Both deal with time travel and relationships. The main characters realize what is really important in life after their world gets shaken. Both are excellent movies with drama and good plotlines.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both are about about Japanese high schoolers, time travels and the effects such ventures can have on them, their relationships with each other and what repercussions their choices will have for the future. Other than that they also have a similar feel and absolutely stunning animation.

awpaperwings awpaperwings says...

The protagonist of each are involved in time travel to change some event that they took part in. Each of these films discuss love, but in The Girl Who Lept Through Time it talks of a romantic love, while the Haruhi movie discusses the love of ones friends.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Where to begin well for starters both center around high schoolers, time traveling, relationships, and the effects they may have on the future.  Though Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo tends to focus more on the romantic side of things both still feature some amazing animation.  So if you enjoyed one then you may want to check out the other.

tootalls tootalls says...

Other than a well execution of a time travel theme, these movies are both distinctive and well worth a watch. Your robbing yourself if you dont watch. For the vanishment, consider first watching the anime series to get the most out of the movie, and keep in mind the movie is far better than the anime,

Fargo Fargo says...

Both of these movies are centered around time travel and strong character development, though Vanishment of Haruhi Suzumiya benefits from having a previously established cast that leaves almost three hours for greater expansion. Regardless, both are engaging titles that'll have you laughing, tearing up and leaving you glad that you watched it.

Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate

The eccentric mad scientist Okabe, his childhood friend Mayuri, and the otaku hacker Daru have banded together to form the Future Gadget Research Laboratory, and spend their days in a ramshackle laboratory hanging out and occasionally attempting to invent incredible, yet generally useless, futuristic gadgets. However, their claymore is a hydrator and their hair dryer flips breakers, and the only invention that’s even remotely interesting is their Phone Microwave, which transforms bananas into oozing green gel. But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences...

If you liked either of those shows you'll most likely like the other aswell - both feature time travel and protagonists who seem to be quite out of their mind.

Daleheart Daleheart says...

Both of these Anime feature great stories involving time travel. These anime do more than just provide entertaiment; they make you think. 

CanNotName CanNotName says...

 Time travel and Mystery, what more could you ask for?

Both shows have the MC trying to figure out what is happening to the time line and his friends. Which has the MC guessing where to keep the new would or save the old.

tootalls tootalls says...

Both deal with time travel and paralel time frames. There is a good deal of mystery to be solved in both. Other than the plost simularities they are both just plain great to watch.

OtakuSenseiHig OtakuSenseiHig says...

they both deal with the dissapperance and the yearning for a character that takes up most of the time of the show/movie

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

Slice of life with a little spice just the way I like em. Both the Vanishment of Haruhi Suzumiya and Steins Gate have plenty in common. There's time traveling, a great cast of supporting characters, and all of the romantic comedy you can ask for. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

The supernatural themes run deep in both of these animes. They both share the unique blend of humor and emotionally  packed storylines that are deep and complex. As I have said in other recommendatons the best way to describe it is that these are  two out of three anime series that truly   punch your heart in the face.

joshlul joshlul says...

Both of these series have supernatural themes, are super emotional, and have extremely likable characters, also, Yuri = Haruhi.

conman418 conman418 says...

Both of them have very large supernatural themes. They both take place in school clubs and end with very emotional endings.

brabraden brabraden says...

KenichiSora KenichiSora says...

Its premise and concept are very simalar and has alot of similar themes and basis. the whole kurisu going after okabe, and the very simalar kyon going after haruhi to change things back to how they used to be after something happens makes for a great show, and this is why thier so good and simalar

TreeckOshawott TreeckOshawott says...

They both feature the protagonist trying to recover the other, which leads to a similar build in story.  Also, if you enjoy the twist of the movie on the series, then you will like the other for the same reason.  And, of course, they are both good on their own.

RamkoX12X RamkoX12X says...

Involves the secondary protagonist chasing after the main. Both involve them trying to recover the other through sheer clues and help from other acquaintences. However, the Haruhi movie was a bit more well-done than Steins since the original for Steins was Top-Notch. I guarantee the enjoyment of these two productions.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree, both movies are both basically about the same thing in their own universes. Main characters are missing and their love interests are the only ones that can bring them back. If you like one of the movies you'll love the other.

5 Centimeters per Second

5 Centimeters per Second

Although today Tono Takaki and Shinohara Akari live far apart due to a family move shortly after elementary school, they were once two shy young students brought together by their shared differences from their peers. It is because of this that the two built a bond of closeness between them that still survives through their continued correspondence, even over such a distance. Secretly they both fear the loss of this bond over time, and for this reason they arrange a meeting between just the two of them. The journeys both of them take in their minds and in their lives create an atmosphere of intense emotional upheaval, but also a sense of peace. It is a twist of fate and a series of decisions that put the two in place to carry what they choose of their pasts into the future they will create for themselves.

awpaperwings awpaperwings says...

Both feature beautiful animation and feature a choice: Are you satisfied with your life asit is now? Each film has it's own take, and its own answer. In the Haruhi movie this quistion is approached directly, while in 5cm the connection is more abstract. Highly worth your time witchever you watch.
