Throughout the vast universe, nothing is more beautiful than the love shared between two intertwined souls. This alluring existence called love breathes life to the human soul and gives it limitless potential and hope. It is this very existence of love that resides within Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Iro Na and Ai Yori Aoshi.

These two series tell the wondrous tale of two characters whose love destiny has woven yet fate has forbidden. The stories depict the power of love through the intertwining actions of the azure hand of destiny and the crimson strings of fate. Ultimately, both show how the love and the resolve that forms with it can challenge even reality's harshest embodiment. Given these tales of true love, Ai Yori Aoshi and Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Iro Na make a wonderful blend to those who have witnessed one or the other.

Angel Tales

Angel Tales

Goro Mutsumi is a young man that never seems to catch a break; he has a hard time keeping a job, has horrible luck, and continuously finds himself in bad circumstances.  However, things change one day when he comes home - having been fired yet again - and finds three young girls sitting in his apartment. They're the reincarnated angels of his deceased pets, and they're here to turn his luck around given how well he treated them in their past lives. While the idea sounds like a godsend, things don't go quite according to plan; the angels tend to cause more harm than good, and twelve altogether end up joining Goro's cramped household! In addition to learning how to co-exist with his newly acquired roommates, Goro must also defend them and himself against four sacred beasts who are after him for mysterious reasons. One thing's for certain: Goro's life will never be the same!

Angel's Tail and Ai Yori Aoshi are both harem comedies, with one big difference. In AYA, Kaoru has no doubt as to who he's going to be with. In AT, there's a lot of flirting, but nothing serious actually developes.

Clannad

Clannad

Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...

Both Clannad and Ai Yori Aioshi are about a young couple who progress slowly in their relationship. I noticed that in both series the girl is someone who tries her best and doesn't want to trouble anyone but also tends to be a bit of a crybaby. The boy is a person with a dark past until that girls comes brighten up his life so he cares a lot about her. He has a lot of girls hanging around him which causes comical situations but the romantic thread in the story is quite serious.

Final Approach

  • TV (13 eps x 12 min)

In present-day Japan, a rising decline in the birth rate has prompted the government to intervene, thus forming the R.T.P. committee whose goal is to promote arranged marriages. Due to the sensitive nature of the issue, however, a test run was deemed mandatory, and young Ryo Mizuhara (chosen by the world's best supercomputer) was selected as the test subject, much to his own dismay. With the megalomaniac Shizuka Masuda appointed as his fiancee and secret agents in his face at every turn, can Ryo manage to save his sanity, let alone his bachelor lifestyle of the past?

Rich familys always have rules that the common people don't. If you like Ai Yori Aoshi, you will proboably like Hana Yori Dango too. The story is a little different, and at some points make you gasp for breath, while at others make you feel like you can really connect with the characters, which i think is what connects the two animes.
