Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?

Both series focus on over-the-top fight sequences and recklessly passionate male protagonists to draw in viewers early in the series and keep a hold of them throughout. What begin as straigtforward quests to achieve a goal, be it reach the surface or find a lost brother quickly expand into something far greater and wider in scope than one could have expected from the beginning.

RG RG says...

Without a doubt, G Gundam and Gurren Lagann are both epic mecha anime. These two series show how the hot-blooded protagonists (Domon and Simon) must draw upon themselves to save the day.

Gurren Lagann and G Gundam similarities:

-characters ride around in mechas and do battle with each other

-both are a rush to watch because there's always something going on and they hardly ever take their foot of the gas

-there are some romantic elements and fan service but G Gundam has less and far between

-teamwork and friendship are some of the key points they both share

-earth is not in a very good state in both animes and you could even argue they're both dying

Overall they're both a couple of classics filled with action, adventure, and all the giant robots with special abilities you can handle. If you like one anime you'll love the other.

G Gundam and TTGL are mecha anime, that much is true. What makes them particularly similar is their absurdity and devotion to fun action instead of complicated or "smart" plot, as well as silly attacks and dumb-looking stuff all around. It's just fun. Fun anime for people that like fun.

Zoids: New Century/Zero

Zoids: New Century/Zero

On the planet Zi, Zoids are no longer used for military combat; instead, they are now being used for sporting events known as Zoid battles. The Zoid Battle Commission oversees these battles, enforces the rules, and declares the winners. In the midst of fierce competitions, one team aspires to rise to the top: the Blitz Team! With the help of Bit Cloud and his Liger Zero, the Blitz Team will compete against not only regular foes, but also the talented Harry Champ and the criminal organization known as the Backdraft Group!

They are both about mechanical fighting machines being used in matches against one another and they both center around a young man with a particularly special or powerful one.

these 2 animes bring a sort of "chosen one" feel to the protagonist's respective mechas. even their most offensive attack are similar. some antagonists are presented in tournament format with very bitter rivalries.

Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo

Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo

Five years ago, Dinosaur Emperor Gore and his Mechasaurus army were vanquished by Getter Robo in a catastrophic battle that wiped out New York City. When the threat of invasion looms again, it’s up to ex-robot pilot Hayato to bring forth a new Getter from the ashes...one powered by plasma and controlled by a new generation of heroes! But even with the skills of wild fighter Go Ichimonji, Neo Getter Robo might not be strong enough. Humankind’s best hope still lies in the resurrection of the most dangerous super robot ever: Shin Getter Robo!

Both G Gundam and Shin Getter Robo vs Neo Getter Robo have ridiculous (-ly awesome) mechas that fight epic battles all while shouting attack names to save the world from a dark force. Both series also feature a mecha horse (!!) and both display countries other than Japan in relatively entertaining ways. Also, the villians in both are pretty crazy; in G Gundam it's an evil Gundam, in Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo, it's dinosaurs who acquired alien technology.

I feel as though G Gundam definitely is the better overall work, mainly because it is long enough to sustain story and gives time for character development, but Shin Getter Robo vs. Neo Getter Robo is an extremely fun and entertaining work coming from the one and only Go Nagai. Give one a shot if you enjoyed the other!

Rascal Rascal says...

Shin Getter Robo vs and Mobile Fighter G Gundam are two of the most epicly dank super robo shows you'll ever lay your comparitively insignificant and unworthy eyes on. The sheer level of masculinity and steelballsery displayed in the characters is very similar, as well as the over-the-top cheesy lines, music, and story that doesn't make sense, but doesn't need to, because all that matters is giant robots kicking the testicles out of other giant robots.

Highschool of the Dead

Highschool of the Dead

When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...

If you love anime that is over the top and uses it to it's fullest advantage then look no further than G Gundam and Highschool of the Dead!  Both of these animes take everything they do the extreme and ridiculous and use it to keep you well entertained throughout the whole series without ever letting you down!

Do you like the worlds countries projected in funny and interesting ways? Look no further than these 2 titles. G Gundam tries to take its self a little seriously and has mecha in it where Hetalia is pure parody and features chibi characters sometimes but both will make you laugh at how countries are represented. Check em out!

IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (2003)

Welcome to the IG-1 Grand Prix, where teams of three fight it out in giant robots for the chance to be declared the greatest IG team ever. Up-and-coming Team Suzuku  hopes to achieve this goal, so when a freak accident occurs, forcing rival Team Velshtein to withdraw, the group finally gets its chance to shine. But with the fierce Team Sledge Mamma as their first opponent, will these strapped-for-funds rookies have what it takes to play with the big boys, or is it all just a pipe dream?

Tournament competition with mecha.

Both of these have it. G Gundam is more about fighting for teritory or rule over all territories, and is 1 mecha vs 1 mecha for much of it, where IGPX is more of a trio of mecha in a team fighting, but you will get the same feel.

Unlike it's sorta sequel: IGPX is not high speed racing. So I see it more in kin to G Gundam. Anyhow, you might like one if you like the other. 

Gundam Build Fighters

Gundam Build Fighters

The time is the near future. Years have passed since the 1980s, when "Gunpla"--plastic models based on the "Mobile Suit Gundam" animation--created a huge boom. Now, a new wave is sweeping the world, in what could be called a second Gunpla boom. Its popularity is driven by "Gunpla Battle," in which assembled Gunpla can be controlled and made to fight. With the introduction of this revolutionary Battle System, its popularity has expanded to the point that a Gunpla Battle World Tournament is held each year.

Both of these are not your average Gundam tale of a giant war, colonies dropping, or a teen stuffed into a mecha to save the day. 

Instead both titles are tournament style gundam shows from different spectrums of the dial. 

If you dug one, try out the other.

If you're looking for the equivalent of Shining Fingers! Then look no further than A Certain Magical Index. Both main characters just have that ability to stick out their right hands and defeat their opponents no matter what the circumstance. Gives me chills just from how spectacular these characters are. You're going to get amazing fights, fun plot twists, and a story just intricate enough to keep all the mayhem together and to keep the viewer watching. If you liked one I'm sure you'll love the other.

If you're a fan of over the top anime and tournaments, both G Gundam and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds are great choices. While one may focus more on giant robots and the other on card games, both carry the central message of moving forward with your spirit and that sometimes facing off and clashing with others can help the two of you understand each other better, and both are tons of fun.

Both of these anime feature mechas that respond to their users' movements, rather than button commands. There's also: floating space land, country-specific mecha, tragic backstory, and each mecha having slightly different powers. The animation might be 20 years different, but they share many similarities in structure.
