Synopsis:

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?

Scrapped Princess

Scrapped Princess

The god Mauser delivered unto a world of magic a prophecy: if the Scrapped Princess is allowed to live, she will destroy the entire world. But the knight who was to kill her could not end the life of a newborn child, and so she lived. Fifteen years later, her adopted brother and sister have sworn to protect her, and together they travel from town to town, searching for a life she can't have.

Two young girls who are outgoing and enjoy life in general can't seem to make any friends. The stories are very much different but the underlying plot is pretty much there. If you need a self esteem booster these shows will please you well.

Sirius no Densetsu

Sirius no Densetsu
  • Movie (1 ep x 110 min)
  • 1981

Fire Children and the Children of the Water can never be together. Long ago, the God of Water and Goddess of Fire existed together as one entity, until the jealousy of the God of Wind drove a wedge into their relationship. They separated, and it became the law of the earth that their people must never see each other again. Now that the new heirs to the thrones are soon to be crowned, the Prince of the Sea is drawn to the ocean’s surface and meets the beautiful maiden that is the Princess of Fire. A fantastic love is formed between the two, but the flavor is bittersweet when all they can do is hide the fact that they have met. Love is powerful, but is theirs strong enough to withstand the will of the Gods?

The theme of forbidden love with two very different beings in Sirius no Densetsu and Princess Tutu are the common denominator throughout the series.

MaraRuizu

Both are magical girl shows with fairytale themes; Princess Tutu involves a lot of fairytale plots, while Smile Pretty Cure have many characters taken directly from the stories.

While Princess Tutu generally is a bit darker than Smile Pretty Cure (which is a more standard magical girl anime), there is still reason to check out one if you like the other.

So-Ra-No-Wo-To

So-Ra-No-Wo-To

Kanata Sorami, a young Private in the army, arrives in Seize to serve in the Clocktower Fortress and learn the trumpet under the tutelage of Master Sergeant Rio Kazumiya. Though peace hangs uneasily over the world, Kanata finds a relaxing routine of laundry, shopping, and trumpet practice greets her at her new post instead of brutal drilling and discipline. With help from the other members of the all-female 1121st Platoon, Kanata finds her place in the bustling city, bringing joy and humor to the war-weary residents while learning a great deal about the world.

Princess Tutu and So-Ra-No-Wo-To seem like they're going to be cute fluffy shows about cute girl(s). And they are- at first. And then the plot kicks in and hot damn things get unexpectedly dark/twisted, which all culminates in a finale that pits each show's cast (who all end up more complex and nothing like what you would expect from the first episode) against an overwhelming antagonist and seemingly impossible odds, and all of this takes place in some sort of psuedo-European setting.

Spice and Wolf

Spice and Wolf

Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.

Princess Tutu and Spice and Wolf don't have a lot in common, but they both have amazing climate, and their scenery is pretty similar.
