Earl and Fairy

Earl and Fairy

Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.

Both anime are shojo romance with a reverse harem, a Victorian setting and a narcissistic blond romantic interest. Hakushaku to Yōsei is not quite as comedic as Ouran though- more drama.

KiraRin KiraRin says...

Girls - if you like the idea of a group of handsome bishounen sweeping you off your feet, you will be more than spoilt for choice with Ouran and Earl + Fairy. With romantic moments that will have you melting, the denial of the female protagonist only encouraging the beautiful boys even further.

If you like the reverse harem and very sexy guys, I highly recommend both of these to you.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

both Hakushaku to Yousei and Ouran High are reverse harem shows (shoujo romance), both of them are set in a modern, Victorian setting. Also both of them are pretty nice, heartwarming romances, though Ouran High has a way more developed comedy aspect than Hakushaku to Yousei. So if you liked one of this shows be sure to check the other one as well.

With shoujo romance and a little reverse harem Earl and Fairy and Ouran High School Host Club fit hand in hand. The Victorian type setting plays a key role in unveiling the back drop of the characters budding romance, while the heroines of these delightful tales try to give a new type of relationship a try.

Both series have a theme of "low class but cheerful girl" entering rotten world of rich/talented and saving every1 around her without even realizing that.

Nymn Nymn says...

Although this recommendation is more apt towards the manga, which is definitely deeper and explores more content, is can still apply to the anime. Both, at first glance seem to mostly potray a comic and cutesy type shoujo with some sweet moments and romance here and there. It's funny but it's the humour that actually shades off just how deep, dark and complicated some relationships, characters and plots actually are. They both will always remain among my top 5 favourite series.

Gakuen Alice is not only cute, but very creative. Its a bit cliche but I loved watching all episodes and it even made me want to watch more, sadly there is only one season but the manga is completed so give it a read as well ;)

Hetalia: Axis Powers and Ouran High School Host Club are really funny parody anime (Hetalia parodies historical events, while Ouran pokes fun of tropes common in shoujo anime). Each's claim to fame comes from their casts, which are made up almost exclusively of bishounen (so... many... bishounen...). Some of the (bordering on shounen-ai) situations the gaggle of bishounen get into are sure to please any fangirl. Or anyone who enjoyed either.

RisikaFox RisikaFox says...

Ouran High School Host Club and Hetalia: Axis Powers both feature a varied cast of beautiful, intriguing male characters who seem to have nothing better to do most days than fool around. This usually leads to amusing situations and ridiculous banter, although they both have their serious moments as well. Fans of one will probably like the other.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Bishounens... everywhere... and "this close to shounen-ai" situations for humorous purposes. The over-the-top antics in both anime make for some hilarious moments. The characters' interactions are also very similar. While the plots are very different, the plot is usually lost due to the cast's antics.

WolfWithinMe WolfWithinMe says...

Both Oran and Hetalia have light characters and a light story line. They both include an array of beautiful characters that can be extremely random and comical.I would highly recommend both animes.

The main theme of these anime is identical: an ambiguous girl stumbles into a host club, and is believed to be male. After breaking something in the club's room, the girl owes favors to the host club in order to pay back the money she'd have to pay for the damages.

kisuitha kisuitha says...

The main topic in these animes is the same. With the only exception that the guys in the host club of Aoharu are more mature and she has to participate in a tournament instead of entertaining other girls in the club.

Riruri Riruri says...

Both of these anime revovle around female girls who are mistaken as guys. The main female in each also has to pay off their debt they owe to the host club. Aoharu is more of action but both are similar.

Saiunkoku Monogatari

Saiunkoku Monogatari

In an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!

VivisQueen VivisQueen says...

Both anime feel quite similar in approach to romance. Firstly, both concentrate on the tensions between a poor but very intelligent female and her wealthy-yet-seemingly-shallow male interest. Comedy in both is light-hearted, with a combination of slap-stick and irony, and tends to be geared towards the silliness of the wealthy/advantaged. Despite the comic elements, both anime are highly successful in bringing out the deeper personalities and troubles of their characters. Their animation styles are also of similar quality, with bright, soft hues, and gorgeous bishounen males.

faerieponey faerieponey says...

Both of these anime have a unique type of humor. If you're a shounen-ai fan you will really love the sibling love between Hikaru and Kaoru from Ouran as well as The Emperor and Seiran from Saiunkoku Monogatari. Also, the female protagonist in both is like a magnet for handsome men.

Sinisdextera Sinisdextera says...

It's a fairly safe bet to say that almost anyone who enjoyed one of these will probably enjoy the other. While the premises are very different, the two have the same light, comedic feel to them with just a little seriousness thrown in here and there. The main heroines have quite a few similarities - not simply in the fact that they are both strong, intelligent females but also regarding smaller details - and the lead males both have the same sort of childish but romantic charm. Each series is sweet and romantic in its own way and very entertaining, and if you happen to be watching one then I highly reccomend pairing it with the other.
