A main male protagonist gets caught up in multitude of romance angles. Both Nisekoi and Oreshura display relationship angles between various characters. The MC also pretends to date a popular girl at school (although for different circumstances). Throughout both series, there is implication that the main girl (Chitoge from Nisekoi, Masuzu from Oreshura) might see more to their "boyfriend" than meets the eye.
Expect comedy, drama, and misunderstandings. The main male protagonist also attracts attention of other female characters that complicates his life.
In both shows, the main male and female characters are in a "false" relationship, where they pretend to be lovers. Also, other female characters are also interested in the male lead, to a point that many female compete for the affection of the one dense male lead. Misunderstandings, drama, and comedy are sure to follow.
Harems, you either hate them or love them. But these two specific ones will have to be some of the best and are very much alike. The main male characters life becomes complicated after being forced to be in a fake relationship with a popular student. They necessarily do not like each other at first but can be questioned later into the series. Rumors and awkward situations start to come into play when other girls are introduced who aim to win the heart of the MC. Fake love? Real? Love triangles? Love polygons? Who wins the MC's heart? It has the drama, twists and comedy to have you going through a cycle of emotions. read more
OreShura and Nisekoi are similar for me because first, in OreShura, Eita, the male protagonist, has two main love interests, and have two (or more) girls included in the harem. In Nisekoi, it's like that too. Eita even has a fake girlfriend, like Raku in Nisekoi. But the reasons are very different from each other. In OreShura, the story is more focused in the quarrels between the "childhood friend" and "fake girlfriend," as the title suggests. While in Nisekoi, it's more about the character developments and how they interact with the main character and develop feelings for him. Both have pretty art that is pleasing to the eyes. But Nisekoi has better art and a more interesting storyline. Both are funny, but OreShura definitely made me laugh more. If you like romantic comedies with very interesting characters, try Oreshura or Nisekoi. read more
If you liked the arranged relationship in Oreshura then you'll love Nisekoi! The story's are somewhat similar, but the story line in Nisekoi is more in depth and really pulls you in more. Both are harems in which the main character has to pick between some very different in personality girls. Words can not explain how great Nisekoi is though! If you like Oreshura then you'll love this recommendation!
-Both had their male and female protagonists put up the "fake" couple act, but romance was still manifested...
- Both had equal number of girls for the harem of the male protagonist
-Three girls in the harem were childhood friends and one was not
-Both possessed the same genre (Romantic Comedy, School Life and Harem)
- feud between two clans was present which cause the protagonists to frame up as a couple
-the female protagonist is a tsundere
- the female protagonist is mostly friends with the harem
- the protagonists put up the fake couple act in order to prevent stalkers as both are "anti-love"
- the female protagonist has split personalities for she has an identity crisis
- the female protagonist sees the harem as her real rivals
Let me just outline this out for you-
--> A harem light-hearted comedy based around the MC and 4 girls.
--> Set in School
--> A fake relationship with the beautiful foreigner due to "personal" reasons
--> The Foreigner falls for him by the end of the series
--> The MC has simple aspirations just to work hard and have a good life, is unnecessarily burdened and forced to go along with the relationship because reasons.
--> Quite relaxing, no deep plots or jump-scares
--> The character personalities match a lot. like the Tsundere, the manipulative girl, the cute girl etc. Pretty much the same type of characters really. (Tropes)
If you like Nisekoi, you'll appreciate OreShura, pretty much the same concept, burdening a hard working guy with girls and watching their antics.
Both protagonists are forced into a fake relationship with another female they don't enjoy being with. Other females are also interested in the protagonists, but keep their distances thinking its an actual relationship. Overall, they give the same kind of feel and I would definitely recommend both series to anyone interested in watching a romance anime.
Both of these revolve around a guy in a fake relationship surrounded by girls who want to date him, however in Nisekoi, the lead male character is infinitely more dense making this whole story infuriating.
-Both had their male and female protagonists put up the "fake" couple act, but romance was still manifested...
- Both had equal number of girls for the harem of the male protagonist
-Three girls in the harem were childhood friends and one was not
-Both possessed the same genre (Romantic Comedy, School Life and Harem)
Main characters get together early, and female character is a beauty.
The relationships are both "forced"
But they slowly start having feelings for each other as the anime progresses.
Harem, but not as big as the one in Oreshura, it's actually a love triangle.
- Both are comedy, romance, school, harem.
- In both the male and female protagonist pretend to be dating, in Nisekoi to avoid a war between the organizations of their families (Shuei-Gumi x Beehive), already in Oreshura he is forced by the own girl (Masuzu) to prevent that other boys stay on top of her.
- In the course of the anime is created a harem with other girls who were already or fell in love with the protagonist.But the relationship that was false is becoming real, feelings are developing.
Many romcoms share similar likenesses, so I could probably list others that match up decently like Chuunibyou, Golden Time, and even Yahari Ore no Seishun and such which others have listed. But I found these two to be similar because of the MC's dynamic/forced relationship with a main girl while the MC's crush is a different person.
Both also have typical things like "beach" episodes, romantic tension that occurs during scenes of the MC and female protagonist (though Nisekoi has a bit more romantic tension in its scenes). Both are also comedies and have tsundere leads.
