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?

A Little Snow Fairy Sugar

A Little Snow Fairy Sugar

Saga is an ordinary girl who lives her life by planning everything ahead of time. Unfortunately, having a waffle-loving Snow fairy called Sugar follow her home was not a part of these plans! Together with apprentice fairies Salt and Pepper, Sugar must find the 'twinkles' that will make their magical flowers blossom, thus turning them into fully fledged season fairies. The trouble is, none of them actually knows what a 'twinkle' is! And so, with help from Saga and other friends, the trio begin their search, whilst having fun and perfecting their magic along the way.

Cutesy funny... Probably too sweet for many fans, but worth trying once.

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

These two shows are pretty different in terms of genre, but they both feature comedy mixed with drama, and both ask questions about fate and feature characters loaded down by their pasts and a couple that might not be able to be together because of their nature. In the end I think these two shows come to two very different conclusions about the questions they pose, but they're still interesting to compare, so I think fans of one will enjoy the other if they give it a try.

Da Capo

Da Capo

On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?

If you're not wondering why a dressed human-like cat is around in Da Capo you won't be suprised by Neko-Sensei, the cat who teach dance classes in Princess Tutu (and the same on the reverse). Both anime have weird points in normal looking anime (you know, school, relationship...), which makes you frown to undersand but add very funny parts to the story.

Both are magical girl shows with a gotta-catch-em-all plot.

Furthermore, they have about the same blend of cynicism and idealism, where horrible, horrible things may happen – but that doesn't stop the heroes from pulling through in the end, or sillier moments to take place.

Both have protagonists who only get involved in the plot due to a desire to help out.

If you like one you can certainly stand to try out the other.

Fushigi Yuugi and Princess Tutu may not be very very much alike, but they have their similarities.

Both animes are fantasy animes with a bit of (well, for Fushigi Yuugi it's a LOT) romance. Princess Tutu is about a girl who's trying to get the princes' heart back, and Fushigi Yuugi is about a girl trying to save the world. Like I said, they have not very much in common, but I'm sure that, if you liked Fushigi Yuugi, you'll like Princess Tutu. Especially if you like ballet.
