Yukino and Kanade are twin sisters who now share a room at their new school in Tokyo. Ever since they were little, the pair has been exceptionally close – perhaps even a bit too close for siblings when eyes are turned away. But soon a girl named Sakuya, who often tails the two, begins to grow closer to Yukino; and after an alleged confession that she hears about, Kanade begins to get worried that something is going on behind her back. Can the three of the girls keep their relationships with each other on stable ground, or will jealousy and heartache come crashing down on them?

Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru

Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru
  • OVA (1 ep x 50 min)
  • 2005

Yori Yuki has loved his twin sister ever since he can remember. While his parents brushed it off as a child’s fantasy, he always knew it was true love; but because it is incest, taboo, a forbidden love, he did his best to eliminate those feelings. 15 years have gone by and his feelings never wavered; in fact, they have grown stronger. He’s watched his sister Iku grow up and become a beautiful woman, and now, he can no longer contain his feelings – Yori confesses. Yet even if Iku reciprocates his feelings, that doesn’t change the fact that they’re brother and sister. Can forbidden love last?

Both series are about forbidden but beautiful love (incest, yuri). Main characters have to fight for it and don’t get intimidated by others. If you liked one you will surely like the other.


Both of these anime are fluffy romantic stories about twins falling in love and the hardships they face.


Both of these series deal with forbidden love between twins. They are also short series so watching the other one doesn't take long if you want to see if it's any good.


If you want a dose of forbidden love, Candy Boy and Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru are the shows for you.  Each involve a relationship of the main characters love for each other, yet they are twins!  The trials and tribulations of trying to keep their love for each other going against all odds adds to the magic of the series.


Do you like forbidden love between twins? Or just forbidden love in general? Then you'll most likely be interested in both Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru and Candy Boy! The two short OVAs deal with a strong love between twins, which is taboo. The only difference between these two is that Candy Boy involves twin girls but I'm sure if you like one, you'll like the other.


A beautiful tale of forbidden love between two siblings is what I would like to say that both of these have in common and well at least part of it is true.  Because the story is in fact a story about the forbidden relationship that develops between two siblings which also in both cases its a relationship between twins.  Though in Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo case its a brother and sister and in Candy Boy's case it's a relationship between two sisters.  Anyways if you liked one of these then you may want to give the other a look.

Sakura Trick

Sakura Trick

Best friends Haruka and Yuu have just entered their first year at Misato West High School, a facility scheduled to be shut down in three years. The duo have been inseparable since middle school, but moving to a new school means making new friends. So together, the pair decides they’ll share something special that they won’t do with the other girls: they’ll share a passionate kiss. Now, the two, along with new companions Kotone, Shizuku, Kaede and Yuku, begin their high school days together, having plenty of fun - and sharing plenty of intimate kisses - along the way.

Both anime are about females that likes females, and they both take place in a school setting: high school for Sakura Trick and university for Candy Boy. Candy Boy is more toned down than Sakura Trick, but neither is very explicit. Fans of either would do well to check out the other one.


The relationship can be seen quite ambiguously in Candy Boy, in that it never really confirms the two main characters are a couple, however, it is certainly implied enough. The humour between Sakura Trick and Candy Boy is quite similar, if executed slightly differently.

I believe a fan of one would enjoy the other.


Both are (mostly) light-hearted slice-of-life shows with some comedy elements as well as a strong shoujo-ai presence.

While Candy Boy is much more toned down, fans of one show should take the risk to at least check out the other.


While different in their presentation of romance (being obviously taboo in Candy Boy due to the blood-relation), both shows have a tendency to induce moments of diabetic distress; scenes too sweet that you should just have a shot of insulin by your side incase you go into shock.In the case of Candy Boy it's sisterly love taken to the utmost extreme without actually crossing that border in their relationship. Sakura Trick dives right into that with one girl who is affectionate and yet so bold and perverted, and the other that can't help but blush whenever she thinks about their relationship.

Both have brilliant characters that are not the standard fanfare stereotypes of the genre, and while situations in both anime may differ, they both present extraordinarily sentimental scenes, given the focus and maturity they deserve.


Both of these series are cute shoujo-ai titles that take place in a high school setting. The romance never goes much further than kissing (which Sakura Trick has a lot of), so the series are fairly tame (no crazy ecchi). If you liked one series, you'd probably like the other.

If you like your romances short and sweet (and I do mean short, both series clock in well under the standard length), check out REC or Candy Boy. Aside from the length similarity, both are understated, and neither is about a typical anime couple (REC is about working adults, and Candy Boy is about yuri incest- surprisingly, with not a hint of ecchi in sight).


Both Candy Boy and Rec are short, sweet romantic comedies with... *Drumroll* comedy instead of ecchi, and romance instead of shyness. These two titles are a little different from your everyday romcom, and if you're looking for a short breath of fresh air, these two both fit the bill perfectly.


Candy Boy and Rec are short sweet romances.  Each having a similar type of feeling and outlook of the characters.


Both are short and sweet romances with a touch of comedy added in.  While Rec deals more with a standard romance between adults and Candy Boy is more of a yuri-incest type of thing going on but nevertheless both are a good romance animes to waste a couple of hours on.

Bright, clear animation with an easy to process, simplistic storyline. Candy Boy and Aoi Hana make this a reality. Similar subjects such as school life, shoujo-ai as well as the focus on one group of people and the relationships between them make these two go hand in hand.

(Also, ThePatches made me hungry.)


Both anime contains a lot of focus on lesbian relationships without ever delving into any raunchy territories. Aoi Hana has a much larger cast and more relationships to track, while Candy Boy is much more straightforward in that aspect.


These two are both shoujo-ai shows with a heavy focus on relationships and some drama elements as well as more light-hearted fluff.

They have a similar tone, having the same relaxed delivery and similar colour pallets.

Fans of one show should check out the other.

Sasameki Koto

Sasameki Koto

Shy, athletic Sumika is in love with her bubbly friend Ushio. However, Ushio is outwardly attracted to cute girls, something she never calls her friend-turned-admirer. Keeping her tender feelings a secret from the one she loves, Sumika continues to be Ushio’s confidante and companion, hoping that someday she can say how she feels. Whether it’s having a first kiss, cooking a meal or confiding in each other, Sumika, Ushio, Tomoe and their friends will experience the everyday joys of a quiet school life and touching romance together.

Two very sweet yuri-only romantic comedies, both full of charming characters in cute and amusing situations. Candy Boy and Sasameki Koto are both must-see series for any yuri fan(assuming you haven't watched them already), but they also make for a very good introduction to those who are new to this specific genre.


Sasameki Koto and Candy Boy both feature a protagonist pseudo-coupling which the story revolves around, companied by an annoyance of some sort, or a reason why the couple cannot be together. Both anime unfold the story of how this obstacle is overcome. They both feature comedical moments and have similar pace, which is why if you liked one you are sure to enjoy the other.


Both are slice-of-life series with comedy and romance elements in the focus. Furthermore, both are shoujo-ai shows with similar paces and fluffy atmospheres. Sasameki Koto contains more drama/angst elements, but either one is a good recommendation for the other.
