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.
Nakahara Sunako, a high school girl whose interests include horror movies, coffins and gore, is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys. As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her aunt: in exchange for free rent, they will try to mold Sunako into a magnificent lady. As someone who has cast aside all her femininity and sworn to live in darkness, Sunako is ready to do whatever it takes to nullify these efforts; but is there a way for the creatures of darkness and light to coexist?
First of all, I know there are a lot of differences between Earl and Fairy and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. One's along the lines of a fairy tale set in Europe, the other is set in modern day Japan. Earl and Fairy has less comedy and the main character doesn't go into dimunitive form.
However, both anime have similar artwork, relatively innocent romance, and handsome male leads (some might even say stunning). More importantly, the female leads, despite their quirks, are pursued by at least one of the said young men. Isn't that every girl's dream?
If you enjoyed the romance and the charming guys in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, I think you'll enjoy Earl and Fairy, too (just get past the first four episodes). And if you liked Earl and Fairy and don't mind a bit more outrageous comedy, chances are you'd like Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Hange.
