Both of these manga are from VIZ's kids collection and are perfect for young kids or fans of the video games. They are both about an unlikely hero who is magically transported to another world where they make new friends and help save the day. The dialogue and pacing of the stories are similar and I'm certain if you liked one, you'd like the other as well.
