Seriously, I wasn't expecting anything from this show, I went in and dove deep with very low expectations. To my surprise, this show ended up VERY entertaining.

Do NOT be fooled by the anime opening. They do not play music, nor are they super happy all the time. This shit gets epic, so don't misjudge it.

This isn't a harem, or a slice of life, nor is a romantic comedy: This is drama: The type of drama where you will see girls cry. Heck, even the guys. What surprised me was the fact that I thought it was many of the above categories, but OH BOY read more

On the beginning not so much interesting scenes, later it became more interesting. Honestly, i was little disappointed at the beginning, but the more i watched, everything is getting more interesting. I like that there is a lot of confusion, a lot of romance, a lot of strange events, which is very hard to see off if you are not looking carefully. Basically, the anime is great, and it is recommended to everyone.

Okay, first of all, this is one of my first reviews so bare with me and don't hesitate to message me about what i should improve about, anyways lets get started shall we?

Story- When people look at Myself; Yourself's cover, they usually get the automatic reaction that its a typical harem anime with predictable outcomes, which is not true. Of course, if you totally dislike school life - romance animes then you shouldn't bother wasting your time watching a genre you do not like. Back on topic, the story basically revolves around friendship more then relationship between opposite sex, and let me read more

– Hinako Mochida

Myself;Yourself is primarily a drama genre anime with little-to-medium romance.

The Story: 7/10
The anime starts with our male protagonist, Sana who has come back to his hometown of Sakuranomori, after leaving it 5 years before for the sake of his parents’ business plans. He is surprised to see that most things have not changed, until he meets Yatsushiro Nanaka, one of his best childhood friends when he was read more

Anime: School Days
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 while 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.

Anime: H2O: Footprints in the Sand
Both are anime that seem to be nice and charming but have a awful twist!

Anime: Clannad
These two romance series presents to the viewer likable characters and cute moments. Both are currently airing in the 2007 fall season and have male leads who look similar to one another.

Anime: Yosuga no Sora: In Solitude, Where We Are Least Alone.
Main character moving back to a town he lived in as a child. Dark depressing mood in both anime.

Anime: Clannad: After Story
If you loved clannad you'll also like myself yourself. Because both of these anime series have similar drawings, sad background stories of characters and hopeful expectations from the future and a big romance

Anime: Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.
Both have the "nostalgia" thing going for them with the plot jumping back in forth from past to present. Both also have something happen in the past that has caused the characters to change somehow through the years
