STN is a secret organization charged with capturing witches of all ages who misuse their inate ability of the Craft. Its newest recruit is a young girl named Robin, who wields the same power that she is helping to control. While skillful at their ability to detain quickly, the number of witches keeps seeming to increase, and the misuse of power grows stronger, casting a shadow of doubt as to what is really going on. For STN, there is much work ahead, and for Robin, her troubles are just beginning...
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 Witch Hunter Robin and Chrno Crusade have a supernatural, dark, and interesting feel to them. While WHR is a bit more on the serious side, both CC and WHR have a very similar feel, and will appeal to viewers of either show.
Though Witch Hunter Robin and Chrono Crusade might have a completely different animation style, they are very alike in their plots: both deal with supernatural beings, be it witches or demons, and have a character who must fight their own kind to protect the world. While other anime with this kind of plot might be low on story and high on action, these two anime make sure they do the opposite! They both have a solid story and provide less action than you'd expect.
Thousands of years in the future, the world is overrun by demons and vampire lords. Doris, a young girl, has become the target of the great vampire lord Count Magnus Lee, who wants her as his plaything. After being bitten by the Count, she seeks the help of D, an elite vampire hunter, who decides he must venture out to slay the Count and his demon underlings to save this girl in despair.
Both WHR and VHD are intelligent, action-packed and plot-driven thrillers. Both contain a distant hero you want to get closer to, but are also terrified of. They both do a wonderful job of weaving you into their web seamlessly - leaving you only wanting more.
With great power comes great responsibility. Cliche words, of course, but in Vampire Hunter D and Witch Hunter Robin, I feel they ring true. Both series have protagonists who use their abilites to hunt down their own kind, while at the same time being shunned by those they defend. A dark atmosphere and suspense are present in both, which adds to an already good story. If you enjoyed one, I am sure you will enjoy the other.
In the human world, there live demonic invaders named Shinma who prey upon the fragile souls of humans. The only hope for the humans is one of demonkind: Miyu, who is fated to destroy the Shinma and send them back to whence they came. Although half-human herself, as well as living amongst them as a typical high school student, she bears no compassion for those she saves, as well as condemns. Along with Larva, her subservient, Miyu sets out to destroy evil, one Shinma at a time.
Both series are both kind of dreary, and in the series, they both fight that which they themselves are a part of. They both have a strong, quiet female lead, and have a strong guy backing them up! Finally... they both have the same feel to them, in that the pace and tempo of the series are both very similar.
They have a few differences but for the most part, if you liked one, you will like the other!
In the not too distant future, discrimination is based not on the color of your skin, but the psychic powers you possess. The wielders of these skills (known as E's) are persecuted in the slums of Gald, but are coveted in Ashuram, a military organization dedicated to enhancing these abilities for mysterious purposes. For one man named Kai, his journey from one of Ashuram's best to one of Gald's finest will take him through the heart of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy not only all E's, but all humans on the planet as well...
Both animes contain characters with psychic/magic powers. Normal people hate those with psychic/magic powers, and thus the psychics are allowed a limited use of their powers. But not all care about that, some misuse their powers. Then there are those people in organizations with secret objectives who want to control the psychics/witches. Both animes contain may fights, as well as a small touch of romance.
Mai Taniyama is a first year high school student who lives a carefree life telling ghost stories with her friends. One day, she meets Kazuya Shibuya, the head of Shibuya Psychic Research (SPR); and together, she tags along to help him investigate paranormal activities in a haunted school building. His assistant Lin was hurt during an incident to protect Mai from danger, so what more can Mai do than to take the job as Shibuya's assistant? Along with a team of other ghost hunters, they will uncover the mystery of a strange case coming their way, while Mai starts to discover her own abilities.
While the premise of these two shows is very similar, their actual circumstances are quite different. While Mai, the heroine of GH, has no special abilities, Robin is recruited specifically because of hers. However, their intuition and naiveté often help to save the day.
if you liked one of these you would surely love the other, although in both series the object of it is hunting, although they hunt different things these animes have a lot in common, horror, supernatural and the tiniest little hint of romance (and i mean tiny) although witch hunter robin does have slightly more action, where ghost hunter just pretty much goes for the shock, horror, intense value.
