Synopsis:

In a futuristic world, the virtual world is merely a layer on top of reality; within it, cyberpets are abundant and information is plentiful, and it is only visible by wearing special cyberglasses. In Daikoku City, this cyberspace is behaving strangely: cyberpets are going missing, dark entities known as "the Illegal" roam obsolete space that shouldn’t exist, and a large pink antivirus program known as Satchii wanders the streets, attacking both virus and pets alike. Sixth grader Yuko Okonogi has just moved to Daikoku City, and after cyberdetective children help her rescue her lost dog, she soon joins the others in a search for the truth behind these strange occurances.

Gatchaman Crowds

Gatchaman Crowds

In a world threatened by evil alien lifeforms known as the MESS, humanity's best hope lies with Gatchaman: a group of superhero fighters who are rumored to exist through urban legends, blurry pictures and second-hand hearsay. Vaguely aware of these stories, Hajime Ichinose is a teenage girl whose bizarre love of stationery has made her the perfect candidate for becoming a Gatchaman - as their suits are empowered by cosmic notebooks! Enlisted to the squad, Hajime must now team up with the stern Sugane Tachibana, aloof Jou Hibiki and other fellow beacons of justice in the ongoing battle to prevent the world from getting MESSed up!

The real world and the virtual world colide in these two titles.

But that is not the only similarity. There is a tone, and uniquienss to both titles that might feel in the same vein.

If you liked one, give the other a go.

Genshiken

Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness!

While Genshiken and Denno Coil deal with completely different subjects, they both emit similar tones throughout the series.  Both have groups of multiple characters who hang out in clubs, which results in making up most of what they do every day.  The realistic and complex characters and the slight comedy create the same feel for both series.  If you like anime that has great characters these are right for you.

Both series deal in the cyberpunk world, each emphasizing different themes. Denno Coil, which is family oriented, deals with kids, child's play, and mystery using AR tech with an authentic Japanese feel to it. GITS: SAC and GITS: SAC 2nd deal with serious criminal drama, philosophical themes and speculation about future sociological and psychological problems in a post-human 2.0 era.

Although at first these two Anime would not appear to be connected, they do share one vital property - they will make you feel. In a world where adults have no understanding of the dangers and difficulties faced by our child protagonists, two stories emerge that will appeal to your sensitive side.

They do this through excellent character building, and soon you not only know about the protagonists' backgrounds, you will find yourself caring deeply about them and what happens to them. Underneath this character focus, the world around them is deceptive and unwelcoming towards them and their point of view. They face dangers every day, and whether they are investigating mysteries or just trying to survive, the viewer will find themselves hoping that the characters do not become lost forever without the guidance that they obviously need and seek.

Hoshi ni Negai o

Dennou Coil and Hoshi are great recs for each other, though Dennou is far longer and thus has a chance to be more in depth with the world. Each are lighthearted titles that explore cyberspace, and will likely appeal to the same fans.
