Synopsis:

Tomoru Shindo yearns to become a pilot and taste adventure, but the rigid structure of his advanced society leaves him bored and wishing he was born into the chaos and romance of the past. This simple wish turns into reality when a chance encounter with a Dr Kanzaki gets him involved with the greatest conflict that will engulf Earth yet: the invasion of Earth by the alien race, the Evoluders. Dr Kanzaki was building an Evoluder whose data had reached Earth, and Tomoru finds that he can link to it and access its memories. Its name is Orgun, and seems to have a connection to Tomoru, and Tomoru's past...

Tekkaman Blade

Tekkaman Blade

Earth is under attack from the alien invaders known as the Radam and is quickly losing the battle. With the planet’s finest defense, the space ring, being overrun without much opposition, mankind’s fate seems bleak. One of the few forces left to oppose the Radam are the Space Knights; but they are anything but successful. That is, until a mysterious man named Blade falls from the sky. Blade has the power to transform into a Tekkaman, one of the deadliest fighting forces in the universe – the very force that is leading the Radam onward! But unlike the other Tekkamen, Blade is obsessed with just one goal: defeating the Radam. Having lost his memory, he doesn't know why, but he knows he must stop them. With the help of the Space Knights he can begin uncovering his past, discovering who the Radam and the Tekkamen are, and of course, save Earth in the process!

Anyone who found the story interesting should take a look at Tekkaman blade. Although the plotlines are similar, Tekkaman blade is much lengthier in content.

ludithor

Both has a story where a kind of aliens tries to invade the earth and at both cases is a one mecha who help it…

Drahken

Both series feature a massively powerful alien invasion force which earth is unable to defeat and a powerful warrior who comes to save the day & is somehow connected to the alien invaders.

Drahken

Both of these series feel very much alike. They also share some plot points, such as; Effects of time dilation, a seeming undefeatable alien invasion force, a hyper-powerful mecha who is the earth's last hope.

Hades Project Zeorymer

Hades Project Zeorymer

If your like me, you really like that 90's mecha feel. it was before the CG had come in and the machines moved and flashed by the screen with detail that you know someone sweated hours and hours over.

It also helps that both are OAV's so the money was not as much an object as if it was a TV series.

So if your looking for another short Mecha series and you have already seen one, try the other. The stories are not really that close in relation, but mecha is mecha, especially in the 90's

Both are epic stories about saving what means most to each person. The characters are deep and well thought out with great back stories that let you get to know them even more. If you liked one i'm sure you will like the other!

If what you enjoyed most about Detonator Orgun is the themes about salvation and the plot, and don't mind watching an anime that shares these but sheds the action and length in favour of art and direction, then be sure to watch Pale Cocoon.
