Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire's military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers - except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg's military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.
Area 11 is still under Britannian rule and the Elevens remain brutally oppressed; what’s more, their saviour, Zero, is nowhere to be found and all of Britannia believes the rebellion is finally over. Elsewhere, having lost the battle, Lelouch sets his sights upon winning the war – but the task is no easier since the Britannian forces have learned some valuable lessons all of their own. Not only have they discovered his identity and captured many of his Black Knights, but they now manipulate the memories of all of his friends. Worst of all, they have taken the most precious thing in his life – his dear sister, Nunnally. With his hatred for the Britannians stronger than ever before, Lelouch must now recuperate his forces and bring their rule of terror to an end.
If you liked 07-Ghost, you'll probably like Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2. For the same reasons as cited in the first series; both are very military-focused, and the storylines are both steeped in secrets, double-crossing and dodgy authority figures.
Also, the central characters are both young men, schooled in the confines of, or in close proximity to, a military setting. Both are disillusioned with their 'leaders', and are spurred forward to break ranks and dismantle the imbalance/corruption that their authority figure represents... at great risk to their lives.
Both have pasts which gradually reveal a great deal of the inner-workings of their journey, including childhood trauma and subsequent secrets.
Middle school student Ganta Igarashi witnessed the slaughter of his entire class by the mysterious 'Red Man', and as the only survivor, he was labeled a mass murderer and sentenced to death. Now an inmate at the privately-owned prison and ‘amusement park' known as Deadman Wonderland, Ganta must try to survive in a place where inmates are the main attraction in brutal gladiator-style games. At the same time, he must attempt to uncover the truth behind the ‘Red Man', his mysterious childhood friend Shiro, and why he was the only survivor that bloody day.
Perhaps a bizare recommendation, but Teito (07-Ghost) is a former slave who is also betrayed and eventually seeks his vengenace against those he trusted. Whereas in DW, Ganta was framed by the Red Man for murder and seeks to avenge his classmates' deaths. In both shows there are elements of supernatural powers. The main similarity between the two is that both characters can't remember their pasts. Ganta can't remember what happened to him ten years ago, and Teito can't remember what happened to him before he came to the military. DW has more blood and gore, but Ghost is not lacking in action, and with many twists and turns, it will keep you throughly entertained.
The past of the main character is a big focus, but the origin of their power is mysterious. Both are set in a time that puts nations at war, but the real underlying cause is a much smaller battle of good vs. evil (or evil vs good, it's hard to distinguish who is really on the "good" side for both shows). Both heavily involve magic (in different forms).
Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
I know they don't seem very similar, but I couldn't help but feel the love between in the male characters in both series seem similar, where it almost seem shounen ai, if you like that part of the anime than check out the other....
In Amberground, the land of eternal twilight, Letter Bees and their dingos – creatures trained to protect them – deliver mail to the general populace. However, unlike normal mail carriers, their job is perilous as they must traverse the country while fighting off the giant armored insects known as Gaichuu. One day, a Letter Bee named Gauche collects his latest delivery: a young boy named Lag Seeing, whose mother was taken under mysterious circumstances to the capital of Akatsuki. As the pair travels together, they strike up a friendship, but when they finally reach their destination Lag and Gauche part ways. Now, several years later, Lag is about to take the exam to become a Letter Bee himself so that he can meet with Gauche again and find out what really happened to his mother all those years ago. But before any of that, he must find himself a dingo...
Both series are about a boy with powers he is still trying to understand. They are both set in fantastical worlds with their own religion and government, and the main character has to find his way in the world. Both show the friendships and connections necessary in order to make it in the world, and both mix adventure and drama with humor to make an entertaining mix.
