A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs. Is he an evil genius, or could he signal the beginning of a new age in the relationship between man and machine?
While on the hunt for an underage hacker, Faye is the sole witness to identifying a man who causes a tanker explosion that leaves people up to three miles away in comas. The bounty that ensues is the largest the galaxy has EVER seen, 300,000,000 wulongs. It's up to Spike and the gang to solve the mystery of this strange disease, and to stop the assailant at large, for failure would result in all life on Mars being eliminated on Halloween night.
The Cowboy Bebop movie and Ghost in the Shell have a lot in common: high production values, sci-fi settings, great action scenes, well-developed characters, similar moral themes, and a great plot. If you liked one you will definitely like the other.
I gave up smoking, but after I saw these movies I couldn't help but light up and enjoy the benefits of my health. The two stories are on similar ground: Ghost in the Shell and Cowboy Bebop Movie are both set in the future, have a good cop/cowboy and bad guy/hacker theme, and have constant psychological hoo-hah about the human mind and the levels that relationships are built on. Nonetheless, the animation in both is bliss; with fight scene after fight scene, smoke after smoke, and plenty of sharp wit, these two are a must see.
The characters in Cowboy Bebop (the movie) and Ghost in Shell are relatively similar in the same good guy/bad guy fashion. Also the thematic concepts involved add to each of the plots and move the shows along set in the future.
When an odd string of suicides begins to occur at a local high rise building, most of the townsfolk treat it as an unfortunate series of events. One girl, however, senses something more sinister at work - especially when a close friend of hers falls mysteriously ill. After witnessing one of the deaths for herself, Shiki begins to realize that a strange connection exists between each of the girls, and predicts a total of eight will die. With seven dead and the accuracy of her prediction unclear, she sets out to put an end to the killings. Yet, as she nears the truth, she finds herself closer and closer to the brink of death; will Shiki become the town's savior, or the next victim?
If your after a strong female lead, then these two anime both offer that. While they have largely different basis for their storyline, the same style of storytelling mixed with action means that it's actually comfortable to sit and watch one if you've seen the other. Throw in two amazing soundtracks and your pretty much sorted. Go watch!
Both animes focus heavily upon their lead character whom in both cases is a powerful and headstrong woman. They even share very similar character designs for their respetive leads!
These series have a very similar feel, a fairly bloody story, and very similar lead females. On top of that they attempt to impart some philosophy into the stories.
Both animes have a strong female lead, both the female leads are killing machines in there own way. Overall the animes are both realy good and u should check out the other if u liked one
After the third world war, the organization known as the General Management Control Office constructed the city of Olympus – the only place where chaos and anarchy doesn’t hold sway. It seems unthinkable that terrorists are out to disrupt this pristine society, but the threat becomes very real to SWAT officers Deunan and Briareos when their squad mates are killed during a hostage situation. Bent on catching the lone escaped terrorist, they soon find themselves involved in a plot to undermine the whole existence of their Olympus.
The same person (Masamune Shirow) wrote the manga that both Appleseed and Ghost in the Shell are based upon. If you liked one, chances are that you will like the other.
Both Appleseed and GITS were written by the same guy, and both feature a hot girl as the main character. I prefer the Major in GITS, but Deunan in Appleseed is cute in an 80s kind of way. Appleseed is a little lighter than GiTs, although both are at the pinnacle of animated storytelling
Both of these anime explore the futuristic possiblity and to a certain extent the effects of cybernectic and biological engineering. Also, the artistic work drawn in both of them will feel familiar (they're both done by Shirow Masamune) and this helps you watch one with easy if you enjoyed the artwork. In addition both series portray the events of some sort of agenda that goes against the system.
Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
Ghost In The Shell really focuses on the relationship between man and machine. This is also the centerpoint of Chobits, although this topic progresses at a much slower pace. One might also say both series have smooth animation.
These series both have android/computer controlled robots all around the world. If you find that aspect, or some of the moral reprocussions which that would cause being disected, then these series go well together. GitS is a lot more action based, however.
These could almost be set in the same universe. A world of amazing technology, but where human life seems to hold little value.
Both Mardock Scramble and GitS paint a bleak view of our future, were transhumanism and technological advances do very little to alleviate the suffering for those at the bottom levels of society. Both movies feature a female main character who are 'rebuilt' using technology, and the stories revolve around police officers working a case.
Both are incredibly visually appealing movies that deftly creates a compelling future, and even though they were created 15 years apart they still have a similar feel as far as aesthetics are concerned. Fans of either would do well to check out the other.
They both exist in a dark future where technological modification flurishes. Both focus on the struggles of modified female leads trying to define their humanity and the value of life in society.
