ICE

ICE

In a dystopic future, the Mir space station fell from space for an unknown reason -- bringing with it a death sentence for every man on Earth. Women have adapted to the loss and for the most part, are living their lives in peace, but bio terrorism is on the rise and the women of Japan need protectors. Hitomi Landsknecht is the leader of a group of such protectors, but she and her comrades will soon discover the new technology known as "ICE". Mysterious and unknown, it is somehow related to males being born again – an occurrence which may signal the rise of humanity once again. However, the technology may also create a monster and destroy what is left of womankind. Can the remaining females change their destiny or will it be too late?

Merryberry

Both series explores the end of the world and the desperate situation that the population finds themselves in. While Wolf's Rain sees the goal as the finding of paradise, Project ICE is a matter of existance without males. The apocolyptic setting will most likely make you enjoy both of them, especially with the touch of a world with the mechanical means but lacking the motive for rebirth.

Interlude

Interlude
  • OVA (3 eps x 40 min)
  • 2004

In Japan, there is a disturbing rumor being spread that people's shadows are ripping from their bodies, never to be seen again. For one young man, the frightening nature of this rumor is just beginning to manifest in the form of a nightmarish world that he can't seem to escape from. In this place full of dark minions and demons, he and his friends fight futilely against unknown enemies, only to be brought back to the "real world" as quickly as they left it. Is this real, or a dream? Only one person holds the key to destroying and saving the world as he knows it...

Very similar themes (not the wolf part).  I don't really want to say too much more because it will spoil the ending of Interlude, but if you liked the overall theme of either of these two anime then you might want to check out the other.

Jyu Oh Sei

Jyu Oh Sei

Thor and Rai are twins who live on an advanced space colony called ‘Juno’. Things take a nasty turn one day when they are kidnapped by the Federal Army’s Special Forces and abandoned on the hostile prison planet Chimera. A cycle on Chimera consists of 181 days of scorching heat and 181 nights of below-freezing temperatures – not to mention it is populated almost entirely by carnivorous plants. The convicts on Chimera have found only one means of survival – reverting back to the law of beasts. For the strong-willed Thor adjustment comes naturally; but for his naive and weaker brother Rai, things do not go as well. Thor must now use all his wits, strength and courage to endure life as a member of Chimeran society, rise above the rest, and take the only ticket off this planet: becoming the Beast King.

Kiyohime

Just like Wolf's Rain, Jyu Oh Sei has an 'end of the world, only the strongest will last' theme. Both implore military themes that are the main cause of the world ending. In both animes their are characters that fight, kill, and chase after a seemingly impossible dream to live in a world that does not exist.

These anime don't have much in common on the surface, but both Mars Daybreak and Wolf's Rain revolve around characters who leave behind the world that they know to pursue an idyllic dream that may not be achievable. Beyond that, there's something about the feeling of these shows or the way that characters interact that resonates for me.

Naruto

Naruto

Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.

Before you blow off the connections between ninjas and wolves, give me a second. Sasuke and Naruto are rivals, driving each other forward and taking turns bearing the burdens of their squad. Likewise, Tsume and Kiba are pretty evenly matched and lead their pack together, which is great when one of them needs to do something alone. This dynamic binds these two shows together.
