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!
Tohru Honda is a compassionate girl who is down on her luck. Her mother having recently died, she has been forced to camp out in the woods for shelter. However, things start to turn around once she is invited to live with class hunk Yuki Sohma and his family... but all is not as it seems! Yuki's family is burdened with a dark curse which causes them to turn into the animals of the Chinese zodiac once hugged by a member of the opposite sex... and Honda may be the only one who can help them.
I found these anime to be quite similar character-wise. Also, both of the storylines for these anime display values of being true to oneself and the value of displaying and being open with your feelings.
Amu (Shugo Chara!) and Tohru (Fruits Basket) are both girls who are determined and will never give up, no matter the circumstances. They each meet many different people and go through many different exeriences that will either make you laugh or sympathize with them.
I found Fruits Basket and Shugo Chara to both be in my top 5, top 3 even, animes. The way they roll fantasy (the transformations in both) into a light hearted, everyday way of life is truly loveable. You'll never get bored when watching the fun packed, romantic, comedic entertainment of both of these animes. When watching both of these you'll daydream about wanting to be part of their crazy, loveable worlds. There's so much about these that you'll love. No matter which one you've seen first or even if you haven't seen them yet - they're both a must see. Plus the moral behind both of the stories - about the hard life, school life, discrimination, treachery, home life, dreams, tragedies, romance, good laughs, and being who you want to be - is something that anyone and eveyone can relate to.
Both of the animes are a bit like "male harem" and have to do with the ability to switch personalities and such.
Ever since they met, emotionless Hotaru and ditzy Mikanhave been best friends, and are virtually inseparable-- that is, until Hotaru is invited to attend a strange school far away, a school for those who have special abilities known as "Alice". Unable to be separated from her friend, Mikan soon sets out on a mission to find her. After traveling to a city far away, she finds Hotaru at last, but gets much more than she bargained for. Now, she is lost in a school full of kids with strange powers, unusual animals, and has secured an immediate rivalry with the toughest little punk in town!
Both are about kids (elementary or middle school) having special powers and trying to enjoy their school life despite conspiracy being unfolded in the shadows.
Also both series cover a love triangle including:
- Main heroine being someone who can inspire other ppl
- One of the boys falling for her being kind and shy character
- Second of the rivals being dark and dangerous character, being forced to work for evil organisation against their will
These two shows feature young kids finding out they have supernatural powers and how they adapt to this new knowledge. They both feature a similar sense of humor and 'feel-good' themes along with a little something extra that makes them both better than the typical magical girl fluff. If you liked one, give the other a try.
Both stories are truly inspiring and have similar point in them for example;
* in the story it is mainly about one main girl when something in her life has changed whether it is she has three eggs appear in her bed or she finds out she has an alice (a magical ability)
*they both aren't the smartest girls and start of with there classmates being mislead to there real character.
* the main characters also are both stuck in a love triangle with; a nice cute shy boys who are afraid to show their feelings and handsome mysterious boys who are being forced to work for the people who they are against in order to protect the people they love
If you loved Shugo Chara! then i gurantee you'll love Gakuen Alice. in both anime there is some comedy and not so romantic parts, but still they were good. In both the main characters try to fight off the bad guy and save their who is being controlled by them. Also the main female character likes two guys and can't decide between them. I also recommend the manga if you want to find out the absolute end of the serious.
Awayuki Himeno is a normal schoolgirl who is in a bind: her father’s remarriage yielded two new cruel stepsisters, and to top it off, she meets seven men who call themselves Liefe Knights. They reveal to her that she's a Pretear, someone who can lend powers to them when their powers aren’t enough to defeat the evil creatures called mayouchuu. Now, she has to fight the ambitious Fenrir, whose only purpose is to leech the life force from all living beings. Can Himeno save the world and find a way to deal with her growing feelings for one of the Liefe Knights?
both Shugo Chara and Pretear have magical girl as main tag.Both main characters have weird powers and weird personalities.Even though there are many differences between this two, at what i mentioned above they are very much alike so im sure that if u watched one of this two you will enjoy the other as well
If you liked Pretear i suggest Shugo Chara, and vise-versa. They are both "magical girl" types. They also have many transformations, just Shugo they transform with Guardian Characters. And Pretear transforms with Leafe Knights. Either way they are very good matches for each other. So they are both worth the time to watch and enjoy.
Both series have female protagonists who suddenly become "magically able". They both have to solve magical problems happening in their neighbourhood. Both series are mainly focussed on the interaction between characters.
If you liked one, check out the other.
Both anime are about a girl that doesn't believe in her self. And one day she become important. Both anime have hansome guys who care a lot about the main char. By chugo chara! is it Ikuto who cares about amu and by pretear is it hayate about Himeno.
Both anime have humor in it. Pretaer is a short anime Shugo chara! is longer and has 3 seasons.
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…
Much like the first season of 'Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha', 'Shugo Chara!' offers an unabashed magical girl-adventure with flashy transformations, endearing characters, and a protagonist who fills the hearts of all those around her with love and happiness.
I do want to point out that I find Amu (the protagonist of 'Shugo Chara') a lot more interesting and fun than Nanoha, seeing as she's pretty spunky and not annoyingly polite and perfect all the time.
Both series have female protagonists who suddenly become "magically able".
Nanoha operates on a larger scale then SC, and is faster paced. Still, if you liked one, check out the other.
Both anime are about magical girl's and there enimies become in both anime there best friends. If you liked 1 you will live the other.
One clear festive evening, Lucia, a mermaid princess, rescues a young boy from drowning. With him, she leaves the source of her beautiful singing voice: a pink pearl necklace. Several years later, Lucia has grown into a young woman, and embarks on a quest to the human world to reclaim her pearl and find her lost love.
Though Mermaid Melody is aimed at a much younger audience and has many, many more magical girl transformation sequences, I think it's a good fit with Shugo Chara. Both have a fairly loose and uninteresting plot with plenty of bright colors and characters -- and of course, plentiful amounts of transformations! If you liked the cuteness in one, try out the other.
More of an anime aimed at the younger audience.. but still good. Basically a younger version of Sailor Moon but with mermaids ;)
Both animes are similar because both has an ability that was able to help them make friends Lucia was her voice and being mermaid princess while Amu was cleanse eggs and has a guardian I hope you can enjoy it :)
