Two slice of life comdies and both love stories centered around the moral decicion.

To say what you want to say and achieve you own happiness or to say what you think you should to make others happy.

If you liked Toki wo Kakeru Shouju, you will definitely enjoy Toradora! They both are rather comedic comedies that deal with the main characters coming to terms with their feelings and how to deal with them.

Cencoroll

If nothing else, these two works are strikingly similar in tone, visual style, and character design - they seem almost born for each other. The low-key, naturalistic depiction of teens is something of a similar mindset. That both also have a sci-fi element is notable - however, Cencoroll is all about the sci-fi action (however peculiarly so); while The Girl Who Leapt Through Time uses a non-action sci-fi concept as an integral force to its low key and very human drama.

These are rather major differences to take into consideration; but the works just feel so tonally similar to me I feel obliged to cross recommend them.

Both animes are very fun because of the animation styles and charector development! You will instantly fall in love with the charectors and become absorbed into the movie! full of Drama and action! I highly recommend either one these confusingly fun movies!

While at glance, both of these appear to be varying degrees of lighthearted, both ultimately have a serious message - if you have the power to change the past, should you? I enjoyed both, so even if one doesn't look like your cup of tea, watch it through to the end.

Both of these shows have a young girl time traveling for one reason or another. But they also look at the consequences of doing so (changing the past is tricky business after all).

Both are single-episode titles that revolve around science fiction, but do not involve heavily in technologically-advanced items. Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo and Hoshizora Kiseki are not Studio Ghibli films, but they both contained the soothing fullness, I call this the "Ghibli feel" (haha). Both are great titles. Hoshizora Kiseki is more laid back with cute characters, the ending was a feel-good one.

Serial Experiments Lain

Serial Experiments Lain

"I have only abandoned my body, I still live here" - are the words emailed to friends of Chisa, several days after her death by suicide. As Lain delves deeper into the world of the "Wired" (also known as the internet), the line between it and reality becomes more and more unclear. Close the world, open the nExt.

I found Toki wo and Lain to be related because in both, the main characters try to use their powers to alter reality.

Both anime also center on the change and growth of the main characters.
