Itazura na Kiss

Itazura na Kiss

Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is simiilar to Itazura na Kiss due the dramatic romance that happens between the characters. In both stories you have a male character who is unsure of his feelings but through almost losing everything he soon figures out what is most important to him. Unlike Itazura na Kiss, there is no comedy in Kimi ga Nocomu Eien, and there is no feel good family scenes. However in both shoujo anime series you get a good romance between the characters.

Kimagure Orange Road: I Want to Return to That Day

Kimagure Orange Road: I Want to Return to That Day
  • Movie (1 ep x 70 min)
  • 1988

Kyosuke, Madoka and Hikaru are growing up and moving on; two headed for college, the third for the stage. This movie, which is a follow-up to the plot of the classic 80's series, details how each of the characters is coming to grips with their feelings for each other and where they are headed in their future. Unique storytelling wraps around the plot to give you a deeper understanding of the situation. An insightful movie that tugs at the heart strings, it serves to remind you that youth doesn't last forever.

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).

Kimagure Orange Road TV

Kimagure Orange Road  TV

A classic romantic comedy from the 1980's, telling the bittersweet story of three high school students. The series features very unique storytelling and direction, music from some of the biggest Japanese pop acts of the 1980's, and an added twist as Kyosuke and his family are ESPers, whose powers are used to tell unique stories and put the characters in unusual situations.

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...

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.

Dr Kenzo Tenma is a genius surgeon working in post-Cold War Germany who has a bright future ahead of him. He is admired by his colleagues, loved by his patients, and due to marry his boss' daughter, the beautiful Eva Heinemann. One day, when two patients in desperate need of emergency surgery are wheeled into his hospital, Tenma faces a terrible choice of saving the orphaned boy who came first or the mayor of Düsseldorf, whose recovery would raise the hospital's profile and boost his own career. Against the demands of his superior, Tenma does what he believes is right and saves the child. However, his decision not only damages his prospects, but unleashes a chain of events so horrific that it might have come from the depths of his worst nightmares. Laden with guilt, Tenma begins a journey across Germany in search of a formidable young man who will challenge his morals, his love for life, and his very sanity.

Reality is an element rarely occuring in anime, perhaps because one of the great sides of animation as a technique is to be able to show "unreal" without cheap and clumsy "special effects". One might say that both of these series could easily enough have been done as acted series so there is no point of making these animes and with that I disagree. These are still animes and work like animes, so don't be afraid that you'll get some cheap american tv-show turned into anime. These animes are surely very different by mood and themes and all that, but even as they are only connected by the fact that the world and the people feel and taste real, I'd say that if you liked the other you'll like the other too.
