In the Middle Ages, a woman named Jeanne D'Arc claimed to hear God's voice. She led a lonely life and was burned at the stake, despite being the voice to lead France to victory in the Hundred Years War. In today's world, she is reincarnated as Maron Kusakabe, a girl whose mission is to prevent demons from stealing people's hearts. To do this, she must steal any artifact that they possess. Her best friend, Miyako, is a detective looking for the thief, without a clue that she's right under her nose. Will Maron be able to save the world from destruction, or will she be caught red-handed by her friend?

If you liked Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, I'd recommend Kamikaze Kaitiou Jeanne. Madoka Magica is well known as an anime that redefines the magical girl genre. It features dark aspects to this usually light-hearted type of show. Like-wise, Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne touches base on this aspect of magical girl life. Both characters also have a supernatural side-kick who plays a sizeable role in the show's plotline. Even though Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne is considerably older, and has plenty more episodes than Madoka, it also focuses on a school girl struggling to balance her two lives, and be the best magical girl possible.

Both animes seem to have a lot of things similar such as that they have magical girls. They seem really similar in a big way.

Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

Both of these series are deeply immersed in complex story elements and both are quite well versed in the amount of symbolism that is conveyed.
