If I were to describe this anime in one sentence, it would be: "Pokemon with Battle Dolls!"

Story: 6/10
We follow little Mizaki, a little girl wanting to see her mother after years and years of being away from her. Upon arriving in the city where her aunt lives, she sees a jumbo vision screen that has two little battle dolls (known as Angles) fighting one on one. She is intrigued by them and decides to try it out for herself, unknown to Mizaki her mom is actually much closer than she thinks. This is the base of the storyline, along the way she meets new friends read more

Plot Summary: Suzuhara Misaki moves to Tokyo city in order to attend school and for a hope that she will see her mother, who left 7 years previous to work in Tokyo. After exiting the station, she sees on a big screen two people fighting. However, these are not people - rather they are Angels, which are dolls controlled by a Deus. These dolls are custom made, and they fight in Angelic Layer, which is the name of the sport. She is told all this by the scientist Icchan, who walked up to her and started telling her this read more

Recommendations

A toy has become one of the most popular competitions. Build your own customized miniature fighter and use it in duels on a special arena against various opponents. Some of them may become your friends, some may use quite underhanded methods to win. Catch up to your parent. And maybe you'll even find love along the way.
Both shows are about 15 cm (roughly) tall robots and some form of tournament battles. You get to customize and train your companion while fighting against various kinds of opponents in normal or tournament style battles. Both main characters start in a near similar fashion working their way to the top. I find this to be the most appropriate Anime to recommend when watching Moon Angel.

Main difference however is ammunition is live and Shinki's have full A.I when compared with "Angel" who need platforms to battle. Rest is similar.
