A compelling high-school romance-drama with a gruesome twist, School Days takes everything people love about the high-school romance genre and combines it with the suspense and bizarre twist of Higurashi.
Did episode 6 of School Days creep you out? Did you love all the revenge in episode 12? Did you love the loli killers? Higurashi's got this, times 10. Less about love, but an amazing series with a diversity of scenes.
School Days portrays the innocence of High School Drama and intensifies it with a little more disturbing conclusion than others. However, if you're looking for extreme "disturbances" with" innocent and cute" Anime girls then look no further than Higurashi's twisted masterpiece.
if you watch higurashi no naku koro ni then watch school days,after watching 12 episodes of school days it's reminds me of higurashi i have no idea why but it's just pop up of my head after watching the ending.*(it's an anime that you have to watch till the end)
I actually watched School Days because I read so many times that people who liked Higurashi would probably like it. And I did, it was great. In the start, School Days seem pretty normal, but towards the end, it's not that normal. I'm not a fan of this type of anime, but I liked it a lot! So, if you like School Days, watch Higurashi, and if you like Higurashi, watch School Days.
Both are based on a Japanese horror VG, and both have a bunch of moe characters placed in a creepy situation.
If you enjoyed the creepy, disturbing and totally unexpected [if you ask me Oo"] ending og School Days you will certainly enjoy watching Higurashi. :)
Higurashi has taken out the element of sex and added in more murderous intent. Same feeling that makes you think that b****es be crazy. School days has more stupid characters while you don't mind the consequences that they recieve but in Higurashi you know that bad things are gonna happen and you try to not get attached to the characters but your heart still surges when something happen
Both Higurashi and School Days are thrillers that take you on a phycological rollercoaster ride!
School Days starts of with a boy named Makoto Ito who sees this incredibly gorgeous girl at the train station named Kotonoha Katsura. He takes her picture and dreams about asking her out but doesn't know how to!
Ito's friend, Sekai Saionji, decides to help him with his girl problems.
Over the course of the episodes Sekai starts noticing she has feelings for Ito and secretly wants to be with him. She tries her best to hide it from him and keep the relationship between them lighthearted and fun.
The story is built for you to start hating Ito as he becomes incredibly selfish wishing to have this beautiful, kind and generous girlfriend when she's interesting. And then using his friend Sekai as a seemingly 'back-up' when his girlfriend, Kotonoha gets "boring".
But when Ito's lies and promises start tangling up, and one girl is pushed past her limits, some things can go TERRIBLY wrong!!
(A/N: This is more towards romance and leans towards Shions story during Meakashi-hen if your comparing to Higurashi!! ) read more
The two are completely insane, and are pretty dark regardless of their beginning. Both focus in the psychology of the characters pretty much all the time, making the variable of hate/love in those characters much more difficult.
They have differences though; Higurashi is more horror, School Days is more drama... but at the end, I can't spoil but School Days will remind Higurashi for those who have seen it first.
I reccomend both to fans of Psychological anime or Horror anime, because they are masterpiece on those genres.
If you watched Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, I warn you, do not watch School Days, cause you will suffer even more then HnNKn characters. If you actually enjoyed school days then you will like the twists of Higurashi, even though it's a bit more realistic in the end.
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.
What do you get when two girls fall in live with the same guy? School Days is fairly similar to White Album 2 with the only major difference being that the main characters of WA2 prefers running away from their problems. But WA2 does not take it too extreme like what School Days did.
Both of these series are VN adaptations.
They both feel like utsuge, where the main aspect is to get (somewhat) attached to the characters before you're enraged and trolled to shit with upsetting love triangle drama.
White Album 2 is better written and has comparatively more likable characters, though.
First thing that came to my mind when I started watching White Album 2 was School Days. Both school-setting romance shows portray mature themes despite having adolescents as main characters. Love triangles, serious drama and misunderstandings are fundamental part of these shows. Also, both series manage to create dark and serious atmospheres very well every once in a while. Unexpected plot twists and difficult/unstable characters, though School Days can be way more gruesome. Very similar overall feeling.
A love triangle forms early on for both and the main character is often in a limbo state of choosing which girl to go along with. Drama is heavily present in each anime and both anime push the boundaries of an anime romance most other's are too afraid to even try.
Do you want a far more decent love triangle ? So watch White Album. This is an enhanced version of School Days with a true plot, characters got a true soul (unlike Makoshit and his yandere-bitch), with true dramatical interest. And if you wanted to watch school days, please don't watch the 11 first episodes because this is a lost of time, however the last one is most funny OVA I'd never seen.
