Both of them have few favourite Bones features, which they applied to almost all of their original works:
- a mysterious girl with unique abilities, which is somewhat apathetic towards her life;
- a special crew of few members which accept our main (or not so main) hero and he starts to learn about their past and ways of living;
- a Green Peace scent - let's save the nature and all the people, though in Xam'd it's not as strong as in Eureka;
- a teh genki brown-hair shounen, destined to save the Earth from some great disaster;
- lots of support characters which don't hesitate to make appearance even more often than main ones etc.
and loads of minor similarities as character designs, plot twists, seiyu etc. read more
Airspace, adventure, action and a great base story. Characters show similarity, being on a 'neutral' airship doing 'odd-'job(s) to make a living. Sound, visual and the scenery are in both anime's stunning. While Eureka Seven has more episodes, sidestories, Xam'd seems to be sticking to the storyline. But both are awesome to watch, taking you on a great adventure.
Bones, the producers of Eureka seven (aired 2005-2006) made another great anime: Bonen no Xamdou (aired 2008-2009)
(if you liked eureka seven then you might even be more hyped about this anime.)
- Both animes got some wonderful characters with some great depth
- The fantastic sound and music in both shows makes the experience watching these shows wonderful
- The story in both animes is probably what will catch your interest the most though! Sci-fi Action Adventures can't go wrong honestly ... hah
- Oh and ofc ... The animation is amazing, nuf said!
You'll find some big similarities between the shows, but i wont tell you what, since you'll notice them yourself when you will start watching. However.. They are very much alike ! ;)
I believe that both animes are based on awsomness! read more
Xam'd feels like a re-envisioning of Eureka Seven. Just like Eureka Seven, it has a motley crew aboard aircraft/airship zipping around here and there with some awesome mecha action thrown in. So if your ever looking for something similar, give Xam'd a shot.
Both of the main male roles are supported by a group of interesting characters who've got their own flying ship. Both have strong mecha themes, and both Renton and Akiyuki have to mature in order to survive. Both animes start focusing around the every day guy's life and develop from there. Xam'd and Eureka 7 both have protagonists resisting the military.
So... these have pretty similar themes, styles, and whatnot (same makers, after all), and the plots could also be called similar, what with a dumb guy who happens to land on a cool airship with a crazy crew and a strange girl with short colored hair that has jewelery adorning a right strand of her hair, and then they fly around having to battle ancient evils and conspiracies and crap like that.
The art style and plot are so similar it is eerie, but I feel like Xam'd being shorter was really nice in that I still got a lot of character development. There was a nice ethnic diversity in the characters, which I really appreciated as well.
I got the same feeling watching both.
Both stories have a main character getting away from his home on a Ship for different reason after meeting another important character. To survive. To Follow someone. To make their life something more. Doesn't matter. Both Character, non really knowing what is happening at first start to slowly get it and pretty much 'Make' the Ending happen the way it does by becoming character with a important impact on other character and on the story.
Both are good show really entertaining.
Don't expect some Mecha in Xam'd tho you won't find any.
Both series contains sci fi theme as well as very similar character designs considering the same studios are involved.
Both series also contain interesting cast of characters and rather similar setting with technology beyond our modern world age.
Both series contain action, sci fi, drama, some comedy, tragedy, and even romance. Both series' main protagonist also has their lives completely turned upside down after strange events in the pilot episode.
Story, What happen to the MC and how they both ended up on a ship that they don't fit in the start.
Nakiami and Eureka, Takehara and Renton. Their personality are pretty much the same as well.
If you like the one then you'll 100% like the other
Xam'd : Lost Memories is very similar to Eureka Seven , first it's the same studio who produced the two series , which is studio BONES . That's why it has the same art (thanks to Ayumi Kurashima )
The heroes are two teenager who following an incident finds themselves transported into an airship. On board a commander who dictates orders, and a crew who will laugh at them before they become one of them .
And in the two series the plot revolves around love ...
Yes it's exactly the same ...
We could even say that the stories are taking place in the same world .
In conclusion , two EXCELLENT series who will fascinate you by their story and originality .
Both shows start with very similar premises. Akiyuki and Renton are very similar characters that start out kinda useless but grow as the event's in the story unfold. Both shows balance Action/Romance pretty well.
Honestly the many aspects of this show are extremely similar to Eureka Seven yet different. Both use Mechs that either are or used to be a living being and it is these beings that possess an overwhelming amount of power, but of course they aren't full understood yet. The Main characters Akiyuki (Xam'd) and Renton (Eureka Seven) both have fathers who are well known among the military personnel. They are strong willed yet not sure how to interact with their new family. Especially when it comes to the girl they love. Our main Heroines Eureka and Nakiami are the only people who see the machines as living beings and have some sort of personal connection to them. There are people who are resisting the military who do understand that these are beings to be respected and left alone. Honestly once you watch it you'll be hooked.  read more
Eureka Seven takes many MANY things from Evangelion, such as characters (i.e: Rei Ayanami = Eureka), use of mecha, some things from the plot, etc. Sometimes when I was watching Eureka 7 I felt i was wachting eva, altough Eureka is not as sad or phsicological as Evangelion.
Both main characters are boys. Both go through things that make them go through developement. Theres plenty of Mecha battles and drama in both of them and both can get psychological at times. Also, in both NGE and E7 the mechs make up a lot of the mysteries in the plots.
Few anime series can compare to the masterpiece that is Evangelion, but if you are looking for something similar then Eureka Seven is more than likely a series you'll enjoy. Both stories' central focus is around a young male and his search for belonging, as he's thrown into the midst of a giant conflict. Giant mechs, young love, and large casts to boot, these two series are both quite similar to each other in a number of ways. Spoilers and synopses aren't my type, so ultimately I'll leave it for you to decide. Eureka Seven certainly isn't as timeless as Eva, but it's one of the better series one could compare it to and it still does a great job of keeping its audience captivated up until the final curtain falls. read more
Both are about young boys that live in the shadow of a great catastrophe caused by their father. As such, they have "daddy issues" but both boys get a father figure mid-series that helps them grow. Both have humanoid biological robots, both have a kuudere blue haired girl pilot that's around before the protagonist shows up and has a special connection with her robot. She serves as the main's love interest. Both series also have another pilot girl who is a little crazy, but really just had a terrible upbringing and doesn't know how to love. Both have a theme of the villain wanting to connect the consciousness of all humanity, both have an Earth that's undergone drastic climatic changes, both have the protagonist's robot upgrading to become more humanlike. Both even have controversial "retelling" movies! read more
I think everyone sees this. I was certain watching the first episode that Renton was a parody of Shinji. I think he's more of a reconstruction-taking all the things that make Shinji bad and using them to give the hero Renton becomes some powerful meaning. Themes of isolation, conflict with other species and nature, poor communication, and broken families, plus uncomfortable undertones of sexual exploitation as a marker of humanity's innate problems, are shared here. There's also the shared theme of madness, but hey, this is anime.
Both are story driven, though Eureka Seven is not as psychological as Neon Genesis Evangelion. Both are appealing even if you're not into mecha anime. Both have a bit of a love story though Eureka Seven is driven by the love story.
Most importantly, these are gems that should not be missed.
