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!
Agito was born into a world that is quite different than our own. Many years ago a brilliant researcher attempted to save humanity from its excessively damaged environment by altering the DNA of plants. However, these mentally-awakened plants recognized the inherent threat of humans, and attacked them; the end result was a stalemate between the forest and the few remaining human centers. Agito's home city is green with life because the forest controls it. There is an uneasy peace which is facilitated by a small number of humans that allowed the forest to alter them to be in concert with itself. Being that his father is one of those, Agito's view of the forest is not one of fear but rather one that respects the human dependency. Agito will be challenged to prove this relationship when a random event gives the humans, who still see the forest as an enemy, a new perceived advantage in their war.
I watched Origin the other day, adn the whole time I was thinking "This remind me of Eureka 7". Both show how humans destory the world and the wrold turing on them. The lead females are also similar, both being from another time or place. They also show what love makes people do, whether it be good or bad.
Not only do "Origin: Spirits of the Past" and "Eureka Seven" have similar plots, but both animes take place in worlds that are beyond imagination. Between the character designs, and the storylines, I'm sure you will enjoy both animes.
Both Eureka Seven and Origin have a similar plot, the world is at odds with nature. Both have a young protagonist who has lived in a relatively peaceful place all his life, until a strange girl drops into his world and turns it on its head. Both have themes of growing up and taking responsibilty as well as preserving the bond between man and nature.
Ayato Kamina may seem like an average boy in a devastated world, but after being captured by TERRA, a military organization set on saving the world from the Mu, an alien race set on "tuning" the world, he realizes he is an instrument in deciding the fate of humanity and piloting RahXephon. Not only is Ayato the only person who can control the mecha, but he also has a terrible fate of his own. Holding onto memories of his old life and grasping to keep his own humanity, he must struggle in this new world and realize his true potential with RahXephon.
As is pretty obvious by the screenshots both animes involve mecha. The great thing about these two animes is that they are both a mystery until some of the very last episodes. I will say that RahXephon has a lot more wtf moments in it towards the end, but if you take the time to understand it, its great. RahXehpon and Eureka Seven also both contain great love stories. There is also a heavy presence of the military in both shows.
Both RahXephon and Eureka Seven are post-NGE mecha anime. Surprisingly both are quite good and providing lots of action and some decent characters. If you liked one of those two, you probably should give the other a try. Since both of those anime were produced by Bones, they are somewhat similar. However, in the long run, the story and characters are different, but I believe that is a good thing. I mean, what fun would be watching the same thing twice?
Eureka Seven and RahXephon are similar in many ways, from animation to mechas and even parts of the story, but I have to admit that E7 is like RahXephon on crack, you just cannot put them in the same league. Still, if you like mechas, strong emotions and a somewhat slow-paced story, then RahXephon is a must-see of the genre.
In the early 21st century, certain people are exhibiting signs of B-cell growth, a condition that is incurable. Yuji is one of these, who chooses to become a "Sleeper" -- a person who is put into stasis until a cure can be found. The tranquillity of Yuji's sleep is interrupted 15 years in the future, in a very different world. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating its resources, and.. human beings. Now all Yuji can do is escape through the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, towards Second Earth... mankind's new home in space.
Both stories revolve around two normal guys, both of which start their stories as complete noobs but later find out that destiny has a lot more in store for them.
If you liked Eureka Seven, you might also like this one. The Blue Gender has a tragic, love, mechas, passion, unforeseen plot turns.
Blue Gender is a masterpiece series among other Mecha Series.
Middle school student Ganta Igarashi witnessed the slaughter of his entire class by the mysterious 'Red Man', and as the only survivor, he was labeled a mass murderer and sentenced to death. Now an inmate at the privately-owned prison and ‘amusement park' known as Deadman Wonderland, Ganta must try to survive in a place where inmates are the main attraction in brutal gladiator-style games. At the same time, he must attempt to uncover the truth behind the ‘Red Man', his mysterious childhood friend Shiro, and why he was the only survivor that bloody day.
The main character is very similar. I only recommened these two, because of the similarities of the main characters, both physical and personality wise.
They have the "awkward boy hero" and "mysterious young girl" interaction in common, yes, and that's cool. However, the reason I started watching Deadman Wonderland was due to the similarity of the art. If you thought Eureka Seven was crazy pretty to look at, then you'll probably enjoy watching Deadman Wonderland, and vis versa. Deadman Wonderland is a bit more gruesome though, and you don't get teary "that's soo cute" moments every episode like in Eureka Seven.
As an orphan whose life is in the hands of space pirates, Coud has had no choice but to survive on bravado alone. He has nothing to live for until he finds Ren entombed amongst the treasures in the pirate ship's hold, and awakens her. In addition to being mysterious and beautiful, Ren can transform into a battle sword to help Coud fight and prove his strength -- but with this strength comes the bitter realization that power alone is not enough. Now, in a race against time, Coud must endure betrayals and fierce battles as he struggles to return Ren to her home, before it's too late...
Both series are about fights, of course there's a great difference between the two of them, but they have in common a great love story between the two main characters, if you liked the relationship between eureka and Renton you'll also like the great relationship of Ren and Coud, both relationship gives a great feeling when you see how their love grows up and becomes stronger. Also Coud and Renton are always protecting their girls from any danger, and they suffer when they fail to protect Ren and Eureka. Also the relationship between human and beings which aren't human (coralian, in the case of eureka, and the edhil raids, in the case of erementar gerad), is also a big point in common, so you'll pretty sure like one if you liked the other.
I made this reccomendation because of the similarites in the storeyline; (1st)Two main characters on a joney,(2nd) two main characters control a great power and (3rd) both animes end with the changing of the world for the better. most important reason both are excilent animes.