White Album 2 is basically school days had it been made with a decent budget/ the main character not be a complete cheating asshole/ and the two heroines not be completely bat shit insane. They both deal with love triangles WA2 being more realistic
Two girls love one guy. The MC doesn't really do stuff to his liking and does the opposite of it all. The girls aren't as nice as they look and they're heavy drama series with a dark tone. Both main characters can easily be portrayed as wimps because they run away from their problems and try to avoid it. This keeps giving everyone a larger burden and creates situations of decision making.
An encounter, a love, a child, a girl, two animes. It seems predestined, right at a turning point in their lives. But it seems that not only is she, but another girl, who could steal the happiness of the other, and both are friends. And the child will have to decide with the heart and not with the attraction. Two melodramatic series, one more than the other, with completely opposite endings, but without leaving that air of "How can could he finish in a good way?". You just have to draw your own conclusions.
A love triangle between the mc and two girls (who are best friends) everyone love everyone etc etc...
While watching WA 2 I had the feeling "It makes me think a lot of School Days" main difference is that WA's mc is a good guy and SD a asshole, while SC takes it to the extreme WA has a heart wrecking ending, but not a one that leave you disgusted
If the creators of School Days had gotten their stuff together and made a better, more well-executed version of the show, their final product would have most resembled White Album 2. Both shows focus on a male character who is torn between multiple girls. Both shows also feature realistic teen behavior in the realm of sexual activity. Furthermore, both shows have a plot development wherein the male character realizes that he likes another girl over the girl he initially chose. However, whereas School Days ends up taking a more harem-like approach near the end, White Album 2 stays with its initial love triangle the whole way through.
The other differences are enormously important, however. The characters in White Album 2 are more reasonable, better developed, more compelling, and more believable than the base, illogical, and morally corrupt ones in School Days. In both shows, the male character's romantic turmoil between girls leads to drama, but it is handled more maturely and executed more realistically in White Album 2.
If you liked what School Days was trying to do but were disappointed that it was a bit of a failure through and through (or you liked it and want to see something even better), I cannot recommend White Album 2 enough (not that I wouldn't just recommend it in general).
Because of its superb execution, White Album 2 successfully tells a compelling story about the nuanced dynamics of the interactions of male and female teen friends and the joy and anguish that can ensue from their relationships. School Days on the other hand, in my opinion, was a failed attempt at depicting the anguish side of this, and it could have been better if certain things had been different.  read more
Both series feature teenagers overwhelmed with emotions and learning how to grasp relationships while making mistakes along the way. Relationships in both shows grow more complicated with more people entering the focus of the web of relationships.
These to anime both gave me teary moments of understanding love. It showed me the struggle of what love is like to a certain length of reaching it. It shows ya not to betray ones love and always keep one in your heart.
Its very soothing, romantic, and sad at times. It gets your hope up and you want to keep watching it till the end.
I recommend these because its a heart warming and tear jerking series, but also heart breaking. If you enjoy drama and romance theses are the two for you.
If you enjoyed this anime because of its gritty examination of the pain that can be caused by unrequited love, and the hardships endured as a result of leaping into sexual indiscretions, and you enjoy watching flawed characters struggle to preserve their happiness in the face of jealousy, then you may enjoy both School Days and Kuzu no Honkai for the same reasons.
However, where Kuzu no Honkai starts out miserable and maintains that level of melodrama throughout, School Days manages to be the more grim of the two, having a distinctive downward curve as it descends gradually from a plucky harem anime into the tragic depths of the teenage heart. read more
It explores similar themes of desires, and the slow descent of an average and reasonable character into the depths of sexual activity. It's nowhere near as character driven, but it explores the same themes, and has a similar 'feel' to it. Much more PG than Honkai, though
Both explore the negative natures of hollow relationships, and have strong character development (albeit the characters in school days actually have NEGATIVE character development and get WORSE). But both are incredibly thought-provoking and really make you consider what kind of morals and honesty you should take into a relationship and the effects of playing with people's feelings. They're wonderfully horrible, and great watches for all the wrong reasons, so that you can contemplate the right choices.
Kuzu no Honkai is like a quality school days that still have a fuckup people doing fuckup thing
but a bit more realistic and with less hateable character
really beautiful looking with cool unique style combined with really good soundtrack
Both anime have similarities in relationships between characters. In both anime someone in some way helps to other person to get his/her loved one. And in both anime characters kinda have some mental problems.
