Both are shoujo anime, feature a love build up between characters and lots of comedy in between.
Both have Introverted female protagonists with a guy who's tries to connect with her. Similar drama, and comedic moments!
Both are incredibly similar in plot and characters. Sukitte is pretty much the poor man's Kimi ni Todoke.
Awkward girls meeting popular boys and overall changing in the process.
Both series are about a girl who don't have real friends and falls in love with the most populair boy of the whole school.
Mei might not really resemble Sawako because Mei does it on purpose and Sawako doesn't but it's the same feeling.
Yamato and Shouta remind me of each other.
So I guess if you know one of the two that you would love the other!
- Mei & Sawako are misfits.
- Yamato & Shouta are popular among the girls.
- Shoujo titles
- Romance & Drama
- School theme
- Similar story
The guy is popular with girls but he doesn't go for the most popular girl.
Though in Sukitte li na yo things move a lot faster and the guy is not as shy as in Kimi ni Todoke.
If you ejoyed Kimi ni Todoke, you'll surely enjoy this one.
Awkward Girl meets Popular Boy.
Popular boy finds Awkward girl interesting.
These two anime are quite similar...
Mei and Sawako: Both are outcasts and are ignored by other students until a popular boy comes along to changes their situation. They fall in love with the boy.
Yamato and Shouta: Both are popular and well liked by both genders, but they both have flaws that most people don't notice.
Many problems come flowing around but in the end their bond stays strong.
Both anime are about the main female character opening up to people, making friends, and falling in love. In both anime the main male character befriends the main female and they fall in love. Both main male characters are cool, handsome, the most popular boy in school, and have many girls in love with them. Both main female characters were alone and had no friends until they befriended the main male character and both slowly begin to open up to people because of this friendship.
Well, it's hard to not think about these two series when watching either one tbh.
Kimi ni Todoke and Sukitte Ii na yo are two bittersweet both romance series that has drama written all over it. We have the popular guy at a school setting in both series who has many friends and admirers. Then, we have the unpopular girl who is plain and lacks friends. But one day, she meets that popular guy and they form a special bond.
Both series has comedy, drama, romance, but also some emotional moments.
Both Series are Shoujo anime where a popular guy going after a rather antisocial girl......over all Kimi ni Todoke and Sukitte Ii na yo are incredibly similar, so if you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other one.
I find the characters quite similar with each other.
Kazehaya Shouta with Yamato Kurosawa, them being the oh-so-popular guy in school, giving off the 100% refreshing feel. Girls are head over heels on them. And both are attracted to this introverted, not so popular, unsociable type of girl, (Sawako Kuronuma and Mei Tachibana)
The antagonist on both series are similar as well. Ume Kurumizawa and Megumi Kitagawa. They both act sweet and friendly with everyone but those are not their true intentions. They get too jealous to the main female lead to the extent that they're willing to spread fake rumors to ruin them, and in order to get the attention of the main guy.
The flow of the plot from both series is pretty similar. Both giving off the fluffy fluffy feels.
both are the typical shoujo, romance, comedy, school setting anime
both have an awkward/shy/unsocial/ young girl who attracts the popular boy in the school
both main girl protagonists are not the same, one chooses not to make friends, the other wants friends
both have the popular boy, falling in love with them, and slowly the girls develop/understand/learn/grew attached to the popular boy in some way or another
both girls develop and grow throughout the anime, making new friends, rivals, the usual etc...
the pace of the development of feelings is hugely different, in Kimi the whole anime is about confessing and understanding, while in Sukitte its revealed in the first couple of episodes.
sukitte feels more mature in a way, than kimi ni todoke,
similar with the typical unpopular girl that attracts the most popular guy, shoujo genres, etc...
The female protagonist is a little different and mostly misunderstood while the male is popular, out going, friendly and good looking all in one.
In both series main character is very shy, quiet and introvert person and her opposite is a boy she fell in love with. There is romance, school and great atmosphere.
1) both girls with no boyfriend experience or nor friends
2) both popular guys falls for her
The popular guy falls in love with the girl who has no friends. But, Sukitte Ii na yo. is a bit more rushed with the feelings.
- Art style.
- Story progression
- A shy girl getting a relationship with the most popular boy in school.
- The support characters is quite similar.
In my opinion, Kimi ni Todoke is still fairly better than Sukitte li na yo in all ways.
Both anime have similar art, and the character are also rather similar. Mei and Sawako are very similar in that they are both somehow misfits, but Kurosawa is not as shy as Kazehaya. It's a very sweet and heart racing anime.
Both are about a girl who's introverted and has no friends because of some particular reason, the guy is popular with everyone and he's the one who likes her, not her who at first likes him.
I guess from what I've seen until now the difference is that Sawako is trying to make friends while Mei doesn't want that.
Both are romances with a quiet girl, a well-liked guy, and lots of misunderstandings. They are both sort of frustrating, in a way.