The mystery, mecha, and action are hard to deny in both series. Not to mention, romance as well. Both series also have emotional awkward children piloting giant mechs and creating their destiny. Their destiny are what leads to them to become what they eventually strive to achieve.
A classic mecha series for any fans who is interested.
During a conference in 2010, Dai Satō (writer of Eureka Seven) claimed that a lot of fans dismissed Eureka Seven as a clone of Neon Genesis Evangelion without even watching it.
It's true that both anime involve mostly psychological introspection of the characters and mecha fights, but there's so much more to Eureka Seven that people don't often talk about, and it's definitely worth discovering. Great soundtrack, natural design, touching themes (among which, true love) and mesmerizing plot are just a little taste of the whole world that Eureka Seven has to offer the spectator.
I'm only making this comparison simply because 1: They are pretty much staple to watch if you're first getting around to watching anime in general, and 2: watching E7 right after Evangelion won't leave you feeling destitute, since Eva is very diverse from everything else I've watched so far.
+ Dark mecha series which give off similar feelings (though NGE is much more consistently dramatic)
+ The mechs are not very normal and are more like humans in some ways even to the point where they bleed and react to human emotions
+ The characters are very similar (Renton, Eureka, Anemone, Talho, and Holland in Eureka 7 are similar to Shinji, Rei, Asuka, Misato, and Gendo in NGE respectively)
+ Characters have psychological breakdowns and the main character has to decide whether to leave or stay
Both anime have very similar characters and similar events in the plot. I actually think Eureka was based off of Rei, they are both teenage girls with blue hair and rarely express emotion in the beginning. Of course, both shows feature mechs that the main characters have to pilot.
Eureka 7 is almost literally Evangelion on surfboards. Don't get me wrong, a lot of things are pre-established tropes, especially within the mecha genre, but with E7 it's almost always Eva. Stuff like the alien/robot girl, the living mech, that's normal. But E7 crosses the line with this shit.
>Occasionally, an LFO will be headshot; this will be viewed from the side, with the LFO's black silhouette against a white background. Half a measure will pass, and blood will begin to cartoonishly spray out, a la UNIT01 in her fight with Zeruel.
>In one episode, Renton faces something dark that he had been putting off for a long time. When first confronted with it, however, the cockpit shot zooms in on Renton's face, where his hands are grasping, pulling the skin back. For dramatic effect, Renton's face is viewed through a fish-eye lens, and is highly detailed. He also screams as the camera cuts away, but that always happens, Eva or not. This scene's cockpit perspective almost looks like a shot-for-shot redraw of the beginning of Third Impact in End of Evangelion.
>The series features a light supernatural overtone with heavy sci-fi influence: There's magic, but it's special when it happens. Most things can be explained by science (internally, at least), but there is an ominous feeling of the supernatural even when everything "makes sense."
>Renton is an unlikable bitch that was just like you at 14. Okay, that one doesn't count, that's way too common.
>The villain's primary goal is achieved through the protagonists, but it ends up being a good thing because whatever who cares. Unlike in NGE, where the shadowy goals of SEELE are ambiguous and unclear (with Instrumentality being morally questiobable), Dewey's plans of destroying reality end up being a unanimously agreed good thing. Third Impact involves a giant red orb in both cases. Lewd ensues.
I know that's only three points, but as you watch there's a certain feeling that begins to overtake you as you watch, and it gets painful to continue in parts. If you haven't seen Evangelion, watch E7 first. read more
Think of NGE as the angst ridden older sibling of E7. They are both mecha anime involving a somewhat pessimistic and introverted protagonist (Shinji more so than Renton), biological mecha and a girl with seemingly no emotions. However, Eureka Seven has a relatively upbeat tone and likeable characters as well as a sweet and happy ending, Neon Genesis is very dark in tone with disturbed and emotionally broken characters as well as a confusing and depressing ending. I would highly recommend both shows
Both Tengen Toppen Gurren Laggann and Eureka 7 revolve around small, young male leads coming of age in a world they don't quite feel comfortable with. With the help of their friends, and respective similarly aged love interests, both Simon and Renton find the motivation to better themselves and grow into strong young men. These shows both balance comedy with drama, all the while displaying heavy mecha themes.
both are about young men who start out kind of unsure of themselves and wimpy, but through certain events grow and become majorly epic, and because of that end up changing/saving the world. And both have otherworldly girlfriends that they pretty much risk it all for.
Both Gurren Lagann and Eureka Seven center around young boys who are developing into brave young men. Both series include a strange girl that makes the young hero blush, and characters with similar personalities (i.e. Talho and Yoko, or Holland and Kamina). They also both have to do with mecha and alternate worlds. Beings other than humans exist in these worlds. E7 is the longer series.
Gurren Lagann is similar to Eureka Seven in the use of mech. But thats not all, it shares a similar young protagonist and a mysterious young girl. But at the same time Gurren is nothing like Eureka Seven, in that it is compleat fun insanity at times, and at other times is much more dramatic.
Both are about large groups of people on an adventure to save the world. Both have constant use of mech, though it is more significant in Gurren Lagann. Gurren Lagann has more comedy and ecchi moments, while Eureka Seven has more drama and romance.
Various instances in the series correspond with each other.
Spiral Power = Eureka + Renton's ablity to bring out power in the Nirvash
Existance of universal limitations present in both series.
Boy meets girl situation in both series which develops a bond throughout the series.
Well..here we are!~ let's start saying that both anime have a main char as a boy that start the whole story with his own power. Both anime have the mecha side as an important part, and the factor 'a world to change'; also the characters group are kinda similar. Another great point that both series have is the Simon+Nia's relationship a lot similar to Renton+Eurka's one.
For the graphic part: Good char design and pretty nice background design in both anime. And a really interesting story for both. I highly recommend to watch both! Trust me :3
Ok, gurren lagann are super robot inspired and eureka seven are real robot inspired, but these two have much similarities. Starting with protagonist, renton and simon, both are fearfull boys and both makes a lot of misses but in decisives hours, they makes the job. Talho and Yoko, both are the sexl simbol of their animes, strong girls with nice attributes. Nia and Eureka are nothing similar but, Nia/Simon - Eureka/Renton relationship are similar, both are learning from each other. Both main organization (gekkostate and dai gurren dan) are similar too, smart, with a lot of confusion, fight and comedy with your members. And for finish, you probaly gets the same feeling watchting both.
Conclusion: Both are nice animes, if you watch one, watch the other. Eureka Seven And Gurren Lagann are masterpieces. read more
Both Simon and Renton are boys with normal lifes,but suddenly Simon comes up to surface,and Renton joins the Geko State.They both become stronger,and in the end they have to fight,to save the world.
Tengen Toppa is more epic,and have a bit more humor in it.
But Eureka Seven has more romance.
In fact I never thought that Gurren Lagann would bring the same feeling as Eureka when I just started watchung it. But after all they have a lot of common treats. Let's see:
1. Mecha. Mechas are everywhere, they are battle machines controlled by human, but there ought to be a special one that can be controlled only be whom? Right, main character.
2. Main male characters in both anime evolve during the series. They start as scared boys and grow up as courageous men.
3. Main femal character are somehow connected with alien race and bound to the main hero.
4. And after all they are global. The stories bedin in some small city or village and then spread all over the whole world.
