In the year 3567, the human race has lost their once technologically-advanced world due to their negligence with the planet. Now, their lives are in jeopardy when machines known as Gardeners are sent from the moon to destroy all mankind. Tokito Aizawa is a hunter who makes a living by destroying Gardeners and selling them for parts, but his life otherwise is fairly normal – until now. One day, while in town, Tokito meets a mysterious girl named Tea who calls him by the name "Koichi"; and in the midst of confusion, a large group of Gardeners suddenly attack the city. Tea then grants an unseen type of machine called "Silver" to Tokito – a machine that might be mankind’s best hope of evading destruction...
Girls sacrifice their past, present, and future in order to become nonhumans/mechas in these sci-fi tales about females wanting to protect who is important to them - a guy. The males are fairly useless/pathetic in these for forcing the battling to take place between others (the girls they like). Includes slight romance in each.
Average, boring, and nothing special; this is how Shiratori Kuu feels about herself and her life as a high school student in Academia. On what begins as any other day, Kuu's life is spun upside down when a new student transfers to her class. As soon as she sees his face, she is astonished, for this is no ordinary boy – he looks just like the prince she has dreamt of for so long! He extends a hand to her and repeats the words she has somehow heard before, "Lets go... Together." But it is never that easy, is it? A world that seemed so dull is now torn apart by a whirlwind of love and hate, and the conflict that plagues all those involved.

These series have a really similar atmosphere and share some themes and devices. Both see the story of a boy surrounded by females with supernatural powers who have to deal with various organization of sorts that wish to control their unique abilities. They also have in common the action with some innuendo and slice-of-life segment formula, some similar characters and some problems with the pacing of the episodes.
Overall I think those who can stand the flaws and still enjoy one of them will be more or less satisfied with the other.
In the year 2019, the Robotics Club of Central Tanegashima High School has only one goal in mind: to create a working replica of the giant anime robot Gunvarrel! But doing so isn’t easy as the club only has two members: Aki, who took over the project from her now-graduated sister; and Kai, a lazy gamer who’d rather be elsewhere. What’s worse, the school’s vice principal has decided their club is a waste of school funds and plans to shut them down! Now, the duo must convince her otherwise by winning a fighting robot tournament and gaining new, machine-savvy members, but when Kai accidentally stumbles upon an unbelievable conspiracy, the Robotics Club becomes the least of his concerns...
