Synopsis:

Ayato Kamina may seem like an average boy in a devastated world, but after being captured by TERRA, a military organization set on saving the world from the Mu, an alien race set on "tuning" the world, he realizes he is an instrument in deciding the fate of humanity and piloting RahXephon. Not only is Ayato the only person who can control the mecha, but he also has a terrible fate of his own. Holding onto memories of his old life and grasping to keep his own humanity, he must struggle in this new world and realize his true potential with RahXephon.

The iDOLM@STER: Xenoglossia

The iDOLM@STER: Xenoglossia

Much to her delight and surprise, Haruka was selected to become an "idol." Little did she know what she was getting herself into; rather than singing and dancing, she actually is employed by a secret organization that protects the Earth from "drops" (falling fragments of the destroyed moon) using giant robots called "iDOL," piloted by girls called "iDOL Masters." As she meets new friends and tries to adjust to this new life, a hostile organization that also utilizes iDOL emerges and attacks her in an effort to capture her iDOL, Imber. Can Haruka accept her new responsibilities, get along with her new peers and Imber, and do her part to protect the world?

Both feature the classic premise of:

1. Fight the enemy to prevent the end of the world

2. Angsty teenagers 'Synchronizing' with Mechas

3. A love story thrown in for good measure, although RaXephon's love story actually involves a person-person relationship as opposed to the person-mecha thing in iDOLM@STER.

A somewhat less serious anime compared to Rahxephon, however if you're just looking for themes of love, action, sci-fi and some comedy this is it for you.

Voices of a Distant Star

Voices of a Distant Star

Nagamine is a young high school student who lives a fairly typical teenage life: hanging out with friends, attending class, and falling in love with a wonderful boy. But when she enlists in the galactic army, who is desperate for candidates to fight an alien war, she finds herself drifting farther away from her first love, Noboru. In the depths of space, where a simple email takes eight years to be delivered, will their love truly flourish, or simply fade away?

Can be seen as the Ill-fated lovers similar to the relationships in Rahxephon in a similar war torn world...

I found ayato to be very similar to robin, in terms of temperment, anyways... I also got a fairly similar overall feel from RahXephon: the animation is fairly similar in the cell shading and big eyes and head shap, but more importantly, the scenery is very reminiscent -> the buildings all seem somewhat old fashioned, but with high tech stuff contrasting (the ourbos guns and high tech stuff in the hq in WHR and the dolems etc in rahX) Even though RahX is mecha, the organic feeling of the background really reminds me of WHR
