If life teaches us anything, it is that love sometimes happens in the most unlikely of places, with the most unlikely of people. Koshiro is a run-of-the-mill salaryman who has recently been dumped by his partner. With his heart broken and hope lost, he soon comes to realize that he can love again, once he sets eyes on a beautiful young schoolgirl riding the train. However, there is one catch -- this girl named Nanoka is his sister, who he has not seen in years. Knowing that their forbidden love will always be scrutinized by society; will Koushirou and Nanoka be able to resist the temptation?
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.
Both Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Koi Kaze depict realistic relationships. While Kimi ga Nozomu Eien centers upon a love triangle, Koi Kaze centers upon the taboo relationship between a brother and sister. Although Koi Kaze is not sad like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, it still feels like a semi-tragic, enthralling story told from the heart. If you liked Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, and like realistic anime, you should give Koi Kaze a try.
Koi Kaze and Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien have very much in common. There is an ethical problem in both, and their storylines are well written, so that they lack an obvious "best solution". Also, both share a melancholic atmosphere. If you liked one of them, you mustn't miss the other one.
These are both romantic drama's with a realistic feeling to it. They are both about a strong, but frowned upon love, the way the main character deals with his inner conflicts and the way the people judge them. If you liked of these, you will without doubt like the other.
Both series show the sober side of romances and the guilt there can be. If you like one you will like the other since both have a well thought out story.
The characters of Koi Kaze and Kimi ga Nozume Eien are thrown into the chaos of uncertainty making you want to hold your breath until the very end. The fears of an uncertain love and how the other person might feel towards you are displayed in each series taking a real level feeling to a whole new level.
Both have a melancholic feel throughout, and deal with the guilt of forbidden love. They both end in a fairly similar way. They both have a feeling of maturity, and contain no supernatural elements. Koi kaze is more controversial in what it deals with, but the response of the surrounding characters, to the main characters relationships is quite similar in both series. However Rumbling hearts deals with the jealousy and betrayal of another girl, wheras Koi kaze is more betrayal of societies norms and parents. Both are great Anime's and worth watching, especially if you liked one, watch the other!
Yori Yuki has loved his twin sister ever since he can remember. While his parents brushed it off as a child’s fantasy, he always knew it was true love; but because it is incest, taboo, a forbidden love, he did his best to eliminate those feelings. 15 years have gone by and his feelings never wavered; in fact, they have grown stronger. He’s watched his sister Iku grow up and become a beautiful woman, and now, he can no longer contain his feelings – Yori confesses. Yet even if Iku reciprocates his feelings, that doesn’t change the fact that they’re brother and sister. Can forbidden love last?
I was never a fan of "incest" anime, but after the interesting summaries and reviews I've read, I gave Koi Kaze a try. It wasn't exactly my cup of tea to be honest, it wasn't much of the fact that it was incest... I think the only thing that bothered me was the fact that they were 12 years apart!!
However, I gave Boku wa Imouto a try just one month later... I felt that even though Koi Kaze wasn't the best, at least Yuri and Iku were twins. I'm VERY glad I decided to watch it too! I definitely recommend Boku over Koi Kaze!! They do have the whole "incest" theme in common... the whole idea of "forbidden love", but unlike Koi Kaze, I could relate to the characters more in Boku.
I felt that Boku had more defined characters... the plot actually PROGRESSED and I give a lot of props to Yuri for stepping up and admitting his love to his sister instead of hiding it and running away. Therefore, if you enjoyed Koi Kaze, I believe that Boku will DEFINTELY make your day even better. I loved it tons more and the subject of incest doesn't seem to phase me anymore =)
Koi Kaze and Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru are an obvious match. Not only do they both deal with the same tricky and potentially controversially the subject matter, that of incest, as they approach it in a sober, thoughtful manner that pulls at the heartstrings. Both are realistic and do not use fanservice, these anime are all about the emotional reaction of these characters who find themselves in a compromising situation.
Aside from the obvious fact that they are both based on incest, they both have a similar atmosphere. Both seem realistic, although probably not relatable, and they carry a bittersweet tone to them. There's the happiness of always being with the one they love, yet the cruelty that surrounds a forbidden love. And of course, both make attempts at avoiding reality. If you liked Koi Kaze, there's a chance you might like Boku was ni Imoto ni Koi o Suru just as well.
