Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?
Twelve year old Mitsuki's desire is to become a singer. She has the talent and a beautiful voice, but she also has a throat tumor which threatens to rob her of her gift of song. As if things weren't bad enough, two shinigami inform Mitsuki that she only has one year left to live. However, all is not lost, for they make a deal that if she goes with them, they will help realize her dream by changing her into a healthy 16-year-old, who is able to sing and apply for auditions.
Itazura Na Kiss and FM have similar female protagonists who use all they have to face their different perils. The art and comedy of these two shoujo series are not overdone or silly and are both sincere with interesting themes about unrequited love.
Deep in the mountains, isolated from civilization, there is a boys-only school that will finally be receiving its first class of girls in an attempt to transform the school into a co-ed one. Most of the boys have never been in contact with girls of their own age, leading to an explosion of hormonal craziness. From the sickeningly perverted fetishist guys, to a rather odd girl that seems to be chasing the most normal guy in the school for reasons known only to her, there's twisted humor to be had.
Ok.. if you've seen Green Green you must saying 'what the .... uber no way ya tool!' however if you liked the idea of a young woman pursuing a young man and throw in some humour to take the edge off then I think you'll enjoy Green Green as much as you like Itazura na Kiss.
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.
So I know some people might not believe it, but I really think that H&C and INK have a lot in common. I enjoyed both these anime for their realistic approaches to life and how they don't rely on overexaggerated situations or coincidences to make a story happen.
Although the characters and story plot are different, they both revolve around a series of characters that journey through school and life learning what they want to do and be. Of course, the comedy and romance is evidently there in both series as well =) But what's more, is that the anime chooses to end at the right moment where the audience just knows what's left for the characters.
Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka. But amidst the beautiful budding relationship, tragedy strikes when an accident occurs, turning Narumi’s life upside-down. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is simiilar to Itazura na Kiss due the dramatic romance that happens between the characters. In both stories you have a male character who is unsure of his feelings but through almost losing everything he soon figures out what is most important to him. Unlike Itazura na Kiss, there is no comedy in Kimi ga Nocomu Eien, and there is no feel good family scenes. However in both shoujo anime series you get a good romance between the characters.
Yuuto Ayase is not interested in girls - if his two housemates are anything to go by, girls are loud, brazen slobs that are best left alone. However, when Yuuto accidentally discovers an important secret of his school’s most popular female, Haruka Nogizaka, the two become bound in a budding friendship. All too soon, Yuuto discovers that, despite her flawless appearance, Haruka is clumsy, naive, and a closet otaku... and he just might be falling for her.
IF your feeling down or sad, watch any of these and i garrentte a happy smile at the end, they all involve a sort or "battle for love" scheme built around some teenage school life, with friends jokes, cutieness, and a whole lot of surprises, i espeically love the way the artist drew each individual charcter to match and suit there personailty, non the less garreenttte watch and you'll love! chow
