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.

Fast action, super powers, and a blatant disregard for historical realism – Spriggan and ROD are both slick, fun and slightly silly.

If you watched Read or Die for its fast-moving, flashy action sequences, you'll enjoy Spriggan's battles, inspired in part by the bullet ballets of Hong Kong cinema. However, I have a brief warning: Spriggan is ultraviolent.

Arion

Arion
  • Movie (1 ep x 120 min)
  • 1986

In the ancient time of the gods, a son of the titans was born: Arion, borne of Demeter and Poseidon, the lord of the sea. After being kidnapped to the realm of the Underworld by Hades, Arion is sent on a mission to destroy Zeus, the lord of the heavens, in retribution for causing his mother's blindness. In his quest, he will gain new friends and face the powers of the gods themselves as he struggles to strike down Zeus and save the one he loves from the evil Apollo.

Even though these movies are set in very different era's, they have a few things in common that appeal to some viewers. They are both focused on historical and mythological events, and thus i recommend that if you saw one of them, you should watch the other too.

Dallos

Dallos

Decades ago, the moon was colonized and turned into a mining colony whose profits benefited Earth and its people. A generation has passed and the workers are now treated as slaves -- forced to work in the mines under the rule of earth-born men, with many of the young people having never been to the land of their heritage. The time has come, however, for a rebellion to take place: to command Earth to hear their pleas; and afterwards, the moon and Dallos, the moon's god-like structure who silently sleeps and protects its inhabitants, will never be the same...

Spriggan and Dallos are seemingly different in most ways, but for some reason remind me of each other, so you might like it as well. Try it out for size.

D.Gray-man

D.Gray-man

An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.

This may seem like a strange recommendation, but the two really share a lot of similar themes.  Both involve superhumans, and the source of their powers.  Both are about ancient biblical artifacts, and the concept of Noah's Ark.  If you like action-packed struggles between "God" and humanity, both should satisfy.

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell
  • Movie (1 ep x 83 min)
  • 1995

A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs. Is he an evil genius, or could he signal the beginning of a new age in the relationship between man and machine?

Like Spriggan, Ghost in the Shell paints a dark, technologically-advanced future. Ghost in the Shell's plot may be more complicated and philosophical, but that doesn't subtract from the action, advanced weaponry, and blood found in both.
