Blue Gender

Blue Gender

In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.

Both of these anime are dark, depressing, and morbid, with a well-developed plot and a strong, coherent story arc. Blue Gender is more sci-fi, where Gungrave is more of an alternate present; but while both are quite dramatic, don't expect to walk away from either one with a smile on your face.

Gankutsuou and Gungrave have a strong plot about friendship and betrayal. Both keep things serious and don't offer a lot of action or comedy. I definitely feel that these appeal to the same audience.

Both have a very strong plot and a very skilled assassin as the main character. It is hard not to link these two anime. Gungrave has a bit more character development though and a different drawing style.

Both Death Note and Gungrave have a gloomy dark atmosphere, well-developed characters and an even better story. Gungrave has a bit more action though, whereas Death Note sticks to developing its story more.

Gungrave and s-CRY-ed are both very action-packed. If you like violence and liked Gungrave, I strongly recommend watching s-CRY-ed. They both have a very similar concept: the main characters become enemies, but then team up for a cause.