Personally I wasn’t a fan of either of these, but if you enjoyed School Days, you may want to check out Kuzu no Honkai. A romance which uses sex as a major theme and has characters that do some morally questionable things.
Both shows have similar character designs, even though the personalities in the show are very different. Also, both have themes that follow mental illness and trauma. However, School Days focuses more on romance while Myself ; Yourself seems to focus more on character relationships. There were just many times during Myself ; Yourself that reminded me of School Days, even though their plots are different.
They both start out seeming like your typical anime full of drama and revolving around school but you realize that it isnt your typical anime very early into the series. Both animes have a very dark background and there are always traces of something more sinister lurking around. Both uses forshadowing very well. I personally enjoyed Myself;Yourself more then School Days though.
Both series start off as seemingly innocuous, unassuming, slightly awkward high school harem-ish romantic comedy series but spend the last few episdoes kicking the drama and insanity up to eleven and careening out of control. One gets a hold of itself and pulls together a happy ending; the other... not so much.
Similar characters, similar storyline, similar style. Both animes have similar aspects in one way or another. They both have a sort of "love-trangle" type story, and have a slightly horror-ish vibe to them with eerie scenes. Both seemignly sweet animes, then slowly getting darker and more emotional as the story goes on. You can really feel the characters emotions throughout the animes, and it's very easy to imagine yourself in their shoes. They can make you feel happy, sad, angry, and just about any other mixture of emotions, so you'll never really know what to expect with how you'll feel after you've watched them.
Both turn kind of dark about halfway in.
The difference is, Myself;Yourself pretty much has a happy ending, while School Days...well...doesn't.
Many moments in Myself;Yourself just reminded me of School Days.
Both start out very light hearted school based romances with lots of drama which quickly turn much more dark,and both have simlar art and have a clueless male lead(In Myself;Yourself he just isn't told what is happening but in School days he just is oblivious to everything).Differences are Myself;Yourself isn't a harem and actually has likeable charcthers.
Similar art, character designs, and narrative flow: a seemingly innocent and at first glance generic school slice-of-life makes a name for itself by quickly becoming unpredictable and making use of shocking and unsettling but unique drama.
If you hated School Days, don't disregard Myself ; Yourself just yet. To become as f'd up as possible, School Days attempts to evoke feelings of loathing from the viewer; conversely, Myself ; Yourself attempts to evoke feelings of solicitude. This difference eliminates from Myself ; Yourself the primary element that creates such extreme contempt for School Days because the audience is actually intended to like the characters of Myself ; Yourself. read more
Literally the same school, romance, drama + fxcked up twist(s) scenario.
This is bout as close as youre gonna get to School Days in an anime...
Though still not as good =
School Days is really one of a kind and will leave a void in your life if youre like me and you really enjoyed it.
Another harem style anime, with a little drama, but much more lighthearted overall. It also incorporates some interesting twists and turns in the plot, but it does not generally leave you sick to your stomach like school days does. I enjoyed both school days and shuffle, and they are both excellent anime.
A bunch of girls like one guy. However, the main character in shuffle! has a different personality than the main male lead in School Days (aka the shuffle! guy is actually sincere). Also, they both get pretty serious towards the end. School Days more so.
Both School Days and Shuffle! are two of the better harems out there, in my opinion. Both series start off light, cutesy, and happy, but have darker elements that surface later on in the series. Both School Days and Shuffle! also feature similar character types: yanderes (Kotonoha and Kaede), the loud and energetic type (Sekai and Asa), the quiet girl (Setsuna and Primula), et cetera. I think both are very enjoyable series and fun to watch.
Another harem style anime where a friendly argument over the love of one man turns slowly in a physically harmful war. In both, a girl turns mentally unstable. Both start off slow but towards the end leaves you in shock.
Both have a main character that can't decide between many girls he can choose from (indecision!). Both take a dark tone mid series when problems begin to arise. Shuffle! has a more overall light mood with some funny moments but can get heavy at times, whereas School Days tends to be much darker altogether. Both are good examples of how indecision can lead to serious problems, especially when it envolves human relationships. Also both plots occur mostly in High School featuring students. They have very good plots and have a lot of twists and turns. However, these shows are definitely *not* for the weak of heart. read more
These both animes are taking place in school environment. I think that Shuffle is more fun-based anime, while School Days is more serious about situation. Both of main characters are surrounded by girls from everywhere. I must say that Rin from Shuffle is a guy with a character and heart, while Itou from School Days is somehow total bitch.
