Ever notice that when your wisked into an alternate world everyone is after you for your special "abilities"?

Ok, maybe you don't, but the protagonists in both of these titles do!

Both have the main star,  sent to another alternate world in which epic struggle is happening. 

It also helps that both titles involve some unorthodox mecha designs. 

Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures

Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures

Kazuki Yotsuga is able to see things that others can't; in his visions, giant robots battle it out in the streets, causing massive damage in their wake. Though his visions have made him an outcast from the rest of his peers, they have attracted the attention of Ken Sanada – a physicist who believes Kazuki’s visions are a gateway into a parallel world! He places Kazuki into one of his inventions and accidentally sends him to the parallel world in his visions, where he finds himself in the middle of a war for control of the world! Kazuki must now become a pilot of one of the robots in order to join the fight for peace, all the while trying to find his way back to his own world…

Let's see here. Similarities of the titles...

We are in an alternate world - Check

Got a war going on and our protagonist is right in the middle - Check

Did we mention the main guy has to pilot a robot yet?  OK, then Check.  

Seriously, if your looking for a similar title you could not go wrong with Orguss, if you saw Dual, or Dual if you Saw Orguss.  Orguss is just a little older in animation.

Macross and Orguss share virtually the same key staff, from director, to character and mechanical designers, to composer, to writers, etc. And above all they have a similar vibe with some serious drama here and there tossed in with a little fun comedy at times, and you'd almost believe they're set in the same universe. All in all Orguss feels like it makes a better unofficial sequel to Macross than any of the official sequels Macross ever got.

Aura Battler Dunbine

Aura Battler Dunbine

Sho Zama, an up and coming motorcycle racer, has been whisked away to the world between shore and sea, Byston Well. The world of Byston Well closely resembles medieval Europe with one exception: it contains giant robots called aura battlers. Brought to this world by the power hungry Drake Luft because he possesses the rare gift of aura, Sho is forced to fight in a war between two warring nations as an aura battler pilot. Can Sho find a way home, and what of the continually-expanding conflict?

Drahken Drahken says...

Both shows feature two guys from the outside world getting pulled into an alternate dimension, where they wind up piloting mecha on opposing sides of some local war. The featured hero in each tale joins up with a small group of fighters with a small transport craft and helps defend them against the attacks of their much more numerous foes. (Which is only fair, since the attackers are at least as interested in the hero as they are in the group he's with in each show.)

Anyone who watches both of these series will definitely start feeling deja vu.

Sentou Mecha Xabungle

Sentou Mecha Xabungle

On the planet Zora, there are two societies: the Innocent and the Civilians. Jiron Amos seeks revenge against the outlaw who killed his parents, but in a world where Civilian crimes are forgiven if they're not brought to justice within three days, there's little he can do. Taking his revenge into his own hands, Jiron steals the mecha Xabungle and teams up with a group of bandits, the Sandrats. As his quest continues, Jiron's actions sow the seeds of rebellion against the Innocent.

Drahken Drahken says...

Both of these series revolve around a guy who pilots a fighting mech unusually well and joins up with a caravan of people, acting like their knight or bodyguard. The protagonist in each story doesn't fit in well with most of the caravan, seeming more barbaric than the rest of the group, and seems to stick with them primary because he doesn't have anyplace better to go. These two shows really fell quite a bit alike, aside from the fact that Xabungle takes a more humorous approach vs Orguss's notably darker tone.

What happens to many of the pilots a month after the war and what path do they choose to follow in the aftermath of the epic war?

Super Robot Wars OG: Divine Wars

Super Robot Wars OG: Divine Wars

Two centuries have passed since man began colonizing space. The Earth Federation, which governs the human race, has known of the existence of hostile aliens for the past seven years and has been preparing for an invasion. However, while they see military force as the answer, others would rather surrender to the aliens in exchange for their lives. Taking advantage of the confusion, an organization called the Divine Crusaders declares the Earth Federation unfit to protect the planet and plunges humanity into a bloody civil war. Now only a small band of heroes - pilots of experimental super robots - can save the day. Pressured by a desperate Earth Federation government and faced with conflict on all sides, can this mottled group of individuals find the courage to not only end the civil war, but to also defend all of humanity?

They are told that there were signs of a large-scale deployment near the Empire-Federation border. Faced with the prospect of a new major enemy, the desperate Empire fans the flame of war. Meanwhile, an international volunteer army spearheaded by the Commonwealth set foot in Federation territory. As they say, the enemy of an enemy is your friend.

The Japanese Defense Force take action against these monsters and push them back into the "Gate". Third Reconnaissance Team is dispatched to the "Special Region" lead by officer (and otaku) Youji Itami. On their travels, they are joined by a beautiful elf girl who is a survivor from the dragon's rampage and guide the group across the dangerous new world.
