Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
add
Both have scenarios where a relatively geeky person (or so it'd seem) from our world suddenly has to deal with another fantasy world. Both main characters are OP. The series each contain a lot less violence and a lot more to do with politics than one would expect. Both are worth watching for people who wish to be whisked away to a world that combines two and imagining what would happen to us if we were there!

The main character is introduced to a situation and setting in which everyone is in danger of dying by otherworldly means, and has to try to escape from the situation. In order to achieve this, they must figure out a) what the fuck is going on and b) who is behind it all. Both animes start with a large group of characters but by the end most have been thinned out and few survive. Another's ending and answer to the mystery is pretty conclusive... but King of Thorn just leaves you with more unanswered questions.

Mobile Suit Gundam
add
Anno has stated on several occasions that Mobile Suit Gundam was one of the main influences on Evangelion. Both were ahead of their time and set a standard for future mecha in their respective eras, Gundam with a more realistic take on warfare rather than super robots, and Evangelion with more character focused drama.

Both main characters are one of the few remaining people who can pilot said series' mech, but are young and not mentally prepared for war and death, so they go through a struggle of handling it psychologically.

Anime: Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster

Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster
add
Nadesico is often viewed as a 'response' to Evangelion, but it can also be linked to other Gainax productions as well, especially Gunbuster and even Otaku no Video (Gainax productions have a lot of common threads). In the case of Gunbuster and Nadesico, both are most similar in their tonality, which can lurch back and forth between zany comedy to stark moments of pathos and loss. In addition, both build upon well worn tropes in the sci-fi/mecha genre and update them with self-awareness. Each protagonist, Akito and Noriko, are anime fans who find themselves embroiled in the 'real-life' versions of their fantasies to do battle against an overwhelming and faceless enemy and must reconcile the disparity.

The primary characters are perfect replicas of each other. Without further ado we can deduce that Miss Monochrome and Drossel von Flügel are in fact androids with an obsession towards black and white color theme. Their AI as well is expanded upon learning more and more about humans whether it is done through direct interaction with them, as seen through the struggles of Monochrome trying to become an idol, or trivia given by their closest friend, robot Ruu-chan in Monochrome's case and Gedächtnis for Drossel. Because they are both short and episodic in content, don't expect much

When it comes to competition.

Anime: Iria: Zeiram The Animation

Iria: Zeiram The Animation
add
Like Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop shares some similarities with Iria, in that it is set in world with multiple settled planets, each with their own customs, and where space travel between them is cheap and common. Kind of a cyber-punky world. Where they differ, is that Iria and Outlaw Star, definitely have a more "far out" feel in that they seem very removed from our own world, like far future, or another galaxy. Cowboy Bebop on the other hand, clearly takes place in the future of our own present world, and includes references to the Earth, and so has some elements that tie it in with our own timeline. Cowboy Bebop is a story set in our own future, whereas Outlaw Star and Iria are much more abstract, especially Iria. However, they still share some similarities. And if you liked one, you may like the other.

One interesting similarity is that both Iria and Spike and Jet are bounty hunters. Wheras in Iria that's something of a side story, as her main priority is finding out what happened with her brother, in Cowboy Bebop it's more front and center as it's how they get paid. But both stories have many similarities both in worlds and in that the main characters are bounty hunters.

Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä
add
One of the main things that these two anime share, is very unique set designs. Both Nausicaa and Iria: Zeiram, feature some of the most unique set designs ever featured in anime. Many anime feature run of the mill buildings, or worlds that seem very similar to our own, but the toxic forest in Nausicaa and just the general world entirely in Iria, are very interesting visually. If you like anime with very unique set designs and world designs you will probably like both of these. They also share a main character of a girl who in many respects are similar in their feel. Nausicaa is more in tune with animals and nature, and is focused on her projects. Iria, is more sporty and care-free and devoted to her brother. But they both are about a story of girls who must find their own way in some aspects, though Iria is more on her own.

Iria: Zeiram The Animation
add
These anime are very similar, especially in their world aspects. Both feature a universe where there are multiple settled planets, each with their own unique customs and technology. Both feature very diverse and unique props, vehicles, and cultural designs. You will see props being used in these anime that are very unique. You could almost think that they are different stories about different people in the same world, though they have a slightly different feel. Iria is about a girl searching for answers about her brother who has disappeared, and her interactions with a strange creature that seems to have some political aspects surrounding it that are more than meets the eye. Outlaw Star is about a captain of a special ship he has acquired, (and his friends and crew) that are dealing with searching for something called the Galactic Ley Line, and having to dodge shady crime syndicate people who want his ship while searching for his goal. One of the things that makes these anime similar also, is that Gene Starwind and Iria are similar characters in some respects. For example, whenever they get into a pinch, they both use a lot of interesting gadgets to get out of it. However Outlaw Star is more of a team effort sometimes, and Iria goes it alone mostly, they're still very interesting characters in similarity. Gene is more of a grumpy hot head, and Iria is more of a sporty girl with a motherly side who is devoted to her brother, but especially in terms of their gadgets and such, there's a lot of similarity.

