Synopsis:

Sakura Nina, a magic girl from the Magic Kingdom, comes to the human world to continue her training. It would have been a simple scenario, if not for the fact that Nina's magic skills are subpar at best. Nina and her best friend Ayu subsequently find themselves turning normal high school life into crazy adventures, day after day, with a magical twist. But as time goes on, there are questions that must be answered -- why is Nina really in the human world? And why is her childhood friend, a black magic user named Maya, in the human world as well?

Maburaho

Maburaho

Kazuki Shikimori is a 17-year old junior studying at Aoi Academy, an elite school for the magically gifted. However, unlike enrollment to the school would suggest, his magical prowess is below-average. In fact, he can only use magic eight times in his life, or he will die. But not all is lost: Kazuki's family tree includes the latent genetic material for magical greatness. After that information leaks out, Kazuki suddenly becomes the most popular male student in the school, and girls from powerful magician families begin chasing him to get his genes.

Both of these are love stories involving magic. In Ultra Maniac, one person (the main character) has the ability to use magic. It's a cute love story, definitely geared more for a female audience, but I still found it pretty entertaining as a guy. Maburaho is a huge contrast to Ultra Maniac, where pretty much everyone in the anime can use magic (except for the main character, who's kind of a failure with his ability... but he can still use magic a VERY limited amount of times). Maburaho is without a doubt geared for a male audience - one man, multiple women. If you're a guy and you watched Ultra Maniac and didn't like it but want a love story with magic, check out Maburaho. If you're a girl and watched Maburaho and thought it was a perverted anime for guys, you'll be much happier with Ultra Maniac. Personally, I enjoyed both... bow to me, the anime hermaphrodite.

These are both really like each other, they are both with magic and they are both Romance Anime. I think that they are both very funny too. These two are really Good Anime series!

Ultra Maniac and Maburaho are romantic comedies that revolve around magical upbringings and interesting characters.

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto 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?

Both anime are about magic girls and their trouble to do magic without being known by non-magic people. Both imply relationship troubles, friendship and love, and both are really cute in the meaning there's no pain, no blood hardly a few tears (Basically, they're shoj├┤!). But if CCS is better done on the relationships (CLAMP work), Ultra Maniac has a lot of funny moments, and is shorter in episodes number.

Both series revolve around a magical girl who needs to do something under a pressure of time. They both have strong elements of magic, friendship, adventure and a little bit of romance.

Sugar Sugar Rune

Sugar Sugar Rune

Chocola is an extrovert and an assertive girl, while her friend Vanilla is extremely shy and hesitant; together, they both come from the Magical Kingdom and are the next candidates in line for the throne. In order to qualify to be the Queen, Chocola and Vanilla are sent to the Human World to improve their magic; the assessment is based on capturing the most 'hearts' of the people in the Human World. Chocola's upfront behavior was popular in the Magical Kingdom, but in the Human World, people prefer the personality of her newly formed rival, Vanilla. Now, Chocola must work extra hard to live up to her mother's failure -- all while repressing her desire to whup everyone's butt!

both series are about witches sent to the human world to compete against each other. the story is so alike, both chocolate and nina are big goof ups when it come to spells, usually making things worse. enjoyed one? definitely enjoy the other.

Lemondropity

Not only do both shows feature witches in a competition against each other to become part of the Royalty, but both come down to Earth and involve the humans there. If you like one, please watch the other - you won't regret it.

Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

Both of these series is involve in using magic. There is a lot of action in every episode in both anime. There is romance too so if you like one you'd like the other one.

They both have friendship, romance, a little magic and comedy! Both really great. I do like Ultra Maniac better then Zero no Tsukaima though.

Dai Mahou Touge and Ultra Maniac both have a wacky magical girl that is sent to earth with one mission: to become the queen of the magical world.  Ulra Maniac has more character development and plot line than Dai Mahou Touge.
