Synopsis

Thor and his twin brother, Rai, are cast off to a forsaken planet by unknown masked men after witnessing the suspicious death of their parents. Given only a beam knife and a smelly satchel, they wander together in search of civilization on the primarily plant based world. They soon discover the plants have the advantage. Only the strong survive; the ones who throw away their humanity and become the beasts humans once were.

Not very well known or popular, Jyu Oh Sei is a hidden gem. A relatively short anime, this series went way beyond my expectations in nearly all respects.

Story

Jyu Oh Sei dispels the myth that a series has to be long in order to be good. It's only 11 episodes but the plot moves very fast and a lot of stuff happens at a good pace.

The story starts off with two twin brothers barely into their teens abandoned on a prison planet after their parents are killed. It begins as a "survival tale" with Thor, the elder brother, being the protagonist, and swiftly transitions into read more

Jyu Oh Sei has stupid names for characters like Thor, Odin, and Zagi of Iliad, but if you can get past that ridiculous attempt at symbolism, and other miscellaneous missteps, you'll hopefully find yourself entertained by this fast paced epic adventure.

On a colony planet far from Earth, two brothers stumble upon their murdered parents and are knocked out by gas. They wake up on a planet loaned from whoever built the sets for King Kong and Little Shop Of Horrors. That's right; the jungle tries to kill you every five minutes!

Who killed their parents? Why were they sent to a cruel planet read more

Jyo Oh Sei is a good (maybe even great) 29 episode show squeezed into 11 episodes. The result isn't pretty.

The foundation of the plot is a big 'ole mess of second rate science fiction concepts, including The Plant Planet, The Prison Planet, The War Between the Sexes, and others that it would be spoilerish of me to reveal. Seriously, this story kept reminding me of the Golden Age SciFi I've read. The difference is, those stories (well, the good ones anyways) fully explored their concepts and were able make interesting situations out of them. And perhaps the Jyu-Oh-Sei manga manages to read more

PROPER MINDSET
Planet of the Beast King could have made a great sci-fi / action / mystery / survival anime but because of bad storytelling it ends up being nothing but a superficial shojo romance for fangirls. Do not make the mistake of expecting action or adventure while starting this anime. The story begins with a pair of twins living in a high-tech colony, having their parents murdered and themselves thrown on a savage planet where they must survive on their own. This is an instant hook with most viewers who would of course expect an epic adventure. The setting may support the genres but, read more

Plot wise (esp sci-fi elements), these two shows are somewhat similar: both shows start with main character wakes up in a vastly different and dangerous environment than the place they used to live. Through the course, they gradually adapts to it and learns the skills to live. Later, some organizations revealed that both main characters have the special ability that they need for mankind to survive the future. In the end, those shady organizations got out of control and destroyed by their own creation, the main characters end up living in the planet they adapt to.

Both speaks about a young boy accused of murder which it didn't make. He's send in a prison where there's many deaths. There's allies which become traitors but there's only one girl who will make all for him. Really much of similarities, but these two animes are just excellent ;)

Anime: Giniro no Kami no Agito
Both are about a world where man must fight against the sentient Earth and plant-life for survival. Both spend most focus in the wilds and a medieval-like setting, but occasionally break away to show brief moments of highly futuristic technology as well. And finally, both feature a main character with a mop of hair as white as the snow. 
reportRecommended by Rakuenless
Anime: No.6
Both have sci-fi and a sort of futuristic feeling. Both involve as main protagonists, a lively girl who loves the main protagonist (a white haired boy) and that boy makes a sort of "best friend" where they are always together, and the three of them try to find out the truth behind the mysteries involving their home planet/city.

Both are survival, action anime where:

Shingeki no Kyojin - Titans vs. Humans
Jyu Oh Sei - Plants vs. Humans

And they take place in different worlds.
