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!
Hitomi was just a normal high school girl, until she was taken by the mysterious Van Fanel and dropped into a world of romance, magic and giant sword-wielding armor suits! Now Van, pilot of the famed armor suit Escaflowne; and Hitomi, whose hobby of predicting the future just became a frightening reality, must work together and fight the advanced technology of Zaibach: a force who want to shape Gaea to their visions of "peace". Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.
Eureka Seven and Escaflowne are two anime that have the best of both worlds: robots and fighting for the guys and romance and character relationships for the girls. Both of these in both anime are executed very well and balance the story out. So, in a way, Eureka Seven is like Escaflowne for a new generation. If you like Eureka Seven, then you'll like Escaflowne.
If you liked one of these series then you'd probably like the other because each series deal with worlds in which the villain is trying to recreate the world by extreme means. Each also has mechs but unlike in other series where you may get an episode with hundreds of mechs in a single episode in these series they deal with much smaller numbers at anytime but in each case always having a few really strong enemy mechs that stay around of several episodes if not the entire series. Each series also deal a lot with romance that builds up over time instead of the characters annoucing their love for each within the first couple of episodes giving it a somewhat more real feeling.
What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...
Young characters, strange living mecha, mysterious enemies, rogue ships with interesting crews, and youthfully awkward love.
I couldn't help but think of Infinite Ryvius while watching Eureka Seven. Although very different shows, the characters, interactions, and development between the two casts are very comparable. Both shows manage to develop a large cast very well, both with younger teen leads. There's also a lot of angst in these shows, but hey, people have issues right? The payoff for both is really incredible.
The universe of the future is divided between the Earth Alliance and ZAFT. After a year of war, ZAFT attacks the neutral colony Heliopolis to steal five prototype mobile suits. The mission is a success, but a young man named Kira stumbles upon the fifth Gundam, and he may be the Alliance's only hope...
Other than the common theme of mecha and military combat, a huge similarity between Gundam SEED and Eureka Seven are the characters. Both series allow drama to arise based on the character's personal issues, quirks, and personalities that just can't mix. Characters go through phases of hate, jealousy, and confusion until the goal before them is finally clear.
Both of the series are based on a scale of war and within that war are those that fight for a reason they cannot understand. They search for a reason to fight. They find that reason to fight in the protection of those they care for. A similar idea behind both series just a different way of getting it across.
When Haruka, Yuu and their friends decided to go ghost hunting, they had no idea the "ghosts" they'd find would turn their lives upside down. Black-clad and wielding quantum powers, these knights from the future are after an artifact of immense power that they hope will save their dimension from destruction: the Dragon Torque; and Haruka seems to be the key. As factions within the knights violently disagree on how to proceed, Haruka and the gang are caught up in a fight with the Shangri La, in an existential battle where fates of entire universes are decided.
Noein and E7 remind me a lot of each other. Not only do both have a good plot involving a bit of futuristic science, but the mix of emotions ranging from sadness and despair to hope and love make these two a great recommendation for each other.
Both Eureka Seven and Noein have confusing stories where you don't understand a lot until the very end. Also, the main characters have similar complex feelings. The story in these two anime is mostly similar because if there are no battles, it's the sentimental life of the main character that becomes the main plot. If you liked one, you will certainly love the other.
Fourteen years ago, an environmental disaster known as the "Hammer of Eden"” devastated the planet – taking with it six billion lives, and submerging 90% of the world underwater. In the present, the remaining countries have formed a new United Nations in hopes of peace. Gould, a submarine captain, wishes to use military force to obtain this goal, while Aoi, the secretary general of the UN, believes in the power of diplomacy. In this world, Keel and Teen are twin siblings who, through a series of events, travel separately with Gould and Aoi. Together, they seek to answer the same question: is war the only way to attain peace, or can people learn to set aside their differences and negotiate?
Not only do both anime deal with main characters who are suddenly brought onboard rebel ships. Both protagonists in Eureka Seven, and Tide-Line Blue are trying to figure out what they want, while trying to persuade negotiation rather than war. If you like one, you will like the other.
The main actors of Tide-Line Blue (Kneel) Eureka Seven (Renton) are very similar and mentality and appearance. Both are involved in a romance. Both stories are about avoiding war.
