Origin: Spirits of the Past

Origin: Spirits of the Past

Agito was born into a world that is quite different than our own. Many years ago a brilliant researcher attempted to save humanity from its excessively damaged environment by altering the DNA of plants. However, these mentally-awakened plants recognized the inherent threat of humans, and attacked them; the end result was a stalemate between the forest and the few remaining human centers. Agito's home city is green with life because the forest controls it. There is an uneasy peace which is facilitated by a small number of humans that allowed the forest to alter them to be in concert with itself. Being that his father is one of those, Agito's view of the forest is not one of fear but rather one that respects the human dependency. Agito will be challenged to prove this relationship when a random event gives the humans, who still see the forest as an enemy, a new perceived advantage in their war.

I'm going to say you will most likely enjoy Gin'iro if you enjoyed Jyu-Oh-Sei not because they have the same feel, but rather because the atmosphere is similar without being the same. Taking two young boys with surprisingly different lives and placing them in suddenly difficult circumstances provides some grounds for comparison. Basically each boy experiences what could only be considered a rough awakening to the realities of their existence. They are then forced, despite their different circumstances, to physically fight for what they believe in. Strangely enough even though the worlds are different, both the series and the movie share a focus on the costs of human survival and the harsh environmental consequences of technological advancement.

Ran Ran says...

In both Origin and Jyu Oh Sei, humans have to live in a world controlled by plants. Although the plots and circumstances are very different, the general ambiance of the planets is quite similar in both. If you liked one, you'll probably like the other anime too.

asleya asleya says...

Both are futuristic anime about worlds that aren't necessarely technological.

Nature and plants play a big role in these series as well as the fight against  electronics sort of say. the Headcaracters are also very similar in their way of doing things.

DrunkenBlowfish DrunkenBlowfish says...

Both anime take place in a future sci-fi disaster world that has been overrun by giant plants.

Blue Gender

Blue Gender

In the early 21st century, the emergence of an incurable condition known as B-cell growth led some of the affected to become "Sleepers" - people put under stasis until a cure could be found. Yuji Kaido is one such Sleeper who awakens, several decades later, to a horrifying new reality. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating everything - and everyone - in sight. Now, all Yuji can do is escape from the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, and make their way towards Second Earth: mankind's new home in space.

Ran Ran says...

Both series deal with the survival of people on planet earth, after it has been taken over by wild plants and animals. In both cases, although under different circumstances, the main characters try to escape from the planet and the way they organize their survival is a central part of the plot. Blue gender is a bit more mature than Jyu Oh Sei, but if you liked one, it's likely you'll like the other as well.

henki8 henki8 says...

Both shows deal about the surviving of the fittest. In both animes the earth has been taken over by deadly plants and huge animals that is hard to kill and even harder to escape. Both main character and some of their friends try to escape from the infested earth to a new home wolrd, thought under different circumstances. Lots of characters die and only a few manage to escape. Anyway, if you like one you'll love the other as well.

Legend of Basara

Legend of Basara

In ancient medieval Japan, the people are oppressed by a brutal emperor and his four children, with no hope for the future… until the prophet Nagi proclaimed that a child born on a day would be their savior. Twins were born that day, a boy, Tatara, raised from birth to be Japan’s savior, and a girl, Sarasa. This is her story: a story of great personal loss, tragic romance, and a resilient unbreakable will.

Both series focus heavily on "Surviving in hard times". Both anime empasize on the importance of bringing down sectionalism and creating a better world for people to live in.

Kiyohime Kiyohime says...

Just like Wolf's Rain, Jyu Oh Sei has an 'end of the world, only the strongest will last' theme. Both implore military themes that are the main cause of the world ending. In both animes their are characters that fight, kill, and chase after a seemingly impossible dream to live in a world that does not exist.

Kinnara Kinnara says...

Firstly, the almost identical feel WR and JOS give out simply cannot be ignored. To pinpoint some similarities, the leads of both are people living on a totally different level from those apparently similar characters surrounding them. The setting is slightly apocalyptic with a high danger level and mortality rate, absolute goals and a touch of feelings.

Toward the Terra TV

Toward the Terra TV

Centuries ago, humanity carelessly ravaged the Earth’s environment, forcing them to leave and form a colony elsewhere. To prevent the same mistakes from happening again, they allow a supercomputer to run their lives. Children are genetically engineered and at the age of fourteen take ‘adulthood exams’, a process whereby the supercomputer ensures they are suitable for membership in this perfect society. Those who pass have their memories erased and are guided into the next stage of their life; those who fail are immediately destroyed. Jomy is a boy about to take his adulthood exams, but things go terribly wrong when a man wreathed in light interrupts the process. He is a Mu -- an aberration, a new generation of human with extraordinary powers usually detected and eliminated by the supercomputer. This man tells Jomy he too is a Mu and introduces him to the Mu society. They are a rebel group in hiding from the oppressive human regime, who live in the hope that they will find a life of peace on Earth some day. Can Jomy leave behind all that he has known, come to terms with his awakening powers, and help the Mu return to their beloved Terra?

Both are sci-fi anime that focus on a powerful young man finding his old life torn away from him as he is thrown into a new life where he much lead a following of people to find peace.

yamirakuen yamirakuen says...

1. The graphics are SO similar I immediately thought of Toward the Terra while watching Jyu Oh Sei. The genre is also sci-fi, where humans are inhabiting non-Earth planets. Furthermore, almost all human beings in both anime were made artificially (i.e., test-tube babies).

2. The setting is a dystopian future where the main character (Jomy from Toward the Terra and Thor from Jyu Oh Sei), as a child, had to abandon everything he knows and fight to survive. 

3. The dream of the main characters in both anime is similar: to find out the truth and to return to Earth. This applies especially for Jomy from Toward the Terra and Third from Jyu Oh Sei.

Fate/stay night

Fate/stay night

The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?

Both Jyu Oh Sei and FSN are fantasy series with some action mixed in. The characters proceed to grow, although seem to have set archetype roles. There are several other small thematic commonalities between these two; if you liked one, you'd like the other.

Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle: Tokyo Revelations

Let's see. Tokyo Revelations and Jyu Oh Sei are about kids stranded in an area of limited resources. They are about Darwinian's "survival of the fittest". You'll also see some competition between groups within their worlds, along with plenty of action! I really like the ending songs to both Jyu Oh Sei and Tokyo Revelations, as well. They are two short series, but both have great trials.

Freedom

Freedom

It is the year 2267, and all that is left of humanity now lives in the 'Eden colony', a domed metropolis on the moon. Earth has long since been abandoned after a cataclysm left it uninhabitable... or so the inhabitants of Eden are led to believe. But when a young boy named Takeru discovers a photograph of a girl which appears to have been taken on Earth, he begins to doubt that this is the case. With the help of his friends, Takeru decides to visit Earth in search of the girl; despite the fact that it is against the strict laws of the colony and despite not knowing what awaits him there...

Merryberry Merryberry says...

Both series for starters explore a world where the possibility of returning to Earth is the hope for those who live in the age. While in Freedom, the main focus is the discovery of the reasoning behind the secrecy of the state of Earth, Jyu oh Sei, instead draws the path to another planet which is kept secret from the main character. The exploration and mystery surrounding the hiding of these information ultimately make each series ideal for watching with each other.

Twins? Sci Fi?  Yes.

If your a fan of a set of twin boys being sent from a life in space to a planet full of challenges, this is the title for you.

Both have a good amount of action, and a lot of exploration of the planets in which they are sent.
