I think we all know how painful it can be to love someone who doesn't love you back. I certainly do, and I don't think I've ever seen an anime series that depicted the loneliness--and very rarely the joy--of one-sided love as well as the shojou ai romcom Sasameki Koto did.

I began watching Sasameki Koto at the very beginning of the year, around the same time I started Junjou Romantica. I could not have picked a better first shojou ai series. Although it is basicly about the love between two girls, it is way lighter and more fun then some of the more dramatic shojou read more

First of all i want to say that "Sasameki koto" was my first Shoujo-ai anime and because of that it kind of changed my view on Shoujo-ai series and all that girl+girl thing.

Story: "sasameki koto" tells us a story about love which seems strange to many of us and that love is between girls no that love which we call "friends" but real love , feelings and wanting to be with some one. The story revolves around few girls Kazama, Ushio and Murasame, Sumika also their many friends which they encounter. Murasame Sumika feel in love with her best Friend Kazama Ushio who falls in read more

Ahh, my very first Shoujou ai Anime... What I would give to remove the show in my brain and watch it again to get that "first time" feeling.

Story 9/10
Sumika Murasame, a high school girl is secretly in love with her best friend Ushio Kazama. Unfortunately, Ushio only likes girls that are cute and small. Sumi is not cute, tall and very athletic. The anime follows exactly the plot of the manga version of the same name (Except episode 12). If this was a stand-alone anime then story rating would have been lower due to the ending of the show (the ending of the show read more

There's nothing wrong with dabbling into some lighthearted yuri, yaoi, or whatever other interesting subgenres the romance tag has to offer. It’s nice to branch out and explore different types of love and how anime handles it every once and awhile. It would be even better if the show actually ended up being something rather good or turned out to be something special, but unfortunately I can’t say that for Whispered Words.

Also known as Sasameki Koto, this anime follows a protagonist named Sumika as she attends school (where else?) with her childhood friend Ushio, whom Sumika secretly has feelings for. Ushio of course has read more

Anime: Aoi Hana
Really similar settings, characters. You couldn't tell Sumi apart from Fumi even if your life was on the line (:
Both sweet shoujo-ai, slice of life animes.
Though sasameki koto is a bit better imo (:

Anime: Strawberry Panic
Both similar in the fact that they have yuri elements in it. They don't go overboard in the way strawberry panic does 8[ Both of these anime are funny and cute. Sasameki Koto may be a little more related to a slice of life.

Anime: Candy Boy: Nonchalant Talk of the Certain Twin Sisters in Daily Life
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 <(^.^ )> )

Anime: Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl
Although they might not be similar in pace, and Kashimashi involves a boy changing into a girl, they both contain soft and nice artwork with cute characters you're bound to fall in love with.

Anime: Azumanga Daioh
Comedy around high school girls. Though Sasameki koto has some yuri & romance parts leading to slightly heavy moments, the series is 80% funny and highly enjoyable.
Both series got good pace, arrangement and scripts.

Anime: Joshi Kousei: Girl's High
both series featured post-credits scenes after the closing sequence as an epilogue to the main episode
