Although both series takes places at different settings, Claymore and Witchblade definitely has some similarities.
For instance, both series has strong female characters who are literally weapons and has powers beyond those of a normal human. Both series explores the identities, themes, and histories of some of these characters throughout the series.
Both series features plenty of action, drama, and also has violence involving gore.
Both series has a darker side to its plot as the episodes progresses that shows more emotions.
Both series' main female protagonist also has a strong will and is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goals and ambitions. read more
-Both series contain a weapon of sorts used only by women
-Both contain action, gore, and many fight scenes. However Witchblade is far less gory than Elfen Lied
-Both series weapons only activate under certain conditions, mainly due to injuries or threat of being killed
-Both series have an original weapon user, and others that were either clones or virus carriers
-Both series have a woman who is seen as a threat at first, but later in the series prove to be on equal terms do to a bigger threat
-Both series have a monster character introduced later in the show who dies quite fast
-As said above, both monster characters are very jealous of a parent treating someone else as their kid more than them causing them to freak out
-Both series have tragic scenes that pull at the heart
Overall both these series are excellent ones to watch, Witchblade is definitely not as popular and certainly not noticed by many. However both bring similar plots as well as art style together to create a wonderful show!  read more
Chalked full of Action and ready to kick ass! Both series have a Female protagonist who has to do dirty work. While Witchblade has the protagonist wielding a special "power" called the Witchblade, Mnemosyne has the protagonist wield a power of Invulnerability/Regeneration. Mnemosyne is a bit more gory than Witchblade but its an Excellent anime by my standards. Mnemosyne is still currently Airing (at a slow rate) but the 3 Episodes that are currently out are a must SEE!
For the guys: Witchblade being the boob-a-licious anime it is, Mnemosyne has a bit of nudity here and there. so 18+! (NOT HENTAI >=O ) />

Weird ancient power a woman can only wield -> protagonist (voiced by Noto Mamiko in sub) constantly hunted down by a creepyass dude who wants her power (or her *for* her power) -> seems there are others like her; some psycho, some helpful.
Both of these great anime involve powerful woman protagonists as main characters who are in tight struggles against the consequences that these powers bring. Although Mnemosyne is more sinister, both contain intense fighting scenes and have interesting plots. What's more, the two main female characters from these anime are voiced by the same seiyu.
Both feature main characters who are parents that would do anything for their children and have super-powered alter ego's. Both have to with conspiracy's and the main characters working for major corporations.
Witchblade and Tiger and Bunny feature single parents living the life of "super heroes" in order to support their young daughters. Both series have very heavy American comic book vibes (Witchblade is directly based on an American comic and Tiger and Bunny features many nods to American comics including a HArley Quinn and Joker-esque duo) and are more about fun than anything else.
Both about certain ''suits'' or outside powers you can call it that consume them fighting for their own goals.Both has comedy and ''omg'' parts in the series also come to senses of what they really are and what they are doing
Both involve a beautiful woman that can transform into a bloodthirsty superhuman being recruited by the government to fight people with similar powers that have gone mad, and the ending plot twist is similar for each.
Both have a strong female lead. They both transform and fight monsters (Witchblade's are human-made weapons, Devilman are "demons"). They both have a younger girl that they want to protect, that they "consider" their family (though it devilman I think they are in a relationship, I mean yuri)... they both hide the fact that they're fighting to them. Masane has a strong personality, she's a mother alright and doesn't let anyone get in her way... but Jun isn't so strong since she lets everyone boss her arround. They both hate fighting but while they're at it, they enjoy it and go bersek, but they are in danger of being eaten by their power (Masane: literally eaten, desintegrate // Jun: her mind, lost control of herself) Well, I would keep going but I want to make it short: If you liked one, you would like the other, since they have similar atmosphere. I liked Witchblade a lot more, though, I think it's much better than Devilman Lady, but you have to consider that one was made in 1999 and the other in 2006, so of course Witchblade would have better animation, making it more likeable. Enjoy and forgive my english. read more
In spite of the descriptions and (Witchblade's, in particular) advertisement images suggesting the two are very much action series, deceptively enough the titles are actually character-focused stories of family and love. The sci-fi elements are never satisfyingly explained, and the pacing would put off those looking for non-stop flashy action/boobs/lesbianism.
The averages of the two being at around the 7.5/10 mark is probably down to them attracting the wrong crowd; those not interested in the bonds of love shared by a mother & daughter and two 'sisters'. Both are highly recommended to those who value characterization above everything else.
Kurau and Witchblade are ostensibly action shows in which the action takes a back seat to the theme of family. Witchblade portrays a believeable mother and daughter relationship, while the two leads in Kurau share a bond that is neither romantic nor familial but something inbetween. And that's to say nothing of the supporting cast of both series, all of whom have their own family issues to resolve.
+ In both series, a single male adult opts to take on the responsibility of looking after a child (children) due to a force of circumstances.
+ The MC (Segawa Yuuta & Amaha Masane) is the adult people that are still learning how to raise their children
+ Many events (in both anime) are associated with their children
+ Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! is simple slice of life anime
+ Witchblade is heavy action anime (with some gore & fanservice)
- The same style of art;
- Battles between beautiful women with supernatural abilities; they are more adult in "Witchblade" and younger in "Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid";
- Strong relationship between women - mother and daughter in "Witchblade" and two girls in "Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid".
Difference is in fact that "Witchblade" is more seriuos and has stronger plot, when "Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid" exists more for fanservice goals.
This is a very similar to Witchblade.
If you're looking for mother-child relationship, or in accurate a women and a little girl caring for her, then this is what you seek next.
These two series are in a totally different genre from each there, but they hold that point that will make you appreciate the bond between these two girls, and the thrilling moments they've been passing through.
Both use the idea of superhumans and experients connected to greedy corperate rich guys trying to take over the world (long sentence, I know). Both mains have huge responsabilitys with trying to protect their loved ones.
main characters being led on without fulyl realising it but at the same time not blindly following orders completley. main characters in both are doing what they have to to reach their goals. witchblade is about mother who unknowingly has the worlds strongest weapon permenantly attached to her. And uses the weapon to work for a weapons company so that her daughter will not be taken away
Both quite dark and gritty in both storylines and animation style however one is rather lazier than the other in plot development and in the fullness and diversity on the character
Which one is the lazy one?
-Both animes contain physical transformations (transforming into another advanced species)
-Both main characters have respect for human live
-If you like gore and stuff then i'd recommend watching both of them (tho zetman has more)
You should seriously watch these if you're interested in sci-fi & action. Enjoy ^^
