Although today Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari live far apart due to a family move shortly after elementary school, they were once two shy young students brought together by their shared differences from their peers. It is because of this that the two built a bond of closeness between them that still survives through their continued correspondence, even over such a distance. Secretly they both fear the loss of this bond over time, and for this reason they arrange a meeting between just the two of them. The journeys both of them take in their minds and in their lives create an atmosphere of intense emotional upheaval, but also a sense of peace. It is a twist of fate and a series of decisions that put the two in place to carry what they choose of their pasts into the future they will create for themselves.
There is loving shining in the air in both 5 Centimeters per Second and Clannad the After Story. The high school setting mixed with trying to cope with budding relationships set these two stories apart from others. While Clannad is more comedic based than 5cm, the same feelings are still portrayed between the main characters.
Those searching for a bitersweet romance need not look further than these two animes. Both feature amazing animation, a superb soundtrack, and characters that will make your heart melt. Both can easily be considered among the best romance anime of all time.
The eccentric mad scientist Okabe, his childhood friend Mayuri, and the otaku hacker Daru have banded together to form the Future Gadget Research Laboratory, and spend their days in a ramshackle laboratory hanging out and occasionally attempting to invent incredible, yet generally useless, futuristic gadgets. However, their claymore is a hydrator and their hair dryer flips breakers, and the only invention that’s even remotely interesting is their Phone Microwave, which transforms bananas into oozing green gel. But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences...
Both have strong male leads who make friends with a group of women and help them with their trobules. Both have bittersweet endings and emotional rollercoaster's of a ride. Both are top notch anime.
Both of them give you tear-suspence,some romance and humor. Both with male leading charaters. Also twisted outer world inflicting with the reality world.
The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!
I believe that if you like Clannad ~After Story~ or Suzumiya Haruhi No Yuutsu you would like the other because of these reasons.
1: They both take place in High Schools
2. They also both have a good if not simliar statement on how life can reward you
3. They both have the same element of a rogue if not weird or questionable person changing over time
4. They both have a simliar pattern as to how the plot goes forward from its beginning
5.Both of these anime's would surely not dissapoint the idle watcher and definitely not the hardcore otaku because they present a little bit of each genre of anime except machine/blood violence.
Art college: cradle of romance, home of bittersweet moments. Takemoto is struggling to find his direction in life, while his roommates Morita and Mayama are moving confidently - or recklessly - towards their goals. Enter Hagu-chan, the childlike and beautiful prodigy whom everyone admires; and thus the love triangles begin. Together, the trio explore the pain of first love, the trials of romantic conflict, and our loyalty to those annoying people who happen to be our closest friends.
I definitely recommend H&C to those who enjoyed After Story =) H&C isn't really similar to the first season of Clannad, but I felt like it really brought out the same feelings as the After Story.
They both deal with realistic situations and I think that's what both of them stick to me so much. Although Clannad has a more magical spin on things, it still manages to bring out a real approach on life after high school. Similar to H&C, they show the hardships to being alone, finding work, and relationships. What really stood out to me though, was After Story and H&CII both show how the story goes in a full circle and leaves the audience with a complete understand of all the characters. We're left with a sensation that nothing else could be said and it really is a complete ending.
