There are harrowing occurrences in each Myself; Yourself and H2O with the same type of set up of a light comedy in the beginning followed by a sudden twist of fate revealing the tragic past of a main character.

shanachan

Both guys get in a new place. They get to know everyone yet they get interested in just one girl because that girl is always "angry" (both blue-haired XD). I liked both, yet Myself; Yourself, a lot more.

worosei

Both are about the male lead entering a 'new' place that he has some tie to and how he establishes himself in town.

Each character have their own internal problems, and each series become decidely darker towards the end, with a bizare emotional roller coaster where you want to laugh, strangle some characters, feel for others, puzzle over plot changes, but find both a decent watch.

The female leads also are similar; they have a cold demenour yet are apparently very cabable. It comes down to the male lead to help wean the female out of her shell.

Merryberry

With the arrival of a new person into the village and the subsequent ripples they send out, affecting not only their friends but everyone else, is just one of the many, many similiarities that these series share. The rescuing of an individual from their somewhat bleak situation is another theme common to both. It would seem that thse two anime are so similiar that actually you might as well watch both at once since you'd enjoy them equally the same!

fizrox

We met here with copule of friends - each of them having dark past and difficult problems that they cannot solve ont heir own. Those two anime are both about changing one's lifes with friends' help and dealing with unwanted feelings or psychological issues.

xkub4

There is really stron conjunction between those two animes. You can find drama thread in Myself and Footprints. Main characters - male and female have been sorely reached by tragedy. There is also romance between male and female main characters in both.

I think that you'll like Myself if you enioyed h2o, and you'll also like h2o, if you liked myself.

Pendevous

Between these two animes, the most obvious one that we can see is a guy struggling to get used to his new society. Moreover, both presents light comedy and a touch of angst, as well as heavy drama as the series progresses on.

The ending of both animes are also just perfect.

ciller

The same kind of drama, the same kind of romance and the same kind of angry blue-haired girl. That is the connection between Myself; and H2O. Both of them are very slice of life even if H2O has miracles in it, it's still not very important to the story. When I watched the first episode of H2O it immediately reminded me of Myself; this is als because the drawing style is quite the same.

Well if think you should just watch it because the rest is not very explainable so just watch it. And you just can watch it because you always will love the other one if you loved one of them.

jypsyjulia

Myself; Yourself and H20:Footprints in the Sand are both harem animes that move in nearly the same pacing.  They bring a psychological twist to the genre and leave the viewer shocked.  If you liked one, I highly suggest you check out the other.

Bramblestar

Both have a melancholy feel and a few key plot twists. If you liked the progression of the story in one, you'll like the other.

Am3n

It is realy great anime. Both have similar story line. But i think Myself;yourself is better in story line.

Archmage

Both these (in my opinion) great animes share many (though small) touches that give them the same kind of atmosphere; on one hand you have in "Myself; Yourself" Nanaka who is quite cold to the main character Sana, on a similar note in "H2O ~footprints in the sand~" you have Hayami who also gives our main charatic a rejecting attitude.

This is also followed by the secondary characters in both, where they don't really interact (H2O, yes they do interact but not in a friendly manner, not in the way I’m referring to) and are very separate but the main character will not have this outrage and tries to bring everyone together.

Insanity ensues, good day Sir… or Madam.

Kai777

The plot is similar, it is scary. I liked the ending of both the animes. I liked Myself Youself better because of the voilin song.

School Days

School Days

When Makoto saw Kotonoha on the train one day, he fell in love at first sight. Luckily, his classmate Sekai’s nosy personality ensures him an introduction to his crush, and soon the two begin to date. However, Kotonoha isn’t the only one with eyes for Makoto - a fact that any horny teenager would be delighted with. With endless temptations, lies and heartbreak at every turn, Makoto and Kotonoha’s relationship will soon be put to the ultimate test...

