There are very definite plot parallels to ''Film/BenHur'', ''Film/TheTenCommandments'', and especially ''Film/LogansRun''.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtShift: Eden and the Moon are, for the most part, crisply-rendered CGI environments. Earth, on the other hand, features extensive hand-painted backgrounds and a generally more organic feeling.


* RoadMovie: After crash-landing in Las Vegas, Takeru and Biz drive 2400 miles to get to Cape Canaveral. They make the journey with [[CosyCatastrophe no problems whatsoever]] thanks to Nissin Cup Noodles.

Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Anime/{{Dallos}}'' -- both works are about revolutions led by youth in colonies on the far side of the Moon. The bracelets of Eden are analogous to the headbands of Monopolis, and seeing the Earth for the first time is a climactic event in both stories. ''Freedom'' offers more closure and a detailed look at conditions on Earth.
