Escaflowne

Escaflowne

Hitomi was just a normal high school girl, until she was taken by the mysterious Van Fanel and dropped into a world of romance, magic and giant sword-wielding armor suits! Now Van, pilot of the famed armor suit Escaflowne; and Hitomi, whose hobby of predicting the future just became a frightening reality, must work together and fight the advanced technology of Zaibach: a force who want to shape Gaea to their visions of "peace". Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.

Just as Macross Plus visually stunning, Escaflowne is magical. Both these anime tittles are great for fans of the romantic anime genre. They both share the same intriguing love triangle, which brings out conflict within the characters. Escaflowne has perhaps a wider range of character emotions, where as Macross Plus has the depth of character emotions, but still both share similar linear Hollywood narrative, and thrive on the idea of unrequited love.

both these shows have well blended romantic love triangles and action. also my two favorite anime soundtracks come from these shows, which are done by Yoko Kanno.

Gundam Wing

Gundam Wing

The year is After Colony 195, and mankind is in the midst of a seemingly endless ongoing war between the Space Colonies and the ones who created them: the people of Earth. To give the Colonies the advantage, five mobile suits called Gundams were created. Equipped with enhanced technology and extremely talented young pilots, these are the ultimate machines of war. While Relena Peacecraft pleads for peace, Heero Yui leads the Gundams into the battle with Earth to attain it. As their personalities and visions clash, their goal is the same: freedom for all and peace at last.

For Lovers of Macross, i recommend Gundam Wing. This series is also in the genre of Mecha and has excellent action sequences and wonderful storytelling.

If you're looking for amazing mecha designs, good music, and interesting characters then you've found them in Macross Plus and Gundam Wing. Focusing on a far-off future of space colonization, both series feature terrific combat and excellent animation.

Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory

Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory

Beginning four years after the one year war, 0083 starts with the arrival of two new Gundam units to be used for gravity testing. Things take a turn for the worse when members of Zeon steal Unit 2 and the nuclear warhead it that it has been armed with. Young test pilot-in-training Kou Uraki, piloting Gundam Unit 1, must now capture the stolen Gundam before it can be used to fulfill Zeon's mysterious "Operation Stardust".

Both anime are about test pilots that end up getting into more than they bargained for. There's some romance involved and haunting pasts. The main differance between the 2 is that Macross Plus focuses a lot on music where the other more on taking out the enemy Both are sure to please and you do not have to have seen the other series in their franchises in order to watch them.

Ryvius

One shouldn't really go in expecting much with the characters and plots in these two, especially when compared to other installments in both the Gundam/Macross series. But where these two OVA's excel at, they really shine - the production values, the nostalgic and incredible music, amazingly top notch animation and art for their time, and the insane action make them both worth seeing for the technical aspects alone. Both are sci-fi, mecha, and all that sort of thing, chances are if you like some of Macross or Gundam, you'll like both in many ways too.

Patlabor: The Mobile Police TV

Patlabor: The Mobile Police TV

"Labors" are large construction robots that are now being used to commit crimes. To meet the challenge, Special Vehicle (SV) units are established by the Tokyo PD. However, the Second SV unit is a total joke. Determined to change this, Izumi and Shinohara become pilots of the new Ingram 98 police labors, and are determined to change that reputation, with the help of the SV-2 gang of misfits.

smash
A very awesome mecha anime... my favorite mecha type anime. besides the point of the use of the huge Labors... its really down to earth and isnt all too complicated (most stuff in this series doesnt defy the laws of physics :P.. unlike other mecha anime )
nextolast
While macross and patlabour are both deemed mechs, this is not really what i think makes them similar. Instead it is the military/institutional layout that overlays the bulk of the maincharacter's lives. The overall feel of the animation is similar in terms of the mecha design, although macross tends to be dark and stylized/techy where patlabour is lighter and more organic in feel. I always like having the different tone this way, as watching too many dark or bubbly animes in a row must be bad for you (well probably watching anything isnt that good for you, but oh well)

RahXephon

RahXephon

Ayato Kamina may seem like an average boy in a devastated world, but after being captured by TERRA, a military organization set on saving the world from the Mu, an alien race set on "tuning" the world, he realizes he is an instrument in deciding the fate of humanity and piloting RahXephon. Not only is Ayato the only person who can control the mecha, but he also has a terrible fate of his own. Holding onto memories of his old life and grasping to keep his own humanity, he must struggle in this new world and realize his true potential with RahXephon.

This series got alot in common with Macross Plus. For the first it totally the same genre and it both deals with some mystic singer/song that makes a huge weapon. Hrd to explain but check it out.
splattermark
While this movie lacks the spiritual overtones of RahXephon, it does have one important thing: MECHA FIGHTS OUT THE WAZOO. If you liked the midair battles of RahX, multiply the pace by about 3 and you have Macross Plus. Also, check out Macross Zero for more of the same in glorious 3D.
