Synopsis:

In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.

Blast of Tempest

Blast of Tempest

Hakaze, princess of the Kusaribe mage clan, has been betrayed and marooned on an island by her own people. They seek to revive the Tree of Exodus, an incomprehensibly powerful entity of alien origin, to save the world from the tyranny of its antithesis: the Tree of Genesis that powers their magic. Hakaze, however, believes their efforts put humanity in jeopardy; and with her power limited, she can only reach out to the world to beg for aid. Her call reaches Mahiro Fuwa, a young man grieving the mysterious death of his sister, Aika. He and his friend Yoshino agree to help - on the condition that Hakaze track down Aika's killer with her magic. The deal is made, and the battle that will determine civilization's fate is begun: but who will play the part of its villain, and who its savior?

Mockinqbird

1) Both animes are set in apocalyptic Japan

2) Both apocalypses are caused by a source that makes people´s body turn into crystal/metal

3) Main characters are bound by friendship

4) Some higher power (state, the powerful) is trying to suppress/kill them

both animes are very similar to each other,  its just that Guilty crown has mechas X Zetsuen has magic

Great visuals, fast paced and a fairly original plot. If you like the whole, "lets band together to save the world," feel then Blue Exorcist and Guilty Crown are right for you. Blue Exorcist very much like Guilty Crown are weapon based adventures, that push the protagonist to the inner limits. Well the time watching.

Both shows feature a young boy, who ends up having a girl bound to him that he uses as a weapon. There's not a whole lot in common other than that, but some of relationship development is similar.

Largely different shows, Interlude and Guilty Crown both share a peculiar sci-fi element of a mysterious "possibly evil, possibly good" enemy, and a girl whose body lays in eternal slumber to stop the world from collapsing.

Kakumeiki Valvrave

Kakumeiki Valvrave

In the future, Earth is split into three factions: Dorssia, an empire bent on world domination; ARSUS, a military alliance; and Jiro, a collection of neutral states with colonies across the galaxy. On one such colony, Haruto Tokishima lives a carefree life at Sakimori High, where his greatest concern is mustering the courage to confess to his childhood friend, Shouko. His idyllic life is broken, however, when a team of Dorssian super-soldiers, led by the enigmatic L-elf, assaults the colony to retrieve the 'Valvrave', a mobile suit secretly being constructed there. In the resulting chaos, Haruto watches as Shouko disappears within a laser’s blast; enraged, he climbs into the now accessible Valvrave, and defeats the Dorssian army after forsaking his humanity to the machine. Haruto pledges to protect the colony, but can he come to terms with what he's given up to gain such power?

Nocturnalgloria

The same people were behind Guilty Crown and Kakumeiki Valvrave and it shows. Both are very colorful, fast paced sci-fi anime about a normal high school student who suddenly gains a super power that comes at a price. The school plays a big part in rallying against military powers that threaten to destroy it. More than anything the way the plot progresses is very alike, there are crazy twists every other episode and the storyline is often all over the place.
