Sword Wielding Otherworldly female main characters that are overly obsessed for their duty who eventually fall for a poor unsuspecting man who accidentally met them and feel a duty to protect the female cast. To make it even better, in both anime the main female characters have no clue how love should feel and are confused =P.

the 2 anime are base on destroy something to acquire It's all about normal people who have to fight even if they dont want to.

Both are have heavy shounen plot lines mixed with a variety of mythological allegories and a dash of romance. I personally find Shana to be the superior, especially in the romance an umour department, nut F/SN has better fights and mythological connections. Both are great shounens that are not to long, like some of the very popular ones, and are excellent choices if you want a lighter anime with fights and love.

In both, the boy's world is suddenly turned upside down upon meeting a supernatural being that almost had him killed but got saved by a girl, with magical powers, wielding a sword and great fighting skills. This marked the begining of a bizzare relationship.. Also you will find that the boy is also special that caused them to live in a world far from the ordinary

Both series start off featuring a male lead whose life is (mostly) normal, until that one moment where he ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time, which results in the addition of a female sword-wielding partner and a battle of life or death. Also in both is a latent ability hidden within each of the male leads not fully exploited until the arrival of said partner, an ability that, when finally tapped, proves useful for overcoming the obstacles each side must face.

Magic, fighting, colourful art. They both have em and are great watches. Although Fate Stay Night gives off a more colder feel than Shakugan no Shana.

Powerful girl + weak guy who strives to become stronger. Romance + action + fantasy

Shana; powerful but confused with feelings and duties Saber Yuji; powerless, useless, just a pain the ass Shirou Similar historical plot and legendary names, not enough explained characters and turn of events..

Similar plotlines. Plenty of fighting. Tsunderes. Animation quality is relatively similar. Relatively similar tone and level of tension. Strong female characters.

These two have same style, love and fantasy fighting theme. The female protagonist both starts off with "Cold Heart". Later, they start to learn what is "love".

The starting point of this two anime are pretty similar; a boy's life turned upside down after meeting a girl. The girl turned out to be some kind of a tool of war. Has only a destiny to fight. The boy on the other hand, is weak and desperate. But as he got to know the girl he met who changed his life, he wanted to be at least useful for her. Both main character's battle strategy concept is kind of similar; the boy's are one who's ordering the moves for the girl. Both plot is kind of similar too, in a way. Defeat the bad guys   read more
