In a time of great heroes, the evil Sephiroth and the power of Meteor were vanquished by a warrior named Cloud Strife and his companions.

Meanwhile, in the shadows, a new enemy has appeared: Kadaj, who holds the key to the destruction of all life. Against insurmountable odds, Cloud, Tifa, Barrett, Cid and the rest of the gang must band together one last time to defeat Kadaj and save the world from annihilation.
Can't compete with bikes! The protagonists of both movies have big black and powerful two-wheeled vehicles that leave you wondering "If I had that bike..."
And yes, both have stunning haircuts as well.
For animated movies that push the envelope of CGI you can't get much better than Wonderful Days and FF: Advent Children. 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.
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.
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.
In the world of Prestal, Noble men perform noble deeds for noble purposes. All of this is performed under the careful gaze of the Guild, a race apart who live in cities in the sky. We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.
Ignore, for the moment, that Last EXILE also uses heavy CG for some impressive visual effects, and think about why you enjoyed the plot of Wonderful Days. The struggle of an underclass against the elite, who control not only all the resources, but also the power to crush those who oppose them at will? Idealistic hope for the future, looking into the sky for a better world? An all powerful, and mysterious biological machine at the centre of it all, that seems to hold the solution to everyone's questions? A group of comedy lowlifes? Some really neat flying bits? Yep, got all that. So in summary, unless you only like Korean anime, Last EXILE has everything you want and more. Except Klimt.
My Beautiful Girl, Mari is a story of two childhood friends, Nam-woo and Jun-ho, who are growing up in a fishing village full of unwanted change. With the discovery of a glowing marble, Nam-woo sometimes finds himself in a lush, dreamlike world, inhabited by a beautiful girl named Mari. With more change inevitable, Nam-woo and Jun-ho struggle to cope with reality, even when tragedy strikes.
Like CGI movies? Check both of these out. Both also are conveniently Korean made, but the characters do look a bit different. In general, I think both had the same sort of formula: beautiful eye candy, but not a huge amount of plot. Anyways, I do think you'd enjoy one if you liked the other.
Ever since childhood, Kintoki (commonly known as Kai Doh Maru) has lived a difficult life of bloodshed, as a woman who was raised to be like a man. With the help of her mentor and comrades, she helps defend her city from evil spirits and beings that threaten it. However, Kintoki cannot forget her past, and soon, her past will catch up to her...
Having an interesting combination of computer generated scenery and drawn characters, Wonderful Days and Kaidomaru both try hard to push the boundaries of animation. Though the settings of the stories are rather different, if you can cope with the nonsensical exposition you should enjoy either.