The difference is that Nisekoi turns into a harem fairly quickly while Toradora mainly focuses on the same five characters and a love polygon of sorts. read more
Romantic comedies - Nisekoi and Toradora define them with a main male protagonist trying to get attention of a girl they have set their eyes on. Unfortunately, circumstances often gets in their way. On the other hand, the main male protagonist gets into an unlikely alliance/relationship with another girl who has her own interests.
There is plenty of drama, comedy, and romance offered in both series. Perhaps the most prominent feature involves relationships the main male protagonist forms with others throughout the series.
Similarities / Differences
- Lead characters have almost same personality
- Both animes have great humor
- Awesome lovable characters
- Great Endings
- Nisekoi is slightly towards more on comedy
- You have to read the Nisekoi manga to finish story
- Its Harem
Main characters have a similar start, by becoming acquainted, in Toradora they get close to help each other with their crushes, in Nisekoi they are faking a relationship without really knowing each other and in both they become more friendly and their feelings change later on in the story.
The main characters in both series have similar personalities.
-Both Romantic Comedies that have protagonists inadvertently start to fall for each other, despite not liking each other in the beginning.
-Both male and female protagonists personalities have similar personalities to their respective counterparts.
-Physical humor big in both shows.
-Blue haired protagonist
-Both like to say ''Soka'' and ''ohh'' (Ryūji says it 40 times as more)
-Both the girl are alike
More drama in Toradora and more comedy in Nisekoi
note: I personally like Nisekoi best
Both are romantic comedies with the main characters in similar positions; coming from families that may give off a sense of fear to fellow classmates. Nevertheless, Nisekoi is also full of hilarious moments, loveable and similar characters, and lots of romance drama!
Both have a male protagonist that likes her classmate for a long time, but gets involved with a different girl instead. Raku and Ryuuji has similarities with their personalities, and Chitoge and Taiga as well. Basically, both anime series are great, and both have romance and whole lots of comedy.
Both of these anime are romantic comedies. In both, there are two main love interests: Taiga and Minori in Toradora and Chitoge and Onodera in Nisekoi. Both also have a third minor interest with the same dual personality trait, Ami in Toradora and Tachibana in Nisekoi.
Same cliché school comedy/romance in which basically every female friend of the main character falls in love with him in some way, shape or form.
Takasu Ryuuji = Ichijou Raku
Aisaka Taiga = Kirisaki Chitoge
Kushieda Minori = Onodera Kosaki
Kawashima Ami = Tachibana Marika
These shows have a lot of similarities. The characters and the story are pretty much the same, also they are pretty much cliche. Toradora being more dramatic and you have way more feels, whereas Nisekoi focuses more on the comedy. If you liked one of these shows you'll probably like the other.
This show follows pretty much the same dynamic as Toradora, two main characters forced to hang out with each other but ultimately fall in love with eachother. The animation style is pretty much the same and it kinda follows the same story and dialog than in Toradora.
They are both about blue haired guys that can cook and have always crushed on certain girls but then they encounter tsunderes which they forge an alliance with. Both also have girls that have a thing for the main character, but you aren't really led to believe have a chance with him, and so are kind of just there to mix things up a bit. They also are similar in the fact that the main characters and tsunderes are shipped right from the start, but there isn't really any tension there, but then things change somewhat eventually.
As you watch the shows the similarities become blatantly apparent, and in a very good way. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed both shows, however, in my opinion, Toradora is still better. If you are looking for a show to fill the empty void Toradora left in your soul then Nisekoi should do the job.
Both shows have Tsundere Main characters. Both shows have beautiful art/animation styles. Both shows have great characters and chemistry between characters. Both shows have great dialogue.
However, Toradora has a dub and Nisekoi does not. Toradora actually finishes its story and Nisekoi does not (you have to read the manga). Also, Nisekoi slightly focuses more on Comedy than Romance it isn't a bad thing, and although it's more into Comedy than Romance it's only very slightly, there are still more than enough romance elements in both shows for your entertainment. read more
A boy divided between two girls. Lots of flashback to the childhoods of the characters and how these childhood memories shape their personalities and desires today. Similar story. Both lighthearted good comedies, at times giving more serious messages . Very likable characters. Lots of high school action.
A protagonist, with a love of childhood. Now in the present he must pretend to be in love with a girl, only by appearance. Girls are joining in their indecision, must continue with the game that he himself set, despite the difficulties.
Both animes are very good, I recommend both and especially Masamune-kun no Revenge, one for the time in this Winter season. Adenas that tanmbien both Mangas are good ^^!
Tip: Read Masamune's manga, to avoid spoillers
And that's it, my first recommendation! Thanks for reading.
