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.

On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
Both animes are related to a love story. One of the "lovers" in each of the stories has a past where there heart was broken by love.
As in Earl and Fairy, The Fairy Doctor when she had a relationship with a young boy. The boy only was with the girl because he lost a bet. No one likes a girl who believes in Fairies and isn't pretty.
As in Bokura ga Ita, Yano durring a previous year he had a relationship with a girl. Including other events in the past, Yano started to hate love.
Also, I think that both animes have simular artists, The artwork of both animes are JUST WONDERFUL! I really do like the pictures and the backgrounds though the stories. If you like either, then YOU MUST watch the other.
Both anime are romances with a twist of the supernatural. The stories themselves revolve around different issues. In Inu x Boku the story is more about character development, while there is a sort of adventure plot driving Earl and Fairy. All in all they're both solid stories told in just a few episodes.
Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!
In order to bridge the gap between humans and youkai, The Ministry of Spirit Affairs was formed. Military man Kei Agemaki is assigned to the new unit and seems to be the ideal candidate. He’s charming, polite, and a complete gentleman, but there’s just one problem: he’s absolutely terrified of spirits! When he arrives at the new headquarters, Agemaki is partnered up with a cute, yet brash, youkai named Zakuro. Now the unlikely pair must work together to solve the region’s spirit-related problems to help improve relations between humans and youkai, and maybe help Agemaki overcome his crippling fear while they’re at it.
These anime are both about myths/magic. They both involve spirits. Both stories are centered around a guy and a girl. They don't know much about each other at first but as time passes by they come to have a liking with each other and they help each other out. In both anime, the girl doesn't really seem to like the guy as much in the beginning, but the guy somehow is charming.
Awayuki Himeno is a normal schoolgirl who is in a bind: her father’s remarriage yielded two new cruel stepsisters, and to top it off, she meets seven men who call themselves Liefe Knights. They reveal to her that she's a Pretear, someone who can lend powers to them when their powers aren’t enough to defeat the evil creatures called mayouchuu. Now, she has to fight the ambitious Fenrir, whose only purpose is to leech the life force from all living beings. Can Himeno save the world and find a way to deal with her growing feelings for one of the Liefe Knights?
They both have strong main female characters. While Himeno is more teenaged & goofy, & Lydia is more adult & sure of herself; they both have one thing in common. They both have a man behind them, the men want to protect & love these women.
In Hayate's case, he's just too chicken to tell Himeno how he feels. Edgar is the opposite, he will do whatever it takes to make Lydia love him back.
They're both lovely & they are both enchanting stories.
