If you're looking for anime similar to Expelled From Paradise, you might like these titles.
In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.
Expelled From Paradise was surprisingly good. My expectations for anime movies are something around garbage and dog poo. Both of these anime have the common theme of a person* being stuck in a foreign landscape, far away from what they know.
Trying not to give too much away with this but:
hot anime chick
hot anime dude
overmind that controls society which have varying importance depending on which of these anime you watched(absurdly obvious in the first minutes of both anime)
people teaching goobers(foreigner) how to interact with society.
Both have a common theme of the post apocalyptic Earth and the creation of artificial intelligence. Both main characters face internal struggle to preserve humanity in a high functioning technological world.
When I watched Expelled from paradise, it directly reminded me of Gargantia. Both play on the devastated world, where a more or less working community has been formed by the remaining humans. When the main charakter, who comes from a technological advanced society, shows up, he/she has some problems to get along in the world foreign to him/her.
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?
Expelled from Paradise is the poor man's version of Ghost in the Shell. They both feature cyberization of the human mind with a female security team member as the lead character (pretty similar, eh?). Expelled from Paradise makes a shallow effort at exploring what "humanity" means in this context, while GITS answers this question with its iconic style and with all of the maturity and sophistication that EFP lacks.
They deal with some hard scifi concepts of transhumanism, the way the world changes when human consiousness is digital, and humanity's interaction with A.I.
In the future, all facets of society are tied into OZ, a virtual world inhabited by millions of users. Kenji, one of OZ’s moderators, was set to begin another typical summer when the lovely Natsuki asked him to accompany her to her hometown as a job. However, little did Kenji know that the 'job' entailed pretending to be Natsuki’s fiancé in front of her eccentric family! Now on display and feeling like a fish out of water, Kenji tries his best to fit in with Natsuki and her relatives, until one day he receives a mysterious math problem through a text message. As an avid math fanatic Kenji can’t help but try to solve it, unaware that his actions may jeopardize not only OZ, but also the entire world...
if you liked the virtual world of one anime, you wil find something pretty similar in the other. when the human existence is mostly virtual, and something suddenly threatens that, it's up to the protagonists to figure out what's going on. While Summer Wars has a bit more family drama, Expelled shows us what it means to be human. So, give it a try!
Summer Wars is a nice upgrade from Expelled from Paradise with more memorable characters and plot
In a post-apocalyptic future, a group of soldiers is sent to a ghost city to destroy an automated sentry.
Both of these titles are set on a post-apocolyptic earth where a rogue robot is stirring up trouble. Both anime feature wide sweeping deserts and remnants of modern civilizations. While the animation style and the group dynamics are a tad different, both have some intense fight scenes and plenty of action. If you liked one, check out the other.
"I have only abandoned my body, I still live here" - are the words emailed to friends of Chisa, several days after her death by suicide. As Lain delves deeper into the world of the "Wired" (also known as the internet), the line between it and reality becomes more and more unclear. Close the world, open the nExt.
Both shows deal with "Digitalizing Human Life", in Lain they experiment doing that, in Paradise, they been living like that for who knows how long, to the point they have no idea what it feels to be of flesh & blood. Both shows propel several questions regarding creating technologies like that. Is it really worth to try to digitalize ourselves in order to live forever and be free of our corporal needs? Is it worth it to leave our flesh behind?
Dive 2 of Alice in Cyberland was aired on TV along with Dive 1, but was never released on DVD/VHS. Scriptwriter Chiaki J. Konaka suggested that the poor animation quality of the episode was part of the reason for its exclusion in the home video release.

Targeted by net-jackers, Eiji does his best to survive; but is this a test, or a game of life and death? And why do images of the AI EVE keep appearing on his screen?
