The Year is Cosmic Era 73, two years after the end of the war between Earth and the PLANTs. Peace had finally been achieved thanks to efforts put forth by both sides, but it was not meant to last. When rebel Earth Forces soldiers infiltrate the PLANTs and steal ZAFT's new prototype Gundams, it's up to Shinn Asuka and the crew of the Minerva warship to hunt them down and retrieve their mobile suits. With the war now back in full swing, will Shinn and the others find a way to restore peace?
In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.
Both Gundam SEED Destiny and Evangelion feature gigantic robots fighting, a very complex (yet completely different) plot, and have an emphasis on character development and character relationships. So if you liked those aspects of either show the other is a nice choice.
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.

If you're looking for a good mecha anime with dramatic subplot and unbelivably good soundtrack then here you are. Beside the excellent music there are of course other similarities, like in EVERY other mecha series there's an overreacting mega sesnsitive main character with his tragic past and the always-popular-save-the-world-through-fighting theme. Nothing shocking but it's worth watching for the soundtrack alone.
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?
Lelouch and Shinn Asuka is similar so as his intentions to Durandal. Kira and Suzaku are similar as well. Lelouch and Shinn are fighting to end wars in a similar matter since they're both anti heroes and their biggest obstacles are none other than Suzaku and Kira. Code Geass is more about making choices and sacrifices that will bring an outcome in different ways leading one to another whereas Gundam Seed Destiny is all about making choices that will lead to peace.
