In a dystopic future, the Mir space station fell from space for an unknown reason -- bringing with it a death sentence for every man on Earth. Women have adapted to the loss and for the most part, are living their lives in peace, but bio terrorism is on the rise and the women of Japan need protectors. Hitomi Landsknecht is the leader of a group of such protectors, but she and her comrades will soon discover the new technology known as "ICE". Mysterious and unknown, it is somehow related to males being born again – an occurrence which may signal the rise of humanity once again. However, the technology may also create a monster and destroy what is left of womankind. Can the remaining females change their destiny or will it be too late?
In a dark future, the world is in ruin and everything is slowly crumbling away into dust. Humanity is almost extinct, while robots desperately seek out new parts to replace their rusting bodies. Their only hope for survival is to devour the one known as Casshern… or so they believe. Meanwhile, Casshern himself has lost all memory of his past. Why are these robots attacking him? Did he really kill the one known as Luna; the Sun that was called Moon? And why is he, alone, unaffected and undamaged by the ruin?
Overall, I found Casshern sins thouching on some simple, typical and yet deep philosophical stuff, just like project ICE. If you enjoy this kind of anime, you should find either one worth watching.
In the distant reaches of the galaxy, the all-female Solnoids and alien Paranoids, two advanced civilizations, have been at war for centuries. In the midst of a battle, a SOS is sent for the Solenoid fleet to protect a newly-terraformed planet from its enemies; but during the escape, one ship was left behind, crippled and wounded. With only a handful of survivors left, the Star Leaf must now race against the clock to rendevous at Planet Chaos... that is, until something goes terribly wrong.
While the show may be dated, Gall Force shares many similar themes with ICE. It paints a story about women who seek out new worlds devoid of men. Of course, there's a twist as to why there are no men, which is slightly different from simply a diminishing population.
In a far and distant future, men and women have become mortal enemies. Each living on seperate planets, an interstellar war is being fought between the two very different peoples. Hibiki, a mere 3rd class worker, finds himself in the middle of a huge space battle, facing the nemesis of mankind: Womankind!
Kiba is a wolf, one of the last of his kind, and his dream is to find Paradise in a world torn asunder by war. Cheza, the legendary Flower Girl, can lead him to Paradise, but there are others who desire her, and help from other wolves at his side may not be enough. Driven by his noble spirit, he will not forsake his quest.
Both series explores the end of the world and the desperate situation that the population finds themselves in. While Wolf's Rain sees the goal as the finding of paradise, Project ICE is a matter of existance without males. The apocolyptic setting will most likely make you enjoy both of them, especially with the touch of a world with the mechanical means but lacking the motive for rebirth.
Surrounded by water and a world of pollution, oppression, and never-ending rain, the city of ECOBAN feeds off of the surrounding pollutants to sustain life on this seemingly last continent on earth. Shua, a man thrown out of the city, misses the blue sky and now fights to cast down light on this cloud covered island, while uncovering figures from his past.
