Kobato.

Kobato.

The cheery Kobato Hanato is on a mission to heal people’s damaged hearts and gather the resulting “konpeito”; she must collect one hundred of these candy-shaped trophies in order for her deepest wish to be granted: to go to a certain place. Along the way, she’s accompanied by an ever-disgruntled, talking stuffed animal of a guardian named Ioryogi who scores her efforts, attempts to keep her on-track, and reminds her of the rule governing her task: she only has one year to fulfill her goal.

What could these two possibly share in common? Well, quite a lot, actually! First off, is the heroine. Both Kobato and Tohru have a very similar personality, putting others before themselves. (But does this make them weak? I would say not. They love so freely, I think it would make them pretty brave...) Both shows also have comedy as well as a bit of a 'magic' involved. (The Sohmas with their curse, Kobato's glass bottle for mended hearts.)And last but not least, they also have a bit of romance! Fruits Basket and Kobato. are sweet shoujos that will have you laugh (and possibly cry).

*Note that due to the release date difference, the animation in one is a lot more advanced.

Welcome to the weirdest, wackiest mansion in town where no one is entirely human and mayhem is the order of the day in Inu X Boku SS!

Thesupernatural transformations reminded me of the zodiac transfromations. The stroy lines are different but the romance theme of loving someone for who they are even if they hate themselves is there.

While the heroine for each show are quite different, the setting and cast of excentric personalities with supernatural afflictions are very reminiscent of each other.  They also share an underlying story of healing from warped childhoods through love and friendship.

Mayo Chiki!

Mayo Chiki!

Due to his upbringing with a wrestler mother and an equally-as-strong sister who beat him up constantly, Kinjirou Sakamachi would rather die than be touched by the opposite sex. So when the boy accidentally discovers that the dreamy school idol (and butler of the wealthy Kanade) Subaru is actually a girl in disguise, Kinjirou finds his life becomes far more complicated. For in exchange for keeping Subaru's gender a secret, Kanade is determined to cure Kinjirou of his gynophobia, with Subaru's help, once and for all...

Though Mayo Chiki is wayyy more ecchi than Furuba, I'd recommend both to fans of shoujo romantic comedies. They both have super cute romances which develop oh-so-slowly, and I think fans of that type of show would enjoy both of these.

The Troubled Life of Miss Kotoura

The Troubled Life of Miss Kotoura

Haruka Kotoura has had a psychic ability to read minds since she was born, but her inability to grasp that she's different has led her to be ostracized by every friend she's made. When she meets Manabe, she can't help but be surprised - when he's not imagining strange creatures dancing through the desert, the boy is a hopeless pervert and makes no attempt to hide his dirtiest fantasies. What's more, Manabe isn't driven away by Kotoura seeing his thoughts, and even goes out of his way to befriend her - seemingly because he enjoys thinking of the girl erotically and seeing her subsequent embarrassment! Before long, the once-lonely girl even meets other students who aren't pushed away by her abilities. Could this be the start of a normal school life, with real, lasting friends for Kotoura?

Kotoura-san is about an emotionally-damaged, socially-isolated, mystically-inclined female protagonist with a cruel mother who is adopted into an unconditionally accepting nakama.  Fruits Basket is about an unconditionally accepting female protagonist with a saintly mother adopted into an emotionally-damaged, socially-isolated, mystically-inclined nakama. Though (or, perhaps, because) they are near perfect reversals of each other, they seem to hit similar emotional chords or at least operate in the same key.

Fruits Basket is more strictly shoujo, while Kotoura-san is targeted to both male and female viewers.

Both shows have a peppy girl as the main character who is surrounded by people who will never let her give up or leave her hanging. These are both living and uplifting shows set in modern day Japan with powers and things not of our world.

Flying Witch

Flying Witch

Aomori, Japan. In a land blessed by nature’s bountiful beauty, bizarre things begin to take place. Makoto Kowata, 15 years old, is a professional witch. She left Yokohama with Chito, her black cat, to live in the house of her relatives in Aomori. This is where she begins to train as a witch. Even though Makoto’s powers are still limited to just flying through the sky, she and her second cousins Kei and Chinatsu surely make the most out of each and every day.

A very possitive girl who is related to paranormal events. They always face their challenges with a smile and know intheresting people in their way.

Makoto and Tohru are optimistic female protagonists who create a warm, positive atmosphere for the people around them whether they are at home, at their local high school or off somewhere dealing with the strange and unusual.
