If you liked the Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
It's been seven years since Yuuichi Aizawa returned to the city he once lived in as a child. Though many things happened to Yuuichi in his past, he can only remember bits and pieces. His parents left Yuuichi in the care of Akiko once again, and this time, he will attend the same school as his cousin Nayuki. Many different girls appear before him, and some of them seem to know him from his past. Yuuichi must now recover his memories of the dark secrets that he erased from his heart, before he loses his precious ones.
Have you ever been sick and tired of the world we live in? So much, that you've tried any means possible to escape it? Zed shares the same feelings as we all do. In the smog ridden, and sunless world of Calm, people manage to scrape by on the bare minimum. Fed up with living in this hellhole, Zed looks for an outlet to another world. Beating down and smashing every door in his sight, he hopes that if he believes strong enough, his gateway will open -- open to a place beyond his imagination, and where his life will have meaning. After finally being transported to another world full of nature and endless battles, Zed soon comes to realize that his life of purpose has just begun.
both anime bring two best friends from another to world to a different one. also, these bestfriends change attitude toward eachother. they are giving the task to save the new world and the people on it. yet kiba doesn't have so much romance like fushigi yugi does. i totally recommend these anime bacause if you saw one you will love the other one...!
Haruka, the only known survivor of a cataclysmic global war, has taken refuge with a diverse group of sentient robots with distinct personalities. They attempt to survive in the desolate post-war environment; however their supplies are limited and the military robots are still active and hostile. Haruka remains optimistic that other humans may have survived the war, but their persistent search efforts have failed to locate any survivors. Is she destined to live her life without any human contact?
Both shows have a central girl who is protected by a band of friends who are like family. The shows each have a mixture of light and dark tones. Also, both characters, Angela and Noriko, have a bad relationship with the main character until they warm up. I just think there is a common feel.
Time has passed since the incident with Shinou and Soushuu, and Yuuri has returned to Shin Makoku to resume his normal duties as Maoh.

Soon Yuuri meets the mysterious young king of Small Shimaron, but his new acquaintance appears to have an agenda of his own.

These series both take you to a different world, literally. They are funny, serious, lovely, dramatic and filled with action and plots that tkae your mind to new heights. If you liked one, you are sure to love the other too.
