In a post-apocalyptic future, Abel Nightroad does occasional dangerous work for the Vatican, to whom he is extremely loyal. While the apocalyptic war has long been over, humanity is still entrenched in a shadow war against the vampires. Lady Catherine, the leader of his operations group "AX," seeks to prevent a renewed full-scale conflict, but there are many forces on both sides bent towards war. As Abel and the rest of AX try to stop this, he encounters a young girl who will be the key to humanity's survival or demise. Now, Abel must not only fight for humanity, but also try to face his regrettable past...

“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.

If there ever was a carbon copy of a main character, it's Abel (copied from Trigun's Vash). Both polarize between being an extremely goofy and aloof person to a quiet and semi-badass. In both cases, the two extremes end up being (in my opinion) far too different to be plausible and consequently end up being annoying. Regardless, Trinity Blood is like Trigun with vampires.


Both shows are quite different except for the protaginists from each mirror each other almost perfectly. They way they act, their ideals, and the things that haunt them. For this alone you should try the other if you liked one.


Trinity Blood is like a combination of Hellsing and Trigun. Depending on which part appealed to you more, you may like either one. If you liked Abel's bipolar character, check out Trigun. Vash has the same goofy appearance, which makes everyone think he's just a bumbling fool. Then when he gets down to business, he's suddenly the most skilled fighter around and the animation even changes subtly to make him look pretty badass. Vash also reflects Abel's desire not to kill and to 'all just get along,' although I'd say Vash's is a stronger resolution. To round out the similarities, both characters have a mysterious nemesis from their past they must ultimately confront.


Trigun and Trinity Blood are basically the same stories, with the same basic lead character, and a different world. Sure, they each sound different, and the plot seems to go in a different direction, but it always ends up in the same place: the overly (to the point of ridiculousness) kind protagonist (who is exceptionally skilled and powerful) saves the day with no casualties, changing the world one life at a time. But there is one being (his peer out of the distant past) seeking to destroy everything who he is, and he must once again face this being.

I guess it's a good formula, but it's definitely a formula.


Well, Trinity Blood is pretty much a mixture of Trigun and Hellsing in story, and the male lead has a comparable personality as well. Trinity Blood pulls off a slightly longer story, but Vash > Abel.


Abel (Trinity Blood) and Vash (Trigun) are both very weak, lazy, and seem to be uncool; yet in fact, they are both powerful and very cool. The darkness of their respective pasts is another factor that makes them relate to each other.


In both Trinity Blood and Trigun, the main protagonist is clumsy and foolish, but is in fact very powerful and intelligent. He comes from a superior race, but is coexisting with normal humans and is desperate to protect them, and not harm his enemies. Also, both characters have a very similar history and tragedies in their pasts. They are at first misunderstood, but as people get to know them they realize that the main characters are very kind and caring people who refuse to use their powers unless it is for the sake of others.


Trigun and Trinity Blood center around main characters who act like the goofy comic relief, but when in a bind turn into the serious hero, all the while having to deal with the problems that come from keeping their promises not to kill anyone. But just because they can't kill, doesn't mean these anime don't have plenty of action.


Both Trigun and Trinity Blood have main characters that are extremely goofy, are unlikely heroes who wish not to kill anyone, and have unrealistic ideologies. However, when things get serious the characters completely change into serious fighters who will do anything to stop people from getting hurt. While the tones may differ these two series feel very familiar.


I can't really do this without giving up spoilers but let's just say that the protagonists in both series are goofy easy going guys who can turn totally badass serious when needed. Both series have similar themes and overall plot. Both lead characters come from mysterious origins and are put in a position of responsibility over the human race. I pretty much felt like I was watching the same series as Trigun when I watched Trinity Blood. They both combine serious mystery, shonen action, and slapstick comedy in all the right ways.


If you liked Trinity Blood, specifically the character of Abel Nightroad, you might enjoy Trigun, which sports a similar character in Vash the Stampede.  Of course, their settings are vastly different, and Trinity Blood's latter half is far more political than anything Trigun offers.  Also, Trigun focuses more on comedy (and executes it far better, in my personal opinion).


