Both ichigo 100% and school days are school related romance if u like these kind of anime you'll enjoy them. They are also anime where one guy is surrounded by few girls and you are curious which he will choose .After watching School Days I reccomend watching any "harem" anime ;] .

Both series has a love triangle and the protagonist is indecisive in picking his true love. Both Themes are similar however School Days has taken love into the next step of revenge and jealousy in a whole other level.

Ichigo 100% is the "happy" version of School Days. The male protagonist finds himself caught between many girls who have feelings for him and doesn't know which one he loves the most. If you want a happy version, Ichigo 100% is the better choice, but if you want a well-developed storyline with realistic situations and a spectacular ending, watch School Days. Better yet, watch them both and you will have seen everything harem-animes have to offer.

Habhome Habhome says...

The protagonist in both these series is a pretty regular young boy, who is suddenly the centre of attention for several girls whom he have to choose from. The longer the shows goes on the more intricate it becomes. Ichigo 100% has a more lighter feel to it than School Days though.

Though lacking School Days' clarity of presenation, Narutaru touches upon quite similar subject matter but in a little more graphic fashion. Both series start similarly with an apparant cheery, happy atmosphere with each quickly digressing into a rather dark, morbid drama. Considering the huge number of common elements between the two, if you enjoyed one you're almost certain to enjoy the other.

Both start happy-go-lucky and care-free but sink into depths of violence and torment. Both make the watcher ask 'how did we get to this point?' If you like one, you'd probably like the other.

Narutaru and School Days are two series that seem normal at first glance (School Days up until the end, Narutaru until some episodes in) and end with a really messed up bang - if you like twisted and shocking conclusions these are two for you!

soundchazer soundchazer says...

The main reason why these two shows connect is because they have the same surprise factor to them. In itself, they are both kind of mediocre shows, but the spin that is presented towards the end makes them worth the watch. however, the replay factor in both of these shows is very low.

Even though School Days and Bokura ga Ita are very different, they both focus mainly on love with a dash of comedy. I would recommend Bokura ga Ita to people who enjoyed the softer and more sensitive side of School Days. Bokura ga Ita focuses on a particular couple and they face a few of the problems which were portrayed in School Days. The difference is that Bokura ga Ita goes more in depth with those problems and is more detailed with the characters.

animeisalltome animeisalltome says...

Both having took place in school and have elements that could happen in real life are truely what make these anime similar. They both have a rushed intro but, getting to the point is just what makes both of the anime great. They both have mostly kissing scenes and make you want to yell at the television because you are so into the plot.

theresabooty theresabooty says...

Well, these two have the same concept of the love triangle. They both suffer and feel pain because of love. It definitely bring tears to your eyes as it progresses.

Bokura ga Ita and School Days involve very real life situations.  The dramatic and intense moments played out in each are real life occurrences that could potentially happen.  The over dramatic, almost manic feelings portrayed in both series are what make this recommendation.

eaper eaper says...

Each of these series feature the lead male having adult relationships with several different women. Also, it is very easy to hate the lead male. Finally, the both finish off with a very... risque manner.

xxSilencexx xxSilencexx says...

Jealousy, Lust and Immaturity feature heavily in both animes. The characters loves feels jilted and in many ways wrong (with the except of a few pairings) which bring down both, they seem more like reflection of the barbaric half of society driven through lust. Nether the less both are enjoyable to watch and if you liked one you'll like the other

KaminoKaze KaminoKaze says...

Although the first episodes don't go beyond hackneyed, with time it becomes interesting to watch the development of the main plot. How one of the characters becomes heartbroken mainly becouse of the schemes and the omonious society. And it's more painful to watch how an innocent flower falls into the hands of selfish animalistic desires. And a good ending for a psychological drama.

Garindo Garindo says...

The male protagonist has relationships with multiple girls in both series, resulting in love triangles. Both series are School Life / Drama.

Shakugan no Shana

Shakugan no Shana

Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?

It's mostly a gut feeling, but watching lots of Shana's "triangle" scenes remind me of School Days. They're not alike, though. The characters take many different choices, and because of that it's worth watching both.

automatic automatic says...

Although the storylines may not be similar there is a love triangle relationship, the main characters have to make important life changing choices and both of these series have a clear slice of life feel.
