Though the two have very different storylines they both have less mainstream artstyles and use music to put across a very emotive effect.

Both give off a very art-house elegant feel which is suited to viewers who liked one or the other for its unique style. 

In short, if you like the art and music from one - the other is worth a watch too.

These are 2 of the better short films ever made.  Beautiful and artistic animation round out compelling and poignant stories. These are must watch and if you liked one, I'm sure you'll like the other.

Another short, emotionally-charged, dialogue-less anime about ageing/relationships/the passage of time.

Two short, heartwarming and sad tales of a couple who grew old together. If you liked one, you'd definitely appreciate the other, just grab a box of tissues.

Both of these are slow-moving shorts set in a charmingly strange environment where most of the world is water.

Both of these are animated shorts without dialogue. They both have main characters whose stories tug at the heartstrings, and both are a mini "journey of discovery" of sorts, as the viewer comes to an understanding of the characters and the worlds they each inhabit.
