Very similar character interaction, personalities, and way of finding a new thing to do together as newfound friends.
As a big fan of K-ON!, I can vouch that Sora yori has a very similar feeling and vibe. If you liked one, you'll surely like the other. Both give strong character chemistry, delivering them in similar ways.
Very similar in one of the central themes: how friendships makes us better persons. Character interactions and humor are very similar as well. Yorimoi is more dramatic and a little faster paced in its character development, since K-On is ~40 episodes long and the girls have less dramatic issues to resolve there, though when the feels hit in K-On they hit almost as hard as in Yorimoi.
All in all, Yorimoi is a more adventurous and dramatic version of K-On, or, K-On is a more slice-of-life and laid back version of Yorimoi. People who loved either of them will definitely like the other, if not love it all the same. read more
The characters are pretty much copied and pasted. Tall shy girl with black hair. Happy go lucky girl that wants to do something with her youth/high school years, also with brown hair. Rich girl who just wants to experience a normal life and have friends. Energetic girl who hates boring things and behaves like a child.
Obviously my statements here are pretty vague but once you think about it you can't "unthink" it. Especially if you watched k-on first.
Not saying it's a bad thing by any means cause if you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other. (I did)
K-ON is about high school girls coming together to form a Light Music Club.
Sora yori mo Tooi Basho is about high school girls trying to go to Antarctica.
Both shows have similar type of humor and there is a lot of shared traits between girls' personalities.
If you liked one of them you will probably like the other one as well.
Slice of life show focused largely on character interaction/relationships where four high-school girls set off on an adventure to Antarctica.
Characters have personalities similar to K-On and the humor is similar as well.
Anime where high school girls go on adventures.
-Yurucamp is more lighthearted and funny, and it focuses on camping and adventures within Japan (especially in the prefectures near Mount Fuji). Also it has more of a focus on cooking.
-Yorimoi, however, is more serious and dramatic as it involves high school girls risking their lives trying to reach Antarctica.
The Winter 2018 season was blessed with two anime that revolve around the theme of going outside. While 'Sora yori mo Tooi Basho' focuses on the thrill of traveling towards the unknown in the company of good friends; 'Yuru Camp' highlights the beauty of simple things in life and nature. Needless to say both show's main casts are a bunch of cuties!
Both shows involve an all-girl cast going on their own respective adventures (much larger scale in Sora Yori) and primarily focus on the characters' interactions with one another. Both shows are also considered to be heartwarming in their respective rights
Cute high school girls doing outdoor activities and creating bonds of friendship along the journey, they are also educative, Sora Yori for the Antarctica and Yuru Camp for camping.
Yuru Camp is more centered on camping trips, and Sora Yori is much more adventurous and contains more mature problems.
It’s not about „Cute girls doing cute things” formula. It’s not just about high schoolers traveling here and there. It’s mainly about dreams coming true, fulfilling your passions and being free in such a restrictive world. Nadeshiko and Tamaki are similar characters. They are usually happy and enthusiastic. And they will surely keep making your face smile and your heart warm until the very end.
And again, another anime, where schoolgirls decided to go travelling somewhere. A lot of cute girls and also, in both anime, there are beautiful backgrounds. Animation is not bad, but sometimes there are errors in the animation.
Both Made In Abyss and A Place Further Than the Universe feature young, middle to high school age children and their love for the great beyond. Shirase and Riko are both traveling to harsh lands to find their mothers and make friends and allies along the way. Made In Abyss has a dark tone, violence and some truly heart wrenching moments while A Place Further Than the Universe is lighthearted, more like a Slice of Life show like K-ON. However, if you are captivated by unfamiliar, harsh landscapes and exploring the unknown then you will love both of these shows.
Typically follows the same format with kids embarking on an adventure to a difficult place with the goal of reuniting with one of the protagonist's love one. The protagonists in both shows experienced being underestimated and challenged before they are able to set out on their journey.
