A strong and positive depiction of nature and it's role in society. In both series the main characters fight a mysterious evil that more or less conveys similarities with corruption and taint.

Basically they seem to be a huge wake-up call for environmental pollution, although their approach is different.

Both animes tell the story of strong girls trying to understand their own purpose in the related nature - living beings. *Earth's day approved*

Both Arjuna and Pom Poko have strong morales about the enviroment . Arjuna is more about farming and plants and what's safe to eat (the answer to that last one being nothing by the way) while Pom Poko is about how we shouldn't build on homeland of animals. Arjuna is also way more preachy while Pom Poko's morale is part of the story naturally and thus seems better. Arjuna also has more action, but they both have great animation and music.

Saving the world from destruction.
Main character just a normal girl except, has the power needed to save the world.

Two similar yet very different anime who are heavily influenced by hindu mythology. I have to say i consider Arjuna to be way better as it also tackles the ecological issues of our modern day society. Shurato is VERY dated. Anyway, watch out for several remakes coming out in 2015 and 2016!

Both of these anime share the same music author, Yoko Kanno (in Earth Maiden Arjuna she uses the Alias of Gabriela Robin) and their openings are song by the beautiful voice of Maaya Sakamoto (she also is the leading role in Vision of Escaflowne), both animes also have a God or powerful spirit in the form of a mecha (Ashra and Escaflowne respectively) and their characters go into a coming to age style of development.

You may think what the heck how are they alike? Well, the premise pretty much echos one another. They both include the uncommon theme of older girls with magical powers, and both main characters end up vowing to 'use Earth sympathy powers to save everyone' no matter how touching, preachy, or cheesy you may think that is. Your mileage may vary with both shows if the Earth sympathy type of awakening thing bugs the crap out of you or you get irritated anybody should even suggest that you should become more like I don't know...(the Amish, Saints, or Indians) or god forbid, that  read more

The idea that technology has doomed mankind's future by not respecting nature is approached in both animes. In Arjuna, polution, a by-product of our advancements in tech, is damaging earth, hence, it is up to Juna to heal the planet. Meanwhile, in blue sub. someone tries to protect the environment by eliminating mankind.

They show differents approaches on how to tackle the overexploration of resources, and lack of respect we have by our planet.

Both anime's contain unnatural powers and fights. Also characters from both this anime's want to protect earth environment.

Supernatural + earth ecology + a spot of romance are to be found in both

Arjuna has a drama tone and Moyashimon a comedy tone. Both put emphasis on alternative practices and have an educated view on bacteria and nature. basically if you liked moyashimon and you re receptive to ecological messages, then you want to watch arjuna. on the other hand if you liked arjuna then you want to watch moyashimon because its pretty much the only anime that comes close to it.

At a first glance, but the main characters' glowy transformation from Earth Maiden seemed similar.
