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.  
report Recommended by ShadowBlazer3000
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.

This is a rare breed of anime - mature romance.

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.  
report Recommended by Homu_chan
Both main characters are helping each other to get the one they really love 
report Recommended by yardargami
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.

Both anime have kinda "agressive" romance.
Nazo is maybe more specific than Kuzu.

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.

Like Hachiman, Every character had a some ideology within themselves... as they talk about their living in life with such a messy and bad routine

The drama had a same average occuring in some thematic scenario...
Some scenes are just too provocative... it burdens some point of view which is too delusional and cynical... and it's not also your average romance.. to start with

For those who're tired of highshool romantic comedies and want some real drama.

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
Continuation of depressing tone
The main characters like in Kuzu no Honkai deal with lots of unrequited love for each other
Similar drama and relatable characters 
report Recommended by gracerenjolras
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.

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. 
report Recommended by LuminousAnime
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
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. 
report Recommended by itavin
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 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
- 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
Both anime have a female student who loves her teacher and even has a female teacher to make it a love triangle. There isn't much at all that makes the two anime similar, but both anime really sell the sense of guilt they explore. Kodomo no Jikan explores the dangers of lolicon while Kuzu no Honkai explores multiple spectrums of a sick kind of love, but both anime don't hold back and have a sense of guilt if you're into that kind of thing.

Both main characters get into a weird relationship. where they dont love their partner but use each other for own benefits. 
report Recommended by Fristi-senpai
- 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. 
report Recommended by sickVisionz
- both include the complications of a troubled romance
- good sides and bad sides
- Alot of teenage drama
-phsycological drama about romance and friendship
