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.

Both are anime that seem to be nice and charming but have a awful twist! 
report Recommended by Katbot
At first, it looks like a school slice of life with a bit of romance and harem, but in the end it ends up beind SO much more than that. Both reach a certain depth in predestined relationships, even if the show doesn't focus on it.

If you loved clannad you'll also like myself yourself. Because both of these anime series have similar drawings, sad background stories of characters and hopeful expectations from the future and a big romance

These two romance series presents to the viewer likable characters and cute moments. Both are currently airing in the 2007 fall season and have male leads who look similar to one another.

Both shows have a main character who is returning to a town that they lived in as a child, and are both slowly remembering events that happened there when they were children.

Main character moving back to a town he lived in as a child. Dark depressing mood in both anime. 
report Recommended by 5layer
Both have the "nostalgia" thing going for them with the plot jumping back in forth from past to present. Both also have something happen in the past that has caused the characters to change somehow through the years 
report Recommended by ShindouNagi
Realism is one of the many themes you will see in both of these series. But beyond that, both anime(s) focuses on the characters on what they try to become as the episodes progresses. Then of course, there is drama, comedy (less so in later episodes), emotional scenes, and romance mixed with various misunderstandings. Ultimately both series reflects the more emotional and sadder side of a romance story.

Both anime are drama like and in both of them there are old childhoodfriends... xD 
report Recommended by Traum
The Shuusuke and Shuri's escape is similar to Ryuuji and Taiga's situation. Both of anime are funny at the beginning and serious at the end.

Both anime series are based off visual novels. The main male protagonist in both series gets involved with other characters including his childhood friend. In both series, there is comedy, drama, and romance. The drama is more dramatic in Myself;Yourself but also presented in LB in various arcs. Both series takes place at a local school setting in a lighthearted environment. There is fun also at times, emotional moments.

Both series are dramas about the lives of a group of school friends and the personal problems they have to face.

the main male character comes back to a town he used to be in without his parents, and then sees friends he has made during his time there, he gets appointed to a management role in the school, he also finds love there. 
report Recommended by walloman
Similar in the fact that drama arises when an old flame returns as well as the drama, misunderstandings, and love triangle that soon follows.  
report Recommended by Stark700
Both are happy on the outside but you can sense a darker plot forming 
report Recommended by chizururaikoji
Don't get Twins confused with Teacher. both are completely different. Both Twins and M;Y involve a guy who has recently returned to his hometown after an extremely long time, and begins to find friends that he forgot he had. One of the females always has a crush on him, and the others support her even though the guy shows no interest in them. This is an anime of hardship. 
report Recommended by Shadolance
Premise is the same - reunion of childhood friends - whereas Myself; Yourself is more involved since its a series.

If you love music and romance than this is your anime. They're both amazing in the fact that the music is good and the plot is amazing. If you love romance and school life than this is an anime you should watch.

Although there doesn't seem to be many similarities between these two shows, both shows sent shivers down my spine and made me ask myself some serious questions. Haruhi made me realize my insignificance or that maybe I'm less insignificant than I first thought. Myself;Yourself made me reconsider my situation and my life in general as well as changing how I saw the relationships between everyone around me. All in all, both series raise real questions and make you think hard.  
report Recommended by Konobae
Both shows start off similar with happy and positive vibes, yet quickly turn to reveal the more grim nature of the show. Similarly, both shows deal with problems within the cast and the ensuing drama as a result of them trying to overcome them

A group of five friends deal with romance and difficult family lives, and come together in the process.

Beyond the surface, there is more than meets the eye.

report Recommended by gudrunoli
These are both nice, short, good romance anime's. It's the same thing again. But in a different anime. I personally recommend to all of romance fan's to watch both!

Myself;Yourself and Golden Time take place in a school-life setting with drama and romance. The main male protagonists have a history with their childhood friend. Some of those memories aren't very pleasant and resurface in present time from where the story takes place. Both series' main female protagonists contrast with another but both start to grow feelings for the MC. There's also other characters that get involved with the story, influencing it. 
report Recommended by Stark700
Both have a focus on characters that work on getting over sad pasts including mental illness and trauma.  
report Recommended by misa98765
Both series start as simple high school romantic comedies composed of various character focus episodes and mini-arcs and eventually switch over to serious, high-stakes drama and varying levels of angst. Happiness! is pretty much just Myself ; Yourself with magical girls -- by-the-book harem setup, generic insert-self-here protagonist, obligatory twins, and all.

Two boys move from their hometown to Tokyo to live with their aunt/uncle and girl cousin. The city looks different then they remember and are both starting their first year of high school. Both involve love, drama and memories. Sana= Yamato Nanaka= Suzuka Aoi= Miho Syuusuke= Yasunobu Shuri= Miki Asami= Honoka  
report Recommended by Tenrai88
The situations of the characters are somewhat similar. After years of being apart, the male and female protagonists are reunited and realize that they are in love. Iin both cases, there is an obstacle that needs to be overcome before they can be together.

shuffle + myself;yourself are anime based on high school, it was happy in the begginning, but went downhill with the happiness, and also the girls have a secret that is really bad. 
report Recommended by Gwing
myself is more drama and slice of life, whilst sola has more action and a bit of magic, but both start off with a hint of comedy but turn out to be dark and mind-blowing. 
report Recommended by sugarplumfairy
A lot of girls and one main male charachter who dont know what to do and always doing stupid things and eveything happend at school  
report Recommended by Sweet_Touch
Some similar story like some guy came back to its home town to find its childhood friends and they start remembering their pasts. 
report Recommended by yvanc
What do you get when you add Myself;Yourself, Kore wa Zombie, Baka no Test, Toradora, Yosuga no Sora, Suzumiya Haruhi and a bit of School Days? You get this anime, albeit less drama, less gore, less violence but nevertheless the plot elements, characters and references can be found similar to the other anime. 
report Recommended by Nequam
Similar concept and plot, including trauma from childhood; forbidden love. 
report Recommended by LordCrane
Both have a main character returning home after some time, and it picks from there where they try to build relationships and make friends. They both have more than one relationship going on. kimi-kiss is more straight-forward involving its main characters, while for myself ; yourself, some of the main characters have a hidden unknown past. 
report Recommended by Friendlysoul
Both are tear-jerkers and has lot of VERY dramatic scenes... (T_T) 
report Recommended by CrimsonFatalis
Unreal School life-Love story Anime, i recommend it for everyone!!!  
report Recommended by Sayonara24
Although LovCom(Short for Lovely Complex) is much lighter than Myself;Yourself, they both have a good amount of drama in it. Both are also romance-concentrated, and deal with the troubles of the main characters and their relationships. Lovely Complex is so hilarious!! So if you're looking for a romance-comedy somewhat similar to Myself;Yourself, then I recommend it to you(vice-versa for LovCom). ^ ^ 
report Recommended by kitkat23316
Both are romantic comedies about childhood friends. Both are also set in a more rural setting. Lamune is a little more easy going but Myself Yourself is definitely a show that keeps you tied 
report Recommended by Hisashikun
I do not know how this is never .. For I can not control at first sight, I saw a kind of typical events, which are somewhat Mixed few episodes, especially in the end, the story seemed similar .. All of them talk about students having to travel away for a long time and then start the story until he returns to see things have not been deemed by the events change the course of his life for reasons unknown, we will see them in the end

Myself ; Yourself is very similair to W ~ Wish They both have main characters that had some kind of trauma in the past.
