To Heart 2 is a Japanese visual novel developed by Leaf. It is a sequel/spin-off series of sorts to To Heart; it is set in the same universe, albeit two years later with a completely new set of characters.

The story follows Takaaki Kouno's daily life in high school alongside his childhood friends Konomi Yuzuhara (who just graduated from middle school) and Tamaki Kousaka. The story follows the same lines as the original To Heart, where Konomi's feelings for the male lead blossom.

The series also has an adult Gaiden Game, To Heart 2: Another Days, that focuses on the secondary characters of the series.

A thirteen-episode Anime series adaptation produced by Oriental Light and Magic and directed by Norihiko Sudō aired in Japan between October 3, 2005 and January 2, 2006. It was subsequently followed by three OVAs in 2007, two more in 2008, another two in 2009, and yet another two in 2010.

For some strange reason, somebody made a CGI short featuring the characters, by the name of Funky Cat Maybe. It's basically a Zombie Apocalypse but with Puni Plush dancing Cat Girls instead.

More recently, Aquaplus (Leaf's partner that releases Family Friendly versions of the To Heart games to the consoles) developed and released an Eastern RPG adaptation, titled To Heart 2: Dungeon Travellers for the Play Station Portable, featuring all the girls up to Another Days in a fantasy setting (yes, even the Robot Maids are there too), which in turn was adapted into an OVA in early 2012. To Heart characters also appear in Leaf/Aquaplus' fighting game collaboration with Examu, Aquapazza.


This show provides examples of:

  Yuma: Where'd you pull that out of?

  • Harem Genre
  • Harem Nanny - In episode 11, Tamaki has shown she's quite knowledgeable about her Takaaki's activities in the female area, and quite capable of hunting all of them down for some tea, and thanking them for taking care of her Takaaki.
  • Heroes Want Redheads - Tamaki, if she's chosen
  • ~Hey, It's That Voice!~ - Aside from Jun Fukuyama's more famous role as Lelouch vi Britannia, a ton of the seiyuus here can be found in Hayate the Combat Butler. Case in point: Shizuka Ito as Tamaki Kousaka and Hinagiku Katsura, Hitomi Nabatame as Yuma Tonami and Yukiji Katsura, Rina Satou as Yuuki Kusakabe, Shiori Makimura, and her robot, Eight, Saki Nakajima as Karin Sasamori and Saki Kijima. And of course, that thinly veiled Watanuki vi Britannia Puppet Butler.
  • Hikikomori - Silfa
  • Hot Librarian - Manaka
  • Hot Shounen Mom - Haruka Yuzuhara, Konomi's mom.
    • There's even a route dedicated for her in Another Days!
  • Human Alien - Ruuko/Lucy
  • Ill Girl - Manaka's sister Ikuno. She gets better in Manaka's route in the Visual Novel though. The second OVA episode references this by merely casting her in it, as she was previously not mentioned at all in the anime.
    • "Getting better" above only means she's not hospitalized and healthy enough to go to school; she's still a wheelchair user in her all appearances.
  • Imagine Spot - Manaka provides her fans with plenty of imaginary intimate moments with Takaaki in the first adnext OVA.
  • Improbably-Female Cast - See the picture above.
  • I Want to Be a Real Man - Hilariously played with in Another Days - in Yocchi's route, she tries to get Takaaki and Konomi together by "training" Takaaki to be a "real man" (in her words, send him through the "boy's rite of passage"): first by letting him grope her breast (after which she beats him up for it), then getting him to flip her skirt. Of course, it backfires and he falls for Yocchi instead.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia - The first episode of the Another Days OVA.
    • Ridiculous yet very funny because the girls all except Tamaki try to rewrite Takaaki's memory for their own benefit. Hilarity Ensues.

 Manaka: "Takaaki-kun, you and I are lovers, and we're happy together."

Takaaki: "Lovers!?"

      • This one as well:

 Ruri: "Takaaki is every woman's enemy! You are a monstrous, perverted, serial rapist!"

Takaaki: "Perverted serial rapist!?"

  • Like Brother and Sister - Konomi and Takaaki
  • Meganekko - Charu.
    • Yuma in her route; apparently this is part of her her "real" personality.
  • No Romantic Resolution - The anime.
  • Parental Abandonment - Takaaki's parents are on a business trip for the entirety of the anime. Also, no one aside from Ilfa appears to live with Ruri and Sango.
  • Rescue Romance - More or less how Sango was introduced.
  • Robot Maid - Ilfa (HMX-17a), Milfa (HMX-17b), Silfa (HMX-17c)
  • Ship Tease - Besides the original episodes, every girl gets some with Takaaki in the OVAs. Manaka in particular seems to get more than the rest, though; Yuma probably comes second.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang - Manaka and Ikuno.
    • Also Sango and Ruri.
  • Starfish Language - Ruuko's first words to Takaaki were completely unintelligible, until she adjusted her translator by tapping her head.
    • In the game, she even speaks German (which Takaaki is not fluent in) in her first attempt at a human language after that first adjustment.
  • Status Quo Is God - Even after thirteen episodes and nine OVAs, Takaaki still hasn't picked a girl.
  • Student Council President - Sasara Kusugawa
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo - Tamaki Kousaka; in fact she's One Head Taller than just about everyone else.
  • Teen Genius - Sango, who is employed by Kurusugawa Electronics, can easily program robots to do her wishes. She even wrote Ilfa's OS.
  • Tenchi Solution - See Status Quo Is God above.
    • And in Another Days, Tama-nee loves Konomi-chan so much that she agreed to share Takaaki with her, not wanting to lose a little sister just to get her man. Aww...
  • The Ojou - Yuma's grandfather, who is somehow related to Kurusugawa Electronics, is supposed to let her inherit the family business.
  • This Trope Is Bleep - Harumi does it in a supermarket. Good thing for Takaaki no one heard it. Whatever she said.
  • Tsundere - Yuma Tonami, Ruri Himeyuri, and Silfa.
    • And later on, in AD Plus, Silfa.
  • Those Two Girls - Charu and Yocchi, Konomi's friends from junior high, in the original release. Subverted in Another Days as they become winnable this time.
  • Unlucky Everydude - Takaaki insists that he has problems dealing with girls, yet the premise of the show subverts this.
    • Lampshaded by Yuuji in the first episode of the Another Days OVA.

  Yuuji: "Even with his memory gone, he's always involved with girls somehow."
