On a distant planet, a war wages between humanity and the extraterrestrial Citizens of the Stars. Humans, in a desperate attempt to drive off their attackers, force enslaved beings known as Majins to fight for their cause. Strong-willed Yuuri is a member of the Superior Soldier Team - a group that is on the front lines of the war. She has been begrudgingly charged with the care of a Majin known as Number Seven - but as the fighting continues, Yuuri and Number Seven grow very close. Humanity is on the verge of extinction at the hands of the Citizens of the Stars; can Yuuri and Number Seven turn the tide of the war so they can be together forever?
Eighteen years ago, the sun's radiation caused new types of children to be born with special abilities. Amuri Kakyoin is one of these "Adapters" with a very unhelpful trait: her body physically repulses anything that approaches her. Lonely and solemn, Amuri has drifted through life in solitude; but one day, when the spaceship she is traveling on is destroyed, Amuri's luck finally changes; bouncing back and forth between space debris, she finally bounces into Uterus, a medical recovery capsule, where she is joined by a quiet girl and her robotic bunny. Alongside her new Adapter companions, Amuri will help defend the enemy in the skies with her new ability-amplifying suit.
I thought Hanoka and at least the first episode of Amuri were utter garbage. Admittedly, Hanoka is a hell of a lot worse, but both have bad animation (Hanoka's is 100% flash, and Amuri's is bad enough to seem like flash), a weird story, some sort of weapon girl, and generally suck.
In the not-so-distant future, mankind is at war with itself. The lives of Chise and Shuu are torn apart when Chise is chosen to become the ultimate weapon to fight for Japan against their enemies. Death, sadness, and the hardships of love accompany Sai Kano in its grim look at war and its consequences.
Saikano and Hanoka are remarkably similar; each involves a young girl who is being exploited due to her nature as a living weapon. Hanoka is considerably less graphically appealing and overall flat out sucks, while Sai Kano is gorgeous, but also sucks. Regardless, if you liked one, you might enjoy the other.
On the battlefields of World War II, a new threat is realized as a mysterious ship from the future is warped back in time to the 1940s. The ships' two living passengers are the only ones who know its whereabouts. Now two elite agents must stop the Nazis from capturing the survivors, finding the ship, and launching their diabolical plan to take over the world, codename: URDA.
URDA and Hanoka don't exactly share a very similar plot or the surroundings, URDA placing the events around WWII and Hanoka to sometime in future. What they have in common is their unique animation techniques. URDA is a 3D CG-producted ova and Hanoka is a short series made by using a flash-program. So if you're looking for something that entirely differs from the usual style, here you got two of those.
