There isn't exactly an abundance of subtle animes. Most of them are very loud and with little to no subtext. Characters, I've noticed, are prone to holding speeches about absolutely everything they think and feel. Spice and Wolf is the only other series I've seen apart from this where I felt that everything wasn't spelled out for you, and so, while they aren't very much alike story-wise, they are similarily quiet but effectful.
