Due to his parents' work, Riku Aoba is about to transfer to Tsumugino Private High School; but it's no ordinary high school! Unlike other student bodies, Tsumugino's academic system has a great deal of freedom; and as a result, Riku is often dragged into various schemes the student council has created, resulting in him being chased around the school for a prize reward. To make matters even more complicated, three of the most popular girls in school are falling for him. With such a busy school life, how will Riku survive?!

Both of these great anime have a pack of girls fighting over a boy one way or another. They both have great characters full of life and they both run into tough situations with hard descesions. I would strongly reccomend this anime because they both hook you into the story and leave you wanting more. The storyline is full of emoticinal twists and turns. If you liked that anime I think you will like this one.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien excel at one thing above all others: the realistic depiction of love, and the tragedy of heartbreak that goes along with it. Though Video Girl Ai might come across like a generic romance series at first, and/or has a lot more comedy, both it and KgNE felt EXTREMELY similar to me as far as how they made me feel, and how sad they are. Try it out, I don't think you'll be disappointed.



Sogoru Kyo is a normal high school student with great passion for the things he holds dear. In fact, his love for swimming is so great he is attempting to single-handedly keep the team alive. However, his life takes an unexpected twist when meets a strange girl at the pool whose existence shows him an enemy force that is threatening the very existence of humanity. These beings known as GARDS-OMS seek to eliminate humanity and take Earth for their own. His choice is to live as he has been, or take a place in the cockpit of a mecha to stop the extinction of humanity. They often say the truth will set you free, but in this case the truth may destroy Kyo and leave his beloved hometown without the hero it so desperately needs.

Yes, Zegapain has mecha, science-fiction themes, combat, and an epic story about mankind's future and uphill struggle for survival. But it also has relationships affected by tragedies, sacrifices made for others, and themes of friendship and romance. If you liked the depth, love, and tragedy of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, and don't mind something similar but in a fantastical and action-packed setting, then I highly recommend Zegapain.
