Clannad AS and KgNE both show the struggles and problems of the main character. The main characters both have a strong sense of guilt and are constantly asking themselfs "what if" questions. If you liked the drama Clannad AS offered, you will most likely "enjoy" KgNE aswell.
Both have deeply touching drama, and they give happy or sad ending, what ever you decine to believe is the best.
Stories are taken from the start to the end, these doesn't give you headache, example "what will they do after they get out of the school".
Fumizuki Academy is divided into classes ranked based purely on ability; Class A has laptops, reclining seats and ultimate comfort whereas Class F has to settle for a rundown classroom with rotten cushions and rickety coffee tables. Akihisa Yoshii has recently taken the placement exam and finds himself relegated to the lowly Class F along with many of his friends, and they’re far from impressed with their draughty facilities. Luckily, not all is lost as at Fumizuki, classes can declare war on each other to swap rooms by fighting with summoned characters whose strength is based on the users' test scores. As they dream of escaping their decrepit circumstances, the ‘idiotic’ students of Class F will try whatever they can to reach the dizzy heights of Class A’s luxury, even if it means taking on the entire school in an all-out summoning war!
Maybe a weird rec, but I can explain it
Both stories take a little amount of time to let you know how the characters are. What is more interesting is how they do things and what happened to them in the past.
Clannad is the best in drama
Baka test to shoukanjuu in comedy
Both very original and the best of their kind(my opinion)
If you're 'done' watching the one, then you'd probably like to watch the other (too much drama or comedy isn't always good :P)
You'll never regret watching 1 of those.

Though plot are unrelated, both are animes that take on emotional rolercoasters... Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai and CLANNAD: After Story excel at drawing in the audience and making them feel for every single character... both have the same type of suspense leaving you wanting more... both a outstanding animes and if you like one you will most definatly like the other. Both animes have youy feeling every possible emotion, and they play on those with amazing skill. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
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.
