One day, when two patients in desperate need of emergency surgery are wheeled into his hospital, Tenma faces a terrible choice of saving the orphaned boy who came first or the mayor of Düsseldorf, whose recovery would raise the hospital's profile and boost his own career. Against the demands of his superior, Tenma does what he believes is right and saves the child. However, his decision not only damages his prospects, but unleashes a chain of events so horrific that it might have come from the depths of his worst nightmares.

Both anime are physchological thrillers.They both have a good dosage of philosophy, Lelouch is trying to take over the world and the main character of Monster is trying to stop the world from being taken over.

They Both have excellent, brilliant written plots, and are very similar, without you feeling ripped off because they seem copied.

This is the anime i would recommend the MOST to anyone, it is SO underwatched it isnt even funny.

Both of these anime have an anti-hero, someone that goes against society to take down a greater evil. Both include some rather interesting side characters, a bizarre sibling bond, and a society in need of saving. If you like suspense, psychological drama, and tactical protagonists, these two are for you.

In both series the main charictar fights agenst the government using special powers to protect someone they love (their sisters actually). Both series are great and fun to watch.

Zalis Zalis says...

These two shows feature consistantly-escalating superpowers in conflict; Scryed with psychic materialization abilities, Code Geass with upgrading mecha. The main characters fight battles with long odds against overwhelmingly powerful established entities. Both Code Geass and Scryed feature over-the-top drama, lots of yelling, bitter rivalries, explosions, plot twist after plot twist, warped facial expressions, tragic character deaths and sacrifices, and bombastic musical scores that keep the blood pumping. If can find something absurd yet cool and entertaining at the same time, you'll be right at home with either of these anime.

As a bonus, Code Geass and Scryed share the same animation studio (Sunrise), director (Goro Taniguichi), and significant portions of their English dub casts.

the main characters in the shows were fighting for the same things. also about gaining controll over a certain area that's being controlled by idiots.

Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

TheVampireLastat TheVampireLastat says...

First off any one who loved eather series based off of the deep underlying social and political issues will love the other. bolth series deal with political,social,and worldly issues. Code geass is a whole lot longer and you might enjoy it better because of this. But bolth shows protagonist are amazing self sacraficing heros. Though i find Akira a little more upfront with his heroism. meaning for the most part you know what he is doing, but with lelouch you never know what he is doing.I am sure if you love heroes of the people you will love bolth series.

HollowNobody HollowNobody says...

Both Eden of the East and Code Geass focus on character that intends to change the world by becoming a scapegoat for social problems. In both shows the main character creates a villainous persona that the masses loathe and consequently unite against.

Sheex Sheex says...

Though the settings and premises are quite different, Code Geass and Baldr Force can be linked.  The characters of Toru and Lelouch are surprisingly similar, with both manipulating others in order to exact revenge.  The two series carry the same general feel and style, so if you enjoyed one you likely will enjoy the other.

coffeebreath coffeebreath says...

In either of these anime if you enjoyed the element of military battling terrorists in mecha then check the other out! Both have fairly intricate sci-fi orientated plots propelled by revenge that deliver many twists. BALDR is a lot darker though, Geass suffers from flamboyant theatrics.

Starship Operators

Starship Operators

When the oppressive Kingdom suddenly conquers the planet Kibi, a group of space cadets are stranded aboard the spaceship Amaterasu. With no money or power, the crew is funded by the Space Channel TV station… for a price. For though they are given the money to buy the Amaterasu and battle the Kingdom, Shinon and the rest of the cadets must also become reality TV stars, allowing the network to dictate how they look, how they fight, and how they react when faced with the horrors of death. For the cadets aboard the Amaterasu, the battle has just begun...

Starship Operators doesn't have the kind of depth that Code Geass does, but they still have quite a bit in common. For one, combat in both is largely tactics-oriented, with the focus being on outdoing the opponent more mentally than physically. In addition to that, both anime take a good look at politics, including the power of the media. If these are some of the things you liked about one of these shows, consider giving the other a try.

2007digitalboy 2007digitalboy says...

It's rare for me to make a reccommendation that's already been done, but this one really needs to be said again. If you've ever picked up a tactics game and fought on for hours with nothing but your brain for support, you will likely appreciate the sort of combat featured in these two anime. Starship Operators is all about stratgizing a plan beforehand and then putting things into action like a turn-based strategy game while Code Geass is more like an RTS, having the action play out while the strategy is worked around it. Both make for some high-tension battles that are both eye-opening and a joy to watch unfold.
