If you liked the Kannazuki no Miko anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
In the world of Daikuuriku, all children are born female; but once they become a young adult, they may choose which sex they will become. In this world which is at war with itself, the women of Simalacrum find themselves charged with the task of piloting the ancient machines known as Simoun in hopes of turning the tide of war. Though originally simple ceremonial machines, the most gifted of pilots can turn the glowing "ri maajon" of their rituals onto their enemies and obliterate them from the skies using these Simoun. However, it takes a special bond between two highly gifted girls to successfully pilot a Simoun. With the toll of blood and pain that these previously innocent girls are taking, how many will be able to carry on, even knowing that they are the only real thing standing between freedom and subjugation of their land?
Looking for a good and nice shoujo-ai/fantasy/mecha anime? Well you dont have to search that hard, Kannazuki no Miko and Simoun are very much alike in terms of genres but much different in terms of plot and characters.Even though the yuri and fantasy aspect from both of this anime are very much alike.So my guess is that if you seen and liked one of this two then you should try the other one as well
In proper yuri, action is rare enough. To find actiony science fiction, one generally has to look. Though not further than to either one of these.
More than that, these two both contain religious aspects – the female main characters are all priestesses. Simoun especially doesn't hold back on that aspect, including a religious debate that is nowhere to be seen in Kannazuki no Miko.
In any case, if you like one there is reason to watch the other.
Mari Wakatake is the sole survivor of an apparent island tsunami disaster that took place five years ago; she has been raised and schooled by her grandmother from that day. But now, she has been sent off to a boarding school in order to grow and make new relationships; and it is there that she meets Senkouji Hagino, a mysterious girl who is liked by everyone – everyone except for Mari. But Mari soon discovers that Hagino is not what she seems to be, and as Mari struggles to figure out Hagino and fit in at school, an alien race is maneuvering in the shadows for their conquest of an unsuspecting Earth. Little does Hagino know that she herself holds the key to the truth of Mari's past, as well as the key to her future.
Blue Drop and Kannazuki no Miko on one hand are very much alike mainly because of its main genres (shoujo-ai, mecha aspects which are pretty predominant) but very different in terms of story, plot.Still if you like one of them then you will definitely enjoy the other one as well.
Kagura and Yomi are two girls who have a bond that cannot be broken. While once they fought side by side against the supernatural forces that threaten the planet, fate had something different in store for these star-crossed companions. Yet to understand the present, one must first experience the past – a time before Kagura’s involvement with the Supernatural Disaster Prevention Agency. Always cheery and good-natured to a fault, the young Kagura first meets Yomi when she is invited into her home. Over time, the two battle malicious spirits and grow closer together – but soon, more terrifying foes begin to reveal themselves. A swarm of glowing blue butterflies and a mysterious stone are harbingers of darker things to come, and one thing’s for sure: Kagura and Yomi will never be the same.
It is hard to explain how these shows are similar without giving spoilers for the main connection lies near the end of each show. Both revolve around two girls who become very close like sisters. Kagura, from Ga-Rei-Zero, and Himeko, from Kannazuki no Miko, both struggle with father issues. Kagura's father is very strict and has communication issues while Himeko's father was abusive towards her. Kagura and Himeko end up living with their friend and are exposed to battles. The main reason I believe that you would enjoy both shows is because of the course the relationships take. The paths the anime travel are very similar.
Ritsuka has nowhere to run or hide. He lost his memories and his mother’s loving support, and then his brother -- his sole defender -- was brutally murdered. He is entirely alone until Soubi appears, saying the words he most wants to hear, but refuses to believe: “I love you and will do anything for you.” Flung into a world of intrigue and magic, where bonded pairs battle and only Soubi can fight for him, he struggles to find his brother’s killer. Yet he must also face the most bitter question of all: if you can't remember who you were, does that mean you don't know who you are?
Kannazuki no Miko and Lovless are both the kind of shows that things are not realling explained in. They are more about the romances of the couples. Both are also filled with the anger and saddness of the characters. Both are also fighting couples. In both shows though they never explain really why they are fighting, and both endings are somwhat never explained.
MKR is a Clamp anime about three girls who are taken from Tokyo during a school field trip, and transported into a fantasy world.
