Alucard is a vampire who works for Hellsing – an organization responsible for hunting down and destroying other vampires. In these dark times, whoever is bitten by a vampire turns into a ghoul -- with the exception of Seras Victoria, Alucard’s newly created and appointed apprentice. Now, Seras must serve her master, Alucard and work for Integra Wingates Hellsing. Nefarious vampire activities are being reported throughout England, and it all traces back to the organization named “Millennium”. Will the Hellsing organization, under the command of Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing, be able to prevent a full scale war? Or will the world become a battlefield of destruction?
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 DMC and Hellsing are quite dark and have light elements of humor and their fair share of gore. Each is based around a similar background, as well.
Both anime are about devils. Hellsing talks about lord Alucard, a vampire that works for the hellsing company and that kills other vampires. Devil may Cry talks about Dante, son of the demon Sparda, the most powerful and the best swordman in all the demon world. He has an agency that accomplishes all types of missioons that are concerning devils. His agency is called:"Devil May Cry".
Although a short series, it is not to be missed, the storyline was interestin and the ending was a big supprise. Also Dante reminds me a bit of Alucard, red coat, duel handguns ( cant remember if he actually uses them ), and is nto completely human.
These animes based totally of freakish violence.
Devil May Cry display many gruesome ways to kill and doing it in style. :D
Hellsing OVA is Hellsings superior counterpart that gives a new meaning to the word "gore", "invincibility", and "monstrosity"
Either in Hellsing OVA and DMC, you will see incredibly powerful main character, who is also very charismatic. However, Dante is more human-like than Alucard, certainly. Both of the series have dynamic fights, catching story and mysterious vampires/demons.
Hellsing and DMC are quite alike they both feature violent scenes and demons and both extremley bad ass characters and humorus events. So if you like one of them you'll definetely like the other. ^^
hellsing and devil may cry both has guns (and other weapons) monsters (devils and vampires,ghouls) both main characters are sexy as fuck and have a "little helper", Alucard has Seras and Dante has Patty
In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.
Both series parallel each other so often it's startling.
Both lead males are psychotic monsters, with the insane smiles to prove it, serving under a human master with complete control over them.
The master figures also parallel. Last in a long line of English nobles wit a vendetta against anything threatening their queen. Another parallel, mentioned there, both set in London though Kuro lacks the awesome english dubbing.
Other Parallels appear in the from of Pip/Brad, Rip Van Winkle/Jack the Ripper and so on.
Simliar story mix of demon hunting and enough comedy and action to blance each other out.
Both anime are talking about evil side servants. About masters and servand realationships. About fighting with evil, power, politic and survining.
Oddly enough Hellsing reminds me a little of Kuroshitsuji. I guess its because both master use supernatural beings to do their fighting for them.
Both series also have to stop this insane person from destroying England. Both servants (Alucard and Sebastian.) have their mischeif habbits they like to use on their masters, as well as attempt to provoke a reaction. The only difference really is that Sebastian is more calm as for Alucard he's a bit more active, that and their species.
Ciel and Intregra are also very similar by serving the queen, solving problems in secret. The only difference is that Ciel is more cold and could careless for somebody else and Intregra isn't as cold and well you get the point.
So really if you look closely you can see the similarities besides slight historical information. If you liked Hellsing then you surely might like Kuroshitsuji.
Both main characters - Alucard and Sebastian are unstoppable semi-god creatures, They are obeying orders from their masters also their personal character are similar.
Their masters - Ciel and Integra can also be compared eg. they want their orders to be carried out without failure.And in both cases orders are being issued by the queen.
I am sure that if You enjoyed Hellsing - Kuroshitsuji will be good choice for You too.
In a futuristic and wild west-inspired Japan, there are only two rules: the Number 1 rules the world and only the Number 2 can challenge him; these ranks are worn with pride in the manner of headbands. In these harsh times, Afro is a samurai who is on a mission for revenge – an evil gunman killed his father to become the Number 1, and it’s up to Afro to take him down in a shower of blood and entrails. He has mastered the art of the sword and become Number 2, but many others want to hold his title and the title of Number 1 for themselves. With competition and sword fights at every turn, can Afro finally exact his revenge?
Afro Samurai and Hellsing have attitude in abundance, a flair for well choreographed action sequences and a darker undertone to some unlikely protagonists. Despite differences in genre, they will surely appeal to a similar audience and can be appreciated equally for their detailed design.
These two action packed series should satisfy any anime fan who loves to see well animated fighting sequences. If you're a fan of one, then the other one is sure to please. Blood and gore will liter the screen while sword swings, gun blasts, and heavy ordinance is exchanged.
Both Hellsing OVA and Afro Samurai are introducing us to their plot through flawlessly executed action scenes. Moreover they are overflowing with unique style. Afro's western theme and Hellsing's vampires and 3rd reich are unforgettable experiences, that you will connect with their names long after you have watched them.
If stylish action is what you are looking for, you need not look any further.

While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
Blood, swords, more blood, more swords, more monsters, more secrets. This anime has a really twisted storyline, but it definitely keeps you wanting more.
Pretty similar in genre and have a very similar target audience. Both shows share the theme of monster erradication, both have very violent main characters, and both are under the employment/control of a strange organization
Lots of bloodshed occurs in both Hellsing Ultimate and Claymore. Also, both are animes about a superhuman monster hunter. In addition, both protagonists are also viewed as monsters by the rest of society - despite being their only effective defense against those monsters.
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse.

But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Ok, there are not many similarities between Elfen Lied and Hellsing OVA, but they are both really really gory. If you liked the blood, gore and violence in Hellsing OVA your next anime should be Elfen Lied.
Elfen Lied and the Hellsing OVA share a strong gore ingredient, and both lead characters are mega cool killing machines.
The animation quality is remarkable on both sides and the story lines are remarkably deep; they aren't just like a Saw movie.
Bot elfen lied and hellsing have extreme levels of violence and gore. The main protagonist in both series' also have an air of cold blooded evilness about them which makes for a great atmosphere.
