The world has become a desolate, lawless land where bandits roam free, innocent people suffer and demons lurk around every corner. Sona Yuki is traveling with his family when they are attacked by bandits and his entire family is murdered and he is left with a snake mark on his hand. As he is about to die, a women comes up to him and gives him an option: continue to live in this harsh environment or die peacefully now. Yuki chooses life and Garami, the woman, gives him a second chance at life in exchange for his servitude. Garami is a weapons merchant and a gun for hire that travels from town to town for clients. Yuki sees how brutal and unforgiving this world can truly be.

Mangaka and Anime artists love to play mix-and-match with Technology and magic. Hot Springs and swimsuits find their way into every Shounen anime, because everyone loves watching female characters in convenient coincidences; Japanese culture manage to ingrain themselves right in the midst of a European Fantasy World; Ninjas live in a modern world of electricity and ninja magic skills, but apparently nobody has heard of cars or gunpowder.

robot/zombie horse. West. Main characters similar design. Traveling. Same genres.
Similar atmosphere in many ways. Both are grotesque and the fight scenes have similar pacing, that is to say good pacing. The fight scenes also have an emphasis on weapons. The plots are also similar in a basic way, with a guy looking for someone, which makes for good episodic storytelling. The biggest difference is that there is hardly any comedy in kiba no tabishounin, but i often would like to read things with similar atmosphere and overall quality.
