After a chance encounter with one of the most beautiful girls in school, the third year student Morishima Haruka, Junichi finds himself spending time with her, carrying books for her or having her unexpectedly jump on his back and act as she's a jockey and he's her horse. Soon enough, Junichi becomes romantically interested in Haruka which leads to...

If you don't know where you're from, then you don't know where you are, and you don't know where you're going. It's a fairly trite adage, but like most old sayings there's an element of truth to it. When it comes to visual media though, such sentiments seem to go out of the window, across the fields, and off into the wild blue yonder, especially where adaptations are concerned.
So where does that leave Amagami SS?
A number of people may already be familiar with the fact that the series is yet another adaptation of a dating sim, and given that this is the spiritual successor to Kimikiss, it's only natural that Enterbrain would attempt to emulate the relative success of the latter game and its anime adaptation. Unlike its predecessor though, Amagami SS decides to take a different approach with the storyline, and breaks things up into bite-sized relationship pieces that supposedly makes them easier to swallow, which works ... kind of.
The series is split up into six short stories (and one "special" episode), that recount Tachibana Junichi's quest for high school love, and how he finds it with six different girls (and before you ask, no, this isn't School Days all over again). Along the way various relationship shenanigans ensue which cause the usual misunderstandings, reconciliations, attractions, repulsions, etc, etc.
Now on the surface Amagami SS looks like the common or garden harem romantic comedy (but with the harem aspect applied in a different way). The plot follows the game's methodology by offering up multiple heroines for the protagonist to pursue, and while some may find this a refreshing approach, it's not really original as the series attempts to mask its shortcomings by adopting different narrative styles from one tale to the next.
The biggest problem with short stories is that there needs to be enough content and context within the plot to justify the actions, thoughts and emotions of the characters, and it's surprising that Amagami manages to offer some semblance of a storyline over the course of each tale. Then again, the majority of development points where both the plot and the characters are concerned have really been done to death in anime and manga, so it's no surprise that there's at least a half decent story in there.
After all, if you give enough monkeys enough time they can apparently produce Shakespeare (although it does make one wonder where they keep him).
Each individual tale is pretty decent in its own right, but when one considers them as part of the whole a different picture begins to appear. What emerges are a series of contradictory actions and behaviours that don't really seem to make sense. Now these could be explained away by assuming that people act one way with one person, and another way with someone else, and so on, and one could easily view Amagami in this light. The problem is that this assumption ignores the portrayals of the characters in the previous stories, effectively making them little more than blank canvasses. To further compound this, certain characters seem to be clueless about the circumstances around people they've known for years.
Still, if one simply treats them as a series of short stories then they can be entertaining, but the plot for each is nothing special, and the formulaic approach to each tale is, at times, a bit too familiar, and offers very little in the way of innovation, and rather a lot in the way of predictability.
It's pretty obvious from the artwork that there is a large degree of genericism inherent in this anime, and Amagami does nothing to break away from the stereotypes. The high school setting, town and surrounding environs are nicely designed and detailed, but when it comes to rom-com anime, once you've seen one high school, you've pretty much seen them all. Granted there are a few exceptions to the rule, but in general there's not much difference between the various depictions on offer.
The design principle is a little bit strange in one respect (which I'll come back to in a bit), as the characters are nicely envisioned, but are also as generic as they come (much like a lot of things in this anime). That doesn't mean they're poorly realised though, as they're clearly based on Enterbrain's designs from the games, and coupled with some decent animation and backgrounds, they do give the show a familiarity that can sometimes be mistaken for quality. The acid test occurs when one compares the series to its spiritual predecessor, and although Kimikiss was produced by a different animation studio, there are a number of similarities that stand out, not the least of which is the look of the heroines.
But simply looking like another show doesn't mean that the design and animation is substandard, and in all honesty Amagami does manage to hold it's own in the visuals department. It simply could have been better than it is, and it's puzzling why this isn't the case, especially for such a popular gaming franchise.
One of the better aspects of the series is the music, specifically the manner in which it's used rather than the actual tracks played throughout the anime (which are fairly routine affairs, but that's pretty much expected by this point). There are far too many shows out there that play music for no specific reason, so it's nice to watch a series that treats silence as golden for a change, and this is something that works in Amagami's favour as it allows the viewer to focus on the characters without having to suffer through tunes that sound a lot like the music played in just about every other high school rom-com/drama ever made.
