Very similar animes. Tsuki ga Kirei could be seen as a version of Just Because! in middle school. Besides having the same atmosphere, the romance type is very close to the one observed in Just Because!. They seem very realistic and not sometimes overly comic and silly.
The pace is very comfortable where there is no redundancies that'll make the story boring. It captures the viewer from the start until the end. The innocence of the characters in Tsuki ga is very notable. Probably its what it makes better than Just Because! where they are older.
Calm, nice and very cozy school romance dramas.
- Both are original works
- Both set on 3rd year students environment, though different grade
- Both have semi-realistic school romance
- Both have cute and pleasant vibes
- Both are quite slow paced, tsukigakirei is slower
- Both show anxiety, loneliness regarding graduation moment
- Both will remind you of your past school days
both tsuki and because talk about a group of characters and the development of their love life. Tsuki as a slower pace and we only follow a single couple (althought both have a love triangle)
Both are slice of life and are set in high school (both in the last year of high school)
Similar school atmosphere along with proper romance that both does not stall until the last few episodes before developing relationships.
Just Because! has a greater sense of realism compared to Tsuki ga Kirei's lighter atmosphere, but both converge towards the same audience and both have a rather heartwarming story for romance, school and slice of life fans.
To simply put it: TSUKI GA KIREI SEASON 2! just watched the first episode and I couldn't stop getting those Tsuki ga Kirei vibes. The characters seem somehow similar and the art is almost identical and it's both a calm and nice beautiful school romance story :)
The second original romance anime of this year, with central theme of using LINE (like the Japanese version of Whatsapp or Wechat mobile social networks). Up till now, Tsuki ga Kirei has better execution and character development in my opinion, but Just Because is more if not too dramatic in comparison.
It is funny how both animes gave me the same déjà vus of the mistakes and events that happened when I started dating my first girlfriend. What I love the most about these animes, and why I specifically recommend this anime over others is because of the LINE live messages that the characters send each other, a reminder touch of how attentive we were to her/his messages.
These two anime are definitely similar in many ways. However, Tsuki ga Kirei has a much more fulfilling ending as compared to Just Because.
Im very conflicted in deciding which one was better. The endings of these two anime gave me a bittersweet feeling and left me longing for more.
(Rated both 9/10)
"Just Because!" is like "Tsuki ga Kirei", except with older characters (high school) and with a bit more of a focus on the whole main friend group instead of just the main couple.
Oh, and also another great difference is that "Just Because!" doesn't have terrible random CGI scenes like "Tsuki ga Kirei". That should be enough of a reason to give it a try!
TL;DR: Both anime are extremely similar in terms of the romance and the respective characters in the show, but slightly different in regards to the length.
Kimi ni Todoke and Tsuki ga Kirei are truly gems in the romance department that are rarely seen in anime nowadays in which you have a pure relationship born from circumstances that the audience can actually relate to. The characters aren't blatantly unrealistic or in possession of supernatural/magical ability. They are simply two, normal individuals, who find affection in one another as they steadily become more involved with one another over time—recognizing each other's virtues and personalities.
The characters are also super similar in that the main protagonists are shy to some degree, but still seek to show their affection and grow closer to one another. It's just so satisfying to watch their subtle displays of affection every now and then.
The primary difference between the two shows lies in the pacing. Kimi ni Todoke uses 2 full seasons of around 26 eps each to develop the relationship between the main characters while Tsuki ga Kirei uses 12 eps to fully develop the relationship. Regardless, whether it be one or the other, the development is done spectacularly.  read more
Have you ever loved someone? Family, Friends, Self, and Others. Love is interpretation.
Kimi ni Todoke and Tsuki ga Kirei portrays true love. Just as described above.
Both are simply similar. There is every drama in school. Styles also very soft.
Sawako Kuronuma touches people including Shouta Kazehaya, and she grows up.
It is the most important thing for her to intersect Kazehaya. He changed her everything.
Kuronuma and Kazehaya's relationship is so grinning. You'll cheer them in your heart.
By the way, Tsuki ga Kirei's Protagonist, Kotarou Azumi.
