Synopsis:

Gun Frontier: a sacred land for true men; a place where the weak aren't allowed to dream! Tochiro the samurai, the former sea pirate Harlock, and the mysterious Shinunora are searching the western front of the USA. They must face bandits, corrupt sheriffs and many other dangers; but even if it means tearing Gun Frontier from end to end, Tochiro will stop at nothing to find a lost clan of Japanese immigrants. It is they who can help him locate and rescue his sister, a master weapon smith who was kidnapped for her abilities.

Kino's Journey

Kino's Journey

In another world, there exist many countries, each with different cultures, customs, and traditions. From technological marvels to folk legends, each location yields a vast wealth of insight of its people: their hopes and their dreams, their failures and fears. Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.

If you enjoyed the travel part as well as those weird towns in Gun Frontier, Kino's Jurnney is a good title for you. Not only Kino travels to many weird places and meets weird people, but the show itself contains action scenes much superior to those found in Gun Frontier (gunfights included).

There are a total of 3 Titles for Kino's Journey. But I'd recommend watching them in chronical order.

Everything in the worlds are just the way they are, and all the characters in both animes want to fight fate per say.

Becomming un-normal outcast you could say are in both of the animes, and thats what gives the main characters a good demeaner.

They both deal with trying to fill in this void that doesn't return anything that you put into it, and the characters try to change the way fate works.

Trying your hardest will adventually cause gravity. I'd Recommend these animes all the way, I know that you might notice I might have noted one of these animes as want to watch as I haven't rewatched it yet... I'm just going off what I recall from memory when I was younger....

Gun Frontier and Cyborg 009 seemed pretty good to compare them to each other.

Both of the series involves working to a goal, and the only way to do this is by fighting. In Gun Frontier you have a samurai who wants to get his little sister. In Cyborg 009 you have a group of people who just want to escape and help the other future cyborgs.

If you liked one, then you of course will like the other.

The characters from Gun Frontier are like perfectly mached with the characters from Harlock Saga.

I some times have to question which anime I was watching, because of the simular design and the way they act.

If you like the characters from either of the series, then I'd recommend Gun Frontier and Harlock Saga.

In Gun Frontier the main characters are searching for a lost clan of Japanese immigrants that were kidnapped. As in Galaxy Express 999, Tetsuro wants to become a robot and become immortal. Both Series are after a goal and work to that goal.

Bot Trigun and Gun Frontier have this western feel and combine comedy with action. Also GF contain some Trigun jokes, so if you liked one, the other might interest you as well.
