If you like the Angel Sanctuary serie then you should see Earthian. In Angel sanctuary the main chacarters trying to figure out who he is and in Erthian one of the main charecter (black wings) trying to figure out if he is good or evil. both series are trying to help mankind. In both series you will see alot of butiful wings and alt of emotions. In erthian they are two guys that are inlove and live together while in Angel sanctuary it's a brother and a sisster that falls inlove.

Earthian and Angel Sanctuary share the same general premise: angelic creatures set on earth engaged in a battle of cosmic proportions. More, both series have said supernatural entities acknowledging human emotions especially forbidden romantic relationships: in Earthian between two males and in Angel Sanctuary between siblings.

However, there is one catch -- this girl named Nanoka is his sister, who he has not seen in years. Knowing that their forbidden love will always be scrutinized by society; will Koushirou and Nanoka be able to resist the temptation?

I recommend Angel Sanctuary and Koi Kaze because they both center around unlikely love interests. Both animes feature a serious look at incestual relationships between a brother and sister and how they deal with their feelings, society, and the repercussions of such a relationship. If you're looking for an atypical love overcoming all odds type of story, these two animes are a good place to start. Besides the taboo love themes though, the main difference between the two is that Angel Sanctuary is heavily fantasy based, while Koi Kaze is a set as a reality drama.

The reason for recommending the two series is for the motif of incest. While not having much else in common, you should check out Koi Kaze if you liked the sibling love motif in Angel Sanctuary.

Princess Rouge and Angel Sanctuary both feature strong love themes... with a number of supernatural obstacles standing in their way. While Angel Sanctuary is a bit more graphic, both are very dramatic anime that will keep you watching to see what happens next.

Da Capo

Da Capo

On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?

Both of these animes deal with an issue which the society does not tolerate. Sibling love. Not sisterly or brotherly love but a love between a man and a woman. You get to see how these characters deal with this forbidden love and eventually accept it instead of running away from the feeling and that feeling eventually leads to incest. But incest is not the big issue that these two animes deal with but rather how they deal with the feeling of love towards their brother/sister (even though they themselves believe it is wrong to have these feelings). I would also like to point out that incest in only implied and there's nothing explicit. One thing to note is that angel sanctuary is only a 3 part ova so it deals with the issue rather early on while Da Capo is 26 eps so it doesn't really deal with the issue till later. So if this sounds intriguing, I suggest you give it a try.
