Both shows have high school girls that have communication issues that they want to overcome. They both have goals to make an absurd number of friends.

vivaria vivaria says...

Both feature socially anxious characters wishing to make friends. And, both feature an accommodating supporting cast who help the main character form relationships despite their difficulties. Very healing shows for socially anxious people.

AustinDR AustinDR says...

Both of them revolve around protagonists suffering from social anxiety but their goals are to acquire friends albeit, the goals are set differently (one wants to befriend her entire class whereas the latter wants to make 100 friends at best). 

Both are also very wholesome series with characters having bountiful personalities.

Senryu Girl

Senryu Girl

At first glance Yukishiro Nanako seems like a normal high school girl, but she has a notable eccentricity: instead of speaking, she communicates only through written senryu poetry! This means she expresses herself only in 5-7-5 syllables. To most this might seem like an inconvenience, but for Nanako and her ex-delinquent bestie, Busujima Eiji, it adds to the experience of their high school lives as they run the Literature Club.

Both feature mute characters who communicate via writing, and both feature happy, wholesome storylines where the mute characters are able to form bonds with others as they naturally are, without them being forced to speak.

Both feature quiet "outsider" main characters who find it hard to connect with those around them. In both cases, the character is able to connect with certain people, even despite the difficulties they face.

Kimi ni Todoke - From Me To You

Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.