Both shows exude a theme of overcoming odds and never giving up on one's dream thus delivering a feeling of inspiration and freedom. If you were captivated by the atmosphere and curiosity of exploring the vast unknown by one of these shows, then chances are you'd probably like the other. Be wary though, that Made in Abyss is darker and heavy whereas Sora Yori is lighthearted. read more
In every episode, the feeling of emptiness grows bigger since in both animes the MC travels beyond "possible" seeking for her mother. Adventure, friendship and relationships, memories of a recent past...
The animation is flawless, and it has the ability to move the viewer's kokoro :)
Both have characters that adventure into unfamiliar worlds while facing obstacles on the way.
The art style is also somewhat similar, as the character designs are not stereotypical as you would see in most anime.
Made in Abyss and A Place Further Than the Universe both follow the story of a young girl leaving home to find her mother, whom she believes to be missing, but whom everyone else believes is dead. Both journeys have the odds stacked against them, but where APFTTU focuses more on character relationships and the intimacy between friends, Made in Abyss focuses on exploration and discovering one's unknown past.
The two shows are based on people achieving "impossible" things - going to space and Antartica. Portrayed are the hopes, difficulties and self-doubts which are encountered every step of the way. Focus is placed on the importance of having people who support you, and who you support in turn.
Both shows are grounded in reality (though Space Brothers is a lot more realistic), with well-written characters who avoid common anime tropes and archetypes. The music and production values for both is great as well! They enhance emotional scenes superbly.
Would highly recommend both shows. Very motivating and feel-good.
Both shows present a cast of lovable characters working hard to make their dreams of going where few have gone before a reality. Both shows feel optimistic, but Space Brothers is much more realistic than A Place Farther Than The Universe. Both shows are great for anyone looking for an uplifting and encouraging watch.
Similarly inspiring tale that tells you to strive for your dreams, and that nothing is impossible. Characters in both shows are not cardboard cutouts, but well developed and nuanced enough to feel real. And most of all, both shows have similar charm and a wonderful sense of humor that pervades everything.
Both shows make you feel so moon (If you know what I mean).
A place further than the Universe is a small those of what you experience in the 99 episodes of Space Brothers.
The stories are similar in the way that the cast is trying to fulfill a dream or escaping from the monotony of life (Getting the most out their lives will summarize it).
The characters are different in the way that one are 16-year-old high school girls and the other are 30+ years old adults. But both are amazing and feel so real. The most important part of both shows is their characters. And boy oh boy, they are the best.
Finally, the enjoyment I feel with both shows is 100/10. Every episode is packed with emotions. However, as I said, A place further than the universe is only 13 episodes and it goes straight to the point. Space brothers also goes straight to the point but takes it time to get there. read more
Both series are about regular people trying to accomplish what at first seem like impossible goals.
They both contain a lot of light-hearted moments and a sharp sense of humor, yet they don't shy away from addressing heavier emotions and obstacles in a realistic fashion.
But where these two series are the most similar, is in their being about watching incredibly endearing characters shooting for just as incredible dreams, and taking the audience along every step of their journeys.
If you liked either of these series, you are very likely to enjoy the other as well.
Same initial setting, character interactions, and personalty traits. Both casts of characters try to achieve the "impossible" and reach that goal together.
In Love Live Sunshine, it's to save their school and win an Idol Competition that has gradually been difficult.
In Sora yori, they work hard to achieve a goal of making a journey to Antarctica.
If you love strong character chemistry that have similar ways of delivering it. Watch them both.
Character interaction and motivation, and expressiveness of the story of Love Live Sunshine are really similar with Sora yori mo tooi basho. If you like Yorimoi, I strongly recommend you to watch Love Live Sunshine and vice versa.
This work really reminds me of Angel Beats!'s spirit. Although the plot has nothing to do, the kind of humour is quite similar (crazy, but not absurd). The characters are very charismatic and they have their own little trouble. Also, once in a while, this piece offers you some sad and dramatic moments.
Both shows feature almost completely female casts who fight against all odds to achieve their dream. Gunbuster's lead character, Noriko, has the same types of goals and ambitions as the girls in A Place Further Than the Universe. Rather than going to Antarctica, however, Noriko is training to be a mecha pilot in space.
