Hinamori Amu is a stylish punk rock girl who is liked and feared by her peers, but there's just one problem: she's actually a shy and quiet girl who can't seem to drop her self-fabricated facade! But when Amu finds three eggs in her bed, she had no idea her life would change forever. Out of the eggs pop Ran, Miki and Su, Amu's Guardian Charas; these being represent parts of Amu that she wishes she could be, even allowing Amu to transform into those parts at will! Now, with pressure from the other Guardians (including her crush, Hotori) to join their midst, dark sides of the psyche known as X Eggs to seal, and nefarious forces after a wish-granting egg known as the embryo, Amu's life has officially become more complicated!

Yumeiro Pâtissière

Yumeiro Pâtissière

Fourteen-year-old Amano Ichigo is a would-be pâtissière who acquired her love of sweets from her late grandmother’s desserts. After meeting the talented Henri Lucas at a local sweets festa, Amano convinces her parents to let her attend the culinary Marie Academy so that she can fulfill her dream. However, as she’s only armed with a positive attitude and no real cooking skills, Amano quickly finds herself at the bottom of the class. Luckily, she soon meets Vanilla, a sweets spirit who’s here to help Amano reach her full potential. Alongside good friends such as Rumi and the three gorgeous Princes of Sweets, Amano will bake, mix and sift her way to the top!

The most obvious relationship between the two are the presence of tiny littly chibis. Their roles are little differrent though. In Shugo Chara the chibis are their person's would-be-self. In Yumeiro Patissiere the chibis are spirits who help out their person in cooking. Nevertheless, if you like one, you'll for sure like the other. 


Though the Shugo Chara series has more action, mentions romance often, and has a lot more outfit changes than you can count; and Yumeiro Patissiere focuses on food and combining different cultures, the two are quite similar. You've got the essence of magical fairy like creatures that assist their 'assigned humans' (if you will) in fulfilling their dreams. You've got the wide range of personalities and the humour to match. So in my opinion these two anime are similar yet different.

If you've seen Shugo Chara, Yumeiro Patissiere would be a slightly toned down, minus the huge essence of romance (but you can catch some hints of it at points) and maybe not SO exciting anime - but it has its good points and the animations are quite similar. But you'll love the humourous moments in this French food based anime.

If you're watching Yumeiro Patissiere, I recommend Shugo Chara as it has the same concept of chibi humourous characters that we all love. Shugo Chara is focused more on action and magical, cheesy 'I can guess what happens next' good vs evil, but its quite similar to Shugo Chara.


In Shugo Chara and Yumeiro Patissiere both of the main heroines have little faity type characters that help each person out along the way trying to help them make it to their dreams.  Furthermore, there is an interesting love triangle between the heroine and some of the other supporting characters.  Both shows have a very upbeat positive message to them and are great if you want to get a reality check on basic human morals of good and evil!


Fairies are the main thing that make these 2 a perfect match. Shugo Chara takes on the magical girl aspect of things with the help of transforming with her fairy buddies where Yumeiro Patissiere is about trying to be the best food maker of all and the faries are along to root the main lead on. Check one out if you liked the other.


Yumeiro Patissiere and Shugo Chara is really similar because both of them has a fairies/sprits besides them to help them along the way and during the anime you will notice how Ikuto/Kashino look like they are developing feelings to Amu/Mikan but they either keep it to thems selves or they just don't know that.

p.s I recommend watching BOTH if you do like one of them


Shugo Chara! and Yumeiro Pâtissière have many similarities: they both have young students as their main characters (gearing towards a younger audience), they both deal with the concept of friendship, and they both have little guardians to help them through. They are both light hearted, but also revolve around a main plot line, with plenty of slice of life added in.


obviously, if you've seen the cover of either anime, the biggest similarities, is the chibis that most of the characters have- and over time, the other characters will too. the plots are totally different though. shugo chara is about mahou shojous while yumeiro patissiere is about making sweets -which isn't bad because sweets are awesome- but one of the shugo chara episodes shows amu's cousin wanting to be a patissiere, so i guess there's a similarities. Yumeiro patissiere is about a girl named ichigo who wants to bake sweets - she isn't good at anything else, and her sister natsume woops her but in piano, as you will learn if you watch the first episode- she goes to a school who's major is teaching the students to bake sweets, and learn french, since the school's main campus is in france, and many sweets are made in france, and stuff. ichigo has this amazing -no sarcasm there- ability to just ... know what's in a sweet just with one bite, and can tell what kind of powder is used in it or baking soda or whatever -i'm talking about the brand of ingredients too by the way-  because she's awesome, and inherited it from her grandmother.


