Myself; Yourself and Sola start off innocent with a school romance quickly turning into a much more dramatic form of events and psychological tests for the main characters. Sola is more of a fantasy based drama whereas Myself; Yourself takes on a more realistic feel.
These anime are really very much alike: typical slice of life story evolving into some psychologically ill situations and dead ends for main characters set in quite little village's high school between group of friends. If you like kind of sad, yet unexpected endings after mad-twisted action, this is for you.
Myself; Yourself pushes deep into darker subjects than Sola does however both dabble with building a story and then revealing more as the end becomes closer. Both worth watching but for different reasons.
When Junichi 'Gene Killer' Nagase saved the beautiful and wealthy Yuuhi Katagiri from bullies one day, he had no idea that he'd actually assisted his would-be wife! For what Junichi didn't know is that he and Yuuhi's fathers decided they would be wed, and Yuuhi has arrived in his town to decide if her betrothed is good enough for the job. After a humiliating and unwanted first kiss, Yuuhi moves in with Junichi to evaluate his worth; and thus, Junichi's life is changed forever. With embarrassing situations at every turn and a bride-to-be that thinks he's uncivilized and brash, what's a guy to do?
Recommending Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka to the series Sola.
For, Akane-Iro, Junichi is striked as GENI KILLA, sounds familar to DeathNote: Kira; but he is striked down with a fianc'e--Which is simular to Yorito in Sola. In both Series there is a build up of Relationships that end up kinda pointless...
In both of these series, there is serious problems with lying to each other and everyone (which covers years and not little white lies...)... And these lying happens to both Junichi and Yorito from there sisters. Which could be Your already dead to Im not really your sister... Both of the sisters Love there brother (which differ in severity)... There is even a third party that tries to intervien--and also a second third party, but there is no plot or growth for the second third party in either series LOL ... poor mina-san and that rich girl from Akane-iro i think Ayanokii.
Both of the animes revolves around simular situations. I'd like to say you should watch the other series that I recommended.
A NOTE FOR THE ADMINS: Akane-iro series is over at 12, but it says 12+.....
Lying (or with holding all of the truth) leads to misunderstandings. Perfectly citing this point are none other than Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka and Sola. This mainly revolves around the sisters of both Yorito and Junichi not being entirely honest with the, creating more of a mess than they are already in.
One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara High School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...
Both shows start out as bright happy shows but slowly get darker as they go on. And both shows are about how it would really be if you were a magical girl and how it wouldn't be as fun as it seems. If you like one you should watch the other.
Both are dark, dramatic and full of feelings. In both the characters must sacrifice something.

School Days and Sola starts as light school-romance comedy and slownly turn into deep psychological and tragic story. In both series there are same shocking plot twist and unexpected ending. The only diffrence is that Sola have more action,magic and story isn't as tragic as school days.
School Days and Sola start off innocent with a school romance quickly turning into a much more dramatic form of events and psychological tests for the main characters. Sola is more action packed and fantasy driven where School Days stays on a horrifyingly almost real path.

Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?
Shana could be from the same stable of manga ideas as sola, in that both male leads aren't really all they seem to be. There's a deep seated similarity that can't be divulged without revealing plot. Both anime deal with strangely other-worldly women, be they vampires, demons, or demon-slayers. Shana has substantially more action, however.
Both anime feature a combination of action and romance. They are both set in fantasy worlds, where the general public is oblivious to the magic which exists around them. Both of these series explore the theme of identity.
