Michiru has an unusual ability: she can see a dark ring around a person's neck that signifies their time to die. However, she suppressed her powers once she "saw" the deaths of her parents – until now. After accidentally seeing rings around the necks of two boys in her school, it seems that Michiru's powers are back for good. The two are zombies who are working for the secret loan office known as Zombie-Loan, and they need Michiru's help to find other zombies – those with dark black rings around their necks. Though Michiru initially refuses, due to a series of events it seems she has no choice but to comply...
An organization known to the dark side of the world as Chronos claims to desire world peace, employing the top thirteen assassins in the world known as 'Erasers.' They each have a weapon customized to fit their style, all made out of orichalcum ore, the strongest material available on Earth. Number 13, Train Heartnet (codenamed Black Cat) is the most famous and revered of the thirteen Chronos numbers, but in the light of a tragic event he has come to question his path in life. Together with Sven Vollfied, a struggling bounty hunter and a living weapon named Eve, Train takes up a job as a bounty hunter - all the while running from the other Erasers and Creed Diskenth, a crazed man whom wants him to join the Apostles of the Stars, a group made to destroy Chronos.
If you like anime about bounty hunters with a touch of comedy and a great story, you'd like Zombie Loan and Black Cat. The characters travel around the world, discover new places, get stronger, and get both themselves and other people out of trouble.
These two animes both involve bounty hunting. In Zombie-Loan they hunt for zombies and in Black Cat they hunt for criminals. Both of them have a great plot and they both have little bits of comic relief. They both seem to pull of being quirky and serious at the same time. If you liked one of them you'll love the other. They're a must see.
Zombie-Loan and Black Cat are both fast paced action series revolving are bounty hunters with supernatual skills and abilities. Both shows blend comedy and action, if you don't mind a little silliness mixed in with good action then you will enjoy both these shows.
Both main characters, Chika and Train act the same and look similar. Both are about mysteries and solving crimes.
Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.
The zombies portrayed in Zombie Loan are very similar to Hollows in Bleach in my eyes. Lost souls turning good by being hunted seems to be a common theme in both.
The storylines in these two are quite similar--the main character has an ability that is utilized to put "undead" souls (or Hollows) to rest. As they find out more about this alternate world, they find the strength to fight for themselves and what they believe in.
Both Bleach and Zombie-Loan focus on the use of spiritual powers to eliminate supernatural enemies. While Bleach is much more involved in the subject, Zombie-Loan also has a unique take on the higher, heavenly organization and how it effects humans back in the normal world. If you loved Bleach you will appreciate Zombie-Loan; if you found Zombie-Loan interesting I guarentee you will like Bleach.
Both Bleach and Zombie-Loan utilize the theme of fighting lost souls. The "zombies" and the "hollows" are very similar, and it is the job of the protagonists to fight them. Both Ichigo and Michiru get drafted into the fight after showing signs of spiritual abilities.
Ouri is an orphan who was raised by Keisei, a man he considers to be his older brother. One night, Ouri finds a strange wounded girl in the temple of the orphanage. Cold and covered in scars, Ouri initially thinks that she is dead – that is, until a mysterious talking cat tells him that she is a Shikabane – a corpse. After secretly watching Keisei heal the girl without explanation, Ouri decides it's time to leave the nest. However, he has picked a poor time, and he soon realizes that he's tangled in a strange, supernatural web. Why does Ouri continually meet this girl as she hunts monsters? What does Keisei have to do with it all and what exactly is her mission?
This one is one of those gut feeling recs. Shikabane is slightly more serious, and the monsters more disturbing, but I believe that if you like Zombie Loan, you might want to give Shikabane a try.
Like the undead protagonists that destroy the artificial versions of what they truly are? Zombie-Loan and Shikabane Hime have a lot in common and there's more than enough monster-killing carnage in one or the other to keep you hooked!
Both the plots are in a way similar and both series deal with undead fighting other undead. In Shikabane Hime, the Himes fight to defeat 108 Corpses to ascend to heaven, in Zombie-Loan, the zombies fight other zombies to pay off their loans. In both series we can find a person who is at first more or les unaware of what is happening and decides at last to join in the fight and help their undead friends.
Sumire Takahana was a once normal high school student, until one day, she picked up a mysterious brooch and began to see soul-eating demons known as Virus. Now under attack, Sumire was saved by the owner of the brooch, Lucia, and Lucia’s Vaccine-loaded gun. However, instead of shooting the Virus, Lucia accidentally shot Sumire herself, turning her into a living antivirus. Together, Sumire and Lucia will try to uncover the secrets of the Virus before they devour all of humankind.
Zombie Loan and Venus Versus Virus are each anime about a pair of fighters working together against an undead sort of threat. The characters in both pairs are defined individuals, and far from immune to quarreling with their partner. The two groups also have to deal with solving some level of conspiracy by their enemies, despite the short length of the shows. To top it off, both series have a noticeably gothic theme to them. The fact that one pair is male and the other female does give off a slightly different dynamic, but all the same if you liked one of these series don't be afraid to look into the other.
Both series have very similar premises--ordinary-turned-fighter characters battling supernatural entities and working to pay off a debt of sorts. The characters also have equivalents in each show--the older man who runs the business, the office helper, and the fighters themselves.
Both silly and frivilous, these two shows try to take themselves far too seriously and never really get anywhere with it. With serious potential bubbling beneath the surface, I felt like there was a lot more could be happening that didn't.
That said, if you enjoy the numerous gun battles in either show, and a twist of the evil, then these two shows will appeal to the same group of fans.
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?
Both series have kick-ass male characters that are more than what they seem, they both also have horror and supernatural themes and all the action you could ask for.
Both of these animes have a team of fighters who tend to hunt down members of their own kind, and both animes have main chracters who are contracted to fight. And both anime include an otherwise female character who can "see" the enemy (Yin or Michiru). With some interesting fight scenes, these anime will definitely catch your attention
