One fateful day in present day Tokyo, a strange alien bell appeared in the skies; afterwards, it transformed into a giant cherry tree and took root in the middle of a busy intersection. Kitanohashi High School’s "Magic Users Club" is compelled to use their magic to relocate the tree; however shortly thereafter a mysterious individual begins to follow the club members! Soon Sae begins to experience strange dreams and the club members' magic becomes even more problematic than usual. Can the group bring their magic under control before the stalker's plot is revealed?
Tohru Honda is a compassionate girl who is down on her luck. Her mother having recently died, she has been forced to camp out in the woods for shelter. However, things start to turn around once she is invited to live with class hunk Yuki Sohma and his family... but all is not as it seems! Yuki's family is burdened with a dark curse which causes them to turn into the animals of the Chinese zodiac once hugged by a member of the opposite sex... and Honda may be the only one who can help them.
Both Fruits Basket and Magic Users Club focus on girls who will do everything they can before bothering those around them. No matter how big the task at hand is, neither Sae nor Tohru would ever dream of asking for help! Mix in a dash of the supernatural, a hint of comedy, and the requirements of high school, and you'll see why these shows fit well together.
Combined, the ever-hungry airheaded Milfeulle, voluptuous Ranpha, cold-as-ice Vanilla, regal Mint and aggressive gun-wielding Forte make up the Galaxy Angels -- an intergalactic team dedicated to finding the elusive Lost Technology! Joined by the once suicidal missile AI (now in the body of a stuffed animal), these girls must complete their mission at all costs! From finding lost pets to helping a pizzeria in debt, to infiltrating outposts full of monkeys, the work of a Galaxy Angel is never complete...
Both Galaxy Angel and Magic Users Club are episodic shows with loose plots that follow a team of five characters on a mission. Neither show ever gets terribly intense, but you can watch either one of them without having a ton of brain cells to spare, and some days, that's exactly what you need. :)
In the town of Narasakicho, an eternal rainbow grants the townsfolk the "Gift" of magic, which they can use once in their lives. Haruhiko Amami is a normal student who takes his Gift very seriously, feels the urge to fix misused Gifts, and lives his life spoiled by his crazy childhood friend Kirino. But when the boy's foster sister Riko suddenly returns to town, Haruhiko's life becomes more complicated! Now, He must now deal with Riko's fan club, the girls' rivalry and watermelon squashing, all while struggling to discover the identity of a mysterious witch who likes to give away trouble-causing fake Gifts!
Both Gift and Magic Users Club have humoristic situations and the same light content. They also both feature a romantic storyline, though Gift is more emotional and Magic Users Club is more comedic.
Karin is a vampire, but as fate would have it she is a freak among her own kind; for Karin doesn’t drink the blood of her counterparts – she is cursed to be a blood maker, forcing her to inject her extra blood into her victims. What’s worse is that if she doesn’t find an outlet for the blood in time, it explodes in a massive nose bleed of impressive volume. In Karin's twisted day-going state, she finds it nearly impossible to find safe victims; so, nose bleeds are a major problem. When transfer student and new classmate Usui Kenta proves to have exactly the kind of emotions her vampire nature most enjoys, she finds herself in comedic dire straights!
The main characters in Karin and Magic Users Club! are quite similar; neither girl thinks she fits in well with those around her and feels really insecure about her abilities. (For Karin, it's her un-vampire powers, and for Sae, it's her magical skills that cause her problems.) In addition, the characters surrounding the lead are similar enough that I kept forgetting whether I was watching Maki or Nanaka at any given moment.
If you want a simple show about a teen girl who struggles to fit in with her peers, has special powers, and tries to find love while juggling everything else, you'll probably enjoy these two. :)
Valentine's Day is approaching, and young Mami-san is apprehensive. She wants to give chocolates to her crush, Ishida, but can't seem to build up the nerve to do so.

Why does your first love need to be scary when your best friend's got your back? ^_^ Magical Chocolate and Magic Users Club! TV follow sweet girls who are afraid to confess their love to the boys they like but have really supportive friends behind them every step of the way.
