Synopsis:

Nanoha used to be a normal grade school student until one day she found a ferret in the woods -- but he's no ordinary ferret! His name is Yuuno, he hails from another world, and he needs Nanoha’s help to complete his mission: to capture the Jewel Seeds (mysterious stones that imbue their wielder with great power) that fell to Earth. Along with Yuuno, Nanoha must now collect the Seeds and protect her world, but she isn’t alone. A rival is also trying to collect the Seeds for an unknown purpose, and only Nanoha has the power to stop her…

D.N.Angel

D.N.Angel

For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!

Both D.N.Angel and Nanoha follow a young protagonist that has to learn how to use their powers to collect dangerous magical objects and prevent them from harming others. They also each have a rival with a dark past that challenges them in their goals--in D.N.Angel, Daisuke has Satoshi, the young prodigy police detective that wants to capture Dark, and Nanoha has Fate, a rival magician who is also collecting the Jewel Seeds. Their relationships are similar in each show, which gives a similar feel to each despite their diffences in setting and plot. Nanoha is definitely aimed more at a "otaku", young adult crowd with its ecchi moments and attempts to do something new with the Magical Girl genre, while D.N.Angel is more of a straight shoujo with a bigger focus on romance (and the relationship between the two cute guys, instead of the cute girls). But if you're looking for another magical transformation show with a rivalry in the middle of it, then both of these shows should be enjoyable t you!

Happiness!

Happiness!

In a world not unlike our own, mages are commonplace and schools are separated between normal students and magic users. Yuma Kohinata is a student at one such school, Mizuhosaka Academy. On the way home from buying chocolates with his androgynous friend Jun, Yuma is given chocolates from school idol Haruhi Kamisaka; things become even more complex once the magic wing of the school has a gas explosion, displacing all of the magic students into the normal section – including Haruhi! Now, Yuma finds himself thrust into the world of magic, and must deal with the various women who vie for his affections; can he juggle his priorities and continue to pass his classes?

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Happiness! are both light-hearted shows that revolve around teenage girls and their magic. In both cases, things are resolved without any lives at risk or any hearts broken, so people who are looking for a simple show to chase away the darkness of the real world should enjoy both of these.

Though Nanoha feels like it's aimed at a lower age group, both it and the Rayearth OVA are fantasy filled stories that are full of adventure, excitement, and wonder. Though Nanoha might seem a little more girlie at first, it has a sci fi feel that is just as interesting as Rayearth's plot. If you liked one, odds are you'd like the other.

Both of these shows have an odd balance of magic and technology. It seems that magic just might be the best way to attack enemies from another dimension and mysterious ships from outer space.
