Long lost childhood love, somewhat cutesey eyed animation, and frequent blushing. you will find this and more in the somewhat serious AAY and in the more lighthearted love hina.
better by far, and so much alike its scary... the house overpopulation with cute, devoted guests, and did i mention the CUTENESS... do not watch all in one sitting as seisures will ensue
The way blue submarine is laid out (crisply military.. but only sort of... reminded me of macross. and when you take into account the way the enemy behaves, you find another parallel that realy contributes to a similar feel with these two.
If the whole shinobi thing is for you, then surely both of these will work. though jubei chan is marred by a slightly sailor moonish changing bit, it still has some pretty cool fight scenes. Naruto of course may be a little high on the magical techniques but once again, the action is really tops most of the time
While a bit more serious than ranma, it still has a lot of comedy (and lets face it, most of kenshins figts are no more believable/serious...) yet this still has a good dose of the akward romance that defines ranma
Well the feel of this one is a little less mature and polished than WHR, but the way "magic" is employed is pretty similar... albeit without pentagrams... Anyways, if it was the fact that ppl can do magic in WHR that really floats the boat then this different take on things may be a good idea to watch
The mood has the same dark, but organic grittyness that is seen most often in WHR, and the slightly goth tone of the characters follows. The music also keeps up with WHR standars as does the sound (but dont expect quite as much from the animation quality) The basis is pretty close too, being a small elite organization that takes on evil (witches for WHR, vampires for Hellsing)
The awkward romance is the same, only with mecha instead of martial arts... dunno what you think but sosuke's bout as good as ranma at showing affection. Though the romance scenes are few, they are worth it
You will find that both of these, while deemed mecha, have "robots" that are very organic both in design and in behaviour... behaviour you say? yes, and this really sets these two apart from a lot of the rest of this genre imho. If you liked ishitori from Rax, or the way unit 01 acts in NGE, then the other series will probably be rewarding for you in the same way
The awkward romances of sakuragi and megumi are both classic, and definitely not to be missed. Of course you do get a massive amount of basketball in slamdunk, and none in TnK (well maybe you see someone playing in the background once.. but thats about it) But since awkward anime romances are the best this is an acceptable difference. megumi and sakuragi have personalities that are almost the same, so you will see character interactions that follow similar patterns, and you might be hardpressed to decide whose is the more fiery (headbutting vs well.. youll understand after Tnk ep 01)
With strangely unpleasent, but likeable main characters, gritty animation, and lots and lots of blood, it is not wonder what is a like in these two. You will find similar dark atmosphere and edgy mood that drives the plot forward.
Cutesy ness big eyes, and the long lost love (well kindof brother in onegai twins...) and almost ecchi ness and ytou have a good reason to watch the other. KAoru and Maiku are really similar in how they deal with the situations that crop up, and really make these both work
Lina Inverse and Pacifica Casule, both mid teens, and both are powerfull... but here the resemblance ends... as lina is looud to pacifica's quiet etc etc. Same goes with Goury and Shannon... both swordsmen, but shannon is intense to goury's laid back but somehow the complete oppositeness of most of the characters makes these seem really alike.
this is another excellent romantic (somewhat ecchi) comedy
Though spike surely has a cooler style than gene, they both go through similar adventures, fighting off the mob and scrimping to get by. The gritty animation gives them a similar visual feel, but the audio (jazz for bebop and jpop in OS) serves to give them each a slightly different edge which is refreshing
Mecha mecha mecha... and main characters that while quiet and dysfunctional still manage to save the world before breakfast. Secret organizations are definitely the best, and always necessary when dealing with mecha topics, and these are two of the best ones out there. Especially good is the tone difference between these two animes, as neon genesis generally tends to be serious (with the exception of pen-pen and misato) while FMP provides frequent and healthy doses of humor (gotto love that paper whip thing of chidori's)
Just think "Megu chan" and "Ban chan" and you will soon see why if one of these is for you, so is the other one. There is a fair amount of ass kicking in both, but get backers lacks the romance that really makes TnK Shine
These are both Uber Cutesey animes. Though the anime style for chobits may seem a little serious at first, the pantsu incident will show that chobits can disho ut comedy too. The guys are nicely different, as Maiku is pretty intense, while Hideki is more likely to goof up, reversing the guy/girl situation in these two, which means your not just seeing more of the same
These are both mecha animes in what i would call a fairly realistic future sci fi type (sorry to raxephon and evangelion, but they are a little more farfetched) The mecha scenes just seem so believable (except for that damn giant red one in fmp... but i guess it's ok too) additionally the military organization and police force setting is quite similar, though you get more frequent escapes to school in fmp.
Somehow, for all it's hightechness, rax ends up with the same "really old fashioned society with technolodgy that it really shouldn't have, but has anyways" fell that really characterizes last exile. I guess it's die to the dolems, but it might also be the tokyo side of things. Additionally the glossyness of photoshop is not to be missed in the higlighted world of both rax and last exile.
The epic story elements and presentation that both of these animes exhibit really helps out the characters, and gives an extra degree of urgency to the trials that face both Claude and Elle. Of course neither are AS epic as InuYasha, but that just drags on, so its all good
