Voices of a Distant Star

But when she enlists in the galactic army, who is desperate for candidates to fight an alien war, she finds herself drifting farther away from her first love, Noboru. In the depths of space, where a simple email takes eight years to be delivered, will their love truly flourish, or simply fade away?

Hoshi no Koe and KgNE are both heartbreaking dramas about romance, and the people ensnared in it. In addition, both are surprisingly "real", with the relationships between the characters, unlike many airheaded school dramas.

Masakari Masakari says...

Like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, Hoshi no Koe is about young lovers torn apart by fate, and how real feelings for another person may fade with time, but never really disappear.

Ultima Ultima says...

On the surface, Hoshi no Koe's premise seems simple. It centers mainly on unfair, unrequitted romance, much like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien. However, Hoshi no Koe adds an unique perspective on this frequently used theme. In this anime's sci-fi future, Nagamine gets drafted away by the galactic army, suddenly ending her relationship with her boyfriend. Her only means of communicating with him is by e-mail, and the further away she gets from earth, the longer it takes for her messages to be delivered. Ultimately, she gets so far away from Earth that it takes years just to deliver a simple e-mail message. Hoshi no Koe offers a realistic, yet tragic stance on how how far two lovers will take their long distance relationship. If you like the realism in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, you'll definitely love Hoshi no Koe.

Boys Be

Boys Be

There is nothing more sad and pleasant than love in its various forms, and a group of high school students will discover them in this melancholy series. The focus is on Kanzaki Kyoichi, an artist and a dreamer at heart, and Nitta Chiharu, a track star and a childhood friend of Kyoichi's. From spring to summer to fall to winter, love will grow and fade, and grow again

If you enjoyed the realistic aspect of relationships in KgNE, you'll appreciate the more light hearted and varied series Boys Be. Wonderful animation, and fantastic tales of a group of friends who experience change and wonder in new relationships, themselves, and life in general.

Both Boys Be and KgNE have a realistic approach to relationships, romance and the problems associated with them. KgNE is rather dramatic and focusses on a single (triangle) relation, while Boys Be covers several relations and first romantic experiences. However the beauty of both anime is that as the episodes pass, the characters really grow and become more mature in their relations and the choices that must be made. It's a process of try and learn for all characters involved and the road is often a bumpy one. For sheer realism alone these two are must-see anime for any romance fan. Note that KgNE is rather dramatic (and sometimes depressing) as it focusses more on the negative side, while Boys Be takes a lighter, more optimistic yet serious approach.

bile bile says...

the same reason as my reccomendation for Love Hina, "Atmospere" however, boys be has got one more detail which makes it even more alike KGNE than Love Hina: it's melancholic genre.it's the same as KGNE.

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

Yuichi is a teenage boy who was diagnosed with hepatitis; and as staying at the hospital is boring, he often sneaks out at night to hang out with his friends. However, each time he is caught by the slightly sadistic nurse Akiko, he just prolongs his stay at the hospital. After his most recent escape, instead of striking a punch or kick at Yuichi, Akiko says that she'll overlook his sneak outs if he becomes friends with 17-year-old Rika, another hospital resident. Rika doesn't open up to him at first, but she has her reasons: she has a weak heart; and though she may come off as selfish and rude, Yuichi looks beyond the surface to help both of them enjoy what life has to offer.

Although the circumstances are very different in both anime, Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien are bittersweet tales of romance and tell of how an accident or illness can affect a relationship. And both series also have some funny moments too!

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien both deal with romance and tragedy. They both end up with people in the hospital in which that venture effects the lives of all the characters in the series. The accident or illness can even affect the relationships of the main characters and the trials and tribulations that they have to go through to keep their relationships going.

apursansar apursansar says...

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora deal with the desperate search for love in unfortunate circumstances. Apparently desperate situations, misunderstandings and the inability to communicate oneself adequately play an important part, as well as the consequences of permanent psychological strain. Both series are excellent tragedies which never decline into stereotypes, creating a rich atmosphere of profound sadness.

Don't be turned off by the fact that both are H-games turned into anime. The drama in both series is touching and you feel for the characters.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Kanon and Rumbling Hearts involve how everything changes concerning love and relationships for the characters in the series. Both are very dramatic anime with a mature outlook on life, although Kanon has a more fanciful approach to it.

Both the series are lossely connected. In both series there is a similar order of events as well as similar character relations. The main difference is that Natsuiro na Sunadokei puts it's accent on the part which doesn't get the main attention in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien as well as the non-fictional content in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien as opposed to the completely fictional content of Natsuiro na Sunadokei

bebe4styll bebe4styll says...

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Natsuiro no Sunadokei show beautiful love stories, where the characters are not afraid to show love, and they get complicated with the love of a third person that gets in the way. Both animes are heart-warming , although they might make your heart beat faster with anger at times. If you liked one, you should like the other.
