Air, Kobato. Recommendations
The main girl and boy from both anime have the same vibe. Especially since Kobato and Misuzu are always tripping and main boys always being tough with them.
Both are very cute Anime
* Both have these serious and sad moments
* Despite the main girl being so clumsy anime doesn't get any funnier
* Both guys are at least first cold towards the girls
* Both girls are like dreamers and you even could imagine that they came from another world
* Were touching anime
* Air is more unpredictible and you cannot understand this anime to the fullest
* Defenitely more mistery in Air
* Kobato has a more pleasant ending and overall is easier to watch.
The parallels between Kobato & AIR were striking, both deal with a female protagonist trapped in a death/rebirth cycle and a male protagonist who intervenes in the situation to help offer resolution. The major difference being the resolution of each, as one chooses a tragic pathos-laden ending and the other offers a more uplifting plot turn in it's epilogue.
