Both anime are based on an unexpected meeting between two characters who have different lifestyle, and on an unexpected love too, but Vandread is mainly based on the relationship between characters male and female characters, in both of them, there are great mecha fights, so if you liked Escaflowne and if you like funny situation, you would like Vandread too.

X TV is much more in depth with the theme of fate, and also has excellent character development. Much more brutal and tragic than Escaflowne, but close to flawless. If you liked Escaflowne, try out X TV.
