It isn't unusual for a person to feel that the world around them is strange and has unexpected secrets lying just beyond their sight. However, for most people this is just an occasional sensation that greets them upon awakening or chases them into sleep. For the mushi researcher Ginko, it isn't a feeling at all; it is a knowledge which guides his travels and motivates his life. Found in the cracks between what is conceivable and what is not, are the varied life forms collectively known as mushi. They surround us and affect us, but their intensely different nature makes them unrecognizable to most. Ginko brings these life forms into perspective for the lives of those most affected and most in need of an explanation.
People who like Origin will embrace Mushishi simply because its main focus is on nature with a supernatural twist. With gorgeous animation and character designs, you will be captivated by the beautiful plant life and the spirits that live among them.
Both "Mushishi" and "Origin: Spirits of the Past" stress on the subject of Nature; and contain beautifully drawn scenery - not to mention that "Origin" has some kick-@$$ animation, and for a series, so does Mushishi... The big difference is that, in Origin, humans are almost at war with nature - whilst in Mushishi, it's more of a peaceful relationship, even though in certain episodes one endangers the other.
Altogether, if you liked one, I'd suggest you gave the other one a try as well - it's well worth it!
Both of these series have incredible animation, a storyline that bridges the gap between man and nature, and a main character so effected by nature, his hair turns white. While Mushishi has a much slower pace, both of these anime have very similar themes
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!
I watched Origin the other day, adn the whole time I was thinking "This remind me of Eureka 7". Both show how humans destory the world and the wrold turing on them. The lead females are also similar, both being from another time or place. They also show what love makes people do, whether it be good or bad.
Not only do "Origin: Spirits of the Past" and "Eureka Seven" have similar plots, but both animes take place in worlds that are beyond imagination. Between the character designs, and the storylines, I'm sure you will enjoy both animes.
Both Eureka Seven and Origin have a similar plot, the world is at odds with nature. Both have a young protagonist who has lived in a relatively peaceful place all his life, until a strange girl drops into his world and turns it on its head. Both have themes of growing up and taking responsibilty as well as preserving the bond between man and nature.
Medusa is a mysterious illness which causes the body to petrify shortly after infection, found throughout the world and steadily increasing the death toll. In order to combat the disease, 160 lottery winners were chosen to be frozen until a cure could be found, one of whom is Kasumi - a twin whose sibling was not one of the chosen. Along with a group of others Kasumi awakens from her cryogenic chamber, but not to the same world she left it: prehistoric monsters roam the now-abandoned castle and eat the survivors, while endless giant thorns rise all around them. Against all odds, Kasumi and the others must now try to survive the horror of their situation and discover the truth behind what's happening, all the while waiting for the Medusa to finally claim their lives...
Humanity is about to be destroyed by living organisms that came from space (a deadly virus in KOT, mentally awakened plants in OSP), so a big corporation decides to put in cryogenic sleep some humans claiming that they do so in order to save humanity.The movie also pictures people with supernatural powers awakened by the 'alien' organisms.
I recommend Origin: spirts of the past because it is an anime worry 5 and 5 stars.
faced with a horrible past, these anime center around a trauma that is dark, with an even darker secret once discovered. a threat to humanity, but what greater threat than mankind itself. a must watch if you're into not just the gore, but also the scfi horror that comes about when a person's own mind can become their worst enemy.
In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.
Both Origin and Blue Gender take place in a world which has been overtaken by nature. Humans have survived and are split into two categories: those who decide to live with the current situation and make the best out of it, and those who are still attached to technology and want to take their planet back. In both anime, a character suddenly awakens after having slept through all of the changes, and must decide whether to fight back for the planet or adopt a completely new lifestyle. This character will have a critical role influencing the future of the planet. Blue Gender has more mature content, but if you liked one, you're probably going to like the other too.
Both anime have main characters who find themselves unfrozen in the future to find the world as they know it has ended.
Chihiro and her family are on their way to their new home, when they discover an abandoned amusement park. After Chihiro's family mysteriously turn into pigs, she is thrown into a surreal world of magic and fantasy. Join her as she struggles to survive in the bathhouse of the gods, ruled by an evil witch who has stolen not only her name, but her way back to the real world.
Origin: Spirits Of the Past and Spirited Away are both great stories of adventures. They both have the same kind of plot where a person helps another person find out who they really are inside. Both movies are great and if you've seen one, you should see the other.
Both origin and Spirited away have the same kind of plot. Very fantasy and adventerous. Though origin is more futuristic. They just really reminded me of eachother.
