Both series has a strong female lead and capable male lead that although the male lead lack in strength, they make up their lack of strength with intellect and charisma. The two does share a lot of similarities. If you like one, you are definitely bound to like the other.
Both series are set in an alternate "world war" scenario, where the main character is forced to command a team of soldiers to fight, despite actually disliking war. The main characters in both are also slightly quirky, sticking out from their comrades and showing great strategy and leadership skills. Valkyria Chronicles has a similar setting to world war 2, with tanks, however Alderamin goes for a slightly 'steampunk' approach with canons, rifles, airships and sword fighting.
The animation style between the two shows also feels slightly similar, and the character designs are often colourful. They both have a similar feel, and if you enjoyed one it's likely you'll enjoy the other. read more
Both take a over look on military battle and strategy. Both have a magic aspect in. They also don't glorify war and show the pain of wars Nejimaki is not as long so story is not as complete but bother very good animes.
Both shows are set on alternative realities (could be compared to 19th-20th century or so) with some magical, supernatural beings while they aren't the only/main focus of the show
Even though the main male characters are a bit different when it comes to their nature they are both great tacticians and were both forced to fight and the setup of story is also somewhat similar. There is also at least one mentally and/or physically strong main female character in both series.
The main focus of both shows is military even though it isn't following the reality that strictly. For example there are plenty of women in the military in both series and overall they aren't that "militarish" after all.
While Valkyria Chronicles can be pretty easily be referred to WWII in Europe there isn't as clear focus on Tenkyou no Alderamin which could be somewhat compared to WWI/preWWI-era when it comes to weapons and tactics.
There are two great powers fighting each other and then there is a small third nation/people trying to survive. In the middle of the great war. read more
Both have similar story and characters. they main characters want to stop the war between two sides. The feeling you egt from Valkyria Chronicles is similar to Allison and Lillia. Both very good anime (well Valkyria is good so far)
The theme/setting is somewhat similar about the past, war, and whatnot. They both have romance, drama, and action. Art style kinda resembles each other, too, in a way. They, also, are very nice anime. :)
Valkyria Chronicles felt like a bit more mature version of Allison & Lillia. If you liked A&L you'll probably enjoy Valkyria. Both of them involve military elements with Valkyria going a bit more in depth. Both of these shows also have very good romantic developments. Both are definitely worth watching!
Both were adapted off their video game counterpart. Because of this, both have a fairly grandiose adventurous plot that you would typically imagine in a rpg video game. Good character development, some side quests, and plenty of cliffhangers to be found. Overall, both accomplish 'that feeling' you get when playing the actual game.
To mine eyes, Izetta is a love child of the game Valkyria Chronicles and Virgin Witch Maria. Valk Chron's alternate history World War 2 setting paired with a near extinct supernatural race/power and Maria's attempting to prevent/end a war as a witch with magic.
I strongly recommend everyone go play Valk Chron (unless you can handle the cheap art style + love triangle added to the anime!) and more people give Izetta a chance; overlooking the light yuri/boobing in the middle. That is all.
Both shows are based on the Second World War and mirror the tale of a single country's struggle to resist a powerful invader (i.e. France/Luxembourg vs. Germany). Both place significant emphasis on the military aspect of their stories, and both include a magical/supernatural element that greatly affects the tide of the war.
Note that while Shuumatsu no Izetta is decidedly blatant in the parallels it draws, Senjou no Valkyria is much looser with its comparisons, with far less stress placed on historicity. Another major difference is in how Shuumatuso no Izetta follows the life of a princess, while Valkyria tells its story through the perspectives of a militia squad. read more
Valkyria chronicles and pumpkin scissors are two show with different stories but with basically the same layout. They're both set in a psuedo-early 1900's war time era with strong female protagonists, a unique supporting male and a odd assortment of characters in a troop.
Though they bot focus on two entirely different themes (and valkyria chronicles is a bit mor immature) you'd probably like one if you liked the other.
In both series, there's a similar background with a time setting roughly close together around the 20th century.
The female protagonist from both series are strong, independent, and always tries to keep her mind ahead of others. She is also involved with an organization dealing with both foreign and local events. With military experience, the main female protagonist is invaluable for its country's efforts.
Both series also features action, drama, comedy, and some romance (less so in Pumpkin Scissors) between certain characters.
Both are alternate realities with a European WWI or WWII kind of feel mixed in with a little super technology. Valkyria Chronicles is a bit more conventional in its relationships whereas Sora no Woto hints at Shoujo-ai (girl/girl love) but never really goes there. Both are beautifully animated.
The theme of military and the supernatural are present in both of these two series. Additionally, there is a secret power that can change the world. Action and comedy are present and as the episodes drags on, a deeper story is revealed.
Valkyria Chronicles also seems like a war and love story and comedy all rolled into one like Toshokan Sensou. These shows have a similar military and comedy feeling. And Inoue Marina is the voice actress of both main protagonists, Kasahara Iku and Melchiott Alicia. Both of them are kinda tsundere and tomboyish, although Alicia looks little bit more feminine. Even other characters of these shows may have common attributes.
Very similar in the nature of the story, action and romance. It's just the setting is a bit different, and Valkyria has a bit of the magic element in it that Toshokan Sensou doesn't. They're both pretty good!
Taking place in a time of warfare, both series focuses on its characters and their experiences as soldiers/pilots during such a crisis.