He meets Akane Mizuno fortuity, and his life has begun to move.
Their relationship is more grinning than Kuronuma and Kazehaya.
If anything, I like Kotarou and Akane's relationship. The reason is that they are single-minded.
Of course, Kuronuma and Kazehaya are wondeful, too. As the plot develops, They are cute and there's no helping it. Awesome!
Words couldn't describe it, Both are laudable romance shows.
Please watch both of them. When you finished watching them, your mood already uplifting. And happiness. read more
The plot of Tsurezure is similar to the romance skits done at the end of each episode of Tsuki ga Kirei. Each skit focuses on a particular couple. Both anime are similar in terms of their "romcom" elements. The only difference is that Tsuki ga Kirei is mostly centralized around one couple and Tsurezure revolves around various selected couples.
If Tsurezure Children would focus only on one couple, it would propably look like Tsuki ga Kirei.
Both of the shows are very heartwarming, have a similiar style of romance and great cast of characters.
Both of them also have a unique artstyle in a sort of way, though I liked the art of Tsurezure Children way more.
These shows has pretty similar art styles and are grade school dramas that are about self-discovery. The biggest difference is that Hourou Musuko is more about gender identity while Tsuki ga Kirei is all about romance built from the ground up.
Both series have that shy ambientantion, with characters that doesnt show themselves that much, and making you wonder what are they thinking about and how they feel. A show to relax and enjoy a cute history very well told without cliches and fanservice.
This anime felt a lot like a more in-depth version f the beginnings of 5cm per Second. Similar plot, with young middle school kids having developed some sort of friendship or relationship with Tsukigakirei going a little bit more deeply into their developing feelings for one another. Both have a similar story with how the female character moves away during their high school years, however Tsukigakirei has the ending that would pretty much be the "what if?" ending for 5cm if the two ended up working out the distance problem and ended up together. Tsuki ga Kirei is a lot more detailed, considering it is a 12 episode series as opposed to a three part special.  read more
Both shows have a male and female MC who are inexperienced in love who eventually fall for each despite their differences. Both shows also have a very sweet/innocent tone to them, and they both have a romance which develops very early in the show.
Both are highschool love stories. The atmosphere is pretty much the same, even though Orange incorporates some sci-fi elements and Tsuki ga Kirei is more based on reality. They are both grounded, down to earth and realistic love stories.
Orange and Tsuki ha Kirei are both really great School/SliceOfLife/Romance anime, that really stand out in the genre. In both series' the cast of characters is just perfect, since you can't hate on anyone on, because they all have their own, believeable goals in mind. If you liked Orange (or Tsuki ga Kirei) you will fall in love with the other one for sure!
First of all, both are exceptional school romance anime with relatively slow paced story and character build up.
Both anime showcase the reality and crude side of the real world whereby hard-work might not be enough to catch your dream, however, the 'never give up' spirit might turn things around in the future.
Both anime come with dramas that might get emotional and bring back the feeling of when we first time fall in love.
If you like sweet romance stories with a bit of drama, you will like botb of those shows. Both are quite slow paced but satisfying.
Both main characters have different talents and dreams for the future, so the shows are not all about romance 24/7, but the characters feel realistic and not just existing for the sole purpose of falling in love.
I hope this recommendation helps and you'll check one out if you like the other.
Both protagonist are strangers, what I mean is, both don't know each other. Though in Sakurasou, both the protagonist wasn't that much shy on other people not like in Tsukigakirei. Both also have this kind of love triangle similar to Tsukigakirei. The only thing that I like Tsukigakirei has a better ending if I compare the two :)
-Slice of life school setting (Tsuki ga Kirei is focused on junior high, Isshuukan is more on high school)
-Same 'implied' romantic plot
-Both have an equal amount of comedy and drama
Toradora goes over similar events that happen in Tsuki ga Kirei. If you haven't watched Toradora for what ever reason and are looking for a romance similarly satisfying, Toradora is a good one to check out. If you watched Toradora and have been searching for an anime that is like it for quite some time, I really suggest Tsuki ga Kirei.
