Both are thrilling adventure films that play upon mythologic sources. But beyond that, both films are centered upon a complex relationship between hero and heroine that is frequently tested.

Puss in Boots

Puss in Boots
  • Movie (1 ep x 80 min)
  • 1969

When the loveable Perro was banished from the kingdom of cats (for the treacherous crime of saving a mouse!), his wanderings led him to the house of Pierre, a young lad who was mistreated by his greedy brothers. Thrown out in the cold, the duo then traveled to a great kingdom where they laid eyes on the princess Rosa, who soon would be wed to a wealthy suitor. Who best to marry her but ... the son of a poor farmer?! With Perro's help, Pierre might just stand a chance -- that is, if he can fool the royal family and defeat the evil Lucifer, who wants Rosa all for himself!

If you are looking for another anime to show your kids that is full of songs and fantasy, try this out. Both Horus and Puss in Boots are tales of fantasy and mystical things, of evil and those who would destroy them. A very similar feel and mood accompany both, as well. If you or your child liked one, I think you'd like the other.

Ulysses 31

Ulysses 31

It is the 31st century, and mankind has taken to exploring the stars. Ulysses, captain of the spaceship Odysseus, takes his son Telemachus on a space journey for his 12th birthday. When the children onboard the ship are kidnapped by an alien race to be sacrificed to a giant Cyclops, Ulysses rescues his son and in turn angers the Gods. His interference is punished severely – his entire crew are left frozen in stasis, and his ship’s computer, Shirka, has her memory erased so she can no longer plan a route back to Earth. Cast into the depths of space, Zeus commands Ulysses to find the realm of Hades before being allowed to journey back home. Along the way, the scant crew meet travellers who have felt the wrath of the Gods, and others who have been commanded to impede or even kill those onboard the Odysseus. Will Ulysses ever make it home, or do the Gods have a much more twisted plan in mind for the space explorer?

Another old-school epic adventure inspired by western folklore in soy sauce by a great author.

If you liked this show, try this other and you won't regret it.

Ys

Ys

Young Adol travels because of a feeling, a feeling of great importance that tells him to find Esteria for an unknown purpose. Now, with danger around every corner and demons at every turn, Adol must search for the six books of the lost empire Ys in an effort to save Esteria from evil forces, as well as to save the world itself!

Ancient Book of Ys is definitely better than Horus, doesn't have all the singing and a bit more unique plot. If you liked Horus, you'd probably enjoy Ancient Book of Ys as well.
