Eve no Jikan

Eve no Jikan

In the future, androids live side by side with humans – but not as their equals, as their slaves. Though they look identical, these androids must display a holographic ring over their heads so the difference is clear. One day, a boy named Rikuo finds abnormal activity patterns in the logs of his own android, and alongside his friend Masaki, he sets forth to find where the android has been. Much to their surprise, the duo discovers a secret café known as Eve no Jikan with a single rule: within its walls, there must be no discrimination between humans and robots. In this place, androids appear to be human and are even displaying signs of independence – a trait that should not be possible. Rikou finds his perceptions increasingly challenged as he struggles to come to terms with his own android, and the relationship between man and machines...

Both take place in a society where robot are used for many things, but are extreamly disliked and often mistreated. Even though the robots are obviously indivisuals and have personalitys, most of society doesn't see it that way.

I know what you are thinking... you think I recommended this because both were done by Tezuka, right? Wrong! While the artwork admittedly is the same, the sci fi feel (with the concept of robots being close to human) is VERY VERY similar, and I just know you'd like one if you liked the other.

Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade

Jin Roh is like a similar but darker version of Metropolis. They're both soaked in that sad atmosphere which also makes them so good.

Kaiba

Kaiba

Welcome to a world in which memories can be transferred from body to body; old painful memories can be removed and replaced with new ones, and the poor sell their bodies to the rich to survive. Waking up one day, Kaiba finds himself in a strange place with no memories of his past and a mysterious hole in his chest; the only clue as to his identity is a locket with a picture of a girl hanging from his neck. Armed with this token, Kaiba must now travel across the galaxy to discover who he is and what the girl in the locket means to him; however, his journey will bring him into contact with many people whose lives have been tragically affected by the manipulation of memories. All too soon it becomes clear that something is very wrong with this world…

Both of these are modern anime productions (featuring high quality animation) which use a deliberately anachronistic style that recalls the 1960s and 70s. Both are also sci-fi adventures with love stories involving super-powerful beings ignorant of their own power.

I'm not sure how odd this recommendation may be, but I do think these shows have similar aspects. Both have boy/girl duos that you can't help but like. The way they both watch out for each other as they try to navigate a growingly more complex situation in an already complicated setting. If you liked one of these shows take a chance on the other.
