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!

Xam'd: Lost Memories

Akiyuki lives on post-war Sentan Island, always rushing between the demands of his separated parents and his friends at school. But his carefree days come abruptly to an end when his school bus suffers an explosion, the first attack to plunge Sentan back into war. Akiyuki lives to find himself turned into a Xam'd, a mysterious creature, by the suspected cause of the explosion. Engulfed by Xam'd, Akiyuki is eventually saved by a red-haired girl, Nakiami, only to find himself torn away from those he loves.

Not only are the character styles, animation, color pallet, and studios the same.  Eureka Seven, and Xam'd: Lost Memories are both similar in plot, and emotion.  Characters unsure of who they are, or what they want to become are important to both anime.  Finding yourself in the freedom of flight is a theme held by both.  If you like one you will like the other as well.


You will notice something right away: They both look damn similar. Well, both anime are animated by Bones and even share some of the special effects.

Leaving the look aside, the story itself share many similarities, like the most of the series happen on some kind of plane. Also the personality of Eureka (Eureka Seven) and Nakiami (Xam'd). Both also involve love, trust and hate, teasing, conflicts and death. Overall, a mixture out of all possible routes a anime can do.

Be sure to watch both!


They're both similar in many ways like their looks, characters, setting, in-world technology, plot and overall feeling.


I believe if you enjoyed Eureka 7 or Xam'd Lost Memories as much as I did you'd like the other. They have many things in common such as having romance, yet also action and adventure. They show that even though a person might change over time and become different, if you really care about them it wouldn't matter.


Both animes are definitely worth watching, both are extremely well plotted storylines, with twists that keep you watching more.  Both share similar aspects focusing on a creature/mecha being of some sort, xamd lost memories being xamd creatures, and eureka sevens being LFOs.  Also being by the same company (BONES) which doesnt count for much when comparing animes, but it seems the same amount of care has went into both of these series to produce amazing animation with brilliant artwork. :D


Xam'd and Eureka Seven have a couple, rather large plot elements in common: Guy leading a reasonably normal life tries to help a strange girl, shit hits the fan, guy joins a small "rebellious" aircraft-crew and goes on adventures with them. Then ofcourse there is the all-powerful military as enemy, and a strange power affecting the main character. If you liked the whole diverse crew, combined with some sci-fi, drama and occasional comedy, you'll love this anime as well!


Apart from the production company, the animation and the character design (which both animes share), Xam'd's story it's kind of a retake of Eureka Seven's. Both animes are set in worlds immersed in war where the army plays a big role, both have airships with very peculiar design that are a very important part of the plot, both deal with xenophobia using a member of the crew in said ships, both comment on ecology and conservation issues in a roundabout way, and both have a male main character who didn't want to become the hero.


Basically Xam'd is a more mature version of Eureka Seven.  It's tighter, more emotionally realistic, and with a better setting.  It trades a lot of the comedy of Eureka Seven for emotional impact.  If you liked the drama and character relationships of one, definitely watch the other.  


With a young male protagonist thrust into a situation he was not ready for, both of these titles make for a similar feel and look.  

Living aboard a larger ship with a motley crew, and having character designs that live and breath Bones studio, also helps relate these two titles. 

Eureka is more mecha, than a organic creature worn as armor as in Xamd, but the general vibe and pace of action is what makes these two titles kissing cousins of each other. 

if you like one, you will probably like the other.


First of all their storyline is fairly similar. A young boy due to varius circumstances gets a new type of power (Xamd in XLM and giant Robot in E7 ) and a very strange girl, that seems to know a lot about that power. Than the boy sets off on a journey with her, aboard a an airship with lots of peculiar characters. On this journey he learns a lot about the truth of the world, and in the proccess grows up.

Apart from the obvious storyline and characters connections even the overall mood is fairly similar. Characters are a small group caught in the middle of something bigger than they could imagine. You can feel the pressure caused by difference in strength. There is a lot of suspense caused by slow pace in which the mysteries around the girl and boys power unravel. And there is a cute romance that shapes the story into it's final form.


