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.

Aranneas Aranneas says...

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.

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.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!

Both anime are about a group of highschoolers who have a lot of personal problems/inner turmoil and form a club together and with each other's support they overcome many of their issues and grow as a person.

Hecadoth Hecadoth says...

There are many similarities displayed in both anime, mainly the oblivious hero which attract a lot of girls, the school club activities and my favourite of all, the tsundere character that constantly trying to win the heart of the main character. You'll definitely love both.

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.
