Thor and Rai are twins who live on an advanced space colony called ‘Juno’. Things take a nasty turn one day when they are kidnapped by the Federal Army’s Special Forces and abandoned on the hostile prison planet Chimera. A cycle on Chimera consists of 181 days of scorching heat and 181 nights of below-freezing temperatures – not to mention it is populated almost entirely by carnivorous plants. The convicts on Chimera have found only one means of survival – reverting back to the law of beasts. For the strong-willed Thor adjustment comes naturally; but for his naive and weaker brother Rai, things do not go as well. Thor must now use all his wits, strength and courage to endure life as a member of Chimeran society, rise above the rest, and take the only ticket off this planet: becoming the Beast King.
Agito was born into a world that is quite different than our own. Many years ago a brilliant researcher attempted to save humanity from its excessively damaged environment by altering the DNA of plants. However, these mentally-awakened plants recognized the inherent threat of humans, and attacked them; the end result was a stalemate between the forest and the few remaining human centers. Agito's home city is green with life because the forest controls it. There is an uneasy peace which is facilitated by a small number of humans that allowed the forest to alter them to be in concert with itself. Being that his father is one of those, Agito's view of the forest is not one of fear but rather one that respects the human dependency. Agito will be challenged to prove this relationship when a random event gives the humans, who still see the forest as an enemy, a new perceived advantage in their war.
I'm going to say you will most likely enjoy Gin'iro if you enjoyed Jyu-Oh-Sei not because they have the same feel, but rather because the atmosphere is similar without being the same. Taking two young boys with surprisingly different lives and placing them in suddenly difficult circumstances provides some grounds for comparison. Basically each boy experiences what could only be considered a rough awakening to the realities of their existence. They are then forced, despite their different circumstances, to physically fight for what they believe in. Strangely enough even though the worlds are different, both the series and the movie share a focus on the costs of human survival and the harsh environmental consequences of technological advancement.
In both Origin and Jyu Oh Sei, humans have to live in a world controlled by plants. Although the plots and circumstances are very different, the general ambiance of the planets is quite similar in both. If you liked one, you'll probably like the other anime too.
Both are futuristic anime about worlds that aren't necessarely technological.
Nature and plants play a big role in these series as well as the fight against electronics sort of say. the Headcaracters are also very similar in their way of doing things.
Both anime take place in a future sci-fi disaster world that has been overrun by giant plants.
In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.
Both series deal with the survival of people on planet earth, after it has been taken over by wild plants and animals. In both cases, although under different circumstances, the main characters try to escape from the planet and the way they organize their survival is a central part of the plot. Blue gender is a bit more mature than Jyu Oh Sei, but if you liked one, it's likely you'll like the other as well.
Both shows deal about the surviving of the fittest. In both animes the earth has been taken over by deadly plants and huge animals that is hard to kill and even harder to escape. Both main character and some of their friends try to escape from the infested earth to a new home wolrd, thought under different circumstances. Lots of characters die and only a few manage to escape. Anyway, if you like one you'll love the other as well.
In ancient medieval Japan, the people are oppressed by a brutal emperor and his four children, with no hope for the future… until the prophet Nagi proclaimed that a child born on a day would be their savior. Twins were born that day, a boy, Tatara, raised from birth to be Japan’s savior, and a girl, Sarasa. This is her story: a story of great personal loss, tragic romance, and a resilient unbreakable will.
Both series focus heavily on "Surviving in hard times". Both anime empasize on the importance of bringing down sectionalism and creating a better world for people to live in.
Our heros have to defeat a group of kings in order to acheive they're goal. They both take place in harsh enviornments and *Spoiler for the 1st episodes* they both lose their twins.
Centuries ago, humanity carelessly ravaged the Earth’s environment, forcing them to leave and form a colony elsewhere. To prevent the same mistakes from happening again, they allow a supercomputer to run their lives. Children are genetically engineered and at the age of fourteen take ‘adulthood exams’, a process whereby the supercomputer ensures they are suitable for membership in this perfect society. Those who pass have their memories erased and are guided into the next stage of their life; those who fail are immediately destroyed. Jomy is a boy about to take his adulthood exams, but things go terribly wrong when a man wreathed in light interrupts the process. He is a Mu -- an aberration, a new generation of human with extraordinary powers usually detected and eliminated by the supercomputer. This man tells Jomy he too is a Mu and introduces him to the Mu society. They are a rebel group in hiding from the oppressive human regime, who live in the hope that they will find a life of peace on Earth some day. Can Jomy leave behind all that he has known, come to terms with his awakening powers, and help the Mu return to their beloved Terra?
Both are sci-fi anime that focus on a powerful young man finding his old life torn away from him as he is thrown into a new life where he much lead a following of people to find peace.
1. The graphics are SO similar I immediately thought of Toward the Terra while watching Jyu Oh Sei. The genre is also sci-fi, where humans are inhabiting non-Earth planets. Furthermore, almost all human beings in both anime were made artificially (i.e., test-tube babies).
2. The setting is a dystopian future where the main character (Jomy from Toward the Terra and Thor from Jyu Oh Sei), as a child, had to abandon everything he knows and fight to survive.
3. The dream of the main characters in both anime is similar: to find out the truth and to return to Earth. This applies especially for Jomy from Toward the Terra and Third from Jyu Oh Sei.
In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
Both animes have the "survivial of the fittest" theme. The main leads of both have a strong personality, and doesn't give up or back down when others look down on them. Both animes have the same "feel" (great action, a sad past behind the main character, and keeps you excited about what's coming next).
