One clear festive evening, Lucia, a mermaid princess, rescues a young boy from drowning. With him, she leaves the source of her beautiful singing voice: a pink pearl necklace. Several years later, Lucia has grown into a young woman, and embarks on a quest to the human world to reclaim her pearl and find her lost love.
Both of these shows are cute magical girl shows aimed at a younger audiance. Full of repetative scenes and transformation sequences, the general plot line is always the same for both. If you enjoyed one, you'd love the other.
Yoko is a young would-be singer who is traveling to Tokyo to make it big; Saki is a young would-be actress who is doing the same. After meeting aboard a train, the two girls decide to join forces and find their place in the big city. Securing housing from the unlikeliest of friends, Saki, and especially Yoko, are noticed by talent scouts and passers-by alike. With a positive attitude and unbreakable spirit, Yoko and Saki will encounter rivals, meet new friends, and work together to make their way to the top!
Looking for saccharine, music-filled series that are clearly aimed at little girls? Don't miss out on the craptastic Mermaid Melody and Youkoso Yoko. I hated both, but can see how they'd appeal to the same audience.
As a small child, Souta lost his mother. He was left only with a fairy tale she had told him, of the world split into two by the will of God, into a world of science and a world of magic. Now, it has become apparent that this tale is at least partly true, and that Souta is the all-important Key of Elde, the linchpin of our world of science. To protect him, the fairy musketeer Akazukin (Red Riding Hood) and her fellow musketeers Shirayukihime (Snow White) and Ibarahime (Sleeping Beauty) must draw him into their own, magical world of Fandavale. Along the way, they must protect him from the wiles of the wicked Cendrillon (Cinderella) and her minions Hansel and Gretel.
Both of these shows feature girls who have magical powers, unique attacks, and the desire to save the world. One of the girls alone is threatening, but all of them together are practically unstoppable. If you like battles won by love and courage, these are just your style! :)
In addition, both Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch and Fairy Musketeers play with legends and fairy tales that have existed in our world for years, so if you like shows with a childish twist on myths you've heard before, you may enjoy these.
Mirumo is the selfish and chocolate-loving prince of a magical kingdom. As the successor of the kingdom, his father wants him to travel to the human world and study -- but Mirumo has other plans! Due to his unwillingness to go, the King declares that Mirumo must be married at once to his betrothed, the beautiful and clingy Ririmu. Things get even worse for Mirumo when Minami Kaede, a shy girl with a crush on the handsome Yuuki, wishes upon a magical cup for a fairy to give her the love she desires -- thus pulling Mirumo into the world of humans! But Mirumo and Kaede are not alone; Ririmu soon follows to help Yuuki, and Yashichi the Ninja to help Minami's rival for Yuuki's love, Hidaka Azumi! Hilarious antics abound in the new and complicated lives of these friends and enemies!
Mermaid Melody and Selfish Fairy are remarkably similar; both have various cute creatures/monsters and villains who are just as cute, and both have a female protagonist who is trying in vain to find a boy she loves. Beyond that, they just feel identical (and are aimed at younger folks). Mermaid Melody is a little more of a magical girl/transformation anime, while Selfish Fairy is a bit more random and slapstick. Nevertheless, if you liked one, you'd surely like the other.
