Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Both of these great anime are about different sorts of magic. They are both very humorous and have similar character characteristics. Both of these anime are funny and i would strongly reccomend them. I enjoyed both of these anime very much and I think you will too.

Plotwise... character wise... even genre wise, these anime don't appear very similar.

However, during some parts Zero and especially the end of FMA, reminded me a lot each other. Both deal with the idea of "Earth" and how there's another world out there. I enjoyed how they made the connections between the current world and Earth (especially during WWII) and it's weapons.

If you like these ideas in anime, then you'll definitely enjoy both of these!! They're both fun in their own ways with a hint of humour and I believe the girl that plays Al is the same voice as Louise.

SaiAkuto SaiAkuto says...

Both of these animes take place in a world full of magic where impossible became possible. If you like watching stories which are owerflowed with magic and humour you'll for sure like the one I reccomend.

Happiness!

Happiness!

In a world not unlike our own, mages are commonplace and schools are separated between normal students and magic users. Yuma Kohinata is a student at one such school, Mizuhosaka Academy. On the way home from buying chocolates with his androgynous friend Jun, Yuma is given chocolates from school idol Haruhi Kamisaka; things become even more complex once the magic wing of the school has a gas explosion, displacing all of the magic students into the normal section – including Haruhi! Now, Yuma finds himself thrust into the world of magic, and must deal with the various women who vie for his affections; can he juggle his priorities and continue to pass his classes?

If you have seen either of these animes you will undoutfully like the other. They both go along the lines of the magical schoolgirls Vs. one protaganist and have one or more of the schools students after them. Both have there funny parts but more so in Zero. Both are good animes so I recomend seeing one if youve seen the other.

Aburi Aburi says...

Zero no Tsukaima and Happiness are two of a kind I think.

They are both mostly a one on one romance that takes a sideline to the story. Both center around a magic school with a female mage lead character and a romantic interest that is more than he seems.Though the female leads are exact opposites of each other...

sabrielsharmony sabrielsharmony says...

both take place in a magical world though the story in zero no tsukaima is more engaging. also both involve a school that teaches magic.

Both of these animes are about a character who is transported to an alternate universe. Both of these include a couple who can fight anything that comes their way. The couples both also have to overcome the fact that the characters are from different universes. Also, the couples have the problem that one character is of a higher rank of the other.

cahbayb cahbayb says...

The concept of someone getting stuck in another world are in both of these animes. They are very similar in that they go to this new world and find love, go on misc adventures in hopes to stop war and find peace. Aside from the characters personalities one a harem the other a reverse harem, they are basically the same.

Ritzerk Ritzerk says...

Both have a magical story with a smooth plot. Although there is more romance and action in Fushigi Yuugi, Zero no Tsukaima is not dissapointing. It got a lot of cutesy love going for it!

Same leading female voice actor. Same tsundere main character, and same studio doing the animation. Romance, love triangles, and action! :) Main characters live together in both.

kjmerlinz kjmerlinz says...

The main character Aria has the same voice actor as Loise and both have similar personalities. Overpowering, demanding nobility treating others as slaves. Although the plot is very different the tsundere theme is the same.

Exanna Exanna says...

Both a tsunderes, action, romance, harem, magic and so on. The characters are almost the same, Aria and Louise really look like each other, so do Siesta and Shirayuki, and Reki and Tabitha.

both are about a guy sent to a different place. in oda nobuna the mc is sent back in time. in zero no tsukima, the mc is sent to a different world.

both have fighting, and the occasional ecchi scenes, the female leads are both tsunderes, and both mc's have something special to bring. (in oda, the mc knows where when and how the battles will be faught, and in znt, the mc can weild weapons.)   both are great anime's in mu opinion, and if you like one, you'll probably like the other.

Kalmorph Kalmorph says...

Both main characters of these two animes came from different universes, and begin to serve a girl, who initially treats him like a worm, but then begins to treat him with more affection (Tsundere characters).There is also the fact that in both anime, the main characters know how to handle situations while others do not.If you liked this anime,'ll surely enjoy this other.

alelouya1 alelouya1 says...