Koi Kaze and Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru are two of a kind.In both of them we a love relationship between blood related siblings, both of them have a very well developed realistic aspect and the most obvious thing both of them are based on an incest aspect, the happiness of having the one you love near you and the cruelty of a forbidden love.If you like Koi Kaze you might like Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru as well or vice-versa.
Koi Kaze and Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru can go hand in hand with each other. They both involve the forbidden relationship between a brother and sister and their struggle in trying to figure out how to be together in the end and make it work.
Shuichi Nitori is about to start middle school with a terrible secret: he wishes he were a girl and likes wearing their clothes. With the right outfit and his cute, effeminate looks, he is often able to convince people that he is someone else - or even something else. Unfortunately, although his best friend and object of affection, Takatsuki, accepts him as he is, she does not return Shuichi’s feelings. Moreover, school is an unforgiving place and Shuichi walks a fine line between liberating his true self and being labelled a freak by all his peers...
If you enjoyed Koi Kaze or Hourou Musuko, I think you'd like the other as well. What struck me about them was how deftly and realistically both series handled a common core; the process of coming to accept a personal identity that other people reject as wrong or immoral.
Koi Kaze did this with love between siblings, and Hourou Musuko is doing it with a boy who feels like he should be a girl, and a girl who feels like she should be a boy.
These two series capture both the internal and the external conflicts the characters experience in a very believable way, focusing on their development and resolution.
Both anime tackle different taboo subjects (incest and gender identity) in a realistic and delicate way. They focus on the characters' lives and their emotional struggle to accept themselves and get others to accept them. In both series the animation/art is soft and beautiful, and the writing is subtle and complex at the same time.
Slow-paced, thoughtful, and a little angst from taboo situations - with a subdued animation style; if you found these elements pleasing in one of these shows then the other might be right up your alley.
Transexuality and incest; two topics that, whenever used in anime, tend to be "humoristically" depicted. In Koi Kaze and Wandering Son, however, the subjects are explored in incredibly serious and mature manners, turning both shows into must-sees for those who've grown tired of the kind of shows previously mentioned.
In the not-so-distant future, mankind is at war with itself. The lives of Chise and Shuu are torn apart when Chise is chosen to become the ultimate weapon to fight for Japan against their enemies. Death, sadness, and the hardships of love accompany Sai Kano in its grim look at war and its consequences.
Both series involve a story about an "impossible" love. In each, their love is restrained by society: One by war, the other by prejudice. They also both have a really sad mood, and will probably make you cry. If you liked one, you'd surely like the other as well.
Each of these series are melancholic stories about impossible romances, predominantly from the point of view of the male. On the surface the series may appear to be quite different - Saikano is about a woman turned into a weapon, and Koi Kaze is about incest. But both are very similar tonally, focusing on slice-of-life elements and interactions between the main characters. The art style is very similar in each.
Saikano and Koi Kaze are both very emotional romantic drama's. They really succeed in making you feel for the characters as they pursue their impossible love. If you loved one of these drama gems, make sure not to miss out on the other!
Apparently both Koi Kaze and Saikano seem different, Saikano is about a female protagonist which happens to be a weapon used by the military in a war while in Koi Kaze its all about a incestuous relationship. But even so both have some things in common, both shows revolve around impossible, forbidden love relationships from the males view and also both of them have a really sad, melancholic mood which really moves your heart. If you loved one of this dramatic shows then be sure to check the other one as well.
On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?
You will like both Koi Kaze and Da Capo if you like their romantic atmosphere, although they don't have much in common. Da Capo has many humorous scenes, lots of ecchi, and there are supernatural forces working. The male protagonist is surrounded by many girls who all fall in love with him, it's up to him who he chooses. Koi Kaze, however, has a rather melancholic atmosphere. There are no humorous scenes, no ecchi and no supernatural elements, and the male progagonist is not a Don Juan, either. If you liked one of them, I recommend the other one if it is the romantic line that you liked.
Both Koi Kaze and Da Capo deal with a relationship between a pair of siblings. Though Jun'ichi and Nemu in Da Capo are only related through adoption, the idea they have lived most of their lives as siblings brings the point into play. Koi Kaze has more of the gloomy side with self guilt and coming to truly understand the way the relationship effects those around them and their friends. Both have comedic moments, though Da Capo focuses more on this. Koi Kaze is a far more real story, but Da Capo is believable in a similar right. I think that if you Liked Koi Kaze you would enjoy Da Capo. Check it out!
