Akira

Akira
  • Movie (1 ep x 125 min)
  • 1988

Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.

Akira is a slightly similar movie to Spriggan. Kaneda slightly resembles Yu; both feature a kid gone crazy. Spriggan and Akira have similar concepts and tone.

TheBurningCrow

Spriggan and Akira were written by the same author and are great cyberpunk thrillers. Akira also has a very intellectual plot and fantastic graphics and action.

kamirura
What can you expect when the same author makes another movie? Akira got alot of action and pretty much the same theme with the world going under. Be sure to check it out if you liked Spriggan.
Bateau
If you love the cyberpunk genre, Then by all means check out Sprigan, its undoubtly worth a watch. GO CYBERPUNKS!!! w00t!
freakzilla
An apocalypse and children with special powers, with that Akira and Spriggan definitely feel the same. Nothing else to say, just get it!
BladelessSword

Akira and Spriggan are very similar. Spriggan has many aspects that Akira has like little children with powers and lots of violence and action.Though Spriggan lacks the massive and impressive story line Akira has, Spriggan makes it up with breath taking fight scenes. They are well suitted together.

games4yosoul

If You like one you will undoubtedly like the other. They have the same mood and feel and even share trademark grey skined children with psychic powers.

VivisQueen

Akira is basically a sophisticated version of Spriggan's concept and much, much better looking despite being more than a decade older. Kids with psychic powers, crazy military conspiracy, weird mumbo jumbo, and a crap-ton of glorious action.

neutrino

Spriggan really seems like a tribute to Akira.  Both involve human experimentation gone horribly wrong, and questions whether humanity should take matters of God into its own hands.  Both boast incredible art, and while Spriggan I thought was kinda stupid, both have intriguing premises.

sothis

Spriggan and Akira are so similar it's impossible to not recommend them. Kid with psychic powers, military involvement and lots of gritty artwork? These anime are two peas in a pod.

Nerv

They both have dark gritty animations with bits of gore thrown in, wonderful sound tracks and a similar protagonist with a never say die attitude who doesn't understand what limits are. Akira has a much better story based off human potential(psychic) and that is what drives it far above Spriggan, Spriggan is based off a mythological power called Noah that is essentially earths reset button and the story in general is weak, lacking depth but the art style and sound track are well worth a watch.

Sianeka

Both Spriggan and Akira deal with saving the world from threats induced by a covert military agency.  Both Kaneda, Akira's hero and Yuu Ominae, Spriggan's hero live in a visually dark world and must overcome the dark intentions of military-enhanced beings to prevent an apocalypse. If you enjoy action, fights and explosions, both anime deliver handsomely.

Both of these have stunning visuals and fast-paced action. While the stories are different, it just seems natural that ifyou've watched one, you should watch the other.

youkais

The main character in both are over natural and have to fight in order to protect ideals with guns and blood.

A cientific plot (about human development) is behind in both too.

Niw

These two action movies are rather similar by their plot: both have their main characters to take up arms to not just defend themselves, but also their ideals and, ultimately, whole humankind. They offer a satisfactory level of depth in both the characters as well as the surrounding world. If you’re an action movie fan and liked one, I don’t see why you wouldn’t enjoy the other as well.

Jin-Roh has a similar feel on the surface to Spriggan. Both are slower paced but still good. Jin-Roh is not much like Spriggan once you get into it, but i think many Spriggan fans would enjoy Jin-Roh.

TheBurningCrow

Jin-Roh has a very strong overpowering millitary presence like Spriggan, with the 'single' all powerful soldier as well.

freakzilla
Though Jin-Roh is a lot deeper in the plot and is more slow-paced, the reason i recommend these is that the gunplay reminds me of the other movie, it's really ver simular at the start, than each evolves to it's own different ending.

Archeology is a dangerous buisness, especially when god gets involved. Make sure you've got some pretty special abilities, and a bunch of equally talented compainions before digging around for relics which the fate of the world rests upon. Also be prepared for equally outlandish oposition, generally bent on world domination. If you don't learn these lessons from Spriggan and Crystal Triangle, stay at home. Where it's safe.
neutrino

Both are about uncovering artifacts that lead to ominous consequences for the fate of humankind.  If only archeology was this exciting in real life!  Crystal Triangle, focuses more on the discoveries themselves, while Spriggan focuses on what humanity could do with those powers.

Ninja Scroll

  • 1993

If you enjoy action with just the slightest hint of a clever plot, Spriggan or Ninja Scroll should satisfy you. Both are very violent, with some impressive visual moments, but have rather different settings.
freakzilla
This is another violent action-packed movie. Both Spriggan and Ninja Scroll add in a bit of a plot, but action takes up plenty of the screentime. Should appeal the same audience.
