If you likedKoe no Katachi
...then you might likeKimi no Na wa.
Both Kimi no Na wa and Koe no Katachi are romantic films featuring young people who are on the cusp of adulthood. They are both emotionally moving with beautiful artwork and animation. Koe no Katachi doesn't have the same supernatural element that comes with Kimi no Na wa, but it has a similar impact. However, while Koe no Katachi is appropriate for adolescent viewers, it does deal with some severe bullying and darker themes that are absent in Kimi no Na wa, so if that is something that is difficult for you, you may want to avoid this film.
I personally cannot help but be reminded of the other movie when thinking about one of them. Perhaps it has something to do with both films releasing within the same season and me watching both of them within the same week. Anyhow, if you're into the bittersweet genre and crave romance that involves profoundly heart-wrenching moments, then both of these (+/- 2-hours) anime films are worth seeing!

After watching Kimi no Na Wa, I proceed to watch Koe no Katachi. I was like "Wow. They're actually somewhat similar in comparison.". Heartwarming, yet subtle, focusing on our main hero and heroine. One about deafness and other switching bodies. I think its "trouble communicating others with a disadvantage and you really have to know a person to understand their struggles" sort of thing.

Not similar in the sense of storyline, but a sort of similar style. Both deeply moving. Both involve two main characters and their journeys of understanding themselves and those around them.
Both movies are about a tragic love story. Other people besides the main 2 characters the romance centers around, are needed to help bring about the happy ending. They both have high quality animation and art. I personally prefer Your Name( Kimi no na wa) a lot more and give it a 9/10, but Koe no Katachi is still a good movie and earns a 7/10.

Both are simply the best movie of their particular years. Both are Oscar worthy. Both share the main theme of high school romance. Kimi no Nawa is more fantasy-like while Koe no Katachi is more grounded in reality.

Both character is interest.So,girl difference of school or city or village the characters in pairs are different from the other anime.Whereas the voice of language is so polite and well mannered backsound a the soundtrack tt's just the soundtrack manage also very interesting though very remarkable.But that,the emotion of sadness, loneliness, separation, different and so on
If you liked Kimi no Na wa, the chances are you will enjoy Koe no Katachi, another emotion provoking and engaging film.
Drama and lots of feels, definitely for you if you like tear-jerking anime movie.
If you're looking for another movie with jaw-dropping animation, this is the one. Both also deal with similar themes of miscommunication.
every goods at the question slice of life! ( inclused i like every the "romance" of koe no katachi, missed the kiss ;3 + 0k )

both are very beautiful films with great art styles, they get emotional in a similar way
They're both incredibly well written and stylized movies that will leave you wanting more. They both have very lovable main characters and such well conveyed emotions that you're left feeling a sense of dread that your life will never be as heart-wrenching as these movies. The love stories they tell are beautiful, hauntingly so, and so perfect overall. I quite enjoyed both movies
They are both movies on touching yet complex relationships and youth. Both center on the interactions of two main characters and how their ideas and morals evolve over time. Both have a twist towards the end that shocks viewers but resolves the major issues in the end.

These two are similar because they both express a relationship between a boy and a girl that isn't explicitly romantic, but still portray love and support that is really sweet and sad at times. The animation is similar in the sense they are both very high quality.
They're both beautiful stories with much to offer. Two of my favourite movies of all time for sure! Emotional and tear jerking, I would recommend to everyone of all ages.
Although the themes of both are widely different they both touch the audience's heart. Your Name and A Silent Voice, both are a romance anime with great art style and story. While Your Name focus has a more lighter and supernatural theme, which tells the story of a young boy and a girl who tries to get used to their new "body-swap" way of living, until things take a turn later on. On the other hand, A Silent Voice tells the story of a young deaf girl and a boy who had been a bully in his younger age. They both are full of heart read more

