“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
Brandon Heat and Harry MacDowel were best friends who lived by the law of the street, until one day they picked a fight with the wrong people and their life of freedom was suddenly taken away. With no one to turn to and nowhere to run, the choice to join Millenion, the city's most powerful syndicate, seemed like an offer they couldn't refuse. Now, amidst heartache, tragedy, and utmost betrayal, Brandon must take up the gun and help Harry climb the ranks of Millenion to succeed, in order to protect the people he loves, even if it means killing countless others in the process.
Both Trigun and Gungrave are yy the same creator, and there are elements of the self-sacrificing personality in both Vash and Brandon Heat. If you liked one, try out the other.
Even though Gungrave is a dark anime whereas Trigun is more humorous and lighthearted, if you liked one you will probably like the other. Both anime are about gunslingers with great skills and contain some great shoot out sequences. In my opinion Gungrave is the slightly better of the two due to its deep storyline (even though I greatly disliked the ending); but nevertheless if you watched and enjoyed either of these anime the other is a must.
Vash from Trigun is a lot like Brandon from Gungrave. Both are badass gunslingers who also have a soft side. Both have the same writing style too because Yoshiro Nightow wrote them both.
They both have "gun" in the name. That's good enough for me.
In all honesty, if you liked Vash in TriGun, you will probably like Brandon in Gungrave, and vice versa. Both characters are badasses with a soft side, though Brandom more badass and Vash more soft side. Plus, both involve two people who were very close, but are torn apart by betrayal, and now vie to kill eachother.
Anyway, you'll enjoy one if you liked the other.
Well in terms of plot those 2 series haven't got propably nothing in common maybe apart from badass main character. These anime are a great watch for action, drama oriented fans. Trigun has some comedic relief but it can be deadly seriuios as the series progress.
Both series are in a time period slightly different than our current and have some form of futeristic feeling whilst still not being a full blown sci-fi. Also both series have an awesome story involving both the past as the present of the main character. Also the amount of action in both series will satisfy your desire.
Both of these anime where to originally written by the same Manga artist and the music composed by the same composer. So the style over all gives these two anime the same feel. The gunslinger action in both of these are really well done and the stories well thaught out.
If you watched Trigun, enjoyed it, but thought that there was too much silly jokes and goodie-goodie stuff, then Gungrave is a perfect anime for you. The characters were designed by the same person (Yasuhiro Nightow) and there's plenty of shooting going on, but the overal mood is uncomparably more sinister.
In Gungrave, they actually always shoot to kill.
Both series are very good. While its hard to recommend either series due to the vast difference in the setting/plot/characters I always do, simply because both anime have very high production values.
The story telling is brilliant in both with perfect pacing (although Gungrave's is better). The anime have a great respect for bonds and how characters change. If you like gungrave and dont mind some comedy Trigun is perfect. If you like Trigun and dont mind darker anime's then Gungrave is perfect too.
Lastly the music in both is spot on ;).
Trigun and Gungrave are essentially the same show with emphasis on different points. Trigun on one hand is a forever memorable comedy with some great action scenes and a protagonist unwilling to compromise his morals. On the other hand Gungrave is a darker, more serious show also filled with great action, but also with characters with great character development and some great shock values. The protagonist's unwillingness to give up on his morals also comes in to play in Gungrave. Both shows you will remember for a long time and anyone that has seen one of these and enjoyed it should be sure to check the other out. You will certainly return to rewatch these many a time.
well besids both having gun in he title, being in produced by madhouse, having the same director and being in my top 5 anime of all time bouth series have simmiler animeation although admittiley gun grave is of better quality. Both deal with thems of betrayl and revenge and bothe have simmiler settings. vash is a lot like brandon because they have simmiler goles and both dont corupt themselves. and i dont want to give anything away but harry is a lot like knives. also bouth start out taking place in a slightley realistic world and then slowley transishin into sci fy. LOng story short if you liked one you will like the outher.
In the future, a man roams through the desolate wastelands. His enemies whisper his name with fear and awe: the "Demon of the Sands". Using his skills and ingenuity, as well as having a mind for tricks, he has a perfect record as a bounty hunter. Yet, he is still a man, and may have finally met his match in the beautiful and very well endowed Asagiri Junko. Now, he must learn to deal with the the harsh climate, hapless outlaws, and his complete weakness for the opposite sex!
Both Trigun and Desert Punk are action-packed and have loads of comic relief. If you liked the desert/post-apocalyptic setting with a hint of lost technology thrown in in one, you'll be set with the other.
Do you like some comedy with your action, an unlikely funny hero, some awesome gun fighting, and a desert setting with hardly any technology? Well both Trigun and Desert Punk are two series who share these same qualities. If you enjoyed one then check out the other.
