What do all demon hunters have in common? They are quiet and cool and are almost always linked somehow to those they hunt. It's true for DMC, and it's true for Blood. If you enjoyed the below-average fare that was DMC, then let Blood raise the bar to stellar levels; it delivers on excellent pacing, an interesting plot and action, action, action!
Blood is a subdued, subtle, and disturbing anime, but if you liked the style of vampire conflict portrayed, then you may enjoy Devil May Cry's demon analogue.
Both of these anime involve protagonists that hunt their own kind, dishing out well animated punishment with extra helpings of blood and dismemberment. But Devil May Cry is episodic and has cartoony and humorous elements, while Blood the Last Vampire is a short film dense with action-horror. They both are worth watching for fans of dark anime.
Both Devil May Cry and Blood The Last VAmpier tell a story of sombody who fights with demons but also with his own weaknesses. What is more both show also a story of main characters companions. Even the ending is quite simillar but i won't tell what will happend.
In a hunt cannibalistic sense (without the eating part) Blood the Last Vampire and Devil May Cry are on the same level, both of the protagonists have to hunt their own kind and be one step ahead of them to survive.
In a futuristic and wild west-inspired Japan, there are only two rules: the Number 1 rules the world and only the Number 2 can challenge him; these ranks are worn with pride in the manner of headbands. In these harsh times, Afro is a samurai who is on a mission for revenge – an evil gunman killed his father to become the Number 1, and it’s up to Afro to take him down in a shower of blood and entrails. He has mastered the art of the sword and become Number 2, but many others want to hold his title and the title of Number 1 for themselves. With competition and sword fights at every turn, can Afro finally exact his revenge?
Afro Samurai might not have all of the demons Devil May Cry has, but there are plenty of elements to appeal to the same fans. The atmosphere brought about by the main characters, the great fights and the lovely soundtracks that accompany them will, without a doubt, get your adrenaline flowing once again.
Both animes are full of action packed fights and definitely tons of blood. They have sort of similar main characters, except I never found Afro's character that badass, or at least not as much as Dante's, but both deliver nicely animated fights if that's what you're looking for. The only real differences between them is that while Afro Samurai is one story spread across 5 episodes, Devil May Cry is very episodic, which may put you off. Also maybe it's because I haven't watched the final episodes of Devil May Cry, but it also seems that Afro Samurai has plenty more in terms of action and fights as Afro is pretty empty when it comes to dialogue anyways. If you enjoyed the action in any of the two, I'd recommend the other! Just don't expect anything close to the game if you're planning on watching Devil May Cry, it's way different, in a negative way sadly, but still check it out.
Both of these shows share awesome bloody action scenes, a good soundtrack, a dark atmosphere, a kickass main character, but a somewhat weak storyline. Fans of one would probably enjoy the other.
Okajima Rokuro is a small-time salary man who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.
If you liked Devil May Cry, you would like Black Lagoon because both have great storylines that are similar to each other. They both have violent missions and great action, so if you like gun-fights, blood, and death with some comedy and romance, then you'll love Black Lagoon.
Both anime involving lots of high octane action scenes that primarily involve guns as the weapon of choice of the main characters. Cool characters and in general a whole lot of sweet gun toting action.
What ties these two together (other than the massive gun fights) is the animation style. Both were produced by Madhouse, and the animation is very similar. Characters are also fairly similar in attitude.
Rin Okumura is a seemingly ordinary boy living at the Southern Cross Boys' Monastery. One day, however, Rin encounters a boy who has been possessed by a demon. Amidst the struggle, he not only awakens latent powers sealed within him, but also learns that he is the son of Satan! No longer able to stay under the protection of the church and with his very existence straddling the line between human and demon, Rin decides to fight against his parentage and joins the True Cross Order as an exorcist. Now, the teen must attend the True Cross Academy and begin special exorcist training alongside his new comrades all while keeping his identity a secret; but can the son of Satan really become a true exorcist?
they have the life as exorcists but devil may cry is more into exorcising while blue exorcist consists of school life and exorcism and has a sense humor kinda like a double personality, right?
A demon-hunter/exorcist with demon blood who uses a sword to take down demons. Add in the abilities of the protatonist's friends/acquaintances, and you have some pretty interesting fight scenes. The protagonist is also a fairly sarcastic person with a tendency to cause collateral damage during a fight.
Both of animes are demon tagged animes. Both of main characters in these two animes try to defeat Beasts or devils.
“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
If you like the characters' that is one side serious and another funny, and if you like the themes 'to protect human from harm' and 'love and peace', these are the anime you have to watch.
If you liked Devil May Cry or Trigun, then you may easily like the other. Both boast similar artwork and fighting styles and both deliver a fun storyline filled with action-packed sequences. They both revolve around a main character who is terribly misunderstood and tug on the sympathy strings in the audience.
Both are supernatural anime that are episodic in nature and include some all out brawls involving an expert gunfighter. The main character likes to pretend he doesn't care much, but his skill and determination in battle proves otherwise. Both protagonists also have a fairly interesting and dramatic past.
