Rumors tell of a Stony Cat statue that grants a special wish: it will take one of your disliked personality traits and give it to someone in need. Two students arrive at the Stony Cat eager to make a change – Youto, an unabashed pervert, wishes to remove his façade and be able to speak his true feelings, while Tsukiko desires to hide her expressions and be more like an adult. However, little did the pair know that their prayers would be answered in unexpected ways – Youto begins to speak the full, embarrassing truth with brutal honesty, and Tsukiko becomes visually stoic, unable to smile, laugh or cry! To make matters worse, Youto soon runs afoul of the beautiful school idol Azusa, the girl who inherited his unwanted façade. Together, the three slowly become friends while Youto and Tsukiko try to regain what they've lost.
the style of the animation and the perfect mix of comedy and seriousness in these two are obvious.
These two anime actually aren't all that similar, but the Female protagonist in HENNEKO and Sakurasou are extremely alike both are almost completely expressionless (although the one in HENNEKO literally is) and, overall HENNEKO has a much lighter mood throughout the series but it still has a very similar feel including animation style. So for the few of you that actually care how it looks, they're made by the same company so the characters feel VERY similar. So for those of you that like a show that makes you laugh (and has a few tear jerkers) I highly recommend that you watch either of these shows.
One day, while testing out his new video camera on a bridge in town, Kaito Kirishima sees a bright blue light in the sky and is inexplicably knocked over the side, awakening the next morning in bed with no memory of the event. But upon heading to school, the boy notices a new face that’s familiar to him somehow - her name is Ichika Takatsuki, and she’s new in town. Kaito’s friends, noticing his interest in the girl, all resolve to make a movie this summer and cast her as the lead, to which she immediately approves. Now, the group embarks on what will be a truly memorable summer that no one will forget, as Kaito and Ichika slowly, and clumsily, begin to fall in love.
Both shows are high school romcoms revolving around a group of friends. In both series the characters are trying to accomplish something (in case of Ano Natsu de Matteru a movie and in case of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo a game or at least in the first half of the series). Obviously there is romance, drama, comedy and some love polygons going on. If you watched one and liked it, the other one is not that much different, so odds are, you could like it.
In a high school setting, there are many people whose stories must be told: Hiro, an aspiring manga artist whose view of the world is "missing a certain color," according to himself; his childhood friend Kei, who is vying for his attention; Kyosuke, a photographer and cameraman who seeks to capture true emotion in his work; the ever-cheerful Miyako, who meets Hiro by chance and immediately becomes attached to him; the gentle Renji, unsure of his aspirations to become a novelist; and Kei's mysterious and quiet sister Chihiro, who seems to be a different person every day. As time passes and they interact with one another more, their paths increasingly intertwine as shades of regrettable pasts emerge.
Both Melodies and Memories have a lot in common with this anime. They are both beautiful stories that start off with the every day character and bring you into a world of drama and love that can't be simply described. Memories is also more light hearted than Melodies, which matches well with the earlier episodes of Sakurasou. Sakurasou has a wider range of emotions with mostly love and passion, where ef has more heartbreak, though not so much in Memories. Both of them keep you anchore din your seat with a unique sense of always being emotionally moved in every episode which is strange, because the whoel epsiode isn't simply Drama, there is much mroe to it, yet somehow even in the smiling happy moments and the everyday things you keep feeling strongly for the anime; you never ever feel bored. You find yourself sitting with the characters, begging them to make the next move or cheering for their successes and crying for their failures. I can't simply reccomend one over the other so watch them both as they will completely woo any true Drama/Romance fans.

Mei Tachibana has had neither a friend nor a boyfriend in 16 years, and she doesn’t plan on ending that streak any time soon. The outcast learned years ago that social obligations only lead to pain, and has carefully guarded her heart to keep from getting hurt. However, the girl can’t stay withdrawn forever, especially after attracting the attention of the handsome Yamato, who finds her caustic personality interesting and strives to date her after she roundhouse kicks him down the stairs. But even the most earnest of romances can be crippled by jealousy and insecurity, and this pair has plenty of both. Can their feelings for each other overcome their own emotional weaknesses, or will this love perish before it even begins?
Both of these shows have you falling in love with the characters in the story, and wishing them only the best. The opening song in Suki-tte Ii na yo (Say "I love you") is so beautiful that it alone can bring tears to my eyes. I don't know a freakin' word of Japanese, but it just pierces me right to my soul.The similarities might not be obvious at first - SILY is from the girl's perspective, and Pet Girl mostly from the guy's... but if you want a cathartic release, and characters to really root for, then watch both series.
