Noein

Noein

When Haruka, Yuu and their friends decided to go ghost hunting, they had no idea the "ghosts" they'd find would turn their lives upside down. Black-clad and wielding quantum powers, these knights from the future are after an artifact of immense power that they hope will save their dimension from destruction: the Dragon Torque; and Haruka seems to be the key. As factions within the knights violently disagree on how to proceed, Haruka and the gang are caught up in a fight with the Shangri La, in an existential battle where fates of entire universes are decided.

At first this may look like a big stretch, but in my opinion these series have a lot in common. They both alternate between really dramatic moments and relaxed scene of everyday life, touching various themes such as family relations and friendship. They heavily deal with scientific topics (the space exploration in Stellvia and the multiverse theory in Noein). They both star a young frail girl who slowly comes to accept her role and her duties. There is something more, but I can't explain too much the details...

Noein later develops a much more complex plot with a somewhat darker tone and give a bit more screen time to side characters, yet both series manage to always keep you interested and deliver the right emotions at the right times.

Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars

Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars

In the year 2070, a giant object appears over the skies of the small town Tenmo, scrambling the electrical grid and confirming the existence of extra terrestrial life. To young Hajime Morata, this news is exciting and new - but to the townspeople, school council members and even the new exchange student Muryou Subaru, nothing going on in the skies is out of the ordinary. For it seems that Earth houses both intergalactic ambassadors and planet defenders alike - at least one of whom can use the power of the giant Shingu to battle incoming invaders - and Hajime is somehow connected. In addition to helping plan school festivals and living his day to day life, Hajime slowly begins to discover the secret behind his town and himself.

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.

Someday's Dreamers

Someday's Dreamers

In a modern world, magic has become a service industry. From transforming a house, to arranging an article in the newspaper, no job is too big or too small for a mage, who are thought of highly in the public eye. Kikuchi Yume, daughter of a famous mage, has finally reached the age of apprenticeship, and must move to Tokyo to find a mentor. Under the tutelage of the esteemed mage (and nightclub owner) Oyamada Masami, she will learn what it means to be able to bring magic to others' lives.

Stellvia and Someday's Dreamers are both great series whose main focus is on character development. Anyone who has seen (and liked) either of these series would definetly like the other...

Starship Operators

Starship Operators

When the oppressive Kingdom suddenly conquers the planet Kibi, a group of space cadets are stranded aboard the spaceship Amaterasu. With no money or power, the crew is funded by the Space Channel TV station… for a price. For though they are given the money to buy the Amaterasu and battle the Kingdom, Shinon and the rest of the cadets must also become reality TV stars, allowing the network to dictate how they look, how they fight, and how they react when faced with the horrors of death. For the cadets aboard the Amaterasu, the battle has just begun...

Stellvia is a lot more light hearted than Starship Operators, but both are interesting sci fi stories with a lot in common. Besides the plot similarities, this is just a recommendation pair that came to mind easily. Try it on for size.

Twin Spica

Twin Spica

When Asumi was just a baby, a space shuttle accident changed her life, and the lives of the townspeople of Yuigahama, forever. As a young woman, the spirited Asumi has only one desire: to someday travel to the stars in a rocket, with her father and ghostly friend Lion-san along for the ride. With heartache, happiness, and plenty of determination, Asumi and dozens of talented teenagers now face the greatest challenge of their lives: the test to enter a prestigious space academy, so that they may one day reach out and touch the stars...

Where Stellvia of the Universe focuses on an academy in space, Twin Spica focuses on a space academy on earth. Where the characters of Stellvia of the Universe already have their space legs, Twin Spica is about getting those space legs. There bought about someone who is following a dream that has something to do with space. Look at it like this, Twin Spica is about learning how to get into the water, Stellvia of the Universe is about learning how to swim. Twin Spica feels more adult, then Stellvia of the Universe.
