Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
Air TV and FLCL are very similar in some respects but very different in others as well. The animation is extremely well done in both series and both have a laid back, almost dreamy atmosphere. While FLCL is undoubtably a more high energy anime than AIR, I think that others will agree the character interactions and deep, sometimes strange, moral situations are similar in both these series.
Saga is an ordinary girl who lives her life by planning everything ahead of time. Unfortunately, having a waffle-loving Snow fairy called Sugar follow her home was not a part of these plans! Together with apprentice fairies Salt and Pepper, Sugar must find the 'twinkles' that will make their magical flowers blossom, thus turning them into fully fledged season fairies. The trouble is, none of them actually knows what a 'twinkle' is! And so, with help from Saga and other friends, the trio begin their search, whilst having fun and perfecting their magic along the way.
I recommend Snow Fairy Sugar because, like Air, it has a great story that leads the viewer down a road of laughs and sadness. Although both series are different in many ways, they still share similarities between them such as the theme of ordeals in friendships. Whether for good or for bad, Snow Fairy Sugar is guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye.
As scientists explore a new form of energy on the moon, an experiment gone awry brings the lead scientist's life crashing to a halt. In a freak accident, his daughter Kurau is engulfed in the energy and becomes the mysterious entity known as Rynax; a pairing that endows her with new superhuman abilities and a new personality. Years later, Kurau is using her unique powers to make a living as a bounty hunter, but the corporation has not given up on this new form of energy and will stop at nothing to find her. Now, Kurau must protect not only herself, but her Rynax "pair" named Christmas, a soul mate more precious to her than life itself. Can Kurau and Christmas find peace for themselves and the Rynax?
Despite being quite different if taken at face value, both Kurau and Air have one major thing in common: the incredible story that focuses on what it means to be family. I recommend that if you like one, you will like the other, as the stories will really tug at your heart.
On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?
Both Air and Da Capo are harem in genre. They also both deal with issues one would have to face in a high school setting. In each series the main hero is trying to find out what is going on around him and how everything impacts the main heroine, the one that he loves. He also helps the other girls that like him.
Art college: cradle of romance, home of bittersweet moments. Takemoto is struggling to find his direction in life, while his roommates Morita and Mayama are moving confidently - or recklessly - towards their goals. Enter Hagu-chan, the childlike and beautiful prodigy whom everyone admires; and thus the love triangles begin. Together, the trio explore the pain of first love, the trials of romantic conflict, and our loyalty to those annoying people who happen to be our closest friends.
The funny times, the sad times, the happy times, the angry times; these series go though them all. You go along with the characters in both Air and Honey and Clover in their search. Whether it be for a girl with wings or the reason to paint, you're right there with them.
