Both series revolve around asocial male leads that are tricked/forced into joining a club. They also have a female lead that drives their male counterpart to perform club tasks and, surprisingly, do a good job while he is at it. They are also both high school comedies with hints of romance.

Both series have a protagonist who appears completely disinterested in everything with average intelligence and poor social skills. But in fact is highly skilled in a variety of fields and has amazing understanding for the essence of situations he finds himself in. A female protagonist who is cold and maintains distance from people achieving an unapproachable feel to herself. She has poor social skills, but above average intelligence and beauty to match her academic skills. Both anime have the same groups of students interacting with each other, the popular kids, the athletic kids, the smart kids. And of course our protagonists do not fit in  read more

'Teen Romantic Comedy Gone Wrong', or whatever typically long-winded light novel jibberish 'Yahari Ore' translates into shows all the signs of being Boku Friendship DONE RIGHT. As another user noted with their recommendation, Boku Friendship gradually turns into something of a full-on ecchi harem fest. Unlike Yahari, Boku wa started out as purely lighthearted rom-com fluff--causing later developments that expand on previously 1D comic relief characters to be awkward & its lead's turn towards a more... emo stance coming across unnaturally. Yahari one-upped this by presenting its characters as humans with relatable social difficulties from the get-go whilst still retaining sharp, witty dialogue. Instead of, say,  read more

If you like one of these male leads you should enjoy the perspective of the other. While Yuhari is really starred by the main female instead of the main male the females have a lot in common in terms of being independent, strong and confusing for the males to figure out. Both shows feature limited but well developed for 12 ep anime series supporting casts.

Yui reminds me of Minori from Toradora and I feel OreGairu has got a lot of inspiration from that series with the lead male as well (though he not only looks delinquent, he pretty much is). Similar storyline pacing and character dialogue/interactions. As a big fan of Toradora I think this one is going to be a must.

Series that are being anti-genre towards rom-com and have their witty (mostly sarcastic) dialogues as arsenal on their series. Both main characters have introvert personality that has a lot of internal monologue throughout the series which usually has a slapstick on its end although SNAFU has much pessimistic dark humor (which more entertaining to mature audiences) than Watamote.

Both shows feature male leads that are realistic (or pessimistic) narrators. While Hachiman's outlook tends to focus on the dark-side of individuals and society, Kyon in Melancholy carries only a sarcastic and cynical tone in his narration. Both leads are dropped into after-school clubs against their will, filled with interesting characters. Kyon deals with an energetic, enigmatic female lead whose antics often place its club members in trouble. Hachiman on the other hand, works with an ice-queen club leader and carries significantly less pull than Kyon. The similarities of the male leads and the environments each is placed makes these shows easy to compare, even  read more

Both are about loners and existential crises. NHK is about running from reality, Yahari is about running from people. Or vice versa :) However, NHK is about a shut-in in his 20s and Yahari is about high-school life, thus the latter is more of the mainstream.

While both series don't have the exact same premise, Kokoro Connect and Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. deal with a group of characters who get together at school while participating in various events/activities. Both series' main female protagonists have a strong and independent personality but sometimes are too brutally honest. Among other things, the interactions between the main characters of both series are what makes it a fun watch through the usage of humor, dialogues, and gags. Both series also add flavor to the romance side as there seems to be some drama between the main characters.

Similar themes on society, high school, main character is an anti social nerd that doesnt like people. Eventually opens up to some people. And not just any people. But gurls. The main difference is that Hikky is a good protagonist. So far Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun is turning out to be a less enjoyable version of Oregairu.

I heard these two compared and contrasted on a forum as something along the lines of "one is about three friends unselfishly seeking friendship and finding love; the other is about three friends selfishly seeking love and finding friendship". I'll let you decide how true that is after having watched it but I did feel these two were semi similar. The biggest similarity is the dynamic of the three main characters, a male and two females (and the two girls are sort of parallels character wise), and the unspoken feelings between the three of them.

