Just as with "Whisper of the heart", Figure17 does also address some of the issues a young girl is faced with when she has to come to terms with herself.

Howl's Moving Castle and Whisper of the Heart are about girls who really have nothing going on in their lives. Then, a person comes into their lives and shows how them how truly great they can be. They are both cute Studio Ghibli films.

I''s Pure

I''s Pure

It's Christmas Eve and Ichitaka, with his friend Yasuo, await a double date. While waiting for Iori and Nami, Ichitaka reminisces about his experience with his life-long crush Iori. There were many opportunities to finally confess his love to Iori, especially the time when the two were selected to arrange the freshman entrance ceremony; but Ichitaka was either too shy or often misunderstood. The biggest misunderstanding of all was when Ichitaka's childhood friend, Itsuki came to live in Ichitaka's home all the way from the United States...

I think I''s Pure and Whisper of the Heart have a lot in common. Even if they don't have the same plot or somewhat you could call a real story connection, they both take on the love, mostly the single sided love. In both series we can find a very interesting mixup too, rejection, unsecurity and love.

A very slow moving series that doesnt really deal with anything, but have the some kind of feeling to it as "Whisper of the heart" - at least at times.
