Kitchen Princess and Agreement of the Glass Shoes are a similar tale of a girl meeting her prince when she was younger, and now having to find that person later in life with only a trinket to go by...and being sure as to which person it happens to be.
With Haou Airen and Heart, you deal with innocent female leads becoming the girlfriends of two very dangerous guys. Both great if you love that type of relationship. Read Heart if you are in the mood for more of a comedy, and Haou Airen for ecchi drama.
In Yamato and Koibana!, the female leads have a physical averse reaction to the male population that doesn't allow them to socialize properly. They have to cope with being around handsome men that just wont leave them alone.
The triangle relationship in Anta Nante Okotowari reminded me so much of Hana Yori Dango. Kaoru and Yui didn't get off to the right foot, and Kaoru would rather tease Yui rather than admit that he's smitten. Meanwhile, Mika appears whenever the moment is right. Just like Tsukasa, Makino, and Rui.
Both series contain that best friend type character that really hates the main lead, but sticks around because of love infatuation. Also, the main female must tame the male lead. Different plot, but very similar feel.
These series both feature a prince like male lead...who is really a dark character underneath. Then, enter the female leads who are insecure, and willing to do just about anything for the boy they love...not knowing if their feelings are returned.
In both series, the main character feels that her personal self isn't good enough for school, so spends lots of time on her appearance to make herself feel better and more popular. While at home, they are far from the persona they project at school. The male leads find out their real identity, and well...it goes from there.
While Beauty Pop and Kimi wa Girlfriend have a different plot all around, both series center around a club in school that is centered around beautifying the Maidens of the school (and the main leads don't look so bad with scissors in their hands either!)
The first thing I noticed when I was starting to read Kapon was how similar it was to Special A. It starts out about a girl who tries her hardest to be number one in the school, but is forever cast aside as number two by her rival. The strength and determination from the two female leads, and the overall attitude from the two male leads are very similar. The similarities end after that, but both are enjoyable reads.
Both series are about girls attempting to be singers to be close to the boy that they love, and experiencing hardships along the way.
Both series are about a girl who is brought on to be a body double for a rich heiress who is in danger. Through in a rich fiance and you have your typical triangle lovestory!
While the love relationship between the two main couples are different, the overall theme is the same. Stupid girl in the F class gets more than she bargained for when she happens to be stuck living in the house of the most popular guy in the A class. Both series are filled with hilarious situations that just leave you wanting more.
Aoi Spice reminds me of a specific portion of Kaikan Phrase. A famous singer and a plain girl having to deal with their secret relationship. What will their parents think of their relationship with someone so famous?
I was actually quite shocked when I realized these two were not done by the same mangaka. When I was reading Senpai no Kanojo it reminded me of the trouble Nana went through with her love for a boy who was in love with another. Though the overall story is different (with many similarities), the art and character feel are very alike.
Two series for whenever you are in the mood for a romance between a lady and her butler....
Chizumi & Fujiomie (all three volumes, listed seperately on MAL) is a series about a silly, airheaded girl who just happens to have relations with the hotest guy in school. While getting from point A to B in both of these series are different, the feel of them both are still the same.
If you enjoy series were a girl has to deal with her parents remarriage, and subsequently gaining a gorgeous step-brother who she just can't stop looking at (and neither can anyone else!), these are for you!
While the story isn't quite identical, HBW struck me as very similar to HYD. A poor female must overcome many obstacles, including the wealthy vs. poor class separation. They also both contain very strong, independent women that are determined to be their own person.
The 4th short story in Suki, Tokoro ni Yori Arashi is very similar to the plot of Lovely Complex. The tallest girl in the class must deal with someone who once was the smallest person in the class, and while it's not as developed (it is a one shot) it is still sweet to see the developing relationship despite the height obstacle.
Both series are about a younger piano student falling for the older piano teacher. Even though Sensei Yori mo Amaku is a one shot, it still has the same feel as the much longer Kiss.