Althrough, I really enjoyed both of these animes as they have lot in common (at least first halves of them do). When I first saw Asa, I've instantly imagined Sekai from SD. You'll see why. :)
The last 6 episode of Shuffle remind me of School Day. And on top of that both series are highschool harem, romacne & drama. If you enjoyed School Day then you might like Shuffle however if you like Shuffle you might not 100% enjoy School day
Both shows follow similar formats with initially starting off as a light-hearted rom-com, however transitioning to a more drama based insane romance drama towards the end (much quicker pace in School Days due to less episodes)
Both have a school setting and a romance where one of the girls is basically THE definition of "yandere" and the boy doesn't speak his mind (or, quite frankly, is an idiot).
There's gore in both shows (though in Mirai Nikki a lot more).
School days rather focuses on the romance and the drama, while Mirai Nikki has a plot that revolves around a survival game, though the romance is still important for the way the character act.
Both can be a bit disturbing at certain parts and both are kind of hit-or-miss shows with a lot of people loving them and a lot of people not liking them at all. read more
Both contain obnoxious characters, yanderes and (spoiler) severed heads.
The protagonists are both idiots.
School Days has less gore than Mirai Nikki, however, and is a lot more bearable. Mirai Nikki is longer with a more complex plot, whereas School Days instead focuses on the "romance".
For those who likes "yandere", should watch Mirai Nikki, the women protagonists of both animes are psychopaths (Kotonoha and Yuno). Mirai Nikki is more violent and dramatic than School Days, but both of them have the "Psychopath Love".
There is an obessive girlfriend, the story is very twisted and deep, and at the end there is extreme violence involved. I highly recommend if you're into horror , an extremely deep story and a little romance.
Both have Yanderes
Both deal with teen love
Both have WTF I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING endings
Both get creepier the more you watch it
Both deal with the stress of having the wrong person falling in love with you
These two series can gives you a bit of enjoyment because of the retarded characters in the show. Both are gory and dramatic which also focuses on romance. If you are a person who like dark stories, well, you're gonna enjoy these two shows.
They both employ similar tactics of trying to play on emotions to cover up how shallow the characters actually are. This of course is just how I feel about them. If you enjoyed one you may enjoy the other.
1. The boy lied, the boy is an asshole (actally a looser).
2. Broken hearted girl/s who seek for revenge
To be honest in my opinion School Days is much better than Elfen Lied, from originality to characters. There's atleast lots of sex so the nudity is justifiable.
Revolving around highly unconventional romances & relationships, both anime get cruelly dark and are full of characters (including some from the main cast) you're likely to outright hate. Both also have dated low-budget animation (though sometimes Elfen Lied looks good). Stay away if you're faint of heart, but if you can enjoy watching things get progressively worse for everyone involved then you're in for a ride.
Also, DON'T expect similar levels of violence. Elfen Lied gets bloodier than most TV anime ever do mere moments into the first episode, while School Days has next to no violence until the last episode (and even then it's considerably less than even just the first five minutes of Elfen Lied). Still, it only goes to show how easily triggered some sorts get and is a big part of why these two anime are often shunned these days. read more
If you are feeling like “Oh drat, that dick boss makes me show him how to reboot his router again, I’m exhausted body and mind, I need refreshment. Yes, maybe I should take a bath, have some fries and watch that good stuffs I got the other day. What does it call? MAGICAL GIRL? And some comedy called SCHOOL DAYS? Oh I’m gonna have my great time with cute anime chicks and of course without idiot boss, heck yeah.” (This is the rendition of an exhausted working man at the best extent the writer can imagine, as he is currently unemployed.)
However, both shows “first impression” is entirely different from what you will experiences on your couch 25 minutes from now on. Both shows, in short, solve a problem of Desperate Housewives using the method of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. There are even some saws used.
The key idea of both shows is to do everything the audiences never expected to see in that kind of shows (namely Cutesy Magical Girl Revolution and Sparkling Lovey Dovey School Life.) Promote the show as if it was that kind of show, then release stream of bloody depressing nightmare upon unsuspecting audiences ove the course of three months. Only after both show ended that public will know truly what the damp red gory hell was the shows about.
