Do you like accient times and magic? Then this is the right one for you. Record of Lodoss war and Slayers are quite similar except that Slayers is mor of a commedy than Lodoss war.

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...

Perhaps at first sight you will not find much resemblance between those two, but I believe that what they have in common is main character - her way of thinking, desire to help others and clumsiness as well. She is no good without her friends. Both series share similar atmosphere and you will find many magical creatures and fighting in them.

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

Both shows are in the shounen action genre with comedy sprikled in. And in both shows the main character is female because their creators wanted to be different. If you like one you should watch the other.

Star Ocean EX

Star Ocean EX

Claude Kenni just wanted to shine free of his military father's shadow, a desire that made him take unnecessary risks. One of those risks whisked him off to an unknown planet full of monsters and magic. There, he met Rena Lanford, an energetic girl with mysterious abilites who believes he is a hero of legend. Soon, they're off on an expedition to find the cause of the monsters and the truth behind the sorcery globe all while hiding the technology he brought with him. Looks like Claude's got bigger shoes to fill than his father's!

Swords and magic are two typical themes that are found in Slayers and Star Ocean EX. To stop the threat against the world that was created by monsters, these heroes set out on an adventure. Slayers fills the anime with comedy and Star Ocean EX with romance, but you should enjoy both if you liked the action.

The Twelve Kingdoms

The Twelve Kingdoms

Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.

Scythia

The slayers is a lot more comical than twelve kingdoms but both anime feature strong female role models in a fantasy setting.

This is often refreshing if you are tired of the 'timid' girl stereotype.
