Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!

Angel Beats is fast paced, Boku wa is slower. Both have the same sort of feel, with an isolated group of friends spending a lot of time together, although Boku wa... doesn't have quiet the same back-story that Angel Beats has. Both are more club-activity based, and we see next to nothing of school life itself. While Angel Beats seems to be driven and focused, Boku wa... is calmer and more free flowing anime. Both focus on club activities and a sort of school life, but Angel Beats has more of a supernatural role to it (which is necessary and set up quiet well).

Highschool of the Dead

Highschool of the Dead

When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...

Angel Beats is very reminicent of Highschool of the Dead in terms of an extra-ordinary highschool, focused on a small group of students working to stay "alive" (through the use of planning and assult).

The warm feeling you get from the friendships formed in a world of chaos is very similar in both, as well as the beautiful art either studio has to offer.

ef - a tale of memories

ef - a tale of memories

In a high school setting, there are many people whose stories must be told: Hiro, an aspiring manga artist whose view of the world is "missing a certain color," according to himself; his childhood friend Kei, who is vying for his attention; Kyosuke, a photographer and cameraman who seeks to capture true emotion in his work; the ever-cheerful Miyako, who meets Hiro by chance and immediately becomes attached to him; the gentle Renji, unsure of his aspirations to become a novelist; and Kei's mysterious and quiet sister Chihiro, who seems to be a different person every day. As time passes and they interact with one another more, their paths increasingly intertwine as shades of regrettable pasts emerge.

Both animes have eye popping beautiful animation with bright colors. For some reason Ef- Tale of Memories reminded me a little bit of Angel Beats! Even though the storylines aren't actually the same, I still recommend any one who likes Angel Beats to watch Ef because they both have beautiful stories that will tug at your heart strings.

Heartfelt stories involving a war, conflict, and Romeo and Juliet esque love yet conquering all opposing forces toward a future of true peace. I would describe more of why but that would involve spoilers.

This is kiiind of a stretch, but I think these two series make a good pair. They're both centered around a group of high schoolers in a crazy, supernatural situation, and switch between comedy, romantic drama and crazy fights. I think Angel Beats is a bit less obtuse than Star Driver--Star Driver probably needs to be watched more than once to really get it--but they still both have a similar "feel" while you're watching them. It's worth giving one a try if you liked the other!
