Groundbreaking film. Amazing storyline set in a post-apocalyptic Japan. As well as biker gangs and military action the film explores deeper psychological and philosophical themes. The visual aspect of the animation is stunningly good even by modern standards. A must see for any film fan. Directed by Katsuhiro Otomo -1988

Animation and graphics are very good, I could even say a whole lot better composed then in FF. If you liked the FF series, this is something you should watch.

Both anime have a similar setting, as they are set in a futuristic and technologically-advanced world. Both have a similar atmosphere and cyberpunk elements. The main female characters of both movies have a similar look, and they are both part of a special police task force that hunt terrorists. The background designs and details of both anime are also quite similar. The biggest difference between the two is that "Ghost in the Shell" has cyborgs, while "Wonderful Days" doesn't.

The events of both movies happen in huge, technologically-advanced, futuristic cities. In both anime, the main characters are being hunted by the authorities. Also, both anime have rich and detailed background art. Apart from these similarities, both anime also have similar plots, as they deal with the lower classes of the society rioting and protesting against the rich class. Both have some action and violence, as well as dystopian and cyberpunk elements, which give both anime a similar tone.

Both anime have similar settings, as they are both set in futuristic, technologically-advanced cities.

So, plot-wise, as well as settings-wise, these anime are similar. They also have a similar tone, cyberpunk and dystopian elements, as well as numerous action scenes. The main difference is that Appleseed has robots, while Wonderful Days doesn't.

Both have strong leading female MCs have a childhood in which both MCs involve themselves in some form of rebellion against the "utopian" society they exist in before giving themselves over to it in adulthood.

Both set in a not-so-distant reality you don't know much how it came to be. You may enjoy the similar mechanical technology design, although Wonderful Days' sky theme is backgrounded. Both have very good art and music and well placed CGI, one important difference to mention is that while one is focused on developing the characters the other is in reaching the story's climax.

The events of both anime in a technologically-advanced city, ruled by a class of elites, while a large part of Earth has been deserted after a catastrophe. In both anime, one of the main characters is a female special agents, who must stop evildoers that threaten the well-being of this city. Both anime have similar animation and overall mood.

Both are cyberpunk, and having sci-fi futuristic scenes set with older traditions and culture which gives a rich atmosphere.

Despite the difference in graphics, format and ending, the main theme remains the same - surviving after the global catastrophe and people's faith in better future, doesn't it? =)

Very similar setting: dark dystopic and cyberpunk. The atmosphere has a similar feel to it. Each anime has an environment which has been destroyed and characters who live in protective societies. Oppressed citizens controlled by the government. They both have outstanding visuals that blend 2D animation with CGI beautifully.

Cyberpunk. Similar animation style that blends both 2D with CGI. GitS has more dialogue while Wonderful Days relies more on the atmosphere to present it's ideas. 
report Recommended by Danish
The general feeling of the worlds are kind of the same, and you'll have the same kind of emotional response during each movie. Again, you have 2 boys and a girl who are childhood friends, but where The Place Promised does not involve a love triangle, Wonderful Days does. What they share is a sadness to the love story, and a sense of lonliness. The same kind of soundtrack and silence and general directing/artistic style are present in both

Both these anime revolve around a type of "utopia" in which people live in, which outside the boundaries of the city, it is inhabitable by humans. Both also have a type of robot or life form which are required to help society run.

Both give you the same feeling. Its about life in the future in a dystopian world. Very beautiful art in both.  
report Recommended by Orulyon
Both animes are in a post apocalyptic world, where the humans are surrounded by machines and technology. The goal of the main character is precisely the same in the two animes: to be able to see the sky one day.

They both rely heavily on CG but the work is exquisite. The stories are also in similar settings, the desolate future. If you liked the animation style and storyline of Appleseed then you may want to try out Wonderful Days.
