Both are about two childhood loves that try to find their way together in life. Well Love Hina is more funny while Ai yori Aoshi is more serious. Still if you like one you also like the other. I'm sure about that.
I may get killed after saying this, but I think Ai Yori Yoshi is actually better/more interesting than Love Hina. That being said, if you like Love Hina, if you are looking for a similar show, or if you like the added aspect of a "sudden girlfriend appearance", Ai Yori Aoshi is the best choice for you.
Both are Harems, both can be appropiately romantic when they want to be, both have a full ensemble of well-developed and well-liked characters.
Love Hina is more comedic, while Ai Yori Aoshi is more majestic in nature.
Also, the main heroines are the primary love interest as well.
Both anime series are romantic-comedies with a harem feel to both. Both male protagonists are at the university age, who through unique circumstances, ends up living with numerous pretty girls (or a harem of girls). A harem at the start of both series, it's made pretty clear early on to the viewer, who the fated matched couple in the end will likely be.
These are both quite similar. The difference: Love Hina is move comedy-driven while Ai Yori Aoshi is story-driven. Love Hina has more ecchi moments than Ai Yori Aoshi, but they are both series you should watch light-heartedly.
In both two childhood friends want to meet again for love. The male character who is often misunderstood is in the house with females around. Lots of ecchi moments in both. Same slap stick comedy routines.
One guy in a dorm with a bunch of girls. There's a hidden past between the lead characters that only draws them closer as they remember it. The side characters even seem the same. If you liked one, you'll defenitly like the other :)
Love Hina, while far more 'cartoonie than Ai Yori uses similar humor, is from the same studio, and has a longer romance arc giving it more cute moments. It is well worth watching every episode of Love Hina, as what you are given is cute romance and a strong female role who demonstrates the ability to encourage. The romance is cute in the way that the main characters parallel and contrast one another.
Both animes share the same premise, a boy, not especially popular, suddenly finds himself surrounded by girls interested in him. A lot of the visual gags usually arising from misunderstandings, which result in the boy getting beaten up and called a pervert, are also present in both series.
They are both love comedys and they are funny altogether. Love Hina is a bit more romance but Seto no Hanayome will rock your socks becauses is so funny. I enjoyed both series very well. I wouldn't mind seeing Seto No Hanayome twice!
-HAREM (ne male protagonist, many female characters surrounding him)
-Has a similar animation and drawing quality, although Love Hina has a somewhat older semblance.
-Plot has the same mild, sweet atmosphere in it.
-If you like the ending of Love Hina, you'll also like the ending of Seto no Hanayome
Both of these series involve a dense, perverted, and slow (typical harem lead) male that goes to live in a place full of girls. In both series, all of the girls start to like the male lead for various reasons but can't bring themselves to admit their feelings.... very typical harms on both accounts.
Both feature a male who is more or less forced into a situation where he is living with a number of very different girls.
The characters in both have virtually the same personality types, as both series's feature:
- A level headed, fairly pleasant male who's your typical tsundere victum
- A bossy, violent 'head of the household', obvious love interest girl
- A grumpy girl who's involved in a love triangle with the above
- A mischevious, creative girl (one in 'Yoichi', two in 'Hina')
- A 'cute' little moe girl (these two are virtually idenitical)
Ecchi related misunderstandings and fanserivce are of the plenty in, aswell as girl on boy violence.  read more
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.
Both are writen by Ken Akamatsu, both are writen in a simular style... They are both "Harem" type Animes and Mangas, and for the most part the part of the "Pervert" (ecchi) is one of someone accdentaly getting into the situations.
My first impressions is that this was a spirit successor of characters in the Love Hina series.
Looking at Asuna I couldn't help but think it was just Naru, the personality is the same with a similar features.
Negi reminds me of Keitaro, in his hopelessness and clueless demeanor
Nodoka reminds me of Shinobu, with her meekness and flusher look.
Both series overwhelms the viewer with an array of characters, perhaps in hopes that you'll enjoy one of them at least.
