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

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.

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.

arashileonhart arashileonhart says...

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.

These series each focus on a lead male unwillingly thrown into a battle for his life and the future. They each have the main character paired with a female that forces them to fight. Ideals and realities battle to take control of the future in both series, making them go well together.

arachni42 arachni42 says...

Both are extremely similar in that they have battles where each person involved has a servant (called an asset in C) that fights for him/her. Their male protagonists are definitely cut from the same cloth. Neither hero wishes to fight but both are compelled to. The way both of them respect and care for their servant/asset is the same, and this is regarded as highly unusual in both series. Although the setting and plot are rather different, if you liked one of these series you'd probably like the other.

Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.

Shirou and Shu start off as regular high school students assuming their daily life until one they recent event struck them that would change their lives forever getting accompanied by a girl who acts as their ally. Shirou and Shu gain powers that can take form of anything it wants and improves it throughout the story. The story gets simple early but gets twisty and complex later on as the mysterious third party awaits them.........

skyphoenix skyphoenix says...

Both very similar. Weakish male lead. Slightly stronger female lead. Similar endings...................