Well if you're looking for some school romance comedy both has that
if you're looking for georgeus Tsundere girl Both have that
Good Opening don't forget that
Great art Check
and of course some Potential Waifu Material as well
last but not least the Story,both got an original story but what they have in common was the setting and theme
Tsundere girl: Aki --> Chitoge (fake love)
Servent girl/bodyguard: Yoshino --> Tsugumi
Love infatuated girl: Neko --> Marika
-change of dialect when mad
-transferred just cause of MC
If we look, in fact many similarities of these two anime. Among them:
- At first they hate each other. Then pretended courtship and finally a real love
-character girls had the same rough maid
-There love triangle
-romance conflict is almost the same
*Harem, Romance and Comedy genre
*Male MCs are both funny to start with
*Chitoge and Aki are both Tsunderes and rich
*Marika and Neko are very similar (mannerisms, richness, personality)
*Both animes feature a trap
There are some similarities regariding the characters
Adagaki is the tsundere character (Chitoge)
Yoshino is her servant (Tsugumi)
Neko is the "rival" that appears out of nowhere (Marika)
In addition to this, the MCs have stories related the past: Adagaki and Masamune were friends 8 years ago, but she doesn't remember him, Neko and Masamune knew each other, but he doesn't remember. Does this ring a bell? Yes, the keys and the promise from 10 years ago in Nisekoi.
Also the setting is similar (but there are no gang/yakuza wars) and the shows share the comedy tag.
The storylines for both anime are very similar.
We have the main female lead, who's a tsundere and a male lead who isn't really in love with the female lead at first (in Nisekoi, Raku and Chitoge are in a fake relationship and in MKNR Makabe is trying to seduce Aki, while not having actual feelings for her). We also have the girl that comes out of nowhere and is in love with the male lead (Marika and Neko).
Both anime are the Harem and romance type.
There are a lot of similar situations played in both anime, too (I won't tell which, though, cause ykno, spoilers).
Also, both anime end with a school play with a twist. read more
Fake relationship. I don't know why, but I love them. As they learn more about each other, we feel the slow change in their feelings that made me want them to end up together. These animes are all about our feelings for the main characters.
Both has :
- Comedy and Romance
-Unique funny characters
-Boku wa Tomodachi is more ecchi
-Nisekoi has more romance.
The school set-up is apparent in both anime, not to mention both are harem anime. The main protagonists(Kodaka for Haganai and Raku for nisekoi) have their own harem in which there are two main female leads. The rom-com in both are very entertaining and each character has their own special trait that stands-out from others. Both anmie also put a slight focus on character relationships while weaving in the casual fan-service.
main guy has a childhood friend he doesn't remember who (kinda)
main guy is getting a forced marriage from parents to another girl
main guy kinda has troubles having friends (Nisekoi not much)
blonde haired and black haired girls for main characters
Sakunai (Haganai) is more bold..er, I mean more revealing (rated R+)
Other story threads
-The main characters of both anime had a childhood friend 10 years earlier, but they were separated and never saw eachother again. No matter how hard they try, the main character can't remember the childhood friend's name, amongst other things.
-Both anime are Harem/Romance/Comedy, but Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai has more ecchi and fanservice, while Nisekoi focuses more on romance.
-Both anime deal with social issues such as making friends, and the slow uncovering of the characters' past is a central plotpoint.
Nisekoi is basically Haganai but:
- MC imouto
- loli route for MC
- Having a school club
= Airhead Harem MC
= A tomboy character likes MC
= Rich Blonde girl vs Normal Black Haired girl
+ Key and Necklace
+ Yakuza, Gangmembers, & Special Force
+ MC wingman with a loli GF
Haganai is a series near and dear to me for no particular reason, and Nisekoi is the closest to it I could think of. They both go along with the harem/harem-esque genre, but in Haganai the Generic Dense Harem Anime Protagonist™ isn't actually a Generic Dense Harem Anime Protagonist™. Talk about originality, amirite
It actually leans towards slice of life too, and has a healthy portion of lolis. 10/10
They both have that same trippy style (Bakemonogatari's is more pronounced) like scene cutting, slow motion shots, soft color backgrounds, off colored objects (like blue desks or green background characters)...
Basically I watched Nisekoi for maybe 5 minutes before I asked, "Was this made by the same guy that made Bakemonogatari?"
Both shows from SHAFT and with the same art style, which I personally completely love. Araragi and Raku have quite similar personalities, always helping everyone, which gets them quite a noticeable harem. These shows also have really interesting and enjoyable characters.
+ Shaft animation in a high school setting anime
+ One guy surrounded by several girls, some who like him and some who are annoyed by him
+ A little action, but there's more of a focus on the character interractions and the unique animation style that goes with it all
- Bakemonogatari is much more focused on psychological stuff and talking, plus it has a strong supernatural element where Nisekoi involves gangs
It's made by the same company I believe. The head tilt, the unique art style, and completeness constantly remind one series of the other. However, whereas nisekoi is a rom-com focusing heavily on the love life of the protagonist, the monogatari series is more of a fantasy that often shifts focus points between the main character and the characters around him.
Both have similar levels of comedy, although Bakemonogatari is focused more on mystery, while Nisekoi is more romance-based. Both use similar art styles, with similar unorthodox camera angles and presentation. And in both anime, the MC is the cynical narrator.
If you like Shaft's animation and as well the same atmosphere like Nisekoi. Check it and try Bakemonogatari or even watch all the sequels and prequels of this series, since both were made in the company. Some Camera Angles are the same Bakemonogatari and the slow motion shots. The only difference is Bakemonogatari, the anime is 90% dialogue and 10% action, because Bake is centered in character's interaction. Nisekoi is just like the normal anime with little convo and more in action, so if you feel like having the same atmosphere like Nisekoi give a shot for Bakemonogatari.Don't worry the art is similar on both animes. read more
Well they are both made by Shaft so the animation is similar but that's not all!
