The corollations between Escaflowne and Capricorn are plentiful -- from the fantasy nature, to the type of characters, to the plot itself! I am positive you'd like one if you liked the other.

Both Escaflowne and Capricorn have fairly similar themes and storylines. A lot of the characters in both are animals or mythical creatures, and they also both have dragons and such. The mood is similar as well.

Wow, how suprising to have 2 anime with a main female character who is half dragon/half human. Although Dragon Half is a bit more humorous and the story is completely different, the atmosphere is similar, and both progress through the story the same way.

cute dragon girls? Dragon half got the same kind of story as Capricorn except that it's not as serious and dramatic. Dragonhalf will make you laugh alot more and is alot cute. But if you like the dragon girl theme this is absolutely something you should go for.

While 3x3 Eyes definitely is a LOT more focused on horror and violence, I really felt the same kind of thing from both of these. Definitely an adventuring fantasy-like feel, as well as harrowing situations with a protagonist that is a bit bumbling. This recommendation might be a stretch, but I think you might like it.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

Both 3x3 eyes and capricorn have a really similar feel. The animation is also fairly similar, although 3x3 eyes is a little more high calibur. You would probably enjoy 3x3 Eyes more, since the story is more compelling, but Capricorn is fun and enjoyable too, mostly for the same reasons.

Although Kyou Kara Maou is definitely a LOT more focused on comedic situations, both it and Capricorn excel in showing us a beautiful fantasy world with a protagonist who definitely shouldn't be there, but is forced to adapt anyways! Not to mention, these are both a great viewing anyways.

A beautiful fantasy world with mixes of technology and mystical things can be found in both of these series. In addition, the plots are terribly similar as it is! But more than that, I think El Hazard Alt world and Capricorn have very similar feels to them as well.
