Both are harem based with one girl and several guys. Also, the main characters both are very lifelike and open to the male counterparts, so consider either series if you like optimistic, energetic shoujos.

soccerdory soccerdory says...

Both series revolve around young ladies who keep a positive attitude no matter the situation. Each girl has her own set of family problems, but with a can do attitude, and a group of boys surrounding them, they survive and even flourish. If you love the energy and romance in one, you will surely love the other. ^^

Both main characters Himeno and Honda have unfortunate fate, but they both have very strong personalities - they always try to go on and try to understand people around them. And that's probably why they are chosen to fulfill difficult tasks. It may seem like very sad series according to my previous sentences, but both of them are also very funny. If you liked one, you would surely like the other.

Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon

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...

Pretear and Sailor Moon are about girls transforming to fight evil. The difference is in Pretear we got one girl surrounded by a few male super heroes together fighting evil while in Sailor Moon we got lots of girls fighting along side one male hero. Magic is used in both when fighting evil, and in both the characters have regular school lives outside of fighting the evil trying to take over the world. If you like the fighting evil and want to watch it repetively than go for Sailor Moon, with the reverse being true for Pretear with a short and sweet story.

Both these shows are about girls that transform and have to fight evil beings. In both of these you understand why the evil person became that way and feel sorry for them. Both these shows have some romance and inner stugules inside the main girls.

If you want an anime that contains magic powers, love, friendship, good vs evil fights Pretear and Sailor Moon (all SM series) are both what you've been looking for. Personally , I simply love SM because it was my very first anime and at first I couldn't find anything that would suit me, but after I saw Pretear I was completely satisfied with it. You can say that Pretear is a shortened version of Sailor Moon, despite the fact that the subject is different. All that matters is the way they treat the subject .

My-Hime

My-Hime

Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?

Both series feature strong female leads with newfound powers that have to save the world. Both females have some trouble deciding whether or not to accept their new powers and must determine how to balance love with trying to save everyone. Both series were very emotional and I'm sure if you liked one, you'll definitely like the other.

lovepink lovepink says...

If you loved Mai-Hime, you'll definitely fall for Pretear (or vice versa) as both stories revolve around troubled heroines who don't understand why they have been granted special powers, and why they should use them to save the world. However, Mai-Hime tends to be more serious while Pretear is more fairy tale-like.

Nomadichu Nomadichu says...

Both these animes are different but i can recommend that anyone who has seen one would love the other, there is more action in My Hime than Pretear, but they are both about girls discovering who they are and what they have to do to protect the people they love, yes they have similarities and differences mainly being the action of the fighting scenes.

Angelic Layer and Pretear have plenty of spirit. Just because you think you can't do something, that doesn't mean that hard work and good friends can't make it happen! Both of our heroines have a good head on their shoulders and use a lot of might and will power to get where they want to be!

soccerdory soccerdory says...

Angelic Layer and Pretear are both very similar in that a young girl protagonist must face the odds and overcome. Each do it a little differently, but they both are always positive and upbeat, never trying to hurt anyone or to let others suffer. They both have a magical element in a sense, and both have a little romance. If you loved one, I have no doubt that you will love the other.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

If you work hard and try your best you can strive and meet your goal.  That is the message that both Angelic Layer and Pretear present to viewers.  Both of the heroines in the series have a certain goal that they want to obtain and friends along boost their confidence and keep them moving to reach that goal.

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.

Trinityx94 Trinityx94 says...

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!

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

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.
