In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.
Both these animes are really similar. Both are rated 3 stars in my book and have similar stories. They deal with women with complications with life and battles against aliens trying to destroy earth. The main difference is that there is more fight in Neon Genesis, but more romance in Shingu.
The final test of Hibiki, Dita, Meia, Jura and their friends on the Nirvana draws near as the battle with their enemy's mothership approaches. In order to triumph, Hibiki will have to discover his true self, and the pilots will have to build a comradery strong enough to deploy their ultimate weapon...
Both are pretty similar, but I think that Vandread is a little better. While they are both about fighting aliens and relationships about the main characters, there are some big differences. Vandread deals all in space and the relationship problems are on all whole new scale.
It is the year 2356 AD, 189 years after a shockwave from a distant supernova decimated the Earth. Since that fateful day, humanity has begun training for a final mission to protect the planet from the inevitable oncoming 2nd shockwave - a mission whose failure means the annihilation of mankind. For Katase and her friends, their training at the foundation Stellvia is just the beginning of an adventure that could lead to saving the world, or seeing its end...
This recommendation is very similar to my Vandread one. Well in both Stellvia and Shingu the both deal with sci-fi battles, school life and romance. They both deal with people around the similar age and the other is highly recommended if you liked the other one.
Several years ago, Jin Kamishina's family was killed in what appeared to have been a space shuttle accident. A few years later he is suddenly attacked by a strange monster, but is saved by a strange girl named Toa who possesses superhuman strength and can transform into a dragon. Jin finds out that the accident was not due to an error by his father, the pilot, but rather as a result of a collision with an object from outer space – the asteroid Thanatos, the source of destructive dragons appearing on Earth. As they make new friends and enemies, Jin and Toa now find themselves becoming increasingly entangled in the mysteries of the ISDA – a shadowy organization working to protect humanity – and the dragons themselves...
Well these are and aren't similar at the same time. Meaning that even though both are people fighting aliens trying to destroy earth, complicated relationships, the main character guy being weak and the main character girl being strong the animes still have major differences. Mainly the graphics and its hard to say but Shingu is more realistic if you understand what I mean.
Yukitaka has just left Tokyo, eager to transfer to Kisaragi High where he's been recruited to play baseball. However, upon entering his new apartment, the boy is met by a man with long blonde hair who claims to be… an alien?! After initially scoffing at the notion, Yukitaka discovers that the alien – Ouji – is for real, has amnesia and, what's worse, now wants to live with him in his apartment. The fact that scientists and mysterious guys in black suits are after Ouji becomes the least of Yukitaka's problems as his new guest turns out to be more than a handful to handle!
