In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.

Blue Gender and A Wind Named Amnesia definitely have a similar feel to them. The world being destroyed? Check. Humans having all sorts of problems due to this? Check. Plus, both just have a really moody, dark feel in general. I enjoyed both as well.

Both animes take place on Earth with very few humans on it. Humanity is about to disapear. The ambience is very peaceful on both on them.


Both A Wind Named Amnesia and Blue gender revolve around stories that occur after the world met some kind of end. In Blue Gender, insects known as Blue have overrun the world and killed most of the population, while in A Wind Named Amnesia, a mysterious wind blew throughout the world one day, erasing the memories of every person on Earth. In both worlds, people still live on, but life no longer resembles what it used to. 

However, while both of these works share a similar story, they also share the same atmoshere and emotional tone. While Blue Gender is significantly darker and more violent than A Wind Named Amnesia, they both show how the changes their worlds have undergone have affected people and how they live their lives.

Blue Gender is a much longer work than A Wind Named Amnesia, but I highly recommend both to anyone who enjoys a good post-apocalyptic story.


Society has been destroyed, the last of humanity is scattered and in a desperate situation. A lone survior meets a woman and they have to travel through the wasteland the world has become. They face many horrors situations along the way. Both Blue Gender and A Wind Named Amnesia have a dark opressive feeling to them.

Blue Gender is a true survial horror anime with lots of action. Amnesia is slower and more philosophical, but both anime share enough in atmosphere and set up that if you liked one you should check out the other.



Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?

I know this might seem like a weird parallel, but Berserk was the only other series I could think of that was as violent and gorey as Blue Gender, and vice-versa. The overuse of gore in killing the aliens in Blue Gender is much like all the blood and whatnot from Berserk. The other thing that is true is the strong plot that each series has. Different plot, but both excel and excellent character development and a great progressive storyline. These are 2 of my favorite series of all time! ^_^ watch them!!
Both of these series, Berserk and Blue Gender, are very action packed but at the same time have a substantial storyline to back up the action scenes. These are great series and anyone who liked Berserk would definetly like Blue Gender...

im not quite sure why, but i got the same feeling when watching both berserk and blue gender. both were darker for sure but i think it was more how i just couldnt stop watching either, partially out of concern for the characters. berserk was noticably better but i think if you enjoyed one then the others a safe bet.


I agree that both of these animes are action packed, but what really makes them akin is the atmosphere created by the show as a whole. All the while when watching you'll be left with this persistent forboding feeling that some is just about to go awry... and it often does, in unexpected ways. Both are wonderful animes that will really leave you pulling for the protaganists.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Both NGE and BG are series were the main characters fight monsters with the help of mecha armor. Both series focus on the "darker" side of humanity and psycology. With a heavy plot and geat surroundings they both make u whanting to know more about them.
this is similar to Neon in that the pair of series are dealing with character(s) with psycological problems and they have to fight opposing enemies to save mankind. With Blue Gender it mainly conscentrates on one mans psycological problems as opposed to Neon who has bits of all the main character's problems

If you enjoyed Blue Gender and you're looking for other series with an unknown species threatening earth then look no further. Neon Genesis Evangelion like Blue Gender deals with in the same scenario. Like the Sci-fi genre Blue Gender, Neon Genesis Evangelion uses the human powered mechs to aid in annihilating the earth's threat.


Do you love Mecha's and characters with actual story? Probably you will like one of these then or both.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of the classics in the genre but you need a bit deep analysing skills if you want get more out of this anime. In the other hand Blue Gender is more forward about that and makes sure viewer understands what is going on.

Well both animes have a lot in common but they're still very different from each other. Probably the main element of the show is the development of the protagonist male character in the anime and how he affects people around him and how he learns new things from others.

Earth Girl Arjuna

Earth Girl Arjuna and Blue Gender both have creepy similarities about their plotlines, that I can't give away, because it would be a massive spoiler for both series ;). Both have animation that I thoroughly enjoyed, and a captivating storyline which gets to you. Blue Gender *definitely* is a lot more focused on violence/gore, while Earth Girl Arjuna tends to focus on the Earth dying, scenes of nature, etc.
Of course Blue Gender and Earth Girl Arjuna are completely different story, and different animation, however their is a theme within both series that will be apparently clear AFTER you watch them.

As in both series the main character develop theire character during the series, you'll also find that the philosophy behind it all is leaning on the same principals.

Boths series will put you on thinking a whole bit about that piece of dirt we call home.

Earth Girl Arjuna and Blue Gender let you see the struggle of one character and his loved ones with the situation they find themeselves forced into, you'll notice that in Blue Gender the plotline is more extensive and you'll find more characters wich all add theire part to the story, without any

But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.

The gore factor in the 2 series are very similiar, so if you don't mind seeing it or maybe you even like it, then it's my recommendation to watch both.


Both series are about humans fighting for their lives against alien looking creature. If you don't fight, you'll die, that's the situation for the charaters in these animes. In both series several of the charaters die horribly or get somewhat crazy and awfully trigger happy, as the blood, gore and bullets fly. If you like one, you'd surly like the other.


For the simple fact that both animes have male protagonist that have simple lives and are thrown into the mist of chaos.  Both series are intense emotional psychological thrillers that involve the main characters to survive immense danger on a daily basis.
