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...
Myself; Yourself and Clannad are both school romances. Myself; Yourself is more dramatic and darker than Clannad, although they both have similar types of character personalities. Clannad is more on the supernatural side of a student life whereas Myself; Yourself has a more realistic feeling to it with very in depth emotional problems having to be faced by the main characters. Even though Myself; Yourself seems like a lighthearted mini drama, there are heavy issues expressed.
In both anime there is some secret, which everyone are partly aware of but no one would ever speak of. Through the series, we follow main characters changing and getting closer to the answers they long to dicover. Both Myself; Yourself and Clannad are about high schoolers' every-day life filled with really hard problems and emotional issues.
in myself yourself and clannad there are a lot of comedy factors a high school life with 5-6 people they both gradually becomes more and more dramatic romance factor applies both of them so if you like clannad or myself yourself you should try the other you wont regret it at all
If you liked how Myself; Yourself told its story through a group of friends, and the way they dealt with each characters problems, I'd really recommend you give Clannad a try. It contains actual comedy (instead of a failed attempt at such, yes Aoi-san, I'm looking at you), good character progression and better drama. To top it off, Clannad also has a great second season full of good drama in which the romance between the main characters is fleshed out a lot better than in Myself; Yourself.
If you liked the love story in Myself; Yourself, but want a story that is less depressing, then Clannad would be a good way to go.
Shinichiro Nakagami is an everyday high school student, with the exception of having his beautiful and athletic childhood friend Hiromi Yuasa living in his household after the death of her parents. Unfortunately, their relationship is cold at best - Shinichiro can tell that she is suffering, but she acts coldly and distant from her foster family and so he is unable to help ease her sadness. His family is also forcing him to practice a traditional Japanese dance that does not interest him, adding to his frustration. On top of that, he is cursed to misfortune by another girl in school, the eccentric Noe Isurugi. Shinichiro juggles all of these problems on a day-to-day basis as he learns about love and the sadness of those around him.
What those two share in common is the girl who has deep emotional problems and boy who loves her and tries to help. Both anime are set in high school within group of good childhood friends.
Both True Tears and Myself; Yourself are romantic dramas (at their core) that prominently feature a childhood friend who is now cold to the male lead as a result of circumstances. However, Myself; Yourself does not generate its drama with a love triangle, unlike True Tears. Its drama is less relationship-driven and more plot-driven. Also, Myself; Yourself has elements of a romantic comedy and sports a fair amount of fanservice towards the beginning of the show.
Like most love polygons, Myself; Yourself shows and reflects the sadder side the Romance Genre. The main characters and sub characters interactions are quite similar to ToraDora! as well as True Tears. Especially if your looking for that school life drama.
Both animes characters face some kind of personal troubles and romance as well. I like Myself; Yourself more but they both have many similarities.
The realistic high school setting of Myself; Yourself and True Tears emphasizes with the main characters facing many trials and tribulations trying to find the path that fits them the best and become the person that they wanted to be.
Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka. But amidst the beautiful budding relationship, tragedy strikes when an accident occurs, turning Narumi’s life upside-down. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.
Very similar settings, KgNE is more focused upon Romance, and also is more substantial compared to Myself; Yourself, which was its weak point. Where Myself; Yourself keeps you just watching, Kimi ga Nozumu Eien keeps your gripped and wanting to know whats going to happen in the next episode constantly - so your going to want to see this after Myself; Yourself, and (should) really enjoy it!
Very good anime ... Both are about love and some dramatic situation in the past ... Main characters are similar and its very good if u watched Myself Yourself u won't be dissapointed about Kima Ga Nozomu Eien Im recommending this anime cause its realy good. Dramatic action is very interesting
I highly recommend Rumbling hearts to fans of Myself;Yourself (vice versa) because both shows ring true to the Drama and Romance genre. There is a HUGE emphasis on trauma brought from past tragedies and it greatly affects the flow of the story. The main protagonists carry deep scars which they try to slowly heal through learning to love and care for someone. Rumbling Hearts and Myself;Yourself can both be considered a bit 'darker' than other shows of the same genre depending on your view of which sins/offenses are horrible. The main protagonists in both shows face off a very huge hurdle which they must get past in order to provide realism and depth to the plot.
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
They both have simple yet witty entertainment, along with characters the have suffered a harshed pass making them into what they are today. As they struggle together to help each other out with the problems that face them. Both have very similar excellent endings. Story wise they are almost one in the same, of course completely different worlds set them apart.
If you liked Myself; Yourself, you really should watch Angel Beats. A lot of drama's and tear bringing stuff.
Kazuma and his little brother Ayumu have arrived at the countryside, eager to begin a new life at the Yorozuyo Inn – a place that Kazuma once visited as a child. There's fresh air, running water and relaxation – a perfect place for the sickly Ayumu to recover. But the pair's arrival is anything but uneventful, what with getting lost, Kazuma meeting and accidentally kissing the lovely Ui in the woods, and enraging her protective friend Ibuki in the process! Now, with a less than ideal first impression on his new classmates and more beautiful women popping up around him each day, Kazuma certainly has his hands full with misunderstandings and budding romances!
Both shows have the same initial setting: the protagonist lived in a village before having to move away to a city, and has to move back for various reasons. They also have a childhood friend that they initially forget/don't recognise.
However, Myself;Yourself has a bigger focus on drama, while Hoshizora focuses on comedy.
Not blazing any new trails for either. But both are very heartwarming and have their own quirks that make them enjoyable to watch.
