At Yamaboshi High, joining a school club is required, so when Himeko, Iori, Taichi, Yoshifumi and Yui couldn't find a suitable choice, they decided to create their own: the School Culture Club! Together, they pass the days meeting and coming up with topics for the group's newspaper – that is, until one day, Yoshifumi and Yui proclaim that they switched bodies last night! Soon after, all five members of the gang find themselves inadvertently swapping at random, with no end in sight. What, or who, caused this supernatural phenomenon?
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.
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.
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.
Tatsuhiro Sato is a university dropout and a "hikikomori" – a person suffering from social withdrawal. To Sato’s dismay, his self-imposed exile from the world is rudely interrupted when a mysterious girl knocks on his door. She has charged herself with the task of curing Sato of his hikikimori ways! 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.
Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
Both of these shows show a group of friends as they learn more about each other, learn more about themselves, and learn how much they need each other's support as they go through various emotionally trying challenges. There is an element of the supernatural that is vital to each story, which helps give these shows a different feel from most school life animes. They have serious moments, humorous moments, and heart-wrenching moments, and if you liked one, you will definitely like the other.