However, it's really the pacing of how they've introduced each character and focuses on their distinct moe personalities that bought me the familiarity of Love Hina.
One guy, lots of pretty girls; That's the way things work in in the lives of both main male characters. Both of them develop a certain relationship with one of the girls, but due to the other girls, other guys and various negative circumstances, those relationships just don't work out the way they're supposed to, which produces some hilarious moments. Furthermore, the main male characters get treated like living punching bags by most of the girls, for performing unintended perverted actions.
Both were tagged as Harem and romance.
Both lead male characters got into the harem by accident.
Both harems often give their male characters a headache or other bodily sufferings that they received throughout the season of the anime they belong to. .
Both lead male characters are not doing very well with their studies (not making it to "Tokyo University" also qualifies).
Both lead male characters has one female member of his harem whom they feared the most.
In one anime it is the harem who came to the lead male character, while in the other anime it is the lead male character who came to the harem.......by accident.
One male character (Keitaro Urashima) is a hopeless romantic (not until Naru declared her love for him) , an accidental (and unlucky) perv and a wuss, while the other one, Chitose Hitotose is a bad ass and a laid back loner.
Though both animes have a "Harem" tag, in "Love Hina" Keitaro is a (reluctant) lolicon* co'z he's older than the women in his harem (according to info there is a 2 year age difference between Naru and Kietaro), while in "Happy Lesson," the harem was mostly a bunch of sotacon* ladies who have the heart (or hots) to help Chitose.
*it maybe a bit off but, I just like using the terms.
In "Love Hina" Keitaro Urashima ended up with Naru Narusegawa (which is obvious), while in "Happy Lesson" though Chitose may have kissed Mutsuki Ichimomji ,the story it still left unanswered as to who Chitose really likews among the 5 women who were in wedding gowns (final OVA).
- Both have university try-outs
- Both have romance
- Both have a girl who doesn't really open up to the guy
- Both have other girls interested in the guy
- Both have him kissing someone else before her
- Both have him staying in a girls boarding
- In both the boarding is run by his relatives
- In both he has a pretty aunt
For another show about a simple guy living with a bunch of weirdos, give this one a spin. Like Love Hina, the main couple is obvious right off the bat and it holds the same psuedo shoujo-ai air. Above all, it's a very funny and very interesting follow-up if you still haven't gotten enough of the genre.
Both center around a romantic pairing made obvious at the beginning and beset by challenges in the form of other interested women, and both go to greater-than-average lengths, for the one-guy-multiple-girls approach, to flesh out their casts. Both feature a tsundere female lead who seems to enjoy nothing more than abusing the male lead. Love Hina has less magic, but its various side plots are often no less fantastical than if it did have magic.
-Guy in place he does not belong
-Different girls attracted to guy
-Love interest constantly beats guy up
The main difference with these to anime is that one is a magical anime, and the other is not.
Another harem style anime, with similar (but vastly improved) humor, and much greater sentimentality with a whole lot less predictability. Basically a huge upgrade, watch Love Hina first, then move on to Shuffle!
First, both anime focus on a typical nice guy surrounded by beautiful women who (not all at first) have intense feelings of love for him. Just being around the guy seems to make other women fall for him in both animes.
They both have a serious side and a wild, funny side. I got mostly the same emotions from both anime series. Shuffle! goes the step further than Love Hina and gives you some partially nude shots.
Both series are classic romantic comedies about an average Japanese guy who, through a comical twist of fate, finds himself inadverdently living with a herem of spunky, pretty girls. There are no lack of hot springs, either.
In both series, a guy moves into a girls-only dormitory and is beaten by a long-haired girl who claims she does not like him, despite the fact that she does, while being teased by her friend for that. The protagonists share the desire to be better in order to reach their goals. The cast is also similar, consisting of a tsundere; a lazy tease; a hyperactive girl; a shy maiden; and a quiet, calm virgin. The episodes of Amaenaideyo!! and Love Hina are filled with funny, happy, romantic and dramatic moments.
