With so many similarities in setting and plot devices (In both anime, the MC received a supernatural power, and many more), these two represent each other quite well. Both are mecha anime that play on a really big scale, featuring a huge cast of characters stuck inside a war between two nations. Packed with action, politics and supernatural, it’s pretty clear that those two draw the same kind of audience. If you liked one of these two, then there’s a good chance you might like the other one.
They both take themselves WAAAAY too seriously. The 2nd seasons escalate solid, if somewhat, convoluted plots to insane levels of stupidity.
I like both series, but you should try and focus more on the action and characters (some of them anyway), otherwise you'll just get annoyed.
With over 20 million players worldwide, Elder Tale is one of the hottest online RPGs. At least, it used to be only a game, until the fateful day that tens of thousands of players became stuck in the virtual world, unable to log out. For these would-be knights, healers and magicians, Elder Tale is no longer a hobby, it’s a reality, complete with tasteless in-game food, revivals upon death, and boring NPC conversations! With no other options than to accept their fates, the analytical Shiroe, perverted-and-proud Naotsugu, tiny and adorable Akatsuki and other new friends must adjust to their new lives in Elder Tale, avoiding player killers and monsters along the way!
Though the general subject of both titles is different, I found some similarities in those. Both main characters are vary inteligent and great strategists and also both gain several amount of power and authority during the setting of the plot. Code Geass as like Log Horizon serve a very interesting, thilling plot that you would follow breathlessly from the begining to the very end.
Both anime's feature a stong willful protagonist. This protagonist is a bit of an anti-hero, but means well. In both cases the protagonist is a strategic expert.
The anime's story takes place in a world in which magic is not a fairy tale, but has existed for nearly one hundred years. In the spring, the Private Magic University Affiliated High School (Magic High School for short) is welcoming its new students, and names the top incoming student with the best grades the Bloom. The student called the Weed is the Bloom's replacement. Siblings Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are designated as the Weed and Bloom, respectively. Tatsuya is a young man who always has a farsighted expression, and Miyuki is a young woman who feels far more for her brother than sibling love. Since the day the two entered the gates of the elite school, the establishment's peaceful days have become chaotic.
From the first episode of the anime "The Irregular at Magic High School" I knew that has many similarities with Code Geass.
Bot animes have the same vibe, are more action based with a little romance and they have great animation style.
You should definitely check them both!
A brother loving his sister to bits and going as far as killing while working on gaining power. That's what both animes have in common. Also the ways how the main male characters of these animes are using super complex strategy in order to achive their goals.
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...
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.
