Dante works as a demon hunter for the office of Devil May Cry, and as he is always in debt he doesn't have the luxury to turn down jobs as long as they pay well. His latest assignment is to be a bodyguard for the young Patty Lowe while she receives her inheritance. During the mission he was able to defeat the demons that got in his way and deliver Patty safely, but upon completion of the mission Dante discovers that Patty will be staying with him – indefinitely! Now, Dante must not only hunt demons and coexist peacefully with other hunters, but also handle the responsibility of taking care of a little girl!
Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.
If you've ever played Tetris, you know how certain blocks fit together to form one complete object. Bleach and Devil May Cry, are two such blocks.
Both these wonderful series have something for everyone. They share in common very stylish fight scenes, lots of blood and violence for those who are into that type of thing. The fight scenes in both usually involve fighting unholy beings of sorts Devils (Devil May Cry) or Hollows (Bleach). Both are also killed by means of the occasional sword that's the size of it's weilder (C'mon, who doesn't like huge swords?).
If you're not into the killing part, both have some Comedy aspects, such as Dante always getting screwed outta a strawberry sundae in Devil May Cry or talking stuffed animals in Bleach. (Though Bleach has a ton more humorous scenes than Devil May Cry)
If you're somebody who likes to think, both anime have a slight mystery esque at times. Weather it be figuring out the voice of a stalker to identify them or find out why a certain race is having an uprising from very sketchy details, there's usually a mystery to solve in both anime...and wen there's not, kick back and watch a fight scene!
Lastly, for he bishounen-loving girls, there are hot guys in both these shows. I havn't met a teenage girl yet who doesn't think Dante's hotter than hell (no pun intended) and there are just a slew of different guys to pick from in Bleach to fit anyones style. Both these anime are also great to come up with fanfiction pairings or doujinshi pairings if your into that.
So why don't you go ahead and play anime Tetris by putting these two blocks together and watching whichever one you haven't seen yet!
It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.
Both DMC and CC are about exorcisms. DMC has better stylish action and Dante, the main character, is a half demon/half human. Chrono Crusade involves a nun with guns and a demon. If you liked either, I believe you'd like the other one too. :)
Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Yagami Light finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
Another Madhouse over-acclaimed show that, imho, only deserves a watch for its awesome technical side: top notch OST, uncanny lighting, very fluid and detailed animation, outstanding directing and much more.
Of course and still imho, if you are looking for a rock hard story with thing like coherency and a well developed character psychology, I wish you good luck searching elsewhere...
Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.
GANTZ equals violence. The atmosphere is different than Devil May Cry, yet without a doubt this is a perfect recommendation! Just like DMC, GANTZ contains tons of hardcore fights with a lot of violence, blood and good animation.
Evergreen would be a peaceful and prosperous place – if it wasn’t under siege by bandits. Most of the inhabitants have already been killed or driven off, but among the ones remaining is Wendy – a young girl who is intent on finding her kidnapped brother. As the outlaws bring their full arsenal to bear, including one of the dreaded Armor war-machines, the fate of Evergreen looks sealed. However, a slim hope appears in the form of the wanderer Van, who possesses extraordinary martial skills and even an Armor of his own. But Van has motives and goals of his own, which don’t necessarily involve saving besieged towns...
These two heroes are nonchelant don't care about much on the outside, yet hide a desire to do what's right. They also have young nuisance girls tagging along they would rather just go away. Although the girls begin to grow on them. These guys are your typical "not much is a challenge" kick ass fighters, that find not everything is simple and not everyone is as they seem. As both animes unroll, the viewer finds out more about the past of the main character which ads vital twists to the plot. Dante and Van seem to be very lazy, yet whenever needed, thrive on the action that comes their way. Hope you enjoy both of these shows.
