Ghost in the Shell and Armitage III both explore the interaction between humans and cyborgs with dark overtones and incredible animation. The characterization is wonderful and the subtle hints at what artificial intelligence may one day become make you think about the state of mankind.

MalteseFalcon MalteseFalcon says...

There are numerous anime which explore the question "what makes us human". If we slowly replace parts of ourselves, at which point do we go from man to machine? Do we lose our soul? And if not, can machines have souls as well? Two of the more serious examples of this type of anime are Ghost in the Shell and Armitage III. Both set in dark cyberpunk futures, they interspread intense action with philisophical exploration. Whether you are looking for more philosophy, or just a good cyberpunk action romp, neither of these disappoint

If you like the whole cyborg problematic (who draws the line that separates humans from robots); a cool female protagonist; cyberpunk action but are also seeking a less romantic story watch, Ghost In The Shell.

Omurqi Omurqi says...

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.

Battle Angel Alita and Armitage both exude a cool cyberpunk style, and both characters are badasses. If you enjoy cyberpunk and dark series, there's no doubt you'll enjoy them. If you liked one, you WILL like the other, hands down.

MalteseFalcon MalteseFalcon says...

Battle Angel Alita and Armitage III are both series that intermingle action with philisophical debate. Cyberpunk futures where robots are indestinguishable from humanity, each series explores what it means to be human and what future robots and humans can find together. If you enjoyed one series, you are more than likely to enjoy the other.

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.

Appleseed and Armitage are perfectly matched for each other. The animation style might look drastically different, but both are amazing cyberpunk stories that will capture your attention. If you like cyberpunk and darkness, why not check these out??

fiola fiola says...

The story of both this movies revolves around humanity creating new forms of life enhancing humanity itself and then the fear and hate to the beings they created. They also share the subject of these new races reproduction, as well as a great deal of action, a hardcore girl and a hardcore boyfriend where one of them is a cyborg.

What will happen if we can replace human bodies with machine and keep our conscience. Would your loved ones still love you? Would you be the same? What if your a robot with develops a conscience? How do you know you were human in the first place?

Cyber City Oedo 808

Cyber City Oedo 808

In the year 2808, criminals are no longer just wasting space in prison cells. The Cyber Police have turned to using these “patrons” by giving them a choice. Their sentence, or to work with them to catch other criminals and knock some years off their sentence. But getting off easy isn't, as each criminal is fitted with booby trapped collar that operates on a 24 hour cycle, stopped ONLY if they capture their intended targets. As time runs out on each case, someone's head must roll... the target's, or their own!

Both Armitage and Cyber City are serious cyberpunk - and both have that slightly retro edge that marks classic cyberpunk. Cyber City is quite gritty and it concentrates on the task at hand; whilst Armitage builds up a bit more back story on the characters. Both are enjoyable and worth watching.

Ryvius Ryvius says...

Two of the better classic cyberpunk OVA's that I've seen. Simply put if you like old, gritty, cyberpunk with adult themes, great action, etc, you'll enjoy both.

Ran Ran says...

Both Paraside Dolls and Armitage III are taking place in a cyberpunk world, in which robots and humans coexist. The nature of robots reached a point where they can claim a citizenship like humans, and this question is dealt with through murder cases, and criminal activity.

absolute absolute says...

Armitage III and Parasite Dolls are about androids in a world of humans. In both series you can see a kind of investigations about murders involving robots. Style and plots are on the same level and I think whoever liked one could like the other too.
