The City Hunter Ryo Saeba has been without customers for four months, so his partner Kaori is understandably overjoyed when a customer finally contacts them. As the customer happens to be the striking Mega City TV newscaster Sayaka, Ryo has trouble containing his excitement too. But while it seems not even Kaori's wrath can dissuade Ryo from his lecherous antics, things take a more serious turn when they have to escape a seemingly endless stream of hired killers who come after them. And when Sayaka's employers set Ryo up as a kidnapper and killer, Ryo has no choice but to get to the bottom of this weird case!
Both this movie and Trigun have a number of similarities. The most obvious and most important similarity occurs between Ryo and Vash. Particularly, City Hunter: Death of the Vicious Criminal Ryo Saeba reminds me of the bodyguard episode near the start of the Trigun series. Ryo and Vash seem to be women chasers and somewhat childlike, but when the chips are down they are at the top of their game.
Basically if you liked this movie, you should give Trigun a shot. Conversely, if you liked Trigun (and specifically the bodyguard episode) you should definately check out the City Hunter: Death of the Vicious Criminal Ryo Saeba
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Ever imagined what Trigun would look like if it was from Knives' point of view? Code Geass is something like that, where the bad "brother" (not really a biological brother, but the word suits the situation very well) is the main character (don't worry, Lelouch doesn't want to kill all humans, or maybe I am wrong...). Don't be scared by the fact that Code Geass is a mecha series, since mecha don't play that important of a role in the anime. Trigun was very dramatic and so was Code Geass, but the drama in the second one reminded me more of Shakespeare or even a tragedy from ancient Greece.
While on the hunt for an underage hacker, Faye is the sole witness to identifying a man who causes a tanker explosion that leaves people up to three miles away in comas. The bounty that ensues is the largest the galaxy has EVER seen, 300,000,000 wulongs. It's up to Spike and the gang to solve the mystery of this strange disease, and to stop the assailant at large, for failure would result in all life on Mars being eliminated on Halloween night.
Both anime contain addicting plot, good characters, extreme action and likable music. The depth of the characters as well as the plot is the main factor for this shows to be so popular. If you are an anime fan I’m sure that you heard about this anime at least one. I’m completely sure that if you liked one you will like 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?
