If you liked the Candy Boy anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
After her grandmother dies, thirteen year-old Kana Nakamachi runs away from home convinced her absent parents will sell her. She tries to find a job, but with nowhere willing to hire a girl of her age without parental consent, she is back at square one. Then, to make matters worse, a young girl called Yume crashes her bicycle into Kana and knocks her unconscious! Following this chance encounter, Kana learns of a job vacancy at the newspaper company that Yume works for and quickly applies. Now Kana has secured herself a live-in job delivering newspapers along with her new co-workers: lively Yume; quiet Yuki; drunken and perverted Haruka; money-hungry Hinata; and grade school deputy manager, Saki. From memorizing her paper route to learning how to ride a bicycle to fixing her terrifying smile, Kana’s new life has only just begun.
While both plots seem to have nothing to do with each other the characters are very interesting and tend to make you laugh at weird situations they are in. Both anime have shoujo-ai tones but Candy Boy takes it much more serious than Kanamemo. If you liked one check out the other as they are both wonderful stories that will make you go awww.
Hazumu is a shy and quiet boy who loves flowers and is forced to rely on his tomboy childhood friend Tomari as a bodyguard. Yasuna is the prettiest girl in school but she avoids men like the plague… until she meets Hazumu. Encouraged, he confesses his love; heartbroken, he heads for the mountains to be with his flowers. As if Hazumu’s troubles aren’t enough, his day is further ruined when an alien ship accidentally kills him. Luckily, alien technology exists that can revive him, but not without a price: Hazumu returns from the dead, but in the form of… a cute girl?!
Both Kasimasi and Candy Boy are lighthearted and comedic shows, with pretty animation and pleasing character designs. They take place in a high school environment and have heavy undertones of a shoujo-ai love triangle.
Valentine's Day is approaching, and young Mami-san is apprehensive. She wants to give chocolates to her crush, Ishida, but can't seem to build up the nerve to do so. Luckily for her, she might have a solution: magical chocolates, given by a witch who seems to vanish into thin air, supposedly will grant the holder the love they desire! But will it work for Ishida?
You should watch both Magical Chocolate and Candy Boy because both have a sweet in the title! ^_^ But beyond that reason, both are adorable, enjoyable little mini-OVAs dealing with the confusion and awkwardness of young love.
For the young women at the Lillian private school for girls, nothing is more prestigious than Rosa Sinensis, Rosa Gigantea, and Rosa Foetida, the beautiful and talented women who head the student council. When a young girl named Yumi's path is intertwined with Sachiko, a successor to the council, things will never be the same for the both of them. Maria-sama ga Miteru is a quiet tale of forbidden romance, friendship, and the everyday life of a school girl.
Both Candy Boy and Maria-sama ga Miteru are soft-spoken anime about girls in school, with pleasant shoujo-ai themes. Each also has beautiful animation and a quiet, peaceful atmosphere (in some scenes, at least).
Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, and all of the girls of Sakakino High are excited - many over the idea of giving some homemade chocolates to Makoto! Sekai gets help with her creations, Kotonoha works hard at making some treats of her own, and many others join in the fun as well. Will Taisuke get the attention he craves? And with so many advances coming his way, will Makoto be able to survive the Valentine's Day attention?
Both Candy Boy and Valentine Days are lighthearted, short, romance based specials, and, with little plot (though definitely a lot more in Candy Boy) to speak of, provide little purpose other than a quick, cute, and amusing watch. Though Candy Boy has more substance, and Valentine Days makes less sense without School Days, check out one if you liked the other.
