If you like Innocent Venus' themes of a post-apocalyptic world, injustice between haves and have-nots, and the struggle of the few against the machine of the state, then you should try to see Eureka Seven. It has all these themes and more, on a more epic scale, in a more fleshed out world, with a great mix of action, drama, and humour.

Both anime have a unique idea about mecha, and involve a strange girl being hidden from a government which seeks to weaponize her.

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.

Both Full Metal Panic! and Innocent Venus center around the protection of one girl and feature mecha units that they use to fight. Both of the girls develop a "love" for their protectors. Although in Full Metal Panic it's a romantic type love, while in Innocent Venus it's more of a father-daughter type love. Innocent Venus is a little more serious than FMP!, but there are a few characters in Innocent Venus that provide some comic relief. If you liked one, then you should give the other a try.

When watching Innocent Venus I found many aspects of the show similar to Code Geass. Both animes involve revolts within Japan and characters fighting for human rights. The protagonists are both hunted down by the government and the animes involve fight scenes using mechas.

Gun x Sword

Gun x Sword

Evergreen would be a peaceful and prosperous place – if it wasn’t under siege by bandits. Most of the inhabitants have already been killed or driven off, but among the ones remaining is Wendy – a young girl who is intent on finding her kidnapped brother. As the outlaws bring their full arsenal to bear, including one of the dreaded Armor war-machines, the fate of Evergreen looks sealed. However, a slim hope appears in the form of the wanderer Van, who possesses extraordinary martial skills and even an Armor of his own. But Van has motives and goals of his own, which don’t necessarily involve saving besieged towns...

I got the same feeling from watching both these anime's, I quite enjoyed them both really much. I highly recommend if you enjoyed one you should try the other.

They are a mecha/Military anime, So if your completely against mecha this will not be suited for you.

they both take place in a post apoctoplyptic future very similar protagonists in the sense that the charecters are deep and are so similar they could be related and an interesting storyline revolving around fighting and character interaction

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

BlackEsper BlackEsper says...

Whilst being dissimilar in storyline, I found both of these series' have a similar feel. Innocent Venus focuses on the protection of an innocent girl from the government whereas Neon Genesis Evangelion consists of teenagers protecting their city from immensely powerful 'Angels', and both of these goals are achieved via mechs piloted by the protagonists, which have a much darker nature and pivotal role than is initially apparent. Despite IV not quite living up to NGE's depth and overall scope, they both explore questions such as the future of humanity and the nature of the psyche to different extents. Fans of either series will get a kick, or perhaps even more, out of the other.

Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.

If you liked Guilty Crown you would also like Innocent Venus because both have similar themes. For example, both series deal with a post-apocalyptic setting, with mecha and the military involved. Both have sciience fiction elements. In addtion, both series relove around a girl with mysterious powers. While thier plots may be different, both series are very similar in nature.
