Sora no Manimani

Sora no Manimani

Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!

Toradora reminded me a lot of Sora no Manimani. Both of those are high school romance series, though Sora no Manimani was more of a "slice of life" seres than Toradora. Both feature a "nice guy" who is the love interest of 3 (somewhat clithe) girls. Since they are similar, if you liked one of those, the other one might be worth checking out.

P.S. Sora no Manimani lacks a conclusion since the anime covers only half of the story.

Doomoo Doomoo says...

These anime are similar in that they deal with two normal teens. Both have a male lead who doesn't really like the female lead in the begining but they grow closer and closer over time. They also both have at least one other female trying to get with the male lead. Toradora is much more well fleshed out in gerneral but if you enjoyed Toradora you will like Sora no Manimani too. And if you liked Sora no Manimani you will absolutely love Toradora.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai

Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!

The main male character in TD has similar traits to Kodaka and is somehow a magnet to odd girls. I would recommend TD for the similarity of setting and character relationships.

both haganai and toradora are comedy animes focused around a guy who has been misunderstood becuase of his delinquent looks and a girl who is completly untouchable. both have a cast of charecters around them to support and misinterprete their every action. i personally enjoyed haganai more and it can be a much more lets say mature than toradora but if you liked one 90% chance you will like the other

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!

Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!

Rikka Takanashi is a teenage girl who possesses the strongest ocular power known to man: the Tyrant’s Eye. She's currently locked in a fierce war with a shadowy organization, and the fate of the world may hang in the balance with each passing battle... or at least this is what she believes. In actuality, Rikka is merely a normal high school girl afflicted with chuunibyou syndrome, a "disease" that makes one prone to delusional flights of fancy. Meanwhile former chuunibyou sufferer Yuuta Togashi is enrolled at the same school, looking to put his embarrassing junior high exploits behind him. However, when Rikka discovers his past life as the "Dark Flame Master", she uses this to her advantage to include him in all of her wacky schemes! With Rikka’s zany behavior dragging him further and further from normalcy, Yuuta must try to pull her back into the real world – or risk getting sucked into hers!

Both animes involve a boy and a girl living close to each other, going to the same school, are part of a group of friends and a lot of comedy. They also develop feelings between the main characters the same way. If you liked one for that last reason, you will definitely enjoy the other too.

Both Toradora and Chuunibyou are remarkably similar in a multitude of ways. The character development is the stand out feature of both of these anime, so if you really liked how the characters progressed and were portrayed, or even just who they were, either anime is a great choice to watch. In fact, it's almost necessary. There really isn't too much to say, so I hope you take my word for it.

Acchi Kocchi

Acchi Kocchi

Everyone has a circle of friends they hang out with. But even within a small group there are smaller groups of friends, best friends and, here's where it gets complicated, boyfriends and girlfriends. Sometimes relationships just develop in a way where you're not exactly sure what you are to the other person. Which is the problem Tsukimi has when it comes to Io: he seems to be totally clueless about how she's starting to feel. It's a puzzle she'll have to solve in Place to Place.

While Toradora! is a little more serious anime, the characters are so sweet you can melt just like Acchi Kocchi.You should definitely watch both!

Azumanga Daioh

Azumanga Daioh

Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!

While Toradora! has a romantic focus and Azumanga is focused just on slice-of-life comedy, both series have a similar style of comedy, based around the character's wild personalities. This is particularly evident in Toradora! with Minori, who often acts like a more energetic version of Osaka. They also use some of the similar "typical" highschool episodes, like the characters going to a beach house during summer break and a few episodes centered around the school pool. If you thought one series was funny, it's likely you'll enjoy the comedy in the other.
