Da Capo

Da Capo

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 are full of cliches, both have their harems, both have an infatuation with their sisters, both have an almost supernatural element that seems to serve no real purpose

Though Da Capo changes moods in the second half of the first season,  they are both just fun comedic harem series that does some attempt to add enough drama and romance to not make you feel like your watching a completely stupid ecchi show.

TropicalMist TropicalMist says...

I personally like Da Capo more than Akane-Iro... but I still feel that they`re both very similar.

Both are harems with protaganist who`s not exactly the best at realizing how he feels and who he likes.  They also include two main girls... one who`s the sister and one who seemingly doesn`t know the guy as well and spends the majority of the anime trying to please him and get to know him.

Although Akane-Iro doesn`t develop their characters as well, they`re both very much worth the watch since I find them both really reasonable in why they end up with the girl that they do =)

Da Capo and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka have the same thing in common: they are both harem ecchi series revolving around the high school drama of a boy who cannot make up his mind about the person that he likes.  Not to mention the fact that both of the series ends up with one of the protagonist’s infatuations being his sister!  The comedy aspect is more heartfelt in Akane-Iro, although Da Capo enjoys it’s fair share of awkward experiences and downright ridiculous antics too.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

both Da Capo and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka feature an incest theme, love relationship between siblings, even though the siblings are not blood related in both shows. Both of them are romantic comedies, which feature some ecchi aspects and harem themes. While Da Capo changes from a funny comedy to a sorrowful drama, Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka maintains its humour until the end. Still if you liked one of this show then check the other one as well.

Aburi Aburi says...

Akane-Iro ni somaru Saka and Toradora are both Stories that start off with a scary male protoganist with over-inflated rumers making him more scary. In both shows the male leads are nothing like the rumors.

Both shows also have simmilar comedy senses and are both have simmilar visual styles.

In short, they are different enough to be individual shows but simmilar enough that if you like one you'll like the other.

Shadow06 Shadow06 says...

Both anime have a scary male protagonist, which then turns out to be the exact opposite of what the rumors say. Also within both there is a annoying little sister character type which is bossier than the protagonist.

SunshinexKite SunshinexKite says...

Both animes male protagonist has had rumors spread around that hes a scary guy but isnt really scary. Both have two girls to choose over; the girl hes loved for awhile or the new girl. Also, coiincidently, Yuuhi and Taiga are voiced by the same seiyuu,  their personalitys are alot alike, and they are wealthy.

Doomoo Doomoo says...

They have a similar setup and characters and the female lead in both are voiced by the same voice actor. The two female leads are extremely similar in many ways and just the general 'feel' of these anime are very close.  I am sure that if you liked one you will like the other.

Omurqi Omurqi says...

Midori Days and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka both are ecchi/comedy/romance anime. They both have a male lead who is feared by many because of his delinquent image, while he is actually a fair and kind person, despite being a super-strong fighter. Both main characters eventually get to make up their mind about what they're really wishing for in a similar way (a little bit beyond the usual "take a pick" dicision). Also, both series have very similar animation, adding to the feel these shows have. If you liked one, I'm sure you'll enjoy the other as well.

Shadow06 Shadow06 says...

With both anime you hava a rumored male protagonist, who lacks luck in dealing with girls, the difference is that in akane-iro ni somaru saka the boy is still caught within them while midori days is caught but by only one girl.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

If you have the hots for some delinquent male leads Midori Days and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka are the shows for you.  These loveable guys with a bad boy image get captivated by the females around them in a hilarious romp through high school life.  While Akane-Iro is much more realistic, Midori Days still maintains the comedic feel.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

If you liked one then you'll probably like the other because the male lead in both titles are something of a bad boy and are rather feared by everyone else.  As well as the fact that in both series the male lead has a hard time deciding what he really wants.

Both this anime shows that the main character were been loved by their sister, and indecisive in this complex r/s. If you like Akane-Iro ni somaru Saka shuffle would defintely make a great anime for you.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Harem it up in a wonderfully comedic high school setting with Shuffle and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka.  While these protagonists are going crazy trying to make up their minds the girls are all on the prowl trying to snag him.  Also, if you have a fascination with the sister-complex these two shows might just be the ones you are looking for.

RedCrossRobbery RedCrossRobbery says...

Harem comedies, that end on mature notes? Sister archetype, and best childhood friend archetype? These two titles carry about in very similar matters.

True Tears

True Tears

Shinichiro Nakagami is an everyday high school student, with the exception of having his beautiful and athletic childhood friend Hiromi Yuasa living in his household after the death of her parents. Unfortunately, their relationship is cold at best - Shinichiro can tell that she is suffering, but she acts coldly and distant from her foster family and so he is unable to help ease her sadness. His family is also forcing him to practice a traditional Japanese dance that does not interest him, adding to his frustration. On top of that, he is cursed to misfortune by another girl in school, the eccentric Noe Isurugi. Shinichiro juggles all of these problems on a day-to-day basis as he learns about love and the sadness of those around him.

worosei worosei says...

A little tentative, but both airing in the same year, they are short school romance series which boils down to a love triangle with sister/brother/enigmatic girl

Whilst True Tears is far deeper and has drama elements, the infectious personality of Noe feels similar to the light-heartedness of Akaneiro. 

Drasticc Drasticc says...

I would recommend this anime for the simple fact that both anime fit perfectly in the harem genre.  Though some attributes of both of the shows may seem more of a cliche both of them have surprising turn of events.  The protagonist are very similar in look and artistry style. 

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

If you are looking for a good, short school type of romance True Tears and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka are pretty fine picks.  The surprising events taking place in each of these series adds an extra element into the mix while the love triangles are similar in nature taking on a semi brother to sister to another girl type of drama.
