Like Jin-Roh, Voices of a Distant Star is another great depressing story. However, it's not as violent and is not set in space, but it is still a very sad and brooding anime.

Legend Of The Dog Warriors has great action and violence, as well as deep story, good plot and character development. The progression is very much the same as in Jin Roh. If you liked one of these anime, you would probably like the other.

Could you ever fall in love with a killing machine? Both Saikano and Jin-Roh test ask that question and carry it out beautifully. From start to finish you will witness the development of the most tragic romance known to man. If you are in the mood for a slightly melancholy anime, I highly suggest you try these two out.

If the interpersonal drama in MSG 08th MS Team is what drew you to the series, then you can go even further and take a look at Jin-Roh: the Wolf Brigade. A modern retelling of an old fairy tale, Jin-Roh is dark and moody, a grim exploration of human nature.

Jin Roh is like a similar but darker version of Metropolis. They're both soaked in that sad atmosphere which also makes them so good.