Both shows have a school romance setting. While Toradora deals with love between multiple people in high school, Tsuki ga Kirei deals with young middle school love between two awkward teens. It shows how difficult love can be for people new to it, just like the whole deal with Ryuugi and Taiga.
-Being a huge fan of the Romance genre, I can say that both these titles made my heart flutter with all the cute scenes of the couples.
-Their endings too, were partly similar (Can't go deeper without spoiling things :P)
-Both are Must-Watch titles for anyone into Romance <3
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.
If you are in love either with Tsuki ga Kirei or with Tamako Love Story you should watch the one you haven't seen!
If you are tired of those romantic-ecchi anime about high school students, these anime will give you another romantic perspective with kids which are still on middle school. Their love is sweet and inocent. You will absolutely forgot about those gags we are accustomed to watch repetitively on shoujos.
In fact, Tamako Market is much more of a comedy than a romance. If you want your romance you should watch Tamako Love Story too. Anyways, both are very similar on this aspect. You'll love both, I'm sure! read more
Both have a serious tone , both are about students
the main character also likes drawing, and wants to go to a school that his mom don't accepte just like the main characters of Tsuki ga kirei ,
Both have love triangle eventhough true tears is kind of a harem anime,
Both girl characters don't talk much , and they both love a sport that they are good at.
In the end you could say True Tears is a Tsuki ga kirei version for highschool
If you want more inocent and sweet love just like Shaoran and Sakura's you should absolutely watch Tsuki ga Kirei. Their childish romantic atmosphere will surely make you happy and wish your relationships were that way (OK, maybe that only happens to me... ).
My point is the fact htat you will find another beautiful and pure love story on Tsuki g aKirei, just like the one in CC Sakura.
Both are shows that'll REALLY make you just feel all jittery and happy from seeing such a cute couple blossom and go through all the things young, unexperienced teenagers go through, that we never got to experience but always fantasized about.
Focusing on the Dad character in both of these anime series only, and yes, I do mean Kuniharu Saiki for Saiki and Hiroshi Mizuno for Tsuki ga Kirei. Both of the Dads have the same voice actor and have the same decently malleable personality. On a general level, these Dads are roughly the same Dad-like characters, in a good way, of course.
Through ages of reminiscing your wonderful lives could lead onto a lot whole experience through enjoying the gaze of your own youth, Days maybe much time to tell us the new age or decay of romance must be told unfold about what lies within it's unique and very simple story
Both series revolve around a slow and awkward love story between the main male and female characters and how their relationships grow.
In Plastic Memories, the two main characters find themselves as coworkers, but the female only having a set amount of time remaining. The story follows how they become work partners, and how over time they develop romantic feelings for each other, even knowing the impending end looming for the female protagonist.
in Tsukigakirei, the two main characters are middle school students in the same class, and they take notice to each other. As the story carries on, they too develop feelings for each other, although in a more realistic setting and with more realistic interactions.
Where both series are similar is in how the romances are carried on. Both series have a more awkward relationship that slowly and sweetly become more heart warming. Both series' romances start building much stronger towards the end, where in both series, the female protagonist only has limited time left to be with the male character; PlaMemo's girl's lifespan is coming to an end while Tsuki ga Kirei's girl is moving away for high school. They both have a heartwarming and bittersweet ending, and are definitely a must watch for romance fans! read more
If you enjoyed the endearing aspects of gradual development of young love in Tsuki ga Kirei (awkwardness and all), Bokura wa Minna has a decent amount of it, so not to worry. The art and animation is fantastic as well (ignoring the comedic moments).
Both series' main characters meet kind of accidentally, but ends up falling in love with each other. The ending is somewhat similar as well. If you like Tsuki ga Kirei, you will also like And Natsu de Matteru.
Simple but sweet, realistic love stories without the fanservice and/or harem aspects much of the genre is plagued with. I know one is shoujo-ai and the other isn't, but if you're a fan of romance anime like I am, these are two shining examples of how to do it right, especially with characters that are younger and may not know how to navigate these situations just yet.
