A love story with a twist is the common ground on which we stand with these two animes.

It's pretty much obvious; both harem anime, both in school enviroment, both as simple as they can be. These two probably wont become your all time favourites but I believe they are very fun to watch (especially if you've recently watched a drama or something "heavy" with a complex plot and you want to get rid of the uneasy feeling it left you with).
Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?
The endings to both these animes are similar, but other than that they are very different. Shankugan is a much more mature show, while Futakoi has almost no mature aspects to it. Still, the endings are very similar and if you watch both you will see what I mean.
Wakura is so confident of getting into his chosen high school that he stops taking his tests. Unfortunately, he gets every question on his entrance exam wrong, leaving him to be thrown into a truck, put on a boat and then taken to Promised Island. There, he finds out that he was entered, by recommendation into a high school, not to mention he has twelve adopted sisters on the island that will be attending with him! More than anything Wakura wants to get off the island and get back to his old life, but eventually his sisters help him feel welcome. Together, Wakaru begins his journey of living and growing up with his twelve cute sisters.
Sister Princess and Futakoi have a few similar themes though not the same reasons. Futakoi has many sets of twins trying to win over the feelings of the main male lead. Sister Princess is more of how the younger sisters of the male lead compete for, and adore his attention. Both have a similar animation style and a light comedic feel. I belive that one who enjoys one of these series would likely find the other interesting.
