'Teen Romantic Comedy Gone Wrong', or whatever typically long-winded light novel jibberish 'Yahari Ore' translates into shows all the signs of being Boku Friendship DONE RIGHT. As another user noted with their recommendation, Boku Friendship gradually turns into something of a full-on ecchi harem fest. Unlike Yahari, Boku wa started out as purely lighthearted rom-com fluff--causing later developments that expand on previously 1D comic relief characters to be awkward & its lead's turn towards a more... emo stance coming across unnaturally. Yahari one-upped this by presenting its characters as humans with relatable social difficulties from the get-go whilst still retaining sharp, witty dialogue.
Instead of, say, a blonde Japanese guy everyone assumes is a thug without talking to him & a blonde American-tit'd #1 school idol that refers to herself as a Goddess and has men kneeling before her at will, Yahari presents a dysfunctional lead trio, consisting of: a misanthrope lead pushed away from social contact by rejection, a beautiful girl well aware that her physical beauty causes others problems & an average 'TRYING TO FIT IN' girl--her attempts to climb the social ladder being illustrated nicely in ep2.
While it's true that Yahari still leans more on the side of fantasy than reality with its 1x loner guy x2 beautiful girls in an empty club premise, the set-up/presentation/illustration of social woes is executed much better than in most other similar works. Paint me impressed!
'Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru' and 'Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai' shared a sisterly bond where minds are alike. The feeling of being treated as an outcast without friends while struggling to get accepted back into society is daunting. However in the midst of such hopelessness, the heart of a person is what matters the most and that is what the main characters from their respective series have shown. In these series, clubs are formed as a sign of 'hope' and with it, strangers became friends for life.
In terms of the core differences, ''Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai' focuses on a male character in a more comedic way where the people around him don't necessarily hate him but they don't want to know him either.'Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru' centers around a male character who acts as a sacrificial lamb to ensure the flower blooms for others. The lack of care on how he is judged from the outside world puts him in an easier position to take risks that others usually wouldn't accept and one can only wonder how much pain a person can take.
These shows will open your eyes to the problems faced in daily society and you might even learn a thing or two whilst being intrigued by the character interactions. Putting aside the well executed humor which serves as the icing on a huge cake, romances are easily noticeable between several individuals and it's refreshing to see neither show going down the harem path but instead sticking to their roots. Will a fairytale happily ever after ending be on the cards? you just have to see for yourself.
Similar premises, socially-challenged high school students form a club all about helping others overcome their difficulties. Both shows employ snappy, blunt dialogue, but Haganai unfortunately falls victim to the generic harem ecchi trap.
Main character who has no friends and people think is scary for how he looks, similar lead females, assertive female, popular girl, pretty boy who looks like girl, main character also has cute younger sister. Also mc joins club to make friends with female lead who doesn't have friends either.
Club members consist of people who don't have many friends. I find that both of these shows is very enjoyable and you'll feel right at home watching them. Yahari Ore, I feel is more "pessimistic" and has apparent less fan service compared to Boku wa Tomodachi.
The male main character doesn't have friends and forces/joins a club to make friends. He eventually gets surrounded by females and they go through the saga of not calling each other friends when at the end of it all they are friends because they do friend stuff.
Both of them have characters which don't have friends and are unsociable. Throughout the story, in both anime, the main protagonists develop friendships with the people they hang out with, which they don't realize or don't want to realize.
The main difference is, that in Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, the protagonists want to have friends and fail to realize that they've already made them, and in Yahari Ore no Seishun, they don't really care about such things (at least that's what they want us to think).
TL;DR: Both are fun to watch. However, if you liked one of them it doesn't mean that you'll like the other.
Both involve a main character that's lonely and joins a club, thereby managing to make friends, specifically with a bitchy ice-queen-like girl and an energetic air-head girl. Both animes deal with social issues within highschool but are more funny than dramatic.
Stories of unpopular male MC joining a club, of which all other members are girls. Show extensive interaction between members within the club and how they try to achieve their club objectives. Both shows are humorous (not just comedy but zany humor).
Similar in various ways. Both of the male main characters have no friends. They both join a club. In a way, both of the main characters are involved in a love triangle.
Both main characters have no friends, school club setting, main females have similar personality.
• Both of these stories are about people who have problems making what can be considered a true friendships with each other because of some sort of social stigma that they themselves place
The author of OreGairu got the idea and inspiration to write the light novel after reading Haganai. Both series have a similar atmosphere, so if you'll like/have liked one of them, then the other one won't let you down, either. OreGairu might be a bit deeper than Haganai, however, as it includes various philosophies and truly emphasizes relations between the characters. Regardless, both have a similar touch and are very suggested.
both protagonists make clubs for people who don't fit in and one boy is surrounded by a bunch of girls. they also make the most of their time in the clubs and you get to see the gradual changes in them as the series progresses.
