Shun, Kaname, and the twins Yuuki and Yuuta have known each other since they were young children and are now entering their second year at Homare High School. However, despite having been friends for many years, their life together isn’t always smooth sailing. And with the sarcastic and indifferent twins constantly teasing or irritating the serious Kaname, it's left up to the optimistic and kind Shun to keep the peace. But no matter their differences, the four boys stick together through everything, whether they’re simply reminiscing about their days in kindergarten, attempting to get Yuuki interested in a school club, or trying to stop the source of Shun's recent run of bad luck.
If you took Daily Lives of High School Boys and drained out all the comedy, you'd get the much blander Kimi to Boku.. If you're looking for a slice of life about school boys, I suggest you watch either one of these, but if you're looking for comedy, I suggest Daily Lives of High School Boys.
They're both similar in that they're comedy/slice-of-life shows focusing on high school boys, unlike the near-ubiquitous shows that focus on high school girls. However, both shows differ wildiy in execution. Daily Lives... has a frantic style of comedy, hysterical characters and rather odd situations. Kimi to Boku., the other hand, has a more down to earth approach to both comedy and situations, its characters rather mellow (or milquetoast) in comparison.
If you saw Kimi to Boku. but want some more pace and fun characters, go watch Daily Lives..., but if Daily Lives... was a bit to... loud for you, check out Kimi to Boku. And if you watched either one but just want to watch some school boys, why not watch the other series?
Two slice of lifes about a group of high school boys, each of whom has a distinct personality. Drama and humor ensue.
While D.L.H.S.B. is more comedic, Kimi to Boku has it's humourous moments as well - and both of which have their heart-warming moments and revolve around every day high school life.
Natsume is lonely; he has an ability that separates him from others: he can see and interact with spirits. Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...
this may seem an odd recommendation but both have the same laid back slow pace to them with similar artwork and colouring. Natsume Yuujinchou does have more of a plot line with more action and suspense while kimi to boku is more comedy but both have their moments and both are worth checking out.
Natsume yuujinchou reminds me of kimi to boku and vice versa. Why, you say? Well. because both animes give you "all-that-warm-and-fuzzy-feeling". Though, the genres are different and the stories are in no way similar to each other but if you like this anime, you should check out the other one too :)
Although Natsume has a super natural theme to it while Kimi to Boku is a slice of life genre - both are very heart-warming, revolved around every day life and building friendships while going through life's daily hardships. Both very touching.
When Haruka, Makoto, Nagisa and Rin were in elementary school, they swam together in a relay race and won the match. As Rin was on his way to Australia to train to become an Olympic champion, the gang decided to bury their trophy in a time capsule and retrieve it when they all had grown up. Now, Haruka, Makoto and Nagisa have reunited in high school and decide to dig up the prize. But on the way there, they run into none other than Rin, and he's determined to show Haru who's the best! As a result of this fateful meeting, the three friends decide to start a swim club, along with fellow classmate Rei, and their rival's little sister Gou as the team manager. Can the gang hold their own against Rin and prove their skills at the Prefectural Tournament?
Both Free! and Kimi to Boku revolve around a group of high school boys. The characters in both interact similarly with each other: despite the fact that they do nothing but argue with each other, you can tell they're good friends. If you enjoy the characters in either show, I'd recommend trying the other.
Both shows feature a cast made primarily out of highschool boys and is generally about them interacting with eachother. Kimi to Boku is more of a regular slice of like while Free has more of a fanservice element and it's about a sports club.
Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
Kimi to Boku and Ouran High School Host Club are both comedy series about a group of high school boys and the girl that joins their group of friends. Though they don't seem like the most likely of friends at first, the characters in both series stick by each other and make their unique friendships work. Kimi to Boku is more laid-back than Ouran, and the humor is rather dry. Ouran, however, is very energetic with a broader humor, and focuses more on the girl as the main character rather than the boys like Kimi to Boku does.
They both have a group of high school guys and one girl. It's about there adventures together I presume.