-popular male lead, outcast female lead
-both female leads remain confused about their relationship to the male throughout the series
-animation style of both anime is very similar
-KNT however, is more lighthearted and comical than sukitte.
Both these series contain similar situations with the characters. In both series, a very popular boy is attracted to the main character. Both are similar romance stories.
A girl who has no friends encounters the most popular boy in highschool, from then on a relationship forms. Both girls are not open, and not good at making friends, seen as weird by most people. Male protagonist is very kind and truely loved the girl, many obstacles to overcome as relationship builds. Sukitte is much faster Paced and has an overall better plot/art/charectars and if youve seen kimi ni todoke you MUST watch this its just a much better version.
Most popular guy in school falls for a girl avoided and friendless. shoujo ^^
This is a similar anime mostly because there's a huge romance layout with problems and resolutions.
Mei and Sawako: both are outcasts and they scare other students. They both are ingnored though by other students until a popular boy comes along and changes their situation.
Yamato and Shouta: Both are popular and well liked by both genders, but they both have flaws that most people don't notice.
There's also girls in both anime that make their relationship close to ending, but the couple in both of these anime stay strong.
- Both have very un-popular female main characters
- Both have a very attracting male main characters
- Both have 2 female friends who help her through situations.
Both have a similar initial set up: misunderstood/anti-social girl helped by the most popular guy around. Kimi ni Todoke, however, does it smarter and better. The stories strikingly similar, but one will find this one to have better development and a more satisfying ending. If you liked Sukitte Ii na yo, I can guarantee you'll enjoy Kimi ni Todoke.
The story in these 2 animes is almost the same.
The main character is a girl without any friend, and who doesn't wabt to make any friend because her feelings were hurt in the past.
In both animes, the most popular guy in the town, and the idol of the school fall in love with these girl, and then he try to make her love him and socialize with others.
Soon te girl fall in love too with the boy but she never say: i love you, just in her heart.
The boy is sorrounded by pretty girls, and soon his best friend fall in love with his girlfriend.
If you're searching for a good romance with a ot of kisses, then you can't miss this anime.
Same plot basically, characters are alike, Kimi ni Todoke focuses on before relationship, Sukkite Ii na yo focuses more on building good relationship
These series both really touch your heart. They both give you a heartwarming feeling, but on another note could also make you cry. If you are a rom-com lover, be sure to check these out!
They both have:
-an amazing love story.
-some drama, but just the right amount.
-the main girls were both bullied.
-the main guys helps the girls to live their life to the fullest.
if you love one, most likely you'll adore the other.
Both Kimi ni Todoke and Lovely Complex both deal with a very awkward love between two individuals that progresses very slowly. And during the show, the side characters support the two main characters and have their own little romantic dramas. The characters and style of the show feel very similar, even though lovely complex is a little more comedic than Kimi ni Todoke,both have their funny moments...Sawako and Risa make the most interesting facial expressions!
As much as the characters are very different, they share the common theme of being really clueless in romance. Girl likes boy, meets rival(s) for boy, troubles of teenage life, and the jokes that come with them.
LoveCom is more comedy driven than KnT, but KnT made me cry more than LoveCom ever did. Either way, both are highly recommended anime.
Quite similar in many ways.
Similar character setups (different designs/personalities) for the most part. Girl and main guy, and girl's friends and their guy/boy friends
Main characters are contrary of themself. In KnT the girl is very sad and in unlike, closed for other. Main boy is opened for others and very happy and symphatic. In Lovely Complex there is a man with complex because he is low height and a girl with complex because she is high height.
They both have and funny and serious moments.
KnT is a bit better, but LC is not bad at all
The style is very similar. And I don't mean artwork style, but story-telling style.
Lovely Complex has a lot more comedy, but Kimi ni Todoke substitutes that by many heartwarming moments. By the end of both shows, you'll feel like missing something.
Lovely Complex is Kimi ni Todoke with guts.
High school dating theme.
Similar art style.
Both anime are high school romance comedies, with one of the protagonists in love with a clueless friend. It should be noted, that the "chemistry" between leads is somewhat diffrent in both shows.
They both had a really similar feel to me. They both get serious sometimes, but they lighten up the mood with funny out bursts. And they both also have the exaggerated drawing styles at some points to make you smile :P
Excellent humor, romance, tricky cases the main characters, funny faces (in a good sense of the word)
That is why both animeshki advise to look! ! !
We can say that, there are similar main characters: in one case a girl like the main heroine of the call, so all afraid of it (and it is not wanted it), in another case, the girl is tall and she could not find a guy above his head ^_____^
And then there are guys and starts)))
P.s. Please do not be confused with Bokura ga ita, as snot and romance - a different meaning ! ! !
Превосходный юмор, романтика, каверзные случаи главных героев, смешные гримасы (В хорошем смысле слова)
Именно поэтому обе анимешки советую посмотреть ! ! !
