Both main characters fall into a different world. The girls later fall in love with the man who rescues them from the "strange-ness" of a new world. However, they are both invovled and being used in dangerous plots to murder the men invovled. Each of these has a small fantasy/magic aspect involved in it as well.
a girl goes into a different time/world.
a guy who is met when they arrive there protect them from harm and falls in love with the girl.
both have a guy who can control the wind./is very strong
the evil person tries to get the girl for their own selfish reasons
they also chose whether they stay in the world they came to or go back to the place they were born
both girls have strong wills and are not weak.
Both mangas have an epic feel to them, and have a similar situation where the male and female lead are supposed to be enemies, but ... somehow aren't? The male characters also seem to have a 'dark side'.
Both Kanata Kara(From far away) and Basara are great adventure and romantic shoujos having a brave young girl as the main character. Also the main male character that accompanies them is very strong both in spirit and body.
The stories take place in an alternative world in ancient times. Both have an epic feeling, with two "ennemies" who fall in love.
You can't stop reading when you begin in both manga. You are never bored, they really are MUST READ !
These two manga are almost nothing alike, I'm sorry, but both are highly awesome. I read them back to back and was in LOVE the entire time. I swear, I was in a haze for a good two weeks.
Basara: Main reason I read it, the main character crossdresses. Then she falls for her mortal enemy, who wants to kill her alter ego. I will not give any more than that. :P
Kanata Kara: A girl is transported from Japan to an unfamiliar, fantasy world where she knows no one, nothing, and can't even communicate with the natives. Personally, I loved every single scene where she was learning the language.
And if that is enough, then just read for the bishies. read more
Both heroines were able to "travel" to another world where they were prophesied to appear to save said world from chaos. They have almost the sam plot but the heroine in saver has a more deeper character and is not what one would call a damsel - in - distress.
Both use "school girl in a strange land" plot, but differences between them are (that in my opinion makes it better) that Kanata Kara ends, not everyone loves her, and the characters are much more well developed. As for InuYasha the character, you'll love Izark!
Both girls in the story are transported to a different time by being attacked. There they are forced to rely on whats supposed to be their "enemy". Both of these girls show strong female leadership when most crucial, so it's not just the guy saving the girl all the time.
In the Series "Fushigi Yuugi" and "From Far Away" the female leads are brought to a strange and foreign land to save them as their priestess/leader. Each have their daring knight who will defend her at all costs.
Both have:-Historical setting, -Female protagonist from present day, -Romance, -Strong(character wise and physically) male love interest, -Magic elements.
*Ultimately the two manga just have a similar feel to them, yet they have two separate plot focuses and are great in their own way.
I wonder if the mangakas read each other manga. both main girl are like any other girl, maybe just more gentle than normal, but in both stories they try to save their precius one from sadness and sorrow.
Please Save My Earth has the same feel as Kanata Kara in that Alice/Mokuren and Noriko are both ordinary girls who discover that they're so much more. Alice/Mokuren and Noriko are extremely kind-hearted girls who wish nothing more than people happiness. Alice and Noriko can be cry-babies at times (but never excessively or annoyingly), but they do the best they can. Both are also connected to dark haired, brooding/demonish men who are their destined half, and wish to protect their soulmate with all their might.
The artwork is similar, as they're both slighly older manga from late 80's/early 90's, so they look slightly dated compared to the moe moe manga of today. But please don't let that deter you! They're both very good shoujo manga! :) read more
Plot and story-wise, there are not many similarities. However, the two main heroines are similar in that they are both very pure hearted, and try to do their best no matter the situation. The biggest similarity however, is the artwork. Noriko and Sana look so much alike. I double checked just to make sure that it wasn't the same mangaka.
the main characters are cast into another world
while noriko has to stand up against a cruel fate that had been prophesied, Jeong Su Ha agrees to leave for the other world to help change an cruelly oppressing society system
both have great art (but different) and a well developed 'other world'
Similarities: 1. The heroine was transported in a parallel universe for the purpose of fulfilling a prophecy. 2. Her love interest is a very dangerous guy who had initial thoughts of killing her but ended up becoming her protector. 3. Both guys also possess supernatural powers and controlling the wind is an ability they have in common.
4. Although both worlds were different, they deal with the same political issues and intrigues (like war and corruption).
"Mahoroba no Yobigoe" and "Kanata Kara" both have a girl who travels through time and tries to save a boy she loves. The art is really beautiful in both, and the male lead characters are both total bishies too! ♥
Extremely similar plots! In Towa Kamo Shirenai, Hitsugi protects his priestess, the himiko (Kosumo) and due to his love for her he becomes the "destroyer." Much like Izark and Noriko. The drawings are similar as well :] Although the plots are similar, From far away is sweeter, but none the less another great read for those addicted to fantasy / historical reads!
Invincible guys and brave girls are traveling and escaping from bad guys in strange worlds. Reading Immortal Rain I've found From Far Away very similar. I recomended both manga. Immortal Rain have got more humour though.
Both stories involve tabooed couples consisting of a not so ordinary girl, who is in love with a demon that is connected to her emotionally. Both demons originally plan to kill the girls, but return their love and hope to live happily with the girls somehow.