5. And the last point is that both cannot leave you indifferent for sure! read more
Both are absurd, over-the-top, DBZ-style mecha, yet they are also deceptively deep. E7 features much more romance than TTGL, while TTGL has more focus on adrenaline, but both deal with 14 year old boys who learn how to be men by taking on the mission of saving the world, and having to deal with life's tough situations.
Both Gurren Lagann and Eureka Seven revolve around two somewhat wimpy protagonists (Simon and Renton). The two ultimately become involved with a whirlwind of events regarding the fate of the world, drastically changing the average pace of their lives. Both protagonists join their respective teams (though in Gurren Lagann the team forms as the story progresses), which both serve to oppose the antagonist forces in some way and endure a variety of experiences, happy and tragic, that serve to develop them extensively as the story progresses. Simon and Renton have love interests that, while quite different personality wise, can both be considered naive about certain aspects of human life and are both a far cry from typical humans for reasons revealed throughout the stories. Both series utilize mecha as a means to carry out the storyline throughout, with intense battles in which the protagonists require intense willpower to ensure victory.
There are, however, some distinct differences. Gurren Lagann is a much more over the top, action based story that retains a simple yet effective plot. Eureka Seven focuses more on the drama and romance aspects with a more developed (and longer) story. Gurren Lagann is categorized as super robot, while Eureka Seven is real robot, meaning drastically different mecha designs as well as the fact that Gurren Lagann has much more high-scale and explosive type action by comparison. The settings are also quite different, as Eureka Seven has a more sci-fi and futuristic feel, at least until Gurren Lagann reaches the second half. Aside from the major characters, Gurren Lagann and Eureka Seven have very different casts, especially with the antagonists and side characters.
All in all, both are great stories and if you like one then the other should be very enjoyable as well. read more
A teenage boy main character that starts off weak but eventually becomes stronger a long the way with his love interest. The planets that the shows take place in are mostly a wasteland with very little life. The mecha's in both shows evolve to become even stronger.
The rebelling group, started first out as fun people, then became serious as the story went on. The Authority is protect the world but not the people. There is mecha, there is duo who control the main mecha. Renton, and Eureka kinda seem like Simon and Nia only R&E seem to have more love then S&N. Nia looks alot like Eureka, too.
It even has Johnny Yong Bosch, voice of Renton, but in Gurren Lagann, he isnt the main character, but he is the second secondary pilot of the Main Mecha.
Both Main Male Protagoras changed a lot ever since the first episode, they both start from someone that's weak and silly but later one they both turned mature & badass :P
Fighting, Drama & Romance are alike..........
Both of these wonderful anime are about a boy who is living in a cycle where it's the same thing every day and nothing changes. Then, a girl appears in their lives, and everything goes downhill from there. Both Eureka Seven and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann are also mecha and bery entertaining! AND, Renton and Simon (the main characters of these series) are both 14 and aid in a revolution to change the world in which they live for the better! I highly reccomend Eureka Seven to any Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann fan!
Yong boy protagonist led by a hot headed bad-ass leader! Evil alien race with a plot to suppress humanity! A love interest with a secret past! These are some of the thing these 2 anime have in common. The only major difference between Eureka Seven and Gurren Lagann are the emotions you feel while watching them. Gurren Lagan has a more FTW!! happy approach while Eureka Seven is a little more sad and logical. They have a very similar story, but have different tones. Its up to you to decide if you can like both The Gecko State and Die Gurren.
Both are mecha.
Nia and Eureka are both special in their own way.
Their personalities are similar and trust the MCs.
Similar kind of plot involving different beings and a journey to save the world.
They are both in the future.
Both series are almost the same but Eureka Seven has a deeper plot in my opinion and has much more romance than TTGL.
A teenage boy meets a cute apathetic girl in which they are connected by a red string of fate to these unique girls. The closer these individuals become the more we see how deep of a connection they share.
Both series have a mecha theme when on the battlefield
Both have a teenage boy following a strange girl into a rebel group and becomes said groups best weapon.
Both girls have a similar personality and share a similar part in the main storyline.
Both anime have a mecha theme
Boy meets Emotional(mysterious) girl.The girl having secret relationship with someone.
Romantic relationship with partner(Eureka/Renton, Shu/İnori).Girl wanted to project male character,the same way she wanted to be away from him.The main character doesn't know anything about the history of his family.Main character in the series became a man.Two series have Good Soundtrack and OP/ED.
Mecha that takes place in post-apocalyptic world;
group of rebels *a.k.a terrorists vs the official military rule;
charismatic leader of rebels & newby who doesn't even understand what he's exactly doing;
mysterious girl with unknown powers;
in GC I do believe in romance between protagonists that will somehow save the world like it was in Eureka
1- Its a underground group who tries to change the world who is about to its ends. Apparently.
2- The main character begins expecting for a ''life change''. He's bored of living the same life and blablabla. Then a certain guy pops up and offers him to join his underground group and start doing missions and, you know the common things.
3- The owner of this group, is respected by everyone and no one dares to dissapoint him. No one.
4- Both main character get slapped by the group's owner for being so childish and stupid. Yes.
5- After a few episodes you're starting to notice the main character less coward and doing shit to surprise people.
6- Both main character fall in love with a girl more powerfull than they are.
7- The group's owner go all like ''So you choosed him'' when the chick picks the main character over them.
8- They kiss the bitch they stupidity fall in love.
9- The place where they live is also taken by someone else power.
10- Theres this guy who's crazy about owning the world. And this is my favorite character.
11- The cute goody goody guy can't miss.
12- After the group's owner gives up about the chick, they go for the other girl. Apparently Gui missed this part.
13- If i keep going it'll take me hours.
14- EVERYTHING IS CLICHÉ. I prefer Eureke Seven but... read more
main char doesnt really want to fight, but wants to protect girl
resistance group vs military
girl and boy first meet at like a old warehouse like place, used by boy
boys have similar hair
boy and girl believe in eachother, when they get closer
Also the military has orbital space station that can leave a MASSIVE crater
when we talk about these two animes especially , No one can deny that they are similar to each other
the main character is a boy (renton, shu ) who has no thing special in his live ,this changes when he meet a girl ( Eureka, Enory ) and fall in love .then the two decide to go and fight with them . the two Animes has big robots ( mecha ) and they fight against their country army ( evil) . I really find these two animes very alike and very wonderful !
Both main protagonists in Guilty Crown and Eureka Seven live seemingly meaningless lives until they meet a girl that changes their fate forever. Their bonds are strengthened as the shows progresses and go through many endeavors with a group of close friends.
-Main character is the ordinary people who will join the organization.
