Not really that much similarty in topic between jinroh and blood, but you just cant get enough of the organic/dark atmosphere provided by both. Both also suffer from the trajick shortfall of being too short to fully explore what sould be really really richly rewarding worlds (blood more so for shortness, but oh well) but if this did not bother you then you are goood to go. The secret society thing that is operatingin these really works for me, so there you go.

These are very dark anime with a protagonist who is a monster (one literally, one metaphorically) and masquerades as a human being.

There are a few but very well-made action scenes. Blood has better visuals but Jin-Roh is superiour in its storytelling.

Millennium Actress

Millennium Actress
  • Movie (1 ep x 90 min)
  • 2001

What starts as a simple interview of a legendary actress becomes a journey through the history of Japan. But this is no ordinary lesson; from the perspective of this actress, we learn of the beauty and sadness of love, the pain and regret and joy of the Japanese people and their film, through this film: Millennium Actress.

Though the treatment of the story and feel of Jin Roh and Millennium Actress are rather different, both focus around a fragile relationship between male and female leads, and have a strong revolutionary undercurrent. Also despite being set in modern worlds, feature strong metaphorical and reality bending narratives, if you enjoy the style of one the other should appeal too.

Both films have historical settings and have engaging plots. If you feel like watching something with much more substance than most anime, then these films are for you.

Perfect Blue

Perfect Blue
  • Movie (1 ep x 78 min)

Both Perfect Blue and Jin-Roh didn't quite graps my attention. But i suppose the most important reason i'm recommending it, is because both felt like they could be real movies instead of anime, they have a heavy plot without any fiction in them.
cerberus38

Both films are very plot heavy and can be violent at times. Watching them makes you feel as if you are watching something different from anything you've seen before. If you feel like watching something with much more substance than most anime, then these films are for you.

Spriggan

Spriggan
  • Movie (1 ep x 91 min)
  • 1998

TheBurningCrow

There are strong themes of military power and terrorist activities in both Jin-Roh and Spriggan, as well as great action and violence. If you enjoyed one of them, you will also like the other.

freakzilla
Though Jin-Roh is a lot deeper in the plot and is more slow-paced, the reason i recommend these is that the gunplay reminds me of the other movie, it's really ver simular at the start, than each evolves to it's own different ending.

8 Man After

8 Man After
  • OVA (4 eps x 25 min)
  • 1993

Hazama is a private detective, who becomes fatally wounded in a run-of-the-mill case. In order to survive, Hazama is tranformed into the legendary cyborg 8Man -- to put an end to the cybernetically-enhanced criminals' wave of crime. But as the death count increases, Hazama soon begins to question how much of his real self is left, and if the emotionless 8Man he becomes is really in control...

Another Oshii movie that explores in depth what it means to be human, and the difference that separates humans from their emotions, and what is involved in trying to separate from them. Definitely recommended for anyone who enjoys philosophy and difficult questions of existence.
