Toradora!, Angel Beats! Recommendations
Start of like a comedy and increasingly develop intense drama.
Both are adolescent stories with youths going for their life goal, or new life.
Both shows revolves around slapstick humor and cheap drama to entertain the viewer.
Definately not the same story line but they're both comedic in the beginning and once it gets towards the end, they both get pretty sad and/or dramtic.
Both of these shows have tsundere leads, though it takes Yuri longer to soften. There's laughter along the way, adorable moments, and moments when it looks like everything will fall apart. Still no matter how hard Toradora! tries to convince you it's only funny or Angel Beats! that it's only serious, there's a gooey center in each of these shows that left me with a smile. :)
Angel Beats is similar to Toradora! because they are both classified as romance animes that we all want to see more of. They are also similar because the two main characters in each anime start out as somewhat enemies but come to see that they want the same thing and end up falling for each other in the end.
