Before you start thinking to yourself, "I.. um.. don't really enjoy goth-like anime. I should not watch it." DON'T! I swear, it's soo good, it'll will make you wanna watch it over and over. Well I honestly liked it but even so, you might watch it and say it's trash.
Where do I start? well, first of all, THERE ARE NO SPOILERS! I wish I could but it's better when there's mystery for you :3 (muaahaha)
The whole theme of this anime might seem Gothic and all dead related (which it kind of is, you'll notice how "kind of" after the first episodes) and maybe you are of those who like it, but I never liked that kind of stuff. So I didn't want to watch it at first. How did I ended up watching it? I GOT BORED. Yes. That's how I watched half of my anime list .__________. I do know I always end up judging a book by it's cover and damn it, I could've watch it earlier but didn't.
The story is honestly entertaining and different! I'll make this review shorter because I don't have to give too much detail. ITS DIFFERENT! not the same story where there's a girl and all the guys like her randomly because she's pretty and girly. No, not giving spoilers here! You'll see how this turns around but it's soooo funny and it has a goo develop throughout the anime. Characters have different personalities and well of course they might seem like other anime guys' ones but there aren't many left to create anyways.
It's not just a love/love story. It does have romance but how can I say it, it's like umm etoo.. not the kind you get jaded of.
It's funny, and it doesn't go into too much in detail about everyone's past life but there isn't much to go into anyways. As long as you understand how they became like that.
I enjoyed it a lot and I hope you do too. Watch it! I got hooked up after first episode xD love the heroine n__n
It's not every girl's story. For the weird (in a good way) kind! read more
Upon finishing this series, I just had to make a review of it :D
* Story *
I must say, even for a shoujo title, this story has a lot of originality as well as taking advantage of the same old clichés but with a twist. With Nabeshin as director, I couldn't expect any less, as he makes every episode hilarious! And it's nice to see the series has its serious and dramatic moments, and when you see them, you'll crave for more, seriously.
Sunako-chan is quite a character, and you'll love her from the getgo. She is a very special girl, and she suffered quite a lot from a mid-school drama. Be sure to pay attention to the series as this is revealed in the first episode and repeated a couple of times more, and it's the reason she locks herself to the world and considers everyone else a "dazzling creature", even though she's really beautiful behind that odd and scary exterior.
She doesn't have any confidence, and she constantly is having nosebleeds upon seeing beautiful people, so living in a house with 4 bishounen is not easy for her! Deep inside, she is very careful and fond of the people around her.
Kyouhei is a very rude boy and food is what drives his mind, and you'll find him very obnoxious, until you begin to see his true self, and he doesn't show it clear, so you'll have to keep an eye to find out! He'll begin to care for Sunako-chan as he sees her true self.
This is a comedy series, but it has its romantic touchs here and there, and of course some drama, but remember that comedy is what drives this series! So it's not your conventional shoujo.
* Animation *
Most likely a low budget was responsible of this: the animation was fair and dit the job, but could've been a lot better. The first opening video was made of recycled scenes from the first episode, and until eps. 14 we see a new opening video with original animation.
The series over emphasizes the use of chibi-formed characters, specially with Sunako. Even though chibi = funny and it's always appreciated, I think they overdid it with Sunako-chan, as we get to see her true form a limited amount of times.
* Sound *
The soundtrack was decent, and played along the theme of the series. The opening song was good, the first ending was passable, but the second ending theme (by BON-BON BLANCO) was very good.
The seiyuus for the series were excellent and they did a wonderful job with their roles.
* Enjoyment *
A 10 withouth a doubt, you'll laugh a lot, and even shed a few tears from time to time!
* Overall *
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge was a pleasant adventure from the start, and it's loaded with entertainment and fun, with hints of romance and even some drama. And if you happen to be a fan of Nabeshin (Shinichi Watanabe) then you're in for a treat.
I'd like to see a second season of the series, though, as the story continues. With the manga still running, it's a possibility we'll get to see more of Sunako-chan and the boys sometime!
8/10 -- Very Good! read more
Yamato nadeshiko shichihenge is a really good anime, I recommend it.
In my opinion, it's really good since the characters are realistic and they have distinct personalities. Their voice actors suit them. The story plot is amazing too, to get a girl change using the guys that live there free rent. Plus, THE FEEEELSSS, I understand exactly how the main protagonist feels her feelings are so realistic that I feel sorry for her even though shes a fictional character. The anime is really funny, I suggest you read the manga as well.
