Ensemble cast of criminals with great friendship, rivalries, and chemistry. Great action and humour. Each character has a vivid past and personality and makes the world feel big and full of potential stories to tell.

Both involve a mafia-like organisation: Bungou has the Port Mafia and Ramens has the Kakyuu Group and the Murder Inc Both have cool and badass characters

A bounty hunter and killer for a reason. It depends on you which you can believe. Both are jazzy, enjoyable, stylish action shows. Main characters knock down every dirty job coolly. The existence of companions is valuable. Spike and Banba have very similar looking and personalities. They're excellent regarding human nature. In other words, sharp-eyed. CB OP song and HTR ED song are the same genres. Literally jazz. The soundtrack also has eargasm as a whole. Because full of coolness. Speaking of story, CB is better. But HTR's story has interesting elements, too. I hope you'll like this baseball gem, space cowboy.

Both have similar moods, have both serious and goofy moments, and require a fairly large amount of suspension of disbelief to enjoy. Still, they are both enjoyable for what they are, and if you are in the mood for a neon lights downtown crime-solving (or committing) adventure, either one will suffice. They also both have pretty good jazzy soundtracks, including the openings.

Both shows tells the story of the main lead who suffered family issues and seek out by revenge plot with lots of stakes. Expect violence, cruel deaths, gangs, corruptions, assassins and dark organizations themes. Most times plot twists involves by outsmarting opponents. Most importantly, both shows have widely male casts and has slight BL vibes.

Run and kill enemies earnestly. Destroy their inherent concepts. A true hero doesn't exist. Both are kick-ass and very cool action series. No childish, no cringe. Every killer continues to fight until they bend the knee. Characters are unique. Lin is the male version of Revy. Their way of life and fighting style is badass. You'll be fascinated by them. Each OP songs are female vocal and rocky. Lyrics also expressing both shows well. I recommend listening fully. HTR is more mystery involved but worth watching for battle scenes. I believe Black Lagoon fans can enjoy it. While smoking, break it.

They give off very similar vibes. Urban settings (mostly at night), assassins, action, etc. Very similar jazzy soundtrack that really make the mood work well. They are also both about large organizations/cities that try to organize the characters. If you want something fun and exciting, while a bit ridiculous, these are both enjoyable.

It’s hard to explain why It’s similar xD but don’t you know how in Hakata tonkotsu ramens they always out smart someone that’s how it is in Acca 13 ( I like animes like these two lol but it’s hard to explain how they’re similar without watching them )

Both anime include revenge as a plot point. For Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens, it's relatively short since the series is pretty episodic. If you want to see a whole story of revenge, then 91 Days is the anime you want to watch. Also, both give off a similar vibe. They take place in different time periods, but both have a 1920's-1940's feel with the mafia (from 91 Days) and the hitmen (from Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens).

The main characters in both shows have a dangerous job In both shows one of the main characters is a bit goofy, but when needed can be dark and dangerous (Coco and Banba) In both anime the main characters are surrounded by (mostly) badass support characters with each their own 'speciality'

Both series center around the, generally, seedy underbelly of city life. There is a real conflict between various factions, and the promise of mystery hangs in the air as the characters lives and pasts are slowly unraveled.

Main Similarities: - Both shows have close relationships between male characters, though in TNC it's a bit more romantically insinuated. - Both shows are set in an underworld-like city that is run by the powerful and is a dog-eat-dog world. - Characters from both shows wield knives and katanas as their main weapon or know martial arts. - Both shows feature people trying to kill each other (HTR = assassins, TNC = street fights). - Both shows have a male character who cross-dresses/gets mistaken as a girl and uses it to their advantage in fights. HTR is much more lighter and features a lot of comedy making it an enjoyable watch  read more

both animes have similar light hearted vibes with a loose plot. they have the bickering two male lead dynamic. 
report Recommended by coffeejellystan
Both have quite some (well - animated) action and involve dangerous 'jobs' Jirou and Yashiro share the same voice actor Lin and Misaki both are strong fighters with a temper, but both mean well 
report Recommended by KuroYume-96
The same mix of serious moments/comedy and clever storytelling. Both stories revolve about crime and have similar heartfelt atmosphere. Kirill and Doug duo dynamic resemble those of Lin and Banba. In short: androgynous, energetic man meets observant and composed man. The unlikely pair works very well togethter. Cross dressing shenanigans ensue. Both show are abysmally underappreciated.

less to do with plot similarity, but i personally found a similar vibe between the character dynamics and the development of relationships and friendships throughout the episodic feel of both shows. both are action-based and features characters that hit hard.

you've got your ragtag team of misfits/weirdoes that form a found family bonding through dubious activities and walking a morally gray line in a restless city that never sleeps. it's just a matter of rating and how much blood you're okay with seeing on screen.

What do you think about crime? To me, it's a dangerous underworld in various ways. Both are depicting people and killers who have their own justice. Specific characters must live hard to fulfill their purposes. Light and L, Banba, and Lin are unique, interesting, badass MCs. Each relationship seems weird at first but you'll find their attractiveness. Especially Light and Lin are cruel against criminal things. They keep their strong faith as same as Banba and L like "good" men. Both have mature adult casts, unexpected developments, very cool theme songs. I can write both attractiveness. Basically serious atmosphere but HTR is brighter and easy to watch compared to DN  read more

Random malice squeezes someone's important things. Both are Snatch-like heavy mystery and crime themes. Everything begins con game. Tricked or defeated. The choice is one of two. Lin and Edamura, Banba, and Laurant have almost the same personalities. They have bitter pasts. They're living to resolve the main problem. The style is also very similar. Jazzy and unpredictable. GP tends to it. HTR has more intense action scenes. Both are misleading gems in a good way. Highly recommended. Ramen is delicious food. Cheating people is sometimes interesting.

Even if Occultic;nine does not include explicit killers (well just the albino kid), there is a mysterious atmosphere in both shows. In addition, the killing part is present, on Hakata is explicit Killers doing a job and getting paid while on Occultic;nine we have the 'occult' with black magic and other resources. Of course, reasons behind deaths were money, ambition, or killing just for fun in both shows

Both shows have a similar air of being about detectives who are running behind a very dangerous evil entity.
