Beautiful artwork beautiful music THE FEELS!!! both are more oriented to slice of life and drama, with MC girls in search for something they either lost or don t have Enjoyable  
report Recommended by KuroHaruto
Both are stories about relationships and human connections with fantasy elements. Themes of change and time are strongly present in both. Both have very strong emotional impacts. Excellent music throughout, though Nagi no Asukara is certainly the strongest for this.

One-off self contained romance Similar bitter-sweet series feeling 
report Recommended by ImUnderCoverShhh
Very similar moods between these two. Slightly awkward characters trying to figure out their romantic feelings as well as their place in the world. Irozuku focuses much less on the romance (though it is still there to some degree) and more on deeper rooted emotional problems. Just Because! focuses more on post-high school worries and uncertainty of the future. They both have really good lighting and music.

- Time travel. - Girl, meets boy! - Generation-skipping. - Contemporary setting. - Low fantasy. Supernatural household. - Pretty visuals with lots of gloss and shininess, full of aqua, sky blue and green With more to come ...I think

Mahoutsukai no Yome and Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara have a similar vibe when watching both shows. They share a similar vibrant color palette and have a very whimsical way of putting great attention to detail to the background and foreground art in each scene. The setting in both shows are similar, a modern day society where magic is an accepted thing in society and mages live amongst normal people. If you're looking for a world that you can get absorbed into, I would recommend both shows.

Both MCs lead boring, uneventful, colorless lives and are given the chance of a lifetime to experience things they have never seen, felt and loved. In irozuku an introverted colorblind girl is sent back to the past and meets a group of people who help break her out of her shell along with a boy who's drawings allow her to see color. In ReLIFE a jobless 27-year-old man is given the chance to relive a high school life and meets a group of people along with a girl who changes his perspective on things and his outlook on life. Both shows have a fairly similar plot that is  read more

While it seems like the most obvious similarity is that both shows feature a photography club in school that is the backdrop for a romance, you can draw comparisons of the female leads and the side characters in both shows as well. Teresa (Tada-kun) and Hitomi (IRODUKU) are both entering an environment they are not used to, Teresa being from another country and Hitomi being from a different era. The side characters in both shows seem to have romantic interests inside the club as well, but with the other members.

Both anime are very similar on way of main characters dealing with their own problems and with problems from group of people sometimes the closest one to them. Both are also about young high school students that are experiencing first love, difficulities in friendship and a bit of family drama.

Magic and witches in the modern world - without battles or evil organizations, just pure everyday life enhanced by magic. Trying to grow and find happiness, and make others happy - with or without magic. That's what both series are about! Note that Flying Witch is a feel-good SOL, whereas Irozuku will tug your heartstrings. Nevertheless, if you enjoyed the overall themes of one of them, then you'll very likely enjoy the other as well.

Romantic school-age time travel 
report Recommended by liquidblueocean
Both Ano-Hana and Irozuku Sekai are similar in the following: - both have a bittersweet feeling throughout the anime - both protagonists do not belong in the time/place they are in - Menma being a ghost and Hitomi (Irozuku) being from the future - about friendship with a hint of romance - both animes ended similarly (no further spoilers!) - the main pairs had a special connection between them that no one else had - in Irozuku the protagonist is lacking something that makes her different (her lack of emotions and her inability to see colours) while in Ano-Hana the protagonst, Menma, is a ghost hence nobody except  read more

Both have: -Beautiful Art -About a love story -Overcoming their personal identity. -Overcoming there personal indemnity of there past. -Creating meaningful friendship along the way. -Creative POV of the main characters how they see the world <3 Overall a 86% correlation if I have to say ~ 
report Recommended by SeungMin
Both involve love, time travel, growth as individuals, and fireworks. Fireworks serve as a symbol for, among other things, life, light, and the strength to keep going. Irozuku is a longer series given that it's a TV series and gives a chance to get to know the characters in a slightly deeper sense than Uchiage Hanabi. While Uchiage Hanabi is more "magical realism" and there is an element of mystery to the plot that drives a lot of the conflict, Irozuku is very clear on the framing device being magic and instead focuses on the character growth specifically.

Both anime are done by the same team at PA works and have almost exactly the same art style and character design. Both are original anime and coming of age tales, though Irozuku looks at depression while Sayonara is a study of motherhood and coming to terms with grief.

