Synopsis

In an underground world where tunnels extend everywhere, even though they live in dark and confined spaces, people wear protective clothes and lead quiet and enjoyable lives. Patema, a princess in her underground village, loves to explore the tunnels. Her favorite place is a "danger zone" that her village prohibits people from entering. Even though she's scolded, Patema's curiosity can't be held back. No one ever explained what the supposed danger was. On her usual trip to the "danger zone," Patema faces unexpected events. When hidden secrets come to light, the story begins to unfold.

"Sakasama no Patema" is a gripping WWII drama set in 1944 Nazi Germany, detailing the struggles of a young German boy, Age (Eiji), hiding his Jewish friend, Patema, after the government declares that all people of Jewish descent must be "taken care of." Together, they traverse war-torn Germany to bring Patema home and along the way discover the truth of the government's persecution.

No, not really. That plot synopsis is pretty close though.

After falling into a pit that her village declared a danger zone, young Patema is plunged into a bizarre new world where everything is inverted. Suddenly, literally falling into the endless sky read more

Every day, in discussions about any subject: “I don't see how they can believe that.” “I don't know why they think like that.” Perspectives that don't mesh with our own are often cast aside, and some choose to build a comfortable nest of their own ideas without realizing that other viewpoints could be equally valid. Entire lives are lived in this fashion. And, yet, the ability to see through the eyes of another is dear to us as human beings, intellectually and emotionally invaluable. Case in point: Age finds Patema clinging to a length of wire, her feet pointed up towards the sky, utterly upside read more

Whether the medium is anime, books, food or clothes - originality has always been a difficult thing to achieve. As the years go by, more unique materials are used and it becomes even harder to find what's 'truly original'. What you'll get are constant situations of "... hey doesn't this remind you of THAT film?" Luckily, there's very few settings, if any, similar to 'Sakasama no Patema (Patema Inverted)' - it's a breath of fresh air and definitely something that's 'original'.

In a world where gravity has changed, the lives of a young girl named Patema and a young boy called Age (Eiji) are explored - read more

Sakasama no Patema or otherwise known in English as Patema Inverted follows a simple yet endearing and thrilling tale that 2 teenagers of different worlds partake.

The story:8.4
The story was certainly interesting and captivating. The contrasts between the two worlds and their differing yet converging societies allows for the audience to be absorbed into the world. The truth isn't white and black or wrong and right, instead it's more of how we view and value the world in Patema Inverted. The ending feels conclusive yet there just needed to be a bit more to make the story float(see what I did there?). read more

Sakasama no Patema is basically a longer, more detailed Pale Cocoon with more action and a happier ending. Pale Cocoon, on the other hand, makes more sense scientifically and has the better song.
A boy discovers a floating girl who has a pendant.
in Patema: the girl floats up in the sky
in Laputa: the girl floats down from the sky
Directed by the same guy. Both are set in futuristic Sci-Fi settings dealing with What-If scenarios. Eve no Jikan deals with how you define being human, in regards to robots, while Sakasama no Patema looks at a scenario where there are two types of people that are affected by gravity differently and how they interact with each other. Both take a deeper look at how people "work" and interact with others. Neither should be missed!
Both represent a dystopia genre. There are two societies within each anime with strict rules which every citizen should obey. But they weren't here from the beginning, they occures as a result of some sort a disaster. The information about those disasters and the worlds' structures themselves is strictly classified, and main characters, who knows nothing at the beginning, step by step reveal all the truth. Both general story lines begin when member of one society get in contact with member of another, which is primarily a taboo, even though in Shinsekai Yori one society dominates on another. Both stories are developing as those societies come into a conflict. And both final plot twists are rather similar too. I bet if you enjoyed one show you will enjoy the other as much!
This recommendation may belong to every Miyazaki's film, because of pretty same characters design and story narration. At the same time I would reccomend Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995), because of the equally drawn post-apocalyptic worlds.
Same beautiful artwork, amazing setting and delicious scenery. Both have simplistic and overall basic plots. Both focus on some serious topic (war/prejudice). Both have romance between the main characters. Both are happy feel good anime.
