Do you like wonderful animations and good graphics? Metropolis is one of the newer animes who is 3D animated and mixed with celshading. Usually it doens't look good but trust me this does. Exactly like Wonderful days does. The story is abit different though and doesn't have that much incommon. But the polis story and law breakers is still there. It's deffinitly the same genre. So if you enjoyed watching Wonderful days check this one out!

These movies both draws you inside, stir something up inside you and leave you with a somewhat sad feeling at the end. Not that they have much in common besides that but still realy something to watch if you liked the other
TheBurningCrow
Both of these anime take place in a city that is run by corrupt rulers (typical story I know!), but each has a hero that will impact society, or at least try. the effects and visuals are overwhelming in both of these anime, be sure not to miss them.

Sci-fi about an upheaval of oppressed class mingled with a somewhat tragic love story, that is what Wonderful Days and Metropolis have in common. Although using a bit different visual style, they both look pretty impressive.

If you have enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other.

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
  • Movie (1 ep x 105 min)
  • 2001

In the year 2065, life on Earth is almost extinct due to an invasion of creatures known as "Phantoms." Only a few cities remain in the midst of a wasteland, which are shielded by barriers that the spirit-like Phantoms cannot cross. While the brilliant scientist Aki Ross and her mentor Dr. Sid want to find a way to peacefully end the conflict with the Phantoms, the military would prefer to fire a space cannon to eradicate the mysterious life forms from the planet – though Earth might be destroyed in the process. In a race against time, can Aki and Dr. Sid find a solution before the cannon is fired?

Both have similar post-apocalytic settings and excellent graphics. If you like futuristic films, excellent graphics and action then these films are for you.

Lan

For animated movies that push the envelope of CGI you can't get much better than these. Even If you don't care for either story just watch and stare in complete awe at the absolutely stunning CGI scenery and your time will still be well spent. There are scenes in both of the movies where it doesn't even look animated it looks so amazingly realistic.

I thoroughly enjoyed both. while I found personally that wonderful days was alot more bleak, they both gave you a sense of people eking out an existence on an "island sanctuary" surrounded by endless wastelands.

If you liked Wonderful days you may like Armitage III: Polymatrix. they both got this robot period. the cars, bikes, guns and stuff.
TheBurningCrow
Both of these anime have a theme about claiming certain rights for a group in society. In Armitage, we have the thirds, and in Wonderful Days we have a whole class of outcasts and underclass citizens, so either way, there is a fight for freedom, and great visuals. Wonderful Days is quite a bit more impressive visually than Armitage, but Armitage has a more compelling story.

Aside from both being made by a Korean animation studio, the special effects and lack of heavy plot are very similar in these. Elysium has a lot of cool special effects, but the way Wonderful Days blends CG and Cell is beautiful. Mostly for eye-candy, but watch them, they are not a waste of time if you liked the other.

While both of these movies are Korean animations, they also have somewhat of a similar feel... beautiful eye candy, with fairly shallow characters that you can't get attached to... but still worth watching to check out the visual effects ;)

Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".

Both Wonderful Days and Ergo Proxy are about a polluted world in which only one city exists. The main characters have mixed feelings about the city, and think there might be another option.

Dozo

Dark and post-apocalyptic. Ergo proxy places more weight on the dialogue and philosophical under-tones than WD but the two of them portray a world destroyed by humans themselves and the struggle to break free from the establishment. The eerie environment and high-tech cities in either one will remind you of the other. I did enjoy EP more than WD, but WD is definitely worth watching.
