D'Eon is a French nobleman bent on serving his Divine Majesty Louis the XIV to the best of his abilities, following in the footsteps of his beloved sister Lia de Beaumont. However, his straight-forward role with the secret police is interrupted by the sudden death of his sister while on a diplomatic mission in foreign lands. In his desire to find the truth of her murder, he comes before the King and becomes closely entwined in the mysterious organization known as Le Secret du Roi. He quickly finds himself embroiled in a realm of spiritual energy where death is a gate to greater powers and the Psalm of the King brings destruction in its wake. D'Eon must ask himself what is the price of truth and who will pay it, as the French Revolution looms inevitably nearer.
In the distant future, mankind has colonized the galaxy on a number of platforms known as islands, governed by a ruling class known as the Aristocrat Alliance. However, internal struggles for power lead to a bloody civil war, which eventually leads to both the creation of a much stricter order that calls itself the Holy Empire, and the exiling of the old royal family. Despite overwhelming losses and heavy numerical disadvantages, a rebellion continues even after the war comes to a close; the future continues to look bleak. Yet, when all hope seems lost, the last remnants of the royal family return with a mysterious "glass fleet," joining the rebels and turning the tides of battle once more.
Somehow, the main plot is around siblings, politics, cross-dressing and so much talk about idealistics ways to freedom the people. In fact, the main characters are really alike themselves.
The HUGHE difference is about the time of the settings, chevalier is on pre-revolutionary France and glass fleet is in a futuristic space empire.
If you enjoyed Glass Fleet (Glass no Kantai), for sure Chevalier will be gorgeous for you. And the otherway too!
Although Le Chevalier D'Eon and Glass Fleet have very different settings they actually have alot in common. The both share a theme of questioning who has a right to rule and how much power/freedom people should have. Even though Glass Fleet has a sci-fi setting the politcal system is very similar to that of the 18th century Europe portrayed in Le Chevalier D'Eon. Both shows also feature some exciting sword fights.
It was a time of political instability. While most of Europe was involved with power struggles, the island country of Kuchen followed its own independent path; and with the leadership of an intelligent king and his advisors, the people worked to restore their kingdom. These advisors, with strong minds and good backgrounds, were graduates of a prestigious boarding school known as the Rozenstolz Academy. Follow the lives of the five students with the potential to become the king's next advisors (known as the Strahl candidates), as they strive to achieve their dreams.
Meine Liebe and Le Chevalier D'eon both possess the feeling of old times. The plots about conspiracies are awesome, the sword fights are cool, and the honor of it all is wonderful in both titles.
Both Meine Leibe and Le Chevalier D'Eon have a similar mood and overall theme, with a lot about patriotism and such. On top of this, the character design isn't dissimilar from what I recall.
Yukari is a typical high school student on the fast track to attending a university, but her boring life leaves much to be desired; that is, until a motley crew of fashion design students ask her to model their new clothing line: Paradise Kiss! Now, Yukari must choose if she will reject the life her mother has laid out for her, and start making choices on her own for the first time. While taking her first steps into adulthood, Yukari also begins to realize that with freedom comes responsibility; a life in the fashion industry isn't an easy one, especially for someone unsure of her own intentions…
Chevalier and PK are painfully fashionable and stunning to watch; the costume designs are to die for and the stories of the anime are set in modern society. They are good for teens who are in that stage of life where they want to watch scenarios of people making life-changing decisions. These anime will leave an impression on teens due to their drama and mother-daughter situations that many can relate to. As far as career choices, it's all about being who you are.
Paradise Kiss and Le Chevalier D’Eon are both centered around the drama of the time with life changing choices and stunning fashion statements.
In the feudal kingdom of Yogo, a dark secret is threatening its proud imperial family, and the Emperor intends to destroy it before it leaks out. Unfortunately this dark secret resides within his son, the young and innocent Second Prince Chagum. Enter Balsa, a wandering warrior who has sworn to save eight lives in penance for those she has taken during her violent career. Upon accepting her role as protector to Chagum, her eighth and final job, the two begin a perilous journey that tests not only their physical endurance and mental resolve, but also the tentative relationship they build along the way. Will Balsa fulfill her penance and protect Chagum as he seeks to understand the nature of his secret? Or will the Emperor's relentless assassins and other powerful enemies get them first?
In both Le Chevalier D'Eon and Seirei no Moribito I found a sense of realism (despite the magic and supernatural occurences within) and 'down-to-earth'-ness that is absent in most other anime.
They both also have certain (albeit minimal) political struggles and a certain ambience of historial fiction rather than simple fantasy.
While Le Chevalier D'Eon is the only one of the two based on actual history, both feel like historical dramas with a twist of the supernatural. They both involve prophecies and a mission to protect something important. As well as being similarly animated, both anime involve a strong willed female lead with fighting skills.
In the time of the Vietnam War, an American military base in Japan is plagued with a rash of killings whose assailant is unknown. Enter Saya, a mysterious young woman who happens to be the last of the vampire race, and has been charged by her government agency employer to investigate the sinister killings. With demons and creatures abounding, Saya must infiltrate a school to put a stop to the bloodshed -- unless the monsters get to her first...
Although the stories and era are a splitting the two apart, the action and monsters are similar. If you like the dark side of the event, sword fighting, and have woman fighter, you will appreciate both animations.
