Yet another anime I remember watching during my Toonami days. I remember not liking it very much when I was younger, due to the dark plot. But I've recently rewatched it again (years later) and I must say, this was a kickass anime.

I was rewarded with a great plot, jazzy music, excellent animation, and a good moral lesson.

The story itself had a pretty interesting and original twist on the End of the World genre of movies. With the theme's of man vs nature and such (it does this much better then The Happening, but that isn't very hard to do).
I only wish that they'd read more

Title: Blue Submarine No. 6

Manga, Live-Action Movie, Anime: Blue Submarine No. 6 was originally a manga created by Satoru Ozawa. It ran in Shonen Sunday, and stands at three collected volumes. It has yet to be licensed Stateside.

In 2005, a live-action movie was announced by Gonzo studios, with Masahiro Ohkura directing. There's no more info about the movie after this, so your guess is as good as mine as to whether or not it's actually still happening.

Blue Submarine No. 6 is a four episode OVA that was produced by Gonzo (famous for their work on Gankutsuou and Bokurano) and directed by Mahiro read more

Recommendations

Both are produced by Gonzo and have the character design of Range Murata.
Deep, beautiful, mature, and futuristic series of the adventure, action, and sci-fi genre.
Both anime have a specific setting (air in Last Exile, water in Blue Submarine # 6).
Also, in both the main girl is a redhead.
Similarities:

Both involves a situation where mankind is under threat from very strange sea going life forms.

Both have the same battle at sea kind of thing.

Both have the same, sci-fi, action and dystopian genre.

Dissimilarities:

One is a full 12 episode anime while the other is a 4 episode OVA.

The characters in one anime are compose of high school kids, while the other is compose of mostly grown-ups.
