Special A and Ouran High School Host Club are both shoujo comedies that center around a somewhat special group of high school students. In Special A this group is an elite class of the best students in school while in Ouran its a "host club". Still, the characters in both groups are eerily similar; in both groups you have a perfect male (lead), a cool reserved character, a cute character and a guy who appears to be a dummy.
Also both animes (being shoujo) center around a very clueless (but strong) heroine. Both shows have a lot of silly comedy. The character designs are alike. Overall both animes have the same feel, so I think that fans of one of them will like the other.
The atmosphere of Ouran High and Special A are the same with those students who enjoy themselves staying in a luxurious room and leisurely spend their days are very much similar. Though Ouran High is much more comedic than special A, still I could say that if you liked Ouran High there's a high possibility that you would also like Special A.
Both have a comedy genre which makes them both fun to watch.Random things appear all the time and you can't help but love all the characters
Both are closely similar... Hikari, a talented girl raised under a normal family, attends a prestigious and elite school. She gets to be a member of a special class of rich and bright students who goof and fool around. Ouran is just like that too...
The story is kinda similar.
First, both are absolutely different from their manga counterparts. Second, both involve an elite group of students, be they the best looking ones (Ouran), or the top students (Special A). Third, both are drop dead hilarious. Finally, both involve the leading member of the group (Kei and Suou) liking an extremely dense female member of the group (Hikari and Haruhi).
Speical A has the a bunch of Rich Kids doing what they do best, just like in Ouran. It also has really great characters like Ouran, but what makes this fancy is that it follows the romantic story of each character. It will make you laugh and brighten up your day when you are feeling down.
Special A and Ouran Host Club have the same general feel. Each features a group of distinct characters with slight focus on the relationships between the male and female leads. If you like the comedic adventures and exaggerated animation style of Ouran, Special A is certainly worth a try.
Well firstly, both are shoujo comedy school slice-of-life anime. both shows the dramas of each member of a special group of friends. ouran is romantic in that the club is set up to entertain women, whilst special is romance in the sense that most of the characters have their own love story and pair up. however, both have similar atmospheres. ouran's comedy is better, but special a still has it's fair share. they even end nearly the same!! many scenes reminded me of the other.
Both have a club consisting of rich, beautiful and talented students. The main girl from both series are the oddballs out as far as money is concerned. The romance situations have the main guy in love with the main girl who doesn't even take notice. The comedy is about equal, though in my opinion, I found SA more comical.
Having seen one of the two, it's impossible to see the other without being constantly reminded of the first.
Both great cute Anime where the girl is not really a push over and the guys aren't jerks!! Very funny, great characters.
well..its both about school and a special club..in OHHC it has host club..while in special a it has this special class for top7 student..i found some episode similar in some ways..like in the last episode..where tamaki is going to france while kei is going to ??(the main branch of takashima)..it is both comedy..and emotional in some episode but more on in comedy..
I believe they have some similarities in the fact that there is this "elite" group in school to which only a few are allowed. And there is this display of wealthiness from a couple of its members, it shows in the kind of activities they make. A lot of bishounen running around too, with wicked father or mother figures. I suppose these are common traits in anime that are mostly developed in school. Also the wealthiest boy , or at least the one that shines the most, is in love with a girl of humble origins who is into studying and has a strong personality.
Both revolve around a prestegious group of students and most of them are extremally wealthy. They both have the same type of comedy and are both very good animes if your looking to just relax and laugh. Also I think if you like HaruhixTamaki, you'll love HikarixKei
Both are about a group of people that have gathered together.The leader of both anime likes the protagonist .They are both romantic comedies and are shoujo .There are also a similarity in characters,Tamaki from Ouran is like Tadashi from SA,Kyouya from Ouran is like Kei from SA,Haruhi from Ouran is like Jun from SA,Takeshi(Mori-Sempai) from Ouran is like Ryuu from SA.Both shows also have a pair of twins,Hikaru and Kaoru (both Boys)from Ouran and Jun and Megumi(One boy one girl) from SA.Another suprise is that both groups consists of 7 people.Also in both shows only the protagonists are not rich.So mch similarity in both shows but they both develop in different ways.Still i liked both so why wont you?
If you liked Ouran you willl love "special A",Both are romantic comedys, about an Average girl who acts more like a boy,hanging out with rich people in a special class/club.
They're similar in a lot of ways, also the characters relate to each other a lot.
hehehe really really similar to me :P...host club having trips and festival together...different situations ..rich family boys ..Special A is really really similar to that...both are really really funny!!!! :D also 7 - 7...just in special A 3 are girls where in ouran only 1 is girl :)
Is base on almost the same place with the similar romance comedy.
Both are about school, comedy and romance. The atmosphere is very similar. They have same scenes from the sea, the trip, the cosplay, festival etc.
The story revloves around elite high school students. If Ouran revolves around rich characters, S.A revolves around the intelligent students. They are packed with comedy but if Ouran is more of a slice of life genre, S.A is more of a romance anime. They way how both stories end is similar.
In both anime's there are elite class students and one normal (commoner) person, romance between main characters, great humor, related to school and both have 7 friend's brought together.
I found the both Anime to be very similiar, both are talking about school life, each of the Anime are focusing the school life on Private Groups that the main characters take part in, While Ouran High School talks about a school of rich people and a private Host Club, Special A talks about rich people that are in the private special group of the smartest students.. xD make sure you watch them both!
They are both about a group of high school students in a 'club' of some sort. (Host Club for Ouran and selective students for Special A) The school is both for rich kids with the main character in both being female, being a commoner but still getting into the school anyway. The female main is also every smart in both of them, S.A 2nd in school and Haruhi top of grade. They also both have love problems within their group. Not to mention they are both funny with those hilarious signs.
Well, both anime are really awesome.
Both are comedy, romance, school life, shoujo..
Both have a main female char that is 'poor' but talented and goes in a special elite school/class..
Both series have a extremly good char design, both can be funny, both can be romantic.. Both have characters really good definited.~
I suggest to watch both.. believe me, both worth it! :3
Special A = Ouran High School Host Club + School Rumble
Pompous, rich and good-looking people that can do anything and everything to perfection and are clearly superior to all humans and even posses hearts of gold.... check.... Male lead in love with the totally adorable and equally dense and clueless female lead who doesn't notice his feelings even if slapped in the face with them..... check.... ^^
+All 3 are fantastic series
they are very similar... characters, humor... Host Club is more funny, special A is cuter ^^
Ouran is a really funny anime! Every character is special in itself. and the same goes for SA. but Ouran has more individually gone into each character.
almost the same 1 girl and the others are boys; rich school;not so fancy girl; cute girl;comedy;love story
Ouran Host club and Special A have a similar mood going...
both deal with some high school for the rich n a normal talented
young girl that somehow gets caught up with a certain group/club
of the elite...even though they both have their slight differences...
they're both romantic comedies that are completely watchable^^
Both about school life and its about the girl with her rich friends.
These series are EXTREMELY simillar because:
*There is one commoner among the superelite students
*They like being with each other and they are like family
*The main guy is in love with the main girl and the girls doesn't show feelings for him
*Even in Special A in the end of series they do a host club
*Endings are extremely similar becuase the main guy is taken away and everyone tries to bring him back
Well Special A is more deep and romantic than Ouran xD
these tow are too similar to each other .. both talks about 7 students .. the main girl is poor and while the rest are rich .. and a lot of similar situations ..
Same situation, one commoner and a bunch of close rich friends in a really prestigious school. the guy that likes her looks a lot like tamaki. It's also really funny and sweet.
Both Have Hilarious Characters
Both are romance
Both are in special High Class schools
They both have this setting where a normal girl goes to a prestigious school attended by rich kids, but still manages to cope and fit in. Both series have comedy and romance thrown in (though in Ouran the romance is more evident in the manga).
Both have the essence of comedy and romance, and they have a similarity of the story outline which held in school with rich and famous people. Also the similarity of some characters is a bit matched, and surely both will give laughter at the end.
Both Ouran High School Host & Special A have a student, which is the main character, who is attending an elite school & is an oddball who does not fit in well when it comes to money. Haruhi from OHSHC & Hikari from Special A are both very dense when it comes to love & they do not realize that Tamaki [OHSHC] & Kei [S.A.] love them. They also share a couple of the same episodes, [I hope I don't ruin this for you guys] including the time when the Host Club & Special A visited the main character's house. Coincidentally, the Host Club & Special A both have seven members, including Haruhi & Hikari. Both are also comedies and I enjoyed watching every episode of both series. All in all, if you have watched one of the two, I recommend you watch the other. OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB & SPECIAL A ROCK ! (:
If you liked Ouran Host Club, then you will surely appreciate Special A, a mix of love, comedy, good looking and rich guys, who will capture your heart! Strongly recommended.
both are funny as well as there is some romance. if u prefer friendship over romance then ouran high is perfect where as u want everyone to have their pair then u will surely like special A
They both depict the lives of students in highly exclusive schools. There were a lot of fun moments in both, though I find Ouran to be far superior in almost every aspect.
initial character design is very similar however developement more unexpected i would recomend watching ouran high first as SA goes as far as to openly spoof ouran thats how close they are please watch one if you have watched the other
Romance, school, slice of life, comedy, both feel-good series ^^
If you like something funny like Ouran High School Host Club than you might as well like Speacial A!These two manga/anime are the best comedy I seen yet.They also have a little romance in them.But mostly comedy.So atch it you might find yourself laughing before you know it!!!
School settings with plenty of romance and humor to go around. Main characters are all funny as hell and give off good feelings.
The setting for both animes are in school. Their stories revolve around a special group of people who are rich and special. The plots are really entertaining and funny!
These both have romance and comedy at prestigious school clubs
Special A seems like a copy of Ouran High School Host Club that is not superior to Ouran High School Host Club. But if you are still looking for a humourous anime to watch that is similar to Ouran High School Host Club, try Special A.
Special A and Ouran High School Host club are very similar in storyline. Both are Romance+ Comedy animes and the endings are very similar because in both the girl and the boy jump off something (Clock tower + Bridge). The build-up is also fairly similar as the girl is clueless that the guy(s) like her.
Both focus around school life, and are romantic and funny in their own way :)
You'll love them both.
Main characters are similar. Both of them are awesome shoujo series. The only difference is that Special A is romance, while Ouran is parody. Both of them are great.
Both involve a group of elite rich kids who go about their daily lives. Each have more than a daily dose of comedy (chibis galore, everyone! ^^) and a little romance (Special A much more so than Ouran). All the characters are also made out to be extremely attractive, and often have moments where they are surrounded by roses (Ouran) or doilies( Special A) to promote this sort of appeal.(There's also quite a bit of squealing and fangirling among the background characters in both. 0.0) We also get to see some of the hardships of each character's past or current homelives in both. There's a lot of differences of course, but the only big differences are that 1) The main male lead is much, much smarter and moe serious than the main female lead in Special A, wheras it's reversed in Ouran. In fact, Hikari is pretty much the female version of Tamaki. ^^ and 2) There's much more drama in special A than in Ouran.
These two series are almost one in the same. Had the characters in Special A looked like the cast of Ouran I would've been fooled completely into thinking there was a season two of OHSHC. If you like Special A, there's no doubt you will love Ouran.
Special A is like Ouran without the harem.
Ouran is like Special A but with better jokes.
Special A actually has some vestige of a plot if you stick with it.
Ouran KNOWS its ridiculous and by merit of that manages to be fantastic.
They are both distinctly shoujo. They are cute. They are funny. They have romances.
They both take place with a school that houses a prestigous group. Both are a comedy and both have a similar feel. The animation in each series is unique and beautiful with great color.
Both are highly recommended.
