shalist
A movie about a somewhat futuristic world where cybernetics is becoming the norm. The emphasis is more on using brains to catch the criminals, vice having the nifty fight scenes when they're finally cornered, but if you liked Battle Angel Alita, you'll likely enjoy Ghost in the Shell as well.
Imsorrykun
yes, yes, yes, cyborgs, robots, futureistic yet rationaly real world, if your genera fits along those lines then these series are for you, you may enjoy these as much as the other. and i hope you do.
Tomte
These two anime's are quite alike, both deal with the human/cyborg issue and have great plots. Both animes leaves you longing for more.
freakzilla
Strong female cyborgs try what they can to make the world a little more free of all those criminals. Both animes tend more to the plot-type anime instead of fighting. So these two are quite alike.
NekoRocket
Battle Angel Alita and Ghost in the Shell both feature ass-kicking cybernetic women who are trying to discover where they fit in the human worlds. Stunning character designs and intriguing stories.
Deadlystrike6

Both are science fiction movies involving cyborg character elements and strong elements of corruption and the need for justice. Ghost in the Shell occurs in a world similar to ours and Battle Angel Alita creates its own universe. These are serious anime with solid character design, imaginative worlds, and compelling, engrossing storylines.

Ran

Both Battle Engine Aquila and Ghost in the Shell are (at least partly) centered on a main character being a cyborg, and her questioning regarding her status as a human being, or what's left of her humanity. Both of these anime take place in a similar kind of cyberpunk world, and although the stories and goals of the characters are diferent, both give a very similar feeling to the global tory.

JAhU

It may not seam too much, but both Battle Angel Alita and Ghost in The Shell show interesting (and somewhat similar) vision of cyborgs. While the story of BAA is not as deep as the story in GITS, it is still enjoyable. Also both shows contain gore and violence along with big number of action scenes.

If you liked one you should check the other too.

Armitage III Poly-Matrix

Armitage III Poly-Matrix
  • Movie (1 ep x 95 min)
  • 1997

The year is 2179: humans and robots have colonized Mars. A newer Third-Type robot has been designed to interact undetected in human society. That is, until a man named D'anclaude discovers their secret and starts a movement to wipe them out. Armitage is a Third-Type that works for the police with her partner Ross, and now these two must rid the planet of D'anclaude and his evil plans.

Battle Angel's main char is similar to Armitage in that they are both deadly robots that are trying to find their place in a world of humans.
freakzilla
Both Battle Angel and Armitage III concern a cyborg who protect society from other (cyborg)criminals. Since both are short there's isnt much more to add. If you like one you'll definitely like the other
kamirura
Battle angel alita really reminds me off Polymatrix. It's also about earth being colonized by robots. And a girl that works as a police and tries to hold of the robots. And there is action and love exatcly as it is in battle angel. I myself dind't really like this movie. I guess you should watch the series before you watch this. Though it's alot like Battle angel alita
TheBurningCrow
Another fairly obvious choice. Since both main characters are robots fighting to stay alive and finding their place in human society. Decent action anime on both sides.
cerberus38

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.

Battle Angel Alita and Iria have rather similar character designs and a lot of attention to minute details. I really like the strong female leads and the self discovery each character undergoes in their own kinda post-apocalyptic worlds
wickedshizuku

Both of these animes are excellent time well spent. They both give off a retro feel with a some-what gritty, but beautiful artstyle. Many inspirational phrases are said in both that leave you contimplating a persons' own worth.

JAhU

Iria and Battle Angel Alita have somewhat similar story and the main characters in both look quite alike. If you liked one you should give the other a try too.

P.S. Both of those titles suffer from "cool main character syndrome" (which means the story is a bit sucky), but BAA has a better one than IZTA.

ohtetsuo

Both Iria and Battle Angel Alita are set in dusty sci-fi worlds and follow the adventures of scrappy, young femme fatale bounty hunters. Themes of family and isolation are present in both series, as well as a similar style to the artwork. While Alita is decidedly darker in tone, fans of fast-paced action and cyberpunk undertones will no doubt love both series.

Key the Metal Idol

Key the Metal Idol

Murao Mima has created a robot daughter named Key, but after raising her for a very short time, Mima dies, leaving behind cryptic messages telling Key how she can become human. Key must struggle alone to learn the harsh lessons of life and search for the 'key' to her own dream: the power of 30,000 friends to make her a real human girl.

Truly, Key and Battle Angel Alita are frighteningly similar as far as plot and cyberpunk feel, but in general are both amazingly kickass series, period. If you like one, I guarantee you'd like the other.
TheBurningCrow
Both of these are a struggle of one girl to become what they really want to be and to discover what they really are. Both deal with robots and devestating effects of humanity.
AnarchicQ

Both anime deal with a girl's struggle to find her humanity, when all she knows is the touch of cold steel. Friendship and love are the driving forces in both of these girl's quests, and you can't help but feel they deserve the love they seek.

ohtetsuo

Key the Metal Idol and Battle Angel Alita are similar in both artistic style as well as story theme, despite being in drastically different settings. Both have to do with a robotic girl struggling to find their meaning in the world and the relationships they have with the people around them (and especially the father-daughter-like relationships with their respective creators.) Though Alita is more of a femme fatale-type character, the stories still have many parallels and would definitely appeal to eachother's fan-bases.

Metropolis

Metropolis
  • Movie (1 ep x 109 min)
  • 2001

Metropolis is a grand high-tech city-state populated by humans and robots alike. It is in these streets that Detective Shunsaku Ban and his sidekick Kenichi search for the rebel scientist Dr. Laughton who unbenounced to them, is developing a super android named Tima as a tool for the Duke of Metropolis. What starts out as a normal case turns into mayhem as the scientist is murdered, and the true plans of the Duke are finally revealed...

kamirura
Battle Angel Alita is another story of human looking robots. It's a bit different than Metropolis but this also deals with the slum and the over class.
Asgorath

While both shows differ in animation style and execution of their respective stories, there are a lot of similarities that might appeal to you if you enjoy one or the other.

Both stories deal with a young female robot having to come to terms with her existence and discover her place in life. Battle Angel Alita, as the title already suggests, focuses more of action and combat, while Metropolis focuses more on the psychological effects.

Both anime also offer you a setting in which there are various classes of human beings having to adapt. There is a struggle between the normal regular people and the upper class. And in both cases the main charcters get heavily involved in this struggle.

Metropolis does offers more "mental" substance, whereas Battle Angel Alita offers you more action.

TheGiftedMonkey

Mechanical girls trying to fit into a mixed world of man and machine. Both seek out what they were truly built for and end up finding a new unexpected emotion, love.

cerberus38

Both anime are set in a futuristic society where androids are commonplace. Both anime explore the emotions of an android and what it means to be human rather than artificial. There is also a similar theme regarding the upper and lower class citizens. While Battle Angel Alita is darker in tone, if you liked one then check out the other.
