Eighteen years ago, the Platinum Tiara, which gives its wearer magical powers, was reassembled. At the same time, five "Princesses" were born, to the worlds of Earth, Heaven, Celestrial, Fairy, and Hell. These five princesses quit maturing at the age of 10, and are all competing to become THE Platinum Princess so they can grow up. This story is centered on Yuuchi, from the kingdom of Earth.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
Both deal with a fantasy realm and include things such as humans, elves and other fantast beings co-existing. Each anime has its plot twists and are both similar in their sense of genre. If you enjoyed one, you are sure to enjoy the other.
If you liked the European-esque Medival type stuff with dragons and magic with romace these two animes are for you. They have different stories and characters in a lot of ways but still are very similar.
When Sara Crewe's father left to work in India, she was sent to a boarding school. With her affluent background and beautiful dresses, Sara was ensured a warm welcome to her new home; but this reputation gained her enemies. Tragedy then struck when her father passed away, and her family was forced into bankruptcy, leaving Sara at the cruel hands of the school’s headmistress. Now, life for Sara is as hard as it can get, as she has been forced to become a maid in exchange for her poor room and board. With her friends and imagination at her side, Sara will try to make the best out of her bad situation.
Children with rivals; attempting to achieve their dreams; rehabbing for hard circumstances.
Both are about kind-hearted and responsible relationships, and contemptible kids persuading to spoil the relationships, so that they could have it their way.
Misaki Suzuhara is a young girl who traveled to Tokyo to live with a relative, but ended up becoming involved in the greatest game of all time: Angelic Layer! In this fast-paced competition, players customize dolls and fight them in arenas of all sizes, hoping to gain experience and perhaps win the greatest tournament of them all! With new friends to meet and new enemies to defeat, the best time of Misaki's life seems to be just beginning. Join Misaki as she struggles to be the best, even in the face of overwhelming odds...
They may not seem similar at first glance, but Petite Princess Yucie and Angelic Layer are close cousins where it counts - focus and tone.
Both focus on determined young girls (the girls in Yucie might as well be twelve) chasing a dream, both focus on friendship and teamwork, and both are ultimately about growing up and family (fathers and daughters for Yucie, mothers and daughters for Angelic Layer). They also both feature romances that are not central to the overall story without feeling tacked-on in the process.Mostly, though, both leave you with a similar feeling when you're done: a feeling of warm and fuzzy triumph.
Three shrine maids have a distant cousin who moved away for schooling when they were young. Years later, he returns, and the three girls are tasked with protecting him. During this, the eldest (who's a teacher at the school) and the middle one form a "Miko" council. The story goes through their growth together and their battles with the servants of the Evil God.
In a magical part of the galaxy, the prince of the Tambourine star world has been betrothed to marry one of two princesses; but Comet, the princess of the Harmonica star world, couldn't care less. Thus, much to her dismay, when the prince flees to Earth to escape his fate, Comet is sent to find him and return. Now, with the power of the stars and a magical locket, Comet sets out on an adventure to find the prince, have fun, and experience the life of an earthling first hand!
Both main characters are "troublesome" girls who are meant for greatness. While Yucie is in a competition to become Platinum Princess and falls in love with the Prince, Comet-chan must find the Prince she may marry while not particualarly caring (at first anyway).
