Summer break is now over; the second semester has started for Tomoya, Nagisa and the others, and little has changed. Since Tomoya's relationship with his father is still troubled, he continues to live with Nagisa and her family, even if it means getting roped into organizing a baseball team for the family bakery. Life at school continues as normal with Sunohara as carefree as ever; however, when his sister Mei voices her concerns about him, the series of events that follow place a strain on Sunohara and Tomoya’s friendship. Whether it's saving a person from themselves or passing on a message from the past, one thing’s for sure: no matter how tough things get, good friends will always be there to help out.
While not entirely similar, as there is a splash more comedy in Kobato, they both work very well on the emotional level. These two animes sag in some areas, but really pull the strings taut in the final act and deliver a wonderful experience.
A bit more dark in tone, however I strongly recommend Clannad if you like your stories with a hint of sorrow and a cup of sweetness. With a satisfying finish.
Each of these series have similar endings. On top of that they have some similar comedy (although Kobato has more of it) and are very close in terms of how they effect the viewer emotionally.
Both of these anime's had characters that you couldn't help but fall in love with and the stories take you on an up and down rolercoster ride of emotions: both happy, sad, and/or tragic. The story lines of these anime seem to drag you in and are very good animes to watch. While Clannad After Story has more going on Kobato will keep you questioning, what's really going on? untill the very end. If you have watched one with out having seen the other I'm sure you will be missing out on a good watch... although Kobato's storyline pace is a bit slower
Both Kobato and Clannad After Story share a common atmosphere (albeit Kobato having more comedy) and ending. The male leads of both animes are brooding in a way, complimenting a cheerful, loveable female counterpart. The theme of touching people's lives also come into play.
And of course, they are similarly polished when it comes to animation.
Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?
I watched CCS first and to me, it's still the top story that CLAMP's created. It's a very stereotypical story about a magical girl and her episodic adventures, but CCS stands out in the way it's told, the character development and how the romance shines in the second half.
Kobato is exactly the same. The beginning is cliche and boring to some people, but the ride is worthwhile because it deals with real scenarios with realistic solutions and feelings. I loved how Kobato and Sakura's personalities reminded me of each other ^^ They're both too perfect and care too much about others.
CLAMP really does love their absurdly innocent/naive/adorable female protagonists, don't they? Kobato and Sakura are impossible to dislike, as are the series they star in. Both are refreshingly sweet and simple, and, though they take a while to grow on you, rather enjoyable and heartwarming.
Ah yes, for all those who love Shojo, Clamp will always be a group of goddesses. Kobato and Cardcaptor Sakura are two of the most innocent animes that Clamp has created and both of them are very similar to each other.
Let us start with the cast. The main characters (Kobato and Sakura) are incredibly purehearted, laugh and smile at everything, give their best at everything they do, always try to help people, are both a little dense and lack common sense. They both meet a grumpy who warms up thanks to the main character's kindness and ends up with the main character.
Then there's the stuffed animal that accompanies and guides the main character. Although their personalities are rather different, they both love to eat and learn to love the main character.
Also, both animes involve magic and both main characters don't really understand the magic, which mostly has to do with the main character who has forgotten something important. Therefore, there is a bit of a mystery part that stays there until the very end.
I could state a lot more similarities, but then, I would spoil too much and sit here until the next day. So let me just say this; both anime's have a comedic and romantic feel to it and both are insanely cute. If you like one, you will most definetely like the other.
I've only watched the first episode so far, and I'm already reminded of CCS constantly. A clumsy but adorable female protagnist; a stuffed-animal-like guardian that guides her on her adventures; a calm, older brother figure (who even looks like Touya); and a question to collect something magical (in this case, heart pieces).
Kobato seems somewhat less child-oriented, but otherwise, there are quite similar.
The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country. As a result, Sakura's memories are scattered to different dimensions, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...
Both being by clamp, they have similar art styles, similar voice actors, and even similar elements to the background of the series (both going around collecting something in order to fulfill a wish).
Both are very similar with their characters and style very similar. Both are also very funny as well as sweet.
I really enjoy watching series that has a person who will do everything in its power to help another person. Both series deals with the hardship that theperson has to face to help their beloved one. Makes you wanna belive in humanity once again. The fun thing is that these two series even cross paths at one episode :)
Neo Venezia, the pride of planet Aqua, is a quaint city filled with canals and easy-going people. Many companies operate their gondolas on the canals, giving tours to tourists and locals alike, but the most famous of them is the Aria Company. Follow the adventures of Aria's young apprentice, Akari, as she learns the tricks of the trade from her beautiful senior, Alicia. Together with her friends Aika and Alice, apprentices of rival companies, and their seniors Akira and Athena, they train their skills as gondoliers, meeting new people and learning new things about the city each day.
Both these series overlay slice-of-life stories and artistically inspiring locales. They each have supernatural elements, but these elements aremore of a story telling and flavoring devices rather than a main focus. The true focus is on the heroines of each story, both of which share many traits - kind, warm-hearted, hard working, and people lovers - who do their very best to share the beauty they see all around them with others. In doing so, they attract and befriend the supernatural forces that silently watch over them.
Both are great watches for people who want to watch a series that makes you feel good. The women in the series are drawn beautifully without need of needless ecchi moments. Soundtracks are great and both series compliment each other.

In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
Not only are both anime series created by CLAMP but both are of the same genres. Both female heroines in each anime are a mystery for the majority of the anime and each character has secrets involved in their past which you won't see coming when their revealed. If you loved one your sure to enjoy the other.
In both cases the original manga was created by CLAMP. Not only does the setting and story feel very similar but there are lots of crossover-characters those shows share. Also both female leads are ahoge and search for their identity. Chobits is slightly more ecchi and funny but if you like that give it a try.