Можно сказать, что здесь похожи главные героини: в одном случае девушка похожа на главную героиню из звонка, поэтому все её бояться (а ей то не этого хочется), в другом случае девушка высокого роста и она не может найти себе парня выше головы ^_____^
И тут появляются парни и начинается)))
P.s. Прошу не путать с Bokura ga ita, так как сопли и романтика - разный смысл ! ! !
Both are equally as frustrating to watch, this is just a bit more rewarding though.
It's both very cute and lovely. It makes you hyper to watch. It's both about a "difficult" love.
If you liked the highschool romance, and drama, you should enjoy both these animes
Both are love stories, with very likable characters and comedy! Kimi Ni Todoke has more drama, and LoveCom has much more comedy, but they both are precious stories that you won't want to miss.
Both are humorous but get emotional towards the latter part of the series. In both series the main two characters are heavily influenced by the way their peers view them. All around good feeling!
Both feature an extremely awkward love and the protagonists' story as they become closer.
Lovely Complex is similar to Kimi ni Todoke by the genres. They're both amazing anime! Both romance and school life genres. These two anime are like my favorite anime of all time I loved it! They both have opsticals to get the guys they love which keeps it interesting. I'm a sucker for school life romances they are my favorite genres and I love them both. I think if you love Kimi ni Todoke then you will love Lovely Complex! Its a great comedy/romance/school life anime!
Love, so much love!! Both progress very slowly though
Both series are lighthearted and sweet stories of romance, friendship, and trials.
Both series has a similar art style, mood, setting, as well as some slice of life themes.
Both series' romance plot contains trials, misunderstandings, but also forgiveness based on understanding.
Both series also contain emotion occasionally but mixed well with romance, comedy, and drama that defines the young people's lives as students at the time of their puberty.
Romance stories, loveable characters.
They are both just really nice anime if you don't want to watch that much drama.
Misunderstanding between the couples,
Male is popular with the females
Female doesn't really know much about males,
In Lovely Complex the guirl is taller then the guy and in Kimi ni todoke the girl doesn't talk much and is very shy
Both are similar in the highschool romance way, and the main girl cries alot >.>
both of the anime focus on romance between a guy and a girl, both anime portray different circumstances and surroundings, as in lovely complex is a comedy romance filled with laughter and seriousness, while kimi ni todoke, focuses on the romance itself, and the many hardships both animes go through to be with their bf/gf in the end.
both encounter rivals, hardships, drama, as always included in the typical shoujo romances
they both leave a light warm fuzzy feeling when youve completed the anime,
Both anime mostly revolve around love and friendship. In each anime, there are a few times where you might think they would get together or their feelings would finally be understood, but they are both filled with misunderstandings and moments where they could've gotten together, but didn't.
Also, in each anime, there is a boy and a girl that will interfere with their relationship, as well as criticism for the character's differences, whether physical or social.
They both deal with romance and unique relationships. In Lovely Complex, you see the relationship between a very tall girl with a very short boy. In Kimi ni Todoke there is also an awkward relationship between a shy girl and a popular boy. Both female leads also make hilarious expressions! ^o^
This two anime is so similar. Both are related to school-love, and friendship.
They are both slow passed and are about high school romance. Both of the couples are awkward and have weird things but combine them together. (Lovely complex has a huge height deterrence) (Kimi Ni Tokode they have completely different personalities.
These two has been neck and neck on the best romance rankings.......
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.
Both are slow developing romances, but leave large impacts on your heart and mind and are full of drama-- making you want to claw your screen to pieces :] (but we all know that's why we love the drama)
Love story, high school students, specific art and similar feeling to both
Both are romance animes and somehow both give similar feeling.
Bokura Ga Ita and Kimi ni Todoke have a lot of similarities. They have the same atmosphere,the art style is very similar, both main guy characters look a little alike. They both focus on how a persons relationship with others progresses. Also they are both romances with drama and light comedy.
Both has more on romance...and a little of comedy. The way they graphic it is just the same.
both have similar feeling, talk about the first love.. both have the characters development ...
They both have the same feel and style to it. Their is a very similar art style and the two main guys have the same personality. High school love theme, Drama, Romance, Comedy and a slice of life maybe.
Very similar artstyle, and in the beginning it had the same feeling as Kimi Ni Todoke!
Both couples have slow, developing romances! Both main girls shares the same admiration for the boy, and are slow to notice that their admiration is actually love.
Both the Mail protagonists have very similar personalities! They are both one of the most popular and good-looking at their school! And they are both the center of the attention!
Popular guy, falling for non stupid dummy girl....great story and originality
Both animes take you into a female's perspective of romance.
Animation style is similar. Also, romance dealing with a popular high school boy and a girl that admires him but is insecure about herself.
Both are nicely written romances, and whose animations are quite less-detailed. Kimi ni Todoke is considerably lighter than Bokura ga Ita, though.
