Both anime take place in a similar dystopian future, and deal with racism, to some extent. In S-Cry-Ed those born with special powers are hated and feared, and in Armitage III it is the same, but with cyborgs. S-Cry-Ed has more of a cheesy, yet enjoyable, superpower approach to this while Armitage III handles it in a much more mature way.

Animatrix

Witness the true beginning of the Matrix: how men created the machines and how those machines stood up against their masters, and the effects of the great war that waged between them, which in the end led to the fall of mankind. Watch the ship Osiris and its efforts to warn the remaining humans of the imminent attack; follow a champion who happens to break free from the Matrix; explore the exploitation of a glitch in the overall system; observe the story of the Kid and how he was found by Neo; travel with an investigator who tracks the well-known hacker Trinity; and learn the secrets of the Matrix in other wondrous ways.

Armitage is cyberpunk defined - it's slick, sexy, gritty, and set in a post-apocalyptic world; oh, and did I mention the lead character is a robot? Animatrix is undoubtedly much more gorgeous, being made many years in the future. Though this might seem to be a strange recommendation to some, I strongly feel that the type of person who likes Animatrix's grim and gorgeous look at a world overrun by machines will love the cyberpunk elements of Armitage, and vice versa.

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.

Both of these are old cyberpunk OVAs, involving corruption in government, deadly robots, sexy girls, and an adequate slice of action. Armitage III has more when it comes to story and characters, but Black Magic M-66 one-ups it on the action quotient.
