Both series have a good storyline and the same type of platonic love romance. Kare Kano have a comic streak to it that is missing in Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo, but it makes up for it in a kinda subtile humor of a naive girl.

Great storytelling in these two romantic dramas, both with great character depth and development. Same sort of subtile drama/romance underlying the entire storyline. Makes it feel real.

Both are good dramas with a kinda complex story or complex characters. Both have a subtile romance that belnds well with both the storys.

Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile

The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.

The main female characters in both serier are kinda similar, short hair, impulsive but with great depth. And with the underlying romance in these two great stories it makes them both verry good romance storys.

Both "Asatte no Houkou" and "The girl who leapt in time" are coming-of-age stories. Heroines discover that making mistakes and wishing to right them is only human, but the way to deal with errors is not easily acceptable, and planning one's future as one sees fit isn't necessarily the best thing for her.
