Both anime begin with a blue stone that has strange powers, and then speak about some old and powerfull technology. Laputa is more childish, but the heroes are younger, and if you like the atmosphere of ghibli films, you can only like ^^ I recommand these 2, that have some great names of animation in their staff (Hideaki Anno (Evangelion;studio Gainax) for Nadia, and Miyazaki for Laputa(if you don't know about Miyazaki, stop all your downloads and watch his films and the ones from his studio !!(eg : Tonari no Totoro, Kaze no Tani no Nausica, mononoke hime, sen to chihiro no kamikakushi, neko no ongaeshi, Porco Rosso etc...)))
sothis

Laputa and Nadia are both adventurous tales that star a pair of youngsters, though Laputa clearly is the better choice as far as story and characters. If you liked Nadia, definitely check out the superior Laputa.

absolute

Laputa and Nadia are very similar. Both the stories develop around a blue stone which has magical powers and linked to a different technology. Characters are quite similar having mainly a boy who tries to help a girl and being involved in the adventure for doing so. The difference, beside the fact that one is a series and the other is a movie, is that Laputa has better graphic and style (because, after all, is Miyazaki) while Secret of Blue Water is simpler even if enjoyable. Considering this if you liked Nadia you will surely love Laputa and, on the opposite, if you liked Laputa you will find interesting Nadia.

Future Boy Conan

In AD 2008, mankind developed deadly weapons and eradicated most of the Earth and its people. 20 years later, a young boy named Conan and his 'grandpa', one of the last survivors of the devastation, live a peaceful life on Remnant Island.

Both Nadia and Future Boy Conan are based on famous novels (not the same one), but this is not why I'm making this recommendation. The experience and feel of both anime are similar; both titles are full of adventure. Future Boy Conan is set in the "future", Nadia is set in the past; but the two titles have overlapping themes of technological advances (Jean's inventions in Nadia) and developing the land (destruction of the world, and Remnant Island in Future Boy Conan).

sothis

Both Nadia and Future Boy Conan have a similar feel - two kids adventure around, dealing with villains and escaping to live another day. Both are aimed at kids and I think will appeal to the same audiences.

80 Days Around the World With Willy Fog

80 Days Around the World With Willy Fog

Detail-oriented, meticulous Willy Fog lives in London and is in the process of hiring a new butler. While at the pub that day, Willy finds himself faced with a fascinating question: how many days would it take to travel the world? While his comrades believe it would take three months, Willy wagers he can do it in only eighty days - a wager that his peers meet with a 20,000 pound reward if he is able to pull it off. Willy and his new butler set forth that very evening to complete their quest - but challenges await! A devious wolf has been hired to stop Willy from achieving his goal, and two nosy inspectors are on Willy's trail, certain that he was responsible for a bank robbery...

Nadia and Willy Fog have an equally high sense of adventure and are great for the kiddies. Nadia is probably a bit more dark, but if you liked one you'd surely enjoy the other.

Allison and Lillia

Allison and Lillia

It is the year 3287, and the countries of Roxche and Soux-Beil have been feuding for one hundred and thirty years. In the country of Roxche, the young air force pilot Allison has just reunited with her childhood friend Wil; and together, they are about to embark on a grand adventure. Whether it's ending the war between the countries with the help of a legendary treasure, traveling into hostile territory, or helping restore a princess's right to the throne, Allison and Wil will complete their missions with kindness and honor.

Nadia is admittedly much more aimed at children than Allison and Lillia, but if you are in the mood for a grand adventure involving enemy forces and artifacts, both of these titles will suffice. In addition, each involves old time airplanes and other elements that will definitely remind you of the other.

In the anime Ashita No Nadja, Nadja, an orphan, joins a traveling street performance act called the Dandelion Troupe because she finds out her mother might be alive. She travels across Europe and finds many friends along the way that teach her things about herself. She also wears a brooch around her neck that a bunch of thieves are after.

In the anime Nadia: Secret Of Blue Water, Nadia, also an orphan, grew up in a circus. She travels across Africa trying to find out where she's from while all the while she is being hunted down for her jewel known as the Blue Water. Nadia also finds out her father might be alive.

You can see the similarities.

Both anime combine traveling to find out things about themselves, romance, and adventure.

So, I am almost positive if you like one, you'll like the other.
