Synopsis:

It is the year 2267, and all that is left of humanity now lives in the 'Eden colony', a domed metropolis on the moon. Earth has long since been abandoned after a cataclysm left it uninhabitable... or so the inhabitants of Eden are led to believe. But when a young boy named Takeru discovers a photograph of a girl which appears to have been taken on Earth, he begins to doubt that this is the case. With the help of his friends, Takeru decides to visit Earth in search of the girl; despite the fact that it is against the strict laws of the colony and despite not knowing what awaits him there...

Akira

Akira
  • Movie (1 ep x 125 min)
  • 1988

Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.

When picking up either Akira or Freedom, it's inevitable that you'll think of the other. Why? Katsuhiro Otomo is involved in both projects, and the differences between the two in character design, concept, and overall feel are staggering. Even the bikes that the characters zip around in are similar. That being said, Freedom takes place in space and thus, has more of a sci fi feel to it.

Regardless, fans of one will almost surely enjoy the other.

The two movies drawing is very similar. Both has to do with speed and vechiles. I just loved the character drawing and the way they animated both of the films. The story I think has nothing in similar except the main characters's love towards racing and vechiles, and that both are utopia stories.

Planetes

Planetes

In the year 2075, humanity has spread to the stars, along with their technology, colonies, and... waste? At such great speeds in orbit, even a tiny bolt can cause a tragic disaster. Enter the team of the half division. Their job? To gather the garbage and debris that circles the Earth, in order to keep space safe. From broken-down satellites to bolts and nails, there's nothing that the underpaid and underappreciated staff can't salvage. Join Hachimaki, Tanabe, Fee, and the rest of the gang as they risk their lives to keep space clean, and keep their wallets... empty.

Why I recommend you to watch Planetes or Freedom is the fact that both animes revolve around dreams, emotions, hope and resolve, they kinda give of the same feeling while watching its hard to explain but they kind of remind me of another.

So I think if you enjoyed one of these animes you will enjoy the other one as well.

Both series propose their own approach of the relationship between mankind and space (conquest). Freedom is more shounenish. All in all, both are awesome space shows.

Venus Wars

Venus Wars
  • Movie (1 ep x 105 min)
  • 1989

Set in the 21st century on a recently terraformed Venus, Venus Wars is the story of a war between two opposing nations, and the effect it has on a group of teenagers. Dark and gritty, with an air similar to that of Akira, it focuses on coming of age during the midst of a planet's devastating war.

Venus Wars and Freedom are both gritty sci fi tales with fast bikes, badass characters, and a very similar look and feel. While Venus Wars is considerably older, fans of one will probably enjoy the other.

skankfish

The similarities are there, but Venus Wars will provide a much more complete, less commercial story.

Those who enjoy stories which take a look at the world from a distance and address its problems vicariously will enjoy both of these stories.

A Wind Named Amnesia

A Wind Named Amnesia
  • Movie (1 ep x 80 min)
  • 1990

At the height of civilization, mankind stretched its reach from the distant corners of the globe, to outer space. Man's fate took a turn for the worse when a sudden wind swept across the Earth, causing all human beings to lose every memory they owned, and in essence, their humanity. Now, in a primal world with no rules, one man must endeavor to survive, to discover the future of humankind.

Both stories have the strolling through a post-apocalyptic-world feel to them, although Freedom stays on the positive side. Amnesia takes a more Mad-Max route.

Jyu Oh Sei

Jyu Oh Sei

Thor and Rai are twins who live on an advanced space colony called ‘Juno’. Things take a nasty turn one day when they are kidnapped by the Federal Army’s Special Forces and abandoned on the hostile prison planet Chimera. A cycle on Chimera consists of 181 days of scorching heat and 181 nights of below-freezing temperatures – not to mention it is populated almost entirely by carnivorous plants. The convicts on Chimera have found only one means of survival – reverting back to the law of beasts. For the strong-willed Thor adjustment comes naturally; but for his naive and weaker brother Rai, things do not go as well. Thor must now use all his wits, strength and courage to endure life as a member of Chimeran society, rise above the rest, and take the only ticket off this planet: becoming the Beast King.

Both series for starters explore a world where the possibility of returning to Earth is the hope for those who live in the age. While in Freedom, the main focus is the discovery of the reasoning behind the secrecy of the state of Earth, Jyu oh Sei, instead draws the path to another planet which is kept secret from the main character. The exploration and mystery surrounding the hiding of these information ultimately make each series ideal for watching with each other.
