Candy Boy is a sweet, good natured slice of life romantic comedy. Right off the bat you should understand that this series revolves around yuri love and an incestuous relationship between fraternal twins. Even saying this though, there is really nothing to be offended about in regards to this series. While normally my creep-o-meter would be signaling its alarm bells, I actually really enjoyed Candy Boy.

The plot in Candy Boy is uncomplicated and revolves around twin sisters Kanade and Yukino and their high school life together. Unlike a lot of slice of life series, Candy Boy's episodes feel like they are read more

Candy Boy is the sweet little story of two sisters living together in a dormitory and their usual lifestyle. But this slice of life anime comes with a twist: the two are romantically affected to each other. Although yuri incest is wincest, the fact stands that there are some that may be offended from the shoujo-ai and/or incest. If this combination works for you, then you'll have no problems enjoying this anime as much as I did.

As with many other anime in the slice of life genre, the story is given to us at the beginning of the anime, but not much of a read more

Candy☆Boy is a series that'll induce an "aww" feeling, given you accept two main premises-- one, it's f/f (shoujo ai). (Please refer to the warning spoiler below for the second premise.) It started off as a seven-minute ONA but I guess it fared well enough since we've got more episodes coming, now each being fourteen minutes long to boot.

Before we get into the review, I'd like to mention a major warning (that is fundamentally SPOILERish): This series has incestual vibes between fraternal twin sisters.

The additional episodes don't seem to push the sisterly relations between the two protagonists as much with the shift read more

I've only ever watched two Yuri animes - Strawberry Panic and this being the second. However, I've also watched quite a lot of romance animes and I can say with confidence that this one blows everything else out of the water when it comes to realism.

It is exactly as the synopsis says, twin sisters are in love with each other - it is an incestual relationship... but hang on is it? This is the real kicker. Their relationship is more like platonic love on steroids. If you're hoping for some Yuri action, passionate kissing etc. then you can forget all about that because these read more

Give off similar feeling, though Candy Boy will leave you flying, sasameki koto is really sweet shoujo-ai as well (:
If you liked one, watch the other one too (duh <(^.^ )> )

Although it's never blatantly obvious, the quasi-implied twincest of Candy Boy would definitely pique the interest of anyone who fully enjoyed the raging lesbo fest of Strawberry Panic. 
reportRecommended by gloomheart
They both provide a warm feeling to them and also you feel jealous for their perfect, amazing lifes lol I know I felt that way ^_^.
They are both are 2 girls kissing with sakura trick is 4 or more.
They are just light-hearted amazing animes that made me think they are really similar just candy boy has shorter episodes I believe... just watch it xD 
reportRecommended by JokerPerson
Some viewers -- and reviewers -- wanted a more serious treatment of the yuri incest angle, and Koi Kaze at least does this with incest. It's a serious drama between a younger sister and older brother, so watch out for what you're wishing for.

Similarity :
+ Both anime about love between siblings

Different :
+ Aki sora is hentai anime
+ Candy Boy is yuri anime with less fanservice 
reportRecommended by Hidayat246
Similarity :
+ Both anime about love between siblings
+ Sakurai Kanade & Asahina Ema have some similarity, they are both difficult adaptation to new place & conditions. (New School & Home)

Different :
+ Brother conflict is reverse harem anime
+ Candy Boy is yuri anime
