Tsubasa Chronicle

Tsubasa Chronicle

The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country. As a result, Sakura's memories are scattered to different dimensions, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...

Even if the series are completely different in plotlines, times, and genres, they are still closely related in drawing style, characters, and sound. It's a long shot, but I have a feeling you would enjoy Tsubasa Chronicle as well.

Toward the Terra TV

Toward the Terra TV

Centuries ago, humanity carelessly ravaged the Earth’s environment, forcing them to leave and form a colony elsewhere. To prevent the same mistakes from happening again, they allow a supercomputer to run their lives. Children are genetically engineered and at the age of fourteen take ‘adulthood exams’, a process whereby the supercomputer ensures they are suitable for membership in this perfect society. Those who pass have their memories erased and are guided into the next stage of their life; those who fail are immediately destroyed. Jomy is a boy about to take his adulthood exams, but things go terribly wrong when a man wreathed in light interrupts the process. He is a Mu -- an aberration, a new generation of human with extraordinary powers usually detected and eliminated by the supercomputer. This man tells Jomy he too is a Mu and introduces him to the Mu society. They are a rebel group in hiding from the oppressive human regime, who live in the hope that they will find a life of peace on Earth some day. Can Jomy leave behind all that he has known, come to terms with his awakening powers, and help the Mu return to their beloved Terra?

I recommend Toward the Terra after Code Geass because I think you are looking for another intelligent sci-fi anime that offers similar levels of emotional engagement, asks difficult questions, and has imperfect protagonists. Whilst Code Geass leans heavily on shocking twists, Toward the Terra is a subtler, more epic look at humanity's potential and pitfalls. Code Geass will have you gasping at the end of every episode; Toward the Terra will have you choked up or cheering. This doesn't mean there aren't stunning battles involved - just swap the mecha for space ships and psychic powers. Anyway, I regard these two as equally powerful.

GANTZ

GANTZ

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.

Both series is about fighting for freedom, even if they must do things they not normally would do to gain it. Both boys also figth for people they love and wants to save. They must both kill for their own sake and others. Even if the plot isn't too alike, they series have this same air about tham that will capture you, so if you love one, and still have the same taste in anime, you will surely love the other ass well.

Mobile Suit Gundam

Mobile Suit Gundam

The year is Universal Century 0079 and mankind is yet again at war. The space colony Side 3 has declared itself the Principality of Zeon and has separated itself from the Earth Federation. In a raid on the colony Side 7, Zeon troops force a band of civilians, military recruits and one green ensign to escape on a previously unseen class of ship with prototype Federation mobile suits. Among them is Amuro Ray, who piloted the Gundam during the raid on Side 7. Unfortunately, his mastery of it earns him the responsibility of using it in the war against Zeon...

Nohansen Nohansen says...

Ever since Yoshiyuki Tomino's Mobile Suit Gundam changed the face of the mecha genre, every other iteration of the series has featured a distinct take on the original's characters, events and motifs but has the same underlying themes of politics, human rights and discrimination.

Code Geass is the best new Gundam series that never was. The political background parallels the events of the One Year War, right down to the introduction of mobile weapons at a turning point of the campaign. The protagonists Suzaku Kururugi and Lelouch Lamperouge are analogues of Amuro Ray and Char Aznable, and the Britannian Empire bears more than a passing resemblance to the Principality of Zeon.

So before you go joining the Rebellion, see where it all began. If nothing else, watching both series is a good exercise in critical thinking.

Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid

But a shadow looms over their happy days as Sousuke's employer, the private army called Mithril, is attacked by a new unknown enemy. Suddenly outgunned, can Mithril afford to keep one of their best playing around?

Code Geass and Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid both skillfully mix mecha with supernatural. Compelling stories with plenty of action and jaw dropping moments. Both protagonists are calm and collected on the battlefield, but always seem to get into trouble when facing girls off of it.
