He so impressed her that she decided to become a prince herself one day. Now, Utena is a teenager at Ohtori Academy who's athletic and notorious for dressing in a boy's uniform. When a member of the Student Council humiliates a friend of hers Utena challenges him to a duel, and he accepts only when he sees she possesses a rose seal ring. She soon discovers that this is no normal duel - it's a bizarre and ritualistic battle that the Student Council regularly conducts.

If she wants to keep Anthy she'll have to win more duels against members of the Student Council and others. What is the ultimate purpose of these duels and Anthy's role as the Rose Bride?

Despite the obvious style & genre differences, both of these series employ excellent character development and thought-provoking symbolism to deliver essentially similar messages about breaking illusions & isolation to enter the real world. Also, they both are experimental to the core and full of twists & surprises that never fail to amaze you. So, if you're open to various styles & genres and you like uncommon animes that really make you think & reflect on your own life, you should definitely try both of them.

Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate

The eccentric mad scientist Okabe, his childhood friend Mayuri, and the otaku hacker Daru have banded together to form the Future Gadget Research Laboratory, and spend their days in a ramshackle laboratory hanging out and occasionally attempting to invent incredible, yet generally useless, futuristic gadgets. However, their claymore is a hydrator and their hair dryer flips breakers, and the only invention that’s even remotely interesting is their Phone Microwave, which transforms bananas into oozing green gel. But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences...

Steins;Gate and Ergo Proxy are alike in that they are both psychological and deal with inner conflict as well as memories. Ergo Proxy is a little more serious and very stylized while Steins;Gate is more comedic but still equally mind blowing.

Both shows are set in a similar world and have similar themes through the story. White they each presents their own ideas and conclusions. In the end, they are about survival. If you enjoy one show you will enjoy the other one, however, DT Eightron is from 1998 and Ergo Proxy from 2006, so don't expect the same quality of animation and I would't be surprised if Ergo Proxy was inspierd by DT Eightron at all.

If you found yourself drawn into either Karas or Ergo Proxy, I expect you'd do the same for the other. Both animes feed you pieces of information rather than giving the plot to you straight, and although this can make them confusing at times, a re-watch made them both way more enjoyable. Both Karas and Ergo Proxy have beautiful animation, too. The main difference, and it's an important one, is that while Karas is whirl-wind fast paced, Ergo Proxy is very slow paced, but these styles are both very successful. However, I think they both have the same dark, addictive feel to them.
