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.

Dullshimmer

While on the surface these two anime may seem very different, under the surface are elements that connect the two together. In many ways both are about the horrors of war, and look at war through the eyes of inexperienced youths (Hitomi and Van in Escaflowne and Kira and co. in SEED). There is also a focus on relationships in both, although I would say that Escaflowne places a greater emphasis on that, and that SEED is focused more on action. To further complicate relationships, both feature a main character struggling with a loved one being on the enemy side. Not to mention that both anime involve mecha battles, but the style indicates the background of the anime (fantasy in Escaflowne, space in SEED). While fans of one may not like the other given the setting and slightly reversed emphasis, giving it a try may produce good results.

DaMidWestNinja

Gundam SEED is diffrent from Escaflowne in many ways but simmilar in so many more. They both are mecha but do not just focus on combat and action. They both go deep into charaterization and have charaters that you get attached to. Gundam SEED is focused on science fiction instead Escaflowne which seemed to have much more fantasy. Over all if you enjoyed Escaflowne definitly check out Gundam SEED and vice versa.

norco

Escaflowne and Gundam Seed are similar because they both contain plenty of mecha action without sacrificing character development. Gundam Seed  does have some romance but not as much as Escaflowne. I think that if you enjoy action but still want a good story then you should give this one a try.

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.

If you were into Seed for the giant toaster ovens of doom, Wing is one of the better Gundam series and a must watch show.
sublime
Huge mecha and intergalactic fights. Romantic angst coupled with huge space battles. Some excellent characterisation in Seed as well as an amazing soundtrack.
Lothar
Although Seed and Wing are set in different universes, the similarities are numerous. Both feature entire universes in war, huge fleets and loads of meccha action. They show how friends are thrown against each others in the horror of wars. The characters are well made and you feel for them throughout the shows. If you like on of them, you'll enjoy the other one as well.

Two best friends sharing many memories together meet again on opposing sides of the battlefield, neither right or wrong and fighting for their idealistic beliefs. Did I mention both have awesome music and feature mecha battles?

stingreis

Both include a situation where war is taking over the land (though Gundam SEED is war of space and Break Blade is warring countries) the ideals of the lands are similar in that Heliopolis and the primary country in Break blade both wish to be neutral and maintain peace, however events lead to robotic fighting where there is one special (or multiple special in case of Gundams) are relyied on to protect or initiate the peace in what seems to be an unending war. In both of these series there is drama of friends fighting friends and even situations where the enemy becomes a friend. They both attempt to show the reasons each person has for fighting and how sad it is that the majority of the people fighting are doing it based on beliefs that are not true.

Eureka Seven

Eureka Seven

Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!

Animedreamer240

Other than the common theme of mecha and military combat, a huge similarity between Gundam SEED and Eureka Seven are the characters. Both series allow drama to arise based on the character's personal issues, quirks, and personalities that just can't mix. Characters go through phases of hate, jealousy, and confusion until the goal before them is finally clear.

crater86

Both of the series are based on a scale of war and within that war are those that fight for a reason they cannot understand. They search for a reason to fight. They find that reason to fight in the protection of those they care for. A similar idea behind both series just a different way of getting it across.

Fafner

Fafner

"Are you there?" This is the question that the aliens always demand before they attack. The quiet island of Tatsumiyajima is secretly the last line of defense against mysterious invaders. In a quiet and rustic villiage, children were raised without any knowlege that they were born to pilot the Fafnirs, giant robotic war machines of terrible powers that are the only thing that can defend all they hold dear.These children's struggles will be the only thing that can hold off an enemy that attacks both our bodies and our sense of identity...

While the theme itself isn't similar there are a lot of things which are. Character interraction and character development aswell as questions regarding life and it's existence are abundant in these shows. These things are shown extremely well. Definetly something for someone who wants more than just senseless action.
GodsDragon

Gundam Seed and Fafner are both based loosely on a plot of a bunch of high school kids getting caught up in a war, piloting giant robots, and trying to overcome many obstacles. If you liked one you should also greatly enjoy the other.
