Amaumi Haruhiko is a high school student who attends Shimano Academy in a town called Narasakicho. Narasakicho contains an unknown rainbow which constantly overlooks the town and is related to granting a magical wish called "Gift". Gift is a once-in-a-lifetime present between two people.

As a child, Haruhiko has been close with his childhood friend, Kirino, until he obtains a new non-blood sister by the name of Riko. Haruhiko develops a strong relationship with Riko until they sadly depart due to the fact Haruhiko's father could no longer support the two of them.

After some times passes by, Riko finally returns to the town of Narasakicho, and along with Kirino, starts to attend Shimano Academy with Haruhiko. The series revolves around the relationship among these main protagonists and slowly reveals the story behind both Gift and the rainbow.

To tell you the truth, I did not expect much from these series..
but then, it seems I was wrong xD.

Story: the story is the usuall love triangle that I have seen so many times.
A childhood friend and a male protagonist getting along when another old friend that the male character had a crush on( usually) comes back and there goes the triangle. However, the story was, nonetheless, good. It wasn't boring, although there wasn'nt anything that stood out that much.

Art: the art overall was pretty good, and the figures didn't seem out of place. The characters were drawn nicely. The art did read more

Gift: Eternal Rainbow is yet another anime adaption of an H-game, usually im not into these kinds of anime but this series really proved me wrong on almost every aspect.

Now on to the story:
When I first read the summary I immediatly backed away thinking that its just one of those randomness anime that have no plot, But as above I was proven wrong and im really glad I was wrong, Gift: Eternal Rainbow has a very nice plot, quite confusing during the first half of the series and it starts at a rather slow pace, but as you progress through series It just keeps getting read more

"Precious gifts can be given even without relying on a miraculous power."

I feel like this phrase alone was indirectly against religions that believed in miracles, but please don't take me on that. A-Anyways, time to review!

Story: 9/10

Let me begin by stating my first impression that I was going to put the story down to a 6 or even a 5, but I was really wrong. This story started off happy, then kept getting better and better as it progressed. A good story always comes with a a good setting, problem and climax, which is why I would think this is a good story. Aside from read more

"Gift ~eternal rainbow~" is yet another show based on an H-Game. Really, what isn't based on an H-Game nowadays? In any case, I decided to watch it simply on the basis that it had no reviews on AnimeNfo. As such, I did not have high expectations. However, it turned out to be a decent show. By no means was it anything special, but it was somewhat enjoyable.

STORY: 5/10

The story of "Gift" isn't a particularly great one, and it doesn’t always make a whole lot of sense. Not to mention that the gimmick of this series, the Gifts themselves, are read more

Both animes focus on an illegitimate brother and sister relationship (although in both cases they're not blood related) involving the male protagonist. And while this love in coming into fruition, other girls are also typically interested in this male protagonist. In addition, magic plays a vital role in either helping this relationship develop or hindering it in both animes. One thing to note is that Da Capo has more harem (i.e. more girls interested in the main character) relative to Gift.
both series have a recurring theme each: gift has a rainbow while wind has an airship.. plus both series are focused on romance with a little comedy, and both series have girls skilled with a sword: hikari tsukishiro and rinka hokazono, and have pretty blond haired ladies: nozomi and chisa fujimiya(hey! both characters have the same surname)
same romance style, also involves a love triangule, contains a mix of supernatural, in tayutama its demons and shoujo girls in gift its a magical rainbow over the city that grants people wishes
Just like the Anime , Omamori Himari Have 5 Girls , and some thing with Magic .
and Characters are pretty much Similar .
Both series involves a lucky guy surrounded by girls with some of them having feelings for him. The setting also seems a bit similar as well as involving school drama, misunderstandings, and love trials. The art of both series are also done well.
Motive of childhood friend, the love triangle, main character don't have one of parents, exterior appearance of characters and their personalities are quite similar, and alike atmosphere- light-hearted story intersected with few problems. I recommend.