Both have romance, but the story is very slow-moving and will most likely leave you screaming at your screen. You will have some sort of strong emotion towards the characters, whether it's love (Sawako in KnT) or Hate (Yano in BgI) because with the amount of drama these shows offer, it's hard to be indifferent.
The main difference between the two is that Bokura ga Ita is a lot more realistic in terms of sexual innocennce and honesty of the characters about their feelings.
They are very similare! they are both hard core romance,drama, slife of life animes! 8D
it's not completly the same story, but almost! ^^ T R U S T me if you like one of them you'll like the other!
Both animes involve a popular guy falling for a less popular girl though it seems more extreme in Kimi ni Todoke
If you loved Kimi ni Todoke, I don't recommend Lovely Complex or even Yamato Nadeshiko for you... Because both animes have totally different Genres than Kimi Ni Todoke, regardless the Story or the Art.
I recommend Bokura ga Ita, because both KNT and Bokura Ga Ita have the romance, shojo, drama and love Complex in the same pattern.
Both are slow developing romances, but leave large impacts on your heart and mind and are full of drama.
The series take place in the typical high school setting with the main focus the development of the characters during this time of life that everyone goes through. Both girls face the typical hardships of their love interest being popular while each having their own individual problems that are fit to the series. In Bokura ga Ita we see a darker side of the high school life and the conflict past relationships bring forth in new relationships. While in Kimi ni Todoke we witness the troubles of a new relationships that was founded on the lack of experience.
With this in mind for each couple, we see the supports go through their own developments in different ways. But the support of the main characters tends to be the same. The male friendship is a bit more skewed and struggles more in Bokura than in Todoke, which gives a similar but twist between the series.
Further we see the female aids aren't similar in many fashions between the two series, but they're "there" and do manage to support. With Bokura we see the uglier side of female competition and a complex supporting. Todoke gives a more sweet and straight forward rivalry and helpful friends with the main character's best interest at heart.
The male leads are similar in their popularity and I'd even say kindness. We see the more humane and typical boy in Bokura while Todoke fashions the untainted and direct male.
The females vary greatly from one being at least somewhat socialable to the other knowing only their own company for most their life. They remain the more shy and unwilling to express themselves clearly type of girls. With the exception of physical and background differences, the two girls are basically the same "type" of high school girl thus making the stories seem like a shy-girl gets the popular-boy.
In their own ways both stories go through heartache and revelations that each suit their series. They're all high school kids going through that transition to maturity and becoming aware of themselves, others, and the situations presented before them.
Both series have similar style in which the main male protagonist is popular while the main female protagonist is fairly average.
Both series takes place at similar settings involving drama, comedy, some emotions, and romance filled with misunderstandings and trials.
Both series explores some real life issues that are realistic.
Both series' animation are also somewhat similar.
Also school, love, classes, Japan, love issues bla bla bla.
In the beginning for both anime, the shy girl falls for the popular cool guy. Both are about developing their relationship, and leaves you going "awwwwh! :D"
The male lead is popular and everyone loves him,
He always smiles but he isn't always happy.
The female lead falls in love first.
However in Bokura go Ita the female isn't "hated" like in Kimi ni Todoke
shoujo fans...if u watched kimi ni todoke last year dont miss this one !!!..i think u didnt miss but still who are new to shoujo anime O_O u better watch both!!!
both women protagonist in the anime are pretty scary person..
both man protagonist is popular
They both have the same atmosphere, high school romance.
Both animes have the same love atmosphere and great protagonists
maybe KnT have different atmosphere in KWMS. but when i watched KWMS, i just thought of KnT. somehow, both gives a mood of sweet roamnce & both have great hero & heroine.<3 ig you love KnT, you'll definitely love KWMS too.
These are both shojo romance type shows with the main characters of course being the boy and girl and each of them trying to express their feelings to each other. Typical moments where things get sad and then sappy, but if you are a shojo romance fan, you will absolutely love these!
They are both very heartwarming stories about a schoolgirl who's relatively disliked by her classmates or even everybody else in the school except a nice popular guy who has become to like the girl. Both, Usui and Shouta weren't very open about that at first, but they both finally confessed and obviously got a positive answer. The stories are very alike and it's possible to draw some parallels between the characters also.
The romantic storylines are both very catching and you yearn for their relationships to grow.
it has its cute and a LOT of funny moments.
They are both shoujo romance comedies set in high school though the romances are subtle and gentle with plenty of drama and comedy. I'd recommend these two because they are good fun to watch, almost like a chickflick lol so if you like one, you'll like the other.
If you're looking for NOT passionate (steamy) romance, it may be perfect for you.
Both has a "Handsome young boy" in love with the girl,
Want's to make you smile :)
Slice of life.
Both are romantic anime's, though both main characters have different personalities! Other than that, Kimi Ni Todoke is a very good anime :)
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 main characters have scary appearances, but their personalities do not match how they look(or more so, how other people look at them).
