User Recommendations

Both are moody and very violent post-apocalyptic works set in a ruined Kanto province. Most characters in both are utterly depraved and warped monsters hedonistically seeking to kill and satiate their base desires (often both at the same time); while the characters who aren't are, while not lily-white themselves, rather sympathetic antiheroes trying to eek out a living amongst the hell around them. Finally both works have their titular characters at the center of the ruined world, seldom seen but always spoken about with fear. The works do have their differences though, with Akira being set in a cyberpunk mega-city and Violence Jack in a Mad Max-style scavenger wasteland (note that Violence Jack predates Mad Max by several years).
After the Golden Age arc, Berserk becomes almost a carbon-copy of Violence Jack. Both Guts and Jack are nearly identical in behavior and personality (Guts just having a prosthesis and a bigger blade to differentiate himself from Jack), and both series involve their respective protagonist journeying through a post-cataclysmic land fighting warlords and monsters (who are often enough one and the same in both).
Legend of the Super-beast and Violence Jack share an awful-lot in common. both have an amnesiac protagonist with superhuman strength who fight against evil thugs, rapists, criminals, etc. And both are set in a bleak and deserted wasteland. Legend of the Super-beast is pretty much what would happen if Toshio Maeda did his own version of Violence Jack.