That said, the music in itself isn't bad per se. It's simply ... generic (there's that word again), and even with two opening themes and six ending themes (sung by the lead actress from each character arc), there's little on offer that really stands out. Granted there are some decent enough songs (the law of averages and all that), but in all honesty this is probably nothing more than "when you're given lemons, make lemonade", or in this case, when you're given a romantic comedy drama, make a cheesy love song.
Which leaves only the acting, and in this respect Amagami is a bit of a mixed bag. Maeno Tomoaki plays the role of Junichi rather well (even though it's a bit like playing the role of a wet paper bag at times), and the strength of his portrayal gives much needed support to the lead actress roles.
See, here's the problem. No matter how good the seiyuu are, there's a limited amount that can be achieved in four episodes. Granted the actors and actresses have cameos throughout the series, but it's nowhere near enough time for them to truly come to grips with their characters. In this respect Kimikiss is actually superior, as by the end of that anime the seiyuu had grown accustomed to their roles and were able to play their parts with a confidence that, with the obvious exception of Maeno (who plays the only continuous lead character), none of the seiyuu in Amagami can match.
All of which leads to the characters themselves, and in a nutshell they're as generic (I seem to be using that word a lot these days), as they come, but once again that doesn't automatically mean that they're bad. Junichi could very well be a poster boy for harem lead males, and fits just about every stereotype going, especially the ones about nice guys and being a little slow on the uptake. That said, he's a pleasant enough character, and as the only lead in focus throughout the series there is some development to be had, but the nature of the story dictates that this tends to be repetitive.
Unfortunately the female leads aren't as clearly defined, and the reason for this is the relatively small amount of screen time they get. While they also grow as characters, this is tempered with a necessary urgency that precludes any substantial development. The supporting characters also suffer from the "resetting" of their personalities as this leads to repetitive behaviours and actions that simply don't go anywhere, and add nothing more than inane by-plays to the main narrative.
Amagami SS isn't a bad show though, and it does have its plus points. The relationship mechanics are handled in a reasonable manner, and the characters, especially the male lead, aren't as wishy-washy as some I could name. The problem is that instead of trying something original, director Hiraike Yoshimasa and AIC have opted to follow a "tried and tested" method that will yield results when it comes to DVD sales and merchandising, but only in the short term, and this makes one wonder why a hugely popular game franchise like Amagami has an adaptation that is only passing good.
The series is enjoyable to a degree, but it's still nothing more than one amongst many romantic comedies in anime, especially where schools are concerned.
Given the popularity and fervour surrounding the games one would expect AIC to expend more effort on making the anime adaptation better than it is, especially where things like plot and design are concerned. Granted there's only so much one can do in that respect, but the overuse of stereotypes means that the whole series plays out like nothing more than a glorified advert for the game(s). Like so many other game adaptations, the producers, director, animation studio, and just about everybody else in the making of this series have failed to realise the what fans really want. Instead of offering something that is an evolution of the franchise, we're treated to nothing more than a vapid retelling of the same old story. Even though the Amagami tries to be a little different with it's approach, one cannot laud the attempts to hide this anime's failings, especially the overtly generic design and plot, characters that don't really get the kind of attention needed to raise the level of the series, and an almost blind obedience to formula.
In a very odd way, Amagami SS is a clear case of too many girls, not enough time, and the decision to make it in the first place seems to have had little to do with wanting to tell a story, and more to do with letting everyone know how good the games are.
I suppose I can chalk this up as another "victory" for the marketing department. read more
"Nii nii no baka" - Miya Tachibana
To put it simply, the combination of each of the heroines to the main protagonist is like a fireworks show. All of them are pretty.
The Story: 9/10
The story starts with our main male protagonist Junichi Tachibana being stood up on a Christmas Eve date which occurred two years ago. Having a hard time warming up to others, he does not have a girlfriend. In the seven arcs which comprises of four episodes each,(except for Risa Kamizaki who is given one episode) each arc is given one main heroine girl in which Junichi is their personal love interest. Each arc is set in a parallel universe, so the jumps from arc to arc do not follow up. Each arc is unique in itself. Not only are you given a different girl for each arc, but the circumstances and problems encountered are all different for each girl. This brings a little more flavor to the anime rather than being around the same issue. The only thing that affects the main story line that isn't changed in each arc is the fact that Junichi was stood up, so each arc starts from the same point as all the other arcs do with the characters being in the same relationship with Tachibana each time unless it is the heroine girl. The pacing of the story is about the same in each arc, but there would be times where you’d have little segments from the past being put in and the switches are noticeable so don’t worry with not being able to keep up. Each of the arcs endings are very satisfying.