In both shows you have your sterotypical tsundere, a cute and shy girl who's afraid to admit her feelings, a crazy lovesick yandere, and a wing girl who backs up the tsundere.
Bakemonogatari is a more psychological, supernatural theme while Nisekoi is mostly comedy and romance but both shows shine in their own ways.
In both, MC likes a certain girl and that girl likes him back (for similar reasons too), but is (sort of) forced into a relationship with another girl.... Circumstances are pretty similar in both.
The difference here is that Nisekoi is not ecchi nor supernatural.
-MC's that are very reserved with women
-Both have the same "base" story --new outgoing girl shows up in MC's life and becomes something like a pseudo-girlfriend
-Both Stories use the same tactic to advance the "PLOT"
-Both MC's are obsessed with a plain reserved girl
Difference: To LOVE-Ru is ecchi and Nisekoi isn't ....pretty much the same story otherwise
In these two anime, multiple girls fall in love with the same guy, and because of similar circumstances, the lead guy starts a relationship with a girl other than his crush from high school. Also, these are love comedies, where the main guy gets into funny situations with the female characters.
They are literally the EXACT same anime, except To LOVE-Ru is ecchi, and is just short of turning into hentai the longer it goes on.. Really the only difference is Chitoge is tsundere while Lala is pretty straight forward with her feelings.
Due to unwanted circumstances, the main guy is in an official relationship with the main girl even though he and another girl like each other but never manage to confess.
And since it's a harem, throw in tons of other girls with varying personalities and have everyone mess around each episode.
Both about a guy who is forced into a relationship through a series of crazt events, and both are really funny with lots of comedy and cute girls as lead characters. But in Nisekoi this relationship is "fake".
Raku=Rito ? sure, haremness
Chitoge=Lala ? the diffrence just in the personality
kosaki=haruna ? they are same all the way
raku-kosaki/rito-haruna are falling in love with each other and chitoge/lala came and broke it
but, to love ru is too dangerous for -17 :v
Both series have the same plot where our MC's love a girl from their own class but are not able to say it until they get engaged to another girl that comes out of nowhere because of certain drastic situation. Both then have some harem comedy elements that are pretty fun to watch. The only difference is that Nisekoi is a real life school romance series whereas To-Love Ru involves many alien girls...their strange powers....but don't worry....it is not action....it is a pure harem. BTW the number of girls in To-Love RU nearly doubles the amount in Nisekoi.
This anime has many similar features or cliches
-harem style love story.
-some what love triangle (ex onodera>raku<chotoge,haruna>rito<lala)
-lots of fan service ;^)
-has comedy too
-both male protagonist have the most problem of them all
Yeah apart from the alien thing this two series are quite similar. I highly recommend it to the people who watched nisekoi or vice versa.
Both high school rom-coms, though Nisekoi definitely takes a more traditional approach; whereas Nisekoi sees active romantic development, Oregairu is more about the development of friendships, with the male MC "more attracted to" the "trap" than any of the girls. Still, they take cliche'd situations (cultural festival, school field trip, etc.) and character tropes, and make them interesting.
-Starts off with a guy and a girl who appear to clash at first
-In Nisekoi you have Raku being forced into a (fake) relationship with Chitoge whereas in My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU you have Hachiman being forced into the same club as Yukino (the only member of the club)
-The at first clashing relationship develops as time progresses
-They give off a similar overall feeling while watching the show
-One Guy, Multiple Girls, however this is less prevalent in My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU than it is in Nisekoi. Nisekoi is considered a Harem due to the amount of girls in the show that are around Raku, however My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU does not receive this label as there are only two main girls around Hachiman read more
Both Seto no Hanayome and Nisekoi involve the main character having affiliation with the Yakuza and being forced into a relationship. There are other potential lovers which are thrown into the mix and over time the main character discovers romantic merits about them.
They are both great comedies with the main character displaying desirable qualities such as loyalty and chivalry. If you're looking for another romantic comedy with the same vibe, I'd definitely recommend checking this out!
They are very similar in a lot of aspects. A high-school pair engaged against their will that develops feeling to each other as the time goes and with constant additions (transfers) of new girls who fall in love with protagonist. And a child-hood friend with ties in the police... And a monkey friend. And Yakuza with Mafia. I would go as far as calling it a clone.
Seto is more oriented on comedy, while Nisekoi's center is romance, but in an essence - they are the one and the same.
Main character is forced to date/marry a Yakuza boss's daughter to make peace.
Both are school rom-com
Harem between the main character, a childhood friend, a police chief's daughter, a Yakuza boss's daughter, "transfer student" etc...
Nisekoi and Seto no Hanayome [My Bride is a Mermaid] are pretty similar: forcing their main male protagonists to date/marry a girl whom they just recently met, being involved in the mafia/yakuza, and having your stereotypical harem.
Both animes are very entertaining and hilarious. Whichever one you watch, I recommend that you watch the other.