Post Apocaliptic Worlds, a confused humanity, present day technologies considered like some sort of magic no one knows about anymore, lots of guns, a goofy-funny- well intended main character with a misterious past and lots of hidden powers. Whom in this world does not like any of these things O.O I wonder? So in case you heard anything you like, well you are indeed in the right way to watch a really good series.


I first watched Trinity blood because a friend reccommended it to me because I like Blood+.  But when I saw the first episode, all I could think of was how much it reminded me of Trigun.  Well, first of all, the main characters, Abel and Vash are very similar in their everyday personalities.  Both goofy and loveable, but also incredibly powerful and dangerous beings.  There are also somewhat similar supporting characters who balance the main guys out.

The differences being that Trinity Blood is alot darker and quite a bit more bloody and violent.  Trinity Blood is like Trigun but darker, and vith vampires.


Trigun and Trinity Blood are eerily similar in their tones, several of the characters, and the overall story arc. A man with a mysterious, yet painful past that tries to hide behind a mask of innocence? An eventual plot to destroy all of humanity? Mayhem and charnage wherever the main character goes?

Despite their similarities, the two shows do differ enough that you won't feel as you are rehashing something you have already seen. If you enjoyed one, try the other.


The main character in both series appears to be a bumbling idiot most of the time, but when trouble comes calling they both reveal that they have superhuman level abilities. The worlds each series takes place in also both have a similar steampunk-ish feel.


If ever there were two shows that were more alike than these twon they were probably the same show. Both shows feature the a happy-go-lucky protagonists who are secretly total badasses who have lived for millennia and were part of a plan to colonise another planet to save the remainig human population. Both Vash and Abel have vowed never to kill but insist of saving the world from the udder anhilation that their brothers intend to bring upon humanity. That's not all both the loveable traveling monk and the inoccent outlaw are followed by a rather peculiar entourage of women, that are well some what important to the story. heck even their names are alike TRIgun TRInity blood.SO...gosh i'm longwinded...if your a TRIGUN fan (and really who isn't) give trinity blood a watching  or if your love Abel Nightroad and haven't yet watched the japanese animation masterpiece that is trigun i suggest that your start watching it immediately, what are you doing still wasting your time reading this recomendation start watchin TRIGUN now!


Both male leads have somewhat mysterious backgrounds that have lead them to be how they are when the story takes place.  They both also share similar styles in storytelling in that for the most part the characters retain this somewhat goofy manner but then quickly change into being somewhat badasses.  There are other numerous similarties between the two that is quite obvious.  So if you liked one then you should check out the other.


You would definitely like Trigun if you've seen Trinity Blood [and vice versa]. Both main characters have a dark past and are capable of devastating power. Both Vash [Trigun] and Abel [Trinity Blood] bring comic relief while also gradually becoming more serious as the series goes on. I found both series to be quite entertaining and I'm certain that if you liked one you'll like the other! ^_^v


Trigun and Trinity Blood are similar. The main character is a fairly goofy man with a large appetite, who, in moments of crisis becomes a warrior. The plot, when it surfaces, is also fairly similar. The only difference is replacing vampires with a western or vice versa.


Both animes are different except the main characters, because Abel is certainly a rip off of Vash. His personality and everything alse (except his outlook) is exact copy of Vash. So you can watch Trinity Blood if you want to see a copy of Vash being a baka priest xD


If you enjoyed Trinity Blood, check out Trigun. Both are stories with an underlying serious theme of world peace and each has a protagonist that is uniquely suited to helping the world to achieve this noble goal.  Both protagonists harbor a secret weapon to accomplish this goal.  Trinity Blood takes itself more seriously and has political resonances, while Trigun aims more ttoward pushing comedy and action.So, if you want a Trinity Blood with less politics and scheming and more action, then Trigun would be a good anime to try next.