The atmosphere is very similar in both animes, lots of (good) drama in both, lots of great moments in both.
Toradora gave me the same heart-beat while waiting for next ep or when main character are close to each other ;) both 'bout school, love and finding place in life.
Both anime are primarly high school romance comedies, with one of the main characters being completely misanderstood due to their demour.
Has the same kind of feel to it.Has both the romance and great art
Very Similar. Main character in the beginning are feared by their peers.
In many ways, Takasu Ryuuji is like Kuronuma Sawako. He is scary looking but caring for others, and he is also a "loner" to begin with. However, things started to change when Kitamaru helped him, as Kazehaya Shouta helped Sawako too. But unlike Kimi ni Todoke, Toradora is a much better love story in my opinion. So if you REALLY like Kimi ni Todoke, I recommand you watch Toradora.
both are unique school life animes. the characters in both are unforgettable, very funny at times, very touchy at times, unpredictable...the overall atmosphere is very similar especially with Pin and Yuri as the quirky teachers :D
OMG! Both are worth watching. Very fun to watch. Comedy mixed with the romance thats happening. One of those animes that you MUST watch.
Both are full of misunderstandings which lead to both comedic and awkward situations, with genuinely caring main characters and offering a ton of character development - both Sawako and Taiga grow as people throughout their respective series. Toradora also offers a bit of comedy-violence on the side.
Feeling of a shy little girl (not good at social) falling in love with a popular boy in Hiyokoi is like Sawako (not good at social) falling in love with Kazehaya (popular boy) in Kimi ni Todoke. Except there's no rivals to fight against in Hiyokoi.
Produced by the same studio, similar atmosphere and a similar setting for both anime. Extremely shy girl meets popular guy who takes a liking to her, drastically changing her life.
Obviously! Same director, similar art. Shy, unsocial girl meets superpopular, kind boy and starts to make friends because of him. they are deskmates too
The female protagonist of Hiyokoi -Hiyorin- have the shy character of Sawako (from Kimi ni Todoke), and have the same appereance of Taiga (from Torodora) and in terms of height Yuushin and her are the opposite of Risa and Atsushi (from Lovely Complex). The story of Hiyokoi is similiar to these 3 animes as well.
Both about a popular boy helping a shy girl overcome her shyness.
Both main girl charas are shy and quiet and their partners are cheerful and outgoing. They start to make more friends as time passes by thanks to their partners
Both have shy girls who fall in love with popular boys despite obstacles. Both protagonists learn to make new friends. Both girls even have appearances that remind their classmates of other things (Sawako reminds her classmates of Sadako from The Ring, and Hiyori reminds them of a hiyoko, or baby chick).
both have the light fluff romance, between a popular guy, and an unpopular, unsocialised girl, which is very very shy
both have the sense of happiness, light warmheartedness, enabling oneself to grow, but thats the typical of shoujo romances.
both main girls start off with 0 or 1 friends because they dont know how to interact due to their shyness from different circumstances,
both girls start to develop friends, and become more open, all thanks to the typical popular guy wh has interest in the girls.
they are very similar, though Hiyokoi is a short 23 min film, its still a must watch if you really liked kimi ni todoke.
It's similar to its genre and the attitude of the protagonists.
Both female protagonists doesn't want to mingle with its classmates and does want to be alone and also the one they like is friendly and popular.
Both are romance and i suppose both have hints of humor, its too early to tell yet about kimi no todoke but its probably going to have a clannad like ending as so many animes have now
They're both about high school love. And they're both awesome.
The main female character of both Clannad and Kimi ni Todoke have the same "Do my best" personality. In that sense, the main male characters are also alike. Okazaki (from Clannad) and Kazehaya (from Kimi ni Todoke) both aid the main female characters into more interactions with people and help the story develop into a deep plot. I enjoyed both anime and hope to see more like it.
If you liked the NagisaXTomoya storyline in Clannad, then I'm sure you'll like Kimi ni Todoke. Unlike many series, while Kimi ni Todoke is a romance, the two leads' relationship progresses slowly, making it an absolutely adorable romance for those who love characters pining after each other.
Both anime shows the love that is born between two high school people by helping each other and making friends.
Great Story, Characters and Animation.
Both are beautiful romance stories. Although Clannad has more action in it and kimi ni todoke is more laid back, they both have a similar kind of feeling
Kare Kano begins with two characters who don't realize that they have fallen for each other. As the series develops, the characters learn, grow, and come to accept themselves (and each other) just as they are. The theme of character growth is similarly laid out in Kimi ni Todoke.
These two shows are both about a boy and girl in love - and how that affects those around them. The presentation is different, the characters are a little different, but both give off a warm fuzzy feeling - the feeling of 'ah, this is what young love is like'.
Kare Kano and Kimi ni Todoke are both romantic stories with situations delicately psycho-analized by the main characters.
Even if the two main females are very differents by personality, the girl will little by little face the importance and experience of her own precious first love in both series.
