School Days gave me the self-proclamed "Great Depression of Martin." Both anime turned a happy pervert into a sad and depressed man who finally began to think clearly and work harder in school. Honestly i recommend both for anyone who is a pervert so they can reach enlightenment and become better men. I hate sex now, adultery and rape makes me sick as well.
Somehow, the two just seem so similiar. Both are based of the H-game of the same name. The leading guy is an absolute moron (more so in School Days with Makoto, but KimiNozo's Takayuki ain't far off). A shy girl likes the lead, so the outgoing friend of the shy girl tries to hook them up by befriending the main, only for the friend to fall in love with the lead too. There are harem-y aspects to either anime, with plenty of scenes either leading to sex, or from sex. However, School Days is far more extreme.
Tragic plot centering around a love triangle with a single male lead. I found the ending of both series to be unsettling. KGNE feels a little more adult in it's emotional portrayal of the characters and their situations compared to School Days. School Days is crap though whereas KGNE is awesome :P
Okay these animes has the same kind of feelings to it. The beginning is kind of the same as well. For example there is one "girl who is in love with the guy,"(Haruka,Kotonoha) and they're "friend want to get them together,"(Mitsuki,Sekai) but falls in love with the guy while trying to get the two together. something tragic happens in both of them and makes the guy fall in love with the friend.
So the story begins.
school days and kimi ga nozomu eien has a similar vibe to it......what i mean is that it has a emotional way of depressing you and it both sucks and is also very entertaining that you just can't stop watching it.......it's both a love-triangle anime also.....i'd strongly recommend watching a happy comedy-romance theme after watching this series which goes both for "school days" and kimi ga nozomu eien.
School Days relates to Kimi ga Nozomu Eien by having both portray a lot of appealing romance and drama. They both deal with a love triangle and Mitsuki's character relates to Sekai, and Haruka's character relates to Kotonoha. Both deal with tragic events and a struggle between the main heroines striving to persuade their lover's interest.
School Days and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien are very similar in many ways, especially in plot and characters. In both of these series you'll find the usual stereotypical characters that are pretty common in this type of anime: The painfully shy girl who obsessively loves the male lead, the tomboyish, outgoing girl who becomes more and more angsty and melodramatic as the series goes on, and the male lead with barely any personality whatsoever. Both anime also have a soap opera-like love triangle that is the cause of much angst in both shows, and due to contrived reasons (mainly due to the male lead's extreme indecisiveness), it continues. However, whereas Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ended in a bittersweet way, School Day's ending was brutal and violent. I'm positive that fans of one show will definitely like the other. read more
A relationship between the male protagonist begins when a female friend of his pairs him together with a friend of hers, only for the truth to come out: that she had feelings for him all along. Both Anime include scenes of intense drama, suspense, romance and love triangles.
There's this guy, he's kind of an idiot. The there's two girls. Girl 1 is shy and sweet while Girl 2 is tomboyish. Girl 2 sets up guy with Girl 1 despite harboring secret feelings for the guy. Then drama happens, with a story filled with twists and turns, with most of the problems happening because the guy is really stupid.
Both are romantic dramas with similar indecisive male leads caught in a love triangle. One of the girls in the love triangle originally sets him up with the other girl even though she has feelings for him. From there, the guy makes stupid mistakes and lies his way to the end while bringing the people around him down as well.
Both are way more realistic than your typical moe romance series (i.e Clannad, Kanon, Air, etc). Shitty stuff happens in both, both male protagonists are your everyday guys (not selfless idiots), and neither of them are innocent. However School Days's downsides (bad animation, simple storyline, not the kind of main character people are used to, lolfinale) are far worse than KimiNozo's.
the other story of ef and kimi ga are simiLar.. they are caught in a love triangle..the man doesnt know what to do until one of his friends,girl or a boy (dont remember) gave him an advice..(dont know if thats an advice) or make him realize to his decision.. lol
Tale of memories has a main character, which can't chose between 2 girls, which are in love with him, same goes for Kimi ga Nozomu Eien (a.k.a. Rumbling Hearts), though Tale of memories has 2 main boy characters, but they are more or less similiar.
