On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?

Both are full of cliches, both have their harems, both have an infatuation with their sisters, both have an almost supernatural element that seems to serve no real purpose

Though Da Capo changes moods in the second half of the first season,  they are both just fun comedic harem series that does some attempt to add enough drama and romance to not make you feel like your watching a completely stupid ecchi show.


I personally like Da Capo more than Akane-Iro... but I still feel that they`re both very similar.

Both are harems with protaganist who`s not exactly the best at realizing how he feels and who he likes.  They also include two main girls... one who`s the sister and one who seemingly doesn`t know the guy as well and spends the majority of the anime trying to please him and get to know him.

Although Akane-Iro doesn`t develop their characters as well, they`re both very much worth the watch since I find them both really reasonable in why they end up with the girl that they do =)


same style heram anamie, same love between siblings.  if you liked one  give the outher a watch. finding good anamie in this ghenre is  rare and there bouth good.


both Da Capo and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka feature an incest theme, love relationship between siblings, even though the siblings are not blood related in both shows. Both of them are romantic comedies, which feature some ecchi aspects and harem themes. While Da Capo changes from a funny comedy to a sorrowful drama, Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka maintains its humour until the end. Still if you liked one of this show then check the other one as well.


Da Capo and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka have the same thing in common: they are both harem ecchi series revolving around the high school drama of a boy who cannot make up his mind about the person that he likes.  Not to mention the fact that both of the series ends up with one of the protagonist’s infatuations being his sister!  The comedy aspect is more heartfelt in Akane-Iro, although Da Capo enjoys it’s fair share of awkward experiences and downright ridiculous antics too.

Most visual harem novels have a pretty standard plot: guy likes girl and girl likes guy, 2nd girl likes guy and guy has to choose between the girls, as well as a large cast of other cute girls with very separate qualities. One thing about Da Capo and Canvas that sets them apart is that one of the candidates for your main characters choice is a cousin or a sister who is not related by blood. Both anime have their light sides but grow into an intense drama when the main character has to finally decide who does he truly loves.


If you liked Da Capo, you will absolutely like Canvas 2 too. Their plots have a lot in common and they have the same kind of animation. On both stories at least 2 girls like the protagonist of the series, and the protagonist has to deal with the feelings of those girls and their jealousy.


both Canvas 2 and Da Capo have many things in common, both are visual harem novel with similar plotline, featuring a group of girls having a crush on one guy, and also both feature a type of love relationship between relatives that are not related by blood (in Canvas 2 we speak about cousins while in Da Capo we speak about siblings). Also the animation in both of this shows is pretty similar and the romance aspect as well, funny, comedy at the begining, dramatic, melancholic towards the end. If you liked one be sure to check the other as well.


Both anime are about a guy, one childhood female friend and another girl who is a cousin (one of these females live with the said male, reversing the childhood friend or cousin relation depending on the anime). The guy unknowingly has to choose between the two girls.

Of course, there’s also other girls who like the chivalrous guy, but they’re nowhere near as important as the two lead females--the cousin and the childhood friend. Essentially, both of these anime will make you think throughout them, should I date my cousin with blond hair or my childhood friend with brown hair (I’m not kidding, in both anime they have the same appearances)? Trying to figure/find out which exactly he’ll pick is what keeps you watchin’. Oh, and both have cousins who call the male protagonist “onii-chan” because they’re just that “close.”

These anime are very very similar to each other in themes and story. Both anime have a non blood related brother sister relationship. If you like one you will like the other.


Definetly, these two animes are pretty similar, in the fact gift feels more related to Da Capo than it's own sequels (also a bit more enjoyable if you ask me).

The characters even look quite simmilar (there are Suginagi, Sakura, Nemu and Kotori's clones in gift), both have a magical element that grant wishes, the brother-and-sister-non-blood-related-who-loves-each-other, and circunstances related to the wish-granting system.

If you liked Da Capo and felt a bit dissapointed with its secuels, I certainly recommend gift, and if you liked gift, you'll love Da Capo


These anime are practically identical, in both the protagonist fall for a non blood related "little sister". Both also contain elements of magic, both with jealous childhood friends interfering in the relationship using magic.  

I would strongly advise that if you like one watch the other, but take a break in between they are seriously similar plots.


Both series focus on relationships between non-blood related siblings and magic, however Da Capo has more likeable characters and is more easy-going (to begin with anyway) whereas Gift Eternal Rainbow has more drama and tragedy.

