If you liked the Guilty Crown anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
In a world where everyone connects to an online network, pudgy Haruyuki Arita can't seem to catch a break. Constantly bullied, afraid to face reality and paranoid his two childhood friends pity him, the teenager uses online games as a way to escape his problems. But things change one day when Haruyuki's beautiful upperclassman Kuroyukihime approaches him with a mysterious time-decelerating program known as Brain Burst - there‘s just one catch. To keep the ability, he must defeat other Brain Burst wielders in Accel World, an exclusive, virtual MMORPG, and the newbie player will need all the help he can get. Eager to prove he's not a pathetic weakling, Haruyuki joins forces with Kuroyukihime to challenge fierce competitors and discover just how incredible Accel World and he truly are.
Both anime take place in a futuristic setting. Both have the same kind of feeling to them. Both of the leading females are beautiful, popular, and out of the main character's league.
They both contain a crybaby male protagonist on a journey to something rather badass. The story of each are very interesting. However, I would recommend watching at least 3 of Accel World to get into it, and when Guilty Crown seems to be going a bit bad, deal with it because it's definitely worth it!
The male protaganists and female protaganists from Aquarion Evol and Guilty Crown have the same voice actors, which shows in the fact that the male and female protaganists from both shows share a similar chemistry. Aquarion Evol has a bit more fanservice and mechas than Guilty Crown, although they are not entirely absent in GC. In my opinion, AE is also a lot cheesier than GC. A Japanese friend told me that a lot of girls loved watching GC, while guys enjoyed AE more, Even though these two anime are very different, they are also very similar, so if you like one, you will surely like the other.TL;DR if you liked Guilty Crown, go watch Aquarion Evol. If you liked Aquarion Evol, go watch Guilty Crown.
Both Aquarion Evol and Guilty Crown have the same storygoal, they need to save the world. The two boy main characters are kind alike, they want their girls more than anything. Interesting unnatural powers shown in both and the mechas makes it more epic. I had goose bumps in every fightingscene because of the great animations and the epic music in both of the animes.
So if you enjoyed anyone of those, go watch the other one asap!
Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
The main characters are similar. Shu has a huge ego like Light Yagami. They both get cocky. Both of the animations are amazing. Makoto seemed like he would be like L but he wasn't so smart. Just weird and crazy.
Shu has a huge ego like Light Yagami. They both get cocky. Both of the animations are amazing, but if u watch them u can see that guilty crown is in a higher lvl of image quality.
Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!
While the resemblance between these anime is not so striking at first, believe me when I say they have a lot in common: kid joins terroristic group led by a stubborn young man of great ambition and meets mysterious girl with superpowers. Ancient conspiracies and mecha are also pretty important in both (though the mecha element is way heavier in ES). Many characters seems to have some counterpart in the other series, and have some problems with their development. Oh, and both start getting weirder as the end draws near.
If you liked one, try out the other.
This was the first anime i thought of when watching Guilty Grown beacuse it has a very similar build up. Boy meets mystrious girl, has feelings for said girl, girl is more or less "emontionless" toward boy, boy gets caught up in a "rebellion", boy is the ony one who is "compatiable with girl. Boy is weak, cowardly and well you know.
In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.
Both anime include:
I especially recommend Guilty Crown to those who were intrigued by the thought-provoking parts of Gargantia, but all four reasons above could draw a fan of one show into the other.
While both series look into similar themes, such as human modification and fighting for the right reasons, they are quite different in terms of setting, and content.
Guilty Crown being more for an "Anti-Government" or "Fight for Freedom" scenario, where Gargantia is more about the human race in a very different post-apocalyptic setting exploring peace and understanding.The content is very different, but if you liked one, you should at least check out the other.
