Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

If you like weird plans and happenstances and also odd cellphone conversations, both anime are for you. In both stories the characters act very mysteriously. The main character often doesn't know what's really going on, so the viewer is always in anticipation of the next plot twist.

In both animes we follow a similar group of characters, whose actions get the attention of a mysterious and shadowy organization. Although the plot is different (Eden of the East is not about time travelling), both animes have eccentric main characters, good humor, a subtle and nicely paced romance, hackers, neets and the same feeling of suspense and mystery. Also, both animes are obsessed with cellphones.

Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".

Steins;Gate and Ergo Proxy are alike in that they are both psychological and deal with inner conflict as well as memories. Ergo Proxy is a little more serious and very stylized while Steins;Gate is more comedic but still equally mind blowing.

Both left me with the same feeling after finishing them. i loved both. there are the obvious scifi connections but if you really liked steins gate or ergo proxy you will like the other. Both are very well written but the characters in both were what made these two tie for my favorite anime series.

Both anime have a similar plot element, which is travelling between world lines. Where the behavior of the characters change according to which world line the character went in.

Rintaro (Steins;Gate) and Ukyou (Amnesia) have the same goal, which is to avoid the death of a certain person by travelling these world lines, which are Mayuri and the Heroine, respectively. Except however, Rintaro's motives are shown directly from his point of view, while Ukyou's motive is shown from the Heroine's point of view.

Both anime also appears to exhibit some minor "dating sim" element, where the girls (Steins;Gate) or the guys (Amnesia) show their affection towards the main character.

Leitzac Leitzac says...

Maybe it's just me, but watching Anmesia I saw an connection between Steins; Gate and Amnesia in a way. Both have animes use the many worlds interpretation version of time travel. However, Steins; Gate allows you to experiance time travel first-hand (cause) through the eyes of HOUOUNIN KYOUMA while Amnesia allows you to experiance time travel secondhand (effect) through the eyes of Heroine.

Comparing the two enables you to better see both sides of the same situation. To realize the full extent of Ukyo pain as if he was HOUOUNIN KYOUMA. To understand the possible confusion of Kurisu, Mayuri, Faris and Ruka as if they were Heroine.

Clannad

Clannad

Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...

Both have strong male leads who make friends with a group of women and help them with their trobules. Both have bittersweet endings and emotional rollercoaster's of a ride. Both are top notch anime.

Both draw a dramatic twist,leading you to suspense. Also both are funny and random at times. Shows a load of emitional strength.

Psycho-Pass

Psycho-Pass

In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they're considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl's judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.

BagasCandra BagasCandra says...

Psycho-Pass is set in 2113. The Sibyl System (シビュラシステム Shibyura Shisutemu?) is actively measuring the populace's mental states, personalities, and the probability that individuals will commit crimes, using a "cymatic scan" of the brain. The resulting assessment is called a Psycho-Pass (サイコパス Saikopasu?). When the probability of a person engaging in crimes measured by the Crime Coefficient (犯罪係数 Hanzaikeisū?) index exceeds a certain level in an individual, he or she is pursued, apprehended, and killed if necessary.

definitley, as long as you can make it past some of the violent elements in the first episode, you should love PP just as much as S;G