Koi Kaze

Koi Kaze

If life teaches us anything, it is that love sometimes happens in the most unlikely of places, with the most unlikely of people. Koshiro is a run-of-the-mill salaryman who has recently been dumped by his partner. With his heart broken and hope lost, he soon comes to realize that he can love again, once he sets eyes on a beautiful young schoolgirl riding the train. However, there is one catch -- this girl named Nanoka is his sister, who he has not seen in years. Knowing that their forbidden love will always be scrutinized by society; will Koushirou and Nanoka be able to resist the temptation?

Both animes have the same light, romantic humor/comedy atmosphere. Only the romance here is mainly between a brother and sister! Unlike Da Capo where all the cute girls (including his sister) in the anime is in love with the male protagonist, in Koi Kaze the male protagonist isn't surrounded by all the females who wants a piece of him which made the anime more belivable than Da Capo. And I would say that both animes end in a similar fashion.... as far as the male-female relationship is concerned and ends on a happy note... sort of... I think the ending in Koi Kaze will surprise you somewhat.... You would really have to watch it to know what I'm really talking about here of course :) what initially attracted me to this anime was the light romantic atmosphere... coz I'm a sucker for romance animes with a touch of humor and light-heartedness.... so if you are sucker for romance like me, I suggest you give this anime a try.

You will like both Koi Kaze and Da Capo if you like their romantic atmosphere, although they don't have much in common. Da Capo has many humorous scenes, lots of ecchi, and there are supernatural forces working. The male protagonist is surrounded by many girls who all fall in love with him, it's up to him who he chooses. Koi Kaze, however, has a rather melancholic atmosphere. There are no humorous scenes, no ecchi and no supernatural elements, and the male progagonist is not a Don Juan, either. If you liked one of them, I recommend the other one if it is the romantic line that you liked.


Both Koi Kaze and Da Capo deal with a relationship between a pair of siblings. Though Jun'ichi and Nemu in Da Capo are only related through adoption, the idea they have lived most of their lives as siblings brings the point into play. Koi Kaze has more of the gloomy side with self guilt and coming to truly understand the way the relationship effects those around them and their friends. Both have comedic moments, though Da Capo focuses more on this. Koi Kaze is a far more real story, but Da Capo is believable in a similar right. I think that if you Liked Koi Kaze you would enjoy Da Capo. Check it out!


both Da Capo and Koi Kaze deal with love relationships between siblings. Even so the siblings from Da Capo (Junichi and Nemu) are not related by blood, the siblings from Koi Kaze (Koshirou and Nanoka) are related by blood. Both of them are romantic comedies. While Da Capo features harem theme, ecchi aspects and far more humour, Koi Kaze is abit more dramatic, melancholic, more realistic, more believable than Da Capo. Still if you are looking for a nice romance then you should check this two shows.



Kaede is a devoted high school student who lives with her adopted brother Rin. She holds a quiet confidence that one day, when Rin finally starts showing interest in sex, he will make the obvious choice and turn to his loving sister. But what Kaede wasn’t counting on was the lords of heaven and hell coming to Earth, wanting Rin to mate with their nubile daughters! Rin, like any teenager would, takes full advantage of his newly acquired harem; but how long can he keep up his carefree, boxed-lunches-on-the-rooftop lifestyle, as the horde of girls on his tail grows?

Both series talk about the main female character liking their "oni-chan," which is the selling point of the story. Both stories have their "magical" elements. Both of them are harem anime. If you like how Junnichi struggled (more like enjoyed) through the different choices of people to choose from, you'll love Shuffle because you will get everything Da Capo has to offer plus more fanservice! If that doesn't convince you, nothing will.


The similarities between Shuffle and Da Capo are overwhelming. To list but a few.

  • Both have kind male leads, living alone with their sisters.
  • Both sisters have a crush on the male lead.
  • While the drawing style may be different between the two, the characters from both animes have similar appearance.

And the list could continue. At any rate, Shuffle had more drama (and a little more fanservice and violence) than Da Capo while the latter had more cuteness.


If you liked the harem of female students who revolve around Asakura, then you will enjoy the harem that follows Rin since both have several girls to choose from and each girl has something different to offer.


Both are typical harem series with loads of attractive and unique females all in love and fighting over the same not-so-attractive, not-so-unique guy.
