This anime has demons and demon hunter theme to it. A team of special armed forces from the Paranormal Disaster Countermeasure Headquarters are responsible for protecting the Japanese from supernatural beings in the city. Unfortunately, the members keep falling to the enemies. They found out that someone they once thought of as a friend has betrayed them. Two individuals have formed a bonding friendship that could not last due to one of them turning into the enemy.

The plot kind of reminds me of Naruto vs Sasuke from Naruto, except that it isn't prolonged like Naruto. Beware of the ladies version of Brokeback Mountain!

Vampire Hunter D(OAV)

This has a pretty obvious name on what the anime is all about. It happens in 12,090 AD, where technology has taken over the world. There are two races living in this world. They are the humans and vampires known as Nobility. They are able to co-exist as vampires do not always have to feed on human blood, although they do prefer that.

A vampire hunter named D, is a dhampire, a half vampire half human being. He is ideal for dealing with vampires. He is despised due to not belonging to either side.

If you ever watched Twilight, then you would be familiar with this. It is rather similar to it, but the story is different.

Each of them is different in terms being comedic to extremely serious with almost zero comedic value. It all comes down to personal taste. Hopefully I am able to help you choose some good anime like High School of the Dead. Go watch them!