- boy must marry/be in a relationship with a girl with blonde hair
- but he loves someone else and the girl he loves, loves him too, but they have both problems, to confess their feelings to each other (they do it, but it's complicated for both)
- both girls become pretty good friends (blonde hair girl doesn't have friends)
- school setting is similar
- names are also pretty similar (Nisekoi = False Love, Koi to Uso = Love and Lies)
Both MC has to marry one specific girl which in Koi to uso is chosen by the government and in Nisekoi , chosen by the MC
Both has drama , except that Nisekoi is more like a romantic comedy.
Both gives you cute chills <3
Both ends or start with Koi
(Nisekoi to uso - False love and lies)
The storyline in these series have some major similarity, Nisekoi (Raku x Chitoge x Onodera) and Koi to Uso (Yukari x Ririna x Misaki) , yep the triangle-concentrated love.
Both story told about how a male stuck between the love one vs the fate one, the love-story that happen lot in the school. Highly recommended because not only will see the similarity in these anime, but you will fill the other sensation which not happen in the both story.
In both anime the MC is forced into a relationship, while he has a crush on another girl. The girl he is forced to marry/be in a relationship, after a while, doesn't seem to be that bad as he originally thought.The rest is False Love vs True Love.
P.S. Weirdly enough, the girls they have a crush on share the same voice actor.
Is the same basic storyline, a childhood promise, love involved, girls confusion and a lots of comedy.
The characters are similar, but Love hina is harem style (many, many girls) and nisekoi is school life style.
- childhood romantic promise
- forgets/has blurred memory of the said promise upon growing up
- protagonist searching for the promised girl
- girls around the main character
- somehow reflects the personalities of the characters in this anime
- also a good romcom.
In Love Hina, the other girls don't actually show their affection to the main guy (only the main girl is obvious). He's just serve as an "inspiration" OR a kind of "brother figure" for them.
In Nisekoi, the girls show their affection to the main guy to the point that every girl likes him.
We've got your harem, your tsundere, your frail girl, your shy girl, your girl that can kick your ass in less than a minute, your misunderstandings, your cliches, your nosebleeds, your main male character who tends to get the crap beat out of him in basically every episode by that gosh darn tsundere chick, and the list just goes on and on.
There are quite a few differences between the two series, but there is also a lot they have in common. If you like one, you'll probably like the other.
Stories wrapped up in love polygons and a revisit of the past. Golden Time and Nisekoi formulate this trope into a story involving a main character in complex relationships. The main male protagonist differ in personalities but is kind at heart. On the other hand, the main female protagonist from both series has complex personalities and tends to be aggressive on certain circumstances.
Both series revolves around relationships although Nisekoi has more action while Golden Time has more realism with its more mature setting. Throughout both series, an important content involves the past of the main characters that directly influences on present events.
It's the same concept as Golden Time. The bangy attractive goof of a main character ending up having to choose between two girls that fell for him! Which would they(he) choose ?The girl he's liked all along or the girl that popped out of no where?
Similar artistic style (cartoonish, textures, stylish effects, simple vectors, bright colors), similar comedy and both are about an average guy with a bunch of friends that have crazy antics with him at school or other various places. Both are harem-style and have lots of girls and fanservice.
-Both involve somewhat of a love triangle
-Similar animation (Off colored backgrounds, weird coloring of characters, strange effects ect)
-Both involve a shy girl and a tsundere
-Both are comedy-romance shows with a little bit of slice of life.
First of all, the comedy here will make your day great. The nosebleeds, the awkward faces they make, i mean what could be better if they make faces when they get humiliated. Also loved the romance here and love revelations. You won't know who the MC is really paired to whom (except he has a current crush but still made a promise in the past somewhat that). The romance really makes a great impact of the anime. Some good suspense although situations throughout the show are pretty much predictable. Better watch this when you're in a bad karma
+Both are high school romantic comedy
+Very similar over-the-top humour with incredibly ridiculous over reaction/facial expressions
+The girls are VERY similar in both animes. Having a foreign tsundere girl and a shy girl
-Nisekoi is harem, whereas Baka Test is more of a love triangle
-Nisekoi focuses more on the bonds between the MC and the girls, whereas Baka Test is a slapstick comedy with some romantic aspect.
Anime dealing with arranged marriage. In Nisekoi, the main characters must be a couple in order to stop rivalry between mafia groups. In Mikakunin de Shinkoukei aka Engaged to the Unidentified, our main couple are engaged due to an incident that happen in the past. Both anime deals with school, life, romance, comedy, and drama. Add love triangle to spice things up. Both anime airing this year.
The concept of arranged marriages sets up the contents for both Nisekoi and Mikakunin de Shinkoukei. Therefore, expect misunderstandings, drama, but also connections on a more deeper level as well.
The main male characters contrasts greatly in personality. However, they do care about their friends and families deep down. Mikakunin de Shinkoukei has an additional element of supernatural theme while Nisekoi presents every episode in an unique fashion courtesy of Shaft.
Two main characters in both series also suffers from an amnesia from the past that becomes a plot device throughout their perspective stories.
The story follows two main characters, mostly a boy and a girl, who got off a strange start by an arranged couples. Though they have child memories where they tried to remember several parts, but don't remember most of it. As they go through this "arranged couple" they tried to put the pieces together for their childhood memories and see if that he/she is the right person.
