Both have the same school, romance, comedy and slice of life genre.
Both main male character have the same personality and even are in the same ridiculous predicament.
Both involves main female character, who are stoic and weird.
Both were set in some kind of boarding house.
One anime has an extra harem genre, while the other has seinen as its.
The female character in one anime is completely depended on the male character, while the female character in the other anime is a tough nut to crack.
The male character in one anime is at the same age and the same year level as the female, while the female character in the other anime is a year older than the male character.
Have you ever felt how heavy is to look after a female that's attractive enough to be your next girl? Have you ever felt how airhead can she be and she wouldn't notice? Bingo! The comedy of these show is one of the best here, you're going to find it fun to watch any of these.
A fairly normal guy enters an old dorm filled with social misfits. While Sakurasou is filled with mostly geniuses of one kind or another and Kawaisou people that don't fit in for slightly different reasons they share a very similar atmosphere. Also, romance ^^
Note: Based on only one episode of Kawaisou, but they already seem similar enough for a recommendation
•both anime are pretty much set in the exact setting as each other
•both anime focus on the main protagonist male which moves into a dorm/house, where the not so average residents reside and make the most out of their lives fun
•both protagonists are totally different in personality,you have one that over reacts to anything that leads to romance in any sense, and is not realistic at all, wheres as one is more realistic and more normal
•if you like one, you would possibly like the other, with the random personalities of each resident that resides in the dorm, that carry the show.
The same scenario where it is set in a boarding house, where the people are a bit unusual and there is one member of the house who is the only normal guy around who has to deal with these people on a day to day basis.
These are slice of life school, romance/comedies.
In both we follow a relatively normal boy that moves into a dorm/house filled with "lunatics"
Making it feel very similar.
Even though, Sakurasou is much more drama based, ups and down that give good character development. Also having more episodes to do so, and Kawaisou mainly focuses on comedy all through.
+ A group of misfit high schoolers (though Kawaisou has some older inhabitants as well) live together and try to get along
+ Above average animation and character designs
+ Similar romance element
+ Enjoyable comedic moments mostly brought about the characters' quirks
- So far, Kawaisou doesn't seem to have the good drama that Sakurasou has
First of all, they even have similar settings. Both is set on, well, as we all know that 90% of anime is set in, high school, in a dorm or at least dorm-like setting.
Main character falls in love with main heroine immediately in both ones.
Only difference I'd say is that one is...well...better than the other. Sakurasou shows how harsh life could be while Kawaisou doesn't and is more of a love comedy than a slice of life. Preferring one might not immediately mean you prefer another.
The both main character's had a ordinary life that are be ruined by their boarding house.The boarding house have a contain strange types of people which one of them will has a close relationship with the main character.
Both shows have an interesting set of quirky, really strange characters and the humor of the shows is mostly based on them. The characters are great in both shows, so the humor is also great. They both have somewhat ecchi moments, however, and can be quite lewd, but overall they are both really funny, and the ecchi parts are not unbearable by any means
Both series have the same setting, characters and comedy are also very similar. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo tends to head in a more serious direction with the drama while Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou sticks more to the comedy side of things. Both great series with a highly enjoyable and memorable cast of characters.
both are romantic comedies that follow the lives of an ' average ' guy alongside of some rather eccentric characters in a particular residence. sakurasou is a school dorm, and kawaisou is a boarding house. the endeavours and respective development undergone is notably different in the two series, with sakurasou being more impressive in that aspect. however kawaisou has a very appealing dynamic in regards to the relations between characters; both platonic and romantic. the animation and colour is truly breathtaking in both, though kawaisou is considerably more vivid. both also, both have truly standout soundtracks.
Both revolve around the main character being forced to live in a very odd complex with very very odd people. Both have an interesting and cute love story with tons of sexual humor or just plain comedy. I enjoyed watching both immensely with Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou being my favorite. I definitely recommend both for those romance/comedy lovers!
both are slice of life anime with tons of characters and try to be unique and funny .
difference is that bokura managed to be consistent with how good the characters are and how funny the show is which is the complete opposite to what sakurasou did .
Both anime are very great. As i started watching Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou, I came to realise that it is very similar to Sakurasou. You have an ordinary guy stuck with weird people. He falls in love with a silent and shy girl, somewhat like Shiina from Sakurasou. Their relationships in both anime develop from day to day. If you really like romance animes give it a shot. But if you like anime with lots of "lovey" scenes, you might be dissapointed.
