Two sisters sharing a close bond, united against some form of adversity -- this is a common thread that runs through Mokke and Binbou Shimai Monogatari. The adversity can be either supernatural or economic, but its constant pressure reveals the sisters' mutual love. Moreover, the intimate way their relationship is depicted is similar in both anime.

Cetonis Cetonis says...

Mokke and Binbou Shimai Monogatari are each warm slice-of-life tales about a pair of sisters, and their bonds with one another. Not much more to say; though Mokke has a supernatural element instead of Binbou's financial issues, neither factor really dominates its respective anime enough to keep these two from feeling like a pair.

Szwagier Szwagier says...

Both shows are slow-paced, slice of life stories about  2 sisters, that for one reason or another are separated from their parents (death/abandonment in BSM , supernatural abilities in Mokke). Due to that predicament their bond is really strong, and together they try to face various problems ( financial in BSM , supernatural in Mokke).

Of course there are also differences. Mokke "sweet scenes" are somehow tamed in comparison to BSM . Also the first one is a story about diligent older sister and cheerful/energetic younger sister. The latter have those roles reversed.

Still - if you enjoy slow, relaxing anime featuring growing up girls, you will enjoy both of those shows.

Asatte no Houkou

Asatte no Houkou

Karada is an elementary school student who acts mature for her age, and asks that people treat her like an adult. While praying at a wishing stone (negai ishi), she meets an older girl named Shouko. Shouko had moved to this small town to start a new life, but the same day she meets Karada, she encounters her brother, Hiro. Tension builds as Shouko and Hiro reflect on their past relationship while sending Karada home alone, and by the end of the day, both Shouko and Karada end up at the wishing stone hoping for change. Karada wishes to become an adult, while Shouko wishes for things to go back as they were in the past. That night under the bright moon, the wishing stone grants their wish, and an unbelievable transformation occurs: Shouko becomes a child and Karada becomes an adult. Now the two girls must struggle with their new bodies while finding a way to return back to what they once were.

Binbou Shimai Monogatari and Asatte no Houkou both give off a definite "slice of life" feel. It's given in their style of music and even the art. Both animes use soft pastel-like colours in their back splashes, and the story is mainly dialogue-driven. Asatte no Houkou has beautiful and unique character designs, and there's much depth to be found in the main cast.

Like Karada in her adult guise, the two sisters in "Binbou Shimai Monogatari are forced into a situation where they have to make decisions, based on their limited experience, which children shouldn't have to make. By contrast though the two sisters Kyo and Aso always have each other. Both anime tug at the heart but ultimately don't leave sadness at the end - only hope for a happy future.

But the bachelor lifestyle is soon to change when young Yuzuyu enters the picture. This five-year-old cutie has been abandoned by her mother, and is to be taken care of by none other than Kippei! Unfortunately for the both of them, Kippei has no experience raising a child, so the learning curve will be quite steep...

These series are both about love and family, taking care of eachother and sweet emotions. There are similar problems to overcome, and the feelings conveyed by the main characters are very much alike. These series are so similar, yet different that if you liked one you will surely love the other too ^^

Binbou Shimai Monogatari and Aishiteruze Baby are about taking care of family and being able to take care of each other even in difficult situations.  These two shows feature real life problems and how each character are able to overcome them.  The animation in each is also really well done.

Minami-ke

Minami-ke

Meet the Minami sisters, three girls living on their own and doing their best to make it through life's little snags and adventures. Kana, the middle sister, has far more energy than common sense; Chiaki, the youngest, is more reserved, but her sharp tongue and devious mind often cause trouble for others; and Haruka, the eldest, acts like a mother to the other two, is beautiful and kind, but has a fearsome stern streak. Together, no obstacle can stand in their way, be it school, romance, or even cooking.

Both series involve sisters which have to go through everyday life. Even though they don't have any parents, they are still happy and continue on through many fun and sometimes strange situations. Even if somthing sad happens they can continue on with the help of their sister(s).

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Trying to get along with your sister is not the easiest thing in the world, but if that is all the family you have then it is that more important.  Minami-ke and Binbou Shimai Monogatari take on just this situation with sisters trying to rely on one another with the deaths of their parents.  These series are all about supporting the ones you love no matter what happens.

With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?

The two share a lot in common, in the aspect of everyday people dealing with everyday problems in the best way they can. Ryuji has a lot in common with the sisters Kyo and Asu, though both dealt with their situation in different ways I think that both shows present a positive message on how to deal with untoward circumstances. As a further warning, you will probably not like Binbou Shimai if you simply enjoyed Toradora due to the comedy (and vice versa).
