Samurai Champloo

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Cowboy Bebop

I'm loathe to state the obvious, but if you didn't already know, Samurai Champloo is made by the same people who did Bebop. They are quite different anime, obviously, but a lot of the same elements exist in both. Larger than life characters stumble through life fighting and starving, while funny and serious things things happen. It's a golden equation. Though Champloo lacks the awesome Jazzy beats that Bebop has, Bebop likewise misses out on the swordplay and stronger humor elements of Champloo. Watch both. You won't be sorry you did.

Gunsmith Cats

Both Gunsmith Cats and Battle Programmer Shirase are steeped in comedy, action, and suspense. Though the former anime has a bit more of the two latter elements, I feel that Gunsmith Cats shares nicely with the theme of international intrigue and professional rivalry that Battle Programmer Shirase has. Though a gun is fired all of one time in BPS, fans of the dramatic flare in Gunsmith Cats will like to watch BPS for the laughs at least, and fans of BPS will enjoy GC for its fast paced action.

Azumanga Daioh

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Midori Days

Although it seems like a strange pairing, Midori no Hibi and Azumanga kind of belong together. Although Midori no Hibi is a bit more story driven and well... openly surreal, both Azumanga Daioh and MnH share a "strange daily Japanese High School" vibe, as well as having plenty of sardonic humor and slapstick comedy slipped in for good effect. Not to mention the interwoven social commentary. Oh yeah, it's there baby.

Sailor Moon

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Cardcaptor Sakura

Of course this is a good follow up to Sailor Moon. Every genre treatment by Clamp rocks. Trust me, Clamp never fails.

Angelic Layer

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Rockman EXE

Both series are about kids using electronic avatars to do the fighting for them. I won't say that Rockman EXE is as high profile as Angelic Layer, but its certainly a decent series.

Gunsmith Cats

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Noir

Two different anime with similar themes. Two women armed for bear strike out against all odds. Despite the fact that Noir is darker than Gunsmith Cats, I think the gun toting action both offer is appealing. And both are definitely worth watching. Don't take my word for it...

Eiken

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Excel Saga

Both equal in sexual debauchery and parody, Excel Saga and Eiken are perfect for each other. Not for the feint of heart. Not for kids either.

Rurouni Kenshin

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Read or Die

More over the top action, Read or Die offers the same super heroic villains and affable and sympathetic heroes, as well as just being darn good shows. Its a pity Read or Die was not as long as Rourouni Kenshin.

Metropolis

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Chobits

Taking a deep look into our societies through analogy, both Chobits and Metropolis are interesting looks into possible near futures, and the results of advances in culture, society, and technology.

Rurouni Kenshin

Worlds apart, both Kenshin and Jubei Chan do indeed portray certain aspects of Japanese culture, as well as highligting samurai action. Kenshin the quentisential over the top samurai drama, and Jubei Chan the parody magical girl samurai revival. Its all good baby.

Ranma 1/2

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Love Hina

The mother of all romantic comedies. Ranma 1/2 is full of martial arts mayhem, compromising situations, making it every ounce as funny as Love Hina. Also, Akane is likely the only other anime character that can launch a guy as far as Naru does.

Another, more tame magical girl parody. Very funny!

X TV

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Shamanic Princess

Though not quite as deep as X TV, this series is at about the same tone. If you liked the dark elements of Shamanic Princess, you'll likely like X. And heck, its Clamp

Ah! My Goddess

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Love Hina

Ah! My Goddess has about all the ingredients that make a show like Love Hina a success. The "Harem" anime was made popular by entires such as Ah! My Goddess and Tenchi Muyo. Just keep in mind that Keiichi is not nearly as engaging a character as Keitaro, though Belldandy beats Naru any day.

Check out the Live Action Version. Ok, its a cop drama, but if you like dramas, this one is top notch!

Rurouni Kenshin

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Trigun

Two series with VERY similar formula, with two radically different settings. If you liked Trigun, you will like Kenshin TV. Even if Kenshin had the emberassing period after the Kyoto arc... Regardless, you won't wanna miss it!

Key the Metal Idol is a very serious anime, as opposed to Nuku Nuku. However, both contain androids, and I think that both eventually come to the same message. Can an andrioid be treated and respected the same as a human? Can they have the same rights? Well, ok, not so much with Nuku Nuku, but Nuku and Key do share a certain naivety.

Escaflowne

Magic Knight Rayearth

Another "out of this world" adventure, complete with giant robots and a fantasy setting. Similar, but different enough to stand on its own.

Bubblegum Crisis

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Metropolis

You might enjoy stories about mega-cities and the struggle of the underclass against an uncaring controling interest. In this case, both Bubblegum Crisis and Metropolis are for you. Both have large cities with robot servants, as well as struggling rebels wanting to be free of the clutches of the city leaders and their machinations. Both classics, both excellent anime.
