The basic themes within Kare Kano are almost exactly the same as in Boys Be, as far as love and relationships. They both also have a bunch of high school kids as characters. Fans of Boys Be should enjoy Kare Kano.
I personally liked Boys Be much more than Kare Kano, but I also think it's obvious why the two are good recommendations for each other. Simply put, they are two relationship series that deal with REAL relationship issues and insecurities, in a unique way. Boys Be is much more focused on positive changes with a group of friends, whereas Kare Kano is focused on one person.
Diamond dust: when the moisture in the air freezes on a chilly day, the air seems to sparkle and shimmer. It is said that to see the diamond dust in its glory means that lovers will stay together forever, friendships will flourish, and dreams will be realized. Kita-he ~Diamond Dust Drops~ tells the stories of several groups of friends and lovers as they struggle to stay together, accomplish their dreams, and anything in between, all revolving around the tale of the diamond dust.
Boys Be and Kita e are about stories with separate characters. They combine real life with situations that no one wants to be in, but they also provide the positive outlooks that you need to get through anything upsetting that is related to romance. Grab a box of tissues, as these anime will tear your heart.

The biggest misunderstanding of all was when Ichitaka's childhood friend, Itsuki came to live in Ichitaka's home all the way from the United States...
Almost similar in every aspect, these two romance series are terrific to view. Though not necessarily ground breaking in anyway I"S Pure and Boys Be managed to grab hold of my attention from the beginning to end. The episodes lengths might be shorter then most anime found in this genre but the content itself is worth the watch. These two anime are the perfect examples of how high school romances should play out. Almost as if cut from the same cloth, I"S Pure and Boys Be does wonders at presenting the difficult choices we all must face one day. Whether it is the dream we longed to reach or the feelings found within our hearts. You'll find the both answers are correct.
They are romanced based, and in a way they both come out with happy endings. The only difference is Boys Be is more of a series of stories, where as I"s is just set around one main person.
