Synopsis:

Touma Kamijo's right hand has the ability to nullify any form of supernatural power, whether it be magical, psychic, or divine; he lives in a city populated by students with these powers. Yet unfortunately for Touma, his arm also seems to nullify good luck. Despite his bad luck, the boy tries to stay out of trouble and just live out his life, trying to be the "good guy" whenever he can; but trouble enters his life one day when he finds a young girl hanging on his balcony. She turns out to be a nun of the Church of England, bearing the Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum - a collection of 103,000 forbidden texts, and as a result has a number of people after her. How far will Touma go to protect his new companion from her pursuers?

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!

To Aru Majutsu no Index and Fairy Tail take place in worlds where magic and "superpowers" are fairly common amongst the populace, and elemental battles between people are frequent. Like the exciting energy given off by one of these shows? Be sure to check out the other

K-On!

K-On!

It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!

If you liked one you'll like the other because both animes have that one character thats too cute but also a klutz (Yui Hirasawa and Index) but unlike K-on! Index has a male hero (Toma) who gets involved in things he would expect to be just like Yui does but the difference lies in that Index takes place ion a world with magic while K-on! is in the ordinary magic-free world.

Kore wa Zombie desu ka?

Kore wa Zombie desu ka?

Ayumu was murdered by a serial killer – at least, he was. For after the mysterious Eucliwood Hellscythe revives him, he changes from a human to a zombie, much to his dismay. Now, in addition to being unable to die, the boy must see to the whims of his supernatural, silent companion – but things continue to get worse from there. As once Ayumu accidentally steals a magical girl named Haruna's powers, he is tasked with the embarrassing, obnoxious task of being a magical girl – err, boy – in her stead! Then with the addition of a hostile vampire ninja to his household, can Ayumu manage to maintain his new home life, fight against attacking monsters, and track down the person who killed him all while attempting to keep what little dignity he has left in tact?

Both anime have a pooor unfortunate hero (Ayumu and Toma) whose lives are turned upside down after meeting a strange girl with white hair. Bothe have elements of magic and humor that can keep you entertained for hours. I highly recommend that if you;ve watched one you shoulkd give the other a try

Both series revolve around a guy that thinks hes weak, but posesses a strange power that he uses to protect the people around him. Both lead characters also suffer from memory loss or descruction. The plot of Lunar Legend is a bit more serious and dark, but overall, if you liked one then you are likely to enjoy the other show also.

Mushi-uta

Mushi-uta
  • TV (12 eps x 24 min)
  • 2007

In a nightmarish Earth, bugs (mushi) have begun to infect humans. Though not hurting their hosts initially, eventually the mushi devour the hosts' dreams, killing them in the process. Humans that are "lucky" enough to have their mushi killed ahead of time become emotionless and thoughtless zombies. In this uncertain time the Mushibune, infected humans who resist their persecution, are up against the Special Environment Preservation Agency, an organization hell-bent on destroying the mushi. Kakkou, SEPA's top agent, has been sent undercover to track down a high school student; but he didn't realize he'd meet and fall for the lovely Shiika instead...
