Recommendations

Whilst the similarities between the two are largely superficial, the short gap between their airing dates and period piece shoujo anime (complete with princes and sword fights) revolving around red-headed heroines not being terribly common still makes this recommendation obvious. Even without mentioning the cutting of hair.

What is most striking about the two is the very similar yet contrasting approaches of their adaptations. Akatsuki has a vibrant Korean period piece design, complete with an 'Ancient Asia' classical-style soundtrack. The world-building is also strong. Akagami has something of a medieval Europe design with a 'fairy-tale' bright colour palette and a 'magical' classical-style soundtrack.  read more

Redhead Heroine changes the life of the hero with her kindness and special "talent". In SSwU the heroine sings and in AnSh the heroine is a healer. In both the hero is from royalty. Heart warming slow romance with slice of life that will appeal to shoujo fans.

A girl of lower status becomes the center of attention for a person of royalty because of their strong will and kindness. The girl starts out only allowed to be in the presence of the lord due to their relationship, but eventually earns her way to be with him through her intelligence.

Both anime's are based off already existing products and have been improved from the original stories.

Snow White with the red hair takes place in the same sort of time period as Romeo X Juliet and has a commoner falling in love with a prince/noble.

At first the main heroine being Shirayuki/Juliet is in hiding and in both cases get found by the main character which progresses their romances from their.

Both series have side characters that support the main characters through their struggles to keep their relationship together, in which both animes share a similar theme where the main characters  read more

Both anime follow a prince and are historical. If you enjoyed some of the conflicts that Zen had to deal with in Akagami no Shirayuki-hime then you would enjoy Arslan Senki. Also the art style is similar.

Both protagonists are ambitious, goal-driven, capable, and resilient. If you love female protagonists like that, I recommend: Skip Beat!, Claymore, Hana Yori Dango, Kaichou ha maid-sama,
legend of Basara, Seirei no Moribito. Out of the list, Skip Beat! and Kaichou ha maid-sama is more light-hearted.

Both have a character and a troubled past. They are also male protagonist with Influence/Power to protect them.

However, unlike Shirayuki-hime, Mahoutsukai does not focus on much romance. But they are still very similar.

-Both anime's focus on romance.

-Both couples run into troubles that could possibly break them apart.

-Both Anime's have beautiful art style.

-Both Anime's inspire.

While I watched Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji I was reminded of Akami no Shirayuki.
If you enjoyed Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji for the story of romance I can guarantee that you will love and enjoy watching Akami no shirayuki.
I know I did!

Both Kobato and Shirayuki are light hearted, radiant beautiful women who change the world around them for the better.

If you like shoujo, you have to watch this. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-Kun is a parody of a shoujo while still being a shoujo, not to mention the show is about shoujo manga,

A little different but they do share some similarities. Inspiring love story, they both push each other to do better.

The age it take's place in is almost the same.

Both series take place in the royal/kingdoms times, and the character cast that are full of quirks. Both also revolve around a bright red-headed protaginist (Luke fon Fabre and Shirayuki), that have to leave their hometown by force. Both protagininsts were also kidnapped at some point in the series, adding plot to the series. The art animation styles are viusally similar, and are very pleasing to watch. The only difference is that Tales of the Abyss has a more advertuous and fantasy theme, and Snow White has more of a shoujo and romantic feel to it. Both animes are both really great, and fun watches.  read more

They both are about royals and the struggles one can have involving them and their rules. They both also has a similar feeling when you watch it.

These two animes have a very sweet romance. That is what really ties them together, along with that the heroines are quite different then most, which makes the story really fun to watch. But the romance is what really makes you continue watching.

Both animes have a prince and a princess like figure in them. Both animes also use swords to fight their battles, but unlike Snow White with the red hair saijaku no bahamut also use robot mechs to fight with alongside with a sword. Both animes have similar main characters in terms of them having a sense of protection towards others (main girl protagonist). Each of the animes are set in a kingdom for saijaku no bahamut tis would be "the new kingdom" and for Snow White with the red hair this would be "Clarines".

-Very similar characters
-Romance story set in a non-modern era
-Main female character has red hair
-Similar feel
-The two main characters have very different backgrounds
-There are a couple love interests, although both animes tend to focus on the two main character's potential relationship with each other, instead of any other possible relationships. 
report Recommended by NaLu
Their plots are very similar: a red haired girl with a strong and determined personality meets a hero who is a prince/earl, the hero hires the girl and their love begins.
In Akagami the heroine is a herbalist while in Hakushaku the heroine is a fairy doctor.
The settings and time are also pretty similar: around 1700-1800, towns full of happy people.
If you liked one, you will probably like the other one too.

Although the settings are a bit different--Akagami no Shirayuki-hime is set in a historical fantasy version of Europe, and Emma is set in a historical 1880s-1890s London, the tale of a lower class girl and an aristocratic man still strike the same chord. Both Prince Zen and William Jones are gentlemanly heroes who respect their love interest despite her social position. Shirayuki and Emma are both hard-working women who take pride in their work.

Both animes contain:

Kingdoms, nobles, and a strong red haired girl who fights on her own to grow and achieve something, instead of sit and cry for help without even trying.

And both have a blonde/white haired noble male character who helps the girl to walk through her path, but without doing all the job. 
report Recommended by -BestGirl
The cute romantic moments of Shirayuki made me think of The Pilots Love Song.
An enthusiastic gentlemanly prince character going out of his way for a girl, and the girl finding a way to be prince where the prince is. In both anime they are somewhat kept apart because of social status and end up stealing time for themselves when others aren't around.

Shirayuki is somewhat lighter and Pilot is a bit more serious, but both have a similar color scheme and show changes between character relations. There are similarities here and there but both shows have unique stories.

Both have fantasy worlds. The romance between Shirayuki and Zen is very similar to that of Van and Hitomi. Zen is also a prince, much like Van. Shirayuki is an outsider to Zen's country, much like how Hitomi is an outsider to Van's country.

There are two main protags: a hero who is sort of a cross between and adventurer and the brave one (Logy and Zen have the same hair color to boot) and a heroine who is somewhat bubbly and friendly but is well-versed in their profession (Escha and Shirayuki, an alchemist and herbalist, are similar jobs that require chemistry and biology to understand) The settings are also similar as to a town full of people who go along with their lives as the protags and troupe of friends (Each series have their own supporting cast) go around solving problems and going on quests and adventures!

both show a girl with a strong sense of determination. never backing down from a challenge, and working as hard as they can. they both also have a strong and cool male love interest that falls for them because of their determination and willingness to push them selves far beyond their limits. which causes the main male to slow them down so they can rest and helps them so they don't over do it

Both of these are stories about Snow White.

Standard fantasy settings with European style kingdoms and political maneuverings and both have a sweet romance at their core.

The thing that reminded me the most of Kemono no Souja Erin was the heroines. I would say they have almost identical personalities, where they are extremely kind, caring, witty, and smart, with a strong determination to accomplish their goals.

They also both have to escape their home villages from people who are trying to capture them.

They are both discriminated, Shirayuki for her red hair, Erin for her green eyes and hair since she is a descendant of the mist people.

They are also both learning to become master healers, Shirayuki being a herbalist, Erin being a Touda  read more
