The basic premise of an abandoned princess believed to be dead being accompanied by two powerful and strong "siblings" who help said princess is presented in both. Although the personalities of these princesses are quite different from each other they both seem to hold some sort of great power within them. The use of magic and powers is found in both and portrayed in a time similar to the Middle Ages when aristocracy ruled the land. Both girls are the key to changing the current status quo and pose a threat to the stability and preservation of their societies current state.
Produced by the same studio Bones, Scrapped Princess and Hitsugi no Chaika highlights the adventures of the main characters in a fantasy world. They journey across the land with a purpose along with a main female character of great importance. There is decent action, drama, and comedy along with a story to tell when they face off against personal struggles and powerful adversaries. Expect action in the form of magic and swords with spell incantations. If you're interested in fictional adventures with a fantasy setting of surprises, give these two a try.
Both series features a rejected princess who bears a burden of an ancient prophecy, pursued by various enemies, and therefore embarks on a journey with two friends who are brother and sister, and are pretty skilled in combat. They are struggling to find out truth about the MC(princess) and repel various enemies attacks on their way. Both series even have the same humour and plot twists...
This animes have soo much in common, so for me its no doubt that Hitsugi no Chaika creators were inspired by Scrapped Princess. upd: Oh well, its the same people made both. Nvm.
Both are about a princess fleeing the kingdom. Both Yona and Pacifica are wanted by the kingdom and both girls are in need of protection and get that protection by someone close to them.
Lastly, both Yona and Pacifica are super duper kawaii
I know a few others have recommended the two but the main thing I would like to add is that the princesses in the two stories are VERY similar characters. If you thought the interactions between Pacifica and her adopted brother were cute and funny, you'll LOVE the dynamic betwen Hak and Yona. Yona has a little bit more of the feel of a comedy, its lends itself often to really cute digressions, but maintains the serious plot of a runnaway princess who transforms from "useless" diva into a strong leader
Even thought the stage of bote animes are different they still are similair in allot ways, 2 girls that are searched to be killed, friends that protect them, bote in a different time and bote feel kinda the same, great to watch them bote if you like one of them...
Both series are told in a very episodic fashion where the characters are always on the move from one place to the next meeting new characters and having new adventures. Both series also deal with a character is being hunted down and having to escape danger each time from hunters and a large shadowy organization and/or villain.
Two girls on a journey across the land trying to get away from people who are trying to kill them. Nadie and Pacifica have the same bubbly personality and the humor throughout these animes is what makes them even more similar.
Well both start with a majestically child that has been rejected by their parents because of a bad omen or fortune telling. For the sake of everyone the child has to survive and so get protected by some sort of family.
Very touching fantasy stories. Pacifica (Scrapped Princess) and Chagum (Seirei no Morbitio) are both of royally families, but abandoned by them.
Both have humour (more in SP) and interesting plot. Very beautiful sceneries (better in SnM), interesting characters...
In fact, SnM is better. But I think, when you enjoyed one, you will like second too.
Main characters of those series are both unwanted (to say it lightly) in their worlds. For both a prophecy exists that says their very existence is a threat to the world and that the world will be destroyed if they are not killed in time.
In "Scrapped Princes" Pacifica has her older brother and sister to protect her.
In "Serei no Moribito" Chagum has Yonsa Balsa, a skilled mercenary, to keep him safe.
The best way I can articulate why an FMA fan would like Scrapped Princess is tone. You'll get very similar social commentary with the added bonus of some of the best sci fi I've seen. Let's just say it's not the standard fantasy world that's introduced early on. It's defiantly a dark one, that's for sure.
Both begin in the same atmosphere, the fantasy-medieval world, and head toward a bit sci-fi as the series progresses. The art is somewhat similar and the fights between the characters are also very well drawn. Even though Utawarerumono is packed with girls (a bit of a harem there), it clearly shares the same genre as Scrapped Princess. Fantasy, magic, action and awesome battles, you'll find all in both Utawarerumono and Scrapped Princess.
Both anime set in a fantasy world with medieval environment.
The world of the Utawarerumono is asian style, and the world of Scrapped Princess is european style.
One of genre of these is sci-fi, what you realize in the final episodes of the animes.
In Uta there are a lot of battle in one country, and the main characters has a home. In Scrapped Princess, the main characters are travel in the world.
Both anime are exciting.
If you've already seen Scrapped Princess, please ignore this rec since Utawarerumono tells the same basic story in a much poorer manner. Likewise, if you've only seen Uta, check out Scrapped Princess for a dramatically improved viewing experience.
