Both about a guy who is forced into a marriage through a series of crazt events, and both are really funny with lots of comedy and cute girls as lead characters ;3
Same crazy setting where main character is stuck with an option of marrying (engaged) another girl or experience destruction. (...)
It's the exact same story with exactly the same characters who just look a little different.
it is almost the same in both stories there is a guy who find himself forced to marry a girl that he just met...
Seto no Hanayome is a MUCH better version of To-Love Ru. Both shows got similar theme, having the male protagonist get into a marriage that they know nothing about at first. Definitely will make you laugh like no tomorrow.
Guy is forced to marry a girl that he doesn't know. Girls are a little "strange" - San is a mermaid, Lala is an alien
Both are harems so obviously their are going to be crushes other than the main characters. In To-Love Ru Yukki was forced to be engaged after touching Lala's chest. In Seto, after seeing a mermaid's true form Nagasumi has to choose either marriage or death. Similar stories but Seto no Hanayome is WAYYY funnier.
Both involve a boy in school who get's unwillingly married to a girl who is not human. Both are full of humor and while To-Love-Ru is more provocative, Seto no Hanayome is just as good. To-Love-Ru revolves around aliens and Seto no Hanayome revolves around mermaids.
same story line... same... same....
loyal wife is very honor........
Very similar. Both series are about a school guy who's going to get married with the girl who is not really human. Extremely funny.
both deal with forced marriage
- Both anime main heroes meet non-human girls and are forced to marry them.
- Both need to deal with girl's families which are more or less hostile to them,
- Both anime are good comedies with CRAZY sense of humour.
Very similar: a magical girl - a mermaid, Fiancés stuffs and rivals
The beginning episodes presented new characters.
The main protagonist are far unlucky.
Both are pure service anime made for your amusement. Yes, there is harem as well as overly jiggly boobs. If you liked Rosario+Vampire, then you'll love Tu-LOVE-Ru, or otherwise. The female lead role both have lovely pink hair.
Same kind of harem comedy with a lot of ecchi and fanservice in it but absolutely nothing that can be considered story that took more then 5 minute to think of.
Both also havea pink haired female lead character.
So if you can enjoy one of them you'll probably also like the other.
They are both heavily ecchi oriented and with a bit of comedy added in. Both of the series focused more on the fanservice than on the story, which made the story very thin. They also have a pink haired female lead character.
They both have a boy in them who is loved by more than 1 girl and they are fighting over him.
They both have people fighting over the same person.Well in these cases, they have a group of high school girls fighting over one boy. They are both very funny, good story lines, and have really good endings. They dont just suddenly end like some others do. :>
Very Similar in feel and harem comedy. Both Girls have hot pink hair =)
They both involve a male that is constantly swarmed by females that long to be with him.
Moka-san's legendary vampire transformations and Lala's costume "dressforms" are similar, they both have pink hair and their personalities match.
You like stories that started from a "fated encounter" one day? Then look no further than this two harem, comedy, romance, and school setting centered series. The male protagonist of both series has this kind of encounter that changed their life forever. The main difference though is the scenario, one is that of a supernatural encounter and the other is an extraterrestrial-life encounter.
They both have awesome characters and funny/cute parts in the plot
Most of the girls in both these anime are not human and are from another area. The male protagonist are human and find themselves in a situation they are unable to get out of. The girls he meet are totally kawaii and it seems the male protagonist reached far within their heart in order for them fall in LOVE HIM WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT. The difference is the location they take place in.
• Both anime have jiggly boobs. ♥
• Both female lead have lovely pink hair!
• Both are harem.
To love-Ru (one of my top 3) is a story about a kid named Rito Yuuki who is desperately in love with haruna sairenji, later on in the first episode (spoiler) a girl named Lala from the planet deviluke teleports into his bath unexpectedly. now the similarities in these two shows comes down to a very fine line. both of the shows take place in highschool and in both shows the people (other then the main character) are aliens/monsters. both of these shows revolve around a shy, inept main character that doesn't know how to make up his mind to even save his life. i highly recommend watching To Love-Ru if you haven't already.
Very close, both of them have aliens and a lot of ecchi moments with a bit of action.
Both anime are echhi/harem with the basic premise of normal high school male living (by chance) with beutifull alien female. With a lot of gadzets.
