While not very alike, it's impossible to not notice the supernatural elements that are secondary to the story, coupled with the dramatic - and at times hilarious! - dialogue that are in each. However, they're somewhat opposites: the protagonist in Iris Zero is the sole person to not have a power in a world where everyone is recently born with one, and in Rewrite the protagonist seems to be one of the few who actually do have a power.
Riki, Rin, Masato, Kengo, and Kyousuke are five high school students who have been friends since they were young children. With their carefree school days rapidly coming to an end, the gang wants to do something fun and crazy like they used to and in the heat of the moment decide to form a baseball team. Calling themselves the “Little Busters” the friends begin to recruit new members and start practicing. But even though they’ve managed to secure two new teammates, with everyone getting distracted by a multitude of other things from sorting out cleaning duty for the boy’s dorm to helping a girl find a roommate, will the Little Busters ever be able to find enough members, or for that matter even have time to practice?
Each of these Key manga center around one boy and many young-looking girls (Key’s signature art design) as he helps them with their problems. You’ll immediately find the same content you enjoyed in one that you found in the other, especially when it comes to characters, their appearance and personality, and the fun, hilarious, yet sometimes dramatic chats they hold with everyone they meet.
