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.
Farfetched as it may seem to some, being the true enjoyer of superpowers as I am (with some typical shounen elements as well), I do say that Bleach and Advent Children share some similiarities that not only lie in the great swordfights. If you haven't watched the other yet, give it a try.
Advent Children has a lot of sword fighting in it. If you liked it because of that you should definitely try out Bleach. The Shinigami are sword-wielding spirits, the animation is good and the story is even better.
In this anime did you like: A main character with a big sword? Fight scenes? A deep plot? Animes that you can realte to in some way?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then no doubt this Anime is recommended for you.
Both these anime have all these aspects in them, and if you enjoyed one. You will probably like the other.
Now I've watched little Bleach recently, but I must say, there are some noticible things that correlate these two togther.
Big swords, Quick fightin, Pretty slick bad guy. If you enjoy any of these in an anime, then these are the things to watch.
Both Cloud and Ichigo have big ass swords that are about the length of their entire body. Oh, and there is action . . . with big swords. If you like weaponry, then these are the shows for you.
Big swords, action-packed fight scenes, and a group of individuals with unique powers. The main characters have gravity-defying hair and a penchant for being moody. Add in a boss-fight by someone disenchanted with his role in life, and you have similar anime.
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!
Both Devil May Cry and FF7:AC have great action-packed fight sequences, and have characters which use a good mix of guns and swords for weapons. Both have a male lead with a troubled past and both are based from games. Both include fighting large and powerful beasts as well.
The sheer and awesome fights; nothing more is needed to recommend these two anime for each other. The 'coolness' factor and the very nice animation bring about a lovely atmosphere which is quite similar. DMC and FFXVII: AC are both definitely worth watching.
The action packed game based series Devil May Cry and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children both involve intense fighting scenes. Also the male leads have a hidden past that comes to light turning into unique events.
These two share some basic elements. They both have male lead characters. These characters are essentially both 'pretty boys' who wield swords. There are characters that use a variety of more modern weapons, such as guns and bombs. In both, the characters have to fight creatures/demons. Both include witty banter and badass fight scenes along with some pretty entertaining background music.
A sword fighter with a dark past who works with a group of fighters with extraordinary powers. Both also come from games, so much of the action is based on grand-scale battles.
Unbeknownst to humans, demons from an overlapping dimension walk amongst them in the streets of Tokyo. The balance between the worlds is kept by the crow guardian Karas and Yurine, its master and voice of the living city. However, the time of harmony nears the end as the once-Karas Lord Eko returns. Seeking to purge humanity for its evils, he terrorizes the city with his minions that feast on human blood. The ultimate battle between good and evil awaits; can Yurine and her newly initiated Karas prevail against Lord Eko and protect their city against his monstrous horde?
"Karas" and "FF VII: Advent Children" are dealing with special times in the lives of the heroes, times of change, decision and action. There was a lot of attention to details in developing the characters, the stories support the art beautifully and the ending is surprising. Some of the best fights in anime, state of the art FX, great music for both of them. Action fans will probably get obsessed with these.
Both films are very action based and make good use of CG in them. If you like the CG fight scenes in anime then this is the one for you to watch.
Karas and FF7AC, hands down, are action-packed popcorn flicks with plenty of eye candy to go around. They dont have similar stories, but you'll watch both and think "wow, that was badass!"
I strongly prefered Karas: the Prophecy to the exceedingly fanboyish FF7AC, but fans of one will probably enjoy the other.
In the two movies Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Karas both involve intense times of change with hardships along the way. The exciting fighting scenes involve a great deal of action taking the viewer through the lives of the characters.
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
Both stories have thier serious sides. They also have thier touching sides, and a drop of funny in them. Both have a maincharacter that you can relate some of thier feelings about things to yours.
Both of these anime have a deep plot, the main character in some form of inner turmoil and a large scale problem.
In both these anime you are made to symapthise with the main character and support them along the way. Another similarity is that in both of these shows, we see what the opposition is up to just that bit more than the protaganist(s) do. This gives us a more wide spread view of events and makes for a different way of enjoying the show.
If you enjoyed one, the other is definately for you.
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and Fullmetal Alchemist have serious sides along with a well-balanced sense of emotional sides. The main characters inner feelings and problems are seen on a larger scale in both of these shows but have a back up in the supporting characters around them.
In a world where mankind is at the brink of destruction, one lone scientist has concocted the means to save it: bioroids. These artificial humans coexist with humans in the city of Olympus, under the watchful eye of the supercomputer Gaia -- to stabilize society. The military strongly opposes their use, however, and the elite soldier Deunan may hold the key to saving both the human race and the lives of the bioroids. Teamed up with an old friend, Briareos, Deunan must race against the clock to discover the secret of the Appleseed before countless lives are tragically lost...
I watched "FFVII: Advent Children" after watching the end of the Final Fantasy VII videogame. Like the anime movie "Appleseed", the animation was state-of-the-art and the music was of course great (for fans of Final Fantasy music). The Advent Children plot on the other hand... it was "cheesy" (unrealistic). I thought Appleseed had a much better plot while Advent Children had much better music. Both had state-of-the-art graphics and lots of action (fight scenes) so they should have similar reactions. Advent Children was like the Matrix in an anime while the Appleseed movie was just artsy. As a fan of great visuals I highly recommend these movies.
Both are great movies with amazing CGI animation and a serious feel to them, with the occasional laugh. A futuristic setting is where they both take place, and the main characters are both trying to destroy a great evil in their respective worlds. Both are wonderful pictures and are quite the experience to watch.