Vash the Stampede is a great character; he is valiant, chivalrous, deceptively brave, naive, honest, kind and a very skilled shot that's only aimed for good. Trigun's story is of love and peace and ultimately how two very similar people can stray in very opposite directions.
Kanta Mizuno is a major letch. He's brave, or maybe just stupid. He's deceitful and kind of nasty. He's an amazing marksman and will lend his skill so long as there's something in it for him. Desert Punk's story is of lust and war and ultimately how one guy can go in any direction at any time.
The stories and characters are so opposite that they go full circle and become similar. So are the characters and you come to love them for all of the reasons that they are dissimilar. Both are good old sci-fi-futuristic-old-west-gunslingin'-action anime.
Like Vash the Stampede, Sunabouzu The Ghost of the Desert is an unexpected but renowned person in the desert. That is where the similarity ends between the two however, as Sunabouzu is a deviant, a lecher, and doesn't believe in honorable ideals at all. While normally these would be character flaws, they allow him to survive in the desert that the world has become.
Both of these series are packed full of action and comedy, and more importantly are a story you can care about. While both the hero of Trigun and anti-hero of Desert Punk are about as different as two people can get, the way the stories are told are very similar, and it's not just because of the desert setting. I heartily suggest anyone who enjoyed Trigun to check out Desert Punk, if ecchi is something you dislike though, you may want to skip it. Sunabouzu is after all a lecher, and he's not afraid to grab breasts and daydream about women. But it's in good taste as it makes for quite a bit of the comic relief in many episodes.
Both series take place in baron, post-apocalyptic wasteland environments. Both series have a main protagonist who acts goofy at time, though it's more evident in Sunabozu which can be very slapstick at times.
In both Anime' the main protagonist is a form of bounty hunter with an avid interest in large breasts.
Looks like DP was a inspired by Trigun. Someone thought that people would watch a crazy lone gunman take on the desert again? Well they thought right...After quite a while a new refreshing anime like Trigun came. both main characters have some similaritties but are not the same. DP is even more down to earth than Trigun, and all characters are grey. No good vs. bad, black vs. white, just people here. Good, bad, black & white. Both have the same amount of funny in a bit sick way, and just the right amount. I cant remeber when i laughed so much in a serie like in DP. Probably Seinfeld. You just have to watch them both.
While there are some very stark contrasts between the main characters of these two series, they are both witty, strong, and -above all- excellent gunmen. Where Vash the Stampede is kind-hearted and chivalrous, Kanta Mizuno is hardened and lecherous. But strangely, that doesn't make him any less loveable. Similar to Trigun, Desert Punk's underlying story grows more fascinating as the series progresses. The futuristic-wild-west setting of Desert Punk will be the first thing a Trigun fan will connect with. The next hook will be the combination of the intense action and calculating skill involved in battles. Add to that some zany comedy (albeit more ecchi in places) and you've got yourself a winner.
Endless deserts, and explosive gun fights. These series feel like siblings, Trigun being the older, quirky but serious when the time comes, and Desert Punk, the loud, violent little brother who goofs off constantly.
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
At first glance, Trigun and Fullmetal Alchemist don't seem to have a lot in common. Although, if you take a closer look, you'll see that both stories are about a strong sense of brotherhood. They also have a similar theme: a journey. Both series share a combination of drama and comedy and have some small similarities (most likely coincidental) in character design.
Basically, both are shounen anime with suffering main characters. Action and drama make up the main parts of the dish. They start off with some comedy elements but these all eventually succumb to the seriousness and drama. Vash has his ideals and Elric his hopes of saving Alphonse and they're continually put through hardships because of it. Full Metal Alchemist is the more dreary of the two and has more drama, while Trigun packs a bit more comedy and action. Production values are above average.
Both Trigun and Fullmetal Alchemist are fantasy adventures with stunning animation, great music, and a good plot. Both focus on a pair of siblings in some way, and their "search" for the other sibling in order to make something right. They both have a setting similar to our own world's past, but with some definite differences in the way of technology and knowledge - Fullmetal Alchemist having the skill of alchemy, and Trigun having some science-fiction elements to it. The protagonists both have a very powerful weapon on them, used when necessary, and they both have an aversion to killing. The plots have their comedic moments, but are also very serious and drama-filled at times. If you liked one, you should definitely give the other a chance.
While I think Fullmetal Alchemist would be enjoyed by nearly everyone, it has some similarities that Trigun fans will especially like. Like Trigun, FMA has a lot of humor mixed in with a serious and complex plotline. In comparison, FMA is more serious and deep story-wise than Trigun and is definitely a series that everyone should see once in their life.