Now, on the surface this shows speak of very different themes: one about the reason of love itself and how it affects the human being, the other one about young love, the very first reaction that we, as humans, have with love
In fact they do, but why are they similar? Because they portray a realistic view of society, away from all the clichès that we are accustomed to, and they present us realistic characters that always act just like we would.
In short, if you want to see something with a little bit of realism in it,if you want to go away from the Lolis,the Tsunderes,Kuuderes excetera, watch these shows, you won't regret it read more
It follows the story of blossoming romance between young lovers. Tsuki ga Kirei focuses on a more innocent love and relationship, but the similarities can be found in that they both face trials in their romance. Additionally, the way of storytelling allows us to look into the minds of the characters and enjoy seeing the interactions as a result. The personalities of the main characters are quite different, but the realistic trials they face in establishing a romance at their young age make them both enjoyable to watch.
Boy meets girl, girl meets boy.
Girl: I thought he's that type of guy in school. I was wrong.
Boy: I never knew the other side of this girl.
Character awkwardness, shyness, development, background stories included!
Its pure romance.
Boy meets girl, girl meets boy.
They both get to know each other, and over some drama, some side stories,
they ended up dating and they both encourages each other,
what interesting is, the characters background stories, character development and how they feel towards each other. Lovey dovey scenes included!
Tsuki ga, as with Just Because!, has a lot of similarities with Koi to Uso. Not only it involves teenagers and their romancing struggles, the feeling they pass to the viewer is very comfortable and sometimes nostalgic. Since it describes middle schoolers the innocence of the characters is very well approached and almost touching. A very cute romance with no exaggerated comedy almost stupid characters and scenes observed in the majority of animes. Both focus on the drama of the romance.
Calm, nice and very cozy school romance dramas.
The creators of these two adorable shows crafted their characters and the environment in a way that is so believable and realistic. There's great attention to detail that surfaces in both the sound work and silent scenes. Dialogue is not the only driving force; they take full advantage of "show don't tell" techniques. If you enjoyed one of these mundane yet heartwarming stories, then I'd recommend you watch the other.
High School Romance played a big part in both of the anime and they(Couple) gradually get more attached to each other as the time pass.
There seems to be more 'Ups and Downs' in Suzuka and both protagonists from Suzuka focus more on sports compared to Tsuki ga Kirei but imo I find Tsuki ga Kirei has more adorable moments.
Both are really great anime so if you like either one of the anime, the other one will suite you perfectly.
Tsuki ga Kirei and R-15. Both have the following similarities:
- A girl and a boy, they feel attraction of each other, which in turn, have friends who feel something for them.
- Both boys have some talent, the boy is a writer and the girl is musician (R-15) / sports woman (TgK).
As we go through the chapters, we see how the protagonists get to know each other, and gradually show what they feel, despite creating misunderstandings.
accidentally have same event: starting point is the protagonists had fallen in love to main heroine in junior high school
Bakuman. and Tsuki ga Kirei has interesting show in romance story, even Bakuman. is more to manga serialization problems.
Both shows have a slow relationship buildup with great characterization and dialogue between the leads. If you liked Tsuki ga Kirei but wanted a dash of economics (instead of school) and older protagonists, try out Spice and Wolf.
I wonder what is love? There was a time when I thought it. At least love is valuable like jewel.
Even if their relation don't develop true love, their determined heart never change. Forever.
Both are literally beautiful shows. Once again, beautiful. Visuals are overwhelming quality.
Kotarou and Nanami fall in love with each Akane and Yuu. YagaKimi case isn't just love. It's complicated love.
They are similar mental state, socializing, and dialogues. Really lighthearted. At the same time, it feel so sad.
Because of it reveals fact in a certain episode. No more can be said. Please see for yourself.
Nevertheless, both have excellent plot twist. It seems to contradict, think positively.
Tsuki ga Kirei is pure love story. YagaKimi is women romance. Both are very similar tone and direction.
If you loved Tsuki ga Kirei's everything, and have a tolerance for Shoujo Ai genre, Yagakimi is exist for you.
As the Moon, So beautiful. You'll fascinated with them. And then, Bloom Into You. read more
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.)
