Thesupernatural transformations reminded me of the zodiac transfromations. The stroy lines are different but the romance theme of loving someone for who they are even if they hate themselves is there.

While the heroine for each show are quite different, the setting and cast of excentric personalities with supernatural afflictions are very reminiscent of each other.  They also share an underlying story of healing from warped childhoods through love and friendship.

Princess Tutu

Princess Tutu

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?

Both of these shows are much deeper than they appear on the surface.  They start out light hearted and silly, yet get more and more complicated and dark as they progress.  They are also both part of a very unique set of shows where the more you learn about the characters and their backstories, the more your opinion of them changes, and no one is quite who they appear to be on the surface.  In addition, in both shows the characters can transform into magical beings from the past, and those transformations play a major role in defining their personalities.  But the heart of both shows is character exploration, not magical school girls.  Both shows leave you with a similar feeling, and if you liked one for the emotional rollarcoaster and the way it surprised you at every turn, then you will like other.

Well it might seem a little silly at first and you may think that's it's nothing like inu X boku ss but believe me when I say if you liked one you will most definitely like the other. 

Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima

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?

Holy moly. There are so many similarities between these two.

  • Both have a tsundere female lead
  • Both have a somewhat subservient male lead pretty much dedicated to the female lead
  • Both heavily feature fantasy elements
  • Both have a similar ratio of comedy to romantic scenes
  • Both have an interesting cast of support characters

Earl and Fairy

Earl and Fairy

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 anime are romances with a twist of the supernatural.  The stories themselves revolve around different issues.  In Inu x Boku the story is more about character development, while there is a sort of adventure plot driving Earl and Fairy.  All in all they're both solid stories told in just a few episodes.

Both animes have loli/small Tsundere type female characters/ Lead male characters wanting to protect. Both animes have a supernatural, rommance undertone theme going on.  If you liked one you'll most likely enjoy the other.
