Synopsis:

Juna didn't think much about daily life beyond the archery club, high school, and boys. But when an accident sent her spiraling towards the arms of death, fate intervened by giving her a second chance at life, under one condition: humanity is recklessly polluting and destroying the world, and Juna, with newfound powers of the Earth, must dedicate her life to saving it. Now, an unthinkable evil she can see with her powers is threatening Earth's very existence, and only she has the power to stop it...

Blue Gender

Blue Gender

In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.

Earth Girl Arjuna and Blue Gender both have creepy similarities about their plotlines, that I can't give away, because it would be a massive spoiler for both series ;). Both have animation that I thoroughly enjoyed, and a captivating storyline which gets to you. Blue Gender *definitely* is a lot more focused on violence/gore, while Earth Girl Arjuna tends to focus on the Earth dying, scenes of nature, etc.
TheBurningCrow
Of course Blue Gender and Earth Girl Arjuna are completely different story, and different animation, however their is a theme within both series that will be apparently clear AFTER you watch them.
fasang

As in both series the main character develop theire character during the series, you'll also find that the philosophy behind it all is leaning on the same principals.

Boths series will put you on thinking a whole bit about that piece of dirt we call home.

Earth Girl Arjuna and Blue Gender let you see the struggle of one character and his loved ones with the situation they find themeselves forced into, you'll notice that in Blue Gender the plotline is more extensive and you'll find more characters wich all add theire part to the story, without any

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind
  • Movie (1 ep x 117 min)
  • 1984

One thousand years after the Giant Warriors caused an apocalyptic event known as the seven days of fire, humans are living in constant fear of the Toxic Jungle. This ever-spreading forest is filled with poisonous plants and gigantic monstrous insects; even the very air is deadly. Nausicaa is the kind and wise princess of a small, peaceful country known as the Valley of the Wind, which has so far avoided the spread of the forest. One night a large airship containing one of the Giant Warriors crashes into the valley. The following day soldiers from the powerful nation of Tolmekia invade the Valley of the Wind to reclaim and revive the warrior. As the only one who truly believes that there is a way for humans to live alongside the insects, Nausicaa must find a way to stop the war that now threatens her people and protect the Toxic Jungle before the Tolmekians burn it to the ground.

Both Arjuna and Nausicaa are strong-willed women who are saviors of the worlds they live in. Taking care of the earth and it's creatures and the vices of ignorance are strong points in both animes. While Arjuna is full of great CG and Nausicaa is rather vintage, they share the same deep message and I highly reccommend checking it out.
pan4os

Both works address ethical matters and especialy concerning philosophy of Life. Both review environmental problems and propose forms to image them into. Forms of what human is afraid. And forms, that are nothing less, but naturally spawned spirit-life-forms, that clean the Earth by attempting to digest all the poisons that irresponsible humanity produces.

KxNOxUTA

I very agree that Nausicaa and Arjuna have much in common. It's two girls gaining an understanding of the unit of nature and human and both are fighting with love to make others understand and to calm the rage of nature in order to save both.

Princess Mononoke

Princess Mononoke
  • Movie (1 ep x 134 min)
  • 1997

With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?

Similar commentary on environmental issues, humans interaction with the world, etc. although certainly a different general approach. If you enjoy some of these ideas though, you should enjoy it as a whole.
pan4os

Both works address problems of unidiectional relationships beween human and nature. Both criticize the blindness, greediness and selfishness of people, that are ready to destroy the most beautiful and complex - Life itself, without understanding, what they are loosing, for the immediate gain.

KxNOxUTA

The parrarells here are very clear: humans and nature are out of balance which causes fights. THe humans don't understand the source of natures rage, neither do they understand that they are fighting themselves. Just a few people gain an understanding of this and fight to restore the balance and understanding.

Zaion ~i wish you were here~

In the present time, the meteorite-based M-34 virus is being spread at a horrific pace: infecting thousands, and mutating their bodies into alien-like creatures who destroy everyone in their path. While NOA -- an elite team of cybernetic soldiers -- work to contain the threat, a new weapon named Ai is being trained to destroy the virus once and for all. Unknown to all are her true powers -- especially once she falls in love with NOA member Yuji. Time is running out.. who will inherit the earth? The virus, or humanity?

Yet another series about Earth's reaction to humans overstepping their bounds, and the consequences/death/transformation it does to its inhabitants. Both "i wish you were here" and "Earth Girl Arjuna" manage to tell a gripping and dramatic story with beautiful animation, and flair. A must see.
TheBurningCrow
Both I Wish you Were Here and Earth Girl Arjuna focus on the bonds of love and the power that one person can possess to save the world. Each has a girl, who is the lead candidate for saving the earth from certain doom.
kamirura
A girl destinied to become a saviour of earth.... a spirit able to embrace everything.. Just like Juna the girl in this series can turn into a magical spirit who can protect everything from disaster. A story about a world colapsing because of the human race. And just like Juna the girl Ai in this series wants to protect her loved ones and has to see the meaning of life. This is truly a must see if you liked Arjuna.

Please Save My Earth

Please Save My Earth

Remnants of a past life on the moon swirl in Alice's dreams after she overhears two of her classmates talking about mutual dreams they are having. Banding together, they set out in search of others who share these dreams, and for answers. All the while the pressing question is, do these memories of a past life determine the course of the present?

The Earth, and its possible destruction (and/or, humans overstepping their bounds on our planet) are both common themes in these two series. Short, touching, and fantastic.
TheBurningCrow
Earth Girl Arjuna and Please Save my Earth both revolve around one girl who must figure out who she really is as well as the end of the world. Arjuna does it with Raaja, PSME does it with human minds... kind of.
