SynopsisNicknamed "Dry Ice," Shizuku is seen as emotionless and cold by her classmates. When she's tasked with delivering class printouts, she runs into Haru, who immediately decides that they're friends. Shizuku is touched by his innocence and his lack of knowledge towards human relationships.
Though known as a violent and uncontrollable monster, Haru also has a kind and gentle side. He immediately declares his love for Shizuku, but it takes much longer for her to realize and accept her own feelings towards him. Together, the two previously unsocial beings help each other learn how to care for others and make friends.

Characters & Voice Actors
It is a shame that rom-coms today are completely infested with harems, where an ordinary guy pimps multiple beautifully-pixelated girls. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, my friends, is how a romantic comedy should strive to be. First of all, there are two key elements that make up for a successful romantic comedy: romance and comedy. I don’t consider romance to be: “I love you because you are the main character of this story, and there is no particular reason why.” I also don’t consider comedy to be constant sexual innuendos and sexual harassment. It is not funny, not to mention overdone.
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is an feel good love story. Amazingly, the appeal does not depend on the size of one’s breasts. The two main characters, Shizuku and Haru, make up a hilarious dynamic duo. They are both socially awkward, combined with the fact that they have no earthly idea of how a relationship works. This is actually a big positive, because the story avoids all the generics in your typical relationship cycle. Skip the “fated encounter”, the “commonalities”, the “date”, the “predicament”, the “make up”, and the “confession”. Haru and Shizuku are simply oblivious to the norm, which allows them to clearly speak their minds. Imagine blurting out everything you think and how ridiculously entertaining that would be. This is one of the primary reasons why the characters in Tonari are so lovable and funny.
Brains Base did a spectacular job in producing this anime. The art is marvelous in all respects. The scenery, the character designs, and the animations makes Tonari quite a relaxing spectacle. The character designs are flawless. My heart often skips a beat when I see the characters blush or smile. It’s so cute and heart-warming. Seriously. Who needs moe? The voice actors, particularly Haruka Tomatsu, did a masterful job in portraying their respective characters. The script flowed perfectly with the characters, and came off as “incredibly natural”.
This review is relatively short and to the point, because the goal is to spread the word about this show. For those of you who haven't done so, add Tonari to your plan-to-watch list! I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a rom-com to this magnitude. Toradora! and School Rumble comes to mind, and ironically, the stories are awfully relatable.
So while scrolling through Netflix during the ungodly hours of the early morning, I came across Tonari no Kaibutsu-Kun. The premise seemed interesting; a studious, no nonsense, anti-social girl named Shizuku finds a friend in a hostile boy Haru.
While not an entirely unique story nor complex, I still found it entertaining.
The story is quite simplistic, but I didn't really mind that much. (I just finished Noragami yesterday and that one was very complex.)
I will say that I almost clicked out on the first episode due to pacing issues. However, I'm glad I didn't, because it turned out to be quite enjoyable. The said pacing issues were non-existent due to a scene that happens at the end of the first episode that surprised and intrigued me, but I won't spoil it here.
It was listed under the comedy section, so I figured I'd give it a shot, to break it up from all the serious anime I've been watching lately.Needless to say, the comedy did not disappoint. On multiple occasions I found myself laughing out loud, I even almost squirted milk up my nose.
The art while nice and clean, is nothing special, however there are aspects and moments that are really beautiful. The animation during any of the sunset scenes are absolutely stunning. In the second episode I believe it's raining and the shot holds on the rain and the puddle. It looked incredibly realistic. Though not as stunning as others, I also love the eye designs, especially Shizuku and Haru's.
The opening song is pretty average for the Shouju genre (or at least the ones I've seen), and I admittedly don't think that much for the ending song either. I will say I adore the soundtrack though, it's really mellow, and I could probably listen to it whilst going to sleep.
The characters, I found were all very unique and distinct from one another, yet still maintain their personality as they developed. That being said, I feel as if it could have used a few more episodes to further develop the characters, as it ended fairly ambiguously in regards to said characters.
When I started this early this morning, (like at one or two am) I didn't want to stop. But after watching four episodes I figured I should go to sleep. The first thing I did when I woke up this morning, you ask? I watched more. I definitely had me hooked, and I really wanted to know what was going to happen. I was a touch disappointed at the ending however the journey paid off, more so than the destination.
