If you liked the El Cazador de la Bruja anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Maia Mizuki has just had all of her hopes and dreams shattered. Not only did she fail her entrance exam to the Ocean Agency, a prestigious marine law enforcement agency, but she’s also been left penniless, homeless, and alone. She soon finds herself caught in a gun fight between two scantily clad women and a pair of bank robbers. The women are from Nereids, a private detective agency that will do anything if the price is right. One thing leads to another and Maia takes a job working for Nereids, where she"ll receive room and board. Her jobs range from collecting rent to saving pets to capturing criminals. Now she just has to balance her life of "fighting crime" with her dream of one day being a part of the Ocean agency!
Rentarou has been running the Futaba Detective Agency with the help of his twin assistants Sara and Soujyu since the previous man in charge, his father, died. To top it off most people in the neighborhood refer to him as Nidaime, a second generation man who lives in his father's shadow. His late father was a great man that was looked up to by everyone good or bad including Rentarou. With problems from his father's legacy presenting themselves, Yakuza that sometimes want him dead, a workplace/home that keeps getting destroyed and Sara and Soujyu's growing feelings for him, will he ever live up to his father?
Both animes deal with completely different subjects, but still I believe they have the same feel. Futakoi Alternative has a crazier storyline, but both have action elements and serious dramatic moments. You may not like both, but I did!
In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?
Note: I am making this recommendation after seeing only 8 episodes of El Cazador.
Both series, while the settings are quite different, share a slow pace and a quiet mood. El Cazador has splendid Mexican(?) landscapes, while .hack//Sign has fantasy-game backgrounds. Even though there are action scenes in both series, the focus is on characters instead of combat.
In another world, there exist many countries, each with different cultures, customs, and traditions. From technological marvels to folk legends, each location yields a vast wealth of insight of its people: their hopes and their dreams, their failures and fears. Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.
Although the two series have a very different plot, the basic storytelling styles of Kino's Journey and El Cazador de la Bruja are remarkably similar, with episodic tales, each illustrating or allegorizing some aspect of the human condition. In this way, the stories of both anime describe journeys that are as much an inward odyssey as an outward voyage.
Maiku Kamishiro has always had a photo of himself as a child in front of an old house with a young girl. One day after spotting the building in a news report, the high school boy moves to the countryside to live in the house from the picture. While living alone, making ends meet by working as a freelance programmer, Maiku gets the shock of his life when not one, but two girls turn up on his doorstep claiming to be his twin sister! With the lively Miina and timid Karen both possessing the same photograph, the pair begins living with the confused Maiku as they try to figure out which one of them is actually his sister.
Both these animes deal with love, though El Cazador de la Bruja is more of a friendly love, while Onegai Twins deals with the love of two girls and their couldbe brother. Still, I found the dramatic moments of both to effect me in a similar way.
