Spice and Wolf

Spice and Wolf

Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.

If you were disappointed like I was with C then you should definitely check out Spice and Wolf for an enjoyable watch. Both have economic themes but Spice and Wolf does a much better job overall with its execution in its plot and animation. Spice and Wolf is a better option compared to C.

Both these series have that economics feel to them. Though S&W is more of a merchant tale with great drama/comedy, money and business relationships still play a part. C is fairly similar and, though it has a slightly more serious tone at times, it has the same feel to it as S&W in terms of assets and high-stakes decisions.

Economics for the fantasy world in S&W, and Economics in a more modern world for C. If one dosnt hit you, look to the other one. Or if you just like Economics, watch both.

Selector Infected WIXOSS

WIXOSS is a card game that's popular with teenagers. Supposedly there exist "Rulig Cards," female character cards with wills of their own.

It's said that whoever triumphs in these battles will have their wish granted. Ruko Kominato is the latest girl to find a Rulig card. She names hers Tama, and without any further explanation is thrown into her life as a Selector.

If you're a fan of the battles in WIXOSS or C, then this is a rec for you. There are a few differences between the two shows, but the fighting is pretty much the same. Holders of mysterious cards do battle by summoning a supernatural being from inside the card. The holder then commands the being, and if they win, they are rewarded. If this kind of battle system is what you're looking for, then look no further.

If you like anime about high stakes games that start off simple, but then grow to have world changing consequences then you should check out these titles. Both C and Wixoss start out with their characters just trying to have fun with these new games they've discovered, but thy quickly come to realize that there is a lot more at stake in these games. 

In C the characters play a lot of different games and the cards are just used for avatars. Wixoss is about a card battle game so there is less variety in the game. Wixoss also does a poor job of explaining the card game so it can be difficult to understand what is going on most of the time.

Both these anime have real world and game world settings. The real world in both anime are shown as a bit drab and gray, but the game worlds are colorful places full of fantastical design. C has the better designs and more interesting look of the two, but both anime have a second world that only a few selected people can see. 

If you're looking for games anime where the stakes seem low at the start, but suddenly become world shaking then check out either of these titles.

Apparently Selector Infected WIXOSS is a mix of Madoka Magica and C the Money of Soul, where a young and innocent protagonist have to fight in battles in order to accomplish a wish that can also betray them in the end.

Fate/stay night

Fate/stay night

The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?

These series each focus on a lead male unwillingly thrown into a battle for his life and the future. They each have the main character paired with a female that forces them to fight. Ideals and realities battle to take control of the future in both series, making them go well together.

C is to economics as Code Geass is to chess. They both have these themes that are applied to the plot, though in both cases it makes far more sense symbolically than literally. C is lacking in the "All according to plan..." gambits that Code Geass is chock full of, and the main characters' reactions to the power they're handed are quite the opposite. C is the more unique concept, but the characters and plot are not as fleshed out as Code Geass. Still, both series play with their respective themes and take them to over-the-top levels. They both have something new to bring to the table.

both anime have the 'power given by a stranger' theme. Both try to change the future in a variety of ways meeting people who have a similar goal but different methods to achieve it.  Overall, both are good, even though C is alot shorter, it is just as memorable.

Both series involve heavy action fighting, and the main characters getting sucked into new worlds and finding out about the respective secret organizations therein, while learning more about their families. Both also have a mysterious bright-haired mentor type character, and similar animation style.

closetanimefan closetanimefan says...

Both are about a world where there is more then meets the eye. Both have main characters that care about other people and use a power, that they didn't really want, to protect people. They also both have a scary-looking clown-like character that feels like he might be a bad guy, but you never really know.
