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.

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

Speed Grapher

Speed Grapher

Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?

At first glance "Speed Grapher" and "Blue Gender" may not seem to have that much in common - but the first glance is deceptive. In fact both these anime feature a bleak outlook on the future of mankind - the reason in both cases being the humans ourselves, and our twisted desires. Both series also have a tendecy to avoid all kinds of sugar-coating, and present their stories in a manner that intends to (and succeeds to) disturb the viewer. In other words - these series have so much in common on a very fundamental level that recommending the other to a fan of one is easy.

I agree with Izmo. Both Blue Gender and Speed Grapher feature a lot of action but also back and take a look at what motivates human kind and it's basically bringing an end to itself. Add in superhuman abilitites and a love interest and you've got Speed Grapher and Blue Gender. Sex and violence peeps. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Origin: Spirits of the Past

Origin: Spirits of the Past

Agito was born into a world that is quite different than our own. Many years ago a brilliant researcher attempted to save humanity from its excessively damaged environment by altering the DNA of plants. However, these mentally-awakened plants recognized the inherent threat of humans, and attacked them; the end result was a stalemate between the forest and the few remaining human centers. Agito's home city is green with life because the forest controls it. There is an uneasy peace which is facilitated by a small number of humans that allowed the forest to alter them to be in concert with itself. Being that his father is one of those, Agito's view of the forest is not one of fear but rather one that respects the human dependency. Agito will be challenged to prove this relationship when a random event gives the humans, who still see the forest as an enemy, a new perceived advantage in their war.

Ran Ran says...

Both Origin and Blue Gender take place in a world which has been overtaken by nature. Humans have survived and are split into two categories: those who decide to live with the current situation and make the best out of it, and those who are still attached to technology and want to take their planet back. In both anime, a character suddenly awakens after having slept through all of the changes, and must decide whether to fight back for the planet or adopt a completely new lifestyle. This character will have a critical role influencing the future of the planet. Blue Gender has more mature content, but if you liked one, you're probably going to like the other too.

Both anime have main characters who find themselves unfrozen in the future to find the world as they know it has ended.

Gunparade March

Gunparade March

In the year 1945, the most terrible creatures in existence visited the earth: bug-like entities soon to be known as Phantom Beasts. In that time of peril, mankind joined together to expel the threat, only to find that conventional weapons were useless and further damaged the earth. It is now 1999, and the student-wide draft has changed the lives of thousands of teenagers across Japan. While unwillingly fighting in an endless war that started before their births, one group of friends will experience the tragedy of death and the bittersweet joy of love as they struggle to survive.

Both series have their share of Mech action and defending the humen race from bug-like monsters. But the really great thing about them is that they not only focus on action but also on humen relationships during extrem situations. To put it simple they both have a well made love story which goes great with the action sequences.

Ryuuhei Ryuuhei says...

At first, you can tell, each other are taking place in different ages, but the plot is nearly the same. But, they're not the same. Simply, if you want more action and battling with great post-apocalyptic atmosphere, choose Blue Gender, but, if you want something more focusing on romance, less gore and with some comedy in it, choose Gunparade March. However, both series are great and worth seeing.

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind

One thousand years after the Giant Warriors caused an apocalyptic event known as the seven days of fire, humans are living in constant fear of the Toxic Jungle. This ever-spreading forest is filled with poisonous plants and gigantic monstrous insects; even the very air is deadly. Nausicaa is the kind and wise princess of a small, peaceful country known as the Valley of the Wind, which has so far avoided the spread of the forest. One night a large airship containing one of the Giant Warriors crashes into the valley. The following day soldiers from the powerful nation of Tolmekia invade the Valley of the Wind to reclaim and revive the warrior. As the only one who truly believes that there is a way for humans to live alongside the insects, Nausicaa must find a way to stop the war that now threatens her people and protect the Toxic Jungle before the Tolmekians burn it to the ground.

In both Nausicaa and Blue Gender, the future is bleak.  The world has been taken over by giant bugs.  Giant insects threaten humanity's fate.  The apocalyptic situations are the same within both series.  Somewhere out there, there's a way to push back the giant insects.  Grant it, there is no blood in Nausicaa like Blue Gender but the movie is good none the less.  If you liked a hopeless future where giant bugs rule, then these both cater to your liking.  Give em' a try.

Kaorichaos Kaorichaos says...

I couldn't help but find myself thinking of Blue Gender the entire time i watched Nausicaa. Though very different especially where the age audience is considered, both have alot in common. They're both post apocolyptic, have huge bugs that are killing off the human race, and a planet that is trying to purify itself from humans.
