If you're looking for anime similar to Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade, you might like these titles.
A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs. Is he an evil genius, or could he signal the beginning of a new age in the relationship between man and machine?
Ghost in the Shell is a sophisticated anime. It has no time for comedy, and devotes itself to a sci-fi based drama which is intelligent, action packed, and has depth. If you enjoy the darker and more intelligent themes of Jin Roh, then I think you'd enjoy Ghost in the Shell.
So you like heavy stories for a movie? Start up with Ghost in the Shell, both movies are quite heavy on the plot, just like Jin-Roh
I see a similarity both in the dark atmosphere and beautifully animated action scenes, and in that the two protagonists Fuse and Kusanagi who both struggle with their identities.
GitS and Jin-Roh - both of them can be described with several words - hard, heavy and beautiful.
While Jin-Roh takes place in a parallel mid-20th Japan and GiTS in a cyberpunk future they share the same dystopian feel and sombre tone, which is not too surprising considering Mamoru Oshii was heavily involved in making them.
If it's the general feel of the movie you're after, not the setting, do yourself a favour and check out the other one.
Jin-Roh and GitS share a similar feel. When you watch both of these, the animation style and dreary setting make them feel the same. Both movies go way too quickly and have a deep storyline. They are classic animes and if you liked one then don't put the other aside, watch it asap.
Both Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade and Ghost in the Shell share a bleak and somewhat gloomy future setting, where a protagonist who doesn't fit in with regular society works with a secret government-sponsored group in order to combat the forces of evil that plague this dark world.
Along the way, some hard choices must be made. If you like your anime stories to be more complex and to be more serious and intense in theme, then I think you would enjoy either of these titles.
Both are among the bst anime movies ever made. Both have dark heavy stories. Both are deeper than your generic ultraviolent anime.
I can' argue with these two at all, as they are both the type to mess with your minds, they are based off of soldiers in an attempt to face themselves and their enemies.
Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.
To put it bluntly: you will enjoy Akira (if you haven't seen it already) if you enjoyed Jin-Roh for its violence and animation qualities.
If you liked the action and darkness of Jin Roh, you'll prolly enjoy the same thing in Akira. There's also a *little* bit of comedy, but these two films share a similar feeling (to me, it seems that way).
Both of these movies are dark and gritty, with powerful tragedies happening at various times. Jin Roh has more of a twist than Akira does, yet both have traumatized main characters.
Both movies (Akira and Jin-Roh) involve a main character that gets traumatized. They both have gore and can leave you with an unsettling feeling. Jin-Roh was a bit darker, but they both have some action. I didn't particularly like either one (Akira was a bit better), but others really like both these movies.
Jin-Roh and Akira can claim an equally powerful effect on a viewer regardless of genre. This is largely due to the gritty and realistic nature of the two stories and the exploration of the capabilities of mankind and violence in both. If you were captivated by one, you will surely be as intrigued by the other.
Jin-Roh and Akira also share that similar feel. Both of these movies deal with a human gone out of control. Emotional trauma and corruption seep into the story. They are quick pace animes filled with much suspense. These legendary movies are not legend for no reason. If you could handle one then I dare you to watch the other.
If you watched and enjoyed 1 out of the both you will enjoy the other. Since they both share some qualities like good animation,tragedies and etc.
In an experimental city of despair and carnage, ORGANO will do anything necessary to gain power and wealth. Unfortunately for one underground boxer who was mutilated, a rogue doctor has given him what ORGANO specializes in and he despises: Texhnolyze body parts. Will these cybernetic appendages help exact his revenge upon the one who made him this way?
These two are surely toprecs as both Jin-Roh and Texhnolyze are hard to follow stories about the violent human nature and it's quest for power. Also the animeation sees very simular and you have the same dark and mysterious feeling in both animes.
The message to both anime is relatively clear: no matter how much the glories of technology and society may mask them, there will always be a savage and bestial side to humankind that will can never be stripped away. As well as this, both anime carry a complicated plotline, brutal imagery, and a decidedly bleak ending. If you enjoy watching science fiction that delves into an uglier side of human nature and don't mind a slow moving plot, then either one should be well worth the watch.
Jin Roh and Tehxnolyze share the same civil war ambiance. Jin Roh is much shorter and is centered on two characters, whereas Tehxnolyze is more focused on the story and revolves around many characters and different parties. Despite these differences, both anime really give a similar feeling and if you liked one, you'll like the other.
These two anime productions are very similar, both in feel and certain plot elements. Both productions revolve around a socially dysfunctional man, and his relationship with a woman who is important to multiple waring factions. Both are grimy and dark, with political undertones, and can definitely be confusing. If you liked either the other is worth checking out.
Himura Kenshin was a boy orphaned by the murder of his parents. Now he is the Hitokiri Battousai, the most feared and skilled killer in 19th century Japan. In the midst of a blood bath, he meets the love of his life, Tomoe. Will he continue to fight his enemies in a killing rage or will she sheath his bloodstained sword?
Like Jin-Roh, Rurouni Kenshin is another dark and depressing story, lined with the themes of trust and betrayal. They also have plenty of good violence and action. If you liked one of these, you will probably like the other.
What Jin Roh and Kenshin - Tsuiokuhen share is the same dark, yet realistic atmosphere, and also intensive romance, shocking drama and much bloody action. Without doubt, these share much and one who watches one of them will like the other.
