One day, a mysterious girl named Kaguya was washed ashore the island of Wyndaria after a great storm. She encounters Rick, a swordsman who wound up working at the island's bakery. Apparently, Kaguya is suffering from having lost her memories and emotions. In addition, the usually peaceful Wyndaria is now swarming with pirates who came seeking for the special spirit stone that is worn around Kaguya's neck. Knowing the situation, Rick and his co-workers, Nellis, Amyl, and Aerie decided to bring back peace to island and help Kaguya regain her lost memories and emotions.

"Quod Subigo Farinam" - Terry Pratchett (Feet of Clay, 1996)

Once upon a time Sega were a powerhouse of the videogames world, but these days they appear to have lost much of their former glory - mainly because their most visible releases are little more than revisions of Sonic the Hedgehog. Fortunately the blue rodent isn't the only weapon in Sega's arsenal, and the company have a plethora of titles just waiting to be rereleased or resurrected (Phantasy Star, Rolling Thunder, Kid Chameleon, Strider, Afterburner, Space Harrier, Daytona, Panzer Dragoon, Sakura Taisen, Wonder Boy, Alex Kidd, and many others). There are even a few rare ones read more

Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan seems to suffer from an identity crisis much like its protagonist, initially starting off as a serene slice of life about bread making and ending up as a fantastical action anime. Ultimately, although it executes both sections well, this change alienates both the viewers who wanted action and those that wanted a charming Aria-esque show.

There's one thing you can't deny about the show, and that is the high quality art and animation. It's incredibly consistent, the characters faces and the beautiful scenery remain brilliant throughout, and I doubt you'll see food look so delicious in anime for some time. The read more

I write this to you as a fellow anime fan; a comrade who you can trust... someone who only wants to save you from the fresh hell that is this anime. Leave now. And never look back. Usually a show has SOMETHING to offer, whether it be by way of characters, plot, fan service, or other devices. Shining Hearts' one forte is the ability to lull you into a deep sleep, one which you wish never to wake from.

Story - 2

What story? They bake bread, offer no foreshadowing, then fart out a deus ex machina ending and treat it as a special twist. It is read more

Since I already wasted my time by watching this anime to its end, I decided I might as well do something of doubtful usefulness by writing this list of why Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan is an utter and complete waste of time.

Story: 2/10 Character: 1/10
This anime is a pseudo action-fantasy/slice of life, that does really badly at both genres. If you consider it as a slice of life, you keep getting barraged by random mystery plot shadowing scenes every few read more

How is this similar with SH? Well it's simple, when I first watched EschaLogy's first episode it made me feel I was playing a videogame and that's the same feeling you get when you watch SH. Digging deeper you'll find that these two series also share a similar RPG action/fantasy story that develops in an old village.
The lovelyness are the same with magical creatures and actions with slice of humor, only that Earl and Fairy has a slice of romance between two characters but who knows what Shining Hearts will have lest's watch ^^
* Harem
* Fantasy
* Action
* Old Times Setting
* Both Adapted from an RPG
* Old Wise Person
- These two anime's are both about one guy who's surrounded by girls on a "mysterious" island.

- Just like in Airantou, people gets stranded to the island, and the main characters ends up taking care of them.

- The animation is a lot different, but the stories are very similar.

- Some humor as well. .
Harem style series that are based off of games. Additionally, both series contain:

- fan-service
- fantasy like setting
- action
- both series has a fixed plot
- somewhat cynical protagonists
Both are set in an alternate world and are concerned with the protection of that world. They also share a likeness in having a cool, relaxing atmosphere with snippets of action added in.