The usual Time travel in order to meet someone that seemly defies the Einstein's Theory of Relativity.  
report Recommended by JiangHaoyi1979
Both have slices of life that dwell into Time Travel that seemly violates Einstein's Theory of Relativity and Newton's Law of Physics.  
report Recommended by JiangHaoyi1979
this is the first time i have written a recommendation so bear with me both are about witches and at some point they go back in time, majo no tabitabi is an adventure and light comedy mixed with episodes that will surprise you and about funny / sad situations in which she finds herself, while Irozuku Sekai no Ashita is about journey in which she learns to enjoy life. Also both have white / ash hair.

Main characters, type of animation, CG, overall feel, quality of the soundtrack. Both makes you feel calm and warm inside. 
report Recommended by F_Rainv
Same general themes of time travel and coming of age, with one being a movie and the other being a show. Both were made by "auteur" studios so if you like the feel of one, I think you'll definitely like the feel of the other.

When watching Blue Period, i feel the same feeling when watching The World in Color. Both of the main protagonist seek the meaning of a life through their color. It's beautiful. 
report Recommended by Midoriyaann
- Creative supernatural and magical concepts (including some which reminded me specifically of this particular film). - Similar concept of girl attempting to fit into a world different from their own - Beautiful artistry on par with many Miyazaki films

TBH these are like one of the very few shojo anime I enjoy

Both protagonists travel to the past for saving someone. Both anime have a beautiful artwork.  
report Recommended by Cold_Raw
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.

- Beautiful art, animation and so colorful - Someone from the future (Nerawareta Gakuen is a boy, Irozuku Sekai is a girl) - Magic involved - Drama, love, life - and more to go... if you have watched Nerawareta Gakuen, you must feel that they have the same vibe especially when the person from the future is actually related to someone in the past (as in family, connected) and it will be turn into drama 
report Recommended by Mikurira
-Both are original anime which have themes of artistry mixed in with beautiful magic imagery. They are also romantic series. 
report Recommended by alpha_shadow
These shows remind me of one another not only because they feature magic, but because they use magic as a symbol for the characters' inner beauty and strength. The characters leave their homes, become independent, find a mentor, develop friendships, help others and we see them grow from each experience. Without the fantastical aspects, these shows feature relatable and believable experiences of growing up.

- meeting past selves of old relatives - worlds of wonder and beauty waiting to be explored - worlds sort of give off similar vibes - deal with both mental issues from there pasts or experiences - both have main characters being female, kinda shoujo like - both involve drawings to portray similar narratives - both have amazing art styles  
report Recommended by Konatose
Although both shows diffferentiates on many levels, they both have themes of self-realisation, and expression, and the inclusion of the storybooks, with alot of symbolic allegories into them, gave both shows simillar vibes in the said moments. 
report Recommended by Tyrraell
Both of these shows are slow-paced slice of life rom-coms that rely heavily on their gorgeous production values and warm, comforting atmosphere, taking place in worlds in which everybody is the nicest, most welcoming person possible. If you're looking to re-capture that simple joy, these shows have you covered. 
report Recommended by AnimeBW
Both are coming of age stories done by P.A. Works utilizing the studio's signature artwork. However, Iroduku does a much better job at storytelling as it is what Glasslip should have been like, but ended up being a disaster due largely to a plot that was all over the place, a mistake that Iroduku avoids. So those who managed to get through Glasslip should watch Iroduku, but not the other way around.

A life changing disability. A journey through friendship and love. The story of a grand part of their life they have come to despise and must learn to love once more to move forward and enjoy life once more. Magic in Irozuku Music and piano in Your Lie in April.

In Ef it feels more prominent, but it's important to note that in Irozuku the characters' artistic aspirations and love for the art are used as an vehicle by which the main cast finds ways to self-reflect and express their feelings for themselves and the others. 
report Recommended by Tyrraell
They both use color and atmosphere to show the viewer what the world looks like through the eyes of a person with depression. Like how Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara uses black-and-white with muffled sounds to simulate how Hitomi's depression strips all joy and excitement from her life, 3-gatsu no Lion uses the sensation of being underwater to simulate how Rei's depression weighs down and constricts him. Finally, both anime show how human connection can break a depressed person's cycle of negative thinking and find worth in themselves and living.