Myself;Yourself and School Days both have, lies, deceit, blood, and secrets. So much happens in these series that you are left wanting more. The overly happy mood in the early episodes of each series really does foreshadow the darker things to come. Will the anime end with your favorite lead character dead or alive?

vick01

Both of the series story lines revolve around the characters having serious problems and secrets. Both of the series have a more mature theme to them and contains blood in the series. However, both of the series are done in a way where you get attached to the characters and get you get sucked into the story lines. both of theses series will leave you wanting more when the conclude, you will enjoy one if you liked the other.

Sheex

Myself; Yourself de-emphasizes the romantic focus present in School Days, but still manages to touch upon similar themes. Each presents an apparantly innocent, sugar-coated view of youth, but follows shortly with a dark, sinister breakdown of these ideas as nothing more than fantasy. With both packed full of bleak, ominous drama, if you watch and enjoy one be sure to check out the other.

caitlin

Both Myself; Yourself and School Days begin with a light hearted, pleasant feel, giving the impression that it is going to be a sweet, romantic view on the 'springtime of youth', but that image begins to deteriorate as both begin to focus more on the darker side of human interactions, and growing up. Both anime feature lies, secrets, and themes such as murder and suicide, making both a deceptive, dark watch, in the end. If you enjoyed one you will surely enjoy the other!

Senseito

Similar genre of anime, except School Days is executed much better, if you liked Myself; Yourself you should enjoy School Days, but, you might not, seeing how many people are critical concerning how the story works out - but its arguably comparable to Kimi ga Nozumu Eien. Keeping to the point, where School Days holds its strong point is in substance compared to Myself; Yourself, and both are set about some similar themes, so if you enjoy this, theres a very good chance you'll like School Days

risuta

Both School Days and Myself; Yourself, are anime about school life, relationships, tragedy and life in general. They both are a lot deeper then they seem, and go much further than the "everything blooms" stereotype that we often see in simillar anime. If you liked one of them, I defenitely suggest you watch the other one, too.

wolfangel87

I think that School Days and Myself; Yourself had similar animation styles with some of the characters being similar in personality, although School Days is a much darker anime than Myself; Yourself. They also share a sense of secretism throughout. It is very easy to get wrapped up in the main characters lives and the sense of reality in each series.

bobjoe

Although the ways in which the characters deal with their situations is very different between these two anime, the themes are still very much the same. In each, the main character must deal with a love triangle situation, while much darker adult themes simmer in the background, eventually boiling over and being exposed.

Omurqi

While the themes of Myself; Yourself and School Days aren't 1:1 copies of each other, both series take a shift from innocent to messed up at some point. School Days certainly has more shock value, and Myself; Yourself more touching drama, but both treat subjects that are often avoided by other shows. If you enjoyed the style of storytelling in one of these shows, give the other one a shot!

eaper

Both of these series start off, more or less, as the average school love story, but do a decent job adding a sense of what would probably have to be called crazy into some of the main heroines. This sets them apart from most of the other series in this genre.

triplestrike

School Days and Myself; Yourself have very different protagonists but the actions and deeper subject matter that gets revealed is prevelant in both.

In both series there is a boy returning to his old friends and finding himself not knowing the whole truth about them. These anime are both about trying to rescue the loved one from danger waiting for her.

MariJine

Returning to a town you once knew and meeting your childhood friends is the predominant theme in both Kanon and Myself, Yourself. Viewers follow the daily lives of Yuichi and Sana respectively as they unlock their own memories of the past as well as those of others around them. Filled with mystery, suspense, tragedy, humour and realistic situations, both anime are highly recommended!

eaper

Each of these series have some love stories going on, but do a good job adding something different from what the standard of this genre usually entails.

Omurqi

Kanon (2006) and Myself; Yourself are both romance / drama anime that, instead of just focussing on the main couple, spends the majority of the time looking into the problems of side characters. If you liked how the different mini-stories got wrapped up in one of these shows, you will most likely enjoy them in the other as well.

ali3n

In both series, Kanon and Myself; Yourself, memories of the past guides main character back to the place from his childhood, where he once again meets his friends. Unfortunately, those memories aren't complete, and that's the problem he is trying to solve during the story. Step by step, with help from friends, he discovers new things about his and others past. If you enjoyed one of those series and if you really like mixed romance and drama plot, I would recommend you watching the other one too.

