The year is After Colony 195, and mankind is in the midst of a seemingly endless ongoing war between the Space Colonies and the ones who created them: the people of Earth. To give the Colonies the advantage, five mobile suits called Gundams were created. Equipped with enhanced technology and extremely talented young pilots, these are the ultimate machines of war. While Relena Peacecraft pleads for peace, Heero Yui leads the Gundams into the battle with Earth to attain it. As their personalities and visions clash, their goal is the same: freedom for all and peace at last.
Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.
These are two anime series about men who take themselves way too seriously. In Gundam Wing, Heero Yui is a freedom fighter for the space colonies who takes his missions quite seriously and is willingly to complete them at any cost. During the midst of all the fighting Heero finds himself entangled with the pacifist Relena Peacecraft.
Like Heero Yui in Gundam, Sousuke Sagara is a teenage soldier assigned to protect Kaname Chidori, but he soon figures out this will not be an easy task. Between his lack of common sense and her explosive personality this series makes for a laugh out loud spectacle. Sasuke and Heero sure do have their work cut out for them! Though Gundam pushes more to the serious side of this mecha genre both series are highly recommended.
If mechas and a badass main character is your thing, then Full Metal Panic! is highly recommended. Sousuke could even be considered Heero's twin brother.
Both of these Animes deal with Mech action, and some of the best out there by the way, while also having some romance in there. Also the main character of both are so like eachother its scary.
Each of these series are based around mechs fighting for "justice." Both of these series have a main male (Hero or Soususe) that are extremely formal, seeming to be a perfect soldier, but showing that that isn't always the case. The supporting male in each are similar (Or at least Duo and Kurz) and provide some comedic back ground. Finally, at least one villain in each seems like the perfect match for the main lead's skills in a mech.
In each anime the Male protagonist is only concerened with completing his mission. There are loads of giant mecha action scenes and both have an awesome story that makes everything flow together.
Hitomi was just a normal high school girl, until she was taken by the mysterious Van Fanel and dropped into a world of romance, magic and giant sword-wielding armor suits! Now Van, pilot of the famed armor suit Escaflowne; and Hitomi, whose hobby of predicting the future just became a frightening reality, must work together and fight the advanced technology of Zaibach: a force who want to shape Gaea to their visions of "peace". Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.
Both Gundam Wing and Escaflowne are about a group of people fighting in a time of war to bring peace to their worlds. Also, both anime have mecha.
If you like mecha, you're going to love Escaflowne and Gundam Wing. They are full of action and drama, and have great fights between awesome robots.
Both are short series, but even if they weren't, the action in them won't let you get bored. Enjoy the wings in each series.
Other than the obvious of these two series being mech related. You find yourself compairing the one with the other. The main hero in both series carry the same attitude. As well there is a certain level of honor that is kept between the hero and main villian. In both series you have yourself a perfect blend of suspense, action and a touch of romance.
I would recommend one to the other because they both have mecha battles, and both stories revolved around a war. Furthermore each of these series has points where you are forced to see from other perspectives.
Also, both series have numerous Romantic scenes, and they both have plots to instigate some relationship or break some other relationship or create some conflict, etc... they are plenty of twists in each of them as well, though i will add, that these anime's were, in my opionion, geared for different audiences, I would still recommend one for someone who enjoyed the other
The universe of the future is divided between the Earth Alliance and ZAFT. After a year of war, ZAFT attacks the neutral colony Heliopolis to steal five prototype mobile suits. The mission is a success, but a young man named Kira stumbles upon the fifth Gundam, and he may be the Alliance's only hope...
In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.
Evangelion is similar to Gundam Wing in terms of giant robots. In this show, young children have to face aliens named as "Angels" who are for some reason invading Earth. In the midst of it all, the mysterious organization known as SEELE is preparing for a project that will affect all of mankind. The effects of the battles though are much more in depth than many shows and it deals with them on not only a physical basis, but also a psychological one. If you were into the mystery and psychological effects of warfare of Gundam Wing, Evangelion is the one for you!
Both shows feature a young male teenager who happens to maneuver an ultimate fighting robot to protect his home - and destroy the enemies'. They follow the formulaic mecha storyline.
However, both take time to develop the lead characters well. To the point of taking the audience into a psychological journey of each of the prime male lead (shinji and heero). and as teenagers amidst war - torn between prevailing principles of the peace and complicated politics - both show strongly angsty and anxious behaviour as they fulfill their duties.
Like mecha? Like angsty teens? Brilliant, then both of these series are for you. Both Gundam Wing and Evangelion focus on the lives of the young people who pilot large mechass in order to protect the earth. Both also focus quite heavily on their troubles as much as they do on the fighting. If you liked one, it's worth trying the other.
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Both of these series revolve around mechas, "saviors" chosen to save oppressed peoples, and a strong central character with a sense of mystery about him.
Both have charismatics characters ! A complexe story mixing personnal affair and politics. Great scenes of action. They both are not manichean, you can love characters in each faction ! And of course there are mechas !
