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.

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...

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.
