For a much better look at a young man who must rise to greatness against all odds, check out Arion.

Ajna

Another old-school fantasy-themed movie that will let you understand how even back in the days japanese animation had not to envy to mainstream western animated blockbuster.

On the contrary, you will probably find these films less chessy and more filled with contents than any other disneyan work of the same era.

Unico

Unico
  • Movie (1 ep x 90 min)
  • 1981

Unico is a special unicorn with the ability to make anyone he meets happy. But the gods are not pleased, and out of jealousy, they bid the West Wind to exile young Unico to the Hill of Oblivion, where he shall stay, alone, forever. Luckily, the West Wind is a kind soul and instead, hides Unico away from place to place, keeping him shielded from the eyes of the gods. Along the way, Unico must make new friends and even save the world from an evil power!

Unico and Horus are both feel-good stories that seemed better suited at diaper wearing toddlers than adults. With random bursts of singing and a fantasy plot that is generic at heart, each of these might entertain you if you liked the other.

wolfangel87

Unico and The Adventures of Horus: Price of the Sun are both directed at a decidedly younger audience.  These feel-good stories have a particularly mushy feeling to them.

Amon Saga

Amon Saga
  • OVA (1 ep x 74 min)
  • 1986

When Amon was a young boy, his mother was viciously murdered by the masked emperor of the moving city Valhiss. Years later, a stronger Amon has returned to exact revenge and successfully manages to infiltrate the city above ground, only to come face to face with the beautiful kidnapped princess Lichia. Against all odds, Amon must now avenge his mother, destroy the evil emperor, and save the lovely princess all at the same time! The days are never dull in the life of a hero...

Jack and Horus are two children's fantasy/adventure tales with a bit of darkness and plenty of musical numbers, The two are very similar, try them on for size.
