In the distant future, mankind has colonized the galaxy on a number of platforms known as islands, governed by a ruling class known as the Aristocrat Alliance. However, internal struggles for power lead to a bloody civil war, which eventually leads to both the creation of a much stricter order that calls itself the Holy Empire, and the exiling of the old royal family. Despite overwhelming losses and heavy numerical disadvantages, a rebellion continues even after the war comes to a close; the future continues to look bleak. Yet, when all hope seems lost, the last remnants of the royal family return with a mysterious "glass fleet," joining the rebels and turning the tides of battle once more.
D'Eon is a French nobleman bent on serving his Divine Majesty Louis the XIV to the best of his abilities, following in the footsteps of his beloved sister Lia de Beaumont. However, his straight-forward role with the secret police is interrupted by the sudden death of his sister while on a diplomatic mission in foreign lands. In his desire to find the truth of her murder, he comes before the King and becomes closely entwined in the mysterious organization known as Le Secret du Roi. He quickly finds himself embroiled in a realm of spiritual energy where death is a gate to greater powers and the Psalm of the King brings destruction in its wake. D'Eon must ask himself what is the price of truth and who will pay it, as the French Revolution looms inevitably nearer.
Somehow, the main plot is around siblings, politics, cross-dressing and so much talk about idealistics ways to freedom the people. In fact, the main characters are really alike themselves.
The HUGHE difference is about the time of the settings, chevalier is on pre-revolutionary France and glass fleet is in a futuristic space empire.
If you enjoyed Glass Fleet (Glass no Kantai), for sure Chevalier will be gorgeous for you. And the otherway too!
Although Le Chevalier D'Eon and Glass Fleet have very different settings they actually have alot in common. The both share a theme of questioning who has a right to rule and how much power/freedom people should have. Even though Glass Fleet has a sci-fi setting the politcal system is very similar to that of the 18th century Europe portrayed in Le Chevalier D'Eon. Both shows also feature some exciting sword fights.
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Both Geass and glass fleet deal with a rebellion led by a person who's somewhat of an anti-hero (In glass fleet that person would be Cleo, although he hasn't been leading anything from what I've seen so far, he's definitely a savior). They also seem to be similar in the way that they dress sort of medieval style (and ride horses) even though they take place in the distant future. Glass Fleet doesn't seem to have as much comedy as Geass, so it probably is better for a more mature audience.
In the world of Prestal, Noble men perform noble deeds for noble purposes. All of this is performed under the careful gaze of the Guild, a race apart who live in cities in the sky. We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.
Last exile and Glass fleet have a very simmilar feel to me, in terms of people trying to fulfill a dream, Cleo and the captain from last exile also have allmost the exact same feel. I beleive if you liked one you would like the other.
