Both are made by Yoshiyuki Tomino and feel like 1980s anime even though they were made in the 2000s. They both have young genius pilot protagonists joining a small group opposing a nation simply because they were at the wrong place at the right time. Both anime also contain some nonsensical plot points which progress the story forward.

Wacky, Wild, Biopunk, futuristic, and mecha. Definitely similar.

From the socially awkward and mildly irritating protagonists to the enigmatic girl with strange hair, these shows appear kinda similar. In terms of tone, both are gently comedic, mostly relying on the interactions between teenagers and authority figures with a background of war.

This again seems a weird recommendation, but there is logic. The shows have a similar sense of gently absurd humour and a social message, as well as some character parallels which are pleasantly amusing.

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.

Gaming nerd boy gets stuck in something bigger, where his gaming skills come in handy.

Wacky, nonsensical, Tomino-directed giant robot shows with great action scenes. Daitarn 3 is old and a bit ugly, but like any good Plain Jane, it more than makes up for being unattractive by having great character(s) and charm.

Both are mecha shows by Tomino that offer a silly, happy-go-lucky take on a genre often crowded by more somber titles.

Both are made by "Happy" Tomino, and have similar plots, characters and robots (Even on the way they fight!).
