Synopsis:

Sora is a sixteen year old girl who has travelled to the US to join the Kaleido Stage, one of the greatest circuses in existence. However, as luck would have it, she arrives to the audition late, which almost costs her the chance of a lifetime. Fortunately, she manages to join the Kaleido Stage anyways due to the compassion of Kalos, the owner of the troupe. With the help of her friends and Fool, the perverted spirit of the stage who has the ability to predict the future, Sora will overcome trials and tribulations and she struggles to become the Kaleido Star.

On the surface the two anime don't seem like they have a lot in common but the thing that links them are the characters. If you enjoyed the characters from ether of these anime you'll love the other.

Both anime have a young girl striving to get along in a new life. The young girls struggle with new families, whether adopted or circus. In addition, the animation styles are similar; both are very bright and colorful with airy themes.

While these series have little in common when it comes to theme, genre, plot or character sub-types; they are very similar in tone. Both Stellvia and Kaleido Star are very hopeful shows with a complementary amount of realistic drama and a moderate dose of comedic relief.

Without being too sappy or too cute, these shows are near opposites to many of the darker and more twisted shows out there. If you are looking for something epic and uplifting and you liked one of these shows, you will surely like the other.
