Sure was a suprise . It had the same features as nagi no asukara. It's still quite mysterious. Its very similar to Nagi because of the characters and the place its located. Its just a small town near the sea with not so many people. Very good if you like a little comedy and romance in a slice of life kind of anime. Though it may be a little slow .
Nagi no Asukara & Glasslip both gives a feel of drama between friends who have been together for a long time. These story starts with the involvement of another person that created a domino effect aka one thing leading to another. They also share similar genres and art, plotted in a small town.
This is literally the exact same show.
-Group of friends get interrupted by the arrival of a new, seemingly emotionless male student in their group
-Main character is a silly genki girl
-Plot seems to be based around the love spider web, leaving the actual premise on the back burner.
-Sachi is Miuna (Not that that's a bad thing)
-Takes place in a seaside town
-Same animation/character designs
-Same overall feel
Needless to say, if you liked NagiAsu, and want a simila- another NagiAsu, watch Glasslip.
- Group of school-age teens/kids
- Web of relationships ("he likes her but she likes this other guy" kinda deal)
- Seaside setting
- Fantasy element (fish people in Nagi no Asukara, seeing into the future in Glasslip)
- Manaka is similar to Touko
- Relaxing soundtrack/opening theme
- Rushed ending in Glasslip (better, more developed ending in Nagi no Asukara)
- No undersea city/fish people
- In general, Nagi no Asukara has younger protagonists (middle school vs. high school)
- Glasslip is shorter than Nagi no Asukara (13 episodes compared to 26)
And P.A Works studio keeps them rolling! First things first, both series has high quality visuals and animation which is always a pleasure. Similar atmosphere where it can be light and warming but also can be mysterious and tense. The characters are typical P.A Works standard where both sets of characters personalities are nearly identical. Nonetheless a fairly good Slice of Life/Drama. Where there is drama, there is romance.
Both by P.A. Works
Similar type of genre where character development will play a huge role in acceptance of the new character, or drama inside the group
Both have characters whos main role is to effect the outcome of the party they are involved in.
Love and drama will be factors as a Male rivalry kicks in
Has a really similar feel to Nagi no Asukara
Close group of friends that get thrown into a bit of chaos following the introduction of a new student
Complicated love triangles/squares/pentagons
Tsumugu - Okikura (I swear Okikura is an older version of Tsumugu)
Hikari - Yukinari
Manaka - Touko
Both anime have similar moods and atmosphere and is also centered on romance with complex relationships.
NagiAsu and Glasslip are both located in a port town while the former having an added fantasy genre with people living under the sea.
Both have a new guy that comes into the friend group, fucks up all the relationships, and never really shows how they feel. Oh and they both make you feel like crap, never fulfilling all the time you wasted watching the show.
Beautiful animation with a beautiful soundtrack. Both anime deal with a group of friends slowly starting to drift apart as feelings are revealed and conflict ensues. The theme of change is also constantly prevalent in both.
- Same studio (P.A. Works)
- Same genres (Slice of life and romance)
- Love Polygon (he likes her, but she likes someone else)
- Seaside setting
- Group of friends that receive a new person in their group.
- Similar main character
Both shows consist of love webs with at least each of the main group being in love with another member. Both also involve an initial group being introduced to a subtle and quiet guy, who essentially impacts the group and their relations with each other
Same studio and similar animation, both plots deal with the protagonist and her dream of achieving a certain goal (In Tari Tari the main girl wants to sing while in Glasslip the main girl wants to be a glassmaker). Also there is a transfer male student who joins the group of childhood friends. Both deliver slice-of-life vibes with a touch of romance.
Life has to be lived to the fullest and in the midst of it, fond memories will be made.
'Glasslip' gives off a captivating vibe on the joys of life in a slow manner and throughout it all, reveals a captivating gift. Relationship adds to the sweet touch of an already close friendship shared between one and another.
'Tari Tari' excel in musicality superiority and present life as it should be. One must be focused in order to dream the DREAM and achieve the fundamental goals. Friendship must never be disregard regardless on how successful of a path is taken.
Essentially the same slice of life tropes and slow paced feel. They differ from each other by having the passions being glass making while the other is singing oriented. Glasslip is a love drama, whereas in Tari Tari, has no love interests as a plot focus. Also Glasslip does have a slight supernatural aspect to it in which the main characters have premonitions of the future.
•both are produced by the same animation director and company
•both are situated during their school time, almost close to graduation, centered around a group of friends
•both have the same aura/sense of feeling as your watch them both, besides the animation style being the exact same, you can just tell if you have watched one, that it will be similar to the other
•both groups of friends, struggle with relationships and feelings throughout their course of adolescents, setting off flags for each other or falling short
•they are both similar in the way, the anime focuses on a group of friends, throughout their days of highschool and day to day lives, focusing on the struggles and accomplishments they make, you will love tari tari, but you might like glasslip, but it will be a major downfall from watching tari tari. read more
These two gave the same feel to me and I just found out that they are from the same studio, so that might be it. The art is great in both and the comedy is similarly well-done, usually in the form of funny situations or small plot developments. Both anime are slice of life dealing with friendship with bit of romance stirred in.
The stories center on a group of close-knit friends who go through the good and bad times together. They deal with personal issues and conflicts between each other. Each character in the group will have episodes connected to his/her back story and how it affects the group as a whole.
Some of the characters give off the same feel! My favorite is Touko from Glasslip and Wakana from Tari Tari. They both seem to face the most arduous hardships of the group, and consequently get a lot of character development.