Pretty much the same characters with much of the same plot, just different settings. Both are quite enjoyable but lacking in their conclusions.

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...

Trinity Blood is basically a combination of Hellsing and Trigun. If you liked Trinity Blood for the fighting and style (and vampires), you'd surely like the much better Hellsing.


If you liked Trinity Blood, you'd like hellsing because both are filled with vampires, blood, and action. If you liked one, try out the other!


Trinity Blood is like a combination of Hellsing and Trigun. Depending on which part appealed to you more, you may like either one. If you liked the vampire theme and the fighting, check out Hellsing. Alucard is a bit like Abel would be if you took away his bumbling, goofy side. Lady Integra, Alucard's 'master', also reminds me a lot of Cardinal Caterina. Both series also have a religious emphasis, though Alucard works for the Protestant English, rather than the Vatican. Hellsing is basically a full series comprised of the darker side of Trinity Blood.


Both series involve a character that is one of the "others" in order to fight the enemy (that is to say, each are vampires who fight other vampires). They also unwittingly drag in a female lead who ends up playing a significant role in helping them.


If you like uber vampires, religious zealots, amazing character development and a complex plot, both of these anime will be a total treat!


If you want to see the good version of Trinity Blood, I suggest you watch Hellsing. It also has a very strong hunter on the prowl for vampires, who has fairly similar abilities. But in terms of action, story and simply having a badass main character, Hellsing surpasses everything in Trinity Blood.


If you liked Hellsing (or Trinity Blood), you should watch the other as well because they are both about vampires, talk (*cough*bad*cough*) about the church, and have a touch of fun and a lot of seriousness to them. Trinity Blood has more girls in it though. XD


Are you looking for another anime in which a vampire works for a hidden organization, to protect humans from his own kind? If so, Hellsing and Trinity Blood are the anime for you!


Both Hellsing and Trinity Blood are anime about humans versus vampires, and both of the main characters are also super-powerful vampires that work for the human vampire-fighting organizations. There's also plenty of action, fighting and blood to go around.


Vampires are sexy. They are even more so when they get "tamed" and fight beside humans against their own kind. Alucard and Abel are both creatures that fit this description, taking note that Alucard doesn't hold back on his powers and delights us with more demonstrations of his strength than Abel does. If you like vampires, I recommend both of these anime.


Trinity Blood and Hellsing can be described as vampire stories with somewhat unorthodox Christian imagery. TB has more humour and is less bloody, it also caters a likable hero in a glamorous fantasy set; Hellsing takes place in a much more realistic world, is quite heavy on the gore factor and sports an anti-hero with a dose of edgy cynicism. Political schemes play an important part in these series and they both lack a clear resolution, making for rather weak endings.


Both Trinity Blood and Hellsing are good, strong vampire anime. Both the main characters go out and fight the creatures of the night, which gives them friends, but they have to destroy their foe's as well.

In short: If you like the one, you will like the other.


Although both follow a vampire/demon/action theme, Hellsing is a darker, bloodier, politically twisted version of Trinity Blood. If you liked Trinity Blood, then you'll love Hellsing.


If you liked the part about vampire fighting against other vampires and gore in Trinity Blood, then you should check Hellsing or Hellsing OVA. Similar theme can be found in Hellsing series, but somehow it works there much better than in Trinity Blood.

P.S. Trinity Blood did mess with religious stuff pretty bad, while Hellsing manages to do it right.


Vampires killing vampires. Is there anything more badass than that? Both series feature this. The protagonists are both powerful vampires in the service of the Church, have "release stages", a female companion, a female director to take orders from, and a troublesome past. If you liked the other, or like vampires and cool characters in general, you'll surely like this one too.


Vampires taking over the world because human weapons are not enough to stop them. That's exactly the line of thinking these 2 series share in addition of simmilar "main guys" with secret abilities and a taste for vampire killings. If you are into the "I'm the boss and you vampire are not any longer" kind of anime (even after those blood suckers had a really good time) seasoned wit some really sweet/attractive anime girls as main aids, this are your series.


