Synopsis:

Evergreen would be a peaceful and prosperous place – if it wasn’t under siege by bandits. Most of the inhabitants have already been killed or driven off, but among the ones remaining is Wendy – a young girl who is intent on finding her kidnapped brother. As the outlaws bring their full arsenal to bear, including one of the dreaded Armor war-machines, the fate of Evergreen looks sealed. However, a slim hope appears in the form of the wanderer Van, who possesses extraordinary martial skills and even an Armor of his own. But Van has motives and goals of his own, which don’t necessarily involve saving besieged towns...

Brigadoon Marin to Melan

The year is 1969, and strange things are happening on Earth: a strange formation known as Brigadoon has appeared in the sky, and mysterious alien machines have begun to attack a seemingly ordinary orphan girl named Marin! Luckily for her, Marin finds an artifact which summons the alien Melan Blue to protect her – but there is more going on between Earth and Brigadoon than meets the eye. However there is more going on behind the scenes between Earth and Brigadoon. Along with a cast of quirky characters, Marin must get to the bottom of what’s going on, lest both Earth AND Brigadoon be destroyed forever!

Brigadoon and Gun X Sword are sci-fi series which feature sword-fighting robots. Although Brigadoon is not a typical mech series, the fighting style of the robots in Brigadoon is very similar to the style Van uses when piloting his mech in Gun X Sword. In terms of characters, both shows are focused on an odd-couple pairing of a middle-school girl and the strong fighter who protects her. Finally, the shows have a similar plot structure: especially in the first half of each series, there is a new villain each episode, but each episode also contributes to the larger overall plot. (Brigadoon makes much heavier use of cliffhangers.)

While on the hunt for an underage hacker, Faye is the sole witness to identifying a man who causes a tanker explosion that leaves people up to three miles away in comas. The bounty that ensues is the largest the galaxy has EVER seen, 300,000,000 wulongs. It's up to Spike and the gang to solve the mystery of this strange disease, and to stop the assailant at large, for failure would result in all life on Mars being eliminated on Halloween night.

Both main characters are the cold silent type, solving problems with fighting prowess rather than words.

Both have an innate lazy streak and both will love no other than the one they each lost.

These two heroes are nonchelant don't care about much on the outside, yet hide a desire to do what's right. They also have young nuisance girls tagging along they would rather just go away. Although the girls begin to grow on them. These guys are your typical "not much is a challenge" kick ass fighters, that find not everything is simple and not everyone is as they seem. As both animes unroll, the viewer finds out more about the past of the main character which ads vital twists to the plot. Dante and Van seem to be very lazy, yet whenever needed, thrive on the action that comes their way. Hope you enjoy both of these shows.

Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...

Just the mere look at the animation remind me of each other. Many of the same voice actors are used in both as well. Both also seem to have a moment where it shows you how deep a character's madness has become in each episode.
