Both manga are about a Japanese girl that gets transported to another world. There are some people after the heroine since Yuri is to be used as a sacrifice by the Queen while Noriko is the person who will awaken the Sky Demon. Fortunately the heroine gets saved by a handsome guy who takes her under his protection.

They share similar themes: Shoujo, Romance - but primarily the theme of 'person in a strange world'. Both deal with a japanese girl who is transported to a different era/world and she meets a handsome guy who protects her.

Both Anatolia Story and From Far Away have the same feel between the main characters.  The girl from our world and the guy from the other world develop equally strong feelings for each other; the manga reads quickly as you try to see how they will overcome their struggles.

In both mangas female protagonists are transported to parallel worlds, and saved by chivalrous handsome saviour. Their lives are endangered as they are pulled out of modern worlds as sacrifices, and our respective heros save them and fall in love.

Both series feature a normal Japanese high schooler being transported to another world/another time, and ending up falling in love with a very powerful man.

I have personally read both these wonderful books. Both books have the main character get transport to different world/time period and both are trying to reach their goal to get back home. Both books have a thrilling and exciting romance that will leave at the edge of your seat! In both the books their main character’s have to make a tough decision to either fall their heart or go back to their pervious lives. Also if you are huge fan of the tv show “Outlander” then you will denfinlty like these amazing and well written mangas.

They both feature a heroine that is transported into another world who falls in love with an inhabitant of that world. Neither solely focuses on romance, however, as there's a lot of plot and adventure in both! (The romance is still one of the main aspects of the story though!)

they are not Suuupeer similar but they do have some common points so if you liked one you'll probably like the other. The main part where these two stories diverge in plot is that From far away isn't a reverse harem (Yona of the dawn isn't either but it's categorized as such) and Yona can protect herself while the girl from- from far away is a little damsel in distress esq - she wasn't annoying though, I quite liked her and I don't really do shojo.

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.

He meets Kaoru Kamiya, a spirited girl who runs the local dojo and is the first of several friends to accept him for who he is, not who he was. But Kenshin's past will not leave him alone, and with old rivals remerging, groups attempting to shatter the hard earned peace, and those with desire to face the legendary Battousai, all chasing after Kenshin, can he protect those he cares about and still maintain his oath?

 The male leads in each manga share the same characteristics: both are orphans, both don't like to kill, both are wandering swordsmen who are always getting into trouble, and both have a dark side that may be unleashed. Also, both manga are full of action, adventure, romance, and take place in a historical setting. If you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other.

Both Methuselah from Meteor Methuselah and Izark of From Far Away have similar character profiles.  Both are bestowed powers beyond that of normal people but don't want to use them for fear of harming others.  And both fall for girls who they want to protect more than their own safety.
