Pink-haired, sassy Doremi would love nothing more than to be a witch; and one day, after accidentally ousting a real witch at the House of Magic (and consequently turning the witch into a green blob in the process), Doremi's wish finally came true. Furious, the witch decreed that Doremi become a witch’s apprentice so that she may someday turn her back to normal, and from then on the fun began. Alongside her friends – also witch's apprentices - Hazuki, Aiko, and Onpu, Doremi will help run the newly-dubbed shop "Maho-dou," study hard for her magical exams, and work hard towards becoming a full-fledged witch!
Red Riding Hood Chacha is an aspiring young mage who can't seem to get her spells right, commonly performing blunders like summoning a bouquet of noses instead of roses. But when her famous master and magician Seravi decides to send her to Magic School, things couldn't be better. Along with were-puppy Riiya, love-struck Shiine, Black Riding Hood Yakko-chan and other new friends, Chacha must survive both the evil forces which threaten the land and sadistic (yet still somehow caring) teachers alike!
Akazukin and Doremi are very random comedies related to fantasy worlds and magical doings. Akazukin is more of a parody while Doremi is more of a mahou shoujo tale, but fans of one should enjoy the other.
Ken and Yuuri's parents run a flower shop, but recently times have been hard and the flowers aren't selling. To their aid comes Mary Bell, a mage from the Flower Magic World who helps those in need. Along with Ribbon the dog and Mary Bell's magical helper Tambourine, Ken, Yuuri and Mary Bell use their positivity and magic to help the plants and people of SunnyBell city. From learning to ride a bike to helping a tree grow again, there's always a fun adventure around the corner!
Mary Bell and Ojamajo Doremi are quite similar; the only thing different is the wacky, random humor that is prevalent in Doremi but not Mary Bell. Each is an excessively shoujo title about newfound magical shopkeeps. If you liked one, definitely try out the other.
Fairyland is in peril! The Super Miracle Idols have disappeared, flowers have stopped blooming and the Happiness Tones that come from inside people’s hearts are no longer available to restore balance to the world. The Queen, concerned, sends the three creatures Dai, Sei and Ryoku to the human world in order to find three princesses that can help make people happy and restore the Happiness Tones. Now, Natsuki, Ringo and Layla – once three normal girls – must transform into the idol group Lilpri with the help of their newfound friends and help save Fairyland in the process!
If you liked Ojamajo Doremi or Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri, you'd also like the other, because they have both little girls that can transform to fight for the good for something good. The characters are really like each other and are all very cute.
Kiki is a young witch who has just turned thirteen, and as tradition dictates she must now leave the safety of her home for a year to undergo witch training. One clear night, Kiki takes off with her cat Jiji and her mother's broomstick to start her new life, and finds herself in a town near the ocean - but she's disappointed to find that people aren't nearly as friendly as she'd imagined they'd be. With nowhere to stay and no outstanding magical skills besides flying, Kiki begins to wonder if she's come to the right place; but after returning a pacifier to a customer of a local shop, its owner, Osono, offers her a place to stay. Kiki soon decides that she'll start her own delivery service, and with the help of newfound friends she sets forth on a journey to discover who she is and how to make it on her own.
In both of these shows you have young witches who are struggling with their magic and are trying to perfect it, of course, with the help of their friends! But sometimes their magic gets them in to many different situations that aren't so good. If you want to see what troubles they get into, check them out!
Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
Both of these animes have a magical girl. Both of the girls aren't perfect but they still try their best at everything. But one difference is that Princess Tutu is darker in content than the cheerful Ojamajo Doremi and I feel that Princess Tutu has a more meaningful story.
