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

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

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

....no amount of numbers in the world could amount to how much Inloved this show. "To Heart" was amazing in both its story and its atmposphere. The story revolves around 2 high seniors, Akari and Hiroyuki, as they get ready for their final year of high school. Akari and Hiroyuki have been friends for years; ever since kindergarten, and Akari may have grown some certain feelings about her best friend after all these years.

...both the sound quality and the art are above par; the animation may look very old, but the anime's from the 1990's (...just the way I like 'em). The show has this read more

Anime: Lamune
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.

Both shows are epsiodic in nature, and both have a nice relaxed feel to them.

Oh, and both shows have a female lead called Akari :)

Anime: Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
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.

If you like this show about pretty much nothing, than you might like this other show about pretty much nothing.

Anime: Piano
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  read more