Each of these series, apart from having similar art and similar voice actors (in many cases, the same ones), have a deep story about coming of age, love, and lose. They both start out in a boring town, where something huge happens, and then a chunk of what happens after that is the same. Each series also has a very common theme in the ending. If you liked one of these series, you'll like the other.


Both of theses anime have almost the exact same feel to them. In these anime they each have a group of people that are traveling around in a ship fighting there enemies. Each have their own elements of action, adventure, and romance.  Eureka 7 has a lot more in the romance department, but Xam'd has a lot also.


What can i say. If you like one you'll definitely like the other. Both feature a normal young boy who meets a strange, mysterious, girl and enters a war between the military and a band of rebels and is forced to fight for not only themseleves but the girl they love. :)


Having the same studio and character designer definatly makes these two shows feel similar aswell as having a similar plot line with a young boy being thrust into an unfimiliar environment and having to learn the truth about the world. I definatly reccomend watching both these shows.


Both share very similar stories involving a male lead who must leave home in the face of corrupt military. Both lead villians act similar using illegal research methods to create a weapon. The animation is very similar. However, Xam'd is a much shorter storyline.


both animes are mostly the similar, they have similar story similar emotions similar fighting styleIf you like one then you will for sure like other 


If you've watched one of the two of these shows, you simply have to watch the other. They are very similar but look at things in different perspectives- Xam'd is more humanistic while Eureka 7 is based more on tolerance.


Same studio , though  you can see the progress in their design. Personally I consider xam'd to have the best animation design out there . Eureka and Xam'd give you almost the same feeling while watching , rooting for the main character . At the same time many other characters will come to spotlight . What' s more , the romance element is vivid all the way till the end of both series . It is a must see for both mecha and romance fans.

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.

Eureka 7 has a similar feel to Evangelion: both deal with human psychology and touch on themes like action and romance to keep them accessible to a wider audience. Both have a great and frightening mystery lurking - something so frightening that the characters are torn between their choices. Will they collapse and have a nervous breakdown? Or will they harden themselves and see things through?


Eureka Seven and Evangelion are both anime about big robots and mysterious blue haired girls. Aside from that however, they both deal with the deep psychological issues of the protagonist. If you enjoyed one, you'd like the other.


Seriously, these two anime share a lot of things, and yet are so different. If you liked Eureka Seven because of the funny parts, then this recommendation won't do a lot for you; but if you liked the whole end-of-the-world-chaos thing in the plot, Evangelion would be definitely be one of you favorites. Plus one could say that Eureka is Rei's young sister.


Both Evangelion and Eureka Seven are bout mecha and their pilots. There are also questions about the nature of human beings in both of them, so be sure to check them out.


Both series center around emotionally awkard children, giant mechs, their mission to save the world and crazy underlaying philosophical references. Watch them for their similarities or watch them for their differences, just watch them.


I would recommend Eva to anyone who likes Eureka Seven because of nearly the same theme of romance and mecha. Through out both series there is a relationship growing between two important characters, Rei and Shinji / Eureka and Renton. Both are that soft, calm, and slow forming relationships, where you really just want to know if they really do get together at the end.


Teens piloting Mecha, a strong emotional story, and awsome battle really bring both these series to a level that not many anime reach. Truely fantasic.


The plot line of both stories are similar; a rather weak boy who had for some reason lost his parents, is drawn into a conflict he doesn't really understand.  Each has giant robots (mechs), strong female protectors, dubious male influences, and strange blue haired girls.

Think of Eureka 7 as a less psychologically twisted version of NGE.


Eureka Seven has much lighter elements than Evangelion, but both explore the ideas around human psychology fairly thoroughly. Additionally, both have a protagonist drawn into a conflict he doesn't much understand, pilots mechs, and eventually gets into quite the mental mess.


Eureka Seven and NGE are both mecha series about a war against an unknown, "inhuman" enemy. One of the big questions in both series, is wherever the enemies they're fighting against actually are the ones being wrong and "evil", or if humanity is the one at fault. While they both have their moments of seriousness and comedy, Eureka Seven tends to be a bit comical and lighter, due to the occasional random comedy (and awesome rainbowexplosions).


