Synopsis:

Several years ago, Jin Kamishina's family was killed in what appeared to have been a space shuttle accident. A few years later he is suddenly attacked by a strange monster, but is saved by a strange girl named Toa who possesses superhuman strength and can transform into a dragon. Jin finds out that the accident was not due to an error by his father, the pilot, but rather as a result of a collision with an object from outer space – the asteroid Thanatos, the source of destructive dragons appearing on Earth. As they make new friends and enemies, Jin and Toa now find themselves becoming increasingly entangled in the mysteries of the ISDA – a shadowy organization working to protect humanity – and the dragons themselves...

Eureka Seven

Eureka Seven

Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!

In both Eureka Seven and Dragonaut, the main male and female character are a little akward when it comes to relationships. In Eureka Seven, Eureka is a little shy and therefore does not "know" how to express her feelings for Renton. Renton is just, well, a klutz and just can't say what he wants to say. In Dragonaut, Toa is more concerned about not getting Jin involved rather than expressing her true feelings. Jin is so worried about being lonely that he realizes he likes Toa after she has left him.

Wander

Both series have vibrant colors and a compelling relationship held by the two main protagonists.  Jin and Renton are almost identical in the personality department.  The female leads in each series have mysterious pasts which unravel as the series progresses as well.  Both series involve plenty of space flight and delve into serious tones, especially on the idea of alienation and the pitfalls of humanity.

The son of a famous father has to step out of the shadows to deal with an extraterrestrial threat. At his side is a beautiful, but mysterious girl whom he grows to love. With secret, shady organizations, massive battles, and some interesting forms of transportation, these two anime are very similar. Not to mention, Renton and Jin share the same haircut. 

truehiddenevil

It took me a while to realise how much these 2 animes have in common. Without any spoilers, the animes both have mankind fighting a war that the populace is unaware of. The hero's father was involved with the heroine in some way. The heroines are both strange individuals with some secrets of thier own.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Pain

I rhink you'd like this anime because under many aspects those two animations are very similar. They both control Evangelion or Dragons, but the modality is the same. The only thing that differs from Dragonaut is that Neon Genesis Evangelion is mst emotive and sentimental than Dragonaus, the resonance.

Oehr

Both series have many twists and turns. While Dragonaut is more like a love story, Neon Genesis Evangelion prefers going more psychological and emotional. I'm sure you'll enjoy both!

hamletsmage

These animes share a lot of similar plot points. For one, they involve space-vehicles used by a secret government organization that is only refered to by its acronym. There also some character personalities that pop in both, such as the foreign genius-girl with an attitude problem. Perhaps the main difference is the styles (NGE is more psychological where Dragonaut is romantic).

Dragon Crisis!

Dragon Crisis!

In the world, there are those who hunt down rare and powerful items known as Lost Precious, including Ryuuji Kisaragi’s own parents and cousin Erika, who’s been studying abroad for the last few years. But when Erika suddenly returns, the boy finds himself in the middle of the action when she drags him along to intercept a special treasure from the nefarious Fang organization. What’s more, the duo soon discovers that this Lost Precious isn’t a jewel or trinket, it’s a rare dragon girl who instantly bonds with Ryuuji! Now, Ryuuji and Erika must help teach this dragon - who they name Rose - about the world, while keeping her safe and meeting other new friends and dragons along the way.

LastDarkness

Both series involve the relationship between a human and a dragon and the powers they gain from such a union. Both series have a young male protagonist who is unsure of himself and a mysterious young girl suddenly thrusts themselves into his life who is immedietly attached to him. Definetly worth a watch if you like this series.

Nihatclodra

There is no way you couldn't see the similarity between these two, I could have sworn that Dragon Crisis was a direct rip-off of Dragonauts.

Dragon Resonates/Engages with boy. Dragon fights along-side boy. Boy ends up with Harem. Boy and Dragon defeats everything with "The Power of Love"...

If you like this kind of set-up, you'll like the other.

Hayate the Combat Butler!

Hayate the Combat Butler!

When Hayate was young, Santa appeared in a dream and told him that if he worked hard, he’d be rewarded. Thus, with an unbreakable will, the unfortunate Hayate has struggled through life holding onto that belief. In the present, his parents are lazy and unemployed, forcing Hayate to work several jobs to pay the bills. As if things couldn’t get worse, Hayate’s parents then run away, leaving him with an enormous debt and loan sharks on his tail! Naturally, the best solution to find money fast is… to kidnap someone?! A girl named Nagi is the target, but due to an unfortunate miscommunication, she believes Hayate has proposed to her and falls for him hard. After Nagi paid off his debt, Hayate must now work as her butler in order to repay her; but first, he must adapt to her wacky world!

In my opinion, both of theses series are tains wreks, (the subbers for dragonaut even mentioned it was "the only time they wanted the power of love to loose"), however that on its own isn't enough for this review.

Each series has standalone episodes(Hayate is more excusable, it's a comedy)

Each series is "funny" at times, but never how it means to be. Its the "funny" you get when a really fanatical person takes himself to be funny, or intelligent.

The graphical styles are somewhat similar.

If you have the guts to tear through one of these alive, I would stop there. But if you want to show some real manhood… then the other is a perfect target

Heroic Age

Heroic Age

Far, far away in a distant time, there is a tribe of people called the Golden Tribe who have the ability to create stars and foretell the future. They gave out a warning to those who have yet to mature: 'Move.'. Three tribes answered their call: the Silver Tribe, the Bronze Tribe, and the Heroic Tribe. Soon after, the Golden Tribe encountered a crashed ship in which only a baby human known as Age survived; they named the child's race the Iron Tribe and assigned one of the few living members of the Heroic Tribe to protect him and his race. Now, in a distant part of the galaxy, humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the other tribes. With only a prophecy to go on, they set out to the deepest depths of space to find their savior named Age -- humanity's last hope.

like Heroic Age, Dragonaut has a race of creatures sent to destroy as well as to protect humanity. The main characters each have the same attitudes and beliefs in the way the battle. If you enjoyed one series you will thoroughly enjoy the other.
