Gentle Himeko and reserved Chikane were born into very different backgrounds, but still became the best of friends. Their fates, they would soon come to discover, are intertwined in a fashion that they can't possibly imagine -- they are the reincarnations of two priestesses who once sealed the god of darkness Orochi in their past lives. Set to revive again, his giant robot-riding agents have set out to destroy the girls, one of whom is Himeko's friend who is in love with her. Riddled with memories of their past lives, the two try to survive long enough to cast the seal on Orochi again...
This may sound awfully strange, (KnM is a mech-yuri), but it's undeniable: there are several similarities between these two, despite sizable plot differences.
People whose feelings are forbidden, being forced to fight each other. Tragic endings, still leaving a glimmer of hope. Young love, reaching maturity.
There may be many differences… but I think you'd enjoy both.
It's been seven years since Yuuichi Aizawa returned to the city he once lived in as a child. Though many things happened to Yuuichi in his past, he can only remember bits and pieces. His parents left Yuuichi in the care of Akiko once again, and this time, he will attend the same school as his cousin Nayuki. Many different girls appear before him, and some of them seem to know him from his past. Yuuichi must now recover his memories of the dark secrets that he erased from his heart, before he loses his precious ones.
RxJ is a great twist on the timeless tale. I definitely recommend it to any fans of Kanon. It has a good pace, but it's not difficult to keep up. And of course a beautiful love story with lots of action mixed in.
Kanon is officially my favorite. It seems to have everything. It's alternatingly hilarious and super-sad/bittersweet and there's plenty of action. And the animation is equally gorgeous!
Yori Yuki has loved his twin sister ever since he can remember. While his parents brushed it off as a child’s fantasy, he always knew it was true love; but because it is incest, taboo, a forbidden love, he did his best to eliminate those feelings. 15 years have gone by and his feelings never wavered; in fact, they have grown stronger. He’s watched his sister Iku grow up and become a beautiful woman, and now, he can no longer contain his feelings – Yori confesses. Yet even if Iku reciprocates his feelings, that doesn’t change the fact that they’re brother and sister. Can forbidden love last?
Alright so i know this might sound a little bit weird but if you are pretty lienient on animes, then i think if you liked "Romeo x Juliet" then you would like "I Love My Younger Sister" and also vice versa.
The animes may not sound too similar at first, but both of them are about two lovers who want to be together, but their love is forbidden. But, while one couple (Romeo x Juliet) is trying to find a way for them to be together, the other couple (I Love My Younger Sister) are trying to stay apart from each other.
If you are open to animes, mainly speaking towards "I Love My Younger Sister", then i think you would like both animes =)

Although today Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari live far apart due to a family move shortly after elementary school, they were once two shy young students brought together by their shared differences from their peers. It is because of this that the two built a bond of closeness between them that still survives through their continued correspondence, even over such a distance. Secretly they both fear the loss of this bond over time, and for this reason they arrange a meeting between just the two of them. The journeys both of them take in their minds and in their lives create an atmosphere of intense emotional upheaval, but also a sense of peace. It is a twist of fate and a series of decisions that put the two in place to carry what they choose of their pasts into the future they will create for themselves.
