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.

There, they encounter the young martial artist Tohma, who has been helping two runaway children from a nearby orphanage, Helga and Chitto.

Nadia and the Children are similar, but it is hard to explain without spoilers.

Let's restrict it to the fact that both have elements of Science Fiction that the synopses don't mention ^^;

Hakugei - Legend of the Moby Dick

Hakugei - Legend of the Moby Dick

Now, Ahab, a mysterious android named Dew and the rest of the gang must set out to find and defeat the white whale, before a countless number of lives is lost...

Out of all the recommendations I've done, Nadia and Moby Dick is one of the best pairings. Seriously, you just need to watch one if you liked the other. The same sense of adventure, hijinx and exploration are in both, just in different settings. Even the pacing and filler episode count are quite alike. Definitely, if you liked one, you'd love the other.

Nadia and Power Stone are both adventurous tales with comedic elements and slapstick villains. Both are fairly terrible in some ways, but Power Stone takes the case for awfulness. Regardless, as they're aimed at the same age level and have a very similar feel, fans of one might enjoy the other.

Nadia and Secret of Cerulean Sand, are both family friendly adventures set in the past.

They also both have a set of young main protagonists, that are part of a larger team set up on a mission.

The similar themes do not stop there.   The two shows have amazing machines that stretch the possibility of inventions far beyond thier years, but use materials that would have been readily available.  Wood/Rivets/steam engines.
