Manga: Ao Haru Ride
Both are high school romances where the main protagonist is stuck in a love triangle between one guy who she loves but can't quite have and another guy who she doesn't notice until he confesses, and both love interests are so damn likable that you can't help but root for both of them. If you seek the guilty pleasure of shoujo rom-com cliches, Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Ao Haru Ride are chock-full of adorable moments that will make your heart squeal.

Manga: Tonari no Atashi
These manga share some similarities: - The typical love triangle where the heroine is in love with the "1st guy" and later meets "2nd guy" (aka underdog) which is her classmate. - The hero is dark haired and is someone close to her (neighbour/teacher) and the underdog has blonde hair and has a tendency to blush a lot around the heroine. - Both leading boys are very likeable to the point you just want them to end in a happy threesome. - The main reason why these two manga are so alike is because near the end some situations between the characters are very similar. Personally (unlike the  read more

Manga: Mairunovich
Both are considered classic shoujo with love triangles and relationships. Throughout both series, the main female protagonist learns what it's like to develop a relationship with others. Through trial and error, they learn about the essence of love. There is growth in both series as the main female protagonist develops and becomes more confident in herself and around others. I recommend both series for anyone interested for a bite of innocent shoujo.

Manga: Horimiya
Both series are known for their slice of life elements and slow pace in storytelling. Despite this, they also have a colorful cast of characters and romance that develops subtly over the course of the story. Both series also adapts relationships of different nature that are explored. And with these relationships, we can see a good amount of characterization focused on the main protagonists. Recommended for fans of lighthearted drama.

Manga: Heroine Shikkaku
Two guys after one girl (for the most part)! Both guys in both stories have contrasting personalities - good foils of each other! Also, there was a small collaboration between the two briefly. Both of these manga kind of have the same feel to them. Both stories bring the same kind of tugging at your heart to make you feel like the female lead herself and what her struggles are within the story and in her love(s?). And both have easy on the eyes art. Pretty boys and pretty girls.

Manga: Kiss yori mo Hayaku
Both heroines are in love with their teachers, but Kiss Yori mo Hayaku is a lighter read, and it starts with the student and teacher already together.

Manga: Hibi Chouchou
While both series follow different premises, they appeal to shoujo fans by their general setup. We have two main characters who are completely different meeting each other. And throughout both series' perspective stories, they connect on different levels while getting to know one another. Romance is inevitable in both series but takes some time to develop. Both series has standard shoujo art but also on occasions works itself with more elaborate style of character expressions to show realism. Recommended for fans for shoujo and school life.

Manga: Taiyou no Ie
Age gap romance manga between a high school girl/early 20's man who have similar personalities. The girls are quiet, thoughtful, and determined while the guys are kind, yet personally struggle to maintain a "proper" distance between himself the girl.

Manga: Kuragehime
Both mangas exhibit some similarities, as the two main characters are both ugly ducklings who, with a little bit of makeup, can turn into a swan. With the makeup on, she is able to attract an older guy and is able to form a relationship with him (in Hirunaka, it is ambiguous whether or not they had one in the first place). There is also another male that's is in love with her, but due to her "dating" the other guy, it is hard for that guy to get her. Along the way, something causes their relationship to crumble, due to the actions of one.  read more

Manga: Moe Kare!!
Same cheerful female lead, same almost perfect two male leads, same never ending love triangle. You can feel that after a while both of them become very unpredictable, if you are satisfied with the way one of them ends, then you will surely like the other one, too.

Manga: 7 Genme wa Himitsu
Both are about a relationship between a student and a young teacher. Both male characters are rather similar: a little weird, friendly and popular with the students and somewhat childish. In both mangas the relationship starts off with the teacher being concerned and friendly with the fermale lead and trying to help her integrating in the class and making friends. Both of the main characters fall for the teacher and confess first. Hirunaka no Ryuusei is a lot longer and more developed tough.

Teacher - student relationship in both Kinkyori Renai and Hirunaka no Ryuusei. Plus, the sensei from Hirunaka no Ryuusei is quite similar to the sensei from Kinkyori Renai! Both are adorable and heart-warming stories :)

Manga: Sensei!
Two reasonably complex portrayals of high school girls who pursue a not-entirely-unrequited relationship with a young teacher. Both are solid shoujo romances with a bit of comic relief.

Manga: Ao Haru Ride
Both of these mangas involve love triangles where it would make you swoon for all of the main guy characters, giving you heartaches because you just find it incredibly difficult to choose who is better or who should end up with the main female protagonist of the story. Both of these story lines are also very interestingly fluffy and cute and I HIGHLY recommend it for those who are into these types of story.

Manga: Sekai no Hashikko to Anzu Jam
The male protagonists from both manga, Anzu and Shishio, remind me of each other; their personalities are really similar (and it seems they both like to wear those cute glasses!). Moreover, both manga exhibit a budding romance between an adult and a high school girl.

Manga: Gestalt
There's a oneshot in Hirunaka no Ryuusei called "A Love Story in Moist Rainy Days", it can be found separately by googling it. And there's a oneshot included in Gestalt called "See Through", it can also be found separately by googling. Now that's outta the way, both of these oneshots give off the same feeling and atmosphere, their setup is similar as well, based on a rainy day. Both are cute reads, while the difference being one is shoujo and the other is BL. So don't read if one isn't your preference.