Both anime are about main characters who get fairys how help them. in yumeiro pâtissière the fairy's help with cooking and amano get friends because of here fairy. In shugo chara! gets amu her friends to because of her fairy's 1 help with cooking to. I you liked 1 you will like the other


Well, Shugo chara and YumePati both have the chibi fairies :) Tadase kind of looks like Kashino, the female mains are both cheerful. Both are for littler kids, but i still enjoyed them in the moment. Someone else said they were both very cheesy +girly and yeah thats right... YumePati is about cooking, while Shugo Chara is about...dreams? They were both pretty good :)


In both series, Ichigo from Yumeiro, and Amu from Shugo Chara, have little fairy's that help them out. In Yumeiro, Vanilla is Ichigo sweets spirit who helps her to cook better, and in Shugo, Amu's guardian characters help her to become her "would be" self. Both have very similar art and are chibi styled. If you like one, I'm sure you will like the other.


In both anime little fairies helps for the main characters. Both anime are very cute and chibi styeled. If you liked one you should really watch another one <3


Helper fairies, tumultuous school life, magic, friendship, dreams and goals, these two shoujo series are natural recommendations for each other.

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?

I'm very suprised that noone has made this recommendation before, as I found the two shows to be very similar.

CCS for many is the definitive magical-girl anime series. SC is an up-to-date show that has a lot more comedy, and a slightly more adult tone to it. Amu and Sakura are very similar characters, falling in love easily, changing costumes frequently and having cute little sidekicks who constantly seem to be getting into trouble.

If you're looking for a good show after watching CCS, I recommend SC for its spunky turn on a usually mediocre genre.


These two are so alike and so different at the same time! But I would definitely say that their similarities are very prominant.  Firstly, they're both centered around a girl with really good friends, rivals (that help them), guys that make you go AWwwwwwww! and of course, all that magical girl stuff =)

They're also both over 50+ eps (Altho Shugo is longer) with a lot of character development, especially in their secondary characters (*pst the guys!) And unfortunately, with A LOT of eps, you also get fillers.  But I guess the ones in Shugo make more sense than CCS.  However, whereas CCS has a concrete ending, Shugo is still heading towards it's second season. 

Anyways! If you love one, I definitely recommend the other.  I love BOTH Amu and Sakura =) they're both SO different and yet their characters really shine. 


If you liked Shugo Chara, then check out Card Captor Sakura. Both rely on charming characterisation and lots of cute comedy to overcome their repetitive content. However, CCS is more successful at charming and humouring its audience. Moreover, the recycle plot structure does give way to a strong and powerful drama rivalling that of many other shows. If mahou-shoujo is your fare, you can't miss out on the seminal CCS.


I think you people would like this because 1. the outfits in ccs and shugo chara are similar 2. the whole school atmosphere and episode atmosphere's are the same basically. 3. they also go on alot of trips, house visits, shopping, christmas etc. 4. there's some romance in it


Card Captor Sakura is another magical girl anime that I believe would be a good anime to watch if you enjoyed Shugo Chara. I don't know what to say.. It just makes me feel like if you liked one, you'd like the other. :)


Both anime have girls that transform into many MANY different outfits to fight their battles. Weather it's after eggs or after cards, if you liked one check out the other.


Both of these anime deal with young people fighting off evil.  In CCS, the goal is to collect cards, and in Shugo Chara!  they are purifying eggs.  The character relationships are also very similar, with that pre-teen romance.


Both series have female protagonists who suddenly become "magically able". In both series they have to use this power to stop bad things happening in their neighbourhood.

If you liked one, check out the other.


Both anime are about 2 girls who become magical girls. In cardcaptor sakura must sakura colect the clow cards and amu must collect x eggs. The humor is the same and both character change the outfits. they fall in love at older guys ^^ and at guys from the same age.


Both are Mahou Shoujo series with a similar message. To be who you are and love who you love and to dare to speak out for it. With Shugo Chara this message is much more at the forefront of the series than with CSS, but both still have a similar tone.


Both are similar magical girl series involving young girls who realize their power.  They both have various feel-good moments and sadder ones.  The characters are somewhat similar, and they obviously both have characters with similar personalities(once you get to know Amu, that is!) and you've got the eggs in one series and the cards in another.  They follow the same basic concepts.

Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon

Life can be tough when you're a teenager. Enter Tsukino Usagi, an average, if somewhat clumsy, junior high student whose voracious appetite for sweets and capacity for tears are offset by her enthusiasm for life. Her normal existence is suddenly turned upside down when a talking cat named Luna comes into her life. Suddenly, Usagi finds herself with the ability to transform into the superhero known as Sailor Moon. Fighting the occasional monster may be the least of her worries, though...

Both are about a girl who gains magical powers and then use them to help save the world witht he help of a team of their friends who also have powers.


Both are about love, the discovery of true potential, the protection of loved ones and their dreams. Never forget justice and the fight against evil. If you loved Shugo Chara!, You are sure to like Sailor Moon.


Magical girl.. transformation.. saving the people around them.. what else can I say? :)


I remember watching Sailor Moon when I was a kid. The transformatoins, daily monsters, luming threat, talking cats, tinge of romance, constant comedy and search for companions, continously gripped me in - and I loved it. When I watched Shugo Chara, I couldn't help but think that it reminded me of a more modern, slightly less complicated, more loveable and suited for a larger age range version of Sailor Moon. So yeah, I recommend these shows both ways.


