Now, Dante must not only hunt demons and coexist peacefully with other hunters, but also handle the responsibility of taking care of a little girl!
If you liked Devil May Cry or Trigun, then you may easily like the other. Both boast similar artwork and fighting styles and both deliver a fun storyline filled with action-packed sequences. They both revolve around a main character who is terribly misunderstood and tug on the sympathy strings in the audience.
Both are supernatural anime that are episodic in nature and include some all out brawls involving an expert gunfighter. The main character likes to pretend he doesn't care much, but his skill and determination in battle proves otherwise. Both protagonists also have a fairly interesting and dramatic past.
Ellis is a young girl who possesses a strange ability to manipulate particles, and has an unfortunate case of amnesia. After accidentally killing a professor in the middle of an experiment, Ellis fled to Mexico and lived under the care of an old lady for many years, but her past has finally caught up with her; there's a price on her head, and men trying to capture her, dead or alive. She meets the bounty hunter Nadie, who befriends her and helps her escape; and together, they decide to travel south to Winay Marka, “The Land of Eternity”, to find clues about Ellis’ past. What’s the origin of Ellis’ powers, and what does “Project Leviathan” have to do with it?
Both animes are very similar. First both main characters deal with guns. Second they both sort of have a wild wild west type of scene. Third both main characters have a bounty on their head with other people constantly coming after them to claim the reward. Lastly both are very good, but Trigun is more famous.
Both are Western themed series. Main characters are both gun-toting and tend to not kill their enemies. Trigun is funnier, but both have elements of humor in them. There is also a fantasy theme in both, as in Trigun Vash is more than human, as is Ellis in El Cazador. If you like one, you would probably like the other.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
Both have crazy humor, crazy characters, a great soundtrack about growing up, and deal with the idea of catching up one's past and learning to take responsibility for one's actions. Trigun and FLCL deal heavily in both; I believe if you liked one you'd like the other.
Rally Vincent and Minnie May are twogirls with a lot of fire power. When they are not busy managing their gun store, they are working as bounty-hunter duo the Gunsmith Cats. Rally's incredible gunslinging skills and Minnie's obsession for big explosions make the GunSmith Cats a deadly force, and every task an adventure.

Now, Seras must serve her master, Alucard and work for Integra Wingates Hellsing. Nefarious vampire activities are being reported throughout England, and it all traces back to the organization named “Millennium”. Will the Hellsing organization, under the command of Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing, be able to prevent a full scale war? Or will the world become a battlefield of destruction?
Vash and Alucard although totally different in nature are both extremely cool gun toting protagonists. If great gun fighting is your thing then you'll enjoy both series'.
Badass characters, great gunfights, good animation and one hell of a sountrack. What would an anime fan want more? OK it may not be in taste for some people but both series are a very enjoyable to watch.If you liked one you would surely like the other.
