Naoki Kuzumi, a junior in high school, had lost his parents in an accident five years ago, and is living with his aunt, uncle, and cousin Matsuri. He always thought his life was ordinary, besides the fact that he can't remember what happened in his youth. One sunny day as he is taking a nap on a bench, a redheaded girl -- Mikoto -- literally falls on him from the sky. For some reason, she thinks he's her younger brother. Naoki's time period is a temporal shelter for those in the future, when many are suffering from an incurable disease. When she heard her younger brother Yuusuke had been taken to Naoki's time, Mikoto herself had gone back in time.

Tsuki wa Higashi ni Hi wa Nishi ni - Operation Sanctuary, or otherwise known as Hani Hani, is another one of those series that is better than it seems to be and has recieved very little love, and that's why I'm writing a review on it ^w^


Hani Hani is about a high schooler called Naoki who lives a normal life with his cousin Matsuri and childhood friend Honami. One day a girl called Mikoto appears before him with big white wings and falls on him, and in an instant his life changes, mainly for the better.
Basically, the story starts out a a typical slice of read more

In both animes there are a lot of girls and one guy interacting with them.
There is also some romance and both are set in a high school.

Anime: Clannad
Clannad and Tsuki wa Higashi ni Hi wa Nishi ni -Operation Sanctuary- might be similar in it's story and such..Operation Sanctuary or also known as Hani Hani and Clannad are very similar with the Characters and Story..But Clannad has more Drama^^

-Characters <== Look/Appearance,Attitude,Habits etc..
-Story <== Life
-Genres <== [Well you guys will know that!]

In Hani Hani the characters are not really that good in acting but in Clannad the characters are well rated :)

But Hani Hani has a good life story as  read more

Anime: Yoake Mae yori Ruriiro na: Crescent Love
In both of these series the characters are very standard and are rather recycled. That's the first similarity I noticed. The second is how long it took for the main guy to admit his feelings for the main girl. Also, the main girls are so pretty!
Both are laid back series and are generally a nice watch with storylines that aren't too intense ;3

Anime: W: Wish
In both anime the main character has lost his parents and his memory when he was younger, but starts remembering things when he meets a strange girl who seems to know him.