Both anime have girls of low social classes attending a prestigious school, and both anime are LOADED with comedy! As far as length goes, they have almost the same amount of episodes.
Both of these deal with a specific group of high school kids and strangely enough their main protagonists are both "poverish", young girls!! Many similarities, yet so many differences, but somehow they're one in the same! Fun, hilarity, and drama are packed with the complicated and interesting lives of each character. And as it always is in animes like this, almost every character is loveable in their very own special way.
you'll probably like this because the story revolves around the life of a hghschool student
The drawing is similar to Ouran, this is nice comedy with romance. And ending is as... unusual as in Ouran xd
Both animes take place in school where the main characters are treated specially. Both include rich and social standings, where the main heroine is middle-class. Somewhat of a reverse harem (in Special A the other main girl even dotes on the heroine). The love interests have somewhat of a love-hate relationship. The males are very protective of the girls they like. School-life, lots of comedy, gorgeous guys, and a growing romance from episode one make these anime two of my favorites.
Both story are comedy romance based upon school life of isolated elite group of teenagers with their interest in one common girl among them and the changes which that commoner brings to their life.
it's set in a school, each with a kinda of "club" where the main character gets attached to...
also, the climax of the story is similar, where the "head/king" plans to go overseas for the sake of the main character.
They are both a high school comedy/romance.
Both shows include rich, beautiful and talented students in "elite" groups. Special A is a group of smart, talented kids from the school. Host Club is a group of handsome young men a "commoner" girl who has to pay back a debt.
In both shows the main character guy is in love with the girl, but the girl is to naive, and never notices.
Both shows are full of comedy, romance, and drama. And you will fall in love with the characters from both shows.
Ouran High Sch
If you like Ouran, you'll love SA!
Both shows include a 'commoner' girl that enrolled in a school with extremely rich people.
Shows another story of love, rich main and sides characters, and also one of them (the most pretty and intelligent) falls in love with the 1fragile but strong' main girl. In both of the stories, the girl isn't rich like the others.
They both have to do with love and a group of friends... All special in their own way and very popular throughout the school because of it.
> both series have genres that contain comedy/romance/drama
> both have a club made up of really rich students aparts from the female lead
however ouran high school focuses more on the comedy while special A does let the romance part develop ish. if you enjoyed one of them you wil definitely enjoy the other.
Special A is similar to Ouran as it has it's own group. It is also full of hilarious moments and romances. I would highly recommend this one.
Both shows have a group of friends, all of them are great students, all of them are good friends and during the show their past is revealed. Also, there's a good balance of romance and humor.
both of these is about high school life then hikari in special a and haruhi from ouran is similar both of them came from poor family then the school they study all the students are rich
They're both romance comedies with lots of interesting characters. The female main characters Haruhi - OHSHC - and Hikari - SA - are smart and successful girls. Something they share is that they're almost too thick headed to know that the boys like them. This leads, of course, to hilarious and/or embarrassing situations.
The male main characters Kei - SA - and Tamaki - OHSHC - are both rich, handsome, intelligent and they share the same air of confidence.
These anime are really funny and are worth checking out!
Same atmosfeer, same kind of elite group, same kind of feeling.
Both shoujo, romance, comedy. If u love one of them you will definitly love the other. I personally loved S.A. more due the fact dat haruhi isn't 'being a girl' all the time (what I really don't like about it...) and the fact that I also liked Kaoru too end with her :P
Also Special A is more romance than ouran high school :)
They are both about elite high school students. It's very likely that if you liked Ouran, you will enjoy Special A.
Special A really reminded me of Ouran. Lots of comedy, plenty of character development, and of course the obvious: a poor girl befriending a group of elite students. The endings really reminded me of each other. Special A is more romantic - and there are plenty of side romances as well.
both of them take place at a very expensive school. They both are about a group of friends and the main characters are a boy and a girl who in the end fall in love. they are both a romanic comedy that are super cute! if you liked one of these you would probably like the other.
Both of these involve a special part of a private school, in Ouran Koukou host club's case, it's a host club, and in Special A, it's the top 7 students on the school.
In Special A, there's more rivalry with the first and second placed students, however both were designed to be comical, When I think of one or the other, the other one always comes to mind!
If you like one, you'll most likely like the other!
Both anime are similar in the aspect that they both involve a group of kids who attend a high school for the rich and famous. They both have a heroine who comes from a poor family. They both have the same kind of feel to it, and the art work seems kind of similar. There are two main differences I see between these two anime. The first one is the fact that in OKHC the heroine dresses as a boy most of the time whereas in SA she doesn't. The second one is that in OKHC the main male characters seem to have an interest in only the heroine (more of a harem) - but it does hint to a couple forming at the end; whereas in SA there is an interest between the various male and female characters leading to multiple couples. Both are good and worth watching.
Both animes have the "Special Club with Special Characters" theme in it. The love story is quite interesting, and a lot of funny moments take place in most of the episodes. If you liked Ouran Host Club, then you'll love Special A! ^^
Was searching for a very long time for something similar.
They both are set in a rich school, with a group somewhat superior to the other students. Both are very light-hearted and fun, with a little bit of oblivious romance.
However, one is more intelligence based and the other is more looks (appeal) based.
They're both about school life and give off the rich-people-standing-out-in-school aura.
OHSHC and Special A are similar in many aspects such as...
-Both are hilarious comedies
-Both have a bit of romance
-Both have a special type of elite group such as the host club (OHSHC) and Special A
-Both are shoujo anime
The story is not that similar but the bond that S.A has is similar to the Host club (though they are all guys except Haruhi) Ouran has more comedy at the beginning but romance just explodes at the middle ;) Also, the girl is also oblivious of the guys feelings towards her
Both anime center around a lovable girl who is surrounded by a bunch of bishies (hot guys). Both also has a lot of sweet and comedic moments that will tug at your heartstring and make you laugh out loud. All in all, both are great anime with a list of characters that you can't possibly hate.
Both reverse harem, with plenty of humor and a sweet feeling left after watching an episode.
Contains similar amount of cute, comedy, sugary sweet and sometimes even a taste of drama. Characters are all likable, without any significant villian, plus both are full of attractive guys, a huge eyed female protagonist, episodic events and most of all, a feel-good factor
It's a Comedy / High School / Love story that is touching funny and beautiful story that centers around the sad pasts of the characters. I highly Recommend Fruits Basket if you loved Ouran.
Both these anime are in a high school setting and are known as reverse harem (one girl amongst many guys). Each individual character have their own conflicts they must overcome. Hilarious funny moments as well.
Very similar characters and even the character design and personailities are very similar. Also it has that lighthearted atmosphere and then it has its sad tragic moments. Although in my opinion Fruits Basket has more tradgedy in it and made me cry, lol. I think both are extremley excellent anime's they are like twins or not so distant cousins. Fruits Basket made me cry out of sadness while Ouran made me cry out of laughter. Both anime's are very funny but Ouran has that one step more towards comedy and Fruits Basket one step towards the tragic. Both completley diffrent story lines!
These two shojos are the best of their genre. I'm not usually a shojo fan, but I had to sidestep and make a recommendation for them. If you like Ouran High School because of its "cuteness" especially the relationship between Tamaki and Haruhi (or even Haruhi and Kaoru), then you definitely like Fruits Basket because it has the same types interconnected relationships.
They both show a girl surrounded by a bunch of boys and trying to help . The characters are funny and the scenes hilarious . They both have their originality and quirk . If you liked Fruits Basket , there is no way you won't like Host Club !!
If you liked Fruits Basket, then you're gonna love OHSHC :D Both are fantastic animes with great humor.
Momiji and Honey-Senpai are voiced by the same voice actress, the characters are cute and there are sorta love triangles if you look hard enough
The most obvious is the use of the same voice actor (Japanese): Momiji = Honey. Ouran is actually a series that mocks a lot of stereotypes that male characters are put in, especially in shoujo series. While there are several references that can be drawn throughout the anime-verse, there are several than can be seen in Fruits Basket alone; and the Momiji-Honey connection is the most obvious, hence the use of the same VA. Not to mention both are hilarious in their own right with integrated moments of seriousness to show and advance plot.
Fruits Basket is also a sweet, cheery anime but with a very big dose of heart. Both anime have wonderfully endearing characters and are well written and very funny.
Both follow a lighthearted storyline with endearing and memorable characters and lots of humorous scenes.
Both anime feature an arena of guy characters that each separately fall squarely into one of the typical 'categories' of anime guy characters (appealing to people with different preferences), and they surround a female main character
The comic moments are very alike, biggest difference between them is that Ouran High school Host club doesn't have all the drama Furuba does.
Just like fruits basket, another girl gets sucked into a comical outragous adventure with boys... Watch as one girl goes from the commoner nerd to one of the Host Club boys... while trying to hide that she is a female.
Both of these anime have female main characters that are surrounded by guys. In each the main female is oblivious to love and has a one track mind. They are the same story each with its own twist.
Both of these series have a similar sense of humor and kind of reverse-harems.
Fruits Basket is another romance/comedy anime that has a lot of funny parts and interesting characters. I think that if you enjoy Ouran that Fruits Basket would be right up your alley as well.
Lots of cute boys of varying types inhabit both series, plus the main characters are both somewhat down-to-earth girls in odd situations.
Both are hilariously related with a reverse harem twist. One heroine surrounded by gorgeous bishounen! Not only that, they tell of a story wherein the heroine gives off an effect to each one of those gorgeous bishounen.
they DO have a storyline... they don't just go around in circles. That's why they're awesome to watch!
Very similar style of humor and also has a lot of good looking cool/nice guys.
Both are romantic/comedy series' are set in highschool where a somewhat loner female character gets thrown into a strange situation with a group a guys.
It is also a romance anime, but with comedy. Its very fun to watch.
Both of these Anime's are completely awsome and two of the best Anime's I've ever seen. They are both reverse harem full of comedy and romance that will make you laugh and sometimes cringe. Also Momiji and Honey are voiced by the same voice actor!
same kind of cute girl with crazy affectionate guys, but haruhi fujioka is a bit edgier than tohru honda
Both series are mostly-friendship-based reverse harem shoujo series catalyzed by an important and series-enduring secretive element that provides as much drama as humour for the series. As both progress, the potential for drama and tears becomes clearer the more the reader gets to know about the characters' families. Some romance, some cuteness, and it turns out the series may be more similar than they seem at first glance!
There are a lot of aspects which make both Furuba and Ouran similar. First of all, both feature reverse harem (one girl around a lot of guys). They are also romantic comedies. If you liked Fruits Basket but wanted a Tohru with a more realistic personality, you might enjoy Haruhi in Ouran. Likewise, if you thought Tamaki was a bit too oblivious and air-headed, you might Yuki in Fruits Basket. Fans of Kyo will adore Kaoru and Hikaru.
The story line is not very similat but they are both funny, and about a girl down on her luck. You will truley enjoy this anime. If you can't believe it the just watch the first ep and see for your self.
Romantic comedies with many bishounens, many similar characters (e. g. Honey and Momiji)
Both are high school animes. They are also both comedies that are base around the same general humor. The characters are all enjoyable and relatable. Both of these animes are humor based but have that serious element to them when the time calls for it.
Both are good romance/comedy animes.
Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club both are reverse harems that are mainly comedy, but have their serious side too.
The Humor and the vibe it gives off just feels so close and theres the unspoken love the hilarious moments and the fact that I ROFL for both is something.
have a similar feeling .. a girl come to a group of people life & change something in it .. both are romantic comedy ..
