Kamisama Kazoku

Kamisama Kazoku

Samatarou is the son of God and is currently living on Earth with his family and guardian angel named Tenko, in order to better understand humans. Having God as his father means that everything always goes the way Samatarou wants; and as a result, he has been unable to enjoy his life among humans and wishes nothing more than to live life as a normal human being. Suddenly, one day a new girl transfers to his class and he develops a crush on her at first sight. How is he supposed to win her heart on his own when his whole family tries to do everything for him? And is it really just friendship that he feels towards the angel who is always by his side?

Young love, unrequited love and unfulfilled love feature heavily in both of these series. Both set in highschool with a similar cast, they look at what it was like to have a crush and the mistakes made.

I would recommend both series if you like a dark twist too. School Days takes that darkness to the extreme, whereas it is hinted towards more in Kamisama Kazoku.

Both animes start out light-hearted and innocent and turn to the darker side of love, and the endings are also pretty unexpected.

If you liked this anime, you're sure to love the other. Why? Both are stories about womanizers, love triangles, affairs, and drama. And you have to admit, those kind of stories are pretty deep. So check out the other anime today, because it's as good as this one.

Paranoia Agent

Paranoia Agent

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

Perhaps storylines differ, but both of these series have this really unique atmosphere - like there is something unavoidable in the air, the bitter end awaiting, the fear and horror. Plus, you get this feeling of emotional unstability and psychic sikness while people are going mad. So if you're into this kind of things, don't hestitate!

Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru

Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru

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?

Both anime handle the subject of forbidden love (albeit in very different ways.) In both anime you're meant to sympathise with the under-dog and both anime aim to make you think a little differently about what it means to love someone.
