Both Mahoutsukai no Yome an Natsume Yuujinchou have a protagonist that can see extraordinary things. They both suffer a great deal in their childhood because of their ability to see what normal people can't. Both anime tell the tale of their protagonists' lives and how they deal with the world that is beyond the ordinary human eyes.

Both deal with main character seeing spirits with emotional experiences.

Both are neither your typical shoujo anime (based on an ongoing manga) with a redheaded leads. In both Akatsuki no Yona and Mahoutsukai our heroines are both gifted in a fantasy world, who learn and begin to form their own definitions of family and love. Both heroines share an underlying romance with tall, dark, deep-voiced males, as well as beautiful coming-of-age stories. They are also both REALLY underrated!

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.

Although their tones are different, both shows are about an intimidating but tutelary skeleton wizard who cares about his "family" of fantasy misfits.

the way the show takes serious tones then follows it up with funny and endearing cartoonish moments kept making me think about fma. another similarity is a kick ass OP which is always a plus.

Here goes my 1st recommendation. Both of these girls feel all alone during their childhood (like how mine was) because of their special ability whether it be seeing spirits or the ability to read minds. Then their life gets turned upside down when they meet someone who takes them out and shows them how special they really are. (too bad I have yet for that to happen to me).

While the setting could not have been more different, the two main characters are identical.
Powerful non-human, who despite not being able to feel human emotions, admires humans for them and wishes to understand them and his apprentice, young woman with exceptionally troubled past.

Both Chise and Watanuki are plagued by their ability to see spirits/monsters. They both encounter a wise and powerful sorcerer, Elias and Yuuko who teach them magic and how to deal with otherworldly creatures. Chise and Watanuki are exceedingly kind people but lack a sense of self-worth and will give to the point of harming themselves - something they must learn to overcome if they want to understand what it means to love those important to them.

When it comes to relaxing Slice of Life animes, Natsume Yuujinchou, Mushishi and Aria comes to mind. While it is true that the former two are more closer to Mahoutsukai no Yome in terms of the themes they are dealing with (supernatural elements), Aria and MnY do share many similarities.

(This recommendation was made from my early impressions of the first 3 episodes of Mahoutsukai no Yome).

Both involve telling short, episodic tales on how life can be very beautiful should we view it in a positive light, allowing them to be great shows to ease our stressful minds that took a  read more
