While reading "The Universe of the Four Gods", best friends Miaka and Yui are mysteriously transported into a strange world full of magic and unfamiliar faces. As if their arrival was determined by fate, Miaka is revered as the Priestess of Suzaku, the savior of their warring country, who was destined to arrived in a flash of light, from a land far away. Betrayal, love, and heartache accompany this fantasy-filled tale of friendships torn apart, and hope that never fades.
There is a legend of an angel who fell to Earth many years ago, and was forced to marry a man because he held the key to her only way home. Hundreds of years later, sixteen year old Mikage Aya is the reincarnation of Ceres, the vengeful angel, who must now fight for her life against her family and her own twin brother Aki, the reincarnation of her past evil husband...
If you liked Fushigi Yugi you'd like Ayashi no Ceres because I think the creator is the same and the characters actually look alike. Both have love stories too.
You just about have to be girly to enjoy the work of Yuu Watase. If you like one, you will like the other. Both are full of romance, really hot guys, and some pretty good action.
Both Fushigi Yugi and Ayashi no Ceres are romantic stories involving magic and mystery, and have elements of comedy. The heroines of both series are girls who, although independent and strong, still desire and depend on a strong man.
Both of the series are created by Yuu Watase and have the same kind of animation. There is a supernatural side to both of the stories and the main heroines have to put themselves through a test of life to decide what is best for everyone. The main heroines, Aya (Ayashi no Ceres) and Miaka (Fushigi Yugi) have decisions to make affecting the outcome of the people that they love. Each series is also a reverse harem.
Both Ayashi No Ceres and Fushigi Yugi, created by mangaka Yuu Watase, will make you fall into their magical universes where both love and hatred entangles.
anyone who has seen either anime will love the other, not only where these created by the same person but both anime are tales about normal girls who find out that they are not so normal, about fighting for the people they love, discovering love, and themselves. i would highly suggest either of these animes.
Very similar themes, story lines, even the characters look similar. Fushigi Yuugi is probably a little more lighter and longer version of Ayashi no Ceres.
Both anime are about love and sadness from separation from the most precious person. At the same time both anime contain, action, fights, predestination and magic. They are both dramatic and well developed. Although Ayashi is much more bloody and not so funny as Fushigi Yugi.
Both of these series have a similar artistic feel to them and also incorporate themes of mystery surounding the love interest. The most common theme in these series is the young girl beginning very selfish and imature and later becoming more confident in themselves and more mature.
Same author, same art style. While watching one you'll get the feel of the other. Both are made up of romance and fantasy. The only difference is that Ayashi no Ceres has a more serious atmosphere while Fushigi Yuugi has some comedy thrown in the mix.
This anime is by the same writer and the writer did an excellent job on both animes! I'd recommend both animes to almost anyone.
Ayashi no Ceres is a very similar anime compared to Fushigi Yugi, not just because of the fact that they both are the work of the same author, but also because they both include romance, fantasy, and sadness. Veiwers feel strong emotions as they do while watching Fushigi Yugi. Also, the ED song fades into the climax of each episode, giving a gut feeling that both of these animes are similar. A person who enjoys Fushigi Yugi would definitely also enjoy Ayashi no Ceres and vice versa.
Both of these anime are incredibly similar in animation style and both tell the story of an important time in a young, innocent girls life. Miaka is sent to another world while Aya's world as she knows it is turned upside down. Both make love connections and struggle to make them work amongst the turmoil around them. I watched both of these and though they look similar, the stories are actually very different. The first episodes of both series' are very compelling.
Well, they are both made by the same author. But that doesn't count. What it does count is the fact that both of them will take you along their journey and will captivate you in their story. They both succeed in making the viewer feel the emotions flowing into him as the characters experience love, betrayal, hate and as they have to fight, and have to arm themselves with courage in order to win. Magic and fantasy are both present in them and give the animes warmer surroundings. You will find that there are many scenes that will shake your ground due to the amazingly detailed flow of emotions. So, if you liked one, you'll definitely like the other!
Both animes are made by the same person and involve romance. In the two animes, there are scenes that will make you excited or sometimes maybe even cry. If you like one of them try out the other since they are both very incredible and awesome!
