Synopsis:

Marina is a fifteen-year-old mermaid who lives at the bottom of the sea; alongside her sisters, loving father and dolphin friend she explores sunken ships and gazes at human treasures, all the while longing to see the outside world. In secret, Marina swims to the surface one evening and sees a beautiful prince that she instantly falls in love with – but the evil sea witch uses her powers to sink the prince’s ship, casting him into the cold water below. Marina saves her love but remains hidden while he comes to on the shore, leaving her yearning to see him again. To fulfill her desires Marina visits the sea witch and exchanges her beautiful singing voice for human legs – but there’s a catch. If the prince marries another, the morning after Marina will die of a broken heart and will turn into sea foam...

While Elemi no Koi has a simpler and less tragic story, in essence both of these animes are sad tales about impossible love between a human and a nonhuman. So, if you like that type of stories, check them both.

InuYasha

InuYasha

Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.

These two titles are both similar because their plots revolve around a girl who falls in love with a man from a land far away from her own. Just when these girls think they have gotten close to the guy that they like, they realize they are part of a love triangle.

Both shows are old fairy tail movies about girls who have to break a spell without speaking plus another task. Mermaid has more tragedy to it where Swan keeps things on the light side but if you liked one you should enjoy the other.

Sirius no Densetsu

Sirius no Densetsu
  • Movie (1 ep x 110 min)
  • 1981

Fire Children and the Children of the Water can never be together. Long ago, the God of Water and Goddess of Fire existed together as one entity, until the jealousy of the God of Wind drove a wedge into their relationship. They separated, and it became the law of the earth that their people must never see each other again. Now that the new heirs to the thrones are soon to be crowned, the Prince of the Sea is drawn to the ocean’s surface and meets the beautiful maiden that is the Princess of Fire. A fantastic love is formed between the two, but the flavor is bittersweet when all they can do is hide the fact that they have met. Love is powerful, but is theirs strong enough to withstand the will of the Gods?

They are romantic tregedies so i think if you liked Nigyo hime then you would like Sirius no densetsu and vice versa. both are old movies with pretty animation, two creatures from totally different worlds could easily fall in love.

Windaria

Windaria
  • Movie (1 ep x 105 min)
  • 1986

In a land filled with magic and mystery, two rival kingdoms are readying for war: Isa, the beautiful water-laden city, and Paro, the industrialized wasteland. Windaria follows the tale of two sets of lovers: Marin and Izu, a young pair of farmers who are devoted to one another, and Ahanas and Jill, princess and prince of the rival kingdoms. With war approaching, these star-crossed lovers will experience the true depth of tragedy as they struggle to survive.

Windaria and Mermaid Princess are two entirely different stories, but both have a common similarity: they are romantic tragedies with a deceptively age-friendly tone. Just trust me on this one.
