The characters in Fruits Basket and Fushigi Yugi, with their different personalities, are unforgettable. Fruits Basket deals with the twelve animals of the zodiac and the curse placed upon them, while Fushigi Yugi is a story of a priestess who is trying to find the seven Celestial warriors to unlock the power to save Konan. The heroines of the series, Tohru (Fruits Basket) and Miaka (Fushigi Yugi), both have similar personalities to one another. Both series also have surprisingly sad moments and a dramatic plot line that explores the characters' pasts.

DuskFey

A girl accidentally becomes a part of something magical and decides to help those who are trapped in a world that she barely understands. There's love, danger, and curiosity about new celestial warriors or members of the zodiac. Granted, the structure of these manga may be different (a metaphorical new world vs. a literal one), but the cores are quite similar!

Red River

Red River

For no apparent reason, fifteen-year-old Yuri Suzuki is suddenly snatched out of her modern world by a pair of hands emerging out of the water. She is transported back to Hattusa, the Hittite Empire's capitol, during the time of the Bronze Age; its queen, Nakia, wishes to use Yuri has a human sacrifice. The only way Yuri can survive is by becoming the concubine to the Prince of the Empire, and Ishtar to the people of the Empire. With danger at every turn and her heart torn, will Yuri decide to stay in Hattusa, or try to find her way back home?

In both manga the heroine gets transported to another world and ends up falling in love with the guy who saved her when she first arrived. She ends up missing her chance to go back to her world and while she's stuck there she agrees to help out the emperor in Fushigi Yuugi or the third prince in Red River, at least until she finds a way to get back to her world.

Female character gets transported to another world/another time. Female character is the target of devious plots is in need of protection...enter in sexy guy(s) who keep her safe from harm. Historical fiction/romance/love triangles in both.

The Story of Saiunkoku

The Story of Saiunkoku

In an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!

Both series have a female protagonist, however there personalities are far different from each other.  I recommend these since both series have a large amount of story based in feudal china.  If you enjoy the time period and reverse harems, these both are highly recommended.

Canal

Both manga are set in a country that resembles ancient China. The heroine tries her best to help out the emperor and the people of the country and is surrounded by many handsome guys.

Appare Jipangu!

Appare Jipangu!

As a baby, Yusura was abandoned under a cherry tree along with a mysterious blue staff known as Kongoumaru. Now, Yusura is fifteen-years-old and works as a 'Hikeshiya.' Using Kongoumaru, she can absorb people's sorrow and send it back those who caused it - for a price. With the help of cheerful Minekichi, a young samurai named Samon and a ninja named Kazenosuke, Yusura helps alleviate the sadness of the world; but what she really wants is to discover the identity of her real parents and find out the origin of Kongoumaru.

Both series are created by Yuu Watase, so the artwork is very similar.  Also, they both have a historical feel to them, as well as a magical twists added in.

In both manga a Japanese teenage girl gets transported to another world, though in the case of Fushigi Yugi it's actually the world inside a book. There the heroine meets a handsome young man who saves her and ends up falling for him.
