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!
Many centuries into the future, humans live as part of the Fractale system, a computer program that moderates their activity to ensure a free and peaceful existence. But while life is indeed comfortable, the cost of growing up in virtual reality communities filled with holographic people called 'doppels' means that it can also get lonely. For Clain living estranged from his parents, adventure finally knocks when he rescues a mysterious girl called Phryne, who appears to be on the run. She spends only a short time with him before hurriedly moving on but leaves behind an unexpected gift: the curious and frustratingly whimsical doppel called Nessa! As Clain learns to adjust to his new friend and survive the scrapes she gets him into, he discovers that she and Phryne are at the heart of a great conspiracy. If he is ever to gain a sense of purpose, Clain will have to leave his comfortable existence and challenge the only thing he has ever known, the Fractale system itself.
Well, honestly it's just my opinion, and I may be wrong, but somehow Fractale has similar feeling to Eureka. Why? Well... here you go:
Clain, like a Renton, is living his life without paying much attention to faraway problems: he has old stuff, which he adores a lot, he has a family etc. But then he meets a girl, and his life changes. And there you have love at first sight, adventures, company of badass revolutioners and much more.
Also animation of Fractale reminds me of Eureka - similar lightnings... well, I can't put it in words proprerly.
Here is the premise: Young kid who works on old machines meets someone special and then gets involved in a whole different world.
Renton ends up in Eureka's world, and Clain ends up in Phryne's world.
Also there is a big parallel theme of "world power" and controlling the masses via technology.
A boy who lives a boring life who meets a girl, gets swept up with revolutionaries, and could be a key component of changing the world. Oh, and airships! Sound familiar?
Both series have similar amounts of action, balanced by a romantic story to give an overall similar feel. If you enjoyed one of these series, you should try out the other.
The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.
Both of these Bones studio animes have a mixture of science and fantasy in their structure. The protagonists are young men with skilled allies against a government bent on destruction. Both Ed and Renton show a determination to help the ones they love, no matter the cost to themselves.
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.
The stories in these anime are extrememly in depth. they may not make sense at first, but keep watching if you arnt already mesmerized. Everything wraps up and furthermore there is a nice amount of action. The secrets are not thrown in your face right away, they take time and struggle to discover.
Both have many different characters, the characters are their own, meaning there are no identity crossovers. These are two animes that buckle up and bring a damn good story to life, something that too many animes nowadays lack.
Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.
Eureka Seven and Full Metal Panic both feature some cool looking mecha, and ship that carries the mecha and crew around. Both have as their subject matter groups of mercinaries or revolutionaries that seek to make the world better by fighting those who seek to disurupt the peace. The romantic element of both is quite similar and can bring out a laugh in those who enjoy watching males act awkwardly around females.
Both of these shows have some what similar action in that they both invole mechs and they are both animes that are action based but still have a good amount of romance in them
If you liked one of these series then you're most likely to like the other series as well because both sereis have this small mercenary type of force that use mechs to fight battles and defeat there opponents. Each series also deals a lot with the romance between the two main characters and the awkwardness as their relationships develop. Each series also has a strong supporting cast of characters that contribute a lot to the series in terms of action, comedy, and story telling.
AD 2019: the giant mecha known as LINEBARREL falls to Earth, grabbing the attention of the anti-machina organization JUDA. Before JUDA can arrive on the scene, an unfortunate accident occurs: LINEBARREL crashes into Kouichi Hayase, a weak and frail pushover of a boy. Waking up underneath a beautiful naked woman, Kouichi discovers that he now possesses great power and can summon LINEBARREL for his own purposes. All Kouichi has wanted is to become a hero of justice and hold his own, instead his childhood friends Yajima and Risako fighting his battles for him – and now he finally has that chance. With LINEBARREL's power, Kouichi becomes cocky and aggressive, lashing out at those he cares about most; and as a 'hero of justice', Kouichi must find his new place in the world and protect himself from two organizations who want their hands on LINEBARREL.
take the mecha, save the girl and save the world... nice envolving plots for both of them showing amazing mecha battles and on top of that, a bit of romance that will take you right in front of the screen for hours!!
If you liked one of these series then you will probably most definitely like the other as well because both series have young characters who are still in their teen years with the male leads leading boring lifes beforehand and wanting to get out and do something. Then through unexpected circumstances they are give the ability and power to go out and make changes in the world. Both series also deal with mechs and actually both start out with the female lead the first pilots of the main mech. There is also some lite humor in each series with the main focus being on character development and the battles.
Following the acquaintanceship of a mysterious girl who lands her mecha on top of him/his house, the latter’s life changes. In the beginning, the boy is a somewhat ignorant brat, but with the hardships that came from being involved with a gang of mecha pilots fervently fixated on doing something in the world, he realizes the path to manhood and makes an effort to do what only he can accomplish…even if it takes him awhile!
In the 24th century, the planet's fossil fuels have been completely consumed, forcing humanity to use solar power as the primary source of energy. A huge solar energy system orbiting the planet was eventually built, anchored to the Earth and providing it with power through three orbital space elevators. As a result of the expense of such a large-scale project, most the world consolidated into three factions: the Union, the Human Reform League, and the AEU. Despite their common reliance on the fragile orbital elevators for energy, however, humanity still continues to constantly fight wars and build up arms. A paramilitary organization called Celestial Being, equipped with incredibly powerful mobile suits called Gundams, fight in order to force humanity to unite and eradicate armed conflict.
Both Eureka Seven and Gundam 00 share similar mecha designs, color schemes, and very compelling story lines. If you liked one, then you're bound to like the other.
Firstly both anime use mechs and they hold symbolic importance to the stories. However the story rather then based on the mechs is centered on the people piloting them.The characters fuel the excitement of each series and you become engrossed in their lives.The plots are both fairly close to each other, but it is something a viewer must see to understand. Eureka Seven is more catered to romance while Gundam 00 is about ideals or understanding, but both contain these aspects and they share many others.
If you liked one of these series then your probably going to like the other one because both series deal with a small group of people working together to bring about some kind of change in the world through the use of mechas. Each series stays mainly focused on the male but will have a couple of episodes for the other supporting characters in each series. Romances of some sort develop in each series though the romance within Eureka Seven is much more expanded upon than that of the romances in Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Also within each series there tends to be more of a focus on the single main mech than the other mechas which usually play less significant roles. Also within each series the major opposing force is that of the larger world governments with independent factions only playing minor enemies for a couple of episodes.
