Akane-Iro ni somaru Saka and Toradora are both Stories that start off with a scary male protoganist with over-inflated rumers making him more scary. In both shows the male leads are nothing like the rumors.

Both shows also have simmilar comedy senses and are both have simmilar visual styles.

In short, they are different enough to be individual shows but simmilar enough that if you like one you'll like the other.

Both anime have a scary male protagonist, which then turns out to be the exact opposite of what the rumors say. Also within both there is a annoying little sister character type which is bossier than the protagonist.

SunshinexKite SunshinexKite says...

Both animes male protagonist has had rumors spread around that hes a scary guy but isnt really scary. Both have two girls to choose over; the girl hes loved for awhile or the new girl. Also, coiincidently, Yuuhi and Taiga are voiced by the same seiyuu,  their personalitys are alot alike, and they are wealthy.

Doomoo Doomoo says...

They have a similar setup and characters and the female lead in both are voiced by the same voice actor. The two female leads are extremely similar in many ways and just the general 'feel' of these anime are very close.  I am sure that if you liked one you will like the other.

If you enjoyed the end of Toradora! I think you'll enjoy Honey and Clover too. Both shows I think deal with issues of School Life/ Romance realistically, well, I don't think anyone has bothered to bicycle around their country on a journey of self-realization. The creators of both Anime, I think paid careful attention to how real people would act, given their personalities. And if you enjoyed the characterization of Toradora! Then you would probably enjoy Honey and Clover.  If not, give it a few years and then come back to Honey and Clover, I think it's one of the few anime you need life-experience to enjoy.

yasmin09 yasmin09 says...

Both are slice-of-life animes. Neither really has any exact plot. It's simply following the lives of the main characters as they continue through school whether it be high school for Toradora or college for Honey and Clover. Honey and Clover is a little more drama based and leans more towards the decisions college students have to make such as career decisions while Toradora focuses on high school students and their turmoils. Both have romance, love triangles, comedy, and are refreshingly unique despite their cliche sounding summary.

eaper eaper says...

Each series have a lot of love triangles going on, while having a lot of comedy and drama thrown in the mix. Each series is  character driven and fairly touching overall.

JacobM JacobM says...

Honey and Clover is much more mature, and has a totally different feel, but (towards the end of Toradora in particular) shares the same feeling as Toradora. It may just be the way they both twist viewers emotions, but the two share a common thread.

Kyusuri Kyusuri says...

Toradora and After Story greatly share the theme of "growing up" in a sense. Clannad After Story goes with the more realistic approach though which highly suits it. Toradora has a more dramatic feel due to certain conflicts presented in the story line. Overall, Toradora's dramatic phazes can be enjoyed if you liked the drama in After Story; the idea works likewise.

HitU2 HitU2 says...

Both of the main dude character are very gloomy. but in the end every one is happy in them both. Both of these show are great!!

odie81 odie81 says...

These light HS comedy / romance both build from their basic comedy roots into deep and touching dramas. The caracters are fun and by the time things start to go wrong for them, your so drawn in that your rooting for em as if it was someone you knew.

tootalls tootalls says...

They both have the same outlined feel of 2 people who grow stronger because of each other. These 2 stories have the powerful abbility to suck the viewer deep in their fictional worlds leaving them covered in tears and wandering were the day went. two anime with heart warming stories and loveable characters you will not soon forget!

Hiyokoi

But regardless of her embarrassment, Hiyori's small stature makes her an instant hit with her peers, including the popular and attractive Yuushin. Confident or not, Hiyori's school – and love - life is just beginning...

Easy recommendation, Toradora and Hiyokoi have an amazing amount of similarities. Firstly, in both the main characters have an preconception about them (wether this is true or false is up to the viewer) which starts the plot. Both main females are alike in stature, however not in attitude. Both feature a nice comedic atmosphere and generally make the audience feel good. Finally, both are school-based love stories, which makes this recommendation fairly easy.

mmke mmke says...

these two anime remind me of each other, probably because the characters look the same but have completly different personalities. yuushin is popular with everybody while ryuuji is feared by everybody. hiyori is shy while taiga is violent.

Rilkar Rilkar says...

Both shows are romances between a tall guy with blue hair and a very short girl. And in both shows the guy helps the girl overcome her problems. If you like one you should watch the other.

cahbayb cahbayb says...

Little girl (in stature) finding love. Although the girls characters are opposite -one loud and outgoing seeking trouble, the other shy and reserved.

bothanimes have the same kind of feel to it having the setting in a school and slice of life style, though toradora doesnt have a supernatural part its still doesnt lose to this piece

Osiummaster Osiummaster says...

Both contain tsundere's (even though toradora is probably the epitome of tsundere). They deal with non-common problems and have awesome character developement.

Both contain a love triangle which isn't presented in a total douchebag kawaii way.

They don't really have a set storyline but mostly indepentend arcs which contain a main problem that must be solved.

Aranneas Aranneas says...

Both shows are high scool romance/dramas with comedy elements. There's a fair bit of similarity between the characters of these series, though the ones in Toradora have a bit more depth to them. That and the love triangle clash between two close friends make this an easy rec for me.

Bronia Bronia says...

On the surface, Toradora and Kokoro Connect are not particularly similar. However there's quite a bit about them that make them essential viewing for lovers of either series.

On the surface, both have gorgeous animation with male leads you could date and adorable female leads you could cuddle. Both have a great deal of comedy and pull off romance in a very superb manner. Moreover, the shows heavily feature themes of deconstructing anime archetypes.

Kokoro Connect has more fantasy elements than Toradora, but if you liked one you'll love the other!