Same bittersweet feeling through the series, great caracter development, and it feels like real life, since the caracters have flaws and have to work around theirs issues. Both animes have a very good drama/romance plot, and they were both based on hentai games.
They both just have a similar feel except that I felt Ef did a much better job in the development of the relationships between the characters. Either way, if you like one than you'll probably to like the other.
The story is about the lost of memories. Both feature two sisters as main character with a very similar personality. One of the sister is athletic and talkative and the other is rather quiet and suffer from an illness. The cause of that illness is similar too. The female main characters also has a rival in their love life. Both story is about love with a lot of sad moment that may make the viewer cry.
They both have very sad plots and story to them, the main characters all have love issues and are tied to each other one way or another, it all results in similar ways but both endings become very different in the end
Both start off as two people who go out but are only led to tragedy. It starts off all happy and romantic but then it all goes down hill. There are also several other similarities but I don't want to spoil it. Both have a really sad ending. Well....for Saikano it all depends on how you look at it to call it a "sad" or "happy" ending.
Both were initially set as a high school drama. Both have interesting love triangles (although Kimi ga Nozomu Eien doesn't have that whole end of the world thing). Striking similarities between the two, both are excellent dramas and both are well worth watching!
Both Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Saikano involve the energetic best friend setting up the shy girl with the main character, although she secretly likes the main character herself. Each focus mainly on romance, although Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is more realistic than Saikano. Both shows are extremely dramatic, as well as extremely depressing.
Both are unrelenting romances that can null a person's emotions. Yet the power of the series is enough to make even the most hardened people react in some way.
They also have bitter endings that probably won't ryhme with a person's soul the way they want them too either...
Saikano has sci-fi elements, is better animated, and is a bit more depressing.
Kimi is more natural in layout, and ends bittersweetly.
Both anime start happily with a boy and a girl in love, but they quickly fall apart after a tragic event happens to the girl. They each have an incredibly depressing feel. While KimiNozo has more of a slice of life feel and Saikano has more of a fantasy feel, they are both mainly romantic stories about how a main couple deals with a tragic and life-changing event. I don't think either of them are that good, but you'd probably like one if you liked the other.
Sex, betrayals and a lot of love. Mature romances that have started in a scholar environment and finished with a lot of drama. Saikano tends to be sci-fi and takes place in a world war, KimiNozo occurs between adolescence/adulthood transition of our protagonists.
Saikano and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien try to combine romance and tragedy, but their attempts fail miserably due to a weak cast of characters, bad pacing, and a poorly-executed plot. They thrive on needless melodrama that cheapens the main story to the point that the audience is either yawning or laughing by the time the last episode rolls by. Both series have main characters that act in hysterical and overly exaggerated ways that make them almost painful to watch. So if you managed to like one, and for some mind-boggling reason you want to watch something similar, then you won't be disappointed.
Like Suzuka, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien really shows the high school romance element, even though Kiminozo mostly takes place after the high school days. Also, they are both based off hit bishojo dating simulators of the same titles.
This anime is recommended because the story is well made, romance and drama sets you to thinking about real life. Like Clannad-Kimi ga nozomu- kanon2006 this story will touch your emotions.
This anime has 26 nice episodes, the after story off this anime isn't shown but its readable in the manga. Still i recommend the anime and the manga to the fans of Clannad after story!
Yamato Akitsuki travels to Tokyo alone to study in one of the high schools located within the area. He lives in with his aunt who operates a public bath solely for the ladies in the local district and begins his normal high-school life. One day, he chances upon a girl in school and is immediately mesmerised by her beauty. He is shocked when he realise later that the girl, Suzuka, is actually living next door to him. From then on, Yamato's ordinary life begins to change little by little.
White Album 2 and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien portray love-triangle relationship between the male lead and the 2 female leads, in a mature and realistic manner. The episodes are packed with drama, that increases in intensity as the plot progresses.
As a White Album 2 fan, I can tell you: you won't find another relationship drama this intense (without resorting to School Days)
If you're looking for more of what you got in WA2's latter half, look no further
Two of the more serious love triangle dramas out there...While Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien is pretty much a drama by the end of episode 1, White Album 2 takes messing with the viewer´s emotions a step further by starting out as a blithely show before everything falls apart around the midway point.
