Both Anime are sci-fi where the girls can kick butt and be something more then just your stereotypical girls. There is a use of bright colors and a wide cast of characters.

Girls operating robots to save the world from space invaders. Both have a bright feel to them with lead characters who are very eager to help people without care for their own safety.

Crazy over-the-top action and heavy themes of friendship and hope.

• The robot needs someones 'soul' to control and power it. • They both are comedy's. • Sort-of got the same feeling watching them • Good design and animation of the robots :3

Both have mecha and scifi genre. Both main characters have encountered thier mechs before and suddenly found themselves operating it as well. Both main characters suddenly found themselves held up by some mysterious organization that protects mankind against evil space invaiders, they also found themselves drafted into the said organization as well. Both main characters are simple people enjoying simple lives before getting into some sticky situation. Both have mechas who are are in groups of 3. Dissimilarities: One has an extra shoujo genre while the other has romance and super power as it's extra genre. The main character in RNL is an ordinary atlectic girl, while in AE it  read more

Both have girls fighting with machines, both main girls are lively and really enthusiastic. 
report Recommended by Sheiya
The characters in the show operate their machines based on a persons emotional state of mind. There is also something that they are trying to fight for and plenty of angst.

Both Rinne no Lagrange and Aldnoah.Zero deal with mech, politics from other planets, and beautiful animation. A.Z is a little more CGI when dealing with mech, but that doesn't stop it being visually stunning. The music is also amazing, like RnL.

Both anime have girls fighting an other worldly enemy, pastel pallet of animation, psychological/tragedy aspect, and a club dedicated to helping other people that the main cast are members of. Both Rinne and Yuuki Yuuna have a strong theme of helping people by being heroic and having a strong sense of courage.  
report Recommended by Balut
In both series, there is an idealistic young female protagonist who always tries to do what she believes is right, often with no regard to the consequences. Both anime feature a school organization that goes around helping people with whatever they need. Both have some ecchi elements, although it's much lighter in Rinne than in Medaka Box. Finally, both series have supernatural themes, though it very dfferent ways with Rinne being sci-fi and Medaka being some sort of magic.

report Recommended by FilthyCrown
in both anime its the fun (mis)adventures of a group of cute girls who want to kiss eachother and i think the mysterious powers of midori (cute robot nickname) are similar to big rock-sama's because they are both magical and unpredictable and cause wacky things to happen also they want to kiss eachother

Similarity : + All main mecha pilot is womans + War between two sides De Metrio Empire vs Le Garite Empire (Rinne no Lagrange) Norma vs DRAGONs & Human-Mana Empire (Cross Ange) + Similar character, for example : Embyro (Cross Ange) & Lizamarie De Roschefall (Rinne no Lagrange) is THE CREATOR. I say "THE CREATOR" because main story/conflict/mecha unit/source power using in Rinne no Lagrange & Cross Ange is created by both them. + Some yuri element can be found in both anime too + Mecha design also similar : Para-mail & Vox is transformable mecha units. Both mecha units have Humanoid mode & Bird-like mode

The main character is dragged into a fight that they formerly had no knowledge. In both cases, these fights involve using robots that were created by and ancient super advanced civilization, and they are the only people capable of using these specific robots.

High school girls piloting dangerous space craft/mecha. The two main characters are quite similar too. 
report Recommended by Komisoft
Both are anime about a musical theme, a lot of cute girls, a rival group of pretty boys, mechs, and war against aliens. Differences: Lagrange has 3 girls and Macross has 5, Lagrange has a female protagonist and Macross has a male protagonist, Macross has pop idols and Lagrange doesn't.

- The Main Teams from both anime consists of people from different background Jersey Club - Different planet & ras Team D - Different status social - Mecha units from both anime have big power but unfortunately in some point that power can making them become anti hero (Team D) or antagonist (Jersey Club) - Transformable mecha units

Madoka, Lan and Muginami in Rinne are similar to Eruna, Seisa, and Otone in Mikagura where friends of MC are constantly picking fights with the other person but somehow find mutual agreement by MC, who happens to always be in a positive mood.

Rinne no Lagrange and Majestic Prince both feature good-hearted misfits that aspire to be heroes with their new found power. They each also have alternative mecha designs that explore limits beyond typical biped mechanics.  
report Recommended by Chaospan
The protagonists of both anime are dragged into a war that didn't involve him/her. Both anime can described as a mecha series that involves royalty, politics, war, and a bit of school life as well.

both about mecha's both about people in war rinne no lagrange is about three girls and also has fighting planets.

Pilots fighting outside of the box in battles instead of just using beam weaponry and machine guns. Both have very original and obscure mecha designs. Both have a relatable main protagonist, a geeky gamer instead of a sporty tomboyish girl.

Similarities: Both have the same sic-fi, mech, action genre. Both involves schools girls piloting mechs. Both involves the earth being invaded by extra terrestrial beings. Dissimilarities: The school girls in the other anime were drafted into service, while in the other anime the schools girls volunteer to be in the service. The mechs in the other anime were extra terrestrial in origin, while in the other anime the mechs were built on earth. There were only 3 mechs involved in the fighting of extraterrestrial invaders, while in the other anime there were a lot involved in the defense of earth. I've dropped the other anime while I'm yet to see  read more

Both are by the same creators and both share the same energy that makes mecha anime enjoyable.

Both SF meccha series are about teenage girls living in the future and fighting using robots as helpers. The main characters of both series are very similar, they have almost identical personalities and similar designs 
report Recommended by SailorKagome
Both have giant robots as background for the plot, both from Production I.G (at least in some part). Both have incredibly beautiful oceans, genki main characters, and some grim parts in plot.

Both series are mecha , and both protagonist are living a normal life until their lives are changed forever. Kyouno Madoka's life as a Jersey Club member changed when an alien named Lan asks her to pilot a robot , Watase Aoba's life turned upside down when a girl from his class saved him from a Valiancer claiming that she is from the future. Coupling in Buddy Complex is somehow kind of similar in Rinne no Lagrange's memoria. Coupling can be done by two pilots that share the same brainwaves and an invisible bond is formed within them while the memoria in Rinne no Lagrange is  read more

All about the mechas! There is also aliens being involved as part of the main plot, and you would find out about how similar the sort of "deculture" for the aliens later in both series. 
report Recommended by GigaSPX
It's mainly about a girl destined to pilot a mecha/robot. Both are great stories, and have great characters. If you liked one, you will like the other, although Jinki is a little confusing by the mid, it will clear out eventually, and you'll be glad you watched it.