When I first started watching My Little Monster, I was already following Say 'I Love You' and I must admit, the initial impression I was left after three or four episodes with was mixed. One of the strengths of this show - and this is already strikingly clear from its first episode which was a very strong start - is the amount of content and fun it can cram into 20 minutes. However, I was a little bemused at the first-glance appearance of the relationship.
Haru's casual rape threat in the first episode, and repeated use of his physical strength to have his way made me wary, given Shizuku's remaining at his side without much objection. The relationship definitely has some interesting moments and eventually becomes much more appealing and less tasteless than it seemed at first - both are very interesting, flawed characters (especially Haru, whom you might not even end up liking much) and their differences certainly enrich the experience. Shizuku is by no means a weak lead character.
However the underlying truth is that, despite all of the teenage turbulence, ups and downs etc. their relationship hasn't really gone anywhere throughout the one cour of MLM that we'll (probably) ever get. Shizuku can't be straightforward and sees the distribution of her energy between Haru and studying as a zero-sum game in which the latter is more important. Haru is alarmingly frank about his feelings but is repeatedly self-sabotaging in his attempts to unravel her defences and by the end, since the first episode, we feel that he has in a way made as many steps backwards as he has forwards in pursuing her. At this point, much of our attention is captivated by the other characters.
Normally, a romantic primary plot that doesn't really get anywhere wouldn't be too much of a problem, but it actually becomes fairly noticeable in this show simply because of how pumped full of content and activity each episode is - a fact that the very exciting first episode only exacerbates. Sure, quite a lot can go on in a single episode and this is definitely, overall, a forte in terms of fun, laughs and subtle developments. However, the big problem is that the fact that there is such a limited sprinkling of the dramatic over this whirlpool, and the fact that our character's stories only change very gradually somewhat trivializes most of the content and makes it less deliberate or meaningful, as you would get from some of the other great rom-coms. I consider myself a fairly patient viewer, but by the end I was really hoping for some zest, some drama, some passion, which I think would really add completion to MLM and bump it up to a 5-star rating, but which never really surfaced in these 13 episodes. This isn't really a big deal though, the high-school setting managing to overcome the absence of feels quite passably and charmingly. Besides, MLM is quite full of laughs and it isn't a dull show. You will be enjoying yourself.
As for the secondary characters and their relationships: Surprisingly, these are the hidden strength of the series. You can relate to MLM's secondaries quite strongly. They emerge gradually in line with the show's "fast but actually slow" pacing and as I said before, at the end they have somewhat forced their way onto the centre stage alongside the primary relationship. Jaded romance-viewers might find the character line-up a little standard, but I think they were overall well-handled and endearing. Things weren't particularly predictable to me. Despite this, the sluggish progression of significant events means that we haven't really seen much more movement with the secondaries than we have with the primaries, even though they are all well fleshed-out. It seems that this season has been a big preparation - ie. gradual introduction of characters etc. which will precede the crescendo. But then as I said, that crescendo will probably never come as this may have just been a big advert for the manga.
Last but not least, on the technical side it's very solid. The art is superb and sometimes the movements are quite impressive. Character designs are good and quite unconventional in this day and age, supported by plenty of fun expressions. No complaints here. The music is also great, with a fantastic OP and ED to wrap each episode in.
Overall, MLM has some great moments hidden within. It's highly entertaining, and seems destined to become even better if it's ever given a second cour. The lack of both potent drama and a more determined linear progression in the relationship dynamics have been the main weaknesses of this season, but they are not significant. It's a solid and fun watch and deserves its recognition.

Four episodes in and my general disposition towards Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is: "Where the hell have you been all my life."
I'll be frank, I've watched a lot of crap anime and I've finished a lot of crap anime just for the sake of finishing it. Do this enough times and going into the next show will often leave you with a "here we go again" feeling before the opening credits even begin to roll. Then, every now and again, something like Tonari comes along and shakes the mundane foundation and manages to break you free of that just-another-anime trance, and I'm thankful for that.
I don't want to ramble, so let's point out the reasons why you'll like Tonari:
-Cleverness. You're not going to get a lot of overused tropes or shallow jokes with this one. The humor is well thought out, often spontaneous, and doesn't rely on the same old gags every episode. Cleverness is a big deal in anime today with so much copy pasting of old ideas and themes, and Tonari manages to come away feeling fresh in that regard.
