New Makoto quickly becomes fed up with his host body's situation, as the boy doesn't have any friends, his family life is in shambles, and his mere presence makes everyone around him nervous.

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.

Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

Angel Beats and Eden of the East both revolve around young men who have lost their memories, and their pursuit to regain them.

Princess Tutu

Princess Tutu

Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?

These two shows are pretty different in terms of genre, but they both feature comedy mixed with drama, and both ask questions about fate and feature characters loaded down by their pasts and a couple that might not be able to be together because of their nature. In the end I think these two shows come to two very different conclusions about the questions they pose, but they're still interesting to compare, so I think fans of one will enjoy the other if they give it a try.
