Gasaraki, Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG Recommendations
For political theorists out there who enjoy engaging with ideas such as restructuring society, these two anime share common elements. At the macro-level of society, various actors with grand ideologies at hand plan to reshape society, or at least, to prepare the grounds for the next stage in its development. At the micro-level of society, civil unrest, clandestine political gamesmanship, and the threat of military action from foreign actors all threaten to push everything toward the brink of chaos.
If you're interested in performances motivated by civil unrest, i.e. grand politics, then moving from one to the other should appeal to you.
