If you liked the X: The Movie anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Kagura is a young man who has tragically lost not only his friend, but the woman he loves as well. With only his friend Asami to turn to, Kagura quickly finds his life spinning out of control when he discovers that he is a Spirit User -- one of the Elementalors who command the forces of nature. Now, along with his fellow Elementalors, Kagura must race against the clock to stop Lord Shiki from causing an imbalance in nature by trying to save his long lost daughter, Shiohisa.
Both seem to be made from bits of a tv series and don't bother explaining anything. While the X movie does have a series to go along with it Elementalors does not thus making it more confusing than X. The characters in both are very similar in the way that they can use interesting powers and have deep relationships with each other. If you liked either one hour of confusion you might like the other hour of huh?
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Both Elfen Lied and X have the same kind of feeling when it comes to death. Death/murder is portrayed in a very morbid and shocking way. Also there is a hint of innocence as "Lucy" and "Kamui" both have a lack of understanding about the situation/s that they are placed in.
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...
Both are sad stories, where friends are parted because of death. In both stories the world is a metropolis and it starts to deterioate as the films progress. In both the power of friendship is strong and characters put their lives at risk to help one another. In both metropolis and X: the movie the pairs are torn apart because of ideals they are drawn into fighting for. If you liked the story line of one, then you would surely like the other.

What does pink and black have in common?
Huge blue eyes, splendid swords that shines and expelled dreams, hope, love and hate every time a battle awaits. Battles in which Kaumi (X: The Movie) and Utena (Shoujo Kakumei Utena: Adolescence Mokushiroku) fight with their hearts in their hands, tightening it until the encounter ends. A fight that represents to these two their most loving person, they fight for love. Both series exploded in fantastic new era fights and elegant moves. Main characters promote friendship, sacrifice, sorrow, and, as expected, an infinite courage; willingly to go to the end of the world until their most especial person is safe. If you had already watched one of them, you surely have to watch the other to be able to see what pink and black have in common.
