It is the year 3287, and the countries of Roxche and Soux-Beil have been feuding for one hundred and thirty years. In the country of Roxche, the young air force pilot Allison has just reunited with her childhood friend Wil; and together, they are about to embark on a grand adventure. Whether it's ending the war between the countries with the help of a legendary treasure, traveling into hostile territory, or helping restore a princess's right to the throne, Allison and Wil will complete their missions with kindness and honor.
In another world, there exist many countries, each with different cultures, customs, and traditions. From technological marvels to folk legends, each location yields a vast wealth of insight of its people: their hopes and their dreams, their failures and fears. Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.
It seems a given to make this recommendation, given that Kino and Allison were made by the same person; it shows, greatly. Both anime are slice-of-life stories with somewhat of a moral twist (more so in Kino). I found Kino to be the far more compelling of the two.
It does seem that stories that are gentle and slow in their telling appear to be a common trait with these two series. As such you are drawn into the stories with relative ease and enjoyment, resulting in you able to sit back and relax. Well worth watching both in their adventures.
Both anime are based on books by Keiichi Sigsawa. Probably because of this they have a similar feel, though adaptation of Allison and Lillia into anime didn't go equally well as adaptation of Kino's Journey. Anyway if you seen one you should definitely check the other.
If you are looking for something slow yet still interesting to watch look no further than these 2 titles. Allison and Lillia has a tiny bit more of a plot than Kino's Journey but both have adventures traveling across a lot of land exploring their vast worlds. check one out if you enjoyed the other
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
Both of these stories focus on a person/people in the army. While FMA is focused alot on alchemy, and Allison and Lillia has alot to do with planes, in the end they both focus on a war and the military. Though these are quite different plots, they have a similar feeling that keeps you watching them.
Both of these shows contain characters which have to face war, the military, and mystery. But, FMA is fantasy whereas Allison to Lillia is not and it replaces the alchemy for planes.
They are both an adventure so go and watch them!
Allison and Lillia and Fullmetal Alchemist both involve a war type of setting. Each series focuses on the friendship between two people and their struggles in a time of uprising.
In the world of Prestal, Noble men perform noble deeds for noble purposes. All of this is performed under the careful gaze of the Guild, a race apart who live in cities in the sky. We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.
It would be near impossible to not make a recommendation for this pair, so here goes. Last Exile and Allison and Lillia are damn near identical in many ways. Their stories are both remarkably similar (though A&L is more of a slice-of-life journey than the plot-heavy Last Exile), the animation is similar, and the free as a bird mood and feel is also very alike. If you liked one, it's almost impossible you'd not like the other.
If Allison & Lillia is your cup of tea, but you couldn't help but wish that the animation was prettier or that the story was darker and heavier, then you will definitely want to give Last Exile a watch. Both series are quite similar as they focus on two opposing countries that must be united with the help of two extraordinary kids. The world of Last Exile will leave you reminiscing the things you loved about Allison & Lillia and a lot more.
Allison and Lillia is what you get when you take Last Exile and make everything dull. If you are just looking for a show about pilots doing what they love and traveling through the skies they are a great match. If you need something slow Allison and Lillia is best where if you want something more compelling and awesome Last Exile is the better choice.
Wars leech the life out of a country in so many ways. They consume lives and resources at an incredible rate, but what is worst is the way they eat away at hope. The Empire, which has survived the years of war, now finds itself with a new conflict to resolve: with the exception of the noble families that managed to hold their wealth during the struggle, its populace is made up of starving citizens and war-damaged soldiers. Section III of the army of the Empire was created to deal with this ongoing problem; however, their progress was been slow on all fronts. The citizens fear and distrust them due to their experiences with other soldiers, the nobles have no use for them, and the other branches of the military mock them for the ineffectual nature. LT. Alice L. Malvin of Section III Pumpkin Scissors won't be defeated, though, even if her newest recruit does have something unusual about him.
While Pumpkin Scissors isn't identical to Allison and Lillia in plot, both have a very similar idea: members of a military travel from place to place after the end of a war, trying to fix the problems they encounter along the way. Though there is a bit of comedy to be found in both, the drama and occasional action take the forefront. If you liked one, definitely give the other a try.
Both anime are militaristic themed and have similar setting based on interwar period. If you like those as much as I do, you should definitely watch them.
Both shows are a military slice of life story where the characters travel across the land fixing problems along the way. There's plenty of heartache and tender moments that look at the seriousness of war but both also add in some comedy as well. try one if you liked the other.
The Nation of Gallia has always remained neutral in conflicts and has only gone to war to defend itself. However, as war flares between the East Europan Imperial Alliance and the Atlantic Federation, Gallia is soon targeted for its abundance of ragnite ore, a versatile and hugely valuable material. The Civilian Militia is soon called into action, and Welkin Gunther - son of a legendary war hero - is named leader of Squad 7. Under his command are the headstrong and practical Alicia Melchiott; the sharp-tongued Brigitte Stark; the grizzled veteran, Largo Potter; and Welkin's adopted sister Isara, whose Darcsen heritage means she faces prejudice, even from members of her own squad. With the rest of Squad 7 and the mighty tank Edelweiss, they must do their best to defend Gallia.
Yet another anime based on the interwar period combined with militaristic themes. Odds are you might like one if you liked the other. Though I find Allison and Lillia the better one of those two.
Allison and Lillia and Valkyria Chronicles involve a journey that a group of people have to take to try and make it to a peaceful setting. War is intermediate and upfront in the lives of the main characters.
