A couple of romanaces that sprinkle in comedy (maybe a bit more in Toradora) Both of the female leads are similar in look, One is more of a Tsundere.

The original creator is the same on both of these projects, so you should see some similarities.

If you liked one, you might like the other.

One of my 2 favorite slice of life and romance animes.          

The reason I recomment this anime is because it has great character developement, interesting story thoughout the whole anime and its great to watch.

It makes me want to watch more and more by each episode. 

serge512 serge512 says...

well. both start a relationship of friends while loving others. an thats when the good story begins for both of them. Golden Time master piece. Toradora well tsundere dere. so if you are a fan of tsundere pls watch both if not then watch at your own risk.

Scarchan Scarchan says...

same creator, but toradora is extremely well done and does not rely on a lazy, external, borderline supernatural external conflict (memory loss and ghosts.) Toradora is so strong that the plot is driven by its characters and is therefore much more natural and well done than Golden Time. Also, Taiga > Koko!!!!!

daft3wayne daft3wayne says...

They are both by the same author,Yuyuko Takemiya, and shes pretty good with romance/comedy, so they approximatly have equal amounts of comedy and romance...i loved em both!

asiancomicdude asiancomicdude says...

Both shows are very heartfelt and dive into the complex nature of falling in love. Toradora may have more comedic tone overall but that doesn’t mean Golden Times doesn’t have its moments. While I wish both had their own sequels for telling what happens later once the shows end, watching these two one after another is also rather enjoyable due to the similar story telling quality.

Both Golden Time and Toradora have the same author so that is a plus it's self but in golden time then roles are similar in a sense with Tada Banri being the main male character who is loved by other female characters and the same funny theme and sense of abandonment that both Tada Banri and taiga have. Just watch the whole anime and your sure to cry at the end if you crude when watching Toradora like I did too.

HarukaHarada HarukaHarada says...

They both have almost the same kind of comedy and romance thats whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy i did that on order to add my comment, gomen.

FunkyTim FunkyTim says...

Both series are about groing up, and all the ups and downs that entails. Love triangles and heartbreak are featured in either, although Golden Time has a supernatural subplot that Toradora! lacks. The characters and their relationships too each other go through a considerable amount of development in either of these shows, and while I find Toradora's ending to be way more satisfying than Golden Time's, fans of either show will enjoy the other.

akirasanada akirasanada says...

Because both works has the same author and the art is very similar. Both stories are interesting. Though if I had to choose, I'd prefer Toradora it has better plot and characters than Golden Time. 

Uzrfrndly Uzrfrndly says...

I was shocked to see how far down the list of recommendations golden time is for toradora. 

There's a big reason you would love golden time if you loved toradora... it was written by Yuyuko Takemiya! If you hadn’t already guessed, she also wrote toradora!

All the hilarious jokes are there, the art is practically the same, and best of all there's plenty of glorius feels just like you loved in toradora.

If you loved toradora there's no way you won't love golden time... i mean... same author! What are you waiting for!?

Great characters, fun to watch and entertaining. Nana is little darker compared to Golden time.

x0xJessChux0x x0xJessChux0x says...

Both are awesome and contain complicated relationships.

Golden Time also has many references to Nana throughout the anime.

AquaRose AquaRose says...

Nana even makes a crossover appearance in episode 4 of golden time! They both are about post high school people searching for self identity.

CommanderKarasu CommanderKarasu says...

Nana and Golden Time go through the difficult and complex times of relationships, both friendly and romantic. Nana is a bit more mature and realistic, but they're emotional rollercoasters with all the drama going on. Trust and betrayal, love and friendship, happy times and sad times, both Nana and Golden Time have that going on and will leave you wondering what could possibly happen next. 

SamIchi SamIchi says...

Both are very similar Nana appears in the anime a few times. Nana is darker since it's a little more realistic but both are very entertaining, watch both~!

grimreape5 grimreape5 says...

honestly nana is much darker show than golden time. i make the recommendation for only 3 reasons first being nana is one of the main charachters second it focuses on the hardships of life most anime try to ignore making you question loves true value and third the show clearly draws the line between love and lust and the consequences of both

kuhakuyo kuhakuyo says...

Epic...Golden Time is the best anime.

Nana is good, because the Nana character in Golden Time, represents the Nana (dark) in Nana :).

Feng Feng says...

The Nana in Golden Time reminds me of one of the Nanas in the anime serie named Nana. It's almost like the character is taken out of one, and into the other.

Both of them are romatic anime.

Golden time is a romantic comedy your lie in april is music passion an roamance.  In both of them the scary feeling of loosing someone is present.An other common point would be that there is like a love triangle. Your lie in april is in my opinion much more sentimental than Golden time.

YesImAFurry YesImAFurry says...

altho they have way diferent plot lines the style of romance is the same and with both of them whenever the two are together you just cant help but smile. (minus the few times that are insanely sad in both of them) but other than those they are both great animes with great plots that are enjoyable to watch.

Fit4Life Fit4Life says...

Your Lie in April and Golden Time are very similiar. Both are about a boy who struggles with some sort of emotional/psychological issue and both are able to overcome it through the help of friends (and in particular a girl). They are light-hearted, comical, and fast paced. Both will make you cry at times and both will make you smile.

rajaymoore rajaymoore says...

Both these anime have a very compelling story and whenever I try to compare The two your lie in April would blow golden times away but they both have a certain dark theme to it when both of the Main characters not being able to let go of the past but this is an amazing watch I highly recommend 

ilyarad ilyarad says...

It has a similair feeling to both of them during the series and both benchwatchers and well they are awesome!

ef - a tale of memories

ef - a tale of memories

In a high school setting, there are many people whose stories must be told: Hiro, an aspiring manga artist whose view of the world is "missing a certain color," according to himself; his childhood friend Kei, who is vying for his attention; Kyosuke, a photographer and cameraman who seeks to capture true emotion in his work; the ever-cheerful Miyako, who meets Hiro by chance and immediately becomes attached to him; the gentle Renji, unsure of his aspirations to become a novelist; and Kei's mysterious and quiet sister Chihiro, who seems to be a different person every day. As time passes and they interact with one another more, their paths increasingly intertwine as shades of regrettable pasts emerge.

Bronia Bronia says...

Both anime are romance anime for an older audience. They look at how memory affects personality. They also focus on multiple relationships. Their animation styles are jarringly different and Ef is slightly less grounded in reality than Golden Time, furthermore, the characters of each anime are different ages (high school vs College age) however fans of one should definitely try out the other.

tootalls tootalls says...

I you enjoyed golden time you will love ef a tale of memories. EF is a more realistic take on romance with an individual with some sort of amnesia.

shanjo shanjo says...

Both of these anime deal with college students dealing with the maturaty that comes with age. Both deal with relationships and their comlications, along with other very real issues. They also both have hilarious moments and characters you really get attached to. If you liked one, you'd definately be into the other. 

Funkgun Funkgun says...

Titles that have complexities far beyond the normal rom-com. They have funny momnets, but plenty of drama as well. What you want to happen does not always happen like you want, but the relations feel real.

The characters are fleshed out in both series. and possibly a bit more in Honely and clover.