They are both cute, crazy animes...they are all worth watching. These animes are suitable for all ages
A LOT of the characters are really similar. For example, Hani likes to eat cake, sweet things, doesn't look his age, has blonde hair, is really cute, and has usa-chan. Momiji is possessed by the rabbit zodiac spirit, doesn't look his age, has blonde hair, likes sweet things, and is really cute. That's the most similar, but there are other things too! It's a reallly cute anime.
Both have a similar concept of one girl put in a situation of dealing with quirky guys. Both are very humorous with more serious undertones. Fruits Basket probably has more serious undertones, but both are good at balancing the serious moments with the very random and hilarious moments.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are two anime definitely worth watching. Aside from being similar in terms of being a reverse harem, both of these anime will surely keep you on your seat with their light-hearted comedy and romance.
Both have cute, but naive, girls who don't notice the boy around them likes them.
-bishonen (pretty boys)
tamaki = yuki (prince)
honey = momiji (lolito)
haruhi = tohru
cuz they both have love and comedy in them
Both are shoujo with no real romance and the main character are really boring.
1 female protagonist with bunch of bishounens around. But that's not all! You will also get some humorous moments, nice drawing/graphics and some more serious and dramatic moments in the end. If You feel like watching something funny, light but not stupid and completely lacking of seriousness You should watch these 2 series!
Both are about a girl who each lost their mother, but are still able to smile. They both meet weird boys, with many different secrets to tell.
Tohru Honda(Fruits Basket) is always talking to her mother in spirit, and Haruhi Fujioka(Ouran High School Host Club) is also always talking to her mother, just more in her mind and not aloud.
I think you you really enjoyed watching Ouran High School Host Club, then Fruits Basket is something you might want to try out. :)
Both are a kind of "reverse harem" thing, with the lead girl the object of many affections. Both stories are during the high school years, and are more focussed on ironic situations and causing the viewer to laugh as opposed to being serious or meaningful. Light, fun, and G.
They both have some very similar dynamics and I'm sure if you watch them you'll be able to connect similar characters together. They both have everything needed to make great shoujo comedy. (Ouran's better IMO)
For me, this recommendation was a bit obvious, but I'm going to go ahead, humor myself, and write this recommendation anyway.
The overall feel of Ouran and Fruits Basket are a bit different, but there are too many similarities between the two to leave them unchecked. Sure, the plot is a little different, and the situation, but, again, there were just too many similarities.
First is the characters. Tohru, the female protagonist of Fruits Basket, and Haruhi, the female protagonist of Ouran, both lost their moms at an early age. After living without their mom for years, they end up in a situation where they are surrounded by all men, almost all of the time. Tohru ends up in a house with men that change into animals while Haruhi ends up in a host club with men that change costumes every week.
Another character similarity. Momiji, from Fruits Basket, and Honey, from Ouran, are basically the same character, save for the fact that Honey doesn't turn into a bunny. Although, he does carry around a bunny stuffed animal constantly. Another difference is that Momiji doesn't have a character like Mori to act as his "elder", so to speak. Still if you liked one, you will like the other.
Other than characters, stories are a bit similar as well. Sure, Haruhi doesn't live with the males while Tohru does, but the way that they progress through the series gives way to see similarities. As the series progresses, however, the characters must face different types of challenges that define their characters differently.
Really, they are so similar, character wise, that it's scary, but the series do have their differences. I'm not saying that if you love one, you will love the other, but you will at least like the other. If you don't like one, I would avoid the other entirely.
I find them similar. both female characters have no mothers and they male leads in these animes do not realize there feelings toward the lead female charactes. PLus both are cute! ^.^
Both series are emotionally involved - Ouran because it relates and unrelates so much to everyday life, and Fruits Basket because it also relates (and, to a lesser extent, unrelates) to everyday life. Both series, however, focus on life from different angles, with Ouran taking a more "Life is for living, let's make the very best of it and have fun times all the time" stance and Fruits Basket taking a little more serious "Life is for living, so let's put some more meaning into our lives" stance. In addition, both were hit series in Japan when they were released - what more could you possibly want?
They both have a sort of similar feel to them. Even though Fruits Basket isn't completely realistic, there's a lot of eccentric and dramatic characters in both series. :) For example, Momiji (Fruits Basket) and Honey-Sempai (Host Club) are a lot alike. They're both very feminine and love cute things and sweets~ :D A lot of the host club characters sometimes remind me of Ayame, too. xD
All in all, these series are 2 of my favorites, so you should watch them~
Both shows seem to have a lot of similar comedy situations, a female lead, and just general atmospheric similarities.
these two have that same rom com thing going on. i also feel all the characters have been well written and have good back ground storys. These two are the ones i always tell people to watch if they want to start getting in to anime, they are also the only two animes i can watch with my family and everyone loves it lol.
Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club have the lead female being forced to stay with a group of men. They both have a high school setting. There are many character similarities: Momiji (FB) and Honey (OHSHC), Hatori (FB) and Kyouya (OHSHC), and Kyo (FB) and Hikaru (OHSHC), just to name a few.
Both series have school comedy elements, love triangle and characters with tragic pasts.
Haruhi and Tohru are both kind girls who become close to boys at their schools due to a secret they have to keep. For Fruits Basket, its about the Zodiac curse, and for Ouran High School Host Club, its about Haruhi's gender.
Both involve a reverse harem. Both are extremely funny. There's a family-like atmoshere in both. Both have similar art.
Both are constructed around a nice family atmosphere. Both are reverse harems. Both are similarly animated.
The charcater of Hunni in Ouran is like a less complex version (and less annoyin) of Momiji from Fruist Basket.
Another story of a 'fragile but strong' main girl and her 'really pretty' male characters. Like Haruhi, Tohru Honda also likes to do the 'home service' and the boys protect her.
Both animes have such a great feel to them! They both make you laugh, as well as making you cry! However, Ouran does not have any 'Supernatural' elements included, but, there is a considerable amount of day-dreaming! I would strongly reccomend it!
When I started watching Ouran it reminded me entirely of Fruits Basket which I had watched just before this. Both are Shoujo with one girl and many men. All of the men have different, distinct personalities. There is a clear social (or familial) barrier between the girl and all of the guys. The girl is a positive influence on all of the men. Both of them have a light, whimsical feel at times relating to the comedy.
Highschool comedy with memorable characters
Same type of characters; same situations; cute characters, everybody will love them.
It is a reverse harem and it is also a comedy. It's fun and easygoing and is very enjoyable to watch. Highly recommended.
Both are reverse harems, relaxed, and humorous. Female protagonist that changes everything. You will love Tohru as much as Haruhi, or vice versa. Main characters from both anime have touching and sad pasts. Fruits Basket is as humorous and funny as Ouran; anybody who loves funny school life anime will definitely enjoy Fruits Basket or Ouran.
Both has nice and kind protagonist girl who is surrounted by funny male characters.
If you liked Fruits Baskets you'll be sure to like Ouran High School Host Club , they have a similar to feel to it, Ouran has a more fan service that will have rolling with laughter.
Both are romantic comedies and have a similar type of humour with many moments where you just can’t help but laugh out loud. Regarding story line, they both centre around a cute, sweet girl who due to different circumstances ends up being surrounded by many hot guys. Both of these animes are pretty hilarious and if you like some romance thrown in with a laugh I think you will love fruits basket and Ouran koukou host club to.
Both about a girl and a bunch of hot guys. VERY comedic and loveable.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran Host Club take place in a high school setting, common threads are life in japan, humor and coming of age. The way in which the characters interact with one another is unique in its own right. The Ouran Host Club is funny with the similarities of fruits basket because both show comedy on the surface but it is the underlining stories that really makes both anime's a must see. Once you watch the Ouran Host club, you will be a new fan before your done watching the series and you will want to make this amazing anime part of your collection.
Both shows are very similar. They both have this lightheartedness about them with the comedy and the romance. Also they both develop into something more mature/serious.
Both animes have light hearted story lines, are reverse harems and take place in a high school setting. Both are of the rom/com genre.
Both are full of cute and hilarous moments which are sure to entertain.
If you like one you are sure to enjoy the other.
-Both are reverse harems
-Both have memorable characters
-Both are hilarious
-Both have some very sad moments in them
-Both are shoujo
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
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is what would happen if Ouran High School Host Club has a baby with Kuragehime. While I think each one is enjoyable, I felt YNSH had more overall depth to it. While it's more famous counterpart may have NO trouble getting viewers, if you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend you watch Yamato Nadeshiko because it's SO funny and awesome!
it kind of has the same storyline about a girl surrounded by cool guys that are always together, its pretty much the same in a lot of ways
Take one unladylike girl, stick her with a handful of dazzling, charismatic boys, and fill in the leftover space with fast-paced, frenetic, occasionally absurd humour. The series take a very similar premise (an androgynous girl works off a debt to a host club by learning to become one of them, a group of dazzling boys attempt to reform their landlady's anti-social niece with free rent as their motivation) and take off running in opposite but equally hilarious and entertaining directions. Similar, but different enough to be fresh and funny instead of the same ol' thing.
Both animes are so funny in a similar way. High school stuff, ''hyper cool' boys and ''alternative'' girl in a lot of LOL situations. The characters are amusing and likeable. In both animes the characters get themselves involved in crazy situations and you really laugh your ass off!!! I find both really similar and both are definitely high recommended: you have to see them!!!
Both are comedy and contain one girl with bishounen boys. the relationship between Tamaki and Haruhi it is remind you in Kyohei and Sunako also in presentation the events are similar.
If you liked Ouran High School Host Club, you'll like Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge too. That is because both of them are about a girl that stays around a group of pretty boys. Together they are going trough a lot of funny adventures. I don't know how to put it, but I think that you won't regret! o.-
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.
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...^_^
One girl surrounded by hot or cool guys. All guys care for the girl so much. The girl in both stories are very lucky. :) Both stories are very funny. Hope you like it! :)
1) pretty boys 2) crazy and outlandish characters and storylines 3) maybe it's a bit insane but it does have a really good theme at it's core
Ouran High School Host Club and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower) may appear different on the surface, but when you start watching, the two series really do have a lot in common. First is the fact that the main, female protagonist is forced to be around an attractive group of men. Although Haruhi, from Ouran, and Sunako, from The Wallflower, act different, they share the same "not a typical woman" kind of personality.
The basic idea of the story is similar as well, but other than that, the stories are pretty different. Because of the difference characteristics of the male protagonists, the story doesn't match very well past the main idea. Overall, the series have the same feel and basic idea for female protagonists. I'm not saying the viewer will love both of them, but if you like one, the other does deserve at least a look.
both are quick-paced comedies about a group of charismatic guys trying to help an atypical kind of girl.
They both are great reverse harem. There is also some similarities in character.
Both have the great humour and bishounens
Hilarious yet can sometimes have more serious moments.
Reverse Harem and unusual heroin
Both have very similar humor and a lot of strange things going on such as crossdressing and awkward moments. They both focus on a girl who is surronded by gorgeous boys but doesn't get all excited about it like most girls would. Plus both have Vic Mignogna!
They're both Reverse Harem animes, only three continuous female characters, two of which don't appear much at the beginning. Both comedy, both animes where the leading female and the leading male seem to have crushes on each other, just in this case, they don't know it. YNSH is a lot darker than Ouran HSHC, but they are both still very cute.
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!
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.
it has an interesting love story and the characters are really funny. i think that if you found kaichou wa maid-sama interesting, then you'll probably enjoy this anime as well
The humor is so similar, plus both stories are about tough women stuck in unfortunate circumstances that they come to grudgingly accept.
Both anime are about a poor girl trying to live their life. Both animes are also romance and comedy!
Both of them are romance, comedy, school and shoujo animes. I find Haruhi and Misaki very similar (both of them are poor girls trying to fit in rich crowd, funny, and act same in similar situations) like Tamaki and Takumi too (blonde bishounens, they both make you fall in love with them in a second). Both of animes are great too.
