The story of both series is about the same. The main characters are transferred to fantasy world and are involved in the war between nations with their friends on enemy's side. As the story progresses, all characters begin to change and better ungerstand each other. If you liked Shining Teras x Wind, you should definitely check out Fushigi Yugi. Due to its lenght, Fushigi Yugi is much more developed and also more romantic and that is why I think that you will find it more interesting.
Fifty years ago, the Demon Stone and RAVE (two powerful artifacts) are broken and scattered throughout the world. The story follows the journey of Haru Glory; during his travels he meets many new friends and allies, and also enemies known as the Daemon Card. He will have to use the powers given to him by RAVE to defeat the Daemon Card and find the other pieces of RAVE.
Both main characters use various types of swords (protagonist from Shining Tears uses twice as many as Rave Master‘s, giving you a general idea) and go on a journey to save the world with some old and new friends. If you like these kinds of plot clichés and your fantasy adventure anime with many, many, MANY swords in it, start your next journey today.
In a world where Japan's security rests in the hands of super-powered samurai and their masters called "generals", Muneakira Yagyuu, the official swordsmanship tutor to the family of the shogun, arrives at Buou Academy in order to serve as head of the school's dojo. However, while he hopes this will be a routine assignment at an all-girl's school, everything changes when a strange girl falls from the sky with a power of a Master Samurai and no memory...
The two anime use girls as weapons and fantasy elements. Although the fighting is plentiful, the protagonist in Shining Tears x Wind has next to no experience in battle while the samurai lead in Samurai Girls is an expert at fighting alone; however, gradually they learn to battle with girls while becoming closer to them.

Shining Tears X Wind and Star Ocean EX are both based on RPG games. The main characters find themselves transported into another world, and must go on adventures to get rid of monsters that are attacking people, and make the world safe. The male leads are weak at first but they later improve considerably, as well.
