RxJ is a great twist on the timeless tale. I definitely recommend it to any fans of Kanon. It has a good pace, but it's not difficult to keep up. And of course a beautiful love story with lots of action mixed in.
Kanon is officially my favorite. It seems to have everything. It's alternatingly hilarious and super-sad/bittersweet and there's plenty of action. And the animation is equally gorgeous!
After losing their parents, twins Haruka and Sora travel to the countryside to start a new life. The two soon meet new friends in the shrine maiden Akira, wealthy Kazuha and well-endowed Nao, amongst others. As the days go by, Haruka learns more and more about the new ladies in his life, all the while being a patient confidante and good friend, leading him into their hearts, as well as their loins. Meanwhile, Sora can't help but have a recurring memory of her brother kissing her as a child…
Both have several elements in common, like heroine arcs and protagonists in towns from their past, featuring school life as well. Although the ecchi is far less pronounced in Kanon, both animes have a touch of surreality, and their similarities become immediately obvious when romance scenes come into play. While Kanon is the more enjoyable of the two (at least, imho), the genres featured in Yosuga no Sora would probably appeal to Kanon's fans as well.
