Synopsis:

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.

Both series are about men who don't need to talk much. Their actions speak very loud when they murder anyone they are hired to or people that simply get in their way. Golgo 13 is mainly episodic murder of the week stories where Gungrave has a clear plot through and through but you'll enjoy watching these manly men kick some serious butt.

If you are looking for another anime that will make you shed tears, then try this one.

Notice that neither of this to show will give you "easy" tear; instead you will be moved by an earnest narration, without abused and easy tricks to make you cry (and that usually give me opposite results).

Gun x Sword

Gun x Sword

Evergreen would be a peaceful and prosperous place – if it wasn’t under siege by bandits. Most of the inhabitants have already been killed or driven off, but among the ones remaining is Wendy – a young girl who is intent on finding her kidnapped brother. As the outlaws bring their full arsenal to bear, including one of the dreaded Armor war-machines, the fate of Evergreen looks sealed. However, a slim hope appears in the form of the wanderer Van, who possesses extraordinary martial skills and even an Armor of his own. But Van has motives and goals of his own, which don’t necessarily involve saving besieged towns...

Just the mere look at the animation remind me of each other. Many of the same voice actors are used in both as well. Both also seem to have a moment where it shows you how deep a character's madness has become in each episode.

Well, maybe it doesn't have much in common in terms of plot but both series are action packed, dark shows that leave impact on viewer. The action sequences are very unique and there's no restrain like "I don't want to kill because it's bad" hell no ! This one is much more like "If you wanna kill then kill and shut the hell up, I'm trying to eat". Worth a try.

Highlander: The Search for Vengeance

Highlander: The Search for Vengeance
  • Movie (1 ep x 90 min)
  • 2007

Colin Macleod is dead; or at least, he was for a time. For Colin is an immortal who cannot die and holds a heavy burden: the love of his life, Moya, was crucified in the ancient times of Rome by the conquering Marcus Octavius, and for that he will not rest until he gets his vengeance. Throughout the centuries, Colin dies and is reborn with one wish alone: to kill Marcus where he stands for destroying his reason to live. Now, in a post-apocalyptic present where the world is flooded and monsters roam the streets, Colin has managed to track down Marcus yet again; and with the help of an unlikely prostitute, he might finally have the power to exact his revenge...

Highlander and Gungrave are both similar in their characters, violence, and just general grittiness. Fans of one would likely see the appeal in the other.
