Firstly both are from the same creator, what makes them very similar just for that. - The main characters are very similar, both in talent and personality. - Same style of comedy but it's stronger on Drifters than Hellsing. - The animation/art style is very similar as well, expect the exact same style on both. I really recommend watching the other if you liked one of those!

Badassery, gunfights and both are amoralistic. Also there're nazis in both animes.

Blood and carnage galore. While the themes and motifs aren't alike, the unadulterated blood, gore, and violence is. The main difference in the overall flavor would be that while Hellsing Ultimate is very dark interspersed with Hirano's trademark quirky humor scenes, Elfen Lied has a lot more "cutesy" scenes and harem-esque motifs to fill in the gaps between carnage...

Both have lots of bloods and guts, as well as some excellent action. Berserk could be summed up as a Medieval Hellsing

Both have badass main characters who are loners and are very cruel in enjoying their massacres. That's about the whole story right?

Both are in a Victorian-era setting with heavy paranormal activity. Plus, there's also the master/servant thing going on between Integra and Alucard.

Both don't have a serious story and is all about the badass characters and the gory action, both have zombies in them, both have bad ass weapon specialist. HOTD has ecchi and Hellsing Ultimate has those cartoon comedy moments. Both are high quality animation Madhouse production.

First of all, Alucards voice actors in this series which I didn't know at first and boy there is irony and reminiscene when the character with Alucard's voice appeared. If youve watched Hellsing I reccomend this sooo much butjust for fun the reason why i made this reccomendation was because,which you shuld just skip to for a sneak, of a scene six minutes into EP 8 there was a forest fight scene with the char with Alucards voice that made me just think back at hellsing and fights(nd see such irony).... like using a holy bayonet to block a barrage of bullets...so priestly *hint hint* Episode 11  read more

The protagonists of these shows would sadistically brutalize anybody who threatens their friends' well-being. They enjoy making a mess out of their enemies. They are also, overpowered. They also have very attractive and dependent servants.

Afro and Hellsing both have great action and lots of blood/gore and not to mention beautiful artwork. While Afro Samurai is a pretty good action anime, Hellsing Ultimate has a much better storyline.

Both anime have very similar plot elements involving a strong vampire as the main protagonist (Alucard/Father Abel) that kills other vampires and a female heroine (Seras/Esther) that happened to be entangled into this huge conflict. Other elements include royalty (monarch) , priests and nuns, secret organisations, etc.

They thought at that time. About so-called tragedy is truly exist. Both are vampire shows what depicting bloody battles. Completely mature theme and uniqueness. Interesting character development. HU's art and animation are more splendid. Instead of that, Servamp has gorgeous voice actors. And so many handsome guys. Characters relationship also similar. Alucard and Integra, Kuro and Mahiru are each servant/master. Plus, Alucard and Kuro are vampire. They're not just vampire what seek blood. Alucard is Overpowered and prudent man. On the other hand, Kuro is so Laziness. Both are serious atmospheres and action-packed. Especially HU is remarkable them. Servamp is still a little bright mood.

Both anime are about killing bloodsucking monsters to keep the world safe from those evil creatures. Both anime got the regularly dose of action, violence and bloodshed. Hellsing has more action while Blood+ has more drama. So if you like those vampire based action anime, I'd say watch this.

In terms of plot there is no similarity. However if you like blood, violence, and crude humor, it's something both anime delivers.

Both series deals with vampires. Vampires. Vampire hunters. Vampire hunter lead from royal-ish family. Set it earlier eras. The main characters are fight against the creatures that want to destroy humanity. They both have incredibly similar settings. Both series have very intense Actions scenes as well.

Both heroes saw their family being killed by vampires.

Koko from Jormungand and Integra from Hellsing are females able to scare men with their eyes and destroy them with their wit. Scary smiles come natural to them. They don't do the dirty work themselves: instead, they have badarse underlings that do as they command. They're both mentally strong enough to handle giving commands that will lead to slaughter without batting an eyelash. In short: FEMDOM!

Just like HxH, HU is too loyal to the manga with dark and mature contents. Both have excellent quality animation which are adapted by Madhouse (for HU, its just 5-7) and it's worth it especially if you're big into it. Both have awesome characters who are developed and strong. HxH doesn't get deadly serious until CA arc which is something that HU has common with. Action paced is too in both shows and are great.

If you like a good story with great action, dialogue, and a well drawn plot, CG and HU may be the shows for you to watch. After watching both, I began to see similarities as both are set in a modern setting with fictional elements mostly that has to do with myths and supernatural powers. Other than just mindless fighting and massive chaos, methodical fights and tactics come into play as well. The story starts off similar and ends in a twisted manner which goes the same for CG R2.

... because Christian imagery and Nazis are exotic or something. Hellsing is heavier on the Nazis and VKC is more focused on Catholic esoterica but plenty of both in each. Both are gratuitously dark, with plenty of death but also plenty of black humour to lighten things up. Hellsing being the gorier of the two.