With a variety of characters who can be serious, deadly, or quirky, Fullmetal Alchemist and Trigun both go hand-in-hand with their arm-changing protagonists, enjoyable fights, and wonderful storylines.
Both series center on main characters trying to do the best in their dangerous world while not wishing to harm those around them.
Both anime take a serious tone added in with laughter to lighten the mood of the story. Great characters and settings are found in both. The characters while wild and silly have a nice serious side to them that doesn't ruin the parts in the series that are suppose to be serious. If you liked one check out the other.
These series have a similar pattern of development for the main character, along with a not-quite-real setting and plenty of action. If you enjoyed one of these series, it would be worth it to check the other one out.
Do you like your protagonist to wildly swing between cheerful to moody in the time span of a few seconds? Do you like wide worlds featuring stand-alone episodes that are solely to showcase the protagonist's ideals? Do you like drama surrounding someone, somewhere plotting something devious? Then these two are for you.
Ban Midou and Ginji Amano are the Get Backers. With a 99 percent success rate in returning lost or stolen property to its original owners, they will do anything for the right price. Midou and Ginji often get hired for seemingly ordinary jobs that turn out to be more difficult than they appear; and whether it’s finding a doll for a girl, retrieving a stolen rare violin or getting mixed up with the mob, they have many adventures with plenty of petty squabbles along the way!
Both Trigun and Get Backers share a similar air. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about these two animes just make me feel like they belong together.
Both GetBackers and Trigun have interesting and unique stories, and while the two stories aren't similar to one another, they share a lot in terms of comedy. Vash fron Trigun and one of the main characters in GetBackers, Ginji are similar characters and both have deep pasts that are shown beautifully throughout their respective series.
If you liked the outlandish comedy alongside the good story and fight scenes in one of these series, you should find a sense of familiarity in the other.
Trigun and Get Backers are loads of fun, but have sad stories hiding in their respective backgrounds. The main characters both suffer from sad and terrible pasts but have embraced their new lives with joy and energy, never letting on about the pain they must feel. In each anime the main characters influence people along the way and work out their pasts.
I'd recommend watching both of these anime. If you liked one, you should like the other!
Okay i've seen that Trigun and Getbackers got something in common and its the past. Trigun and Getbackers got some mysterious and dark past and their past is still haunting forever. The story of those two anime is revolving around their past, everything that they do is related with their past.
Both of this series got comedy that i believe you will love it. LOL so much fun .. It's a must to watch both of it!!
Trigun and Get Backers have characters with supernatural powers, both are telling the adventures of the main characters and comedy included, while revealing the secrets of their lives.
In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...
Something struck me as similar when I saw a guy in a red overcoat with a bad-ass silver gun in one hand and yellow sunglasses. Okay, so he doesn't have Vash's hair, but Alucard is still a bad-ass character. Based on that alone, I think you'd like Hellsing.
There's something about a guy in a red coat with an oversized handgun.
TRIGUN and Hellsing both have a badass main character with a goal in mind; Alucard's trying to find a strong adversary and Vash is trying to kill Knives. if you liked one of these series I can almost guarantee you would be interested in the other.
Although the lead characters' personalities may differ, both series are about a guy in a long red coat with a gun that's a bit too big. Trigun will give you a lot more laughs then Hellsing but both Hellsing and Trigun have tons of action and an engaging story to them (Trigun has a deeper story in my opinion). If you like one you will most likely be a fan of the other.
Vash in his red clothing and glasses really resembles Alucard, but even more like one other religious character from "Hellsing". Sometimes it even seems that Vash came into the "Hellsing" series to act as Alucard. However both anime are full of action, some funny moments and both main characters really enjoy their destiny. And also in the end it turns out that both characters have something mysterious to hide...
Badass immortal grandmaster gunslingers with long red coats and cool round yellow sunglasses... of course!
No, what really made me connect Hellsing and Trigun is that they share a similar musical soundscape. If music is something you pay attention to, and you liked the soundtrack of one, you'd like the other. Be warned that the tone and genre are very different.
These series have the same type of action, but the main characters personas are different. As in Trigun, Vash, doesn't like to kill people--but yet has killed millions with a billion d-dollars on his head. As in Hellsing, Alucard, he loves to kill and have vamparic powers with a master he must obey.
Oh and the main characters both wear red coats and googles/glasses. Both of these series are great and are packed with enough action to satisfy you on your viewing journey.
The protagonist is a gunwielding, rec-cloak wearing, sunglasses donning badass whose attitude often doesn't match his setting. Alucard is a smartass and sarcastic, Vash is a goofball that loves donuts. But, put them to the test, and they always win.
