Princess Princess

Princess Princess

It’s never easy being a transfer student, especially when transferring in the middle of the year. Certain schools have their own traditions and ways of doing things – something Kouno Tooru discovers when the student council of the Fujimori high school insists that he dress like a girl! Along with two other boys chosen for their remarkable beauty, Kouno is given the task of brightening up the dull days of an all-boys high school. The rewards offered by the student council are great, but the life of a “Princess” turns out to be more work than Kouno had bargained for...

Revolutionary Girl Utena and Princess Princess are about schools with an odd tradition and cross dressing. In RGU, a girl dresses as a prince and fights in duels. In PP, students at an all boys school are dressed up as girls as part of school events. In both, the students use these opportunities to grow and move on from events in their past. Princess Princess is a little on the lighter side and Revolutionary Girl Utena is more dark and serious.

Reign: The Conqueror

Reign: The Conqueror

It was prophesied that Alexander the Great would first rule the world and then destroy it. Born the prince of Macedonia, his father was determined to have him remain an obedient military pawn whilst his mother wished for him to be a destroyer of worlds. Now, as Alexander moves across Babylonia towards the "Hindu" lands, enemies from both outside and within his camp struggle to stop him before he can conquer the world and bring about the prophecy of its destruction. Can the world be saved, or is fate truly the deciding factor of life and death?

Both Reign and Utena have more than their fair share of sword fights, beautiful people, obtuse conversations, great visuals, and under-appreciated animation styles. If you like action with a bit more meaning and great music, you'll enjoy both.

Melody of Oblivion

Melody of Oblivion

At the end of the 20th century a fierce war raged between the Monsters and the humans. The outcome was devastating for humanity -- as the Monsters had won -- and thus a new era of Monster-ruling began. These Monsters feed on children and can turn any human who sees them into either a puppet or stone -- except for the Melos Warriors who are the only ones able to fight them. Meet Bokka, a young aspiring Melos Warrior whose only goal is quite simple: to save the Melody of Oblivion and vanquish the Monster King, once and for all!

Both series are full of surreallism, symbolic elements, and sexual imagery that merit multiple re-watchings to fully understand. In short, they're both 'really weird'.

Unlike some anime where characters have straightforward backgrounds, both .hack//sign and Revolutionary Girl Utena create exciting puzzles out of their characters and plots that keep viewer engaged. Both utilize complex characters and relationships to drive passionate dramas, despite their completely different scenarios

Earl and Fairy

Earl and Fairy

Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.

Both animes are related to a Romance and Shoujo. Also they have exceptional good looking guy(s)?

As in Revolutionary Girl Utena, Utena is a girl who pretends to be a knight but also a girl? She has a special powerful sword and needs to duel people. There is an end of the world person who is the seeker prince and the princess who carries the sword. It's confusing like .hack//Sign's backgrounds for characters.....

As in Earl and Fairy, Edgar is the prince and carries the sword. Lydia is the key that finds and answers the riddles. Lydia labels Edgar as a villian, but isn't a villian? The multiple evemies are all enemies of each other so forth enimies of your enimies, but they are not allies, they are all enimies.

Both animes contain nice artwork, and the Ultena series tries too hard for the artwork to look different. If you like one, you might like the artwork of the other? They are both good series and are related to tresure; not gold tresure, but tresure as you need a key to get what you want.
