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.
Besides both animes having a similar feeling; the mc in both are in a strange new place, being taken care of by a kind girl(s), have a power beyond anything of those around them and there are even little furry animals that seem out of place with the world exist. Also the whole overpowered mech thing.
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 animes are of the sci-fi and battle genre but besides that both stories are about strong young men (soilder types) are both stranded on a foreign plantet. With laws and customs which are hard for both protagonists to understand they both struggle to find their way in these strange new worlds.
But even more are the integral back plots to which in both something more dark and sinister is happening behind the scenes.
If you enjoyed either one of these animes I would definatly reckoment the other.
Haruka, the only known survivor of a cataclysmic global war, has taken refuge with a diverse group of sentient robots with distinct personalities. They attempt to survive in the desolate post-war environment; however their supplies are limited and the military robots are still active and hostile. Haruka remains optimistic that other humans may have survived the war, but their persistent search efforts have failed to locate any survivors. Is she destined to live her life without any human contact?
Both series take place in a post-apocaliptic Earth surronding the last remaining humans. In both there is an optismistic young girl *SLIGHT COMMUNICATION SPOILER who meets a man from outerspace SLIGHT COMMUNICATION SPOILER*. Both involve robot characters who help the protagonist.
Claude Kenni just wanted to shine free of his military father's shadow, a desire that made him take unnecessary risks. One of those risks whisked him off to an unknown planet full of monsters and magic. There, he met Rena Lanford, an energetic girl with mysterious abilites who believes he is a hero of legend. Soon, they're off on an expedition to find the cause of the monsters and the truth behind the sorcery globe all while hiding the technology he brought with him. Looks like Claude's got bigger shoes to fill than his father's!
I'm really surprised that no one at this point has made this connection - Star Ocean and Gargantia are extremely similar as far as a boy of science being forcibly transported to a more 'backwards' society that he has to get used to, while trying to find a way home.