These series both feature slightly non-traditional mechas along with a view of the universe that is very interesting. They both start off as a fairly down to earth series but slowly get more and more out there. While focusing on a world fighting for survival of the human race, a few kids come to the forfront and must take everything upon themselve.


Middle/high school kid pioliting a giant mecha that may just be humanity's final hope? Certianly sounds like either Evangelion, or Eureka 7. Both have a remarkably aggrivating personality, yet each show somehow lures you in to watching the next episode. Each are actually quite entertaining and have their own races of aliens, comedy and it's share of loveable (and not so lovable) characters.


If your main reason of watching this anime was that quiet, seledine-haired girl, Scub Coral question, and you are ready for anime without clear end, and with enormous impact for psychology, and "E7" was just too happy and too funny for you, you'll fall in love to Ayanami Rei too, and you'll good way of spending your time, whatching this classic anime.


Both Eureka Seven and Evangelion are about a young male character who suddenly finds himself in the middle of a war to save mankind. Both anime delve into human psychology, and so, the characters are flawed individuals with deep and intricate storylines. Both anime also take an interesting look at how the respective mecha is created/piloted. 


Both shows are remarkably similar. Kids piloting contraptions that they were pretty much forced to pilot, the dark plot development, a cast full of characters that vary greatly in personality and reasons for piloting, really slick animation physics. Both great shows that the viewer should watch if they enjoyed either one.


Both shows share many of the same major plot aspects. They revolve around boys and other who control mysterious robots that are linked to other beings that they fight. They both have lots of pyschological issues while the show deal with human origins. I would say Neon Genesis is more adult in feel compared to Eureka Seven.

Love Eureka Seven as much as me? Then I highly recommend Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann. Both are a story about two "brothers" who want to escape faith. In Eureka Seven, a boy who had nothing but a normal life changes when he becomes involved with a mysterious mecha. In Gurren-Lagann the same principles apply, but they are shown in a whole new way. Eureka Seven has action, a lot of drama, and is funny; Gurren-Lagann has the same things. Trust me, Eureka Seven is my #1 anime but Gurren-Lagann is VERY VERY close to outranking it. If you don't like it, then here's a pie!


Both Tengen and Eureka offer a unique take on two young upstarts who start from humble origins but are quickly caught up in events beyond their control, as well as intense, stylistic mecha action and character-driven plots.


Both series have remarkably similar plot lines and character lineups.  Gurren-Lagann is more plot driven while Eurkea seven is more character driven.  Both stories (initially) revolve around a pubecent boy who is able to pilot a "special" mecha type robot, both are guided by a stronger, more charasmatic male character, both involve a love affair between the main character and a human-but-not-human female character, and both involve saving the world from a much larger enemy than it should be concievable to defeat.


both stories have crazy mecha action,  an interesting crew as well as a love story that revolves around the main character. and oh yeah both love interest are "special"


Both mech action type shows. Also involves some obscure kid making their rise to greatness. Both can be rather mature on some aspects with a fair share of comedy as well. Both stories also have their own fair share of twists. Some you will see coming from a mile away and others not so much.


Both E7 and Tengen Toppa tell the story of a sad, weak boy and his rise to herodom. Both shows have a crew of rebels, fighting against a mighty, oppressive power. Where E7 tries to take itself quite srsly, despite all the rainbows and pink explosions, TTGL simply disregards sanity. If you loved one of these, and are looking for a similar story with a different edge, give the other a try!


Both anime are super colourful and have a lovely range of characters. Both are about fighting for their survival basically. Both are slightly longer than they should be IMO. You'll enjoy one if you liked the other


If you liked one of these series then you will probably enjoy watching the other series as well because each series place a strong emphasis on the mechs and their pilots.  Showing that as each series the characters grows stronger and they become able to stand on their own with the support of their friends and the feelings they have.  Each series some rather nice comedy and funny moments but they also have the moments when everyone is absolutely being serious neither of which will ever feel out of place and like the tone of the episode doesn't feel like it belongs with the current situation.


