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
They are both incredible, heart-rending deconstructions of the incest subgenre of anime.
They vary in the degrees of deconstruction, as Koi Kaze goes for a premodernist, straightforward approach, while Oreimo is a subtle, neoclassic take on the romance between siblings.
Prepare to cry when watching both shows.
Ahh, is there anything nicer than true love between true siblings? No, and that's the truth.
Both series feature incest as a major theme. It could be argued that the way they tackle this theme is maybe just a little different, but hey let's not get caught up on semantics. Fans of one will certainly find much to like in the other.
Koi Kaze and OreImo both delve the issue of sibling love. It is one that is a socially rejected concept and at the same time glorified by ethics in anime journalism.
If I were to compare the two, it'd be using my expansive knowledge of porn, particularly between two-dimensional characters. There are many doujins involving tags such as, but not limited to, "lolicon", "incest", "schoolgirl". Although they are projected through the same media, the direction of the works can vary, into even the "netorare" tag. Likewise, Koi Kaze and OreImo are both under the same umbrella, yet mechanically different. Koi Kaze is reminiscent for La Nouvelle Vague, while OreImo is avant-garde in its own way, conforming to the social standards of our time.
However, I digress. Essentially, they're both tales of the life between a brother and sister, with the flames of passion propelling them. read more
these anime both about building romantic relationship between a old brother and his sister ( incest ) however ore immoto kawaii.. is funny and more comedy and koi kaze is more drama oriented. i liked them both recommend ore immoto kawaii more
Do you enjoy stories about romance between siblings? Do you enjoy stories about tragic yet beautiful love blooming between two very different people? If yes, then you will enjoy Koi Kaze. The story is dramatic and focuses primarily on the relationship between estranged siblings. If you enjoyed the romantic and incest aspect of Oreimo, you will enjoy Koi Kaze.
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.
Transexuality and incest; two topics that, whenever used in anime, tend to be "humoristically" depicted. In Koi Kaze and Wandering Son, however, the subjects are explored in incredibly serious and mature manners, turning both shows into must-sees for those who've grown tired of the kind of shows previously mentioned.
Another good drama with a delicate topic, Hourou Musuko deals with gender identity. Similar to Koi Kaze in the sense that it takes a serious approach where other anime use comedy. Different topics but a more similar genre, I think it fits the mood more than other generic incest anime.
Both series adopt a very mature mentality when dealing with socially taboo topics and situations, remarkably conveying the hardships and challenges that the characters in each face as expectations and social norms step in to confront the concepts in a vivid and disturbingly real manner. They are both very character driven stories and carry a degree of emotional impact that is not forced but softly portrayed and carefully presented.
Both handle complicated social concepts is a very mature manner. They tell a concrete story, but leave the verdict of whether the actions characters take are ultimately right or wrong up to the viewer.
Outside of the expressive minimalist art style the two share, what struck me the most about both of these is the use of silence in sound design. Both of these shows have a lot of scenes in which there's sparse music and dialogue, creating this personal, uncomfortable, and awkward feeling that greatly works to the shows' advantage.
Both shows delve into some aspects of taboo or down right forbidden culture. Hourou musuko is much more light-hearted admittedly but there is still tense drama and emotion wrought throughout the scenes. Character motivations are incredibly unique and difficult to understand but thats what make's these show a must watch!
Both deal with the issue of incest between siblings.
Both anime show the struggles of brother and sister as they realize their budding feelings for each other and how they realize the consequences of their actions but ultimately they succumbed to their feelings.
Both have incest themes to drive the story, but they are both very different shows. Koi Kaze deals with two people who meet each other, and then find out they're related, whereas Yosua no Sora focuses on siblings who were raised together and developed a romantic relationship. Yosuga no Sora has a lot less respect cause of TONS of fanservice, but I thought it was still very good. If you liked Koi Kaze and the themes of conflicting love, you'll probably enjoy the watch.
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, the Boku wa manga does have numerous graphic sex scenes. read more
Koi Kaze and Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru are an obvious match. Not only do they both deal with the same tricky and potentially controversially the subject matter, that of incest, as they approach it in a sober, thoughtful manner that pulls at the heartstrings. Both are realistic and do not use fanservice, these anime are all about the emotional reaction of these characters who find themselves in a compromising situation.
I strongly urge fans of Boku Wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru 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 hard, but refreshing, watch. If you want to see the incest taboo explored to its full depth with masterful, mature lens, watch Koi Kaze. read more
Both are EXTREMELY depressing but potent romance series. They each have very human characters and stories, and have factors too.
Kimi's circumstance would probably happen more frequently in reality. It also is much more bitter than sweet.
Koi Kaze's theme is much more serious and is handled that much more seriously. However, it is a bit easier to watch, and ends much, much better.
Both series contain the theme of love that is presented in a more mature and realistic way than typical romance series. In other words, both series are serious love stories that are not the typical puppy crush or love at first sight types.
Both series has many emotional moments but also some comedy moments as the main protagonist deals with the feelings he has for the main female character.
Both series are sober and built on drama as well as guilt that presents romance in a mature way.
