While not both in an omnibus format, both share the atmosphere, the plots and the feeling.

Similar art with both dealing with the relationship of more than one person. While in True Tears it is mostly focused on one male main character and his relationships and putting the other a bit in the background, are in kimikiss two male leads.

The atmosphere and the school setting is similar. Both are romance as well.

-Both animes focuses very deeply into the story that involves love triangles and one-sided love as well as problems surrounding it. -School Life 
report Recommended by MagicFlier
In both animes you have two girls in love with the same boy, and both of them are really splendid! Perhaps one of them a more normal and sweeter girl, and the other one much more energetic and crazy, but both splendid! You would wish that both of them could get the boy they love, and in the end it is a bit difficult to choose which of them is your personal favorite.

Both series focus on dramatic love triangles with a more serious and mature vibe. It's all about the swaying emotion of the heart, and the unfortunate circumstances and misunderstandings it brings the characters. Also while White Album 2 uses music, KimiKiss uses film.

Both are similar in the way you have more than one main character. The story revolves around all of them, following each of them at different times, their expedition and their relationships. Kimi-kiss is simpler and more straightforward than ef - a tale of memories!

High school romance with shy characters, and love triangles. 
report Recommended by KuroFox
They both use a movie club as on of the main driving points for the plot. 
report Recommended by JT08
As for starters, both series takes place in a school life setting. The main characters are in their youths where they experience school life at their fullest with activities, stress, and dating. Obviously, there is drama and romance in both series. There are a variety of characters in both series and most of them gets involved in one way or another throughout each episode. It doesn't follow a direct route where there's only one linear story. Rather, it involves intertwined arcs. Romance is a major part of both series.

High school life, childhood memories and friendship. Both of them shares these terms and is indeed highly recommended. 
report Recommended by cafekun
Both of them are about childhood friends which are almost like brother and sister. But when they have grown up the question is: are their feelings still the same? And both animes are really cute and pure love stories, you really feel happy when you are watching them. If you liked Kimikiss, I think you'll enjoy Lamune, and viceversa.

Both are romance/school involving multiple love triangles. Also both about shooting a movie for a film club.

These are actually not very similar, but if you liked one you will like other because these days it is not easy to find a romance anime that does not turn out to be harem. However, these two are not like that and are very satisfying with their romance and drama. In both, the main character loves only one girl. In Kimikiss, it first looks like the main loves another girl but the day his friend comes to his home, he starts to like her—he just doesn't realize this until end. In short, if you love romance anime that does not contain action or fantasy,  read more

High school setting - group of friends - love triangles

A great show has a similar school atmosphere both have love triangles 
report Recommended by AsT5
both are about high school students and their love stories. The two animes are about first love, with several interlaced love stories. also, their genres are similar and both have a romance with a bit of comedy. one more similarity is that the two animes are about shooting a movie for a film club. in my opinion, because Kimikiss has 24 episodes, its story and characters develop better than the Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 cm Datta.

Both series takes place at a school setting with various clubs and drama. Both series has comedy as well as romance featuring various characters of different personalities. Both series' character designs are similar as well as the artwork.

Similarities: The Characters are very similar to one another. Kouichi has a similar appearance as Raku. They both have a crush on a shy and reserved girl; Onodera in Nisekoi and Yuumi in Kimikiss. Both female leads are smart and lively. They both realize their love for the male lead. Both of the shows have a love-triangle. Both are also set in school. The only difference is that Nisekoi has elements of mystery in it and kimikiss has two main leads.

They are my top, favorite romance anime! Amazing romance, beautiful girl and guy, challenges, love triangle, and more. Ookami Shoujo is really funny also, so good choice if you looking for more than romance. 
report Recommended by iamYuyaSakaki
The animes both deal with romance and the caused problems. Though there're not quite the same of the content, the way of telling the relationships between the people is similar, you could say that's the biggest commonness: Both tell the story of a group of people, somehow all together related, and somehow not. Each person deals with his own problems, feelings, triangle-relationships and future and both are very good romance animes. One main difference is, that in Honey and Clover you're more into the boys side, in Kimi-Kiss on the girls. If you like a story, with a whole bunch of people dealing with love and  read more

High school slice of life romantic dramas. Need I say any more? Kimi kiss shows several characters fall in love, with several love triangles, whilst H2O there appears to be the obvious couple, however is much less predictable and more development on the character rather than relationship side. Both good similar romantic dramas though.

both school life romance, same atmosphere, and both pure and innocent 
report Recommended by Curtain
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
At one point of the each story, the main character is stuck choosing between his girlriend and another girl who is very dear to him...also, both animes have a good amount of drama in them... 
report Recommended by MyFriendSam
Once again, there is the similar situation where the main male (at least, one of them) and female protagonists haven't seen in each in ages and the time that follows this reunion. Unlike Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Iro Na, Kimi-kiss ~ pure rouge includes a couple of love triangles that revolve around the two main male characters. Both have a very light heated feel that is fun to watch but include the flair of drama that adds a bit of a spin to the series. 
report Recommended by zSolaris
both series depicts the main protagonists as childhood friends that were separated for many years and reunited at the beginning of the series, and both nana aihara and hinata okano are both cheery, childish and energetic, and are both younger sisters to their onee-chans kazuki aihara and makoto okano

To me both anime have to deal with complicated relationships.(You know,he loves her but she's in love with him,etc)

Both involve childhood friends re-uniting after a long period of time and are comedy romance as well.
