well, both series are similar to each other. both of them follow the life of a poor but smart girl that enters a host club/talent agency more or less because if money and both girls have to dress as a guy in order to work there. also, their appearances when they dress as a boy are somewhat similar.
they reminded me of each other and i really think that if you liked one, you'll like the other one too. well, the protagonists resemble very much, in both looks and character. Also, in both stories, there are characters (akane in kitchen princess and riko in love love shock) that hate the protagonist at first, because they guy they like actually like the main character, but become friends eventually, after hearing that they like someone else. Oh, and both protagonist have liked someone for a very long time (even though najika from kitchen princess has a change of heart, she has always liked her `flan prince`).
the plot and characters are different, but in both stories, the main characters are very very good at something (kiri in beauty pop and najika in kitchen princess). also, in both stories, there are characters related to the protagonist, that are very lazy yet are very good in something (in beauty pop is kiri's father and kitchen princess is the chef of the cafe najika works at). also, both protaginst want to become pros at what they are good at, and they do achieve their dreams, in the end of the series.