The similarities between the two series are really sticking: from transformation, to "posetion" and even hidden evil, they brig a sense of familiarity.

If i were to choose between the two of them, i would pick bouth.


They both have a similar theme. About kids finding stuff to help their way in attacking enemies. But Shugo Chara! is different, a girl finds egg shells and in Sailor Moon, a different girl tries to find crystals.


Sailor Moon and Shugo Chara! are so similar, it is nearly insane: there is the concept of purifying a person's soul (in Shugo Chara! it's eggs, in Sailor Moon it's hearts), it is the constant battle of good versus evil, the magical girl concept, etc. If you liked one, you're guaranteed to love the other.


Both are great magical girl anime, and I would highly recommend both to fans of the genre.  The protaganists are somewhat similar in nature, as are various things that are a staple of most magical girl series with familiars and transformations.  Both stories have certain ammounts of romance involved, though it doesn't serve to completely ruin the story.  Altogether both are good watches.  If you liked one, you'd like the other.


Theres a main girl swept into a weird crazy world.... 

There's bad guys...good guys....bad/good guys...

A little romance :D

The first time I watched Shugo Chara! I immediately thought "Tokyo Mew Mew reccommendation!" The two shows are remarkably similar. The each show, the main characters both consist of average school-kids granted extroadinary abilities to fight some sort of evil. In Tokyo Mew Mew the heroine was programmed in her DNA as a certain animal and gained the ability to banish evil creatures. In Shugo Chara! the heroine prayed for her true character and got her heart's desire in powerful, adorable guardians that make her fight off the darkness in others' hearts. Best of all? Everything is very kawaii!


Tokyo Mew Mew and Shugo Chara! are both light-hearted magical girl anime with bright colors and crisp character designs. Amu and Ichigo receive their powers and befriend people who fight alongside them, but in the end, it's really up to these two girls to triumph over darkness with their purifying attacks. Such is the life of a pink and perky heroine! ;) If you liked one of these shows, you might enjoy the other as well.


i have watched both and thy are very simalar in which the main character in both gain powers to save the world from monsters with the help of their friends


Tokyo Mew Mew and Shugo Chara each have strong female protangonists that are able to transform to help the world and fight for what they believe in.  Both sort of involve love triangles but mostly the series revolve around developing friendships and strength of character.


Both series have female protagonists who suddenly become "magically able". They both have to use their own powers together with friends to save the world/random other people.

If you liked one, check out the other.


First and foremost, they are both long anime in the magical-girl genre. Long transformation sequences, cutesy powers, and pretty costumes abounds. And, of course, there are oodles of eye candy and funny moments.


Both animes are about a girl with magical powers, who transform and have their own special weapons that they use to change something back into it's original form against the villians. The have romance, comedy, and are good animes :)


They carry the same style but self minded in their own way.

I can recommend that if you like the first one, you will definitely like the other.

A Little Snow Fairy Sugar

A Little Snow Fairy Sugar

Saga is an ordinary girl who lives her life by planning everything ahead of time. Unfortunately, having a waffle-loving Snow fairy called Sugar follow her home was not a part of these plans! Together with apprentice fairies Salt and Pepper, Sugar must find the 'twinkles' that will make their magical flowers blossom, thus turning them into fully fledged season fairies. The trouble is, none of them actually knows what a 'twinkle' is! And so, with help from Saga and other friends, the trio begin their search, whilst having fun and perfecting their magic along the way.

Shugo Chara and A Little Snow Fairy Sugar are amazing animes with good art, music, and characters. In both Shugo Chara and A Little Snow Fairy Sugar, the main characters are young girls that are about the same age, and they each have to deal with the antics of small fairy-like creatures. I think that anyone who likes Shugo Chara would like A Little Snow Fairy Sugar because they're both cute and fun shows.


both are alike in the way that they feature little fairy like creatures who appear out of know where into a young girls life not only that but the fairies also share a blatent disregard for the main characters feelings tword the subject.The main differnce is that shugo chara seems to follow more allong the story of the human whil snow fairy sugar focases on the fairies


These two anime are the same but reversed rolls. In Shugo Chara it's mostly about the magical girl searching for eggs with help from her fairy friends where in A Little Snow Fairy Sugar it's all about the fairies searching for a 'twinkle' with the help of their human friend. Check one out if you liked the other.


Both have little fairies following the main character and are enjoyable. In both anime there are nice music, for example in shugo chara's utau singing and ikuto violin. In A little snow fairy sugar, you have saga playing piano and each fairy is able to play at least one type of instrument. In both anime they are searching for a certain item, in shugo chara the embryo that can grant any wishes, and in snow fairy sugar the twinkle that can help the fairies become full fledge. And also, i find amu and saga look alike except they have different coloured hair. 

However in Shugo chara, the fairies are helping the main character to discover her true self. But in Snow fairy sugar, they are weather fairies and they play instruments to control the weather.