The characters are almost the same: except in the Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankei Nai yo ne the romance is between a step brother and stepsister.
Both are so simmilar that they are like mirrors of each other.
Both are romantic comedies. Also, school rumble have more "triangler loves" than love hina. Protagonists are similar: Keitaro and Harima has great difficulty in declaring for your beloved girl and have more than 1 girl loving they.
Love Hina are more focused on Love and School Rumble are more focused on Comedy.
Theses are romance shows that takes place in a hotel/ boarding house, that has a variety of unique characters. Love Hina despite it being a harem show, it focuses mainly on one main girl of that harrem as the main males love interest who is also a fellow student of his. They main romantic leads per-say happen to have several aspects in common such as they, bad temper and the tendency to smack people about.
I both anime there is one boy surrounded by many girls in the same house. both main boys in these series are really unfortunate most of the time, but they make it up with speaking from the heart.
both anime are focusing a lot on comedy with a hint of romance. if you like one of these you'll surely like the other too. :)
a guy and a group of girls living in a single dormitory.. plus shinobu maehara and shizu fujimura both ran away from home and moved in a dormitory due to a domestic turmoil. kono aozora is the drama version, and focuses on the male lead's brother-sister relationship to the female leads while love hina is more on comedy
Both are set in a Dormitory.
Both have the same Harem and romance genre.
Both muchachos are gentlemen.
Both muchachos have someone in their harem whom they don't wanna mess with.
Both have one member of the harem who's older than the muchacho.
One has an extra ecchi, slice of life, shonuen and comedy gernre, while the other has a school genre.
In LH nearly every members of the harem has feelings for the muchacho, while in KAY the muchacho maintains a kind of brother and sisters relationship with his harem.
LH has a couple of OVA's and special episode added, while in KAY it is only limited to 13 episodes.
In LH the muchacho has a happy ending with one of the members of the harem, while in KAY the muchacho never ended up with any of the members of the harem but, he is still in touch with one of them.
LH is purely comedy, while KAY is more on the dramatic side.  read more
Both star the most unenviable male living in the most enviable scenario. These series are classic comedy-harem animes that will leave you wanting to watch them over and over again due to their witty slice-of-life scenarios and enjoyable cast of characters.
Both are about a boy who fails his exams and goes to live at a house. Keitaro moves to this place, while Wataru Minakami goes to Promised Island. Both of them meet a lot of girls. Differences: SisterPrincess- Wataru finds 13 girls who are his SISTERS. And sister princess is more kid friendly too. Sister Princess is Pg-10, while Love Hina is PG-13. so if your more 10-ish than 13- you will LOVE sispri, not LOVE hina.
They have simular idea- childhood sweetheart but after maincharacters' sweetheart left, years have passed, the main characters met their sweetheart but their sweetheart have became more perverted and those boy as main character got hitted by another girl main character because their pervert doings.
Masuo Fuguno and Urashima Keitaro are very similar, they are both clumsy and haven't had many experiences with girls. They also look really similar. The girl love interests are really similar as well and have a tsundere attitude.
Both have a college school theme. Love Hina is starts out pre-college, Genshiken is during college.
Both have character(s) that are struggling with what to do with their future.
You might like the development of character relations similarities and character growth.
The overall plot focuses mainly on how the characters are getting by the changes in their responsibilities into adulthood, while weighing heavily on relationships that forms in the process of school life.
Technically, the two shows are quite different. I thought that they were most alike with their humor. There's quite alot of quirky slapstick comedy mixed in with a bit of drama and romance (mostly with the supporting characters in Fruits Basket). I found both shows very enjoyable and extremely easy to watch.
both series' male protagonists are a couple with the female protagonists and have known each other since childhood and are also wearing glasses
tetsuro tanaka (Koi koi 7) is immediately welcomed by the heroines and protects him while keitaro urashima (love hina) recieved torture on his first encounter with the heroines (except for shinobu who debuted in episode 2 and motoko who appeared in episode 3)
also, sakuya kamatsuri and kaolla su seems to be both experts in weapons specially when the latter used a bazooka to chase off a disguised keitaro (they'd even make a perfect team)
Shows that center around a group of people living together. Episodic and comedic! drama added between the character's relations! (more in Love Hina). About young adults, college/academy! Girls taking baths!
