The Best Anime Like Gangsta

Updated September 13, 2021 1.6k votes 431 voters 16.5k views25 items

It's a fairly unique anime, but there are plenty of good anime like Gangsta that can satisfy you in the same way that Worick and Nicolas did. Let's take a look at the best Gangsta recommendations that are similar in terms of story, tone, genre, and more. 

Shows like Baccano! and Durarara!! certainly have a similar feel to Gangsta, with a plot that involves countless people who all have their own respective stories that intertwine with each other. While both these shows have more of a supernatural element to them, you're sure to take comfort in the familiarity they provide stylistically as they unfold each part of their overall arc bit by bit. Of course, we also have stories that don't exactly have to deal with incredible powers and tales of immortality, such as Samurai Champloo which takes us back to the past and on a journey to find a samurai smelling of sunflowers. A tale with a heartbreaking origin and exciting mystery, it's one of the many on this list that's sure to entertain you.

If you're looking for anime series like Gangsta, you've come to the right place. Vote up the Gangsta anime recommendations you'd most want other fans of the series to check out!
