If you liked the H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~ anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Shinichiro Nakagami is an everyday high school student, with the exception of having his beautiful and athletic childhood friend Hiromi Yuasa living in his household after the death of her parents. Unfortunately, their relationship is cold at best - Shinichiro can tell that she is suffering, but she acts coldly and distant from her foster family and so he is unable to help ease her sadness. His family is also forcing him to practice a traditional Japanese dance that does not interest him, adding to his frustration. On top of that, he is cursed to misfortune by another girl in school, the eccentric Noe Isurugi. Shinichiro juggles all of these problems on a day-to-day basis as he learns about love and the sadness of those around him.
In H2O and True Tears there are the same types of school and characters experiences. However, H20 has a more fantasy-based aspect to it while True Tears is more on the realistic side of life in a situation that could actually happen.
Love, haterd, misunderstandings, tough past, high school life - this is what those two have in common. Though please note that while TT is typical slice of life story, H2O has some fanstaly plots involved.

As Tatsuya struggles to deal with the ramifications of this, and as tensions rise between Earth and Moon, he also learns that there is more to this homestay than meets the eye, and that he and Feena have a shared destiny...
Yoake and H2O are romances that focus on both the main pair's developing relationship, as well as an additional conflict that they work together to resolve. Yoake is the more stable and less ecchi of the two, which can be good or bad depending on individual taste. But overall, they're certainly similar enough to warrant a recommendation.
I agree because it is very touching and similar. mAKE SURE YOU WATCH both. Both made and will make you feel the feeling inside because they are very good anime. In 12 episode the really done it!

The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?
You may think that these two anime have nothing at all in common, but when you look closer - there it is! Isolated, little village with terrible events from the past that stay as a secret influencing contemprorary life of villagers, and then the boy comming from Tokyo, making commotion, asking inconvinient questions, trying to change things from as they are now and protect his friends. Mystery and drama - this is what you will find in both of these series :)
