If you liked the Kaiketsu Zorori anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
When the pirate cat Flint leaves young Jim and his mouse companion Gran a map to Treasure Island, the two find themselves swept up in a glorious adventure. On the high seas the duo encounters sea creatures and destroyed ships galore; but most importantly, they find themselves prisoners aboard the ship of the dreaded Long John Silver. Alongside Kathy, Flint’s granddaughter, Jim and Gran will brave violent storms, try to keep the map safe, and ultimately try their best to find the treasure before their captors do first!
Kaiketsu Zorori and Animal Treasure Island could have come from the same mold. Animal protagonists run rampant in both, and each has a family-friendly, fun feel. It could be a gut feeling, but just try it on for size.
Alice is a preteen girl who believes in magic, much to the dismay of her parents and peers. But when she finds herself transported into a dreamlike world filled with magic, forest sprites, and witches, she finds out that magic is sometimes not all it’s cracked up to be. The witches of this world must capture forest sprites for use in casting their spells, and magical hierarchy dictates that those at the bottom must compete to get to the top. Dream or not, Alice must use her positive attitude to show these witches that magic should be used to spread happiness, first and foremost!
Zorori is fairly kiddy compared to Tweeny Witches, but TW has a similar sort of fun feeling to it. This is a very hard recommendation to explain, so just call it a gut feeling - if you liked Zorori, try out a few episodes of Tweeny Witches.
Charon is a normal, quiet and rural planet inhabited by not-so-normal creatures: Pandalians! These gentle creatures live their days tilling the fields, watching TV on TV bean trees, and taking trips to the city; but soon, the Fairy Lord has prophesized that Charon will soon be destroyed, and it’s up to his daughter, Tim, to travel to Charon to find the savior that will save the world. Through a series of unfortunate events she chooses Toby, a kind young Pandalian who wants nothing to do with this task. Now, Toby, Tim and the rest of their friends must seek out the seven magical beans that can help put a stop to the evil Demon Lord Audy’s plans!
Pandalian and Zorori have a remarkably similar mood and feel. Each is aimed at a young audience, has a variety of animal characters, and is filled with a mix of lighthearted comedy, friendship, and fantasy. If you liked one, you'd probably like the other.
When the loveable Perro was banished from the kingdom of cats (for the treacherous crime of saving a mouse!), his wanderings led him to the house of Pierre, a young lad who was mistreated by his greedy brothers. Thrown out in the cold, the duo then traveled to a great kingdom where they laid eyes on the princess Rosa, who soon would be wed to a wealthy suitor. Who best to marry her but ... the son of a poor farmer?! With Perro's help, Pierre might just stand a chance -- that is, if he can fool the royal family and defeat the evil Lucifer, who wants Rosa all for himself!
Not only are Puss in Boots and Zorori both based on popular stories, but each has a lighthearted tone and is aimed at youngsters. If you are into animal characters who swashbuckle their way into adventure and fun, both of these will appeal to you.
