King of Thorn

King of Thorn

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.

Kruszer Kruszer says...

Both of these have similar premises of diseased characters put into cold sleep and being rudely awakened into the middle of a disaster.

Zaion ~i wish you were here~

Zaion ~i wish you were here~

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.

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.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

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.

Archetypes Forces

Truly, Archetypes Forces and Blue Gender share a common thread of a horrific type sci-fi plot that will keep you on your toes. Twists abound in both series, and are generally compelling and interesting. I highly think you'd like one if you liked the other.

XMrNiceguyX XMrNiceguyX says...

Aboslutely a perfect rec for eachoter. Both feature unexpected twist, have a certian romance undertone and have, most improtantly of all: alot of aliens and quite some gore. The only main difference is that Blue Gender has fairly dated art and animation, while Archetypes Forces is completely computer generated

Blue Seed

Blue Seed

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.

XMrNiceguyX XMrNiceguyX says...

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.

Claymore

Claymore

In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh.

Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?

I love anime that has violence and blood, and a little bit of romance. I'm not sure if you enjoy that sort of a thing, but Claymore and Blue Gender are two of the best. :)

freeintheend freeintheend says...

Both Blue Gender and Claymore are focused around a girl working for a large militant or soldire like organization leading a boy through a world he is unfamiliar with. In both cases the plots have satisfying and tragic developements and this doesnt even cover the fact that in both cases they are constantly slaying armies of progresivly fiercer monsters in a shower of blood.
