Spring marks the start of another new school year at a junior high school in Kamakura. A new transfer student, Ryoichi Kyogoku joins the 8th grade. Kyogoku has a very special proficiency in telepathy and has been ordered by his father to use this ability to scan other people's minds and take over the school. He instantly gains popularity at school from his good looks and charisma and he sets about taking control of the school. As people begin to fall under Kyogoku's spell, he covertly manipulates his followers and pushes aside anyone who gets in his way. With the school almost completely under the control of Kyogoku, only one boy seems unaffected – Seki. Does Seki have what it takes to save everyone from the clutches of mind control?
The animation for both anime is just so beautifully overwhelming, however, Nerawareta Gakuen has more vivid colors. They also give the same feels, especially in the characters one-sided love.
liked em both, so i agree with akkiatsu. certainly visually in animation style narewareta gakuen is way more impressve, but we all know thati t's not just looks that matter. i really love toki wo kakeiru shoujo, and liked a lot nerawareta so i'll be seeing it again sometime. give them a try yourself :)

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.
"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.
When Haruka, Yuu and their friends decided to go ghost hunting, they had no idea the "ghosts" they'd find would turn their lives upside down. Black-clad and wielding quantum powers, these knights from the future are after an artifact of immense power that they hope will save their dimension from destruction: the Dragon Torque; and Haruka seems to be the key. As factions within the knights violently disagree on how to proceed, Haruka and the gang are caught up in a fight with the Shangri La, in an existential battle where fates of entire universes are decided.
These two anime, with one being a series and another a movie, both deal heavily with time travel. Noein goes on to explain its story in detail more along the lines of multi-dimensional physics, and how you can fold one timeline against another to create an alternate timeline. Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo deals with creating an alternate timeline in much the same way, yet it doesn't explain to you the concepts of a multi-verse and a paradox the way Noein does. They also both deal with creating and evolving relationships between people over an extended period of time.

Along with Yurie’s faithful best friend Mitsue, the trio set forth on an adventure to find out what it really means to become a goddess.
Kamichu! and Tokikake are both anime about a young girl who gains fantastical powers and begins applying them to her everyday life. The overtones of Tokikake are sci-fi while Kamichu!'s are more fantastical and deal with Shinto beliefs. However, both shows are very focused on the characters's everyday lives being influenced by their newfound power. Both are happy at times and melancholy at others, and both are dashed with a spot of romance.
