Anohana is a dramatic, intense and emotional train ride about overcoming childhood trauma.
Erased is similar, with a science fiction twist with more of a mystery element.
Both of them have a main character who regrets a certain thing that happened in their childhood involving a girl, and they both try to "fix" it.
Both of them are dramatic, thrilling, psychological and emotional.
AnoHana and Erased have brilliant directing and production, they have the same director, stunning visuals, detailed backgrounds and some hidden stuff in their op and ed, and they're both made by A-1 pictures.
Both of them involve revolving around the childhood of the MC, and a little girl/childhood friend.
Both are quite emotional and touching~
Both have phenomenal soundtracks and great visuals, along with superb narration and directing. Both have really good OPs and EDs as well.
Both of these anime involve childhood friendships, death in a small group of young kids, and supernatural elements such as time travel or a ghost. both are extremely emotional and touching.
>Both involve little kids and their relationship
>Both are really dramatic
- Death. Dealing with the deaths. Aftermaths of deaths.
- A group of childhood friends. In Erased, the friends are mostly seen in in their childhood-form whereas in AnoHana it switched between childhood memories and the current highschoolers.
- Male MC who is more or less a loner at the start solving the puzzles/finding closure.
- Emotionally rich works with lots of drama.
Honestly I feel the need to reccomend this and Steins;Gate together. If There were an anime with the story of Steins;Gate, and the characters of Anohana, then ERASED is it. If you like ERASED, you will love these two.
Both are series that explore the past and the results of a traumatic childhood event. Animation is very similar and while watching the series it often reminded me of Ano Hana. Characters in Boku Dake ga Inai Machi are much more fleshed out in my opinion.
The story, the characters and even the opening of Ano Hana is similar to Boku Dake. Besides they are both very engaging and dramatized.
+ Both are series that explore the past and the results of a traumatic childhood

+ Both of these anime are emotional...really...
+ Both have amazing visuals/ost's...
+ Both are made by A-1 Pictures / both has similar genres as well...
- (just Jintan from AnoHana is so damn annoying, unlike Satoru)
The main protagonist have a supernatural based issue helping them with a situation involving a childhood friend who was killed. Boku Dake is more of a thriller/mystery show while AnoHana is more of a emotional piece. Both however are well directed and have beautiful animation. Definitely would recommend both to watch!
In both series an introverted Main Character is forced to confront major events from his childhood in order to make a better future for himself. The main difference is that in Ano Hana, Jinta must overcome his grief at losing a dear friend in Menma in order to rebuild his own life, whereas Satoru goes directly back in time to stop the death of a girl in his class named Kayo Hinazuki.
Both have great drama story and plot. These anime stories revolve around someone that isn't actually part of their time and is living in another time, either future or past. I highly recommend AnoHana to those who liked ERASED and vice versa because of their great story, drama and especially their tear-jerking plot.
Both theses animes will hit you the feels if you want that then I suggest a watch.
-I got the same feeling when watching both of these shows.
-Both are about a young girl that died in the past.
Its really similar pace wise yet it is more on the thriller side of things.
Both include little kids as the main character, one that had passed away before and is trying to fix it. They are pretty short and have an emotional ending.
