If you're looking for anime similar to Wolf's Rain, you might like these titles.
In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".
Like Wolf's Rain, Ergo Proxy is also deeply psychological and self-involving. If you want a silly action series there is no need to watch this, please go and watch Naruto, Bleach or whatever else you want. But if you want to enjoy some time thinking and developing your comprehension about the world we live in, Ergo Proxy is definitely the best choice.
What first catches the eye in Wolf's Rain and Ergo Proxy is the wonderfully-drawn landscape. Both placed in the future, they explore the initiatic journey of a group of people - a journey to find themselves, in a world that no longer has any use for their kind. Kindred in both design and flow, these anime go well together because of the similarities in storyline, and because of the dreamy feeling that they leave behind.
Both Ergo Proxy and Wolf's Rain are apocalyptic shows that take place in a post-apocalyptic setting. Also both of them have some similar elements like going on a journey, domes or mysterious beings (proxies in EP and nobles in WR). The resemblance between these two shows is quite big, but it doesn't mean that you will definitely like one if you liked the other; yet you should give them a try.
Both of these shows were very dark in atmosphere and were slower in pace. While their plots are dissimilar, they each took place in a futuristc setting and focused on a group of characters on a journey to discover certain truths. These two shows also had some of the most beautiful art I've seen in an anime. I'll suggest to give these a watch if you like sci fi/fastasy stories that are more character driven.
In both series the heroes struggle to find a meaning in their existence in an apocalyptical world where they somehow do not belong. While Ergo Proxy is somewhat more dark, brutal and mysterious in its flashbacks and storylines, Wolf's Rain keeps more to a linear storytelling with successfully intervoven charakters. Still both of them share the same thoughful approach, leave room for evolving interpersonal relations but never lose their main focus on the determination and motivation of their individuals.
There are many of the same themes in both these animes. The question of exsistance, for example, is very much a part of both. The protagonists of both are in a quest to find themselves. But not just themselves but also to find the reason for the world around them.
These series each have a lot to do with mystery and philosophical questions. While striving for existence, characters in each story meet many questions about the first origin and their futures.
Both Wolf's Rain and Ergo Proxy start off with a very similar vibe. Dark, mature animes, set in dystopian societies inside of bubbled cities. The storylines branch out from there, but involved the character traveling across barren landscapes.
Ergo Proxy and Wolf's rain may seem to be different and in fact they are! Their setting is completely unrelated and the style also seems to be very different. But this is all at face value in reality they are both complex shows regarding the meaning of life and its many subcategories. If you've enjoyed the subtleness and depth of one you'll certainly enjoy the other.
Both take place in a bleak world that's coming to an end. They both have a diffrent but dark feel to them. both animes have people that mainly live in domed cities. Both also touch on people living a lie.
Wolf's Rain is more melancholy, depressing, and gruesome.
Ergo Proxy is more interesting, psychological, mind rape.
Both share a stark post-apocalyptic setting, especially in terms of the background art and the sense that the world has forgotten what happened. The storylines are not that comparable but the shows share similar atmospheres more often than not.
Each story represents journeying through a post-apocalyptic world and contains a certain sense of loss associated with it. Wolf's Rain strikes me as edging forward as the more optimistic of the two by virtue of the relationships formed and the sense of hope during the journey, feelings of warmth and the potential for salvation. Ergo Proxy felt darker and more hopeless - the emptiness of the world, the isolation of the characters felt more pronounced. I like them both, but felt Ergo Proxy more strongly - the four recap episoes in the middle of the Wolf's Rain also cause me to find greater flaw in that series, although this should not undermine the whole.
Both have a similar feel. Each has a plot that takes a while to set up, a bunch of convoluted details, some metaphorical nonsense, and a steady pace.
Some things i think these series have in common:
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...
Wolf's Rain and Witch Hunter Robin are both excellent series in which the story is presented in a dark setting. Characters are both developed and added slowly as you progress through the series. Each contain extensive action scenes and awesome music to go along with it.
Both of these series deal with the supernatural or mystical things in general. I believe if you liked one you would like the other because they both have very dark atmospheres, the animation styles are very similair, but most of all it is the mystery driven plots thart make these series' a good combo.
Whilst you can say that neither the plot from Whr or Wolfs Rain are similar, I would still recommend one or the other to someone who has seen either series. Captivating plots, excellent soundtracks as well as a fantastic art style rate these both highly in my opinion. And I'm pretty certain if you loved one for one of those reasons, you'd love the other.
