The story centers around Yuuto Ayase and his classmate Haruka Nogizaka. While Yuuto is rather ordinary, Haruka is very attractive, intelligent and rich. Due to this, she is the school's most unattainable girl and is so idolized that her classmates give her the French nicknames "Nuit Étoile" (The Silver Star of the Night) and "Lumière du Clavier" (The Shining Princess on the Piano). One day, when Yuuto goes to the school library to return a book, he stumbles across Haruka and her darkest secret—she is a diehard fan of anime, manga and the otaku culture. Yuuto promises to keep her secret hidden and the two become close friends. Yuuto does his best to help Haruka with her secret hobby while developing his relationship with her.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is the most fun and just plain entertaining series I have watched this year. I don’t like to throw out 10s to shows that often and maybe I am rating this show a little high in comparison others. But this is one of the few shows that had me from episode 1 and never let me down through the end. While the overall concept of this anime is not anything new and groundbreaking (though really what is anymore?), Nogizaka does everything exceptionally well.

At its heart, Nogizaka is a romantic comedy with some mild echiiness and a few harem elements. read more

You know, for all the internet rage I've heard that this show is "Too much Otaku wish fulfillment", it failed to fulfill my wish of being entertained. ZONG! And now, ladies and germs, the actual review:

Actually, I wouldn't argue that the problem with this show is that it's a substance-less, extra generous heaping of Otaku wish fulfillment as some claim, because let's face it, KissxSis and Chocotto Sister REALLY have no critical quality to them, and instead only show me just what I want to see, and yet I'm still entertained by them. No, instead, I find that there are three major problems that read more

I don't even know how anyone managed to write a story with such a fun-sounding plot and theme(similar to Oreimo, one of my favorite series), but make it so boring. This is one of the most painful series I've watched. Each episode is a battle, a long and strenuous walk through an enormous desert. It's about as fun as writing a twelve-page essay on the history of toilet paper. I, personally, am a huge fan of anime, figure collecting, et cetera, and though the characters' trips to Akihabara and Haruka's interests seemed like a promisingly exciting adventure at first, it wasn't. I'm currently, after a read more

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu
Nogizaka Haruka No Himitsu is an anime about two people from different classes. On one hand you have Yuuto Ayase who is average and plain in every way, and on the other you have Haruka Nogizaka who is rich, famous pianist, and the most popular and sought after girl in the school. These two cross paths in a set of unlikely coincidences at which time Yuuto discovers a deep dark secret which could crush the popular lifestyle of Haruka. Haruka is an otaku. To Haruka’s relief Yuuto, though average, is a very honest and caring person and read more

In both anime a 'perfect' girl hides her anime-otaku hobby and is discovered by the male protagonist (Nogizaka: classmate, OreImo: Brother) who will support her and start exploring the subculture.

Both series have a guy discovering a girl's secret and trying to protect that secret, while also growing closer to the girl as the story progresses. Both are predominately Romance Comedies.

I'm surprised know one recommended this one. Two ordinary guys find out the secret of a high class family and eventually become friends with the girl and her maids or butler. Both shows has loads of comedy and humor.
