Ryo Takatsuki injured his right arm in an accident years ago. The resulting surgery brought about some unexpected, but not entirely unwelcome changes -- enhanced healing along with the presence of a superweapon dubbed "ARMS" in his body. But with all power comes a price, and with newfound allies who share his predicament, he must battle a secret organization trying to control the ARMS while trying to find the truth behind the weapon in his body for himself...
Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.
Bleach and Project ARMS remind me of each other on an almost superficial level. Each series contains individuals who kinda find out they have special abilities, and because of these special abilities end up having to fight. In the course of each series, the characters grow more and more powerful as they overcome stronger and stronger opponents. Needless to say, there is a lot of fighting.
And you know, sometimes you just need a series with good fight scenes and a decent plot to back it up. Both Bleach and Project ARMS deliver on this formula. If you liked one I am sure you will like the other.
In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.
Both anime proves that age is irelavant factor to anme. Both anime are great pieces of work and look just as good as any up to date anime with you talking about details that you can see while watching any of anime. Thought setting are diffrend modern world and sci-fi world, both anime tells you somewhat similar storys about loss and cruel fate that makes you shoulder a heavy esponsibility.
In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
Let's break down some of the similarities between Claymore and Project Arms, shall we? In each series we encounter individuals that are implanted with items that grant them great power, generally involving a partial transformation, and potentially involving a struggle to remain in control. Ultimately, in their respective dark worlds, they must band together to defeat opponents that could potentially devastate the world.
Claymore and Project ARMS dish out the action, while also serving up some decent story line. If you like one, you should try the other.
An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.
In both D.Gray-man and Project ARMS there is a group of youngsters with special abilities. Both groups become stronger as time passes by and they fight stronger opponents too. Their weapons also evolve. In both animes the antagonists were formerly normal humans, some became monsters by choice while others did not.
Gawl, Koji and Ryo may seem like ordinary exchange students, but in reality they're anything but normal. The trio has travelled into the past to stop dangerous genetic research from being completed – research that has terrible consequences in the future – and Gawl, a boy with the ability to morph into a powerful creature, may be their best hope in succeeding. Now, between trying to hide their secret from the nosy daughter of their landlord and attending classes at Oju Academy, the boys must race against the clock to complete their mission at any cost.
Both of these series have sci-fi elements and involve a group of young male protagonists. I recommend ARMS because it has a similar premise (body part transformation) and the general story arc/pace are comparable.
