Alien girlfriend, fan service, pretty much boring storyline both ways :/ Even written by the same guy, the plots seem to nearly overlap.

palaeologus palaeologus says

The same producers and staff, some of the same voice talent, a similar magical girl theme = one of the closest "kinship" relationships among anime.

kincokinco kincokinco says

Both have the same director, and the first episode has the same feeling and scenarios as the first episode of Please Teacher. So if you love'd Please Teacher you are going to love Ano Natsu de Matteru or vice versa :]

Toradora!

Toradora!

Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for...

the pleasant and fun atmosphere between all the characters in both shows reminded me of the other. With an easygoing pace to boot, check out the other if you liked the chemistry between all the characters

Drasticc Drasticc says

Well the character style seem very similar, and the flow and pace is well done.  Most Rom/Coms fail when it comes to originality, yet these two seem to pull it off.

MindlessHooligan MindlessHooligan says

Both are good drama-romance related shows even though Ano Natsu de Matteru takes a Sci-fi spin and Toradora! is more slice of life

Kids on the Slope

Kids on the Slope

Lonely Kaoru Nishimi has lost count of how many times he has moved schools thanks to his father's naval career. Newly landed in Kyushu, he finds most of his classmates instantly antagonistic towards him and suspicious of his elite background. Only two other students seem not to mind who he is – the infamously abrasive Sentarou and the gentle Ritsuko...

Waiting in the Summer (Ano Natsu de Matteru) and Kids on the Slope (Sakamichi no Apollon) contain a group of friends, school life, love triangles and an art form (filming and music respectively).

I think that if you liked one you'll probably like the other because of these elements, including the love and friendship story.

Both of these shows are charming and bittersweet. The clumsy way the characters try to express their feelings for each other is similar, as is the drama that results because of people's romantic interest. I'd recommend both to people who like a tangled mess of love triangles.

ofall ofall says

the "love triangles" in both are similar. in both, person A likes person B who has been friends with since childhood and is in love with person C, who likes person D, likes person E, who likes person D back. The way the characters interact with each other is similar and the both end in a way that may make you shed a few tears, but its happy.
