Fantastic Children's sci-fi side deals with reincarnation, where as Noein's deals with multiple dimensions, but in both you get to see multiple versions of the same characters. The key difference is that characters interact with their younger/older selves in Noein.
Both series alternate between serious sci-fi and lighthearted, slower paced character-focused sections. Noein's 'down time' parts have more of a slice-of-life feel, but the blend of sci-fi and everyday actions means the two give off a similar vibe.
Noein is like a jazzed-up version of Fantastic Children.
A group of mysterious people have something to do with other dimensions, and they get involved with some kids, including an important girl they are looking for. Some of them give up on the mission along the way; there's sci-fi, and mystery (and other related things that might be spoilers).
They're both somewhat mature series, with lots to think about, and some quiet yet vivid drama, and they don't have a lot of action or romance.
Have a somewhat unusual art style.
Incidentally, they are both original series (not based off anything) which may be why they both have a strong cohesiveness throughout the whole. read more
Noein and Fantastic Children both plays on the science fiction theme with its futuristic setting. They come with a package of characters.
Their setting not only focuses on a setting in the future but also revolves around dimensions that unlocks mysteries to answers. Important characters are introduced throughout both series as the character seeks what they are looking for.
Both series also contain action, drama, and romance with minimal amount of comedy.
Both series focus on groups of enigmatic black-clad beings taking part in inter-dimensional and scientific affairs that are initially unknown. Running alongside said scientific stories are young children who have bigger connections to the groups than what is immediately apparent. These stories with the children provide key emotional moments and give the characters connections with the group. Both shows also have difficult lexicons to understand, with full attention required to get the best out of the stories. Additionally, both soundtracks are absolutely beautiful.
The stories of Fantastic Children and Please Save My Earth involve reincarnations attempting to make amends for their past sins. And love is an important aspect of both.
Fantastic Children cannot compare to the depth of Please Save My Earth's characters, but it's still an excellent series, regardless. Just make sure you don't judge it based on its sluggish first half - its story only truly getting going in the absorbing last half of its story.
Both Please Save My Earth and Fantastic Children are both sci-fi series that deal with the theme of reincarnation of the main characters from lives past and how it affects them currently. They both have their own takes on things, Fantastic Children involves more fantastical science concepts while Please Save My Earth involves more psychic powers, but they both have the similar reincarnation theme. If you watched the Please Save My Earth OVA and you were upset at the blunt ending, Fantastic Children should serve your needs well. If you read the Please Save My Earth manga and want something similar, try Fantastic Children.
Well these two anime's how much they are alike that much they are different!
The art it's similar, and the story around the main protagonist is alike, they both train martial arts, and later on they find themselfs in a need to aid a girl. Where she is the key to achieve some peoples plan so a group of people are after her.
On this journey our hero makes some friends and some enemies also.
From this point on the difference emerge because the atmosphere in Now and Then, Here and There is much darker and has a lot of violence, blood, torture and some serious psychological side effects, while Fantastic Children is a slow-paced anime. read more
Adventure show that looks at first glance as a kid's show because the main character is a kid and the drawn style, but it's an actually a sci-fi show about science and how far and dangerous can be when it reach the limits.
Even though these two series are quite different in many ways, they both deal with a group of special/different children whose past and future look kinda gloomy and the present is full of mystery. Both anime raise a lot of questions at the beginning which will keep you watching till the end.
(The ending of Fantastic Children is much more satisfying though - in terms of answering the questions it raises.)
And they are both fun to watch.
Rather mild stories that revolve around a girl who sees a special place in her dreams, and the ones who love her. They also share sci-fi themes, other dimensions, betrayal, a degree of wistfulness, and the desire to go to a certain faraway place.
Both shows have quite the slow start and the art style is more fitting for a children's show, but once the story starts to unfold, you could appreciate both shows for their unusual and well crafted stories, and for the mature overtones of the series.
Both shows have artstyle, suitable for a show aimed for the children, but they do both explore much more darker and mature topics and issues which does make both shows even more appreciated from more mature audience.
Both give off different vibes than initially apparent. The vagueness of both these series slowly but surely gets light shed upon them creating unparalled plot twists, creating an adventure never thought to be concieved based on the first impression.
Both employ reincarnation and past lives ingeniously.
Air is shorter, more moe-oriented, a bit easier to take in, but has a HUGE emotional impact at the end. It's also dubbed better.
Fantastic Children's story is galactic size, the mystery is stretched out to the halfpoint, but it's plot is easier to understand as a whole.
Fantastic Children and Toward the Terra resemble each other much more than one would think. They both contain that adventurous, epic story-line while throwing in a mix of supernatural powers and time travel. Characters from both anime are adamantly searching for something that is important to them, one of which is a way to return to their homeland. These anime are also a bit old-fashioned in design, yet they're brilliant and refreshing at the same time.
"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.
The soundtrack and overall pacing makes me think about it, kinda slow with a lot of human melodrama but still nice.
The characters share characteristics too and are searching for someone/something/someplace. All in all two fantasy/sci-fi shounen.
