The name of the anime says it all "Fantasista Doll": an anime about dolls existing in fantasy brought to the real world. It is about the relationship between the dolls and their master.

【Story】Rating: 7

The story plot is predictable throughout the series: the main character Uzume signs a contract which leads her to owning 5 dolls. Other players have to duel with her in a battle and steal Uzume's cards in order to achieve their goals. It is pretty straightforward, however in some episodes it was confusing to understand right away. And because of the confusion, some points were deducted but nevertheless it was still a read more

Recommendations

Selector and Fantatsista are both of the card game genre, but one of the ways they vary from the normal card game Anime is the fact the main characters are female. The main character is naïve and doesn't understand the rules for the game. Both series have wishes fulfilled for those playing. Irony is that while Fanasista is a more light fair, the reason for the wish fulfillment is darker in the fact who ever is granting the wishes happens to be after the main characters cards and is manipulating things. Selector is the darker series and the “goal” behind granting the wishes isn't revealed early on like it is in Fanasista. Still... most series of the card game genre are aimed at a male audience rather then a female audience and these break that particular part of the mold.
Living dolls go on fights with the help of their human master.
- Both main characters are cute and start out normal.
- Both include magic cards that can summon different things that can fight for them.
Fate/Zero has some sort of spiritual/virtual figures made real which are called Servants, Fantasista Dolls have servants called Fantasista Dolls.

Both anime has the character who handles their servants to be referred as "Master". Plus,in both anime, the servants can be called at will.

Both anime has their servants fighting for their masters.

The difference between them is that Fantasista Doll is more children friendly..
Well both main characters are young, a bit naive, and try to 'fit in' at school. However they both have enemies that can perform similar abilities as the main character can(ex, have dolls or guardian characters). Anyway, both protagonists have magical friends that help fighting off the bad guys that want to do harm.
It's more or so a slice of life meets magical friends with colorful magical transformation.

Synopsis:

Shugo Chara:
-Elementary student who is trying to discover who she is
-She ends up having her 'charas' make her transform in order to fight off bad eggs
-The student council at her school fights along
-Romance is involved


Fantasista Doll:
-Main character used to be an elite card player
-Has to command these battle dolls to fight for her
-She does none of the actual fighting, except laying down trap cards

Overall both have the same feel, friendship, adventure, action, "discovering-yourself" vibes. I'm surprised it hasn't been recommended yet.
Out of the two I reccommend Shugo Chara because it has better character development, plot, understanding, and was more interesting than Fantasista Dolls has been.
They have similar content, though the genres are different. It features a main character who is a card wielding user, and summons their Z/X or dolls to fight off other users. Once summon, they are either in a group, or singles, helping and protecting their card users.

Fantasista Doll is a lighthearted show, where they uses dolls as fighting combatants and fight as a group. Z/X is somewhat dark, when a dimension is invading Earth and uses Z/X as their summons.
