Synopsis:

Shinichiro Nakagami is an everyday high school student, with the exception of having his beautiful and athletic childhood friend Hiromi Yuasa living in his household after the death of her parents. Unfortunately, their relationship is cold at best - Shinichiro can tell that she is suffering, but she acts coldly and distant from her foster family and so he is unable to help ease her sadness. His family is also forcing him to practice a traditional Japanese dance that does not interest him, adding to his frustration. On top of that, he is cursed to misfortune by another girl in school, the eccentric Noe Isurugi. Shinichiro juggles all of these problems on a day-to-day basis as he learns about love and the sadness of those around him.

Both Kanon (2006) and True Tears tell a sotry of a boy surrounded by girls who have to decide who to choose as girlfriend. Deep in their heart both main characters know who they want to be with but obstacles which they have block them from choosing that one from the begining.

Kanon and True Tears are both animes that have different side stories revolving one main character, a boy.

Moreover, the beautiful flow of events will introduce you to the amazing stories behind Kanon and True Tears.

Both series are based around one guy, and three girls. They focus on the guy's relationships with each of these girls and his feelings about each one.

A lot of the scenes in each one take place in school.

Well we could start with the usual love polygon, except that both of these have a male protagonist that lives close by the female protagonist.  Though True Tears may not be a heavy Rom/Com such as ToraDora, there are similarity in the dialogue and character interactions.

True Tears and Toradora! are both adorable with very individual characters, along with a wonderful deeper meaning.

White Album

White Album

Touya Fujii is a young university student who juggles two part-time jobs with his studies so that he can afford to live. The most important thing in his life is his girlfriend Yuki, but since she is an up and coming idol they barely get a chance to talk, let alone see each other. With her managers keeping a close watch on her and attempting to prevent their relationship, it seems that Touya and Yuki will simply have to make the most of their fleeting moments together. However, they do have one person fighting in their corner: Yuki’s friend - the famous idol Rina Ogata - hires Touya in order to create opportunities for the pair to be together. Unfortunately he is promptly fired when the production company discover her plan. When she pledges to make it up to him, Touya begins to wonder if Rina is all that she seems, and why is she going to so much trouble for him and Yuki?

These two shows share a very similar visual style and when you boil the plots down to their core, they are very similar.

However, thats not why i'd recommend them.  What I really like is that both shows have a male lead with multiple possible relationships, but there is never one that feels totally impossible.

White Album's number of possible suitors is a bit overboard (5 at my last count), all of them seem very possible.  Depending on the episode, you may find yourself rooting for someone completely different.

That's what makes me recommend it.  As the main character's emotions flip flop back and forth, so do mine.  That aspect really grabbed me and hooked me for both shows, and thats why'd i'd recommend them.

The relationship between thoes two films are not totaly clear, but i beleve that many will see ti like me. The feeling is in many sencies quite close. They are both intime relation dramas between people that really loves each other, and shuld just let thiers harts come loose... Easy sad but far from easy...

Both are good animated, but True Tears loocks just amazing. The animators here has really played with strong pastells and made a truly beautifull, but still realistic world. White Abum on the other han has a more realistic look - probably more sutible for that type almost melodrama.

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

Both shows come from the same studio and are excellent at stimulating emotions within you.  Hiromi and Kanade are also both similar in how they care for the main character but they have difficulty in expressing their true feelings.  Even though the plots are different, it is likely you will experience the same feelings for both of these great shows.
