Synopsis:

In the near future, Mars is covered with oceans. Within one of its cities, Gram River is just another kid trying to survive in the slums, until he finds himself right in the middle of a pirate attack! After nearly drowning, he finds himself aboard the pirates' ship, and is faced with a decision: be killed, or stay and fight alongside them. And thus, Gram joins the pirate crew in their quest to find the legendary treasure of Mars, but they aren't alone in their search. Now, while being hunted by the military, bounty hunters, rivals and even a few old friends, they search the seas of Mars for clues...

Black Lagoon

Black Lagoon

Rokuro Okajima is a small-time salaryman who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?

The intensities (and mindf*ck levels) of The Mars Daybreak and Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion differ greatly, but they do actually contain similar themes. A corrupt government that doesn't care about the poor, a group struggling to change things, a relationship torn apart by war... If you watched Mars Daybreak, you really should do yourself a favor and move up to Code Geass. If you finished Code Geass but wanted something a bit more straight-forward, try Mars Daybreak.

Both E7 and Mars Daybreak are about youths in a new territory; the only difference is one is in a pirate ship, and the other in a mercenary ship.

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all.

While both series center around a submarine and its crew, FMP has the millitary fighting terrorists, while in Mars Daybreak, the "terrorists" are fighting the millitary! If warfare is your thing, be sure to check both of them out.
