Nagi no Asukara, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso Recommendations
Both are really emotional anime they make you smile and cry, every one fight for the one who loves . but there friendship always in the way of there love ..
This recommendation wasn't made because both show strongly similar. Both show slightly different except for romance drama involving middle school student part. Their true charm is how beautiful they were made. Music portray how Shigatsu's characters emotion flowing while it narrated with words. While Nagi no Asukara use combination both of beautiful art and soundtracks.
A group of friends who have a love triangle/square. The art is absolutely gorgeous. I would watch just for the art. They are both very sparkly and have a very bright color palette.
I do not really know how both similar actually, but I just feel that both anime has that 'feels' to it.
Both centers a male protagonist who have 3 close friends (2 females and 1 male).
Similarities between the characters are like Manaka (NagiAsu) and Kaori (KimiUso), both are the 'closest' to the male protagonist (Hikari/Arima) and both have similar personality.
Then Chisaki (Nagi Asu) and Tsubaki (Kimi Uso) are both close with the male protagonist since little and have feelings for him (kinda).
Both animes also very calm and soothing, but funny and exciting as well.
Watch it, you will never
