Both involve clubs that are just starting out and finding new members. Both of them have comedy as well.

Both animes are centered around their astronomy clubs.

the relationship between the main characters in both anime are similar.. Mihoshi is like nodame is a push over.. while Saku and chiaki are having trouble dealing with her but in the same time they don't mind having the girl beside them.

The most apparent similarity is their focus on astronomy. Sora no Manimani explores the beauty of the night sky, while Twin Spica delves into the lure of space and space travel. Beyond that though, there is a gentle dignity to both series -- in the day-to-day life, troubles and challenges, interpersonal relationships, and romance. Energy comes from small, spunky girls who do not allow challenges to get in the way of their love for astronomy. Quietly supporting them are male childhood friends -- with a touch of sweet, understated romance.

Teenage boy just wants to fit in at highschool, has no intentions of standing out at all, but a very strange and rambunctious girl forces him to join her club. Slowly he begins to become more comfortable with hanging out with his weird new friends. Both are very funny anime as well.

Both main characters in both series seem similar. The males are more serious as the female leads are more not so serious. Both animes are comedy romance as well.

Both shows contain similar vibes, where you the viewer can relax and possibly discover a new hobby to do with outdoor activities. Very chill and very comfortable to watch shows.

Both animes show us the adventures of members of school clubs (Astronomy and Art) while some of them experience situations of romance. Similar characters and stories with good doses of comedy.

Both series contain a slice of life style theme with a group of friends in a group. Both series contain drama, comedy, romance, and a relaxed atmosphere that moves at relative pace. Additionally, both series' characters have stark personalities and are fun to see their interactions with their peers as the series progresses.

Similaraties: Both about Clubs and childhood friends. Both packed with fun times and romantic times. Saku = Kodaka Mihoshi = Yozora Dissimilarities: in boku wa tomodachi Kodaka don't know about yozora being his childhood friend, but in sora no mani mani he knew already.

Both series revolve around astronomy and stargazing, with similar interactions between the lead male and female (initially male is not a fan of the female, who is generally rather compassionate toward him). The settings, however, could not be more different

Both anime are soothing, fun to watch, have really good comedy, with slight romantic flavour. Both are about normal school life, with wide variety of quirky characters adding fun! At the end of episodes you are always left with a smile! Both the anime portray relationship between classmates, seniors and best friends. Like how well friends take care of each other without expecting anything in return and such. Both anime have a really great way of expressing these delicate sentiments, subtly but in depth at the same time. That's the best part about both these anime. On the surface all the characters in these anime are  read more

Are you looking for some relaxing SoL school romcom? These are perfect choices because they are about.... Your everday life . What makes them so similar is that they're both about some MC who joins a club where the creatos are older than the MC. They're also quite open about their love and the male upperclasman in both serie is kind of lifeless and different.

Both are slice of life shows that teach scientific topics in an interesting way. Sora no Manimani is centered around astronomy while Moyashimon is centered around microbiology and agriculture.

After many years, the male protagonist is reunited with his childhood friend, a small but extremely high-energy girl. He doesn't remember her very well or doesn't want to remember her because of all the crazy things she put him through. While the girl practically clings to him, all the boy wants to do is read books. There is a small level of romance between the two although the boy doesn't want to recognize it. Both are very funny shows.

Old childhood friends re-unite in high school and both are comedy romance animes. Main characters in both have hobbies they both enjoy. 
report Recommended by spineslayer
Both have to do with clubs and school setting. They have a comedy slice of life feel as well.

Old childhood friends re-unite after a long period of time and are both comedy romance. One is set in high school and the other one has college students. 
report Recommended by spineslayer
Both examine the progress of a club being set up with some new members. Comedy is similar and the character exploration is similar, although Sora no Manimani focuses more on the central characters than the whole cast.

Sometime we just want to watch something revolving about the same thing that anime we've just watched. And... They are Both about astronomy. ;) 
report Recommended by Aizewa
Both anime are about their astronomy clubs. And both are romance, school anime; although i think Sora is more slice of life.

A person joins a club which he/she is not really fit for, but the warm atmosphere makes things go for the better. 
report Recommended by Galatea
Both are school comedies with similar feel to them and you can find similar characters too. Sora is more concentrated on club activities and love triangle though. 
report Recommended by Rastan
hmm Sora no manimani is prety similar in comedy styles, i think, but the whole romance comedy made me remember it, soo i though i would just put it here. All in all, they are both funny

Simple stories that take place on the schoolground. No supernatural, no dramas, no ecchi. Plain as it seems to be but enjoyable indeed.
