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.
along with having a very similar plot line they are also have been done in a similar artistic style i love the way they at times look like traditional paintings

In terms of the storyline they both are similar. Both revolve around large parts of the world being inhabited by plants and military/army trying to stop the spread.Both have a very similar visual designs and both plot-lines also have an element of nature having taken over.
Both Shangri-la and Origin are set in a future where mutant/genetically modified plants have taken over the world. If that sort of story appeals to you, or you enjoyed one or the other, I have a feeling you'd also enjoy the other.

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.

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.
