Both series are about kids dealing with death.

Both mangas tell a tragic love story, they're very touching and both describe a coming of age of the main characters.

Both are really sad, short shoujo stories.

They share the same "deep love-story destined to die due to degenerative illness" theme. In particular Socrates in Love prefers show all the teenage feelings of timid and unexperienced students, Diamond Dust is more about social outcasts: a depressed pianist and an indie artist facing the problems of being unable to communicate to the world. They share the same "pathos" and similar extreme and desperate sentimental actions: going to Australia and "smuggling" the grandmother's ashes for the two students in love, completing and performing the song "Diamond Dust" for the two musicians. Tragic endings in both works, but quite fitting the idea of sentimental "Bildungsroman".

In both the stories lovers are separated by death. Both stories are moving and tear-jerkers but still bring out the message- Cherish life.

Similar art styles. Socrates in love is more dark, but underneath the pointless humor (Morita) Honey and Clover has an amzing depth to it as well.

Both deal with how the main character copes in a situation related to Cancer. SiL concentrates more on how a person copes after their loved one has been diagnosed with the disease, whilst DF concentrates how the "patient" deals with their diagnosis (learning some life lessons along the way)

Both are tragic romantic stories.

While reading it I found it similar to B.O.D.Y, not because of the story, because of the art. I think everyone who loves Socrates in Love will love B.O.D.Y.

Both stories deal with tragedies and love. Mucha Kucha Daisuki is more comedic/light hearted than Soctrates in love, and its also longer...but both share pretty similar plots. I don't want to spoil anything, but if you're a fan of drama/tragic love stories and liked one of these, you may like the other.

Both are Dramas which tell the story of how the main character comes to terms with losing someone they love (a girlfriend in SiL and a dog in EnW). Both are bittersweet tearjerkers.

Same problem...A story about loosing a dear friend and old love. Wasurerarenai is a sad story similar to Socrates in Love, there a both one-shot mangas, too. Both centers at the problem of loosing something very important, the memories, the hope and the will of living. There is a high chance that someone who loved one of those two mangas, will love the other too.
