The huge Katvana Empire is at war with the neighboring Kioka republic. In a corner of the empire, a young man is about be caught up in the flames of war. His name is Iwata Soroku. He's lazy, a philanderer, and he hates war. He's about as far from a soldier as you can get. On his way towards the next stage of officer's qualification exams, he and his childhood friend Yatorishino Igsem encounter the nurse trainee Harouma Beckle, Mashuu Tetrijirch, a member of the old military faction, and Torwey Lemion....
Both series have a strong central character who is a great strategist, with a war involving two large nations. Striking characters, usually officers are in both series, and there's a general vibe in Aldermin that reminded me heavily of Code Geass.I won't spoil either series by makin direct comparisons, but suffice to say, if you've seen, and liked one you will probably enjoy the other
Both main characters are master strategists and badasses, stuck in war. Both worlds are fantasy, while one has Mechas other has little kawai creatures.
Both deal with main charecter's that are master strategists and that persue logic over feelings (in premise at least).
Both also have charecters that go against the way of society (Against the grain if you will)and there way of doing things.
Definitely worth a watch as these anime's have science and religion discussed which is not something you see very often, as it is more glanced at by other anime's.
4.5/5 My highest rating at least.
Touru Souma was a hacker in Steppen Wolf, a rogue group of four who caused mischief in the wired world. But during their final hacking session, they attacked the government agency known as FLAK and Touru’s friend Yuuya died in the process. Haunted by his memories, Touru vows to find the ones responsible for murdering Yuuya, even if it means he must join the enemy to do so. Further complicating the matter is the emergence of the terrorist organization Fei Dao; but the largest challenge Touru must now face is his forgotten memories – especially one involving a girl who continuously reappears in reality...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
Both series have intense mech battles and some main charaters holding part of their identities secret (Lelouch and Sayla) with family members fighting against them. Both series have the extreme/newer mechs and great battles
It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it. This series follows Public Peace Section 9, a government organization that plays behind the scenes to stop the worst of these criminals. Join Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team as they take you through an incredibly vivid world filled with plots of such depth and intrigue as is seldom seen.
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.
