Synopsis:

The Nation of Gallia has always remained neutral in conflicts and has only gone to war to defend itself. However, as war flares between the East Europan Imperial Alliance and the Atlantic Federation, Gallia is soon targeted for its abundance of ragnite ore, a versatile and hugely valuable material. The Civilian Militia is soon called into action, and Welkin Gunther - son of a legendary war hero - is named leader of Squad 7. Under his command are the headstrong and practical Alicia Melchiott; the sharp-tongued Brigitte Stark; the grizzled veteran, Largo Potter; and Welkin's adopted sister Isara, whose Darcsen heritage means she faces prejudice, even from members of her own squad. With the rest of Squad 7 and the mighty tank Edelweiss, they must do their best to defend Gallia.

Pumpkin Scissors

Pumpkin Scissors

Wars leech the life out of a country in so many ways. They consume lives and resources at an incredible rate, but what is worst is the way they eat away at hope. The Empire, which has survived the years of war, now finds itself with a new conflict to resolve: with the exception of the noble families that managed to hold their wealth during the struggle, its populace is made up of starving citizens and war-damaged soldiers. Section III of the army of the Empire was created to deal with this ongoing problem; however, their progress was been slow on all fronts. The citizens fear and distrust them due to their experiences with other soldiers, the nobles have no use for them, and the other branches of the military mock them for the ineffectual nature. LT. Alice L. Malvin of Section III Pumpkin Scissors won't be defeated, though, even if her newest recruit does have something unusual about him.

Valkyria chronicles and pumpkin scissors are two show with different stories but with basically the same layout. They're both set in a psuedo-early 1900's war time era with strong female protagonists, a unique supporting male and a odd assortment of characters in a troop. 

Though they bot focus on two entirely different themes (and valkyria chronicles is a bit mor immature) you'd probably like one if you liked the other.

Nakamura2828

Both Valkyria Chronicles feature a motly band of a military unit lead by a strong male/female pair.  Both offer action, comedy releif, and social commentary on the effects of war.

JAhU

Both anime are militaristicly themed and both take place in worlds based on the first half of 20 century. Valkyria Chronicles and Pumpkin Scissors are different in style. Still, if you're into militaristic anime you should check those two.

RedCrossRobbery

Valkyria Chronicles and Pumpkin Scissors are incredibly similar titles; Each title has enough innovation to make both different. Strong female characters will capture your heart as mismatched romances, and cute comedic relief melts it. If you watch one, you should definitely watch the other.

suhej

Both animes shares similiar theme - young military group lead by strange but excellent commander matures through adventures. Technology level in both animes also quite similiar and both animes are very enjoyable :)

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

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.

Valkyria Chronicles and Full Metal Panic! are two animes with different story plot but they are all set in a war time and both of them have a strong female character and a protective male character.Of course they have their own differences but they r very much alike and im sure that if you like one of them for sure you will like the second

eaper

Each of these series are comedies based around conflict, with a tsundere character that comes to find that they are much more important to the war effort than originally thought.

wolfangel87

The time of war can break people or make them out to be heroes, this is the test for the main characters in Valkyria Chronicles and Full Metal Panic.  While the male leads strive to protect their female counterparts, the females rise to the top to win out in victory.

So-Ra-No-Wo-To

Kanata Sorami, a young Private in the army, arrives in Seize to serve in the Clocktower Fortress and learn the trumpet under the tutelage of Master Sergeant Rio Kazumiya. Though peace hangs uneasily over the world, Kanata finds a relaxing routine of laundry, shopping, and trumpet practice greets her at her new post instead of brutal drilling and discipline. With help from the other members of the all-female 1121st Platoon, Kanata finds her place in the bustling city, bringing joy and humor to the war-weary residents while learning a great deal about the world.

Galadriel

both Valkyria Chronicles and Sora no Woto feature main protagonists directly involving themselves in military life and implicit in warfare. Both have a similar world war setting and both you can feel the tension of war knocking at the door in both shows. Even though Sora no Woto and Valkyria Chronicles are pretty much different in many aspects from what i mentioned above they seem quite alike so if you liked one of this shows check the other one as well.

eaper

These series both focus on a group in a time of war with a bit of comedy thrown in. Furthermore, the characters in it end up being much more important to the war effort than originally though.

wolfangel87

So-Ra-No-Wo-To and Valkyria Chronicles both deal with the main protagonists having to go through a life and death war type of situation and the implications of what the war has in store for them and the tension involved between the characters.

Toshokan Sensou

Toshokan Sensou

The government has passed the Media Betterment Act, establishing a military police force to stop the spread of "negative influences harmful to society;" and in response, libraries have organized their own military units to protect freedom of expression. After being saved by a Library Defense Force agent in a bookstore, Kasahara is inspired to enlist in the Library Defense Force. Although she proves quite athletic and capable, she must endure the harsh but meaningful training of her instructor and superior officer, Doujou. As she learns how to be a good soldier, she participates in LDF operations, helping protect literary freedom for everyone.

The first thing I thought of when watching Valkyria Chronicles was how similar it was to Library Wars in my mind.  The whole entire feeling of fighting for something you believe in while having strong female leads to set the pace and a bunch of supporting characters around her making it possible for her to complete her mission.  Each tale has a tragic side to it making the storyline all that more interesting.

Cut3PupGrL

Although Valkyria Chronicles is more of a supernatral feel to it than Library War, I feel that these two anime really fit well with each other because both of the main female character are headstrong and brave.  They both can be a little reckless but when things get rough they manage to pull off a miracle.

vazzaroth

Both series have a focus on the teamwork and bonds between squad mates in war-type situations. Not to mention the "Love can blossom on the battlefield" storys in each. They both have pretty excellent gunfight scenes as well.

While both have government and politics as influences to the plot, they are handled very differently.

Allison and Lillia

Allison and Lillia

It is the year 3287, and the countries of Roxche and Soux-Beil have been feuding for one hundred and thirty years. In the country of Roxche, the young air force pilot Allison has just reunited with her childhood friend Wil; and together, they are about to embark on a grand adventure. Whether it's ending the war between the countries with the help of a legendary treasure, traveling into hostile territory, or helping restore a princess's right to the throne, Allison and Wil will complete their missions with kindness and honor.

Yet another anime based on the interwar period combined with militaristic themes. Odds are you might like one if you liked the other. Though I find Allison and Lillia the better one of those two.

wolfangel87

Allison and Lillia and Valkyria Chronicles involve a journey that a group of people have to take to try and make it to a peaceful setting.  War is intermediate and upfront in the lives of the main characters.
