Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

There is actually a specific part in Kuromukuro that reminds me a lot of Eden. The two animes are quite different, however the lead male character in each seems similar to me. Both are in a strange world. In Eden, it's because he lost his memories so the current modern world is strange to him. In Kuromukuro, he was asleep for many years and suddenly wakes up in the present modern world. Both characters have some what similar personalities. Both animes present the person in a strange world theme similarly as well. I think they are a good match.

Guy and girl are separated for reasons out of eithers control

If these sound like your kind of story then give both of these a try.

If that’s not enough the main male characters in Kuromukuro & Eden of the East both use nicknames. They have strong opinions about using their power for protection. People who appear useless [NEETS and friends/enemies{frenemies}] are not left to die. Abandoning people either because they’re NEETs or because they’ve wronged you in the past is not something the male leads condone. They will help those by any means they possess. Fame and fortune are not their objectives, they are who they need to be.

This opinion is shared with and/or embraced by other characters as the series’ progress.

Minor/secondary characters in both are addicted to technology.

An animal companion is also present in both series [dog in Eden of the East and a ferret in Kuromukuro] who aids the characters in their respective series. They aren’t just there to be cute, though their physical appeal is not to be underestimated.

The whole story can’t be captured on film. You've got to look for the meaning behind every action.

Dimension W

Dimension W

In the year 2071, the world's energy problems seem solved by a network of cross-dimensional electric-field inductors- "coils" -that extract energy from a seemingly infinite source. That source is the W dimension, a fourth plane that exists beyond the X, Y, and Z dimensions. In this world, unofficial "illegal" coils harness powers that the police can't hope to counter. Dealing with these coils is the job of coil-hating repo man Kyoma, whose run-in with the unique coil android Mira leads the two to form a reluctant partnership.

This may be an odd pairing, but I do think these animes have their similarities. The main male character in both somewhat refuses the present time. In Dimension, he prefers to live the way people did before the coils became a part of nearly every aspect of life. In Kuromukuro, he actually is from the past and has a hard time accepting the present. It's not exactly the same, but it does seem similar. The artwork feels similar to. Also, the main male character is paired with a rather unlikely main female character which creates a bit of a rocky atmosphere.

If you like mechs, action, and aliens this is a great watch. You'll be at the end of your seats begging for more by the times it's over. Good action sequences and some good "who done it" type scenarios.

Both both are anime and both seem like high quality. They both have their quirks and other things which may seem meh but otherwise it seems like a excellent opportunity for anime to watch.

Re:Creators

People have created many stories. Joy, sadness, anger, deep emotion.Stories stir up emotion and captivate. However, those emotions are nothing more than the feelings of a spectator. What if the characters in the stories had their own will. In their eyes, are we, the creators of the stories, like gods? Revolution for our world.Punishment for the land of the gods. Re:CREATORS.
