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.
Both shows are post-NGE anime so many of the similarities probably come from that source. Anyway, at the beginning of both of those shows a boy meets a girl and falls in love with her. Shortly afterwards he ends up joining rebels because the girl is one of them, but being part of the rebels proves to be much more harsh than he expected. While male leads of those shows have different personalities, the girl and the leader of rebels come out as much more similar. Speaking of which character relations between the three are also similar in those two shows. All in all, due to quite a few similarities it might be worth checking out one if you've seen the other (especially if the one you've seen was Guilty Crown, because if it was the other way around you might end up being terribly disappointed).
Souma and his friends were typical high school students, and members of the student council; but things changed when a cat girl named Mao appeared in the school, looking for someone named Zero. Souma accidentally breaks Mao's mirror which causes her, Souma and his friends to be transported to her world. In this world, Souma and the other male humans from Earth can wield soulblades drawn from people's hearts. His friends landed in different parts of a war-torn world, so they have subsequently broken up into separate factions and each person is working towards winning the war. His friends have become each other's enemies, and it's up to Souma to be the one to create peace without choosing which friends should die.
Enjoy how a protagonist - who is suddenly and directly thrown into the midst of a warring environment - pulls out different weapons from people and uses them for battle? See it happen again!
Both anime have main character thrown into battle and pull out peoples souls in the form of a weapon to fight.
Sion is intelligent, highly educated and lives a privileged life within the walls of No. 6, one of six city-states that was built after the world was destroyed from war. But Sion's comfortable existence changes forever when he meets Nezumi, an escaped convict, on the eve of his twelfth birthday. Due to his assistance in keeping Nezumi safe, Sion loses his rights and is forced to live in the lower town, where he becomes a normal citizen. Four years later, Sion finds himself back in Nezumi's company and in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy that leaves a trail of bodies in its wake. What is really going on in No. 6?
They do have comparable plot lines. No. 6 is probably handling the plot with more or a realistic or human approach in comparison to the setting. Guilty Crown makes full use of Sci-Fi, but in a wonderful fashion.
Both plots feature dystopias in which society, following an apocalyptic event and threatened by an epidemic, resorts to isolating and discriminating against those who are infected. The heroes of each anime, Sion in "No. 6" and Shu in "Guilty Crown," are both entangled in attempts to overthrow the governing system and ultimately faced with morally conflicting decisions in spite of their initially timid natures.
Althought character dynamics between the two shows may differ as "No. 6" focuses on the relationship between two male protagonists while "Guilty Crown" includes a male and female lead as well as several side relationships, the two are nonetheless mutually appealing for their humane character developments and moral storyline.
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.
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!
