Not only are the character designs similar, some almost look identical, but also the way it makes you feel and gets you to cheer for both people involved. Even though you know only one can get the guy in the end.

If one can set aside the superficial differences between Toradora! and Kimikiss, one may just find that the two have more in common than one may think.

Toradora has a small cast and examines the relations presented thoroughly. Kimikiss has a larger cast, but also deals with more personalities. Both present a situation of reciprocated longing with denial separating two friends.

Hitohira

Hitohira

Asai Mugi's everyday life is very much impacted by a singular problem: she suffers from extreme shyness. Her sole friend Touyama Kayo would like to help her out as they've just entered high school, but Mugi's shyness is the sort that steals her voice entirely. It is too bad for Mugi that a freak shout on her part attracted the attention of Nono Ichinose. Nono is on a mission to save her Drama Research Society, and she isn't prepared to accept shyness as excuse from on-stage performances! With a small group of close friends to encourage and educate her, Mugi will be given a chance to be more than she is now. But, can someone so terribly shy really become a stage actress in just a few short months?

Toradora! and Hitohira are high school dramas that also include some romance and comedy. Both are about characters that don't really have a place at school growing more confident, making friends, and finding their niche. Each starts off fairly comedic, but gradually builds in drama over time (I found the endings of each to be rather too melodramatic for my tastes, but that's not to say they were bad endings).

While neither bring anything new to the genre, and are both fairly predictable, they are still very solidly well-done titles.

Two slice of life comedies with clueless main characters that you know you want them to be together but somethings always pulling them apart.Whether it be other love interests or you know, being an all powerful god who can reset the universe at will.

In Toradora may not really be the master-server sphere but there is somewhat of it because the one wants to care for the other one. In Hayate it's the same there is a master-server situation however it's more on free will to care for the master. The plot is completely different even the genres are not really close except for comedy. But the feeling that you have when you see two head characters doing something together then it's the same feeling. Hope you will enjoy.
