In the future, mankind faces a terrible dilemma: overpopulation!

Karin is a DNA Operator who has been sent back in time to put a stop to the budding playboy's hormones, but accidentally becomes the cause of his transformation! As if things couldn't get worse, is Karin actually... falling in love with Junta?!

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.

Tale of Genji

Tale of Genji

Hikaru Genji is a son of the emperor, born on the wrong side of the sheets. A commoner at birth, he works as a retainer for his father. Though his good looks ensure him the attention of the ladies of the court, the love of his life happens to be his father's wife; and that's where things become a little more complicated. Forced to seek love elsewhere, he leaves no stone unturned; but can he ever find what he truly wants?

School Days and Tale of Genji both share a male lead that gets in a bit over their head due to their own actions with women. While one is political and the other is more modern in tone, both share a tragic sense of storytelling and the consequences of ones actions. Tale of Genji shows a classical view of one of the first representations of a novel and a hero (save for older publications such as the bible) while School Days shows us a modern version of an unfaithful romance and what can happen in a visceral sense. Genji is haunted by the loss of his mother for every romance that he succumbs to, while Makoto seems to not be able to maturely cope with what it really means to be in a relationship with a woman, decending into masogeny. I enjoyed the emotional contents and social relavence of both stories and am better off because of the morals implied in both.

Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror

Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror

The dark and brooding Ayakashi is composed of three horror stories: the narration of a young woman named Oiwa who was abandoned and betrayed by the one she truly loved, leading her to curse all who stood in her way; a story of two star-crossed lovers – a human and a forgotten god – and their struggle to have a future together; and the tale of an evil and malicious demon who is haunting and murdering a family for unknown purposes. Though different in animation style and tone, each story shares a similar theme: the darkness of the human heart.

They're not in the same genre, but both School Days and Ayakashi feature a cast of self-centered jerks, themes involving desperation and revenge, and really unfortunate love triangles that end in the absolute worst way imaginable.

Despite all this (or maybe because of it), I really enjoyed both, and you might too.
