Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Recommendations
Aside from the clear aesthetic similarities due to director [[Mitsuo Fukuda]] being the creative producer of Cross Ange
Both series feature two groups of humans with one heavily discriminating over the other. In SEED, the coordinators with their superior abilities are considered monsters by "Natural" humans because they are genetically engineered. In Cross Ange, on the other hand, most humans can use the power of Mana and discriminate and imprison those who are born without the ability to use Mana who are called Norma. From one point of view Norma are inferior from their inability to use Mana however this perception can be turned on its
Cross Ange = Gundam Seed
1.Openings between the 2 are scary alike
2.Main characters Mecha look the same
3.Coordinators and Naturals and Norma and Mana They both have to different type of humans that dislike each other
4.Both main find themselves fighting to survive
Note:Sunrise made them both
Holy Cthulhu. Do I even need to explain why I'm recommending this anime?
Just watch the Cross Ange opening. Don't even have to watch an episode to understand. Sunrise is LITERALLY spoonfeeding the viewers the influence of Gundam Seed.
Similar animation styles, art, characters (YES TUSK, I'M LOOKING AT YOU), romance, mechas (this is a no-brainer), revolution plot, blahblahblahblah~
And yes, this anime is definitely going to be enjoyable for those who loved how flamboyant Gundam Seed was. This anime should be the true successor to the series instead of the mistake called Seed Destiny.
