Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo Recommendations
Directed by the great Fukuda, both are masterpieces of anime-saving level separated only by time.
-Opening animation similarly features familiar scenes triggering memories of Gundam Seed but not quite the same.
-Heavy utilization of caricatures in an attempt to portray discrimination, betrayal and jealousy, firmly believing they succeeded.
-Features very expansive settings with endless possibilities yet somehow only focus on a tiny cast.
-Main characters are logic-defying, utterly stubborn in whatever they do, spearheaded by extreme stupidity yet never learn anything which invokes audience empathy from their teenager days, adding a unique layer of depth to character writing
-If you're ever confused, there's always a point of self-insertion in Jesus
They're both made by Mitsuo Fukuda
Cross Ange like to pay homage to this, a lot. More than it really should.
Coordinators and Humans = Norma and Humans: They don't like each other.
