Both Hello World and Kimi no Na wa, both anime are themed on different timelines and about time travel. Taki and Katagaki both try to save the girl they love. The element of romance in Kimi no Na Wa is no less interesting than in Hello World.

Glass, no Hana to Kowasu Sekai and Hello World are both anime set in an artificial world and tell the story of saving someone.
4. The Relative Worlds

They are in the 3rd grade of high school, and their relationship is so close that one of them even confesses his feelings. However, their relationship was troubled when Shin from the alternate world arrived.
Like Hello World, Ashita Sekai ga Owar u toshitemo is a 3D anime film. The two anime films also have a lot in common. There is a connection to an alternate world, and the plot is about changing destiny to be with the people they love. Both also carry the Sci-Fi theme.
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi focuses on Fujinuma Satoru, a young man who can manipulate time without realizing it; he always experiences this to prevent an incident. One day, he faces a complicated problem: someone kills his mother, and he is accused of being the perpetrator.

Like Hello World, Boku Dake ga Inai Machi also takes the theme of changing the future.
6. Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl
Six had passed since Sakuta Azusagawa accidentally met the bunny girl in the library. Sakuta is very happy because he has a relationship with Mai Sakurajima. However, their relationship quickly became strained after the arrival of Shouko Makinohara- his first girl Sakuta- grown up.
At the same time, little Shouko is in the hospital and has severe heart disease. Instantly all the plans that Sakura wanted to spend with Mai fell apart. Sakuta wanted to help little Shouko as much as possible but also wanted to keep his relationship with Mai going well. Plus, Shouko’s adult behavior towards her was a little weird.
Seishun Buta Yarou wa Yumemiru Shoujo no Yume Wo Minai and Hello World are both anime films that deal with traveling across timelines to save the life of someone they care about. Both also have a relatively complicated story beginning and invite us to think until we finally know the storyline.
7. Psychic School Wars
Spring at Kamakura Middle School has begun. There was the arrival of a new transfer student named Kyogoku Ryoichi. He has telepathic abilities and controls the minds of others. Kyogoku’s father gave him the task of using this power to take over the school.

Kyogoku begins to use his power to incite everyone. The school is almost entirely under Kyogoku’s control. However, one child is not affected, namely Seki Kenji.
Nerawareta Gakuen’s similarity to Hello World is that both anime tells about a boy who returns to save someone, has a time limit, and involves supernatural powers and Sci-Fi elements.