If you are looking for pure viewing pleasures without helluva depressing content, consults critic before start watching any show from now on, or at least take a clean look at rating. Pretty sure no consumers are safe from horrific nightmare trap in the age that directors love to play with surprise element. read more
Both of these shows start out pretty innocent and sweet, but early on there's a plot twist that completely changes the mood of the show. Both of these anime are also famous deconstructions. Madoka deconstructs magical girl anime while School Days deconstructs the harem genre. Both of these shows are worth checking out if you like dark anime.
Nope this is not a joke, these two series have a fundamental similarity which cannot be ignored. These shows fundamentally break down their respective genre by showing you what would happen if people were really thrown into the situations found in anime:
-School days shows what would probably happen if a generic teenager found a harem of girls forming around him
- Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica shows what would probably happen if young girls were given magical powers and expected to fight
Among the shows you can't judge by their cover you have School Days and Mahou Shoujou Madoka Magica. Despite the apparence they have dark tones, their general concept becomes "clearer" the more episodes you watch, which means it is required to watch many episodes if not all of them "to get it". Due to their uniqueness they are must-watch, at least for reference.
It's harder to appreciate school days than madoka magica though because the concept is somewhat more extreme and school days has also many flaws due maybe to the too ambitious storyline.
Note : avoid spoilers avoid reading reviews the more you can
if you like the typical high school romance love triangle with a very deep plot twist then you will definitely like this anime...... it may look a little simple anime but if you watch it, you will see more than you expected
Shows that have a seemingly average school boy that just attracts beautiful girls of all kinds like a magnet and for reasons that only the writers of these stories would know. Within these harems, there is a love triangle going on between the male lead, male lead's girlfriend (female lead 1), and female lead 2.
they both have two messed up dudes with a small harem going along here and there just fucking girls and everything gos crazy but they both I enjoyed very much -wink wink- except for the crazy parts........ they were f'n awesome......... if you think im crazy well I like to take that as a comment bleh :P
Both are psychological series with similar protagonist and a lot of girls around him.
I preferred White Album, because its more interesting and mature than School Days, but overall they are very alike in my opinion. Enjoy!
Both shows feature "Drama" as well as focusing on what happens when a person decides to not just pick one person in a harem.
Both feature a main character who seemingly has no problem with sleeping around with multiple girls and it adapts a well known visual novel.
Somehow both of the series give similar fealings at least for me, especially around the end of the anime. Both deals with deep feelings, in one of the animes the main point is love between siblings and the other one is centers around a guy who dates more girls at the same time. Worth to watch. Really.
- Both anime ends up showing a sex life behavior that is not tolerated by society.
- Both anime starts lightheartedly, but turns out to be quite provocative later.
- People tends to either love or hate them. They rarely say they are average.
- Main characters somehow seem to attract every single girl they meet.
- Both involve the main character wanting to experience sexual things and explore different girls.
- Both contain some ecchi scenes.
- Innocent love twists into something else.
- Revolved around school and drama.
- Both give off a similar atmosphere.
You are a teenager, you are in love and you do not know how to express it and also a girl is harassing by knowing what you keep inside.Two series that show the darkest side that someone can reach for love and how feelings can hurt others and confuse themselves.
While watching both of these anime, I got the same feeling many of the times. Both of the stories start off with a shy girl and a kind of jerk guy getting together, the only thing is that Saikano has more science-fiction elements.
From there, there are quite a few sexual scenes in both of these anime and I got creeped out by some of them in both of the anime. The main guy character in both of these has trouble keeping his mind on one girl at a time, although the one in Saikano is way nicer, but they are both unloyal, sometimes uncaring people.
In both anime, the characters get together early on and then as the anime continues, they end up seeing less and less of each other and spend more time with other people in other places, but both girls only want to see their boyfriend.
Both of these anime also have rather insane endings, even though Saikano is on a much more epic scale and School Days is on a much more personal vendetta reason, but I ABSOLUTELY suggest this to ANYONE that liked School Days, if you want it with some Science-Fiction and a cute girl that's also a weapon. read more
They might not appear to be very similar, but the progress of the relationships between the characters in both animes are depressing to say the least.School days and Saikano share the sad storyline and (I don't want to write a spoiler) have pretty endings that get you want to see it again and again. Hope this was helpful
Both deal with the complications of relationships, deceit, cheating, and loss of innocence. However, NANA doesn't make you want to tear out your hair quite as much, and isn't sluttery on such a high scale.
Really twisted, f#@ked up love stories.
They're twisted in the sense that everything is all cute and honky dory and all the characters are getting along at first, but then pretty much everyone becomes an asshole over time and the whole love story (or stories) becomes very dark, depressing, and dramatic ("dramatic" is an understatement)
If you even remotely enjoyed School Days, Nana is perfect for you.