They're both harem series with multiple types of girls liking the protagonist, who is very unaware of the situaion. Besides that, both of the main character girls are from space, big chested, wear tight space suits and have small helper(s). Both series have ALOT of fanservice as well as a somewhat similar art and story.
Both animes have a female alien coming from out of outer space witch stays with the main protagonist. They also both have amazing technology.
Sample Plot Same Genre Same Alien female main Character
they got 90% same like alien that comes from some were
the alien girl always sleeping on the male protagonist bedroom while naked
plenty of girls (harem)
same they love the male protagonist
same Plot ,
also same Alien Female main Character Boobsy , Tall , Foreign Like , No shamless while naked or doing ecchi things
A cute, flirty alien girl with a tail meets the male protagonist, with a tendency to whip out random alien gadgets. The main protagonist has a harem. If you like one, you'll like the other. Ecchi-comedy.
Its very very very similar , both have alien dropping by on the Earth and Staying in a Boys house , even sleeps together xD . they have same atmosphere and the main girl characters have tails xD .
Sudden alien / girlfriend appearance. Multiple girls that like the same guy, some of which are childhood friends.
It's like watching the same anime twice, a beautiful alien appears in both, and of course, falls in love with the main character, but maybe "To Love-Ru" is a bit more childish than "Asobi ni Iku yo", but both are pure awesome, if you liked "To Love-Ru", you will definitely like this as well.
Both have echi and a funny story...
- Alien girl sudden appearance
- Main male have some similar characteristic
Both the anime To Love-Ru and Haiyore Nyaruko-San ,Fearture the Main
Protagonist Meeting A Female Alien In a unique Way, Also both Series Features
Showing the Main Protagonist Ended Living together With a Female Alien and in
the Process Also Meeting Other Alien Characters
Both series have a peculiar but cheerful alien from another planet fall in love with the protagonist at first sight.
Both series features the parody and humor like theme with a main protagonist in strange situations.
An main "alien" girl is present in both series and there is a lot of humor involving the characters in every day situations.
There is romance but presented in a humorous way. Watch both series if you're in a mood for some humor and entertainment.
An alien girl falls in love at first sight with the male lead and freeloads at his house.
The characteristics of the male and female leads are very similar as well.
Both series have an a cute girl who happens to be an alien from outerspace. Both the main female leads are cheerful, happy, funny, and always makes the situation more exciting. They both also try to develop their relationship with the male lead and wants him to like her.
The male lead of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san thinks of the female heroine to be annoying and avoids her advances but soon starts to develop romantic feelings for her later in the series.
The show has a lot of comedy, parody, and development of romance. If you like cute alien girls then this show is meant to be for you.
P.S- Rie Kugimiya the voice actor for Louise ( The Familiar of Zero ) , Taiga ( Toradora ) , Shana ( Shakugan no Shana ) is also a voice actor for one of the other heroines in Haiyore! Nyaruko-san.
Both series have a strong alien female and a weak guy who wants nothing to do with her and both guys get into constant trouble because of them.
Both animes have a female alien coming from out of outer space witch stays with the main protagonist. They also both have amazing technology.
It seems that both animes copied each other. Both anime containing a main character who has big boobs, is from outer space, and live to make the main male character happy, only to ruin his life. Also, the main male characters in both animes can be described as indecisive and extremely ignorant, which sometimes makes you think "why are you even with him?" Bottom line they are harems, sexy, and funny.
Similar origin of female protagonists. Both have super powers to grant wishes of male protagonists. Both are ecchi series.
Very similar Ecchi and Harem series. Both have an indecisive main character (Tomoki / Rito). Both have a busty girl who comes to "ruin" their lives (Ikaros / Lala), and both fall in love with the main character. Both series mix "religious" and supernatural thematic (Angeloid= Angel Droid / Deviluke= Devil Alien). Both series involves a conflict against an evil powerful leader (Master of Synapse / Gid Lucion Deviluke), who wants back to the main female character in her respective place of origin.
To me, both series are perfect for a crossover.
-Guy who meets girls from an another planet
the similarities between the two are pretty evident if you seen both of them. they both have hot alien chicks they pop out of nowhere and get caught up with a guy. also, both male characters end up having most of the women characters like him.
the plot and genre are what's similar but the characters themselves are pretty different.
