-Tsubomi and Amu are girls who want to change the personality
-Tsubomi and Amu also have pink hair
-Also have a similar thing:
Shugo Chara: Have a egg in heart. When they despair become a X-egg
Heartcatch Precure: Have a flower in heart. When they despair wither away
Although their not similar in content, they are similar in execution and style...
So basically, if Gurren Lagann was a magical girl anime, it would be Heartctach Precure! (And vise-versa.)
-Both have awesome and over-the-top battle sequences.
-Both have the "Determination" thing going on.
-Both play their genres straight, but in a good way.
-Both have simple plots that are executed very well.
-Both have great characters that make you want them to persevere.
-Both share crazy art styles and style of animation.
-Both share very funny comedic moments.
-Both have hot blooded characters in them. (Kamina and Kumojaki respectively.)
-Both have heartwarming moments.
-Both have emphasis on teamwork.
If you liked one you may like the other, even if you hate magical girl or mecha anime they both manage
to be fairly entertaining. read more
Both shows play their genre's tropes straight and then some into delicious ridiculousness. They also have many genuinely heartwarming and sad moments despite its otherwise silly tone.
They also share many elements like similar finishers (Especially Fortissimo and Giga Drill), an intense space climax in enormous scale, boiling hot blood, and a main protagonist that breaks out of his/her shell to become one of the coolest characters in the show.
Over the top action scenes and very touching moments despite their solid comedy and exaggerated style. Teamwork, friendship and determination are main themes of these series.
Different settings but in my opinion they can cross the barrier of dislike towards their genres (mecha and magical girl respectively) to be enjoyed by anyone. They also feature an epic climax to their stories that makes them unforgettable.
There many similarities between these two show:
1. Mahou shoujo - Girls save the world with fighting against some dimensional thing or monster per week.
2. Tsubomi and Matoi (Pink) is pretty much same. Timid girl who want change herself.
3. Erika and Yuma (Blue) is energetic-type girl and always bluntly says what she is thinking.
Heartcatch is basically a magical girls counterpart of DBZ during the fights:
Flying and teleporting characters, crazy kicks and punches, visually absurd energy moves clashing each others... Even some sound effects!
If you like the fight style in Dragon Ball Z you are likely to at least enjoy the action in Precure.
Magical girl series that feature touching episodic stories, mostly surrounding the classmates and family of the protagonists. They also share character designer and are made in a way for fun exaggerated character reactions.
Both Involved Two Main Characters Who Transform Into Strong Magical Girls
Both Have Crazy And Bizarre Fight Scene
Both Maybe Sometimes Get Dark In A Different Way
Both Have Similar Main Characters
Both Are Very Fun To Watch
Both Have Impressive And Beautiful Background Art
And They Both Have A Similar Ending
If You Like Flip Flappers, I Would Recommend You To Watch Heartcatch PreCure, Pretty Much It Is The Other PreCure Season That Might Have A Similar Feel When You Watch It
They're significantly different in tone, but are very similar in many ways.
The plot revolves around the life forces of everyday people, which is the source of the magical girls' power. But when the life force is corrupted by stress and grief, it turns people into monsters.
The pink girl is insufferably naive and shy, but underneath hides boundless potential
The blue girl seems energetic, but is deeply troubled by what she can't achieve
The yellow girl seems like a tough and flawless role model, but hides a softer side.
The purple girl feels guilt over a tragic event, and seems cold and heartless because of it, but she warms up to the others.
The endings are very similar
both animes are happy,cheerful,and cute.In both animes the characters have power.
They use these powers to help others.In lilpri, they spread happiness by singing while in Heartcatch Precure they fight to protect the earth from darkness.
both animes have adventures and they are fun to watch!
For one point the character design is a obvious similiarity between both, but not quite the only one.
Heartcatch Pretty Cure usually has its quite episodic scheme of having a light focus on a character somewhat close to the main characters, or whom they meet. These characters have troubles, hence get there withering "Heart flowers" stolen and transform into monsters, whose probably one special aspect is that they are now able to freely outspeak their trouble. Doing so, having sometimes the source of their trouble hear that (and with a bit help of the Cures purifying magic of course) their trouble get in some way or another solved (or ceases to be the big problem of before).
Ojamajo Doremi Naisho is a chain of loose short stories, set between the third and forth season of the parent story. (Knowledge of the parent story is not 100% nescessary. I only watched the first two seasons and about half a dozen of the other two and that was plenty enough.)
Ojamajo Doremi has 5 female "witch novice" protagonists. Quite as like in Heartcatch Pretty Cure, each episode has a focus on other characters in the vicinity of the protagonists or on one of whom they meet. These character have about quite similiar problems as in Heartcatch Pretty Cure and (sometimes with a little help of their magic) help these characters to solve their problems.
Ojamajo Doremi Naisho, however, deals with the problems in a more serious and realistic manner. Magic is an important part in its parent story, but plays a rather minor role in Naisho (and the movie). In Ojamajo Doremi Naisho people generally solve their problems by themselve or with help of an advice (sometimes given by one of the main characters who only used their magic to change their appearance to disguise themselves.)
This and the fact that some of the problems dealt with are quite more serious than in Heartcatch Pretty Cure, makes in my humble opinion, Ojamajo Doremi Naisho more mature and serious than Heartcatch Pretty Cure, and about most of the typical Magical Girl titles.
Technically looking both series have a strikingly similiar character design, which is not really surprising. The Ojamajo Doremi Franchise is pretty much the second big sister franchise of the Pretty Cure Franchise (as between the Ojamajo Doremi Series and the Pretty Cure Series was Ashita no Nadja). Hence technically Heartcatch Pretty Cure is superior, through Ojamajo Doremi Naisho is not this bad either.
Another point may be the voice cast. Ojamajo Doremi's protagonist have voices trimmed to be childisch (which gets on the nerves sometimes), while Heartcatch Pretty Cure has not. Through the side characters of Ojamajo Doremi Naisho, on whom the focus is actuall on, don't have this problem.
Conclusivesly, having watched Ojamajo Doremi Naisho first I was really hoping Heart Catch Pretty Cure to be its worthy successor. Successor it is, through perhaps not yet worthy. For all who like Heartcatch Pretty cure, I really recommend its "bigger sister".
Both anime follow a similar formula: a character has some problems or is feeling down, then the bad guys steal his/her heart flower and turn him/her into a monster or try to make his dream come true which causes trouble for everyone and it's up to the heroines to defeat the bad guys and turn things back to normal.
The main duos in these shows are strikingly similar in that the protagonist is the quiet, low-key, and well-reserved type who needs the confidence to face the world and her partner is the loud, in-your-face, eternally optimistic, and energetic type who is the main reason why the protagonist gets out of her shell. These two shows are among the most unique representations of their respective genres with huge multiple demographic appeal. From their amazing soundtracks to their eye-catchingly amazing visuals and well-done voice acting (especially from Figure 17's English dub), both shows just scream epic and enjoyable with masterful narratives, interesting premises, and generally great fight scenes where said duos must work as a team to win because they can't afford to lose at all. read more
