With the Alice Game now accelerating with Barasuishou's apperance, will Shinku and friends be able to continue living their easygoing lives with Jun?
Uzume Uno was on her way to class one day when a stranger dropped a mysterious device into her bag - and it’s no ordinary device! The middle school student soon discovers that she can use the cards within the device to summon five gorgeous dolls to fight for her in card battles with others! What adventures await this would-be card master and her new, loyal dolls?
Both series feature dolls who come to life in order to battle alongside their masters.Rozen Maiden is the more serious of the two shows, with Fantasista Doll being lighter, and closer to your average mahou shoujo anime.
In the year 20XX, insects have developed immunity to every kind of insect spray. To counter the incredible rise in insect numbers the Japanese government developed tiny extermination robots code named "Hoihoi-san". The popularity of Hoihoi-san units rises not only as a night time extermination unit, but for doll collectors as well! However, when a rival company introduces its own tiny extermination robots a new form of corporate sabotage begins, as they target not only the insects, but all Hoihoi-san units themselves!
Despie one being a full series, and the other being a ten minute short, i was instantly reminded of Rozen Maiden when i put on HoiHoi-san.
It's mainly the cute dolls that come to life and fight each other, with both having somewhat of a dark tone and plenty of action. So if you liked one for the cute dolls fighting things aspect, then the other might be something you should at least check out.
Hiro Hiyorimi is a boy who moved to the city to live with his sister; but as he was walking around town one day, he sacrificed himself to protect a girl from being hit by falling beams, and subsequently lost his life. Her name is Hime, and she is a princess who has the power to revive the dead with the flames of life. In return for reviving Hiro, he must work as a servant to protect her from any harm that comes her way. Yet even though Hiro now has a partially immortal life, his flames of life must be recharged daily or he will die yet again. Hime’s life is targeted by her siblings because the throne of the royalty is at stake, so Hiro must step up as a faithful servant to protect her life at all cost!
Both RM and KO are about a mature, classy, tea-loving heroine who enlists the aid of a young boy to help her in a battle with her siblings, in order to determine who will be the ultimate inheritor of the family power. Both are battle-based and are mixed with a slight dose of comedy. Anyone who loves the characters in one will surely like the other.
Nanoha used to be a normal grade school student until one day she found a ferret in the woods -- but he's no ordinary ferret! His name is Yuuno, he hails from another world, and he needs Nanoha’s help to complete his mission: to capture the Jewel Seeds (mysterious stones that imbue their wielder with great power) that fell to Earth. Along with Yuuno, Nanoha must now collect the Seeds and protect her world, but she isn’t alone. A rival is also trying to collect the Seeds for an unknown purpose, and only Nanoha has the power to stop her…
It's actually sort of difficult to explain why you would like both shows, but the fan bases for these two overlap quite heavily. Both the Nanoha and Rozen Maiden franchises definitely fall within the "magical girl" genre, but in many ways innovate past the genre's conventions and provide a similarly entertaining experience despite a lack of directly shared traits.
Eighteen years ago, the Platinum Tiara, which gives its wearer magical powers, was reassembled. At the same time, five "Princesses" were born, to the worlds of Earth, Heaven, Celestrial, Fairy, and Hell. These five princesses quit maturing at the age of 10, and are all competing to become THE Platinum Princess so they can grow up. This story is centered on Yuuchi, from the kingdom of Earth.
Both fantasy series are strikingly similar in that a group of female characters, regardless if they're dolls or children, are adamant in obtaining the same goal. The princess candidates wish to become the "Platinum Princess," and the rozen maidens wish to become "Alice." It is like an elimination game where the winner, the only one left standing, receives the most supreme reward of all.
