Synopsis:

In the future, babies are no longer born - they're grown. The crew of the newly developed spaceship Bilkis has been sent to investigate a mysterious "ring" that has shown up in Earth's orbit. Hand-picked through careful gene selection, the crew covers the area of skills needed to complete the mission. Except for ensign Mika Seido, whose gene-type is "white" - undefined.

Vandread

Vandread

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!

Same as in Geneshaft you will find Mecha battles in Vandread. Vandread discusses the relation between man and woman since here it is not gene manipulation but the separation of men and women in the foreground. I think both series are very similar in their structure although Geneshaft has its very unique music and graphical implementation while Vandread sticks more to the old-fashioned anime drawing styles.
sublime
Futuristic romp with none too disimilar plots. Both involve the seperation of the sexes, women being portrayed as the more dominant. Fighting against an unknown alien force. Romance undertones touched on in Vandread don't carry through as much to Geneshaft however, with Vandread being a tad comedic at times.

Ohhhhhhhh yeah.... Babes in futuristic jumpsuits... *drool* *ahem* Anyway, while Geneshaft is the darker and more serious of the two, it still has a bit of the lightheartedness that VanDread enjoys. Both are about battles with mysterious artifacts, for the future of humanity. Both have men and women separated, albeit in different ways, and explore what effect this has on relationships. Both also use CG to good effect in space battles (Geneshaft has the edge on VanDread in this regard, imho).

Vandread definitely comes to mind when thinking of Geneshaft. The two share many similarities about a future where men and women are seperated, of sorts... and are discriminated against for reasons that make up their very being. Vandread definitely has a more comical feel at times, but both contain a great deal of CGI, and have touching moments which will get to you. In addition, I think you will get a similar feel from watching both of these.

Setting for both animes are pretty much parallel with each other. Males and females are separated and the human race has colonized space. The one thing that I think make Geneshaft and Vandread similar is the conflict. In both series some philosophy is handed out and the conflicts can be compared. Each protagonist has to cope with an unknown. This unknown is the antagonist. I'm sure if you had enjoyed one of these, you would enjoy the other. Only thing that you should be worried about is a lighter approach in Vandread. There are loads, heaps, and tons of sexual tension and other random flak that are not present in Geneshaft.
Baeron

Both Vandread, and Geneshaft can be described as follows: a misfit team formed from the start with a select crew, and a Wild Card of hope. Forsaken from their homes, they must cleave a passage through space against an unknown attacking force, as they cope with the ideals of their communities. They must also learn what it means to exist, on their path to discovering themselves, and saving humanity.

Both muse on the structure of their respective societies: Vandread on the relationships between men and women, and Geneshaft with the ideology of "production-line" humans.

I believe that if you liked one, the other will interest you with its similar background, yet distinctly different outcomes. These similarities and divergences are spawned from the production of humans through machines. It's as if they met, looked at each other, and then decided to go down sibling roads...

Infinite Ryvius

Infinite Ryvius

What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...

I found that I enjoyed both of these series immensely. This is due to the fact that there are similar plot complications and theme between them. Take for example the setting, both in the future with space exploration. One of the nifty things that are similar is the Vital Guarder and The Shaft. I have to say, it seems like they're both taken from the same idea. So anyways, if you liked one of these, you'll like the other. Battle scenes, ships, other worldly beings, and touch of humanity's questions are included in both these series.

If you liked the slow, "realistic" space-mech battles of Ryvius, you will find some similar ones with Geneshaft.

Both series share a certain sci-fi feel that's not entirely dystopic, but yet conveys the feeling that it's a future best avoided - you'll see political intrigue as the mysteries behind the characters unfolds, with both titles having epic proportions that threatens the world.

Burst Angel

Burst Angel

In the future, Tokyo has fallen victim to syndicates, trigger-happy people who run rampant and other groups who don't like to follow the rules. In response, an organization called RAPT has been created, whose goal is to maintain their definition of "peace". In the underground, however, science involving humans and powerful mechanics is progressing at a steady phase, but for what purpose? Meet our four angels who know how to kick butt and raise hell whenever it's needed. Their motto? Shoot first, talk later. Their mission? To make the seemingly impossible possible, of course...

Koboi

A girl in an advance fighting machine, either in a violent tokyo (Burst Angel) or in space agains alien (Geneshaft). A lot of very nice fighting sceens, and an underlying mystery are the reason that you'll like both series. Now, geneshaft is more technology driven and asks question about genetically engineered, while Burst angel has a more funny side to it.

Crest of the Stars

Crest of the Stars

In the distant future, mankind has mastered space and spread empires across the galaxy. While many choose to colonize distant planets, others choose to remain amidst the stars, ultimately giving rise to a new brand of humanity known as the Abh. Both genetically and culturally different from their Earth-dwelling peers, the Abh soon find themselves engaged in a bloody war that rages across hundreds of planets and set out to restore peace by means of conquest. Enter Jinto, a nobleman and ambassador of the recently acquired Hyde system whose duty is to represent his peoples' interests and rule on the Abh's behalf. In order to be officially coronated to this position, a cold-but-beautiful Abh princess named Lafiel arrives at Hyde to escort him back to the empire's capital. When they are suddenly attacked by an anti-Abh liberation front, however, the festivities are cut short, and the two must flee for their lives against all odds.
