GITS Innocence and Pale Cocoon have a very similar buildup. Both are pretty much story only, have interesting topics that are more likely to appeal to an older audience and a gloomy atmosphere. On top of all of that even the subjects are the same as they both have technology and take a look at the human nature embedded in their stories.

Memories

One movie, and one OVA. Two short and thought provoking shows. They go perfectly hand in hand.

Both dabble in the world of science-fiction, exploring possible futures and the human reaction to it. The curiosity of the characters is what endeared Memories and Pale Cocoon to me.

Pale Cocoon is a stunning piece of work, with a seamless blend of CG and animation. Memories looks a little dated by todays standards, but is impressive non-the-less.

If you like something interesting, slow paced and something that will linger in your mind for a long time, I highly recommend both of these shows.

Languidly paced and visually striking forays into the cyberpunk genre; each with a slightly less than obvious plot. Both also feature a key and beautiful moment involving images transposed over a song.

Dr Kanzaki was building an Evoluder whose data had reached Earth, and Tomoru finds that he can link to it and access its memories. Its name is Orgun, and seems to have a connection to Tomoru, and Tomoru's past...

If you liked Pale Cocoon's vision of a bleak future with signs for hope, then you may enjoy Detonator Orgun, Detonator Orgun has similar themes and plot twists, but is a longer anime with mecha action,

Both are about forgotten history. Societies living under ground. Gurren Lagann also has fighting Mechs. The main simularities end after the first few episodes though.
