Aya, Yoji, Ken, and Omi are the four young men who comprise Weiss Kruez (WK), an assassin group who eliminates certain menaces to society. Each member has his own trademark fighting style. Aya is adept at fighting with a katana, Yoji has mastered the art of strangulation via strings, Ken is lethal with his metal claws, while Omi specializes in a wide array of projectiles. Under the command of a mysterious man known only as "Persia", the WK is dispatched to take care of drug rings, terrorist factions, and the like. But as things go along, they discover that most, if not all, the bad elements they have dealt with are somehow connected to the Takatori family. The Takatori family is rich, powerful, and influential. It seems if the problem is to be nipped in the bud, the WK would have to put an end to one of Japan's most prominent clans.

Story: 4 (Go go Weis Kreuz Rangers!)
Art: 2 (Even Dragon Ball looks better than this)
Sound: 5 (people screaming & tires screeching makes me RAGE)
Character: 3 (The boy band heroes and ignorant girls)
Enjoyment: 2 (KEN... RAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!)
Overall: 16/50 = 3.2 (Funny for the wrong reasons)

Weiss Kreuz is one of those anime shows that you've feel you've seen before. And you're mostly right, the overall story has been done by every box-office smash, b-movie, independent movie, anime, TV show, and even children's programming. But what this resembles most of all is some "mature-ish" version of Power Rangers. Four main characters that specialize in their own fighting read more

Story: 4/10
I gotta admit, I was intrigued by this anime because (like any girl) I'm a sucker for the pretty boys, but pretty boys don't make good plots. Too predictable, too "safe" and definately TOO stupid. I can't stand an anime I can easily predict and doesn't have enough substance to keep me interested. Sadly this anime lacked all of the above and more.

Art: 5/10
The art wasn't TERRIBLE but it wasn't the BEST either, it was more average than anything. The facial expression lacked emotion, the women were poorly drawn (how any of them fell for those women is beyond me) and it was just read more

Anime: Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpucho: Tou Dai Ni Maku
More specifically, if you were intrigued by the concept of the Twelve Heavenly Generals in the Martial Fist arc, then you may enjoy the similar group, Weiβ. Both are underground assassin teams that target criminals who escaped the justice of civil law. There's also the same angst-ridden back stories to some of the characters.

And if the supernatural element of "Tokyo Majin" excites you, then check out the antagonist group to Weiβ (White), Schwarz (Black) whose members have ESP powers and work in the shadows.

Anime: Night Head Genesis
At the very beginning Night Head Genesis reminded me so much of Weiß kreuz! They share the same ambience, melodrama, and even the artwork styles are similar (although Genesis is much more consistent than poor Weiß).

While there are no assassins in Night Head Genesis, both anime do revolve around unique sets of people and professional organizations; for instance, Arc is comparable to Eszett. The plot is carried out in much the same way as the Missions of Weiß - that is to say, with story arcs that are all connected by an overall scheme in the end. The arcs in Genesis  read more

Anime: Ginyuu Mokushiroku Meine Liebe
It is difficult to pin down exactly what makes Weiss Kreuz and Meine Liebe so similar since one deals with hitmen in the modern world while the other takes place in a academy in a vaguely historical setting but they share a certain atmosphere. The almost all male ensemble that has to interact and cooperate in close quarters as well as the contrasting personalities add an air of drama, the characters' backgrounds that are brought to weight on the narrative and the overall feeling make these titles reminiscent of each other. Those who were able to turn a blind eye to the flaws of one  read more

Anime: Gensoumaden Saiyuuki
their characters are alike... for example aya (from WK) is quiet type like Sanzo (from Saiyuki),, Yogi (from WK) is a playboy type like Gojyo (from Saiyuki),, Omi (from WK) is the childish like Son Goku (saiyuki),, and of course Ken (from WK) is the cool type like Hakkai (from Saiyuki)......
