Both anime have similar plot: girl meets the most popular and handsome boy in school, hates him, falls in love with him and then they start dating. Also in both anime the boy’s past haunts the relationship. The two main differences are the animation, and the fact that Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu is a 2 episode OVA, while Bokura ga Ita is 26 episodes. But if you liked this OVA and/or the manga give this show a try.
