Shirase Akira is a genius hacker who has earned the nickname "Battle Programmer Shirase" (or BPS for short) for his incredible talent. From saving corporations to global security, BPS is always willing to help a hand -- for the right price. But for skills like his, money is not an option, so be sure to have specialized computer parts, sold-out tickets, or huggable life-sized cat girl posters to spare! With BPS in charge, no computer is safe! That is, if he can manage to stop being a complete slacker...
Both Code-E and Battle Programmer Shirase have something to do with technology and you can laugh often. The characters are often misunderstood because it looks like they would do something with other women, but they only do their job.
Sumiregawa Nenene is an author who hasn't published a book in years. However, at a book signing in Hong Kong, things go fascinatingly awry. For starters, her guides are three sisters who operate a detective agency: Maggie, Michelle, and Anita. Then there's the attacks on Nenene's life, and her only line of defense is the three sisters -- who can all use paper as weapons, tools, and even transportation. But can their powers protect Nenene from the mysterious forces that not only want her, but all the precious books of the world...?
Both series have a cute girl/girls with some rather unique powers, but portrayed in a more "realistic" way, with government entities trying to gain control of them for their own purposes. Similar look and feel to both shows, and a similar combination of the overarching story with some romance/drama/comedy sprinkled in.
In a modern world, magic has become a service industry. From transforming a house, to arranging an article in the newspaper, no job is too big or too small for a mage, who are thought of highly in the public eye. Kikuchi Yume, daughter of a famous mage, has finally reached the age of apprenticeship, and must move to Tokyo to find a mentor. Under the tutelage of the esteemed mage (and nightclub owner) Oyamada Masami, she will learn what it means to be able to bring magic to others' lives.
I find that the main characters are the same; they're rather timid and naïve, and have special abilities. Both Code-E and Someday's Dreamer feature supernatural abilities, but don't have the intense action/drama that they usually bring. Instead, they have more of a slice-of-life feel, and are about how the characters cope with these paranormal abilities.