-at first weak but increasingly stronger
-when angry ,no one can stop main character except main heroine
-Main character is always close with main heroine
Male main characters both suck in the beginning. Are unbearable to watch at times. However, as they progress, they get stronger.Also, both of their sisters disappear. Female main character are the same, non-human, but romantically involved with the male main character. Basically in my eyes Guilty Crown is almost like a dark spinoff to Eureka Seven
+ Both are set in worlds where the military is overwhelming and abusive of their power
+ Lots of drama and similar characters
+ Especially for the main trio (Renton, Eureka, and Holland in Eureka 7 and Shu, Inori, and Gai) the relationship is almost identical
- Eureka 7 has more of a focus on mechs while Guilty Crown focuses more on the drama involved with the military versus the rebels
- Guilty Crown involves more high school age characters as well as a bit of a school genre
Both anime have strong undeveloped male leads who live in the shadow of a bigger and more respected alpha male. Also the protagonists join their organizations for the sake of a crush on female lead, and are then used for the special abilitys that they posses.
The character development, unpredictable plot, and strong character connection is why you should watch these two. These will make you cry.
-The both have the same genres ( action, mecha, drame... )
-A main girl and a main boy protagonists who is going to have a relation, the main boy protagonist will join a group (Gekkostate/Funeral Parlor) and will meet the main girl. The main boy have a superpower on each anime related with an hidden history.
Overall, both are well done, unique animes with a nice style to them that anyone can enjoy if they don't have a stick up their butt.
Even though many people dislike Mecha animes, both of these seem to be loved by all including the Mecha haters. Both animes have interesting characters, plots (although Eureka 7 is rather confusing at the start) and awesome giant robots. Their stories are not similar but this just makes watching them a whole new enjoyable experience.
Both shows have a young boy who is placed with powers that he is unsure of. The Goverment is keeping both of the young men back as they try to take over the world. Eureka Seven will give you the deeper conation to the supporting cast other that just the main cast.
Both are mecha and have a dark tone. Eureka Seven is slower and a little less dark than Code Geass, but the story and action are great. The character development is excellent and has you really hoping the two MC's succeed.
Both these series has a genuin story, characters you really learn to like and they are flying in both series. Both main characters want to protect those who are close to them, and they both have a female flying with them. There are a huge storm in both series that they have to get through.
Both series are great, and you should take your time watching them both.
They're soo similar it's scary. The overall themes match, with both deal w/ character interactions with the world around them. And in both, the setting is almost like a character in and of itself. And of course, a heavy focus on flying. Eureka Seven is more futuristic, while Last Exile is more steampunk. Both are great series and if you liked one... odds are high that you'll like the other.
Both are excellent series with a focus on flight, and involve the main character(s) joining a rogue aircraft with a brooding leader and a likeable crew. In Eureka Seven the technology is more futuristic, while in Last Exile it's a steampunk-influenced combination of old and new.
Though both involve flying, it's in a very different way. Last Exile is very steampunk, while Eureka Seven has a cleaner, more futuristic feel. However, they're still very similar. Alex Rowe and Holland would either be best friends or kill each other. But the crew of the Silvana and the members of Gekkostate would definitely get along. And, unfortunately, they both have very vague (but epic) endings. The only main difference is that Last Exile lacks the romantic story Eureka Seven has.
Both Last Exile and Eureka Seven share adventure and sci-fi genre.
Still, both have a plot evolving around flying ships, war and interesting characters.
Klaus (for Last Exile) and Renton (for Eureka Seven) have to protect whose dear to them and will do it through the whole story.
A note to mention is also the good cast of seiyuus and very good art which both series have. Additionally, Last Exile has a quite nice ost.
As a difference instead, Eureka has a more futuristic technology while Last Exile shows an "oldish" technology on the style of 19th centuary.
For sure if you liked one of those, you'll probably enjoy the other as well! read more
Both actually same series in different set-up. l'm pointing out some of similarities. (contains some minor Spoilers)
* Both Main characters are duo pair pilots & they both have a female flying with them.
* Both series taking place in the sky & both MC living in a floating ship.
* Both ships has a charismatic captain & both have a sad past & they mark as a outlaw & they fighting against world govt.
* Both protagonist takes care one/many child.
* Both world have a mysterious stormy place.
* Both captains worked under both protagonist's father & both captain hide the fact from both protagonist.
There are some more but that will be major spoilers. if u like one of them you will like other one too. watch them carefully you will find more similarities. read more
Both Eureka 7 and Suisei no Gargantia feature unique sci-fi worlds that have similarities but fundamental differences. At their core, there are robots involved, a rather large cast of characters, and a beautiful world filled with secrets. Essentially, there is a sense of adventuring, of growing up, of dealing with a harsh world and searching for one's identity. Eureka 7 paints a fuller world with its length which is something Gargantia could've done better, but if you liked one, you're bound to at least be interested in the other. Highly recommended for sci-fi fans.
The main character's peaceful life changed. He meets a group of people who are in a similar situation and decides to help them out. Both series has the main protagonist who is put in a new surrounding.
In both series, a main protagonist gets involved with a mysterious character after a certain incident. In Eureka Seven, it's Eureka. in Suisei no Gargantina, that mysterious character is Ledo. These two characters have trouble communicating with others or understanding others' feelings. However with the help of their new friend, they are able to understand the world a bit better.
There is mecha/science fiction themes present in both series. In fact, the mysterious character present relies on them and treats it as somewhat of a friend.
The backgrounds of both series also feels somewhat similar; giving off that science fiction outlook.
Both series also has drama, comedy, and of course action. read more
Both include mechs, and a character that isn't exactly human. Ledo is similar to Eureka at the beginning of the series, he has no attachments to life, nor human feelings. He is however a human, but not entirely. It looks like they are created not born. It's a definitely a good watch.
Now both involve moving to a "new" planet due too the original being inhabitable and using giant robots to fight their enemies. As well as having the main protagonist being slightly emotionless. All in all slightly similar story and I feel if you enjoyed eureka 7 you would enjoy this.
The main protagonist joining the 'terrorists' and later finding out that they are actually the good guys etc etc and many more similar things. Both shows just give the same feeling, you'll know when you whatch ;D
The protagonist of both these shows is a young boy. They're introduced to a rebel group, a group seeking to oppose the government/system controlling them. There is also a similar art style as well as setting with the plains being the large surrounding setting.
Fractale has a striking similarity to Eureka Seven in many ways.
The first big thing I noted, was the world in which both anime took place, had a similar, peaceful, post apocalyptic feel to them. Although in E7, the world seems to be more vibrant and technology driven, as there is no mecha in this anime. The people of the world of Fractale are nomads, which is the main difference.
Another big resemblance is the plot. It runs around the same lines, although much shorter, it still feels very similar.
Finally, the romance between the two main characters, while it was way stronger between Renton and Eureka, is still there, and in the end, is heart warming.
Do not watch this if you are looking for something as good as E7, as there isn't really anything out there that is as good. Do watch this if you enjoyed E7, and want something that isn't as serious, or just want something that will help you "get over" E7 in a short amount of time. read more
Both Start with a organization sought by the government (Gekkostate in Eureka Seven, Vultures in Gundam X) who try protect some special person/species (Coralians in Eureka Sevan, Newtypes in Gundam X). Progatonist, some secundary characters (renton = garrod, eureka = tiffa, talho = Toniya and Mischa = Techs) and your relationship are similar (GarrodxTiffa and RentonxEureka).
Both main casts are "Freedom Fighters" in a sense that they're a small group of well talented people that strive to bring change by repelling the powers that be.
