Arislan and Arion both share something unusual -- fighting in roman type times. While Arion focuses on mythology, I think both have a similar feel, and definitely similar character designs.
TheBurningCrow
Both of these anime had the same sort of art style as well as similar character designs. They are both set in about the same time period as well. The plot is serious for both with a nice touch of history and mythical stories.

Another old-school fantasy-themed show that will let you understand how even back in the days japanese animation had not to envy to mainstream western animated blockbuster.

On the contrary, you will probably find these films less chessy and more filled with contents than any other disneyan work of the same era.

Arion is an epic tale of fantasy and mystery, and so is Lodoss War. Both are engaging stories which will intrigue and captivate you, while the lead hero shines and is determined to fulfill his mission. Although the plot might not seem to warrant this recommendation, give it a try.

If you like epic fantasy with a retrolook, you can't go wrong with Arion or Record of lodoss War. While Arion has Greek myth as inspiration and Lodoss is more of a classic fantasy, both have a fast pace, great story and detailed, beautiful designs and a simular epic feel to them. If you like one you should try the other!

Ulysses 31

Ulysses 31

It is the 31st century, and mankind has taken to exploring the stars. Ulysses, captain of the spaceship Odysseus, takes his son Telemachus on a space journey for his 12th birthday. When the children onboard the ship are kidnapped by an alien race to be sacrificed to a giant Cyclops, Ulysses rescues his son and in turn angers the Gods. His interference is punished severely – his entire crew are left frozen in stasis, and his ship’s computer, Shirka, has her memory erased so she can no longer plan a route back to Earth. Cast into the depths of space, Zeus commands Ulysses to find the realm of Hades before being allowed to journey back home. Along the way, the scant crew meet travellers who have felt the wrath of the Gods, and others who have been commanded to impede or even kill those onboard the Odysseus. Will Ulysses ever make it home, or do the Gods have a much more twisted plan in mind for the space explorer?

Another epic adventure inspired by western folklore in soy sauce.

If you liked this show, try this other and you won't regret it.

Both are epic tales about fighting against the wrath of the Gods. Ulysses is more about finding a way back home and child like where Arion has a bit more adult feel to it being more about love. Both share a fantastic journey that characters make in finding their goals. If you like stories about Gods and ancient beings check both of these out.
