Journey through the post-apocalyptic world.

"Amnesia" totally feels like a 90s remake of Galaxy Express 999 with Tetsuro (Wataru) and Maetel (Sophia) travelling across post-apocalyptic USA in quest for understanding what makes a human soul. However, you start to feel the spirit of GE999 closer to the middle of the show. Supervised by Rintaro.

The setting of a post-apocalyptic world is a commonality between these two shows that otherwise feel very dissimilar, with "High School of the Dead" being set in a modern Japan whilst "A Wind Named Amnesia" being set in a more futuristic United States. The male protagonists from both anime are kindhearted and straightforward action heroes, especially when they jump into danger in order to save people in need of help.

Both are post apocalyptic road movies/series and have a melancholic, philosophical feeling to it. While the third, the civilization had already more recovered in Amnesia, the collapse is still more recent.

Both series involve a world in which society now follows far more basic rules of survival and in which many of the cities are rather broken down. In Mospeada, people can still talk, but similarities between the two are uncanny. Both also involve a group traveling around to different cities and have some similar experiences among them, even if their goals are different. If you want to see more ruined cities and people living in now terrible societies, check the other out.

Aliens seek/sought world annihilation. Should the human race be allowed to continue as it is or should it start afresh? Should love be over the human destiny or should the human destiny be over love.

While in A wind name Amnesia is shown how world faced its "Death" in Interlude u already see it destroyed - in the end at least. Is a very interesting anime whose characters are trapped between two worlds trying to understand which one is real. Can't say there are a lot of similarities between this two, but I strongly believe that those who enjoyed Kaze no Na wa Amnesia, will enjoy Interlude as well.

Both "Kino's Journey" and "A Wind Named Amnesia" have traditional sci-fi elements in them, that one would expect to find in western movies and TV series. However neither would ever be done in the west, but their backdrops have been used multiple times. Both series are about 2 people (well one person and a motorcycle that speaks in "Kino's Journey", and trust me it's not as silly as it sounds), who are on a journey, and travel to many different places that are in contrast with each other, and our world. Both series are journeys in the literal sense, and journeys into the human mind.  read more

Apocolyptic movies made during the same time frame, both share simular themes to each other.

Both animes are about earth with very few humans on it.