The love of the girl, as the love of the boy, are told and shown throughout both series in a real unique way.
Still, the main male and female character will be surrounded by awesome friends which will help them and will be affected by their situations.
There are many anime which face love stories out there, but noone of them is similar to Kare Kano or Kimi ni Todoke as much as those two are with eachother. For this reason i strongly feel to associate KNT to KareKano and viceversa.
Indeed, if you already liked one of those, you can't miss to watch the other! You'll definitely appreciate them both.
Personally, i think that "unique" is a perfect adjective to describe them both. Their stories are really told and shown in a special unique way which authomatically creates a very charming atmosphere.
boy likes girl and girl likes boy and both help each other in their times in need, while discovering themselves, making new friends, and becoming better individuals. Comic, Romantic, and Slice of life.
Both are excellent at making ones heart throb...
The art, the plot, everything reminds me KareKano greatly.
You fall in love for both, altough Sawako and Yukino are very different: the first is very shy, the second wants to stand out in front of everyone, but it's de role of Kazehaya and Arima that really matters in the story. Just their presence create major changes in the girls lives.
Both are very tender and warm.
Same warm feelings, beautiful design, kind and lovely but a little strange girl as a main character, romantic story
Chihayafuru greatly reminds me of Kimi ni Todoke. They somehow look similar in terms of art, however Chihayafuru is slightly more detailed than the other. They both give a relaxing feeling whenever you watch them.
Kimi ni Todoke mainly focuses on romance, while Chihayafuru focuses on a game called "Karuta". There's a bit of romance as well in Chihayafuru.
the art is very similar, and for me art is a very big thing. they both are very nice animes and although the story isnt the same, they gave me a feeling that they were similar and they both are really good animes :)
The animation and the atmosphere that both give you is the same.
Right now I am madly in love with Kimi ni Todoke. WHY?? Well because it reminds me so much of my favorite anime series... Honey and Clover. Although the stories are really different from one another they both have the same feel and tone (right down to the pastelly art style ^_^ ). Both series focus on a central theme of self discovery and friendship and love. The type of humor in both series is very similar too and both series have a knack for giving you lovely portrayals of the characters' thoughts and feelings.
Kimi ni Todoke has one almost side-story (but of sizeable duration) with such mild lyrical mood as Honey and Clover is full of.
Both anime are gentle, sweet, and innocent, unlike certain romance anime that include hentai things.
Another thing about the anime is that they both kind of drag along for awhile, from the first season into the second. Sometimes, it gets kind of irritating, with the misunderstandings, but overall, I liked both anime.
Although they differ in the genre, both animes give you a peaceful happy feeling. They also are about friendship and bonds. The main charas, Natsume and Sawako are also alike: they are very shy and at the beggining have a hard time, because they cant express themselves and so other people think of them as weird persons, but with the help of their friends they slowly start to open their hearts.
Definitely different in genres, Natsume Yuujinchou is supernatural themed while Kimi ni Todoke is a pure romantic shoujo, but somehow i can tell that they are very similar indeed.
- Graphicly talking: they both do share very clear and quiet colors, amazing character design and pretty good music themes which all of them make lead the serie to this very calm and relaxing atmosphere, pretty enjoyable.
- About the story: the main characters from both series (Natsume and Sawako) are, at first, without friends due to been judged weird and lonely. But, thanks to their good personality they finally come to know new people and make real nice friends which will help them in many occasions.
I strongly believe that whoever liked one of those serie will love the other as well.
Both series have a very similar vibe, they give off a peaceful, relaxed feeling. =) And now that I think about it, both shows follow a reserved, misunderstood protagonist through the seasons as they begin to open up to new friends and form lasting relationships.
First differences. Sawako from KimiTo is rumored to be able to see ghost or to be heavily involved in the supernatural. Natsume from NatsumeYuujinchou can actually see ghosts and the supernatural. Sawako has more trouble hiding her emotions, she cries a lot more when she is happy or when she is sad. Natsume is better at hiding when he feels hurt because he grew up being called a liar. KimiTo is a romance. Natsume is supernatual and a slice of life.
Similarities: Both stoires leave you with this wonderfully sweet feeling. both characters feel isolated from the people around them. Both want to be close to others. Both are hurt by bullying but are not broken or twisted because of it. Both are quietly strong. Both care a lot about other ppl (or in natsume's case yoki). Both have familys that care about them (natsume are not bilolgical though) and are important to the characters, but the characters they don't confide in them. and finally i love the sweet relaxed feeling of both of them.
While Kimi Ni Todoke is more "slice of life" and less fantasy than Fruits Basket, they have a similar feel. The protagonist is a girl who is very sweet, and her kindness (or some might say naivety) touches the hearts of the people around her. Furuba is a little bit sillier; KimiTo toes the line on being a bit too saccharine. Tohru and Sadako both have two good girlfriends who are somewhat of social outcasts; Arisa and Chizu are VERY similar characters. Both series have a pretty soft color palette, although personally I think the art in KimiTo is a bit better. If you liked the cute, romantic side of Furuba, you'll love KimiTo.
