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...
Ouri is an orphan who was raised by Keisei, a man he considers to be his older brother. One night, Ouri finds a strange wounded girl in the temple of the orphanage. Cold and covered in scars, Ouri initially thinks that she is dead – that is, until a mysterious talking cat tells him that she is a Shikabane – a corpse. After secretly watching Keisei heal the girl without explanation, Ouri decides it's time to leave the nest. However, he has picked a poor time, and he soon realizes that he's tangled in a strange, supernatural web. Why does Ouri continually meet this girl as she hunts monsters? What does Keisei have to do with it all and what exactly is her mission?
If you've you've seen Hellsing and have some strange fascination with the undead, you would definitely enjoy Corpse Princess (also titled Shikabane Hime). These two anime share the same undead and dark tone, but while one has vampires, the other has zombies (known as shikabane) and the undead zombie killers (shikabane hime). The voice actors are great, the characters are better, and the storyline will keep you interested and entertained throughout the entire thing. The only thing better than gun weilding vampires is ass-kicking zombie chicks. Check it out!
After the death of his brother Keisei, Ouri vows to take on the task of becoming a Contracted Priest and fight alongside of the Shikabane Hime Makina. But Makina has doubts about Ouri and his skills as a Priest. Grieving the loss of her old Priest, Makina still clings to the memory of Keisei, which could very well lead to her destruction. Will she accept Ouri as her new Priest and allow him to fight at her side, or will Makina let revenge consume her as she hunts for the rogue Corpses that killed Keisei?

The adventures of the fiery-haired, all-powerful and flat-chested Lina Inverse continue, as she and her crew of misfits find new friends, a mysterious and secretive priest and a vengeful and love-crazy princess! As they battle monsters that wish Lina dead, she and the gang search for a bible that may tell them how to defeat them, yet it eludes them at every turn. The secrets of the Claire Bible contain all the knowledge of the Water Dragon Lord, but who are these sinister forces that hunt Lina and what do they want?
These series are simular as in the action vs. other powerful creatures/demons. As in Slayers, Lina Inverse a human, loves to fight using a strong Dragon-Slay magic attack in almost every episode vs. demons. To counter that -- discording in Hellsing, Alucard who is a demon(vampire), who fights others for a master.
The genras are simular and so are the personas. The only difference is that Lina Inverse likes money, food; and fights strong against all--even the weak. Alucard doesn't eat, he doesn't need money; and he has limitations to how much power he can use vs. weaklings. Mostly, these series are very good.
In a world of science, sorcery is rediscovered and rapidly adopted in all areas of industry – but at a high price: an invisible pollution is spreading out across the world. Those who do not take proper precautions become infected, lose their sanity, and become demons. The Sorcery Administration Bureau, along with their Tactical Sorcerers, monitor magic uses and respond to any demonic outbreaks that occur. In this world, Ray Otto is a rogue tactical sorcerer who hunts down demons with reckless abandon. Given that he always gets the job done, the administration generally lets his activities slide. Together with the mysterious girl Kapel Theta, Ray risks his life and humanity to destroy demonkind... when the price is right.
Hellsing and Strait Jacket have a number of similarities. On one level we have the organizations, which set out to destroy otherworldly abominations. In the case of Hellsing, these happen to be vampires, while in Strait Jacket they happen to be demons.
A greater similarity can be made between the leading male characters; both Alucard and Ray are individuals that fight not because it should be done, not because they are ordered to, but because it is fun. Each individual immensely enjoys their work, and are extremely reckless at times carrying it out.
Watchers of Hellsing should definately try out Strait Jacket. Likewise, if you have enjoyed Strait Jacket, you should try watching Hellsing.
