Berserk

Berserk

Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?

The main relationship in these series are both very similar. The way the main plots play out in each series is very similar. Both series are fairly bloody and dark. Finally, each series is placed in the past, making these a good fit.

ninjapintu

There are many similiarities between Denyuden and Berserk like both are set in past with monsters and stuff. There are character similarities as well like Sion and Griffith. Both series are not afraid to show blood and are very dark(though Denyuden does have humor in it). On top of that, both series conclude in a similar way.

sothis

Berserk is far more consistently graphic and Legend is far more political, but I can't help but see the parallels between Griffith and Sion (and their counterparts, Guts and Ryner). If you like watching an ambitious person try to climb the ranks and bring others with them, try these titles out.

Rawrcore

Honestly, Densetsu is the friendlier, and significantly less brutal sibling of Berserk. First and foremost, Griffith and Sion are near identical to each other in almost every category: personality, mannerisms, hell, they even share similar roles in their respected plots.

Simply, same underlying themes, similar plot developments, a similiar medieval European setting, although Densetsu's setting is more fantastical and includes several references to Japan, and finally, both are, in a sense, prequels/introductions to the main plots of each respected manga/light novel.

worosei

Both 'Beserk' and 'Legend of Legendary Heroes' are set in a medieval fantasy setting.

Thematically, both are very similar. Having the two main male leads being friends with one being having a super power, and the other vying to be king and rule the kingdom.

They are filled with political intrigue, great fight sequences, romance and plot twists.  

Both animes are also 'precurors' to the later light novel/manga that follow. 

Beserk has a consistently dark tone, with the main male Guts being just a bad-arse punk in general. LoLH is dark, but has a lot more comedic interlude, and the main character is much more slovenly. The romance in LoLH is also much stronger (and also has harem elements). 

Marioo

they are similar in some ways

mostly the relationship between our 2 male protaginost

and sions goals

but berserk does it waaaay better

Chrome Shelled Regios

Chrome Shelled Regios

In a post-apocalyptic world overrun with great beasts called Filth Monsters, a glimmering dome protrudes from the wasteland. This is Zuellni, a mobile city unique for having a consciousness in the form of ‘electronic fairies’. Moreover, Zuellni is an academy where the next generation of powerful Heavens-Blade wielders gather to pit their strength against each other in inter-platoon competitions. Nina Antalk, military student and leader of the 17th Platoon, is intent on recruiting only the best; thus, when mysterious Layfon Alseif transfers to the academy, she instantly recognizes his abilities and decides he’s the perfect candidate to join her group. However, with a secret past that won’t leave him alone, and unknown powers beyond the academy taking an interest in Zuellni, Layfon joining the team is only the start of all their troubles.

Well, both are from the same creators and feature strong main leads.The main character is pretty strong but doesn't want to fight. Denyuden is more light hearted than chrome shelled regious, still if you like one you should like the other

nkrpyate

Both shows may be in different types of worlds but they both contain the same kind of main characters. Each male lead is skilled at fighting but does not want to fight and is supported by a strong female lead that cares for him.

DidIKnowYou

I just finished watching The Legend of the Legendary Heroes after seeing it recommended on here. I did enjoy it. There is the similar  aspect of the reluctant hero in both shows. AND, both shows leave you hoping that there will be a second season. Saly, both disappoint in that regard. No new season for Chrome Shelled Regios or TLOTLH. Still worth a watch though!

zelight

Both series involves a very strong male lead that has a "tsundere that doesn't show a bit of -dere" kind of a girl by his side...

and both series has quite the same when it comes to their endings, which I don't like, at all..

watch them both and you'll know what I mean..

acepollo

both main charecters have a drark past and save the day  the diffrence is one magical powers set in the past and second one deals in the future with aliens also both dea with military

Eru13

The characters and the story are pretty similar though in different settings. They both have a main male who acts like he's nothing great but actually is a true badass with a dark past.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?

When I first saw legend of the legendary heroes ad, I thought code geass. Both are anti heroic fantasies. Lol Heroes is set in past, Code geass is kinda futuristic yet both of them tackle similar concepts. The protagonists have same seiyu and therefore same awesome evil laugh yet I think sion is more similar to Lelouch. That aside both of them are epic shows, and if you like one, you should definitely give the other a chance.

