In both series, we follow a girl excited to be beginning life in space aboard a space station, as she develop her space skills from novice levels, helps the people of Earth and space, and finds drama and romance.

Both are space related with a few romances here and there. Mechs are another similarity and there is a vast exploration of planets and locations out there. Difference is one is a series and the other is a H-series, 'Vandread' actually focus on romantic scenes more often than you think and battles second. 'Uchuu no Stellvia' is a hardcore action H-series that has a bit of everything from tentacles to animals. Fighting is not the main focal point here so anyone who wants to dream of hot ladies will not be disappointed in these two series.

Regular schoolgirls in semi-utopian space colonies - very similar feel.

An ordinary student gets the chance of a lifetime as she embarks on a space adventure. Both series are helmed by the same director and employ similar graphics for its spaceship models.

In both ther are mecha, schoolgirls as main heroes, male characters who are weak in iunderstanding women, and systems of connecting human mind to computer. Stellvia is more shoujo though

Both were created by the same person, and make use of the same humor, characterization, and treat the genre of sci-fi rather differently from it's anime peers. Both are largely kids' series, as the plots, and pacing are rather slow and inviting. Also, both plots do tend to get muddled with excessive elements and twists making their characters and messages convoluted to the point where the enjoyment factor gets seriously dragged down. Very safe shows all in all, but they wear themselves out.

Neither Stellvia nor Classroom☆Crisis begins its story with a clear view of the main conflict of the plot, yet both series use strong character development to slowly build a compelling drama. The futuristic classroom setting of both series also allows for a fair amount of slice-of-life episodes, allowing for a controlled pacing of the story rather than plunging straight into overly dramatic scenarios.

Similarities : The shows are identical, despite the fantasy x sci-fi difference - underdog main girl protagonist that improves as the plot goes on - dreams, friendship and self development as main themes - fantasy high school setting that is separate from "our world" - variety of characters making the main cast of characters - chill and comfy feel yet the show touches serious issues Differences: - Stellvia is set in sci-fi/space - Stellvia has drama elements unlike LWA - Stellvia has more and better developed cast of male characters - Stellvia has romance - Stellvia has better pacing and world development - Stellvia has outdated yet beautiful animation of technology and mechas - Stellvia gets more  read more

They are both about cute young girls who have to go away to help save people. In both the young girls grow as people throughout the series... Yet still maintain the characteristics that make them so cute and lovable.

Both series are about girls who pilot various vehicles that use some sort of modification to fly (Gravity mod in Stellvia, Time/Space mod in Simoun). Both have heavy use of integrated CGI. Both have similar music. Both have a romance subplot.

Tokyo Space School and Stellvia foundation share an identical goal: to forge a generation who could find herself a way to the stars and open a new era for the humankind. Taking journey looking for different answers, characters fortify friendship on their respective path to adulthood beyond competition and individualism.

Stellvia represents another solar system wide destructive event, and another group of girls and boys are asked to defend their lives in a never declared war against unknown enemies. Both are set on a peaceful Space Academy, quickly transformed forcedly into a military outpost. Other similarities follows: an hidden and powerful secret weapon driven by students, background political intrigues, and the continuous fluctuation from individual competition to group cooperation strengthened by critical times.

just reading the plot stratos seem verry similer to stellvia since there are boys and girls tring to protect a major distater for destroying the earth and a girls is the main character. alhough stellvia is based is space and only one or two episodes are on earth stratos 4 seems to be bases majorly on earth by the way i am just about to start watching stratos 4 and this recomadation is based on the plot that i have read which has instantly reminded me of stellvia.

Both anime are produced by the same studio with stories that explore the challenges humanity faces when it realizes how dangerous space can be despite the ambitions.