Both series have a plucky, headstrong hero who falls head over heels in love with an emotionally aloof, but super strong-willed girl. Their love is but one part of the series' entire purpose, but are perfect examples of non-gimmicky innocent romance.
Both are above-average mecha series that don't exactly focus on the mecha. Both are paced EXCEEDINGLY well, and are very well written.
After War Gundam X was cut short from it's broadcast run(although... that part doesn't subtract it's goodness), so you may feel a bit saddened by what "could've been". It's mecha fights, whilst not bad, aren't in the same league with Eureka 7. The romance here isn't as potent here either.
Eureka Seven's romance is a bit more prominent since it goes hand-in-hand with it's other story. Likewise the romance progresses faster, with more extremity, and with more daring choices. The mecha sequences are some of the most smoothest, most inspirational ones you'll see around! read more
Gundam X can almost be considered as the anime that influenced several plot aspects of Eureka 7. Garrod and Renton are very similar in the fact that they both join up with a group of individuals on a ship in order to protect a mysterious girl they immediately fall for (ie Eureka and Tiffa).
Put it in a nutshell, Mars Daybreak (MD) is a rough sketch of all Bones' anime features. And Eureka is a linear heir of MD. So they share lots of elements - a crew fighting against regime, an high-tech awesome ship (that thing did fly even though it's a submarine), mecha, teh genki shounen with brown hair, aliens and other stuff including graphics, orphans and a Green Peace spirit.
While Eureka Seven takes place on earth and in the skies and has flying and gliding mechas, Mars Daybreak takes place obviously on mars and not so obviously underwater with mechas able to function underwater. Both shows are about a young boy who joins an organization and live in a ship. Both organizations are famous and have something to do with the government.
The Director of Eureka 7 (Tomoki Kyoda) was also involved as Assistant Director for Rahxephon, and both series share a lot in common. Rahxephon, like Eureka 7, is also a "character-driven" mecha which I'd highly recommend to anyone who likes a good love story with giant robots thrown in, or a giant robot story with a love story thrown in - take your pick, you win either way.
this show takes place in the sky and land, but Eureka Seven took place on land first then took it into the sky and Elemental Gelade is the other way around. They both have that romance between man and something/woman.
Both are adventure/romance series. They are similar because they both have the guy meets girl, guy wants to protect girl, and the guy gets the girl in the end theme. Even though you may not like that kind of theme, you will still like these series.
Both are about a guy who falls in love with an emotionally-detached humanoid girl, they fight together with some sort of combo-attack or whatnot, they try to make the world a better place for the two prevalent lifeforms, both are action/comedy shows with a bit of romance.. and I can keep drawing parallels all day.
Both series feature characters adventuring in a foreign, imaginary world which contains new natural laws of physics, new disciplines, species, new sciences, sports, political structures, and religions:
Limit of Questions=Equivalent Exchange
Basically, the worlds feel similarly fresh and fleshed out. The character casts are equally large, with two strong male leads and one or two strong female leads. Both protagonists are on a quest to save the world. The character development and pacing is exactly the same in both. Both series are the same length. Both leave similar feels when in your mind when finished. The cultural/ethnic differences in people has similar detail. Extremely similar animation. Both developed by BONES. If you liked one, you will like the other. Trust me. read more
Both shows follow a similar format, which makes sense as they are both shounen with similar length. FMAB and E7 both contain similar themes and similar tension as the show progresses. While the shows may be in completely different worlds, you get the same feeling from the characters and from the story. I do not recommend this if you are looking for strictly mecha shows or strictly fantasy world/alchemy, as you will be disappointed. Both are among the greatest shounens and both are developed by Bones.
Both of these series have a main character who were left behind of their fathers and who are friends with people who have participated in a mass genocide. FMAB and Eureka Seven also have the similiarity with roles of supporting characters. Eureka Seven in my eyes reminded of several different anime but it has it's own unique family friendly flavor to it. (As does Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood) It's a very nostalgic show for many and just a overall amazing anime to others. It does have it's quirks but, no matter why you watch it, I know you'll probably enjoy it!
The protagonist Daichi has a similar background to Renton as they both are young boys who are not satisfied with the current life they lead and want to pursue something they love and feel passionate about. Their fathers are both intertwined in a series of strange circumstances surrounding the causes of their deaths. They also both share a strange connection with a young girl who seems to have special abilities and shrouded with an air of mystery.
Main character Renton (E7) and Daichi (Captain Earth) both come off with the same type of background story. Their fathers both being heroes in their way and dying to become one. Also presumably they both meet aliens Eureka/ Coralian (E7) and my guess for Captain Earth is that both Teppei and the Brown-haired girl are alien as well. Bones!
Other than the similar colour schemes between the Earth Engine and the Nirvash Type 0, both of these shows have several easy parallels that you can make. If you liked the mech designs from either shows, the following one could indeed tickle your fancy.
Both have the story of a boy wanting to become hero after following the death of their father having being branded a hero.
Both have a really similar atmospheric feel to them which is : Living in Summer.
Both are Studio Bones Mecha, so it definitely will look amazing art and animation wise.
Both have really similar romance plotlines of star crossed lovers who are meant to be with each other.
Like any other mecha shows, its about the coming of age of a young boy. These two shows differ from the norm by having a more boyish type of characters instead of being melodramatic or being The Master.
Both of these shows have similar themes of Family and Trusting each other. Which show did it better? It is up for you to decide :)
The tonality of both of these shows are similar. They have a slice of life and living the life of a boy doing boyish things aspects to them.
These two shows differ as Eureka Seven is a 50 episodes show about a boy who grows up, falls in love and discovers the reality of life whether it be politics, war, refugees and human disgusting-ness, whereas Captain Earth is a 25 episodes show about a boy who discovers friendship and family, while taking responsibility in life.
Similar in telling a story that ends up on a much larger scale than it started! World and existential issues caught up in a coming-of-age type story. Both have lots of relatively complex minor characters. And both are frequently funny, while also tackling some deep stuff!
Both series are produced by the same anime studio, BONES, with roughly the same number of episodes each (50 E7/51 FMA). Both shows delve deep into their main characters pasts, and develop them nicely throughout their run. There are no cookie cutter characters to be found in either series, as each character is made out to be unique, with clear character designs for viewers to distinguish one character from another. They're also both fantasy adventures, with rules and powers unique to each series. The bgm/ost for both fit amazingly well for their respective series. If you're looking for something epic to watch, E7 & FMA are definitely two series you should consider trying. read more
Both are around 50 or so episodes and are from Studio Bones. They both deal with the themes of intolerance, militarism and mass extermination carried out by said military. They also have a well developed cast of side characters.
Renton and Shingo are very similar in terms of drawing and personality. Both have messy brown hair and green eyes; both influence the other members of the organization. The mechas are both shrouded in mystery. Both leads fall in love with a mysterious girl.
Because they have simular sitiutation of "boy meets girl". Renton and Shingo have almost exactly same expression when they first met Eureka and Mana. Eureka and Mana chose Renton and Shingo to be their "partner". But the thing is different is that, Eureka seven have kind of less fighting and more love-y and Eureka and renton do even kiss in the end.
It's a good transition either way. Air gear isn't exactly about saving the world but going from boarding to blading makes it easy to get hooked. Both Itsuki and Renton are both aspiring characters who thrive to make it to the top.
