Köinzell is a master swordsman who, along with thirteen other heroes, was sent by the Szaalenden Empire to block an invasion of their enemy Wischtech. Along the way three died, four betrayed the others and seven defeated the traitors and returned as heroes. At least, that's what people believe. In reality the ‘Seven Heroes' were the real traitors, defeating the four true champions after the seven had fled the battle in cowardice. Köinzell has bided his time for twenty years, honing his skills and recovering from the brink of death so that he may avenge his fallen comrades. The time for vengeance has finally come and all who stand in his way shall be dismembered without hesitation, but it won't be easy as everyone believes the lies of the traitors. With all the soldiers in the land and the public against them, Köinzell and his ragtag allies may have to sacrifice everything if they are to prevail against the might of the entire nation.
Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawk. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the Band of the Hawk, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Very soon, what seems like a straightforward march for conquest becomes a harrowing struggle for humanity and life itself. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?
Both manga are set in an old-style fantasy world, with knights, monsters, swords, lords, faeries, and magic. Unlike many fantasy manga, these stories are both dark and stories of betrayal. They both have similar content in terms of sex and violence; breasts and blood appear regularly. The protagonists in both stories are strong, have dark pasts that are unveiled over the course of the story, and gather a following of useful but weaker companions who travel with them throughout the world.
While I'm not sure that if you like a great manga like Berserk you will like average one like Ubell Blatt, but the other way around is a certain thing.Still I will keep it as both ways, since they have really similar theme/story (the main difference is quality)
In both mangas the main character is really strong swordsman, who wans to get revenge on his former companion/s for the betrayal that costed him a lot. In both cases the vendetta is outside the law, and the character often crosses paths with forces of law, protecting his target/s.
Both mangas have dark, medieval theme with addition of magic. Both are very brutal, and don't mind showing some explicit gore/nudity.
The stories are simliar in a multitude of ways, both main characters seeking vengence after being betrayed the person/people closest to them. Ubel Blatt art style is not as dark as berserk but still dark. The plots are quite good, nice character development.
If you liked either Ubel Blatt or Berserk, you should give the other a try.
In a land overrun by yoma - monsters that feed upon human innards and take on the appearance and memories of their victims - humans are little more than cattle awaiting slaughter. The only opposition to the yoma is The Organization, a group led by a council of mysterious men who send out their all-female warriors (known as claymores) to do their bidding. However, The Organization is not charitable; a town must pay an exorbitant fee for their services. Likewise, many of the claymores care little for those who they protect. Clare, the lowest ranked claymore, lives only so that she may one day avenge her mentor.
Medvial times, swords fights, fantasy creasures such as elfs and demons and an amazing story. Both of these share those same treats, if you like one you'll definetly enjoy the other.
Both Claymore and Ubel Blatt are medievalish, fantasy, action adventure series. Both of those are rather dark and contain lots of gore (keep in mind that Uble Blatt contains more mature themes than just that). If you liked one of those two, then checking out the other one might be worth it.
I dont want to write it the long way so i will put it in few sentences. They are all about an exceptional swordmen (young) that is fighting only for revenge. The only difference is that Ares takes part in wars as mercenary and there are other 2 guyz that are expectional too and so some side-events unfold. Ares is made purely of humans and wars.
While Dark Air is nowhere near as dark and filled with explicite content as Ubel Blatt, both of those series are a good read for any fantasy, action-adventure fan. Also, in both of those series the male lead looks like a kid (well in Dark Air he is a kid) for which he is underestimated by his enemies, while in reality he is extremly strong and badass (though this triat is more visible in Ubel Blatt).
Both series sport a badass male lead who happens to look like a child and thus being underestimated a lot. If you liked the guy in one series, the other should prove interesting. Keep in mind that both series have some mature content (Ubel Blatt probably has more of it than Gun x Clover, but at lest the story is more coherent).