Also romance,drama,and also you can feel the life from this anime!Also,like Clannad,Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is full of feelings to friends,who later become lovers.
In Kimi ga Nozomu Eien Haruka is similar to Nagisa.
Both series are about mediocre high school students that are involved in a romantic story that becomes tragedy later on due to certain circumstances. The main characters have a lot in common, also there are several hilarious scenes as well as confessions that make you cry.
Clannad: After Story has more drama but it is well in the same genre.
I hope you will enjoy both series as I have
Both anime have very dramatic romance stories and overuse pathos/melodramatic mecanics in order to stir viewers. Unless, Clannad is most bittersweet and have also good feeling/comedy moments while Kimi ga Nozomu Eien has a"big drama density" which can be very opressing.
In essence, there is the romance love triangle present in both series.
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien has a more feeling of maturity dealing with loss but both series conveys a message that life itself can be difficult. The main characters all have a past that are reflected throughout both series. There is tense drama present as the main male protagonist often revisits those memories.
Comedy is also present in a humorous way while both series also takes place in a school life setting.
Both are similar because they have a two-girls-one-guy love triangle and similar feeling, though Kimi ga Nozomu tends to be more dramatic than Golden Time. The two are pretty much alike with their premises, and certain phenomena (can't spoil haha) happens that makes them interesting and creates trouble for the characters.
Basically, I am making my first ever recommendation because either title of the twain you watch and want more, try another one. Most likely these are the most similar shows with those kinda unique features:
student characters with a love triangle where the love itself is shown in a good and detailed way (rare in anime)
and of course amnesia is also the similarity moving the plot
more similarities which I cannot correctly describe (being not a good writer) but you will definitely feel it.
Would be really cool if somebody else sharing the same opinion could also share it. Currently only 1 more vote (after mine) and this recommendation will be in the list of the first 7 titles shown in recommendations without clicking the arrows. It definitely deserves it! I have even submitted my first recommendations ever, lol.
Both are drama/slice of life anime that revolve around a group of friends growing up, an accident involving one of these friends and how this accident affects the relationship between all of them.
Love triangles appear in both shows and result in the friends driffting apart, though while Kimi ga Nozomu Eien focuses on the love like relationships and "drifting apart", AnoHana is more about those friends finding back to each other.
AnoHana has slight "supernatural" parts while KNE tries to be a more realistic show.
Both shows have a very sad and kind of melancholic last episode and the girl involved in the accident is a little similar in both shows as well. read more
In Kima ga Nozomu Eien, the male protagonist has to give up something very important to him in order to move on with his life. The situation actually happened in the past, but after a series of events occured he has to deal with the situation in the present. In Ano Hana, a whole group of people have to give up something in order to move on with their lives, and just like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, the event happened in the past, and an event occurred that resurrected the conflict. Ano Hana is a depressing and sad anime, but it starts out pretty normal, and the depresison factor escalates near the end, whereas in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien it is pretty depressing throughout the whole series with a little comic relief near the end. So, all in all, if you liked Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, then I highly recommend watching Ano Hana, and vice-versa. read more
Both series are about a group of friends whose lives are changing because of a tragic accident with one of the friends. The others try to move on, but suddenly are being pulled back to the past they all want to forget.
Both series deals with friendship, loyalty, love and loss. In my biased opinion, the plot and character development are more drawn out than Kimi ga Nozomu Eien. In addition, Anohana offers softer and supernatural elements in the series. Kimi ga Nozumu Eien deals more with adult-like situations and consequences, so I would advise those whom are 16...maybe 18 and older to watch it. I have watched Kimi ga Nozumu Eien twice. I did not understand the series too well nine years ago as opposed to now. Kimi ga Nozumu Eien will not disappoint drama/romance fans though, so try it out!
The storylines aren't that similar but both animes contain the themes of love, loss and moving on...Both are very beautiful and tearjerking. If you liked Rumbling Hearts, you'll probably like 5 Centimetres per Second :)
both series is a real tear jerker and show us that reality is not always going according our expectation and told us that love is not something that should getting forced. both series was a heartbreaking romance anime where both hero and heroine is suffering and try to face the reality.
Both series are tales of romance that takes tragedy and emotional turns and thus aimed more at mature audiences.
