Whilst hunting for a place to live the two Nanas again cross paths. They decide to share a flat and become best friends in no time.

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

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

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.

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.

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. 

Toradora!

Toradora!

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.

JimmyPark JimmyPark says...

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. 

Peach Girl

Peach Girl

Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!

Peach girl and Golden time have really good stories and characters. Peach girl have triangular love stories and had really good ending. Golden time is on going but very entertaining.