From the improbably strong romatic relationship between the main characters, to the courageous female lead, to the animation, there are many similarities between these animes. Both provide many painfully sad and happy moments and you can't help but root for the characters. If you liked one, you'll probably like the other.
After their protector gods are stolen, a high school girl named Akane descends from the skies to the people of Kyou. She has within her the power of the Dragon God and is welcomed as a savior; but has she come to save Kyou, or destroy it? While she struggles to control her power, her demon summoner works behind the scenes to use her as a tool of vengeance. To make matters worse, the 8 Hachiyou who would defend her have not yet been fully gathered. Even as they come to Akane’s side, they must first fight their own demons before they can help her return Kyou’s gods…
Do you like being suddenly whisked away to a foreign land? Or maybe kidnapped into the past by some crazy ancient book or (maybe?) evil demon? Fushigi Yugi and Harukanaru Toki no Naka de are both in the "school girl gets swept away into the past and thrust into the position of priestess necessary to save the world" roles, and while Fushigi Yugi has for years been called the best anime of this genre, I think Harukanaru has taken over its spot. The quality of animation is incredible, the music is beautiful, and the settings depicted in Heian era Japan are historically accurate. But if you are in it just for the romance, Fushigi Yugi is a better bet (but be prepared to get REALLY annoyed with the characters somewhere after the middle of the series.) So, if you want a little less romance but a better plot, more likable characters, and animation and music that isn't dated, check out Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Hachiyou Shou~!
The plot is very similar. The main heroines get transferred to another world where they are given the duty of saving the country they found themselves in with the help of some warriors, who are also their protectors.
Both stories are about a high school girl who is summoned into a fantasy world. The character relations are deep and emotional, yet sometimes very funny! You'll laugh, cry, hate, and love watching Harukanaru Toki; I highly recommend it!
Both series are based upon the same Chinese legend of a young priestess and a group of male protectors.
It can be said that the two share the very same plot line.
Fushigi Yugi and Harukanaru may very well be the same anime; it's hard to tell sometimes. The only thing missing from Harukanaru is a best friend battle I guess. Other than that, these anime are really similar. One girl is pulled down a well, the other into a book.
The best way to describe Harukanaru is that it's a newer version of Fushigi Yuugi. It takes place in the same type of setting and has the same base story, except Harukanaru doesn't focus as much on the romance and drama. If you enjoyed Fushigi Yuugi's story and want more fantasy goodness, you should definitely watch Harukanaru.
These two shows are extremely similar. A couple of high school students are transported to a "different" world and the girl is chosen as a priestess. No difference! What you need to know are the differences, which are: in Fushigi you have a harem anime with tons of romance and the love triangles/squares/whatever are blatantly obvious, plus lots of comedy. In Harukanaru there is a much more serious tone and much less romance (well, it takes much longer to be revealed and then it's much more discreet). Other than this, the plot is almost identical.
Both series are similar in many aspects. Both are based on the legend about four guardians of Kyoto (originally from ancient chinese mythology). Seiryu, the dragon, is guardian of the East, Byako, the tiger, is guardian of the West, while Genbu, the tortoise, is guardian of the North and Suzaku, the phoenix, is guardian of the South. The priestess (summoned from modern world to medieval times) in both series has her eight protectors as there are eight symbols of pakua. Together, they fight in order to save this world. Both series are also romantic and funny. If you liked one, you would surely like the other.
Both series are about a young woman who travel to a strange land in order to save it from destruction. With the help of friends who are discovered along the way they gain the power needed to succeed in their missions. Through the series it shows their strengths and their weaknesses in their travels and the love that unfolds between them and the people around them.
With a healthy dose of fantasy, both shows are centred around an innocent high school girl getting sucked into another world, and being elevated to a revered status. Of course, they also need a large team of bishounen to look after them.The struggles they face trying to save their respective worlds are interesting, and fun. Haruka Naru takes itself a little more seriously, although Fushigi does have some very dark moments.Both shows were a little hit and miss at times, but I finished them and did quite enjoy my time spent on them.
