Wow. Just wow. After watching the last episode of Kimikiss, I can say that this was one of the best romance animes I've seen in a long while.

Story
The story is so simple ... it's about true love. We all chase it, but not all catch it. And that's what our two main guys are doing as well. Revolving around the typical high-school environment, two events of the first episode put a whole romance story in motion, a romance story you probably won't forget that easy. It seems so simple and human that you easy forget about this world and live the feelings of the read more

A satisfying Rom/Com that focuses not only on a main boy & girl but on all the stars of the show. This series has a very casual feel to it, with a typical level of teenage angst.

KimiKiss ~ Pure Rouge is a Slice of Life, Romance anime about the daily lives of high school students. Unlike most of the “visual novels” – to – “anime adaptations”, this one does not carry an overall theme or concept but it’s just about normal daily lives of the characters. The story itself is very casual so some may get bored of it but as a person who’s seen read more

Yosha! My newest addiction: Writing reviews! =D Let's start with this one, people!

Story
Well, the ones with brains already saw that this is a romantic gerne. If you don't like romance at all then I think that this anime is nothing for you. I'm really the romance type so of course I like the story from Kimi-Kiss ~Pure Rouge~. So for the ones that also are into romance, you should really watch this. I give the story a 9! <3

Art
Mmm.. what can I say about the art. Well, you can see that this anime is kinda new but it isn't the best art that I've seen read more

Seven girls. Two guys. One school. A lot of romance. I won’t blame anyone for flinching at what those words imply, since the high school romance genre is done to death. But I’m not jaded enough to start bashing unoriginal stories just because they’re unoriginal; any story can be good with enough care. But instead of talking about entertainment philosophies, let’s look at Kimikiss ~Pure Rouge~.

The story opens with a quick scene of a lass arriving in town, followed by a scene where main lead Kouichi wakes up from a dream he can’t remember. But as he wakes, the doorbell rings with that lass standing read more

Recommendations

While not both in an omnibus format, both share the atmosphere, the plots and the feeling.
Similar art with both dealing with the relationship of more than one person.
While in True Tears it is mostly focused on one male main character and his relationships and putting the other a bit in the background, are in kimikiss two male leads.
The atmosphere and the school setting is similar. Both are romance as well.
They both have comedy, drama, and romance put together with some similar characters and similar situations. Both are a definite must watch
I don't recommend this show but i just saw so many similarities.
Through out all of Kimi kiss i was goin" Please don't turn out like school day"
the love triangle is similar by how the mao helped out hoshino and koichi get together.
As for starters, both series takes place in a school life setting. The main characters are in their youths where they experience school life at their fullest with activities, stress, and dating. Obviously, there is drama and romance in both series.

There are a variety of characters in both series and most of them gets involved in one way or another throughout each episode. It doesn't follow a direct route where there's only one linear story. Rather, it involves intertwined arcs. Romance is a major part of both series.
