No doubt, Aria and Maria-sama because both, as well as Girl who Leapt through time, are the same in terms of pace and storyline. For really similar, the Cat Returns. Again, something with the same pace, also Kamichu.

When I first saw The Girl Who Leapt Through Time back in November I paired it with Paprika oddly enough. Granted, the stories are different (and Paprika is a bit an anime LSD trip when it comes to the storyline and art direction), but there is a bit of romance in the same fashion of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and the fantasy/sci-fi element.

Now... I also recommend The Place Promised in Our Early Days, Paradise Kiss, and a slew of Hayao Miyazaki's/Studio Ghibli's films.

The Place Promised in Our Early Days has the romance and the topic of time (well, parallel universes) that Leapt Through Time has. The animation is quite stunning as well.

Paradise Kiss is a 13 episode series. It's a modern day, slice of life series. It's correlation though with Leapt Through Time is they're both "coming of age" series. Makoto had no clue what to do after her education and didn't dabble in love (in the beginning). Yukari, in Paradise Kiss, has been told what to do her entire life by her mother. After Yukari is scouted as a model her life is turned upside down - and she has an idea what she wants to do once high school is over and she dabbles with love.

As for the works of Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki... just about anything from their catalog. NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Whisper of the Heart, The Cat Returns, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle (and later this year Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea and Tales From Earthsea). Each piece has strong characters, beautiful animation, romance, and there's always some sort of "coming of age" theme to them. If anyone hasn't seen these pieces yet, they should. laugh

Oh - and maybe a bit of a "No duh!" would be the other works in The Girl Who Leapt Through Time franchise. Unfortunately I believe the only one that has been translated into English is a manga called The Girl Who Runs Through Time.

Oddly enough I kinda get the Paprika/Girl who leapt through time match up. Or maybe I'd have chosen Millenium Actress.

Along the lines of discovering a latent power and coming to terms with the mixed blessings that follow, I can't help but think of Kamichu. Along those lines, Kimagure Orange Road has some similar themes.

If anyone has any new suggestions or recs, definitely share them! I'd like to feature The Girl Who Leapt Through Time in an upcoming episode, and it would be great to get some more chatter going about this title.
