In a post-apocalyptic world overrun with great beasts called Filth Monsters, a glimmering dome protrudes from the wasteland.

Nina Antalk, military student and leader of the 17th Platoon, is intent on recruiting only the best; thus, when mysterious Layfon Alseif transfers to the academy, she instantly recognizes his abilities and decides he’s the perfect candidate to join her group.

If you liked Full Metal Panic's protagonist Sagara's unque character, you might also like Chrome Shelled Regios.
Both series have very strong protagonist characters. A male hero and his woman counteractor. Defending cities from alien life form, securing resources so city can live in the wastelands.
Both of these anime's are superb.The characters and plot are engaging. They have similar characters. Sousuke/Layfon, Nina/Mao, Tessa/Felli, Kurtz/Sharnid.
Also, they are similar in the fact that they are teens involved in a military organization that protects the world/city
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.

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!
Both of these shows have some what similar action in that they both invole mechs and they are both animes that are action based but still have a good amount of romance in them
If you liked one of these series then you're most likely to like the other series as well because both sereis have this small mercenary type of force that use mechs to fight battles and defeat there opponents. Each series also deals a lot with the romance between the two main characters and the awkwardness as their relationships develop. Each series also has a strong supporting cast of characters that contribute a lot to the series in terms of action, comedy, and story telling.
With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...
I think both anime share some of the same humor, and I would also say that that the feeling is werry similar in both the series. I also find a similarity in the main characters. I know it pehaps isn't obvious, but I think it's there, and that you would like the other if you liked one of htem.
Bot hanime are very funny and the two "heroes" of those anime are very different from ordinary peeople. So if you like funny and intensive series you have to watch both.

FMP and Jinki have more in common than just the mecha; there's the similar character relationships, missions, and overall military feel that make each of these unique to each other. If you liked one, try out the other.
Both have a very high military feel to them with wonderful missions to go with it. The character interactions are fun to watch and figure out what's going on. Jinki revolves a little more around their mecca's than FMP does. If you liked one check out the other.