I don't think that I have any negatives for this anime, but I really wish Sunako has more chemistry with the characters and I wish it had alot of romance in it (because i'm so into romcom anime XD). I also wish for a season 2, ik it's too late for one, but I still need one ukjefnihwkejbfnekj! read more
Warning: the review may contain spoilers
The storyline itself isn't very unique and original. In fact, it greatly reminds me of Kimi ni Todoke, but we are talking about Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge here. This anime is a story of a transformation, friendship and being true to oneself. There are many repetitive elements in each and every episode (eg. nosebleeds, Goth~ Goth~ Loli~ Loli~ etc.) and sometimes you want to punch Sunako or the Goth Loli Sisters in the face. Anyway, it's still enjoyable to watch the guys trying to convert hard-core goth into a lady.
Only five words: it is not a masterpiece. You can watch it, but sometimes characters are missing its perfection, because you can see how they (especially boys) are getting more and more so-so. Awry eyes, plain hair and other details that make you crazy. Poor color palette makes this anime dim like Sunako. But from time to time one or two impressive effects occur.
10 for the soundtrack. Opening and ending songs are wonderful. Remaining music is also very assorted. The only disappointing thing is a voice acting. Kyohei is a beautiful man but sometimes his voice is hard to listen. It's the only thing I can't be objective about. However, Sunako voice actor is versatile so you can hear many different voices for many different Sunako personality features. "Average" is for the rest of the characters.
There are a few characters to choose your favorite from. Sunako is certainly the most interesting girl in the series. Boys are the same and different at the same time. They all have a particular back stories but share together a few things: beauty, humour and ladies. They are enjoyable to watch but not at the "falling in love" level.
The series is one of those that you start to watch and want to finish, but not in one sitting. It's suitable for a rainy days and peaceful evenings at home. Sometimes it makes you laugh and sometimes not.
It's a great series for a romance lovers (though the story ends before things between Sunako and Kyohei start to heat up) and a terrible choice for a psychological genre fans. Some things you may find lovely and other not so much. But there are things to chose from. read more
Like Noelle said, both shows have a reverse harem thing going on (where boys are after the girl). Not all the guys in Yamato Nadeshiko are after the girl, but it's close enough to be considered a reverse harem. Comedy, weird situations. You'll enjoy both shows.
both series have the same sense of humour, and the main characters also remind each others in both series. i find something similar in the plot also
One girl, with a lot of handsome guys. And it's not just a normal girl, in both the animes the girl is a bit abnormal, which makes the anime funny!
similar themes: one girl & many pretty boys, romance and comedy style also very close
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge aka The Wallflower is similar because they are both romantic comedies that deal with an unique girl having to deal with sexy guys. Both have similar comedy and situations between the characters. I actually read Wallflower manga thinking that it reminded me of Host Club then I tracked down the anime and watched it. If you enjoy Host Club you will love Wallflower.
Ouran High School Host Club and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge are both about sexy boys dealing with a girl whos like a guy
Both are similar, an unusual girl (Haruhi and Sunako) who coexist with a group of handsome boys, the difference will be that in ouran Haruhi have to be with them to pay her debt, and in Yamato Nadeshiko they have to be with her to have freee rent.
What could possibly be better for a girl than getting into some guys community. One girl, supposable stupid and obvious, few guys (more - better) as pretty as you couldn't even imagine. Here we go, this is shojo. But our todays guinea pigs are different. It's a total parody on all shojo cliches and many other things like date-sims, yaoi and so on. Better to watch first some classical stuff like Fushigi Yuugi, success guarantied.
Both Ouran and YNSH starts with typical and than crush all your hopes to predict movements. Prepare yourself for unstoppable laugh. Ouran is more delicate, YNSH hitting a raw nerve without hesitation. If you're shojo addict or smth like this try to bust stereotypes and than you'll definitely find those series amazing.
Comedy, A girl who doesn't fit in with the boys, Watch as the boys try to teach the Sunakol to become a young lady. If you loved Ouran High School you are sure to love Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Wallflower)...
The theme is the same. Both anime deal with a group of bishies around a girl. Male harem and comedy is also the theme of both anime. Although I liked OHHC much better but these two are very close in some ways.
The positive ways of rich families and the possibilities of it never to happen in reality. Still they both amuse in the impossibilities and the over-dramatical gestures.