Both main characters are loners in school and want to make friends. They both end up being forced into the same club as the female lead. They participate in club activities and their circle of friends start to grow.
This is also one similar story of how a lonely guy came into a club and he started getting friends. It is quite a good story. However, unlike Oregairu, this anime has some fan service so the guys should be able to enjoy it.
In both anime, the main character is a guy who has no friends and then joins a club. Join the adventure of these anime!
Both anime have the same MC who isn't popular and is always getting avoided by the school's students. Both also have a little romance involved with a huge amount of comedy. (Seriously, I died several times while watching these two.) So if you like the first, then you will like the other.
- characters has no friends/wants to make friends/socially challenged
- misunderstood protagonists
- similar characters/tropes
- kuudere/tsundere: Yozora and Yukino
- fujoshi/pervert : Rika and Hina
- trap: Yukimura and Totsuka
There's a school club whose members mostly consist of the school's socially awkward, and whose secret mission in both is to simply make more friends. Both anime are presented simply, but have deep undertones that need a bit of looking into to appreciate. Also, the main character in both anime has two main companions: The popular air head beauty who really doesn't need to make any more friends than she already has, and the quiet but also equally beautiful girl that sports a more serious demeanor.
Both of these series involve socially inept skills and attempt to recover from their personality problems that set them far from the social interactions of their school.
Both are about a highschool guy with social problem, a tsundere girl, an energetic blonde girl, a girly looking guy, a pervert girl with an eyegalass doing random things in a random school club. Both have comedy, drama, and both are adopted from a light novel. Both are enjoyable to watch too.
Both male MCs have no mates and then suddenly get mad anime girls after joining a club, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru (what a mouthful), however, uses common tropes for comedy use resulting in it being funnier and overall more enjoyable.
The protagonist dosen't have any friends and they join a club.
Both of them are really funny series.
Both feature protagonists who are seen differently by others and have difficulty to socialize; focus on a everyday life inside a school club; those clubs have the same goal in two anime series, which is to help other people. The characters of both anime have similar personalities.
Characters try to make friends throughout club activities.
Haganai has the extra ecchi and harem tags, while OreGairu contains less fanservice and lewd references, and instead focuses more on it's witty dialogue and outside-club activities.
They are Similar , share the same tags : Romance/School/Comedy/Harem(Boku)...
as well both story lines follows the same path (Bunch of friends trying to make friends by helping them in fact they Share a strong bond Still Boku is Different from yahari Cause Boku is full with fun services and two short scenes of Mild Nudity so dont be happy you might miss it who knows well its up to you Dudes. Dudera
These two are so similar that the OreImo cast made a 'from behind' cameo appearance, in episode 11 of Boku.
Kirino and Sena are the same character... breasts aside. Their spoiled princess attitudes, erotic game addiction, prideful arrogance getting in the way of friendship and fangs are NEARLY IDENTICAL. What's more, Kuroneko and Yozora ALSO MIRROR EACH OTHER--sharing 'bickering love' friendships with K&S respectively. They argue CONSTANTLY when together, oblivious to the how similar their personalities are. The only difference of note in the relationships between the shows is that Yozora clearly has the upper hand against Sena--often forcing her to run away, crying. THERE'S EVEN A GUY IN THE LOVE-TRI MIDDLE, IN BOTH SHOWS!
The episodic content is VERY familiar, also: making friends is central to Boku's story but even OreImo had an episode about trying to make friends. And both shows deal heavily with otaku/gaming jokes.
• Both have similar art styles
• Both have similar characters
• Both involve gaming, cute girls gaming.
The art is similar and both have many things is common.
The constant fighting between Yozora and Sena remind me a lot to Kirino and Kuroneko (and the personalities are also similar, as the fanaticism that Kirino and Sena have for the eroge).
In short, if you like "OreImo" you'll like "Boku wa Tomodachi..." as well.
Similar comedic formats (one male straight man, two females who argue constantly but are united in harassing the guy)
Also, similar themes about being true to yourself and learning to accept your own quirks.
Same animation style, both really funny and comical
Both involve girls who are obsessed with eroge and want friends. Also have similar characters.
Both animes are made by AIC Build. Also, in both animes, there is moe, a girl who likes ero-games, a girl who dresses in gotchic lolita dress no matter what weather, and a otaku girl who wears glasses.
Both are also seinen series, and have harem in them.
Similar comedy style and both series have a girl obsessed with eroge.
Both animes try to address certain problems in today's society. Oreimo deals with the problem of being an otaku while Haganai focuses on the issue of making friends. While neither are particularly educational, they both offer hilarious moments and sometimes emotional moments.
Very similar in art styles and in episode 11 of boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai there is an appearence of the characters from ore no imouto ga konnani kawaii wake ga nai.
-Similar character personalities
-Recurring eroge theme
There are some jokes/allusions to OreImo within the series.
I really like both animes.
