Fumihiko Matsumaru is an average salaryman with no girlfriend. He invited his colleague Miss Tanaka to a movie but was stood up. Right at the time he was about to toss tickets into a trash can, a cute girl appeared and asked him not to waste those two tickets. After movie and dinner, he escorted her home and found they live in the same neighborhood, yet unfortunately her apartment caught on fire hours later. Having nowhere else to stay, rookie seiyuu Aka Onda moved to Matsumaru's place, and the two had started a "more than friend but not yet lovers" relationship under the same roof while keeping this secret from their employers.

Alright, this review will kinda be a rant. We meet the main character who wants to go to the movies with the girl he likes but she meets with another man. The main character meets with the main female character. The huge thing that I dislike about the main character is that he still wanna kinda stay by the side of the girl that dumped him being indecisive. I can't understand why he is so damn kind.

Animation - 7
nothing special, but I kinda liked it somehow.

Sound - 8
The soundtracks were appropriate for each scene

Character - 3
The main female character didn't recieve much development, and read more

This is pretty much everything I look for in a romance anime.

There is nothing better than that last kiss in a romance anime.
Personally, if there isn't one I usually give a bad rating.

Only con is that it's too short.

There is nothing quite like sitting down to a nice down-to-earth anime. Sometimes those are are hard to find, yet here we are with Rec. It is the story about a guy and girl living under the same roof. Seems kind of cliche, until it actually gives a legit reason: her house burned down (sorry I saw the title and the burning house and immediately thought of mix tapes, I'm so ashamed). I know the length of the episodes seems intimidating, but it was not bad at all. I applaud the series for actually giving us something to enjoy while putting it in half the read more

Anime: Koe de Oshigoto! The Animation
They are both about seiyu, nothing more nothing less.  
reportRecommended by zen-hikka
Anime: NHK ni Youkoso!
Both are about young adult people and their dealing with everyday life. Both are realistic, mostly serious stories with a little humour. There is also romance storyline, but also rather realistic, seinen-oriented.

Anime: Love Get Chu
Love Get Chu is about a group of aspiring seiyuu, while REC is about one rising seiyuu. It's rather difficult to find seiyuu anime, but both of these shows are cute and addicting.

Anime: Nodame Cantabile
extremely similar atmosphere. developing characters and relationships. brilliant 
reportRecommended by sugarplumfairy
Anime: Doujin Work
Both series are about working hard towards a goal. While REC focuses more on romance, Doujin Work focuses on comedy... but both have hints at each. Also, the main character in both shows look a lot younger than they are meant to be. 
reportRecommended by heza
Anime: Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
Both have an intresting storyline, and both develops around the "voice acting" (It's a minor thing on Sakurasou, while it's one of the main theme of Rec).