The Art: 9/10
The art in Amagami SS was fluent and definitely consistent. The art style was about the same for each character, though their physical appearance may look quite different the outlines are still the same - it doesn’t become annoying though. The color shading was very neat and precise, the backgrounds astonishing. There were some sweet lake scenes where you could really appreciate the art. Color overall in the anime went very well with the atmosphere created by the main girl's emotion. There were times where the background would blur a little bit but you rarely take much notice of it. The art was not up to the particular par of Kyoto Animation (known for Clannad) but was very watchable for an anime aired in 2010. Overall the art was very fitting for the story in Amagami. The use of colour at different angles makes each scene enticing and memorable.
The Sound: 10/10
Sound in Amagami SS was very crisp and clear. The OP, 'I Love' is an immensely addicting song for a romance anime. The EDs were sung well, and one thing to note is that each main heroine sings her own version of the closing song. The voice acting here was very smooth. Each of the main girls’ voice suited the type of appearance and personality they had. Another thing to note is that Amagami SS does not come in a dubbed form- for all those dubbed watchers out there-, from what I have searched. There might be a couple of fan dubs but it is doubted they’ll be any better than subbed.
The Characters: 9/10
The characters were all unique. We are presented with Tsukasa, Haruka, Sae, Ai, Rihoko and Kaoru as the six main girls and Risa as the seventh. Each of the girls has their own unique traits, hobbies and personalities, of which all of them are very entertaining and likable (depending on what type of person you are). Tsukasa appears to be a kind class representative, Haruka the popular senior, Ai and Sae as Miya’s friends, and the two childhood friends Rihoko and Kaoru. Junichi, the main male is kind, thoughtful and slightly perverted, but this side of him always ends up to be used in a form of comedy which ended up being very repetitive- overused until it just wasn't funny. The supporting characters do not have much effect on the story line; in fact, they don't really do much at all. There is little-to-no development of them at all, but it does not get agitating, unless one of them was your favourite character. In the Kaoru arc, there was a narrator speaking what was going on in Junichi’s mind sometimes. This was only slightly bothersome though, but it’s assured some people just won’t like it.
The Enjoyment: 10/10
If you are new to romance or drama Amagami SS might be a good choice to be introduced to the genre, if not it might all seem a little cliché. But I don’t care; I’m a sucker for cliché. Amagami SS first started in the form of a game, which was the adapted into an anime. I’ve seen some manga of Amagami, and it goes into a little more detail than the anime- not that the anime hasn’t touched on the subject at all but that it shows what is occurring at an event much better. Re-watching this anime definitely added to my personal enjoyment of the series. The satisfaction in seeing your favourite pair come together in the arc is what makes me come back to it. The anime was very memorable, even a few days after I had finished but I have to admit that it’s very less in my mind now as with all the other awesome anime I have watched.
Thanks for reading my review, or even parts of it- I don't blame you for reading all of it, but again, thanks you.
Bwahahaha! This anime is starting to be pretty fun, to say the least. I didn’t expect such awkward, but interesting events. Usually one would expect the typical stereotypical actions set in a high school environment, but recently I’ve been surprised.
As this is based off a dating sim game, my first impression was that this anime may be similar to a "harem scenario" like in Ichigo 100% only with no ecchi or Clannad. Even though it is far too early to make such a claim, every other female seem to see the male protagonist only as a good friend, not a romantic candidate seen in most romance harems. But then that claim is faulty since the female the male protagonist was interested in saw him only as good friend but soon changed later after the male protagonist started to pursue her. Courting goes a long way, not surprisingly.
