Looking for romantic stories and different peoples problems? Just like Kite-he, Boys be got short stories but it just deal with the persons in a group of friends. So this actually have a conection between the stories. I'm really sure you're gonna like this one if you liked Kite-he, so be sure to check it out.
Kita-he and Boys Be are so similar it's staggering. Granted, Kita-he isn't completely focused on the concept of love like Boys Be is, but they still have a remarkably similar feel as far as how the stories are told (seperate, but still interconnected stories), the feelings that are conveyed as people grow and change in a positive way, whether the outcome was actually good or bad.. just everything. I am almost 100% positive that you'd like one if you liked the other.. there's just no way you wouldn't!
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.
Though "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien" is a series that functions as one continous whole, and "Kita-he" is an anthology of connected short stories, the two anime have a lot of common ground. There is the romance element, of course, and all the trivial common details that are elements of the Japanese culture's romantic imagery (including the tragically bedridden beauty, locked in a hospital pining for love). But there is also a more fundamental common factor, namely the element of hope. In "Kita-he", the quest is for the redemptive love that is represented by the diamond dust. In "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien", the quest is to redeem the petty wrongdoings and unavoidable sins that accompany the human condition.
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.
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!
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.
Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!
While both plots are completely different this is more a gut recommendation for the feeling you will get while watching either of these anime. They take simple things and turn them into bonding experiences among the cast members. In Kita e ~Diamond Dust Drops~ it tells episodic tales of a legend about Diamond Dust where in Sora no Manimani it takes the stars and constellations club at school. All characters show great interest in either of the tales and leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside as the viewer. Check out one if you liked the other