Both are based on true events within different periods of history, staying true to the concept of war and the effect it can have on both sides of the conflict. You can draw similarities in the male leads, not initially likeable characters largely due to their role in battle. The beauty in both is the evolving nature of the leads, best observed in their developed relationships and the way this impacts on their being. Both explore this in beautiful detail and are to be viewed by someone with an appreciation of the realities of inner and outer turmoil.
It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it. This series follows Public Peace Section 9, a government organization that plays behind the scenes to stop the worst of these criminals. Join Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team as they take you through an incredibly vivid world filled with plots of such depth and intrigue as is seldom seen.
Both GITS:SAC and Jin-Roh let their cyberpunk roots hang out with both considering technology's effect on society and government. While Jin-Roh has a decidely more somber tone they both can at times be very grim.
Both Jin-Roh and GitS:SAC thrust their viewers into the midst of a fast-paced, and at times disorienting, world of futuristic politics and counter-terrorism. Viewers who enjoy unlocking the dense intellectualism of either show, and appreciate the heart-pounding action that serves to break up what would otherwise be recondite, will surely enjoy the other.
Aside from the superficial similarities (which might be lumped into the category of 'futuristic law enforcement), both GITS: SAC and Jin Roh share some similar themes. They take a look not only into the nature of society, but also at what it means to be human.
In a research outpost in Turkey, an ancient relic known as Noah’s Ark has been discovered, and ARCAM, the world’s most secret organization in charge of keeping world order, must protect the ark from the deranged forces of the US Machine Corps. Yu Ominae, ARCAM’S #1 Spriggan, is an elite secret operative with one mission: Stop the key to NOAH’S ARK from being used by Colonel Mac Dougall, a cybernetically enhanced child with psychokinetic powers. Noah will be your grave!
There are strong themes of military power and terrorist activities in both Jin-Roh and Spriggan, as well as great action and violence. If you enjoyed one of them, you will also like the other.
Though Jin-Roh is a lot deeper in the plot and is more slow-paced, the reason i recommend these is that the gunplay reminds me of the other movie, it's really ver simular at the start, than each evolves to it's own different ending.
With their father serving overseas in the Navy towards the end of the World War 2, Seita and his younger sister Setsuko are living as normally as they can. One day during a firebomb raid on the city their mother suffers fatal wounds and the two siblings' lives are turned upside down as they go to live with a relative. After suffering the cruel treatment of their aunt, who makes it clear that their very presence is a nuisance, Seita and Setsuko decide to leave and go to live in an abandoned bomb shelter. With no one else to rely on, Seita and Setsuko try their hardest to live from day to day. Though when food becomes ever more scarce and no one is willing to sell what little provisions they have, life for the pair is increasingly difficult. Then when Setsuko falls ill, Seita begins to realize just how fragile life is...
While not necessarily similar in content, they are both animated in a way that makes you think of listening to a story your grandparents told you about when you were younger. Visually well executed, and both extremely well written. Gives a great glimpse into the past.
A dark and bleak look at a world changed by war. If that is a setting that intrigues you, then you will find both Grave of the Fireflies and Jin Roh fit the bill. Both stories feature a main character who strives to play the hero who is protecting the weak, and both stories explore situations where the protagonist cannot fulfill his desire to save everyone from the evils of the world.
If you want to check out a deeper, more realistic story, one where the world does not conform always to a happily-ever-after standard, check out either one of these titles.
In the time of the Vietnam War, an American military base in Japan is plagued with a rash of killings whose assailant is unknown. Enter Saya, a mysterious young woman who happens to be the last of the vampire race, and has been charged by her government agency employer to investigate the sinister killings. With demons and creatures abounding, Saya must infiltrate a school to put a stop to the bloodshed -- unless the monsters get to her first...
Not really that much similarty in topic between jinroh and blood, but you just cant get enough of the organic/dark atmosphere provided by both. Both also suffer from the trajick shortfall of being too short to fully explore what sould be really really richly rewarding worlds (blood more so for shortness, but oh well) but if this did not bother you then you are goood to go. The secret society thing that is operatingin these really works for me, so there you go.
These are very dark anime with a protagonist who is a monster (one literally, one metaphorically) and masquerades as a human being.
There are a few but very well-made action scenes. Blood has better visuals but Jin-Roh is superiour in its storytelling.
What starts as a simple interview of a legendary actress becomes a journey through the history of Japan. But this is no ordinary lesson; from the perspective of this actress, we learn of the beauty and sadness of love, the pain and regret and joy of the Japanese people and their film, through this film: Millennium Actress.
Though the treatment of the story and feel of Jin Roh and Millennium Actress are rather different, both focus around a fragile relationship between male and female leads, and have a strong revolutionary undercurrent. Also despite being set in modern worlds, feature strong metaphorical and reality bending narratives, if you enjoy the style of one the other should appeal too.
Both films have historical settings and have engaging plots. If you feel like watching something with much more substance than most anime, then these films are for you.
When popular pop idol Mima decided to retire from her group, Cham, and become an actress, she had no idea that one person's obsession would soon spiral out of control. With death threats, letter bombs and a forged website which details her every move, Mima finds herself slowly becoming trapped in a nightmare she can't seem to escape. With murders piling up and her mental state slowly degrading, can she discover who the culprit is, before she becomes the next victim?
Both Perfect Blue and Jin-Roh didn't quite graps my attention. But i suppose the most important reason i'm recommending it, is because both felt like they could be real movies instead of anime, they have a heavy plot without any fiction in them.
Both films are very plot heavy and can be violent at times. Watching them makes you feel as if you are watching something different from anything you've seen before. If you feel like watching something with much more substance than most anime, then these films are for you.
