Arakawa Under the Bridge

Arakawa Under the Bridge

Holding strictly to his family's creed, Kou Ichinomiya has never once, in his life of privilege, owed anything to anyone – that is, until a self-proclaimed Venusian named Nino saves him from drowning in the wake of a dire accident involving Kou's pants. Eternally indebted to the supposed extraterrestrial, Kou moves into her little community under the bridge along the Arakawa river. Ripped from his life of luxury and success, the young Tokyo U graduate now must adjust to his well-appointed hovel, strange new neighbors, and peculiar lover, Nino.

Ko and Kyon are in very similar situations: they are both surrounded by a ragtag gang of everything from aliens to egocentric leaderrs. These two protagonsits usualy find themselves in the middle of abnormal to downright crazy situations, and are charged with fixing them, even when they are not the instigators. Both shows are animated well, have a witty and intelegent script and provide both laughter and the ocational touching moment.

Without ruining the story, these two share a key element. Loss and loneliness. The stories themselves are quite different, but I found they evoke similar emotions.

They also both have AMAZING soundtracks that can break or lift your heart. 

As I once saw, to put it succinctly, both of these animes "punch your heart in the face."

Both World God Only Knows and Haruhi start out with a ridiculous (in a good way) supernatural premise and a lot of comedy/parody with some lighthearted drama. But there's a point at which things get serious and you realize that the series has been building up to a real arc, and the characters go through some real growth. The series takes on new meaning.

That point is The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya and the goddess arc (Megami-hen) in World God Only Knows. In both cases, you really reeeally should see seasons 1 and 2 first. (It's hard to appreciate the new meaning if you aren't familiar with the old meaning.) Note: If you can, see the OVAs of WGOK, but it's not essential. The anime skipped a lot of the manga regardless. And if you're willing, watch all of the Endless Eight arc in Haruhi; it's not essential but actually does have some relevance.

In any case, Disappearance and Megami-hen are both great if you are invested in the characters. If you're reading this because you liked the way one series started off amusing but then went deeper, try watching the other.

Without trying to spoil too much, these movies have similar themes and structures. They both feature well established series, but take the most serious elements of each and bring them to the foreground. Both showcase spectacular animation and voice acting as well as interesting new developments for the familiar characters.

Back-and-forth patchwork time travel stories have always intriged me. 

These are both finalizations of thier respective series(well unless they make a sequel) 

Both titles you could watch without seeing the series they are linked to, there is, however, a bit of benifit from seeing the shows they are from. Vanishment more-so.  

Both have a bitersweet vibe, and are a bit touching. If you liked the overall story in one, you might enjoy the other.
