Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Higashi no Eden Recommendations
The shows have plots which feel similar to eachother with their focus on secet organizations, conspiracy and mystery. They are also both produced by Production IG so they have a similar look and feel.
Ghost in the shell is made by the same of EOTE director kenyi kamiyama.
It doesnt have a lot of humour or romance, but it offers you a awesome goverment conspiracy story, awesome action/thriller scenes and a complex storyline wich makes this one of the best the anime industry has to offer.
basically HNE is 20 years before SAC...HNE explains how the SAC tech stuff are invented and Juiz is well a "older" version of Tachikomas(both voiced by the same Voice Actress in Japanese) I think most SAC fans will enjoy Higashi no Eden :3
