As the sole member of a club dedicated to helping others, do-gooder Madoka Kyouno didn't hesitate in helping save a girl from drowning one day. But little did she know that she actually saved an alien named Lan, and that soon, Madoka herself would be in the pilot of a giant mecha...
The above is a preliminary synopsis that will be updated once more episodes of the anime have been released.
In both the protagonists are female and end up becoming involved in outer space warfare. If you like one try out the other, they have a similar feel to them.
Both of these shows are about a school girl who is suddenly put into a situation in which she must pilot a machine. Both take place in a futuristic setting, and both involve interplanetary activity. If you like the idea of students being dragged out of school in order to fulfill a sci-fi mission, watch either one of these.
Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.
Rinne no Lagrange is much less entertaining than Full Metal Panic!, but both share a similar sense of duty as well as similar genres. If you liked Rinne no Lagrange, you should like Full Metal Panic!, and if you're picking at straws for anything similar to Full Metal Panic!, then you could go with Rinne no Lagrange.
Cute girls fighting to protect their friends and family from an seemingly alien threat. While Symphogear uses extremely nice musical courses and has less than reliable animation quality it is very much the same when playing around with the Slice of Life sections of the show. Rinne no Lagrange itself is more slice of life orientated and the alien threat are actually humans, in fact part of the main cast are these aliens. Still it's human girls fighting injustice in skin tight outfits.
I've only watched one episode of Rinne no Lagrange (there's only 3 so far), but I noticed it was very simmilar to Star driver. Humans who controls huge robots with their own body and fight with them. The enemy is from space, and the robots can also fight with swords and stuff that they summon. Just like in star driver, but there the fights is in space!I would also comared it to Ride back. A girl who is destened to drive a certain motorcycle robot that she can control with her body and thoughts. The girl in Rinne no Lagrange is also bound to the robot somehow and can control it with her body and voice. That's what I have come to understand.
