- Both yuri based theme.
- Both have one character that support other love and the one that keep falling in love with someone.
- Male character is a rare thing in both anime as the female character dominate this anime.
- Both mc are pretty similar in personality but their character design are swapped. In Aoi Hana the long hair girl is weak willed and the one being supported while in Sasameki Koto the long hair one is the strong and the one that supported the other.
They are both yuri series whose main characters eventually fall in love with each other or realize they have feeling for one another. Both anime are short even though their manga has enough material for another season.
Sasameki Koto and Aoi Hana are super alike. If you enjoyed one I asure you, you will enjoy the other, I swear. Both are really soft yuri animes. Sasameki Koto has a bit of fanservice, but it's not gross at all, in general is as soft as Aoi Hana.
Also both protagonists (Fumi and Sumi) not only look similar in appearance, but they also have one thing in common: they both fall in love with their best friend (Fumi has Akira, Sumi has Kazama), who is quite oblivious about their friend's feelings.
And lastly, both endings lack of a certain something (not that it ruins the anime though) so you might as well read both manga when you are finished with the anime. read more
Aside from romance between girls. Aoi Hana and Sasameki Koto has similar vibe when it comes to story telling. Both are realistic and does not jump on some unexpected scenes such as having 'fan-service' etc. Both story are pure and really sweet.
Both Sasameki Koto and Aoi Hana are good Shoujo Ai series. For people who watched only one of them, maybe you will like the other one stated too ^^
1. Both anime gives a gentle feeling and shows out the pureness in Yuri anime.
2. Both anime shows how is it like to fall in love with someone.
3. Both main lead, Fumi Manjoume (Aoi Hana) and Sumika Murasame (Sasameki Koto) are similar in a way that both girls are reserved.
4. Both Sasameki Koto and Aoi Hana go more for the slice-of-life type of story rather than yuri fanservice and ecchi (You won't find any ecchi-ness in both anime), which is really nice to see as it really shows how gentle and pure the main relationship in both anime are.  read more
Both similar in the fact that they have yuri elements in it. They don't go overboard in the way strawberry panic does 8[ Both of these anime are funny and cute. Sasameki Koto may be a little more related to a slice of life.
both are great shoujo ai anime, and both are about friendship and unrequited love. The characters are great, and it delves deep into each individual. Both plots are super duper, and if you've ever been in love, these two anime are easy to relate to :D
You wont even need a recommendation to know it has alot in common, +... this is by my opinion "the best anime of all time".
its yuri, its shoujo ai, its romance; its very similiar, but there is one differnece...
...Strawberry Panic is the best anime of all time, and even if they are good,...
...sasameki and kashimashi are not.
if this was 10outta10 (10/10) then deathnote, soa, another, guilty crown and all the other big shots, they would all end up at just only 7/10.
wanna watch something you will cry, laugh, get depressed, get emotionally involved with, and that you just wish you never saw because it was to good for your own good? then watch Strawberry panic and you will understand the esence of what it means to love something to call a masterpiece. read more
Another shoujo-ai anime from AIC.
While the basic themes of both anime are different, they both share the common note of girls love and the art styles are incredibly similar.
Also, fans of Candy Boy will want to watch for references to it in Sasameki Koto.
In both anime, the characters start from simply being just ordinary friends, then come to a point of misunderstanding which separates them and/or links them together in one way or another. In both series, there's a sense that the main story characters do love each other but won't express it until either one of them expresses ones love towards the other, or builds it up over time. In both anime, there is a competition going on between at least three characters, which are all about who they really love or if they even do so.
There are, though, two things that you might find disturbing...
1. In Kashimashi, there is a very clear expression that suggests that girl love is wrong, until very late in the series when that feeling is totally wiped off Earth. Unfortunately, this feeling did sppear at one moment in Sasameki Koto as well.
2. Many viewers might find the fact that the girls, and especially the ones that the main character, Kashimashi, is in love with, talk about her as if she were a guy, even if she used to be one. (She did turn into a girl; read the anime description. What I just stated was not a spoiler.)
If you want to watch something fun, serious, and really boring (which is not necessarily a bad thing)... watch Sasameki Koto. read more
Comedy around high school girls. Though Sasameki koto has some yuri & romance parts leading to slightly heavy moments, the series is 80% funny and highly enjoyable.
Both series got good pace, arrangement and scripts.
Both series are relatively slow paced high school love stories. The plot of both shows revolve around two friends coming to develop feelings for the other.
The main characters also share some similarity in their desire to be cute or girly, rather than the appearance they give off. Kimi ni Todoke's Sawako being creepy and unapproachable, while Sasameki Koto's Sumika is cool and masculine.
Although Taishou Yakyuu Musume is about girls during the Taisho period, the two series are very similar in their humor. Both have moe elements and cute girls without being disrespectful to women; in fact, Sasameki Koto realistically portrays girls having lesbian relationships without outright pandering to men, and Taisho depicts girls breaking out of the stereotypes of the time to do what they want to (play baseball) and prove themselves. Taisho Yakyuu Musume also has some slight yuri elements to it although Sasameki Koto is obviously yuri. Both follow the girls' and their friends as they go through daily life and try to accomplish their goals. read more
Being strong on one and only genre is good, it make a strong positioning for the show. However when the show go for more than one tone, it's worth watching even more, as long as one genre doesn't spoil the others.
This two shows are probably one of the leading high-school romance comedy of its time. Both shows has a potential of a good comedy, while also maintain high standard of drama and romantic content.
The episode can be a pure comedy, pure drama, or mixed, you don't know what to expect for each episode, but that's the charm of these multi-genres romantic comedy.
Girls love school life series that focuses on the budding romance between a pair of female friends. There isn't a whole lot of F/F romance stories out there, so if that's something you're looking for, go to either of these!
Sasameki Koto has some shoujo-ai elements and is slightly more angsty at times, while Aria is lighter fare, but at heart, both series revolve around a group of girls making friends, having new encounters, and simply living life. Recommended for slice-of-life fans who enjoy a sprinkle of comedy and a dash of funny faces.
Hourou Musuko and Sasameki Koto both deal with gender role issues and how friendships are affected in these situations. They approach the issue from different angles and have a different art style (well not much has an art style quite like Hourou Musuko), but overall they have a very similar feel.
Among a group of friends, there is a pair of friends where one girl has unvoiced feelings for her friend that her friend is completely unaware of. Acchi Kocchi has Tsumiki and Io (het), and Sasameki Koto has Sumika and Ushio (shoujo-ai).
Both series show the intimacy of female friendship and romance in the school days, but in different ways. Marimite is like a HQ portrait in a catholic school while Sasameki Koto is more like an everyday photo. Sasameki koto is around 70% comedy 30% romance.
