What anime did DISTRICT 9 remind you of?

There's a scene in DISTRICT 9 where
Spoiler:
we see an underground spaceship that the Prawns have built. Later we see the ship take off from under the ground.


This scene reminded me of similar scenes in SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO and ARCADIA OF MY YOUTH (the Capt. Harlock origin story).

But the basic premise of
Spoiler:
a human turning slowly into an alien and then going to live among the aliens to hide from the humans
seemed very familiar, too. Does anyone here recall an anime with that premise?

Thanks.

I don't know about those scenes you mentioned, but I certainly thought of Neon Genesis Evangelion during the Mech-suit scenes.

Thanks.
You seem to have a fundamental misunderstanding of the movie, or didn't pay attention. That was the command module that fell from the ship when it came to Earth.

Well, I thought I was paying attention, so I'll chalk it up to "fundamental misunderstanding." Thanks for clearing that up for me.
