Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto

Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto

It is the era of Bakumatsu – the last years of the shogunate. In the general turmoil caused by warring groups with different political interests, a curious theatrical group known as the Yuyama Troupe is set out for revenge. They come across a mysterious young swordsman, Akizuki Youjirou, who seems to be burdened with a dark past. Thrown around by currents of history, powerful people from different factions and personal relations, Akizuki tries to fulfill his mission to destroy an ancient, cursed relic, the Lord’s Head, which has caused chaos and bloodshed for thousands of years.

Samurai 7 and Bakumatsu both combine samurai action with completely unrelated things. Be it mecha or magic, the only reason they can mixed in these anime is because the story supports it. Both of these anime have plenty of emotions in them and truly offer a familiar feeling.

CommanderKarasu

A team of unique fighters (7 in Samurai 7, 10 in Brave10) assemble to take down an enemy. A young woman is the one to bring these fighters together, and they are tasked with guaranteeing her protection as well. Samurai 7 is far more serious than Brave10, but both include war, action, and adventure. If you liked one, give the other a try.

Samurai 7 reminded me a lot of Escaflowne. Plot-wise there aren't any similarities, yet both have a somewhat similar flow. And even though they involved different events, the feelings that surfaced for me felt very familiar in both anime.

Gintama

Gintama

In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!

Samurai 7 and Gintama may not seem like similar anime, but they are, in fact. Both have samurai that want to fight for the greater good; although, in Gintama, a certain samurai acts a bit silly... In both, there was a war that occured in the past, and because of this, advanced technology has come to both animes.

In the early 20th century, Kazuya transfers to a prestigious academy as part of an exchange program between Japan and Saubure, a small European country. But while Kazuya would love to make friends and have a typical school life, the boy is shunned by his ghost story-loving peers who believe that he's a "Black Reaper" to be feared. Things change one day when Kazuya wanders to the top of the library and discovers a lush botanical garden, and a beautiful, small, blonde-haired girl named Victorique who rarely leaves the building and is fascinated by unsolved mysteries. Together, the two develop a budding friendship and take on many chilling and dangerous cases that even the famous local detective Grevil can't solve.

Both series have a subtle undertone of children paying for the sins of the fathers, as it were. Old struggles and factions arise again, and have to be finally fixed for good.