Gunbuster deals with more adult themes, but the two shows seem very spiritually connected.
Both have the MC exploring the world
Both have beautiful art
Both have the MC wanting to achieve something
Both have amazing supporting characters
Conclusion: if you like the feel of well concluded story combined with awesome art, this is the anime for you.
Both anime have cute girl.. some similar interesting and funny plot.. and both anime talk about girls chasing their dream.. and some can't decide what they want to be.. they enjoy doing things they like and accomplish something together. The touching scene are very similar as well
I feel like one thing that Madhouse took from Hunter X Hunter is that the story isn't about the destination but the journey. Because that principale shows in Sora yori mo Tooi Basho and it shows really well.
You like cute girls? You like it when cute girls are finding themselves and working hard to pursue their dreams in the spirit of youth? Then you will enjoy both of these series.
On top of the similar themes, both series also feature a female dominant cast with adorable character designs and animation, and beautiful photo-realistic backgrounds set in a real-world environment.
Done by the same animation studio and while that doesn't really mean much the two anime still share a lot of other common factors, such as the slice of life atmosphere and the theme about challenging yourself by following your dreams even when they seem impossible to others.
not similar in art style
or even music
the only thing that i see is similar with is that both of them are slice-of-life shows involving similar themes of self-discovery and self-challenge
witch is it for me something rare to see in an anime's in this time
Both are about girls finding their own ways of coping with the death of a parent. Both give you room to appreciate the small beautiful things in life.
Sorayori is more melancholic and less fluffy (mono no aware).
Tamayura ~hitotose~ has a coherent philosophy of kindness at the heart of it which had a big impact on my life. While Sorayori tackles the feeling of feeling lost in life I don't think that it presents a (simple) philosophy as impactful as that which Tamayura ~hitotose~ radiates in every fiber of its existence. A fellow once tweeted the following:
"I think trying to avoid social media for some week was good. I did end up going back once or so and got really down by all the shouting.
Don't get me wrong here. I love being able to connect with everyone and even felt a bit lonely not doing so...
... but ending up seeing a lot of negativity and shouting in general when I popped back kinda stressed me out a lot.
I guess I'm slowly starting to realize that while I may dislike things, I'd much rather say how much I like other. If that makes sense?
Or maybe this makes me sound like an anime character. Not sure."
To which I replied with a promotional picture of Tamayura.
"because it sounds like you watched Tamayura (aka my favourite series) while you were gone and absorbed the atmosphere/views!"
Turns out they did. read more
-A group of girls who are highly motivated and strive to accomplish their dreams
-Entertaining primarily due to character interactions (both comedic and dramatic)
-Characters are consistently well-animated and move in ways that emphasize their personality traits
To put it simply, both are show which tells the journey to achieve dream / ambition of main charas and how they overcome the problems that prevent they to achieve what they want (Moritaka and Takagi a.k.a Ashirogi Muto in Bakuman. and the four Girls in YoriMoi)
Both have great drama, good comedies, Realistic Main Characters, and the storyline that become more interesting the more u watch it
If you like this type of show, i'm sure you'll love both show
I'm quite puzzled that everyone is giving just default "cute" slices in recommendations.
Unlike all previous seasons this one doesn't feature a lot of cuteness and mountains, it features more actual slice of life and some character development as well as development of interactions between characters - which is what it makes probably the closest series to Sora Yori mo Tooi Basho.
Tonally very similar shows. There are goofs, gaffs, dramas and tears. Ultimately they are both optimistic. Sakura has more focused on romance and on the themes of purpose whereas yorimoi is more on friendship and breaking out of your shell.
The main casts of Sakura Quest and Yorimoi are similar in that they are young women who meet and quickly bond by working together and overcoming hardships. But these shows are more than "cute girls doing cute things" - they inspire an appreciation for everyday life and a desire to try new things. Kimari and Yoshino in particular both yearn to do something meaningful with their lives, and gain a new perspective through making new friends and having new experiences.
