Synopsis:

Morimiya Yorito is a normal student who has an abnormal obsession for the sky. One day, he meets a strange girl named Shihou Matsuri who shares his interest, but as fate may have it, she isn't a human; Matsuri is a Yaka -- a "woe of the night" -- who is immortal and cannot stand the sunlight. A strange man is chasing Matsuri, to use her powers, so Yorito decides to help her hide. What are the strange man's plans, and what secrets does Yorito's sister hide?

Clannad After Story

Clannad After Story

Summer break is now over; the second semester has started for Tomoya, Nagisa and the others, and little has changed. Since Tomoya's relationship with his father is still troubled, he continues to live with Nagisa and her family, even if it means getting roped into organizing a baseball team for the family bakery. Life at school continues as normal with Sunohara as carefree as ever; however, when his sister Mei voices her concerns about him, the series of events that follow place a strain on Sunohara and Tomoya’s friendship. Whether it's saving a person from themselves or passing on a message from the past, one thing’s for sure: no matter how tough things get, good friends will always be there to help out.

Both shows emphasize the concept finding your way when you feel lost in the world and feature a guy who goes out of his way to help a lost girl.  They both start out light and become much heavier and more emotional as the story begins to unfold.  They also both take place in the "real world", with the addition of some supernatural elements that are vital to the plot.  Both are bittersweet yet heartwarming shows that will make you laugh and cry, and are both incredible enjoyable shows.

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...

Both of these anime have similar storyline.

At the beginning in both of them the boy who lives without parents find girl with abnormal abilities on seaside. She is chased by some people, so the boy invite her to live with him. In the next part of these animes there are some harem scenes beetween this girl and boy's schoolmate-girlfriend, who takes care of him. Both animes have many fight scenes using abnormal abilities of girls (yaka Matsuri and dyclonius Lucy). At the end of each anime reveals that this strange girl is connected with boy's past.

I had strong feeling of "deja vu" after watching one of these anime after another.

Sorry for spoilers, sorry for my English.

Fate/stay night

Fate/stay night

The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?

Sola and Fate/stay night are both shows in which a supernatural humanlike "creature" eventually becomes a very important person / love interest of the main character. While sola is more of a romance/action and FSN more a romance/action show, they contain very similar elements from both genres and go over emotions of hatred, love and uncertainty. If you just finished one of these, and are looking for something slightly different, but with the same themes and plot elements, look no further!

Both series are about life of couple school friends, with some supernatural plot involved. Moreover, they seem to have silimar feeling and emotional message as they leave the audience with alike state of mind.

Both sola and Haibane Renmei are based on powerful stories that begin as mysteries to the viewer, only to get developed and revealed towards the end. Though these two anime are very different in settings and themes, they share a serenity in the delivery of the plot. Though both are initially slow, they will keep you intrigued and guessing til their final episodes.
