Synopsis:

It is the year 2124, and the crew of a medical transport ship are carrying dangerous cargo to its destination. The contents, though mostly unknown, are rumored to be viral in nature, and must not be let out under any circumstances. But when a leak occurs, the ship, as well as the crew, is at risk of being destroyed. With only two robotic space suits and limited ammo, can they escape in time, or are their fates sealed?

Blue Gender

Blue Gender

In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.

Aboslutely a perfect rec for eachoter. Both feature unexpected twist, have a certian romance undertone and have, most improtantly of all: alot of aliens and quite some gore. The only main difference is that Blue Gender has fairly dated art and animation, while Archetypes Forces is completely computer generated

Truly, Archetypes Forces and Blue Gender share a common thread of a horrific type sci-fi plot that will keep you on your toes. Twists abound in both series, and are generally compelling and interesting. I highly think you'd like one if you liked the other.

Galerians: Rion

Galerians: Rion
  • Movie (3 eps x 30 min)
  • 2002

In a dark dystopic future, humankind is controlled by Dorothy, a sentient supercomputer who believes she is god. To help do her bidding, she created beings known as Galerians -- humans with supernatural and psychokinetic abilities that rival no other. Enter Rion, a young man who possesses the skills of the Galerians, and unwillingly holds the key to Dorothy's destruction within his mind. As enemies search to destroy him, Rion must race against the clock to find his long lost sister and save humanity, before Dorothy and the Galerians can destroy it...

Now, you might be thinking that I recommended these two because they are both CG, right? Well, you are wrong! The visual style specifically, as well as the twist intensive sci fi plot are what made me think of this, and I think it fits very well. The dark tone and mood, the suspense, and the wonderful sci fi aspect are prevalent in both, and I know you'd like one if you liked the other.

Both are wonderful sci-fi tales that are suspenseful and dark. Both are CG so they are different from the normal types of animation ova or movies. Archetypes Forces is way shorter than Rion but check one out if you enjoyed the other.

Alien Nine

Alien Nine

At a typical elementary school in Japan, yearly chores are being distributed. Yuri and 3 other students are chosen to be the beneficiaries of the alien hats for the year. Alien hats?! Yuri's sentiments, exactly. Despite her misgivings, she and her classmates must round up stray aliens that have escaped from a crashed spaceship -- with the help of the alien hats, of course.

Despite being set in an elementary school rather than on a high tech spaceship, Alien Nine is far more mature, intelligent and entertaining than Archetypes Forces. Though the animation style is completely different, both feature skating around after aliens and twisty plots - something the cutesy style of A9 manages to make far more shocking than the cg faux noir feel of AF.

Crest of the Stars: Birth

Crest of the Stars: Birth
  • TV Special (1 ep x 24 min)
  • 2000

In a technology-inclined future, a young prince of the Abriel family and his lover take a detour on their way home from an interplanetary trading mission to explore the remains of a dead star. The ancient spaceship they find within causes them to look back over the birth of their race, the Ahb, genetically engineered humans designed to travel the vastness of space...

The fully cg animation and fast paced action of Archetypes Forces makes an interesting contrast with the experimental style and strong characterisation of Seikai no Danshou, in light of their similar spaceship setting. While both have an interest in telling a less than straightforward story, I'll leave you to decide which you think is more enjoyable.

Lightning Trap: Leina & Laika

Lightning Trap: Leina & Laika

In present day Tokyo, traveling has never been more comfortable than aboard the Lightning L808, Japan's new luxury passenger plane. One day, on what seemed to be a routine flight, Haruka Leina and the plane's passengers were unaware of the mysterious and top secret cargo brought aboard, which attracted the attention of international terrorists set on obtaining it. Now, with a dangerous hostage situation at hand, only special agent Laika Strange and brave Leina may be able to save the passengers, and keep the deadly cargo from falling into the wrong hands...

Dealing with a monster outbreak in a pressurised environment is at the center of Lightning Trap and Archetypes Forces. Yes, retro 80s aircraft in the first is rather different from the CG rendered spaceship in the second, but as short sharp doses of action, both will eject your cargo container quite happily.
