The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country. As a result, Sakura's memories are scattered to different dimensions, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...
Masaharu Tsuwabaki ('Haru') had been living a more or less normal school life until, one day, he accidentally drinks a potion that transforms him into a tiny doll-like lamb at night. To lift this curse and return to normal, he must work with his "chosen girl" Sumomo Akihime, a very shy girl in his class. She is given powers by a magical ring, and together they must hunt down mystical artifacts called stardrops in order to return him to normal. At the same time, Tsuwabaki must keep his daytime identity a secret from Sumumo as well as keep their ability to use magic hidden. As he lives this double life, he grows closer and closer to Sumomo in both his human and sheep forms.
All though the series differ greatly in length, both series are about some sort of magic. In tsubasa chronicles gathering feathers is the main focus while in nanatsuiro drops the focus lays on collecting stardrops. Another similairity is the romance aspect of both series, and what for an effect memories can have on a relationship.
Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
If you like Tsubasa Chronicle then you'll defently like Ouran High School Host Club, both have a way of making you laugh out loud and you'll aww over the main characters. Story lines may differ but the meanings behind both anime remain the same. They both have a way of making you laugh and smile and maybe even cry, heart telling romances, and characters from two different life styles fall in love.
Awayuki Himeno is a normal schoolgirl who is in a bind: her father’s remarriage yielded two new cruel stepsisters, and to top it off, she meets seven men who call themselves Liefe Knights. They reveal to her that she's a Pretear, someone who can lend powers to them when their powers aren’t enough to defeat the evil creatures called mayouchuu. Now, she has to fight the ambitious Fenrir, whose only purpose is to leech the life force from all living beings. Can Himeno save the world and find a way to deal with her growing feelings for one of the Liefe Knights?
Pretear and Tsubasa are both great animes, involing romance, action and fighting for the common good, although in Tsubasa they are fighting to gain feathers for sakura and in Pretear they are fighting to save the world of the people they love, both these animes are about people working together to gain the same goal, and even though they have their differences they get there in the end!
Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
What these series have in common is a quest for lost memories to save true love. Both are packed with action and adventure, but leave you with that warm feeling inside.
The soundtracks to these series are also one of my favourite things about these shows. Tutu has music fitting to a series about ballet. Tsubasa is very reminiscent of the .hack series with sweeping melodies from Kajiura Yuki.
Do not let the themes of these shows put you off, as they almost did with me (ballet and cardcaptors..?). The characters are lovable, the story engrossing, and you will leave with a warm fuzzy feeling ^^
Samurai Champloo is all about style, from the dj-style scratching scene changes to the hip-hop-inspired soundtrack to the eclectic character design. Mugen's fighting style is a funky meld of capoeira and limb-cutting, and Jin is the dramatic foil; he is all steel and old-school samurai style. What binds them together is the desire to test each other's abilities, and a promise to a girl named Fuu: to find the samurai that smells of sunflowers, who plays a pivotal role in her past. Together they travel through edo-era Japan, finding battle and comedy wherever they stop.
Both of these animes are about a group of three strangers that meet in the most random fashion possible. They then set out to accomplish the quest of one of there group member. As time pass the groups become friends with there own and unic relations.
Both have there very unic style and humor, but both are bassed on the characters within the group.
