Clannad, Bakemonogatari Recommendations
Though the world of the supernatural does not play as large of a role in Clannad (its sequel uses it more) as it does in Bakemonogatari, the essence of it is still there. Also, both male protagonists have profound desires to save any girls they meet that are in trouble. Koyomi and Tomoya have similar personality types, both being cynical yet caring.
Bakemonogatari reminded me of a mix of Clannad and Petite Cossete.
Like Clannad, Bakemono has a spiritual side as well as having humor even in the most serious of scenes. Both had wonderful animation, though they both definitely have they're own styles, they're both beautifully animated in they're own right.
Both male protagonist remind me of each other, funny, serious, and surrounded by women of all ages. On that note, Bakemono is far more explicit than Clannad which I find to be an unnecessary addition to an otherwise nice anime.
Overall, if Bakemono had taken a few more cues from Clannad, it would have been much better. But
IF you liked Clannad, the first which which isnt as sad :s , then you most likely will like Bakemonogatari, it has just a scratch of action which is good, but essentially some episodes are about nothing but talking. Whats funny is that its actually interesting and not boring, funny as well which is something that Clannad has, although i doubt you will be crying in this one. Even so, this is one of those underrated but goddamn good anime's.
Two stories that mix love, drama, comedy and fantasy and turn it into:
- The carefree guy who knows a girl who is in trouble. Together they will know their weaknesses and strengths.
- Every girl that approaches the boy, has some problem, which has changed his life remarkably. Where each one of them will search together with the boy how to solve it.
These animes are filled with countless good moments, where when you believe that nothing happens, you will be surprised when everything explodes in your face, feelings that each character surrounds when trying to achieve the happiness they desire.
