Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...

In both of these anime, characters either immediately get one wish before making a contract or fight for the chance at a wish after making a contract. Magical Girls/Masters fight other Magical Girls/Masters using magic, swords or various other weapons. As the stories unravel, they take form of a much darker element, producing two dramatic and similar fantasy series.

The archetypes of both Madoka and Fate are very much alike: both innocent Madoka and justice-desiring Sayaka are similar to FSN protagonist Shirou, while cynical Kyouko and repentant Homura are somewhat reminiscent of Archer.  Themes of justice, hope, and wishes are strong in both series, and there are a variety of visual shout-outs in Madoka to FSN--primarily in the fan-nicknamed "Unlimited Musket Works" and "Unlimited Bazooka Works."  It should be no surprise then, that the writer of Madoka, Gen Urobuchi, also penned the FSN prequel Fate/Zero; Urobuchi's end notes to one F/Z novel basically outlined his plans for Madoka.

Ultimately, if you liked one for its thematic devices, I don't know why you wouldn't like the other.

Fate/Stay Night and Seikon no Qwaser are two series revolving around people that have the ability to control elements.  They fight against similar people while trying to protect the humans of earth.

Qwaser is what Fate/stay Night would likely be if it focuses more on ecchi than the story. A lot of action, with a bit of comedy. If you liked Qwaser you would probably enjoy F/SN

I loved the way these anime depict fights between magically endowed warriors. Two boys plunge head-first into a world of violence, and sword-wielding girls have to protect them and help them find their own strengths. Tokko is bloody, while Fate is not, but they are both strong anime in their own right, and have compelling and similar storylines. They truly are a match.

FireFlower

Fate/Stay night and Tokko share magically enchanted warriors. Well eventough Fate/Stay night might be considered a bit bloody then Tokko is giving full service for you. No censored / edited screens of corpses, all drawn in great detail

If you cannot bear overused bloody scenes then DO NOT watch this, it will be scary for minor watchers.

X TV

X TV

Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven now must fight for the destruction or safety of the world. But is this troubled Kamui really the key to saving the world?

X TV and Fate/stay night are, coincidentally or not, about fourteen heroes fighting each other for the ultimate prize; the heroes are the 7 Dragons of Earth and 7 Dragons of Heaven (X), and the 7 magicians with their 7 servants (Fate/S N). The stories are about destiny, power and sacrifice, and are beautifully drawn, both taking place in present-day Japan. These series feature high school students torn from ordinary life for their higher purpose, and really go well together.

Arhu

Both series have a similar premise and a similar atmosphere. Dark, serene, melancholic and surreal.

This title and this series are remarkably similar to each other. Almost to the point of just swaping characters in some cases. The story and settings are similar and the characters are almost literaly the same archytypes. Even the characters powers particularly the main characters are almost the same. If you enjoy this series you will like the other and vice versa since its pretty much the same scenario except told by a differant storyteller.

Yumekui Merry and Fate/stay Night have many of the same personality characteristics, even to the point that the powers of the characters are strikingly similar to one another.
