What can I say, they have the most common stories in between them with age gaps, student/teacher relationships or the bitter drama, that explains why this is about a young adult men and a young teenager girl.

DeaAura DeaAura says...

Its very similar to Higehiro in that its a slightly inappropriate relationship between a working 20 something man and a high school girl.  They both explore areas of a relationship type not normally seen in anime. 

XxsakurascarletxX XxsakurascarletxX says...

Both have age gap relationships and are comedic in their own ways. The only difference I found so far is that Higehiro tends to edge on the fine line on what is considered anime and what is considered hentai. 

imoutoOver imoutoOver says...

Theyre both age gap rom coms focused on a high school girl and a office working older male. Higehiro is the man falling in love with the girl (or maybe both of them falling for eachother?) while Koikimo is about the girl falling for the guy (after the guy already likes her)

wucchu wucchu says...

Similar age gap stories, even though Higehiro is more on the sexual side. The stories begin in a similar way too - the other person helping the other one. In Higehiro the man helps the girl and lets her live with him after she ran away from home. In Koikimo the girl helps the man by giving him her lunch when he hadn't been feeling well.

Both are very similar in ways, Such as the age gap between the ML and the FL, They also both have a somewhat similar story line.and the graphics styles are nice in my opinion. I really enjoy them both

from the frist episode i can compair with id say these both hold simular vibes of romance, cute, funny and romance ;3

wucchu wucchu says...

Both animes are comedic age cap stories where a high school girl falls in love with an older guy. The main difference between these animes is that in After the rain the man doesn't push himself on to the girl.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

so far these are also verry simular in romance and sence of humer  ¯\_( ◉ 3 ◉ )_/¯                                                             

Umaianpan Umaianpan says...

The dynamic between the two leads from each is similar- both involve a romance between a narcissistic male and a very down to earth girl. Of the two series, Koikimo seems to be the more grown up, realistic alternative.

Tsundere, Imouto (little sister type), etc. are only a few of the PERSONAS that the café waitresses play out here. And the new hire, Maika, is asked by the store manager to play none other than the SUPER SADIST!? As she becomes devoted to her work, her super sadist persona blooms unexpectedly... Everything is a treat—even being stomped on—in this outrageous working comedy!

The male leads kind of resemble each other since they both act somewhat masochistic. They both confessed love for the female leads in the first episode, too. The settings are kind of different, but they are both sweet, enjoyable shows!

Both anime have a female that is a tsundere character with a sweet but misunderstood male lead. Taiga is more aggressive though.
