Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

Zero no Tsukaima is like Harry Potter meets Slayers. Any fan of Lina in Slayers should take to Louise. If you were a fan of one you would like the other.

fizrox

Those two anime have really, really similar main character - pretty girl that can use magic - and while she does, it doesn't always end the way she would want... Energetic, childish, jealous, funny, always getting in trouble - that way you can describe both Lina and Louise. If you loved one of these young ladies, you will fall for another in no time!

Rilkar

Both shows take place in a fantasy RPG setting and involve action, comedy, and romance. And in both shows the female leads are tsundere for the male lead. If you like one you should watch the other.

Carried By The Wind: Tsukikage Ran

Carried By The Wind: Tsukikage Ran

Lady Ran is a self-described 'beautiful drifter': a samurai who travels Japan on a whim, always searching for good sake. Together with her good-hearted but somewhat dense sidekick Meow (master of the Iron Cat Fist style), they stumble into situations where they (usually unwillingly) confront bandits, corrupt officials and deceitful cults. But there's one enemy they can never defeat with their amazing sword and martial arts skills: their perpetual poverty!

TheBurningCrow
The adventure feeling of going from town to town trying to swindle people is priceless, and of course very much abundant in both Slayers and Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran. You'll love the humor and the crazy antics used to escape sticky situations.
MaximusThrax
These two series may not seem to have much to do with each other at first. Ran is a historical Meiji Era sword fighting flick in the vein of Kenshin, and Slayers is a comic fantasy series. I'm recommending both because they both have strong, kick-butt female leads: Slayers' violent ultra-powerful mage Lina Inverse and Ran, the ultra-cool sake-swigging woman samurai. Slayers is a little more comic and goofy than Ran, although Ran has plenty of humorous moments and animation because of its comic sidekick character, Chinese martial artist Meow-chan.

Gokudo

Gokudo

Gokudo is an adventurer who lies, cheats, and steals to get exactly what he wants, until he steals a magic sword. After a comedic lesson in humility and the prospect of riches and women, he embarks on a quest to save the world of magic. Travelling with the slime-ball Gokudo are royalty, fantastic creatures, and even gods.

You could say Lina Inverse from The Slayers is Gokudos female half. Both are greedy, mischievous, and end up with adventures and friends they didnt ask for. If you find Gokudo funny and amusing and enjoyed the series, then The Slayers is your next series to watch and vice versa. I loved both of them and had good laughs. Both are definitely in my favorites list.
Svamp

At heart, Gokudo and Slayers are quirky comedy anime taking place in fantasy settings. They are driven by their respective strong and unique main characters, Lina and Gokudo. They're the kind of characters who make fun of others instead of being the butt of the jokes.

Both series do the adventure kind of thing with traveling to different locales as the episodes go by. Plots are wacky, characters are funny. Art styles are of the comedic and cute bent. Slayers is the more serious of the two and lies more to the direction of action and drama.

Saiyuki

Saiyuki

In the mystical world of Shangri-la, demons and humans live side by side, watched over by a parthenon of ancient Chinese gods. But when normally-civilized demons start to go berserk, the gods require the services of Genjou Sanzo - a Buddhist priest with a magical gun, an evil-banishing scripture and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Aided by the ancient monkey god Son Goku, the half-demon Sha Gojyo and the demon exterminator Cho Hakkai, he sets off on a treacherous journey westward, with armies of demons, dark mages and angry gods all standing in his way...

SlinkyABC

Both Saiyuki and Slayers are similar in both atmosphere and execution, yet are quite different in story. Each of the series takes place in a different time than our own, though Slayers is more of fantasy whereas Saiyuki is rather supposed to be ancient, yet the same world. That being said, both series contain a lot of comedy (Slayers having more, however) and have engaging stories that are reminiscent of each other in their own ways. Keep in mind, however, that Saiyuki is deeper and less lighthearted than Slayers is.

If you like the comedy of one of these series, you might like the other; just remember that Saiyuki isn't strictly a comedy as Slayers appears to be. Also, if you like the "team of good vs. powers that be" scenario in one, you'll find much of the same in the other.

games4yosoul

Both Series have magic and sword fights and epic adventures that spawn several seasons. If you like magic and adventure then you will like both Slayers and Saiyuki. Both series also have comedy has their main fall back. I also found that both series get much better in their next seasons.

both series have its accent on humor and are located in a fantasy world. Though where Slayers is more focussed on an actual storyline, Those Who Hunt Elves is rather random and more aimed at the male, mature public. The characters, especially Gourry and Junpei, are quite similar in quite a few cases. the mian difference between the two series is that Slayers actually becomes more serious over time, where Those Who Hunt Elves continues to be lighthearted all series long.
hedgehogblues

Both are good old-styled anime with a lot of slapstick humour and parodies of the fantasy genre / RPGs, but TWHE is more focused on humour and has less of an overarching storyline.