A lot of the same voice actors/actresses. Same mecha non gundem feel. Tear jerking storyline making sure you are to watch from start to finish


Mecha: check. Saving the world: check. A boy's coming of age: check. These series just fall in together so well that there is no way you should miss a chance of watching the other if you've like one of these.


Both of these anime have a rather spectacular view of mecha. Both anime follow a young man as he joins a crew of rebels against an oppressive government. Both anime involve some interesting plot twists and action scenes. A lot of both animes are how the characters interact with each other, the mechs, and their world. 


Gurren Lagann is the definitive rule of cool, and Eureka Seven has air surfing mecha, but they are more than just badass mecha. The inner clockwork is a romance that blooms into love between two characters, Eureka and Renton in E7 and Simon and Nia in Gurren Lagann. When there's action, it's fast and fierce and the characters really sell the shows.


These Both are the two best mecha animes of all time. they are both highly addicting and also love stories on the side. by the time you finnish up one eppisode you automaticaly put it to the next one


They both run along the same sort of theme where a young boy is stuck somewhere where they were born and are looking for something new. Stories about character development and coming of power not only within battle but in their personal lifes also.


Both of these shows invigorate with their spirits and likable casts. Complete with unbeatable odds, over-the-top, yet fluid action, romance, themes of revolution and friendship, these animes tell wonderful coming-of-age stories that will inspire those who watch. If you loved one, you'll love the other.


Action? Mecha? Slight Romance? Sci-Fi elements?

All of these are present in the both of these anime - when action happens, it happens full force. Both also have a defining moment that sets the tone for the entirety of the show. If one was amazing to you, so will the other!

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Eureka seveN and FMA are both from studio Bones. These two series are quite similar in style - animation, interesting storyline - FMA has a bit less romance and more action, Eureka has much wider number of developed characters. They are different in genre, though (FMA is fantasy-style, Eureka is Sci-Fi).

Both Eureka 7 and Fullmetal Alchemist have deep and involving stories of epic scale. You will learn of their worlds (one sci-fi, the other fantasy), the politics, the peoples, the histories, and the struggles: all from young eyes. If you liked Eureka 7's absorbing tales and world spanning intrigues, then you'll love Fullmetal Alchemist's fantasy counterpart.


Both Eureka 7 and FMA have a similar plot: a group of people plan on finding out the truth behind a mystery, and will follow through on their goal to the end. Once they begin investigating though, it's quickly apparent that things go way deeper than they first imagined.

If you want another adventurous and mysterious story that is kept lively due to its action scenes, check these out.


"There is more than what you see on the surface" appears to be a recurring theme in both anime. Both Eureka Seven and Full Metal Alchemist have a huge dynamic cast of characters that seem similar if you compare them. You think you'll be going one way in these anime, but then it will twist and turn until you don't know what to expect. You'll hear "Don't beg for things, do it yourself" in Eureka Seven, and "Something cannot be gained without giving something in return" in Full Metal Alchemist very often. These quotes tie together well, and it generates a solid feel of what these two are like. Many emotional and heartbreaking moments lie in wait in both adventures, so you can't go wrong with either.


Renton and Ed have similar personalities and fans of Eureka Seven will enjoy Ed and Al's quest in Fullmetal Alchemist


Both series are about telling the truth of not only the world but all of the characters who will end up having an important role in all of the story, each one of them with a deep story and deep relationships. Apart from both being produced by Bones Studio, Eureka Seven is less action packed than FMA, but tells alot more about all of the characters. There\'s 2 different relationships to be honest. Two brothers fighting for the sake of each other (in FMA) and a boy and a girl doing everything they can to stay together, as they discover the truth about themselves. So, both stories keeps you watching and interested, and both have similiar and a nice flow when it comes to animation, though Eureka Seven is a bit more inovative in that way. That\'s pretty much all of it, watch both, you\'ll love them all the way to the end.


While Fullmetal Alchemist isn't much about love, the stories are quite similar: The protagonists try to find the truth of a mystery. If you enjoyed one, I'm sure you'll enjoy the other one too!


