Maiku Kamishiro has always had a photo of himself as a child in front of an old house with a young girl. One day after spotting the building in a news report, the high school boy moves to the countryside to live in the house from the picture. While living alone, making ends meet by working as a freelance programmer, Maiku gets the shock of his life when not one, but two girls turn up on his doorstep claiming to be his twin sister! With the lively Miina and timid Karen both possessing the same photograph, the pair begins living with the confused Maiku as they try to figure out which one of them is actually his sister.
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...?
from both onegai twins and da capo is the love for a sisterly figure an very important part.
however their are some differences in the way the protagonist sees his "sister".
but if you liked one you probably like the other too.
Ellis is a young girl who possesses a strange ability to manipulate particles, and has an unfortunate case of amnesia. After accidentally killing a professor in the middle of an experiment, Ellis fled to Mexico and lived under the care of an old lady for many years, but her past has finally caught up with her; there's a price on her head, and men trying to capture her, dead or alive. She meets the bounty hunter Nadie, who befriends her and helps her escape; and together, they decide to travel south to Winay Marka, “The Land of Eternity”, to find clues about Ellis’ past. What’s the origin of Ellis’ powers, and what does “Project Leviathan” have to do with it?
Both these animes deal with love, though El Cazador de la Bruja is more of a friendly love, while Onegai Twins deals with the love of two girls and their couldbe brother. Still, I found the dramatic moments of both to effect me in a similar way.
After his father decided to work overseas, Nozomu moved to the town of his childhood to attend school -- but this is no ordinary town! There is a legend that twins once loved a man so much that they turned into birds and flew away, and the abundance of twins to be found is the result. For Futami, having multiple twins who like him is a dream come true, but also a lot of work since they all want his attention! Now, with jealous fan clubs, sibling rivalry and an ornery goat named Billy to handle, Nozomu must try to win the affections of his childhood friends and new faces alike!
It's pretty much obvious; both harem anime, both in school enviroment, both as simple as they can be. These two probably wont become your all time favourites but I believe they are very fun to watch (especially if you've recently watched a drama or something "heavy" with a complex plot and you want to get rid of the uneasy feeling it left you with).
In the town of Narasakicho, an eternal rainbow grants the townsfolk the "Gift" of magic, which they can use once in their lives. Haruhiko Amami is a normal student who takes his Gift very seriously, feels the urge to fix misused Gifts, and lives his life spoiled by his crazy childhood friend Kirino. But when the boy's foster sister Riko suddenly returns to town, Haruhiko's life becomes more complicated! Now, He must now deal with Riko's fan club, the girls' rivalry and watermelon squashing, all while struggling to discover the identity of a mysterious witch who likes to give away trouble-causing fake Gifts!
Both Gift and Please Twins have a very similar plot: a boy has to deal with two girls' rivalry, and has to find out who he loves. But more than that, one of the girls is actually his sister, which makes the decision hard. If you liked the alternating humour and emotion in one, you'll like the other too.
Yukinari is blessed with an clinical fear of women, commonly known as gynophobia. In addition to his mental ailment, he has the misfortune of being short and weak, making it easy for women to overwhelm him further. Even when his childhood friend, Kirie, approaches him, he immediately breaks out in hives. Thus, life is very lonely for Yukinari, until suddenly in the strangest way possible, he is transported into another world, and into the arms of the beautiful shoujo, Miharu! This time, for the first time ever, he doesn't react. Could this be the start of something special?
Both seasons of Girls Bravo make a nice complement to Onegai Twins (Please Twins). The depth and touching nature of its plot will move you to tears at times (it did for me). There is occasional fan service in season 1 of GB, and it becomes blatant in season 2, which I'd only recommend for those mature enough to handle it.
