- Both express the same emotions, sadness and loneliness
- Both have short runtime
- Both use the same plot vehicle to create these emotions, long distance separation of interstellar dimensions
- Both have very undeveloped characters
- Both use the imagery trends of their time, Hoshi no Koe has mecchas. Shelter has moe beauty
- Both put visuals over story and characters, being sort of graphic demos of their era
- I'd go as far to say that both are the same short, just separated by 14 years of progress in animation and different runtime.
- Short animes that deal with similar family theme and nostalgic feel
- Both are set in a near futuristic setting, or at least a little more digitally advanced than our current time
- Both have very beautiful graphics.
I find the storytelling to be similar and I found it sad that noone else recommended this yet so I figured I would. Both follow a lonely main character and tell a story using visuals and memories alone. They're also both quite short.
Porter Robinson, who wrote Shelter, listed Anohana as one of his top favorite anime. It's easy to see the similarities in the two. Both are about loss and hope. Both are huge tearjerkers. A-1 studios made both, so they are definitely similar in terms of artwork.
Both have fantastic soundtrack and beautiful backgrounds, visual effects. Both are related to some kinds of 'dream'. Both are stories related to comets (or asteroid). and a man tries to save the woman he loves.
Garakowa and Shelter explore the idea of enclosed virtual worlds which provide sanctuary for mankind in a post-apocalyptic environment. Both works are high quality productions with a central focus on their musical scores.
Creating the future for ourselves. Locked up in a bubble of our world, we repeat day after day. Two works that seek to deceive us, making us see a hope that the world can change, as their characters have the power to change the world, through digital simulations.
Both are extremely short OVAs that feature an emotionally strong story poured out in just the matter of a few minutes. They both center around the idea of emotions, love, and even loneliness. It's worth a shot to watch both of these, but don't forget your box of tissues.
These two anime both take place in a futuristic sci-fi setting and tell the story of a lonely girl who hasn't made contact with anyone else for years. Both anime are also quite short, yet they manage to convey a lot of emotion in that brief amount of time.
This isn't a music video, this is Queen's song put on a manga video trailer. Each part is good in itself, but what's the point if only a few seconds seem to come together?
In other words, the exact same properties as Shelter.
After watching Flip Flappers I could not help but notice how similar it is to Shelter, as if it took direct inspiration from Shelter (hear me out).
Both anime feature innocent, at first, female teenagers that explore an alternate reality completely unaware, at first, of why this reality exists.
Later on, the protagonists from both series discover the nature of their respective alternative worlds and both anime leave the viewer with open ended questions that don't affect much post-anime reflections. In addition, both anime focus on themes of love (family and friendship love) and parental bonds.
Shelter is much more emotional and focused on ambience, while Flip Flappers is more friendship-y and focused on visuals.
If you liked Shelter, I am sure you will like an extended version of it, which is Flip Flappers. read more
The songs in both works include themes about the decline of society and culture, retaining important memories, and moving forward. Post-apocalyptic landscapes are seen and metaphors are embedded in the visuals.
To me, these are similar for the quality of their music, their animation, and their stories. Shelter might be a one episode story, but it still feels warm from the sadness that the main characters of both shows must feel when they think about their "end of the world" kind of past.
Both anime implement electronic music, the sense of 'escapism', and the feels. if you're not familiar with porter, he and madeon are huge fans of daft punk, but the biggest similarity these two anime share is confusing weebs by supposing they're not anime because their stories aren't written by japanese people.
Both are amongst the top 3 most popular professional standalone AMVs (which is a rare kind since most AMVs are either part of a series or fan-made assemblies of arbitrary anime scenes and music), the remaining one is Interstella5555, the longest music album video ever.
The videos both have a sci-fi setting, On Your Mark has a retro touch whereas Shelter is more futuristic, however the songs and stories are fundamentally different.
Also worth mentioning is that On Your Mark's screenplay was directed by no less than Hayao Miyazaki.
Western musician collaborating with Japanese creatives to craft a music video. One is pretentious and focuses solely on being visually impressive, while the other is fun and contains clever references to the album it was representing upon release.
What happens when humanity is on the brink of extinction? Staking it out in outer space becomes an option. Pale Cocoon expounds on the mundane life of living in space, and can get dull eventually, but features a musical section that is as beautiful as Shelter.
both tug on emotional feelings based on the parent-child relationship.
albeit, Shelter will get it done in 6 min, Amaama to Inazuma will reuse the formula episodically (there's no greater arch) so if you like that feeling it keeps coming as the climax for each episode of sweetness & lightning
Both of these are wonderfully crafted animated music videos that tell an emotional story to beautiful songs. Shelter and Crystal Clear both manage to tastefully deliver on themes of love, loss, and willpower through creative and often stunning animation in a way that is almost sure to leave an impact. If you liked one of these MVs, I definitely recommend you give the other a try! In a nutshell, I'd say that though they're short, both Shelter and Crystal Clear are out of this world (^_−)☆
Both have beautiful artwork that is similar in terms of character design and backgrounds. Although Shelter deals with loss of a loved one and Nagi no Asukara with the complexities of friendship and first love, both have a lonely, nostalgic feel to them.
In both series, the world comes to an end, and society as we know it in Japan collapses, but a woman speaking in Japanese tells the audience that we should don't stop believing and hold on to that feeling. But in Evangelion, it actually makes sense in the story and fits in with the overall themes of the work, and that's why you should watch it.