-Characters. Each character's different. You'll find similarities to others from different shows, but it's not like Taiga=Louise stuff going on here. Your brain quickly recognizes that these characters are unique and because of that you are in for a truly unique and quirky experience.
-Pacing. Everything usually moves at an alarming pace in this show, especially with the big "oh no he didn't" moment in the very first episode. That is of course until it comes to a proper crawl during the sweet and charming relationship building moments that are a necessity when considering a series such as this. So far filler has been kept to the utmost minimum and and when taking into consideration the demanding Japanese television scene as a whole, it's super impressive.
Overall, I don't see Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun getting stale any time soon and I hope it closes on a note we can all agree upon. I feel confident in saying that this is one of the best anime to air this season and I'm looking forward to its conclusion. Thanks for reading. read more
Both are shoujo anime, feature a love build up between characters and lots of comedy in between.
The heroine in both dont have any friends, and seem a bit off and normal people avoid them. Both the main guy in both anime see her differently than others do and confess they like her
The resemblance between these two are amazingly high:
- Guy and a Girl
- The girl doesn't have friends because of something that happened in the past
- The guy falls for the girl and wants to protect her
and so on.. just watch the first episode of both
The female character equally new experience first kiss and i think they have same characteristic
In both shoujos the main female character doesn't really have a strong social life or any friends, but everything changes after a certain guy comes into their life. Both are very enjoyable.
•both are the usual shoujo, romance, school life, comedy genre......
•both have a main protagonist girl that chooses not to have friends
•both have a well handsome/good looking/cute male that falls head over heels for them
•both girls slowly develop feelings for them, and address by confessing the issue in the first couple of episodes
•both males want to protect the girl
•both gain friends/rivals
•similar in the typical school life romance.
The main girl is shy in both shows but slowly get comfy in their relationship
Both anime have a cold girl who changes a boy. . .
Both female protagonists have basically the same views before they meet a boy who changes them. To me, these anime are very similar! Am I the only one that sees it!?!?
Both main characters don't have any friends at the beginning and avoid other people. Both come in touch with a boy who sees them differently
- Both Shizuku and Mei don't care about socializing, but that changes after they meet Haru and Yamato.
- Both Haru and Yamato are insecure about their relationship with their girlfriend. Haru dislikes Shizuku spending time with Yamaken, while Yamato dislikes Mei getting closer to Kai.
• Both main protagonist girl chose not to have friends.
• Both girls slowly develop feelings for them.
• Both males want to protect the girl.
Both have a female lead that doesn't think they need friends or anyone for that matter. And both have a male lead that sees her differently than everyone else. And the male leads make the female question her own values.
Both are about love overpowering everything, and watching people's attitudes on life change.
Both also include a very small, but notable love triangle.
It is definitly a quick romance that displays a girl who learns lessons on life while liking a cool, most popular, good looking guy in the school. This anime does have a cute, and sweet atmosphere when watching the 2 mains
Both are touching stories about unlikely high school couples. Both have similar reclusive female protagonists
They both show the development of awkward characters as they begin to realize (slowly) a sweet love.
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (My little monster-English name) and Sukitte Ii na yo. (Say "I love you") both start the same. There is a unpopular girl, and a boy who's not like her... In My little Monster, the boy (Haru) is misunderstood for being a delinquent type character after spilling blood on the first day. In Say I love you, Yamato is the most popular guy in school and seemingly out of reach. In both anime, there is a confession in the first episode. They both have manga that continue the story. So really, they both are fast-moving romance anime with a lot of comedy.
Both made from the same creator and have a cute love story. As they both have some hilarious side characters and adorable side romances. Both girls have that 2nd boy that are head over heals for them, but can't except there love. I promise you that neither of them will disappoint you!
To start of both shows have same genres (shoujo,slice of life,romance,school..etc.)
