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…

My-Hime

My-Hime

Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?

Both series are superficially silly magical girl shows, but have dark underpinnings beneath them. They also feature over-the-top fights scenes and deal with trust and hope as central themes.

Rozen Maiden

From voodoo dolls to x-ray specs, there's nothing this middle schooler can't get enough of -- until a strange package arrives one day.

It's actually sort of difficult to explain why you would like both shows, but the fan bases for these two overlap quite heavily. Both the Nanoha and Rozen Maiden franchises definitely fall within the "magical girl" genre, but in many ways innovate past the genre's conventions and provide a similarly entertaining experience despite a lack of directly shared traits.

Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon

Life can be tough when you're a teenager. Enter Tsukino Usagi, an average, if somewhat clumsy, junior high student whose voracious appetite for sweets and capacity for tears are offset by her enthusiasm for life. Her normal existence is suddenly turned upside down when a talking cat named Luna comes into her life. Suddenly, Usagi finds herself with the ability to transform into the superhero known as Sailor Moon. Fighting the occasional monster may be the least of her worries, though...

Both Sailor Moon and Nanoha are magical girl series. Both of these series follow the young girls as they discover their power. adjust to a new - and more dangerous - life and begin their quests. While Sailor Moon has a more comedic and monster-of-the-week feel to it, and the two protagoists have completely different personalities, if you liked one, it's worth trying the other.

Scryed

Scryed

Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.

The rivalries featured in Scryed and Nanoha mirror each other quite well. Kazuma and Nanoha, fighting out of emotion; and Ryuho and Fate, fighting out of duty. They are truly reminiscent. Also, both anime utilize flashy super-powers in their battles, and both have a fair bit more to them plot-wise than it may initially seem. Those who enjoyed one of these two should certainly consider watching the other.

Shakugan no Shana

Shakugan no Shana

Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?

Shakugan no Shana and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha are action packed anime with excellent animation. The protagonists are cute young girls who fight a lot. Both use intelligent talking devices/relics. I also found that I enjoyed the openings and endings of both anime; the endings of each episode give a good lingering feeling.
