HENNEKO - The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat

HENNEKO - The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat

Rumors tell of a Stony Cat statue that grants a special wish: it will take one of your disliked personality traits and give it to someone in need. Two students arrive at the Stony Cat eager to make a change – Youto, an unabashed pervert, wishes to remove his façade and be able to speak his true feelings, while Tsukiko desires to hide her expressions and be more like an adult. However, little did the pair know that their prayers would be answered in unexpected ways – Youto begins to speak the full, embarrassing truth with brutal honesty, and Tsukiko becomes visually stoic, unable to smile, laugh or cry! To make matters worse, Youto soon runs afoul of the beautiful school idol Azusa, the girl who inherited his unwanted façade. Together, the three slowly become friends while Youto and Tsukiko try to regain what they've lost.

In both of these anime, a group of high school friends gets involved with strange powers, like bodyswitching and wishes coming true. Kokoro Connect is more dramatic, and Hentai Ouji more comedic, but if you like the "high school drama with a twist" setting of one show, you might like the other.

Strange mystical things causes the cast to rethink their relationships.  Also, a lot of comic happenings result with a lot of heart mixed in.  Both shows have a very simular feel and if you like one then you will like the other.

Well they both are about high school students who somehow get involved with supernatural things. However I think Kokoro Connect is more about the drama compared to HENNEKO but I still think that these two animes are pretty similar and if you liked one you should like the other!

Seitokai Yakuindomo

Seitokai Yakuindomo

Once a popular all girls' school, Ousai Private Academy is now co-ed due to declining birth rates. Takatoshi Tsuda, a boy newly attending Ousai solely because of the proximity to his house, is quickly forced to become the student council vice president and male representative of the school by president Shino Amakusa. Now looked upon as nothing more than a filthy pig by his female peers, Takatoshi must cope with learning about a whole new side of the opposite gender, hearing plenty of dirty sex and period jokes along the way!

Both are school life anime aboutd not so normal group of friends and what happens to them. In SY they are in student council, while in school club at KC. Both have calassy sex jokes, though a lot more in SY, and not so classy... Both have a set of funny yet screwed up charachters. If you liked the sense of humor of one go watch the otehr.

Above rec is spot on, just keep in mind that Kokoro has strong supernatural elements which serve to drive along a complex plot, while Yakuindomo is essentially a gag reel.

Now, as new problems ranging from hentai games to internet suicide spring up, can Sato manage to overcome his hermit-like ways, or will the imaginary N.H.K conspiracy force him to remain a hikikomori forever?

Complex relationships with strong, believable characters. Numerous references to very modern undertandings of cultural, sociological, and psychological phenomena. Quite a bit of mindscrew to go around.

I agree with the above recomendation. The only difference is that there are no otaku culture themes present in Kokoro Connect. If you liked Kokoro Connect for how the characters had to face their problems and grow then you may like Welcome to the NHK. Either way, both shows are worth the watch.

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

While the premise of Angel Beats! and Kokoro Connect are different, they both are driven by characters building relationships with each other and working out their past traumas. This is especially true during the first arc of Kokoro Connect. Angel Beats! has more characters and is ultimately a heavier drama than Kokoro Connect, but they have a similar feel to them in terms of character interaction. If you like one, the other is worth checking out.

Frosty007 Frosty007 says...

I totally agree that Angel Beats and Kokoro Connect will attract the same kinds of people. Both shows are about helping people with past traumas. While Angel Beats is a little more extreme than Kokoro Connect (in certain aspects which I won't spoil) both Anime can be easily contrasted.

So if you have enjoyed either Anime, but you haven't seen the respective, then pull up a chair, lay on your bed, or wherver makes you comfortable. Because you're going to be there for awhile. Trust me!

Both of these anime are about a series of strange events (bodyswitching, etc) that occur in a group of close friends. While Natsuiro Kiseki is lighter/more comedic and Kokoro Connect is darker/more dramatic, both amount to testing the strength of friendships through events that should be impossible.

Mephistoph Mephistoph says...

Both are about group of close freinds experiencing supernatural phenomena, Natsuiro takes more comedic turn while Kokoro Connect is more serious, but both shows are great to watch.
