Kakumeiki Valvrave

Kakumeiki Valvrave

In the future, Earth is split into three factions: Dorssia, an empire bent on world domination; ARSUS, a military alliance; and Jiro, a collection of neutral states with colonies across the galaxy. On one such colony, Haruto Tokishima lives a carefree life at Sakimori High, where his greatest concern is mustering the courage to confess to his childhood friend, Shouko. His idyllic life is broken, however, when a team of Dorssian super-soldiers, led by the enigmatic L-elf, assaults the colony to retrieve the 'Valvrave', a mobile suit secretly being constructed there. In the resulting chaos, Haruto watches as Shouko disappears within a laser’s blast; enraged, he climbs into the now accessible Valvrave, and defeats the Dorssian army after forsaking his humanity to the machine. Haruto pledges to protect the colony, but can he come to terms with what he's given up to gain such power?

Only 3 episodes in with Aldnoah Zero, but I think i'm safe recommending this to Valvrave. Up against an over powered enemy, realistic consequences in war (or more than most lol), graphic when needed, etc. If you liked Valvrave then you'll like this & V-V

Both shows have two big forces fighing each other with big mecha robots. The story is somewhat similar and if you liked one of those, you will probably like the other.

Both are centered around the conflict of two races, the Terrans/Elevens and the Martians/Britannians. Both anime have Mechs, with the Martians/Britannians having more specialised mechs and the Terrans/Elevens having regular millitary mechs.

The MCs are both highschool students who are calm, collected and think rationally instead of emotionally. Slaine and Suzaku share the same similarities as they are on the enemy's side even though their originis are that of the opposite side.

Both main characters are somewhat similar (smart). Both are mecha-anime with a world-war as main plot. I think if you liked aldnoah zero you will most likely like code geass, mabye not the other way around though.

theSentinel theSentinel says...

If you like going beyond simple mecha action, then these animes are for you.  Its not simply fighting mechas, but a battle of intellect as well.  Deeper tactical and stratigical combat and warfare.  If you like one you will most likely like the other

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.

Both Aldnoah and Gargantia are mecha series under Gen Urobuchi. Both feature a world where humanity has been split between earth and space, and the conflicts that come with their interaction. While Aldnoah is a much more serious show, with the casulties of war and race, Gargantia is more of an "stranger in a strange land" with the main character arriving on earth by accident. Both series are action and drama heavy, with flashy villains arriving in their own mechas to do battle and shady secrets hidden by the military. For mecha fans and anime fans alike, these are good, short series to try out if you're feeling the need for action and plot twists, and both revel Urobuchi's signature "oh no they didn't" mouth open shaking fist at the sky emotions.

theSentinel theSentinel says...

Both animes are fantastic and have a lot to think about.  If you watch one and like it then I highly reccommend the other.

Esperis Esperis says...

Both will spark your interest's Aldonoah.Zero and Gargantia the plot is diferent to some degre but u will enjoy watching them. And since both have some nice plots that cant be guesed just by watching 2 or more episodes it makes them a gereat series. Unlike some anime that u can gues it is gona end just by watching 1 episode.

The music feels similar, and both anime have the same "feel" to them. Both have fast pace and lots of action

Legend of the Galactic Heroes

Legend of the Galactic Heroes

The war between the monarchical Galactic Empire and the democratic Free Planets Alliance has raged ceaselessly across the galaxy for over a century, with the fleets of both powers having fought countless battles. Currently the conflict revolves around the strategic Iserlohn Corridor, one of only two passages of space through which the two forces can access each other. Here the Empire has built the nigh-impregnable Iserlohn Fortress, whose deadly weaponry has thwarted repeated efforts by the Alliance to capture her. Phezzan, a neutral mercantile state, controls the other corridor. The long war has resulted in an indecisive stalemate, but there are two men from the two worlds who will change everything: Wen-Li Yang, a gifted strategist from the Alliance who wants nothing more than to retire and be a historian; and Reinhard von Lohengramm, a man from the Empire whose ambition knows no bounds. Their loves, struggles, triumphs and failures play across an interstellar stage of intrigue, war and death.

Aldnoah Zero has a lot more modern bells and whistles, to say nothing of some of the character tropes, but the political themes and shades-of-gray morality reminded me of LOGH, another sci-fi drama involving space monarchy and democratic strife.  Neither are afraid of killing characters, which can be refreshing when trying to portray war.  The motivations for battle are a little weaker in Aldnoah, but perhaps remain to be seen.  All in all, both are great if you enjoy some space conflict with a heap of moral ambiguity and well-rounded characters!