The main Character of Sukitte ii na yo is similair to Shizuku (the MC of TnKk) ,at the start both of them don't have friends and obviously no love experience and are saying to them selfs stuff like ''I don't need friends they only use each other'',''I don't have time for that'',and then you have Yamato and Haru (The male MCs of the show) that both pick an intrest to these ''anti-social'' girls and so love slowly starts blooming (lol)
-Sorry for the sucky description,but you should give them a try, i guarantee that you will like both of them :)
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun and Say I Love You are probably the two most similar anime I've seen so far. They both focus on the love story of an unlikely couple. The main female characters are very similar, since both Mei and Shizuku are kind of socially isolated and... well, friendless. The main male characters are similar in a way that they both attract attention of many girls. Another similarity are the supporting characters Nakanishi and Asami (Say I Love You) and Sasayan and Natsume (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun). The characters individually are very similar, but also their relationship with each other is similar. Asami and Natsume are quite popular with the boys and oblivious to the feelings of Nakanishi/Sasayan. Although, this relationship is more developed in Say I Love You. Nonetheless, the whole dynamic of the group and the characters themselves are very similar, as well as the drama and comedy of the story. If you enjoyed Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun because of the comedy, the love story, the group dynamic and relationships, you should also be able to enjoy Say I Love You.
First of all both series have great and unique main character guy, they are hilarious and different from all any others guys from other series.
Both series are about school / romance in a different way (not normal way), which is very funny and entertaining to watch.
The supporting characters help to move the plot and make it even more special and humorous.
Differences: Obviously the theme is not the same one, but u will feel the same feeling of love and will make lots of laught
+Both are similar in many ways.
+Both are Comedy, Romance, School, Shoujo
+Both got Cool main characters.
+Both got main female characters who like studying.
+Both anime main female lead sees the male lead as her rival.
In some ways, I found these two series quite similar.
Both series takes place at a school life setting where the main male protagonist is very independent and has control over his surroundings. However, at times he feels insecure especially in regards with the main female protagonist where he feels jealousy.
On the other hand, the female protagonist in both series are very serious yet kind students at school known strangely for their personalities.
Both series has a general lighthearted setting and mood that mixes in comedy, drama, and romance.
•both anime are relatively the same in genres, shoujo, school life, romance,
•both animes focus on the girl protagonist who, strives to be the best at what she can do, and have nobody to rely on, especially a male,
•both female protagonists have no experience socializing with the opposite sex, they are always afraid of her or avoid her
•both male protagonists are a hanful of mischief, to silently being romantic to acting the complete opposite and causing trouble and confusion for the female protagonist
•they are very similar in the strong minded female protagonist, who unexpectedly makes the male, slowly fall in love with them.
Both have the similar in the slight love plot line.
The main guy character is a boy who won't give up on his love, is a bit mischievous, and extremely direct in the things he says.
The main female character is a girl who simply isn't interested. She finds the guy, annoying. She will soon find that she has feelings for the guy too... but still find that he is unbearable.
Both have the same type of humor in it, if you like one, you will probably enjoy the other.
if u like this anime then u will like maid-sama because they both have the perfect mix of comedy/romance
Both have similar character.
Both are similar in many ways like how the main female characters likes to study.
The two smartest students in the school. The guy always manages to beat the girl :) Nice, cute shoujo anime :)
Haru (the main guy character in Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) definitely reminds me of Usui (the main guy character in Kaichou wa Maid sama) in that they both tag along constantly with the main girl character and they act strangely around her in order to show that they like her. Also, the girl protagonists in both are stubborn and confused about how they feel about the guy protagonist. Definitely try both if you like romantic comedies!
It has a tsundere-ish female character who puts studies first before friends and social life. Has a sexual pervert as the signifcant other. VERY similar trust me
Both stories include a love relationship in which the boy is a cool badass who shares and says anything that falls on his mind, while the girl is only trying to achieve her dedicated goal at first. But it would seem love is too strong for both of them to handle and they slowly start to give in...
- Tsundere Female Protagonist
- Reckless Male partner
- Guy likes the girl while the girl just can't be honest with her feelings
- Guy from another school after the female protagonist
They're both hilarious anime but they still have their sweet moments!
If you liked Kaichou wa Maid-Sama, you'll definitely like Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun!
Both have very similar main characters and the pacing of the comedy is similar. Both are romances and the confession comes first from the teenage boy who somehow admires the strong-willed, independent teenage girl. Also, both end somewhat ambiguously but have implied futures. They are somewhat different, I enjoyed them both enough to go back and watch the first episodes again after watching the last.
A girl trying hard in school to get a good future.
A boy who does not try hard and is still good at everything.
Both are lovable characters.
Over time they develop feelings for each other ( Male protagonist first)
Both female protagonist attempt to resist but eventually fall in love with the male protagonist.
Both contain some humor and drama.