Both are VERY VERY dark and crazy (in a good way). The psychology of the characters in both shows are very important to understand the series and even to like them. Also, every character isn't evil but isn't also good, they're all neutral, in other words, they're realistic characters. Another similarity is that both are descontruction of their own genres: Harem and School in School Days, Mecha and Action in Evangelion.
Personally, I think Evangelion is better, cause of its symbolism and hidden messages, but School Days is also a great show, regardless of what is said about it.
Both Kyou and Sekai offer training the main hero with their relationships with their girlfriends.
Also, Kyou and Ryou fell for the same guy, just like Katsura and Sekai, and get hurt because of that.
Written by Shirobake and LiCha.
+ both from visual novel as one the available routes
+ same school romance setting
+ both 2 girls from both series have similar personalities, one is outgoing helping the other shy girl
+ similar meet up, date, and break up pattern
+ both picture Male MC as indecisive and pathetic
- School Days is far more dramatic and extreme than Clannad kyou-Hen
- while Kyou-Hen is shorter than School Days, the original Clannad is far longer and better than School Days
If some of you gourmets out there enjoyed the unforgettable, extraterrestrial atmosphere of School Days, goreness, cute little children playing with body parts and organs... or the reasonable decisions, unpredictable thought process & mental synthesis of the main characters - and if you yearn for more - then PUPA is the way to go.
Kimikiss has some semblance of what School Days might have turned out to be, if the characters in School Days hadn't snapped and lost their minds. Both Kimikiss and School Days (except for the last few episodes) share much in common - the teen angst, the drama, the love triangle. Perhaps Kimikiss has more of a larger cast and a bit of a wider variety of characters though.
The two top-tier anime for REAL MEN; those who follow the philosophy of 'treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen' a little too closely.
Makoto of School Days infamy sees it as perfectly fine to sleep around/have orgies with as many girls at his school as humanly possible over a short period of time... immediately after confessing his love to a sweet, innocent, melon-breasted girl. Why should a guy give a toss about things like feelings and impregnation - after all, they're just stupid hoebags if hey get all clingy after sexy time, and it's their fault if they get preggers.
Ryuuichi of Blue Flames infamy goes more down the Light Yagami path; not caring for the joys derived from sexy time. He's willing to enslave as many girls as it takes with his (presumably) massive penis in order to take over the world. Using and abusing hoebags is like breathing for manly man Ryuuichi. Put simply, he's like Light would be if he used vaginas instead of deadly pieces of paper to achieve his goals.
Note: those with the brains of squirrels may want to avoid these two. I'd hate to unintentionally offend anyone by recommending these titles. read more
If you are in a bad day and don't give a damn anymore about seizing every day because you are really pissed off so much then watch either of those to take some time of your life to hit the no man's point of positivity. If it turns that you love either of these anime so bad that i guarantee your edge would be sharpen and you can be more proud and would appreciate anime a bit more as an entertainment medium for being amusing.
It had this very morbid vibe to it and at most parts it left me with the same impression as school days. I know this isnt the very "common" recommendation but there was this strangeness that both shows have in common.
Were you watching Tsuki ga Kirei and feeling "hmm, this sure is a nice love story, but it could really use every character being a horrible and irredeemable person?" Then look no further than this!
See, School Days is everything that Tsuki ga Kirei is not. Tsuki leaves you with butterflies in your stomach, while S.D. makes you want to grab the nearest sharp object and send it through the screen.
They are not really similar in their execution, but both animes depict well the importance of relationships, and how you shouldn't f*ck up when loving someone, also, I think both are very realistic, sure, School days has its harem, but I guess that what Makoto did, was what almost every horny teenager out of his mind would do if he had all those chicks at his hand.
Tsuki ga kirei depicts a nice light hearted portray of healthy school romance, with its problems and loveable learning, so both animes show how real life people feelings work like, and there's where I find the big similarity.
Mentally challenging girls harem, featuring breathtaking romance with large casualties.
Loosely parodied role-playing genre games, most girls have their weapon of choice and battle to death for their prized boyfriend.
One guy surrounded by numerous girls with a creative variety of psychological issues and violent tendencies. Both depict violence, gore, and associated depravity without pulling any punches and have some rather unsexy sexual content; neither is exactly a mood-boosting feel-good series. Denpateki na Kanojo doesn't really bother with cultivating the romatic relationship School Days busies itself with; it's more like if the end of School Days was all there was to a series -- and it ends up working quite well!
