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 Kimagure Orange Road and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien are love-triangle anime involving a sometimes-aimless young man and two young women who love him. In each series, the young man and two women (one comparatively tough and one comparatively soft) work out how to live their lives as school days pass into young adulthood. Whereas KOR breaks up the romantic tension somewhat with forays into the world of Kasuga Kyosuke's special ESP powers, KimiNozo takes its drama straight-up, neat and without a chaser, focusing on the vertices of the love triangle and occasionally their family and friends. While KOR may sometimes be too silly, in KimiNozo one comes to yearn for the next comedic scene, just to break the tension.

If you've seen KOR all the way through, and seeing KimiNozo for the first time, you'll probably be like me and wonder why KOR's Hiyama Hikaru couldn't have been more like KimiNozo's Suzumiya Haruka. I guess that's what makes the 1980s different from the zeroes, however. Even so, I'd have to say that those who love KOR's romantic interplay would find themselves at home watching KimiNozo, while a KimiNozo fan would probably see precursors of that love triangle in KOR (especially ShinKOR).

Back-and-forth patchwork time travel stories have always intriged me. 

These are both finalizations of thier respective series(well unless they make a sequel) 

Both titles you could watch without seeing the series they are linked to, there is, however, a bit of benifit from seeing the shows they are from. Vanishment more-so.  

Both have a bitersweet vibe, and are a bit touching. If you liked the overall story in one, you might enjoy the other.
