Synopsis:

In the time of the Shogunate, fierce warriors roam the countryside, raping and murdering innocent people. The only hope for peace lies with one man and a group of samurai who want nothing more than to bring down the bad guys, dead or alive! From saving prostitutes’ lives to gunning down brutal murderers, there’s nothing that Ichimatsu -- the Samurai Gun -- can’t do. With the help of body armor, high powered guns and close friends to watch his back, Ichimatsu must hunt down the Shogun’s ruthless killers by the way of the samurai… the Samurai Gun!

Hellsing

Hellsing

In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...

If you like the style-factor of Samurai Gun, you'll enjoy the far superior Hellsing. Different plot, but far better action, very strong on style, way less ridiculous ecchi and an overall better anime.

If you liked Samurai Gun like I did you will like Hellsing because both anime have a lot of shooting, violence and blood to back it up; this is unlike most anime in America where they edit the blood out.

Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop

Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?

Samurai Gun basically tries to be Bebop with swords (and more blood, and way more breasts). If you like the style of Samurai Gun, check out the very style-heavy Bebop.

Karas

Karas

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?

Karas is a MUCH better badass-who-fights-bad-guys, with better animation, no disgusting nipple shots, and overall just kicks ass. I have no idea why you liked Samurai Gun, but definitely check out the far superior Karas!

Samurai Champloo

Samurai Champloo

Samurai Champloo is all about style, from the dj-style scratching scene changes to the hip-hop-inspired soundtrack to the eclectic character design. Mugen's fighting style is a funky meld of capoeira and limb-cutting, and Jin is the dramatic foil; he is all steel and old-school samurai style. What binds them together is the desire to test each other's abilities, and a promise to a girl named Fuu: to find the samurai that smells of sunflowers, who plays a pivotal role in her past. Together they travel through edo-era Japan, finding battle and comedy wherever they stop.

Samurai Champloo is the same sort of idea as Samurai Gun (take samurai, throw a lot of style into the mix)... but is a lot lighter toned and a lot better in general. If you liked Samurai Gun for whatever reason, check out Samurai Champloo.