Both is a 10/10
There is a main female character that want nothing to do with the main male at the beginning, but are curious about the personalty of said male. Through out the story line, the characters grow closer and are in odd situations. Also, the side characters included provide humor that helps make it an enjoyable casual watch.
Both the main female protagonist are tsundere and both the main male protagonist are good at everything and shows a lot of affection towards the main female protagonist.
They are both romantic comedy series with funny peculiar characters.
- Both have a main boy that everyone is afraid of but in reality he is very sweet and misunderstood.
- Both are shoujo with comedy.
These shows highly imply romance and humor. While Toradora obviously has a slower pace compared to Tonari no Kaibutsukun, both of these shows love in a peculiar way. One of the character is ecstatic while the other one aims for a "normal" life. It doesn't only revolve around the main characters though. The supporting cast also share the spotlight and have their own storyline that may affect the main characters' attitude towards them or even towards themselves.
-Characters in both series don't have many friends
-Shizuku and Haru became friends so they made many friends with other characters, and the same is with Taiga and Ryuuji
-Comedy style is very similar
Although Toradora have a slower pace than Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, they're both humorous and romantic. They're great anime to watch if you're looking for romance.
Both are great romantic comedies that will surely leave a smile on your face. Toradora has more drama and is the more serious show out of the two.
Both series are considered romantic comedies that has both of the elements:
Romance & comedy.
Additionally, both series has a strange female protagonist who falls for the main male protagonist. And speaking of which, both the male protagonist in the series are also strange but has a kinda heart.
Both series takes place at a school setting where all the drama takes place.
Both series also has some action that is employed in a comedic way.
Both romance between a delinquent and cold hearted girl
To me these 2 are similar in a sorta opposite way. In Toradora! Taiga is as adorable as a girl can be, yet she's the most short-tempered person in school, while Ryuuji looks like a yankee(apparently),but is one of the nicest guys you can find,with an extreme passion for cleaning. Meanwhile in Kaibutsu-kun, Haru is the kind looking short-tempered character, while Shizuku is the tough looking(she looks tough to me) girl, but its easily scared and has an extreme passion for studying(though she is a bit cold). Both of the girls are tsunderes.
Both are romantic comedies with reluctant protagonists and really cute side characters
Both are great romantic comedies. Toradora! gets more serious at the end but it still bring lots of laughs, even if it's laugh through tears :) Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is opposite, I maen there's more comedy but still it left this heartwarming feeling after you watch it. I recommend to check out both of them :)
I has a similar air about it, it's shorter and I know that when I finished Toradora and wanted something similar I found this to be a great follow up!
Similar main character feel with the girl but a spectacular show none the less. If you liked Toradora then you should at least give this a shot but really you should love this.
Toradora was absolutely the sweetest anime's I've ever seen. This anime was the first I saw of its kind. I was more into the action/thriller genre but I am totally converted to the romantic/comedy/slice of life genre. This anime surely made my top 5 list and I love it so much for how sweet and cute it is. I definitely recommend it to those who are looking for an anime of the genre I stated previously.
Though the Heroine of the Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is uncaring compared to KNT's heroine, the experience and story it portrays are extremely similar. Experiencing different feelings for the first time, learning to make friends, enjoying High School life to the fullest, etc...
Both anime have similar vibes to them. They're both cute romantically cute. Trust me on this one.
-Both animes are centered around comedy/romance
-Both are shoujo anime
-Both are school life
Awesome romance anime
Both guys are cool but in Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Yoshida Haru the main protagonist is pretty badass but not very good at making friends because he can be scary sometimes whereas Kazehaya Shouta has a lot of friends but he finds it hard to express his love.
If you liked one you should definitly watch the other! :)
The way the stories unfold, the way the characters develop in both the anime are pretty similar. Also the art works are pretty same. So anyone loving tonari no kaibutsu kun would love kimi ni todoke and vice versa!
Both have girl who was isolated but then learns the value of friendship
Both have the same genres - shoujo romance school
They have the same feeling between the main characters, development is goin faster than kimi ni todoke though
-similar animation style
-KNT has funnier animation though
-tonari's plot is more complicated than KNT
Both are about love and the struggles of blending in.
They are honestly just very similar in many ways...Both are romances, of course. There are also side romances as well as the one between the main characters.You will also like this series if you liked KAICHOU WA MAID-SAMA ~
• Both have girl who was isolated but then learns the value of friendship.
