Synopsis:

In ancient times, Susano-oh conquered Orochi with the Kusanagi sword and was named the God of Darkness. In the present, signs of Susano-oh's manifestation on Earth are beginning to take place, including the shattering of a stone Flayed Colt. Caught in the middle is Takeshi, a young man who is forced to receive stigmata-like marks on his body from the ancient gods; an impending sign that he will soon be reincarnated as Brahman's alter ego, Atman. Meanwhile, the Kikuchi clan is after Takeshi and has a strange interest in the events taking place. The fate of all mankind is at stake; will demons or humans be the victor?

3x3 Eyes and Dark Myth are quite similar in terms of the horrorific, gore-filled story, the animation style, and the tone. 3x3 is infinitely better, but if you liked one you'd probably enjoy the other too.

Harmagedon

Dark Myth and Harmagedon are both horrible 80s titles with a gritty feel and a confusing, bizarre story. They come from the same era as well; it's likely if you liked one you'd like the other.

Both of these series delve deeply into ancient Japanese mythology, and are hard to comprehend.  Mouryou is more interesting and boasts better visuals, but I'm sure if you're interested in one, you'll be interested in the other.

For it seems that Kyoji is none other than the reincarnated spirit of Bilka, Yawaru's sworn enemy, and it's up to him and his allies to save the world.

Various reincarnations with dark powers? Check! Boring and uninteresting storyline? Check!

I'm not sure why these two feel so similar, but I knew almost immediately that fans of one would like the other. Call it a gut feeling, but try it on for size.