I'm surprised not to find this here sooner. Reach halfway through Sora no Woto, and the real sinister backstory of the setting starts to poke through. Suddenly all the musical tones, all the moments of expressionlessness, the whole show is tinged with a huge stain of despair and oppression. Kind of like how Scrapped Princess pulled it off when the big tweest happens, just a thousand times subtler. But that silent slap to the face leaves a huge, resounding echo through the viewer.
A-1 Pictures has trolled us again (Birdy the Mighty: DECODE, Kannagi, Valkyria Chronicles); this show is kicking major ---.
Both series follow female protagonists who struggle to free humanity from the shackles of their mysterious and more advanced overseers. Honoka from The Third is definitely more self-sufficient, whereas Scrapped Princess's Pacifica is more your typical damsel in distress. Both shows are quite underrated in my opinion, and feature good character development and a fantastic, colorful setting.
Scrapped Princess and The Third are set in a time after an apocalyptic war. The weapons and technology left behind from the wars cause problems for the main characters as the stories unfold. Each series features 2 different races, one being the humans who live primitively on the land and the other being some brand of "higher" lifeforms from space sporting advanced technology and who endeavor to keep the humans in line. In both cases, the key to overcoming the conflicts that arise in the stories are the female main characters with special abilities. Although, the main character in The Third is considerably more capable of self preservation. Overall, I found The Third to be more enjoyable over Scrapped Princess despite Scrapped's higher rating. read more
Both animes feature medieval settings.
Both animes center a character of royal origin traveling their kingdoms with a band of allies who protect them from their pursuers/people who want them dead.
Both animes are around the same number of episodes.
If you liked one anime, chances are you'll probably like the other too, since they both give a similar feel which may be partly due to the setting.
And the protagonists from both animes undergo some sort of character development, seen more prominently in Arslan Senki than in Scrapped Princess.
Scrapped Princess and Tales of the Abyss have so much in common that fans of one are very likely to enjoy the other. They are both fantasy stories set in a pseudo Medieval setting where lost technology exists in the form of steam driven machines, where spells, sword fighting, prophecies and mystical battles and powerful magical/religious sects dominate. Royal but unfortunate leads and a sense of questing with plenty of travelling thrown in for good measure only make these anime even more alike.
Both series follows a fantasy like setting in a world where there exists creatures and other supernatural beings.
Lost technology exists in both series such as machines, magic, and other significant phenomenons. There is also prophecies and magical factors in the series.
Both series also has plenty of action and some struggle against certain organizations.
Both series has comedy, drama, and generally follows an adventure like theme with the characters presented.
Both anime have a similar fantasy world as their setting. They both have a cast of interesting and good looking characters. The protagonists are also similar because they are both young and have royal blood in them and they have many likable companions and friends who help them overcome the difficulties of their respective journeys.
I know alot of people will be scratching their heads at this... But I found them similar in two ways. First off they both have very defined and clear cut fight scenes, which I absolutely love in anime. All though Scrapped Princess isn't as action packed as Samurai Champloo they both have very enjoyable fight scenes.
Another similarity is the long trip where one helpless female is protected (more so in Scrapped Princess for obvious reasons -.-) by two strong fighters.
Anyway, hope it helped! :)
They are a lot alike story wise. Where-as the both Aya and Pacifica are hunted by their families and their people. both have a twin brother who doesn't have the same fate as them, the sister. Both are very good stories, they each have their differences, but they are just as good. even though Ayashi no Ceres is a little bit darker, i recommend both.
The series both hold an air of mystery surrounding the very world they live in. Both series protagonist are in similar situations, although one is a prince and the other princess, both are royalty who was unwanted and was sent to have been killed and disposed of, but were spared. They were both raised by a family who adopted them, having "siblings" they hold dear and squabble with. Consealing their identies as two unwanted royalties both protagonists experience romance and heart break. Although The Pilot's Love Song does not use magic as much as Scrapped Princess it is still a key plot device that holds both stories together and develops them both. As such in the case of both having a female protagonist who holds mystic powers and also has to hide their identities. There are other similarities that can be found upon completing both series. read more
In both series, there is the crossover of magic, fantasy, and technology involving military themes. Additionally, among the characters, there is that sibling love feeling.
Furthermore, both series feature the adventure type of theme where the characters try to discover the truth and learn more about the world that they live in. There's also that type of political and conflict-ridden plot crafted into a beautiful story.