These 2 anime have so many similarities it's scary haha Firstly both are Mecha and focus heavily on "understanding each other" Both also feature misunderstood aliens who seem hostile at first but their intentions turn out to be peaceful. In both series the aliens need to merge with lifeforms to "share" their knowledge, but this has deadly effects on humans. Both alien species don't have a human shape and don't resemble any living organism in particular. They both use a "hive mind" Both series have really strange endings and leave you with more questions than answers.
both star annoying bratty characters from boring towns that turn into not-as-annoying-or-bratty characters throughout the course of the series. some other similarities are that both feature alien babes and sentient robots. eureka 7 also has a diverse list of characters that include people of color, children, elderly, different genders, and did i mention aliens?
Ozuma reminded me of Holand... But that's not the point. Both talk about galaxy and coexisting with other life forms. And lots of robots fighting in both. And in both anime at the end everyone comes back to live on earth, if remember correctly.
This anime is similiar to Eureka Seven in the fact that there is main mecha (like Nirvash) that is awakened by means of both main characters, Van Fanel and Hitomi Kanzaki. Both anime have a mythological genre as well, and both rely heavily on romance as well as a unique plot line that is unclear at the start, but reveals itself as the anime continues.
This isn't on here yet!! Both use the huge human-form machines to battle and fly in, Eureka Seven "surfs" or "refs". Both have a wonderful coming of age story with a sweet love story (Escaflowne leans a bit more on the love story).
The mecha and action involved in both series are quite similar. Although romance is absent in Rinne no Lagrange, both series has that feeling of identity in which the characters try to realize what they are.
Both anime are about very small group of outcasts on a single ship with advanced (super?)mecha against entire world. The reason of existence for those groups is also deeper than it seems (althought not the same)
The pacing and feeling of both series felt very similar, with introductions to the characters in the first half and then with more conflict and tension at the later half. Both series take their time and strive forward at and easy-going pace that manage to be both serious and with a mix of humour
hmm... simply put, the plots are similar in that the main characters are on the minority side ( linebarrels in the later half). they also like the woman who use the mecha first. both mechas used are the best in the series. also for themes they both have romance, comedy,action, and drama.
Both are love stories masquerading as epic science fiction plots. Both have a greater than average focus on the characters and neither compromises its main plot to get across the character development. Both are concerned with their main characters maturing and coming to terms with becoming adults. Less importantly, both also have some similar dynamics - e.g. both feature ship crews warring with large sinister organizations.
A seemingly ordinary boy is enamored by a special girl that he meets in a fated encounter. Together, the two embark on a journey around the world aboard a magnificent and powerful vessel, doing battle with an evil army. As the adults nurture them and the children look up to them, the girl undergoes changes as the boy makes her experience feelings she has never had before, and the love between the two develops and strengthens. When the truth about the girl is revealed, the boy must face his obstacles with courage.
Similar atmosphere and world.
Similar young main character who loves discovery, tech and hover boards.
Both shows have a mysterious young girl who seems out of this world and plays a major role in the plot.
Comet Lucifer almost feels like a little brother to Eureka Seven (that's a polite way of saying that it very clearly copies many of its aspects from ES). The worlds are very similar with how they're structured- mechas, hoverboards, semi-futuristic with a group of characters who live together and explore the world. The main characters from both shows parallel each other almost shockingly well. It's almost like the writer for Comet Lucifer got most of his ideas from Eureka Seven. Lastly, the art styles are almost exactly the same. None of this is a knock on Comet Lucifer at all, but it's easy to tell early on that it is heavily influenced by Eureka Seven.  read more
one thing similar is the ending i dont want to spoil it
the other similarity is a normal boy falls for a girl that has special powers and the girl is the only one able to save the world but the guy doesnt want to loose her
Both original stories made by Kataoka Jinsei and Kondo Kazuma. And share such things as sci-finess, main character getting involved in things he don't want to and mysterious girl as his companion.
Even though they quiet different in setting: Eureka is more light and colorful story with romance-lines, while DW is more dark and tragic.
Both revolve around a seemingly normal, awkward, young couple with a weak, unsure male protagonist. Both stories are changed by an unexpected twist and both deal with a "world changing" event. Mirai Nikki and Eureka Seven have pretty serious stories that are lightened by the romantic and comedy aspects that make them excellent!
Main male is the loser at school, runs away with main female
Main characters have a link with their mecha
Main female "had a thing" (kinda a stretch in Eureka Seven) for the main males role model but then falls in love with main male
The group travels alot
Part of Rebelling group
Both are mecha anime with a romantic pair that are the only ones who can pilot The Mysterious Mecha that all contemporary mechas are derived from.
One of them is a somewhat clueless going-nowhere youth who is related to someone famous in the mecha circles and has a family member who disappeared researching the truth about the early mechas' origins.
The other one is displaced among normal humans, but has a deep connection with The Mecha which is of special interest to contemporary scientific bodies. Their previous partner didn't work out. Their current partner bears a striking resemblance to their first.
The boy who's i total idiot but clearly talented with the female side character, both get picked on, get into fights, are in an organization with lots of friends and their purpose? To help and protect.
Eureka Seven and the Lucario movie have a few things in common: characters who redefine humanity, glorious angst and guilt, failures at communication, and perhaps most obviously, the theme of humanity's innate conflict with nature. They also feature bumbling young male protagonists, though Ash is much cooler and more able than Renton to start with.
Mecha anime, mixture of humor, and a bit romance
Great characters, well design and a great story
Both anime aim is to rescue the whole world.
Both series are great, and you should take your time watching them both ;P
Both anime start with small but big in the end. In the beginning we get:
The Book of Bantorra: Armed Librarians vs Shindeki Church
Eureka Seven: Gekko State vs World Goverment
but in the end, the story tell about how to save the world while dealing with a new entity
Mecha anime, mixture of humor, and a bit romance

Both anime aim is to rescue the whole world.
Both series are great, and you should take your time watching them both ;P
I felt that the technology used in both anime's were very similar and they both had the same feeling. Anyway while I was watching the first episode of Vividred Operation I had a strong recollection of Eureka Seven.
The concept is completely differently but the vibes are similar. The "feel good" factor is in both series.
Log Horizon is an anime where our characters landed in a world that is familiar yet different to them. As such, they spend their time trying to find out the degree of changes that have occurred, and, in the process, building up a fascinating world. Eureka Seven happens in a world quite different from ours, one that's full of mysteries that even our characters, who have lived there for their whole lives, do not understand. Constantly, they have to question what they understand about their world and explore it to a greater degree, which allows world building to take place simultaneously for the audience.
Both anime also have a large cast of likable characters, focusing on a few while not neglecting the rest. read more
Both feature a protagonist with family issues using their overpowered mecha to protect an enigmatic girl who falls out of the sky, getting involved in a war they didn't want and enduring out of the power of love.
Both also explore the reality of throwing children into a battle, and are heavily based around the themes of belonging and family.
Think of Gundam Unicorn as Eureka Seven with better animation, a more directed plot and without the mind-screws.
