Kimi ga Nozomu Eien

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien

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.

Both the series are lossely connected. In both series there is a similar order of events as well as similar character relations. The main difference is that Natsuiro na Sunadokei puts it's accent on the part which doesn't get the main attention in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien as well as the non-fictional content in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien as opposed to the completely fictional content of Natsuiro na Sunadokei

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Natsuiro no Sunadokei show beautiful love stories, where the characters are not afraid to show love, and they get complicated with the love of a third person that gets in the way. Both animes are heart-warming , although they might make your heart beat faster with anger at times. If you liked one, you should like the other.

You need brains for thse two series! Both are romance stories, though while Air TV is quite a bit more complicated and shows a much higher grade of realism and the feeling it could be real as well as much better animation, Natsuiro na Sunadokei introduces a whole unique concept: time paradoxes. A must see if you love romance series.

Da Capo

Da Capo

On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?

Himitsu

Natsuiro no Sunadokei and Da Capo follow the same feel in the characters and even the use of colour in their art, and they both use supernatural elements of entering a different dimension. Both anime have romance as its genre, but it's just a hunch that I think you'll like this if you liked the other. Da Capo inputs more school life, and much more female characters. Natsuiro no Sunadokei has the interesting concept of time travel. Da Capo has beautiful colours.

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

Yuichi is a teenage boy who was diagnosed with hepatitis; and as staying at the hospital is boring, he often sneaks out at night to hang out with his friends. However, each time he is caught by the slightly sadistic nurse Akiko, he just prolongs his stay at the hospital. After his most recent escape, instead of striking a punch or kick at Yuichi, Akiko says that she'll overlook his sneak outs if he becomes friends with 17-year-old Rika, another hospital resident. Rika doesn't open up to him at first, but she has her reasons: she has a weak heart; and though she may come off as selfish and rude, Yuichi looks beyond the surface to help both of them enjoy what life has to offer.

Natsuiro no Sunadokei and Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora are oneshot OVA's with very lighthearted romantic premises. If you're looking for a fluffy, shojo anime to watch on a rainy afternoon, try Natsuiro no Sunadokei or Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora.

Mizuiro

Mizuiro

As children, Ken, Yuki, and Hiyori were the best of friends. But like a flash, the companions were torn apart when Hiyori mysteriously vanished without warning. Now, as young adults, Ken and Yuki are in for a surprise when Hiyori returns, but in a manner that they would never think to expect -- falling out of Ken's closet? And what's worse is that she appears to be a ghost! Armed with newfound curiosity, the trio try to remember what happened in their past, and why their long-lost friend has suddenly reappeared...

Mizuiro definitely doesn't have the sci fi appeal that Natsuiro has, but both are interesting looks at relationships, in a unique way.
