Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai., Koe no Katachi Recommendations
Group of friends torn apart by some event that happens in their childhood.
Both story are focus around the female lead that was unintentionally responsible for these events and follows the characters in their journey to fixing the relationship of the group
Koe no Katachi and AnoHana share similar character traits and senarios. Each series revolves around a group of 'friends' who have cut ties since childhood and brings them together again. These two series also have similar main characters, male lead with a serious disconnect from the real world and a tragic female lead. You get a similar feeling while watching both these series, they're very emotional and dramatic. If you have seen one I would highly recommend checking out the other for a similar story and emotional expierence.
I got very strong AnoHana vibes when watching Koe no Katachi. Both shows deal with a group of childhood friends who become distant after some incidents in the past, and how they restore their friendship when they meet again in the future.
It's a tear-jerking story about group of friends falling apart.
KnK and AnoHana work under the similar backdrop of a melodramatic story about a group of people's childhoods and how their guilt and hidden emotions against each other have caused life-changing scenarios for all of them—and how their coming to terms with their past allows them to move on a new chapter in their lives.
Both tell the stories of teenagers/young adults in the aftermath of a pivotal event from their childhood. The stories center around the characters trying to deal with the past in different ways; both gave me crippling depression and I cried a lot
Watching Koe no Katachi, I couldn't help but notice the remarkable similarities to Anohana. The stories revolve around characters initially as young children when an incident breaks their fragile realities tearing friendships and livelihoods alike apart at the seams. Further, they have a similar time skip from elementary to high school to explore how the characters changed overtime and how the past has affected them. In the end, both are about the perils of life and growing up. There are consequences for every action and life isn't nearly as simple as it was when you were a child. Communication might appear to be a simple