Wolf's rain boasts a similar animation style to WHR... dark and fluid. It also has the same beautiful feel to it. Get this series if you want a dark, beautiful one.
Both WHR and Wolf's Rain have a similar style, and a dark presentation that concentrates on the development of the main characters. They are both about exterminating a species; one series wants to eliminate witches and the other wants to eliminate wolves.
Wolf's Rain and Witch Hunter Robin are drawn in the same adult style, so the animation is very alike. There's also a dark gloomy atmosphere in both anime because they focus a lot of feelings like hope, despair and survival. This makes the buildup of the plots somewhat similar and definitely makes Witch Hunter and Wolf's Rain a good match for each other.
These two series share all of the less tangible qualities - vastly different plots and settings, but a similar atmosphere, style of animation, level of maturity and even musical similarities.
Both of these anime have the same melancoly feel to them. Both of the worlds depicted are dark and somewhat bleak, with the characters searching for a place to belong.
If you like an anime that tries to make you think, with likable characters, and a shady look at the Earth's future, this anime is for you.
They aired alongside each other on [adult swim]. Both have great, dark atmospheres. They both are dramas. Both were licensed by Bandai and have many of the same voice actors. Quent, a major character in Wolf's Rain, hunts wolves. Much like how the STN-J in Witch Hunter Robin hunt witches. They both have these plotlines where the character is on the run, I'd say.
Both have interesting characters, supernatural elements, a very depressing atomosphere in which you always gain, but then lose hope, and both were shown at the same time on Adult Swim.
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?
^_^ if you've seen these you will know what im talking about, A strange future ruled by warring organizations, Wolf’s rain it’s the nobles, Texhnolize it’s the mob like organizations. the small groups of main characters in both seem to be the outcasts that change things. And things that happen might not always be in the um… norm..
The future is past and what we've got in the end isn't some dreamsociety, but the ruins of a dream, barely worth living in. That seems to be the setting of both Wolf's Rain and Texhnolyze. In Texnolyze this feeling has crept into the peolple too, Wolf's Rain is lighter but still gloomy. The art is great and serves it's purpose: it expresses the overall feel of the series. Both stories are mysterious and dark. As a warning to the watchers of Wolf's Rain: Texnolyze is GREAT, but very very and I mean very dark and won't give much ready to accept, your brains are going to be twisted, squeezed and walked over, so enjoy! ^_^
Remarkable similarities will strike you watching either Texhnolyze or Wolfs Rain. "Warring" factions and an outcast group thrown into the middle of it all. Both series share a dark theme, Texhnolyze being the moodier of the two. Extremely imaginative storylines are compelling with both series and well worth a look
Wolf's Rain and Texhnolyze, despite the differences in casts, have rather similar storylines. Both anime follow the actions taken by their characters in dark, gloomy worlds that are approaching their end. If you thought one was good, you should certainly give the other a go.
Texhnolyze and Wolf's Rain share similarities in setting and overall concept. Both are set in worlds which are corrupt, poverty-stricken, have ruling hierarchies and individual factions. The protagonist(s) in each series must adapt to such places where such groups reside in order to succeed in their own personal gain, whilst struggling in a dying world. Both are somewhat gloomy, yet are intriguing to view.
Technolyze and Wolf's Rain both have many nice, slow moments, allowing the viewer to think about the issues that come forth in each episode. Texhnolyze is more focused on people's emotions, while Wolf's Rain is more focused on mystery, but they both contain the necessary elements to make a good, solid story.
These two shows are quite similar to each other in terms of the years that they were aired, the animation an character design being all gorgeous and eye-popping in their unique ways and the overall dark tone these two shows bear. The one thing that makes it different are the themes. Wolf's Rain is all about spirituality, specifically searching for paradise, and Texhnolyze is about technology and the human soul. Yet, as I said, both of them carry a somber tone to the overall show, but Texhnolyze is much more depressing.
Deep plot, post-apocalyptic doom, unique ideas, and heart wrenching character development litter these two titles. They share similar loner protagonists, a path guiding female lead, and strong themes of friendship, loss, and duty. If you liked either of these I would highly recommend the other.
Atmosphere and animation style line up pretty well. Wolf's Rain is somewhat convoluted, and wolf/human dynamic is odd. Plotwise, both feature people trying to move forward in hopeless situations.
