A boy discovers that the idol of the school is a secret otaku. He befriends her and helps her become more accepting of her otaku ways. The difference is the male MC in "Tonari" is more of an otaku, while the male in "Nogizaka" (so far) is limited to casual manga reading. Also, the female lead in "Nogizaka" is wealthy (complete with maids), while the female lead in "Tonari" seems to be of average income.
Both romantic comedy series involves an ordinary boy discovering a secret involving a girl who is considered a school idol. From there, they begin to bond and eventually forms a special relationship.
Throughout the series, there is a sense of connection between the two that started out as friends but later turns into something more.
There's also other characters present in both series that interacts with the duo presented in both dramatic and comedic ways.
Both series have a slice of life feeling involving both characters' development with others as well as their own relationship in a school life setting.
These mangas both have a main characters that is in love in the 2D world, but through some sort of complication they begin to interact with 3D women.
In the manga World God Only Knows it's because of a demon contract that Keima is forced to make women fall in love with him, but in Tonari no Kashiwagi-san one of the main characters, Yuuto, learns of a secret that Kotone had been keeping to herself, thus beginning the rocky relationship between the two.
I highly recommend the World God Only Knows to anyone who's reading Tonari no Kashiwagi-san since they both give off the same feeling and give the readers something to look forward too.