In both you'll find a male main character that is surrounded by a lot of girls. One difference here is that Boku wa Tomodachi also includes younger girls that couldnt't be in a relationship with the main actor. Also there is no brother/sister love story, like you can see it in Ore no Imouto, especially later on in the story.
And still with have two girls with Sena and Yozora that seem quiet related to Kirino and Kureneko. Their relationship is the same and both want something from the main character. Also Rika fits Manami somehow..
So as you can see also from the other comments, both series got a different storyline but have many characters that are familiar.
Both the artwork and cast, especially the cast, are very similar. For example, Sena and Kobato are practically IDENTICAL to Kirino and Kuroneko and they end up in fights as well. In addition, both shows make references to other anime and have brother complex and eroge too so if you liked one, then be sure to check the other one out!
They both are comedy, obviously. They both have a male protagonist and a little sister to accompany them in some way. They both deal with solving a problem.
Both the characters Sena and Kirino are full on otaku and force the main characters into playing the games that they like.
Both shows have a similar feeling--lightly harem, lots of otaku-oriented references, mostly about character and relationships, not too much high-concept and nothing supernatural. The theme of acceptance is very strongly presented in both shows. Both are primarily comedy with some dramatic moments. Both have sequels that differ in quality from the original (except that Haganai's sequel gets better, and Ore Imo's gets worse).
oreimo and haganai both share characters with similar personalities. in oreimo, the main character is a teen girl who has a obsession over eroge which is similar to sena in haganai. the two stories are also simlar where the 2 main character has a friend they fight alot with, for example , krino and kuroneko , sena and yozora.
For whatever reason, this didn't hit me until I watched the first episode of Tomodachi's second season but there's a SUPER OBVIOUS linking factor to be found between these two:
- Crazy bitches/galpals in a small school clubroom.
- One crazy bitch/galpal bullying the other in a "friendly" way.
- The male lead quickly becoming indifferent to the chaos surrounding himself; going with the flow due to being smart enough to know that it's pointless to either resist or intervene. (Instead, it's OBVIOUSLY better to commentate to the viewers with his internalized thoughts about what's going on.)
I suppose the whole love triangle thing is worth noting, as well... although it's only REALLY a love-tri in Tomodachi since the situation is far more competitive and up in the air compared to what's offered by Haruhi.
...oh, and the losers of the love-tri, according to the first girl rule, both have HUGE TITTIES!!!!! Fan-service. YES.
Oddball teenage schoolchildren form a club where the world is their oyster.
The headlining characters are:
- a 'nice guy' male who's neither a doormat nor assertive
- an unpleasant, quick witted girl who calls the shots
I've only seen the first episode of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, but I'm already picking up Haruhi Suzumiya vibes. The storyline of reluctant loner boy meets socially awkward beauty and together forming a bizarre club...
Both are about a club created to make friends. The Neighbor's Club is basically a heavily deconstructed SOS Brigade.
Both animes start out with the creation of a club made by a girl who is an out cast. Consequently, both animes have male leads that get dragged into the club and are forced to go to the clubs activities against their will. There is also a character in Boku wa that sounds like Haruhi.
Girl forces boy to join a club that he doesn't want to be involved with.
A deadpan snarky male gets the attention of a jerkass loner girl and they end up forming a club together.
- male protagonist joining in a weird club because of a girl
- another weird club activities
- similiar story between two animes
I recommend you both these of these animes because both main characters have the same atitudes , also both of them are doing the narrations, and both of them are dealing on an eccentric girl.
-Both series feature high school students in a club
-Both series have a very calm and collected male protagonist that is surrounded by girls
-Both series are generally comedic in nature, yet occasionally have serious moments
-Both are based on light novels
The protagonist appears to be a delinquent, meets a girl, and forms a club. The girl bullies the hell out of another girl for having large breasts. More members join and the club ends up becoming like a harem. (Almost all the characters seem to like Kyon in the Haruhi Suzumiya series...)
However, Haruhi's characters have special powers that are used to keep Haruhi from destroying the world.
-Similar story where girl forces boy to join a bizarre club, which then gets used to it.
-Both are based off light novels
-They're both slice of life
-Both have fanservice (although Haganai is a bit more explicit)
Both of these stories are about people who have problems making what can be concidered a true friendships with each other because of some sort of social stigma that they themselves place, or someone else does. The art style is also very simular.
no friends in both story
art both cute
romance , boku wa have more
both have really similar character design
both are 'bout an alone ppl (Erio in DOStO) and the club members in BokuTomo
both have great bishoujo and character :) and the weird atmosphere.
Both main characters are transfer students that meet and make friends with several females. Also, different writers but same artist for both these series.
Both of them has very sexy and unusual Buriki's design.
Both anime have a number of girls showing interest in one male protagonist. In other words, harem and also a bit ermm...ec...chi.. (a gender which attracts some men) :P
Both male protagonist are oblivious of the feelings that the girls have for them.
