Simoun

Simoun

In the world of Daikuuriku, all children are born female; but once they become a young adult, they may choose which sex they will become. In this world which is at war with itself, the women of Simalacrum find themselves charged with the task of piloting the ancient machines known as Simoun in hopes of turning the tide of war. Though originally simple ceremonial machines, the most gifted of pilots can turn the glowing "ri maajon" of their rituals onto their enemies and obliterate them from the skies using these Simoun. However, it takes a special bond between two highly gifted girls to successfully pilot a Simoun. With the toll of blood and pain that these previously innocent girls are taking, how many will be able to carry on, even knowing that they are the only real thing standing between freedom and subjugation of their land?

Looking for a good and nice shoujo-ai/fantasy/mecha anime? Well you dont have to search that hard, Kannazuki no Miko and Simoun are very much alike in terms of genres but much different in terms of plot and characters.Even though the yuri and fantasy aspect from both of this anime are very much alike.So my guess is that if you seen and liked one of this two then you should try the other one as well

In proper yuri, action is rare enough. To find actiony science fiction, one generally has to look. Though not further than to either one of these.

More than that, these two both contain religious aspects – the female main characters are all priestesses. Simoun especially doesn't hold back on that aspect, including a religious debate that is nowhere to be seen in Kannazuki no Miko.

In any case, if you like one there is reason to watch the other.

Blue Drop and Kannazuki no Miko on one hand are very much alike mainly because of its main genres (shoujo-ai, mecha aspects which are pretty predominant) but very different in terms of story, plot.Still if you like one of them then you will definitely enjoy the other one as well.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

Both are yuri shows with science fiction elements, as well as a lot of relationship drama.

Both Kannaduki no Miko and Magic Knight Rayearth have schoolgirls, mechas, and lots of flashy effects. They also expend a lot of intensity when it comes to dramatic sequences.

Both Venus Versus Virus and Kannazuki no Miko focus on a pair of girls as they bond, and conflict, with one another, whilst having to deal with the trademark "group of villains that threaten the world". Certainly not without flaws, but if you could look past said flaws to enjoy one of these two you should be able to do so with the other.

This may sound awfully strange, (KnM is a mech-yuri), but it's undeniable: there are several similarities between these two, despite sizable plot differences.

People whose feelings are forbidden, being forced to fight each other. Tragic endings, still leaving a glimmer of hope. Young love, reaching maturity.

There may be many differences… but I think you'd enjoy both.
