Synopsis:

Amidst a beautiful sunset, Shu is violently whisked away to a grim future devoid of water, and empty of hope; a place where children are forced to become soldiers, and kill countless others in the name of King Hamdo. Shu's companion is a mysterious girl named La La Ru, who may hold the key to survival. Now, he must concentrate on the only things that matter: escaping Hellywood, and finding a way home.

Texhnolyze

In an experimental city of despair and carnage, ORGAN will do anything necessary to gain power and wealth. Unfortunately for one underground boxer who was mutilated, a rogue doctor has given him what ORGAN specializes in and he despises: Texhnolyze body parts. Will these cybernetic appendages help exact his revenge upon the one who made him this way?

Now, if you compare Texhnolyze to Now and Then, Here and There, the former is so much darker and more depressing than the likes of NTHT. Just like Now and Then, Here and There, Texhnolyze also looks at the dark and depressing side of humanity, they do not pander to the lowest common denominator and they do not talk down to the viewers watching. Instead, they treat us like human beings, so that we could understand that life is not all sunshine and rainbows.

Both The Hakkenden (Legend of the Dog Warriors) and NTHT have the common element of being a psychological study of people during difficult times and struggles against foes both seen and unseen. Trust, love, faith and hope are explored by the main characters of both series as are some of the darker sides of humanity. The Hakkenden is based on legend told in classical form and NTHT is told in another place and time, allowing the stories to be told with great emotional impact and visual imagery while the viewer can indulge in their identification w/ the characters that both elicit while watching at a safe distance.

Tokyo Underground

Tokyo Underground

Beneath Tokyo lies a city whose inhabitants have inherited a natural ability to control the elements. After a civil uprising, two girls surface from the sub-terra in a bid to escape from this secret world. Together, Chelsea and Ruri  stumble upon Asagi Rumina, a man who becomes determined to protect them from those who would pursue the maiden of life. After a close encounter with death, Rumina learns that he must develop a skill of his own to keep his newfound friends safe, especially as it seems to be his responsibility to stop the impending doom rising to take over the planet’s surface. Will his power of wind be enough to take on The Company, or will he be forced to kneel before those brandishing electricity, ice and shadow?

Now and Then, Here and There and Tokyo Underground have similar stories. Both contain male protagonists that end up in another strange world, protecting a girl and trying to end a war. If you enjoyed one, you should check out the other.

Trigun

Trigun

“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.

Both anime's are very sad and dark and talk about human morals and what is right or wrong. You will find Trigun more complex than Now and Then, Here and There but still both are masterpieces. If you liked the dark, sad, tragic and action of Trigun you will also like Now and Then, Here and There! Both animes also take place in wasteland-esque worlds that have seen destruction and war throughout.

Not only do NTHT and Windaria both deal with the grim effects of war, but they are also extremely depressing and sobering because of it. I highly enjoyed both, and think you would too (though Windaria does have a lot more fantasy elements).