Both anime(s) also deals with the hospital that reflects on the tragedy some characters has been through. Thus, there are some psychological theme in both series.
But then, there are also comedy, drama, and of course romance. In the end, both these series shows realism and if you're looking for a serious anime, then both anime(s) might be right for you.
Both have characters with tragic circumstances with a dramatic/realistic plot (kimi ga is more intense ) and both series look at love from a destructive side and how one can hurt the other when falling in love-kimi ga is focused on one guy and his relationship with two tragic females and true tears is focused on three males and three females with lots of jealousy ,desperate love ,so if u liked true tears u might like kimi ga nozomu eien as well ......
Both tell amazingly realistic stories of romance by using raw emotions as tools rather than developments. (i.e. melodrama)
Therefore, the characters share one glaring and, potentially, enjoyment-killing flaw: They are very off-putting due to incompetant decision making. Melodrama does not allow direct growth in it's people as a trade-off.
Enjoyable because of curiosity, but, all-in-all, they're hit-or-miss exp.
Kimi ga Nozumu Eien (a.k.a. Rumbling Hearts) utilizes a true tradegy to excuse it's effective melodrama. The characters attempt to grow, but dwindle due to, again, all too real circumstances.
True Tears uses childhood friends, familial bonds, and the understanding of sadness/happiness. There's quite a lot of love triangles here, but are rarely boggled down. Characters' misunderstandings combined with excessive (but understandable) responses ensue the melodrama. Harder to take in, as the circumstances are less likely to occur. read more
When watching Kimi ga Nozomu Eien I firstly recalled True Tears. Both tell true-to-life stories about some school friends and show that love may be extremely painful alongside with being pleasant. If to underline, they show how much love may hurt for the very first time. Some intrigues, skeletons and evil plot twists are included, too.
Romance in a love triangle, minus the moe comedy, and plus loads of character development, and realistic depiction of how one decision could affect the other party in love.
Not for people only looking for a light-hearted comedy series. These are packed with drama and feels.
Both are EXTREMELY depressing but potent romance series. They each have very human characters and stories, and have factors too.
Kimi's circumstance would probably happen more frequently in reality. It also is much more bitter than sweet.
Koi Kaze's theme is much more serious and is handled that much more seriously. However, it is a bit easier to watch, and ends much, much better.
Both series contain the theme of love that is presented in a more mature and realistic way than typical romance series. In other words, both series are serious love stories that are not the typical puppy crush or love at first sight types.
Both series has many emotional moments but also some comedy moments as the main protagonist deals with the feelings he has for the main female character.
Both series are sober and built on drama as well as guilt that presents romance in a mature way.
- both are sad dramas ( kimi ga nozumu eien felt a tad bit sadder)
-have a school theme
- have a romance genre
-love triangles involved
-main character has gone through some sort of traumatizing event in the past
- includes a timeskip at the very beggining of the series, characters are shown to have a drastic change in character( nanaka in myselfyourself and akane in kimi ga nozumu eien)
While Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is more about a love triangle and Myself;Yourself has a harem façade, both deal brilliantly with how everyday life can become harsh when 'love' is involved.
They also share a unique depressive mood that makes them so delectable to watch.
Although plot is quite different, some main things exist in both: 2 girls and 1 boy, facing lots of problems, until the end. And of course the true love wins.
One other very similar object is travels back into past. Characters always remembers their past and in that way, just like a puzzle, the main plot builds.
Both are mature romances that show complications that love doesn't always equal happiness. Lots of drama in both including a love triangle, although in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, the love triangle is always being put into a strain. Another common aspect that both anime have a tragic element to them showing a dark side. If you want a mature drama with romance that is a bit dark—both shows are great for this. The pacing of the show is similar.
They both focus on drama, romance, Slice of life type of genre. You're able to put your subjectivity into interpretation of the events, making yourself feel immersed into the anime. How far are you willing to chase the one you love - type of anime. If you like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, you will definately love Kimi No Iru Machi.
Both series are considered romance anime that depicts the main male protagonist getting involved with various girls. However, there are problems that occurs throughout both series that hinders relationships such as accidents and misunderstandings.
