both series have a similar "feeling" to them, they both play in feudal china/chinalike environment so the setting is slightly different from the usual japanese sengoku jidai if you liked the tragic lovestory aspect in one of the animes you definitely should watch the other one

Now, regardless of the fact that these are both made by CLAMP, I still am recommending this pair for unrelated reasons. The dark aspect and fantasy is prevalent in both of these, with a giant group of characters who each has their own quirks. The lengths are much different, but still, try one out if you liked the other.

Peach Girl

Peach Girl

Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!

It seems funny how best friends can turn out to be just so detrimental to a relationship! Some friends are out for revenge or just out to get you for jealousy reasons. This seems to be the case in both Peach Girl and Fushigi Yugi. Unfortunately, the main characters do not know how to deal with these impeding forces at work; will they be able to overcome their problems and focus on the love they have for each other?

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.

Harukanaru and FY are both about a girl who falls into a new world, becomes a priestess, and gets handsome guys to protect her. If you like reverse harem anime, I would recommend them both!

Being transported to another world, discovering you have magical powers, defeating evil and love interests no one can give either main character a break, if its love triangles or evil intentions flying their way, theirs no stopping them.