With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?
If you enjoyed the art and all the wolves in Wolf's Rain, Mononoke Hime is something for you. Wolf's Rain and Mononoke Hime isn't really alike but Mononoke Hime got the beautiful art and wolves all over ^^
Normally I don't make recommendations based on animation, but this time it's my main reason for recommending Princess Mononoke and Wolf's Rain. I do feel if you liked one you'd like the other, especially since they both have deep plots, as well.
Both stories leave us a feeling of responsibility towards the Earth. Eventhough one is a movie and the other is an anime series, they both enhance our concience towards our planet. If you felt this way with one of them, you'll surely be trapped by the other!
Both series are about the conflicts between the lives of wild wolves and ignorant, and often greedy, humans. These conflicts and differences between the two species inevitably result in chaos and destruction.
Both are dark anime with white wolves as characters in them, both are fantasy, and both have similiar animation styles.
To be honest the two things that these two shows have most in common is their lovely animation with rich detailed worlds and backgrounds. If you love them, that's for you. Though the shows are VERY different in plot and time setting they are both deep and enjoyable narratives.
They are both fantasy action-adventure stories with a similar protagonist. They both involve wolves and the threat of humanity upon nature.
Both have a similar vibe, plus wolves. Beautiful artwork and action packed story are prevalent in both as well.
Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?
What do Wolf's Rain and Cowboy Bebop have in common? Not much, really -- though the two share excellent stories and awesome animation, they are not of the same genre, not by a longshot. Wolf's Rain lacks the lightheartedness that could be found in some episodes of Cowboy Bebop, but packs a punch with its powerful story.
It's hard to exactly specify what these two shows have in common. If you ask me, I say that it's the style, the feeling that they give and maybe the story a little bit. If you haven't watched Cowboy Bebop yet and you did like Wolf's Rain, you should watch it right away, because you're probably going to love it.
Now I know that this doesnt make all that much sense but the feeling you get when a action filled moment hits or a deep dramatic shock wraps aroung you is next to none in both of these amazing shows. trust me.
This two shows have some kind similiar charm. Both give us vision of posible future for world and humans. They leave spectator with many teasers and melancholy.
Tired of hearing music only in the OP and ED of an anime and searching for something with good music throughout the episodes? Pick either of these and enjoy.
What can I say? I'm a sucker for 90's style animation. Wolf Rain has more continuous plot, but it also feels kinda bogged down.
They are both science-fiction adventure/action stories with tragic endings. While Wolf's Rain explictly takes place at the end of the world, Cowboy Bebop gives off a feeling that the viewer is witnessing the end of an era.
In the world of Prestal, Noble men perform noble deeds for noble purposes. All of this is performed under the careful gaze of the Guild, a race apart who live in cities in the sky. We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.
Again whilst neither plot of Last Exile or Wolfs Rain is similar, it's the other elements that would draw you to watching one or the other of these shows. The characters, music, storylines as well as art make them both appealing to fans of either show. I'm confident you'd like them both.
While Last Exile has characters that are a bit easier to identify with than Wolf's Rain's wolves, there are no problems in developing a connection with the principals of either series. Thus, when they go through their trials and tribulations in an attempt to grasp their dreams, the viewer is right there with them -- oh, and they both have awesome, awesome art.
Both Last Exile and Wolf's Rain have the same sort of weird flying ships and a mysterious girl who is the key to some sort of secret. Most remarkably, the Guild in Last Exile gives a similar feeling to the Nobles from Wolfs Rain. I might have missed something, so check it out yourself.
Both of these anime feature a a group of people searching for some ancient legend, and a young girl is the key. Both anime also feature an opposing force that attemps to reroute the group at every turn. While the cats are very different, both anime are beautifully animated and have enjoyable soundtracks.
Two siblings, Kiyoko and Tatsuya, live in a future reshaped by a terrorist attack known only as "Twin X". In this terrible new world, advanced technology such as computers and radios no longer function and even the very sky has become something terrifyingly alien. With the siblings' mother dead, they are hunted by loan sharks who want recompense for her debt as well as a mysterious Countess who wants them for her own reasons. Even worse, they are also coveted by their father, the terrorist who caused the "Twin X", Gilgamesh!
