In the future, androids live side by side with humans – but not as their equals, as their slaves. Though they look identical, these androids must display a holographic ring over their heads so the difference is clear. One day, a boy named Rikuo finds abnormal activity patterns in the logs of his own android, and alongside his friend Masaki, he sets forth to find where the android has been. Much to their surprise, the duo discovers a secret café known as Eve no Jikan with a single rule: within its walls, there must be no discrimination between humans and robots. In this place, androids appear to be human and are even displaying signs of independence – a trait that should not be possible. Rikou finds his perceptions increasingly challenged as he struggles to come to terms with his own android, and the relationship between man and machines...
First and foremost, both anime well fleshed-out, interesting, believable characters that pulled me in. The feel of the anime were similar--both take place in a modern (or post-modern) setting with high school-aged chracters. Except for the time-jumping in the one and androids (plus some other post-modern gadgetry) in the other, they could have taken place in Japan today.
And most importantly, they both left me with a really happy feeling after watching them.

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.

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.
Yukino had it all. Brilliant, athletic, popular and pretty, she was the perfect school girl with many friends and admirers.

Now, not only is he beating her at her own game, she's becoming more and more dismayed to learn that she's developing her first real feelings of romance. Can Yukino maintain her model student appearance, or will love ruin all her plans?
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.
