If you liked the Happiness! anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
If you have seen either of these animes you will undoutfully like the other. They both go along the lines of the magical schoolgirls Vs. one protaganist and have one or more of the schools students after them. Both have there funny parts but more so in Zero. Both are good animes so I recomend seeing one if youve seen the other.
Zero no Tsukaima and Happiness are two of a kind I think.
They are both mostly a one on one romance that takes a sideline to the story. Both center around a magic school with a female mage lead character and a romantic interest that is more than he seems.Though the female leads are exact opposites of each other...
both take place in a magical world though the story in zero no tsukaima is more engaging. also both involve a school that teaches magic.
Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.
Both of these animes are Romances. Both also revolves around magic or Fairies. The Romance of the animes are related to memories.
As in Happiness!, Yuma is a male character who plays a role that pretwnds to have no magical power. He is infact the strongest person there. He doesn't use his magic because of his memories against his mother. Haruhi is a girl from his past, And she remembers Yuma from the past as a super powerful mage with power that was very warm and good hearted. That was the last time he ever used his power as he made all the gravity go wack. I just recentally finished this anime, And i really loved the art work in the anime.
As in Earl and Fairy, Lydia has a past memory too. The memory makes it hard for her to fall in love. Edgar is a prince who says to Lydia that he loves her very much. Both Lydia and Edgar makes plans to kill each other thoughout the episodes. Every time either of them plans to kill the other they dont; but instead the events does a 180 and the other does attempt of suiside >_> By Pills, Legendary swords, etc etc
I really liked watching both of these animes, I know you will too.
if you're looking for sweet romance shows, which involves fairies and other magic aspects then look no further, Hakushaku to Yousei and Happiness! are the perfect choices. Both of them deal with the past memories of the main protagonists, both of them are very comedic as well as dramatic at some points. So if you like one of this shows be sure to check the other one as well.
Kouhei Hasekura has changed schools so many times that he’s convinced he’ll never make friends, but luckily for the boy, he’s just transferred for the last time into Shuchikan Academy, a prestigious high school on Tamatsu Island. After being welcomed warmly by student council vice president Erika Sendou on his first day, Kouhei’s good vibes quickly disintegrate when she screams and runs away as they’re about to shake hands. What’s more, the boy soon discovers that Erika and her brother, the student council president Iori, are anything but typical: they’re vampires! Can Kouhei find his place at Shuchikan Academy and finally make true friends, including the vampire who can’t seem to tolerate standing near him?
Fortune Arterial and Happiness! are both about a rather mellow guy (not boring or even weak, just slightly mellow) with classmates who have some sort of power. They're both quasi-harem, and proud of it. But these two anime succeed in keeping my attention. They both:
1. Had an element of sweet romance.
2. Combated potential flops in the ho-hum harem school romance ideas with something fantastical: vampires in Fortune Arterial and magic in Happiness!.
3. Stopped themselves just short of chasing me off with too much fan service.
Happiness! stays a bit more focused on the magic side of things than Fortune Arterial did on the vampire side in the first several episodes. However, they both end up being quite interesting in that departement. Interesting enough to make up for any harem tendencies (sorry. As a girl, I can't help that these details don't charm me).
To sum it up: if you liked one, I am 95% sure you'll like the other.
Kazuki Shikimori is a 17-year old junior studying at Aoi Academy, an elite school for the magically gifted. However, unlike enrollment to the school would suggest, his magical prowess is below-average. In fact, he can only use magic eight times in his life, or he will die. But not all is lost: Kazuki's family tree includes the latent genetic material for magical greatness. After that information leaks out, Kazuki suddenly becomes the most popular male student in the school, and girls from powerful magician families begin chasing him to get his genes.
Nanoha used to be a normal grade school student until one day she found a ferret in the woods -- but he's no ordinary ferret! His name is Yuuno, he hails from another world, and he needs Nanoha’s help to complete his mission: to capture the Jewel Seeds (mysterious stones that imbue their wielder with great power) that fell to Earth. Along with Yuuno, Nanoha must now collect the Seeds and protect her world, but she isn’t alone. A rival is also trying to collect the Seeds for an unknown purpose, and only Nanoha has the power to stop her…
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Happiness! are both light-hearted shows that revolve around teenage girls and their magic. In both cases, things are resolved without any lives at risk or any hearts broken, so people who are looking for a simple show to chase away the darkness of the real world should enjoy both of these.
