Rin is a private investigator with an advantage: near immortality. Thanks to the spores of the Yggdrasill tree, both she and her assistant Mimi have lived many years longer than the average person. That isn’t to say that being immortal doesn't have its problems. With 'angels' wanting to devour them, the being Apos sending wave after wave of professional assassins to kill them, and constant hangovers from long nights of drinking, being immortal still has its downsides. With Apos' attempts at removing them from the picture increasing, can Rin and Mimi figure out what he is after so they can return to their morning shots of Vodka?
Both of these series have dark atmosphere, female leads, a lot of gore and extraordinary females fighting against male monsters. Both also are quite sadistic. Almost every episode shows female character getting tortured.
If you like to see female characters in pain, be sure to check the other one out.
Both anime feauture excessive torturing of adult females, with the torturing being done by demonic creatures, both of whom have the capability of spreading wings.
In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.
Both Blue Gender and Claymore are focused around a girl working for a large militant or soldire like organization leading a boy through a world he is unfamiliar with. In both cases the plots have satisfying and tragic developements and this doesnt even cover the fact that in both cases they are constantly slaying armies of progresivly fiercer monsters in a shower of blood.
I agree, both Blue Gender and Claymore feature very stoic main female leads and an amazing love story drenched in plenty of violence and all of the epic battles you want to see. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.
In the year 2021, mankind was defeated by Gastrea, a parasitical virus, and was forced to live within a wall made of Baranuim monoliths, a metal that is able to subdue Gastrea. Soon, the "Cursed Children" were discovered: children born infected with the Gastrea virus who possess superhuman abilities. Due to the Gastrea virus' intervention, the Cursed Children could only be female. Civil Securities are formed to specialize fighting against Gastrea, operating with the pair of an Initiator, who are cursed children, and a Promoter, serving to lead the cursed children. Ten years after the war, Rentarou Satomi, a high school student and Civil Security member, and his Initator Enju Aihara, receive a secret mission to prevent Tokyo's destruction.
Black Bullet kind of reminded me of few animes. One is Claymore which has similar storyline. Claymore is about these women called "claymores" and they hunt down "Yoma" that cause threat to humans. Claymore is prettty dark, had mature and serious characters, different setting compared to Black Bullet.
Black Bullet and Claymore are two animes about girls that have super powers that fight monsters. In both humans fear and hate these girls because they are also half monsters, both are also full of a good amount of action.
In secret, alien parasites drift downwards toward Earth. Their directive: to take control of a human body and thrive in secret. When a parasite attempts to take over Shinji, an ordinary high school student, he stops it in his arm to save his mind. With the strange power of amorphous muscle, the curious parasite strikes an uneasy truce with Shinji: it will keep him alive and strong so that it may continue living, and will help protect him from the other parasites that might not take kindly to Shinji's mind still actively working. Can Shinji gain the courage to face the parasites and protect humanity? And would it even make a difference if he did?
They both about creatures that eat human flesh.They both have interesting plots and are worth a watch.
Claymore has a similar base idea to Parasyte- the maxim. Humans are not the top of the food chain anymore. the main charactore is basically a combo of both and that is what gives it it's strenght but at the same time creates doubt of it's humanity but instead of parasites you have demons and instead of guns you have claymores ....
Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven now must fight for the destruction or safety of the world. But is this troubled Kamui really the key to saving the world?
