Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Ajisai Yumegatari~

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Ajisai Yumegatari~

Azusa was a normal high school student, until she was sucked down a well into a fantasy world full of monsters, demons, and surprises. Dubbed the priestess of the land of Kyou, she found herself joined by the Hachiyou, a group of people with magical powers, dedicated to protecting the priestess and the land. But all does not bode well for Azusa, as the demon Akuram wishes to claim her power for evil purposes. In addition, a malicious spirit is ravaging the townspeople, stealing their life energy! A day's work is never done for the priestess and her companions, it seems.

Both anime tell the story of a normal girl who suddenly becomes a key character in a conflict between two forces, and will have to do her best to protect the world with all her strength. Escaflowne is much longer and more complex, though.

Heat Guy J

Heat Guy J

In the futuristic city of Judoh, some dangers are too much for the police--they require Special Force agent Daisuke Aurora and his robot partner J! When the city's massive underworld is rocked by upheaval, Daisuke and J must struggle to contain gang bosses battling for supremacy. But is there more going on than meets the eye? Who is behind the sudden rise of a previously minor politican to the top of Judoh's underground? How are the mysterious Celestials, who watch Judoh from above, involved? And what secrets lie hidden in Daisuke's own past--and inside J's memory?

Heat Guy J and Escaflowne not only are made by the same studio, but have a very similar feel. Both shows have great twists and turns in the plot, with characters who you never sure where they will eventually side with. While Escaflowne focuses more on romance, Heat Guy J is all about the action. Character development is top notch in both shows, particularly with Dilandau and Clair. Whether you're looking for action, deep characters, or even a little bit of romance, both shows are top notch and perfect for anyone.

Escaflowne and Himikoden have kinda similar storyline. They both tells us the story about a girl taken back to another world, were they have to fight and bring peace to the world before they can return. And I think the little romance between Van and Hitomi reminds me of the love between the couple in Himikoden. Check it out if you enjoyed watching Escaflowne.

Both Escaflowne and Howl's Moving Castle are about a young and fairly normal girl who finds herself suddenly caught up in the unbelievable world of magic. Both stories focus on the magic, the girl's struggles to cope, and the love that inevitably blooms from it all.
