Felt that you wanted more of love triangles? then this is a good choice^^ This time it's not the guy who can't decide who he is in loved with, it's the girl. It got everything you would be looking for if you liked Kimi ga Nozomu Eien. This series is abit older and you will see that in the animation but don't let that stop you ;) Be sure to check it out if you enjoyed watching Kimi ga Nozomu Eien.

Both are intruiging and deep romantic stories, though the main difference is the ammount of humor and the naimation. I felt there was alot more humor in Hana Yori Dango, while the animation of Kimi Ga Nozomu EIen is way better.

Both animes are very similar to this in that it's not the usual people too shy to even kiss each other for 20+ eps romantic anime. The characters feel real in both, plus they both have great stories.

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!

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.

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.

Although the two don't share as much a likeness in art-style as their general themes, a catastrophic event that ties all those related from completely moving on (or at all) and friendship, both are sure to bring the similar teary-eyed moments or emotional drama required of a great "slice of life" anime. In the interest of not spoiling too much, Anohana and Kiminozo both provide viewers with the "conflict of interests" scenarios in anime that dare to ask morally difficult questions. They are both tied to a reality we're familliar with; those we like/love, and choosing between them, one's future, and/or one's social commitments. Moreover, if you like to see before and after stories, great flashbacks, chances to analyze character development, make character comparisons, and like all great slice of life anime, recall similar experiences in your own life you may, or may not, have wanted to have done differently, these two provide those criteria.

MonkeyZerg MonkeyZerg says...

Ano Hana and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien are both heavy emotional dramas that delve into themes such as love, loss, memory, and living with it all. I must admit, both shows were very powerful for me, and looking back, they had such a great effect on me for similar reasons. I'm sure if you're a fan of one, you'll love the other.

Airotia Airotia says...

KgNE ranges much further on the dramatic scale and has fewer 'light-hearted' moments, but they are similar in overall plot. A tragedy occurs to one of the members of a group of friends, which causes the group to split. The people within the group grow and change, and then... the person who left the group because of the tragedy randomly comes back.In AnoHana the 'coming back' was less devestating for the group and served as a 'social glue,' but in KgNE, the 'coming back' is almost as devastating as her leaving. While AnoHana is more of a story about friendships, KgNE is a dramatic love story. However, if you liked the general plot, you'll probably like one as well as the other.

Though "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien" is a series that functions as one continous whole, and "Kita-he" is an anthology of connected short stories, the two anime have a lot of common ground. There is the romance element, of course, and all the trivial common details that are elements of the Japanese culture's romantic imagery (including the tragically bedridden beauty, locked in a hospital pining for love). But there is also a more fundamental common factor, namely the element of hope. In "Kita-he", the quest is for the redemptive love that is represented by the diamond dust. In "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien", the quest is to redeem the petty wrongdoings and unavoidable sins that accompany the human condition.

Himitsu Himitsu says...

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Diamond Daydreams are series about the development of love, and the troubles of a relationship. Both series have the central theme of romance, and both have their share of drama. I think the way the characters interact are similar; you'll have your misunderstandings, tantrums, and heartache. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien has a much deeper story and dwells much deeper into characters. Diamond Daydreams had a fun opening, and gives you a variety of types of relationships, and their issues.

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.
