Izuru, Toshikazu, Tamaki, Kei and Ataru are a group of such soldiers who, due to their consistently terrible grades and bumbling maneuvers, are referred to as the “Failure 5”.

Both of thse shows are about kids joining the military and learning to pilot giant mecha suits in space. The animation/character designs are very similar, and the overall feel of the shows are the same. If you enjoyed one, you'd no doubt enjoy the other as well.

Far, far away in a distant time, there is a tribe of people called the Golden Tribe who have the ability to create stars and foretell the future. They gave out a warning to those who have yet to mature: 'Move.'. Three tribes answered their call: the Silver Tribe, the Bronze Tribe, and the Heroic Tribe. Soon after, the Golden Tribe encountered a crashed ship in which only a baby human known as Age survived; they named the child's race the Iron Tribe and assigned one of the few living members of the Heroic Tribe to protect him and his race. Now, in a distant part of the galaxy, humanity is threatened with extinction at the hands of the other tribes. With only a prophecy to go on, they set out to the deepest depths of space to find their savior named Age -- humanity's last hope.
Action, large-scale space battles, a tiny bit of comedic relief, drama, mecha and character relations are the best things of both series.
