In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.
The male protaganists and female protaganists from Aquarion Evol and Guilty Crown have the same voice actors, which shows in the fact that the male and female protaganists from both shows share a similar chemistry. Aquarion Evol has a bit more fanservice and mechas than Guilty Crown, although they are not entirely absent in GC. In my opinion, AE is also a lot cheesier than GC. A Japanese friend told me that a lot of girls loved watching GC, while guys enjoyed AE more, Even though these two anime are very different, they are also very similar, so if you like one, you will surely like the other.TL;DR if you liked Guilty Crown, go watch Aquarion Evol. If you liked Aquarion Evol, go watch Guilty Crown.
Both Aquarion Evol and Guilty Crown have the same storygoal, they need to save the world. The two boy main characters are kind alike, they want their girls more than anything. Interesting unnatural powers shown in both and the mechas makes it more epic. I had goose bumps in every fightingscene because of the great animations and the epic music in both of the animes.
So if you enjoyed anyone of those, go watch the other one asap!
I can't believe that no one else recommendet it. They are both made by 8-Bit studio and got pretty much the same roboter fight story. Aquarion is a battle between two worlds and IS is a harem anime where many teenagers battle each other with robots. But i personaly prefer IS.... both of them are good though
Okay what can I say? The both have the whole boy meets girl(s), with a side of ecchi, and a splash mecha theme goin'. Somewhat predictable, and episodic, yet they both have great character settings.
After being threatened by extinction at the hands of alien invaders called the Zentradi, humanity undertook the task of guaranteeing itself a future by launching fleets of colony ships into space. On Macross Frontier, one such fleet, high school student Saotome Alto's life is changed forever: the fleet is suddenly attacked by unidentified creatures while he is performing aerial stunts for a concert by the wildly popular idol Sheryl. Alto quickly finds himself in the cockpit of a new-model fighter struggling to protect Ranka Lee, a young girl he met only hours earlier, from the invaders' swath of destruction. Noting his performance during this incident, the S.M.S. Skull Squadron private military company invites Alto to join their organization, where he continues protecting his friends and Macross Frontier.
Yes, Yoko Kanno does the music for both but there's even more to compare these 2 animetogether. Delicious action, mecha, and silly love situations! Both have a slick look to them as well. I'm sure you'll enjoy one if you liked the other.
If you enjoyed Aqualion then you will enjoy Macross Frontier. It has alot in common like mecha fights, romance, green loses, etc.
If you like mecha shows where boys and girls have to work together to kick ass these 2 shows are a perfect fit. They look lovely, sound lovely, and the characters/story are sure to pull you in. Check them out.
Did you enjoy the high school hi-jinks and mecha action of Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto? Did you like the layers of sexual innuendo interspersed throughout? Then rejoice, for Aquarion Evol employs both elements to similar effect. Both series are an entertaining mix of the above, with action to boot and over the top stories that extend into the reaches of time and space.
Aquarion Evol does employ a bit more comedy, while Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto goes a dramatic route. Overall however, both are a lot of fun and if you enjoyed one, you are sure to enjoy the other.
AD 2019: the giant mecha known as LINEBARREL falls to Earth, grabbing the attention of the anti-machina organization JUDA. Before JUDA can arrive on the scene, an unfortunate accident occurs: LINEBARREL crashes into Kouichi Hayase, a weak and frail pushover of a boy. Waking up underneath a beautiful naked woman, Kouichi discovers that he now possesses great power and can summon LINEBARREL for his own purposes. All Kouichi has wanted is to become a hero of justice and hold his own, instead his childhood friends Yajima and Risako fighting his battles for him – and now he finally has that chance. With LINEBARREL's power, Kouichi becomes cocky and aggressive, lashing out at those he cares about most; and as a 'hero of justice', Kouichi must find his new place in the world and protect himself from two organizations who want their hands on LINEBARREL.
These two mecha anime both involve fighting against people from another world using mechas which, imo, look identical. The male leads are extremely different, but both suddenly pilot a unique robot, all to protect a girl who seems to have a connection to this other world. Luckily, the guy is backed-up by his many teammates, even if they don't like/trust him at first.
