Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
There are some similarities when it comes to both main lead male characters as they are unique, outgoing, and stand out quite well. Their character is what makes the series so enjoyable, and attract every other side character to make a nice cast.
In the town of Narasakicho, an eternal rainbow grants the townsfolk the "Gift" of magic, which they can use once in their lives. Haruhiko Amami is a normal student who takes his Gift very seriously, feels the urge to fix misused Gifts, and lives his life spoiled by his crazy childhood friend Kirino. But when the boy's foster sister Riko suddenly returns to town, Haruhiko's life becomes more complicated! Now, He must now deal with Riko's fan club, the girls' rivalry and watermelon squashing, all while struggling to discover the identity of a mysterious witch who likes to give away trouble-causing fake Gifts!
The similarities in these anime - that are adaptations of visual novels from the same developers - are just ridiculous. From school uniforms to the dramatic love triangles that come about, not a minute goes by where you’re not reminded of the other. Characters play instruments, investigate the mysterious wish-granting town, confront their romantic feelings for their “siblings,” etc etc. Believe me when I say never before have I watched two anime so keenly comparable. By the time you’re through, you’re going to believe the Da Capo and Gift towns existed in the same world.
It's been seven years since Yuuichi Aizawa returned to the city he once lived in as a child. Though many things happened to Yuuichi in his past, he can only remember bits and pieces. His parents left Yuuichi in the care of Akiko once again, and this time, he will attend the same school as his cousin Nayuki. Many different girls appear before him, and some of them seem to know him from his past. Yuuichi must now recover his memories of the dark secrets that he erased from his heart, before he loses his precious ones.
Both series deal with a very common theme "life at school" and the many hurdles they will encounter along with friends. There are plenty of warm vivid colours and unique characters that are fun to watch.

The kind but oblivious to romance male protagonist. Two childhood females (infatuated with said boy) who are referred to him as his sisters - these are the main heroines. Other females also like guy, but are much less important to the story compared to the first two heroines. Will his childhood friends confess their feelings or keep them hidden? That’s the dramatic part they share so keenly in common, taken directly from the routes in the visual novels.
