Both Clannad and Ano Hana are good dramas featuring the development of friendship and a bit of supernatural events.

The main difference between thoso two is that Clannad has a lot more of funny scenes and jokes, while Ano Hana is on the cute side and deeply focused on its long drama.

If you want a soft drama, Clannad is your call. But if you really want the tears to flow, Ano Hana is the choice. They are two sides of the same coin.

Both the series are awesome slice of life which can make your cry. In both the series, the main protagonist is a delinquent who has to help a moe girl. The interactions they have with other characters form the rest of story. Although both play out a bit differently, if you like one, you should check the other out

Clannad's Fuko (first) arc reminds me of AnoHana. Meiko and Fuko's personalities are very similar and they start being forgotten, one by one. However, the male lead tries his best to remember the female lead with the help of his friends. Both are extreme tearjerkers.

They focus on love, friendship and growing up while being at the same time extremly cute and very sad.
The male leads share a similar attitude with Jinta (AnoHana) being a Hikikomori and Tomoya just seeing life as dull and boring and not believing in himself or a future.
The most obvious similarity in my opinion appears between the first Arc in Clannad and AnoHana as a whole. They share a kind of "ghost" theme, a girl that is very similar and the theme of forgetting somebody and granting a person's wish. Honestly, the similarity in plot is striking.
However while Clannad tries to break   read more

Both animes deal with a ghost girl who has a wish they want to be fulfilled. They're also both very dramatic and sad at times. Nonetheless, both shows are excellent series in their own right. Highly recommended for people who love dramas!

Clannad and Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai don't have similar names, but they are similar. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai made me cry so much that I thought my eyes started bleeding, while Clannad was so sad that my heart stopped at a couple moments during the story because of how targic the scenes were. It didn't matter that Clannad started as a game because even though games are worse than anime, it tugged on my heart strings so hard that I thought I had a heart attack. These anime are packed with   read more

These two beautifully animated anime both give out a similar feeling. They're super-sad anime about high schoolers and they have themes of moving on past a dark past.

Both are EXTREMELY sad and are major tear jerkers. Both have a sad but happy story to tell. Both main male characters are people you could call "delinquents" that go on a metaphorical journey with the ones they care for.

-Both series focus on friendship and romance and have tear-jerking stories. Both contain jealously and envy which make good drama. Both have a girl who's a spirit. Also, both need another season in my opinion (but they probably won't have one... ;~;).

for the start of clannad when the story was centered around fuko it is very similar to anohana as it is about the ghost of a young girl who can only be seen by a select amount of people. Both have excellent story lines and can easilly make you shed a few tears.

High School slice of life featuring individual problems of the characters and how friendship can help to solve it. In the process you will enjoy the drama and the jokes together with a little of supernatural activity.