The main male protagonist is both determined, strong willed, and has combat experience. Despite the odd relationship he has with some of the others, he proves himself to be a capable soldier during critical times of need.
There is an adventurous style the way both series are presented with secrets, revelations, and a past that unfolds itself throughout their stories. Expect stellar action, drama, and also bits of romance.
While Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta takes place in the air and on airship looking things, Senjou no Valkyria: Gallian Chronicles takes place on the land, and with tanks and guns. Both have a romance built around the core plot of action, duty, and major character build up.
Both anime are military, you get addicted to watch them after the first episodes, strategy, action, 100% enjoy with funny parts but both anime also have a bit of sadness and the graphics and colours are very good
I know, one is absolutely space sci-fi and the other is a military ww2 drama, but the basic premise of both comes to be about group of people developing their relationships while overcoming the hardships of war and bias along the way.
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 heavily focused on military action and war
Gallian chronicles follows more of a platoon throughout an entire war while Macross focuses more on a band of surviving humans.
Both are great, the music and themes are unparalleled and the action and story telling is unique.
The story, technology, and races are extremely similar here. If you like Senjou no Valkyria then you will definitely like Last Exile. Other than the love story everything is really similar but with more of an emphasis on planes and flying aircraft in Last Exile where Senjou no Valkyria's world relies on tanks and the like.
Love Military? Love war? Love alternate history? Then, if you've watched either of these anime's, then i'm sure that you're gonna love the other one. Valkyria Chronicles focuses on the alternate world aspect, with tanks etc. and contains some Romance, whereas Zipang focuses on what would happen if you were sent back in time, and had the chance to change history and turn the favor of a war.
War between two countries. Main characters are part of military squads. Their squads accomplished many impossible missions and and earned great reputation. Also both squads have very powerful secret weapon (robot in Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen and tank in Senjou no Valkyria: Gallian Chronicles). However time is different. Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen is in future (not so far from nowadays, their just have primitive robots) and Senjou no Valkyria: Gallian Chronicles is in past, about WW I.
Where as Valkyria Chronicles is more serious and Gate more on the humorous side. The characters are likeable. Great military animes. Gate is still airing but I expect it to satisfy my love for the military just as Valkyria Chronicles did
Though a bit different for Girls und Panzer is a bit lighter, sweet and features younger characters while Senjou no Valkyria, or Valkyria Chronicles in English, is more serious and features older characters, both shows can give you the action and enjoyment that you're looking for with some drama included.
First and foremost both are set on fictional worlds: KG is sci-fi set on the future and VC is set on fictional 1930's europe (actually called "Europa") in a WWI-like era. Both feature awesome female main characters that fight for what is dearest to them against many foes. Both also feature strong relationshsips between the characters and have a feel of fellowship and union. Both feature kick ass heroines with superpowers. They may feel like the show is all about action and such, but the more you watch, the clear it becomes that the shows actually deal with some mature themes.
This anime is what LoGH would be if it was fought on land with the addition of superhumans. Exception being that Maximilian here is an idiototic megalomania, while Reinhard kept his cool most of the time. As for the other side (Gallia/Welkin), is mostly similar to the Alliance in LoGH.
In short, LoGH is a much longer and more serious version of the short and less serious Valkyria Chronicles.
Aside from the time differences, setting differences, and a major technology gap between the two series...this two anime series are quite similar in that both are fighting an oppressive empire, both main characters can be hard to predict, both main character have that "female bodyguard", and both series are top notch above anything else :)
Both feature kick ass females as main characters (altough in 11eyes the protagonist IS a male). Both feature strong love stories set during a period of conflic and how those stories intertwine with one another. Valkyria Chronicles is less dark than 11eyes set during a wartime period where the two main chars have to protect their country and deal with each other at the same time. 11eyes is more dark (rated 17+) with some explicit sexual scenes and ecchi, however the similiarity between these animes is evident once you watch them (most of all when it comes to the characters, and their views of the worl around them) - also, both are set on fictional worlds. read more
Senjou no Valkyria is similar to Rurouni Kenshin because they both feature strong main characters with interesting abilities and skills. While Rurouni Kenshin is historically based, Senjou no Valkyria takes a twist on history. It is different from the Rurouni Kenshin anime because the romance is very satisfying in the end.
Like the Valkyria Chronicles, Escaflowne is at its core a romance story set against a war. Whereas VC has a circa-WWI / WWII era feel to it with a number of fantasy elements thrown in, Escaflowne is an urban fantasy that has a much more traditional high fantasy feel (knights, "dragons", the main character could be said to be doing something resembling magic). Between the two, I would say Escaflowne has a much more sweeping, epic story. Although the animation might be a little dated by today's standards, the story really makes this series. Also, if you enjoy a good movie score, Escaflowne has an epic soundtrack to match its epic story. read more
Series are quiet different, for one they are based in different eras and Berserk is more bloody.
However, if you look over this you can find a similarity. Both shows are about war and a specific group of people that is getting engaged in battles. Both series have wave war action and strategic planning, constantly tryong to come up with effective tactic.
If you like shows about war where strategies and planning are constatnly made, bothe shows will work perfectly.
Both anime features a war story with a whole bunch of characters and some sci-fi elements. The guys in Senjou no Valkyria are very attractive sort of like in Gundam Wing. One difference is that Senjou no Valkyria has more concrete romance in it.