Both "My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU" and "ORESUKI Are you the only one who loves me?" do a wonderful job in subverting the romantic comedy tropes that we typically see in anime. There's only so many times the same old story can be told and manga writers themselves are starting to become aware of this. The self-aware commentary told by the main characters of both shows, Hachiman and Joro, is quite refreshing to see. While "ORESUKI" takes a more light-hearted comedic tone, "SNAFU" often takes a more serious route when analyzing relationships. That's not to say "ORESUKI" completely waves off the emotions of its characters  read more

In both series, they take place at a local high school setting. But more importantly, there is a club where friends gather and conduct daily activities. The main male protagonist in both series are not similar but they do have a way to present their thoughts to others in a not so typical fashion. On the other hand, the main female MC in both series are independent and has a cool aura around them. Both series also has a lot of comedy, drama, catchy dialogues, and hints of a little romance between two of the main characters.

If you add up a love hating, otaku, unpopular male protagonist, a cold, intelligent, sharp tongued female protagonist, with some equally interesting female protagonists? What do you get? You get two of the best romcom animes in history. Both anime's are set in a school club environment where everyday comedy and romance ensues. Why is this? Because a couple of beautiful female characters going after your average normal male lead character can create some hilariously awkward situations. If you enjoyed one of these anime's, I will bet my underwear that you will say the same about the other.

Both have the same type of sense of humor & vibe. Both revolve around high school club activities & their daily lives. Both have the same type of main characters (Shirogane=Hachiman, Kaguya=Yuukinoshita). *Ishigami is also very alike to Hachiman. The only difference is OreGairu is more drama-driven, while Kaguya-sama is more slice-of-life-driven.

Both take place in High School and both Male protagonists are forced to join a club in which all other members are Females. However, these two are more than your typical High School Slice-of-Life Anime. YOSLCM's protagonist has a unique style of thinking, borne from his pessimism towards his peers. Conveniently, so do the females of Yakiun Domo- they are so perverted that bog standard objects can quickly become the stuff of jokes. In this case, it's hard to feel pessimistic- this show is absolutely sidesplitting! YOSLCM is far from inferior though- its serious social commentary complements Yakiun Domo, which aims to provide viewers with utterly random comedy.

I don't know why but Yahari reminded me of Gintama. First of all the protags of both anime are in a group or a club which helps people or lend a hand to them. Both protags are lazy and hikkikomori types. Both anime have very dark themes even though the comedy and comical dialogues of both the anime are above par. Both can provide us for good moral lessons.

There is a sudden degree of odd elements present that defines high school clubs. For starters, delusions come into play with fantasy thoughts playing in the heads of our main characters.

The main male protagonist gets himself involved with such clubs reluctantly after sudden circumstances.

Both shows are very similar due to their slow pace, gradual exploration of the motivation and actions of the characters, as well as the rather subtle and attentive development of the romantic line. The main difference, of course, is that Yagate Kimi ni Naru is a melancholic shoujo-ai, and Oregairu, on the contrary, is a sarcastic school comedy with a male lead.

Even if one is a Shoujo and the other is sort of like a Seinen, the two share many similarities. They both revolve around troubled teenagers and their difficulty making friends. They both tap into questioning how they should deal with their social lives. To sacrifice their own values just to make friends or not? To be honest to themselves and other people or to sacrifice that just to avoid being excluded from the group? Yahari goes a little deeper though. The male main characters are also both very pessimistic. The upbeat female main characters are also both..well..upbeat.

Romances that are not particularly romantic, but are nonetheless very entertaining. Oregairu is more comedic/parodic; Yesterday is more dramatic/straightlaced. Main characters are generally immature, broken, or borderline toxic personalities who are nonetheless immediately and completely relatable and usually sympathetic. Both shows do a good job of portraying the complication of real-life emotions and insecurities interestingly and convincingly. Both shows create emotional payoff for the viewer by having the characters straighten out their own emotions and then act on them - even when those emotional actions wind up creating conflict or don't actually solve the root problem of the situation or character.

Both embrace a somewhat antihero role in their respective universes, despite being overall very well-intentioned.

Whereas the two series aren't even close, their relativity could be on characters. First one, the main character, Okabe, kind of reminds me of Hachiman for his lone personality, half-chuuni humour(in between Steins;Gate's will and the 108 Skills of the Loner).