Engaged to the Unidentified, follows a girl who have memories during the accident, and was arranged by a "Soon-to-be fiance." Nisekoi follows a boy who have memories of a promise girl, and was arranged by a girl who was forced to pair up to stop family fueds. read more
- Both are slice of life rom-com genre anime
- Both have an MC who can't remember a promise of love they made in the past
- Both female MC's where saved by the male MC when they where little
- Both are set in A high school setting
Both of romantic comedy somewhat similar-themed but each work with its unique way, if you like romantic comedies that make you die laughing but also that you hold the story and who leave one wanting more, these works are for you.
-Both about a boy trying to find out who his "forgotten" companion is
-The atmosphere is similar in both (Light-hearted, and very short scenes of plot progression
-Both are harems
-Both take place in a school setting, both Nisekoi and NAKAIMO are realistic Slice of Lifes
-Nisekoi focuses a bit more on comedy, NAKAIMO has other things such as fanservice and ecchi
In a harem comedy anime, one major problem writers have to overcome is how to maintain the "harem" situation, since in normal circumstances any such arrangement would quickly collapse.
Most harem comedies do this by making the protagonist or the girls (or both) defective in some way (stupid, socially inept, etc.).
One of the reasons I like Nisekoi is that (while some of this is still present), there are more complex plot devices at work which which sustain the harem (the question of the childhood promise and the need to fake a relationship to avoid a turf war).
Kono Naka does this even better; the protagonist is even more sane but is dealing with the twin pressures of having to marry before graduating highschool and knowing that his biological sister (whose identity he doesn't know) is a student at the school and actively trying to seduce him. The circumstances and decisions of the protagonist are things a reasonable person might do, and this makes for a much more interesting story than "the protagonist is too emotionally immature to choose a single girl". read more
Somehow, as if magically or by a chance of genre, the MC finds himself surrounded by girls of all different kinds. While the MC may be generally unaware of their romantic status, both animes are based around the relationships they have with each other, and the time-passing comedy. Nisekoi is a little bit more on the romantic, dramatic side, while Jitsu wa Watashi wa is more on the crazy, comedic side. Regardless, both animes are very enjoyable simply because of how each of the characters and the way they interact with each other are so enjoyable. If you liked one simply because you liked the crazy comedy that went on, you'll enjoy the other. Don't come expecting good plots from either however, it's a shounen romance in the end.

Both are pretty funny Rom-Coms with a similar style of comedy and cute girls in a high school setting, also in voth animes they have to keep a secret that is very importan for the plot.
Both have really good OP songs and soundtrack.
The main difference are that the girls in Jitsu wa Watashi wa are monster.
Comedy, harem romance and slightly ecchi series that feature a oblivious yet caring male protagonist, surrounded by various beautiful girls who try to get involved romantically with him. Both series are cliched and full of tropes, yet they are somewhat aware of their own cliched nature and makes fun of it to create great comedy. A source of shipping wars in both series.
Comedy, romance and harem.
Both Anime share the same genre, except SaeKano has more Ecchi scenes.
Both Protagonist have 4 girls who are dere for him.
SaeKano is about a passionate otaku, where Nisekoi is a highschool romcom.
Both really enjoyable, funny, and even sometimes dramatic masterpieces, which can be rewatched many times.
The art is very well done in both shows. Harem is present, although Aishen is presented in a more straightforward manner. Meaning that the main heroine(s) expresses thier feelings more sincerely and doesnt beat around the bushes. I enjoy Aishen and I know you will too. :)
Both are harem and have amazing art styles.
Xueli and Marika are quite similar in personality-wise as they both are infatuated(to the point of force) with the MC.
Likewise Onodera and Zitong also have some similarities.
Chitoge and Tang Xuan are both tsundere as well.
Though one is Japanese while the other is Chinese.
They're both really good anime.
The girls in both series have very similar personalities.
A similar love triangle occurs, but it is a bit more pronounced in Nisekoi, and the love triangle only becomes apparent in the sequel of Chuunibyou.
Both anime have love triangles and they're both have situations with a lot of misunderstandings. They both tease you with the outcome of the romance. The only difference is that Nisekoi is more of a harem.
Both have love triangles and most of relationship situation starts with misunderstanding. Both series also featuring love rivalry between blonde and typical Japanese style girl.
The difference is that Nisekoi is more of a harem and School Rumble has more variety of character..
-Both Harem anime
-Both funny and good
-Maburaho is more oldern style art as for Nisakoi is more modern art
-Both main character has a girl who likes them for who they are and promised each other they will marry each other when they grow up
-Both main character don't exactly remember who (Nisakoi) and (Maburaho) don't remember it at all
-Both girls who likes the main character in both anime are very popular and hot
-Both main characters get surrounded by girls that likes them and is harem anime
Simple love story that gets complicated by the second. Each begins with a childhood promise of love, and the main character has an unexpected "girlfriend" from the start. To make matters worse, more girls keep falling in love with him! Who will he end up with?
-Both are Romance Comedies
-Reika is a lot like Chitoge from Nisekoi, I kept thinking of the situation as the same and they both have servants that act in ridiculous ways for them
-Mayu is comparable to Onodera from Nisekoi, though I'd say they're a bit different.
conditional love + harem + blonde tsunderes, basically both anime in the nutshell. Both have mediocre plot-lines with some running gags. Nisekoi is just a Plain Rom-com, while B gata h kei borderlines on being a hentai. So if you could sit through Nisekoi, B gata H kei would be nice time-pass!.
