Baccano!

Baccano!

It's the 1930s, and Mafia groups fight for supremacy in American cities. Young Firo joins the secretive Camorra group; a meek street boy, Jacuzzi, finds himself the leader of a gang of thugs; an alchemist is producing a liquor of immortality, and a homunculus tries to retrieve it; and upbeat thieves Isaac and Miria head to New York after failing to strike gold in California. They ride the novel train, the Flying Pussyfoot, across the continent. However they find themselves embroiled in a ruckus caused by gangs, terrorists, serial killers, and others as multiple stories intertwine and unfold on this fateful ride. All are haunted and hunted by the legendary Rail Tracer...

DeathCrunch

Similar stories of guns and gangs, told in a similar sporadic and non-linear fashion.

Both feature large casts and focus on one persons story at a time. Though one story always crosses over with another.

Good for both fans of non-linear story telling and  mafioso type anime.

HasseRovdjur

Both Baccano! and Dogs are heavy with life-of-crime/mafia elements, though done with tounge in cheek and they both sport a colourful cast of characters. The storytelling is similar, as well.

If you liked one for that reason you should check out the other.

JAhU

If you liked the third episode of Dogs, you should check Baccano. They do feel alike, but I can't quite explain why.

Gungrave

Gungrave

Brandon Heat and Harry MacDowel were best friends who lived by the law of the street, until one day they picked a fight with the wrong people and their life of freedom was suddenly taken away. With no one to turn to and nowhere to run, the choice to join Millenion, the city's most powerful syndicate, seemed like an offer they couldn't refuse. Now, amidst heartache, tragedy, and utmost betrayal, Brandon must take up the gun and help Harry climb the ranks of Millenion to succeed, in order to protect the people he loves, even if it means killing countless others in the process.

sothis

I'm making this a one way recommendation because Gungrave is way, way, WAY better than Dogs on all levels. It has a cohesive story, better animation and overall is far more engaging. If you liked the gritty crime elements of Dogs, check out the far superior Gungrave.

DeathCrunch

Although GunGrave is far longer and deeper (at the moment) the series hold common elements in gang warefare, loyalty and betrayal.

The diffrence comes in the latter half of GunGrave being somewhat sci-fi infected and Dog's being more comedy centered at some points.

Though the first OVA of Dogs might as well be a direct rip it's so similar.

NimirRa

Though not necessarily equal in quality (though both shows are good), these two share the similar themes of loyalty and betrayal; people with dark pasts in rough situations and the ways they chose to overcome their plights.

Togainu no Chi

Togainu no Chi

Once the undefeated champion of the street fighting game Bl@ster, Akira now fights for an entirely different cause. Having been framed for murder and given the choice of life in prison or exoneration for a price, he chose to take the latter, heading for the lawless district of Toshima. There, Akira is to fight in Igura, a game where the winner of each match receives special tags, and the loser loses his life. Alongside his longtime friend Keisuke and experienced Igura competitor Rin, Akira must now battle it out in Igura, try to avoid the sadistic enforcers that roam the streets, and complete his mission: to defeat Il Re and take down the drug company Vischio.

Nocturnalgloria

Dogs and Togainu take place in highly violent urban environments where crime runs rampant. As such, both casts battle in a shady underground with danger never far. Dogs has an element of comedy to the hopeless mood but both cover the same ground in that they do not shy from dark themes. It should be mentioned that Togainu suffers from severe animation issues, unfortunately.

Melodux

Both Dogs and -NoChi deal with the underground of futuristic cities. They both are animated using gray tones, giving the whole thing a "gray look" {it's always raining, or is cloudy in both animes}. The plots are darker and deal with gloomy themes such as being able to kill another person and moral values. I recomend the Dogs manga more than the OVA, because you get to go more in-depth, and a forewarning, -NoChi was supposed to be made after the BL game. But overall, I think that if you like one, you should give the other a shot.

Black Lagoon

Black Lagoon

Rokuro Okajima is a small-time salaryman 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 found one of these show's (very stylized) gangster action coupled with more introspective parts where the characters backgrounds and motivations are explored appealing you might want to check out the other one.

Dogs:B&C and Cowboy Bebop are fun action-romps that feature style over substance. Also, the main characters from each are the cool/jaded older guy, the sexy badass chick, the hot guy with a mysterious past, and the red-headed comedic relief.
