In a broad range of sci-fi type animes i personally think that both are some of the best out there. Cowboy bebop with its captivating scenes in outer space and symbolic storyline and the animatrix with its deep ideas relating to the matrix trilogy, both truely stunningly epic proformances.

What's that, you say? A set of short animations, completely unrelated save for their basic premise, done by the greatest animators of their time!? Could you be talking about Robot Carnival or the Animatrix? You could! ^_^

Beyond this, however, both deal heavily with exploring the different sides of their premise, each having examples of wonder, humor, action, and fun.

Apocalyptic worlds, great big robots, explosions, what more could you need? Big questions about the nature of freedom and humanity itself, you say? Well, you drive a hard bargain, but okay. Appleseed and Animatrix, other than both starting with A, also share the ability to leave your desires for philosophy and destruction equally satisfied.

Now and Then, Here and There

I found the end of the world/post-apocalyptic nature to be somewhat similar in these two shows.  Especially some of the war scenes in Animatrix are similar to those in Now and Then, Here and There.  So if you enjoyed the graphic war content and the dramatic post-apocalyptic scenery in one then you might like it in the other as well.

Connected

Connected

A girl on the subway listens to music, a boy on his skateboard zooms down the streets, and a motorcyclist picks up his date while the buildings of the city both sprout anew and collapse all around them. Fast-paced, always-moving and ever-evolving, follow a group of people in their daily lives while the cities around them develop to the point of self destruction.

Both have a similar feel and message about where humanity might be headed, except that Connected seems much more optimistic about it all.
