These two shows follow an outcast type girl who is learning magic in a school with other girls. Both deal with witches and have a fun and entertaining art style. Mahou Shoujo-tai Arusu is made more with kids in mind, but both are and enjoyable watch.
The similarities between these two shows seem rather obvious. Both have a strong young female lead and a highly symbolical story taking place in an imaginary world. They also share both light hearted moments and deep tragedy. One must add that "Erin" is the darker of the two and though both shows are aimed at a young audience "Erin" is clearly meant for a slightly older one than "Alice". These shows share many qualities and have very different flaws. I hope people will buy/watch these shows so that producers will be encouraged to make more animes sharing this quality and spirit.
The same childlike sense of wonder
Theyre morality tales
The tragedy and uplifting nature that all the best children oriented material has
The bad comedy (maybe I've just outgrown it)
(Much of these things can also be found in most Ghibli films)
Both are coming of age stories set in a fantasy world where a strong young female lead has to try to change the world around her. Both have the main characters heavily involved in beasts in their world and both shows are aimed at kids. I honestly would recommend both shows because they were both so good!
Both anime are quite similar in several ways including character archetypes especially the main characters being rookie witches who want to use magic to make others happy as well as the fact that they have a couple of companions throughout their stories, though they on the other hand, are quite different. Both shows have a similar sort of feeling, though personally I would have to say that while Little Witch Academia quite obviously draws inspiration from Mahou Shoujo-tai Arusu, that is why perhaps it does everything better, albeit quite lighter in atmosphere.
Tweeny Witches (Mahou Shoujo Tai) is a bit more stylistic than Soul Eater, and with quite a more wild story telling pattern. But what's really striking similar between the two shows, besides dealing with the topic of witches, is the art design. Especially evident in the backgrounds and the ways the cities are drawn.
Honestly, this recommendation is more because of the art than the stories or characters. If you're a huge fan of straight up action shounen and not more wild storystelling, you might want to pass.
I got a similar feeling from both anime. In both anime are mahou shoujoish anime where a young girl becomes a witch; and together with their mentor/friends they have all kind of adventures in the world of magic; and often have to save their friends from evil magic. Both have medium length episodes but have a quite lot of episodes to make up for the episode duration.
In Kuromajo has a duo of one old and one young witch as main characters and it mostly takes place in the real world; while Mahou Shoujotai has a trio of young witches and takes mostly place in a fantasy world. Also Kuromajo focuses more on SoL and comedy. read more
Much of the similarity between these two are reflected through the titles themselves! Both are set in a realm of magic, within a (very Hogwarts-y) magical institute, and the young female leads are incredibly similar 'happy witches'. The central trio of best friends in both series are also alike.
Little Witch is the lighter of the two with some great and endearing comedic moments. And, due to its short length, it does not get as much exploration of the characters or the world (both of which are utterly fascinating) as Mahou Shoujo-tai, or Tweeny Witches. At 20 episode, the latter does very well in that regard and also delves into some unexpected yet interesting themes.
Both are wonderfully creative and a very enjoyable watch. read more
While I wouldn't recomend the movie if you know nothing about Bleach, both happen to be about girls finding out the truth of something or another. A girl is rather the main heroine almost, and their is a simular vibe to the two.
Both animes reminds me of each other as they have magic, witches and wizards.
The plot may be diffrent but I think both directors want to tell you the same
meanings. There is also more similarity which you can find for yourself while watching.
It is worth to watch them both as they have very unique world settings and great characters.
Both of the girls in this are preteens who are growing up in their own way and go through life learning to believe in theirselves, same as their friends. Their is a magic theme to both, and the art work is in each very nice, though it should be mentioned that Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu is rather different then the norm art style wise.
