D.N.Angel

D.N.Angel

For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!

both animes have a conection in the action area. There are plenty of battles and quarells. Very little Romance, love triangles, and confusion. Great animation style and charrectors. D.N Angel is more of a tale about a teenage boy who has love problems... while Angelic Layer is about a girl with mommy issues.

Both Angelic Layer and Gakuen Alice are about a little girl who wants to try her best and prove herself in a world she has never seen before so she can be with the person she cares about. Both series have a cute and dramatic side. If you like the tone of one, you will probably like the other too.

.hack//SIGN

In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?

Hack Sign and Angelic layer are both series about games, in Hack it's MMORPG in Angelic Layer it's (tabletop fighting?!!). In both series the life of the main characters revolve around the game and the events in the game. Angelic Layer is more of an action series while Hack is more mysterious.

Both series are about individuals who vie for power by fighting one another with the use of dolls. Magic powers are used in Unbreakable Machine Doll while the dolls in Angelic Layer are much more technological.

Petite Princess Yucie

Petite Princess Yucie

Eighteen years ago, the Platinum Tiara, which gives its wearer magical powers, was reassembled. At the same time, five "Princesses" were born, to the worlds of Earth, Heaven, Celestrial, Fairy, and Hell. These five princesses quit maturing at the age of 10, and are all competing to become THE Platinum Princess so they can grow up. This story is centered on Yuuchi, from the kingdom of Earth.

They may not seem similar at first glance, but Petite Princess Yucie and Angelic Layer are close cousins where it counts - focus and tone.

Both focus on determined young girls (the girls in Yucie might as well be twelve) chasing a dream, both focus on friendship and teamwork, and both are ultimately about growing up and family (fathers and daughters for Yucie, mothers and daughters for Angelic Layer). They also both feature romances that are not central to the overall story without feeling tacked-on in the process.Mostly, though, both leave you with a similar feeling when you're done: a feeling of warm and fuzzy triumph.
