In a future world dominated by corporations, Iria is one of the best in the bounty-hunting business.

Iria must uncover the secret behind Zeiram and stop it at all costs in this action-packed OVA series.
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?
If you want an hour and a half of amazing fights, great directing and dark, trippy imagery, you can't go wrong with either anime, and if you like one, you'll definitely like the other. KARAS is a lot newer and therefor prrettier, but both have steller animation.
As a young girl, Sawa is orphaned when both her parents are brutally murdered and is taken in by a police detective named Akai, who trains her to be a professional killer. He turns Sawa and Oburi, a young boy, into his puppets and makes them kill to fulfill his own sense of justice against child molesters and other harassing members of society.
Spriggan and Kite are both very good action movies. Kite might have a more violent nature, but Spriggan offers enough action to make up for it. Hell, it even has an apocalyptic theme which should make these two anime appeal to the same audience even more! The only real turn-off one might have is the hentai scenes in Kite which are absent in Spriggan.
As a child, Inaho always loved listening to stories of her grandmother's immortality -- gained from a strange device known as the O-part. As a young adult, Inaho is finally ready to fulfill her dream: to find the O-part and gain immortality, just like her grandmother! But where can the O-part be found? Fortunately for Inaho, she has made a blood-pact with Mosquiton, a 1/4th vampire with a knack for servitude, and a nose for trouble. Joined by Mosquiton's ex-wife and two cohorts, the search for the O-part begins! That is, if the world isn't destroyed first...
Both are about uncovering secret, ancient technology locked away in ancient ruins, ridicoulous premises, and superhuman powers. Mosquiton is goofier and more comedic, but both are pretty ridiculous.
The year is UC 0123, and humanity is spread out across several colonies and the earth. An age of peace is shattered as the Crossbone Vanguard stage an assault on the station Frontier IV - their goal is to create a new age of aristocracy called Cosmo Babylonia; their method is destroying the federation and part of the populace. Seabrook Arno, a resident of Frontier IV, finds himself forced into the resistance in order to protect his friends. Piloting the new Gundam F91 model, Seabrook must now fight against the Crossbone Vanguard, as well as his childhood friend Cecily Fairchild.
Both of these are sci-fi action films where a young teenaged boy is soon caught up in lots of pretty and well animated action sequences interspersed in a narrative that is basically incoherent and frequently quite stupid. Spriggan is by far the better animated of the two (though Gundam F91 is no slouch I assure you) though Spriggan is also the more idiotic, as F91's story sort of makes sense no matter how fitfully delivered. If you could overlook the flaws of one to enjoy a visually interesting sci-fi action entertainment time you can surely appreciate the other; while F91 is part of a larger Gundam saga it also stands completely independent of other works (and the many loose ends it has are never wrapped up in other Gundam anime for the curious).