Also, there is action, drama, tragedy, and some hints of romance in both series.
Two princesses fallen from grace are forced to embark on a journey for their survival on or near their sixteenth birthday. During this adventure they will confront many facets of the nature of the world they live in and strive to come to terms with them. This will have a great impact on the nature of their plight.
The two worlds presented share varying degrees of similarities in nature. Magic is an element with strong presence in Scrapped Princess but more subdued in Cross Ange, while Mecha is the main attraction for Cross Ange and a lot more subtle in Scrapped Princess. However the most similar point lies in the true nature of the world and what the main characters finally represent with respect to the state of that world once the adventure concludes.
Ange is a lot bolder and wilder throughout the story compared to Pacifica, but both come to deal with their identity in a world that wants them dead, and both pursue the path of the living with strong ardor despite their circumstances.
Scrapped Princess is a show that is a lot more normal and toned down, but it tells a very similar story with similar themes.
If you enjoyed Cross Ange, there's quite a few reasons why you might also enjoy Scrapped Princess, however some may find it milder to taste. If you thought Cross Ange went too far in certain areas, I believe Scrapped Princess is the closest experience to Cross Ange's story without those elements present. read more
Both Princesses are on the run and are protected and travelling with their small group of friends. Scrapped Princess has a bit more romance and has these gundam like creatures as to sisters of wellber don't, but I was pretty hooked since the first episode of Sisters and I LOVED scrapped princess. so if you liked Sisters then Scrapped Princess is DEFINITELY for you.
In both series, there is a theme of adventure and fantasy taking place in a world of cruelty, power, and dominance.
There is a plenty of action, drama, and some romance presented in both series. The main protagonist from both series are also tough and cunning with the things they do.
Both series' characters also focuses on development as well as interactions with others throughout the course of the story. It is through these relationships that they learn more about themselves and others.
Technology and the military are present in both series as the protagonists shares a sibling like relationship as they endure on journeys/missions.
Love and friendship plays major roles in the story as the world is set into a fantasy like/futuristic setting. There's something mysterious behind the scenes in both series as there seems to be an imminent war brewing.
Both shows contain a main character with a destiny that will determine the fate of the world. The concepts of fate and predetermination are focussed on strongly by each series. In either one, fate seems pretty grim. Scrapped Princess is considerably lighter than X, but they both hint towards a 'doom and gloom' conclusion throughout each respective show.
Both have fantasy elements, with magic used by the characters to combat an evil organisation. Both go on adventures, and encounter problems with some good action. They both also have lots of drama, with the guy who has a possible love interest for the main girl (who has some unfortunate fate/destiny concerning the world and it's destruction) and fight to find a way to stop it.
Good watches for those who like this type of genre, if you like one, you'll be sure to like the other.
Both are adventure stories in which the protagonists are girls that are chased because of a hidden power that they have. Both have a medieval world with some rare and mysterious technology as a setting.
The setting of each of these two series are alike in that they both have 15 year old main protagonist born into prestige, but similarly have dark emotions that serve as ghosts in their respective closets. Also in both series the main characters are charged with being/having some sort of flaw, neither knowing how or why it is so. In Scrapped Princess, Pacifica is "the poison that will destroy the world", and Oz has unwittingly committed a "sin" worthy of being banished from the earth and sent into the "Abyss" in Pandora Hearts. Overall they just remind me of each other, don't know why no one has made the connection yet. Ahah =) read more
In both anime main girl character (Rika and Pacifica) are trying to escape from their destiny which is their death. Also, many people want them dead. But all these girls want is a normal life with their friends.
Scrapped Princess is also an adventure-type anime, and it's about world destruction as well, with god-like creatures that try to balance the world and stuff. Then, both have some sci/fic parts in them, and in which <in Scrapped Princess> it's kind of confusing. Overall, both are really good anime's and are worth watching. On the other hand, Scrapped Princess is longer <26 eps>. Enjoy! ^^
Both Scrapped Princess and Trinity Blood deal with a *********SPOILERS************** world with a dominant religious body as a major political power.
While Scrapped Princess starts out as a straight fantasy series, however, Trinity Blood is more of a steam-punk society.
Both Scrapped Princess and Trinity Blood deal with post-apocalyptic tech-powered 'magic' world with a dominant religious body as a major political power.
People should be free to make good and bad decisions. But do they want that?
● girl with power to change the world
● religion that rules the world
● people trying to free the world
