Joining Ran is the cocky and beautiful Naha Midori, a fellow telepath who has just transferred to Ran's school.

Telepathy Shoujo Ran and Railgun follow schoolkids with special powers and overall have a similar tone and feel. Try it out!
Both anime have school kids with special powers. In Telepathy Shoujo Ran it is kept a secret from others where in To Aru Kagaku no Railgun they are actually in school to make their powers better. Both have similar love hate characters and just wonder on to episode to episode not really going anywhere. Check one out if you liked the other.
Kinomoto Sakura never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost! For the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards. Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?
There are many similarites that I found in both of these animes.
Both Ran from Telepathy Shoujo Ran and Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura are magical girls. Though Sakura uses magic from cards where Ran uses just her own powers, it's magic nonetheless.
They have a good friend that know the magical secret. Even their older brothers know about it all!
But Ran and Sakura aren't the only ones with magic. They meet a rival who, at first, are at bad terms with them but they soon becomes friends after some events.
If you're a fan of one of these shows, the other will be a good choice to watch.
Natsume is lonely; he has an ability that separates him from others: he can see and interact with spirits. Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...
Both series deal with the same topic - "the hidden world" that co-exists with our world. Common people cannot hear strange voices, cannot see spirits and strange creatures, but the main characters can and are therefore destined to help them and to understand them. The only difference is that Natsume has to deal with them alone with his "cat" while Ran has a precious friend who has the same powers. If you liked one, be sure to check out the other.