Both school stories,both main female chracters are inteligent,both cute love stories
There is a situation where the high school students are all working together and form their own group. Eventually the main character of this story also shows love for the female character who starts working as a maid or a server in this case. :]
The characters in both animes are simply amazing. Usui = Tamaki; Misaki = Haruhi
Both animes deal with heroines who are strong willed, smart, and somewhat poor.
Both series also fit into the comedy/school/slice of life genres.
I found them similar because misaki is poor same as haruhi & they both are in love with (takumi in maid sama & tamaki in OHSHC) although it took them a long time to realize their feelings.
Delicious shoujo! OHSHC has another strong willed and somewhat wrecklessly self reliant heroine with not just one but several very good looking guys looking after her (not to mention the lovely Hikaru and Kaoru twins that are "very close"). VERY worth the watch.
I LOVED these 2 animes. Ouran has always been a favorite of mine and when i was recommended Maid-sama i was a little reluctant. but after i started watching i noticed the similarities right away. if you want an anime about gorgeous boys and the tomboy with a secret that steals everyones hearts, these 2 animes are for you! the characters all have similar traits and while watching Maid-sama i was constantly making references back to Ouran! if you're a fan of Ouran then you have to watch Maid-sama and vice versa!
The development in the love story is similar;
The comedy and the events are varied in both anime..
Both anime(s) include a new event in each episode..
However, Host club is funnier :P
But the love story in maid sama is stronger :D
I loved both A LOT!
Both animes have a strong leading female role who have a secret they are trying to keep from fellow students. Both plots have key love interests and several minor love interests that develop throughout the anime.
Even though the stories may seem quite different, the hero and heroine of both shows share a lot of similarities. Tamaki and Takumi (even the names sound similar) are both rich, hot guys who all the girls fall head over heels for but they are only interested in their respective heroines Haruhi and Misaki. The heroines, Haruhi and Misaki, are both diligent girls but come from poor families; they do not care much for boys and focus more on studying and excelling at other things
Both have a driven lead female character that doesn't care too much about guys, and both have the main girl forced somehow to hang out with attractive guys even though they don't want to.
If you're looking for "romantic-comedy", "school-life", or even "cute anime boys" stuff, this is your best choice.
Both mainly light hearted and hilarious. Both have totally oblivious heroines and obviously crushing guys. Amazing characters with defined personalities and lots of lovable supporting characters as well. Fans of the Hitachiin brothers will definitely adore Usui, and vice-versa.
Both anime have a lot of hilarious moments and a lot of cosplaying.
The female leads from both anime, Haruhi and Misaki, are hardworking, intelligent and poor girls who finds the male lead annoying.
Tamaki and Takumi are also similar. They're mixed, rich, hot and have family problems.
I love their anime and manga.
They both have similar art styles. Also, they're both the types of story where the guy likes the girl but the girl isn't really aware of it.
Both anime include a lot of humor and some drama. Overall, these two are on my top lost of anime.
as duas personagens principais são bastante semelhantes,ambas são pobres e quem se apaixona por elas são meninos ricos.
Similar feel and humor. In Ouran, the big thing is host clubs, while in Maid-Sama the big thing is maid cafes - both of which always consist of dressing up and trying hard to appeal to their customers. And obviously the main female leads have some similar characteristics: poor, strong-willed, and followed around by some blonde boy who loves her.
this is both a funny aND romantic
The relationship between Misa-Chan and Usai are alot like the relationsihp the Main characters have in Ouran Koukou Host Club as in she's not interested in him at first and is in away oblivious. But the entire series is hilarious and this is my second favorite show to Ouran koukou Host Club!! Love it!!!
Ouran reminded me a lot of Kaichou Wa Maid-sama for many reasons. The fact Misaki worked for a cosplay café in Maid-sama and in Ouran, most of the main characters work at a host club; which are very similar.
Two of the characters from each show are also similar in personality. Both are natural, poor, and aren't really about frilly girl things. Also the comedy and romance are 2 genres they both have in common.
Both are the similar because they're both a shoujo that would entertain you. Also the main male lead want to keep the occupation of the main female lead a secret. You'll have to watch them to believe it.
Pretty much the same, its just that Ouran is more focused on humor and LoveCom on romance. Love them both SOO much :D
Romantic Shoujo mixed with a good amount of Comedy. Thats what the two have in common the most. Although at first glance the two can seem very different, a further look shows the two are very similar in their storytelling style.
Both hilarious and manage to balance funny scenes with the sad scenes
Both have the same feeling while watching. Both are Shoujo comedies with a really cute love between the characters. Both are exellent!
They are both laugh out loud funny romantic comedies. The story lines aren't that similar but I can almost guarantee if you liked one, you will like the other.
Full of funny moments, both Ouran and Lovely Complex are a great opportunity to have a good time. They also have nice love stories and an atmosphere of friendship and happiness. Risa and Haruhi aren't mere shoujo characters, sometimes they act very similar.
Both have the same kind of wacky humor. The romance in Lovely Complex flies by a little quicker than the one(s) is Ouran, but they're both just as sweet. They'll both have you laughing out loud and you'll definitely fall in love with all the characters from each anime!
Romance-Comedy from a shoujo aspect dosn't get much better than Ouran Host Club, but it does get better. In the form of LoveCom that is.
LoveCom is another anime that feature a simple yet strange idea that kicks off a romantic drama for its female heroine.This goes on to put said girl in many unfamiliar situations as she falls in love, confesses and finnally get the guy.
So if you're a fan of everything romance-comedy and ouran, LoveCom is for you!
Same school life, love problems and a lot of humor ^_^
Both are great romantic comedies!
Its Highschoole ITS FREAKIN AMAZING!
Both happy and cheerful mood and both with character complications. Ouran High School Host club is more of splice of life comedy. Lovely complex develops more of the characters relationships with comedy. Both are great watchers!
Both are very funny to watch!
The story lines are very different though.
Hilarious and deffinately worth watching!!! :D
Both have a story of love and show the difficulties of being along with the person you like.
Lovely complex is an unique and funny anime. The plot is also very cute and the story is full of drama.
Both are slice of life, funny shows where you will find yourself easily relating to the characters as they develop. Both have some romance and focus on boys and girls getting to know each other and develop deeper relationships. Two of my favorites !
It has funny moments as well as serious moments. The characters aren't just crazy and hilarious. They all have backgrounds that aren't really that happy. The main character is also sort of thrown into a world that she isn't used to. There are also many cute guys.
Both are shoujo comedy shows that have romance elements. They have a strong female lead and are in the TOP 100 on MAL.
A big amount of really great comedy is present in both of them.
Skip Beat! can shine with lots of chibifications, hilarious moments, a great way of using different animation styles, a good story and interesting characters.
Ouran Host Club on the other side is a reverse harem at its best and also has lots of these hilarious moments.
Both are shows you shouldn't miss, if you like comedies.
The stories are different, but the main characters are similar - smart, quick, determined, tomboyish "commoners" (though Haruhi is much more mature than Kyoko). The humor is similar too. I think if you like one, you'll appreciate the other one. They are light and funny and great
Ouran and Skip Beat! are both about exceptionally strong women in unlikely circumstances. Both series have striking art and a cast of strapping young bishes to oogle.
Well, the feel that is. Not with the story or anything. Both the leads are such enjoyable characters, Haruhi and Kyoko. I like girls who know how to fight and not the damsel in distress type. These animes well represented the Shoujo Genre. Girl Power!
Simply: both are love-comedies with a lot of bishies.
Main female characters are not very much alike, but they both only have one parent, are commoners, stubborn, nice and brave.
Imo, OHSHC is still better.
Both series have crazy events, lots of humour and little of romantic.
Both are full of hilarious humor!
They both display strong woman that don't give up. The two female characters are usually one's to give advise and make others happier.
Both have comedy, but Ouran High Schoo Host Clubl is definitely funnier than Skip Beat. :]
When it comes to Romance, in Ouran the main characters fail to notice their feelings for eachother through out... just about the entire anime, but they do have moments of romance which make it cute :P In Skip Beat, the romance is more on the sadder side, but it more about understanding the concept of being in love. Then again both guy and girl fail to notice their feelings for one another until later on in the anime.
Funny characters, with beautiful bishounen males.
If you liked the humor, funny acting and animation exaggerations from Skipbeat, you`ll enjoy ouran aswell. (:
Many similar scenes and characters!
They are both hilariouse *sp?* anime and the main character in skip beat have the same personality as tomeki in OHHC with a mad way .Also they are not long and you will enjoy every single moment of them .
Both are hilarious, romantic, with strong female leads. They have similar romantic backgrounds, with both the female leads disliking the male main characters in the beginning, but falling in love in the end. I highly recommend Skip Beat if you liked OHHC!
Both anime is solely based around one protagonist (girl) and the things that happen which changes the way she is.
Ouran and Skip Beat! are equally funny and enjoyable. The main character's inner thoughts are one of the best parts in the show.
Both are hilarious and they are almost on the same line, only difference is that Ouran probably has more drama in it.
If you like School Comedies like School Rumble, then you'll definitely love watching Ouran High School Host Club! OHSHC may take a while to get used to the way the boys handle, but later you'll so going to appreciate it.
Hilarious Comdey, lots of school life, a bit of romance, school festival everywhere and more cos play!
They are similar in some ways, especially since it's about high school students. Ouran is also funny, though not as funny as School Rumble (but SR is reeeally hard to beat in that way, for me at least)
Ouran highschool host club is a love comedy, so is school rumble. both have really funny chibi expressions too. I'de say the only difference is the main characters. both are hilarious.
Both SchoolRumble and Ouran will make you laugh time and again. They are funny, can be poignant at times, are mostly random but do have something of a plot. Both focus on high school students and their interactions with each other. Though they are not entirey similar (no anime can be), if you like one then there is a high chance you will enjoy the other.
very very funny school life romance
They are both romantic school comedies.
Both about a bunch of crazy kids making their way through life at school.
It's fun and playful anime, it really makes you laugh. Although they have a bit different subjects, it's all about love in both anime in a really comic way.
Both are school animes, although School rumble has a more serious plot, they're both very comical, both involve a female and male protagonist, with the male trying to attract the female, however in School rumble, it's more of a love triangle, both are extremely good and funny animes.
If you like one, you'll most likely like the other!
Though the art style is starkly different (probably the hardest part of the transition) they're both absolutely hilarious romcoms which are primarily great because of their lovably, zany characters. If you enjoyed Ouran Host Club and all of its humor but are looking for something geared a little bit more toward males than School Rumble delivers.
There isn't much connecting the two shows besides their genres, as most of the characters don't have counterparts. But that's why I think School Rumble is a great show to follow Ouran with, because it offers a new perspective on a high school romance, uses the same general slice of life format and comedy. If you enjoyed Ouran for it's lovable characters and crazy humor, than you'll love School Rumble all the same, while still getting a taste of something new.
Reverse harem, although La Corda D'Oro is more serious. There ARE quite a few funny areas too. Also, the main characters' (a.k.a. Haruhi and Kahoko) personalities are similar.
Both are reverse harem and is fun to watch though Ouran High is much more fun than La Corda..still im sure you're going to enjoy both series..:D
Both are school anime with a central female character surrounded by a lot of handsome guys. The girl comes to play a significant role in their lives helping them to change. Also, what both animes have in common is a rather ambigous romance line, when practically any male character has a potential to become a love interest for the main heroine.
these two series seem like they don't have an ending. there are a bunch of guys, one girl and most of the guys(or all) are into the girl. lol. anyway, in both of these series you'll cry, laugh, and love these animes. both of these have music too, that is if you like music as much as i do. but these two are just awesome. ^^
If you're a fan of one girl being surrounded by a bunch of guys, then these are the animes for you. All the male love candidates are as differeent as can be, and you've got a nice selection of pairings to choose from ;)
both are worth a look.
it's set in a school, each with a kinda of "club" where the main character gets attached to...
