Metropolis is a grand high-tech city-state populated by humans and robots alike. It is in these streets that Detective Shunsaku Ban and his sidekick Kenichi search for the rebel scientist Dr. Laughton who unbenounced to them, is developing a super android named Tima as a tool for the Duke of Metropolis. What starts out as a normal case turns into mayhem as the scientist is murdered, and the true plans of the Duke are finally revealed...
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
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.

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.
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.
The year is 2179: humans and robots have colonized Mars. A newer Third-Type robot has been designed to interact undetected in human society. That is, until a man named D'anclaude discovers their secret and starts a movement to wipe them out. Armitage is a Third-Type that works for the police with her partner Ross, and now these two must rid the planet of D'anclaude and his evil plans.
If you liked Wonderful days you may like Armitage III: Polymatrix. they both got this robot period. the cars, bikes, guns and stuff.
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.
It is the year 2113, and mankind's reach has extended to space. After the mysterious destruction of a space cruiser from the alien planet Elysium, a full-out attack is launched on the unsuspecting planet Earth, causing much death and destruction. Now, the fate of the world lies with 4 knights, and their ability to wield ancient relics buried deep beneath the Earth's surface. With Elysium's force pressing closer, and Armageddeon upon them, they must fight to save Earth.
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 ;)
A mysterious new hacker known only as the Puppet Master threatens to create chaos, erasing and rewriting the memories of his victims: humans who have cast away their physical body to become cyborgs. Is he an evil genius, or could he signal the beginning of a new age in the relationship between man and machine?
Wonderful Days combines stunning 3D CGI animation with a compelling storyline, and the same can be said about Ghost in the Shell.
If you liked the cool animation and mysterious plot of Wonderful Days, then Ghost in the Shell is for you.
What I love about these anime is the amazing details, scenery, and music. They immerse you into a future which is both chilling and possible, and explore the lengths to which humans may stray from their humanity. Wonderful Days features man against nature, while Ghost in the Shell throws man against machine, but the conflict is similar, well structured, and breath-taking till the end. Fascinating in both shape and content, these anime are masterpieces of the same genre.
