Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou Recommendations
I actually watched Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita a few months ago, but when I finished Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou I felt like it gave off kind of the same feeling. You know, when everyone look happy and take life as it comes there's this omnipresent melancholic feeling that never really disappears. The characters are the last people on earth, they know it, but they still manage to overcome this feeling and live their life with a sincere smile, and I find it both really sad and heartwarming.
Oh, and the op and ed of both shows are absolute dope by the way.
Though these shows are near polar opposite aesthetically, they have a lot in common thematically. Both shows are introspective, reflective and in many ways satirical. Both offer a distant perspective of humanity's successes and failings through post-apocalyptic setting. Both shows are light-hearted on the surface, but neither is without its darker undertones.
Both are about a slice of life series in the future after humanity's fall, although the world and colors in Jinrui are much friendlier. But both are a little bit philosophical, calming and bittersweet.
Both shows take place after the decline of civilization and touch on some deep, somewhat dark themes in a light-hearted manner.
These thought-provoking shows both offer a post apocalyptic world to explore, gradually answering your questions and constantly making you ask more. Making full use of their premises, the level of detail and variety in the worlds of Humanity has Declined and Girls' Last Tour is as impressive as their characters' philosophical explorations.
Both anime are set in a post-apocalyptic world and have moe girl(s) as protagonists. In both those girls actually do cutre things at face value. Both have thought provoking dialogs and arcs dealing with humanity, human society, and reasons for why they declined. Both are very serious at heart and light at the presentation. Both have quite sarcastic and snarky commentary by one of the girls. In a nutshell, both have a very similar mood and message, despite different presentation choices.
The main differences is that Jinru wa Suitai leans towards subversive comedy, while Shoujo Shuumatsu is more melancholic. This is reflected in the color schemes
