While TTGL is much more focused on the actual mecha aspects whereas in Guilty Crown it's just a periphery element, the storytelling has some some similarities. Both main characters, Simon and Shu, go through a crazy amount of hardships and losses especially with those close to them. They each have a role model that they look up to and want to eventually become, and both characters go through a significant amount of character development, changing from weak-willed little boys to mature and respectable adults.

So what to say? At first i wouldn't have thought that those two series have something in common.. at least not this much. But, the more i went ahead and watched Guilty Crown, and the more i felt somehow of a bond between this and TTGL.

TTGL is a lot more over the top, the drawing styles are no where near the same, and the story lines are slightly different.... But the similarities are unmistakeable.

If you liked TTGL then you'll probably think guilty crown is a cheap imitation whose story isn't even close to the same.... (Can't help fanboys & girls lol)

It has the same story-telling, the same treason and the same end.
It's the same anime in other universum.