Both are very tender and warm.
both Sawako from KimiTo and Toru from Fruba are oblivious, sweet and try to put others before themselves. They both have 2 close friends who are delinquentish. Both illicit an adorable warm feeling and both have some degree of sorrow. Both experience some degree of bullying from the popular girls that like the main guy character. KimiTo is a romance and sweet. Fruba has more comedy. Ohter than that Kimiko's Sawako's main problem is that she looks like Sadako from "the ring" But she comes from an intact family. Toru's family is dead and the anime has more of a focus on family relationships. Also Toru is not scary, she is just overlooked. I loved both
For anyone who loved the slice-of-life sweetness to be found in Fruits Basket, Kimi ni Todoke is definitely a must-watch. Both series spotlight the necessity for companionship, kindness, and empathy as well as showcasing strong friendships and slow-building romantic relationships. Hopefully, Sawako will draw you into her world and experiences just as Tohru did for you in Fruits Basket.
Both anime focus on hilarious comedy with lots of chibified scenes. Moreover they tell a romance shoujo story. Both female leads are very funny and the male counterparts are no idiots. Those two shows are not your usual romance comedy anime but truly something special.
A socially challenged girl becomes much more social after gaining a little motivation and some help from an overly popular guy. The reactions to gaining friends is similar, "oh so this is what having a friend is like". They first only strive tobe accepted by the guy and eventually gain more romantic feelings for him. They also both have overly optimistic opinions of people at first.
Kimi Ni Todoke and Skip Beat are both a slice of life. They both have have some hilarious moments. But have some deep moments aswell.^^ and the Main character in the animes is troubled with something and is brighting up her future.
They both are under quite the same surcomstance.
You will enjoy both of them!
Both the main characters are very charismatic. School rumble has a lot more comedy, whereas Kimi ni Todoke is slower paced and a bit more shoujo. But, they're both romantic comedies that are fun to watch.
it more romance thaN school rumble QUITE COMEDY THE ANIME IS QUITE SLOW sometime irritating but in the end its total satisfaction garenteed
Beside the fact that they have the same genres, ( you get the same feelings when you watch it) there are also people confessing their feelings that they find it hard to do and overall it was very enjoyable (in my opinion). There are also some characters who act like characters from both shows. The romance is a bit slow but everything else is good.
While watching Usagi Drop, I couldn't stop thinking about how much it reminded me of Kimi Ni Todoke. They both have similar artwork, and both series has that light, fluffy, flowery air about them. Both wonderful stories as well, though there's nothing very similar between plot lines.
These two are similar because of the sweet atmosphere in the Anime's and Manga's naturall. The art is a little bit similar and through the whole story you keep telling on two words "Cute!!! Kawaii!!!"
Both the main characters from Ookiku Furikabutte and Kimi ni Todoke are high schoolers that appear as outcasts from their classmates. They first show up as shy and sensitive individuals, but with the help of a close knit of friends, both characters begin to develop and mature into more confident individuals. Both animes do a great job at showing the character development and character interaction.
Difference wise, Ookiku is a sports anime centered heavily around shounen baseball. Kimi is a lighter, shoujo romance comedy centered around relationships.
A bit of a stretch, but both involve emotionally guarded and misunderstood kids being accepted and brought out of their shells by a group of friends. And the funny faces.
The stories maybe very different, one is about romance while the other is about supernatural. But both animes give a very similar feeling-warming and touching. The 2 main characters, Natsume and Sawako are very lonely at first and later make friends that changed their life.
Both series emit a sort of nostalgic feeling that makes you feel calm and happy when you watch them (at least for me it did). Kobato and Sawako are socially awkward but in a good way; they are both naive, honest, and very considerate of others but they can be a bit overdramatic exceeding others' expectations. To a certain extent both are slice of life animes, although Kobato's got Clamp's usual magical elements and cross-over characters and Todoke's got Sawako's Sadako (the Ring, if you know what I mean) misunderstanding. The nostalgic feeling, lovable characters, cute plots, and the comedic moments would surely make you keep watching.
Kimi ni Todoke has a lot in common with Gokinjo Monogatari. They are both high school love stories, fairly slice of life, and feature adorable chibis. I think the art style is also comparable, though Kimi ni Todoke is certainly a much softer style. If you're looking for a romance and coming of age story, either is a great choice.
Both are about a main character that is socially awkward(although Fu is more clumsy than socially awkward) that becomes friends with girls from school(each with their own unique personality) and begin to have more confidence in themselves and more determination to complete their goals(Sawako;Do one good deed a day.Fu;become a photographer).Kimi Ni Todoke is a romance,while Tamayura:Hitotose is a slice of life.Kimi Ni Todoke is more centered around Sawako,while Tamayura:Hitotose main character is Fu,but centers around all four girls and the things they do together.
