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...
Kagura and Yomi are two girls who have a bond that cannot be broken. While once they fought side by side against the supernatural forces that threaten the planet, fate had something different in store for these star-crossed companions. Yet to understand the present, one must first experience the past – a time before Kagura’s involvement with the Supernatural Disaster Prevention Agency. Always cheery and good-natured to a fault, the young Kagura first meets Yomi when she is invited into her home. Over time, the two battle malicious spirits and grow closer together – but soon, more terrifying foes begin to reveal themselves. A swarm of glowing blue butterflies and a mysterious stone are harbingers of darker things to come, and one thing’s for sure: Kagura and Yomi will never be the same.
These two shows are nothing but pure action, with the main protagonist simply being bad ass. If you love fantasy/action/adventure with plenty of violence and fighting, then these two shows are the perfect partners. Expect blood, gore and something not quite of this world.
Two shows that seem to be having some sort of competition as to who can score the goriest overkill the generic ghoul/demon enemies.
Lead characters both have a hell-hound looking familiar used to munch down on that which would threaten the unsuspecting humans way of life.
Each series a group of people who work for the government to eliminate supernatural things from the world without any of it being made aware to the general population. Though in Hellsing it pretty much only deals with vampires and in Ga-Rei -Zero- it's things like zombies, demons, and the like. Both series also features a main character who is above the level of the rest in terms of skill.
Batman: a name known throughout the streets of Gotham City, a name kids tell urban legends about and criminals fear. Batman continues to purge Gotham City from the filth that is roaming the streets. After having received Lt. Gordon’s complete trust, he is implicated in all kinds of police affairs, the first of which is the capture of the mysterious robber referred to as the "man in black". Through this ordeal and many others including an encounter with the Killer Croc and Scarecrow, Batman will try to find out more about the dark city’s underground and make his way to become Gotham’s Dark Knight.
Gotham Knight is a bit more substantial in plot and (generally) features better animation - but the appeal is the same: A dark, violent comic book atmosphere where a badass is hitting back at his enemies.
Both have an anti-hero you love to have and hate how much you love them, which for some- such as myself- is a very important aspect of any drama.
Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?
Well the only thing these series does have in common is the music. If you dig the Hellsing music the Cowboy Bebops music score ain't that far off. Other then that they both share the mercenary part. All though Cowboy Bebop might be a much lighter series it's defenately worth your time
both shows explore the dark gritty side of immortality. focusing on the trials of the undead. they explore the longing for companionship that all people feel, and how much more so it can become with a infinity longer lifespan. large amounts of blood and gore coupled with a supernatural theme a plus for and classic acult fan.
Both Helsing and Dance in the Vampire Bund both have other things in common besides... well... vampires. Both tell a wonderfully written story of love and lust. If you liked Dance in the Vampire Bund, you'll love Helsing.
Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Yagami Light finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
If you've liked Hellsing, then you will probably like Death Note as well. Both anime have a dark ambiance and revolve around the theme of purging the world of evil. Arucard does so by killing ghouls and vampires, whereas Light kills criminals.
because they both have a similar charm. Even though one is about vampires and the other one is about human beings, you can relate them, they are both about the line between life and death.
