Synopsis:

In a futuristic Earth, robots have been constructed to help mankind and preserve the planet – but their plans went terribly, terribly wrong. Led by the android designated BK-1 – more commonly known as The Black King – these robots have since taken over the world and enslaved mankind, believing that destroying humanity is the only way to save the planet. Thankfully, there is hope: Tetsuya, the son of BK-1's creator, has given up his humanity to become the cyborg Casshan; with the help of his robotic dog Friender and his once-girlfriend Luna, Casshan will fight to clear his father’s name and put a stop to the robots’ murderous rampage.

Casshan: Robot Hunter is an OVA which tries to update a kitschy Saturday morning cartoon from the 1970s to a dark, serious tale of war.

Gundam 0083 tries to do the same thing only it actually works. The latter features interesting characters, a mostly compelling plot, and spectacular OVA animation - things that Casshan frankly has a dearth of.

Vampire Hunter D

Neither of these are good; but they're both rather dull and forgettable but also dark and silly OVAs with also some gratuituous nudity from a blonde girl. Bizarrely enough they both also feature some rather mediocre adaptions of Yoshitaka Amano artwork.