These two might not seem very similar at first glance, but both series have an adorable, very slow pure love story to them. If you enjoy the romance in Emma, I think you might like Kimi ni Todoke and vice versa.
Although on the surface extremely different, and not necessarily for everyone who liked the other, both stories are actually rather sweet tales of coming out of one's shell and falling into a slow, but very much deeply-held love. Although Sawako never flipped out and chopped the people picking on her in half (while Sattelizer does) the adorable refreshing/freezing romantic comedy that drives both are surprisingly similar.
It all starts off with that one misunderstood girl, the girl that no one talks to, the girl that is always rumoured to be something they're not. No one knows the real Amu or Sawako. But their lives start to change when they both have an encounter with the one popular guy that changes it all.
Yuiina and Kurumi look alike and the overall atmosphere of both animes is very refreshing. Also both have a unique look into the slice of life, romantic anime....Both definitely worth the time put into them
Though Kimi ni Todoke is about a social reject and a popular boy, and Ultra Maniac is about two relatively popular people, both are about two characters that like each other but don't want the other to know.
Ultra Maniac is also semi magic-girl, as the best friend of the main character is one, but other than that, the love stories are both slow but sweet, and the boys both seem like boring, static characters, but are actually deep people who aren't what they seem. Love them both! If you liked one, you'll probably like the other.
The are a bit alike because it all about friendship. Friendship is one of the most inportant thing in these anime's, except for love. The girls who play the main rule are kind hearted, innocent, sweet, a little bit naive and dull and the are a little bit different. In the end, the are loved by there friends. AnoHana is only a much more sorrowfull than Kimi in Todoke, but in a good way. The are both good anime's pleas watch and enjoy :)
Both are cute romantic comedies revolving around a girl who is different and alienated. Both girls are eventually able to become sociable and feel comfortable with they way they are. This is because they both have a respective boy who is crazy about them and wants to help them :D
Despite the fact that one is shounen and the other is shoujo, they are actually quite similar to each other as far as the atmosphere and the way the shows ~feel~. The romance in both is slow and quite adorable. Rea and Sawako also have somewhat similar personalities.
When I see Kimi ni Todoke and appreciate its peaceful and charming atmosphere I only could compare to Aria series atmosphere.
If you really want to enjoy both series you must let go by these unique and so slow, charming animes and their proposals.
Both anime are rather lighhearted high school comedy romances, that does not rely on ecchi elements for popularity, though Karin (unlike Kimi ni Todoke) have fantasy setting.
In both animes the female protagonist is an outcast and are negleted and/or bullied by other classmates. However both girls seem to attract the most popular guy in the school despite their social status. They also indure many struggles such as abuse and crude jokes by their classmates and often had to deal with the dangerous jealousies of the other females who felt they were better. I loved both of these anime and it really shows how the underdog despite their disadvantages can be happy and have it all to.
The overall feel and cuteness level are the same. Likewise being big on the eye candy factor.
The female protagonists are alike too. They're both social outcasts due to their appearance. Sawako is believed to have supernatural powers where as Lydia actually does.
One is shojo romance other is shonen but I felt the same watching both. I mean the sensation of platonic love with both sides being afraid of confessions and making first move. These are not dynamic love stories with sudden changes of heart and quarrels but slowpaced natural development of close relationship.
"If you tremble at each step, how do you wanna walk?" - This question deals with the main girls problems in both animes:
Kimi ni Todoke and Hitohira share two big similitaries:
First, the female main character is so adoring (her personality), you'd love to help her with all her problems.
Second, both girls have got problems, either to find friends or too really be open and live life. Kimi ni Todoke, Sawako (Sadako) is just too shy to find friends, as well because she always was sort of "bullied" cause of her name and her "weird" charisma. In Hitohira, the girl is too shy to speak (in front of others) and to put through her opinion and feelings. (By the way, Kimi ni Todoke deals more with romance, and is - personally - the better anime)
Both girls start to change positiv as time progresses and have to overcome their own "borders".
Both series are relatively slow paced high school love stories. The plot of both shows revolve around two friends coming to develop feelings for the other.
The main characters also share some similarity in their desire to be cute or girly, rather than the appearance they give off. Kimi ni Todoke's Sawako being creepy and unapproachable, while Sasameki Koto's Sumika is cool and masculine.
A secret love story between the two main characters. The female leads are so similar it's scary and also the male leads have the same effect on the females
While I was first watching Kimi ni Todoke I realized how much the Art Style and The Music was. They don't really have a lot in common genre wise, but it has that supernaturalness to it but, (there really is spirits). If you're looking for Art and Music it's got it! ;D
(PS: Go to Natsume Yuujinchou, Zoku is the sequel but it wouldn't let me chose it..This is my first time if you can't tell. ^^; sorry.)