Both male protagonist have similar attitude (showing little interest in activities and giving this "how the hell did i get involved in this?" expressions from time to time)
very similar artwork and original character design (the latter being done by the same person!)
These shows have similar art styles and both involve the male protagonist being surrounded by strange girls.
•both have the same character art style,
•both anime male lead comes into a new town/area or returning
•both produce the same amount of ecchi sex, that leads the viewer imagining (things)
the randomness and comedic is more fluent in denpa onna, but there is some that will catch you off guard in boku wa.
•to be frank, they are similar in the comedic, ecchi, art style way.
Very Similar art
Both stories is about a female character that has trouble making friends and the male protagonist helps her out in some way or another.
Erio is like Yozora and Kobato rolled into one. And Maekawa is like Yozora. But what's really similar is the art styles.
-Both have MCs in an environment where they don't exactly fit in, one being an outcast and the other a transfer student.
-Both MCs often act as the tsukkomi to the other characters' antics.
-Both are romcoms.
-Both are completed (so far) animes, Boku wa has two completed seasons while Denpa Onna is close to a second season.
Anime that feature clubs that to normal students serves no purpose but for the actual club members serves as a place to belong. Both Anime also have a nice style.
both of those anime placed on a school and most of the club members are girls and same studio.
The same old one male in the group of girls in a club. Well in Boku wa tomodachi, Yukimura was a girly guy and in Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate, Oboro doesn't look like much of a guy. But both of these animes have all of the girls like the main protagonist. The whole anime is about a club that everyone in it loves.
Both series takes place at a school setting where a group of friends forms a club/student council.
Both series contains a lot of drama, comedy, and some romance.
Both series' main protagonist also has similar personalities as someone who wants to help his friends. Speaking of which, the main protagonist also interacts with other characters (mainly female) in both series.
Both have a club setting, school harem, and similar MCs.
The story takes place in the club room discussing about trivial questions, strategies, or just a chat down for some free time. Similarity wise, it has that school romantic dramedy feel where it focuses on the main male character interacting with the other club members with the majority of them being girls. There are serious moments, and some funny moments, and better yet relationships is another element in the story.
1) Both Series Main Characters Are In A Club
2) Both Are In Harem Genre
3) Both Clubs Serve No Purpose To Anyone But The Members Of The Club
4) Both Are School Romantic Comedy Anime
-Both series take place in a club that serves no purpose
-Both MCs are in a club with many girls
Lead male complained and avoided by his delinquent appearance but a nice guy in the inside, also both live alone with a naive and not completely independent female whom they care while doing the housekeeping. They both also interact with a set of ladies in an institute environment.
Starting out with similar situations BokuTomo and ToraDora share many similarities within the first episode alone. Similar main male characters; both boys with mean eyes who unintentionally get their classmates to give them things out of intimidation, not to mention they know how to cook! And both series have a lonely, yet strong-willed, long-haired female protagonist who decides off the bat that she is on first-name basis with her respective boy, and he likewise becomes just as close to her.
Both slice of life shows relate to the troubles of high school, be it romance or acceptance, and tell how different people can come together by the simplest means.
-both have a nice guy who's a delinquent only because of their looks
-both have some stuck up girls
-both fe/male leads have a common goal and work towards it together.
-both have a girl with just too much energy.
Both male protagonist have been labeled as delinquents because of their appearance. They both seem to befriend to two girls who are usually quiet with snappy attitude. Both also contain parody of the female protagonist and a pretty popular girl doesn't like each other right off the bat.
male lead:"I'm not a delinquent. its the eyes! It's all a misunderstanding! I'm a nice guy!"
"Wah? who's that girl i bumped into?"
half an ep or so later...
"we're both looking for love, Lets help eachother find a boyfriend/girlfriend."
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai story:
Male lead: "I'm not a delinquent. Its all a misunderstanding! I'm a nice guy"
"wah? who's that girl talking to herself?"
half an ep or so later
"we're both looking for friends, Lets help eachother get friends."
If this sounds like i'm making fun of the anime, i'm not. i freaking love toradora. My fav anime of all time. read more
Both male protagonists are mistaken as 'delinquents' because of their appearance.
They both meet an unsociable female who hates people who think they 'understand' her.
-Similar male protagonist
Both main characters have scary eyes, and people around them are afraid of them, even though they're actually kind.
Both are school-comedies where the main male character is dragged into a not-so-ordinary club. Also, I find Chitose sorta like Yozora with her slightly violent personality, Kenji a bit like Kodaka and Takao to be like Sena (she is wayyy better than her though) Also Kenji acts like a delinquent, same as Kodaka. Both are funny and lovable.
A main character becomes part of an unusual club with members that seems to all have their own interests at hand. The club itself also gets into odd events and often causes trouble for the main character.