Like Ouran, La Corda has the huge (and very clueless) romantic pairs. And of course, all of the male cast falls for the violin-loving heroine, Kahoko Hino. It's funny and filled with music!
they both having a group of high school students consisting of a girl among a bunch of charming guys who all are liking her. Only that Kiniro no Corda has a second girl but pretty much unthere cause of extream silence she has. with some love complications an challenges.
They're so reminding me of each other!
One girl surrounded by several popular guys at school in both of these series. Yup.
But beyond that, both series contains plenty of drama and comedy. The characters all have various views on the main heroine and she gets to understand more in both series as the episodes progresses.
There's also romance in both series although not fully explored in the anime adaptations; reverse harem.
Both stories are harem. Both stories involve cute guys that will make you fall in love. :)
Both are reverse harem anime set in a "special" school. They both have similar humor and characters.
Both are about a girl on a special school having her own reverse harem. Also, they both have romantic parts and are Shoujou anime.
Ouran is about a host club (obviously) and tends to be more silly, and UtaPri is about singing and is more serious most of the time, but other than that they are pretty similar.
reverse harem, sense of humor, school life! :D
They are both reverse harem series with 'flashy' characters and plenty of humor (as well as a school setting). There are also a few voice actors shared between the two series.
"Sen percen' love" Also a reverse harem. This anime is pretty typical. Selective music school is the base.The main protagonist isn't simply an obstinate (or clueless) love interest to allow the audience to oggle bishies And the bishies aren't the exact same looking someone's definition of a perfect guy. She's the lyricist and they're the performers. even if you don't watch the anime Watch the opening theme song. 'cause it is freaking epic!
It's like Ouran with singing, really. They both have similar character types, and the episodes are set up in the same way. The fun and lovability that characterize Ouran are evident in Prince Sama too. But don't label Uta no Prince Sama as an Ouran Ripoff, it really is much different, but with the same feel. If you cried at the end of Ouran, You'll cry at the end of Prince Sama, I can guarantee that.
Ouran and Utapri both have somewhat harems. Though one is for singing and the other is for entertaining young girls, I would say they are marvelously close. They are both RomComs.
Both series are reverse Harems that focus on the friendship between the main female lead and the boys surrounding her, thus, when Haruhi/Haruka spends time with each different guy we don't get the feeling that she is being unfaithful to the others.
Although their plots are very different, both offer the same type of humor. The characters fall under certain stereotypes, as well. In Hetalia, the characters are stereotypes of the countries they represent. In Ouran, the characters fall under stereotypes of different types of men that would appeal to girls. And of course, both contain plenty of bishonen, but do appeal to all demographics.
BISHIES EVERYWHERE. There are very few girl characters in either anime. That is really the only similarity between the two. That, and Italia's personality reminds me a bit of Tamaki's. Both are good animes, and both deserved to be watched.
Both are great comedies with caricatures of characters, and you will notice similarities between some of the characters too.
Both series contains many fun parodies and humor that is often exaggerated throughout each episode. The main male protagonist from both series have similar personalities.
Both series features more of a lighthearted background and a fun atmosphere rather than anything particularly serious.
The concepts of 'bishounens' are also present in both series with its cast of characters.
If you like stereotypes then this is a good one, however the characters are stereotyped by the country they represent. There is also a similar humor to ouran.
Both are lighthearted mostly comedy drama, with a hint of relationship troubles and drama added in.
Both are fun shows based on stereotypes, though different kinds. Both are personal favorites of mine, too. While Hetalia has less of a story arc than Ouran, they both have similar humor and tone ( I only wouldn't recommend Hetalia if you're really sensitive to racism) But if you love Ouran for the Humor, I can guarantee you'll love Hetalia.
Though the two are very different, both rely on humour to keep the show going. Both have a very upbeat attitude on life and have similar art styles.
These series have the same brand of humor behind them. If you like gay jokes, cheerful school settings, and light romance, both of these series fit the bill. They're both on Netflix too.
Both are really random and are both parodies. They also both have traps.
In both shows there are very interesting characters, crossdressing, comedy and a bit of romance
Both are ridiculous, over-the-top action packed school-life romantic comedies with a lot of charm and great characters. Baka and Test, at least the anime, is also MUCH more female friendly than most school-life romantic comedies (save for series that are actually tagged as shoujo) as it has a lot of allusions to shoujo manga and anime (CLAMP references, yaoi implications, etc). They both take place at fancy academies and have an air of lavishness about them, although you don't get to see the lavish side nearly as much in Baka and Test because we follow Class F.
great animes , lots of fun watching them , never lost interest . funny moments everywhere
3 words. OVER EXAGGERATED COMEDY! This is my favourite type of comedy and I love how the characters in both animes make the simplest issue that usually won't effect your daily life into something over exaggerated and turn it into a very funny scene. If you like gay jokes ,stupid jokes , baka characters then those are definetly here. There hasn't been a dull moment in these series and they easily fit in my Top 5 Comedy animes of all time. So if you like Ouran definetly check Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu! Same goes the other way around.
These two are both funny, tug-on-your-heartstrings shows with oddly intriguing main characters. Baka and Test, in my opinion, is the more funny of the two but both have mild love triangles, crazy hijinks, cute characters and a plot that just somehow fits.
Ouran High School Host Club leans more of the deeper side while maintaining its lighthearted nature. One would likely assume from the name that Baka and Test would be a blatantly stupid-comedy. However you would end up pleasantly surprised with a show based more on witty comedy and overall, friendship.
It involves a really similar style of crazy humor, similar characters, the theme of an oblivious person with people falling for them, several of the same voice actors, and a fun plot line just like B&T, so you should definitely check it out.
I have a strong suspicion that Otome Youkai Zakuro was made to resemble Ouran. Both Tamaki and Agemaki come from a strict family, yet each are kindhearted. Haruhi and Zakuro are both strong, independent women who don't want to rely on others.
The characters are almost identical to those from Ouran, so I suppose they might go together.
Both are great romance anime. Tamaki and Agemaki remind me alot of each other :)
I loved both shows.
The characters in both series are very similar. The prince-type-blonde which ended up being super funny and pathetic (Tamaki and Agemaki), The hyper identical twins (Hikaru & Kaoru and Bonbori & Hoozuki) that are imposible to tell apart but someone does, the one who does is kindda normal and is poke by the twins (Haruhi and Ganryuu), The silent one (Mori-senpai and Riken).Plus both series are Romance and Comedy.
just the right amount of romance, and just the right amount of comedy.
Characters are very similar in an odd way. If you liked one you most likely will like the other :]
Similar rolls among the main characters, and the relationship between the two main male and female protagonist. Twins are also presented in both.
Both have similar art styles and contain characters with similar personalities
A light-hearted circus-like genderbender with some substance.
So far, this anime really reminds me of Ouran. They both have really light-hearted, cute, and silly humor, and the romance aspects of them are pretty fluffy but at the same time enjoyable. On top of that, "being pretty" and such are recurring themes in both, though it's taken more seriously in Kuragehime. Ouran was about a group of good-looking guys, helping to get Haruhi out of her shell and not judging people so quickly. But this one is about one good-looking "girl" showing a group of otaku women how to do the same.
The whole atmosphere of the show is very similar and so is the humor. They're both very carefree and easy to rewatch. They also feature a similar kind of romance - starts out as friendship. Also, the main heroines are both very similar, rather quiet and intelligent. Although Haruhi seems more reserved at times.
Both series have the same atmosphere, though the crossdressing and the stories are rather different.
Kuragehime is Ouran in a way.
Kuranosuke is very similar to Tamaki in terms of personality(other than the cross dressing part)
Tsukimi is well Haruhi as she does not really care around things and thinks of Kuranosuke as weird.
as for the storyline both are similar as Ouran deals with things happening in the Host club while Kuragehime is about the happenings of the Amamizukan
They both are romantic comedies with a hilariously funny bunch of characters that will make you smile throughout the series. Oh... And did I mention that they both have cross-dressers as the main characters? Of course I didn't. LOL! Anyway, Kuragehime isn't as random as OHSHC, but gives you all the chuckles you need.
Both light-hearted and hilarious, a bit of a parody (more Ouran that Kuragehime), with interesting characters that have great chemistry! Also, both have underlying substance to the story amidst all the comedy presented in a way that's not cliche and is highly entertaining.
it is similar in sveral ways. 1. the main character haruhi is made to part of the host club for breaking an item in the club. where as toru is nominated to part of the princess system. 2. haruhi is a girl and dresses as a guy to pay her debt, b/c the host club is made up of all guys. where as toru is made to dress like a girl b/c he and the others in the system are morral builders for the boys at the school. and 3. both characters impact the other characters around them.
When I watched this the show it instantly reminded me of ouran and whenever the princess' smile its just like a ouran host.I actually found this recommendation of the net too and then I remembered I was reading it in a otakuzine in the magazine said that all fangirls should at least try it.So i decided to watch it the tags normally given to it was:comedy,shojo,yaoi,gender-bending,cross dressing,need i say more I really incourage you to watch and dont worry for me it was one of those anime thatyou just go on and on
both about school life and have the playing the opposite gender humor.
if you love that you like the other for sure ^^
both of these are pretty funny! ouran and princess are kind of opposites though,
one it guys trying to please guys and the other is pleasing girls. so watch both!!
Both of them are about handsome guys who cosplay and they both have lots of comedy
Both animes have the gender bender host feel to them and are romantic comedy based. Also the main characters both come from a humble back ground and go to a private school that has a host type club/ group and are dragged into it at first against there will.
Both animes contain yaoi, members from each anime decide to crossdress for benifits and stuff like that, the humor is quite similar and have alot of similarities
Both reverse-harem type shows with similarly intelligent, practical women at the center. Ouran's a little perkier and funnier (and frankly, better) overall, but if you're a fan of the genre and like watching all those pretty, pretty guys falling in love one by one...
Well, first things first. Both are reverse harems, main protogonist is dense towards romantic relaionships AND they don't bow down to the guys :D If you liked Saiunkoku Monogatari, I think you'll like Ouran just as much, or even more! XD
Both have a headstrong, sensible girl as the main heroine, who is surrounded by her own harem of beautiful bishounen :P
This is similar to Ouran Hig hSchool Host club because there is one main female surrounde by lots of pretty, important, and strong boys. Haruhi is a bit like Shuurei because they're both poor in a place where there are only rich people, and (mainly) rich boys.
Both Haruhi and Shurei come from poor backgrounds, but work hard in the elite/male high society in order to achieve their dreams. Both are very good reverse harems.
They are both stories revolving a smart girl that got into a world filled with guys. They are both surrounded by unreasonably rich guys.
The story-lines aren't very similar but the random (and not logical) experiences both Haruhi's experience (well, in melancholy's case, mostly Kyon's experience) are quite similar. While watching Melancholy, I thought of Ouran so yeah. They're both quite funny too.
An anime comedy involving high school girls
Both are [i]very[/i] funny
They both have to do with school clubs (SOS Brigade and Ouran Host Club)
Both Ouran and Suzumiya poke fun at stereotype things within the shoujo genre. Ouran focuses a bit more on romance stereotypes while Suzumiya deals with the most common characters in the Sci-fi part of shoujo. Both are light hearted comedys.
