Take 1 part Vash, 2 parts Wolfwood, and 6 parts short unattractive mega-pervert. Place in a desert oven set to 125° for 17-18 years and you get Kanta "Sunabouzu" Mizuno. Serve with large helpings of big bounties, boisterous badasses, and buxom babes and you get 24 episodes of action packed sexually frustrated hilarity known simply as "Desert Punk"
Both animes have:
- Post apocalyptic future desert setting
- Silly main characters who are very good at what they do when they get serious
- Lots of very great gunfighting scenes
- Very funny comedic elements sewn into each episode
- Episodic format that weaves and builds up to the main plot
- Good plots that are more complex than first meets the eye
- Both have very good and polished english dubs (Usually i do subs but I'd HIGHLY recommend both in english for the best comedic elements to shine)
- Desert Punk is generally a more raunchy show and the characters are far more merciless. The MC of Desert Punk emphasizes that you need to be merciless in their world while Trigun's MC emphasizes pacifism.
- Trigun's MC has more of a complex background read more
Both are in this type of desert world, and both main characters travel around. From each episode there's a new story. Both series have guns in them and are action packed. Also the main characters are very comedic.
The two take place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where the action scenes consist of amazing gun fights. If you liked Lawrence D. Wolfwood then you may like the Punk but be warned, he is a little more merciless than Wolfwood.
*Both protagonists in the series carries a gun and is a proud fighter
*Contains comic relief and crude humor
*Contains similar setting of the desert/wasteland like theme
*Similar personality and style of the main protagonists
Both series a good watch :)
Both anime have the same post-apocalyptic desert setting. They also consist of a goofy, comedic, and nearly unbeatable main character. The only exception is Desert Punk doesn't have a immense background as Vash does. But other than that both anime are pretty much the same.
Both are set in a post apocalyptic desert setting with horny, gun wielding juggernauts as their protagonists that are constantly down on their luck. Though both share similar elements they both end up going in different directions. Trigun tries to preach pacifism and shows the difficulties that come with it while Sunabouzu supports selfish mercilessness and the type of person that that makes you.
Desert based background, with a high intelligence gun wielder. The protagonists are scary accurate, with a strategy already in play before the battle starts and before the watcher realizes. Strong female characters.
This anime is totally kick ass! Both Spike, and Kanta are really kick ass with their jobs. One is a merc, the other is a bounty hunter? The difference is comedy! If you like action series that just totally kick ass...Watch DP.
Watching these two series will feel like taking on an adventurous trip. In essence, they both chronicles the stories of a main male protagonist who is known for hunting various beings across their perspective worlds. The one thing they both have a weakness and love for is - women.
Throughout their adventure, they meet other characters that influences their lives in various ways. Yet on many said occasions, there are moments when our adventurers find their lives in danger.
Both series also takes place in a futuristic setting.
Kanta aka the Desert Punk and Yabuki Joe (especially in the beginning) have a lot of similarities. They are both selfish/self-absorbed. They both live in poor conditions but still manage to get by quite well. And they both have a young kid/s depending on them. And finally they are both naturally talented and skilled and fighting/tactics in the respective fields.
If you enjoyed one series because of the main character then I'd say you'd probably like the other. However their character development towards the end goes in opposite directions.
The feelings that you get in air gear and desert punk are very similiar .
The settings are very different yet they both have the same awesome feelings that you get from watching a good/funny anime with rivarly and awesome moves , aww
its hard to compare them both but just try watching this and i know ull get the same feelings
Met through television, a music channel xD he resolved to pass the time along with the Afro Samurai, Sunabouzu is great for anyone who loves good old action! His story is very good as well as the characters, in which each brand with your way, which can be corny and even ridiculous depending on what is seen: 3 One of the remarkable things this anime would be taken in earnest comedy, creating a great show of bullets and ass off xD
Kanta and Panty/Stocking share a lot of the same personality traits as in they're both foul mouthed, cruel, irresponsible, and selfish which I think makes their comedy similar. Also, Kanta is about as much a "hero" as Panty/Stocking are "angels". ;)
You like the ribald and vulgar humor in one of the anime? Than maybe the other one is something for you too!
The main charaters in both anime are sexual frustrated boys, that are running after some tits and have to endure hardship while doing so. Otherwise they are quite different. Prison School has a school setting while Desert Punk is more on the action side. But if you like this kind of humor both anime will make you laugh for sure.
Both series deal with life in an unforgiving Desert. With people who only care about themselves, and where the hero of the story isn't really a hero, but one who is just trying to surivive in an unforgiving enviornment.
Both have young main characters with younger apprentices, both are placed in postapocalyptic world, both have forbidden technology that has been forgotten over the year, although Desert Punk is exquisite and The third is just good.
Both shows are about bounty hunters and the main character is a skilled bad-ass who ends up in a war between two associations (govt power). They also have a rushed out twist ending and many things left are unexplained.
Those reserved, uptight Japanese folk need to learn how to insert lots of swearing, vulgarity and sex jokes into their cartoons. But until then, there's always the witty English dub rewriting teams who make it their duty to turn once dull, lifeless exchanges into laugh out loud material.
Desert Punk Example:
Junko: "...Over time, we've (women) learned to use every accessory we have as weapons."
Punk: "Including birth control?"
Junko: "Well, I've always found the best 'birth control' to be to simply point at it and laugh, little guy."
*two fisherman sit by a river*
Man #1: My rod hasn't moved all day.
Man #2: It will now!
*naked elf floats down the river, tied to a log*
(...In case you're wondering, these anime are linked by witty banter present in the English dub versions. DON'T WATCH THEM IN JAPANESE!!!) read more
Both series have post apocalyptic setting, but I don't think this counts since apocalyptic Miami looks just like normal Miami. Both series are really funny and have many reference to Hollywood movies and animes. Both series start out as light comedy but the latter episodes end up with serious tone due to the plots become more complex.