• They have the same feeling between the main characters.
• Both have the same genres - shoujo romance school.
Both girl protagonist do not have any friends at first and meets a guy who trys to get clost to them. They are charged my the guy who they soon fall in love with and by the new friends they meet along the way.
Basically, both stories are about a girl who distances herself from others (Shizuku does so to focus on her studies. Sawako does so because people are afraid of her) then suddenly, a certain guy (Haru for Shizuku. Shota for Sawako) befriends her and helps her open up to other people.
Both have some unique Romance style and comedy. And they both have they charm to entertain people.
If you're looking for hilarious, yet infuriatingly dense couples, both definitely deliver. While Tonari-no Kaibutsu-kun may be a bit more unconventional and has a better supporting cast, LoveCom is more traditional and has a main couple that constantly had me in stitches. They both have a good mix of heart and hilarity that definitely made watching enjoyable. Beware the roller-coaster romance that takes forever to go anywhere (but oh what a ride it is).
Also has that fun crazy hillarious love story vibe to it. I find that the drawing style is also similar.
Both shows have similar kind of humor. If one of these shows made you laugh out loud, then it's the vice versa.
These three are shoujo rom-coms that are about boy/girl liking someone else with a one sided crush but then over the space of the eps, the other boy/girl starts to like them back, they are all very well drawn, animated and have good plots! :)
These two series are considered romantic comedies that are lighthearted and presented in a way that is funny, entertaining, and amusing all the same time.
Both series features both a strange main male and female protagonist but as time goes by, they fall in love and becomes great friends.
Both series has romance, drama, comedy, and takes place at a school setting where other characters also plays their roles in the story.
Both series also has a similar lighthearted feeling.
•both are of the romance, comedy, shoujo, school life genre
•both series dont focus only on the understanding of feelings, but the confession itself, and the progress after they confessed and how they end up together.
•both contain humorous, weirdly insane comedy that is far different than normal shoujo romance anime
•both anime series each contain a bunch of friends that add different personalities that compliment the protagonists and make more humour :P while facing rivals that come in later and disrupt the romantic flow.
•they are very similar in the heavy comedic with there outrageous outbursts, that are very funny indeed, aswell as the romantic/shoujo/school life way.
They both are super adorable rom coms. The main characters also take quite a while to realize that they both love each other
mmm...First of all both of them are shoujo anime.There is a lot of funny scenes in both anime ;>
Both series are romantic comedies and they keep getting closer by knowing each other better and accepting slowly their feelings for each other. Both series are focused in th male and female protagonist love, but also have really good comedy involved and good plot overall.
Both animes are separated from other conventional shoujos with interesting characters and brand new relationship dynamics.
If someone wanted to watch something I consider more satisfying, hilarious and romantic I'd definitely recommend Lovely Complex to them. The male main characters are the same. And though the story lines are different, yet, Lovely Complex has a satisfying ending.
This show has been getting similarities from toradora to soul eater. I would say the relationship of shizuku and haru is kinda similar to the one that haruhi and tamaki share in ouran high school except you make tamaki and rebel instead of a prince.
Ouran and Tonari no Kaibutsu kun are both romance/comedy animes. Both of these animes are one of the most hilarious romance animes that i have seen.
The characters are different although the main characters have quite a few resemblances. For example Haruhi in Ouran is a smart girl who is focused on her studies and a strange guy wont leave her alone, this is the same with Shizuku from Tonari no Kaibutsu kun, she is also a hard working girl fully focused on her studies and a very strange boy wont leave her alone. But even though these two main female characters are similiar in that aspect, they are both different in so many different ways. Also both the main guy characters are good-looking but although Tamaki is popular, Haru is seen as a dangerous person by everyone adn finds it difficult to fit in.
All in all, people who enjoyed Ouran will definitely enjoy this anime and laugh for sure. This anime also has more romance than the Ouran anime. So yeah, watch it if you liked ouran, i guarantee you'll love it.
It's romantic, and funny.
They both have some weirdness and fan-service, but both very good and awesome!
Both have cold, "uncaring" female characters who love to study and a funny, male love interest who rarely, if ever studies but does his own thing. Both parties (in both anime) can be quite naive which makes for funny misunderstandings (true shoujo trope at work). Great secondary cast in both