They are both set in and around schools, both are about clubs, and both are just as crazy as eachother, I think anyone who likes one would like the other
Good comedy and also based around a club at a school
Remove Haruhi and Mori, remove the extreme rich school setting and make them all "commoners" and you´ll get Kimi to Boku. Just imagine Ouran without the boys being hosts but instead, Childhood friends, and with a more slow pacing. You´ll get a cheerful mixed blood blonde, a serious intelligent megane, funny twins, and a fluffy boy that likes cute things living their daily lives in extreme fun.
Also, although both center in friendship, both have hints of a love triangle (a straight one) XP
Both have a bunch of guys working together
a rich men, twins, and a another one that I don't know how to describe
If you were fond of Kyouya and the twins in Ouran, you might get happy from watching Kimi to Boku because there are similar characters in it. It has a different vibe, but they're both school anime about the friendship between teenage boys.
the twins reminds me of the hitachiin twins from ouran..
It's about friendship and also about life in school.
Both of them are funny and very sentimental, if you watch one of them you MUST watch the other too =D
Just like fruits basket and Ouran High school host club, hana yori dango has that aspect of reverse harem. But hana yori dango and Ouran high school host club both are stories about a poor girl attending a prestigious school for rich kids. Both poor girls are independent and full of life so all the rich guys are interested in her life and spirit and the differentness. Both anime are wonderful and both are a must watch.
Both animes take place in an expensive private school, and the main characters are from the middle class. Both the main characters are female and the animes are about the main characters relationship with a group of boys that are considered the elite of the school.
Both are the same in that a normal girl entered into a school that normally only rich people can get into. Ouran High School Host Club is more fun and has a lot of comedy, whereas Hana Yori Dango focuses more on relationships and what may be more realistic if a girl were to enter an upper-class school. Ouran High School Host Club focuses on relationships as well but isn't as realistic as Hana Yori Dango.
Poor girl goes to rich school and gets acquainted with hot guys.
There are pretty obvious similarities between these two anime. Both anime are romance shoujo where the mc is a poor girl studying in a school for rich kids. She will get herself involved in a group of male friends thus the start of her not so ordinay high school life.
It's been a while since I've rewatched Ouran back in 2009 but I will never forget how it made me laugh and moved me with each character development. Truthfully, I've only seen 3 eps so far of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun but I've laughed and giggled in each one. I like the main heroine, Sakura, because like Haruhi, she doesn't get carried away into each character's unique world, and like in ouran, the guys are handsome, and plus, gekkan shoujo has their own Prince. (And Nozaki-kun's tall height and sexy short black hair reminds me of Mori-senpai.)
I'm highly recommending this anime because of its high school rom-com qualities and not because of the "reverse-harem" label some people have stuck on it. It's not a reverse-harem and it would be a shame if people overlooked it because they thought it was. Its demographic is actually Shounen and published under Square Enix according to wiki. BUT, don't let that fool you either. It doesn't seem to have any ecchi scenes or slight yuri fanservice. So far, it's just about Nozaki-kun and the people around him. If you're cursing me for not telling you the plot right now, it's cuz I can't. Sakura is in love with Nozaki and he's oblivious, but it doesn't seem to be the main plot right now. You just have to see it for yourself. It's just really funny and the characters are really handsome.
If you're a shoujo anime fan that's looking for something to watch but is slightly sick of "handsome, rich, young man suddenly falling in love with a strong-willed heroine" but still wants a little bit of love in your life or a Kaoru-Hikaru fan that would like to indulge in the innocence of very very subtle gay otp couples that are never meant to be. (disclaimer warning: you must have a very sexy imagination to see these subtle pairings.) I have no idea if this could be for you, I just wanted to say that it's probably too late to save you guys haha xD
SUMMARY TIME: All joking aside, If you are looking for a reverse harem just like Ouran, then this anime is probably not what you want. If you are looking for something funny, (ongoing as of right now as I'm typing,) AND have bishounen in it, then look no further. This is it. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun.
A bunch of insane, lovable losers get together in a club of some sort and beautiful, beautiful shenanigans occur. Gorgeous comedy in both of them, though Ouran is more romantic and Nozaki is more pure comedy.
It is also a shoujo parody, with colorful unique characters and a goofy, light energy. (And if you like Nozaki-kun, Ouran is the ESSENTIAL shoujo parody show, go watch it NOW!)
Fan of Mori-senpai from Ouran High Host Club? Check out Nozaki from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun who you'll probably like because they're very similar
- Have otaku humor
- Make fun of typical, cliche shoujo anime
- Umetarou reminds me of Mori
- Mikoto reminds me of Tamaki
- The "roses/flowers in the background" thing
Both are harem, one girl and bishounen guys. Another think that is similar is the wealth part (only Haruhi wasn't rich). But the difference is that Ouran is more lighter than Hanasakeru Seishounen.
In both, the female heroin is intelligent and strong, as well as surrounded by a number of shining male leads
Reverse harem, Shoujo, Bishounen, affluent characters, romance. Hanasakeru is more plot oriented though and has little or no comedy. Watch Hanasakeru Seishounen if good-looking and wealthy characters were things you found most captivating in Ouran High School Host Club.
both are about a group of boys liking one girl, and their adventures. although hanasakeru seishonen takes place around the world, ouran high school host club takes place mainly in school.
Both anime have reverse harem, although neither of them are extremely predictable. Ouran High School Host Club is more comedic, while Hanasakeru Seishounen is more of a drama
Revolutionary Girl Utena and Ouran host club are cut from the same cloth...
They both parody many shoujo anime themes such as roses.
The shows have very similar art, and both use a fair amount of symbolism.
They are both set in prestigious boarding schools for the rich with a french architecture design.
The comedy is similar using abstract arrows and creative use of camera angles.
Both shows also have a lead female character that dress as a boy.
Both have strong homosexual themes and jokes.
On the other hand Utena is much darker and also part action show, featuring a duel nearly every episode.
I believe if someone likes one of these shows it will carry over to the other (unless your against incest and rape)!
As I looked through the list of recommendations on Utena's list, I was surprised by the complete lack of Ouran High School Host club. First of all, I noticed extreme similarities in the art styles. Both are drawn very angular. Both center around a boyish female that (in the Utena Movie) are confused for male.
I realize there are some differences in the plots. But I just got this strong feeling that OHSHC was based of Utena.
Both feature a masculine girl for a main character, lots of male characters drawn to look attractive to female viewers, a big and beautifully built academy, and focus on friendship and growing up. Roses play a significant role in both stories, and nearly everybody has some decent character development.
Revolutionary Girl Utena and Ouran High School Host Club are both anime that critique shoujo, featuring a female lead that wears male clothing and strong themes of homosexuality.
The difference is that Ouran is a light-hearted parody, whereas Utena is a much darker and satirical in nature. Ouran is a simple work intending to make the audience laugh. Utena is a very dramatic and complex psychological work intending to make the audience think.
Ouran and Utena share a lot of similar things. Crossdressing protagonist? Check. Lots, and lots or roses? Check. Gorgeously designed academy for wealthy students? Check.
The main difference is Ouran is more geared for comedy, and Utena is...a bunch of things.
If you liked Ouran you'll probably like Vampire Knight too! The humour, artstyle and coloring of Vampire Knight kinda reminds me of Ouran, but also the fact that it's centered about a girl and many boys around her. Anyway, I can really recommend them both!
Both are shouju romance anime series that revolve around a high school school girl and two or more boys.
Same type of shojo style as Vampire Knight and the same kind of humor, but the plots are different enough that you'll be entertained by both.
They are similar because they both revolve around reverse harem and there both romantic like. & Their both AMAZING.
The drawing reminds me of Vampire Knight. Also, Haruhi's confusion about her feelings is just like Yuuki's. Both anime are easy and really interesting to watch, you can't stop once you started.
This show has been getting similarities from toradora to soul eater. I would say the relationship of shizuku and haru is kinda similar to the one that haruhi and tamaki share in ouran high school except you make tamaki and rebel instead of a prince.
Ouran and Tonari no Kaibutsu kun are both romance/comedy animes. Both of these animes are one of the most hilarious romance animes that i have seen.
The characters are different although the main characters have quite a few resemblances. For example Haruhi in Ouran is a smart girl who is focused on her studies and a strange guy wont leave her alone, this is the same with Shizuku from Tonari no Kaibutsu kun, she is also a hard working girl fully focused on her studies and a very strange boy wont leave her alone. But even though these two main female characters are similiar in that aspect, they are both different in so many different ways. Also both the main guy characters are good-looking but although Tamaki is popular, Haru is seen as a dangerous person by everyone adn finds it difficult to fit in.
All in all, people who enjoyed Ouran will definitely enjoy this anime and laugh for sure. This anime also has more romance than the Ouran anime. So yeah, watch it if you liked ouran, i guarantee you'll love it.
It's romantic, and funny.
They both have some weirdness and fan-service, but both very good and awesome!
Both have cold, "uncaring" female characters who love to study and a funny, male love interest who rarely, if ever studies but does his own thing. Both parties (in both anime) can be quite naive which makes for funny misunderstandings (true shoujo trope at work). Great secondary cast in both
They have similar elements of comedy, and are fun to watch.
• Reverse Harem
• Romantic Comedy
• Lovable and funny mains
• Funny anime
They both have slow romances and are somewhat reverse harems. They were also both very funny. Although Ouran and Kamisama were about different things, they both focused on character and relationship building and growth. They are both fun and light animes, both really great mangas too, with satisfying endings. I liked Nanami (Kamisama) and Haruhi (Ouran) because neither of them were excessively girly. Though they are different, they were both very strong female leads.
Kamisama Kiss and Ouran High School Host Club are both shoujo animes. The main character in both animes have a lot it common. For example, at first they seem shy, and unsure of themselves, but they turn out to have strong personalities. Both Haruhi (Ouran High School Host Club) and Nanami (Kamisama Kiss) are surrounded by guys who care for them.
In general, the way both series evolve is similar, and they both have an identical comedic tone.
I loved both these anime series very much, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do !
The plot is VERY similar: main char. enrolls in an elite school and meets very interesting and good-looking guys, and tries to fit in. The only difference is, Ouran's main character is a girl, and GH's is a guy.
They are both cute, crazy animes.These animes are suitable for all ages .And believe me watching both anime will be a great experience
If you like the character of the boys in' Ouran' then you will definetly those in gakuen heaven (the boys are even cuter)also. And yeah, the art ,cuteness and innocence are even better in gakuen heaven than 'ouran' however Ouran has much more comedy in it.
There is a great similarity in both animes. Both animes puts you in the same mood. In Ouran high school host club, the story is about a girl surrounded by a pack of crazy and funny rich guys while 'Gakuen heaven' is a boys X boys anime in which a boy named Keita is surrounded by strange, funny,and crazy boys who are elder to him.
When i saw this one, it reminded me of OHSHC in a way, but its hilarious, and both Haruhi and Saito are both kinda clueless of the people around them (like how Tamaki obviously likes Haruhi (but Tamaki doesnt know it) and how Louise likes Saito (but doesnt know it and tries to deny it)). Did i mention they're both hilarious?? And perverted, in a way.
Though they are set in entirely different worlds.. they both carry the same sort of vibe. They both deal with the whole rich verses commoner issue, also both have similar characters types. You might not see it at first, but while I was watching Zero I kept thinking "Wow! This is strange, but this reminds me of Ouran."
Your lost,confused, and your forced to work?!! What? Relate to characters in this anime series as 1 person is "forced" to work. There`s no such things as coinsidence, only fate. Fate can be cruel, but you just might like it. The characters comes to life because they are soo human like, hilarious!
When I watched, immediately comes to my mind Ouran Koukou Host Club image. First the "Prince", then the "Intellectual", after that the "Big guy" and finally the "Childish" one with a "teddy bear" in his hands. What's the difference? This is not a club, they are vampires. Maybe I forget the twins... but well, until now is the same.
