If you have read one of these excellent yaois, you should definitely check out the other. Each manga follows the journey of a gay couple throughout the entirety of their living relationship, start to finish; a wonderful rarity in the romance genre.

Seishun Forget!
They have similar MC, an average guy who desperately chasing his crush, a well-looked girl that's so popular at school and kinda smart (at least smarter than the MC).

The difference is maybe how the romance story goes. Tonari no Kashiwagi-san is still ongoing so you may feel the development is slower than Seishun Forget that just 20 chapter long.

More or less, yeah, if you like to see how a school idol is being chased by a desperate girl, i recommend these.
PS: Tonari no Kashiwagi-san's MC is more desperate and more good-for-nothing

The artwork are well done and have a similar sinister feeling, with unique character design and strong contrast.

What I liked most about both manga were the large amount of plot twists. The stories are unpredictable yet logical, with loads of information to digest and organize, sometimes leaving questions open for deduction. Since they are of dark and realistic genre, they might not be pleasant for people who like happy endings, though.

Both are lavishly-illustrated series starring heroines imbued with supernatural abilities, whose mission is to exorcise demons hidden inside pieces of beautiful art (such as paintings, jewelry, etc.). Each story has its share of fantasy action and complicated romances. The only major differences are demographics: Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne is a magical girl/shoujo series, March Story is a seinen fantasy/horror tale.

Both stories center around the arranged marriage between a naive and charming heroine and a powerful warrior. The settings, style, and art are similar. The stories follow the relationship between the couple growing from hate to affection while dealing with issues of ruler-ship, the hero's family and personal history. Both are good, but not what you want if you're looking for a lot of kissing or a "hot" or "mature" romance.

Kuro Hakushaku wa Hoshi wo Mederu
In both these stories the hero is very prince-like, so much so that he's almost out of this world. At the same time as he seems superior, he's far from perfect. The hero falls in love with the heroine first and it takes the hard-working heroine with a more average air some time to catch up. The main difference between the two manga? Kaichou wa Maid-sama! is far superior to Kuro Hakushaku in every way.

The art styles and tone of these pieces are very similar. They are feel good stories, with charming characters. They are set in a historic fantasy. Neither story concerns itself overmuch with historical accuracy or an impressive plot - they are both warm, soft, yet dramatic fantasies about two people falling in love.

Ilegenes: Kokuyou no Kiseki
The second I saw the cover art I was reminded of Hyakujitsu. Both centre around a dark haired pretty boy in the military and his devoted older blond companion, and both deal with pretty dark themes. Though they both comment on questionable morality and internal strife (both political and personal), in Hyakujitsu it's caused by outright war while Ilegenes has a more underground rebellion/academic atmosphere. Also while Hyakujitsu is straight up yaoi, Ilegenes just has a lot of subtext. I mean A LOT. Readers who like Hyakujitsu's action (in both senses of the word) might be frustrated by Ilegenes but the character development and emotional build up is so much better in Ilegenes than in Hyakujitsu.

Dame na Watashi ni Koi Shite Kudasai
If you like the josei comedy Hotaru no Hikari - I think you should try Dame na Watashi ni Koi Shite Kudasai. These comedies have a similar flavor, both women are about the same age, in their late twenties and have never had a successful love life, each of them craves food and likes to drink! lol. The comedy in each is centered around them having to live with their boss because of money problems, and their bantering conversations where they make fun of their boss to his face is similar. They also have to rely on this boss and date another younger guy to try to become independent as if that would work! lol These have a lot of humor and less drama of some other joseis. It's a lot of fun to watch their weird antics, and the comedy between them and the boss guys makes you hope for a future romance between them.

Boku Girl
Let's see here. After reading both of these series, I feel as though they are the most similar to each other after looking through the rest of the recommendations. The only real difference I can say based off from reading the two is that Boku Girl is definitely more comedic (Kanojo ni Naru Hi: Another has some comedy to it), and Kanojo ni Naru Hi: Another has more drama to it.

Both involve a boy, whom has a girlish appearance and is often mistaken for a real girl, that suddenly becomes an actual female. Though, because both of them are very self conscious about actually becoming a female, they try to hide the fact from the rest of their classmates by acting as if they are still a boy. Only the closest friends of both of the main protagonists know their secret and they try to help our protagonists keep the secret concealed.
