In 2400 AD, three hundred years since the beginning of the war between humanity and the Crest race, mankind was conquered by their invaders; in the present, there is still deep-rooted hostility between the races. When a spaceship is sent on a distress call and subsequently destroyed by the ship it’s after, only two people, Galory and the cyborg Nikolai, make it out alive. The attacking ship, it seems, has been taken over by a violent and destructive Type-38 automaton, and it’s up to Galory to put a stop to it. Along with the fiery Crest girl named Althea, Galory and Nikolai will launch into the lair of danger to find any survivors and take down the Type-38.
In the distant reaches of the galaxy, the all-female Solnoids and alien Paranoids, two advanced civilizations, have been at war for centuries. In the midst of a battle, a SOS is sent for the Solenoid fleet to protect a newly-terraformed planet from its enemies; but during the escape, one ship was left behind, crippled and wounded. With only a handful of survivors left, the Star Leaf must now race against the clock to rendevous at Planet Chaos... that is, until something goes terribly wrong.
Gall Force and Good morning Althea are very similar in a way due to the fact there had, or has been a long on going war between two stellar races.
A startling relation between two people in each race, starts up.
Both are 80's glitzy action pieces with futuristic machines, and flashy explosions.
Everyone is excited about the prospects of the awesome new tank-busting Madox battlesuit -- everyone except for lieutenant Kilgore, who has suffered defeat upon defeat during prototype testing. His opportunity for revenge comes swiftly, however, as the truck carrying Madox-01 suit suffers an accident, dropping the war machine into another truck owned by mechanic Sujimoto Koji. Unable to resist the temptation of playing with this new toy, Koji unwittingly becomes locked in the suit and is now hunted by the military, including Lt. Kilgore himself!
Well first off one of the obvious similarities is these are both mecha titles. They also clock in at a similar time frame, and are one shot OAV's.
The machines involved are wearable armor, and both have a small romantic entanglement. Althena, is a alien/human one, and Madox is a High School student just trying to make it to a date.
being that they are OAV's the animation quality is similar, but not top notch for this period.
You could derive the same enjoyment from one if you liked the other.
