It's a strange recommendation, I realize, but in my opinion Nana and Chobits have kind of the same humor and are both very dramatic. While Chobits isn't as in depth as Nana, I'm sure you'll enjoy both of them anyways!

So many anime series are still sticking to the tried and tested shoujo fairy tail stories. What I liked about Nana and Rec is that they are more of a modern day shoujo tale.

People fall in love, people fall out of love. It never runs smooth and in that idealistic way its portrayed on the big screen.

The ebb and flow of Nana and Rec are very similar, and will probably both break your heart as true love is not realised in a simple way. Both shows are for a more mature audience, and I would recommend they be watched to their full potential by someone who has been or currently is in love ^^

Read or Die

Secret agent for the British Libraries, Yomiko Readman, has an infatuation with books. When she purchases one of the books that contain the notes for a plan to purge the world of humanity, Yomiko (along with the help of Ms. Deep and Drake) uses her powers of paper manipulation to stop a group of resurrected men from fulfilling the plan.

Both anime are about a strong relationship between two women who are very different from each other. And has lesbian undertones.

Platonic Chain

Platonic Chain

Platonic Chain consists of short 6 minute episodes completely done with computer graphics. The series explores different facets of human life/interaction through an interesting idea: the presence of a computer program that knows of your most embarassing moments, your likes and dislikes, your ideal diet plan, the routes you take to get places, and more!

Life never runs smoothly when you're in your mid teens and living in a city. There are boys to consider, your future and friends who have issues of their own. Although Platonic Chain and Nana are dissimilar on the surface, the underlying story of young naive girls moving in the wide world is what underpins them both.

If you enjoy a good romantic drama, I think you will enjoy both of these shows.

Antique Bakery

Antique Bakery

Tachibana has recently quit his job at a high-class firm, and for unknown reasons, decides to open a bakery. His first employee is Ono, an extremely talented patissier who is also known as the 'Gay of demonic charm' - something that has caused him to lose his job countless times. Joining the crew also is Eiji - a retired champion boxer - who is hired on the spot as only a trainee purely because he is not Ono's 'type.' However, Chikage, the bumbling childhood friend and shadow of Tachibana, is exactly his type! Now, with the shop finally open, everyone seems to be filling their positions well; but one question remains: what were Tachibana's motives for opening the bakery, and does it have a link to his troubled and forgotten past?

Two very disprate shows will definitely appeal to the same type of fans. Nana had the dramatic feel of an over the top tv soap, whilst Antique Bakery spends little time on the shounen-ai and more on the development of friendships. If you like to sit back and enjoy two slower paced, emotional filled rides where you feel like you befriend the charming characters, then I highly recommend both of these shows to you.
