She meets the bounty hunter Nadie, who befriends her and helps her escape; and together, they decide to travel south to Winay Marka, “The Land of Eternity”, to find clues about Ellis’ past. What’s the origin of Ellis’ powers, and what does “Project Leviathan” have to do with it?
A classic theme in storytelling is that of mortal people dabbling in the supernatural, with disastrous consequences. Sometimes, old magics best left alone are stirred, and sometimes, science stretches its hand too far. Always, always, there is a villain -- someone who is determined not only to continue the process, but to use it for his own twisted, vain or evil purposes. No matter the price to other people.
This is a major plot element in both Ayashi no Ceres and El Cazador de la Bruja, and if you find it interesting in one, you may comfortably expect to recognise similar traits in the other.

There are a few similarites between Witch Hunter Robin and Ayashi no Ceres. The stnj of WHR is very similar to the Mikage gamily of AnC. Both are looking to "better" humanity through people who have more evolved genes. Aya and Robin both are strong female leads who have strong unusual powers. The tension between Robin and Amon is reminisent of Aya and Toya's relationship. I discovered Ayashi no Ceres years after I watched Witch Hunter Robin, and while watching Ayashi I kept thinking to myself that I really wished someone would have told me about Ayahi right after I finished Robin.

Ayashi no Ceres and Rosario to Vampire, although seemingly unrelated the personalities between Ceres and Aya and Mako’s vampire form and human form have similarities in the characteristics they portray. The transformation has a more mature attitude and seems to be more capable all around while untransformed there is an innocent girl in place that relies on others for help.
Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
Both of them deal with deep set human emotions and love with all its different faces. Love moves both stories towards their fate. Eventhough Bokura ga Ita doesn't have a supernatural component to the story and Ayashi no Ceres does, the similarities in other aspects make them both enjoyable in a similar level.
If you got carried away with Nanami's story, you'll definately enjoy Aya's in Ayashi no Ceres!
