Will he fall for the beautiful and popular Morishima, mischievous childhood friend Kaoru, shy and timid underclassman Sae, dependable class president Tsukasa, hardworking underclassman Ai or his gluttonous childhood friend Rihoko?

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.
Both true tears and amagami SS have the atmosphere of love/romance/drama, beautiful in art and music, you will love both of them, believe me
What can I say, both of these have similar animation styles and involve a male lead that has difficulties expressing themselves to particular love interest. Both involve love polygons to speak.
Amagami SS and True Tears feature a strong romantic aspect and focuses on a male lead that is unsecure in dealing with several female leads. Both shows have similar artwork. If there is one thing that makes these shows even more similar is the presence of love triangles in True Tears or love polygons in Amagami SS. The difference is in plot, while Amagami SS adopts an omnibus format, True Tears keeps up its linear format. If you enjoyed one you will like the other one as well.
Kaede is a devoted high school student who lives with her adopted brother Rin. She holds a quiet confidence that one day, when Rin finally starts showing interest in sex, he will make the obvious choice and turn to his loving sister. But what Kaede wasn’t counting on was the lords of heaven and hell coming to Earth, wanting Rin to mate with their nubile daughters! Rin, like any teenager would, takes full advantage of his newly acquired harem; but how long can he keep up his carefree, boxed-lunches-on-the-rooftop lifestyle, as the horde of girls on his tail grows?
Both Amagami SS and Shuffle! revolve around one boy being surrounded by several girls who have a (romantic) interest in them.
Both are a well-balanced mix of romance and funny moments, as well as really good music.
Shuffle however has it's share of fantasy (a litlle magic here and there) whereas Amagami SS does not.
I was once on this site too looking for the same exact thing. Then I cam across, shuffle. Truly the 2nd best Anime Romance I have ever seen, it has it's cliche moments that Amagami SS had and it's completely enjoyable.
Although I would highly recommend to to a more, "Mature" viewer since it's a bit more 'revealing' than Amagami SS!
Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…
Senjogahara(the gf of the main guy in AMS) looks like the main girl in Amag SS. Their personalitites seem similar too. They both center around one boy with girls around them. Amagami SS seems to be more romance where AMS has romance but has lots of other stuff like supernatural stuff.
There is nothing more sad and pleasant than love in its various forms, and a group of high school students will discover them in this melancholy series. The focus is on Kanzaki Kyoichi, an artist and a dreamer at heart, and Nitta Chiharu, a track star and a childhood friend of Kyoichi's. From spring to summer to fall to winter, love will grow and fade, and grow again
While Boys Be is more a set of stories about multiple, seperate characters which manage to vaguely intersect, Amagami SS has fewer characters, and opts for more of a 'what-if' setup. Boys Be punctuates things with some heart-wrenching moments, while Amagami introduces humor to keep things from getting too heavy. These are really the only two major differences between the two, and the way the each story is told is quite similar -- a series of romantic tales of boy-meets-girl. If one appeals to you, I think it likely the other will as well, as long as you keep in mind the serious/humorous lean each takes.
Ayumi, Kei, Koyoi, Rika and Nao are five middle school friends whose hot topic of conversation is, as always, love. Ayumi dreams of having a boy confess to her and can't understand the idea that receiving unwanted confessions can be troublesome. She even believes that she will happily accept any guy who approaches her - that is, until she receives a love letter from Misao, a large, delinquent high school boy whose very presence makes small children cry! Not wanting to date him but too scared to reject him, Ayumi has no idea what to do, especially when Misao, now nicknamed Beast-kun by the girls, begins following her to and from school. To make matters worse, Ayumi then falls for Mamoru, a boy in her class who is Beast-kun's brother! With plenty of experiences in life and love left ahead, will the girls retain their naive beliefs, or is it time to shake off that brother complex and realize that appearances aren't everything?
Both series focuses on different characters, but with Amagami SS it focuses on one character for about 6 episodes before moving onto the next which i personally think is better as i always prefer one characters story and want more of it but with Hatsukoi Limited it focuses on one but still continues to show their story in others but without as much detail :')
