At Yamaboshi High, joining a school club is required, so when Himeko, Iori, Taichi, Yoshifumi and Yui couldn't find a suitable choice, they decided to create their own: the School Culture Club! Together, they pass the days meeting and coming up with topics for the group's newspaper – that is, until one day, Yoshifumi and Yui proclaim that they switched bodies last night! Soon after, all five members of the gang find themselves inadvertently swapping at random, with no end in sight. What, or who, caused this supernatural phenomenon?
While the premise of Angel Beats! and Kokoro Connect are different, they both are driven by characters building relationships with each other and working out their past traumas. This is especially true during the first arc of Kokoro Connect. Angel Beats! has more characters and is ultimately a heavier drama than Kokoro Connect, but they have a similar feel to them in terms of character interaction. If you like one, the other is worth checking out.
I totally agree that Angel Beats and Kokoro Connect will attract the same kinds of people. Both shows are about helping people with past traumas. While Angel Beats is a little more extreme than Kokoro Connect (in certain aspects which I won't spoil) both Anime can be easily contrasted.
So if you have enjoyed either Anime, but you haven't seen the respective, then pull up a chair, lay on your bed, or wherver makes you comfortable. Because you're going to be there for awhile. Trust me!
Fifteen-year-old Tsukune Aono is average in every way; he has no hobbies, less-than-stellar grades and he's even flunked his high school entrance exam. His parents have managed to enroll him in a school, but it's no ordinary school! Tsukune will be attending the Youkai Academy, a place where monsters learn how to co-exist with humans! As the werewolves, vampires, witches and other monsters are required to retain their human forms, Tsukune - the lone human - is able to avoid their bloodthirsty gazes. However, he quickly attracts the attention of a number of devilish beauties including the vampire Moka, a busty succubus and even a young witch! It seems Tsukune's average life isn't so average anymore!
A anime about after you die not going to hell or heaven. It is inbetween. And think of you watch this you will like it.
The reason I am recommending Rosario To Vampire to you guys is because it almost has the same setting, high school, drama, people fighting against other people/things, main character gets in love with other characters, and so on and so on
Angels are genteel and graceful messengers from Heaven, right? Wrong! Sakura Kusakabe will create an invention that inadvertently ruins the future for womankind and thus, angels from the future have arrived to do the only reasonable thing: assassinate him! Fortunately for Sakura, one of them, Dokuro-chan, takes a liking to him but her intentions to protect him prove downright lethal. When Sakura’s not dodging her spiked bat Excalibolg, he’s fighting for his life on river escapades. And when he’s not quick enough, Dokuro-chan’s catchy incantation brings him back to life! Bludgeoning and blood splatters aside, can Dokuro-chan save the one she loves without damaging the future?
Both of these anime have to do with an evil-ish angel, cool weapons, similar random humor with people talking quickly randomly spurting out absurd things that you cant help but laugh at. Also again with the comedy factor is that both take death very lightly and use it as a comic relief rather than sadness because when the characters die (usually in a comical/spaztic way) they're almost immediatly brought back to life as if nothing happened. Plus, I'm not sure why, maybe it's the energetic persona, but Dokuro and Yuri remind me a lot of eachother, except Dokuro's less serious and way more sadistic. While they're not overly similar, I think either a die-hard fan of Dokuro's or Yuri's energy would like the other and anybody who likes the comedy in either. The main difference being Angel Beats! is more serious (most of the time, not always) and less perverted.
Everyone around Kousaka seems to adore cats, but due to his allergies the teen can’t stand them. So when he wakes up one day and can hear what every feline is saying, Kousaka is annoyed to say the least. His new “gift,” it seems, is the result of accidentally breaking an enshrined statue of a cat; and what’s worse, Kousaka must atone for his sin and appease the vengeful spirit by aiding one hundred kitties-in-distress, or become a furry feline himself! Now, amidst helping various cats with mundane and trivial issues, Kousaka must try to dispel the jinx and attempt to salvage his self-respect – not to mention his love life - along the way.
Both Junpei in Nyan Koi! and Yuzuru in Angel Beats! are pulled into a situtation that they don't enjoy or fully understand and forced to go along for the ride. For both of them, failure means losing the life that they have now, but somehow humor finds a way into the shows. Kind of surprising, really.
