Though Rec pans out to be the better of the two in terms of realistic romance, Kimikiss certainly holds its own weight in comparison. Both titles flaunt some of the best romantic progression in the genre, and given the sheer number of crap titles out there, this is nothing to scoff at. If you're a fan of good romance, neither title is one to be passed up.

Koi Kaze

Koi Kaze

If life teaches us anything, it is that love sometimes happens in the most unlikely of places, with the most unlikely of people. Koshiro is a run-of-the-mill salaryman who has recently been dumped by his partner. With his heart broken and hope lost, he soon comes to realize that he can love again, once he sets eyes on a beautiful young schoolgirl riding the train. However, there is one catch -- this girl named Nanoka is his sister, who he has not seen in years. Knowing that their forbidden love will always be scrutinized by society; will Koushirou and Nanoka be able to resist the temptation?

Koi Kaze and REC are hyper-realistic romance series (starring at least one adult) that offer a welcome respite from the oodles of angsty/vapid romances set in high schools. The male lead from each is especially similar.

Lamune

Lamune

Kenji Tomosaka is a young boy who moved from the city to a coastal town at a young age. The ocean fascinated him, and that is where he met a girl named Nanami Konoe. Together, they played together on the beach; but unknowingly, they lived next to each other, their balconies just feet apart. As time moves on, their relationship deepens, and many of their friends call them a couple; but neither Kenji nor Nanami is willing to make a move. Time passes, and summer comes again; but this time, something will happen that will change them both forever...

Similar to REC, Lamune has a very casual slice-of-life feel to it.  Though it tends to drag out its content a bit more due, obviously, to the huge disparity in series length, it still possess much the same style.  Though there are a number of girls, the main romance is already set in stone, so expect romantical progression similar to that in REC.

Love Get Chu

Love Get Chu

Ichihara Momoko comes to Tokyo with plans to get accepted to Lambda Eight’s training school, become a famous voice actress, and meet and marry Ichinose Minato, her favorite voice actor. A solid plan, but will things really go so smoothly? There’s no question she’s got the lungs for it – unleashing her full volume can cause minor earthquakes - but does Momoko have the talent (and luck) to debut in the world of voice acting? Along with her new friends Yurika, Rinka, Tsubasa, and Amane, Momoko will put everything she’s got into passing kanji pronunciation tests, speeding through complicated tongue twisters, and making her way to her debut.

Both anime are about seiyuu and their hard work. Ichihara Momoko from "Love Get Chu" as well as Aka Onda from "REC", they both are trying to become famous voice actresses.

both animes involve people who are getting to live under the same roof as romance starts to grow between them
