Ashita no Nadja feels like a collaboration of the general foundations from the stories Anastasia the Russian Princess and Robin Hood, set about 100 years ago, with the occasional dances and trolling over Europe amongst other things. This anime is a rough diamond and it’s a shame not as many people have seen it as one may like.

The story involves the backdrop of Nadja trying to find her mother. As she travels with a troupe of entertainers she encounters many different personalities, stories, dances and gains clues on who her mother maybe. The story is also comprised of many testing factors for read more

A modern television masterpiece is what this show is. Very few television shows, let alone longer than 13 episodes, are so well built, thought out and whole as this one and to top it all even the animation and sound production values are on a par with today's standards.

A very recommended show to everyone, and a must watch for lovers of epic dramas, romances and adventure.

Nadja is a young orphan girl who sets out of her orphanage to seek her family origins around europe of the early 20th century, armed only with her mother's party gown, journal and heart shaped brooch. She joins a traveling read more

Ashita no Nadja....oh my god this anime! Before I go on with my review let me tell a short little story. A couple of years back, my brother and I started watching this anime not knowing what to expect. But before you know it we got so hooked that we saw that last 8 episodes in Spanish not understanding a word they were saying and with no subtitles just to see what will happen. This anime becomes an emotional roller-coaster maybe unlike anything you've ever seen before. It's a masterpiece and it's sad that most people don't know about it giving it's from 2004 and read more

A true masterpiece and one of my all time favorites.
Nadja is not just some cute 'ow no, my footsie is stuck' damsel in distress.
she's cheeky and feisty and takes her destiny in her own hands.

The art is so beautiful and detailed and it's always a joy to see a traveling anime appreciate beautiful landscapes and cultures.

The characters are all lovable and grow as the story progresses.
Though the badguys are practically old men forms of jessie and james, the story is not without dangers.

The tears and laughter are completely maxed out!

Both are about orphan girls and their adventures around the world. Also,in both series,the action takes place in the Victorian era and the characters are,from many perspectives, very alike.
Nadja and Ahiru have similar personalities, they have a very kind heart and are very energetic, and also, the two are ballet dancers. In both animes there´s a love triangle: In Princess Tutu is between a prince and a knight, in Ashita no nadja is a nobleman and a thief. There´s also special objects to the girls:Nadja has a ring and Ahiru has a necklace.
They both about young blond blue eyedd girls struggling to find/wait for their mothers . Ashita no nadja has more romance and is lighter then Les Miserables, but both are amazing!!
In the anime Ashita No Nadja, Nadja, an orphan, joins a traveling street performance act called the Dandelion Troupe because she finds out her mother might be alive. She travels across Europe and finds many friends along the way that teach her things about herself. She also wears a brooch around her neck that a bunch of thieves are after.
In the anime Nadia: Secret Of Blue Water, Nadia, also an orphan, grew up in a circus. She travels across Africa trying to find out where she's from while all the while she is being hunted down for her jewel known as the Blue Water. Nadia also finds out her father might be alive.
You can see the similarities.
Both anime combine traveling to find out things about themselves, romance, and adventure.
So, I am almost positive if you like one, you'll like the other.
Nadja, the female protagonist, grows up in an orphanage. After being targeted by 2 uncover agents~? she flees for her life and joins a performance troupe that happened to pass through town that day. With her mother's dress, diary, and brooch--she tries to find her mom as she travels the world on a journey.
They're both similar in the sense that they are both constantly saved by someone in a mask that they create a bond with. The heroines are also similar because they always act cheery and are very energetic.
