Synopsis:

With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?

In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?

The pricess and the sorcerer tsusuka have really similar personalities, which lend these two animes to having similar plot disposition. The other characters are left to draw these characters out of their self imposed shells, an ofter difficult and always slow process. However, the effort that is obviously put into the evolution of the retiscent character by the supporting characters really makes the devellopment believable and compelling.

InuYasha

InuYasha

Kagome is a normal high school girl who falls into a well, transporting her back in time to the feudal era. Upon her arrival to this world, she mercifully unleashes Inuyasha, a half demon. As if this isn't enough, she also discovers that she is the bearer of the Shikon no Tama, a jewel of great spiritual power, a jewel which has just shattered into a million shards. Now, along with Miroku the priest, Sango the demon hunter, and Shippou the mischievious fox-demon, they must set out to find the Shikon shards and defeat the evils of the demon Naraku.

Princess Mononoke and InuYasha involve a young man with a cursed right hand that is both a powerful weapon and a danger to himself, which threatens to consume him in time. This man must go on a journey, fighting demons and defending villagers along the way, to both find a remedy for their curse and to stop something horrible from occurring. All of this takes place with an undertone of a love story in the background. Any of this sound familiar? Although very different, Princess Monoke's Ashitaka has many things in common with InuYasha's Miroku. If you liked one, you may just want to check out the other.

There was some sort of similar feel in this series. Even though the fantasy world and the mysterious girl is the main point of interest in Princess Mononoke, Mari has it too. There are as well some weird and non existant creatures in both series, which you might enjoy as well. So if you liked the fantasy world and all those weird creatures in Mari, you'll definately enjoy Princess Mononoke. if you have seen Princess Mononoke, however, and are looking for a more realistic series, Mari might suit your tastes. Keep in mind though that Mari is CG animated and dubbbed in Korean where Princess Mononoke is not.

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume is lonely; he has an ability that separates him from others: he can see and interact with spirits. Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...
