In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...
In the time of the Vietnam War, an American military base in Japan is plagued with a rash of killings whose assailant is unknown. Enter Saya, a mysterious young woman who happens to be the last of the vampire race, and has been charged by her government agency employer to investigate the sinister killings. With demons and creatures abounding, Saya must infiltrate a school to put a stop to the bloodshed -- unless the monsters get to her first...
I believe that Hellsing and Blood have very similar elements in them, for one they both have vampire main characters. Also if you're looking for a different way of fighting, both anime series involve a lot of fighting and violence; however their methods of fighting are quite different, from close combat to gun fighting.
I would also wonder what it'd be like if both series crashed into each other as a cross-over, as they are so alike.
both Hellsing and Blood the Last Vampire are about vampires, but the similarities don't end there. Both have a darker tone that focuses a lot on the action scenes which are both exciting and bloody.
A main difference between these two anime is that in "Hellsing" the main fighter against vampires is a guy and in "Blood" it's a girl. In other ways the plot remains the same - one good vampire is fighting a bunch of mindless bad vampires. If you like action, lots of red and black colors in the background, and also spilled blood, you'll like both of these anime.
Blood is an incredibly dark movie. Its blend of 2D/3D animation has given the creators a lot of freedom to experiment with light and shadow. Hellsing's animation has the same techniques involved and it works well, and the anime also has a very sinister mood to it. Neither anime stray far from anger, horror and revenge. If you like horror and fantasy then both will surely tick all of the boxes.
Gory, dark, and fast-paced, Blood The Last Vampire will prove a perfect follow-up to Hellsing. Like Hellsing, it revolves around a mysterious vampire hunting other vampires for a human organisation, although expect in Saya more of the stoic assassin than the cocky deification of Alucard. And despite being a year older, Blood's movie budget ensures smooth-as-silk action that makes Hellsing look clunky and primitive in comparison.
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.
If you liked Hellsing, you'd like Gungrave because both series have a lot of action and are about slaying unnatural beings. Gungrave has the better story of the two but has the same amount of action with plenty of shootouts and explosions.
Both Gungrave and Hellsing are quite dark, have "dead"ly lead characters, deal with the supernatural and have great shootout scenes.
Both Hellsing and Gungrave center on a main character who has a dark past and an even darker future. Also, both characters are talented gunslingers and both are undead, although in Gungrave that wasn't always the case. In both series the mood is prevalently dark, a little more in Hellsing in my opinion. It just so happens that there also is a female side character in both anime that the protagonists try to save. So if you're in the mood for an anime with a good story and a good amount of wild action scenes then these anime are for you.
Both anime feature gun-totting undead types fighting on the side of all that is good. There past eventually catch up to haunt/hinder them.
Both characters have the similar attitudes. The feel of the series are dark. They both have a coffin...though the uses are different. ~.^ They are both packing heat, fighting evil, supernatural enitites, and a conflicted past and a darker future.
Though the two don't share much direct correlation, Gungrave and Hellsing carry remarkably similar feels. Gungrave does carry a slightly more coherent story, however, so it strays a bit from the norms, whereas Hellsing does little to separate itself from a stereotypical vampire story. Still, the nature of both series indicates they're aimed for the same audience, so if you enjoyed one be sure to check out the other.
The main character in both series are quite similar a part from some major differances. But the whole set in both series is quite a dark set and aproach but none the less. If you really liked the gunfights in Hellsing then gungrave is defenately worth your time
Both involve utter bullet magnet protagonists who can withstand hundreds of bullets and still be left without even the slightest of damage.
Plenty of acrobatic fight scenes and dark humour in equal spades.
Both anime have a formidable character, extremely effective, defeating their opponents without hesitation, with very different objectives, but in the end have a connection. It is true that surpasses Gungrave Hellsing, and certainly has a better story, but for those who like the style of Brandon, will certainly like Alucard.
In the distant future, the world lies in ruin and vampires rule the land. Mercenary vampire hunters fight the terrible forces of darkness - for a price; the most notorious of them all being the half-vampire named D. However, despite his actions that help humanity, he finds himself shunned by those he would save. When a girl named Charlotte is kidnapped by the vampire Lord Meier, her father hires D to bring her back - dead or alive. Competing with the vampire hunting Marcus Brothers for the prize, D encounters Meier first; but in the middle of their confrontation, Charlotte calls out Meier's name in worry and Meier reveals that she is accompanying him of her own free will...
If you enjoy the idea of a vampire (or half-vampire in D's case) hunting other vampires, then you will enjoy both Hellsing and Vampire Hunter D. Both also share a sort of similar background idea, but I won't give any spoilers away.
Both are also beautifully animated, truly capturing a dark, gothic (more so in Vampire Hunter D's case) atmosphere.
