Alien Nine

Alien Nine

At a typical elementary school in Japan, yearly chores are being distributed. Yuri and 3 other students are chosen to be the beneficiaries of the alien hats for the year. Alien hats?! Yuri's sentiments, exactly. Despite her misgivings, she and her classmates must round up stray aliens that have escaped from a crashed spaceship -- with the help of the alien hats, of course.

Similar concept (young girl with alien symbiant fight other aliens) but with a completely different tone and style.
sothis
Figure 17 is highly focused on character development. Alien Nine doesn't really have a chance to do this, but both focus on a similar theme of little girls being controlled by aliens, to save the world from other bad aliens. Both, I think, have similar animation styles as well.
caweman
i think that both the series have the "insecure girl is forced to accept and do something good about the situation" type of feeling and if you liked one, you should realy try the other
MalteseFalcon

Alien Nine and Figure 17 both tell the tale of a young girl who ends up having to join with a symbiotic life form and defend a given area from aliens. Each follows the development of this girl as she attempts to come to terms with the new life this means for her.

KiraRin

Although Alien 9 is a much more in-your-face kind of headf**k, there is definitely something dark about Figure 17.

Alien 9 features a group of schoolgirls forced to team up with some frog like alien hats to defeat some nasty extraterrestrisal baddies. Figure 17 is a much more developed show, and focusses on the relationship between the main schoolgirl and her battle alien.

Both shows have a sugary sweet exterior, with a very dark inside. Don't be fooled be the cutesy animation style, be prepared for some sci-fi/horror.

thesonicfan21

They have a very similar theme of little girls fighting aliens. Although, Alien Nine has kids a little older while Figure 17 is much more appropiate for little kids. But yet, the characters have appretices to help them fight aliens on their adventures and conquer their fears of aliens or enemies.

Haibane Renmei

Haibane Renmei

A young woman quietly falls to the earth, escorted by a solitary crow. This sort of dream, as many other before have dreamed, comes just before being reborn as a Haibane, a charcoal-winged angel. On the outskirts of the walled-in city lies Old Home, a haven for Haibane to study, live, and learn, while waiting for their chance to ascend to the heavens and escape the confines of their new world. Rakka is the newest inhabitant of Old Home who wants nothing more than to remember her past and discover the secrets of her kind. Together with Reki, Kuu and plenty of other new friends, Rakka will laugh, explore, and search for the meaning of their existence in the process.

A similar slice-of-life feeling and some of the same girl-faces-world undertones. A great series.
sothis
Haibane Renmei and Figure 17 both are fairly slow series, which deal with the development and growth of a female protagonist. Figure 17 deals with aliens, Haibane with the afterlife, per say... both are fantastic series.
Nocturnalgloria

Haibane Renmei and Figure 17 are essentially about overcoming emotional withdrawal and learning how to connect with others. In both cases the main character is faced with a new environment and must learn how to adjust as well as how to gain self confidence. Forging bonds and dealing with loss are at the core of these two series, even though Figure 17 has a strong sci-fi element that is absent from the highly mysterious Haibane Renmei. In both series the pieces of slice of life are priceless and blend perfectly with the rural atmosphere that makes for lively sceneries in Figure 17 and lush settings in HR. These are very bittersweet and highly emotional efforts that share a lot of themes; fans of one are likely to enjoy the other.

Figure 17 and Kurau both have the same kind of tone and feel: slice of life, combined with sci-fi action and fantasy. In addition, both focus around the same concept of longing for a partner and friend. If you liked one, you'd probably like the other.
sothis

I'm not sure what it was about Figure 17 and Kurau that reminded me of each other -- but they definitely feel the same. Both involve otherworldly beings who integrate with society in some way, and have a deep sense of character development and self growth. Both, as well, deal with sci fi elements that blend nicely with the overall story. If you liked one, try out the other!

So, you have watched Figure 17? And you liked the situation where a girl is fighting for herself and her friends? Or did you enjoy the fighting? Anyway, to you, i recommend, a must-see: Angelic Layer. Both series touched me in that special way that not all animes are able to do, and while there are some major differences between them i beleve that i pointed out some of the simmilarities in my previous questions. Watch it, you wont be disappointed, i promise.