So Bad and It's Love both deal with a girl living with a family of three brothers with no relations between her and them. The girls also have to deal with the love triangles that ensue.
Both of these series deal with girls supporting a high jumper after they have been in an accident and helping them jump agian. Kakedashita is a one volume story, while HanaKimi is much longer...but both are just as enjoyable.
Magical x Miracle and Ultra Manic are both about girls who can't quite grasp the concept of Magic. Both series are perfect if you like that fantasy aspect.
Good Morning Call and Itazura na Kiss are very similar in the deliverance of the story. While the situations are different, they are both about a girl that is wildly crazy about a boy, and a cool boy that barely acknowledges her. The sequel, Good Morning Kiss, is very similar to the second half of Itazura na Kiss as well.
In the Series "Fushigi Yuugi" and "From Far Away" the female leads are brought to a strange and foreign land to save them as their priestess/leader. Each have their daring knight who will defend her at all costs.
While the storylines are different for these two mangas (one is about a girl dragged into a book, the other a girl attempting to be an official) the feel of them are very simiar. You have the female lead attempting to lead her people, experiancing trials along the way. Both are surrounded by guys that only want to protect her, and an emperor that is deeply in love. The art on both is splendid as well. If you love one, you will adore the other.
With Glass Mask and Skip Beat, both of the female leads will do what it takes to make it in the entertainment world, even though their agenda and ultimate goals are different. They are also long running series. Skip Beat with over 20 volumes, and Glass Mask with over 40 - and still ongoing. If you like one, you would enjoy the other.
Both HYD and Cat Street are by Kamio Yoko. While their story and plot lines are different, the character interations are very similar, as well as overall plot development. In addition to that, her character styles are very similar. If you like the art and humor of HYD or CS, then you would like the other as well.
It feels very identical to me, not only is the art similar, but the story and occurances are as well. For example, both female leads don't know how to find their own bed after the lights have gone out ^^; Very charming if you have read one to read the other, even though it feels a bit repetative.
Both of these titles have a very similar feel, and not just in their art. Both deal with magic and wizardry, and spoiled people of royal blood. If you enjoyed either of them you would like both.
What can I say about these two mangas? Both Moe Kare and Peach girl have similar storylines. In both, the girls have a crush on a boy that they have known for a while, while the deep dark broading character secretly likes her. In addition, everything that happens in regards to these relationships are similar in their structure (I don't want to give away to much, but trust me on this one...), so if you liked how one series handled the relationships, you are bound to like the other.
They both have a very strong overbearing Male lead that won't take no for an answer. If you enjoy that type of relationship in either one of them, then you will definitely like the other.
Both are of the more adult nature, and while their plot lines aren't very similar, they have a similar feel. A popular guy targets an unsuspecting girl, and uses her to his own advantage (which are unknown to the girl for a period of time). The male character is strong and overbearing, leaving the girl helpless, they can only fall in love at that point. If you Like Kaikan Phrase, you will like Desire Climax as well.
Virtually identical. It starts off exactly the same, right down to the tasks and "trials" that need to be performed for the girl to choose which brother she is in love with (who she is being forced to marry because of family obligations). The only real differance is one is 3 chapters and the other is 18...
While reading Rockin' Heaven, it reminded me of a High-School version of Kodocha without the whole idol thing. There is a popular boy, that is idolized by all the guys in the classroom and likes to terrorize the teacher. Enter the girl who just wants a normal High School life. Definitely a page turner. If you like one, you will definitely love the other!
Dual! Is obviously a parody of Eva (among other series it seems to referance). If you have seen Eva, you can truely enjoy this series.
This anime struck me as very similar from the very begining, Saiunkoku developed its own story line, but the time period is simlar, and the characters are simlar as well. From the loveable emperor, to the distant traveler. Saiunkoku is perfect if you liked everything about Fushigi except for the overly mushy Miaka and Tamahome.
