The air and nature of these anime reminded me of the other. Both have an interesting plot and are a good watch, if you find anime that go at a slow pace and consist more of dialogue than other things, enjoyable.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia

Teiichi Niiya is a first year middle-school student at Seikyou Private Academy, an institution known for mysterious occurrences.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia has the same feel as Bakemonogatari. The characters are similar, they both have to do with the super natural and they both have some comedy elements mixed in.

These are two of my favorite harem comedies.  One is a classic and one modern, but both had excellent animation for their time.  Comedy and ecchi that stays fresh should appeal to fans of either series.



Michiru has an unusual ability: she can see a dark ring around a person's neck that signifies their time to die. However, she suppressed her powers once she "saw" the deaths of her parents – until now. After accidentally seeing rings around the necks of two boys in her school, it seems that Michiru's powers are back for good. The two are zombies who are working for the secret loan office known as Zombie-Loan, and they need Michiru's help to find other zombies – those with dark black rings around their necks. Though Michiru initially refuses, due to a series of events it seems she has no choice but to comply...

Idk why but i got similar feeling watching these two anime... Except for the romance... there's less of it in Z-Loan. Anyways both anime worth watching)
