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.

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.

We all like some totally useless humour from time to time!

Well, you've got it, in angel beats and nurse witch komugi. Lots of yelling, random putting together of anything, and characters that make no sense, and do silly things!

But thats what we love about them right? Two very cute anime's, with sime funny stories, that are fun, random, but not too hard to follow!

Bokurano

Bokurano

When a group of children discover a strange cave at the beach, their lives are forever changed. Inside they find a hide out filled with computers and a man named Kokopelli who gives them a curious offer: to participate in a special game in which they save Earth from fifteen giant monsters. To defeat the invaders, he will give them a powerful mecha of black armor. The children eagerly sign the contract, name their new weapon Zearth, and must now take turns to pilot it; but the 'game' is in fact all too real and the consequences of battle become the stuff of nightmares. With no option to cancel the contract, is there any way to stop the game before it is too late for all of them?

Each series is it's own but when it comes to groups of kids fighting for what they believe in, each are one in the same. Angel Beats also goes into the life of almost all of the main characters. Each having a struggle within themselves. You get to know the individuals just like Bokurano. The only difference is the way the characters "transition". You Can sort of say that their character's destinies are sort "reversed" in a sense.
