Sunao Konoe has just transferred to a new school and quickly makes new friends in the flirtatious Shinichi, loud Kinu and other classmates, but what she really wants is to form a theater club. There’s just one problem: the student council has to approve any new clubs, and the group is led by Erika, an arrogant girl who refuses the request! With distractions such as her childhood friend Leo, part time jobs and Erika’s outlandish challenges standing in her way, will Sunao ever manage to form the theater club?
Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
What these two anime have in common is the theme of trying to re-establish the drama club in high school in order to fulfill main characters' dreams. While Tsuyokiss is a little bit more lively, both series concentrate on the same issue - boy and girl fighting together with school system while growing more and more fond of each other.
The female protagonists in Clannad and Tsuyokiss Cool x Sweet are trying to establish a school club. Even though they both have different goals each series is trying to develop a drama club to fulfill the character’s dream.
Maya is a dreamy young girl whose clumsiness is matched only by her absent-mindedness. While others have given up on her, the legendary actress Tsukikage sees her hidden potential and offers to take Maya under her tutelage. Maya loves the theatre more than anything, and as there's not much she can do about it at home, she chooses to run away with Tsukikage. The world of theatre is harsh, however, especially for a naive young girl far away from home. While she finds new friends who support her, her mentor has powerful enemies and Maya is often on the receiving end of their ruthless plans. In face of the adversity, Maya must constantly fight to develop her skills to catch up with her unbelievably talented rival, Ayumi, if she hopes to inherit Tsukikage's legendary role: The Crimson Goddess.
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?
Joining an acting club, Hitohira and Tsuyokiss Cool x Sweet, involve two girls gaining confidence in themselves while performing on a stage setting. The emotions are seen of a school type of club while developing the relationships between characters.
Kurata Sana has a very eventful life. Though she’s only in the 5th grade, she’s the star of a popular TV Show called “Child’s Toy”. She lives with her eccentric mother and her boyfriend aka manager aka pimp, and faces hell at school. Her archenemy, Hayama Akito, turns the classroom into chaos each day, but Sana is finally ready to put her foot down! Can she defeat Akito and take control of her class? And more importantly, how will she deal with the secrets she finds about him?
Both feature an aspiring and overly-determined school-aged lead character who earn and develop the trust, respect and frienship of those around her. The supporting characters are funny and hold their own in side stories...
Tsuyokiss Cool x Sweet is different, however, in that there's a tone of fan-service in each ep... that aside, the story as a whole is light-hearted and fun.
When the students of class 2-A at the all-girls Mahora Academy head back to school, they are expecting a new year as usual. What they get is a new homeroom teacher... who's 10 years old! As if being a genius isn't enough, Negima is a mage. As part of his training to be a Magister Magi, he must succeed at teaching - without anyone finding out he's a magician! Can Negi keep his talents a secret from the girls who just adore the cutest new addition to their academy? Through demon attacks, magical enemies, and English tests, Negi will put all his talents to the test to be the best teacher he can and achieve his goal of Magister Magi.
Though it may not look like that, but I believe that these two anime share the same atmosphere - lazy, carefree high school life, joyful, with some little, silly problems.. MSN contains fantasy motives, but all in all, it's just group of friends' school life, just like in Tsuyokiss.