Both anime are very similar in some aspects. If you like one you would probably like the other.

Green Legend Ran
add
These anime are very similar in many aspects. Both feature a post-apocalyptic world featuring a boy and girl main character. Both feature the boy having to protect the the girl from some danger and politics. Both feature serious elements as well as lighthearted elements at times. Conan is done by Hayao Miyazaki, and so features a lighter tone that it wraps it's more serious elements up in. Green Legend Ran is a bit more serious and features some graphic violence, romantic themes, and even some downright pervyness at times, so is more "grown up" in it's feel. But both are very similar in many ways. Green Legend Ran has a kind of "Final Fantasy 7" sort of feel to some aspects of it's story. Both are also classic anime, and definitely worth checking out.

While the manga of JoJo is seen as one of the forefathers of standard battle manga/anime, Ushio to Tora's manga is seen as one of the forefathers of youkai battle manga/anime.

Both of these anime have an old-school feel to them and are re-adaptations of manga that got sub-par OVAs years ago. Also, they both have great action scenes and can get a bit brutal at times (JoJo especially).

Both anime should be watched before other mainstream shounen because they have influenced those mainstream shounen. At least, that's what I think.

Both anime feature children who have to survive in a world with adult themes going on and politics. Both involve character development over a period of time. Both involve very good people behind the anime. In the case of Kemono no Souja Erin, masterful writer Uehashi Nahoko who also wrote Moribito, is behind the story, in the case of Mirai Shounen Conan, master director Hayao Miyazaki is the director of the series. Both have very good stories involving children who must come to terms with adult realities in their worlds while not loosing heart and keeping a sense of lighheartedness in the face of aversion.

Both are comedies with a focus on parody, and they are also hilarious. Binbougami focuses more on supernatural stuff, while Nozaki-kun is about shoujo manga. Also, Binbougami has a lot more reference-based humour, whereas Nozaki-kun parodies classic anime and manga tropes.

If you thought either of these two anime were funny, you'll probably enjoy the other just as much.

If you want to have the 'true' FMA experience, you should watch the 2003 version first, then Brotherhood.

FMA 2003 does the first part of the story way better than Brotherhood, adapting all the chapters that Brotherhood skips. Meanwhile, Brotherhood follows the rest of the manga almost flawlessly, whereas FMA 2003 had an anime-original ending.

- Both Dante from Devil May Cry and Inuyasha are half human, half demon that are sword wielders
- Both Dante and Inuyasha carry their father's sword that are legendary and incredibly powerful.
- Both of their mothers were beautiful human women who died when they were young
- Both have a female partner (Trish in Devil May Cry and Kagome in Inuyasha)
- Both are action-packed anime with demons and characters with unique powers

Difference between the two is that fighting styles are very different and are set in a different time eras (Devil May Cry set in a modern time era while Inuyasha is set in feudal Japan). Devil May Cry is more darker and violent compare to Inuyasha and has way less episodes. However if you like Inuyasha, you will probably enjoy Devil May Cry.

- Quirky, cool, and anachronistic music.
- Great action sequences; fights in the case of Samurai Champloo and the magical realism elements in Miss Hokusai.
- Setting in both series are very similar (Edo-era Japan/alternate universe Edo Japan).
- Miss Hokusai is closely based on real events and people, whereas Samurai Champloo only references certain real events and people in a fictionalised context.

The big difference between the two is that Samurai Champloo is an action-based anime with a major plotline, and Miss Hokusai is a collection of stories from the lives of the featured artists jigsawed together into a biopic.

Sword Art Online and Gakusen Toshi Asterisk are both awful A-1 Pictures light novel adapations full of action, romance and the worst handling of fanservice I've ever seen.

They both contain:
- A harem
- Generic characters
- An overwhelming amount of anime chlichés
- The same character designs as every single A-1 Pictures show out there
- Filler episodes
- Holograms flying everywhere, except it's acceptable in SAO because they're inside of a video game

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk is basically a even worse version of Sword Art Online in a high school.
