Synopsis

Aruka is an assassin for the Clan of the Sword. She's on a journey to find the woman Jin Valel, who killed her master Hon. Jin is a demon-like woman who controls the Energy of Chaos and kills without feeling—not unlike how Aruka has learned to kill in her work as an assassin. On her journey, Aruka encounters three strange women, each a great warrior in her own right and grapples with her slain master's wish that she leave the life of an assassin behind.

An anime adaptation of the Korean MMORPG, Blade and Soul.

At first, this series seemed to be extremely intriguing. I liked the premise of the story, and the art/animation style is gorgeous. But unfortunately, for a majority of the series, that's the only thing that I could say positive.

Alka is an assassin for the Clan of the Sword. She's on a journey to find Jin Varrel, who killed her master Hon. Jin is a demon-like woman who controls the Energy of Chaos and kills without feeling, which is similar to how Alka has learned to kill in her work as an assassin. On her journey, Alka meets three gorgeous, strange women, each a great warrior read more

The anime has supernatural dark theme and mainly focuses on woman with a little fanservice here and there. The protagonist is a woman named Aruka who is seeking revenge against Jin Valel the one that killed her master, while being haunted by bounty hunters at the same time.
Plot (3/10): it was kind of disappointing that blade and soul didn't really have a solid plot, the episodes aren't connected to each other whatsoever, each one has its own events, characters and places, I found it to be very boring actually... I wouldn't recommend this anime if you're a fan of big/complicated plots.
characters (4/10) : since females read more

Recommendations

Similarities:

Both have girls who can fight really well.

Both have the same main girl who is stoic but really deadly.

Dissimilarities:
One has an extra romance genre, while the other has martial arts.
Both female leads are the strong and quite type. Both also have a lot of action and dark flashbacks/back-stories in them.
