Synopsis:

Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?

Read or Die

Read or Die

Secret agent for the British Libraries, Yomiko Readman, has an infatuation with books. When she purchases one of the books that contain the notes for a plan to purge the world of humanity, Yomiko (along with the help of Ms. Deep and Drake) uses her powers of paper manipulation to stop a group of resurrected men from fulfilling the plan.

The first thing someone would notice upon seeing both of these animes, is that both of them contain humans. Upon further investigation, limbs can be observed on said humans. If this has not yet incited you to check either one of these animes out, perhaps this next blurb will:

Both of these animes are in extreme contrast to one another when it comes to atmosphere and plot; however, both of these series have strange abilities and powers that are in many cases just downright bizarre and strange. If you enjoyed the character abilities in one you would surely get a kick out of the character abilities in the other.

Red Garden

Red Garden

Four students of the same age have nothing in common except that they attend the same elite New York City school. Kate, Rose, Clare and Rachel all belong to different cliques and hardly notice each other's existence. Then one day they gain something in common, something very important, something mysterious. They find themselves drawn together by the death of a fellow student and the secret of their own missing memories. Suddenly they are thrown into a world of hidden warfare on the city streets and are caught up in secrets which would not be believed by others. These four all have their own problems to struggle with, things that seem more important than such strange conflicts. Can they escape from this fate? The only thing they know is that despite coming from four different worlds they now have to rely on each other or die without a hope.

I seem to be one of a dying breed that loves GONZO productions. Both Red Garden and Speed Grapher remind my why I love them so much.

The story is very deep and meaningful, with action interspersed between the two. The fight scenes are good to watch, but its the relationships and struggles the characters go through that make these some of my favourite shows.

A dark, edgy, twisted plot characterizes the two series and sets them apart from the standard fluffy anime fare. Though set in very different eras, both address the darker side of human nature and blur the victim-villain distinction, a fact that troubles each protagonist to no end as they gaze deeper into the abyss and struggle to maintain their perspective.

Shikabane Hime: Aka

Shikabane Hime: Aka

Ouri is an orphan who was raised by Keisei, a man he considers to be his older brother. One night, Ouri finds a strange wounded girl in the temple of the orphanage. Cold and covered in scars, Ouri initially thinks that she is dead – that is, until a mysterious talking cat tells him that she is a Shikabane – a corpse. After secretly watching Keisei heal the girl without explanation, Ouri decides it's time to leave the nest. However, he has picked a poor time, and he soon realizes that he's tangled in a strange, supernatural web. Why does Ouri continually meet this girl as she hunts monsters? What does Keisei have to do with it all and what exactly is her mission?

Both shows seem to share, at least intiially, something of a monster of the week approach, as well as main characters whose powers are driven by some form of curse.

Texhnolyze

Texhnolyze

In an experimental city of despair and carnage, ORGAN will do anything necessary to gain power and wealth. Unfortunately for one underground boxer who was mutilated, a rogue doctor has given him what ORGAN specializes in and he despises: Texhnolyze body parts. Will these cybernetic appendages help exact his revenge upon the one who made him this way?

If you're looking for something dystopian that deals with human de-evolution then you might like this show. Texhnolyze and Speed Grapher both deal with a world crippled by the darker side of human nature. Be prepared for a lot of violence and despair.  As with Speed Grapher, the lengths to which people will abuse each other is fully explored in this series.  This one is quite a bit darker, both visually and emotionally.