Same style of ecchi/comedy anime of a guy who meets an alien
Both have an attractive Alien girl and a guy living under one roof
both have bits of ecchi..romance..comedy..sci-fi..great to watch
Both are realy good to wach animes. Both have certian charm to make you wach it. WARNING: if you wach episodes 1,2,3 and 4 in one day you will be hoked to them as for they have similar plot and are very hilarious
the main plots are very simmilar, the bigest differance is in the main characters. in To-Love-Ru the main character is shy and in-experanced with girls. but in Urusei Yatsura the main charater thinks of himself as a lady killer.
Crazy alien chick? Pervyness? Yep, we've got 'em both.
Somewhat similar stories as well.
Both series also can tend to give the feeling, "yeah, this doesn't seem like it will get anywhere, but WHATEVER! :D"
To-LOVE-Ru has the same EXACT story setup at the beginning. Guy has a girl he likes who also likes him, alien princess comes from outer space, alien father could destroy the earth if he doesn't stay with her, etc. You could say that Urusei Yatsura is the origin of this type of story.
Both stories involve a lead female character who is a beautiful alien that becomes the fiance of the male lead character through some misunderstanding even though the male lead has his eyes on another girl.The alien girl also loves spicy food and sometimes tries to use machines with disastrous effects.
A normal guy falls inlove with an alien girl. These girls don't know much about the planet Earth so they do some weird things while living at there "lover" place. Even through the guys don't have parents living at there house, so both of these animes are very similar...
Ecchi + Aliens + Shy Main Character + comedy = very similiar.
The meet in when a naked girl appears out of nowhere in his bath-tub just like in the anime "girls bravo" and she want to stay on earth and have the boy all to her self and she is not human its the same kind of story in some ways but you can also cal it different...
They both have a girl from a strange planet appear out of nowhere
They are both supernatural harems so they are similar in a lot of respects. The characters parallel each other and in both series, the male lead is forced by the father to marry his daughter and become the heir to a throne. Great mixtures of comedy and relationships.
Both are Supernatural & harem.
And the guy is forced to make a decision of who he loves.
Rito from To Love Ru has to make a choice between two girls, Haruna, a normal human girl and an alien, Lala. There are other girls who love him who have yet to confess. On the other hand, Tsuchimi Rin from Shuffle faces a similar situation, he has two new girls introduced in to his life who are both non-human beings and wishes to marry him. He, in similar aspects to Rito, is a candidate to beautiful non-human being girls and is loved by several other girls in his school.
Some of aspects that make these two different are:
1. [spoiler]To Love Ru was specifically aimed especially to merely entertain its viewers with perverted scenes. To Love Ru makes a very excellent comnedy. On the other hand, Shuffle develops its plot and the charcters by allowing the viewers to become sympathetic towards Nerine, Sia, Kaede, Primula, and Asa, by peering into their pasts, making Shuffle a dramatic anime.[/spoiler]
2. [spoiler]To Love Ru was set whereasin the charcters are intereacted human to aliens, but Shuffle was developed so that the demons, deities, and humans interact one another. Note: Some people will find it awkward that the female characters who are demons and gods alike look as attractive as humans do. Personally, I found it a bit difficult to accept the fact that Nerine, a HELL princess, was really beautiful because in many cultures, demons are ugly and detested. [/spoiler]
These are two great harem anime I think, (i personally have played the hentai game of shuffle!). The animation is really great in To LOVE-ru. Also there is another version of To LOVE-ru that is apparently closer to the manga.
someone from space land on earth
female protagonist fell in love with the male protagonist
-Alien female protagonist
-Ordinary male protagonist
-Some romance elements - Specifically, love triangles
-Both alien female protagonists initially try to hide their identity as aliens
-Some comedic elements
-To Love ru has A LOT more fan service
-Ano Natsu is more serious and focused on the romance element
-To Love ru has a more harem-based approach, whereas Ano Natsu focuses on love triangles/squares/pentagons/etc.
-Ano Natsu has more of a progression in plot than To Love ru. To love ru's plot is relatively unconnected - if you skip a few episodes, you haven't really missed out on any plot.
Both are about a alien girl who comes to earth and falls for a average guy and both have forces trying to bring the girl home and both have the guy fighting for her and both are Harrems(Ano natsu is not as much of a harem as To love-ru).Ano natsu de Matteru is more of a drama/slice of life and can be somewhat slow at times where To love-ru is a ecchi/comedy which can be overwhelming at times but overall both are enjoyable.
