If you liked the Psycho-Pass anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
A young man awakens in an abandoned warehouse with no memory of his past. As he leaves the room and ventures further into the warehouse he is attacked by a girl in a mask; she tells him that in order to live he must come at her with all his might. After a fight for his life, he manages to overpower the girl, learning that he is to be trained as a Phantom - an assassin for the Inferno organization. He is also given a new name: Zwei. For three months, Zwei is trained by the girl in the arts of assassination until he has just one final test: to kill a living human being.
"I have only abandoned my body, I still live here" - are the words emailed to friends of Chisa, several days after her death by suicide. As Lain delves deeper into the world of the "Wired" (also known as the internet), the line between it and reality becomes more and more unclear. Close the world, open the nExt.
the heavy usage of virtualisation for home decoration, clothing or cosplaying online or inside the real world has made me think of the Navi System used in Lain.
Both show rely extensively of new technology is used for socialization and do things the way it would be done years from now.
the music is also similar in some ways regarding electronic music, not BoA level though really good when bpm is loud.
Centuries ago, humanity carelessly ravaged the Earth’s environment, forcing them to leave and form a colony elsewhere. To prevent the same mistakes from happening again, they allow a supercomputer to run their lives. Children are genetically engineered and at the age of fourteen take ‘adulthood exams’, a process whereby the supercomputer ensures they are suitable for membership in this perfect society. Those who pass have their memories erased and are guided into the next stage of their life; those who fail are immediately destroyed. Jomy is a boy about to take his adulthood exams, but things go terribly wrong when a man wreathed in light interrupts the process. He is a Mu -- an aberration, a new generation of human with extraordinary powers usually detected and eliminated by the supercomputer. This man tells Jomy he too is a Mu and introduces him to the Mu society. They are a rebel group in hiding from the oppressive human regime, who live in the hope that they will find a life of peace on Earth some day. Can Jomy leave behind all that he has known, come to terms with his awakening powers, and help the Mu return to their beloved Terra?
1. Both anime show a world that is controlled by a supercomputer. Dystopian themes are very prominent in both anime.
2. There are two "kinds" of people in both anime. In Toward the Terra, humans and Mu (humans with psychic powers) fear and hate each other, wishing to eradicate the other kind. In Psycho-Pass, humans with high crime coefficient (people who may commit a severe crime soon) are eliminated by the other humans.
3. The main protagonists in both anime (Jomy in Toward the Terra, Akane in Psycho-Pass) have to fight against what they believe in originally (that the supercomputers are to help humans), and help to save mankind ultimately.
In post-war Japan, the nation remains unsettled and crime is as big a problem as ever. Despite his sharp mind and keen deductions, "Defeated Detective" Shinjurou Yuuki frequently loses out to his rival, Rinroku Kaishou, whose information network has previously aided many police investigations. However, in spite of his poor reputation, Shinjurou continues to work on every case he's recruited to with his mysterious assistant Inga. With Inga's power to transform into a being capable of forcing any person to truthfully answer one question put to them, the pair uses everything at their disposal to get to the bottom of each crime and reveal the true culprit – even if the reality of who solved the case never reaches the public...
Crimes. What makes some people commit them, and are we really that different? That's the theme both of these series explore. Set in more technologically advanced settings than our own (Psycho-pass more than UN-GO), both series explore the dark side of humanity, and anyone who enjoyed one will likely enjoy the other.
