Once the undefeated champion of the street fighting game Bl@ster, Akira now fights for an entirely different cause. Having been framed for murder and given the choice of life in prison or exoneration for a price, he chose to take the latter, heading for the lawless district of Toshima. There, Akira is to fight in Igura, a game where the winner of each match receives special tags, and the loser loses his life. Alongside his longtime friend Keisuke and experienced Igura competitor Rin, Akira must now battle it out in Igura, try to avoid the sadistic enforcers that roam the streets, and complete his mission: to defeat Il Re and take down the drug company Vischio.
Abandoned outside an orphanage when he was just a baby, Yuki is a boy with no idea where he came from or who he really is. Now in high school, the teen is plagued by odd dreams, death threats and an ability to see the negativity that dwells within people's hearts. One night after being lured into a trap, a mysterious and handsome man named Zess saves Yuki from being killed before disappearing into the night. Then, with the sudden arrival of his long-lost brother, the orphan finds himself pulled into a new world where he can not only learn about his powers and how to control them, but also becomes aware of the evils that lurk in the darkness. Can Yuki finally find the place he truly belongs, and just why is Zess so protective over the young boy?
Both are relatively dark shounen-ai animes, with Togainu no Chi being a hell lot bloodier. Not to mention, Shiki resembles Zess.
togainu no chi is so very exciting and suspensful. these dioleques are similar. romance, action, and kicking ass. its all about protecting your loved ones in Uragiri and in Togainu. discovering your strength is a plus with me.
Two shounen-ai anime which have a darker atmosphere, Togainu no Chi and UraBoku are good recommendations for each other. If you like squeeing at brooding semes, innocent ukes, and attractive-yet-crazy villains, then these two shows will be right up your alley.
22-year-old Ryouta is an unemployed good-for-nothing who spends his days living at home and playing Btooom, a wildly popular online game that's sold over three million copies worldwide. Alongside other teammates, Ryouta battles it out with others using powerful bombs and sonar that can reveal hidden enemies, and his dedication has earned him the title of Japan's top player. But soon, Ryouta's pastime becomes a terrifying reality, as he and many others are dropped onto a tropical island and forced to play Btooom – but this time for real. Now, he and the rest must fight to the death by whatever means necessary, as the only way to win this deadly game is by killing seven of the other players.
In both Togainu no Chi and Btooom! players are thrown into a brutal, bloody, life-or-death game where the object of the game is to collect tags or chips from other players. Through the trials of the game, the characters reflect on and delve into their own troubled pasts.
While neither "Togainu no Chi" nor "BTOOOM!" is a great anime by any stretch of the imagination (the latter may improve, though), the similarities between the two make them a good recommendation. The main character in each, a young adult man, is thrown into a violent world where murder is considered normal and a pacifistic view is considered ridiculous. The characters of both anime prefer peace to violence (however, I feel that "BTOOOM!" takes this "make-love-not-war" approach a little too far), but, unfortunately for them, not everyone in their world agrees.
I cannot easily judge the ongoing anime "BTOOOM!" too fairly, but it seems to be the lesser of the two. The cast in both anime consists of annoying, whiny characters (mostly in "BTOOOM!", though). The animation is simply average, and the sound is okay.
The reason I am unable to recommend "Togainu no Chi" to "BTOOOM!" fans is rather simplistic: "Togainu no Chi" has a very shounen-ai feel, with a male-dominated cast, a beyond-friendship relationship between two characters, a shota and an obviously-gay sadist. If someone dislikes shounen-ai, he/she probably would not be able to enjoy "Togainu no Chi." It is not a yaoi by any means, but it is quite close.
In the underbelly of the corporate world, a secret series of battles takes place called the Bus Game, whose participants are solicited randomly via letters in the mail. During the games, teams of three attempt to take into their possession a disk filled with corporate secrets; the winners are given increasingly high cash rewards, while the losers get nothing - or worse, they lose their lives. Toki, Kazuo and Nobu make up the "no name" team, and their goal is to win one billion yen each. Each has a reason to need the money and a secret, disturbing past; but with high stakes and mysterious employers, they can only hope to leave the game alive.
Togainu no Chi is very similar to Bus Gamer. They both have extremely violent fighting that takes place through the entirity of the show. Togainu no Chi is centered around a place called "Fight City". This is about a Game or tournament where you fight to survive. The same basic theme is expressed in both of these two anime's. However, Togainu no Chi is more violent and gory than Bus Gamer.
Bus Gamer and Togainu no Chi are definitely very similar - follows a group of pretty boys as they participate in a violent 'game', with plenty of violence to boot. Bus Gamer is definitely the lesser of the two, but fans of one may enjoy the other.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
Middle school student Ganta Igarashi witnessed the slaughter of his entire class by the mysterious 'Red Man', and as the only survivor, he was labeled a mass murderer and sentenced to death. Now an inmate at the privately-owned prison and ‘amusement park' known as Deadman Wonderland, Ganta must try to survive in a place where inmates are the main attraction in brutal gladiator-style games. At the same time, he must attempt to uncover the truth behind the ‘Red Man', his mysterious childhood friend Shiro, and why he was the only survivor that bloody day.
In Togainu no Chi, Akira is accused of commeting a murder.In Deadman Wonderland, the "Woodpecker" is accused of murder all of his classmates.Blood, some unusual fights, and survival moments are all what you can see iin both animes
Both are very good animes in similar genres. They aren't tremendously alike as far as plot or characters go, but they're both really good.
