Both animes encompasses some elements of mystery that satisfies anybody whoose looking for some quality anime to watch. With a decent amount of action inside and loads of mind games, this 2 animes would go hand in hand , and if you have not watched either one, nows the chance to watch it!
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.GIT has more of a futuristic feel to it. Although code geass is bassed in the future it doesnt have the si-fi feel that ghost in the shell does.
Bolth shows have heroes fighting for whats right and a free world.
The year is After Colony 195, and mankind is in the midst of a seemingly endless ongoing war between the Space Colonies and the ones who created them: the people of Earth. To give the Colonies the advantage, five mobile suits called Gundams were created. Equipped with enhanced technology and extremely talented young pilots, these are the ultimate machines of war. While Relena Peacecraft pleads for peace, Heero Yui leads the Gundams into the battle with Earth to attain it. As their personalities and visions clash, their goal is the same: freedom for all and peace at last.
Both of these series revolve around mechas, "saviors" chosen to save oppressed peoples, and a strong central character with a sense of mystery about him.
Both have charismatics characters ! A complexe story mixing personnal affair and politics. Great scenes of action. They both are not manichean, you can love characters in each faction ! And of course there are mechas !
Welcome to a world in which memories can be transferred from body to body; old painful memories can be removed and replaced with new ones, and the poor sell their bodies to the rich to survive. Waking up one day, Kaiba finds himself in a strange place with no memories of his past and a mysterious hole in his chest; the only clue as to his identity is a locket with a picture of a girl hanging from his neck. Armed with this token, Kaiba must now travel across the galaxy to discover who he is and what the girl in the locket means to him; however, his journey will bring him into contact with many people whose lives have been tragically affected by the manipulation of memories. All too soon it becomes clear that something is very wrong with this world…
Although at face value, Kaiba seems to be nothing like Code Geass, what with its older animation style and very unconventional art style, Kaiba is a story diving into many levels of mystery and drama.
The main story revolves around the character Kaiba, a young man (not a little boy!) who has lost his memory, waking up in an unfamiliar place, not knowing just who is his friend or enemy.
It involves the stories of different characters as the series goes along, bringing a deeper understanding of eah to the Viewer, which adds boundless depth to the storyline ep after ep.
Though the largest challenges of this anme for most viewers seem to be the art and the unspoken "strangeness" of the story's setting, seeing Kaiba through till the end still proves very satisfying.
Both set in sci-fi world.
Both shows are trying to tell the watcher, that you can have everything and rule the world, but at the same moment you would have nothing.
Both main characters, Popo and Lelouch try to defeat current rulers of the world and take their place. In order to do that, they lose their friends and family.
The war between the monarchical Galactic Empire and the democratic Free Planets Alliance has raged ceaselessly across the galaxy for over a century, with the fleets of both powers having fought countless battles. Currently the conflict revolves around the strategic Iserlohn Corridor, one of only two passages of space through which the two forces can access each other. Here the Empire has built the nigh-impregnable Iserlohn Fortress, whose deadly weaponry has thwarted repeated efforts by the Alliance to capture her. Phezzan, a neutral mercantile state, controls the other corridor. The long war has resulted in an indecisive stalemate, but there are two men from the two worlds who will change everything: Wen-Li Yang, a gifted strategist from the Alliance who wants nothing more than to retire and be a historian; and Reinhard von Lohengramm, a man from the Empire whose ambition knows no bounds. Their loves, struggles, triumphs and failures play across an interstellar stage of intrigue, war and death.
If you enjoyed the political machinations and personalities that drove the epic events of Code Geass, then be sure to watch Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Galactic Heroes is a slower paced, grander affair, and while it offers aged visuals and less exciting battles, it takes its time to flesh out its world with deeper character and history. Those who invest into its 110 episodes and films will not be dissapointed.
League of the Galactic Heroes and Code geass Characters are very similar in ways, both Lelouch and Prince Loghengramm are trying to make the future better, while Yang Wenli and Suzaku are trying to improve the present, while both anime present the goal of Unifying the world/universe in there storylines, both anime have very compelling storylines and if you loved one there should be a 99.9% of you enjoying the other!!!
One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...
Both of these anime delve into the idea that often, great power comes at a price. With brilliant storytelling and plenty of psychological drama, these series are very much alike.
The main similarity between both Code Geass and Madoka Magica is that the plots invovle characters entering into contracts with mysterious contractors to obtain great characters. However, upon obtaining these powers the characters eventually fall prey to the powers that they have obtained. The situations of both Lelouch from Code Geass and Sayaka from Madoka Magica are comparable to one another since both characters enter contracts to obtain special powers, only for them to learn the truth behind their contracts, try to use powers that isolate them to help people, and eventually fall prey to their powers. While the plots are different, the reason why if you enjoyed one you'd like the other is that the two plots share similar themes, and are both serious takes on usually non-serious genres (the mecha in Code Geass and the magical girl in Madoka Magica).
