Kimagure Orange Road TV

Kimagure Orange Road  TV

A classic romantic comedy from the 1980's, telling the bittersweet story of three high school students. The series features very unique storytelling and direction, music from some of the biggest Japanese pop acts of the 1980's, and an added twist as Kyosuke and his family are ESPers, whose powers are used to tell unique stories and put the characters in unusual situations.

If you do enjoy the whole school romance genre, you should enjoy this one as well, as they do have some similar elements, and this is one of the better school romance/comedies out there.

There are so many twists and turns in both Hana Yori Dango and Kimi ga nozuma eien, the emotional rollercoaster brings the audience up and down in both series.  All of the characters are extremely believable and have real life situations that they have to deal with.  Prepare yourself for one (or two!) wild adventures that will leave you wanting more long after they end.

I believe this is alot like hana yori dango because the fact that tsukushi and sana both try to neglect their feelings: tsukushi for tsukasa and sana for akito, and their are some love triangles and lots drama actually considering that the main characters are still in middle school and they are barely even teenagers, it has a major drama underlining. However the first season is kinda slow but the second season is definitely DEFINITELY worth watching and honestly ive seen the majority of all the shows that were in the recommendation & to me, kodomo no omocha is my favorite. This is avery good anime if you take the time to actually watch it and theres also some very funny skits/scenes that will have you dying! This is a underratted show and seems to be always over looked which is soo sad bc its a very good anime.

The main theme of these anime is not quite a simple love-story. Both series have dramatic and humorous parts always make you feel the situation and leave in hopes that everything's gonna be alright. Here is also the school theme.

Both are about a strong female protagonist who has been wronged and are dealing with the aftermath of that. They are also both involved with a love triangle where one of the boys is mean and immature and arrogant and loved by tons of women. The other boy is mean at first but gets better as time goes on and is also loved by tons of women.