Meelkor

You would like each other because there is a lot of violance and dead in both series. Both series consider about idealism of peace, which is many times impossible. Sure, there is a lot of fights and war as well. And both series make you think.

eaper

Each of these series focus greatly on a magical eye, the power it brings, and a large plot behind it. Each series has a main plot, but then slowly reveals a larger plot behind it that changes much of what is going on. If you liked Code Geass but want less mecha and a past setting instead of a future/present day setting, Legends is a good place to look.

Galadriel

War, conspiracy, politics, doctrines, idealism, leadership, violence. Such things define Code Geass and LoL. While one of them embarks on sci-fi path the other is set on a fantasy medieval world. What makes them similar is that both main leads seek a world without wars or conflicts and to protect the ones the hold dearest. If you like one without a doubt you will like the other.

TheWanderingZilla

While the main characters of the two series are certainly different (LotLH's mc is a powerful mage who bears an "Alpha Stigma" that causes everyone to label him as a monster, while Lelouche is a young high schooler who lacks any kind of strength, but is extremely intelligent and an excellent leader) the two series did remind me of eachother and share many common elements, including oppressive goverments, characters forced to make choices others regard as evil for the greater good, etc. They also both manage to display comedy quite well, and the main female characters seemed very similiar to me

yamirakuen

1. In both anime, war is a common theme set in a fictional European world. The main protagonists of both anime also seek to create a peaceful world.

2. Both protagonists have a special ability in their eyes. Ryner (Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu) is the bearer of the Alpha Stigma while Lelouch (Code Geass) is the bearer of Geass. Not to mention, both characters have the same voice actor, Jun Fukuyama. 

3. Similar dark themes are used in both anime. War, sacrifice, etc that show humans are real monsters in reality. The main characters strive to change that reality, but both Ryner and Lelouch are also victims of many tragic human-made events that shaped their ideals and values. 

A main difference is that people fight with magic in  Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu while people fight with robots (Knightmares) in Code Geass. However, the themes are very similar that watching one of these wonderful anime will make you think of the other.

The Twelve Kingdoms

The Twelve Kingdoms

Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.

Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu is what you might get if you distilled the country-ruling ethos of 12 Kingdoms and replaced the striking and oft dire chinese mythology with a pretty bit of pop-fantasy that doesn't take itself too seriously.

I strongly recommend Legend of Legendary Heroes' big sister, 12 Kingdoms, to anyone in search of something more substantial, or at least more adult in tone.

k1r1h1t0k1r1

If you like fights and political intrigue in your anime, both of these series should be checked out!  tLotLH is a little darker than 12kokki and there seems to be less emphasis on character evolution in tLotLH, but both are very plot-heavy (perhaps tLotLH beats 12kokki in this field), with strong characters and interesting "twists".

sothis

If you took Juuni Kokki, removed most of the fantastical elements and added a hefty amount of violence, you'd have Legend. While Legend is way way WAY more political than JK, you'll find a similar immersive, winding tale in both.  

Meelkor

Both series contain a lot of politics, violence and wars. DenYuuDen might have a little more comedy scenes but the rest of the story is kinda darker than 12K. 

Slayers

Slayers

Meet Lina Inverse, a mighty sorceress who fights evil in the name of... greed, gluttony and black magic?! When she meets Gourry, a swordsman whose skill with the blade is rivaled only by his stupidity, Zelgadis, a grumpy sorceror who's been turned into a golem, and Rezo, a priest known for his benevolence (with a dark secret), you know her adventures are just beginning!

Legend is a more serious form of Slayers in many ways. With a super powerful swordsman and magician teamed up, often with others, going around and fighting a lot. Legends is a lot more about politics and a lot less about humor, but if you like fantasy mixed with action and adventure, these series go well together.

Rilkar

Both shows are comedies that take place in a fantasy RPG setting. And both shows have a strong likable cast of characters. Also both shows are based off of light novels. If you like one you should watch the other.

Berra2k

These two animes are 15 years apart but when watching legendary heroes I instantly thought of slayers. They both have a fun pair of characters who are similar in both series roaming the conuntryside but legendary heroes is a bit more series. Both have humorous light hearted moments but legendary heroes is much more story driven and a bit more mature.
