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!

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.

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.

Both anime are about the members of a school club and their encounters with the supernatural and their personal growth through the support of eachother.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

So both of these anime involve a supernatural thing (yeah great description), well these anime are both around a group of teenagers who all belong to the same club and got caught up in supernatural occurances. Also some of the  characters are quite similar in personalities. The bonds between each character clearly grows as the series go on(in both) so in this way they are quite similar. So I think if you liked one you should check out the other.
