When I saw this show, the first thing that crossed my mind was. "This looks a lot like Astrea testament !" They both have amazing art, they aren't really well-known and they're absolutely underrated.
Both story's evolve around Romance, Fairy's and Love triangles/Reverse harem. Also the storyline is really awesome!
Good Witch of the West and Earl and Fairy both have the same feeling to them dealing with magic and how to handle different relationships between the characters. The heroines both have the same types of ideals and try to do what they think is best for everyone and not just themselves.

Both anime have a fantasy setting.

The main heroines are a lot alike. They will do anything to be with the one they love and they are both determined to protect their world.
Both Romeo x Juliet and Good Witch of the West have similar types of main characters. They are each strong willed in their own ways, especially the heroines. They are determines to overcome everything for the bond of love they share.
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!

Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.

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?
In a way, both Good Witch and Tutu have two main characters and one love interest, and you can never decide who fits better with the love interest. Also, both use references from fairy tales. So if you liked one, try out the other; I'm sure you won't be disappointed!
Since General de Jarjayes of France’s Royal Guard always wanted a son, he brings up his only daughter Oscar to dress, fight, and behave like a man. When Oscar’s excellent swordsmanship wins her the honored position as bodyguard to Louis XVI’s new bride, Marie Antoinette, the Jarjayes household believes it can finally be proud. However, what nobody realizes is the pit of thorns the royal court in Versailles has become – with all its excessive opulence, it attracts not just those with status and wealth, but also those with ruthless ambition. To confound matters, Marie Antoinette turns out to be an airhead whose selfish actions are turning the starving population against her. Amidst the sordid schemes and terrible tragedies, and with the tide of history sweeping against the nobles, can Oscar protect her new King and Queen whilst upholding justice for the oppressed peasants of France?
Rose of Versailles, drama, romance and so much more. The same ambiance you can find in Astraea Testament.
Astraea Testament is of course a fantasy world. But the beautiful balls give you the same feeling as Rose of Versailles does and they wear similair outfits in both series. There is also romance and a fight for justice in both.
The animation is similair and very dramatically done (in a beautiful way)
I love them both and I think that anybody who likes one will like the other as well! But if you loved the history of Rose of Versailles you will not be satisfied with Astraea Testament.
