Rhiannon is the fair and gentle daughter of a village chief. Unfortunately for her, she's also exactly the sort of maiden who is needed as a sacrifice to wake the Demon King Arawn from his thousand-year slumber and is soon kidnapped for this very purpose. However, when Arawn is summoned, he decides to spare Rhiannon's life, instead killing her captor and freeing her from mind control. Taken with his kindness, Rhiannon immediately decides to marry the Demon King, making him the new village chief. All of this is bad news for Rhiannon's protective but hot-headed brother Arthur, who must now pledge his knightly service to his new Lord, Arawn. Together the three of them must journey and together they must fight, encountering new friends and new foes along the way.
A man awakens in an unfamiliar room, with no recollection of who he is or where he came from. His wounds have been bandaged, and his face is covered with a mask that he cannot remove. With nowhere to go, he decides to stay with his rescuers and help them when needed, waiting for his memory to return. Though his courage, skill, and wisdom quickly gain him the villagers’ respect, the same traits soon land him in hot water with the local feudal lord. Not one to back away from injustice, the path he must follow will lead him to confront his enemies, and his hidden past.
In both shows, the main protaganist, through a series of events, have gained leadership of a small village, whether they like it or not. Both protagonists also have an air of mystery surrounding who they are and what they are. The main protaganists are surrounded by a cast of beautiful badass babes. As they forge on ahead in their quest for independence from their tyrannical rulers, they discover who they are, what they must do, and and learn the effects of their actions.
These two anime are both very similar in many ways. First being the technology setting, both take place in an era where swords and bows are used as primary weapons of war. Magic is also commonplace in both anime. The anime are based off Eroge games, so both male protagonists are surrounded by lots of women. Both protagonists are intelligent tactical commanders, who end up becoming head of a tribe (despite their will) and are immediately thrusted into a war. Action is very abundant in both with some comedy thrown in for the lighter moods. Both are made by OLM Incorporated so the visual style of both are a lot alike.
The two series are very similiar with each other. The main theme in both is a medieval setting where the male lead takes charge of a village and tries to see it through the difficult times ahead. They both focus on the larger setting of things, rather than the hero and his merry band, invloving a lot of "political" plots and background. Also the male lead in both series is covered by a mysterious story/origin and is surronded by a handful of women.
Utawarerumono is what Tears to Tiara could have been, if it hadn't fallen into the depths of mediocrity. If you still liked Tears to Tiara, you will love Utawarerumono, since it's executed 10x better.
Both feature a charismatic, and powerful leader, suddenly appearing from nowhere and seizieng power for the sake of people he care about. Both characters lead their tribe to war with much stronger enemy.Both Arawn and Hakuoro past is mysterious, and it's explained in the latter half of the show.
In both shows there are some army struggles, yet the deciding advantage comes from powerful heroes gathered around main character. Also in both shows final enemy has similar mindset and methods.
Both anime are based on a RPG game by Leaf and they have many similar themes: a fantasy medieval setting and a protagonist with a mysterious past who is the leader of his country and is surrounded by many girls and a few guys who accompany him in his adventures and they defend their country from anyone who wants to conquer it.
In both Utawarerumon and Tears to Tiara everything starts in a small village and grows into a full scale war. The protagonists in both shows are very similar in many ways, for example most of the main characters are beautifull girls. The main protagonists are very intelligent and use various cunning tactics to win the upcoming wars. Both animes have everything you need and want in a fantasy tale. You will discover the power of friendship, dedication, honor, and you will embark in a journey of sell explorance.
In both anime, the main plot involves around a huge war that must be fought in order to obtain peace, and there are many deaths on the way. The main (hero) character also has some mysterious/unknown background that isn't explained until later on, and they also both become leaders (unintentionally) of a group which steadily grows into an army over time, both of which happen to be tactical masterminds for no adequately explored reason. Both main hero characters also must gain respect from a stubborn male individual who at first hates them. Also, both anime involve magic, the heavy reliance on physical weapons such as swords, angels, and gods in some form. If you enjoy war based anime involving planned out tactics with a mixture of politics involved, then I am fairly certain that you will also enjoy both of these anime.
Both of these are focused on a bigger picture. They begin focused on a small villiage before the main protaganist arrives. Afterward the focus then widens as the protagonist group gains control over larger and larger establishments and fights against old enemies. Both Hakuo and Arawn are drawn into worlds that they don't quite recognize and somehow gain a following through the female protagonist who is caring for them who has romantic interest in them. Both gain kindoms and "harems" as the shows run their course.
Utawarerumono and Tears to Tiara have similar story lines. For example in both aimes there is a group of people that opposes the current ruler of the kingdom that they live in and selects a leader that can lead them to their goal. Also the main caracters have both a mysterious past that becomes interlaced with the main story. In both series there are diferent races aside from humans (in Utawarerumono there realy isn't any humans but anyway). If you like Utawarerumono I think you'll like the other.
Uta and TtT are both wonderful anime. If you like the adventurous, RPG setting, small clan to form an empire/kingdom sort of feel, then you'll surely love both. While TtT has more of a western setting RPG feel and is fairly action based, Uta is more of an eastern setting RPG feel and seems to focus moreso on character interaction, though it does still contain quite a bit of action. Both have an interesting cast of loveable characters, and follow the basic plot of "Man wanders into clan, and leads them to greatness", as you can see from the other reviews. ;)
I find both anime to be similar in certain character and storyline aspects. The anime are based off Eroge Visual Novels made by Leaf. The protagonist from both anime become the head of a village in which they lead to war against the ones who oppress them, thus the story proceeds as they continue to gain allies and deal with new issues while fighting for their cause.
If you enjoyed the mysteriousness of the protagonist, the personalities of the characters, and/or the progression of the storyline in either one of these anime you will surely enjoy the other!
Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.
Well if you like Tears to Tiara then you are going to love bleach since its one of the best and longest out there. They are both sword users and both have many battles. While in bleach they fight monsters or human looking monsters, Tears to Tiara is full on human on human action, if you count fairies and elves human. They both include great battles and magic.
In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
Swords and monsters both accompany these shows. In each, there is the misconception that people are evil just because of their title: demon king, Claymore. Also, there is a similar story about a young human girl who travels with a stronger character. The setting of both is the middle ages
Both anime are very similar in the general appeal, both are fantasy anime with swordfighting and magic. And both anime are funny at times.
Both anime are well worth a watch and entertaining. Even though both anime are adapted from different sources (Tears to Tiara is an Eroge / Legend of the Legendary Heroes a light novel series) they still seem similar in regards to how the story is told and characters are introduced. If you liked one you should give the other a go!
Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.
Both Tears to Tiara and Earl and Fairy are very similar feeling animes, in that they center around a world that deals with gaelic/celtic lore, particularly fairys. Tears leans towards action, and Earl leads more towards romance, but both are full of action, adventure, romance and comedy. Very similar series.
