Synopsis:

After being threatened by extinction at the hands of alien invaders called the Zentradi, humanity undertook the task of guaranteeing itself a future by launching fleets of colony ships into space. On Macross Frontier, one such fleet, high school student Saotome Alto's life is changed forever: the fleet is suddenly attacked by unidentified creatures while he is performing aerial stunts for a concert by the wildly popular idol Sheryl. Alto quickly finds himself in the cockpit of a new-model fighter struggling to protect Ranka Lee, a young girl he met only hours earlier, from the invaders' swath of destruction. Noting his performance during this incident, the S.M.S. Skull Squadron private military company invites Alto to join their organization, where he continues protecting his friends and Macross Frontier.

Eureka Seven

Eureka Seven

Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!

Transforming mecha piloted by humans against a race unknown? If you're watching one then give the other a try.

Both mecha anime put a small group of elites against a force which normal figters can't stand up against.

Finally, the two have a similar, but not identical, art style, despite being made by different studios.

animegal33

These are two very similar series. They both are focused around mecha. The two have a very similar feel. The few diffences that I can find in them are that Eureka Seven has romance, Eureka Seven is on Earth while Macross Frontier is in space, and with Eureka Seven, the characters are facing other humans. If you liked one, you should definately try the other.

DragoonAdept

Both Eureka Seven and Macross Frontier deal with romance. Both deal with multiple relationships on a more subtle level, for example: Talho and Holland, Moondoggie and Gidget in E7 and Klan and Michel and the ship Captain and a crew member in Macross F. Both are Mecha but Macross F is more heavy in the mecha than E7.

Then the main characters are of course afraid to admit their feelings in both series' until later on. Though the roles are switched in Macross F where Ranka and Sheryl realise their love for Alto before he does and in E7 Renton longs for Eureka from the very beginning.

Both series' deal with an alien species that are unable to understand the actions of humanity and attempt to communicate in the only way they know how, often resulting in harm on both sides.

Szwagier

The connection is hard to explain without spoiling much... For starters obviously both have some unique mechas, and both focus not only on fights but also on romance. But the most important similarity is the mystery behind Scub Coral in Euereka 7 and behind Vajra in Macross Frontier. I can't really say more than they are really similar ideas, cuz I would spoil all the fun you'd have from watching them. Either way defienietly if you like one of them you'll like both.

Yes, Yoko Kanno does the music for both but there's even more to compare these 2 animetogether. Delicious action, mecha, and silly love situations! Both have a slick look to them as well. I'm sure you'll enjoy one if you liked the other.

Dzedajus

If you enjoyed Aqualion then you will enjoy Macross Frontier and vice versa. It has alot in common like mecha fights, romance, green loses, etc.

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.

No-brainer since both animes feature a large city that needs to be protected from an alien monster threat, a male hero with female friends and the balance of comedy and mech fights.

Both female leads are very similar, very open and friendly girls who have alot of fans.

SamIchi

They both give the same feel (aliens in space that are attacking humans who left earth and are now living in space.) even the characters are a bit similar. 

If you liked one, you'll like the other.

Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.

Sora04

Both animes, has accion, good music, and fights, its a little soon to do comparations but when i first see Guilty Crown I think Instantly in Macross Frontier, plus the design caracters in both animes are good.

Shleck

Both anime has some philosofic idea about human motivation. Both of them have some people that want to modify human race.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Mobile Suit Gundam 00

In the 24th century, the planet's fossil fuels have been completely consumed, forcing humanity to use solar power as the primary source of energy. A huge solar energy system orbiting the planet was eventually built, anchored to the Earth and providing it with power through three orbital space elevators. As a result of the expense of such a large-scale project, most the world consolidated into three factions: the Union, the Human Reform League, and the AEU. Despite their common reliance on the fragile orbital elevators for energy, however, humanity still continues to constantly fight wars and build up arms. A paramilitary organization called Celestial Being, equipped with incredibly powerful mobile suits called Gundams, fight in order to force humanity to unite and eradicate armed conflict.

Both are the newest installments of long recognized futuristic mecha series. They have brilliant animation with political conflicts and subplots of close-knit mecha commanders.

Theta

Seekers of giant robot porn look no further.  These are both splendidly animated series in well established franchises.  They are also fairly good jumping on points if your are unfamiliar with said franchise.  While Macross is focused somewhat on pop music they are both sure to please fans of the genre.
