In Nijiiro days, we can see four boys who are frieds have different personalities and love interests. In Tsuredure children we can see that too. Both are comedic, romantic and very much enjoyable. And both are short episoded too. 

Enjoy.

Both have multiple focused couples in the show and have short episodes. Some of the characters were alike in a way also, and the couples' relationships were alike too.

Toradora!

Both refer to a boy trying to win over a girl who does not seem to care much for him. Whereas Nijiiro is more about boy trying to win girl, in toradora we have a boy and a girl trying to win over their respective crushes.

Both comedies.

They both regard a group of friends and their experiences in life. Whereas Nijiiro has romance, free! focus more on friendship and swimming. They are both carefree animes that make you feel warm inside. 

You and Me.

You and Me.

Shun, Kaname, and the twins Yuuki and Yuuta have known each other since they were young children and are now entering their second year at Homare High School. However, despite having been friends for many years, their life together isn’t always smooth sailing. And with the sarcastic and indifferent twins constantly teasing or irritating the serious Kaname, it's left up to the optimistic and kind Shun to keep the peace. But no matter their differences, the four boys stick together through everything, whether they’re simply reminiscing about their days in kindergarten, attempting to get Yuuki interested in a school club, or trying to stop the source of Shun's recent run of bad luck.

If you enjoyed Nijiiro Days as a slice-of-life anime focused on a group of high school male friends, you will similarly enjoy Kimi to Boku and vice versa. Both shows contain a very similar mixture of daily life, comedy, and drama. The biggest difference is that Nijiiro has more romance, but I still think that if you liked one, you'll also like the other.

Momokuri

Momokuri

Yuki Kurihara has finally been granted her wish of dating her crush Momo. At first glance, she just looks like a normal but very cute girl. However, she is in fact a maniac over Momo, taking notes of his activities and never missing the chance to see him in a cute moment. Momo, on the other hand, is inexperienced in love, and just wants to make Yuki happy.

How obsessed can a main character be with a member of the opposite sex?

The answer may surprise, terrify, delight, repulse, or please you to no end.

There is no accounting for taste and over the top actions to get close to a love interest are abound in each episode of both animes.

Looking for some lovey-dovey sweet (potentially) stalkerish, slightly-dramatic behavior then give these a watch, or if you’ve seen one check out the other.

Also as Momokuri follows a female main character and Rainbow Days a male, seeing the similarities between the two as they go about obsessing over their crush is pretty entertaining.

That moment changes Keita's life forever, as he now finds himself in the midst of a romcom with beautiful girl gamers... or, well, that's how it usually goes. Not with him, however.
