Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
Assuming you loved the shounen action and gorgeous stylish animation, the zany 70s concept, I highly recomment Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann. One thing to note is that Gurren-Lagann is far crazier, more spastic, but also has a more powerful story that is gripping from beginning to end. Gurren-Lagann, like Casshern Sins, has style by the bucket-load, and its shounen approach is far more brazen. Worth checking out if you want to keep the style and action of Casshern but want to discard the episodic philosophising.
In a dystopic future, the Mir space station fell from space for an unknown reason -- bringing with it a death sentence for every man on Earth. Women have adapted to the loss and for the most part, are living their lives in peace, but bio terrorism is on the rise and the women of Japan need protectors. Hitomi Landsknecht is the leader of a group of such protectors, but she and her comrades will soon discover the new technology known as "ICE". Mysterious and unknown, it is somehow related to males being born again – an occurrence which may signal the rise of humanity once again. However, the technology may also create a monster and destroy what is left of womankind. Can the remaining females change their destiny or will it be too late?
Two siblings, Kiyoko and Tatsuya, live in a future reshaped by a terrorist attack known only as "Twin X". In this terrible new world, advanced technology such as computers and radios no longer function and even the very sky has become something terrifyingly alien. With the siblings' mother dead, they are hunted by loan sharks who want recompense for her debt as well as a mysterious Countess who wants them for her own reasons. Even worse, they are also coveted by their father, the terrorist who caused the "Twin X", Gilgamesh!
The year is 20XX. Reploids - thinking robots based on the design of 'Megaman X' - work side by side with humans in relative harmony. Rogue reploids, which are prone to becoming violent for no reason, are generally few and far between; however, an abnormal rise in 'rogue' activity has now swept the city and only two elite Maverick Hunters can save the day - the dynamic duo, X and Zero! As their investigation continues and rogue activity increases, X and Zero can't help but feel they are being deliberately misled. With time running out and rogue reploids on the verge of destroying the city, can our heroes track down and thwart the villain before it is too late?
MegaMan X and Casshern Sins are quite similar even though their stories are different. First off, both of them have a cyborg protagonist who is designed for fighting. (Fighting styles are different though) Secondly, both series feature a world in which cyborgs live alongside with humans, almost as equals. It also seems that the human population has decreased in both of them.
Character desing is also something worth noting, since the main characters (X and Casshern) look very much alike.
In an experimental city of despair and carnage, ORGAN will do anything necessary to gain power and wealth. Unfortunately for one underground boxer who was mutilated, a rogue doctor has given him what ORGAN specializes in and he despises: Texhnolyze body parts. Will these cybernetic appendages help exact his revenge upon the one who made him this way?
The two series, despite their differences, have a key similarity, which only becomes apparent well into the episodes. Both with Casshern Sins and Texhnolyze, the focus eventually shifts to the struggle against the inevitable. Without spoiling anything, I have to say that a great deal of information is required, fully, to understand this and the final, and most important, pieces of the puzzle can only be acquired by concluding the two series. It is safe to say that with a little difference, about 3/5 of the episodes of both titles set the stage.
It is not recommended to attempt to watch either one of the two without the requisite patience and here is a caveat: they accelerate very slowly towards the ultimate conclusion. It is also not recommended to watch an episode a day or even two or three, especially with Texhnolyze. The reason is simply that the intensity of the emotions conjured up would be diminished if not negated altogether.
Provided the above advice is not disregarded, it is more likely than not that the viewer will derive a good degree of pleasure with a bit of emotional masochism of the intellectual variety.
