Battle Angel Alita

Battle Angel Alita

Battle angel alita really reminds me off Polymatrix. It's also about earth being colonized by robots. And a girl that works as a police and tries to hold of the robots. And there is action and love exatcly as it is in battle angel. I myself dind't really like this movie. I guess you should watch the series before you watch this. Though it's alot like Battle angel alita
TheBurningCrow

For fans of Armitage, Battle Angel Alita is a fairly obvious choice. Both main characters are robots fighting to stay alive and find their place in human society. These are both decent action anime.

Seraphim
Both young beauties, both cyborgs/androids, and both kick ass.
Tomte
Both series are cyborg series in a dark future with alot of insanity and injustice. Both worth watching.
freakzilla
Both Battle Angel and Armitage III concern a cyborg who protect society from other (cyborg)criminals. Since both are short there's isnt much more to add. If you like one you'll definitely like the other
rdent
Battle Angel's main char is similar to Armitage in that they are both deadly robots that are trying to find their place in a world of humans.
sothis

Battle Angel Alita, like Armitage, is a cyberpunk romp through the lives of the humanity-challenged and what they must do to discover themselves and survive. Though Armitage is clearly the superior of the two, you'd most certainly appreciate BAA if you liked Armitage.

cerberus38

Both anime are set in a futuristic society where androids are commonplace. With the titular characters being an android, both anime explore their emotions and what it means to be human rather than artificial. The feel and themes of both anime are very similar so I'm sure that if you liked one then you'll like the other.

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell
  • Movie (1 ep x 83 min)
  • 1995

A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs. Is he an evil genius, or could he signal the beginning of a new age in the relationship between man and machine?

TheBurningCrow

Ghost in the Shell is a 'cult' anime classic now. The cybernetics/robotics are very present in both these movies as well as the fact that the main character in both is a strong female presence. There is lots of great action in both Ghost in the Shell and Armitage 111 Poly-Matrix.

Ripzter
Both series have a kick ass robot chick. I think that alone is reason enough to check out both series. There are also other similar fetaures with these series.
Bateau
Two fantastic futuristic movies. And the lead characters are female. -_^ Chicks, guns, computers, gunfights, how can you go wrong? I think you would love both of these movies.
Omurqi

Both shows lay heavy focus on the question what the human soul or mind is. They both contain questions about the ethics of artificial lifeforms and contain plenty of action.

8 Man After

8 Man After
  • OVA (4 eps x 25 min)
  • 1993

Hazama is a private detective, who becomes fatally wounded in a run-of-the-mill case. In order to survive, Hazama is tranformed into the legendary cyborg 8Man -- to put an end to the cybernetically-enhanced criminals' wave of crime. But as the death count increases, Hazama soon begins to question how much of his real self is left, and if the emotionless 8Man he becomes is really in control...

Well... 8man is about killing crazed drugged up cyborgs, and Armitage is about saving cyborgs... They have a similar feel, and what would be concider complex lead characters. Both are short and packed with constant action.
chii

What are the differences between man and machine? What defines a soul? Both 8 Man After and Armitage focus on finding the answers to these questions for themselves while blowing things up of course. If you liked one you'll like the other.

Metropolis

  • 2001

Metropolis is a grand high-tech city-state populated by humans and robots alike. It is in these streets that Detective Shunsaku Ban and his sidekick Kenichi search for the rebel scientist Dr. Laughton who unbenounced to them, is developing a super android named Tima as a tool for the Duke of Metropolis.

Armitage - Polymatrix is another story of human looking robots. I like Armitage way better than Metropolis since it got more story. I'm sure you will like it alot too.
kilrothi

Both Armitage and Metropolis have female humanoid robots as the main characters in a future not so far from our own, but there the similarities end. Armitage is a willful, rough and tough warrior, while Tima is timid and helpless for most of the movie.

Wonderful Days

If you liked Armitage III: Polymatrix you may like Wonderful days. they both got this robot period. the cars, bikes, guns and stuff.
TheBurningCrow
Both of these anime have a theme about claiming certain rights for a group in society. In Armitage, we have the thirds, and in Wonderful Days we have a whole class of outcasts and underclass citizens, so either way, there is a fight for freedom, and great visuals. Wonderful Days is quite a bit more impressive visually than Armitage, but Armitage has a more compelling story.