The main characters of VHD:B and Hellsing are strange and alike. One of them is a good demon/vampire, there is also a girl who wants to be friend with a vampire, a good team of fighters with extraordinary abilities and of course, lots of vampires. :) So if you love good guys fighting bad guys, even if by the end you don't know who is actually good or bad, then both anime are for you.
Both of the main characters in Hellsing and VHD:B have an uncaring side and seem very egocentric at first, have the same indestructible feel (it's more obvious in Hellsing), and the same coolness. Both series have vampires and hunters as well.
Do you like vampire stories?
Then you can't miss Hellsing and VHD:B, with their mind-blowing visuals, great stories, and intense action scenes.
A dark and mysterious character, hunter of vampires and more comfortable in the shadows, both D and Alucard are bloodthirsty warriors who have their own reasons for fighting against the vampire hordes that populate their respective worlds. They also both have some pretty unusual and impressive hidden powers, reserved only for the toughest and darkest of enemies, and share too a slight weakness for accommodating or being sympathetic towards young women.
Although D's world is more removed from the more recognizable and moderns locations of Hellsing, they are still both very gloomy and oppressive, with dark terrors waking in hordes at night and never being too far away from threatening the innocent. Strange beasts have been created in both worlds roam the lands in search of fresh blood, but is there something more behind these attacks for our anti-heroes to discover?
Vampire hunter D: Bloodlust and Hellsing show similarity in the fact both vampires are infact on the side of good and fighting against there own kind, they are both action packed and thrilling.
If you are interested in vampires and vampire mythology, you will enjoy both of these. Both utilise common ideas about vampire mythology such as the age old living for eternity by night and consuming human blood for sustenance. Both also have protagonists which hunt vampires.
At the same time they also put a different spin on the mythology and utilise it in a different way. Hellsing incorporates a modern day mystery involving British and Italian secret organisations. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust incorporates the use of a 'Dunpeal' and explores the conflicting emotions of a half breed vampire/human.
Mochizuki Jirou, the Silver Blade, is an Old Blood. Ten years ago he fought the Kowloon Children, beings who were a threat to mankind and to vampires, in the Holy War. In the present, Jirou is trying to get to the Special Zone, a place where vampires and humans live alongside each other, with his brother; their guide is Mimiko Katsuragi, mediator for humans and vampires. But the brothers soon discover that the surviving Kowloon Children can also gain access to the Special Zone – if they receive an invite from a Royal within it. Who invited the Kowloon Children, and will Jirou be able to defeat them once more?
If you liked one of Hellsing or Black Blood Brothers, you maybe will also like the other. The main characters are both vampires and they are slaying other vampires. Also in both series the fighting style is somewhat alike: they start off using man-made weapons, and later on they will use supernatural weapons as well.
Hellsing, like Black Blood Brothers, is a vampire anime which has guns and vampires hunting vampires. If you like that in one, you'd like the other.
Ok first lets get the obivious outta the way: Both Hellsing and Black Blood Brothers are about vampires and a vampire hunting other vampires. The main characters in both animes wear red suits and distictive hats and have similair attiudes, Besides these common traits both animes share a dark story with an epic feel to them. Both animes have female leads with similar charasitics at cetain points. Bottom line if you enjoy one you wil enjoy the other.
Alucard and Jirou are both full blood vampires, descendants of old bloodlines. The ones they fight are vampires too, but due to their lack of experience and notable younger age the fights become entertaining shows of character and force. If you like vampires these anime are a must.
Both sereis are about the heros among the vampires. While they seem to be able to live relatively unnoticed, things start to change when mysterious forces start to gather.
Both of these anime feature a red-coated vampire with pretty awesome fighting skills. Jirou and Alucard both hunt members of their own kind that threaten human existance/the peace. There is also the female side kick that is only somewhat useful to the protagonist.
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. 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...
You would like this anime because it shares similar themes while delivering them in a totally different environment. Like Hellsing, Elfen Lied packs in the action, blood, suspense, and shock. They are both dark and not for the faint of heart. Elfen Lied has a science fiction setting with a tech overdose, in which a mysterious leading character slowly awakens and learns to unleash her powers. Hellsing, on the other hand, has a cool, confident hero from the start. Both heroes (or are they anti-heroes?) are frightening for what they are capable of, whether they realize it or not.
Both Hellsing and Elfen Lied have similarities in the way the story progresses, and the general idea of some kind of dark being killing a lot of people; but they have enough differences that you don't feel you're watching the same anime over on over again.
Ultraviolence, sexuality, blood and gore; one should find plenty of these in both Hellsing and Elfen Lied, but with a twist. These shows have multiple layers, and behind the glossy animation lies a hidden symbolism, an allegory about the modern world.
Anyone who is into death and darkness would like Elfen Lied and Hellsing. If you like one, I'd highly recommend watching the other.
The shear amount of blood in these animes ties them together. Both Alucard and Lucy slaughter without hesitation, and both are pretty much indestructable. Both of these anime involve an organization that utilizes the same creature it hunts.