So far, the story has been somewhat unpredictable, in terms of the events in the relationship of the couple. You'd think you'd get the hang of it the first and a little bit of the second ep, but then this anime throws curve balls. You don't really know quite what to expect, like the kind of unpredictability similar to Nishino-and the male protagonist in Ichigo100% with a good dosage of crazy weird fun. In addition, in a dating sim game, the player has the choice to court a number of females. The same concept applies in this anime, only a different female is courted by the male protagonist in each arc. Because of the number of girls that "seem" to be possible choices based from the OP/Intro, we'll probably see a lot of interesting relationships. I think this "date all the girls" is somewhat of a smörgasbord of different relationships that everyone may try to enjoy, if that isn't too offensive, female reviewer readers. [It's not like there are any "dating sim" animes based on a female protagonist's perspective. For example, a female dating each of a bunch of guys.]
--- [I stand corrected. There are female dating sim games.]
This is not the kind of stereotypical story that you'd find in many high school stories. Boy meets girl, boy courts girl, boy woos girl with many romantic attempts. For the most part, only the latter doesn't match. Due to the awkward personality of the female that Tachibana is interested, the story takes an interesting but embarrassingly giddy turn. (Like, if you see a couple doing something completely embarrassing and stupid out in public, you just squirm uncomfortably thinking "Oh lord, please stop.") Yet this is only the Tachibana-Haruka arc. There are still other arcs to go, possibly even "funner" than this one.
Art is pretty decent. Very clear and refined. I don't mind art too much as long as it's satisfactory. You won't find anything irritable like gigantic eyes or any weird facial shapes. For the most part, people are drawn to be as realistic as an animated show can possibly allow.
With the embarrassing, squirmy atmosphere starting to happen, the sound goes a long way. It is no doubt exquisite. Each piece with its respective instrumentation fits the atmosphere perfectly. No worries here.
As for the characters, the two main characters of interest in each arc (At least based on the Tachibana-Haruka arc) develop nicely, although in a "new" way. I say new because there's the interaction between a naive female and the somewhat experienced male. Typically, it's the other way around, the female leading a relationship with the inexperienced and stupid nervous male. The "supporting" characters though stick to their same old self, hardly any development, but their time will come with the upcoming episodes. They don't seem to provide significant obstruction, competition, except maybe support. Understandably, the somewhat experienced male protagonist does make sense since it may be compared to the main character, who seems like a guy that knows how to date a girl excluding the "user" factor, in the game.
Overall, this isn't what I expected at all. I thought it would be a pretty quaint story since most dating sims follow the same "plot line." Meet the girls, choose one, court her, and well, what comes after that varies. But in a sense, the male in a dating sim is required to adapt to the tastes of the female, in most cases. Therefore, the relationship between this anime and the game seem very clear, and thus offer some level of predictability to the story of the anime.
Surprisingly, each episode gradually introduces a "fun" and embarrassing "I wanna punch you in the face" squirmy feeling, at least for now. It may seem cute, to an extent. In my opinion, I feel like we've grown out of these "cute-sy" moments; it's nice to see a flash back to some of our embarrassing attempts at romance, however embarrassing yet horrible funny they may be. In the end, this anime pretty much follows a straightforward dating sim game, even though it does have its moments.
If you're a bit tired of the many trite romance harems, and you're looking for something new this anime is for you. Keep in mind that not everyone will like the arcs. I thought that arcs later on were worse than the beginning arcs. Especially this latest one about that Freshman girl, but this is all due to my own perspectives of an attractive girl. This anime is pretty much a "serious" anime with the occasional comedic remarks, but no change in art. Same art style throughout. It isn't like in Bleach where when one of the characters make some snide or hilarious remark the art suddenly changes to a child-like one. With all these different arcs with different girls, one has to admit that this is pretty much satisfying the masses of the male population, at least in terms of their taste in women. Although, this as a result, causes the anime to suffer drastically. Even I find it difficult to plow through arcs with girls I dislike.
Even if it is high school romance, it is nice to see a naive, "cutesy" romance blossom every once in a while.
P.S. In my opinion, there have been some definite changes in character appearances compared to the manga. I think the anime version is better since the characters seem to look more mature than those in the manga. But that's just me. read more
"That was Christmas Eve, two years ago. She never showed up to the date." - Junichi Tachibana, Episode 1
No no, that's not what the story is all about. Sorry to scare you about a what you thought was a spoiler. Well here goes my longer-than-normal review, because there is so much to talk about.
Amagami SS hit every note correctly. As a fan of romance, it was a very, very, enjoyable series.