Ultimate and Book of Circus are both re-adaptations that follow the original manga arcs with very little to no deviation. This is in contrast to both the series original anime adaptations which only covered a small percentage of the manga and the rest of the show is anime original. Only difference is that Book of Circus does not cover the whole manga but rather a specific arc of the manga. Outside of that, both shows are similar because of the following: 1) Both take place in England 2) Both have a protagonist (Ciel and Integra) who makes a deal with a demonic figure (a vampire and actual  read more

Golden Kamuy has a serious atmosphere to it, similar to Hellsing's own atmosphere, as well as a good amount of imaginative bloodshed. If you like the type of action that's in Hellsing, you'll definitely like the action in this, though at some points there seems to be less (at some points, that is). The main characters are very likable and, just like in Hellsing, there are comedic or light hearted moments that take place within a plot that you originally wouldn't expect it from. The art and character designs are also somewhat reminiscent of Hellsing Ultimate; yet, where I would give Hellsing Ultimate 12/10 on  read more

Both anime try to understand human emotion and behaviour. Both dabble in seeking what is right and what is actually wrong. The character of Anderson and the major see humanity in a different light than the others, they see destruction as a duty. Similarly, even Decim tries to understand human emotion as to judge humans better and through various incidents finally realises what it is to live a complete life. Both also have aspects of reincarnation and also complex, abstract dialogues which amount to nothing

These two anime are very similar for following reasons: -Both are extremely over-the-top, and indulge in insanity. -Both have very solid sound, visuals, and outlandish characters -Both have very strong emphasis on certain ideologies (for Hellsing the honor, and for Kakegurui the thrill of the gamble) -Both have an unstoppable main protagonist, who is at the very depths of madness. -Both could care less about plot -While Hellsing is very heavy on violence, Kakegurui has a very sexual nature to it, with a tinge more insanity than Hellsing. The turn off for most people is the plot, but if you are looking for an entertaining thriller, then this is for you.

Short, but sweet OVAs released on a yearly basis with hour long episodes. While Giant Robo is a little shorter (minus the Ginrei special), it is no way or form less epic or amazing than what Hellsing has to offer. Also shares some seiyuus and soundtracks are both composed by the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.

Hellsing and Bleach are two action packed animes that any action/shounen lover would love. Both have badass Prot with power out of world, plenty of fights to keep u glued and lots of blood to make it feel real. Both have supernatural element that is- Vampires in Hellsing and Shinigami in Bleach, and ofc there are big bad villians who must stand in their way. the main character is kurosaki ichigo who is quite similar to alucard in the hellsing series..

The main thing that both anime got in common is the fact that they are both about vampires. Some vampires wish to do harm and have some sort of evil plan but the main character(s) tries/try to stop them of course. Hellsing Ultimate has more action than Vampire Knight Guilty. Vampire Knight Guilty on the other hand is about more than just action and bloodshed. It also involves romance and therefore Vampire Knight Guilty is a shoujo anime while Hellsing Ultimate is a shounen anime.

Both anime are about vampires. Some vampires wish to do harm and have some sort of evil plan and, of course, the main characters try to stop them. Hellsing Ultimate definitely has more action than Vampire Knight. Besides that does it take a while for the action to start in Vampire Knight. Vampire Knight also involves romance and therefore Vampire Knight is more a shoujo while Hellsing Ultimate is more a shounen.

Blood, humor and horror combined. While watching Princess Resurrection I noticed that both main characters have a strange similarity with one another. One being that they are master and servants and another being that one saved the other from death. Soon two of the main characters find themselves into a strange world that they didn't know about until after being brought back to life. Thus having to deal with vicious monsters and strange awkward moments with other characters. Though the stories are different with one another.. if you'd watch you'd notice the strange similarities.

Both of these series are set in a post-war era, reminiscent of World War I & II. It shows the struggles of rebuilding after the war, and the horrors of ensuing conflict.

On the outside, these two series may not appear to share many similarities, but once you give them a chance, you'll see that they're more common than you think. Both series feature a bad-ass protagonist whom is their associated organization's "trump card." The first bit of each series starts with a variety of smaller missions, however near the end, they both expand into a larger arc. To top it off, both anime are seinen and have some of best action scenes in all of anime!

These two anime felt very similar to me, although at first glance they would appear complete opposites. Both had the theme of death and transformation (Vampire/cyborg), the heroins both had a dark past, fantastical settings (cyber-punk/supernatural fantasy), lots of blood n' gore (plus other disturbing sights), fight scenes had the same style and direction (both had big guns and superhuman abilities) and they both had top-notch animation and good sound.

Similarities: -Both involve the supernatural, and specifically—vampires—though Bake also involves many other supernatural creatures. Hellsing is pretty much only vampires, other than one werewolf who doesn't get much screen time. -Both have some action. Hellsing is much, much more focused on action than Bake though, and it's much gorier. Differences: Literally everything else.
