Lamune is nothing less than a simple light-hearted, comedic romance. But even then it is fairly enjoyable.

The Story: 6/10
In Lamune, every episode begins with a flashback from the past, detailing a section of the childhood relationship of the two main characters, Nanami and Kenji. What was depicted in the flashback is then, in one way or another connected to the main story which admittedly is not much. Lamune adopts a storyline we’ve seen too many times in anime- the ‘childhood friend romance’. Even so, it is one of the best to take advantage of this. It’s comedy revolves around the two main characters and some read more

Lamune is a Slice of Life, Romance, Comedy, Drama about a boy (Kenji) and girl (Nanami) who grew up together and lately have begun to have feelings for each other, but don’t admit to them. Nothing new about this childhood friend romantic set-up; but unlike similar anime that prefer to bombard us with drama, angst and romance, Lamune is more of a calm, relaxed series to go with the rural setting. Each episode tends to begin with a flashback, of some event in their childhood and then proceeds to relate it in some way to the story's present events. Yet with this being a read more

Story: Well the story is pretty normal. It's the perfect example of what real life in the country side is like. The series starts out pretty slow, basically explaining who the two main characters are, why they're so close, and how they first met. Gradually as you watch each episode you learn a little more about the two and their relationship, while also getting introduced to other friends. To be fair, wile starting this series, don't expect to be drawn in by drama, conflict, or a compelling story because this show has next to none at all. It's a simple story about two kids that read more

This title made me cry.

This is one reason why I started liking anime based of visual novels due to the fact that the writing style most visual novels are to my liking. While it is a normal slice of life, where the the story is set in a boondocks where farming and peaceful rural life is thriving, this anime provide a heartwarming atmosphere that will let you feel like living in that place.

Story: It starts out like a normal kind of slice of life where explains about the past of the childhood sweethearts, Nanami and Kenji, telling us the sweet innocent relationship between the two. read more

Both shows center around a pair of childhood friends, who might share more feelings, than a simple friendship.

Though Tonagura! relies on heavily on humor and fanservice, while Lamune is more closer to slice of life and drama genres. Tonagura is based on a manga, Lamune is based on a visual novel (dating sim). 
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 of them are about childhood friends which are almost like brother and sister. But when they have grown up the question is: are their feelings still the same?

And both animes are really cute and pure love stories, you really feel happy when you are watching them.

If you liked Kimikiss, I think you'll enjoy Lamune, and viceversa. 
Very similar content...hard to say... just a similar love story 
both series are harem type anime with one male protagonist and 6 female heroines. plus both female leads rimi sakihata and nanami konoe are both romantically linked to the male leads takumi nishijo and kenji tomosaka, plus both male leads have one of the 6 heroines as a sister (nanami nishijo and suzuka tomosaka) 
6 girls and one guy, though lamune is the dramatic version while koi koi 7 is the comedy version.. plus both series have a tomboyish and tough girls:Hikari Nakazato and Sakuya Kazamatsuri, and pink haired girls yayoi asuka and misora ayukawa
