The god Mauser delivered unto a world of magic a prophecy: if the Scrapped Princess is allowed to live, she will destroy the entire world. But the knight who was to kill her could not end the life of a newborn child, and so she lived. Fifteen years later, her adopted brother and sister have sworn to protect her, and together they travel from town to town, searching for a life she can't have.
Spice and Wolf and Scrapped Princess both take place in a medieval fantasy setting, both have a character with a secret identity that would cause panic if discovered, and both include humorous interactions within the travelling groups. If you enjoy the mix between humor and drama in one series, you'll probably enjoy the other.
Rokuro Okajima is a small-time salaryman who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.
While at first this ight seem like a bit of a outlandish reccomendation, I don't think it really is. In Black Lagoon I don't feel that the action is the important part but rather the characters and their interactions. This is also the reason why I enjoyed Spice and Wolf as much as I did.
Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?
If you like Spice and Wolf or Hunter X Hunter you'll like the other because one of the things that makes Hunter X Hunter fun to watch is that it's actually educational (like when they explain how bee allergys work.) And Spice and Wolf is also educational but it is limited to economics.
On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius's fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more - thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy - he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person's body. However, there's a catch - in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain's power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice - a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization - a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it. Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice's lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there's a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.
I’m aware this may be an odd recommendation, but just hear me out. Though these shows have little to nothing in common plot-wise, plot isn’t the only thing that can make two shows similar. In this case, the two lead characters in both shows are what I am basing this recommendation on. Horo (S&W) and Alice (Pandora Hearts) are two female leads with playful personalities and seemingly bottomless appetites. Their relationships with the male lead in their respective shows are also reminiscent of each other. Also the way they use their particular strengths to protect the other and vice versa along with their loyalty to each other. If you liked the dynamic between the two leads in one of these shows- give the other show a try.
