CCS and Nanatsuiro Drops are really similar because of the main idea, in CCS Sakura picks cards and in Nanatsuiro Sumomo picks stars.
Kero and Yuki are really similar too, both are supposed to be the "annyoing stuffed animal" although Yuki is less annoying than Kero.
No use to run from it: Nanatsuiro Drops is a worse version of Card Captor Sakura. The ND story is heartwarming and cute? Yes. Is it well developed? Not at all.
If you want to watch some romance featuring a magical girl, give Nanatsuiro a shot, but CCS is WAAAAAAAAAY better on all aspects.
Similar storylines. Both main characters are very cute, very caring, and have a little animal "sidekick" that has much information about what is being collected. Both Sakura and Sumomo adapt to the idea of having magical powers and having to search for the magical items in similar ways. In CCS they are collecting Clow Cards, in ND they are collecting Stardrops. ^O^ Sakura and Sumomo kinda look alike too. ^^
The heroine finds a cute animal or stuffed animal that can talk and takes it home. The animal then turns her into a magical girl and tells her that she has to collect jewel seeds or star drops. Soon after she has to compete with a rival magical girl.
The first thing I thought after having completed both Nanoha and Nanatsuiro Drops is "wow, it's like they're practically the same show". Sumomo and Nanoha both have to collect something, with the help of a cute "pet", which can talk. Sumomo and Nanoha both face similar tsundere "antagonists", Prima Asparas and Feito, respectively. The main difference between Nanoha and Nanatsuiro Drops is that the latter focuses much more on the love between Sumomo and Tsuwabuki-kun. There are plenty of other subtle differences to keep you amused, so unless you dislike the genre mahou shoujo, I'm sure if you loved one, you'll at least enjoy the other.  read more
In both, the main character finds a talking stuffed animal/ animal and takes it home. The main characters also has to collect stardrops/jewel seeds for their "pet."
In both, there is someone else competing for collecting those seeds/drops.
Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha and Nanatsuiro Drops have a lot in common; a human who transforms into a cute animal encounters a girl, and the main character begins her journey as a magical girl collecting scattered seeds/drops. Soon, a rival appears who is looking to collect the seeds, and the shows get progressively more dramatic. For differences, Nanoha has a lot more action, and Nanatsuiro drops' main focus is romance. While both include magic, Nanoha takes place in more of a sci-fi setting, and Nanatsuiro Drops is more fantasy-like.
The simularities between the two story lines are in some ways frigtening. While they are different, there is that sameness about them, that makes one think. Both are ironically done by clamp, both have magical girls, and they collect stuff in a jar, trying to be able to achieve that special thing. They have stuffed animals around their sides, and Koboto's main two characters have simularities in looks those from Nanatsuiro Drops, except in Koboto, they have longer hair.
Both of these have a nice twist at the end and have a little more romance than the typical magical girl anime. If you like one I think you would most likely enjoy the other. Both have a cute love story and characters fighting to preserve what they hold dear in life.
If fantasy and magic are themes of your interest, then both series may interest you. Plus, there's the comedy, drama, and later romance that comes into play. Both anime(s) contains the magical girl theme with the main heroine being the magical girl.
The relationship between Sumomo and Masaharu is similar to the relationship between Konoha and Amano, and yet some of the dynamics are reversed. Each of the characters brings something to the relationship, and balance each other out. The relationships are also mellow in nature, with only mild conflict, making for a sweet slice-of-life piece.
Both anime series has outstanding animation while posessing scenes for observing (as well as remarking) on constellations. Inaddition, the shows deal with elements of slice of life that are expressed in a light hearted manner.
Both of these Anime are magical girl Anime. One is a more classic type, while the other makes its own ground. However, there are "rules" the girls have to follow and in both Anime the girls are looking for something specific.
Jewel pet tinkle has way more things incommon with nanatsuiro drops then the original jewel pet, i noticed this after watching a few episodes of both.
they are both heartwarming anime.
Both main characters have a crush on a guy but are too shy too say it yet...
and they are of the same gender: mahou shoujo.
For me these two stand out as Magical Girl classics. Sailor Moon is the start of the genre while Nanatsu-Iro Drops is a series which tends to be more forgotten, yet is the classic Magical Girl where they collect in order to achieve something.
Both anime are about a dence pink pure hearted pink haired girl who gets mixed up in collecting mysterious gems or crystles to ' send a strange cute toy back to there home planet ) Although in Nanatsuiro Drops he is trying to turn back into a human .
While Umi Monogatari and Nanatsuiro Drops are both magical girl shows, they mainly focus on the relationships between the characters. There are a few action scenes in each anime, but what is most intense is the character drama. While they both have relaxed pacing and music, they become more dramatic as they progress (although Umi Monogatari is much darker).
-Involving magical girls
-Girl finds a cute being that requests for help by capturing these certain stuff in order to have their wishes granted
-Girl is given magical powers and has friends who help too/ companions
-Of course, there are also enemies
-Is very pure as in nothing dark or perverted etc.
-Involves VERY cute romance
-Of course, both main characters are clutz/clumsy airheads
-Houkago no Pleiades is more sad, but if you like one, you'd love the other
Nanatsuiro Drops and Puchi Puri Yuushi both have cute, 'fluffy' settings with magic as a theme. They also both focus on romance, although the romance is more prevalent in Nanatsuiro Drops. Both of the main characters in these series have to deal with "rivals" who are sometimes viewed by the main character as friends and overcome emotional struggles as well as physical ones.
Both these anime are similar in a way of how some characters interact each other in a way. They also both feature girls transforming and fighting, however Natsuiro Drops contains much more of an innocent feel to it. Lastly, the main characters in both series has a best friend who usually just stands in the background of the fighting, but tries to support them to the best of their abilities.
both focuses on romance, with some sad elements. however, both brilliant anime full of action and magic. both totally worth watching! has a certain fairytale atmosphere to both anime, beautiful classical music and wonderful animation quality.
Both series share a few similarities in the story line. The endings are also quite alike, though I'm not going to spoil it for anyone who hasn't watched either. =P
I recommend both series to anyone who has yet to watch them =]
These two anime titles have almost the same plot, with a girl who knows nothing about powers and one day a stuffed toy visits her. Both the stuffed toys in these anime titles have a male human as their original form. However, Nanatsuiro Drops has a more complicated plot than Magical Canan which makes it not so much cliche of a plot.
