Tales of Impossible love. Although one is told on the point of view of the girl and the other on the male side, the two touch to a lot of similar subjects ans problem encountered by the characters and seriously the two main girls in koi to uso are pretty much 2 half of Hanabi in kuzu no honkai.

Flawed people explore their emotions while recognizing the consequences of their actions. 
report Recommended by Serviam
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.

Netsuzou TRap and Kuzu no Honkai share similar scenarios with their main cast of characters. There are some unrequited advances and both shows share a similar drama aura and aren't afraid to show tension between their characters. Each show animates differently but show a lot of focus on the sexual interactions.

Both animes treat romance in a different way. They show imperfect relationships. Nothing is perfect and there's no such thing as "They're meant to to each other". In the end people have so many selfish wishes and don't give a shit about other people wishes. I really love when I can see these realities been shown in animes.

They both explore human feelings and relationships in a realistic way. They both revolve a lot around trust and the fears people have when trying to connect with others while desperately protecting thenselves from getting hurt. They both deal with destructive relationships, and thwy explore the reasons and paths that lies behind people's actions and personalities. They both feel very real and heartwarming, while not being afraid to show the darker aspects of life. If you like one - definitely watch the other! They're both really refreshing compared to a lot of the anime that's made today, in that they have a lot of depth  read more

This is a rare breed of anime - mature romance. 
report Recommended by AlexGK
- Features young adults - Sexual relationships but not ecchi - Characters generally willing to sacrifice their long-term romantic health for immediate intimacy - Main crux of the series is people trying to figure out the differences between sex, love, and lust. - Will either feel very real or very fantastical based on the viewers life experiences with sex and love.

These shows are different, but have 2 main similarities between them: 1) It is "psychological" non-traditional anime romance based in the inability of characters to have fulfilling relationships due to emotional issues 2) The plot progression is heavily focused on the internal growth of characters, more than on the external events

You are wondering what these anime have in common when they have different plots. while it is true that they differ in the story, they have some similarities. If you're a fan of : - beautiful artwork - melancholic instrumental music - taboo love - lots of erotic scenes Then you'll probably like these anime. In Kuzu no Honkai the characters are developed better while Yosuga no Sora is by arcs. The Genres are different since one is a seinen and other is a (eroge) harem but nevertheless, they are both mature anime.

Kuzu no Honkai and Koi Kaze both explore forbidden love in a very dramatic way, and flesh out the conflicting emotions that those kinds of relationships can bring about. I'd also recommend KimiNozo and Aku no Hana to the masochists who are into Kuzu no Honkai, as I think those shows can elicit a similar sense of emotional desperation.

You wanted twisted depressed teenagers, desiring things they can't have, with a morbid idea of love, everything served in a peculiar artstyle? There you have.

Both main characters are helping each other to get the one they really love

Both explore the topic of human emotions and relationships in a darker setting. 
report Recommended by animedork95
Both animes experience the realer elements of romance and touch on human natures obsession with love. Love isn't perfect is a recurring theme in both animes 
report Recommended by ali11747
Both anime have kinda "agressive" romance. Nazo is maybe more specific than Kuzu. 
report Recommended by Ryuu2511
Kinky Stuff happens in secret... Tried to do much honeytrap and sexual acts to keep in company.. Since the romance in each other is still there.. Hanabi and Mugi's indecent relationship is actually similar to Wakana and Izumi .. 
report Recommended by HikiNEET021
- unrequited/unknown love with the "new" teacher, who is a childhood friend or something like that - main character is straight (or says that at least), but also has feelings for people with the same gender (more or less actually) - everyone is kinda edgy and envious

Multiple love triangles in both series. (Ex: Mugi, Hanabi, Sanae in Kuzu no Honkai and Mika, Seiji, Namie in DRRR !!) Many romances or twisted loves between the characters. (Eg Akane of Kuzu no Honkai or Haruna of DRRR !!) These series are very focused on the psychology and the development of the characters.

Many character parallels can be taken with the series, mainly with jury and akio, who are like sanae and akane respectively. Also certain themes the show is talking about are also talked about in utena, like adulthood and love, but utena is far more stylistic then kuzu no honaki.

The Anime don't have much similarity. Although, if you like Kuzuno Honkai you might aswell like Grisaia no Kajitsu. It has Ecchi in it and weird Romance. Its more of a harem. But you will most likely like it, if you liked this anime.

While different in many aspects, these animes both tackle the difficult and sometimes uncomfortable subject of adolescent and young adult romance. Kuzu no Honkai veering more towards the difference between love and lust, sexual awakening, and the pressures put onto young people (by peers and society in general) to be sexually active. it shows the misery and desperation felt by young people when their love life is not going the way they want. This anime has a much more sombre feel to it, and can be very uncomfortable in some scenes. Golden Time tackles the more emotional aspects of young love, which mainly focuses around intense  read more

Both had a unique love story, both had beautiful art styles and both are worth watching if you like dramatic romance.

Shows about frustrated teens for frustrated teens. Kuzu no Honkai is for XXX than FranXX though. 
report Recommended by Lemon
- Similarly light artstyle - Love webs everywhere - Self absorbed preteens and teenagers 
report Recommended by Lemon

Hana and Ringo look similar. They both are inlove with an older man (that both wear glasses) who they see as an older brotherly figure and are inlove with them. Hana and Ringo's crushes fall inlove with another person who appear to be something they truly aren't. Mawaru penguin's plot doesn't really revolve around Ringo's situation, but Ringo's story takes up a big chunk of mawaru penguin.  
report Recommended by Rhazel
they are both on the more outgoing, alternative shoujo anime titles side. Both have strong and well thought through characters and don't follow your usual girl meets boy plot.  
report Recommended by Babyssb
Both shows are: - Ladden with heavy drama - Full of love problems: X likes Y, Y like Z, Z like everyone etc. etc. - about self-absorbed, self-loathing teenagers The artstyle is very different. but the atmosphere is similar; both make attempts to appear smart, mature, and full of depth much like the teenage protagonists the two shows focus on. 
report Recommended by Lemon
Both are examples of on screen sexual intimacy involving unhealthy relationships that is not grossly exaggerated (physically at least). The MC in both are girls with brother complexes, and the story revolves around the drama this leads to. Whilst Kuzu no Honkai is longer, with more character exploration, it doesn't distract from the vacuity; if you are after a similar show in terms of cheap softcore pornservice/artistic sexual intimacy (depending on how you look at it), this is the show to go for. 
report Recommended by Lemon
Both Tsuki ga Kirei and Kuzu no Honkai has their romance part being very realistic and placed with reality - except one is about hardships of a relationship through growing up and being affected by their friends and family, while the other one was dating someone else to soothe the pain for not being able to date their crush to the point of comforting each other sexually.)

Unrequited love. Less drama.
