Gangsters, tough talk, guns and more guns. Gungrave, like Roberta's Blood takes a gritty appraoch where blood and betrayals are aplenty and the world is an unforgiving place to those who don't watch their backs. One thing to note about Gungrave is that it tacks on some science fiction while Black Lagoon remains firmly set in realism. The general gist, however, is very much the same.

Cowboy Bebop, like Roberta's Blood Trail, is set in the criminal underworld. It promises plenty of revenge stories, battle-hardened characters, and tragedy, along with the pretty glorified violence of course! Bebop will be slightly less bludgeoning fare and more sophisticated character development (especially where Spike is concerned), but for more tales of people lost in the limbo of criminal life, check out Bebop.

What does Black Lagoon OVA and Hellsing OVA have in common? Psycho characters, lots of action and over the top violence. If you liked one of those, you got to check out the other one.

P.S. Be sure to watch both seasons of Black Lagoon TV, before watching Black Lagoon OVA.