VergelAnimeFan

Both Myself; Yourself and Kanin share the same theme of someone who lived in a town who had to leave for some years comes back to the town once again. They also get reaquainted with other people.  They also have teenage characters. Both have food graphics and good episodes.

dBo0i

Both stories, follows a protagonist that is returning to a town from their past where friends wait for them. Both stories involve romance with one of the friends from the past.

jimstr

Both animes start off with the main protagnist returning to their childhood and meet old friends as well as meeting new people. The people the protagnist meets; all have underlying emotions and secrets that are below the surface and they all seem to root from the past. In addition the main characters constantly reflect on their past childhood in order to solve the problems in the present.

Both have good comedic relief and also have intense emotional moments that help drive the story forward.

BaaKaSenpi191

ef - a tale of memories

In a high school setting, there are many people whose stories must be told: Hiro, an aspiring manga artist whose view of the world is "missing a certain color," according to himself; his childhood friend Kei, who is vying for his attention; Kyosuke, a photographer and cameraman who seeks to capture true emotion in his work; the ever-cheerful Miyako, who meets Hiro by chance and immediately becomes attached to him; the gentle Renji, unsure of his aspirations to become a novelist; and Kei's mysterious and quiet sister Chihiro, who seems to be a different person every day. As time passes and they interact with one another more, their paths increasingly intertwine as shades of regrettable pasts emerge.

Both originally aired around the same time. They are darker romances with characters having a much grimmer backdrop/personality than other visual-novel cum anime characters. They explore multiple relationships and difficulties that arises whilst including the theme of memories. Both, however, ends on a postive note.

Merryberry

While the stories explore two differing concepts, the general relationship between these two series are similiar and makes it possible for you to enjoy both of them. The relationship seen between the characters are key to opening up the connection between them and both do this in a way that is both easy to view and enjoyable. Well worth watching.

fizrox

We all have all sorts of problems, some tougher then others. But not always can we find the person able to help us, sometimes we simply don't want to. Here are two stories that carry heavy emotional aura, but give hope as well. In these manner, they are the same, so if this is what you have been looking for, don't hestitate.

LLORAtheLLAMA

Both of these series focus on characters and their relationships. They have drama, comedy, and romance in both; though ef - a tale of memories is a big step up from Myself; Yourself.

If you've seen ef and want to bring the dial down, Myself; Yourself is a good show to watch.

stingreis

Both of these anime's have a lot of romance in them, and are very dark, and deep. They are full of sadness, and heartache, yet have a moving storyline. If you like either of these anime's then you are sure to like the other.

eaper

Each of these series follow lead females with extremely spotted pasts, in each case one of which have some sort of memory loss (although it is much more series in ef's part).

Those two anime show boy who helps girl to overcome her emotional problems and tries to resue her from tough situation. Both series are peaceful, with days of pure joy and indescriable sadness. If you liked one, you will definetely enjoy another.

stingreis

Air is slow paced, and akward, whereas Myself; yourself has a lot going on in it. Still they are both based on a strange romance and have a bunch of random sadness and sorrow that the characters struggle with.

eaper

These series each have a rather slow start, having a completely different story after the first few episodes. Also, the lead male and female in each have a similar relationship, with the male attempting to help fix a major emotional type problem experienced by the female.

Omurqi

Both Air and Myself; Yourself are romance / drama anime where for a long while the romance takes a backseat, and the story lays the focus in solving the problems of multiple side-characters. If you liked this multi-"route" approach in one, you'll enjoy seeing the same in the other.

jypsyjulia

Myself; Yourself and AIR are both atypical harem anime's.  Both animes have a slow, melancholic feel to them that leaves the fewer full of nostalgia during the anime and satisfied in the end.  They have a slow pace and are character-centered anime's.  If you liked one, you're bound to like the other.