Regardless, both series are comedy series with humorous dialogues, character interactions, and gags that plays around the school setting and concepts. They both also involve characters that wants the main protagonist to join their club for personal reasons.
Some of the moments in each episode may feel a bit random but are used as a way to present comedy.
The MC are school-rumored delinquent. But the truth is that they have a kind heart, and end up being forced to join a club by the main heroine. The art is kinda similar and from my opinion D-Frag! jokes are funnier than Haganai jokes.
Both are comedies with signs of romance.
Both have a "deliquent-like" protagonist. Really.
The funny thing is that in Boku wa Tomodachi the protagonist has the atmosphere and looks of one, and in D-Frag he wants to look like one, but nobody takes him for one.
A delinquent boy who is joined by beautiful girls in a social club activities... makes it awkward for him to follow their motivation. The romantic comedy focuses the main male character interacting with the members of the club who are a majority population of girls. It can be awkward, relationships, funny, or random at times, but soon he will grown into the club and have fun.
Haganai focus on the "Neighbors Club" which they focus on making new friends and try to socialize each other. D-Frag follows a boy who is surrounded by awkward girls with a club that is a "Fantasy Imaginary" gaming club.
both have :
a mc that gets mistaken for a delinquent
a group of elite's girls
a imouto with a brother complex
a big boob girl who tries to be nice to the mc litlle sister but just ends up scaring her
in both anime's the mc gets forced to join a club they never heard of
and in both anime's they must do something to protect their club
Both has a protagonist that was forced to join a certain club full of interesting club members and both are really numb when it comes to love.
Both animes are school comedy where the protagonists are seen as delinquents and due to this end up getting in several cases and quite interesting moments. Apart from that both end up entering school clubs not so normal, it also has very similar characters.
Same inappropriate humor. Both male characters were forced into the club. One male with many females around him.
Both are from the viewpoint of a male surrounded by females in a club that he has been dragged into.
Some pretty hilarious sex references in both.
Both are set in high school and are based around a group of friends in a club. Seitokai has a bit more sexual humor but I wouldn't call it ecchi, the comedy comes from the dialogue and in its second season it has a very close connection to Haganai in the sense of the love story portrayed in both shows. It has lots of entertaining characters and keep you interested in the entire time, both series have something for you to laugh/moe at during every scene watch it and you'll have the best time of your life.
Both are gag comedies with mainly female cast around one male. Both have perverted inapropiate humor and both have school setting.
Same vulgarities and a similar ensemble of main characters.
Haganai and oreshura incorporate light-hearted humor in the daily interactions of the male lead with the main female characters.
Due to joining a certain club, the male lead slowly discovers that he is placed in a situation where several girls are fighting to determine who will be his love interest. Drama ensures.
The similarities between Haganai and Oreshura start from their light novel origins. Both anime's incorporate lighthearted humor along with a tendency to highlight social awkwardness, mob mentality and general social commentary.
If you intend to dive into the Winter 2013 season, then definitely give Haganai a watch, simply for the fact that Haganai NEXT is also airing during the same time.
Both have a similar feeling. Both of these anime focus on a club and gain additional members as it progresses (all of them weird to an extent). The comedy in both anime are similar as well, except Boku wa Tomodachi is more direct and evil while Ore no Kanojo is indirect hides the puns in between speech :)
-Both become better friends through a club
-Multiple girls liking one guy
-Guy doesn't have love on his mind (or doesn't make it clear)
-Lots of things that take place are club activities
-Both are based around a school
-Both are comedies
-All the members of the club share feelings for the male
-The club is based around making friends rather than becoming "better maidens"
-The male doesn't seem to care about his education
Overall they're pretty similar so I would recommend watching it.
Both series include a main male lead that ends up in a harem, which he isn't that happy to get. Well, in all honesty, he doesn't quite care on the start, as long as no one gets in his way. Later through the story, however, he gets attached to the girls around. Spiced with comedy, both series give away the splendid harem romantic comedy atmosphere.
Both are funny, slice-of-life harem shows. The main female character is almost identical.
Both are about club activities with 1 guy and multiple girls.
One would think that slice of life at school would get boring, but both of these shows take what is the mundane and make it interesting.
Anime in which most things happen in a club room. Both are comedies with a group of girls and one boy.
The two are very similar in terms of comedy. Parodies galore and plenty of boke-tsukkomi dynamic.
The characters roles are swapped, however.
Ken actively makes an effort to make the girls part of his harem, even announcing it to them. He puts up with a lot of work so they can have fun, for the sake of cute girls being cute and happy. He acts as the boke to the girls' tsukkomi.
Kodaka would rather avoid them as they're always causing him trouble, though he can't help but put up with them. He puts up with their attitudes so they can have fun for the sake of "friendship". He acts as the tsukkomi to the girls' boke.
School club, comedy, romance, one man with a lot of girls (in a harem way), friendship and blonde game otaku females.
both are simular on how the main character is some how related to them as a friend and how they became part in the club.
