these shows deal with incest. if you liked one, watch the other, you won't regret it senpai both have mature older brothers and cute little sisters. these shows will both make you cry. oreimo is more neorealist while koi kaze draws inspiration from mono no aware and modernist artists. also similar music watch it senpai

Both of the series have an understated, muted art style, although Hourou Musuko animation is superior. (This is unsurprising considering Koi Kaze was released in 2004.) The real similarity doesn't lie in the similar art style though. No, instead both series grapple with difficult societal concepts in a mature way without resorting to tasteless humour of it, although the incest in Koi Kaze is 'more taboo' than the gender difficulties in Hourou Musuko. If you like one, you'll likely like the other.

Both have incest themes and how it is not accepted by society. Koi Kaze is done better

Two anime that deal with incest without glorifying it, or attempting to pander to those with a fetish for such things. People are often put off Koi Kaze due to the age gap between the older brother and much younger sister. Boku wa would probably appeal more to those people because the siblings are twins. In both stories the leads try to fight off their romantic, lustful feelings for their sisters; ultimately failing to do so. And in both it's made crystal clear how society views incest and the hardships brothers and sisters in love must face. Neither title is smutty... though, going on what I've read,  read more

Though way opposite story lines, both involve very deep romantic relationships.

A young girl suddenly appers and changes the main hero's life forever. Both anime's have a great psychological aspect in them. 
report Recommended by Johnny_FBI
Similar art style, and the plot revolves around an odd familial relationship between a young girl and an older male in the family. In Usagi Drop, the little girl Rin is the thirty-year-old Daikichi's aunt, being his grandfather's illegitimate child. In Koi Kaze, we have a teenage girl and her late-twenty-something older brother (though PLEASE NOTE that KK is a sibling incest romance, albeit one that is sweetly and gently done).

Age gap romance anime well made. If you think Koi wa Ameagari is doing it well, then you'll sure think the same about Koi Kaze - and the same thing the other way around. Both deal with age gap love in a mature way, making sure to present the problems age gap couples may face without fetishizing or being silly about it. Koi Kaze deals with the theme in a more hardcore way, since there's not only the age gap taboo, but also incest. Both are very melancholic, but Koi wa Ameagari no you ni is lighter since there's a slight comedy in the middle  read more

Deal with a brother / sister incest relationship.  
report Recommended by Jellokun
Kuzu no Honkai and Koi Kaze both explore forbidden love in a very dramatic way, and flesh out the conflicting emotions that those kinds of relationships can bring about. I'd also recommend KimiNozo and Aku no Hana to the masochists who are into Kuzu no Honkai, as I think those shows can elicit a similar sense of emotional desperation.

Both have an extreme theme about their respective romances. Both have a romance that is socially and morally unacceptable. Jikan has a more humorous take on it. Koi Kaze is more serious and emotional.

I strongly urge fans of Onegai Twins to watch Koi Kaze. Both shows deal with the topic of incest, specifically a romantic love between brother and sister, but Koi Kaze actually brings up legitimate issues that could arise if siblings decided to become a couple. There's no peer approval, no understanding family members, no marriage, no 'love-finds-a-way', only a strong rejection from society. Additionally, Koi Kaze analyzes realistically the psychological profile of a brother that falls in love with their sister (and vice-versa) without sugar-coating it; the heavy mental pitfalls that befall the pair - a mixture of self-loathing and never-ending anxiety - are a  read more

In both series, the main protagonist has a particular relationship with his little sister. The protagonists struggle with their feelings throughout the series, as it is no easy topic. Although Koi Kaze has more of a mature, drama-filled atmosphere, both anime are thought-provoking and have the courage to approach one of the modern world's remaining taboos in their own way. These two series are definitely recommended to all those who are not afraid or wish to learn more about incest in modern society.

Both feature characters who have conflicting, often painful, thoughts about their love lives. The romances themselves also feature hardships that would otherwise break someone into pieces if not properly taken care of. Here however, they're used to grow into people necessary to achieve what they want, even if it could be more trouble than it's worth. True Tears uses tears and the reason for crying as some sort of idealogy. Multiple main characters have some cross to bear. Romances are handled with appropiate writing. Koi Kaze is an incest story, using that to create one of the best romance stories I've ever seen. Writing is so tight and  read more

In both titles, the main characters feel something for each other and, despite the difference in age, express their love explicitly, the difference is that in Koi Kaze the "issue" is treated in a mature way, meanwhile in Oshare Kozou wa Hanamaru is treated like any other shoujo.

School Days is extremely similar to this anime I'd be surprised if no one notices. They both deal with serious issues and they both send that message out very clearly. Both stories start out very nicely and then takes a huge twist, some of you might think it's gross while others (like myself) will think they're masterpieces. For Koi Kaze I didn't give it a 10/10 because it wasn't an anime I'd recommend to any normal person they'd probably think it would be boring and give up about 3 episodes in while School Days you'd always be on the edge of your seat but if  read more

Both these series are each one of the very few who an inversion of the genre, or more specifically the cliches they're assumed to represent but turn them on their heads. They're an unrelenting, merciless, psychoanalysis that debunks the stereotypes, fantasies, and expectations set by the industry, and the audience themselves. It's a wake up call to the viewer, a revelation. The archetypes and fan service are pulled kicking and screaming out of escapism and thrown into a realistic environment, and left to die a magnificent death.

