Agito was born into a world that is quite different than our own. Many years ago a brilliant researcher attempted to save humanity from its excessively damaged environment by altering the DNA of plants. However, these mentally-awakened plants recognized the inherent threat of humans, and attacked them; the end result was a stalemate between the forest and the few remaining human centers. Agito's home city is green with life because the forest controls it. There is an uneasy peace which is facilitated by a small number of humans that allowed the forest to alter them to be in concert with itself. Being that his father is one of those, Agito's view of the forest is not one of fear but rather one that respects the human dependency. Agito will be challenged to prove this relationship when a random event gives the humans, who still see the forest as an enemy, a new perceived advantage in their war.
Juna didn't think much about daily life beyond the archery club, high school, and boys. But when an accident sent her spiraling towards the arms of death, fate intervened by giving her a second chance at life, under one condition: humanity is recklessly polluting and destroying the world, and Juna, with newfound powers of the Earth, must dedicate her life to saving it. Now, an unthinkable evil she can see with her powers is threatening Earth's very existence, and only she has the power to stop it...
There is little similarity between the two titles apart from the obvious theme of environmental protection and preservation. Now, the two shows are hardly equals. Gin-Iro no Kami no Agito is a good example of how to take the aforementioned theme and create something novel and refreshing, whereas Earth Girl Arjuna is the bad example, the show that takes the theme, builds a minimalistic frame to serve as its medium and then attempts to indoctrinate the audience with appeals to morality and nature. Imagine the two titles like Carl Sagan (Gin-iro no Kami no Agito) and a PETA member (Earth Girl Arjuna).
You might ask 'So why should I watch Arjuna, then?' My answer is to compare. To compare the dogmatism of Arjuna that does science, progress and efficacy no justice to the more or less fair treatment these things receive from Agito. Of course, you may not agree with Agito either, but at the very least Agito is generous and pragmatic enough to condone fundamental changes to human society and life. Watching one of the two would contribute greatly to the analysis and understanding of the other.