Both has :
- Comedy and Romance
-Unique funny characters
-Boku wa Tomodachi is more ecchi
-Nisekoi has more romance.
The school set-up is apparent in both anime, not to mention both are harem anime. The main protagonists(Kodaka for Haganai and Raku for nisekoi) have their own harem in which there are two main female leads. The rom-com in both are very entertaining and each character has their own special trait that stands-out from others. Both anmie also put a slight focus on character relationships while weaving in the casual fan-service.
main guy has a childhood friend he doesn't remember who (kinda)
main guy is getting a forced marriage from parents to another girl
main guy kinda has troubles having friends (Nisekoi not much)
blonde haired and black haired girls for main characters
Sakunai (Haganai) is more bold..er, I mean more revealing (rated R+)
Other story threads
Plot, characters alike, similar theme, with equal genders
-The main characters of both anime had a childhood friend 10 years earlier, but they were separated and never saw eachother again. No matter how hard they try, the main character can't remember the childhood friend's name, amongst other things.
-Both anime are Harem/Romance/Comedy, but Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai has more ecchi and fanservice, while Nisekoi focuses more on romance.
-Both anime deal with social issues such as making friends, and the slow uncovering of the characters' past is a central plotpoint.
Both have a guy and girl starting a club together that starts to grow, both clubs have more girls than guys, and they are both romantic anime
Both of these anime are focused on protagonists who have trouble making friends, therefore starting a club and making friends on the way. Both of them are packed with comedy, emotions and friendships.
Although it's much heavier in terms of emotions, both have a fun sense of humor and lovable cast of characters you'd have to be heartless not to like.
A club recruits members and friendships form.
They have differing morals though: Friendship in HaGaNaI, and life in Clannad.
(Oh, and Angel Beats would be another recommendation.)
The main protagonists on each anime have the same situation, they are considered like a delinquent and have no friends because of that. He will create a club with an another girl and some girl people will join the club during the history.
The past and the present history are connected on both anime.
tada banri- kodaka
The story of these anime are the same, its all about a childhood friend and friendship.
Comedy, Romance, Seinen, these three components of both of these series make the similarity bond beween these animes. The main girls in both of these animes (Sena and Kara) are the almost exactly the same;rich, arrogant, blunt, smart, and a daughter of a rich family. Although the setting and plot might be different, you still get the same atmosphere and feel from both animes. They can both be really funny and serious by the next second. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is more ecchi and has a harem theme compared to Golden Time.
Story of a love triangle (polygon) between the male lead and many female leads, including childhood friends and classmates. These anime can be silly comedic in one moment, and then serious in the next moment. Both anime have a heroine who is an arrogant, blunt, smart lady from a rich family.
both animes have a similar genre except that Golden Time deals with a little more drama. both animes have similar character outlines like:
kodaka = banri
kouko = sena
yozora = yozora
both are enjoyable animes and worth watching.
The theme of a club at school with its members doing random activities to pass their time is present in both series.
Both series' main male protagonist are surrounded by a group of characters who all have their own personalities and adds fun/drama to the series.
Both series' main female protagonist/president has a strange personality that often gets into weird moments with the main male protagonist. There seems to be a lack of plot present in both series but rather follows what the club's activities in their every day lives.
There is also a lot of comedy present in both series.
Club when it comes down to it, these are basically the same show.
Male character is scorned by the school population in genera so he joins a vaguely-purposed club populated by mostly girls.
Both are about club activities with 1 guy and multiple girls.
Same inappropriate humor.
Both series take place at a club in school that no one hardly joins. In fact, both clubs are known for the weird antics they do and because of that most students tend to stay away from it. These clubs are named the Neighbor's club and the Gj-Bu club both, in which have one male lead surrounded by females with distinct personalities. It's a harem with hilarious members to past the time in the club.
a club without really a clear activity (unless if we consider talking as an activity).Plus the whole events are in the club-room , I think that was enough to make me feel the similarity between these two animes.
When it comes down to it, these are basically the same show. Male character is scorned by the school population in general, so he joins a vaguely-purposed club populated by mostly girls. Fanservice, romantic tension, and hilarity ensue. Several of the characters have rough analogues between the two shows:
Yuuta = Kodaka
Mio = Sena
Arashiko = Yozora
Tatsuki = Yukimura
Noa = Rika
Both anime consist of a guy who joins a club full of girls, there is a good amount of romance in each.
Both have that "harem" feel to it. While the main lead in Haganai isn't a masochist, girls around both the leading male characters are kind of insane in their own way.
Both have this little group of people who do activities together, Both has quite a bit of ecchi in them (some more in Noucome though). The story and character development are really good in both animes, and both will give you a good laugh :p.
