Revenge anime


Revenge. The desire to restore justice with our own hands, to pay tribute in exchange for the pain caused. Revenge has become a motive more than once throughout history, and is ingrained in culture. Its nature is at the same time easy to understand by any person, but always ambiguous. That is why revenge as a phenomenon is so strongly entrenched in our minds as an understandable motivation. Literature, movies, games - we have seen more than once stories about characters who want revenge. We've put together a revenge anime in the best possible way.


The Gungrave anime is based on a game about two best friends, Brandon Heath and Harry McDowell. Once they were partners and tycoons of the underworld, trying to make for themselves an easy and well-fed life. Everything changes when they join the infamous mafia syndicate known as Millennium.


They both have a goal to reach the top, however, unlike his friend, Harry wants to pull it off with trickery. Their friendship gradually falls apart, as their values and beliefs contradict each other, until one fateful day Harry betrays Brandon and kills him as a sign of loyalty to the Millennium. Thirteen years later, Brandon has risen from the grave and is set to take revenge on both the syndicate and Harry.

This is a story of friendship and betrayal that unfolds over the years. The first part of the anime tells how Brandon and Harry enter into a syndicate and how the relationship between them changes. Gungrave is an anime with many intense moments that will keep you on your toes, making you want to watch more and more as the story unfolds.

Gankutsuou / Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte Cristo is probably one of the best anime about revenge. Based on the French novel Le Comte de Monte-Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, it tells the story of a naive young man named Albert Mor-Ser, who lived in the 51st century. Albert was helped to escape his kidnappers by a nobleman known as the Count of Monte Cristo during a festival at the lunar colony.


Albert invites the count to visit him in Paris, not even suspecting that he has an ulterior motive, to take revenge on those who once betrayed him. What Albert does not know is that the count has a past that affects his family and, in particular, his father. And he won't give up his plan until he gets his.

With a unique art style, Gankutsuou is a new take on an old story that offers a gripping storyline full of action and mystery that will never leave you bored. The title has a brilliant origin and was able to be adapted into an equally brilliant revenge anime. The graph implements a delightful and layered plan that would surprise even L.

Elfen Lied

Lucy is a Diclonius, a new milestone in evolution born from a series of inhuman government scientific experiments. Unlike humans, she has a pair of horns on her head and special invisible tentacle arms known as "Vectors", capable of killing and tearing opponents.


She escapes from the laboratory and kills everyone in her path. However, upon escaping, Lucy suffers a head injury, due to which she develops a split personality. The second person is a harmless child, and two schoolchildren, Kota and Yuka, who unknowingly become involved in military intrigues, are taken to protect her.

After all, the main character is a non-human being who in no way empathizes and does not have a sense of morality, sadistically destroying everything until she takes revenge on those who tortured her.