A very obvious recommendation, but when you see both shows, you will understand why. Lots of ass-kicking vampires set in a dark and not too distant future, both Hellsing and Trinity Blood will appeal to violence junkies. With the characters being the main source of attraction in both, I'm sure fans of one will love the other.


Both are series of Vampires vs. Humans. Both AX and the Hellsing organisation, are secret organisations, with religious influances (more so for AX as it is a Vatican secret organisation). Both of these organisations employ greater beings in there missions. Abel and Alucard are very much alike, with Abel being more cheerful and clumsy from day to day. Both of these characters have a female side kick and both answer to noble mistresses (Cardinal Catrina and Sir Integra)

Both sereis have brilliant develpoment, and character.


Scary creatures, vampires and Wacko religous groups, what;s not to love. Hellsing features a somewhat more grotesque post-apocalipic war between humans and vampires than Trinity Blood but both are excelant shows with awesome characters, even better plots and are still short enough to watch in a few days. Hellsing vampire freaks should check out trinity blood hey your might even catch a few refrences to some historical vampire stoies and the same goes for fans on trinity blood if your up for a few good hours of noir vampire slaughter i suggest that Hellsing be your first stop.


Both of these anime involve a super-powered vampire who takes a young woman under his wing. There is a power struggle between vampires and humans. The super-powered vampire works for a vampire-hunting organization, and uses power levels when fighting.


So far Trinity Bloods looks like a mix between Devil May Cry and Hellsing, specially Abel Nightroad which share several traits with both Alucard and Dante.

Black Blood Brothers, like Trinity Blood, is another anime with a vampire for a main character. Similar themes are in both anime such as the pain of eternal life, losing a loved one, being betrayed by your closest friends, and the desperate attempt to create a new world for both vampires and humans.


Do you like anime about vampires? If so, you'd like BBB and TB.

Both main characters are vampires who have a bad boy attitude in battles; in real life, however, they are as soft and innocent as one can be, and they both are involved in a war against vampires which threatens humanity.

I think that you will love the humor, action, happiness and sadness that these anime have.


Being someone who tries everything in order to bring peace between different races - humans and vampires, is always a hard job. But you need to do your best so the ones you care about may not be hurt. The lead male characters in both Black Blood Brothers and Trinity Blood - Jirou and Abel, are the kind of guys who after deciding on something, do everything in their power just to see it realized. They are both tough and hard to deal with when it comes to arguing, but deep inside they are soft and caring. Also, they can be considered defenders of justice and peace. And I am sure everyone will deffinitely like them both!


I think you'd like them because they're both funny nad have the same theme.Maybe my opinion is little biased cause i've watched them in he same period of time and partially because of them i became anime fan.But when i watched them i had the same feeling about both so...

I'm just trying to say that if you like vampires it's a must.


Both Trinity Blood and Black Blood Brothers have very powerful monsters as their main characters, but these monsters both have a softer human side that is revealed through their relationships with the people they want to protect.Both the main character can seem bumbling and innocent one minute and deadly dangerous the next.

Both show also deal with losing loved ones and spend time developing the relationships between the characters. There are also alot of conspiricy elements in each show.


Both Trinity Blood and Black Blood Brothers feature a-typical vampires trying their best to prevent the world, and those they love, from being destroyed by darker forces.

Each has lighthearted moments and excellent comedy intersperced throughout, to keep the show from becoming too serious or battle focused. Each has an enveloping plot, and each world stands on its own as real, engaging, and impossible to drop.


Vampires with a caste system trying to find piece with the human race, the common struggle in both of these animes. You also have ancient feuds, impressive allies, and a main character with a dark history.


If you like vampires and strong characters that'll stick with you you'll like both of these. Like Black Blood brothers, Trinity blood has a male vampire as the main character..well..he is a vampire..just one that drinks blood of other vampires. They also have a strong female character as a main as well. In both she becomes a strong and cool headed important character. The animes have the same feel to them. I could watch both over and over.

