Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. 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.
Medusa is a mysterious illness which causes the body to petrify shortly after infection, found throughout the world and steadily increasing the death toll. In order to combat the disease, 160 lottery winners were chosen to be frozen until a cure could be found, one of whom is Kasumi - a twin whose sibling was not one of the chosen. Along with a group of others Kasumi awakens from her cryogenic chamber, but not to the same world she left it: prehistoric monsters roam the now-abandoned castle and eat the survivors, while endless giant thorns rise all around them. Against all odds, Kasumi and the others must now try to survive the horror of their situation and discover the truth behind what's happening, all the while waiting for the Medusa to finally claim their lives...
Both King of Thorn and Blue Gender feature a protagonist that is diagnosed with an incurable disease. They then go into a cyrogenic sleep of somekind, before being woken up to find everything around them is in a state of total chaos.
If you enjoyed the plotline of one, you'll likely enjoy the other. Both are fantastic series.
Mysterious and incurable disease, cyrogenic sleep until cure is found, awaken in a post apocalyptic future (moreso in gender)....fight monsters....fight lots of monsters.
Imo, blue gender was 10x better and made way more sense.
Both of these have similar premises of diseased characters put into cold sleep and being rudely awakened into the middle of a disaster.
Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans – creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city's walls, but when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever...
Both shows feature some really well executed struggle for survival against their unknown enemies. In both series, humanity is almost extinct and the general feeling of hopelessness is present in both. Even so, the focus of both shows is on the characters that defend humanity in one way or another. So, because of similar themes and quite similar, yet different setting, I’d say that anyone who enjoyed one could at least check out the other.
Similar themes, both shows are great, not much more to say. All in all I would say blue gender is better as it isnt ongoing and is complete and satisfying as a series.
Blue Gender and Attack on Titan feature plenty of violence and madness topped with amazing plots and that's just what might make them so good. Both main male leads have amazing abilitites and a great cast of characters (don't get too attached :). Blue Gender touches on the romance much more than Attack on Titan and even gives us a bit of insight on what actually goes on behind the scenes when soldiers aren't fighting, which I wish that Attack on Titan would do more. Outside of that difference expect great stories and how the main characters overcome all odds for survival. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.
In the present time, the meteorite-based M-34 virus is being spread at a horrific pace: infecting thousands, and mutating their bodies into alien-like creatures who destroy everyone in their path. While NOA -- an elite team of cybernetic soldiers -- work to contain the threat, a new weapon named Ai is being trained to destroy the virus once and for all. Unknown to all are her true powers -- especially once she falls in love with NOA member Yuji. Time is running out.. who will inherit the earth? The virus, or humanity?
Both of these series contain a heroine, who is able to save the world, and her love. "i wish you were here" and "Blue Gender" both have a male lead character, who forcefully changes into something... mutant.. by the will of the Earth. In general, these series both touch on the issues of the world perhaps coming to an end, and are both excellent in general.
Besides the fact that in the beginning of Blue Gender, the main characters friend strikes an awefully close resemblance to the main character of I wish you were here... The idea of some mutated lifeform taking over the earth and trying to kill off all of mankind are rather similar. Also, the animation is fairly similar and there is a girl in each series that ends up saving the main character from his demise, but I'll let you figure that one out.
In the present, Japan is under assault by murderous creatures known as Aragami whose origin and purpose remain unknown. The fate of Japan and the world itself lies with one young woman named Momiji who bears the burden of the Kushinada -- the one who must be sacrificed to silence the Aragami forever. With the help of Mamoru Kusanagi (a human and Aragami hybrid), and an agency filled with firepower-toting bodyguards, Momiji must use her Aragami-sensing powers to help save mankind; but will she ultimately have to lose her own life to save the lives of so many others?
Blue Seed and Blue Gender have more in common than the color Blue in their title. Anyways, all the strange plant monsters in Blue Seed are a lot like the Blue in Blue Gender that are trying to destroy mankind. Of course a select handfull of people actually fight the monsters to try and save the world. There is also a huge plot theme that is similar, but I won't say more without spoiling it for you.
Both series have a clear apocalypse scenario in it. Though while Blue Gender plays after this apocalypse, Blue Seed plays a bit before that. In addition: Blue Gender involves Bugs, while Blue Seed involves plants. The romance apect of Blue Gender is waay heavier than the romance in Blue Seed.
