Synopsis:

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.

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. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. 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

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.

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

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
  • Movie (1 ep x 117 min)
  • 1984

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.

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.

Origin: Spirits of the Past

Origin: Spirits of the Past
  • Movie (1 ep x 95 min)
  • 2006

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.

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.

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
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.
