Synopsis:

Following a disastrous event known as "The Second Impact," humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. Having not completely eradicated mankind previously, creatures known as Angels begin attacking once more in an attempt to create a third, and final, catastrophe which will annihilate mankind once and for all. When conventional weapons fail to stop the Angels, however, the Japanese military organization NERV proposes the use of strange mecha called Evangelions. When the first Evangelion rejects its pilot, though, NERV's commander is forced to draft his estranged son, Shinji, as mankind's savior. Bitter of his father's estrangement and insecure in his abilities, Shinji struggles to overcome his doubts and fears in the face of certain death, but ultimately continues to fall short despite his efforts. As he slowly improves his skills, however, he must come to terms with the greatest question of all: is humanity worth saving after all?

A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs.

Quite basically, both of these titles are predominantly classic 90s sci-fi anime given more modern animation - notably more CGI. The Evangelion title also reworks the plot somewhat as it is part of a general remake of the franchise, while the Ghost in the Shell title is basically just a special edition of the original film, but if you want to see another iconic 1990s anime title with a new look after seeing one of these titles, the other would hardly hurt.

RahXephon

RahXephon

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.

Both mecha shows have a lot in common apart form their respective eponymous mecha. Both can be rather obdurant, making casual viewing a bit annoying, and there are conspiracies left and right, nebulous organisations and large casts full of people that really are too young to be in a military context. The mecha designs are rather similar, and the enemy designs are pretty out there.

There's a larger mystical theme (Christianity in EVA and musical terms in RahXephon) that serves to set them apart from a lot of other mecha anime — but obviously not each other. People that like one of these and want a similar viewing experience would do well to check the other one out.

Sergeant Frog

Sergeant Frog

As the mighty star fleet of the planet Keron prepare their invasion of Earth, Sergeant Keroro and his elite team of commandos have been sent to infiltrate the enemy strongholds and gather as much intelligence as possible. However, it seems even his extensive military training is no match for the forces of Earth, as he is discovered and captured by the two middle school siblings, Fuyuki and Natsumi. Submitted to the rigorous torture of housework duty, the amphibious Keroro must now bide his time, covertly locate his squad-mates, and resume his mission of conquest!

If you liked SGT Frog or Evangelion you'll like the other because most of the human characters in SGT Frog are parodys of Evangelion characters. Fuyuki is a parody of Shinji and Natsumi is a parody of Asuka and Aki is a parody of Misato and so on. There's also an episode where they Evangelion itself as well as the characters. By the way it should be noted that SGT Frog is intended to be watched by children and Evangelion wasn't though that shouldn't hinder you from enjoying ether show.

Serial Experiments Lain

Serial Experiments Lain

"I have only abandoned my body, I still live here" - are the words emailed to friends of Chisa, several days after her death by suicide. As Lain delves deeper into the world of the "Wired" (also known as the internet), the line between it and reality becomes more and more unclear. Close the world, open the nExt.

These titles can each be rather hard to get your head around. If you want to have a series that makes you think in order to understand it completely, these fit well.
