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?
The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.
FMA: Brotherhood and My-Hime are both epic tales of friendship, tragedy, superpowers and protecting what's dear to you. They both have strong character development and generally strong-willed main characters. If you enjoyed the feel and elements one of these shows had, make sure to check out the other.

Gatekeepers and My-Hime feature kids that discover they have extraordinary abilities, and must then protect their worlds.

Both anime have amazing fight scenes and blossoming romances.

Different genres and atmosphere, but there are similar elements presented. There are definitely some similar characters in Mai-HiMe and Happy Seven. The council president gave the same characteristics (physically and personality-wise). How they executed the story followed the same line; things were all fun and games in the beginning, and at the very end, the story spans out and there's a "last battle". There was also the "red star" deal.

At first glance, my-hime and ikkitousen might seem like a strange recommendation with ikkitousen being echhi... but both anime's revolve around students in school who have to battle. If you like that type of anime where the story revolves around school life... and a bit of beating each other up, and you enjoyed this anime, you are sure to like the other... just keep in mind ikkitousen has a lot of fanfare
It's Christmas Eve and Ichitaka, with his friend Yasuo, await a double date. While waiting for Iori and Nami, Ichitaka reminisces about his experience with his life-long crush Iori. There were many opportunities to finally confess his love to Iori, especially the time when the two were selected to arrange the freshman entrance ceremony; but Ichitaka was either too shy or often misunderstood. The biggest misunderstanding of all was when Ichitaka's childhood friend, Itsuki came to live in Ichitaka's home all the way from the United States...
I’s Pure and My-Hime start off with a high dramatic feeling. This feeling continues in each with relationship problems of the high school students who make up the main characters. The main characters seem to be in a high level of stress for most of the series trying to solve the problems and hand and realize how to deal with them.