Besides them both coming from an amazing studio (Bones), they are both amazing stories of adventure filled with drama and mystery. Eureka 7 and FMA may seem like long series (and they kinda are) but their loveable characters, the hardships they go through to figure out the truth, their sad times, their happy times, are enough to make your watching worth-while.

If you've watched one of these and not the other, you better at least make sure the other is on your want to watch list! 


Each of these series have a major plot that is later completely consumed and embeded into a new one. If you liked a lot of smaller stories slowly coming together into a larger one, the mix of humor, comedy, and drama, or the coming of age tale in either of these stories, be sure to checkout the other.


Both protagonists are young boys that start out on a journey to discover something and get swept up in some major drama. They are surrounded by interesting, often powerful individuals. Both anime include a bit of the supernatural, and the animation styles are similar because both are produced by Bones. 


Both of these shows are quite different and similar at the same time. While FMA is a fantasy, Eureka Seven is a sci-fi that focuses more on romance. However, they both have a similar sense of humour and similar protagonists. Both feature a child with his share of family problems who goes out into the world. Ultimately on quests to protect those they love while finding out that the world is much crueller than they thought. I did like Fullmetal alchemist more and thought it was a bit more coherent in the story line and featured more adult themes.

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 shows feature a ragtag gang of heroes who go up against an evil empire in order to save the world.  They also feature a young girl with mysterious powers who may very well be the key to their salvation.  Also, the mecha combat is identical except that in Code Geass, they can't fly.  But everything as far as movement and how they look and how they fight is just about identical.  Code Geass can be a bit more violent and mean-spirited at times while Eureka can be more romantic.


Besides featuring the same opening theme artist and being mecha anime, these two have a very different approach to the mecha scene. They are great in giving the viewer enough story and action while not drowning either in one side for too long. If you liked one, try out the other.


Eureka 7 has the same building stones as Code Geass: mecha action, a supernatural mysterious power and most importantly a good story to keep everything together. Combine that with a few nervosities in the characters that don't go to the extent of Evangelion-like breakdowns; and a very nice interaction between the characters.

This brings you to two anime that differ completely in plot, powers and even mecha style; yet manage to leave a similar feeling of success and satisfaction.


Both these anime have very interesting lead male characters. In Eureka Seven Renton Thurston is compelled to continue fighting for the ones that he loves (mainly a non-human girl named Eureka). In Code Geass the main character Lelouch (AKA Zero) is fighting for the memory of his mother and for the future of his younger sister Nunally.


These are pretty similiar went they come to Mecha, but what makes them really good is that they have a wonderful story line in both of them they also have really good sad and joyful meanings it actualy moved me.


Boy eclipsed by father's fame: check. Mysterious girl helping said boy do new things: check. Story that you don't realize is as epic as it really is until late in the series: check. A lot of cool mecha: check. If you liked one of these series, there is no reason to not check out the other.


Both of Code Geass and Eureka Seven contain similar elements. A girl with mysterious powers, a government with little concern for it's people, rebellion, and mecha. Both of the protagonists are given the chance to change their world for the better, and both are up against formidable foes.


Both these anime as main plot have history of young boy, who wants fight against almost totalitarian goverment beacuse of his love (Lelouch fights for his lil' sister and Renton for mecha pilot girl, serving in famous militia "Gekko-Go"); in both series there are also mad dictators as main villains, as well as portraited in interesting ways resistance groups. Despite of fact partly similarity of soundtrack, you'll find more things in both anime, which make you content, or not.


Both of these shows have likable casts that experience misadventures, romance, hardships, and fight with fluid, stylish action as the main resistance movements against an oppressive government. Both shows deal with themes of discrimination, sacrifice and overcoming pain dealt from things out of their characters' control. Either of these shows will have you hooked until the very end.


Both series are easy to recommend due to being very friendly to introduce to mech anime and can appeal to both guys and girls alike unlike other mech anime (hello, Gundam) in which we never see female characters even piloting the mech.
