Synopsis:

Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.

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.

Both of these animes are Romances. Both of the animes revolves around spirits or Fairies. The Romance of the animes are more of spicey tang.

As in Spice and Wolf, Horo is the spirit and Lawrence is a helper. Horo needs to get to her homeland in the north thats a snow forest.

As in Earl and Fairy, Lydia the Fairy Doctor only sees the Fairies. Edgar is the man who follows her to get to the place he needs to get to, The sword that he needs.

For both of the animes, I'd Really say that this is a must for either of these animes.

Galadriel

both Hakushaku to Yousei and Spice and Wolf are nice, heartwarming romance series, both shows involve a couple which consists of a normal human and a female protagonist that is non-human (in Hakushaku to Yousei the girl is a fairy doctor while in Spice and Wolf the girl is a ancient wolf god). Also both animes are kinda set in a similar background, a medieval setting (though the setting in Hakushaku to Yousei seems to be abit more modern). If you liked one of this shows then be sure to check the other one as well.

Jenesis

I like to see older characters in anime - I get a little tired of the high school romances. These are both guilty pleasures of romance, characterization, and plot! Spice and Wolf fans will enjoy Ear and Fairy, and visa versa!

wolfangel87

If you’re looking for some slightly comedic drama with a whole lot of spirits thrown into the mix, Spice and Wolf and Earl and Fairy might be the two tales (no pun intended) for you. Both heroines have a extraordinary power that the male leads have to rely on throughout their journey together. The Medieval setting of the two is a key backdrop in the adventure the protagonists share.

RedCrossRobbery

If you liked Earl and Fairy, you'll probably end up enjoying Spice and Wolf. Earl and Fairy has always felt like the immature baby sister to Spice and Wolf, and I'm sure anyone who enjoys Earl and Fairy would come to absolutely love Spice and Wolf.

Vampire Knight

Vampire Knight

Cross Academy is a school with a difference: in a unique and experimental setup designed by the headmaster, it has a Day Class consisting of ordinary humans and a Night Class filled with vampires. Yuki Cross and her friend Zero Kiryu are school prefects whose job it is to make sure the secret of the Night Class is always safe; they patrol the school grounds at night and supervise the switchover of classes at dawn and dusk to prevent any 'accidents' from happening. While Zero is suspicious of vampires and hates the idea of sharing the same space as them, Yuki admires the Night Class for their beauty and sophistication; she is especially intrigued by their charming leader, Kaname, because he once saved her life. However, as Yuki quickly learns, not all vampires are amiable like the Night Class, and as terrible events unfold, Yuki must ask herself whether in a world where vampires are the hunters and humans are the prey, peaceful coexistence can really be achieved.

VivisQueen

A lot like Earl and Fairy, Vampire Knight takes a recognisable legend and then puts it in a melodramatic shoujo format with lots of bishounen, pretty animation, and romance, romance, romance! The bonus of Vampire Knight is that it has a much better mystery, a much more anguished love triangle (you'll find it hard to choose between Zero and Kaname!), and there's a lot of nibbling on necks. If you really like Earl and Fairy, then Vampire Knight will be right up your alley.

Stazia

To me the animation styles are very similar.  They both deal with noblity and a somewhat reluctanct romance. Both have supernatural themes as well.   

KiraRin

If you have a penchant for beautiful bishounen and hapless female leads, then both Earl and Fairy and Vampire Knight will be for you. The two storylines are based in the supernatural, however the main focus is on the romance between the male and female leads.

If you dream about being swept off your feet by a handsome rogue, I highly recommend both of these shows to you.

Galadriel

both shows feature a dark, gloomy atmosphere and deal with a supernatural theme as well however both shows mostly focus on a romance aspect which makes them both quite alike. The female leads, Lydia and Yuuki are pretty much alike too, both of them have similar characteristics and similar personalities, being wanted by the men around them. Both shows also feature a similar animation style and are action packed so if you liked one be sure to check the other one as well.

wolfangel87

For some reason the first thing that struck me between Vampire Knight and the series Earl and Fairy is the hierarchy structure set for the for the characters and the aristocracy that it revolves around making some of the characters arrogant to the extreme. The supernatural ties of the series brings out the historical feeling in the characters and similar animation styles.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

Both anime are shojo romance with a reverse harem, a Victorian setting and a narcissistic blond romantic interest. Hakushaku to Yōsei is not quite as comedic as Ouran though- more drama.

KiraRin

Girls - if you like the idea of a group of handsome bishounen sweeping you off your feet, you will be more than spoilt for choice with Ouran and Earl + Fairy. With romantic moments that will have you melting, the denial of the female protagonist only encouraging the beautiful boys even further.

If you like the reverse harem and very sexy guys, I highly recommend both of these to you.

Galadriel

both Hakushaku to Yousei and Ouran High are reverse harem shows (shoujo romance), both of them are set in a modern, Victorian setting. Also both of them are pretty nice, heartwarming romances, though Ouran High has a way more developed comedy aspect than Hakushaku to Yousei. So if you liked one of this shows be sure to check the other one as well.

wolfangel87

With shoujo romance and a little reverse harem Earl and Fairy and Ouran High School Host Club fit hand in hand. The Victorian type setting plays a key role in unveiling the back drop of the characters budding romance, while the heroines of these delightful tales try to give a new type of relationship a try.

Hatenkou Yuugi and Early & Fairy are two shows that remind you of the other despite a couple big differences. Earl & Fairy is a more lighthearted show where Hatenkou Yuugi has several darker story arcs. Though both implement the use of magic and supernatural creatures in their adventures, the nature of either is different in each show. That being said, I would recommend one if you enjoyed the other.

chii

These two shows are very similar in feeling with magic and special creatures roaming about. Earl & Fairy is more lighthearted and adds some comedy in there where Hatenkou Yuugi takes a more serious tone. If you liked one you should check out the other.

wolfangel87

Hatenkou Yuugi & Early and Fairy are all about magic and magical creatures wrapped up in exciting adventures for the main characters. The main characters are really relatable, especially in Earl and Fairy.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...

If you like Kaichou wa Maid-sama! then you might also like Earl and Fairy (and vice versa) because they have similar type of romance plot =/

snivets

Earl and Fairy is a great rec for fans of Maid-sama and vice versa. The two main characters have a very similar way of interacting with each other. If that aspect of either show entertained you, the other is worth checking out.

Doremi

Even though the plot is totally different, if you have seen either of these animes you will love the other.

The reason for this is the relationship between the male and female MC. Edgar and Usui are both strong, sarcastic and teasing guys. They act like all they do is teasing, but behind lies true feelings. Both has sad backstories, and they look very alike besides eyecolor.

Misaki and Lydia on the other hand aren't so alike. They both are dense, and strongwilled, but Lydia isn't as psysically strong as Misaki.

They also have a hard time accepting the actions of the male MC. Being dense, and in denial the romance is a bit on hold, but both the romantic and comedic moments are lovely.

Comparing those two, it is much more comedy in Maid-sama, and more drama in Earl and Fairy. I promise if you liked one of them you will totally fall in love with the other. Or if you haven't watched any of those, it's totally worth taking your time to watch both. Espescially if you love the shoujo genre.
