Characters & Voice Actors
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
I thought that the story was actually quite original. At first I thought that it would be your usual story. They try to change her and then they fall in love and then love rivals appear and some comedy is thrown in but that didn't happen in the slightest, which I thought was quite refreshing. I do wish that focused a little bit more on the relationships with each other, especially Sunako (Main Character).
Some people may not like the artwork but I thought that it went quite well with all of the characters personalities and I also really liked the way that they changed their style of artwork depending what was happening (or going to happen), and it makes it alot more funny and entertaining.
The sound was good, in the beginning I didn't like the opening song but it grew on me during the series and it fitted to the anime perfectly. I didn't like the first ending song but I liked the second song because it was a contrast to the opening.
I liked the characters because usually when you have bishounen and bishoujo in an anime they usually are totally oblivious to it or they use it to their advantage. None of that happened here (except for one character). I must say some characters were a bit annoying and you may want to slap some of them. This anime is partly interesting because it shows that all of them are actually suffering from being so good looking, which is very different. It shows a different point of view of being a good looking person.
I thought that it was really funny and that was a surprise to me because I thought it would not be a very normal emotional story but it was nothing like that. I thoroughly enjoyed each episode because something outrageous alwayse happened in each one.
Overall I give it a 7/10 because it was really entertaining and a good watch although I wished a bit more happened between the characters and I was personally disappointed with the ending episode. I hope there is a second season! 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
They are both about pretty boys and a girl whos kinda like a boy.
They're similar in a sense
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
they have a very similar story.
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.
Both are Comedy and have some romance in it
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
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.-
Not exactly the same, but we still got school life, slice of life, humor and a little bit of love story ^^
They are both shoujo and reverse harem. Also the protagonist female of both series undergoes a transformation. The series are also both comedies.
both are reverse harem
with pretty male characters
Quite similar plot, main bishounens are blond . OHSHC and YNSH are really enjoyable!
Reverse harem! ^^
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
both are reverse harem romantic comedy ..
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...^_^
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.
very good comedy;
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.
If you love Comedy/ Reverse Harem Animes, this is a good one for you!
-Humble leading lady [or shall I say female to be more precise?] who does not care about her looks (Haruhi.......Sunako)
-Group of [rich] handsome men (OHSHC......guys living with Sunako)
-An amusing story
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.
Main characters very similar, with kind of the same interests.
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.
Main heroines are shy and scary. School, romance and comedy.
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 ♥
Anime are very similar in terms of the main character, both like scary things, and both are trying to change
Both girls start as socially inept and are seen as creepy by their peers.
