Both movies have female protags with disabilities. One movie has romance and the other does not, but they're both pretty powerful/similar films.

wucchu wucchu says...

Both animes have stories revolving around people with a disability. The girl protagonists have a disability and they're having a hard time fitting in until a boy comes to the picture. In the beginning the girl hates the boy because he is unable to understand disabilities. Then the girl realizes that the boy is different from the rest of the people and lets him in. The biggest difference in the animes is that Josee to Tora to Sakana-tachi features romance unlike Koe no Katachi.

Both movies have a male able-bodied character and a female disabled character. Both explore the relationships between these character albeit in very different ways.

Both are heartwarming stories with a bit of drama enough to make you cry. Very lovely characters with cute personalities!!!

The ending to both is great. I watched one after the other and liked both. Would recommend to watch both.

Both of these movies involve a relationship with someone who has a  disability. They have a great storyline and are entertaining.

Abrarrr Abrarrr says...

It's centred around a female character that has to live with a disability. The anime's not exactly trying to send the same message as a Silent Voice, but it's a must-watch because it's equally beautiful.

redspiderlilies redspiderlilies says...

These two movies are perfect for a detailed insight into what's it like to have different disabilities & mental illnesses while living in a world that misunderstands you & devalues you as well. The two movies are fantastic eye-openers & tear-jerkers as well.

Mysterious Girlfriend X

The new transfer student Mikoto Urabe is weird. She falls asleep at the drop of a hat and bursts out laughing unexpectedly, and it's no surprise that fellow classmates like Akira avoid her like the plague. So when the boy comes across the girl after class, fast asleep and drooling all over her desk, he does what any typical teenager would do… and tastes it?! What's more, there's something special about Mikoto's saliva: it's addictive, and thanks to Akira's poor decision, he must now receive a daily dose to avoid withdrawal. As Akira adjusts to this new and unexpected bond, he discovers that he's not only addicted to Mikoto's spit, but to her as well, much to his confusion!

It's a little be more seinen and can be a little weird. But the storyline is great if you get down to it and the tension between the two main characters is great to view. In general great romance comedy maybe not so much drama and weirdness compared to J,tTatF
