than a running plot. However, if you like female warriors dishing out beatings, these two animes are for you.