These anime are both very similar in the way that the male and female protagonist meet and an instant connection forms, and it almost seems they were "destined" to meet. Also, as the story progresses you see the relationship grow stronger. Both anime have a very emotional side to them, which really make you connect to the characters and their actions.
There is a romance in both anime and pretty similar Alicia-Welkin and Eureka-Renton. The girls on both series are special. However the male lead is normal.
Both male lead's father is a hero.
Gekkoustate and Squad 7 also pretty same, warm and sometimes crazy.
Both main lead's lost something dear to them too.
Oh and the ending is pretty same, I mean the last episode is really really alike. and how VC and E7 end also have a similar scene. Hold hand and etc.
Go watch for yourself, if you're a fan of E7 you definitely will loved this series also.
Both series are set in sci-fi world, but are primarily driven by romance. Despite both of them having faults, they are both pretty transcendental when they're at their best. They both also have lovely and inspired visuals and soundtracks.
Although appearance wise they may have nothing in common- one about parasytes and the other being a mecha and such, the first thing that came to my mind when finishing Parasyte was Eureka Seven. They have strikingly similar themes.
They both deal with Earth and nature and the bond between two species. Their endings are pretty similar as well ^^
Im surprised this isn't here already-- Girl with blue hair with special powers I got an extremely similar feeling from both animes. Of course wolf's rain is more dark, they are both amazing and deal with finding some different reality.
Sentient mechs, symbiotic relationships, homeships, little children onboard, somewhat balanced male/female protagonists... Plus they both have the war element, romance and something of a mystic nature inhabiting their planet.
Both Dimension W and Eureka Seven deal with a subplot of different dimensions. Eureka Seven has a group of Kids adopted by the title character Eureka that seem similar in some ways to the group that hangs around on Dimension W. Eureka and Renton have issues with family, and the loss of a parent to cope with as they try to find their purpose in life. There also is the undercurrent of conspiracy in Eureka Seven that adds to its atmosphere, which also feels a lot like some of the background for Dimension W.
Okay i know what you are thinking " how are they similar"
well story wise not that much. However there are videogames of each and they dont follow the story of the animation. There is mecha, (Prototype in Halo) and there are characters featured in the game, Dr. Halsey in Reach and Moon Doggy, Holland and Eureka in Eureka Seven Game
I like both even if you dont see them similar to eachother, I am obsessed with both
Both have main character that have special interactions with their mecha
Both have military under Evil CO
Main character doesnt really want to fight, but knows they have to
Kenchi was treated like Renton when he was with Charles and Ray
They feel like each other when you watch them
In ISM its is there isnt a couple,more of a harem, but in Eureka there is a couple
only the plot is similar
guy "destined to be" with this girl because of his predecessors
main goal between the two is coexistence
KomD male likes bikes, E7 male likes boards and LFOs (mechas)
KomD is more spiritual E7 is more scifi
Both have almost the same art and fluid animation.
Both are romances which are involved in a sci-fi story.
Both takes places in another world.
The relationship between the main characters is dramatic and the girl in both series has problems.
I can't say much about Buddy Complex yet as there are only a few episodes that have aired at the moment, but from what I can see of this anime, it gives me a similar atmosphere to Eureka 7. Both anime have mecha and (spoiler alert for Eureka 7) the idea of the future and past. Both amine are set in the future, and have a mysterious girl that comes into the main character's life. The ship in Buddy Complex really reminds of of the Gekkou in Eureka 7, though BC's is blue, while E7's is green. If you enjoy Buddy Complex, I highly recommend that you watch Eureka 7 and vice versa. read more
Eureka Seven and Kakumeiki Valvrave (Valvrave the Liberator) both deals with the usage of mecha in a world that has both mysteries and terrors.
The main male protagonist in both series leads a regular and boring life until a faithful one day where an event changes him forever. The main male protagonist also seems to want to protect what he treasures. Additionally, they have a crush on the main female protagonist.
There is science fiction/supernatural themes involved in both series. Additionally, there's military and action that involves the mecha used.
both anime feature an amorpheus species that chased humanity away from earth
the motives of the aliens are assumedly the same
during fights we often see the control station issueing orders and planning the next moves
(other simularities are kinda spoiler material)
Both have mecha
both protagist's fathers were great, Heroic Age is more parents
both have groups that want to destroy humanity, then later, part of that group joins the "good" side
at one point, the main char goes on a rampage without thinking
both have weird alien-like things
both mentions earth but dont live on earth
and the music is similar
Light hearted, yet heavy on character development and moral and ethical issues dealing with tolerance and equality. Governmental manipulation of public opinion and hiding truth behind a veil of lies and misunderstanding.
Both series took the standard mecha genre and pulled a unique spin on it. Eureka Seven had the mecha sky surf. Basquash had them play basketball. Both have a wonderful setting, and great attention to detail. And both have a character start starts of rather arrogant
Well the main characters are young and both love similar things which lead them on a grand adventure. Hey mecha anime is cool anyway and both have really good stories and Eureka 7 has some great music in it! Oh and Eureka 7 boasts very nicely designed mecha just like Gundam!
These two stories are similar coming of age tales, both featuring boys / young men thrown into a world much larger than anything they are used to. Amuro Ray and Renton also both have brilliant scientist fathers, and while the family dynamics are different, they both become pilots of a very poweful giant robot. They also join a state of the art ship piloted by a ragtag crew. The love interest (Eureka 7 -- Eureka) and (MSGundam -- Lalah, Sayla) is mysterious and holds sway over Amuro / Renton. Although MSG is much older than Eureka Seven (20+ years), the similarities in the main plot elements should provide a similar, but completely unique and enjoyable viewing experience. read more
I couldn't help but think of Infinite Ryvius while watching Eureka Seven. Although very different shows, the characters, interactions, and development between the two casts are very comparable. Both shows manage to develop a large cast very well, both with younger teen leads. There's also a lot of angst in these shows, but hey, people have issues right? The payoff for both is really incredible.
Not a big fan of this genre of animé, but Pandora Hearts is pretty god damn addictive, reminded me of Eureka Seven. Both have a male & female protagonists who eventually fall in love ( Eureka & Renton / Oz & Alice ) as well as a mixture of other genres including action, adventure & mystery.
both animes have vast storylines with amazing character driven stories. the main grows into himself in both animes while the anime itself shows the problems that other tertiary characters have to deal with. both create a great anime that is fun to watch, blassreiter is a bit more dark and has stronger themes that E7 but both still share alot of similarities
While they may not seem very similiar on the surface, both Eureka Seven and Cowboy Bebop share a common love of 'western' pop culture. Everyone from John Coltrane to the Beastie Boys is either name-dropped or referenced in both series, while character's designs referernce famous characters from English-language film. Both drink deeply from American and British pop culture and have great music too.
Dragonaut will remind you Eureka Seven every moment while watching it. We have mechas, we have a newbie boy and experienced girl as a main characters, we have great airships, we have crazy enemies and we have a problem with the destruction of the Earth.
Reideen may not have the same unique feel to it, and it also may lack the sort of emotional draw of E7, but Reideen features great 3DCG, smooth animation, and plenty of action...
The series is also based on aliens with giant robots fighting against humans with giant robots, although it technically wasn't that simple in E7, it still occurs...