As you watch Ano Natsu de Matteru, you will notice that the story's characters have large similarities to Nisekoi's. While the anime starts slowly, it contains quite a bit of romance and presents the same idea of how one of the characters force themselves to hold back from who they love.
- guy MC with similar hair that is good at cooking
- easily flustered, innocent, cute girl
- blond, skilled, attractive, tsun girl
- curvy tsundere with pixie haircut
- and of course random ecchi fanservice
- surprisingly very fun to watch
- Both Kae/Raku are around a lot of hot guys/girls
- There's one who's always liked the MC (Mutsumi/Kosaki)
- There's one who's blonde and fights with the MC a lot (Nanashima/Chitoge)
- There's one who's very flirty (Igarashi/Marika)
- There's one who likes the MC even though the MC is older (Shinomiya/Haru)
- There's one who looks like a guy but is actually a girl (Nishina/Tsugumi)
- Both are romantic comedies that take place in high school
- Both are kinda hard to tell who will end up with the MC
Nisekoi is an anime that has the same kind of romantic comedy feel to it, but the main characters are completely different. I'm recommending this for those who like the whole normal people, rom-com, school setting. If you like the whole part where the main character has the *special trait* in Tanaka-kun, this would be his listlessness, then Nisekoi is not for you.
Nisekoi is a harem, romance, comedy, school, has 2 seasons, possibly 3, and OVA's. Main male character, but it's unlike most harems. It has lots of unique characters, the plot is great for each character's background, and not many are that annoying, imo. So yeah. If you like the whole rom-com-school setting, Nisekoi is for you!
If you're on Nisekoi's page, and see this, feel free to read the next section:
Tanaka-kun is about Tanaka, a boy who is lethargic, and according to him, "sleep takes up about 80% of my human needs." So yeah. He dozes off in mid-conversation, and his friend, Ohta, ends up carrying him around everywhere. Tanka-kun is a rom-com, of sorts. It's not a complete rom-com, because he is unaware of the feelings, and potential feelings around him. Well, that, and he doesn't care. Tanaka doesn't treat the girls like trash, and the story has it's remarkable and funny moments. So yeah, chances are if you like Nisekoi, you'll like this! read more
Romance, Comedy ,Relationships, Love triangles.Both anime potray a relationship of character and the one they love and how much effort they make to make them theirs. Niskoi having a harem of girls trying to fit the key to the lock and honey x clover is more about finding oneself in admist of falling in love and moving on in life
If you're fan of Karen's antics like a *few* people I've seen, Nisekoi has her VA, Nao Touyama, perform a similar role in an almost identical voice, as well as a few new takes throughout the series.
Cutesy Karen, Tsundere Karen, Sassy Karen, English-speaking Karen - all showcased in Chitoge, who is a main character, meaning more opportunities for her to shine. While not having exactly the same kind of humour as Kiniro Mosaic overall, Nisekoi's humour definitely has its moments. There are also little chibi segments of her in Nisekoi that wouldn't look too out of place in Kiniro Mosaic. Sometimes it feels like the Nisekoi producers uncannily knew exactly what they were doing with her character based on her previous performances...
Conversely, Chitoge fans could check out how she possibly got that role. She's hilarious in Kiniro Mosaic.
Additionally, some tsundere bits from Nisekoi aren't too different from Ayaya's antics.  read more
Both are essentially love comedies. In Oregairu, you have a love triangle; in Nisekoi, you have many female characters liking the male lead. The only major difference between these two series is the character development, which Oregairu is much better at.
These two anime give you the same feeling of the anime not going anywhere with the lack of story progression and character development.
Also, they have similar quality and style of animation.
You will feel like they could have put in a real story in these anime but they didn't. And you only find out on the last episode while your waiting for the story to develop.
If you love the relationship between Chitoge and Raku, and how they have their little stubborn but loving moments together, then watch Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.
They're both really loving stories that you'll enjoy. (Keep in mind that Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is full of feels and may break your heart)
I recommend this because they are both forced into a relationship by their parents/guardians decision. They have a setting to it so that its not just the boring romance. it's the funny, action and serious type which I like. It reminds me of nisekoi because of all of that. The only difference is that nisekoi is about gang members and princess lover is a more of a very rich and fancy life style to it.
Nisekoi actually features a character (rather major, but not the main.) who everyone mistakens for a boy due to her appearance. Coincidentally both are voiced by Mikako Komatsu herself. Both are high-trained in combat.
I make this recommendation because they are romantic comedies.
Both have a secret that they must keep.
There are a lot of changes of animation in both.
Finally features traps. ;) Haha
Well if you want something like this there it is.
-Both anime has characters very alike.
-Main character meets abusive girl who develops a close relationship
-Main character has a shy childhood friend
-Both extremely funny that will keep you laughing for hours
-Both gives off the similar feel
Both are rom-coms where a boy and a girl are forced to be a couple by their fathers. Though the boy and the girl hate each other at first, after a while, hate starts to change into love. Both series have also other girls who have crush on the boy. Also, while Ranma ½ is ecchi, Nisekoi isn't.