Both involves a guy who is searching for somebody, the difference; one is searching for a girl whom he promise he will join her to enter Tōkyō daigaku or Todai, while the other one is searching for his supposed sister.
•Everybody has a thing for the main character.
•Involves multiple women living with the main character (they all live in the same dorm).
•Every women (and male who acts feminine) all have different personalities, so its a never a dull moment.
•Similar genres (harem and romance)
•The mc is always getting hurt by his lovers
•They all live together (mc of Love Hina is the manager of the dormitory while the mc of Monster Musume is the host/owner of his homestay)
•Casts have similar personalities
•Monster Musume is a lot more 'bold' than Love Hina
•In Love Hina the characters (or at least most) are humans while in Monster Musume, it consists of humans and monster girls
•LH has 24 episodes while MM has 12
I think Love Hina has more comedy then Hachimitsu to Clover. Both both have that "friends groups," an idiot character in that group, characters that have unrequited love, and main characters that are students.
In comparison a great romantic drama,which tells the strong bonds between a boy and a girls and there problems caused by that love!!
the life spent in the past and the future outcome to it in many other difference aspects,both adds a heart warming feelings in heart and happy ending together
Both series focus around a kind hearted guy, who just can't seem to catch a break. In both series they meet up with that "special girl", who drastically changes their lives.
However MANY other girls are thrown into the picture to draw the two main characters away from each other.
both series have sword wielding girls (motoko and tsubaki), both series' male protagonists wears glasses, and are romantically linked with the female protagonists and both female protagonists even sang onscreen
Both series has a strange comedy and romance side to it that makes it entertaining to watch. But more than that, I My Me! Strawberry Eggs and Love Hina has some other similarities:
Both series features some ecchi moments that are often misunderstood.
Both series has a similar theme of restriction in which the main protagonist becomes likeable throughout the episodes. The main girl of course develops feelings for him and they form a bond.
Both series takes place at a school setting and in fact features school life as one of its prominent themes.
Main protagonist and girl both have feelings for each other. However, it's not that simple. There are countless misunderstandings and obstacles in the way. Like drama? like love triangles? like romance? Then, you might be interested in both series.
Both are romantic comedies that focus on two people (mainly). Both are sort of "classic" shows which are older than 10 years, but awesome shows nevertheless. Love Hina is more "harem" and Kare Kano focuses more on character-relationship growth. Love Hina focuses more on comedy and absurd situations while Kare Kano is a bit more serious and mature.
One boy always been beat by the main girl who loves and doesn't love him at the same time. Sometimes surrounded by many girls like in Love Hina and as always leading the main to be beaten.
Also Youko (Main Inukami!) and Naru (Main Love Hina) does not only share the same Seiyuu (Yui Horie) but also the same violent and love & love not attitude.
For some reason Sekirei's first episode reminded me to Love Hina, specifically to Keitaro; Minato and Keitaro were both trying to get into college but, sadly for them, they failed several times the entrance exam.
Both shows are Harem animes. This essentially means there is one guy and several girls who like him. Both are extremely funny and light hearted. While Clannad is based on a school setting for the most part, Love hina is more set in a home setting. If you have seen and liked love hina, you will probably like clannad, and vice versa.
Both are really sweet, in a sense that you just can't get the story and the characters out of your head for weeks, so good they are. Well, both are comedies, both involve unlikely love relationships which are denied by everybody including those in love, both contain a fair amount of "fated to be together" coincidences which make you jump at your seat smiling and clapping your hands happily, realizing what's going to happen and enjoying it in advance; and fair amount of heart-warming turns. Not only that, but - I don't believe I have to write this, but the word "comedy" can mean anything these days - both are basically packed with fun, they're fun non-stop.
