In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?
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.
They share the same director. There is some similarities in the futuristic technology as well.
wow were to start! 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, but the computer and net theme are also in eden. i believe that Akira's charicter is very similar to that of The Laughing Man.
Also if you loved how beautiful the animation was in one of these series you will surely like the other. bolth shows had very good levels of detail to everything.Though i like the charicter desighns better in GITS.
If you like the political mumbo jumbo in GitS:SAC you can check out Eden of the East. And if you like Eden of the East, I recommend you to check out GitS.
In GitS:SAC the corrupt politicians do some really bad thing and then a hacker namely Laughing Man comes forward to unmask them and that leds Japan to frenzy.
In Eden of the East a business magnet gives twelve people a chance of a lifetime to make Japan a eden providing each of them with 10billion Yen and the political influence he gathered during his lifetime. I'm keeping the rest a secret.
Well, I think you are getting the hold of this.
The two biggest reasons why I reccommend these anime as similar are because of two big reasons, one being that the plots feel very simiar when you watch them. The main protagonist addressing social/political issues in Japan in a covert manner. And second is the element of realistic sci-fi that is present in both anime. While it's more of a focus in Ghost in the Shell, Eden is not without it's science fiction elements.
Art college: cradle of romance, home of bittersweet moments. Takemoto is struggling to find his direction in life, while his roommates Morita and Mayama are moving confidently - or recklessly - towards their goals. Enter Hagu-chan, the childlike and beautiful prodigy whom everyone admires; and thus the love triangles begin. Together, the trio explore the pain of first love, the trials of romantic conflict, and our loyalty to those annoying people who happen to be our closest friends.
The character design is very similar. This is because the same person designed both ;) The humor is close too.
Each of these series have a very similar character design along with similar characters in general. Further, there is a similar comedy in the series.
Though the plot of both these shows couldn't be further apart- the characters' personalities, relationships, and interactions are very reminiscent of each other. The mangaka for Honey and Clover even did the character designs for Eden of the East. So if you enjoyed the characters and comedy from one of these shows- be sure to check out the other!
If you're somebody who enjoys seeing similar characters, then this is a good watch as both series have characters designed by the same person. While the plots are very different, there is similar humour and romantic tensions present in both.
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence.

One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Both series have a guy who tries to overcome the odds to become savior of the world... well in east of the eden's case, just japan, but you get the idea... the both feature a complex game where in the end... the winner rules
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. Code geass is a whole lot longer and you might enjoy it better because of this. But bolth shows protagonist are amazing self sacraficing heros. Though i find Akira a little more upfront with his heroism. meaning for the most part you know what he is doing, but with lelouch you never know what he is doing.I am sure if you love heroes of the people you will love bolth series.
Both Eden of the East and Code Geass focus on character that intends to change the world by becoming a scapegoat for social problems. In both shows the main character creates a villainous persona that the masses loathe and consequently unite against.
In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?
Both series have alot of mystery and depth into them and are both put togeater in a simmeler fashin. the animation in both is prety simmiler to
They are both about how human mind works, as an individual or group, children or adults. They are both about society and very "up-to-date".
At first glance these two series may not have anything in common aside from its impending mystery. But they both dabble in issues of the human mind, albeit Paranoia Agent focuses more on individual human nature while Eden of the East, in collective human nature. As mentioned, both series deal with an on-going mystery which highly affects the characters as the enigma unfolds. So if you were hooked with Paranoia Agent for this reason, you'll surely like Eden of the East (or vice versa).
Ten years before Shirou Emiya's and Saber's fateful meeting, Japan is the stage for the fourth Holy Grail War. Seven Masters, each with his own dreams, step forward to win the boon of the mystic relic. Into this fray comes Kiritsugu Emiya, the enigmatic "Mage Killer" who wants to use the Grail to make a better world. Can he, paired with the indomitable Saber win the War? Or will he fall to the ambitions of the other mages?
Both are about people in a competition against each other after getting special powers, A super phone/super heroes. While all character are fighting for different reasons they are all trying to change the world. Fate/Zero is more action packed, while eden of the east can make your head hurt following, but both have good plots and storylines. Both try to go for the deeper meaning storyline. Both are good, but do have different styles.
Both of these shows involve people competing against each other, all for their own reasons -- and it's interesting to learn about those reasons as the series unfold. They both have plotting, scheming, and action, but they both have touching moments, too.
