Shin Shirayuki-hime Densetsu Prétear, Cardcaptor Sakura Recommendations
pretears a bit more serious and for older ppl, whilst CCS is more cute, tho they are still gr8 anime series full of magic and action!
Both are pretty standard magical girl anime with beautiful art and music.
Prétear and Cardcaptor Sakura are two magical girl anime that has a female protagonist meeting (an) otherworldly being(s) that can use magic and tell her that she has the potential to use it as well. Both are funny, have some romance, and even feature a range of magical outfits (instead of one costume, typical of the genre) for the main character to wear while she uses magic.