They are also similar in how they deal with love scenes. No teary-eyed separations and confessions every five minutes, no queues of kyuute girls waiting for onii-chans at their doors in the morning, no otaku service (some fan service is present in Love Hina though), no time wasted on cliches boring but required by genre. The love depicted in both Love Hina and Toradora is _normal_, the kind you would think you can probably see everywhere, although you can't, but that's another sad story. read more
If you enjoyed the humor in love hina then you'll really appereciate this anime's sense of humor because it's a lot smarter (quite brilliant)
you'll laugh a lot and if you're worreid about akazukin cha cha being childish let me say it's just as if not less childish than love hina.
brilliant anime aimed towards children & dumb anime aimed towards adults/teenagers~
BAV anime doesn't do the same joke over and over again and it is quite funny at times and make you laugh. It has lots of characters to but all the characters are likable/memorable.
It has good drama/comedy I guess a little shoujo-ai but the shoujo-ai in BAV is more convincing/funny than the romance in Love Hina. Also it has a plot and that is developed and resolved.
Also you'll recognize Shinobu and Kaolla Su in BAV who were more likable imho in bav.
This anime is crazier/wackier than love hina and it does in a way that isn't idiotic whatsoever somehow. if you want to laugh watch this, also it's ecchi like love hina too but it actually has a reason to be there.
The anime are both by the same creator (Ken Akamatsu) and have the same character designs. The anime don't really have much in common aside from that. But there are some cameos and references to Love Hina in Mao-chan, which can make it more fun.
Love Hina is based off of Maison Ikkoku storyline , but of a much lower quality. Insert slapstick humor, more uninteresting jokes that deviates from the storyline and you have Love Hina. Watch Maison Ikkoku, the original story of a person who falls in love at first sight.
The story is very similar because it revolves around a central character(who actually kindda look alike) surrounded by members of the opposite sex; also, the main story isn't love, but it seems to involve all of the characters.
This is basically what would happen if Love Hina had a female protagonist. There's a bit more Ecchi in Tachibanakan Triangle, but it captures the feel of both, Love Hina is definitely better romance / story-wise though, TT is purely slapstick comedy with ecchi thrown in.
give these two series a crossover regardless of animation and with no canonicity to the series' respective storylines, and surely, kaolla and shinobu may both get along well to the four characters while nobue may have a mature relationship with motoko, kitsunne and naru
the main male characters both have feelings for the ladies (keitaro to narusegawa and chitose to mutsuki) and both females also ended up having feelings for the males.. also, both have sword-wielding females: motoko aoyama and yayoi sanzenin and both even use their swords to intimidate the males and uzuki and kaolla are both childish
These animes are nothing alike in terms of storyline, but in terms of main characters relationship, these two are very similar. Loser and Tsundere (not as much as a tsundere in Occult Academy but close), heading towards the same goal. If you like a slapstick relationship between hero and heroine you should like these two.
While watching Love Hina i had the seam fealing when i watched To Love Ru
They both are ecchi and have many beautiful girl around a boy,even tough To love ru is a bit mature :D
So if you like Love Hina and don't mind a little bit of ecchi you will like To Love Ru :]
Both animes are about some bussiness with many hilarious scenes, funny characters and a kind of romance. Some characters have similarities, like a guy who are always in trouble (Takanashi and Keitaro), a girl who are always punching the protagonist (Inami and Narusegawa), a girl with a sword (Yachiro and Motoko), a girl causing problems to everyone (Yamada and Sarah) and a lazy employee (Kyouko and Haruka).
These are two animes that in my opinion have a very similar humor to them. It's one boy living with a lot of hott girls and things have some.... sexual tension. It's perverted, but in a funny way. If you like one odds are you will like the other although I prefer Tenchi.
both series' main protagonists have known each other since childhood, and have an object to remember a promise (sandbox and harmonica) plus have ladies skilled with a sword, hikari tsukishiro and motoko aoyama, and cheery and energetic girls kaolla su and hinata okano
