Synopsis:

Disturbed by Japan’s emergence as the de facto world leader in robotics, the United Nations instituted an international treaty requiring stringent regulations. When vocal objections failed to overturn the decision, Japan chose to withdraw from the UN and vanished from world view in a self-imposed isolation made possible by an impenetrable electromagnetic barrier. Now, ten years later in 2067, the only means of contact between Japan and the world belongs to Daiwa Heavy Industries, a powerful corporation monopolizing the world’s robotics market. The uneasy truce comes under question when SWORD, a U.S. special forces unit, finds disturbing evidence that Japan may have sinister designs for the rest of the world. SWORD must now infiltrate Japan to separate fact from fiction, but is anyone prepared for the truth?

Appleseed Movie

Appleseed Movie
  • Movie (1 ep x 105 min)
  • 2004

In a world where mankind is at the brink of destruction, one lone scientist has concocted the means to save it: bioroids. These artificial humans coexist with humans in the city of Olympus, under the watchful eye of the supercomputer Gaia -- to stabilize society. The military strongly opposes their use, however, and the elite soldier Deunan may hold the key to saving both the human race and the lives of the bioroids. Teamed up with an old friend, Briareos, Deunan must race against the clock to discover the secret of the Appleseed before countless lives are tragically lost...

The animation of both movies is very similar. Both are set in a future where ''bioroids'' and robots play an important part in human society. The theme is also alike, it deals with the question; ''Whats better, humans or androids?''. There also is a great deal of action in the two of them.

redteardrop

Both movies have a very similar feel in the animation style as well as being set in the future. With small mech suits and an underlying question on the defenition of human freedom, these movies keep you entertained on an action and socialogical level.

If you like futuristic style anime similar to Ghost in the Shell, then I would reccomend both Appleseed Movie and Vexille.

runpsicat

Both movies address some of the ethical and moral concerns that would arise should society closely integrate technologies that blur the boundaries between man and machine, e.g. bioroids, androids and cyborgs.

ion123

Both movies have aweosme graphics, awesome stories. Both movies have some types of andriods. The world in both movies is under danger of destruction. So, if these are the types of things that interest you, you should check out both movies.

Gobstopper

I believe Vexille was done by the same guys who did Appleseed movie. Great storyline and mechs looks similar. The CG in Vexille is fantastic; more of a cell shading look--similar to Appleseed: Ex Machina. All three are great!

cerberus38

Both anime movies have a similar setting, in a futuristic city with a large population of androids. The main protagonists are very similar; they are both arse-kicking women belonging to a police/special force unit in armoured suits. The animation is also very similar and very easy on the eye. If you liked one, check out the other.

InuyashaSit

Both movies are set in a post-apocalyptic type world. Where humans and machines have to co-exist.

Both focus on the idea of humanity and what it entails to be human. Can you create a "better" human. and other ideas like that

The CGI animation is wonderful. It's quite appealing to watch, and the detail that was put into each character is apparent.

Plus the action is dope. So all in all, they are quite similar. If you liked one, you will most likely like the other (^.^)

aritentd

If you like the style of one, you won't be disappointed with the other. Visually these titles look alike and they are gorgeous, especially in hd.

Both stories are dealing with the idea of a society formed by artificial beings and are questioning our morals in dealing with such society.

If you are in a mood for a great looking sci-fi, you have just found them, but don't expect too much from the story.

Innocency

Both Appleseed and Vexille have many things in common. Most obvious is their animation style; a hybrid between CGI and conventional anime, and both make great use of it - which is all the more appreciative when both movies include scenes of great fights/battles in a sci-fi futuristic world. Also, both movies have a plot which is full of calm scenes and intense scenes, providing enough plot and action to leave the viewer satisfied. Another reason for this recommendation is regarding how both movies play out, as they lead to a great climax involving threatenly huge and advanced technology.

nosaint317

The simularities are easy to see. The 3D animations, the mech suits made for battle, the people using science to play god with the human race in simular but different ways, and in both cases, the main character is a bad ass military chick. If you liked either, I'd definately recommend the other.

Proxy11

Both movies have a extremely similar CG style as well as action scenes. They take place in the future with mechs/suits as well. Just that is enough right.

MwrulesC

These two movies share a similar animation style. Both are set in the future and feature a female lead who is quite capable of holding her own in a fight. There is plenty of action in both movies, as they explore what it means to be human. While I feel that Appleseed is the better of the two, I think if you enjoyed one, you'd probably enjoy the other.

I like pretty things, I like sci-fi, I like action and all three of these come wrapped up in two pretty little packages called "Vexille" and "Ghost in the Shell".

Both based in a future based on robotics and cyborgs, the race is on to stop the protagonist from using the technology to their evil end.

I have both OST for the series, and happily listen to both again and again.

redteardrop

Where is the line drawn between human and robot? We've already started to blur the line in modern days, but these shows give us some ideas of what may come. Both of these movies are about the human condition, technology and the scary situations that can arise from advanced tech, and make you question where we will really be going in the years to come.

neutrino

Both are cyber-punk movies that explore what happens when the line between man and machine blur.  I personally liked GitS better, as it is more philosophical, but Vexille presents some interesting ideas as well.

Appleseed: Ex Machina

Appleseed: Ex Machina
  • Movie (1 ep x 104 min)
  • 2007

In the far future, the world lives under the guidance of Olympus – a utopia built after the end of a global war that decimated over half the world’s population. Mankind lives beside both cyborgs and bioroids, a breed of genetically-engineered humans who don’t feel negative emotions. Deunan and Briareous continue to fight for the Olympus task force E.S.W.A.T., but after Briareous is injured in a mission involving a terrorist attack, Deunan is forced to partner with Tereus: a prototype combat bioroid whose genetic makeup was taken from Briareous. Together, the three must try to unravel an insidious terrorist plot and save Olympus once more.

valondar

CGI-laden anime films with flashy cyberpunk landscapes and dodgy character models. They provide a barrel-load of action that covers up thin plot and shallow characterisation. Ex Machina is the stronger of the two - and lacks Vexille's desperate urge to be the Matrix - but you'll probably enjoy both on some level.

cerberus38

Both movies have kick-arse female protagonists who belong to a police force of sorts in futuristic cities. The themes of these movies also explore the boundaries between humans and androids and what it means to be a machine. Both have a similar feel to them and it must be said that both have excellent computer animation.

I absolutely adore series that are pure eye candy. What sets FF:AC and Vexille apart from the others are the superb story lines. They are much more adult and involved that some other movies out there.

Both have an amazing soundtrack, and make sure you will not be happy just watching them once!

Burabura

So, I just caught Vexille on Netflix. I went in expecting very little and came out feeling surprisingly fulfilled. I want you to have a similar experience.

What are the similarities between FFAC and Vexille? Well, superficially, you could say - stunning CG animation, relatively mature plots, escalating conflict, deceitful corporations, sense of the unbelievable, and a general man vs. mechanization dynamic.

Here's what I suggest: if you enjoyed either movie, just do yourself a favor and spend another 1-2 hours watching the other. If anything, they're both better than your standard Halo/CoD cutscenes (and who doesn't love those?!).

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex

It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it. This series follows Public Peace Section 9, a government organization that plays behind the scenes to stop the worst of these criminals. Join Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team as they take you through an incredibly vivid world filled with plots of such depth and intrigue as is seldom seen.

cerberus38

Both animes follow a female protagonist belonging to a government unit investigating androids. Both explore the boundaries between being human and being a machine, though Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex is much more complex while Vexille is more action-oriented. If you liked one it might be an idea to check out the other.
