Rec and School Days both have there lovey-dovey moments and their sad moments. Both have elements that could happen in real life. Even though School Days is all about cheating Rec has somecheating parts in it also. They both are great shows and anyone who likes romance is sure to like these series.

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.

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!