Diabolik Lovers is like the dark version of OHSHC .
Yui = Haruhi
Kanato = Hunny (Both a 'loli' type)
Shuu = Takashi
Reiji = Kyoya (Both cold hearted)
Ayato = Tamaki (Both say they are princes)
-Both reverse Harems
-Both have good looking guys
Ouran High School Host Club + Dark theme = Diabolik Lovers
Both series involve a young girl suddenly thrust into a world full of wealthy young men. Both are reverse harems with wacky antics and a crazy cast, however Brothers Conflict takes itself seriously whereas Ouran is purely comedic.
same idea of how there is one girl surrounded by amazing or cool guys
Both are reverse harem/male harem and are cheesy, but in a way that will make you smile. Both have identical twins (well, technically in Brothers Conflict they are triplets but two of them are identical). Brothers Conflict focuses more on romance while Ouran Koukou Host Club has more comedy. BOTH HAVE CROSS DRESSERS!!! :)
First off, let me just say that both Hayate no Gotoku and Ourah High School Host Club are zany, random, and absolutely hilarious shows. I'd say they're a definite must watch if you're into comedies.
How are they similar?
Hayate no Gotoku has our hero, Ayasaki Hayate, who becomes a "combat butler" to pay off his debt to Nagi, who paid off his outrageous debt to some Yakuza; Yakuza of whom his parents borrowed a ton of money from, lost said money in gambling and crazy dreams, and then decided to skip town and leave Hayate behind with the debt. Boy is HnG a whacky show...
As for Ouran, our heroine is Fujioka Haruhi, who has a debt to pay off as well. Commoner Haruhi accidentally broke an 8 million yen vase belonging to the her prestigious high school's host club. And she's gotta pay it off by way of cross-dressing as a guy in the host club after school.
Both are about high school students owing a debt to rich kids, and both the main characters are clueless about the people that have crushes on them. Although Haruhi in Ouran High School Host Club has no choice but to cross-dress, Hayate from Hayate the Combat Butler (Hayate no Gotoku) is forced to cross-dress at alternate times by his master and his master's maid (I find that somewhat similar). Both of these are very random, and have awkward situations, although Ouran High School Host Club is shojo and Hayate the Combat Butler is shonen, I think they're both great. And hilarious. XD
In both anime, the protagonist that is poor is forced to work to rich characters in order to pay off a debt. There is also a clear distinction between the poor protagonist and rich characters, which is used for comedic effect. Hayate no Gotoku could be considered a harem, while Ouran High School Host Club is a reverse harem. Mostly in Ouran High School Host Club, and a bit in Hayate no Gotoku, there is a cross-dressing element.
Ouran is about a girl who ends up pretending to be a guy while Tenshi na Konamaiki is about a girl who used to be a guy, until a curse turned him into a girl. Both are hilariously funny series' about friendship with a touch of romance. Both have many heartwarming moments as well as crazy hi-jinks.
The characters in both also have similarities since they are parodies of commonly seen types of characters that at the same time are very lovable and dynamic. Ouran has the prince-type, the cool-type, the quiet one, the lolita, and the mischievous "boy's love" twins. Tenshi na Konamaiki has the female best friend, the macho man, the bishounen, the average high-school boy, and the pervert (who thankfully is downplayed).
I think anyone who liked one of these series' ought to give the other a chance.
Well they some similarities, ouran is about a girl pretending to be a guy to pay off his debt to the host club and tenshi na konamaiki is about a boy who got turned into a girl by magic.both heroine got some idiotic guys fallen in love with them making even more idiotic things...
they are both really fun to watch, so if you liked one of these you will also like the other one!
sry, my first recommendation :D
Both of the main characters aren't exactly normal female characters. In Ouran Koukou Host Club, Haruhi doesn't really care about appearances as a women and in Tenshi na Konamaiki Megumi doesn't want to become more feminine.
Both are very funny and certainly will be enjoyable if you found Tenshi na Konamaiki enjoyable.
Cute guys in a high school setting who happen to have their lives revolve around one girl.
Both anime are shoujo and romantic themed.
Both series are reverse Harem: meaning a main girl character surrounded by a lot of beautiful awesome boys.
The atmosphere in both stories is very cool, plus both anime give a well developed background for every character which give to the pubblic a better understanding about their personalities.
Both share a very unique and pretty good art style for the character design.
Also, Starry Sky has a cast of many famous Seiyuus while Host Club is litterally a masterpiece for shoujo-genre lovers.
I highly recommend to watch both :3
LOTS of bishies. One girl.
Both cross-dress characters were force to join the club due to debt.
Both involves cross dress main characters.
Both have the same comedy and gender bender genre.
Both cross dress character's serves as the club's dog.
And both also have the same harem element.
One cross dressed character from one anime was a girl, while the other is a boy.
One anime has an extra romance genre while the other is more on comedy.
One was a 26 episode and 23 minute long anime, while the other anime is more of an 12 episode omake.
The cross-dress character from one anime was rescued by the student council members and paid-off his debt, while the cross-dress character from the other anime was duped into joining the club.
The same situation where the Mc's were force to cross-dress even tought they are upright straights. However, since they got in such mountain of debt, they have no choice, the difference, one is a full 26 anime while the other one is a 4 minute omake.
The same plot where it involves the MC character who has incur a lot of debt and has to pay it off by being the club's underling, except the MC character involve in one anime was a girl dress as a boy, while in the other anime it is boy dress as a girl.
Both series have a group of cute guys who do things to make women happy. The main characters of each are similar (despite the fact that Tamaki is much more spontaneous than Nokoru). CLAMP School Detectives has more "mystery," and Ouran has older characters, but chances are if you enjoyed one then you'll enjoy the other.
Both animes are about some boys paying atention in making girls happy. Both show a high-class school, and are very similar in the way the caracthers talk. Both are very funny and highly recommended!!
Bisco Hatori was almost definitely inspired by CLAMP School. Aside from the obvious Tamaki/Nokoru similarities, both are fun, sometimes silly series that take place at a huge school with branches for each age group. Both focus on a club made up of cute boys for girls.
Does this website remind anyone of facebook or is it just me?
If you like the reverse harem thing and you wouldn't mind it so much if Haruhi were actually a boy...I guess this series would be for you. This series doesn't quite reach Ouran's height in brilliant characterizations or comedic wit but it does have its charms.
both are really great light, funny stories with a plot developing over time. both have a harem-like/shonen-ai-ish feel to them
the stories are totally different but it has a similar feel and the humour is similar. both highly enjoyable
Both have to do with school and comedy with a little drama as well, a interesting melody (music) that plays in both series.
comedy is main focus. similar humour, both extremely funny.
both uses music effectively to emphasis particular feelings, as well as to increase the mood ~ in a masterpiece kind of way.
both have unique characters, which have excellent developments, having elements of drama when necessary. brilliant interactions between the characters as well, with hints of romance.
both are school slice of lifes.
BOTH ARE MASTERPIECES!!!!
Both are romantic comedies about unique, strong girls that make their own path in life, but while Haruhi is intelligent, Nodame is rather a music prodigy
Both are really funny at the beggining and throughout the series. But they both make you feel sad at the end. But Ouran isn't as sad at the end as Angel Beats! is.
Both of these show have a similar type of comedy. They are both mainly character driven, with characters that are either stereotypes or brake the stereotype. While Angel beats is on the heaver side, there are episodes of both shows where it is just fun being with the characters.
In both, the main character is forced into a school club and harem that they do not wish to be part of. Despite being different genders, both main characters are not really into the antics that the club members continuously crack up.
Ouran has more character development and romance, while SYD is comedy focused. However, the hilarity that ensues in both series is more or less the same.
both of them involve clubs and perversions. only diffrence is that Seitokai Yakuindomo is reverse harem while Ouran high school host club is Harem. They both have enjoyable humour, perversions, unique members of the opposite sex, super genius members.
They have a very similar feel to them as two people (Haruhi and Teppei) are thrust into the world of rich folk and parties and such. The two may be TOTALLY different people, but at the start of their journeys into the world of riches they are both extremely worried at what would be next to happen.
In all, they are similar anime and If you like one of them you will like the other.
they both have to do with a main character trying to fit into a rich school. their both harems and it has to do with a wealth person loving a not so wealthy person.
Edgar is just like Tamaki (dazzling, handsome, blonde and self-centered) and Lydia is a little bit like Haruhi (natural and easy-going). Great romance comedies both!
Both series have the same humor. And if you liked tamaki from ouran then you will like Edgar from hakushaku too and of course if you liked edgar you will love tamaki. Both animes made me giggle all the time when I watched it. And I fell in love with both the main characters.
Without doubts both series do not share same nor similar genres but:
- The main character in both series has a cheerful, cool and brave personality.
- Both main male characters are played by the same Seiyuu: Miyano Mamoru
- Both made by Studio BONES
Star Driver kinda gives the feeling to have Tamaki (Hos Club) with a mecha background.
So somehow i feel to advice to watch one if you liked the other :3
Star Driver is just like Ouran, but with mecha fights. Especially in episodes 4 and 5, where the show shamelessly steals some of Ouran's comic devices. (Fantasy sequences with roses all over the place and snarky captions.) Both series are made by Studio BONES.
Both anime's are set in a world full of richdom and welth. I think the art is also kind of similar, but I don't know if other people agree. Kuroshitsuji also has those random funny moments like Ouran High School Host Club. Here's a funny fact: Both main-characters (in Ouran High School Host Club it's Haruhi, and in Kuroshitsuji Ciel) are voiced by the same seiyuu! Ouran High School Host Club & Kuroshitsuji both have shounen-ai hinted themes.
Although Kuroshitsuji is obviously much darker than Ouran, they share a similar type of comedy. If you're feeling a little depressed after finishing Kuro, Ouran is the cure with it's bright, funny cast and ridiculous escapades that will leave you in stitches. If you have just watched Ouran, Kuro has a darker theme and more intriguing storyline, but also has memorable characters and slapstick humour.
Probably more people have seen Ouran High School Host Club than I My Me! Strawberry Eggs, but if you haven't seen it, it's about a girl persuaded into posing as a guy at school. Otherwise the guys in the host club are definitely of the shounen type because they too frequently cross the gender line. The show is a hilarious comedy satirizing the whole boys love genre among other things. Even if you didn't like Strawberry Eggs, you might like this!
both revolves around school life
Both are light-hearted slice-of-life shows with just the right amount of romance, comedy, and drama. Overall, the general atmosphere gives off a "refreshing" feeling as well.
they are both based around romance, and though they have different storylines, the general feel (in some aspects), comedy, character development are similar. both brilliant slice-of-life drama romantic comedies which is different from the usual harem. both how slice-of-lifes should really be like. also, morita = Tamaki (to an extent)
not exactly similar, but if you liked the humour in kare kano, you will defineately love the humour in ouran!! both school relaxing comedy atmospheres.
Hideaki Asaba a man who's background grows roses and who loves entertaining ladies... and who we love to laugh at. If you liked this character from His and Her Circumstances, You will love Ouran a show filled with " rich young men with way to much time on their hands who entertain beautiful young giels who also have too much time." His and Her Circumstances is a light Romance, Slice of Life, Drama and Ouran is Comedy Parody, they still have this in common!
Gakuen Alice has the same silly sense of humor as OHSHC. The characters are quite different, but, I dunno, I find that these two series just go hand in hand. If you read the Gakuen Alice manga as well as the OHSHS manga, you'll find that there are some characters from both stories that have quite dark pasts. Both heroins, Mikan and Haruhi, are loved by a variety of different characters. They themselves, however, are mostly clueless to this love. MOSTLY. ;)
They're both very cute, very funny, and definitely worth a look.
