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)

When i think about these 2 animes at first a fantasy world comes to my mind :) Story always going fast at both of them. And all of our main chars bad at confession as well :)

Both anime are set in fictional world with WWI technology and shows adventures of military unit. 
report Recommended by hajil
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.

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.

Technologically the worlds are similar to our history in the begining of 20th century, a lot of action is around military people, however in FMA the military use alcchemy instead of guns to fight ...

Extremely dense male lead and a strong female lead who tries to convey their feeling to their respective male leads...o yea both have to do with fighting as well

The Main characters in both anime series do not want to get involved in war, but due to their actions manage to get themselves involved in the war.  
report Recommended by Sora-Hikari
The setting of both anime is based on WWII

The story of both anime is a powerful large empire invading small neighboring nation/kingdom

Both anime have a powerful figure that belived to be the saviour of the nation/kingdom, on izetta = The White Magician/Witch, on valkyria = The Valkyrie

On both anime, it turned out that the main character is that powerful figure

The difference is the main character's role... on izetta, the main character role is as the princess of the kingdom, on valkyria, the main character is as the soldiers fightning on frontline

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.

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.

While the settings and stories are completely different, both of them are thoughtful looks at racism and discrimination--and the ways in which love, kindness, and friendship can overcome them. 
report Recommended by mnmike2002
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.

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 
report Recommended by kairi07
Similar Slice-of-Life/War story with a girl who suddenly becomes OP towards the end of the show.  
report Recommended by kvnstv1
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. 
report Recommended by Navizel
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.

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.

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

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.  
report Recommended by Ninjapiratehobo
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.

Both animes are about a war between Galia and a sort of Roman empire. Both deal with a lot of ancient myths and legends. Both of the main girls are the key to end the war.  
report Recommended by Akarioru
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 :)

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.

Both girls from these anime are fighting to protect people in their towns. Their headbands kinda look similar too lol. Anyways, both are great anime. 
report Recommended by shioramen
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.

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.

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.

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  read more

Both anime have the similar feeling to it. Both stories are somehow connected to army. There is romance. Main heroine is somehow different from the others and has a tragic past.

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  read more

Both stories have a lot of characters. Senjou no Valkyria is more of a military story, but it does contain a lot of romance and action. Sailor Moon is more magical.
