Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds.

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

If you've liked Code Geass and animes with similar theme, well, I'm also sure that you would grow to love Aldnoah Zero too. Just like Code Geass, Aldnoah Zero also have action, romance and a bit of drama. But be prepare for plot twists :>

KazaneHime KazaneHime says...

Both Code Geass and Aldnoah.Zero have phenominal plots with many twists that you won't see coming. I won't get too much into details but there are many similarities, especially that both are originially anime, not based on a manga or light novel.

Both anime revolve around political conflicts and characters who want to create peace. In Aldnoah the Vers Empire fight to maintain their sovereignty and to gain the resources they need to keep this sovereignty. In Code Geass, Japan fights in order to reclaim the sovereignty they lost to the Britannian Empire. Lelouch is similar to both Asseylum and Inaho in from Aldnoah Zero in a few ways. Lelouch wants peace like Asseylum and is selfless in his attempts to gain it, however he is calculating like Inaho. If you liked the politics in either show, or just like stories about conflict resolution, then you should like both anime.

Both of these series have mech battles and the process of war and warfare through the whole show. Plus they both have the same outcome in the end. I won't say anymore about that because of spoilers but they are very simliar. Plus both of the main guys have speical things with their eyes. Also both shows are sci-fi afterall that has to mean something.

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

mrd456 mrd456 says...

both in the futre with the people in space having edvanced meacha and start a wat except in aldnoa zero the people in space are the villians and earth is the good guys

Noriko Noriko says...

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.

PopcornWill PopcornWill says...

The same principle but aldnoah zero has a better ending in my opinion, also when I started watching it I thought it would be roughly the same but the story line isn't that similar and its done in a more interesting way.

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.

thatotakugirl thatotakugirl says...

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.

Both have similar elements in regards to the perspective. In AZ Slaine and Inaho fight on separate sides of the war, much like Mika and Yu in SotE. This relationship is one of the underlying themes throughout the whole of both shows (or at least the first season of AZ)

phoenixaurora phoenixaurora says...

Both series start off with a bang as humanity is nearly wiped out by a foreign race with superior abilities.  After the first episode, the world is left in a post-apocalyptic state.   Throughout the course of the first cour, Aldnoah Zero and Seraph of the End slowly build up to a climactic confrontation between our protagonist and deuteragonist.  

As the humans prepare for war, our black-haired protagonist becomes a soldier in the human army.  Through extenuating circumstances, the blond deuteragonist ends up on the side of the enemies.  Once part of the humans as a gentle idealistic boy, he now fights on the opposite side and is obsessed with saving his childhood friend who is the only person in the world he cares about.  The blond deuteragonist is looked down upon for his origins by his comrades but is the favorite of one of the nobility for a mysterious reason.  The entwined fates of the protagonist and deuteragonist is the driving force behind the dramatic tension of the show.     

Aldnoah Zero has mecha and alien powers while Seraph of the End has vampires and demons.  Watch Aldnoah Zero for an emotionless protagonist who fights with tactics.  Watch Seraph of the End for a hot-blooded, revenge-driven protagonist who wields a sword.  As a bonus, both series have Hiroyuki Sawano on board as composer for the OST.

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