QChronoD
While not necessarily similar in content, they are both animated in a way that makes you think of listening to a story your grandparents told you about when you were younger. Visually well executed, and both extremely well written. Gives a great glimpse into the past.

Gunslinger Girl

Gunslinger Girl

Henrietta is a young girl who works for a "welfare group" that does the government's dirty work. Cybernetically-enhanced and specially-trained, she is one of a group of elite hit-girls, remorseless killers with no memories of their past. Jose, her partner, has taken care of her since she was brought into the organization following the murder of her family, and struggles between his affection for her, and his opposing duty to his employer. But, time is running out.. for with each bullet they fire, Henrietta and the other girls lose a little more of their humanity.

Ran

Jin Roh and Gunslinger Girl are very similar in the way they deal with the use of little girls in battle. Both focus on the kids' views of their lives and their relationships with one special adult close to them. If you liked one, the other will suit you too.

Haibane Renmei

Haibane Renmei

A young woman quietly falls to the earth, escorted by a solitary crow. This sort of dream, as many other before have dreamed, comes just before being reborn as a Haibane, a charcoal-winged angel. On the outskirts of the walled-in city lies Old Home, a haven for Haibane to study, live, and learn, while waiting for their chance to ascend to the heavens and escape the confines of their new world. Rakka is the newest inhabitant of Old Home who wants nothing more than to remember her past and discover the secrets of her kind. Together with Reki, Kuu and plenty of other new friends, Rakka will laugh, explore, and search for the meaning of their existence in the process.

Although Haibane has a more light hearted feel, both share a slow paced story telling and has strong dramatic elements executed beautifully.

Both also used symbolisms (which is more implicit in Haibane) that gave more depth to the presentation.

Higan

Higan
  • OVA (1 ep x 8 min)
  • 2002

In the dark forest, a battle is raging between viciously piloted armored tanks, and manned robotic machines whose pilots won't go down without a fight. For a handful of men, surviving the night, the gunfire and the explosions is the only thing that matters. The enemies are tough and the price of failure is death. With no backup and nowhere to run, will anyone make it out alive?

Both Higan and Jin-Roh have a dark tone and a dead serious approach to military combat. Higan is essentially an action short, while Jin-Roh is a brooding, grimy look at the ethics of combat, but if you appreciated the tone and style of one you might like the other.

King of Thorn

King of Thorn
  • Movie (1 ep x 109 min)
  • 2009

Medusa is a mysterious illness which causes the body to petrify shortly after infection, found throughout the world and steadily increasing the death toll. In order to combat the disease, 160 lottery winners were chosen to be frozen until a cure could be found, one of whom is Kasumi - a twin whose sibling was not one of the chosen. Along with a group of others Kasumi awakens from her cryogenic chamber, but not to the same world she left it: prehistoric monsters roam the now-abandoned castle and eat the survivors, while endless giant thorns rise all around them. Against all odds, Kasumi and the others must now try to survive the horror of their situation and discover the truth behind what's happening, all the while waiting for the Medusa to finally claim their lives...

While Jin-Roh and King of Thorn have different plots, the plots of both movies are interesting and have plenty of twists and turns.  Also, both movies have references to fairytales ('Little Red Riding Hood' in Jin-Roh and 'Sleeping Beauty' in King of Thorn).
