Although Key is seemingly about a very different topic, they both hold a sinister background plot that becomes revealed far into the series. Unfortunately, I can't explain what that is, else the series will be spoiled for you.. but in general, Key has a very dark, almost gruesome feel to it, just like the darker parts of Ayashi no Ceres. Key also has less romance/sappy scenes, which is a big plus in my book.
TheBurningCrow
The only thing that makes these series both really unique and really good is that they both have really weird messed up stuff that happens. A female main character with strange powers, etc. Also there is a scene in both towards the end that is fairly similar in them. Key I liked a lot better, they were both dark series, but Key seemed darker and more depressing.

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora

Average, boring, and nothing special; this is how Shiratori Kuu feels about herself and her life as a high school student in Academia. On what begins as any other day, Kuu's life is spun upside down when a new student transfers to her class. As soon as she sees his face, she is astonished, for this is no ordinary boy – he looks just like the prince she has dreamt of for so long! He extends a hand to her and repeats the words she has somehow heard before, "Lets go... Together." But it is never that easy, is it? A world that seemed so dull is now torn apart by a whirlwind of love and hate, and the conflict that plagues all those involved.

If you liked Ayashi, you would like Kyoshiro too because they are both supernatural and romantic. They may seem different from the outside but they will give you a similar feeling. In these anime, the deep and complicated stories will make you watch them quickly. If you are looking for a supernatural yet romantic anime like Ayashi then Kyoshiro is for you.

Galadriel

What defines Shattered Angels and Ayashi no Ceres is both its supernatural aspect, featuring angels and especially its deep romantic element, that dominates both shows. Both of them feature complicated story which depicts the same theme, the reincarnation theme. So if you liked one, you will enjoy the other one as well.

Both Tsukihime and AnC involve families with a past that is kept hidden from the present generation. This creates problems when that past finally catches up. In addition, there is the romantic element that is mysteriously linked to the main character, and in the end, helps them remember who they really are.

As the past for the main characters is unknown in Ayashi no Ceres and Lunar Legend Tsukihime problems start to arise from the secrets.  Both series contain supernatural elements designed to enhance the mysteries surround the leads. 

Peach Girl

Peach Girl

Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!

Both series deal with a major love triangle and I had a hard time choosing my favorite guy until the end; each has redeeming qualities about him that makes it hard to choose which one you would really pick. It is interesting to see how much your opinion changes throughout the show when you watch it! Both series also deal with high school relationships.

Nanamy

Both shoujo series deal with a love triangle and it's the same feeling in both animes sometimes it seems like she's gonna pick this guy but sometimes you think she's gonna end up with the other guy and there are so many kiss scenes with diferent guy more than once, that makes it hard to know which one she would really pick at the end.

Both Ayashi no Ceres and Romeo X Juliet deal with the main character having a hard time coping with what she has to deal with. Even though Ayashi no Ceres is more fantasy-based while Romeo X Juliet is based off of Shakespeare, the two stories both have the same kind of star-crossed love in them.

Valore

if you love a good tragic romance story then you're going to love both Romeo X Juliet and Ayashi no Ceres. both stories revolve around a girl who due to reasons beyond her knowledge is thrown into a world of chaos by people out to see her dead. It follows her as she overcomes obstacles one after the other and meets with a man who changes her life. The story also follows the romance between the two main characters very closely as well as the problems that arise to tear them apart. They are both what i believe to be wonderful stories of star crossed lovers that really tugs at the heart strings.