Both are reverse Harems types. Though Ouran has more of a plot, both are very funny and are shoujo.
They both have a girl surrounded by guys
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is what would happen if Ouran High School Host Club has a baby with Kuragehime. While I think each one is enjoyable, I felt YNSH had more overall depth to it. While it's more famous counterpart may have NO trouble getting viewers, if you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend you watch Yamato Nadeshiko because it's SO funny and awesome!
it kind of has the same storyline about a girl surrounded by cool guys that are always together, its pretty much the same in a lot of ways
Take one unladylike girl, stick her with a handful of dazzling, charismatic boys, and fill in the leftover space with fast-paced, frenetic, occasionally absurd humour. The series take a very similar premise (an androgynous girl works off a debt to a host club by learning to become one of them, a group of dazzling boys attempt to reform their landlady's anti-social niece with free rent as their motivation) and take off running in opposite but equally hilarious and entertaining directions. Similar, but different enough to be fresh and funny instead of the same ol' thing.
Both animes are so funny in a similar way. High school stuff, ''hyper cool' boys and ''alternative'' girl in a lot of LOL situations. The characters are amusing and likeable. In both animes the characters get themselves involved in crazy situations and you really laugh your ass off!!! I find both really similar and both are definitely high recommended: you have to see them!!!
Both are comedy and contain one girl with bishounen boys. the relationship between Tamaki and Haruhi it is remind you in Kyohei and Sunako also in presentation the events are similar.
If you liked Ouran High School Host Club, you'll like Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge too. That is because both of them are about a girl that stays around a group of pretty boys. Together they are going trough a lot of funny adventures. I don't know how to put it, but I think that you won't regret! o.-
They are both shoujo and reverse harem. Also the protagonist female of both series undergoes a transformation. The series are also both comedies.
Both revolve around a reluctant heroine stuck in a group of hilarious bishonen in a sort of "reverse-harem" theme. In both they go through funny situations and the character interactions are very much alike. While there is more of a plot line in Ouran both anime share a very similar theme and comedy.
If you loved Ouran; you'll love Wallflower too! x
If you're into reverse harems, then these anime's are a few of those. Both anime's have their sets of bishounens to awe and dazzle the females and of course a main shoujo...a shoujo that's not beauty-conscious and disregards her appearance but would be very kawaii if only she knows and is willing to fix herself up...
These anime's will leave you laughing in your seat with their excessive humor and romance that you will really look forward to.
They are both fun to watch and revolve around an interesting girl who has to deal with a handful cute guys. You'll see some similar characteristics between the two shows when you watch. ^_^
Both feature the popular idea of the 'reverse harem' with the female main character spending all her time with the male counterparts. Both the female protagonists are similar in that they are indifferent to the boy's charms and are forced into spending time together. Haruhi (Ouran) broke the expensive vase so she has to serve in the Host Club - Sunako (Yamato Nadeshiko) is sent to her aunt's house where four boys live free of rent, only if they can turn Sunako into a beautiful lady.
both the girls here are surrounded by handsome and pretty boys (reverse-harem)...
and a bit of comedy and romance...^_^
One girl surrounded by hot or cool guys. All guys care for the girl so much. The girl in both stories are very lucky. :) Both stories are very funny. Hope you like it! :)
1) pretty boys 2) crazy and outlandish characters and storylines 3) maybe it's a bit insane but it does have a really good theme at it's core
Ouran High School Host Club and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower) may appear different on the surface, but when you start watching, the two series really do have a lot in common. First is the fact that the main, female protagonist is forced to be around an attractive group of men. Although Haruhi, from Ouran, and Sunako, from The Wallflower, act different, they share the same "not a typical woman" kind of personality.
The basic idea of the story is similar as well, but other than that, the stories are pretty different. Because of the difference characteristics of the male protagonists, the story doesn't match very well past the main idea. Overall, the series have the same feel and basic idea for female protagonists. I'm not saying the viewer will love both of them, but if you like one, the other does deserve at least a look.
both are quick-paced comedies about a group of charismatic guys trying to help an atypical kind of girl.
They both are great reverse harem. There is also some similarities in character.
Both have the great humour and bishounens
Hilarious yet can sometimes have more serious moments.
Reverse Harem and unusual heroin
Both have very similar humor and a lot of strange things going on such as crossdressing and awkward moments. They both focus on a girl who is surronded by gorgeous boys but doesn't get all excited about it like most girls would. Plus both have Vic Mignogna!
