well this two animes have some similarities but also many differences.When we speak about Sasameki Koto and Blue Drop we talk about a warm shoujo-ai aspect.The difference between this two is that Blue Drop is centered more on sci-fi aspects while Sasameki Koto is concentrated on romance aspect.Even though there are many differences this two are very much alike in what i mentioned above so my guess is that if you like one of this two animes you will definitely like the other one as well.

Might seem like a strange rec, and they are very different anime. But both feature drama, something to do with space and "aliens". Blue Drop features some comedy and a bit more slice-of-life, as well as shoujo-ai (yuri). While Iro features more romance and drama. Both are good anime, and if you enjoyed one, you might enjoy the other as well.