Fushigi Yugi and Haruka are similar in many ways. They are both based on schoolgirls who are seperated from their real world and entered into a historic chinese time, where they must fight to save a land. The four gods, the seven warriors, the priestess, and antagonists who have a past they want to take vengeance for; is all mentioned in both storylines. If you like one, you will enjoy the other.
Essentially you have the main female character swept into another time and place where she has to save this new world. The main differences is that in FY there's a lot more romance and calling of Tomohome's name. Also in FY there's two priestesses. If you liked one you'll defintely like the other.
I seriously recommend Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Hachiyou Shou~ and Fushigi Yuugi because both of the main characters are priestesses, both have protectors all of which are guys and both stories have something to do with the four gods Susaku,Byakko,Genbu, and Seiryuu
Both are about a girl who comes from another world and has handsome guys around her. She is the miko and the men around her are her protectors.
Hitomi was just a normal high school girl, until she was taken by the mysterious Van Fanel and dropped into a world of romance, magic and giant sword-wielding armor suits! Now Van, pilot of the famed armor suit Escaflowne; and Hitomi, whose hobby of predicting the future just became a frightening reality, must work together and fight the advanced technology of Zaibach: a force who want to shape Gaea to their visions of "peace". Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.
Ok, Fushigi Yuugi was definitely a "girly" show, but that's not why im recommending Escaflowne. While it doesn't have a colorful cast of supporting characters -- each with different personalities and powers to guard someone -- what it does have is good animation, nice fantasy elements, and some nice action mixed in with some pretty decent drama. Which is what Fushigi Yuugi was for the most part.
Vision of Escaflowne is a difficult title to recommend for due to the fact that it effectively mixes so many different elements from both shoujo and shounen anime. Because of this, one can easily find anime that matches part of the show, but pinning down a show that matches the entire anime is more than a little difficult. At any rate, Fushigi Yuugi is an almost perfect fit... for part of Escaflowne. Essentially, if your favorite part of Escaflowne was the shoujo melodrama, then you can't really go wrong with Fushigi Yuugi. However, if you preferred the mecha action, the absolute insanity of Dilandau or the general feeling of the new world, then this recommendation becomes much less credible. On the other side, if you enjoyed Fushigi Yuugi, then you're almost guaranteed to like *part* of Escaflowne. Either way, I make no guarantees, but the similarities between the two shows are too much to ignore.
Both Fushigi Yugi and Escaflowne are epic tales of a girl being transported into another world full of magic and mystery. Both also include moments of romance and even a bit of comedy.
Both anime are about a girl attending high school who appears in another world and tries to save it. Both anime contain magic, action, predestination and romance.They both deal with the power of our wishes.
Fushigi Yugi and Escaflowne are very similar in the sense that a very pure hearted girl is suddenly sent to another world. Both Hitomi and Miaka go through similar circumstances such as meeting a two handsome men and choosing between them, they both play huge roles in creating peace in their new worlds, and they miss their former world, family and friends. The action is very different, but great in both cases, the fate of the world rests on their shoulders, and the love stories are so romantic.
If you loved Van in Escaflowne, you will love Tamahome from Fushigi Yugi (and vice versa). Enough said!
Although seemingly different on the surface, both stories involve a young girl unexpectedly caught up in a different universe full of magic, with powers of her own that she wasn't even aware of before. Also, both animes involve a love triangle between the girl and 2 guys.
Fushigi Yugi and Escaflowne are very obvious recs for each other. They both share the girl-in-a-strange-land premise, but for two very different situations. The worlds they each travel to are not similar, but the feel of both shows is. If you enjoyed discovering a new land with one of these series- plan a trip with the other!
Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.
The plot of Juuni Kokki is MUCH darker (and better, as far as I'm concerned), but it has a similar story to Fushigi Yugi: people get transported to a magical world, need to find their way home, and so on. If you liked FY, check out the much better, much darker, and more political Juuni Kokki.
Both Fushigi Yugi and Twelve Kingdoms involve a similar situation, where a girl from our world is transported to another realm full of magic and mystery. The story is epic as well, involving a lot of story twists and some surprises.
