Synopsis:

In a modern world, magic has become a service industry. From transforming a house, to arranging an article in the newspaper, no job is too big or too small for a mage, who are thought of highly in the public eye. Kikuchi Yume, daughter of a famous mage, has finally reached the age of apprenticeship, and must move to Tokyo to find a mentor. Under the tutelage of the esteemed mage (and nightclub owner) Oyamada Masami, she will learn what it means to be able to bring magic to others' lives.

Chance Pop Session

Chance Pop Session

In Japan, one of the greatest idol singers of the time is the beautiful and talented Reika. Her three greatest followers are a varied bunch: religious Akari who loves to sing at her church, independent and self-sufficient Yuki, and the rich and snobby Nozomi. By chance, or possibly fate, the three finally meet at one of Reika's concerts, not knowing of the path they will soon be traveling together. With friendships and hardships in the future, can the girls manage to succeed on the path they will choose?

There is a similar feel to both series. While implying alot of action, both series tend to be quite tame and mainly focusse don personal problems instead of the magic in Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto or the music in Chance Pop Session. Both have a slightly similar humor and distinguised art.

I find that the main characters are the same; they're rather timid and naïve, and have special abilities. Both Code-E and Someday's Dreamer feature supernatural abilities, but don't have the intense action/drama that they usually bring. Instead, they have more of a slice-of-life feel, and are about how the characters cope with these paranormal abilities.

Figure 17

Figure 17

While transporting bio-weapon lifeforms, Agent DD, member of an alien police force, is forced to crash land on Earth. Amidst the chaos of the crash, a bio-weapon escapes and DD is forced to fight it, while accidentally activating a Liberus, a liquid battle suit. Tsubasa, a shy girl, unwillingly comes into contact with the Liberius and is thereafter forced to fight for the survival of Earth.

Figure 17 and Someday's Dreamers are somewhat underrated titles that deserve attention. Slow paced and with a strong focus on slice of life, these anime use sci-fi and supernatural elements respectively with the main goal of establishing character development. The main character in both is a young girl who must handle special powers in order to grow up and come to terms with self doubt. SD is overall more laid back while Figure 17 becomes quite dramatic but they invoke the same overall feeling and fans of one are likely to enjoy the other.

Undoubtably, these shows belong to entirely different genres, one being a slice-of-life series, and the other a victorian gothic suspense drama, however they share a common thread in the form of emotions. now, many shows have emotions, but what sets these two apart is having a very mature air to them, both revolving around young-adult characters. If you liked the way Someday's Dreamers explored mature emotions, and don't mind tackling something on the dark side of the spectrum, it'd be worth it to give Gankutsuou a try.

Happiness!

Happiness!

In a world not unlike our own, mages are commonplace and schools are separated between normal students and magic users. Yuma Kohinata is a student at one such school, Mizuhosaka Academy. On the way home from buying chocolates with his androgynous friend Jun, Yuma is given chocolates from school idol Haruhi Kamisaka; things become even more complex once the magic wing of the school has a gas explosion, displacing all of the magic students into the normal section – including Haruhi! Now, Yuma finds himself thrust into the world of magic, and must deal with the various women who vie for his affections; can he juggle his priorities and continue to pass his classes?

Both are melancholy stories of modern, everyday magic. The main difference between the two is that Happiness is more of a high school romance with a bit of a plot arc to it, while Someday's Dreamers is a bit more of a character study and seems to deal more with the day-to-day of post-school life.