This story is a twist, never really know what would happen next, I think Air has that same affect but just not all the time like this anime... Truly amazing both are, but I dislike the way the characters turn out in this.... Really hate it...
Both are harem anime based on hentai games. Yotsunoha is just shorter, softer, and insanity-free.
Also, in both the male protagonist is called Makoto (miss Kotonoha's "Makoto-kun" 20 times per episode? don't worry, Nono's "Maaaa-kuuunnn" is equally annoying).
+ Very mature romance stories about a guy has trouble deciding between girls
+ Both involve the guy getting involved in sexual activities with the girls but are not hentai
- Nozoki Ana is much more explicit and only involves a love triangle whereas School Days is less explicit but involves more girls
Two works that go from a boy who is attracted to one girl, while being harassed by another, being used to fulfill the whims of this one. Where the protagonist will try to decide for his platonic love or a love that makes him feel free to do what he wants. Surrounded by indecision about what is right and what is wrong. Although you can already imagine by which direction it will go, no?
The frequency of Risque scenes are about the same (Akane has Pantsu Shots while School days has.... Eroge scenes). The Love Triangle Aspect is very similar in terms of how the characters deal with it. The Main Character and Supporting Characters in both animies have the same Personalities if put side by side
Both start with the main (Geno Killer and Makoto) meeting with a girl (Yuuhi and Kotonoha) and after this, they date and the best friend/sister of main (Minato and Sekai) becomes the best friend of that girl. But during the show, all this grow into a triangle love with much drama and fights. Also, Characters are alike too.
Romance, School life, Love, Feelings and then there is certainly the unexpected ending (if you include Kokoro Connect - Michi Random). Ohh and don't forget the one girl beeing totally misunderstood and her feelings beeing constantly trampled over.
School Days is extremely similar to this anime I'd be surprised if no one notices. They both deal with serious issues and they both send that message out very clearly. Both stories start out very nicely and then takes a huge twist, some of you might think it's gross while others (like myself) will think they're masterpieces. For Koi Kaze I didn't give it a 10/10 because it wasn't an anime I'd recommend to any normal person they'd probably think it would be boring and give up about 3 episodes in while School Days you'd always be on the edge of your seat but if you're into the whole life is hard thing these animes are recommended to you. read more
For those interested in tragic love triangles, "School Days" and "Kataku" / "House of Flames" both touch upon this subject.
Also, in these two anime, there exists a situation where a man forces himself upon a woman in moments of desperation.
Both include some sort of Harem. Only 2 "significant" male roles for each. Quite a bit of fanservice for each. Both have really weird and random stories that may anger some people. I hate both of these to my very core and hope that both of them die in a fire.
Both are romance/drama/harem shows where the main guy has trouble breaking up with girls and is very indecisive (School Days takes it to the extreme though). They both have somewhat unique art styles and are about equally good. The differences are that School Days is a bit darker and more mature, while Kimi no Iru Machi covers a broader time span.
While these shows seem to be completely different in premise, both are including despicable characters who make bad choices, which leads to catastrophic conclusion. Overall, both shows will leave you depressed and emotionally broken.
I don't know why. But watching freezing vibration feels like school days.
the atmosphere very similar. If you love mixed emotion anime go watch these two series. they have different plot but shares the same feels.
Both animes tell a story about character development and improvement, on one hand ichigo at the start cant do anything but at the final stage he can even beat Casper, and on the other School days main characters at the start hes only a noob doing what he does (+18) but ends up being pretty good at it.
Both series feature characters in highschool more or less having fun, but tensions start to build up during the show and in the end things end up really bad for basically everyone involved. Both are an example of a school anime gone wrong.
In School Days things go wrong because of the characters themselves, while in Danganronpa 3 Zetsubou-hen a person outside of the group causes everything to end up bad.
