Reasons you might like Iris Zero...

abunai abunai says...

Both Hyouka and Iris Zero build up their story about essentially human emotional dramas, the interplay of personal feelings. In both stories, there is a standoffish male lead with a gift for seeing into people's deepest motivations and breaking through layers of mystery -- and his burgeoning love interest, a sweet and positive girl who helps motivate him to act on others' behalf. If you like one of them, you'll surely like the other.

Rui-Rui

Honoka and Yuzuki learn about a small school club called the Abandoned Building club. They meet the vice president of the club, Tachibana Mana, a very passionate and nicely-figured girl, and the two girls decide to join. The club’s purpose is to visit abandoned buildings, rooms or stations and see the beauty of the place that has been forgotten but which is full of history, places that are worn out by time, forgotten by people but filled with hints into the past.

A School Frozen in Time

A School Frozen in Time

On a snowy school day like any other, classmates and childhood friends Hiroshi and Mizuki arrive at school to find the campus eerily empty. Before long, they find themselves trapped inside with six other friends, and even strangers, all the clocks have stopped at a very specific moment–the exact time when a former classmate jumped off the school roof to their death three months earlier. It turns out that this departed friend is their way out of their current predicament and may even be among their group… but no one can remember who it was that took their life on that sad day. The students must face themselves and their past memories to piece together the identity of this suicide victim or risk a similar fate–with their lives lost and forgotten inside these frigid school walls.
