It’s a new year, and a new group of students is moving on to high school. Takaki Kono is a shy young man who has a variety of friends including the perverted Yuuji and overly-emotional childhood friend Konomi. Along with the usual responsibilities of attending classes and studying hard, Takaki finds himself involved in the lives of many young ladies as well. Whether it’s with class representative Komaki, wealthy and combative Yuma, Yuuji’s confident older sister Tamaki or yet another girl, Takaki finds himself always caught up with a new girl and a new challenging or playful experience!
On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?
One guy. Two childhood females (infatuated with guy) who are referred to him as his sisters - these are the main heroines. Other females also like guy, but are much less important to the story compared to the first two heroines. Will his childhood friends confess their feelings or keep them hidden? That’s the dramatic part they share so keenly in common, taken directly from the routes in the visual novels. Female androids; those are present too, as characters.
Yoshiyuki, Otome, Yume, Sakura and the rest of their friends are back for more romance and mystery. The school festival is approaching, and the class decides upon a puppet show; what’s more, Yoshiyuki was chosen to be the lead! Even once the holidays pass, plenty of quiet times await the gang: Yoshiyuki and Otome investigate mysterious occurrences on the island and the truth behind the always-blooming sakura tree, and everyone celebrates the end of the year – amongst other events.
The kind but oblivious to romance male protagonist. Two childhood females (infatuated with said boy) who are referred to him as his sisters - these are the main heroines. Other females also like guy, but are much less important to the story compared to the first two heroines. Will his childhood friends confess their feelings or keep them hidden? That’s the dramatic part they share so keenly in common, taken directly from the routes in the visual novels.
Manaka Junpei is an average guy who has only two dreams in life: to become a filmmaker and to find the girl of his dreams. Luckily for him, after a chance encounter on the roof of the school, he has a lead on the girl! She was wearing strawberry panties. Unfortunately, he can't figure out which one of the five girls chasing him it was; but he gets plenty of chances to find out the color-of-the-day in his Cinderella search for his one true love!
Both anime are very similar because they have one clueless boy who is being loved by all these girls and he can't pick just one. To Heart 2 is more light hearted and lacks ecchi where Ichigo 100% is all about the ecchi and panty shots. Check one out if you liked the other.
The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!
Weird quirky characters surround both of these anime and a similar theme of alien catching or being obsessed with them. To Heart 2 is more just a guy spending time with all these different girls who like him and very light hearted. Where The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya takes things in a spastic confusing way and isn't to tender loving. I suggest you check either of these out if you liked the other.
