Both Kimagure Orange Road: I Want to Return to That Day and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien are love-triangle anime involving a sometimes-aimless young man and two young women who love him. In each series, the young man and two women (one comparatively tough and one comparatively soft) work out how to live their lives as school days pass into young adulthood. Whereas KOR breaks up the romantic tension somewhat with forays into the world of Kasuga Kyosuke's special ESP powers, KimiNozo takes its drama straight-up, neat and without a chaser, focusing on the vertices of the love triangle and occasionally their family and friends. While KOR may sometimes be too silly, in KimiNozo one comes to yearn for the next comedic scene, just to break the tension.

If you've seen KOR all the way through, and seeing KimiNozo for the first time, you'll probably be like me and wonder why KOR's Hiyama Hikaru couldn't have been more like KimiNozo's Suzumiya Haruka. I guess that's what makes the 1980s different from the zeroes, however. Even so, I'd have to say that those who love KOR's romantic interplay would find themselves at home watching KimiNozo, while a KimiNozo fan would probably see precursors of that love triangle in KOR (especially ShinKOR).

To make matters worse, he is plagued by dreams in which he wanders through a land of nothingness. Attending school only through force of habit, Tomoya one day meets a girl called Furukawa Nagisa; and over time, while helping her to reform the school's drama club, Tomoya learns to smile and have fun once more. His dreams have become less dark, as though a ray of hope has appeared; but could there be more to these dreams than there appears to be?

Both Clannad the Movie and KGNE are sad character driven anime that explore the characters feelings extensivly without any melodrama.

Both of these series are more about real life situations. Yes they are kind of out there situations but to be a good show its going to be. They both have heavy romance themes and both great anime.

Although Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is far more dramatic than Lovely Complex, I feel that fans of the show looking for more romance anime to watch would enjoy Lovely Complex.

Summer break is now over; the second semester has started for Tomoya, Nagisa and the others, and little has changed. Since Tomoya's relationship with his father is still troubled, he continues to live with Nagisa and her family, even if it means getting roped into organizing a baseball team for the family bakery. Life at school continues as normal with Sunohara as carefree as ever; however, when his sister Mei voices her concerns about him, the series of events that follow place a strain on Sunohara and Tomoya’s friendship. Whether it's saving a person from themselves or passing on a message from the past, one thing’s for sure: no matter how tough things get, good friends will always be there to help out.

Both have deeply touching drama, and they give happy or sad ending, what ever you decine to believe is the best.

Stories are taken from the start to the end, these doesn't give you headache, example "what will they do after they get out of the school".
