In the distant future, Earth's oceans have dried up, leaving a vast sandy desert in their place. On this inhospitable planet lives Sam, a boy whose older brother went missing years ago while chasing the sand whale, a behemoth that lurks beneath the sand. Now, Sam has teamed up with the local gang of sand pirates, and has dedicated his life to hunting the whale down himself. But when the boy accidentally rescues a mysterious girl from a fleet of military ships, little did he know that she'd be connected to his long lost brother...
The scientist who flooded the world of the future and created a mutant species in the images of animals is looking to finish what he started, and the crew of Blue Submarine No. 6 must stop him at all costs. But first, they must try to recruit the best sub pilot that ever lived: Tetsu Hayami.
These are two post-apocalyptic, CGI-heavy sci-fi series about submarines (well, the one in Ozma is technically a sub..terrestrial? It dives under sand instead of water. Whatever). They also both involve people messing around with genetics and desolate landscapes. I wasn't particularly impressed with either, but if you liked one, you may like the other.
In the future, mysterious monoliths known as the Rodo fell from outer space, turning the world into a parched wasteland without rain or oceans. In this new world where humans struggle to survive, control is held by the Rodoists – worshippers of the Rodo. Ran is an orphaned and honest boy who has sworn revenge against the scarred man who took his mother from him; and in order to facilitate his revenge, Ran wishes to join the Anti-Rodoist group known as the Hazzard. In the process, however, Ran meets and falls in love with the silver-haired Aira, who has a destiny that is far more than he can comprehend. Now, Ran travels to the Holy Green to pursue his love and revenge, but can he choose between them?
If your in a desert as a energetic young man, you have a tendancy to join either pirates to catch a huge sand creature(Ozma), or a resistance group that to find the man responsible for the death of a family member(Green Legend Ran).
All those plans are chucked out the door when an odd girl enters your life with mysteries that change your whole outlook.
Both are short series set in desert planets. green Legend Ran is more enviromental.But, If you enjoyed one, you might enjoy the other.
Ozma is retro in that it emulates a late70's early 80's vibe. Ran is retro in a 90's way, well, because it is from the 90's.
One thousand years after the Giant Warriors caused an apocalyptic event known as the seven days of fire, humans are living in constant fear of the Toxic Jungle. This ever-spreading forest is filled with poisonous plants and gigantic monstrous insects; even the very air is deadly. Nausicaa is the kind and wise princess of a small, peaceful country known as the Valley of the Wind, which has so far avoided the spread of the forest. One night a large airship containing one of the Giant Warriors crashes into the valley. The following day soldiers from the powerful nation of Tolmekia invade the Valley of the Wind to reclaim and revive the warrior. As the only one who truly believes that there is a way for humans to live alongside the insects, Nausicaa must find a way to stop the war that now threatens her people and protect the Toxic Jungle before the Tolmekians burn it to the ground.
Both are set in post-apocalyptic worlds affected by severe ecological changes which have transformed the earth - so there is a strong enviromental theme to both.
They both feature an industrialised civilisation trying to obtain a particular person/thing which may have repurcussions for humanity's (and the earths) future.
The main protagonists for both are initially independent bystanders who are swept up in these events.
Do you enjoy Naval combat? Do you like cat and mouse games that captians of ships pull in manuvers that involve depth charges, hard to port, or running silent? Then you might enjoy these two.If you liked Silent Service for the ship combat you might enjoy Ozma (Ozuma). Now don't let the sandy desert landscape of Ozma fool you; ships here navigate through the sands.
However, if you saw Ozma and want more ship battles try out Silent Service. Both series are short
In a world where humans are enslaved by beast men, there is one person who wishes to destroy it all: Morute, the leader of the World Destruction Committee. She sets out on a journey with an ancient artifact known as the "Destruct Code," a device rumored to have the power to destroy the world and turn everything back into sand. Along the way she finds two companions: the kind-hearted human Kyrie, and aspiring hero and beast man Toppi. Together the trio travels the world, always staying out of reach of the World Salvation Committee. Will they discover the secrets of the Destruct Code, and more importantly, succeed at destroying the world?
these anime have different plots but share some elements in their stories. most obviously being the use of transportantion through sand, sand whales, and the sand environment itself. also, the concept of changing the world is presented in their respective ways.
