Synopsis:

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?

Both series while they are different on a couple of levels they are the same in that each main character are fighters who is very skilled in the use of the sword and have somewhat similar backgrounds.  While Karas tends to be more towards the fanasty element and Kenshin tends to be more realistic they both have nicely done fight scenes and both are done rather nicely visually.  Each series is also fairly violent and not afraid to become bloody.  If you liked one then you'll probably like the other.

Created by Tatsunoko Production at the turn of the 21st century, Soul Taker and Karas are dark spins to the superhero archetype fashioned by Tatsuo Yoshida in the 1970's. Karas has a lot more going in the eye candy department, but Akiyuki Shinbo's direction in Soul Taker makes up for it.

Speed Grapher

Speed Grapher

Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?

A strange city, strange enemies, and unusual powers. A conspiracy, a perversion at the city's core. These animes share both epic battles between bizzarre montstrosities and their protagonists as well as themes of vanquishing corruption.

If you want an hour and a half of amazing fights, great directing and dark, trippy imagery, you can't go wrong with either anime, and if you like one, you'll definitely like the other. KARAS is a lot newer and therefor prrettier, but both have steller animation.