The old school art and serious vibe immediately link the two Masterpieces. Both main characters, Satou and Koshiro share similar habits and inner turmoil. This ranges from smoking, badgered clothing and unkempt/unshaven appearance, and accumulating garbage and tissues around their residence, as well as the psychological ramifications of their predicament and the societal acceptance, or lack thereof. Both share comparable female's in Misaki and Nanoko, who are fairly younger and intrude in the MC's life as love interests out of the blue, but with a predetermined goal in mind. Both MC have reservations from pursuing their love interests, albeit for different reasons, yet both divulge into guilty fantasising and getting off in misery to the tempational vixens, which they know are beyond their reach. Both MC share an Older Acquaintance , Hitomi "Senpai" and Chidori respectively, who get in the way of their love interest. All these characters dance around the edges of committing suicide, and in nearly identical settings to boot. There are endless similarities between the 2 Giants, and if you liked one you WILL like the other. read more
Both sets of protagonists, or couples rather, are socially inept, naive, aimless wanderers with disjointed families. In addition both use their relationships to straighten themselves out and reintegrate into society. While in NHK our protagonist are already outcasts and fully detached from society, in Koi Kaze you witness that transformation happen first hand. Both these shows are excellent examples of the social standard.
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).
At first, I couldn't figure out why Koi Kaze (KK) and Usagi Drop (UD) felt so similar in my mind. I gave it some thought and here's what I came up with.
Both KK and UD have very strong (and cute) female main characters. Rin (UD) is very well behaved for being 6 and Nanoka (KK) is extremely emotionally mature for being 16. This creates an interesting atmosphere where their interactions with the other characters are a bit socially skewed. I read the UD manga afterwards and didn't find the ending that surprising at all.
In many ways, Rin and Nanoka are "perfect" family members. Rin is always so helpful, making breakfast and Nanoka is super supportive of her brother. They are both very sweet characters.
Music and artwork are very well done in both. The emotional moments are incredibly well done in terms of artwork and music in both.
The biggest difference between UD and KK is the portrayal of men. Daikichi (UD) is a role model single father. On the other hand, in KK, most of the men (Koshiro, Zenzo, Odagiri) have serious personal issues. UD generally has a positive atmosphere where there is always an impeding feeling of sadness in KK. If this doesn't put you off too much, you should give the other a try.
If you enjoy the emotional moments and like Rin or Nanoka, you will probably enjoy the other. read more
Has a similar tone and pacing. Both develop fantastic relationships between two long lost relatives with a significant age difference, obviously one is of a more innocent nature than the other. The moments of downtime, when the characters are having a relaxed, yet meaningful moment with each other, also stands out as a similarity. Both shows truly embody the value of the simple moments in life.
They both also have a very similar soundtrack and both are fantastic.
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 of the rollercoaster drama.  read more
Koi Kaze and After the Rain both deal with a relationship that can be seen as taboo.
After the rain deals with a high school girl who falls in love with her noticeably older manager at work. Koi Kaze also deals with this age difference, but also adds a blood relationship between the couple to create drama.
After the Rain focuses on the female protagonist, Tachibana, while Koi Kaze focuses on the male protagonist, Koshiro.
While After the Rain is a more lighthearted and comfy show, Koi Kaze delves into the taboo aspects of the relationship and approaches a more realistic and dramatic take.
Everything begins as a simple affection between brothers, there are differences, but those differences were the ones that made them sin. In these two animes we see how they relate, knowing their strengths and weaknesses, and wanting more than brothers. Always with the doubt of what is right and in the end letting oneself be led by those errors that bring you happiness.
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 deal with the taboo of relationships. They get into the mental state of the character very deep. They are also both masterpieces in the to be even able to create these emotions to words. Watch them if you don't mind taboo topics.
Both of these anime explore the psychology and struggles of people with romantic feelings that are socially unacceptable. These definitely deal with controversial subjects, so these aren't for everyone, but if these forbidden relationships interest you, these are pretty good anime to explore them.
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 hard, but refreshing, watch. If you want to see the incest taboo explored to its full depth with masterful, mature lens, watch Koi Kaze. read more
Both are WOEFULLY and CRIMINALLY underrated GEMS that deal with siblings who live together after not knowing each other for over a decade. Masterful and realistic romance anime that share the sibling sub genre.
Main difference is the male MC, where Koi Kaze has a very realistic and flawed lead Koshiro, and Onegai Twins has a stellar and truly beautiful lead in Maiku that all other romance/harem anime male leads should envy.
Both are MUST WATCH worthy, and are leaps and bounds better than their low 7 ratings and are actually some of the BEST anime for their genre ever created.
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.
Koi Kaze is like the Intellectual and Elite version of Ore no Imouto, which it certainly influenced. However Chidori is a vastly superior version of Manami, and in Koi Kaze the main characters actually have guts to stand by their feelings even without having a firm plan to solve the inevitable problems. The realistic and dramatic portrayal is much in line with reality, as opposed to the Harem Esque and more mainstream OreImo. While Koi isn't as pleasing as OreImo visually (unless you are fond of the Unparalleled NHK), it tackles the Elephant in the room exponentially better.
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 emotional, it's almost scary. read more
I feel Koi Kaze is extremely underrated on the site, largely due to the widespread ignorance over the depth of the themes covered in this anime. While Koi Kaze is undoubtedly better in every aspect, for those looking for a lighter, less honest anime involving forbidden romance may want to turn to True Tears. While I wouldn't normally recommend True Tears, it is an entertaining preemptive before watching more mature anime.
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 you're into the whole life is hard thing these animes are recommended to you. 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 excetera, watch these shows, you won't regret it read more
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
~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.
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.
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.
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.
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 final comment is that both shows are absolutely amazing. I got choked up watching both, and found myself talking out loud to the characters as they went through their difficult relationships. I really think if you like one, then you will like the other. 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.
