As a small child, Souta lost his mother. He was left only with a fairy tale she had told him, of the world split into two by the will of God, into a world of science and a world of magic. Now, it has become apparent that this tale is at least partly true, and that Souta is the all-important Key of Elde, the linchpin of our world of science. To protect him, the fairy musketeer Akazukin (Red Riding Hood) and her fellow musketeers Shirayukihime (Snow White) and Ibarahime (Sleeping Beauty) must draw him into their own, magical world of Fandavale. Along the way, they must protect him from the wiles of the wicked Cendrillon (Cinderella) and her minions Hansel and Gretel.
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?
Akazukin is a younger and more innocent version of Princess Tutu. So if you want innocence and cuteness go for Akazukin if you want a more grown up feel dive into Princess Tutu. Both revolve around a fantasy land that focuses on fairy tails! You can't go wrong if that's what you are looking for with these two.
Life can be tough when you're a teenager. Enter Tsukino Usagi, an average, if somewhat clumsy, junior high student whose voracious appetite for sweets and capacity for tears are offset by her enthusiasm for life. Her normal existence is suddenly turned upside down when a talking cat named Luna comes into her life. Suddenly, Usagi finds herself with the ability to transform into the superhero known as Sailor Moon. Fighting the occasional monster may be the least of her worries, though...
If you enjoy watching a team of girls with powers fighting to save the world, you may like these shows. Each girl has her own source of power- in Sailor Moon, it's based on the planets and eastern elements, and in Fairy Musketeers, it's based upon European fairy tales, but there's a nice blend of weapons and magic between the two. The musketeers are younger than the senshi, but they remind me of a younger senshi team. Why not give it a chance?
Hinamori Amu is a stylish punk rock girl who is liked and feared by her peers, but there's just one problem: she's actually a shy and quiet girl who can't seem to drop her self-fabricated facade! But when Amu finds three eggs in her bed, she had no idea her life would change forever. Out of the eggs pop Ran, Miki and Su, Amu's Guardian Charas; these being represent parts of Amu that she wishes she could be, even allowing Amu to transform into those parts at will! Now, with pressure from the other Guardians (including her crush, Hotori) to join their midst, dark sides of the psyche known as X Eggs to seal, and nefarious forces after a wish-granting egg known as the embryo, Amu's life has officially become more complicated!
Both of these shows feature young girls who fight against threats to the world. The sources of their powers differ, but both Shugo Chara and Fairy Musketeers approach violence innocently. If you enjoy shows with battles that are opportunities to strengthen teamwork and use flashy powers, you will probably enjoy both of these shows.
