Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile

The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.

While on the surface S&W appears nothing like Nodame Cantabile, both series deal with the tension between pursuing your dreams and being with people you care for.

Nodame Cantabile also shares S&W's laid back tone, adult sensibilities, and beautiful imagery. In the end, if you liked one story about a driven man falling in love with a quirky woman you'll probably like the other.

Yugo the Negotiator

Yugo the Negotiator

Beppu Yugo is one of the world's most successful and celebrated negotiators. His cases have ranged from big to small, from secretive to in the public eye. His work doesn't come cheap, but his skills are the top of the line, and through words, not violence, his failure rate is minimal. After a period of inactivity, Yugo is back on the job, to help negotiate the release of a hostage in Pakistan. With harsh terrain and deadly enemies before him, will he survive long enough to save the hostage, and return with his life?

Yes, this is an odd one. Though clearly different in many ways, Yugo and Spicy Wolf do share a common thread of having a unique style of conflict. In S&W it's economics and trading, for Yugo it's (no surprise) political negotiating. So if you found one of these refreshing in that sense and seek another example, here you go.

Inukami!

Inukami!

The Kawahira family specializes in dealing with troublesome spirits with the help of inukami, strong dog spirits that take human form. Members of the family are expected to make pacts with strong inukami in order to fulfill their duties, but their family has a black sheep: the perverted Keita, who charges people for his help. His inukami, Youko, is dedicated to make Keita completely hers. Her favorite form of punishment for him when he strays is teleporting him into the city completely naked. He's been arrested for indecent exposure so many times that he's a jailhouse regular, and is considered an outcast by his family and normal society; yet an inukami of the highest caliber chose to be his partner?! Is there really more to him than perverseness?

If you look at the character builds for some of the characters they seem to be quite simular. For one the main femal character in both series have a harsh attitude. They always tease the main character, and always seem to help them out of hard places. Though both series have completely diferent concepts and genres. But if you like the way the characters are, more then likely you'll like the other series.

Kanokon

Kanokon

The timid, virginal Kouta is a new student at Kunpo High School; and while others in his situation might be a wallflower forever, Kouta has no such luck – he has attracted the attention of the busty Chizuru, who happens to be a fox deity! However, Kouta’s misfortunes don’t stop there; he’s also pursued by Nozomu, a wolf deity. Between being molested, propositioned, having his face shoved between mammoth breasts or witnessing endless panty shots, Kouta must also attempt to maintain his studies – even though all Chizuru and Nozomu want is to be the one to deflower him first!

In both of these shows u have an animal girl as the main charter. In Spice and Wolf, Horo is a 600 year old wolf that looks 15 years old. While in Kanokon, Chizuru is a 400 year old blond fox spirit that appears to look human. The shows have  differnt settings,  S&W seting is a traveling mechant who meets  Horo, a rowdy girl who loves to drink with a stong personality. Kanokon seting is Chizuru who finds a boy she realy likes at the highschool and she always puts him in sexuwal situations that are always uncomfortable for him. Both of these  shows are good for unquieness of main charters and how there lives changes when they are with each other and the challengs they go though together. So give these shows a try u might just like them.

Spice and Wolf and El Cazador de la Bruja both deal with a somewhat normal person traveling with a supernatural being.  Though the feelings between Horo and Lawrence in Spice and Wolf may be different than those between Nadie and Ellis in El Cazador de la Bruja, it is the bond of traveling that brings them together, and I had similar feelings when watching both shows.
