It’s funny, when I first started "To Heart" I thought I was going to be in for another harem title, but to my surprise it was nothing like that. This school life anime is probably one of the more layed back and relaxing ones out there!

The main chunk of the story will be Hiro (main male lead) interacting with the female students. Now I know this may sound like a "harem" plot, it isn’t at all though. Whenever he meets one of them that needs help, instead of having a romantic view of them (you know, the whole damsel in distress thing?) he simply helps read more

Nice. That's what this show is. Not thrilling or dramatic or bad, just.... nice.

I first found out about To Heart when I watched Comic Party, and I thought I'd give it a whirl. Unfortunately I watched To Heart 2 first so I wasn't expecting much when I eventually got around to watching this.

That said, I was pleasantly surprised at how different the atmosphere between the two shows actually is. Where the sequel feels quite forced, To Heart is far more natural in the way it progresses. The stories aren't that different between the two, and indeed the theme (harem highschool romance), is generally quite common read more

Ah, the harem genre.

One lovable loser who through some bizarre circumstances ends up surrounded by a group of gorgeous women who all proceed to fall in love with him somehow; and then our protagonist must make the difficult choice of picking the one female cast member to call his own.

While it was always a stupid and sexist premise, it proved to be a very popular format (for an almost entirely male audience). And so, many titles made use of the formula with little to no variation. While these titles lacked creativity, they were still profitable and that allowed the same basic story to be read more

To Heart is easily one of the blandest things I have ever had the misfortune of sitting through. It's complete lack of substance or anything interesting was very frustrating, especially considering that deep down it definitely had some potential that it just never bothered fostering. It was fundamentally boring and had very little to offer over all.
That isn't to say, though, that it did everything wrong. I am willing to give it some credit, as there were some things that I did like about it. The general ascetic of the series was rather nice, having a interesting art style that looked read more

Recommendations

Both series deal with the strong bond between childhood friends who ultimately fall in love. Also, both are episodic in nature, and both are very calm, relaxing animes (there's very little in the way of angst or drama in either of these).

If you enjoyed one then you should enjoy the other.
If you like this show about pretty much nothing, than you might like this other show about pretty much nothing.

Both series contain the romance theme hence may appealing to the shoujo demographic.

There is humor, interesting characters, and has a similar style that gives off a nostalgic feeling of the old school atmosphere. Both series also takes place at a school setting with other characters involved with the typical gags and drama.
both are very cute and a good romace/comedy.
Schoolyard slice-of-life's with romance and a (sometimes alarmingly) upbeat heroine.
Both are "Slice of Life" shows, that are slow paced, have very little plot, a bit of drama (and very small hints at romance), both involve a group of friends and their relationship with the lead character (Piano Main Character: Miu Nomura ||| To Heart Main Character: Hiroyuki Fujita). Both shows lack action, and have a very limited use of humur. Both shows have a bunch of interesting characters (that don't do anything interesting the entire series), and both shows can be considered "coming of age stories". Also both To Heart and Piano are realistic (well To Heart has some non-realsitic parts). However both shows are different takes on this genre. To Heart follows a male lead, while Piano follows the female lead. If you like To Heart, watch Piano! If you like Piano watch To Heart!
