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!

Both Someday's Dreamers and Aria are stories of a young girl trying to find her way in a new profession. The two series follow the protagonist as she makes new friends, pursues her apprenticeship, and learns many valuable life lessons. Both are slow paced shows, containing plenty of charmingly sweet moments amid beautiful scenery shots.

Both of these shows follow a girl moving to a new place to pursue the work she's always dreamed of. The format of the two shows is also similar, spending a lot of time on special moments in the lives of the characters, to the point where the main character is often out of the spotlight. This combined with a gentle overall pace lend Aria and Someday's Dreamers a laid-back, introspective feel that works well as a background for the character development that drives each show.

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.

Voices of a Distant Star

Voices of a Distant Star

But when she enlists in the galactic army, who is desperate for candidates to fight an alien war, she finds herself drifting farther away from her first love, Noboru. In the depths of space, where a simple email takes eight years to be delivered, will their love truly flourish, or simply fade away?

Hoshi no Koe and Someday's Dreamers (Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto) share in common a sense of romantic nostalgia; not necessarily the romance of love, but the romance of high ideals, recalling the optimism and purity of earlier science fiction and placing such concepts in a modern context. The two differ in their approaches to this idea, with Hoshi no Koe as Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet vs. Someday's Dreamers as A Midsummer Night's Dream in terms of tone and context.

The true drama aspect of the two series unites the feel and gives it a similarly pleasant and non-demanding feel. Like Taisetsu na Koto, Kokoro Library is one of the few animes which isn't a plot heavy monster. You can put the series down and come back to it months later and loose none of the goodness the series offers.
