I've had a lot of first impressions when I see an anime. Most of them end up being what I've had predicted while a few changes my perspective.
Myself; Yorself is an example of an illusion. Seeing pictures of anime high school friends in one picture always seem to look like a typical comedy, romance, shoujo or a harem anime. That was what I thought.
To be honest, I was part of the majority who thought "Myself; Yourself" was a harem anime. I've seen Myself; Yourself a number of times in different sites but the only reaction I usually get was "oh another stupid harem anime. give me a break". It took me about a year for me to take the initiative to watch this anime only because one of my favorite Seiyuus, Ami Koshimizu, voice acted the main character. I rarely rate a Romantic-Drama "9" because I rarely see one that can execute well. You can say this anime, has more of a dramatic based genre rather than romance because of the friendship link between the characters. Every episode gives you a glimpse of the story of these characters and true enough the story does get more interesting as you go further. It made me want more and more. Soon enough, I was able to finish this anime in just 2 days (It could have been 1 day if I slept at 3 AM). Yes, the story was that interesting.
I can't deny that the art/animation I see nowadays does progress and becomes much more beautiful than the animes that were made in the late 2000s. But seeing the animes made during that year (Code Geass, School Days, ef-a tale of memories), I'm sure that the art was on par with every anime back then.
I really don't like the Opening "Song" although I love how the Opening "Animation" went (there's a difference). Although, the Ending song is much different. I actually liked the Ending song just because it reminded me of Steins; Gate (same singer) and it felt catchy.
Character development, sure flourished the whole anime series. The characters were explained very well. You can see that their lives were acted on each of the person's lives. Some secrets were revealed during the anime and it did surprise me. I can't say I don't hate a character but then seeing how these characters went by during the anime made me understand how different people can be behind the naked eye.
Knowing that I watched this 13-episode Anime within just 2 days clearly explains how I had a great time watching this anime. I don't think it's the enjoyment that led me to watch the anime in 2 days. I guess it was because I was curious to know what would be next. The anime was such a thrilling anime to watch that I was seeking for more answers from the upcoming episodes. I could have enjoyed this anime much more if only there was a different ending. To be frank, the ending was kind of laid back for me. For me, there was no spark at the ending.
Seeing how an anime can create romance in such a serious dramatic anime won me over. This anime is one of those "don't judge a book by its cover" because if you do then you will surely miss out something worth watching. read more
Sadness, depression, times of complete darkness. Most of us have experienced at least one of these in our lives. The solution is finding ways to cope with it, or change it for the better.
Myself;Yourself. I've been planning on watching this for a while now, little did I expect to find such an intriguing anime worthy of being watched in a single day! Despite the few flaws in the show, this is what most dramas should be like. Romance, fights, a look into people's pasts, and a twist ending all make up an excellent drama.
To start off the review, let's go into the story. Sana is coming back to his hometown for the first time in years. Things have changed, but at the same time, things haven't. He comes to this town with memories of his past, some in which he's trying to piece together to make it whole again, but one thing he does remember were the good times he spent with his friends as children. He then reunites with all of them in High School, happy, eh? At least most of the time. Throughout the story, there's comedy, hints of romance, scandal, and twists that'll make you either flip out or let your mouth hang in awe as to what just happened. This is why I like watching animes like these, they spice up the story with things people never expect to happen, and in the case of Myself;Yourself, most of the twists never end up being happy.
When it comes to reviewing the artwork in an anime, I never really know what to say, it's either a big blank or a simple "It was good", I am never able to create a long paragraph about it, but Myself;Yourself has flawless art. The scenery was beautiful, the characters were portrayed in kind of a way that suits their personalities, and so on.
Sound isn't one of my strongsuits either, but I can say for the most part that Myself;Yourself had excellent voice acting! Surprisingly though, the oldest character in the group (Aoi, a 3rd year in High School) sounded like a chipmunk with too much helium in it's lungs and apparently seemed to get high very often. In other words, her voice made you want to laugh out loud every time she spoke. For the most part it was funny, but at points it was just plain strange.
Oh good, a strongsuit of mine. Characters. I liked them all, or at least most of them. The main character, Sana, seemed to be cool and collected most of the time, but somehow acted like a normal teenager at the same time (says the giant stack of playboy magazines sitting in a box out of reach from girls). Then there's Nanaka, mature and stern most of the time. Aoi, the drugged chipmunk, seemed to be hyperactive all the time, even in the most depressing of times. The twins, you can totally tell they're siblings, they bring the rough comedy to the anime with constant insults and fights breaking out between the two of them. Out of all the characters in the show, I think the only one that I despised almost as much as Sugou from Sword Art Online was the teacher that was always sucking up to the principal and being a douche-bag. Minor role, but he angered me.
