Uta Kata

Uta Kata

On the day before summer vacation, Ichika discovered an old mirror in an old school building. From within it, the mysterious Manatsu looked out and offered to trade favors: if Ichika will do her "homework" (experience the power of the spiritual life forces and write about her feelings) then she will return the charm that Ichika has lost. As Ichika struggles to absorb the raw power of nature, those who watch from the other side of the mirror eagerly await her decision at the end of trials. Can a 14 year old take on the sins of the world and mend the rifts between nature and humanity?

The main characters of both Uta Kata and Someday's Dreamers are given the ability to use magic, but question its purpose and the meaning behind it, with the search for this meaning being the central focus of the anime. Also, both shows take a sort of small-scale approach to magic, doing things like fixing glass or finding a missing person rather than huge, flashy effects or explosions. Although Uta Kata gets to be quite a bit darker than Dreamers, and is burdened by excessive ecchi shots early on, overall the two anime give off a similar vibe. If you enjoyed one, consider checking out the other.

While extremely different in terms of artwork (Uta Kata has a strong moe'ish style attached to it, and Someday's Dreamers is definitely a lot tamer, with an almost shoujo'ish style), they're both pretty much the same in terms of what the main character has to go through. They both adopt a very unique approach to the extremely overused mahou-shoujo genre in order to tell 2 surprisingly compelling coming-of-age stories. So if you liked one of them, make sure to watch the other!

Windy Tales

Windy Tales

Nao and Miki are the sole members of their school's photography club, and have discovered the hidden secret of the wind. With the help of Mr. Taiki (a member of the ancient clan of the "wind-handlers" and one of their teachers) the duo soon pick up the secrets of controlling the wind and seeing it in its perfect beauty. With flying cats, lost tree squirrels and photography contests to boot, there's wind to be seen in any situation...

Though these two share a slice of life quality, I think this is a good recommendation because they both have the same pacing as well, with a thin but interesting plot. Try it out for size.

In Windy Tales you have a few young studants who are learning how to control the wind. In Someday's Dreamers you have a few young students who are learning how to use magic. And don't you think there's  something magical about being able to control the wind? :) It's not hard to see where the premise of both shows mesh together, but there are more similarities between both. The slow, "slice-of-life" pace; the instrumental, nostalgic music; the simple and yet down-to-earth characters... it's as if all factors, but the animation, tell you that Windy Tales is a kind of spiritual successor to Someday's Dreamer. Fans of one will certainly like the other.

Aishiteruze Baby

Whenever Kippei is at school, he has one thing on his mind: girls. From skipping class to cheesy lines, he'll do anything it takes to reel the ladies in, though he never seems to find the right person. But the bachelor lifestyle is soon to change when young Yuzuyu enters the picture. This five-year-old cutie has been abandoned by her mother, and is to be taken care of by none other than Kippei! Unfortunately for the both of them, Kippei has no experience raising a child, so the learning curve will be quite steep...

Both animes deal with everyday issues or problems (relating to their respective animes of course!). If you like watching this kind of stuff, then both are good watches

For a series that focuses on magic, Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto (Someday's Dreamers) is surprisingly not too far removed from Boys Be. Both are melancholy series that deal with serious issues, but Someday's Dreamers takes the lens away from boy/girl romance drama and focuses on more general issues.

Bungaku Shoujo ~Hatsukoi~ and Someday's Dreamers are very long titles that host very similar feelings. The overall mood is quite light and serene. Though both anime have themes of fantasy, this theme is not a significant factor to the anime. Instead the story execution is more focused on the everyday life of our female protagonist and how they use these "supernatural" abilities. Again, the fantasy component is just secondary to the slice of life genre. If you liked Somedays Dreamer there is a strong chance that you'll like Bungaku Shoujo ~Hatsukoi~ and vice versa.