In the ruins of the dying world people (or wolves) are searching for their place. Both of these are dark animes which are not especially intelligent. I'm not saying that these don't require thinking, just that your brain will not turn into a bloody (and perhaps extatic?) moss while watching these. Wolf's rain is far more beautiful than the ugly Gilgamesh and as it is better in almost every point. Still, I know that there are people liking Gilgamesh and these two series have much in common, so if you've watched Wolf's Rain might Gilgamesh still be worth of try. And to all Gilgamesh watchers: go and watch Wolf's Rain, ok?
Wolf's Rain and Gilgamesh are both aimed at a more mature audience; they are similar artistically have a realistic style. If you are looking for a realistic and mature anime check both of these out.
Firstly, the stories of Gilgamesh and Wolf's Rain both develop in a dark, post-apocalyptic future where things turn out to be not what they look like.
Secondly, both series are concentrated a lot on the personal development of the characters and their relationships with each other; and as the stories progress more and more of the characters' pasts and motives are revealed.
One more similar thing is the drawing/animation style; it is realistic with beautiful yet subdued colours.
If the words "dark", "post-apocalyptic" and "character development" send a chill down your spine, you should give both of these anime a try!
If you enjoy anime with high sentimental (and I am not talking about romance) content, with episodes full of tension and emotions, dark conflicts and some kind of complot, you will love the final in this both series.
Gilgamesh and Wolf's rain have serious questions about identity and the human race. I recomend both if you feel like thinking about life and not only fantasy issues.
Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.
Both animes are about a journey which had been started in order to findthe place where the main characters can live peacefully. Next similarity can be this, that i both shows the main characters are wolfs. If you like this kind of anime - with slow action and plot filled with bystanders - you simply have to watch what I recommend.
This will seem like an odd pairing, but hear me out. If the part that you liked in one show was watching a human with wolf mannerisms, then by all means, watch the other show as well! The moods, settings, and so forth are quite different, but the same animal traits shine through in both series.
While both of these have wolves hiding in a human world both of these animes are also about creatures that feel lost and alone in the world they are now and wish to go back home and find a home with friends on their adventure. Both are great and amazing while Wolf's Rain is darker than Spice and Wolf both are a good watch
Similarities: wolves and a steady pace with slow character development. The rest is totally different. Wolf's Rain has a bunch more action and guns. Spice and Wolf has more flirting.
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 anime are directed by Tensai Okamura, this really shows in how both of the stories develop.
Darker than black and Wolf's rain have the same feeling. They are both situated in a much darker world than ours and there is little hope. Hei reminds me of Kiba sometimes although he is a bit more clumsy. I think if you liked the general atmosphere in one of these you will like the other as well.
it's made by the same company with music by Yoko Kanno and the whole vibe of the show is very similar but obviously the storyline is different. It is also dystopian/post-apocolyptic
To me, these two anime give me a similar vibe/feeling. They both have a dystopean-like setting, a new, different world with different rules, and beings who are feared from the general people, and live their lives in hiding among them. The main characters have both gone through a lot, and are the trigger of a plot that comes to rise through the series. This is just my personal opinion, but I feel like some who liked one series will probably like the other. Either way, they're both good series.
Hana was a student before she was a mother. She was bright and pretty, and her future held endless possibilities. Then she met a man, who turned out to be a wolf, and together they built a family. Hana loved her mate fiercely, but fate took him from her, leaving her alone with two unusual kids she didn’t know how to raise. Frightened of being discovered, Hana and her wolf children fled to the countryside to build a new life. Raising her little wild things was an adventure. It left Hana bruised, scratched, exhausted, and joyously overwhelmed as her pups grew stronger and wandered further every day. This is a mother’s journey. Teach your children to chase their dreams – and smile through the tears as they disappear into the world in search of who they will become. Hana wasn’t always a mother, but it was always what she was meant to be.
Both of these anime's have a very similar feel to them. There are moments of joy and fun but at the same time there is an underlying theme of sadness. The two also explore the idea that wolves are actually disguised as people. There are also some subtle environmental themes that are explored in both. If you liked Wolf children chances are you'll enjoy Wolf's Rain and vice versa.
It shows magical world through a wolfs eyes two very beautiful animes.If you love wolfs in anime like I do, must watch anime.
Both involve wolves disguised as people. And the bonds between characters are a vocal point in their respective stories.
If you love wolves, you will most likely enjoy both of these to some degree.
The stories end up very different, but the focus on tragedy and loss, and trying to fight through it is very similar!