Also, there is a love story between the main character and another girl, although it was blatantly introduced in the first (and only so far) intro, it is very subtle in the series, and has not even come up yet, despite being pretty far in...
Reideen 2007 is a series based on a Classic that I have not seen, so I can't tell you if it's faithful to the original or not...
The series is one of my favorites overall, despite it being hard to get due to its lack of support, it comes out on random dates, and you're lucky if you find it while checking fansub.tv's front page...
The encodes are Decent from Huzzah, and the subbing is pretty good too, just don't expect the best in the world, if you can go RAW, I can't because I don't know Japanese, but it would probably be the best option if you do...
Reideen 2007 is a great series, don't pass this one up... read more
Guy with a dream, girl with a dream, starts off small, ends up big, involves motorcycles being driven with a far off backdrop in ep1, robots, space, extremely powerful person that just happens to be powerful for entertainment, main character looks like anemone, breasts... watch the breasts...
Hmm.... where can I start with this one? Maybe the fact that when I saw a magazine ad for Innocent Venus, Sana reminded me of Eureka. So I went to look up the series, and found out they have the same voice actress! Now besides that, I'd say the design of Sana is somewhat similar to Anemone as far as physical appearance, and Jo is almost an exact copy of Dominique's appearance! Both shows are about a girl that everyone's trying to use for her powers, mechas, and changing/saving the world. Oh yeah, and don't forget the rebel group of pirates. I guess you could say Shiba is similar to Holland, and Hee Jin to Talho, at least as far as personality and position in the show. Anyways, I basically see Innocent Venus as Eureka Seven's sibling who has fewer episodes and isn't as complex and love-y. read more
Both Jinki: Extend and and Eureka Seven are "different" takes on the Mecha Anime Genre, but very similar. Both involve "young" pilots of Mechas (Eureka Seven has Renton and Eureka, Jinki: Extend has Aoba, Akao, Elnie etc), and both involve older Mecha Pilots as well (Eureka Seven has Holland , Matthieu, Hilda, etc. Jinki: Extend has Ryouhei, Genta, Mel J. Vanette , etc). Both shows have Mecha battles very different then other mecha shows (Eureka Seven the mechas fly through the sky on "ref boards" and fight like that[fast paced], while Jinki: Extend is ground based [slower paced then Eureka Seven], but the fighting is different then other mecha shows). Both have two "factions" of groups with Mecha's placed up against each other (but it's not "black" verses "white" there is a large grey area in both, not extacty "Good" verses" Evil" but rather "Good guy leader" verses "bad guy leader" with people who follow them and don't really know everything)and both have intense, heavy plots that go all over the place, but tie in at the end very nicely. While both shows have very different plots, they still have similar ideas behind them. If you like Eureka Seven then watch Jinki: Extend and vice versa! You will enjoy it! read more
Both have a peppy, healthy boys who have a strong passion that's rivaled by few. Unfortunately, outward forces prevent them from doing as they please.... or even what's considered the norm!
However.... a female visitor(for one it's an intruder) comes into their lives and eventually becomes the sole(much to both of their chagrins) reason to doing what they want to do. Obviously, this means romance.
Interestingly enough, both end similar in that they're QUITE different from what the initial beginning impression would leave. And.... they're both HIGHLY satisfying, and quite fulfilling.
Edo Rocket has TONS and LOADS of tasteful humor that, instead of relying on "otaku-centric" uses their own universe for it. This.... makes the first few eps, a bit dry. Later eps will have you throwing fits! What's so brilliant about this humor is that it NEVER screws up the dramatic parts, nor does it lightly interfere. Also, the heroine is slightly different in that she's not a "social/emotional bumpkin" and has great fun with the cast. But... her attraction to the hero is HIGHLY similar.
Eureka Seven has.... mecha. Which, could be a plus or minus for some. The hero isn't.... AS lively or spirited as the hero from Edo, but shares the same drive and commitment. His powers to accomplish his mission is limited at first, but grows steadily. The heroine grows the most out of ALL the characters, which... might sound painful but makes a HUGE pay-off.
Romantically, Eureka Seven's power is rivaled by few, but development-wise, Edo Rocket greatly resembles it. read more
Both have very similar characters. Renton is just like Agito: sometimes stupid and funny but very heroic and brave when needed. Eureka is very similar with Tula: both are different from normal people, sometimes strange and heroic. In this movie main characters are two young people just like in Eureka seven. I find these very similar.
Both have protagonists who undergo events(many of those events are unclear at first), which coerces them to change themselves radically to, both survive, and achieve their goal(s).
Both stories are quite mysterious in the beginning, but become clearer through clever, and acceptable explanations. The twists all come fruition during the climax.
Both have great art(more so leaning towards Kara), and relatively captivating soundtracks.
KnK 4's central mystery directly relates to it's prequels and doesn't answer anything other than that... KnK 4 shows how the lead gets to where she is, throughout the majority of the overall plot, but doesn't describe much else.
Eureka Seven's development of character is a primary, but not the only focal point. Also the events revolving around the plot, are explained wholesomely, but still haphazardly. read more
Both have similarity on character development, especially between the main characters. Both are mecha anime. Moreover, both of their mecha can interact with main characters and providing same reason for their fighting.... Protect the Love one.
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.
These two are the same because they both have-
The two main characters have a little relationship.
Both series have a goal.
Both main males are ordinary school boys.
Both main females are a different being.
While the stories are incredibly different I get the same kind of excitement from these anime.
* Eureka Seven is full of action-packed flying mechas and battles while Bakuman's action is set in the everyday as the characters struggle and tension to become manga artists. While Eureka Seven has fast moving battles scenes it also strangely seems more talky and goes into long winded explanations every once in a while, but Bakuman keeps conversations short and to the point, making each episode move quickly.
* Both have a very sweet and awkward love story which part of what drives the stories but is not the focus of the plot. Making these both great for the Not Mushy Romantic.
* The humor is wonderful! Bakuman brings in lots of other manga and anime references (Fu-sion Ha!) and Eureka Seven's laughs come from the awkward love and the failings of our hero.
* You will cheer on the characters following their joy, triumphs and hardships along the way.
* Because of the subject matter of Eureka Seven, it is darker and more grown up their the young main characters.
This may seem like an odd mix, but I've tested the recommedation on a hardcore Eureka Seven fan, and he has been converted to a Bakuman follower!  read more
Both animes have a character shrouded in mystery and both of them have another character who loves them whole heatedly in one way or another. The plot is surprisingly similar in many ways. However these similarities aren't felt until the end of the series. If i would compare these two, I'd say these two animes both contain the same plot while one took the dark and mysterious approach the other one took a more childish and lighthearted approach. At the end of the day, both contain the same deep meaning and may leave you with many hours to reflect on them.
Both shows are about rebel battleships with interesting crew which main hero joins, set in postapocalyptic future, on a planets which survived environmental disaster and are similar but not quite to the modern earth. Both involve protagonist growing up.
The more i watched dennou coil and eureka seven, the more it reminded me of eachother. the illegals and Coralians seemed so similar. there are even human like ones in dennou coil and eureka seven. Also, the Scub Coral reminded me of the coil domain. i think if you liked dennou coil, you might like eureka seven.
