From transforming a house, to arranging an article in the newspaper, no job is too big or too small for a mage, who are thought of highly in the public eye. Kikuchi Yume, daughter of a famous mage, has finally reached the age of apprenticeship, and must move to Tokyo to find a mentor.

Hoshi no Koe and Someday's Dreamers (Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto) share in common a sense of romantic nostalgia; not necessarily the romance of love, but the romance of high ideals, recalling the optimism and purity of earlier science fiction and placing such concepts in a modern context. The two differ in their approaches to this idea, with Hoshi no Koe as Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet vs. Someday's Dreamers as A Midsummer Night's Dream in terms of tone and context.
Although the worlds of heaven and earth used to exist as one, they are now seperated by the boundaries of time and space.

Himura Kenshin was a boy orphaned by the murder of his parents. Now he is the Hitokiri Battousai, the most feared and skilled killer in 19th century Japan.

Platonic Chain consists of short 6 minute episodes completely done with computer graphics. The series explores different facets of human life/interaction through an interesting idea: the presence of a computer program that knows of your most embarassing moments, your likes and dislikes, your ideal diet plan, the routes you take to get places, and more!
Along with both featuring rather experimental use of 3D rendering in animation, Platonic Chain and Hoshi no Koe also are largely concerned with the modern world, and how relationships work with distance communication. Though rather different in scope, the mobile phone ties these two animes together.
