Synopsis:

Through a series of unfortunate events, Earth was suddenly attacked by Albert Houser, owner of the offworldly Gedo Corporation. To expel the beast-like invaders, one man created Ariel, a woman-shaped mecha designed to defend humankind! But this mecha required a special kind of pilot, and who better for the job than.. his granddaughters?! Now, to save the human race, Aya (who would rather be studying),  Mia (who would rather be playing sports) and Kazumi (who actually likes the job) must pilot the feminine Ariel, before Houser can complete his nefarious plan!

Del Power X

Del Power X
  • OVA (1 ep x 42 min)
  • 1986

Hanegi Manami is a junior high school girl with unusual relatives, to say the least. Her grandfather's passion is building unusual things, and has just had his latest concoction delivered to their doorstep -- the mecha known as Del Power X! With a driver's seat specially designed for Manami, its powers are rivaled by no other. Unfortunately, her grandfather's rival Von Getsueru and a plethora of other people are determined to prove that fact wrong, regardless of who is in the pilot's seat! Manami must fight for love, pride, and above all else, the loss of her precious bento!

Del Power X and Ariel have a surprising amount in common, from the crazy robot making grandfather, to the strange relatives who have to pilot it! But besides the plot similarities, they also have a very campy feel that sometimes is downright funny. I think if you liked one, you'd like the other.

Hyper Doll

Hyper Doll

Mica Minazuki and Mew Fumizuki are two out-of-this-world high school babes who lead a double life as the legendary Hyper Dolls! These mysterious beauties are Earth's protectors of justice, destroying evil demons of the underworld and keeping the human race safe from harm. With school, festivals, and friendships to handle, will the girls have enough time to save the world without skipping class?

Like campy humor involving a nefarious group of people? Hyper Doll and Ariel are for you. Just one word of advice, don't take it too seriously!

Kidou Shinsengumi Moeyo Ken

Kidou Shinsengumi Moeyo Ken

Yuuko Kondou, Toshie Hijikata, and Kaoru Okita are armor-clad sword-slinging samurai who make up the Mobile Shinsengumi. Their mission? To protect Kyoto from the evil spirits that appear, while keeping their expenses to a minimum. Ghostbusters, look out! A new team is in town, and they are ready to kick ass, samurai style.

Ariel and KSMK both have a campy, very unusual feel to them, filled with mecha that don't belong and a crazy style of humor. If you enjoyed the strangeness of one, you'd enjoy the other!

Moldiver

Moldiver
  • OVA (6 eps x 30 min)
  • 1993

Hiroshi Ozora has always wanted to be a superhero, so he decided to do the only logical thing: create a transforming power suit called Moldiver! With it, he can fight the forces of the maniacal Professor Machinegal, who desires all of the rarities of the world for his private collection - but when his sister Mirai accidentally changes the suit's design to that of a beautiful girl, Hiroshi's plan goes terribly awry! Now, Hiroshi and Mirai must share the suit, alternating between manliness and beauty, to put a stop to Professor Machinegal!

Ariel and Moldiver are both humorous looks at a person who must battle in a superpowered suit. Both are fairly uninteresting at times and will appeal to a niche audience, so if you liked one, try out the other.

Sailor Victory

Sailor Victory

In the futuristic city of Mikado, violent crimes by the use of robots have drastically increased, leaving the city in desperate need of a saviour. Enter Sailor Victory, a top-secret crime fighting team made up of five lovely women who kick butt in three giant mecha of their own! With petty thieves and the power hungry Margarita on the loose, there never is a dull moment for these robot-wielding ladies!

Sailor Victory and Ariel have plots that will remind you of each other, with bumbling female pilots that always save the day! Not much else to say about the pairing, except that you'd probably enjoy this.