Chrono Crusade

Chrono Crusade

It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.

Both Trinity Blood and Chrono Crusade are about organizations connected to the Vatican which try to protect normal people against danger. And of course, in both, a girl is paired with a boy who has mysterious and monster-like powers. Even so, the girl keeps believing in him and aids him through his hardships.


Trinity Blood and Chrono Crusade share their religous theme and in addition add interesting and immersive characters to follow. Where Trinity Blood swaps vampires in place of demons, there's a very dark element present in both as well.

Both have good action, while Chrono Crusade is a little heavier on humor than Trinity Blood, they both blend the laughs into the rest of the story well!


A catholic army's fight between immortal and mortal. If you like crusades (christian military), you can find in both animes.


Both of these anime have significant religious themes found in them. Both of them deal heavily in hunting something that is a threat to the church (in the case of Chrono Crusade, Devils and Trinity Blood Vampires). The both also have characters that you wouldn't think the Church would employ to help with the good fight (in Chrono Crusade a Devil and in Trinity Blood a Crusnik). Both of these anime also have a good deal of humor to lighten the load but with out detering from the story at hand.


Superficially, both anime deal with religion (the "nuns with guns" concept) and have similar premises: the male protagonist is not human and is working to defend humanity. 

On a deeper level, both anime have a similar feel- dealing with heavy issues such as large-scale good vs. evil while still managing to add some comedy.  Things get progressively darker and more serious toward the end of both anime, and the female protagonists share a sense of determination and dogged optimism through the hardships that they endure.


The Japanese story writers certainly have a flair when it comes to writing about the Christian church battling against hoardes of evil demons and vampires.

Trinity Blood and Chrono Crusade both appeal to a large fanbase as they have a group of very likable characters. The fighting and action give way to a very dark secret in both shows that will totally sideswipe the viewer.

I'm sure people who enjoyed one will appreciate the other.


Both Trinity Blood and Chrono Crusade are very close in animation. They both have the same sort of atmosphere. Both of them have a biblical basis and lots of action scenes. So if you liked one I'm sure you'll like the other.

Devil May Cry

Devil May Cry

Dante works as a demon hunter for the office of Devil May Cry, and as he is always in debt he doesn't have the luxury to turn down jobs as long as they pay well. His latest assignment is to be a bodyguard for the young Patty Lowe while she receives her inheritance.

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!

Take an episodic adventure and combine it with a strong character who fights demons, a bit of humor, and a special feeling; both Trinity Blood and DMC are this kind of anime. Trinity Blood has more humor, but it still is similar to DMC. These two anime should both be to your liking.


If you like the characters' that is one side serious and another funny, and if you like the themes 'to protect human from harm' and 'love and peace', these are the anime you have to watch.


The good guys defeat the bad ones and there's your typical happy end. But in these stories it's not so typical. Dante from Devil May Cry is a demon hunter who on top of that is a son of the demon Sparda. Abel from Trinity Blood is an absend-minded priest who in reality is Crusnik - a vampire that hunts other vampires and feeds on them. Well, they're not your everyday fellows, don't you think? Despite these facts, both are the caring type and both have problems with money. Another critical for the story-line fact is that the world depends on them, otherwise it won't be even a place you could call home.


Though these two are very similar but do not expect the same kind of laughs or tears or suspense from either of them. I think that the Half demon walking slaughterfest private I. that is is Dantes would be a perfect match the megavolt crusnik vampire moonlighting as a Catholic priest to save the world. Both show have their own style of comedy D.M.C. is a bit more on the noir side. 

Anyway if your still reading this than i hope that you watch theses shows because hey are so similar yet bring completely different things to the table. Also both thee shows are like trigun so if you just happen to be a trigun fan who hasn't watched either of these just check 'em out sometime.


So far Trinity Bloods looks like a mix between Devil May Cry and Hellsing, specially Abel Nightroad which share several traits with both Alucard and Dante.
