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.

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

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

Everyone has a different love story to tell. Perhaps you fell in love through sheer persistence. Maybe it took you multiple tries (and many heartbreaks) to find the person just right for you. Maybe your love was unrequited. Or even better, you were just a bystander to the war of love.

Kimikiss Pure Rouge is an anime that tells the tale of three different love stories with each different in the way the couple approach their relationship (hint: the storylines are similar to my opening paragraph). Although I say "different," I mean that the romance is different but all the characters are friends with each 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

Anime: Amagami SS
While not both in an omnibus format, both share the atmosphere, the plots and the feeling. 
reportRecommended by Bondius
Anime: True Tears
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.
