Martian Successor Nadesico

Martian Successor Nadesico

When Akito Tenkawa went looking for answers about his parents' deaths, he had no idea that he'd be indoctrinated into the spaceship Nadesico not only as a cook, but also as a mecha pilot – a job he wants nothing to do with! Alongside his childhood friend Yurika, stoic Ruri, otaku Gai and other misfit crewmates, Akito and the Nadesico crew find themselves in the middle of a brutal war against both the dreaded Jovian Lizards, and the military itself, who wants the civilian ship under their control...

Both Nadesico and Vandread you have that "out in space" and "fighting for mankind" sort of mentality, but then you have the light humor and interesting character development. Akito is a fairly good match for Hibiki. You'll like it!
Yenya
Both Vandread (first and second stages) share with Nadesico the "space opera" characteristics. Also the mecha/action scenes are likable in both of them, as well as the romantic relationship between the two main characters.
Kastrophee

Miisfits who pilot spaceships and mechas, while fighting mysterious aliens/enemies who use AI-controlled ships. If you liked one the other is most likely up your alley , though Vandread is more serious while Nadesico has more humor (so you will most likely end up liking one more then the other, but which one depends on you.)

chii

Many very unique people tossed onto a spaceship, with their fighting mecca's, all to save earth from invading enemies. Tonnes of laughter to be had with each fun filled episode. If you liked one you'd surely like the other.

Kiddy Grade

Kiddy Grade

In the distant future many things have changed. Worlds are colonized and people travel the stars freely. The GOTT (Galactic Organization of Trades and Tarifs) exists to maintain order and peace along the galaxies. Enter two ES members. Eclair and Lumiere. They are sent on missions to keep the universal peace, under the flag of GOTT. But soon they come to realize that there is more going on behind the scenes than they previously imagined...

Kiddy Grade and the 2nd season of Vandread both have alarmingly similar aspects: 2nd season of Vandread kicks into plot mode, dealing with much more interesting and serious situations, which is what happens to Kiddy Grade halfway through. In addition, they contain a mix of ecchiness, plot, humor, and odd situations.
TheBurningCrow
Aside from all the big boobs in both of these series, you will like the fairly good action and the overall plot. Kiddy Grade doesn't really have much of a plot until the end, and even then it's still weak compared to Vandread. I will say that the style and feeling of both series is quite the same, although Vandread has humor and Kiddy Grade really doesn't.
freakzilla

With less comedy and more action the comparison between Kiddy Grade and Vandread grows thicker. Both series get more story content towards the end. Good sci-fi anime are ahead!

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...

Stellvia has a very similar art style to Vandread. Even though it wasn't done by Gonzo, it has that feeling. It's another space comedy dealing with ships, mecha and the end of the world.

sothis
Similar genre... space. Different tone, but still similar in its use of plot, combined with a great deal of character development and growth.
XMrNiceguyX
Space is a main subject in both series. So do humanoid robots and other spacecrafts. Though where Vandread focusses on the humor, Stellvia clearly focusses alot more on the drama and character development.

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.

What happens when a strong willed hero with a thing for mecha's meets up, and is forced to work with, something he's never seen before--a cute chick? Sound familiar? If you liked the humor in Vandread, chances are you'll appreciate Sousuke's position in Full Metal Panic, as he is charged to protect, and worse, rely on, a beautiful high school student with a strange gift.

Very similar animation style. Doesn't take place primarily in space, but has a distinct, beautiful sci-fi feel to it. One of my favorite series.
TheBurningCrow

Melty Lancer is another GONZO animation that is really great. It has a lot of twists, interesting aliens and a great story line. The action and animation is top-notch. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who liked Vandread.
