Similar premise of a swordsman who has to kill people/things to fix a checkered past. They are both accompanied by a younger person on their journey. Both series take place in Feudal Japan, with some aspect inspired by Japanese mythology with Immortal being more grounded. The two series are also fairly violent with many fight scenes. The main difference is in tone, where Dororo is overall more light-hearted while Immortal is a 100% seinen show.

Both are gritty, mature stories of revenge set in historical Japan. They pull no punches unafraid to show the darker side of humanity.

Both happen during the Edo Period of Japan. Both are about the journey of the characters and how they encounter different enemies. Samurai Champloo is funny, while Mugen no Juunin has a more serious theme, but I think that if you enjoy one of these you woul enjoy the other.

Both Sword of the stranger and Blade of the immortal (2019) are similar for sword fighting anime. In two series, there is a lot of blood , you fight exciting and an interesting history

Period setting series with mature themes and a tone reminiscent of the Japanese golden age of film samurai movies. The Immortal is a little more fantastical but I imagine interests in these series will overlap for most people.

Both are samurai stories for a mature audience. Both have mixed other elements into the historical content that make the events in the story seem heavier or lighter. I liked the touch of sophisticatedness of both, but there are also cool flights and characters and people that are more into these parts will also like both anime. Art is also good in both.

Young girl witnesses the murder of her family, swears revenge. Both anime are quite violent and take place in similar setting of past Japan, although visibly different era, yet still gives off similar vibe.

-Two traveling companions in a Samurai era. -Main male characters are immortal in their own way; Sugimoto can fight his way through everything basically without dying while Mugen is indeed immortal and his wounds are instantly healed. -Both anime have deep and amazing story and characters -Animation is decent to very good as well.