• Both series are about friendship
• In both series there is a bit of ecchi comedy (Noucome is a lot more focused on it than Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai)
• Both series will give you a good laugh
Both series have a main character that is unpopular for a rather strange or invalid reason.

Both are flippin good.
Both are kinda about clubs and outcast meeting together, though the characters from Kokoro has a deeper bond. Also, in Kokoro, it has more of a supernatural setting, while Haganai is more of a friendly setting. Though, both of these series show the deep connection between friends. Some by comedic values, and some by a drama aspect.
Both these anime take place in a school club room. The characters and comedy in both are similar. Both involve a bit of romance between members.

Both have epic OP's
Pretty/Fancy artstyle :}
-Comedy and slice-of-life genres
-They are about a character which wants to make friends
-Both have a character which is interested in playing visual novels and dating sims
-Some sex jokes thrown throughout
-WataMote just focuses mostly on one MC, while Haganai focuses on 3 and has a harem-like setting
-Haganai is more explicit on its sex jokes, compared to the other
These two are very different in concept, but they both have an extremely similar humor, centered around absurd scenarios, ecchi comedy, and character traits and personalities. They also share the theme of being largely school-based, but having many scenes that take place outside of school, as well. The male leads of both are quite different, but similar in the sense that they are misunderstood and strive to be normal, while being surrounded by strange females, who they feel the need to protect. Not to mention, both male protagonists have odd and overbearing little sisters with strong attachments to their brothers.
Both have a little romance
Both have a little harem in it
- 5 girls for haganai and 5 girls for Mayo Chiki that are always near the Main Male Character
Both talks about making friends
Both has a pinch of comedy in it
Both of these are School Life and Slice of life anime, as well as comedies. Both of the main male characters try to fit in in their new school. Both anime have a lot of pretty funny situations, and the story is really interesting. The animation and art style are both really good, too.
Formed a club with a specific goal in mind but they ended forgetting the goal and just having fun dealing with each other.
In both series, it revolves a club with special activities. However, these activities usually are not so typical with school related ideas. Otherwise, Natsuo and Sena both have some similarities as being popular but also at times insecure and has a strange fascination in their minds. On the other hand, Yozora and Riko are considered tomboys and has a strange interaction with their club members.
There is many fun gags from both series and among other things...catchy dialogues, humor, and randomness. Both series also takes place at a school life setting.
Both are about a club doing pointless activities mostly unrelated with the club.
Both have a the same kind of humor, over hyped and exaggerated along with slapstick humor.
The art is similar in both shows.
Both give off a similar feel while watching. (Club members doing random things)
The club in Haganai is about making friends whereas the one in Love Lab is about discovering love.
Love Lab only has female characters while Haganai has a male lead and sort of a harem setting.
Some Shoujo Ai in Love Lab that does not exist in Haganai.
Nonetheless both shows give off a similar vibe with club activities that are pointless to what the actual club is suppose to be, if you've seen Love Lab you might enjoy Haganai, and the same goes for the opposite if you don't mind some possible Shoujo Ai in Love Lab.
They are both light-hearted, romantic-comedy anime. Both of them are very funny and will brighten up any day. Both of them are very enjoyable to watch.
Both are slice of life comedies that features an antissocial boy hanging around many quirky girls. They are in a club that helps people to socialize and make friends, but they always end up playing silly games or just doing ramdom things. Both anime are kinda harem and ecchi too, with hints of romance between the protagonist and the snarky girl. The music (OPs and EDs) in both shows are quite similar.
Both anime share common genres which are harem/romance/comedy and focus on a male protagonist (of course). Boku wa Tomodachi is a full-on comedy that also deals with some important issues. I guaranteed this anime will have you up till 6 in the morning watching it because it is truly a hilarious, sexy, and enjoyable show. This anime not only targets male viewers but a female audience too. Anyway, enjoy ^_^ (P.S. There is a sequel to this anime!!!)
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (or Haganai) and Kimi ni Todoke have similarities in which both shows focus on a character who lives a troubled school life where all of their classmates misunderstand them and eventually meet someone who changes their life. Through out both of these shows the main character learns true friendship and what it's like to have true friends.
Want to see more comedic situations involving a manipulative sadist (Yozora) messing with a perverted ditz (Sena) on a daily basis? If yes is your answer, then Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is the show for you!
Both have harem, both have fan service, both are ecchi...
except this has demons, angels and epic fights in addition. While the 1st season of High School DxD may lack the good characters Haganai does, everything is fixed in this 2nd season.
One warning though, the fan service in this one might be way too overwhelming to any girls trying to watch. Actually, calling it fan service is an understatement. This is almost hentai. BUT, if you are able to look past that, the story is pretty amazing.
In order to make friends, one has to socialise. To do that, one has to go outside. But in order to go outside, one has to leave their comfort zone, opening up to the world. Both stories work when viewed succession, as it follows the struggles of all of the above statements.