BOTH are based on misunderstandings.. I mean 1 or 2 misunderstandings wouldn't be worth mentioning on a romance anime, BUT on every. single. episode. then I guess it's a pretty big deal... and I bet you think that I don't like misunderstandings.. well YOU'RE WRONG, I LOVE THEM.. actually I love them only after they're cleared.. so I guess that would make it a love/hate relationship.
Anyhow, if you like Kimi ni Todoke, you'll surely like TORADORA! ;)
The most similar feature between the two animes is their visuals. Both share the same director (along with Bakemonogatari), so the cuts, frames and scenes are trated with the same flawless, colorful, detailed characters and impressive backgrounds. That is a priviledge as a viewer, and a pleasure if you have read the manga.
The storylines are not exactly related, but both are about a main male character (Ko and Raku) who, because of things that are out of his hands (health condition in Ko´s case, a family deal in Raku`s case), end up romantically attached to a woman they did not know.
Also, both are comedies that approach the romantic sides of the characters on a very smooth way. They share unforgettable characters, even though Nisekoi`s might be a little bit cliché.
You will enjoy both. read more
Funny shows about forced relationships, in Sumomomo Momomo the main girl often tries to seduce the main boy, while Nisekoi plays on characters' embarrassment. Nisekoi is more traditional school comedy, while Sumomomo Momomo gives action and fights. There are exactly three girls which love the boy.
It is almost the same thing. Romance comedy with a boy and two girls. He prefer the one with short brown hair, but he gets engaged with the blonde one with long hair. Suddenly appears a third girl, who claim his hand. The three girls love him, and he is undecided, but has a preference for the short haired one.
All main characters have selective memory, they don't remember when they were children, the one who remember is just the third girl.
The two shows have the same begin, trend, style and ending. There are very few differences: HenNeko has a supernatural component and is a bit more mature and lolicon, while Nisekoi is less mature and not lolicon. read more
Anime dealing with love triangle between his childhood friend and a transfer student. In Nisekoi, Raku Ichijo must search for the one who holds the key to his heart. Problems occurs when a civil war between mafia groups ensues. The next hair to both families must be a couple to stop this war. But their relationship is fake. This complicates MC childhood friend who has feelings for him too. In Nourin: former idol singer transfers to a farm school and lives a normal school life. Falls in love with the MC which makes childhood friend jealous. Both series has a megane best friend. A romantic comedy with a touch of drama. Anime airing this year.  read more
The protagonists of both anime have something in their pasts that they can't seem to remember, and they met a certain amount of girls in the past who they end up reuniting with in the future. Both anime also have animation that is pleasing to the eyes.
The Characters are very similar to one another. Kouichi has a similar appearance as Raku. They both have a crush on a shy and reserved girl; Onodera in Nisekoi and Yuumi in Kimikiss. Both female leads are smart and lively. They both realize their love for the male lead. Both of the shows have a love-triangle. Both are also set in school.
The only difference is that Nisekoi has elements of mystery in it and kimikiss has two main leads.
A romantic comedy and a mecha show? How could these possibly be similar? While their plots have no concrete similarities, both series reach for the same goal. Gurren Lagann wants to exaggerate and emphasize the nonsense and cliches of the mecha genre, while Nisekoi does the same but for the high-school harem comedy. Neither have deep plots or great characters, but both can be very enjoyable just because of the extreme over-the-topness and passion behind both series. Somehow, both series are smart in their stupidity, and are even more enjoyable if the viewer can appreciate that.
Both are romantic comedies that have plenty of comedy scenes. Both have a bunch of likeable supporting characters that get plenty of screen time and development. Both male MCs are oblivious to a bunch of things to an extent (Raku less so than Usa).
> Both storylines have a boy and one girl that meeting each one in the past,but no one didn't remenber that event ( Raku and Chitoge in Nisekoi / Ash and Silvia in Seikoku no Dragonar ) ;
> The only diferences are about that SnD,the MCs living in a fantasy world,while in Nisekoi the characters living in a normal world; The other diference is about the number of girls that have some past together with the boy ( in Nisekoi are many girls and in SnD is only one);
both involve a mc who gets troubled by the girls that surround him
while there trying to help they always seem to lead him to despair(in a comedic way XD) Some of the character have very similar personalty
Nagastuki reminds me of Tsugumi (way to much personality and they way they dress XD)
nisekoi is a little more on the I want be with you/care for you kind of romance while Happy lesson is I'm going to look after you/care for you kind of Romance ( This is a season 2 compared to a season 1 I didn't realize how much these show were a like till i saw the season 2 of happy lesson)
both are open ended Rom/coms  read more
Both have a very well done comedy style which focuses on over-exaggeration. Both have a largely female cast both of which are super cute and enjoyable to watch. Nisekoi has a romantic plot where Nichijou has none.
These two are similar because in the beginnings, it's suppose to be a fake relationship. Then they get stuck in love triangles from each side and later on they develop feelings for each other <3 <3 .
Talk about a love story? C:
In both anime we have a nice guy protagonist in a school environment where he basically hangs out with girls. Each of the characters are very likable and have their own agenda for liking the MC. However, Mashiro-iro delves in deeper to the exploration of love and its consequences. In Nisekoi, most of the scenes are dedicated to comedy/fanservice.
