Far, far away in a distant time, there is a tribe of people called the Golden Tribe who have the ability to create stars and foretell the future. They gave out a warning to those who have yet to mature: 'Move.'. Three tribes answered their call: the Silver Tribe, the Bronze Tribe, and the Heroic Tribe. Soon after, the Golden Tribe encountered a crashed ship in which only a baby human known as Age survived; they named the child's race the Iron Tribe and assigned one of the few living members of the Heroic Tribe to protect him and his race. Now, in a distant part of the galaxy, humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the other tribes. With only a prophecy to go on, they set out to the deepest depths of space to find their savior named Age -- humanity's last hope.
Seeing as both Heroic Age and Appleseed are futuristic/fantastical mecha anime of a similar style, I believe that those who enjoyed one for these reasons would appreciate the other. But the thing that links these shows the most to me is the vivid, eye-catching art. While it might not be of identical styles, the overall feel is the same. Quite breath-taking, which really adds to the otherworldly/futuristic/surreal feeling that both shows hold.
Many years in the future, crime is out of hand. In order keep the city safe, the Tank Police were created.

While on the hunt for an underage hacker, Faye is the sole witness to identifying a man who causes a tanker explosion that leaves people up to three miles away in comas. The bounty that ensues is the largest the galaxy has EVER seen, 300,000,000 wulongs. It's up to Spike and the gang to solve the mystery of this strange disease, and to stop the assailant at large, for failure would result in all life on Mars being eliminated on Halloween night.
Cowboy Bebop the Movie and Appleseed are two movies that come from well established franchises. In the case of Appleseed this is the third remake of the story while in the case of Cowboy Bebop it is its own separate adventure. They are both set in a future where anything is possible. What they also share in common is terrorism. In the case of Appleseed it is against the further production of non-humans. Cowboy Bebop it is a biochemical attack on mankind in personal retaliation. The characters in both are unique and carry great depth in their actions and thoughts. The story for both is intriguing and worth diving into. The action for both is good as well with gun play and sometimes hand to hand. If you like robots, future political problems and interesting characters then both of these are worth your time.
It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it. This series follows Public Peace Section 9, a government organization that plays behind the scenes to stop the worst of these criminals. Join Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team as they take you through an incredibly vivid world filled with plots of such depth and intrigue as is seldom seen.
if you liked one of these you would like the other, although Appleseed is a movie and Ghost in the Shell Complex is a series (although there are movies about it) i thought i would recomend if one liked the one they would like the other, both anime have female leads, one a military hero the other a police cyborg, each have cyborg and advanced technology and plently of action, so check it out!
In the futuristic city of Judoh, some dangers are too much for the police--they require Special Force agent Daisuke Aurora and his robot partner J! When the city's massive underworld is rocked by upheaval, Daisuke and J must struggle to contain gang bosses battling for supremacy. But is there more going on than meets the eye? Who is behind the sudden rise of a previously minor politican to the top of Judoh's underground? How are the mysterious Celestials, who watch Judoh from above, involved? And what secrets lie hidden in Daisuke's own past--and inside J's memory?
Utopia, from the Greek eutopos ("good place") and outopos ("no place"), is an ideal society created for human benefit. Utopian fiction, a genre closely related to science fiction, describes such a society. But the worlds of Appleseed and Heat Guy J are not utopian but dystopian.
Appleseed opens with the promise of an utopian society in Olympus but, as Deunan Knute soon finds out, "utopia" is an ambiguous term. In Heat Guy J, outsiders believe the city of Judoh is paradise on Earth; but for longtime resident Daisuke Aurora, Judoh is a hardboiled wonderland.
Heat Guy J and Appleseed are part of the trend of crossing noir sensibilities with science fiction themes. If you're a fan of Isaac Asimov's Robot Series, or just tech-noir in general, check them out.
