Battle Angel Alita

Battle Angel Alita

Among the garbage dumped down from the mysterious aerial city of Zalem, a new life is found. Restored by a brilliant cyberneticist, a young girl named Gally struggles to find her own place in the world, to learn the extent of her own deadly abilities and to discover that which makes her truly human: love.

Battle Angel Alita and Iria have rather similar character designs and a lot of attention to minute details. I really like the strong female leads and the self discovery each character undergoes in their own kinda post-apocalyptic worlds
wickedshizuku

Both of these animes are excellent time well spent. They both give off a retro feel with a some-what gritty, but beautiful artstyle. Many inspirational phrases are said in both that leave you contimplating a persons' own worth.

JAhU

Iria and Battle Angel Alita have somewhat similar story and the main characters in both look quite alike. If you liked one you should give the other a try too.

P.S. Both of those titles suffer from "cool main character syndrome" (which means the story is a bit sucky), but BAA has a better one than IZTA.

ohtetsuo

Both Iria and Battle Angel Alita are set in dusty sci-fi worlds and follow the adventures of scrappy, young femme fatale bounty hunters. Themes of family and isolation are present in both series, as well as a similar style to the artwork. While Alita is decidedly darker in tone, fans of fast-paced action and cyberpunk undertones will no doubt love both series.

Shamanic Princess

Shamanic Princess

In the Guardian World, there live magic users and Neutralizers whose goal is to protect the Throne of Yord -- the source of their power. When the Throne is stolen from its place of rest, it’s up to Tiara and her furry familiar Japolo to find it… but things aren’t always as they seem. Beneath the façade of a simple painting lies the true identity of the Throne of Yord, and beneath the pretense of a simple theft lies the real reason it was stolen… a reason that may end up costing Tiara and her friends their very lives!

Shamanic Princess takes place in a world as richly detailed as the one in Battle Angel Alita and with a similarly confused and inquisitive protagonist. Both of these have really moody soundtracks and are fun to watch.
kilrothi

Both Iria and Shamanic Princess take place in worlds far removed from our own, with their own set of rules, weapons, magic, and monsters. Though it takes a bit to get into the world, both are richly populated with interesting characters and nuances. Both series are all 6-episode OVAs, long enough to have a story, but short enough to tell it quickly and with style. Plus, who doesn't love fighting girls?

Bubblegum Crisis

Bubblegum Crisis

The year is 2032. Tokyo has been destroyed by a great earthquake and a new city, MegaTokyo, has risen from the ashes. Humans now live side-by-side with androids known as Boomers who perform many of the menial and laborious tasks that humans despise, but these artificial servants come with a price: they have a tendency to go haywire and attack those they were built to serve. The A.D. Police force was created to try and stop this menace, but its weapons can do little more than annoy the Boomers. Hope lies with the Knight Sabers, four young women with high-tech, armored suits and enough firepower to stop an army - but will it be enough to stop MegaTokyo's greatest threat?

Let's say there was one sole Knight Saber in Bubblegum Crisis and her name was, Iria. Both are fun sci-fi's with females that kick ass basically, they don't offer incredibly mindblowing plots, drama, aren't very deep or complex, or whatnot, but the quality is there along with great production values for their time with excellent action and sci-fi settings/designs. All around classic sci-fi.

King of Bandit Jing

King of Bandit Jing

Join the king of thieves Jing and his plumed partner Kir as they seek out the greatest treasures in the world - and steal them. From desert bandit fortresses to the innermost sanctums of kings and queens, if there's a magnificent treasure to be had, you can be sure Jing has his eyes (and later his hands) on it.

Both of these animes are good to watch simultaniously. Unique art styles, music, and comedic moments. It makes me wish I had seen them sooner.

The main characters in Iria and Spriggan are bad-asses (in a good way) and are very skilled fighters. Both series are jam packed full of action and mayhem with sizable amounts of blood and gore. I highly recommend the 2 series if you're into mostly action with a sprinkle of drama at the side.
