Same author, same producer, extremely similar stories and characters. I do prefer Seikaiichi Hatsukoi over Junjou Romantica, because the characters of JR are slightly more annoying. Also, more importantly, the relationships in JR feel forced and unnatural. Here is a description of them---
1. I actually love your bro, but now I suddenly love you, a highschooler, because you showed pity on me;
2. We grow apart because of our inattentiveness towards each other (read: we grow bored of each other) and so we don't speak for years when you go abroad, thus we have sex in library to solve all our problems;
3. I love you, but I am cursed because you married my sister, yet now you suddenly become gay and a cradle robber and want me, a highschooler.
That sums up the relationships of JR. Compare with SH 's relationships, which suffers much less from this---
1. highschool love, break up through misunderstanding, renewal of feelings when meeting after many years, but denial of feelings on one side, plus on the other side a jealous overprotective friend who once might have been something more than a friend;
2. three long time friends, but there are more-than-friends feelings running around, which causes jealousy and confusion;
3. love at first sight for a pretty face, and a jealous ex-one night stand.
SH's relationships have a better basis, which is why the story is more believable and therefore better IMO.
The story was created by the same author. And they both take place in the same story world. If you like one, you'll like the other.
Though nowhere near as good, Sekaiichi follows Junjou's style of storytelling by showing three couples all somewhat related to each other. It's more of the same, but the relationships are far less varied which is disappointing in my opinion. However, if you like one you may like the other just as much.
Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is basically Junjou Romantica again, but this time everyone is in the manga business.
Same author, same environment, same types of characters and relationships. If you've liked one , you'd enjoy the other as well.
Both animes are about boy love. They both show 3 couples. In both animes, in all the couples, one of them works in the literature business. Sometimes it's an author, others are editors and others are literature professors.
Both by the same author, boy love, focused in three different couples
The same mangaka, very similar style, if you like one you sure liked the other.
They're both by the same people, so they have similar artstyles and story lines. They're also both yaoi, and all yaoi-fangirls will love both these animes. Trust me on this :3
If you like one, there's no way you can't like the other. Seriously. They feel like the exact same show. Check out the other one now if you haven't already seen it.
Both look at three different couples, and their relationships as they progress. They are both Yaoi, if you didn't know already, and are really cute! They are by the same author (Shungiku Nakamaru), so the art is basically the same. I suppose Skaiichi Hatsukoi can be considered as a bit of a spin off of Junjou Romantics, because the storylines are similar, again, with them following three different couples. Both are really good, and if you liked one, you will definitely like the other!
Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and other anime can be seen here: http://www.myanimelinks.com/full-anime-list/
They both have similar plots but Junjou Romantica is about 2 peope living together, and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is about 2 people who live next to each other and work together, but in Junjou Romantica, Usagi works as a Writer and Misaki has no job. But they are both filled with the "What going to happen next" feeling as you watch
Cause they both have mutiple couples and not just focusing on 1 couple.
Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is a spin-off of Junjou Romantica. Same mangaka; Same setting; Same art style; Both take place in the same universe, so crossovers are often.
Both are yaoi anime. Both anime focus on three different "love stories" I guess you could call it. Both give off the same kind of feeling.
They are both yaoi aniem form the sam eauthor, the art is similar, but personally i think Sekaiichi hatsukoi is much better. Both of them are the best yaoi I've ever seen.
Same producer, same author, same genres, similar characters.
They are yaoi, sexy and romantic
Art is basically the same, however characters are more developed in SH than in JR. Both were created by the same person.
Both have lots of yaoi scenes, although there's a bit more in JR.
both are of the yaoi genre, and are both done by the same producer/company/author/art style.. etc
both animes focus on 1 pairing, and then broadens the area and focuses on the couples around them in either the workplace, old friends, acquaintances, family members etc
both animes have the sex knowingly shown or just hints that it will lead to it, but in JR its pretty more graphic imo SH has toned the sex to a minimum and not shown as much leading up to it.
both animes have different feels about them, one may seem more realistic/legit than the other, and the other a whole fantasy like it will never happen.
both contain the malexmale romantic vibe and its very sweet, between the 3 couples shown in each anime, showing different love problems and history's
they are both very much enjoyable to watch if you are a yaoifangirl :P, but for person who just likes romances and has an open mind about yaoi/yuri in general, you might find both of these anime enjoyable aswell.
Anime yaoi, same author, good story, greats openings and endings.
they are both yaois written by the same person, even within the same 'world'. there is a slight over lap of characters too, but nothing that would confuse you if you didnt watch junjo.
Both series tell a story of young men's love struggles as working at a shoujo manga publishing company.
If you like yaoi, you must wath these two.
Both are shounen-ai from the same source and same art.
Similar character development and similar plot. If you enjoyed Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, you will definitely enjoy Junjou Romantica 2
Both are yaoi and both have kinda similar plot.
They have a similar feel to them, partly because of the animation, partly because the characters in one sometimes have brief encounters with characters in the other. Watching one after having watched the other is like a 3rd and 4th season bringing you other couples' love stories to fall in love with.
Aside from being yaoi, of course, both share a very similar boss x employee relationship. In Sekaiichi, they are manga editors, and in Yebisu they work with design. However, Yebisu's animation is nowhere near as good as Sekaiichi's, and sometimes movement seems like something out of a yaoi game.
The main characters in "Sekaiichi" and "Ikoku" have both fell in love with a member of the same sex and are confussed about it as they battle with there emotions but whatever they do they still can't help but love that person.
Not because of the boys love (although some people might like so see the two main characters of Bakuman as more than friends), but because both of the series take you behind the scenes of creating manga.
