Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...

Elfen Lied has an insane amount of blood and gore, just like Tokko, and an equivalent amount of excessive ecchi as well. If you liked Tokko, I think there's no possible way you wouldn't like Elfen Lied.


The absurd pace of Tokko, in the sense of plot development, cannot quite match that of Elfen Lied. However the genre is impeccably the same. Whilst the major distinction between the two is the age of the characters (with the exception of the plot and structural differences at this point), their behavior is almost the same. Elfen Lied lacks the protagonist character that Tokko is personified by. Just how much you like Elfen Lied will be dependent on the proportion of factors that drew you to Tokko: the gore and the plot. Elfen Lied has no shortage of the former but the latter, while existent, is incoherent at sometimes. Either way Elfen Lied is a must watch if you enjoyed Tokko.


There aren't many good gory anime, so I recommend you fellows that like slaughter to see these also. Both Elfen Lied and Tokko have a strange touch to them, which I think all people that see them will notice. If you liked one of them you will most likely enjoy the other, as they have a similar 'drama' and 'gore'.


These anime have a similar feeling to them, both in the depth of emotion, the violent battles and short episode runs, which call for a compact story. The main characters find themselves immersed unwillingly in a world of bloody fighting, because of gifts they were born with (in Elfen Lied) or came to possess at an early age (in Tokko), and the series are about how they cope (or do not) with the added responsibility.


Tokko and Elfen Lied share many aspects, one being the uncanny ability to turn a serious situation into a humorous act, or the uncanny ability to make your jaw hang open as you sit fixated on the intense but brutal action in front of your eyes.

Elfen Lied and Tokko are both thirteen episodes long, which makes twenty six episodes of nonstop action that you're bound to love. If you were a fan of one, you'd do well to at least try the other.


If you gore and supernatural things i would reccomend elfen Lied and Tokko. Gore and (a bit ecchi) is about the thing they have in common. If you're looking for a gore anime with a great story you should watch Elfen lied.


Both series are very bloody and don't hold back with ecchiness. If you liked one, I think you would enjoy the other series too!

In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?

Although set in completely different time periods, both anime have a similar story and feel. Both the fighting style and amounts of gore in each are similar. If you like one, you would like the other.


I think Claymore and Tokko have similar stories placed in different time periods. While Claymore creates an ancient atmosphere Tokko story evolves in modern times.

Both of them include sword fighting, dark misterious creatures and of course blood.


First, if you're into animes that have a female character with that mysterious demeanor and hint of horrible past, then you'd certainly be interested in watching Claymore.

Tokko and Claymore are basically about a special group of people who have a job of destroying a band of 'supernatural' beings.

In addition, the two animes are action-packed and contains gore. Both chooses swords as a way to fight, slashing enemies into little bits of pieces.

I think that both final episodes of these two animes would upset you and make you wish for more, as I did!


Aside from the setting (Tokko being set in modern day and Claymore having a more medieval setting) both Tokko and Claymore have almost the exact same plot themes:  humanity is being attacked by demons and only a select organization has the ability to kill them.   


If you liked Tokko then I have to recommend you to watch Claymore. Consider Claymore as same as Tokko but events happen during middle-ages where girls have very very big swords.

Who wouldn't love girls swinging around swords taller than they are?


 The characters Tokko and Claymore both take into account an awareness of the world around them and try to fit into it even though they have some special powers that do not always let them adapt.  There are tons of fights scenes in each with plenty of gore to keep viewers entertained.

Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.

Both these anime feature characters that join, willingly or not, secret factions that fight monsters. The protagonists find themselves in the middle of a secret war, and only their will and strength can save them. Bloody and violent, with vicious fights full of gore and dismemberment, GANTZ and Tokko are not for the faint of heart.


Gantz and Tokko both feature blood and violence. They both feature strange creatures. And they both make you feel like you wanna see the main character achieve their goal at the end before their end. Check em out. ^_^


both have similar story lines a young male being thrust into a secret team dedicated to kill strange monsters. surrounded by gore and strange monsters while also dealing psychological trauma of the death of those around them. and if you liked either chances are you'll ifnd the other worth watching


If you happened to like Tokko, I think you are most likely going to like also this. GANTZ just throws everything we might consider normal upside down, where dead guys are hired to kill aliens, they don't get instructions or anything.

It has a lot blood, never-seen-before scenes and of course a lot blood and guts.


An unexpected and not-from-this-world events start occuring and no one can explain at first what's going on. That's how both shows summary could start. Each anime is full of blood, gore and flying body parts too. Additionally both titles are spiced with few other similiarities, like sexy outfits for example :)


I think Gantz and Tokko were both made for the sake of being gory so I can't think of a reason why you wouldn't like any of them.

Highschool of the Dead

Highschool of the Dead

When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...

If you Like HOTD you may like TOKKO because blood, gore and violance, a decent story but a bad cliffhanger at the end. But in terms of violence just as good as HOTD.


Tokko and Highschool of the Dead are both horror series with a large about of random ecchi as well - though HSOTD is FAR more extreme in that arena. HSOTD is better in a horror sense but both are fairly brainless series.


Blood splattering galore. Both series involve characters in high school fighting blood sucking zombies or demons!


both are series that feature a lot of fanservice and are exsessivley violent. They feature little charecetr development.  Both are nfun series if your not in the mood to really think.


Tokko and High School of the Dead are filled with violence, gore, and blood.  The horror experienced in each of these series involves a new element while drawing in some fabulous fanservice.


In both anime there is a group of people who go around killing undead/paranormal phenomena. Highschool of the Dead focuses more on a survival story with a touch of harem. Tokko is a goverment agency comprised of the chosen few that combats the paranormal while having a love intrest with the main protagonist.

Both Blood+ and Tokko feature main characters that are taken away from their normal lives and plunged into violent combat. Although with heavy gore and lengthy fights, the series actually focus on their feelings as they come to accept their gifts and the responsibility of power.


Both these anime's have their fair share of violence. They both have supernatural aspects to their plots. The character's are pretty similar and the plots are fairly close


Both of these series focus on their main character's being forced into a world they don't want to be in and how their emotions and they themselves change as they begin to accept their destiny and new power. They both also involve demons, or demon like beings and their very gory deaths.


Both series the main character has to fight Monsters that want to destroy the human race. they make new friends that fight along them to destroy these monsters. So, if you like Tokko you'd also would like Blood+.


Blood+ and Tokko have main characters that are thrust out of their daily lives into a whole new type of world.  Both have to live up to their own potential and change their own perspective of how to overcome the challenges that face them and the enemies they encounter.
