Synopsis:

When Marin and Urin – two sisters who live in the sea – find a ring that dropped into the water from the land of Sky, they decided to travel above to return it. There, amidst a bustling festival, they meet the ring’s owner; her name is Kanon, and she wants nothing to do with the ring, which was a present by her ex-boyfriend. After Kanon refuses to accept the ring and throws it away once more, the girls continue to search for it, accidentally releasing half of a great evil whose spirit was sealed both above and below the water.  But luckily, there’s hope – Matsumoto, the Elder Turtle from the sea, appears and reveals that Marin is none other than the Priestess of the Sea, charged with defeating the villain. Marin must now fight alongside Kanon - who discovers she’s the Priestess of the Sky - to put a stop to this ancient power and its possessed minions before it’s too late…

Kannazuki no Miko

Kannazuki no Miko

Gentle Himeko and reserved Chikane were born into very different backgrounds, but still became the best of friends. Their fates, they would soon come to discover, are intertwined in a fashion that they can't possibly imagine -- they are the reincarnations of two priestesses who once sealed the god of darkness Orochi in their past lives. Set to revive again, his giant robot-riding agents have set out to destroy the girls, one of whom is Himeko's friend who is in love with her. Riddled with memories of their past lives, the two try to survive long enough to cast the seal on Orochi again...

The basic premise of Kannazuki no Miko and Umi Monogatari is remarkably similar: magical shrine maids must work together to seal some power of darkness. Mixing reincarnations, allusions to shinto and playing heavily on the dynamics between the female leads, these anime also have plenty of yuri vibes that are actually canonical in KnM. While UM has much more comedy than the darker KnM they both rework the same themes in a more or less successful manner.

Galadriel

Umi Monogatari and Kannazuki no Miko are extremely similar, both of them feature 2 shrine maidens possessing supernatural powers and must work toghether to defeat/seal powers of darkness. Both of them feature a yuri theme and a similar feeling. While Umi Monogatari has much more comedy, KnM sends some dozes of serious drama at times. Anyway at what i mentioned above this shows are pretty much alike, if you liked one of them check the other one as well.

Magical girls coming together to fight a evil that threatens their love and way of life. MMPPP actually has mermaids in it where Umi Monogatari doesn't but both are tales of good against bad. MMPPP is more playful and light hearted where Umi Monogatari takes things a little more seriously. Check one out if you liked the other as they have a similar feel to each other.

Both of these are cute magical girl shows. The main characters used to live in the ocean, but live on land to fight evil. They both not only have cute transformations, but romance with human boys.

Heartcatch Pretty Cure!

Heartcatch Pretty Cure!

The legendary warrior, Cure Moonlight, was defeated and it's up to shy Tsubomi and fashion-obsessed Erika to step up and become the next Precure team. Together they must battle the Desert Messengers, an evil organization preying on the negative emotions blooming in people's hearts. They want to help their friends and the quickly-wilting Great Heart Tree by collecting Heart Seeds, but can they prevail given they are the weakest Precure in history?!

Although they both seem like super stereotypical magical girl series, for some reason I enjoyed Umi Monogatari and Heartcatch PreCure oodles more than seems entirely logical. Each has all the magical girl elements typical of the genre, but are blended together in a very charming way. I especially liked the character interactions.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

Nanoha used to be a normal grade school student until one day she found a ferret in the woods -- but he's no ordinary ferret! His name is Yuuno, he hails from another world, and he needs Nanoha’s help to complete his mission: to capture the Jewel Seeds (mysterious stones that imbue their wielder with great power) that fell to Earth. Along with Yuuno, Nanoha must now collect the Seeds and protect her world, but she isn’t alone. A rival is also trying to collect the Seeds for an unknown purpose, and only Nanoha has the power to stop her…

Nanoha and Umi Monogatari differ from normal magical girl titles in that they absolutely do not come off as typical magical girl titles. It's hard to quantify why, but both feel more adult and have more to them in general than the usual generic Sailor Moon-style romp. Liked one? Try on the other for size.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...

While Puella Magi Madoka Magica is by far the darker of the two, both it and Umi Monogatari offer a change from the usual happy-fun magical girl show, throwing cute characters into depressing situations.
