Synopsis:

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

Kokoro Connect

Kokoro Connect

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!

Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya

Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya
  • Web (25 eps x 4 min)
  • 2009

Join Haruhi, Yuki, Kyon, Mikuru, Itsuki, and the rest of the gang in their all-new adventures. From creepy dreams, dodge ball games, quiz shows, and cosplay contests, the excitement never stops! Can Kyon, the only normal student of the SOS Brigade, make sense of all these odd occurrences, attempt to avoid them, and hopefully survive them with his sanity intact? With the adventure and mystery-seeking Haruhi in his way, along with aliens, espers, and time travelers, he certainly has his doubts!

When you think of the plot series of Angel Beats some how it just translates right away into The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.  The whole entire feeling to the show is similar with a group of kids in a school setting fights against supernatural phenomenon.  The lead heroines are spitting images of each other putting on a gutsy attitude while leading the protagonist around in a world completely different from what they are used to.

FF3710Freak

The characters are just so alike! Haruhi and Yuri are both hyperactive female characters who run a group (SSS-Yuri, SOS-Haruhi) and they both manage to drag the main male character down with them. (Kyon and Otonashi). They also both issue punishments if the member of their group fail the mission.

Kyon and Otonashi are both cynical and always questioning everything their 'leader' does.

Lots of the other characters have similar traits as well, they're both set in a Highschool scene, and generally not in the actual lessons. They both have a supernatural feel to them.

If you liked one you'll almost definatly like the other! (But watching both make sure you have a tissue on hand for the tears of laughter!)

Air Gear

Air Gear

What if roller skates had high power engines that enabled the skaters to do stunning new tricks that defy gravity? What if you saw a beautiful girl effortlessly glide through the air with them? To Ikki, this is reason enough to secretly borrow a pair of Air Treck skates, and step into an underground world filled with gang fights and strange customs. Enamored with high-flying stunts and the flirtatious Simca, Ikki forms an Air Treck gang of his own and starts a life of fighting rival gangs and flying over the rooftops, chasing the girl always one kick ahead of him.

Each show involves a male protagonist that, without realizing, quickly becomes one of the most important person on their society. Each is faced with a choice that could change the future of those around him significantly. While each show uses compedy in it's storytelling Air Gear has more of an ecchi feel while Angel Beats is more serious.

They're the reincarnated angels of his deceased pets, and they're here to turn his luck around given how well he treated them in their past lives. While the idea sounds like a godsend, things don't go quite according to plan; the angels tend to cause more harm than good, and twelve altogether end up joining Goro's cramped household! In addition to learning how to co-exist with his newly acquired roommates, Goro must also defend them and himself against four sacred beasts who are after him for mysterious reasons. One thing's for certain: Goro's life will never be the same!

Both animes brought tears to my eyes, and I loved them very much!

Its the good kind of sad feeling u get, when u watch an anime that has sadness yet greatness to it.

The have the same kind of atmosphere.

Both Angel Tales and Angel Beat is about the afterlife.

If you loved one, you will surly love the other one too.

Bakemonogatari and Angel Beats! Are really similiar, both of them contain contrast between Funny things and something serious in episodes. The main protoganist of the Bakemonogatari and Angel Beats! is voiced by same person. So I higly recommend to watch it.