Story: You have Tachibana Junichi. He has a calm and kind personality, and can be a pervert sometimes with his friend Masayoshi Umehara. As quoting above, he was stood up two years ago on Christmas Eve. That event derailed his happiness ever since. It affected him so much that he even made his closet into his bedroom. Present time, he now looks to overcome it. He starts to take interest in a popular senior at school named Haruka Morishima. She eventually makes Junichi her "pet" letting him carry her stuff. He then thinks it's a good opportunity to confess. He does, but all the hope he had in a relationship quickly shattered a couple seconds later. "I prefer someone who's reliable and older than me." (Haruka Morishima, Episode 1). Well, back to old ways now, right? Wrong. Junichi decides that he will keep trying.
Well that's a preview of Amagami SS for you. I can write so much more, but I will try to keep it short and sweet for now. The story is set into multiple arcs, in omnibus format, meaning that these arcs do not happen in the same timeline, and happens in alternate universes. Also, as you can see from the above, the story is really entertaining. Some people will walk away from this anime saying it's cliche and all, but there's not that much cliche to begin with, or it could be that I was too busy enjoying this series.
Character: Character development is a must for a good romance, and Amagami does it right. Different arcs mean multiple girls. Actually, you have 6 different ones to choose from. The popular and fan favorite Morishima Haruka, the childhood friend Tanamachi Kaoru, the shy and cute Nakata Sae, the other childhood friend Sakurai Rihoko, Miya (Junichi's sister)'s friend Nanasaki Ai, and Class-rep Ayatsuji Tsukasa. They all have different traits, which makes each arc very unique and entertaining to watch. I gave it a 9 for reasons withheld, if you finish the series, you'll probably agree with me.
Art: The artwork is just crisp and clear, and the art makes the characters look very nice. No, I'm not talking about Morishima Haruka in her Santa costume, well, you can Google it and judge the art by the pictures, but in general, it looks really nice. I wouldn't say it's identical to Kimi ni Todoke, but it's similar in terms of it's clarity in the art.
Sound: I have the OST, why? Because it's one of the OSTs that I enjoy listening to. The background music fits really well with what's happening in the anime, whether it'd be Junichi depressed in his closet again, or it could be the first time meeting someone. The OPs, I Love and Kimi no Mama de are one of the most catchiest songs I have heard in an anime. The EDs feature the main girl of the arc singing their own song. I can't recall if there were multiple insert songs, but there was one insert song that I couldn't stop listening to. Anyways, the sound and music were just beautifully organized for Amagami. It made everything natural and added the atmosphere to your viewing experience.
Enjoyment: Amagami SS was a really enjoyable series to me, and probably one of my favorite romance anime out there. It combines well-done romance, with a generous portion of comedy. If this were a game (which it is), then the replay value would be very high, and it'd be a really good game as well. Before I go, some final words: If you're starting into the Romance genre, or a fan of Romance, or even just into comedy, give this series a chance.
Overall Rating: 9 read more
While Amagami SS does not have an incestuous relationship as a central plot point, both shows are presented in an omnibus format that allows the viewer to experience all of the available 'good-end' paths for each girl.
Both have an arc for every girl. It's not like Clannad or Kanon, oh no, but in these shows they go back in time and the main character picks out a different girl.
Yosuga's got graphic nudity and sex scenes, while Amagami's more... your average harem anime.
The concept is the same, we get to see all of the possible ending with the different girls. But... with more "hentai" ;p
Both feature a variety of girls getting together with the protagonist. After a story arc is finished, the story resets and things take a different route, leading to a romance with a different girl.
While a story arc in Amagami SS is four episodes long, the ones in Yosuga no Sora aren't as linear, some consisting of barely two eps while others take longer.
Amagami SS is a casual romance anime. Yosuga no Sora features nudity and sex scenes.
Amagami SS takes place during the winter. Yosuga no Sora takes place during the summer.
Both Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are based off a visual novel (Thank you Akitso for correcting me), and they both may look like a Harem anime, but they concentrate on ONE heroine. Please correct the following statement if I'm wrong.
Amagami SS seem to trigger different heroine route from the beginning of the game while Yosuga no Sora seem to contain Heroines which that can be triggered in the middle of the game. Therefore, Amagami SS will air 4 episodes for each heroine while Yosuga no Sora might air shorter epsiodes for different heroines.
If you liked the idea of watching different heroine as if you are playing a game, I suggest that you watch Amagami SS as well.
