Berserk

Berserk

Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?

Both are stories of strong men, which hold destiny of many in their hands. Both struggle with their fate, even if their perspective isn't the same, as Alexander knows to be a ruler while Gutts (the Berserk protagonist) doesn't realize it.

Both great series with lots of action.  There are the huge battles where its army vs army, and the smaller battles where the heros duke it out. The constant action leaves no time to get bored of the story lines.  In both however, the stories are amazingly complex filled with friendship ambition and destiny.  The plot of Alexander is more mystical and based on politics, philosophy, and strategy, whereas berserk (from Guts' perspective) is more about the path of a warrior and the human condition (the nature of evil), both contain elements of each however. I loved both of these series and would highly reccomend them to anyone who needs more badass in their life.

Revolutionary Girl Utena

When Utena Tenjou was very little her parents died, and a prince comforted her in her time of loss, giving her a ring with a rose seal. He so impressed her that she decided to become a prince herself one day. Now, Utena is a teenager at Ohtori Academy who's athletic and notorious for dressing in a boy's uniform. When a member of the Student Council humiliates a friend of hers Utena challenges him to a duel, and he accepts only when he sees she possesses a rose seal ring. She soon discovers that this is no normal duel - it's a bizarre and ritualistic battle that the Student Council regularly conducts. In fact when she wins, Utena finds to her considerable chagrin that she gets to have Anthy Himemiya, a rather docile student, as her 'Rose Bride'. If she wants to keep Anthy she'll have to win more duels against members of the Student Council and others. What is the ultimate purpose of these duels and Anthy's role as the Rose Bride?

Both Reign and Utena have more than their fair share of sword fights, beautiful people, obtuse conversations, great visuals, and under-appreciated animation styles. If you like action with a bit more meaning and great music, you'll enjoy both.

Dante's Inferno

Dante's Inferno

Weary from the Crusades, Dante Alighieri returns home to find his farm raided and his family slaughtered. If this atrocity weren’t enough, he then watches in horror as Lucifer himself rises to claim the soul of his beloved Beatrice for his own. On the verge of despair. Dante takes his sword to the gates of Hell itself in a mad quest to reclaim her against all odds. But even with the help of his guide, the dead poet Virgil, the knight must still contend with an army of demons both personal and literal if he is to rescue his fiancée.

The animation is very similar in both anime, as well as the fight scences. There are also some interesting psychological elements going on in both.

If you enjoyed either Bayonetta: Bloody Fate or Reign: The Conqueror, you should check out the other. These have more in common than a colon separating parts of their name.

Both have similar character designs, so watching either will give the feel of watching the other. Both anime feature a similar core plot - the actions of the main character, who is fated/destined to destroy the world.

 Both feature metaphysical philosophical ideas, although Reign does go a bit overboard with them while Bayonetta mixes in religious symbolism.

If you liked either one of these, you may well enjoy the other.