Both deal with "forbidden" love on the surface but are much more than than that. Both are deep and intricate psychological studies about realistically portrayed people on a journey of self discovery through the "lens" of the affections they have with each other. Both are very subtle introspective shows with strong direction. Both share the same slightly muted color palette.

Now, on the surface this shows speak of very different themes: one about the reason of love itself and how it affects the human being, the other one about young love, the very first reaction that we, as humans, have with love In fact they do, but why are they similar? Because they portray a realistic view of society, away from all the clichès that we are accustomed to, and they present us realistic characters that always act just like we would. In short, if you want to see something with a little bit of realism in it,if you want to go away from the Lolis,the Tsunderes,Kuuderes  read more

-koi kaze anime, imouto hentai -younger sister falls in love with older brother -both take their sister shopping 
report Recommended by Dronoclus
Although Koi Kaze focuses on incest, both have a very similar atmosphere, despite the vast differences of the characters. Once it starts picking up, the story is headed towards a downward spiral of depressing and heavy moods. Both bring powerful, heavy, and realistic emotions into their respective plots. These are no generic shounen, ecchi, nor shoujo romance.

Kuro to Kin no Akanai Kagi and Koi Kaze have in common: ~love story between brother and sister ~jelousy/drama/conflicts ~sexual acts ~both are mature and should not be watched by people under 17 years While Kuro to Kin no Akanai Kagi is adapted in 2 OVA's of 29min(the story might go too fast or have plot holes), Koi Kaze's story is explored wider, in 13 episodes (24min). Difference is that Kuro to Kin no Akanai Kagi is a reverse harem and Koi Kaze is seinen.

if you love romance between a brother and a sister then you should watch both of these anime.

The Similarity Here Is an Older Man Younger Female Theme... Taboo, With The Differences Being Kure-nai Is More about Protecting the Young Girl As She Develops Feelings For the Older Boy, Whilst Koi Kaze Looks At Brother And Sister Together But With A Serious relationship And The Anime Centres Around That. Both Gd Animes If Your Into Drama And Taboo Themes. 
report Recommended by Charsly
I recommend Angel Sanctuary and Koi Kaze because they both center around unlikely love interests. Both animes feature a serious look at incestual relationships between a brother and sister and how they deal with their feelings, society, and the repercussions of such a relationship. If you're looking for an atypical love overcoming all odds type of story, these two animes are a good place to start. Besides the taboo love themes though, the main difference between the two is that Angel Sanctuary is heavily fantasy based, while Koi Kaze is a set as a reality drama.

If you watch either of these anime, you will be subject to a perfect mixture of hot incest and soul-crushing suffering for the characters involved. Both are highly recommended for those seeking a brother-sister incest fix. 
report Recommended by Rosa_FOEtida
Both dealing with an incest theme (Da Capo to a lesser extent). They're both cute, and serious at times (Although Koi Kaze is almost always very serious). It's hard to explain, but I highly recommend Da Capo to anyone who liked Koi Kaze. As for Da Capo fans, Koi Kaze is [i]true[/i] incest (you know what I mean if you watched Da Capo), but if you think you can handle Koi Kaze, definetly give it a shot.

I didn't think I'd find a link between Lamune and Koi Kaze, but here it stands. Asatte no Houkou shares the same silent authenticity that Koi Kaze possesses. This subtle communication by intimation, with characters who are at the same time simple and obscured. On the surface, a story about a girl who switches ages with a grown woman doesn't sound all that interesting, and it could go wrong in so many places . . . just like Koi Kaze could have gone wrong. But Asatte no Houkou has a similar level of craftsmanship as Koi Kaze, and that makes all the difference.

Some viewers -- and reviewers -- wanted a more serious treatment of the yuri incest angle, and Koi Kaze at least does this with incest. It's a serious drama between a younger sister and older brother, so watch out for what you're wishing for. 
report Recommended by ced1106
We can see how both series treat love and sex topics to develop the character's relationships. Even though Koi Kaze's plot is way more mature and deep then Bokura ga Ita, both tell the story from a mature point of view, including the difficulties of being in a relationship with someone a lot more older than you. Although they also glisten the sweet points of being in love. They show love at it's fullest with all kinds of problems. Koi Kaze will blow your mind. It's a love story with mature content (I'm not talking about sex scenes or nudity) that'll teach lots of things about impossible relationship.

I found Koi Kaze and Aoi Hana to be similar in that they both present a romance that may be considered taboo in a very gripping, real, serious, and tasteful manner. Koi Kaze deals with an incestuous relationship across a large age gap, and Aoi Hana presents yuri relationship between teenagers. Neither show contains any fanservice, and both have practically no humor. They share a similar tone, and both touch on the real social ramifications of being involved in a non-standard love. The shows are also both paced similarly with the story spread evenly across the series - little episodic storytelling. My  read more

Both involve a theme of forbidden romances, or the want to protect one from the pain love can cause. While ef is more abstract in conveying deeper themes than the brutal honesty of Koi Kaze, both have a deep impact.
