Dark magic is afoot; can Sakura manage to stop it, even if it means losing the one she loves the most?
Whenever Kippei is at school, he has one thing on his mind: girls. From skipping class to cheesy lines, he'll do anything it takes to reel the ladies in, though he never seems to find the right person. But the bachelor lifestyle is soon to change when young Yuzuyu enters the picture. This five-year-old cutie has been abandoned by her mother, and is to be taken care of by none other than Kippei! Unfortunately for the both of them, Kippei has no experience raising a child, so the learning curve will be quite steep...
Both Aishiteruze Baby and Cardcaptor Sakura seemed to be aimed at a similar audience. Also, the artistry in both animes are quite similars. Some of the characters' personalities are similar as well. If you enjoyed one, I think you will enjoy the other. Aishiteruze Baby might be enjoyed by a bit older audience, but either way, they are both cute, heart-warming animes.
Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
Oh my God, you've just finished everything CCS there possibly could be. How will you cope with the withdrawal symptoms? By watching Princess Tutu, of course! Just like CCS, it's got an adorable, plucky female lead called Ahiru, a cute magical world filled with wonder which you get to explore, and a story that's both humorous and heart-wrenching all at the same time. Oh, and Tutu has something CCS doesn't have - ballet! If you like magical girl shows like CCS, do NOT miss out on Princess Tutu.
Where have all the children gone?! Children are mysteriously disappearing in the dead of night from all over the world. Even as the evil queen Badiyanu continues to gather up the children in order to harvest their dream energies for the Black Dream Hole, Usagi and the girls are busy trying to stop all the kidnappings and save the children. Can Chibiusa's new friend Peruru help the Sailor Senshi stop Badiyanu before it's too late?
Both of these are movies are based off of a magical girl series. Each has a plot which deals with things (or people!) disappearing because of some kind of magical force, and the threat of the heroine losing someone she cares about. Both movies also have a carnival-related theme too, and bright, colourful animation.
The god Mauser delivered unto a world of magic a prophecy: if the Scrapped Princess is allowed to live, she will destroy the entire world. But the knight who was to kill her could not end the life of a newborn child, and so she lived. Fifteen years later, her adopted brother and sister have sworn to protect her, and together they travel from town to town, searching for a life she can't have.
If you like more of that sweet-natured feel to fantasy but with a great plot and well-developed characters and a strong sense of peril, then try Scrapped Princess next. Just like in CCS, there is a great sense of adventure and lots of inventive fantasy action, but the protagonists are upbeat and adorable without being annoying.