The main male protagonist from both series are a bit indecisive at various points but does make certain decisions on his own for the benefit of others. There's also some comedy and fan service. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien adapts more of a serious mood though especially in the beginning. However, both series has a similar atmosphere.
Both deal with a guy in dilema about past and present love. Although kimi ga nozomu eien have a few eechi scenes but kimi no inai machi had me cry at the other tragic love ending. Ultimately the girl who was true d8dnt get the guy. Same on both sides.
Both have a main character who's actions have great impact on the storyline(which you would expect from a main character lol) also they have similar characteristics. The characters are Nagisa in Clannad and Haruka in KNE(Kimi ga Nozomu Eien). Though at first they seem to be one of the weaker characters (in terms of both physical and mental strength), both become stronger as the story develops.
Both of the charcters have a soulmate which they love and believe in Tomoya in Nagisa's case and Takayuki in Haruka's case. These soulmates do not show any affection for their so called counter parts in the series, however as the story develops affection grows beyond measurement.
Both of the series seem to be dull, however as the storyline progresses both are really interessting and worth watching till the very end.
Last and final simularity between the two is that they are both based on the love between the main character and her soulmate (though some might disagree in the case of KNE, I will not address any of this because it would lead to spoilers).
To summarize all of this and give you a tip as well. In my opinion Clannad and KNE are so much alike that if you like Clannad you will surely like KNE (perhaps even more then Clannad, like I do). However I would like to stress anyone to not watch the series at the same time for you might mix the storylines a bit (as I did on more then one occasion).
I hope that you enjoy both of the series if you plan on watching them. read more
Both Kimi and clannad are drama romance anime
although I'd say Kimi is far a far better drama and romance
Kimi's story is more serious and the series is shorter so it doesn't have as much dullness
Those that enjoyed Clannad should easily enjoy this or Angel Beats
then, the plot about a girl waiting until the guy gets his wits together and finally decides to save her/not save her. There is no fantasy in Kimi ga Nozomu and the urge to slap the main protagonist is 100x higher. But if you like drama-slice-of-life stories that make you cry then you will like to watch both. Watch Air even if you don't particulary like that genre cause it's worth it. (ok, so i am biased...^^)
These shows really dig into your emotions. They have so much sadness, but end up somewhat joyful if you really look at it. They each have tragic parts that end up fatal. Air is a story, though about a girl wanting to fly, and when she dreams, she does.
Kiminozo and Kuzu no Honkai both explore love triangles (or love webs), or perhaps more accurately, how deeply flawed individuals go about establishing romantic relationships with others. There are certain twists in the relationships that make them more complicated than the usual. Both shows explore this in a very artistic way, and really brings out the inner thoughts and feelings of the important characters. These shows have intense emotional outbursts, and the mood is usually heavy and melancholy.
Young main characters with love troubles, cheating relationships and argument twist everywhere.
Such a different from thoose typical love-come and shoujo romances. Some kind of real and serious stories.
The heroine is mentally absent, puzzled, confused, obedient, submissive, has a lack of own opinions, no temper and is boring. There's nor charm nor allurement. Both girl protagonists resemble each other. There's a supporting character (in Kimi: the sister | in Amnesia: the ghost) who is kind of annoying. The difference is Amnesia includes more fantasy moments while Kimi ga Nozimu Eien has none of these.
I regret I've watched Kimi but Amnesia seems to get interesting. Edit: nah, now I regret watching both. But the Amnesia ghost gets somehow cute and the end is appealing in contrast to the rest.
They are both love story. Well...both of these movies has a serious relationships.In kimi ga nozomu eien, and bokura ga ita, there lived one boy in these movies and has 2 girlfriends but one girlfriend had an accident.
If you like drama, romance, and tragedy, then both these series may spark some interest. H2O: Footprints in the Sand leaves the MC a deep emotional scar due to an event similar to the protagonist in Kimi ga Nozomu Eien/Rumbling Hearts. Both try to move on while staying facing their own personal demons.
Both series contain romance as one of the main themes but in a more mature way the typical "love-dovey" scenes.
In both series, the drama is quite realistic and serious that also has psychological and emotional tones occasionally. Both series also contain tragedy themes involving love triangles, misunderstandings, and hardships.
