Shamanic Princess

Shamanic Princess

In the Guardian World, there live magic users and Neutralizers whose goal is to protect the Throne of Yord -- the source of their power. When the Throne is stolen from its place of rest, it’s up to Tiara and her furry familiar Japolo to find it… but things aren’t always as they seem. Beneath the façade of a simple painting lies the true identity of the Throne of Yord, and beneath the pretense of a simple theft lies the real reason it was stolen… a reason that may end up costing Tiara and her friends their very lives!

A similarly dark series with a somewhat epic scope. The animators also worked on the original Rayearth series, which is a plus.

With a similar dark art style and atmosphere, both Rayearth and Shamanic Princess deal with a mysterious shadow world and its sinister influence on ours. Though the creature companions and characterisations are rather similar, the settings are less so, however if you liked one the other is bound to entertain.
sothis
Magic Knight Rayearth and Shamanic Princess might not be that similar as far as plot, but they both have a remarkably similar feel. Each contains a set of heroines that are trapped in a fantasy world in which they can't escape, and have a great deal of fighting and conversations. It's hard to put my finger on why I think you'd like one if you liked the other... just try it out!

Escaflowne

Escaflowne

Hitomi was just a normal high school girl, until she was taken by the mysterious Van Fanel and dropped into a world of romance, magic and giant sword-wielding armor suits! Now Van, pilot of the famed armor suit Escaflowne; and Hitomi, whose hobby of predicting the future just became a frightening reality, must work together and fight the advanced technology of Zaibach: a force who want to shape Gaea to their visions of "peace". Follow Hitomi in her struggles against both these forces who seek to conquer this world, and her own confused heart.

Sharing the rather odd combinations of magic and mecha, action and character based drama, Rayearth and Escaflowne are bound to appeal to the same audience. Both have a rather epic, apocalyptic feel and protagonists who spend a lot of time worrying about issues such as identity, fate and friendships.

Both these series involve a young schoolgirl(s) in a strange world and mecha combat. Also themes of friendship are central to both animes. Whilst Magic Knight Rayearth is more intense, the similarities of both series is quite obvious so if you like one, check out the other.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Well, they are two series with world ending giant robot battles. The comparison draws itself.
NekoRocket
Evangelion and MKR OVA feature rather unconventional mecha as young men and women work and fight to defend what they believe in. The stories are gripping and the character designs are really well done.

X TV

X TV

Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven now must fight for the destruction or safety of the world. But is this troubled Kamui really the key to saving the world?

Definitely has a similar apocolyptic vice. And both are from Clamp. Watch!
sothis
X TV is admittely a whole lot darker than RayEarth, but both have a very unique apocalyptic feel to them. I can't make a direct corollation, but the mood and even the music remind me of the other. If you liked one, check out the other.
watch it online now!

MKR OVA and Princess rouge are stories about learning to depend on others and believe in yourself. If you like stories with lots of magic and a flair for the dramatic, you should check these out.
