Kei Kusanagi is a shy teenage boy with no romantic experience whatsoever... until he finds out that his hot new teacher is actually an alien! In order to conceal her identity, the two are forced into a pretend marriage... but is it really a pretense, or are they actually falling in love?
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Please Teacher are great drama series with a great deal of character development, with captivating stories and tricky situations to say the least.
If you liked KGnE, you'd like Onegai Teacher mainly because there are a lot of similarities between these two series. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien has a very catchy story with a lot of drama; and while Onegai Teacher may not be as catchy, it's still a very good mirror into what could be called "a teenager's life." Both series are very good, and if you're someone who likes high school/teenage life dramas you should definitely watch these.
Rumbling Hearts and Please Teacher are both very sad and emotional. The main characters have doubts about what are right and what isn’t and trying to figure out how to handle the issues that life throws at them. Both series make the viewer try and think about what they would do in a similar situation.
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.
Long ago, young Meiko Honma tragically died and her tight-knit group of friends, shaken by the event, drifted apart. Now, ten years later, Meiko has re-appeared as a ghost that only Jinta, the former leader of the gang and an avid shut-in, can see. All she desires is for Jinta to fulfill her final wish so that she can move on to the afterlife, but with no memory of what it was, it’s up to the teenager to gather his former friends and discover what will allow his beloved friend to rest in peace. With so many feelings left unsaid, can this group work out their strife and help the ghost of the girl they once adored?
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
Diamond dust: when the moisture in the air freezes on a chilly day, the air seems to sparkle and shimmer. It is said that to see the diamond dust in its glory means that lovers will stay together forever, friendships will flourish, and dreams will be realized. Kita-he ~Diamond Dust Drops~ tells the stories of several groups of friends and lovers as they struggle to stay together, accomplish their dreams, and anything in between, all revolving around the tale of the diamond dust.
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.
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.
