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...
Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?
Two men driven by ambition roam the realm in disregard of all others, and care for almost nothing. Gatts and Colin Macleod are both exceptional swordsmen and vicious warriors. If you liked the way a true fighter turns sentimental in one of these series, you would enjoy the other.
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, Light Yagami 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...
How do Death Note and High Lander a Search for Vengeance have in common? Well the first thing is revenge. Both the main characters are searching for it and both have different goals in obtaining them. The main character in Highlander is a misguided fighter of years past while, Light is an inelegance young man that seeks cleansing of the world with Death. After that the similarities do end between the main characters. Light at the end of the series resembles the main villain in High Lander; both try and clean the world with death If you like action then High Lander is your choice while Death Note offers more of a action in high stakes and tension. If you like a romance sprinkled in with your anime then both has that as well; in Death Note it is not as apparent. I recommended these to whoever likes the other.
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.
Unbeknownst to humans, demons from an overlapping dimension walk amongst them in the streets of Tokyo. The balance between the worlds is kept by the crow guardian Karas and Yurine, its master and voice of the living city. However, the time of harmony nears the end as the once-Karas Lord Eko returns. Seeking to purge humanity for its evils, he terrorizes the city with his minions that feast on human blood. The ultimate battle between good and evil awaits; can Yurine and her newly initiated Karas prevail against Lord Eko and protect their city against his monstrous horde?
This might seem like an odd recommendation, but hear me out. Though Karas and Highlander are nothing alike in plot (or even animation), I had the same feeling after seeing each of these: "WOW, THAT WAS PURE AWESOME!!" Not just awesome, folks... pure awesome. From the outstanding animation, kickass action sequences and cinematic feel, both Karas and Highlander are fantastic choices for a flat out cool movie, and fit very well together for a recommendation.
So if you thought one was out-of-this-world entertaining, you'd definitely like the other.
In the distant future, man has advanced into space and spread to worlds throughout the galaxy. On one such planet, Jerra, a brutal war began between the Jerran army and the Nexram - those who opposed a galactic Earth government. To combat the threat the Jerran army created the MDS - Most Dangerous Soldiers - who possess elite fighting abilities. However, one such soldier, MD Geist, was deemed too ferocious and imprisoned inside an orbiting satellite. Now, in the present, both sides have been decimated and the planet lies in ruins. After his satellite falls to the planet, MD Geist wanders the wasteland once more. And after killing the leader of a powerful gang, Geist finds himself in the company of a woman named Vaiya. Together, the two join with survivors of the Jerran army and set forth on a quest to exterminate Death Force - a doomsday device built by the Jerrans - before it activates.
Highlander actually evokes an older style of anime that makes it a good match for MD Geist. The character designs are much more reminiscent of the 80s or 90s as is the style of action. Geist is pure 80s cheesiness at it's finest. Both anime have plenty of action and Highlanders imitation of an older style makes these two a good match.
Highlander does have a bit more plot, but even then the plot is usually just an excuse for more fights.
