CULTURE CLASH / SHOCK! Off the top of my head, I can list a number of Hollywood films with a premise involving a character from a more advanced culture coming to understand and eventually find the beauty in a more primitive culture. Lawrence of Arabia, Dances with Wolves, The Last Samurai, Avatar... Pocahontas, even. In comparison, anime has next to nothing. In fact, out of all the anime I've seen, only Macross Zero and Gargantia deal with the subject.

Epic dogfights although I think the ones in macross are better.

The couple Oguna and Kajika has some similarity to Shin Kiduo and Sara Nome, as well as Kidou and Oguna are foreigners who are attracted by a popular girl native of the place. Furthermore endings are a bit similar, by the ambiguity between tragedy and not so tragic.

These are about the nature of life, death and how the universe takes part in this process here on earth. I found these both to have a sort of spiritual feel to them. If you've seen one or the other, you'll understand what I mean. Both are also moderate romances. Hikari/akari = Sara Ninomiya/Takeru = Shin I highly recommend both of these series.

If you liked the full CG animation air combat battles, you'd like both Macross Zero and Yukikaze

Both animes are serious and introspective, more dedicated to work with character development and psychological aspects. The difference is that Macross Zero has more adrenaline, the air battles can let you out of breathe easily. RahXephon has magnificent battles too, but it focus more on dialogues and storyline.

Similar battle animation. Plot that involves aliens and similar feel to anime.