Both are ecchi harems with a lovely pink haired girl as the harem leader.
♫same genres (Comedy, Ecchi, School, Harem, Romance)♫
almost the same traits and looks:
♫Deviluke, Lala Satalin/Hazelrink, Charlotte♫
♫Sairenji, Haruna/Fujikura, Yuu ♫
♫To-LOVE-Ru focuses on more comedy while Princess Lover! focuses on more romance♫
I believe between that the two series are similar because Rito(To Love-Ru) and Teppei (Princess Lover) are the main protagonists. Those two individuals were force into marriage and have trouble with girls. I believe those two have different affairs and different personalities. If you like To Love-Ru you'll like Princess Lover.
Both female protagonist are beings that are not human. The comedy in them is similar from time to time and the females are both kind of dim witted by the unfamiliarity of the human world
Both shows are harems featuring girls who appear supernaturally. Both female leads (Lala-sama and Nagi) have similar personalities and both are voiced by the adorable Haruka Tomatsu.
But while To LOVE-Ru goes for those over the top hilarious ecchi situations and comedy, Kannagi focuses on more subtle(though just as frequent) comedy, slapstick, and ecchi. Furthermore where TLR is "sci-fi" featuring aliens etc. Kannagi is "paranormal" and has godesses and spirits...However BOTH shows have more to do with awkward, pervy, and hilarious situations than aliens or ghosts, and if you liked one show, you'll like the other
Both have alien girls who fall in love with human guys, and both girls are involved someway with a Galatic government.
Both of these anime are similar that the main heroine in them has arrived from other planet. On the Earth it meets and falls in love with the boy. And as besides the guy gets set of new friends and girlfriends. And because of it some other heroines start to dislike it. :)
In general in these anime there are still more many similar characters and the various situations occuring to them.
Both are comedic and involves aliens races trying to live on earth.
Though "To-love-ru" centers on love struggles of a human protagonist,
Level E is about aliens living out their lives without disrupting human society.
Both main male characters are surrounded by well endowed women..
both titles are mainly focus on harem. except that highschool dxd are demons while to love-ru are both aliens and humans
So here's how the two are similar:
- Both shows have aliens in them. (Nyaruko and Lala Satalin Deviluke)
- Both shows have male characters who are somewhat tsundere-like to the female character.
- Both shows are hilarious. (Although I like "Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W" more)
- Both shows are somewhat ecchi-like. (Actually To Love-Ru is ecchi)
If you love to laugh a lot, then you're gonna love "Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W" or the prequel "Haiyore! Nyaruko-san."
Men are from earth and hot sexy babes to fall into your laps are from space. Tenchi is older than To LOVE-Ru, but the themes are similar. Both MC's are clueless about the feelings of the aliens have for them and the heroines of both shows are of royalties too. Both fall for the protangist for unknown reasons and everyone (girls that is) in the universe wants in on the party. Lucky guys.
Another Harem with a more serious tone to it. Still lighthearted in places and fun, but generally it's not as silly as To-Love-Ru. Great to watch if you enjoyed the Harem aspect of To-Love-Ru.
If you loved To-Love-Ru then you'll love K-On too.
K-On has a great sense of humour and and has a lot of kawaii moments, if you thought LaLa was funny wait until you meet these girls.
K-On is the only anime I really laughed at and enjoyed properly since To-Love-Ru.
To-LOVE-Ru and Rosario + Vampire Capu2 are based on a harem of girls who aim their love towards a weakling of a guy. The girls in both series also have supernatural powers, too. Plenty of ecchi moments, also. I'm sure if you enjoy one, you'll enjoy the other.
While one deals with outerspace aliens, lots of ecchi and humor and the other one deals with swimming humans and lots of ecchi and humor.. there's not much of a difference in it. But the animation in Umisho is on a higher level than the one in TLR, the story's are different but characters deal similarities.
Unfortunate main character getting in trouble because of the girls surrounding him
Also he's always unable to confess his love to a shy girl
Golden Darkness and Fate Testarossa are very similar characters; you may feel as you're watching another story about this mysterious blonde girl. TLR have lots of ecchi and is for a bit older viewers but MSLN is for all age. Golden Darkness is probably based on Fate Testarossa because To Love-Ru have a lot of parody elements, not only Magical Girls.
