It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.
Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?
Supernatural drama, familial mysteries, tough females, and 'chosen few' monster fighters are central to My-Hime and Chno Crusade. Though the settings and story are quite different, the two shows have similar sensibilities regarding drama and, to some extent, action (though Hime features more proxy-fighting and romance). Goofy humor plays a part in each show, though both become increasingly dramatic and serious as mysteries begin to unfold. Both series focus on the trials of different kinds of love and friendship.
Six months have passed since Rayne, Hyuga, Angelique and Jade were betrayed by Nyx and watched both him and their mansion burn to the ground. Arcadia is now in ruin, Thanatos is growing stronger, and the Aube Hunters - who have been missing for some time - are now seen as scapegoats for the destruction of the land. With time running out, Arcadia's only hope lies with the now-scorned Aube Hunters and Angelique, the only person capable of saving the land from darkness...
If you like either of these I think you'll definitely like the other. They both have a complex and captivating plot and the they are so beautiful but so sad. Both of the main characters are wrapped in decisions that are easy to decide but hard to carry out. Both of these made me cry a lot but they are some some the best anime I've seen.
In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.
Both animes deal with apocalyptic theories. Although Chrono Crusade is more biblical and Fatima-based, both animes exemplify a creative interpretation of the apocalypse. Divine forces seem to collide and leave humans no choice but facing the Armageddon. Though Neon Genesis Evangelion is a mecca anime, it would nevertheless, compete if not exceed the Religious creativity of Chrono Crusade.
Mireille Bouqet has become a reputable assassin working in France. However, all changes after she meets Kirika, a mysterious young girl who knows nothing about her past but possesses killing skills that dwarf hers.

On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius's fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more - thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy - he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person's body. However, there's a catch - in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain's power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice - a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization - a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it. Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice's lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there's a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.
Both anime have very assertive female and deep thinking male leads. They both involve contracters, but they both have different twists. They have amazing story lines and killer plot twists. If you love one, you'll probably love the other one.
