In a bleak look at the future, Avenger takes place in a desolate wasteland filled with domed cities. Fighters from each town battle each other for power and prestige. Avenger follows the path of Leila, one of these fighters, as well as Nei, a young being called a "doll" (an android created to live with and serve humans), as they leave their home city, travelling into the wasteland.
In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?
I totally agree with other reviewers - look as you like, but the atmosphere is similiar. Fush Leila and Nei together and you'll get the main char of
.hack : depressed, powerful yet in need of saving, silent, with dark past..
well you get the picture.
Also, is you think that opening and ending songs of Avenger there great
wait till you hear .hack's soundtrack.
Both shows where made by the same studio plus both feature very similar animation and music, not to mention feel as well. Though it should be noted that Avenger is shorter and thus events are resolved much quicker. The chances of liking one and not another is very unlikely, so give it a try.
Both anime are more story and character driven then action driven. They tend to have slow moments, with little action and a lot of plot and/or character development. However it means that they both have detailed and good stories and when the action does show up it's good.
Mireille Bouqet has become a reputable assassin working in France. However, all changes after she meets Kirika, a mysterious young girl who knows nothing about her past but possesses killing skills that dwarf hers. Further intrigue unfolds as both characters explore their shadowy past and come to a head with a clandestine organization that seeks to control destiny itself.
More BeeTrain goodness here for you: their classical charades, their outstanding colouring and Yuki Kajiura's awesome OSTs won't be the only thing required to label an anime as a masterpiece, but they surely hep a lot!
Yeah, superficially, these are two Bee Train anime with identical character design/animation and very similar soundtracks, both complete with annoying Ali Project OPs.
Underneath the obvious, these are two slow-burners jam-packed with pretentious dialogue and boring characters that at times feel like they're going somewhere but you'll be lucky if you still care about them when they get there. The plots are convoluted, at times utterly cryptic, the action scenes are very sterile and planned too closely. Though, for both the action scenes are are highlight (except Noir's get rather repetitive). In both anime the characters are on a voyage of self-discovery amid violence and corruption.
Seriously, if you liked either of these I think you'd "get" the other at least, if not really enjoy them. I didn't really "get" either. Good luck.
Among the garbage dumped down from the mysterious aerial city of Zalem, a new life is found. Restored by a brilliant cyberneticist, a young girl named Gally struggles to find her own place in the world, to learn the extent of her own deadly abilities and to discover that which makes her truly human: love.
Ellis is a young girl who possesses a strange ability to manipulate particles, and has an unfortunate case of amnesia. After accidentally killing a professor in the middle of an experiment, Ellis fled to Mexico and lived under the care of an old lady for many years, but her past has finally caught up with her; there's a price on her head, and men trying to capture her, dead or alive. She meets the bounty hunter Nadie, who befriends her and helps her escape; and together, they decide to travel south to Winay Marka, “The Land of Eternity”, to find clues about Ellis’ past. What’s the origin of Ellis’ powers, and what does “Project Leviathan” have to do with it?
Two female protagonists, one older and one younger. The older one protecting the younger one with amazing skills and the younger one harboring a secret. From the music to the animation and to the themes, both share more then enough for someone to like both easily. I personally liked El Cazador de la Bruja more though.
In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".
on the surface they may look different, because they are drawn differently (Ergo Proxy is really dark and atmospheric whereas Avenger has more of a He-Man-like flair) but in essence, the plots of Ergo Proxy and Avenger are ridiculously similar
main character, haunted by his/her past & accompanied by an insanely cute robot kid travels around the dome cities of a devastated world, where humans appear to have no future
there's more, i really don't wanna go into details and spoil more
just see for yourself
