The year is Future Century 60; much of mankind now lives in colonies surrounding the earth. After being ravaged by countless wars, every four years the dominance over the colonies is decided in a martial arts tournament called the Gundam Fight. This year marks the 13th tournament, and Gundam Fighters representing their colonies have begun to gather. Their purpose is to fight, and fight, until only one remains to claim the title "Gundam of Gundams." But Domon Kasshu, Neo Japan’s representative, has another secret mission; and should he fail, all of mankind may pay the price. Gundam Fight! Ready! Go!
Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
Both series focus on over-the-top fight sequences and recklessly passionate male protagonists to draw in viewers early in the series and keep a hold of them throughout. What begin as straigtforward quests to achieve a goal, be it reach the surface or find a lost brother quickly expand into something far greater and wider in scope than one could have expected from the beginning.
Without a doubt, G Gundam and Gurren Lagann are both epic mecha anime. These two series show how the hot-blooded protagonists (Domon and Simon) must draw upon themselves to save the day.
On the planet Zi, Zoids are no longer used for military combat; instead, they are now being used for sporting events known as Zoid battles. The Zoid Battle Commission oversees these battles, enforces the rules, and declares the winners. In the midst of fierce competitions, one team aspires to rise to the top: the Blitz Team! With the help of Bit Cloud and his Liger Zero, the Blitz Team will compete against not only regular foes, but also the talented Harry Champ and the criminal organization known as the Backdraft Group!
They are both about mechanical fighting machines being used in matches against one another and they both center around a young man with a particularly special or powerful one.
these 2 animes bring a sort of "chosen one" feel to the protagonist's respective mechas. even their most offensive attack are similar. some antagonists are presented in tournament format with very bitter rivalries.
In a time filled with wars, environmental concerns and issues, there lives a gaggle of beautiful boys that are the personification of the world's countries. Japan, England, France, Finland, Germany and the rest of the boys attend the World Conference and tackle issues like global warming with a heavy dose of fun. Through multiple world wars the gang will traverse deserts, build mecha U-boats and solve the world's problems together!
Do you like the worlds countries projected in funny and interesting ways? Look no further than these 2 titles. G Gundam tries to take its self a little seriously and has mecha in it where Hetalia is pure parody and features chibi characters sometimes but both will make you laugh at how countries are represented. Check em out!
When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...
If you love anime that is over the top and uses it to it's fullest advantage then look no further than G Gundam and Highschool of the Dead! Both of these animes take everything they do the extreme and ridiculous and use it to keep you well entertained throughout the whole series without ever letting you down!
Welcome to the IG-1 Grand Prix, where teams of three fight it out in giant robots for the chance to be declared the greatest IG team ever. Up-and-coming Team Suzuku hopes to achieve this goal, so when a freak accident occurs, forcing rival Team Velshtein to withdraw, the group finally gets its chance to shine. But with the fierce Team Sledge Mamma as their first opponent, will these strapped-for-funds rookies have what it takes to play with the big boys, or is it all just a pipe dream?
Tournament competition with mecha.
Both of these have it. G Gundam is more about fighting for teritory or rule over all territories, and is 1 mecha vs 1 mecha for much of it, where IGPX is more of a trio of mecha in a team fighting, but you will get the same feel.
Unlike it's sorta sequel: IGPX is not high speed racing. So I see it more in kin to G Gundam. Anyhow, you might like one if you like the other.
