While both series center around a submarine and its crew, FMP has the millitary fighting terrorists, while in Mars Daybreak, the "terrorists" are fighting the millitary! If warfare is your thing, be sure to check both of them out.

FLCL

FLCL

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Although FMP and FLCL do not have a lot in common in terms of plot. Both series contain a lot of humour, action and mecha of course. It's not that they are similiar but they share the same kind of atmosphere, at leat in my opinion. Well, you never know until you try it. So go ahead, I'm positive that you will like it!

InuYasha The Movie 4: Fire on the Mystic Island

InuYasha The Movie 4: Fire on the Mystic Island

Fifty years ago, Inuyasha and Kikyo discovered the legendary Horai Island – a place which only appears out of the mists every few decades. During that time, they found several half-demon children who were subject to the demonic rule of the Four War Gods, but had to leave before they could do anything about the situation. In “modern” feudal times, the island reappears and one of the children escapes, seeking out Inuyasha to rescue them all from the Four War Gods. Can Inuyasha liberate the children with the help of the Tetsusaiga, before the island once again disappears into the mists?

The positions of the main male characters involve having to go around and protect the heroine of the series in InuYasha and Full Metal Panic. Both hero’s’ seem to be reluctant to do so and the series are filled with hilarious undertones.

These two anime connect partly by being broadly mech-related, but more truly through their vibrant humour and character development. Yukari's journey of self-discovery is not a million miles away from Kaname's, and maybe even Sosuke's. Bright, clear animation and an upbeat attitude; young pilots working with adults for realistic reasons; both of these anime are energetic and often laugh-out-loud funny.

Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun

Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun

Shungo is an extraordinary high school student; in addition to his studies, he’s been trained by his mercenary sister to be a top mercenary. Their newest task involves the Tsukimura siblings; both of them have the powers of a succubus, but Mayu has a slight problem: she suffers from androphobia – a fear of men! Shungo’s new objective is to help Mayu overcome this phobia and protect her from the men her succubus powers naturally draw to her; but this becomes more difficult once he becomes the guinea pig for social experiments involving Mayu, such as sharing the same bed and even bathing together! To make matters worse, the ever-growing popularity of Mayu at school and the student council president’s infatuation with Shungo only add to his workload!

both of these series are a slap-stick like comady full of action a little intense drama and a stong subtle story line. each anime has a good plot that you can try to figue out for your self whail still being presently surprised by the outcome. i strongly recommend each of these to anyone who is intrested in the other.
