This is absolute no brainer recommendation. If you watched Garden of Words and thought "man I wish this got a full series", this is the show for you. Both tackle age-gap romances and have beautiful visuals that feature a lot of rainy moods.

The recommendation for "Hige o Soru. Soshite Joshikousei o Hirou" to consider the anime "Koi wa Ameagari no You ni" seems a bit strange at first and maybe even at second glance. But the two series share the story of an encounter between a teenage girl who is attending or should attend high school and a full-grown man. In both anime, the focus is more on the characters and development. The two young women in particular have had their own way of dealing with a difficult fate or a stroke of fate. The age difference is thematized in both anime, but in "Koi wa ameagari"  read more

Joshikousei and adult man. Both theme are pretty clear and similar. The love with a younger girl.

Two 100% romantic anime. 0% comedy, and very little dramatic. If you want to enjoy watching an anime of pure love and feelings, here are two. Also in both animes the characters are more adult than usual in anime series.

Ristorante Paradiso is a Josei and Koi wa Ameagari no You ni is a Seinen, two series dedicated to appealing to older audiences. Both series feature a main female character who has an attraction to a much older gentleman. Plenty of romance and slice of life elements, complete with mature and realistic characters.

To sum it up Koi wa Ameagari is a like Blend S in reverse , the differences was Blend S was more on the comedic side while Koi wa Ameagari is more of a melancholic vibe with a cute and charming touch.

Two shows about characters dealing with a love considered taboo by wider society, and the conflict this arises in them. Art approach is also very similar between the shows, with each unafraid to use visual flourishes to aid the storytelling. If you like your romance filled with angst and longing, these shows will work for you.

They aren't similar in plot however they do have similar vibes and are really peaceful watches for a swelling heart.

I got a similar feeling while watching Koi wa Ameagari no You ni to when I watched Amaama to Inazuma. Both have a sort of student/sensei relationship and end up spending a large amount of time together and the show lets the viewer watch their relationship grow throughout the series. Koi wa Ameagari our main character actually has developed feelings for her manager, whereas in Amaama it's a platonic relationship. Each shows can be both lighthearted but also very serious at times. If you enjoyed watching a high school aged girl spend time with an older adult male and the activities that surround them I  read more

They both have similar vibes in my eyes, both being strongly about the sadness relationships bear. They are both deeper than they seem, and sometimes have questionable visuals, but still good.

Both series have moments of lightheartedness as well as more serious moments that keep you engaged. They both encourages never giving up on dreams, no matter how many obstacles life throws your way. Akira loves to run, but suffered a leg injury and Mr. Kondo loves to write but is afraid he'd disappoint his younger self. Mashiro, who struggles to take care of herself, is an aspiring mangaka and Sorata, who is extremely indecisive, wants to become a game designer.

Both series explore human emotion and how losing someone or something important can affect not only you but the people around you as well, almost like a domino effect. Narumi's girlfriend, Haruka ends up in a coma and Mitsuki gives up her love of swimming. Akira has to give up running after suffering from a leg injury and Mr. Kondo, her older boss, becomes her new main focus. Mr. Kondo loves to write but is afraid he'd disappoint his younger self.

This’ll sound like really dumb recommendation but the age gap romance thing is still present. Fine junjou romantica is a shounen ai but it explores the story of 4 couples, 3 of which have a big age gap. Biggest age difference is 17 years I think. It’s genuinely an adorable anime and it’s one where the people actually get together so I love it

similar vibes. peaceful, cute anime about two people navigating through their feelings.

Both MCs look the same and both have a reserved personality. 
report Recommended by menhera_027
Cute and chaotic romance between strong and somewhat overworked long haired person and clueless and kinda dump but very lovable short haired person.

Love is not just about looks and ages for both of them 
report Recommended by tanomu
-both age gap centered anime -both main characters are school girls going after an (dumb) older guy who at first doesn’t want them -both anime give vibes of an unusual romance  
report Recommended by Hiru_Napyeer
Female MCs deal with school life, friend problems, falling in love, and unfortunate events. 
report Recommended by jaykup
Both characters have some age gap. Age is a factor that comes up throughout the series, and the characters explore into each other's personal lives. While the pacing of Koi wa Ameagari no You ni is faster than Usagi Drop, it doesn't ruin their storyline. While not as subtle with their relationship, their partnership is wholesome.  
report Recommended by Anime_Critic
Both deal with old men that are somehow bonded to words/literature. Fune wo Amu is solely focused on that, while KoiAme shows it after a while. 
report Recommended by MaahHeim
Koi wa Ameagari is not about age gap romance. Its about keeping yourself faithful to your vocation and to yourself. Ping Pong is about that, but also about discovering your vocation by passing for trials until you reach ripeness.

They both talk about taboo themes in our society in a serious way with many points of view of how to they react to them . Also containing amazing art and sound. 
report Recommended by lkevsan
Both have very warm atmosphere and gorgeous OST. Both are about first love Fem protagonists are very lonely and socially awkward at first And in both shows one of the characters is reluctant to accept feelings at first 
report Recommended by Saijuro
The main characters of both animes love literature and from time to time discuss the meaning of the novels.

they both work in a restaurant they both have really nice art style they both fall in love at some point both was about the everyday life working in a restaurant

Two girls (Tachibana and Wakabayashi) with very similar personalities who are in love with an older man (Kondou and Hige) and work in the same place as him. And in both animes, this man does not perceive the feelings of the girl and for a time thinks, that in fact is the opposite. The difference is that Ojisan to Marshmallow is a short anime and is more focused on comedy. 
report Recommended by WinterFB
The aspect of liking someone who is or seems to be older than the other is a big similarity. However, one is more on drama and the other is more comedy. 
report Recommended by Kianeki18
Both have this kind of disability that plays a big role in the anime and with how the main girl develops. Both also have nice cinematography and ost. I really like both these animes as they have that light hearted feeling although the age gap in both animes are different they're both somehow similar. 
report Recommended by renaijun
Both stories are light romances with a similar interesting approach, where the romantic emotions of the couple serve as inspiration for them to pursue their life passions. In the case of Whispers of the Heart, the couple are 14 years old students and their passions are writing poetry and building violins. In After the Rain, the couple is made of a 17 years old student girl and a 45 years old worker, and their passions are running and writing literature.

Both are feel-good kind of slice of life/romance anime. Both of them have a very different appeal but you would enjoy watching one if you loved the other.