They're both Reverse Harem animes, only three continuous female characters, two of which don't appear much at the beginning. Both comedy, both animes where the leading female and the leading male seem to have crushes on each other, just in this case, they don't know it. YNSH is a lot darker than Ouran HSHC, but they are both still very cute.
Both deal with a set of beautiful boys trying to help out one girl. In each case a new girl arrives and they help her. Both are absolutely hilarious. in ouran its about a girl who transfers to an academy but she is mistaken for a boy. In the Wallflower the main girl is seen as scary and creepy. Both have goals to turn the female into a beautiful women.
Its a must watch anime both, hilarious.
wehn ever i watch yamato it reminds me of ouran dey got the same story nearly and the four men are loved by all the girls same as ouran
A woman surrounded by beautiful men in a hilarious story.
Both series have female protagonists surrounded by beautiful men and they are both school comedy and romance. Even though i like Ouran High School Host Club more, if you enjoyed The Wallflower, you really should watch Ouran High School Host Club.
these two titles both include the genre "bishounen" (which means that an anime includes hot guys xD) but the story is different. the wall flower is basically about these attractive guys trying to change a girl in love with death,spirits,blood and ect into a lady while ohhc story is the there's a host club with a host thats really a girl trying to pay off the vase she broke. ^^
I was surprised this one isn't here yet
Well, in both anime the main heroine is surrounded by (hot) boys against her own will
The boys in both anime have a special 'type' (prince type, cute type, playboy, etc.)
In both anime there is a another girl close to the group (Ouran-Renge and Yamato-Noi)
Ouran High School Host Club and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower in English) both consist of a female main character that does not look their best, and good-looking male students trying to make them more ladylike. Though, the boys' reasons for trying to make the female more ladylike are different, both have romance as well as comedy, with a little bit of darkness at some point in the story.
YNSH and OHSHC are Harem. Both anime stars a girl who is slightly weird but is met by guys who are very good looking and try to improve the girl in a way or another.
They have the 'really pretty' male characters and the 'fragile but strong' main girl. It's basically the story of a girl that live with pretty boys, and in both of cases, the girl isn't a 'perfect lady', but likes to do the 'home service' and the boys try to make her become one.
Reverse harem shows that actually make an effort to capture your interest. Quirky heroines, over-the-top shenanigans, and ridiculous male characters allow both shows to rise above the negative connotations of the genre.
In both of these anime heroines fall into society of handsome men, which opens a great comedy plot.
*Both are reverse harems, have the typical pretty boy cast, and end ripping your expectations of an unoriginal plot and characters to shreds. Although I admit that The Wallflower (alternate name for Yamato Nadeshiko Schichi Henge) isn't as amazing as Ouran (my opinion), it is wonderful in its own way. So what are you still doing here? Go watch it!
This is very similar to ouran high school host club. it is toned down on the romantic side and amped up on the funny side. it almost goes too far in the whole cute guys side of things as is probs a bit embarrassing to watch with a group but is still absolutely enjoyable.
Both are reverse Harems with an out of place female character
the main differences is in Ouran they exploit the female's confusing appearance, whereas in Yamato they are trying to make the lead more feminine. Both leads are talented and quite pretty when they try. Both are surrounded by 'pretty boys'. I think I like Ouran a little better, except for the over-used banana peel gag.
The main female characters in both animes are pretty similar. Starting off with appearances, they both have that sort of hairstyle that makes them alike. When they go to school, students around, find them quite scary based on their appearances. The only things that are different about them is the fact that, Sadako is actually creepy at times to whereas Sawako is quite kind and sweet. They both have that awkward and shy personalities. They fall in love with boys who are considered good looking, super popular, and very well liked. Yamoto Nedeshiko Schichi Henge is more focused on comedy, compared to how Kimi ni Todoke is more romance.
Both of the female leads are considered to be creepy, but are actually just shy and awkward, but sweet. They are also in love with guys who are considered "out of their league"
Both of the lead female protagonist are like Sadako from the ring.
Also both of them are being looked down at because of how they look but that doesn't mean they dont know how to fight!.