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs for each heroine that can either or not be diverging from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
Amagami SS - is Light Romance
Yosuga no Sora - is extreme romance xD
But the main character experiences with different girls in different timespace in different situation
Both anime shows use an Omibus format, or a format that allows you to see the protagonist pair up with different people. However, Yosuga has so much nudity and sexual content that it borderlines as a hentai. Amagami SS is more tame than Yosuga as sex is merely implied.
Both shows story line is taken from dating game, and both shows have short storys of the main character chosing difrent girl witch lead to difrent ending.
from what i have read, and what i have watched.. i know its based off euroge
aka a dating game. so basically there is one main guy who gets to try and see how things would be with each different girl, thus like a dating game.
Both extremely repetitive with different scenerios of main guy with the girls around him.
Yosuga no Sora is just a more (unnecessarily) graphic/mature version
Both anime acts like a visual novel where the storyline is separated by different arcs... and girls... and shows how will one guy end up if he goes out with a certain girl.
Both are romantic animes. Where each girl gets episodes with the main guy portaginist then time rewinds and a new girl gets episodes with with guy
Even though the there isn't anything incestual about Amagami SS or in anyway means provocative, it's very similar to Yosuga no Sora in a more softer/cuter sense. Each girl gets to have her own time and her own episodes with the main character. Both are very good series.
Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are romance anime that are separated into small arcs that focus on an individual girl and her growing relationship with the main male protagonist. This is a unique trick that one does not see too often in game adaptions. Both series feature good and well developed characters mixed with amazing animation. Yosuga no Sora is certainly more ecchi based and is meant for mature audiences, while Amagami SS is much more lighthearted and will leave you with a wonderful warm feeling in the end. If you liked watching one of them you wont regret trying out the other.
Well, it's obvious . Do I really need to tell something ?
Every girl has her own arc.
Yosuga is more .. well .. there is twins .. and also umm.. it's +18.
Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are presented in omnibus harem format, with each girl having their own "good end" in her arc, therefore allowing male lead to "end up with" all main heroines without girls turning into yandere and fight with each other. In amagami, each girl takes up exactly 4 episodes, and the story takes place in the same time. In Yosuga no Sora, each arc takes up either 2 or 3 episodes, and the events occur in a chronological, but alternative world, order. BEWARE that there is incest in yosuga. Both series are done in a fashion that unveil the charms of the heroines, and leave you satisfied with the pairings.
If you've seen one, you should have give the other a look.
I feel like the relationships, situations and behaviour in Yosuga no Sora could actually happen. In Amagami SS, that realism feel has been removed. But don't get me wrong. I enjoyed Amagami SS much more than Yosuga no Sora.
You should know that Yosuga no Sora has sex scenes but I wouldn't call them graphic and they're very short. In my opinion, it usually happens as a confirmation of their relationship and feelings for each other, which is why I approve of them.
Best girl always wins in the omnibus format as they cycle through each girl's arc and ending.
Both series follow the same format (omnibus format, multiple arcs)
Also, both involve romance. It's just that Yosuga no Sora features an incestuous relationship.
If you liked the the structure of the arcs in Amagami then you would be able to appreciate it in Yosuga no Sora. However, in my opinion, it isn't done as well as Amagami.
Both use the omnibus format in adaptation. There are no sex scenes or incestuous themes in Amagami though.
Amagami ss and yosuga no sora more like.couse diffrent choose diffrent final
There are several story arcs where a different girl gets her own story with the male lead. It is in an omnibus format, so it's not actually a harem anime. The main difference is that Amagami is more dramatic, and Kaminomi is more comedic.
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs that can either or not be diverging from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
-Both can be considered BUT IS. NOT. a harem, since the anime concentrates on one heroine to the next.
-Both animes have the main character encountering with a lot of different girls
-Both are funny and have very good romance parts
-in The World Only God Knows, Keima, is known as the "The Capturing God" because he can "capture" any 2D girl in any game and receives an e-mail offering him to "capture girls" and accepts. It turn out there are loose souls who hide in the bodies of girls and his with the help of Elsie, a Hell demon, he must capture the hearts of the girls in order to force the loose souls out so they can be sent back to Hell.
-In Amagami SS it is about Junichi Tachibana who got his heart broken during Christmas last year. The anime displays different girls whom he falls for and each heroine in the story has a chance to tell their story.
