Rumbling Hearts (Kimi ga Nozomu Eien) is another anime that I checked out because of a recommendation on this very site. Right off the bat I’m going to say I have a sort of love/hate opinion of this anime. On the one hand I think the story is pretty good, the characters are for the most part written well and the music is excellent. However there are three underlining issues I had with this show.

First problem. Somewhere along the line in the making of this show the writers somehow got the idea into their heads that this story needed comedy for balance. Sometimes that is read more

Would a doctor really not tell a comatose patient how many years they've been in a coma? I understand slowly introducing a person to the idea that a period of time has in fact passed, but to out right lie and treat the person as if they are an invalid or a mentally retarded person who can't pick up on the concrete clues around them that something is off? This question bothered me to the point I had problems picking up this Anime and it bothers me even after I've finished it.

I have come to the conclusion that a comatose person is honestly not represented read more

Ok to describe this show just role play with me here for just a sec,

lets pretend your at a party and you see a very cute and sweet girl, very attractive and cute and she totally is into you, sparks fly as you talk and one thing leads to another and your heading back to her apartment getting ready to do the naughty bit, but then you sober up and it turns out this girl is not a girl but instead a fat middle aged man that goes by the name of bub, you try to escape but bub pins you down and forces himself read more

I do not have a very positive review of this series. While I do appreciate the effort of bringing the drama aspect to anime, and do say it really was a good marriage of two genres, I really really despise Mitsuki's character. I respect the fact that the author presumably attempted to make a more true-to-life type love triangle, what with not everything meshing together as anticipated, and not everyone coming out with smiles who deserved them, I can't express enough how livid this series made me. I felt that Mitsuki's character was incredibly selfish and self-centered and maybe the main character was a read more

A somewhat unconfident guy and 2+ girls plus a big pack of drama. 
The way the drama unravels is similar Both have to do with loss of memory and jealousy in a love triangle 
Both start off as two people who go out but are only led to tragedy. It starts off all happy and romantic but then it all goes down hill. There are also several other similarities but I don't want to spoil it. Both have a really sad ending. Well....for Saikano it all depends on how you look at it to call it a "sad" or "happy" ending. 
both got intense drama and depression 
Also romance,drama,and also you can feel the life from this anime!Also,like Clannad,Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is full of feelings to friends,who later become lovers.
In Kimi ga Nozomu Eien Haruka is similar to Nagisa. 
The storylines aren't that similar but both animes contain the themes of love, loss and moving on...Both are very beautiful and tearjerking. If you liked Rumbling Hearts, you'll probably like 5 Centimetres per Second :)