Their strong characters come out when their friends are being looked down at; this attitude they both have comes out when the lead female meets the lead guy and her life suddenly changes for the better =3
Both animes deal with girls who have a scary aura to the students around them. It is about how they are ostrazied for being different, one through choice, (Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge), and one through the fact she is different and needs the chance to open up, (Kime ni Todoke). They deal with issues that suround the day to day life and has a somewhat gothic feel to them. The one difference is, Yamato exagerates the situation, while Kime is more realistic.
have you gotten around to watching kimi ni todoke? if not u so should its ~super kawaii
like a different take on wallflower/yamato nadeshiko shichi henge but sawako ie sadako is all pure sweet on the inside and loves girrly things but just cant help but be terrifying to her classmates and teachers ~pffft awesome and sunako nakahara from wallflower well shes pure hearted aswell but she revels in dark things and dark places and sunako has no intrest in making friends or being kawaii her loves are all sentered around what can only be seen as kowaii (>_<) both are awesome animes worth watching. *smiles*
Heroine is a sensitive girl but she have spooky apearance, so other people be afraid of her. She's in love with a boy, who is very popular.
And they have very cute chibi-versions.
A story about a girl who everyone is afraid of. Sunako and Sadako have mainly different characters and different reasons for being scary, but both, deep in their hearts, are really good girls and can be cute when try.
Also, they adore the biggest bishounen and happen to interact with them in various ways.
Those are so far the only similarities I've noticed. The story goes on in a totally different way.
girls that are gloomy but wanted to change.:)
and fun romance you'll surely enjoy!
Both of the lead female protagonist look like Sadako from the ring.
Also both of them are being looked down at because of how they look. They both turn chibi sometimes.
Both anime series have a girl who is self-concious and keeps to herself. Sawako, however, is much nicer, and actually gets over her fears and problems.
sadako sadako sadako
a girl thats people are afraid of
guy that people like
In both animes, there is Sadako-like main character who is eccentric and unsocial. We witness their character development as they try to socialize and make friends. But, while Kimi Ni Todoke is a romance anime, The Wallflower is on the comedy side.
they both have girls that are very similar in some ways and dont have any friends at the begining of the anime, but then they both, over time, become friends with other people.
While the feel and style of these anime are different, they both are about a girl who is often misunderstood by other people. In both stories the girl is viewed as creepy and through their experiences learns to change some parts of themselves while coming to accept others.
Weird, creepy girl falling in love with the popular guy
Kimi ni Todoke is similat to the wallflower because both girls are creepy.(in a sense). Both girls don't think there good enough. But at the same time one excepts there flaws and chooses to be that way, and the other wants to be help herself and be different
The Wallflower (YAMATO) really has the same type of main character--both kind of scary and creepy--but while the lead in The Wallflower embraces that, the lead in Kimi is just misunderstood. Overall, I found a lot of similarities between the two main protagonists that I thought could not be overlooked to make this recommendation.
Awkward girl, who even has similar appearance, and perfect guy.
the main role girls are both kind of scary
Both main characters are the same except the fact that Nakahara Sunako is actually creepy, scary and weird and Kuronuma, Sawako seems really creepy scary and weird but she is really sweet. Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge(wallflower) is more comedy then romance while Kimi ni Todoke is more making friends drama-ish and romance ♥
Both girl protagonist have appearance like sadako (long, sleek black hair) and have shy personality
Anime are very similar in terms of the main character, both like scary things, and both are trying to change
Both deal with girls who are scary.
Both have a popular guy who falls in love with them.
Both of the girls can cook really good.
Both have comedy and romance.
Both girls start as socially inept and are seen as creepy by their peers.
Both VERY similar. They both show chibi versions of the main character, both look very similar and both girls are very bad with people. However, Sunako (YNSH) wants to be left alone most of the time. Both of them have a great sense of dark humor as well, though YNSH is funnier. Both also have similar moods. Kimi Ni Todoke is more romantic.
Main female characters are surprisingly similar both as apperance and their interaction with the others. Both are labeled as 'freaky' by their classmates. In Kimi ni Todoke main female's tendency to darkness is a misunderstanding whereas in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, she was really into gothic stuff. So it will be a great experience for you to be able observe and compare the paths these two females follow considering that they have started from the same point.
Both animes have atypical heroines, especially for shoujo, with a "dark side" that lends towards humour. The Wallflower has more occultish elements though.
both anime has ultra cool and intelligent heroine, and both of them contains less romance than the other shoujo anime.(don't missunderstand me, it's still a shoujo anime which is good =)
Both series have got a LOOOOT of bishie, girl with an "original dark side" and to me, when Yahiro is thinking about Kyoku and Ren, he's somewhat like Yuki, Ranmaru and Takenaga when they talking about Sunako and Kyohei.
