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.
Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
Fushigi Yuugi and Princess Tutu may not be very very much alike, but they have their similarities.
Both animes are fantasy animes with a bit of (well, for Fushigi Yuugi it's a LOT) romance. Princess Tutu is about a girl who's trying to get the princes' heart back, and Fushigi Yuugi is about a girl trying to save the world. Like I said, they have not very much in common, but I'm sure that, if you liked Fushigi Yuugi, you'll like Princess Tutu. Especially if you like ballet.
