While Noir and El Cazador are not a sequel/prequel of each other, they are both made by the same team and share the theme of "girls with guns". If you like the animation, story and music of one of these series, you will definitely like the other one.

As far as differences, El Cazador is quieter and less action-packed, and Nadie is not a "superhero" like Mireille. Also, Ellis looks more lively than Kirika.

Seiryu Seiryu says...

Both of these anime have the same theme: girls with guns. You also get the same feeling from them, and the music is quite similar (both are done by Yuki Kajiura).

In Noir, the girls earn their living by killing targets as assasins, and in El Cazador as bouty hunters. They're not the same, but still quite similar. The girls in these two anime are always in danger and must fight against many foes, using guns as their weapons.

RinTosaka RinTosaka says...

Both Noir and El Cazador were created by the same team and have the same theme: girls with guns. Once you watch one and pick up the other, you'll see the similarity.

These two anime both feature two heroins attempting to understand themselves so as to better understand their futures. Most importantly though, these two shows are part of Bee Train's, Girls with Guns trilogy. The two shows, more in Noir than in El Cazador, the two females must look within to decide whom they wish to be and if they are willing to fight for those identities. I strongly recommend one if you have already seen the other.

Dulgon Dulgon says...

Both series are made by the same team (Bee Train). They are part of the "girls with guns trilogy" and both have a great soundtrack by Yuki Kajiura.

uberrig uberrig says...

The similarities between Noir and El Cazador are vast, yet fresh for each series (perhaps because of the animation, not sure). Overall each series is episodic in nature with final goal in mind, it's 2 women in a senpai<->kohai relationship, with the younger having stronger latent abilities than the senior, and last, but not least, the music. If you like the action/drama musical score of either series, you'll love it in the other. It compliments both shows quite well for their episodic nature.

Kastrophee Kastrophee says...

Both shows have the same makers and the same theme in mind, girls with guns. Two female protagonists are on a journey of discovery, gun in hand and mysterious foes doing everything they can to hinder them. From the animation to the music and to the bloodless violence these shows fit into each others shadow like a glove. The only difference worth mentioning is that each show strived to reach a different flavor, this they certainly achieved.

LordIndy LordIndy says...

The similarities between the two are almost scary, this is to be expected considering the same group also produced Noir and Madlax. While slower, Noir is significantly better executed and mayfeel like an upgrade to El Cazador De La Bruja.

  • same theme (guns, advantur; but <el cazador de la bruja> has a bit of comedy and less dark and gloom than <noir>)
  • both girls have memory loss and is a bit weird

Yenya Yenya says...

Madlax and El Cazador are not a sequel/prequel of each other (although there is a small reference to both Noir and Madlax in one of the first episodes of El Cazador), but they share the same theme of "girls with guns", and are made by the same team of the studio Bee Train. So if you liked the music, animation, and character design of one of these series, you will probably like the other one as well.

I have only seen 8 episodes of El Cazador so far, so I cannot tell about the end (I did not like the last few episodes of Madlax).

Seiryu Seiryu says...

El Cazador and Madlax have similar themes: girls with guns. They also both have two female leads. They have the same type of music and a similar setups.

In both series, the older girl is a gun-fighter (in Madlax a bodyguard; in El Cazador a bounty hunter) and has to protect the younger one from many enemies. As the story goes on, the bond between the two girls grows stronger. So, if you like one of these anime, I'm sure you will like the other.

avidkid10 avidkid10 says...

These two anime both feature two heroins attempting to understand themselves so as to better understand their futures. Madlax along with Margret must travel through dangerous lands to find the truth. El Cazador also has this with Nadie fighting to protect her only source of stability, Ellis. I also recommend Madlax as it is part of Bee Train's Girls with Guns trilogy.

Dulgon Dulgon says...

Both series are made by the same team (Bee Train). They are part of the "girls with guns trilogy" and both have a great soundtrack by Yuki Kajiura.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

both being the works of the same studio, Bee Train, Madlax and El Cazador explore the same theme "girls with guns". If you liked the animation, character design, sound and story from one of these 2 works you will enjoy the other one as well since they are quite similar. In both shows the main leads are struggling to retrieve their lost memories, encountering obstacles as they get closer to their goal.

LordIndy LordIndy says...

The similarities between the two are almost scary, this is to be expected considering the same group also produced Madlax and Noir. Madlax, in a weird way, may feel like an upgrade to the repetition and childishness of El Cazador De La Bruja.

sloggerK sloggerK says...

Two girls, one with a gun, one still quite young, fleeing their agressors. Locations based on Mexico. The main difference is Michiko to Hatchin seems to lack the supernatural elements of El Cazador.

Koveras Koveras says...

Both shows are set in Latin America and revolve around two girls: an young, inexperienced and naive one and an older, competent one who protects her. However, where El Cazador is lighter and more supernatural, Michiko to Hatchin attempts to be realisitic and, at times, grim.

wamitomo wamitomo says...

Both have the "girls with guns" theme- Nadie from El Cazador and Michiko from Michiko to Hatchin are both excellent fighters.  Both Nadie and Michiko are also protecting their partners.  Michiko to Hatchin may be more action-based, but both are great shows.

Intensive gun-fights, shitty business, confusion. There is much more in common between Black Lagoon and El Cazarod de la Bruja than you can see at first sight! Both anime are much more enjoyable than you may think, especially if you don't like this particular genre. But don't turn your back! Some (already banal) themes are proposed in them. These include friednship, overcoming hardships. There are also similarities between the main characters - Rock (Black Lagoon) and Elis (El Cazador de la Bruja), but these are the similarities between the circumstances they are in that tie them together. Both Rock and Elis find their companions during experiencing hardships and in time when they most need help. After that they both enter a world they don't even expect to find.

LordIndy LordIndy says...

Girls with guns, enough said. While El Cazador De La Bruja is slower and has a central story, Black Lagoon is a pure quality action-fest. They may not be two peas in a pod, but if El Cazador was fun but you wanted more action, then Black Lagoon may be what you're looking for.

Trigun

Trigun

“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.

cbsgoju cbsgoju says...

Both animes are very similar. First both main characters deal with guns. Second they both sort of have a wild wild west type of scene. Third both main characters have a bounty on their head with other people constantly coming after them to claim the reward. Lastly both are very good, but Trigun is more famous.

ch0p5tixmast3r ch0p5tixmast3r says...

Both are Western themed series. Main characters are both gun-toting and tend to not kill their enemies. Trigun is funnier, but both have elements of humor in them. There is also a fantasy theme in both, as in Trigun Vash is more than human, as is Ellis in El Cazador. If you like one, you would probably like the other.
