Both of these great anime have a pack of girls fighting over a boy one way or another. They both have great characters full of life and they both run into tough situations with hard descesions. I would strongly reccomend this anime because they both hook you into the story and leave you wanting more. The storyline is full of emoticinal twists and turns. If you liked that anime I think you will like this one.

Yes, Zegapain has mecha, science-fiction themes, combat, and an epic story about mankind's future and uphill struggle for survival. But it also has relationships affected by tragedies, sacrifices made for others, and themes of friendship and romance. If you liked the depth, love, and tragedy of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, and don't mind something similar but in a fantastical and action-packed setting, then I highly recommend Zegapain.