Despite the show having some good comedy and romance to it, along with some good stories, the show was... in a word... depressing for a portion of it. Most of the depression happens to be things that would end up spoiling the show for you, so I won't get into those, but I enjoyed the show a lot. I haven't seen many dramas (or at least I don't think I have), so watching this gave me a pretty good idea about what I should be looking for in dramas. Watch it, you'll enjoy it for the most part, just have a box of tissues, just in case. read more
Both shows have similar character designs, even though the personalities in the show are very different. Also, both have themes that follow mental illness and trauma. However, school days focuses more on romance and myself; yourself seems to focus more on character relationships. There were just many times during myself; yourself that reminded me of school days, even though their plots are different.
The story kinda reminded me of School Days. The beginning seems more happy and the ends gets dark. If you understand, I would say that School Days is darker than Myself ; Yourself.
They both start out seeming like your typical anime full of drama and revolving around school but you realize that it isnt your typical anime very early into the series. Both animes have a very dark background and there are always traces of something more sinister lurking around. Both uses forshadowing very well. I personally enjoyed Myself;Yourself more then School Days though.
Both series start off as seemingly innocuous, unassuming, slightly awkward high school harem-ish romantic comedy series but spend the last few episdoes kicking the drama and insanity up to eleven and careening out of control. One gets a hold of itself and pulls together a happy ending; the other... not so much.
Similar characters, similar storyline, similar style. Both animes have similar aspects in one way or another. They both have a sort of "love-trangle" type story, and have a slightly horror-ish vibe to them with eerie scenes. Both seemignly sweet animes, then slowly getting darker and more emotional as the story goes on. You can really feel the characters emotions throughout the animes, and it's very easy to imagine yourself in their shoes. They can make you feel happy, sad, angry, and just about any other mixture of emotions, so you'll never really know what to expect with how you'll feel after you've watched them.
Really dark and sad theme.
Both are Slice of Life that tend to turn strange near the end, and the endings will leave you breatheless..
Both turn kind of dark about halfway in.
The difference is, Myself;Yourself pretty much has a happy ending, while School Days...well...doesn't.
Many moments in Myself;Yourself just reminded me of School Days.
-Both animes focuses very deeply into the story that involves love triangles and one-sided love as well as problems surrounding it.
Have the same feeling......
Both start out very light hearted school based romances with lots of drama which quickly turn much more dark,and both have simlar art and have a clueless male lead(In Myself;Yourself he just isn't told what is happening but in School days he just is oblivious to everything).Differences are Myself;Yourself isn't a harem and actually has likeable charcthers.
Both are anime that seem to be nice and charming but have a awful twist!
Both are as thin on plot and high on melodrama, so if you liked one, chances are you'll like the other.
Both animes have a simular feel to it. As soon as I started watching Myself; Yourself it reminded me of H2O. They both have a quite simular storyline, though it's still different enough to make it original. If you liked one, you'll probably like the other one as well!
Both have around 13 episodes! lol kidding. Both have touchy romance, they don't have stupid ecchi and they're bound to leave a long-lasting impression on your mind with the good looking characters, friendship, the love and the soundtracks. If you're a fan of teh romance genre, this one's a must-watch for you.
i recomend you watch this if you enjoyed h2o becouse they are wery similar , both of these have to do with friendship and familly issues, the drawing style is similar too the character developement is similar and interesting ^^.
I think that "Myself: Yourself" is quite similar to "H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~". Both start with guy coming to town and meeting the girls. Also in the beginning we see ecchi on both anime. Hayami ("H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~") and Nanaka ("Myself: Yourself") have similar characters and changes their personalities because of fire. Voice actress of Nanaka also voiced Takuma ("H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~"). Both Sana ("Myself: Yourself") and Takuma have sad past before coming to the town. But in my opinion "Myself: Yourself" is a little darker than "H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~", but both turn really depressing towards the end.
both anime have alot of drama and are very sad.
These are similar because they make you think, they provoke you and try to relate to you. It's very touching so I suggest them to you.
The female leads in the stories seem to be in a very similar state of mind when meeting the male leads. These two stories in particular are as if they are shoes of the same pair.