Both of the anime are about school. the school that is shown in the both anime are the private school which only for the nobles.But there is one poor girl enter that school.Both of them have the best comedy ever. So everytime you watch them you will laugh non stop..haha ^_^
nothing is particulary similar in these animes. but both are really fun to watch. if you liked the funny parts in nabari no oh than you will definately love ouran high school host club. well i did ...
Both are slice-of-lifes with comedy and romance, both center around clubs and their daily happenings, and both have some of the best character interaction in all the anime I've seen.
Both Mimami ke and Ouran will make you laugh time and again. They are funny, can be poignant at times, are mostly random though Ouran does have something of a plot. Though they are not entirey similar (no anime can be), if you like one then there is a high chance you will enjoy the other.
Both these anime focus on the relationships of a group of people (this is probably true for most anime though): in Ouran it is the 'Host Club' members while in Working it is the part time workers at the family restaurant 'Wagnaria'. Comedy, a variety of characters with distint personalities and quirks, a slow and comfortable pace and episodes following the daily life of the characters (in the Host Club and in the family restaurant) without a strong plot (this is more true for Working!!) are similar elements in both. Ouran has more character development and shows the pasts of the characters while Working!! has a lighter focus on this. Working may seem to have a lot of repitition - Takanashi always gets hit by Inami, chief is always serving the manager - but this is not really a negative aspect because it just shows the daily life at the restaurant which is mostly unchanging. However, we do learn more about the characters, they do develop a little, but that is not really the main focus of the anime.
In general both are fun to watch. You may not necssarily enjoy the other if you liked one, but there is a probability of doing so. Try a few episodes in any case.
If you fell in love with tamaki (or any other host for that matter)then you'll 100% like howl.Even the love story is similar (haruhi=sophie)
If you dont know anything about this howl's moving castle and probably you've seen some pictures and your not going to think twice,thrice or go over it 100x if you dont watch it you'll regret.
They both have a female main character but they have a more manly attitude to them. Also, both the animes are made up of smaller stories that effect the ending. Both the animes are really good.
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi is no where as famous as Ouran, but the similarities are there.
The genres of the two shows are Comedy/Romance, with a touch of action near the final episodes.
Both the series follows a high school girl, in a club, where her closest friends are all in that club.
Both main male character seems useless and screwed up at the start, but later on, as the series progresses, we find out there's more to him than meets the eye.
In both series, one of the main character's friend include is a lolita type of character, looking cuter and younger than they actually are.
1. Same type of exaggerated, stereotypical, ironic and satirical kind of comedy.
2. Same settings -- it both take place in a private school. (Though it is not directly stated or emphasized in The World God Only Knows.)
3. Both series stereotypes love, romance and the kind of characters.
4. One of the main characters is very intellectual, manipulative and has that sexy nerd feel.
5. One of the main character is surrounded by the opposite sex.
Both feature an introverted protagonist, who joins a club, and makes new friends. While Oreki Houtarou is more into solving mysteries than serving wealthy ladies, if you're like me and love Ouran for its characters and humor, Hyouka is a good choice. And of course, there is a hint of romance too.
The plots of these two shows are very different, but if you're looking for a refreshing comedy they have a lot in common! Both shows make references to various media, such as manga.
Both anime have cute guy characters that are mischievous, smart, narcissistic, and meanies that will keep you entertained and wanting more all the time. You wont regret watching and it will make you laugh with a small taste of romance.
- similarly enticing /romance/, with two individually /lovable mains/
- same sense of /humour/ that ties in with the relationships, very enjoyable, with a /friend-family/ feel that sucks you in
- around the same number of episodes, so /similar format/, but different story
- very /unique music/ and themes
- /not too serious/ most of the time, but doesn't take away from the plot
~ In comparison, based slightly more on /attitudes to class, funny stereotypes, and romance/, slightly tongue in cheek at times
~ ever-so-slightly more slapstick
~ has one or two /filler episodes/, rather than a /final 'special'/
B Gata H Kei is a fun, hilarious, romantic, very perverted anime that i really enjoyed! These two animes are at the top of my list and i think if you liked one, you'll like the other.
they are both awesome comedies and both are in like a school setting and both have fantastic chracters.
also the characters/character interactions sort of like similar or something cause that reminds me of each show too.
Haruhi seems not to care about being mistaken for a boy and is happy to play along. Hourou Musuko takes a more serious look at kids in this situation. It's not a comedic series, but it's extremely touching.
They both are about school. Aikatsu is about school girls and Ouran is about school guys. They both have beautiful special effects. And they both have a beautiful character. So if you like Ouran, you should watch Aikatsu, if you like Aikatsu, you should watch Ouran!
Ouran is very different from Ginban, it's a bit more mature as well as more slice-of-life-ish. But I still find the humor in both stories very similar. They both are funny, sweet, romantic shows. Plus, the main female character in both is very strong!
Well, there are lots of bishies trying to get to one girl. This girl, angelique, is quite dense and a little clumsy with her emotions and compassions that sometimes she makes the guys hopelessly romantic for her. She wants to protect the universe and those somewhat like guardians against those evil spawn... even though some of the bishies will risk their lives for her... she kinda like the lead girl here in ouran, haruhi, doesn't care bout herself only of other's well being...
Light and funny, the two stories are different, but both are heartwarming and simply great. If you like one, you'll definitely appreciate the other one!
They're both really sweet romantic anime, kobato is about a girl who is trying to fulfill her wish by helping ppl. Their character is pretty similar since they are both clueless when it comes to love.
Although these two are different by reality and fantasy they both include the misadventures of friends and are both quite enjoyable. Both stories are centered around two girls of both which the guy falls for.
Well, if you like the kind of anime that combines comedy with a slice of life, then the Aria series is for you, though the themes are completely different, I found that it appealed to much of the same things... An extremely prevalent and light sense of humor, but is serious when it should be.
Well, the first episode started on a school... there are lots of bishies trying to get to one girl. This girl, angelique, is quite dense. She wants to protect the orb hunters or those somewhat like guardians against those evil spawn... even though some of the bishies will risk their lives for her... she kinda like the lead girl here in ouran, haruhi, doesn't care bout herself only of other's well being...
One boy (with OHSHC it's a girl) coming into the lifes of other, quite important boys. I think Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club and Yuuta from Marginal Prince are the same- they try to help other people out, talk to them, get to know their past (and sometimes future), warms one another's heart, help them sort their problems out. It may not be the same setting, but OHSHC was the first other tv serie that sprang into my mind when I watched Ouran High School Host Club. You can always watch a trailer on youtube if you're not sure whether you'll like the serie.
This is an alternative idea in which a boy is pretending to be a girl. It has a different story line and is not as good and popular as Ouran Host Club in terms of quality, but the plots give you a somewhat same amusement. Give it a try ^_~
Soul Eater uses a similar style of humour to Ouran, and this is due to the same staff from both series being part of the team working on Soul Eater. Both series are by Studio Bones.
The waiters in Ristorante not only capture the hearts of their customers like the boys of the Ouran Host Club, but they also all have their own unique attributes despite most of them wearing glasses. Nicoletta, like Haruhi, questions the strange yet entrancing ways of these gentlemen and eventually becomes fond of the warm atmosphere surrounding them and the restaurant they call home. If you want a more European version of Ouran without all the frills and sparkles (and a bit of pasta, too), then give Ristorante Paradiso a try.
You just gonna die laughing watching either of them.Gto reckless jokes and action(by onizuka) plus random jokes(and very lovable characters that develop nicely) of ouran == pure fun!!! And of-course both of them are about school. Dont miss!!
Both are slice-of-lifes with comedy and romance, both center around clubs and their daily happenings, and both have some of the best character interaction in all the anime I've seen.
Same as Special A in thats its a school setting and has lots of funny. The only diffrence is that it has zodiac reference but its still very good.
The main characters in both animes starts at new school, special schools where the main characters are different from the others on the school, they have a secret, there are a lot of humor in both of the animes, the the main characters both animes join clubs :P and (this is the last one, i promise) they are both about love.
Both are slice-of-lifes with comedy and romance, both center around clubs and their daily happenings, and both have some of the best character interaction in all the anime I've seen.
Both Series emotionally invest you, though in two completely different ways.
Though, I've found a lot of people who love FMA, love Ouran High School Host Clubs, they're both very charming, and can be very heartwarming. (Also, the Dubs have VERY similar casts, almost everyone from Fullmetal Alchemist, will show up in Ouran sooner or later.)
-the comedy is really similar, you'll definitely be laughing
-the many hot guys that surround the main character
-in Ouran, you really get to know the characters past their surfaces, and the same goes for Shugo Chara!
-only difference is that it's magical girl. Romance is similar though, the guys are hotttttt!!!
The female protagonists are very similar. They are strong, funny and yet vulnerable all at the same time.
The relationships they enter into with the male characters are also great because they develop more naturally over time. They are not sappy or fake but there is a lovely tenderness and protectiveness towards one another that was great and heartfelt.
So overall witty and lovable characters, great stories, nice artwork..
Well, I think that since Tamaki Suou from Ouran High School Host Club talks and talks and talks, he could possibly out-talk Watashi from Tatami Galaxy in terms of monologues. Both shows as a result of these two characters fill the silence with a whole lot of "Blahblahblah" in a very amusing way--either over-hyper or over-monotone--whatever it may be these two individuals easily make the Japanese language seem so dang art-y and word-y. Watashi and Tamaki, also, have the worst time trying to successfully woo the girls of their dreams (Akashi and Haruhi, respectively) who seem to be single, smart, and generally "normal" if not a little hard to approach. Both shows do not really focus on a successful romantic love story...more like the hi-jinks that come in being young, awkward, and failing; it is a miracle if they have a lucky moment or two that fulfills what they've wished for deep down. The side characters are very important to the main characters; however, the main characters Tamaki and Watashi sometimes dismiss them as not as important as their love interest or whichever narrow or broad interest they are pursuing.
Both main protagonist girls pretend to be a boy. Both main boy and girl fall in love. RomeoXJuliet is more dramatic, less comedic, and less light than Ouran, though. Ouran is mostly comedy, as to RomeoXJuliet is more of Drama. But, if you liked how the girl pretends to be a boy and then falls in love kind of set, then you would enjoy this one/ the other. (:
Similar character types among the main group. You have the twins, the glasses-wearing guy with short dark hair with the occasional short fuse, the exuberant blond guy, and uh . . . okay, so there isn't really a genderbending person in Kimi to Boku, there IS a guy who's a tad on the feminine side when it comes to interests, and who originally had long hair and got confused for a girl in the first half of the first season. Also similar humor type, though for Kimi to Boku it is much more subtle and understated.
Ouran High School Host Club OHSCHC and Tokyo Mew Mew are HILARIOUS, somewhat kid-friendly, well made shows. There is a small of romance in OHSHC, but Tokyo Mew Mew has a little more. Each show is fun and has a very "happy and enjoyable" atmosphere.
They are both really humoristic, sometimes perverted humor in different situations. Jin in Kannagi are a bit of a pervert, and so are the twins in ouran with their brotherly love. I really love the humor in both animes! they've got 10 points both from me! <3
Both revolves around school.
They are both cute, crazy animes.These animes are suitable for all ages .And believe me watching both anime will be a great experience.
Ouran revolves more around school boys and one girl(dressed as a boy)
Gokujou Seitokai has several tomboys who govern over their school (There is also a mad puppet in this anime). They do several exciting and funny things.The story is simple and crazy... not serious type
The story is very similar because it revolves around a central character(who actually kindda look alike) surrounded by members of the opposite sex; also, the main story isn't love, but it seems to involve all of the characters.