-Both animes are really good and I really recommend them
it basically the same except minor details like someone helping the main protagonist and real world and supernatural settings
they are both great shows so watch em'
Both series is basically about the main character having intimate relations with different girls.
Since Amagami follows the structure of the galge it based on, you might find it enjoyable to watch The World God Only Knows, which makes fun of a galge cliche characters.
Both also focuses on particular romance story arcs, although The World God Only Knows is a linear story, while Amagami is playing out each possible story arc you can play thorough in the game.
-They explain each girl in different arc,so you wont get confused
-A boy lucky enough to be surrounded by lots of girls
Both series feature small arcs that deal with the male lead and the female lead for that specific arc and the romance that develops between the two. There's some good comedy, a little bit ecchi and both feature some rather well developed love stories that will leave the viewer happy after each arc. The difference is that Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai ties all the smaller arcs together into one larger overall plot and in Amagami SS the story, for the most part, resets after each arc. If you liked watching one of them you wont regret trying out the other.
the male lead dates many girls same with kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai
When you watch Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, you can't help but think of Amagami SS as well as vice versa. These two series has many similarities worth noting and should be no surprise once you start watching even from the pilot episode. Now, let's break down what sort of similarities they share:
*Both series have one main male protagonist involved in complicated relationships with various female characters in the series of contrasting personalities
*Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and of course romance
*Both series has a school setting where many of the events takes place
*Both series are divided into separate arcs focusing on the main male protagonist with other various characters
*Both series has love challenges so as such expect drama, misunderstandings, jealousy, and other factors that are common in a typical relationship between a guy and a girl.
Both the Protagonist can Conquer all the Heroine..
Both anime have the main character falling in love with many different girls. Both anime have the girl they fell in love with forget about everything (technically since the story changes). Amagami SS is designed like a dating sim, where the main character falls in love with character to character and goes on.
Both are romance animes that are featured in a 'omnibus' type format. Protagonist gets a chance to get all the girls. The setting is also in school and includes comedy although it is more apparent in Kami Nomi. There is also a imouto or little sister character in both!
Both have the same story around an MC who takes different paths about relationships that go along with the plot, the differences are that an MC will restart at the same point as a relationship ends and the other is always followed by the plot as the MC conquers a girl.
both protagonist had different love stories with different endings
both had strong emphasis in each endings which will surely give an after-taste of emotions
Kami Nomi (The World Only God Knows) takes a more light-hearted, even more parody-like, approach to showcasing romance in anime. Both feature one guy seeking to "get the ladies" with Amagami SS using the omnibus format and TWOGK using a "Men in Black"/erase the memory approach.
If you like a more comedic romance than Amagami SS, check out TWGOK!
While not both in an omnibus format, both share the atmosphere, the plots and the feeling.
While Kimikiss revolves around the main male characters and each of their respectable relationships, Amagami SS revolves around the single male lead and his interactions with each girl that has a crush or strong feelings for him. Amagami SS's story is made up of arks for each girl while KimiKiss is just one story that bounces between characters. Both have similar feels to them so if you liked one then you'll like the other.
Kimikiss is effectively the spiritual predeccesor to Amamgami as bith are based on dating sims made by the same company.
It took one episode for me to immediately think of Kimikiss when I watched Amagami. Similar art, similar plot, similar genre.
Very similar premise and feel, i.e. a romance with a bit of drama and a hint of comedy. Not surprising since they're both from the same creator, which is obvious from the similar character designs. Other similarities include annoying little sisters, swimsuit scenes and perky upperclassmen who might just be hiding or denying their own feelings.
The two animes are based from a dating simulator of the same publisher company. Conversation simulators with lots of girls to choose.
Both the games are made by the same group, Enterbrain, which is why the art style and situations are really similar.
Both have the same creators. if one chooses or considers the Haruka Arc for amagami, then both haruka and mao have the common theme for being a year older than their respective boyfriends junichi and kouichi, although regardless of which arc one chooses, mao and haruka share a common theme of being the only seniors of the 2 respective groups of main heroines, plus have two freshmen for each heroine. amagami's nakata and nanasaki, and more than 2 second years. kimikiss' hoshino yuumi, eriko futami shijou mitsuki and asuka sakino and amagami's sakurai, kaoru, and tsukasa. if one follows the kaoru or the morishima arc, both females may have similarities with mao mizusawa. morishima and mizusawa are both older than the male leads while with mao and kaoru, both girls have the similarities of being childhood friends and girlfriends of the male lead
Both are about love story's in different scenarios
Both animes have a romance plot within a school setting,
Both were based on a PS2 Galge or Dating Sim game,
Both have beautiful female heroines !
