Welcome to the NHK!

Welcome to the NHK!

Tatsuhiro Sato is a university dropout and a "hikikomori" – a person suffering from social withdrawal. To Sato’s dismay, his self-imposed exile from the world is rudely interrupted when a mysterious girl knocks on his door. She has charged herself with the task of curing Sato of his hikikimori ways! Now, as new problems ranging from hentai games to internet suicide spring up, can Sato manage to overcome his hermit-like ways, or will the imaginary N.H.K conspiracy force him to remain a hikikomori forever?

Both Honey and Clover and Welcome to the NHK have main characters that are just outrageously funny and lighthearted. Both have a drama element that is blown out of proportion. If you like this type of wacky humor, then these match up.

ackguy

Both animes explore the pivotal young adult years (as opposed to high school) and the societal pressures that come with it. Poignant, funny, and inspiring, the two shows contain characters that are all broken in some way that are easy to empathize with. Sub themes of failure, the importance of little achievements, and friendship make for fantastic and unique stories.

Although today Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari live far apart due to a family move shortly after elementary school, they were once two shy young students brought together by their shared differences from their peers. It is because of this that the two built a bond of closeness between them that still survives through their continued correspondence, even over such a distance. Secretly they both fear the loss of this bond over time, and for this reason they arrange a meeting between just the two of them. The journeys both of them take in their minds and in their lives create an atmosphere of intense emotional upheaval, but also a sense of peace. It is a twist of fate and a series of decisions that put the two in place to carry what they choose of their pasts into the future they will create for themselves.

Each of these series have a strong emphasis how sad life can be as you progress through it, in all aspects. 5 CM/S is a lot more melancholic and less comedic than H&C, but each series definitely have that melancholy centered strongly around love and growing up there.

The funny times, the sad times, the happy times, the angry times; these series go though them all. You go along with the characters in both Air and Honey and Clover in their search. Whether it be for a girl with wings or the reason to paint, you're right there with them.

Antique Bakery

Antique Bakery

Tachibana has recently quit his job at a high-class firm, and for unknown reasons, decides to open a bakery. His first employee is Ono, an extremely talented patissier who is also known as the 'Gay of demonic charm' - something that has caused him to lose his job countless times. Joining the crew also is Eiji - a retired champion boxer - who is hired on the spot as only a trainee purely because he is not Ono's 'type.' However, Chikage, the bumbling childhood friend and shadow of Tachibana, is exactly his type! Now, with the shop finally open, everyone seems to be filling their positions well; but one question remains: what were Tachibana's motives for opening the bakery, and does it have a link to his troubled and forgotten past?

Both Antique Bakery and Honey and Clover have a soft and relaxing tone most of the time. They are both character driven and give good insight into all the characters lives. Love and friendship are important themes in both.

Aria the Animation

Aria the Animation

Neo Venezia, the pride of planet Aqua, is a quaint city filled with canals and easy-going people. Many companies operate their gondolas on the canals, giving tours to tourists and locals alike, but the most famous of them is the Aria Company. Follow the adventures of Aria's young apprentice, Akari, as she learns the tricks of the trade from her beautiful senior, Alicia. Together with her friends Aika and Alice, apprentices of rival companies, and their seniors Akira and Athena, they train their skills as gondoliers, meeting new people and learning new things about the city each day.

While I agree that art school have nothing to do with gondolas, the main "theme" is the same in those animes. It's a story about a group of friends, slowly learning about their profession, and maturing in order to enter the adult life.

Both stories are focused on chaming the viewer with some beatiful moments. Both are very calming and heartwarming.

The main difference (apart from world setting) is that Honey and Clover is also filled with romance, and Aria have almost no romance at all.
