Soma Toru was a hacker in Steppen Wolf, a rogue group of four who caused mischief in the wired world. But during their final hacking session, they attacked the government agency known as FLAK and Toru’s friend Yuya died in the process. Haunted by his memories, Toru vows to find the ones responsible for murdering Yuya, even if it means he must join the enemy to do so. Further complicating the matter is the emergence of the terrorist organization Fei Dao; but the largest challenge Toru must now face is his forgotten memories – especially one involving a girl who continuously reappears in reality...
It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it. This series follows Public Peace Section 9, a government organization that plays behind the scenes to stop the worst of these criminals. Join Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team as they take you through an incredibly vivid world filled with plots of such depth and intrigue as is seldom seen.
There's not much to tell about these show: cyberpunk fan, you'll find much more cyber than punk, but rest assured you won't regret watching it°°°/
And a well-thought plot is surely a nice plus :)!
Because both have a story that sucks you in, its very complex and stil amusing.
not for the people looking for a laugh but if you want a serieusly good story you should watch both.
Both of these series deal with similar sci-fi issues of things like the internet/'net', and have similar ways of exploring these environments through what they call "diving". Also, they both have consequences to what happens when you spend too much time on the net. If you like the exploration near-dystopian possibilities, then either series will be of interest to you.
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Though the settings and premises are quite different, Code Geass and Baldr Force can be linked. The characters of Toru and Lelouch are surprisingly similar, with both manipulating others in order to exact revenge. The two series carry the same general feel and style, so if you enjoyed one you likely will enjoy the other.
In either of these anime if you enjoyed the element of military battling terrorists in mecha then check the other out! Both have fairly intricate sci-fi orientated plots propelled by revenge that deliver many twists. BALDR is a lot darker though, Geass suffers from flamboyant theatrics.
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?
The .hack series lacks much of the action, and even the emotional charge, that Baldr Force manages to distill into its few episodes. However, the similarities abound, with characters expressing themselves, playing, living and even dying, in a virtual world.
I actually bought Baldr Forces DVD because it looked like dot hack from the cover since it looked all virtual and stuff. Baldr force has A.I.s, a boundary between real and virtual that definately has been crossed. It also has a character trapped between the virtual world and the real world, much like .hack//signs main character, Tsukasa. These two series are very similar, but also have their own appeal that wont make them seem exactly the same. If you like one of these, do yourself a favor and check the other out.
Freed from his longtime prison, Belldandy's mentor Celestin is once again trying to overthrow the Goddess System, but he can't do it without her. To "help" her decide anew whether to join him, he blocks her memories of Keiichi. As Keiichi and company race to restore Belldandy's memory, Keiichi also has to deal with the mysterious Morgan, the one who released Celestin in the first place!
Baldr Force and AMG Movie involve a weird system with viruses, hacking, and computers, but both are considerably different in their own ways. AMG Movie has gods and goddesses, while Baldr Force doesn't.
BLAME! is a very dark and abstract set of 6 shorts which are based on the manga by Tsutomu Nihei. The "story" (if it can be called that) revolves around a man named Killy: a human living amongst clones and androids. His task, it seems, is to collect things known as "net-genes", and to help find the remaining humans that may or may not exist.