But there is also some comedy and the characters are appealing as episodes progresses to see the way they change as they adjust themselves and realism of life.
Relationship between close friends. As one falls in love with the other, the other shows signs of affection too. New beginnings and changes in their lives, but they’re still haunted by the event in the past which is holding them back. Similar romance and drama too.
Although the stories and even tones of the two animes are completely different, they have a coule things in common; for one, they are both extremely dramatic and sad. Both also rely quite a lot on secrets and a moderate amount on betrayal and regret. The style of art in both is also not extremely cute, but definitely pretty. If you liked one, you will probably like the other.
Same concept here really. Same sad broken main character after the loss of a loved one. The 2nd girl tries to bring him to her side but ends up getting hurt in the process, although in RK "reflections", the main heroine completely fails, where the main girl in "rumbling hearts" gets a happy ending in the end.
You should watch this if you enjoy the pain and realism that people go through in love triangles, and how people deal with the loss of a loved one.
These two anime are similar in an abstract way.
It does not have the same aspects as Paradise, but it definitely has the drama
It is another anime that takes a quite real approach to romance
Kimi ga is probably more prone to tugging on people's emotions
Also both Kimi and Paradise both lean on their story, instead of adding comic relief
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is more for guys, while Lovely Complex is more for girls. That doesn't mean its gender-exclusive; it just means the series was originally intended for that audience.
Both series are realistic in terms of romance and life. Unlike regular romance series where they always happy-happy-happy, both series show you that life isn't always fair. Be ready to cry and smile in either of these series.
Drama. That word defines what these two series have in similarity for starters. But of course, there's more than that between Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and White Album.
Both series has plenty of drama that is presented in a much more realistic and mature way than the typical school life romance series. Thus, expect love triangles, misunderstandings, trials, and even tragedies.
Both series also seem contain a psychological like mood also in subsequent episodes.
Both series' main protagonist has similar personalities and has a hard time in his life along with some of the other characters. Speaking of, the other characters are also interested in the main protagonist for different reasons that brings for its realistic drama.
Memories Off and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien are really alike animes. Story is similiar ,not quite the same.. And the main difference is that Memories Off revolves around High School teenagers but Kimi ga revolves around adults.
There's the culmination of a relationship, followed by the same tear-jerking event; similar setup, but different outcomes. With their similar setups and character driven story lines, it easy to see how this recommendation lent itself to be made.
In terms of the protagonist's sexual orientation, these two series are anything but similar. But both of these shows have the same scenario. The protagonist is faced with two lover's of almost equal importance and in the end, he/she has to sacrifice one for the another. Just when you are feeling sorry for the one left out after the end of the series, you get hit with an OVA with "an alternative ending". In other words, the one who was left out in the original series gets to go out with the protagonist.
So yeah, these two are pretty similar. But I'll suggest you watch Kimi ga Nozomu Eien anyway. It has a grave mood, tons of weight in every action carried out by the characters and a long lasting impression on the viewer. But what's most important- unlike most anime(popular and unpopular), this one has a decisive and satisfactory ending(which is an understatement, the ending is GREAT). read more
Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien and Memories Off 2nd are very similar with each other. They guy falling in love with his girlfriend's best friend, and choosing between the two of them. However, KGNE has a more complicated story than Memories Off 2nd. But they're both great so you should really give them a try.
The main characters in the series deal with friendship problems where one friend ends up in the hospital, and they find themselves dealing with the repercussions. The repercussions take different routes from each other, and explore differing character faucets. Specifically, the main characters find their feelings of guilt manipulated by another who is jealous for differing reasons. Said manipulations aren’t without repercussions.
If you liked NANA for the realism, romance and soap opera drama, you will probably like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien too. The characters are also of similar ages. Although the stories are both extremely different.
Not that the genre or target audience is similar.
Actually, although Les Miserables was made for kid's theater, I think it's indeed too heavy for the kids to understand the stress & strains.
Anyway, if you are looking for melodramas which can drive your mood down low, to an extent which make you having difficulty to continue, Les Miserables first season & Kiminozo are good choices.
Kimi ga nozomu Eien - romance & trauma victim & "Bizarre Love Triangle"
Shoujo Cosette - the most unlucky girl (?), poverty & unfair society in the past
