both series are about comedy, and both male leads tetsuro tanaka and ryo mizuhara, and both female leads shizuka masuda and yayoi asuka are attracted to the male leads, though for ryo, it took a long while to accept shizuka while tetsuro immediately accepted yayoi asuka

Both final Approach and Seto no Hanayome are very similar, the main characters are forced into arrange marriage,which both girls are perfectly content with and seek the guys affection. They are both funny and dramatic also have a satisfactoire ending to them, they are really enjoyable to watch and have strong and honest personalities!. like the both guys are stuborn and wants a troubled free life and both girls are even suborner and are kind hearted yet dramaticly determin. So if you enjoy these kinds of animes like I do <3 seto no Hanayome (my bride is a Mermaid) then you wont be disappointed! :)

I would recommend this anime final approach if you liked shuffle because the main male characters are very similar in the following ways. 1. Hard headed 2. None Understanding 3. Hurts others around by accident or on purposes 4. Finally, they still gets the girls even though they are stupid and very inconsiderate of others feelings

Girl likes guy, but guy is either too oblivious or too uncaring.

these shows gave me the same feeling as i watched them and had many similarities from they characters, the action, and similar comedy aspects too about the only difference is the squid but they are both excellent animes.

Both are romantic comedies , each episode having about 5-6 minutes. The main male character is always under pressure one way or the other because several female characters are in love with him. Both series have a similar type of ecchi , very showy but innocent in the same time.

Fresh comedy and simply plot are both simmilar, also you can see how an anonymous girl make friends using a -sometimes- surrealistic personality.

in both series, the male leads juuna tono and ryoh mizuhara lives with their respective younger sisters senna and shizuka as their respective parents died before the series began