Similarities: -Both anime involves a high school life. -Both anime can make you cry. -Both anime's main protagonists may/may have feelings with each other. Differences: -Kimi no Na wa is somewhat supernatural, in a way that their souls is being switched to one another while Koe no Katachi they are not. -Kimi no Na wa's main protagonists are very separate and far from each other, only their connection and communication with each other is writing something while in Koe no Katachi, the main protagonists are nearby and somewhat close. -Koe no Katachi features the plot about bullying and redemption, guilt and repentance of the MC's actions in their childhood while in Kimi read more

Basically its love story too, in both movies there is kinda barrier between the two main characters that are supposed to fall in love with each other, but even tho they have to manage to overcome a lot of problems to be together and happy , they can do it. The animation style is similar too in my opinion and its really good artwork.

Both movies happen in a school setting, and have amazing stories and visuals. Unlike kimi no na wa, there is no supernatural stuff happening, but overall the characters and story itself are better.
Similar story structure, except for the supernatural element. Purely from opinion here, but even though the story structure of Kimi no Na wa isn't as solid as Koe no Katachi, it is able to convey something that you can relate more to and easily understand, in comparison to the many hidden meanings and social problems presented in Koe no Katachi.

Oh well. All I can say is they are a masterpieces for anime drama. Altough they have very different in visuals, the development of their circumstance are same especially in romance and daily life. That's how I feel. I highly recommend you because they can make you comfortable in the last part.
Both movies are set in a school setting, and both movies have intense emotional moments.

I want to recommend you two anime films at once - Koe no katachi & Kimi no na wa. They are different, but these two films are simply masterpieces, both are simply the best films of their time! Both are very touching, interesting to watch, I really liked these two films, I love them! I liked Koe no katachi more, because Koe no katachi is more based on reality, and kimi no na wa is more about fantasy, that's my taste :) Nevertheless, these two films are simply masterpieces, they are definitely worth watching, I am sure you will love them very much! Recommend, good luck: D

I 100% Recommend this if your in to a emotional, romance, and adventure/journey kinda movie.
Although these don't share a similar plot, they're both beautifully done love stories that go hand in hand with the development of the two main characters growing close.

if you enjoyed Koe no Katachi, you should definitely watch Kimi no Na wa. the reason why is because they both have a unique plot, relatable characters, some sad but also heartwarming scenes as well.

Similarities: High school setting Both shows are in the romance genre Beautiful artwork Emotional
Both are movies with slice-of-life slow-paced conversations, with romance between a girl and a boy, and with something unusual as an extra. They have a very similar feel. Kimi no na wa contains a supernatural twist. Koe no katachi is realistic, however the girl here is deaf, and the boy happens to be a bully.

These were the first anime movies which I watched (not casually). But yeah I think they both are amazing and pretty similar. Btw I cried watching both of them.
Both follow a tragic mild romance between two characters, and both are sure to make you cry. Both anime's have unexpected twists within them, and are both beautifully put together.
Great movies and they both have unique stories. I recommend to watch at least one of these.
Both the movies share the theme of high school romance. They are not similar in the storyline, but are similar in the art style

"A Silent Voice" and "Your Name" are beautiful, emotional animated films with incredible stories. Be prepared to laugh and to cry all over again if you've seen one and want to watch the other! While the stories are quite different from each other, the main factors that make each film great are common between the two. They each tell great stories, deliver powerful messages and emphasize the importance of communication (albeit in very different ways).
-Best seller movies -Main character are high school students -Good endings -Great story line

Both movies tell us the stories of two protagonists in each one, and first we must say that they are romance movies which are the best you can find in the romance genre, and as I said, the similarity of these movies which have an incredible animation each movie and a wonderful story, if you feel lonely watch these movies so you will feel more alone :) , and if it was a bad description but I just have to say that you have to see them yes or yes

They both revolve around a main character who is bored and has had enough of their mundane life, when they meet people who change them. I highly recommend both of these anime to beginners as they are short movies and are easy to watch as new anime watchers may have difficulty watching a longer series.
