Each of these have a serious side, but know how to have fun. Be it gunfights, crazy antics or ridiculous arguments between the cast, both make for a great time. The Trigun movie has more of a classic anime feel while Angel Beats! feels more like a modern anime.

Both shows have a video game version. While Angel Beats! started as a game, the Phantom anime is an adaptation of the Phantom game. Also both shows have action and moé girls. If you like one you should watch the other.

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 shows come from the same studio and are excellent at stimulating emotions within you.  Hiromi and Kanade are also both similar in how they care for the main character but they have difficulty in expressing their true feelings.  Even though the plots are different, it is likely you will experience the same feelings for both of these great shows.

The storyline of both sola and Angel Beats! rely on male protagonists with memory issues and powerful female leads with hidden agendas. Add to that the mystery and death which surrounds both anime and you have a winning combination for why if you like one you will like the other.

If you liked Colorful, you may enjoy Angel Beats! and vice versa because both shows deal with death and reincarnation.

However, Angel Beats! focuses more on fulfilling ones unfulfilled dream wihile Colorful deals with correcting the mistakes in the former life.
