Boys Be and Kita e are about stories with separate characters. They combine real life with situations that no one wants to be in, but they also provide the positive outlooks that you need to get through anything upsetting that is related to romance. Grab a box of tissues, as these anime will tear your heart.
Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka. But amidst the beautiful budding relationship, tragedy strikes when an accident occurs, turning Narumi’s life upside-down. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.
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.
For most people, wearing glasses is a necessity for clear sight, but for four young girls, their spectacles mean so much more. From a teenage girl wearing her glasses with pride and a top idol who uses hers to disguise herself as a regular person, to a couple whose bent frames bring them closer together, a good pair of glasses can not only open your eyes, but also open your heart.
Kita e and Megane na Kanojo follow a group of girls, individually, as they deal with life and love. Kita e is a lot more dramatic while Megane is more of a romantic comedy, but they definitely have the same feel.
In twelve cities, twelve different girls will experience love, heartache, and the joys of their lives. While one has a chance encounter on a train that leads to a brief but brilliant friendship, another performs meaningful ballads with her band. A violinist wishes for nothing more than to find a man she can love, and another pines over the one who got away. Each girl, through thick and thin, will feel what it’s like to truly care about someone.
Kita e and Sentimental Journey are episodic collections of stories that revolve around a new girl each time. Generally there's heartache or drama to be found in each tale, though each tends to end up on a happier note. I preferred Kita e, but fans of one may enjoy the other.
In the futuristic city of Neo-Acropolis, eleven girls lead very different lives. Each has a different story to tell shaped by her fears and ambitions, and the small joys and sorrows that make up the formative moments of her life. From a scientific genius who has to face her fear of men, to a young girl who does not want to grow up, to a high school manga author struggling to meet the deadlines, to the intricate relationship between two sisters - the girls come from all walks of life, sharing only the city of Neo-Acropolis, and that mysterious spark that makes their lives so interesting.
Both series are composed by different stories that seem unrelated but end up with a relation between them and a "lesson" to explain it in a way. In both, they explore human feelings from the perspective of different girls who at first seem unrelated but end up having something in common in the end. If you liked one, you'll definately like the other! Still, don't expect just the same anime with just some differences, for each one of them has it's special setting and unique stories!
