In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.
Agito was born into a world that is quite different than our own. Many years ago a brilliant researcher attempted to save humanity from its excessively damaged environment by altering the DNA of plants. However, these mentally-awakened plants recognized the inherent threat of humans, and attacked them; the end result was a stalemate between the forest and the few remaining human centers. Agito's home city is green with life because the forest controls it. There is an uneasy peace which is facilitated by a small number of humans that allowed the forest to alter them to be in concert with itself. Being that his father is one of those, Agito's view of the forest is not one of fear but rather one that respects the human dependency. Agito will be challenged to prove this relationship when a random event gives the humans, who still see the forest as an enemy, a new perceived advantage in their war.
Gargantia and Origin are sci-fi anime set in lush, richly detailed worlds with unusual environments. Common to both is the idea that mankind ruined its own environment through experimentation, and the current era of humanity has adapted to profound changes in Earth's environment. Two stories about quests to discover relics from the past, there are many similarities between Gargantia and Origin that make them natural recommendations for each other.
Both take place where one character comes from a futuristic past. Both characters have to learn and understand the new world that they live in along with learning to coexist with the enviroment that they are not accustomed to
In a far and distant future, men and women have become mortal enemies. Each living on seperate planets, an interstellar war is being fought between the two very different peoples. Hibiki, a mere 3rd class worker, finds himself in the middle of a huge space battle, facing the nemesis of mankind: Womankind!
both are set in the future in space where humans have left earth years ago and are now at war. each main chharacter is a boy who has a mecha
Both Vandread and Gargantia have mecha featured, but in neither case is the giant robot the star of the show. If you are seeking a show about characters with a "mecha "feel and subplot, these two anime are Mecha Lite shows, both without the drama and angst generally associated with mecha-driven shows.
When a giant robot suddenly attacks the city, a high-school student named Aoba is saved by a classmate who’s piloting her own mecha. After accepting an offer to join the alliance she's is a part of, Aoba is thrust into the middle of high-flying robot warfare!
Both of these shows features a main character who gets thrust through time, into a strange world with conflicts that he knows nothing about. While Gargantia features more sci-fi/fantasy elements, and is much better looking due to its huge budget, i think fans of one may find the other worth looking into, especially if one enjoys mecha.
Kazuki Yotsuga is able to see things that others can't; in his visions, giant robots battle it out in the streets, causing massive damage in their wake. Though his visions have made him an outcast from the rest of his peers, they have attracted the attention of Ken Sanada – a physicist who believes Kazuki’s visions are a gateway into a parallel world! He places Kazuki into one of his inventions and accidentally sends him to the parallel world in his visions, where he finds himself in the middle of a war for control of the world! Kazuki must now become a pilot of one of the robots in order to join the fight for peace, all the while trying to find his way back to his own world…
The Basic consept of both these animes are pretty much the same like the Scene of what happens in thad period so if you liked eather one youd like the one you didnt watch yet just trust me >:3
( Tried not to spoil sorry if its unclear ).
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. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. 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 series explore a futuristic world with mechs and adverse living conditions where humanity must learn to get along with an "alien" threat that they fear and don't fully understand. The protagonists are very different, but both series introduce you to a large cast of diverse and likable characters who help to support the protagonists through hard times.
Also explored are the themes of human modification and an extreme submission to authority, showing the development of the protagonists in how they must find who they truly are, and what they are fighting for.
If you liked one, you will definintely enjoy the other.
