Synopsis:

Art college: cradle of romance, home of bittersweet moments. Takemoto is struggling to find his direction in life, while his roommates Morita and Mayama are moving confidently - or recklessly - towards their goals. Enter Hagu-chan, the childlike and beautiful prodigy whom everyone admires; and thus the love triangles begin. Together, the trio explore the pain of first love, the trials of romantic conflict, and our loyalty to those annoying people who happen to be our closest friends.

Gokinjo Monogatari

Gokinjo Monogatari

Sixteen-year-old Mikako Kouda has two loves in her life: fashion, and her childhood friend Tsutomu Yamaguchi. Though she dreams of creating her own clothing brand someday, Mikako's true desires lie with Tsutomu - but there's a problem: he's dating the voluptuous and highly-sought-after "Body-Ko!" The two longtime companions seem to have feelings for each other, but school, other relationships and additional obstacles continue to stand in their way. Will Mikako and Tsutomu ever be together?

Two shows about different kinds of artists, their inspirations, and their relationships; Honey & Clover and Gokinjo Monogatari are a good recommendation for each other.  They not only focus on the art, but the people behind it. The themes of first loves, growing up and finding your own way fill both these shows. If you liked the mood of one of these shows- be sure to check out the other!

AirCommodore

Gokinjo Monogatari and Honey and Clover are shoujo/josei character dramas with humor and tons of angsty love triangles and crying, while still managing to be really good.

Both have an absolutely loveable cast of characters that attend an art school and are easy to relate to.

shanjo

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

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.

Hataraki Man

Hataraki Man

28-year-old Hiroko Matsukata is the definition of a workaholic. On top of smoking too much, rarely having sex and having lousy luck nurturing her romantic life, she works excessively to get the job done. Alongside many co-workers at the weekly news magazine Jidai, Hiroko tirelessly works on countless stories – thus negating any chance of a social life. Can Hiroko balance her home and work life, or is she doomed to be a 'working man' forever?

SomeoneElse

Honey and Clover and Hataraki Man are very disparate in relation to their stories and artistic styles. However they both take a very straightforward way of looking at the internal struggles of some intrinsically realistic characters. Especially similar is the way in which the catharsis of supporting characters is expressed as an important part of the growth of the central character. To put it into a nutshell, if you liked the well developed character growth in one series, the other should please as well.

Ran

Both Hataraki Man and HnC question the meaning of life and work (whether it is studying or a job) and the priorities and purpose that the main character gives him/herself in life, sweetened with a background romance.

Koi Kaze

Koi Kaze

If life teaches us anything, it is that love sometimes happens in the most unlikely of places, with the most unlikely of people. Koshiro is a run-of-the-mill salaryman who has recently been dumped by his partner. With his heart broken and hope lost, he soon comes to realize that he can love again, once he sets eyes on a beautiful young schoolgirl riding the train. However, there is one catch -- this girl named Nanoka is his sister, who he has not seen in years. Knowing that their forbidden love will always be scrutinized by society; will Koushirou and Nanoka be able to resist the temptation?

Both of these series explore the ins and outs of love in odd ways. Romance abounds but questions of the chars self worth and where they fit into the greater scheme of things is explored in depth. If your looking for a romance with a little more substance than either will suit you well.
TropicalMist

Firstly, I want to point out that these two animes are completely different in plot and even characters. They're not similar in storylines or ideas...

But the reason I would recommend Koi Kaze is because I feel that they have the same animation designs. The two anime are both slow-paced and take a few episodes to resolve a question or problem (or maybe they're not solved at all?). The story-telling method is very similar with the monologues and questions of life.

Even though their topic matters vary, if you're looking for something with the same mellow tone and continuity as H&C, Koi Kaze satisfies that request.

Kuragehime

Kuragehime

Tsukimi is an otaku and jellyfish enthusiast whose only means of coping with the world is to reject it: she and her friends live in a house they declare a man-free zone, generally avoid 'stylish people', and spend their days blissfully bonding over geeky rituals. As misfortune would have it, their convenient existence is about to be turned on its head by the arrival of Kuranosuke, a seemingly beautiful young woman who is actually a beautiful young man. While he may be strange even by their standards, Kuranosuke embodies everything Tsukimi secretly dreams of being - a princess as ethereal as a floating jellyfish - and promises the kind of mind-boggling adventures only possible when geek meets chic!

Korwin

What would an anime look like if the characters weren't the usual run-of-the-mill teenagers you usually get to see in anime? The answer lies in these shows which also share the josei tag that makes them more watchable for the mature audience, still the humor is very good and can be easily accepted for all viewer groups in my opinion. Did I mention both have apartment buildings with unique tenants?

krukky

i agree with the person above. and moreover, both kuragehime and honey & clover are great shows, which really do deserve your attention if you're into fine humour, full-blooded and developing characters and interesting real-life stories.
