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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Macross Frontier and Chrome Shelled Regios involve controlled human environments where threatened communities are staked against harsh conditions and monster attacks. In both we have entire populations on the move. These anime follow soldiers while adding romance vibes to action packed plots. Without being groundbreaking in any way they are both sci-fi works in the same line.

Seekers of giant robot porn look no further. These are both gripping war epics with a less serious side as well. While Code Geass cuts the tension with high school comedy, Macross Frontier heavily features pop music.
