Gun Frontier: a sacred land for true men; a place where the weak aren't allowed to dream! Tochiro the samurai, the former sea pirate Harlock, and the mysterious Shinunora are searching the western front of the USA. They must face bandits, corrupt sheriffs and many other dangers; but even if it means tearing Gun Frontier from end to end, Tochiro will stop at nothing to find a lost clan of Japanese immigrants. It is they who can help him locate and rescue his sister, a master weapon smith who was kidnapped for her abilities.
Gun Frontier and Cyborg 009 seemed pretty good to compare them to each other.
Both of the series involves working to a goal, and the only way to do this is by fighting. In Gun Frontier you have a samurai who wants to get his little sister. In Cyborg 009 you have a group of people who just want to escape and help the other future cyborgs.
If you liked one, then you of course will like the other.
Henrietta is a young girl who works for a "welfare group" that does the government's dirty work. Cybernetically-enhanced and specially-trained, she is one of a group of elite hit-girls, remorseless killers with no memories of their past. Jose, her partner, has taken care of her since she was brought into the organization following the murder of her family, and struggles between his affection for her, and his opposing duty to his employer. But, time is running out.. for with each bullet they fire, Henrietta and the other girls lose a little more of their humanity.
Gunslinger Girl and Cyborg 009 might have different plots but the premise is the same. Normal human beings are basically taken away by a mysterious organization and are given new parts to amplify their abilities and become superhuman.
Hiroshi Ozora has always wanted to be a superhero, so he decided to do the only logical thing: create a transforming power suit called Moldiver! With it, he can fight the forces of the maniacal Professor Machinegal, who desires all of the rarities of the world for his private collection - but when his sister Mirai accidentally changes the suit's design to that of a beautiful girl, Hiroshi's plan goes terribly awry! Now, Hiroshi and Mirai must share the suit, alternating between manliness and beauty, to put a stop to Professor Machinegal!
Though Cyborg 009 is about a female assassin and Moldiver is about two people who share a high-powered suit, both have the same campy, 60s-style feel to them as far as the villains go. This might be a stretch, but try out one if you liked the other.