While Welcome to the NHK follows Tatsuhiro Sato, a college dropout who cannot leave his comfort zone and go outside, Haganai, follows Kodaka Hasegawa who stuggles to socialise and make friends. Even though both characters are completely different, they can still be related to in some ways.
Both anime series have lasting appeal with comedic elements - especially in the English-language versions - and beautiful animation for the time periods they were released. You will not be disappointed by the fitting soundtrack or the execution of the storylines, even if Haganai's storyline is considered a little cliche.
Both are great Dramas with multiple girls liking the MC. Both MC's are outcast from most of their classmates for either wanting to keep cats in the school dorms where it is strictly prohibited or because their hair makes them look like a delinquent. Both find peace and tranquility... cough cough, that's what they were hoping but no, they both end up with madness all around them.
Difference is in Sakurasou, the MC makes up his mind between the girls whereas in Tomadachi he doesn't
i can't believe that no one recommend this !!! haganai is like the spin off of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata in a way !! the neighboursclub ---> the doujin circle
sena ---> Eriri Spencer
yozora ----> Kasumigaoka, Utaha
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata is the story where kodaka would be an otaku
Both have a similar setting and each of the character have their own UNIQUE personality! Which is same to both anime! Especially the main character!!
Not to mention the similarity in genre -
Both are comedy, romance and school live as well!
All the girls in this show like the male protagonist.
Both anime are harem,comedy and romance.
---- ------ --------
Haganai - club activities(making friends)
Rosario+vampire - making friends with supernatural girls.
If you want a nice school comedy, with some flavor of romance, these 2 are very similar in that sense. They differ, though, in that while in Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun the relationships are all 1x1 and develop quite slowly, Haganai configures a Harem in which the girls all fight a cold war to win the main protagonist.
Both of these animes are feel good stories of highschool "social outcasts" attempting to make friends while each overcoming their own unique difficulties. Isshuukan friends focuses more on plot and character development while Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai has more comical/fanservice aspects mixed into it. Both are very good animes and i would highly recommend both of them.
School life has a way of creeping up on someone and giving the unexpected twists and turns. Both of these Anime deal with school life and have a rather crisp style to them.
I started watching this right after i finished DXD and both are two of my favorite harem comedies of all time. Though i did enjoy DXD more because of its violence. Haganai is a great series that takes you on one hell of a emotional ride!
At least in the chapters 0 and 2 of "Boku wa Tomodachi..." the fanaticism for games (specially visual novels), and how the character gets into the unreality world remind me a lot at "KamiNomi"!
The main characters are pretty similar:
They are both feared because of their appearance
yet despite that they happen to find love
Both are involved with club activities.
Boku wa's OP is very similar with K-ON!'s 2nd season OPs.
Both have Blonde Ojou-sama's.
Colorful characters and fanservice that manages to be hilarious instead of distracting, no matter how over the top it goes.
Both animes are Harems. Their are two main male leads who are use to being loners and are suddenly surrounded by girls. Some of the characters are similar.
Kadoka and Souta,
Megumu and Yukimura
Nanami and Yozora
What do you get when you add Myself;Yourself, Kore wa Zombie, Baka no Test, Toradora, Yosuga no Sora, Suzumiya Haruhi and a bit of School Days?
You get this anime, albeit less drama, less gore, less violence but nevertheless the plot elements, characters and references can be found similar to the other anime.
Similar character personalities. Yoroza from Sukunai has the same personality as Kirihime. While Shining is the same as Sena. Both clash at each other from time to time. Shining aka Sena is given a nickname that only Yoroza/Kirihime refrers to her. Kodaka and Kazuto both revolve around these two.
Both are comedy slice of life about a group of friends who like to try different stunts in their everyday life. The humour in both shows are the same type so if one makes you laugh, no doubt the other will too. Lots of references made to other anime, fantastic voice acting and pervy jokes.
Both about Clubs and childhood friends.
Both packed with fun times and romantic times.
Saku = Kodaka
Mihoshi = Yozora
in boku wa tomodachi
Kodaka don't know about yozora being his childhood friend, but in sora no mani mani he knew already.
Similar comedy, artistic style, and characters.
Haganai is a bit more random and toned-down overall in terms of excitement, while OniAi is more exaggerated and focuses almost exlusively on the romance/harem aspect. Both involve plenty of fanservice (just watch their OPs to get a sense of it).
The theme of school and clubs are present in both of these series.
The main character has interactions with different characters of conflicting personalities. Although there is much comedy, both series have serious and emotional moments.
Also, there is hints of obvious romance present in both series that are shown in an unique way. One way of supernatural, the other one of tsundere.
Both main characters are kind hearted guys starting to a new school and seeking friendship. Also both being misunderstood and feared by others for their delinquent-like appearance (more close to demon-like for Kitano)
i know this has no similarity to the plot but they are both very funny
they both have comedy,ecchi,harem in them
also has alot of girls going after the guy