Imagine Fushigi Yugi without the love stories and you'll get The Twelve Kingdoms. It has less bishōnen characters and more fighting, but besides that it's almost the same.
Both series deal with ordinary Japan girls who suddenly found twemselves transported into the alternate world. In the fantasy world, the quest full of danger and adventures awaits. And this great journery/adventure will change their lives, and the lives of the people of the fantasy world.
Both anime are about a girl attending high school who appears in other world and have to fight to save the kingdom even if it means fighting her friend. The story of both is well developed and sometimes dramatic and it will make you watch it till the end. Unlike Twelve Kingdoms, Fushigi Yugi is also romantic and more funny.
A lot like Fushigi Yugi. Earth girl is transported to this ancient world and is a pritesss/empress and has to save their world. Both are very close in similarity for genres, fantasy, adventure, magic, super power, martial arts, etc. Both are great animes as well :].
Both anime are about a girl that is transported into another world and having to deal with the politics involved with being in this new land along with holding powers of her own in the world eventually. The Twelve Kingdoms is much better with the story telling and action where Fushigi Yugi lies on the romance side a little more. You'll probably enjoy both if you liked the other.
i recommend FY and 12 kingdoms because both main characters are warped into a different world differ from there own
Awayuki Himeno is a normal schoolgirl who is in a bind: her father’s remarriage yielded two new cruel stepsisters, and to top it off, she meets seven men who call themselves Liefe Knights. They reveal to her that she's a Pretear, someone who can lend powers to them when their powers aren’t enough to defeat the evil creatures called mayouchuu. Now, she has to fight the ambitious Fenrir, whose only purpose is to leech the life force from all living beings. Can Himeno save the world and find a way to deal with her growing feelings for one of the Liefe Knights?
Both heroines in Fushigi Yugi and Pretear have a partner who has a cold and grumpy facade but actually is very warm and gentle at their core . Both guys harsh most of the time to the heroines. So if you like that love-hate relationship where the heroine is often times the one who comes out stupid (^__^), careless and very cute/charming, I recommend these series.
I think Fushigi Yugi and Pretear are very similar, minus the time travel element I suppose. Attractive boys protect a girl with undiscovered abilities, and there is a girl who is willing to rise to the occasion.
These two anime are the same in the basic structure; characters transcend worlds, and everyday girls accept responsibilities and become extraordinary heroines. Both Miaka and Himeno have that off-beat character design that makes them achieve for goals we see aren't in reach; for instance Himeno's existence in the upper class family and Miaka's entrance into an elite high school. Then, we see them becoming lovely maidens with servants to help and be protected by. And of course, the love affair between servant and master is always a juicy one.
Both animes have a heroine who is asked to take on a responsibility to save the world. In both animes, the heroine has many people that assist her (all males) of whom she wouldn't be able to accomplish her mission without. Both animes also have a romance between the heroine and a member of the group assisting her, though in Fushigi Yuugi the romance is more defined and goes further.
Both anime are about a girl who tries to save the world with the help of several friends. They are both well animated. Bothseries combine romance, fun, magic and action.They follow really about the same progression, although Pretear is too short to be as developed as Fushigi Yugi.
Pretear and Fushigi Yugi are similar in many ways:
Throughout the anime, I also had the gut feeling that both of these animes were alike. I believe that if you like one of these, you will definitely like the other.
The style of each show is the same in that they are shojo-type romances full of action and adventure. They also throw a normal, high school girl into a magical setting where she is the "chosen one" destined to complete a mission that will save people from destruction. They are also both reverse harem shows with all the love traingles that go with them. The main characters in both shows are very similar: clumsy, brave when they need to be, dedicated to their mission, and just a little more dedicated to getting the guy they want. The villians in each are similar too-no one really wants to hurt them because they are not who they seem to be. Overall the shows had a very similar feel and if you liked one I really think you will like the other.
Fushigi Yuugi was honestly an amazing show, yes, it might have been girly but each character had screen time and there were so many emotional parts. Pretear is similar, in the way there's a lot of guys and one girl but it, too, has a different touch on your feelings. If you enjoyed watching either, then you should watch the other . It'll be an enriching anime experience <3 8D
