Both anime explore the different relationships between a human character and a fantastical one. In addiions, the both have unique character designs for their non-human characters, beautiful environments, and some darker themes beneath their fantastical exteriors. I'd recommend them both on their own merits, but I reckon if you have enjoyed one, you'll probably enjoy the other.

What these animes have in common might not meet the eye at first glance, but they are playing within a magical and historicl setting (though culturally different). They feature red-haired female leads who have lived through betrayal by the closest people to them. Both series have a romantic streak. They are visually appealing and have a good (Yona) or even superb (Magus Bride) storyline and character design.

Love both, två of the Best in my book.

Do you love fantasy and a very good story, this to are for you.

The one thing who is diffrent the most with this two anime is that in "Magus Bride" there is magic.

Both have main characters who can see magical/spiritual creatures, and both characters deal with the negatives of this. Both meet a magical being who becomes their love interests, and both learn more about their respective magical worlds from their love interests.

Some motifs of Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi immediately made me think of Mahoutsukai no Yome.

  • Parental abandonement due to magical sight
  • (Magical sight)
  • An ancient creature announcing to the heroine that she is his bride
  • The bride has an explicit monetary value
  • Heroine is moved to a new place where she lives with supernatural beings

Both center around a budding romance between a human and non-human. Both include a cast a colorful side-characters and spend a great deal of time exploring the world around the characters. Both have beautiful animation and music. Main difference is that the plot of Bed and Breakfast for Spirits involves food while the plot of Ancient Magus Bride involves magic.