These anime are a veeeeery crazy comedy.
the same expressions drawing - in romantic-comedy way =)
Both female leads have devilish fantasies from time to time
Both tell a story about a a cinderella-type, cooking and cleaning loving girl with an evil aura, in a land of bishounens. Both are really good romance-comedies, though SB! is more of a romance and YNSH more of a comedy.
the style is similiar, both very funny and with a girl who can be really evil :D
In a way, these two animes are quite alike, but in another way they are different. If you like the humour, mood, and reverse harem in either of the animes, the other one is absolutely a must watch!
Both of them are very entertaining en heartwarming!!
Kyoko en Sunako are both a somewhat scary but are both lovable as you get to know them better!!Both deserve to be watched en both are certainly a must see!enjoy:)
it's both about a girl. that is thinking that she is not pretty enough.
the girl in Skip Beat want revenge because her first love say that she is nothing, so she want to win him , but in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is the girl uncertain about her appearance en want to be pretty.
The main characters remind me of each other. Also, they both can't stand a certain guy. I laughed hard at each anime, but both have their occasional touching moments.
Main character is an ugly girl that is made better by a superior man. Also, crossdressing.
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is like the older, more well developed sibling to Kuragehime. While I think both are equally enjoyable, I felt YNSH had more overall depth to it. There is also more comedy, however Kuragehime really held it's own and I found myself more attached to its characters, whereas I have trouble remembering many of Yamato Nadeshiko's chatacter's names. If you enjoyed one I would highly recommend the other, which, while I see the obvious similarities, I could not say for Paradise Kiss or Ouran Host Club. ...ok, maybe for Ouran... But seriously, watch Yamato Nadeshiko if you haven't yet because it's awesome!
A theme that runs through both of these Anime are females who fear pretty people because they don't feel they are worthy of each other. The girls that live at the establishment are also all otaku. And don't let jellyfish otaku turn you off either.
Both have as a protagonist that considers herself as "ugly" and is an antisocial girl with a weird obsession, and also doesn't like to go out of her house, while the main guy that is an outstanding beauty, starts helping her, while she tries to avoid him.
The main girls also share the fact that they have a "best friend" related somehow to their obsession: Sunako has Hirochi-kun (a skeleton), and Tsukimi has Clara, (a cute jellyfish).
Both are great comedies with hints of romance.
It also stars a girl who thinks she isn't pretty and a boy (or in this case boys) who is admired for his beauty who tries to transform her into a gorgeous girl. They have the same feel about them and they are both really funny.
-Both focus on the tension between people who are fashionable and beautiful, vs. those who are plain and ordinary. Also demonstrate the shallowness of judging people by their exterior, despite the fact that looking beautiful gives you power in society.
-Rich, fashionable main characters try to get the unfashionable ones to dress up and look stylish themselves.
-Our plain and ordinary main characters are (otakus) who are content with who they are and their hobbies. But they are scared to death of fashionable, beautiful people.
-Lots of scary women attack or molest the male characters, or generally make their life difficult because they're good looking.
Main difference is that Yamato has a LOT more comedy, and even has parody.
In both series the main characters have trouble getting a boyfriend because of their apperance and can't stand seeing beutyfull people.
Both stories about a girl becoming a princess.. at least at the beginning! As the stories go on, we discover that they are stories of girls being accepted and loved as who they are.
These are both stories about a "quirky" girl who finds her beauty. Or is forced to find it, which leads to interesting situations in both cases. They're both hilarious and have characters you won't forget.
They both have girls with terrible hygiene, and boys that help in the story. the wallflower is a lot more comical than the jellyfish princess(much more sweet). But the main male lead in princess jellyfish is a drag queen but both still kind of has the same story plot. I think they're both equally funny. You should enjoy watching both.
In Fruits Basket Tohru Honda live with Yuki Sohma and his family, while Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge, Sunako Nakahara is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys.
Both stories is about a girl surrounded by cute guys. It touches friendship, love, comedy, and slice of life. I find yamato nadeshiko more funny than fruits basket. Fruits basket has more drama than yamato nadeshiko.
Fruits Basket and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower) are very, very similar, at least on the surface. Each one has a main, female protagonist that lives with a group of men. Tohru, from Fruits Basket, acts very differently than Sunako, from The Wallflower, but they're thrown into a very similar situation. The main difference is Tohru went there on her own while Sunako was forced to live with them.
