Tsukihime and Aquarian Age have two main things in common. The first thing is a good romance story. One that doesn't involve comedy or harem in any way. It stays serious and has a realistic feel to it. The second thing is that there is actually some action happening on the background to support it. It interacts really well with the characters, giving them the necessary development to draw you into the story. There are not your typical romance anime and are both some of my favorites!
Even though Lunar Legend Tsukihime has some supernatural basis it still has the same realistic romance feeling that Aquarian Age manages to capture between the characters. There is no comedy or antics in these two series just the pure unbidden love between two people that really care about one other and just how much their love means to them.
Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.
Three shrine maids have a distant cousin who moved away for schooling when they were young. Years later, he returns, and the three girls are tasked with protecting him. During this, the eldest (who's a teacher at the school) and the middle one form a "Miko" council. The story goes through their growth together and their battles with the servants of the Evil God.
Overall, Aquarian Age and Asagiri no Miko give different moods in their atmosphere, but there are a few events that give off the same feel, especially during battles. Both involve spiritual seals and Miko. I found that the main trial they went through developed in a similar way. Asagiri no Miko has perky humour, and uses great colours.
Oboro, a naive, love-struck girl, is pledged to Gennosuke, an idealist. Both are successors to opposing ninja clans with a long history of hatred kept barely in check by a covenant of peace. Just as the two vow to reconcile the clans with their marriage, the shogun orders the feud to resume in order to resolve an internal struggle that threatens to tear the Tokugawa shogunate apart. Even worse, Oboro and Gennosuke themselves are forced to lead their clans in battle. Can the star-crossed lovers resist the brutal circumstances and remain true to their love as the death toll rises?
Aquarian Age and Basilisk are definitely meant for the same fans! They both have an interesting love story which will appeal even to those who don't particularly like romantic series. Why? Because they are just so different and have interesting twists in the story when outsiders become involved. Basilisk has ninjas with strange powers which means a lot of fights, while Aquarian Age doesn't really focus on the fights. Yet they are there, along with the similar atmosphere and an equally great story!