As I have only seen episode one of Glasslip, this should be taken with a grain of salt. read more
Kokoro Connect & Glasslip both involves the process of friendships being destroyed and repaired again. Having similar genres, these two may seem different but in the end, it's mainly about how the friends went through a lot and came back together.
A group of five friends, enjoying school life, then a mysterious new person comes along and supernatural events begin to occur. The groups friendship is strained whilst feelings for each other are unfurled.
Glasslip may not have much of the mystery genre like Kokoro Connect, but it does have a similar romance path towards the group. If you liked more of the romance genre of Kokoro, I'm sure you will like Glasslip. It shows a lot character development and is a must watch for all romance otaku's.
With a similar animation, both deals with issues of the friendships and romances of high school kids, and a main female character that likes chickens. Same director too, but with very different execution in terms of story--for better or for worse. That might also explain the explicit display of chickens, bordering on obsession.
A lot of similar characters and similar scenes. Glasslip reminded me a lot of Ai's arc from True Tears (with a love/friendship falling apart, but comes back together) and Hiromi's arc (The jealous of one person's relationship with their lover caused them to act bitterly to them). All in all, of you loved those two arcs in True Tears, you should ignore the hate that Glasslip gets and give it a try. If you enjoyed Glasslip, you'll definitely find True Tears a treat to watch! Also both shows have chickens in them that represent some sort of theme in the show, so if you loved them in one, you'll definitely love them in the other! read more
Both are directed by the same guy and deal with day to day relationships. The pacing of the shows are similar, and the main character is artistic in some way. Also the obsession with chickens is strong in both.
Ano Hana & Glasslip have very similar features including art, genres, and location. Although Ano Hana is the repairing of characters' friendships while Glasslip is involved in causing drama between friends, both stories gives a very similar feel involving friendship.
Both series are pretty relaxing, calm animes with a small romance, taking place in summertime. We have group of five friends having fun, but yet their problems with love and friendship. One person loves another, but this other persons is in love with someone else, this is clearly visible there. Those series are slice of life with a bit of supernatural themes.
It's pretty similar to each other (especially the art) but there are some differences:
-Protagonist is a girl, surrounded by a light blue-haired loli, three other girls, and one boy, while in Glasslip, the protagonist is also a girl but with three guys and two other girls.
-There is more romance in Glasslip than in Sora no Method.
-Glasslip is more supernatural, while Sora no Method is more sci-fi (maybe it's because of the saucer)
-Both are cringeworthy, love-to-hate dramatic anime, but Glasslip is even worse when it comes to the plot.
If you like slice of life genre, you must watch these two stories that have place in the summer and the plot is centered on something supernatural, like foresights or aliens. In the same time, a love story that ends somehow sadly is started.
The female main of these two stories share a similar personality as well as the art of the story. Both stories include romance and the evolution of the main character's friendship with the people they met. Hansaku Iroha & Glasslip may seem different at first but they both give a very similar feeling.
Also made by P.A studios. Hanasaku and glasslip share similar art, type of drama, and the slice of life vibe. You could see that both the main heroines are very loud, and very likeable because of their personalities on wanting to do great things. Just watched the first episode of glasslip and I'm starting to like it since it shares similarities with Hanasaku. Check out hanasaku before going into glasslip :P.
These are two anime that are both more about the environment and general feel of the anime than they are about the characters or story. Glasslip decides to focus more on the slice of life style and perfectly shows how an anime can exist with pure slice of life and no comedy or anything else. Akira is more action oriented and, like Glasslip, goes the full length to eliminate the need for other genres and only has action. If you're looking for an anime where you don't have to be bothered by events taking place but would rather just sit back and watch then both of these are good choices. read more
Both have an abnormal story setting. Also the characters have very similar properties. However there are some differences such as the genre types of supernatural for Glasslip and super power for Charlotte, or the character development such as for Charlotte they use singular character development and for Glasslip they use multi character development. But, overall there are many more similarities than differences. If you liked Charlotte you'll probably like Glasslip if your into the whole supernatural genre.
every characters have a same figure. like, Chitanda and Touko they are a plain and really curious.so, Houtarou and Kakeru they are a enjoy man and broad minded.
They Opening song same as performed by ChouChou.
In Fruits basket and Glasslip the Main girls (Touko&Torhu) always have a smile on their face and bring everyone together, they both have 2 bestfriends that are like sisters to them, also both Girls have 2 (guy) friends that hate each other and one of them likes her.(If you thought Yuki does read the Manga or the reviews.) In both animes supernatural things happen but focus more on comedy and then work on romance in the end.
Character relations and the atmosphere. Colour and artwork. Drama, slice of life.
Glasslip reminded me of Sakamichi. Sakamichi has an older setting though, and it revolves around Jazz and that era. Glasslip is modern and into glass making. But both are about friends, relationships and have some complexity of characters... If you caught one, catch the other.
Both are, essentially, meditations on a very specific moment (or, well, series of moments) rather than plot-driven stories. They’re more poetry, in that sense, than narrative, focusing on the emotional truths of a given scenario (how quickly does change happen? how does distance affect love?) more than the actions of that scenario—though they both relay those emotions almost exclusively by the actions of the characters rather than with lots of heavy monologuing.
Cringeworthy romance anime with tons of forced drama that are overwhelming the comedy and the actual plot.
The difference is that Glasslip has a high school girl protagonist while in Golden Time the protagonist is a university student.
Both have supernatural occurrences as well.
Both anime essentially manage to create a dark, neverending vortex in your soul. This abyss will suck out any emotion you have ever felt. It will leave you tired, empty, and with an overwhelming feeling of endless despair; like you will never see the light of day again. This is a recommendation for people who pursue true nihilism in animation, akin to the movie classic The 120 Days of Sodom.
