Both of these shows show the effects of war on a world. But while Future Boy Conan presents a much lighter mood, NTHT tells its story by directly presenting the harsh realities of war. Nonetheless, both shows hold similar themes that will most likely attract a specific crowd. So if you liked one, try the other.

Another classic by miyazaki, the whole scheme is kinda like Laputa. And there is also this good vs evil thing in this one too. And lots of "teachings" like all miyazakis films have. Alltogether solid, pleasant and also thinking inducing anime. A must see for all Miyazaki fans!

They are both amazing adventure stories based with lots of sailing and a real world setting. They both have young male and female protagonists. Both series have roots in a planned but never-produced anime based on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

These anime are very similar in many aspects. Both feature a post-apocalyptic world featuring a boy and girl main character. Both feature the boy having to protect the the girl from some danger and politics. Both feature serious elements as well as lighthearted elements at times. Conan is done by Hayao Miyazaki, and so features a lighter tone that it wraps it's more serious elements up in. Green Legend Ran is a bit more serious and features some graphic violence, romantic themes, and even some downright pervyness at times, so is more "grown up" in it's feel. But both are very similar in many ways.  read more

Both anime feature children who have to survive in a world with adult themes going on and politics. Both involve character development over a period of time. Both involve very good people behind the anime. In the case of Kemono no Souja Erin, masterful writer Uehashi Nahoko who also wrote Moribito, is behind the story, in the case of Mirai Shounen Conan, master director Hayao Miyazaki is the director of the series. Both have very good stories involving children who must come to terms with adult realities in their worlds while not loosing heart and keeping a sense of lighheartedness in the face of aversion.

Both have same playful and adventurous atmosphere and feature imaginitive aircraft/mecha designs. Some of the character's movements and slapstick humor of Xabungle seem to pay homage to Miyazaki's Conan or even Castle of Cagliostro.

Both are from Hayao Miyazaki. Both are set in post apocalyptic world. Both have the same theme of protecting the environment. Mirai Shounen Conan is a series of 26 episodes. So that is a bonus!

Adventure time!! Leaving home to go on a grand adventure, seeing places they've never imagined, and thwarting the bad guys. Old school shows that dont lack quality.

Both shows start in an isolated location and we experience the daily lives of people there, but then a a blue haired girl shows up and the main character goes off on an adventure to explore the world.

Both are anime with an emphasis on characters and the emotional effects of war and dark fantasy.

The plot is similar: -technological advancements ruined our planet -the ground/continents sank beneath the ocean -the humans that survived are battling for/against world domination -protagonist is peace and nature loving, as well as very active personality

Similar feel to Future Boy Conan. Both are great adventure stories. 
report Recommended by mcnaz
Well, both started with the boy finding the girl and then the bad guys comes after the girl for her connection with (her father in Giniro no Kami, her grandfather in Conan). Then the boy goes on a journey to save the girl. They also share how that the world was once destroyed because of technology and they now live a harsh life with nature, but there are still people who want to recover the old past. I thought they are very similar. I prefer Future Boy Conan Over Giniro no Kami.

"Future Boy Conan" and "Fantastic Children" are both sprawling adventure stories propelled by brave kids. Both series share many similar characters. Conan (of FBC) and Thoma (of FC) are similar in their easy-going and naturally athletic. Each show has its own dark-haired damsel in distress in Lana (FBC) and Helga (FC). " Future Boy Conan" and "Fantastic Children's" also both contain numerous fantastic and epic settings. Many of the locales depicted are heavily entrenched within nature and provide a gorgeous viewing experience.

Similar world feel and involving technology and weapons and a despotic dictator.. TBWStW feels like it is somewhere just prior to WWII and a bit of "steampunk" feel but Conan's recovering post apocalyptic world also has a touch of "steampunk." Despite the fantasy aspect of "special powers" The Boy Who Saw the Wind is possibly a bit more realistic than Mirai Shounen Conan. Both are excellent
