Both are done by the same studios and have very similar animation, and the 'family' feeling amongst crew members in both series is very strong, particularly at the beginning.

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.

Mecha anime, mixture of humor, mysterious "aliens", a large cast of unique individuals, not to mention both take place on a devastated planet.

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

Deep, thoughtful, but also light at times. Both these animes have strong plots and characters and feature interesting applications of the stereotypical mecha genre

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.

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.

A youthful romance develops on a rebel airship with an eccentric crew and a charismatic captain. Although similar, they are not "alike." Still, if you enjoy one, you are likely to enjoy the other.

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. 
report Recommended by Iahel
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.

FLCL was definately not as complex, long, or developed as Eureka 7, but both FLCL and Eureka 7 have coming of age stories lead by the development of very similar young male leads.

If you liked the first dozen episodes of Eureka 7, FLCL is a quick anime that's easy to digest and enjoy.

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.

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.

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!

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  read more

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. 
report Recommended by nate23nate23
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.

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.

After watching Eureka Seven, it instantly reminded me of Voices of a Distant Star.

- Both protagonist in each story share a deep bond and love for one another, and are around similar ages (teens).

- Sci-fi & drama: Involve similar battling concepts using robots (Tracers/LFO's) for combat.

- Both take place in the future

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 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.

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 ^^

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.

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.

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  read more

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