I DO NOT RECOMMEND watching Kimikiss Pure Rouge if you are hoping for some happy ending romance like Amagami SS. There's really no similarities between this two anime other than it's set in a school and the same creator, also the plots are totally different. Now the manga of Kimikiss does resembles Amagami SS with the different happy endings and one only male main character.
Sorry but this recommendation will only help those who have watched Amagami SS.
Both originate from dating by the same company. Kimikiss has a complicate yet interesting love-rectangle. It still have romance and comedy components. If you like Amagami SS, you should definitely check out Kimikiss.
If you watch both of these series, it will give you a very similar feeling. Although Amagami SS only has one main male protagonist, both series has that romance/school life setting. Keep an eye on both of these series if you're a fan of dating sims filled with drama, comedy, romance, and school life.
Both are Romance, both take place at school, Kimikiss is more dramatic
If you're looking for a romance anime with MC and different Heroine(per arc) then this will bfit your bill
Both Main Male Lead dates a different heroine every arc
Both anime contains the same school setting
Both anime contains drama
All in All this is a great anime to watch especially if you're into dating sims
Similar situations, has arc's just like Amagami SS and its seems to be based along the same style of story setup.
Not only does both series takes place in a school life setting, but the main protagonist gets himself involved with many girls who often gets caught up with his life.
In both series, there is comedy, romance, and some fan service.
Both series' main protagonist seems to be a normal guy although often says the wrong things. However, they seem to be kind and often looks out after others.
If you liked the omnibus format of Photo Kano (separate stories set in separate alternate paths), you'll find Amagami SS far better. It follows the same theme of romance, except it executes it far better.
What can i say, despite the fact that the setting and the character are slightly different. Amagami SS and Photokano are very similar to each other, where the MC in both series are your typical highschool boy but somehow they both end up with all the girls in the show. Not only the setting are pretty much exactly the same, the artstyle are also very similar since both show are made by TBS. Over all if you're enjoy a School/Romance/Harem series then you'll like one or the other.
Same setting: School, Romance (One is Ecchi)
Different arc = different girl
Both series are based on Dating Sims and are presented in an omnibus format (multiple scenarios involving different female leads and their individual stories)
Both have the same concept
There are many "routes" regarding the romance story of these two Anime; It's not harem; after every couple of episodes, the story "changes" as the Female character of the Couple changes.
It's a series about one guy in highschool with a number of girls who are potential girlfriends (all different type of stereotypical anime girls). Each girl has her own arc in which she turns out to be the one for this guy.
Both girls in these anime fall for one guy.
If you love school romance drama and this anime is for you.
and both are definitely worth watching!
it tell a story about Both girls in these anime fall for one guy.
If you love school romance drama and this anime is for you.
and both are definitely worth watching!
a reall reall great anime
-both anime are about dating different girls
Story plot using system ARC/route
Both are SoL-School-Romance Genre that got Omnibus-Style.
they are both about love and about couples.While Amagami is about a boy falling in love(in an omnibus style-he falls in love with various girls in different arcs) Hatsukoi Limited is about girls pursuing their love interests(couples are formed with a continuous storyline). They are both good but I like more Amagami
Both are a High School romance with a fairly realistic outlook on what makes girls attractive. Hatsukoi is an ongoing story with a big cast while Amagami focuses on a protagonist and rewinds time for each arc.
Good school-life romance story!!
Several girls, several arc ... first love ...
-Both shows present their romance in a unique manner.
Both Male Main Characters Had A Sad Pasts. Both Are Somehow Trying To Look Forward. And Different Girls Comes In Their Life
Both animes have a very melancholy and dramatic (at times) feel to them, while keep the anime upbeat. Both have a similar structure and the main characters are a bit similar. But Yuuichi shows more self-confidence while Junichi is more depressive a times.
The emotions it provokes in the episodes are vastly similar. having been looking for a harem series to do the same since I watched Kanon back in 2006. its similar also in how each girl gets her turn but in Kanon it is one continuous story.
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs that can either or not be diverging from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
-Both can be considered BUT IS. NOT. a harem, since the anime concentrates on one heroine to the next.
