Samurai 7

Samurai 7

In an age when samurai enhanced their bodies mechanically, a great war broke out. After the war's end, these "Bandits" (having become mere robbers) have lost their samurai code and now rob villages for their rice and women. The peasants of Kanna Village are filled with despair and agree to hire some samurai to retaliate, but with only rice in their food stores and no money to offer, it seems that time is running out. Now, the villagers must set out to look for samurai willing to accept such a deal -- but are there still such men that abide by the samurai code, and protect the weak?

Can't go wrong with two anime shows based on Akira Kurosawa films! Different in many ways, yet still have the same dramatic intensity.

Ajna

Yet another classic by Akira Kurosawa which became an anime.

Was it worth the decades-long wait? I guess so, even if the original one has still its unrivaled and peculiar magic

Baccano!

Baccano!

It's the 1930s, and Mafia groups fight for supremacy in American cities. Young Firo joins the secretive Camorra group; a meek street boy, Jacuzzi, finds himself the leader of a gang of thugs; an alchemist is producing a liquor of immortality, and a homunculus tries to retrieve it; and upbeat thieves Isaac and Miria head to New York after failing to strike gold in California. They ride the novel train, the Flying Pussyfoot, across the continent. However they find themselves embroiled in a ruckus caused by gangs, terrorists, serial killers, and others as multiple stories intertwine and unfold on this fateful ride. All are haunted and hunted by the legendary Rail Tracer...

If you like either Baccano! or Kaze no Yojimbo you would like the other because each anime revolves around groups of characters that are all closely and just how closely is not revealed until the full story comes to completion.

Both series have a heavy use of trains. Each series has groups of people pitted against each other, be it known to them or not, and are aiming for a prize. Kaze no yojimbo has a central main character, whereas baccano! does not focus have a main character, but rather shows all characters equally.

Spike and George share similar attitudes, a common way of letting things flow. Those two animes have very different context but they hit the same chord in me.

Spiral

Spiral

The mystery of "The Blade Children" is a secret which has remained well-hidden, and has cost some their lives. After Narumi Ayumu's brother disappears in a search for the answer, Narumi is forced to unravel this mystery for himself. Join him in his investigation which will lead him to the secrets of the Blade Children, and to tests of skill which may prove to be fatal.

Cetonis

Spiral and Kaze no Yojimbo are similar in that both Ayumu and George are mired in a mystery where it seems absolutely everyone involved is trying to hide something. (Each, incidentally, searching for information regarding their brothers) They may go about said mysteries in very different ways otherwise - Spiral with an arc-based mind games setup, KnJ with mafia politics - but if you liked the general dynamic of one, go ahead and give the other a go.
