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?

Even though the stories aren't similar, both Princess Tutu and Petite Princess Yucie have an almost fairy tale feel to them. The main characters of both anime are young girls wh, even though they doubt their own abilities, have the power to be strong for their friends. There is a magical theme in both anime. I love them both and hopefully so will you.

Piano

Two cute and sugarsweet romance/drama stories involving music. While Piano focusses mainly one Piano-music (Hey.... what a coincidence), Princess Tutu focusses mainly on dance. Princess Tutu is more humerous though, has super powers and plays in a whole different world. SO if you want to look for a series like Piano, but a bit omre extreme, check out this one.

Pita Ten

Pita Ten

Tragedy struck Kotaro Higuchi as a child in the form of his mother's death in a car accident.

If you love cute with a moral angle then you'll love either one of these too. They both follow the paths of extraordinary girls that save all those around them.

Completely different concepts, and yet, a similar dark and moody feel to them. Victorian type music and interesting characters round out both series, and in general, this is just a recommendation I make on a hunch. If you liked one, I'm really thinking you'd like the other, but don't take my word on it.. try it for yourself!
watch it online now!

Tutu and Saikano are both utterly beautiful tales of love, loss, and sacrifice. If one broght tears to your eyes, then the other one will as well.
