The fantasy world of Arcadia is in peril: fierce monsters known as Thanatos are sucking the life from humans, and only men known as Purifiers can vanquish them. Angelique is a young girl who attends Melrose Girls Academy and thought her life was normal, until the dashing Nyx told her that she has hidden powers within. After a brutal attack by a Thanatos, Angelique finds she is able to help in the battle and heal those who have been sucked dry; her powers are real, and she discovers she is in fact the Queen's Egg - the only female Purifier. With the help of allies such as shoot-em-up Rayne, the happy traveler J.D. and Silver Knight Hyuga, Angelique will learn about her powers and help put a stop to the Thanatos.
Awayuki Himeno is a normal schoolgirl who is in a bind: her father’s remarriage yielded two new cruel stepsisters, and to top it off, she meets seven men who call themselves Liefe Knights. They reveal to her that she's a Pretear, someone who can lend powers to them when their powers aren’t enough to defeat the evil creatures called mayouchuu. Now, she has to fight the ambitious Fenrir, whose only purpose is to leech the life force from all living beings. Can Himeno save the world and find a way to deal with her growing feelings for one of the Liefe Knights?
Both of these anime center around high school girls that discover they hold mysterious powers. I can see similar distinctions between both of them. Both are reverse harem anime and I'm sure if you like one you will like the other.
If you've watched either Angelique or Pretear then I strongly recommend you watching the other one. The two have the same kind characters and ideas that make them both great. Both of the main characters are girls who think that they're not special in any way and can't be of help to anyone - plus they're surrounded by guys that are sworn to protect them and fight alongside them. In Pretear the story is more comical - but in both anime are genres of shoujo, magic, romance and comedy. In both Angelique and Pretear you'll find yourself cheering the main character on as she attempts to fulfill her duty and make sturdy relationships with the characters.
If you enjoyed either Pretear or Neo Angelique Abyss - then the other is a MUST see!
Pretear and Neo Angelique Abyss are remarkably similar to one another. The main heroine in each have magical type powers that they have to use to save their friends and loved ones. Along the way a group of guys is their to help her reach her goal and discover just how far her powers can reach.
Kajika is the fourteen-year-old heiress of the Burnsworth Corporation who just wants to live a normal life, but her father has other plans. He informs Kajika that her fate is a heavy one to carry and he will only tell her the full details when the man she intends to marry is by her side. As such he has set up a ‘marriage game' for her; Kajika will meet three men that he has specifically picked out and she is to select one of the three to become her husband. There's just one catch; Kajika must also make her chosen man fall for her, since the ‘suitors' are unaware of the game in which they are participating. For a girl who has never loved anyone except for her pet leopard, this game will prove to be a trial. With her over-protective childhood friend and personal shadow, Li Ren, keeping a close watch, will Kajika be able to choose who will become her lifelong partner and finally learn of her true fate?
Neo Abyss Angelique and Hanasakeru Seishounen both have the same type of feel to them. The heroines are strong willed characters trying with all of their might to do the right thing. It does not hurt that both of these females also just happening to be surrounded by extremely good looking guys in the process!
In a world not unlike our own, mages are commonplace and schools are separated between normal students and magic users. Yuma Kohinata is a student at one such school, Mizuhosaka Academy. On the way home from buying chocolates with his androgynous friend Jun, Yuma is given chocolates from school idol Haruhi Kamisaka; things become even more complex once the magic wing of the school has a gas explosion, displacing all of the magic students into the normal section – including Haruhi! Now, Yuma finds himself thrust into the world of magic, and must deal with the various women who vie for his affections; can he juggle his priorities and continue to pass his classes?
Happiness! and Neo Angelique Abyss may seem like an odd pair at first, because while they both follow a girl with magical abilities, the tone of the shows is pretty different. Happiness! is a celebration of youth and a reflection of the sweet things that it brings. Neo Angelique Abyss is definitely the more mature of these two series, because it has higher stakes and far more pressure on the heroine. With that in mind, however, the basic story is pretty similar and both shows are quite visually appealing. If you like one show, it's certainly worth watching at least one episode of the other.
Azusa was a normal high school student, until she was sucked down a well into a fantasy world full of monsters, demons, and surprises. Dubbed the priestess of the land of Kyou, she found herself joined by the Hachiyou, a group of people with magical powers, dedicated to protecting the priestess and the land. But all does not bode well for Azusa, as the demon Akuram wishes to claim her power for evil purposes. In addition, a malicious spirit is ravaging the townspeople, stealing their life energy! A day's work is never done for the priestess and her companions, it seems.
Harukanaru and Angelique are both tales of a young girl in a fantasy world inhabited by demons and bishie men. Each is equally as vacuous, in my opinion, but otherwise should appeal to the same audiences.
Both series feature a girl who is a special chosen one who is at first reluctant to take on her new role. Both protagonists are also surrounded by men who are destined to protect her and they have a similar group dynamic in both series. The team has to fight monsters using their powers, and the lead girl has discover her inner power to protect her new friends.
