In a far and distant future, men and women have become mortal enemies. Each living on seperate planets, an interstellar war is being fought between the two very different peoples. Hibiki, a mere 3rd class worker, finds himself in the middle of a huge space battle, facing the nemesis of mankind: Womankind!
The future of humanity is in peril, as they are confronted with the threat of an intergalactic clash with a warrior-like alien race, and the only one who can save them is... Captain Tylor?! Join a crew of misfits and rejects including an alcoholic doctor, a gorgeous nurse, an anal-retentive commander and a bunch of really stupid marines as they try to make it out in space and to discover whether their captain is a misunderstood genius or a total moron like he seems to be.
Captain Tylor is just another great space comedy with an interesting underlying story. The humor is very similar to that of Vandread. If you liked one of these, I'm sure you will enjoy the other.
Space adventures, Girls, Boys, Lots of laughs... And whit these series things never get too serious.
Vandread is about Girls and boys why do silly things in space.
And Tylor is about silly captain who does stubid stuff in space.
Like ridiculously fun and silly shows set in outer space? Both Vandread and Irresponsible Captain Tylor are good bets.
Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
Both anime are about some kind of jurney and both include fights and main character is a boy who fight in a mech . Moreover don't u think that Yoko from gurren-lagann and Dita from vandread look similar =P?
Men who set out to prove that there is more to life than the lot they were given. Villians that treat humanity as no more than cattle. Giant robots that combine and are powered as much by emotion and will as they are technology. Mighty battles are fought for the sake of humanity. Such are the similarities between Vandread and Gurren Lagann.
Gurren Lagann is a bit more over the top than Vandread but both are comedic, action filled anime romps. If you enjoyed one, I imagine you will like the other.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is a Sci-fi action/adventure anime with a hint of romance and completely ridicules all the way through. Each time he gains a new ability I was rolling with laughter.
The same is true for Vandread, this is another Sci-fi action/adventure super mecha anime that again is completely ridicules, two guys on a ship of nothing but females who all want him.
Both start strong, deliver almost continuously, and end with a bang! They are defiantly worth watching.
Kazuki Yotsuga is able to see things that others can't; in his visions, giant robots battle it out in the streets, causing massive damage in their wake. Though his visions have made him an outcast from the rest of his peers, they have attracted the attention of Ken Sanada – a physicist who believes Kazuki’s visions are a gateway into a parallel world! He places Kazuki into one of his inventions and accidentally sends him to the parallel world in his visions, where he finds himself in the middle of a war for control of the world! Kazuki must now become a pilot of one of the robots in order to join the fight for peace, all the while trying to find his way back to his own world…
Mecha action, harem hijinks, and a little perverted humor await in either of these two shows. Both tend toward the silly more often than the serious, but are able to hit with dramatic impact when it counts.
Like most boys his age, the young Renton thinks of nothing but reffing – riding trapar waves on a board – and idolizes Holland, the leader of the renegade group of reffers named Gekko State. As an orphan of a famous hero, he lives a boring life with his grandfather until the beautiful Eureka crashes, literally, into his life. Now, with the help of his newfound friend and crush, Renton finds himself living amongst the crew of Gekko State. The errands are hard and the bullying is fierce, but with Eureka by his side, Renton just might find the courage to tough it out and even save the world!
While both are Mecha series and this would seem to make them obvious recommends. What really links these to each other is that they delve deep into male/female relationships and questions and situations you end up in with while also in a battle. The both also do fairly good character developement throughout the series and keep you questioning where exactly the story will end up.
If you are a fan of the mechanized armor then Eureka Seven is perfect for you. It does a good job of keeping to the storyline. Has a great set of characters and twist. It's to the point although it's 50 episodes; it is well worth a watch.
In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.
both are set in the future in space where humans have left earth years ago and are now at war. each main chharacter is a boy who has a mecha
Both Vandread and Gargantia have mecha featured, but in neither case is the giant robot the star of the show. If you are seeking a show about characters with a "mecha "feel and subplot, these two anime are Mecha Lite shows, both without the drama and angst generally associated with mecha-driven shows.
