Synopsis:

In the Guardian World, there live magic users and Neutralizers whose goal is to protect the Throne of Yord -- the source of their power. When the Throne is stolen from its place of rest, it’s up to Tiara and her furry familiar Japolo to find it… but things aren’t always as they seem. Beneath the façade of a simple painting lies the true identity of the Throne of Yord, and beneath the pretense of a simple theft lies the real reason it was stolen… a reason that may end up costing Tiara and her friends their very lives!

Magic Knight Rayearth and Shamanic Princess might not be that similar as far as plot, but they both have a remarkably similar feel. Each contains a set of heroines that are trapped in a fantasy world in which they can't escape, and have a great deal of fighting and conversations. It's hard to put my finger on why I think you'd like one if you liked the other... just try it out!
Rar
With a similar dark art style and atmosphere, both Rayearth and Shamanic Princess deal with a mysterious shadow world and its sinister influence on ours. Though the creature companions and characterisations are rather similar, the settings are less so, however if you liked one the other is bound to entertain.
Murasakyoru

This two are maybe not so very much alike. However, Shamanic Princess and Magic Knight Rayearth OVA have sort of the same use of magic and story, fighting shadows and other monsters.

If you did like one of these anime, you will surely like the other too.

There's a similarity between Shamanic Princess and 3x3 Eyes in the alternate magical world, the master/servant main characters, and the various transformations. However the art styles and general feel of the animes is rather different.
Ran

Both 3x3 Eyes and Shamanic Princess have a very similar feeling to them, from the graphical atmosphere to some aspects of the plot. Although the stories are quite different, if you liked one, you'll probably like the other too.

DarkStalkers

DarkStalkers

In the future, the world as we know it is inhabited by humans and Darkstalkers -- beings of the night who descended upon the planet and stole away the light of the sun. Discrimination is at an all time high, fueled by the tendencies of some Darkstalkers to prey upon the humans for their own desires. However, amongst the dark there are those who fight for good, such as the hybrid Donovan and two sisters who are out for revenge. With the coming of the ultimate demon Pyron, the humans and Darkstalkers must band together one last time to save the planet from his wrath...

With the exception of the last two episodes of Shamanic Princess, both Darkstalkers and Shamanic Princess will really, really remind you of each other. Is it the combination of fighting and discussions, with beautiful backdrops? Is it the fantasy feel? Who knows, I just knew from the start that if you liked one of these, you'd like the other.
NoSanninWa
Both of these shows are extremely visual. You'll see a lot cool powers and neat fights. Darkstalkers suffers from a lack of plot, while Shamanic Princess is a bit too pretentious in the plot department so both of these shows will bore you a bit when they get to talking, but you'll wake up in a hurry when things get moving.

Shamanic Princess takes place in a world as richly detailed as the one in Battle Angel Alita and with a similarly confused and inquisitive protagonist. Both of these have really moody soundtracks and are fun to watch.
kilrothi

Both Iria and Shamanic Princess take place in worlds far removed from our own, with their own set of rules, weapons, magic, and monsters. Though it takes a bit of time to get into the world setting, both animes thrive in worlds that are richly populated with interesting characters and charming nuances. Both series are 6-episode OVAs, long enough to have a story, but short enough to tell it quickly and with style. Plus, who doesn't love fighting girls?

The sheer artistic look and feel of these two 90's animated titles will immediately make you think they can easily be compared.

These both are Magical Girl type titles with a twist. Darker richer, and more adult in nature. The two of them are also more complex in story, Utena making for a better cohesive plot. 

Still if you liked one, and wanted another with a similar feel, it might be worth checking out the other title.