Don't get fooled! There's more to it than what meets your eyes. At first they might look like your usual cutesy series with the characters in both series following their own typical lives. However that's wrong. They're both seinen, so be sure to expect deep themes. They're both about main characters striving for something minor. Whether it's a girl or a dream they will work hard for it. They realize that they cannot do it alone so they will involve someone who'll be a core part for their future decision. Along the way they will have to make decisions such as if they value their dreams more or not which instead means that they'll be a sacrifice for the sake of their nearby and loved ones. There's a lot of mental stress for them and they'll be running away from their main objective multiple times. Kuma Miko will play the Slice of Life card for the characters to take a mental break and might even become lazy to the point where they can't move and everyone has to do every minor thing in their stead, which will play a big part in the conclusion. School Days is more harsh and will play with the main characters life and possibly ship his head with bloody thoughts. You'll see an interesting series of mind games, psychological manipulating and high level decision making which accumulates a lot of frustration. You as a viewer will also be mentally impacted and have a lot of unique emotions towards most of the events that occurs. I ended up feeling really terrible while watching these series and they did impact me with questions such as suicide, manipulation and respect towards other people. This included not making girls be your toy or slave. Are these things really okay and how should you treat other people? You'll find it out while watching these two. They both answer the same questions differently. If you had a hard time understanding one of them, the other one might relate to you more. read more
Both shows seem generic (albeit slightly edgy) at first, but then the ending comes along, and it blows the rest of the show out of the water (in a bad way).
Additionally, both shows are considered the absolute nadir of both their respective genre (harem for School Days, Panty fighter for Master of Martial Hearts), and both are absolutely despised by many people who have had the misfortune of seeing them. Chances are that those who enjoy one will enjoy the other.
* Girl 1 is a yandere
* Our MC has a secret crush on Girl 1
* Girl 2 helps MC get closer to Girl 1
* Girl 1 turns out to have feelings for MC as well
* School harem
-- Despite these similarities, School Days is a stark contrast to Renai Boukun which is a lighthearted, comedic, and nonsensical show you're not supposed to take seriously.
unlike school days that bring you to the path of destruction, golden time tend to give the audience the path of salvation that there is a second time. despite those difference I believe that you can tell that both of these series are good.
there are some similarities to both of these series. they are romance anime, and at some point you'll get annoyed to the main male character just like "how could you do that ?" or something like that. you might also feel same atmosphere in both of them.
*don't hope any sexual sceen on golden time :p
You want another depressing plot with an a*****e as the MC? Then try this one. It comes with the added bonus of having an actually consistent story writing, but be warned the ending is very... peculiar.
these 2 animes are very similar in the fact that they both start soft
and then take a dramaric turn that'll leave u suprised
the one thing i can say after waching these 2 anime is that love makes u do crazyyy things
Kaede, Sia, Nerine and Asa were Rin´s best friends when they were child, when they grow up, everyone of them gets in love with Rin and well, Primula meets Rin and after he gives her a kitty toy gets in love with him too. We could say that this is another Harem.
both shows start off seeming innocent and happy but as they go on the characters have to face confrontations with other characters, with themselves and the consequences of there actions. both shows are amazing and if you enjoyed one give the other a shot they were truly amazing and have beautiful stories to tell.
Both became infamous somehow. Criticized everywhere, hated online, and subject of many f-word, anime industry at its best. Story-wise nothing is much similar. For exact comments on why it is hated please ask the haters themselves. The so-called haters are available online for your convenience.
both are well ummm Harems and well umm the two main girl characters are umm how do I say this ummmmm well.....rape in Kanokon so far and school days has ummm sexy - the Y and both are just screwed up. >_<
The same plot where a boy is surrounded by many girls. The same type of love triangle. The main characters share the same personality: the boy is in love with a shy beautiful girl and asks for help to his friend which is a energetic girl that is in love with him. But, They differ a lot in the end, one has a happy end, other has a tragic end.
Both series start off fairly innocuously, but the numerous dysfunctions in the characters and their relationships begin to wear on as the stories continue. Finally, it reaches a point where everybody is unlikable for a large number of reasons.
Even though this animes have nothing a like it just that some characters are similar like
Himeji/ Kotonoha= both are super cute, shy big chested girls with a horrible cooking
Minami/ Sekai= both are tomboyish, flat chested girls (who complains about it) but are good at cookings.
Himeji and Minami/ Sekai and Kotonoha= are really good friends but they are both in love with the same guy.
On both animes there is a pool episode. Both have ecchi. Although baka to test is more comedy and school days is more drama.
Not just because both series involves school stories. Both series start in the same way, but both take different destinies. Both series have a main character (Otonashi / Makoto), who is very close of the cheerful girl (Yurippe / Sekai). The main character is interested in a passive girl (Kanade / Kotonoha).But that last point creates the difference between both series. The Angel Beat plot shows Otonashi being very distant from Kanade, but he starts to me more close to her. By the other hand, School Days plot show Makoto being very close to Kotonoha, but he starts to be more distant to her.
Both series has an unforgettable ending... read more
