Seihou Bukyou Outlaw Star, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Recommendations
Similar character setting, older brother, younger boy, a girl or 2 at the side. They both inherit some universe beating machines and go far and wide throughout the universe for a girl.
- Main characters piloting a red piece of machinery that exceed the potential of all other ships
- A younger guy following around some older guy calling him his aniki
- a soft spoken girl who first appears encased in a box
- a homosexual who handles ship parts
- a vicious furry who tries to kill the main characters but ends up as part of the crew
It's practically the same thing.
Outlaw Star has a similar character structure and epic battles, with a less whiny kid sidekick!
Remarkably similar crisp art styles, camera angles, themes (doing crazy stuff, exceeding expectations, pumping music, melee combat in space, having a unique ship, etc) make it a sure-thing that if you like one, you'll like the other.
Gurren Lagann took everything Outlaw Star did right and improved its story on it.
There are too many similarities both plot wise and character wise.
1- Both are stories of two brothers without a bloodline.
2- Both have epic space fights.
3- Both are stories of a crew that built for same reason
4- Both are making philosophy on human nature and machines
5- Both are road stories with their own way
6- Way too much similarities I can not list in there because of Spoiler restriction generally plot wise
In an epic tale, there are epic characters and storytelling. For both TTGL and Outlaw Star, they offer exactly what you hope to get.
The main cast of both series consists of characters who excels in combat and various arts of war. They involve a setting with science fiction themes. There's a lot of humorous dialogues but also the same time tragic moments. From those moments though are memorable events that captures the mood of their perspective settings.
In both series, the characters do own their own weaponry in the battle consisting of their own signature names/brand that allows them to go head to head