Both Sakurasou and Kawaisou have a house that is followed by sou... In all seriousness, both anime follow a main character who ends of living in a house full of "unique" characters, Sakurasou, and Kawai Complex. In this house they deal with the shenanigans of their new roommates, try to get used to it, and of course, meet a love interest. They are both funny RomCom's that will have you awwing, crying, and laughing. Well worth a watch!
* Lots of different kind of people living under the same roof/dorminatory...(Danger!!!!)
* In both we have «kuudere» female lead & goody-two shoes/annoying male lead...
* Weak romance feeling ( Bokura wa Minna especially )...
* Both shows has a little bit of [ecchi stuff] [mostly imaginery]
* Both has really nice char designs [SnPnK has a little bit better eye designs]...
* Both have really awesome side characters (they're funny, interesting)
†SnPnK is a little bit dramatic ( BwMK fails at it )....+ Sakurasou has 24 episodes (pacing = good) & ( Bokura wa Minna has 12+ ova/special (terrible pacing)
They both take place in a similar environment where everyone needs to deal with each other in order to learn and further develop their relationships.
They comedic aspect is present in both, while one strides at romance much more than the other
Very enjoyable and addictive
The two male protagonists of these two anime are both starting a new life in an unfamiliar dormitory/complex. They soon realize the residents inside are all considered weird/strange. In spite of that, the plot consists of many fun adventures, laughter, and a little bit of romance. However, Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou focuses mainly on comedy while Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo tends to be more dramatic.
Both feature a likeable cast that live together and enjoy their daily life. While Sakurasou has dramatic elements Kawai Complex is focused more-so on the comedy but has certain dramatic undertones similar to that of Sakurasou. In both, the protagonists finds himself boarding with "unique" individuals due to certain circumstances, and explores his interactions, as well as the lives of others involved. These two anime have down to earth slapstick comedy scenes, as well as enjoyable running gags.
What if a normal guy who just wants to enjoy his adolescence begins to live in a house full of strange people of all kinds? These two animes reflect exactly that, with the added similarity which is that both protagonists are interested in a very introverted girl that is impossible to feel contempt. It is noted that Bokura doesn't deepen as much as Sakurasou in terms of dreams and concerns of each character because of its short duration, but in my opinion Bokura has much more comedy. In short, if you liked the way Sorata suffered and appreciated their neighbors, definitely you will like Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou. read more
Almost the same thing.
- Both the settings involve a dorm with weirdos.
- The female MC is silent and socially incept.
- The male MC's characters are also about the same. But Kawaisou's MC is not a whiny little bitch.
Here's how Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou is better though,
- No overbearing drama. Just comedy.
- No immature love-triangles.
- Although the animation in Sakurasou is not bad, it is much more gorgeous in Kawaisou.
basically it almost got the same templete what make it different that Kawaisou more focusing on the comedy and the story is not that amazing if compare with Sakurasou. But Yeah just for fun sake recommend watch this
The setting is similar, which is a boy who moved to a dorm and meet some "unique" people , like the masochist , the drunk old lady who cant get a boyfriend , and of course the main heroin is a kuu-dere (which is a plus for me). but over all i'll give it a 8/10.
The truth is that your relationship is evident, both are about a boy who arrives at new school, he moved to a guesthouse where coexists with quirky characters, but among them there is a shy girl who ends up liking the protagonist for what he is (Being a Lover of books or just some kind of pet) doesnt have to emphasize on its premise, but what characterizes both animes is the "hook" that has to the receiver who goes to see chapter after chapter to know how the protagonist tried to approach the girl. // La verdad es que su parentesco es evidente, ambos van sobre un chico que llega a nueva escuela y se muda a un hostal donde convive con personajes extravagantes pero entre ellos hay una chica tímida, que le termina gustando al protagonista por como es (Siendo una amante de los libros o simplemente una especie de mascota) no hay que recalcar sobre su premisa, pero lo que caracteriza a ambos animes es el "enganche" que tiene hacia el receptor que va viendo capitulo tras capitulo para saber como intentara el protagonista acercarse a la chica. read more
Bokura wa minna kawaisou is kinda similar to Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo, because of the fact that both main characters living in a dorm, where they met the girl they like. In both animes there are a lot of slice of life and we see them come closer to each other every episode.
Both involve the same plot where MC gets to be in the company of oddballs.
Both also involve MC living by himself and getting annoyed by the people he lives with.
The MC in one anime is a high schooler, while the MC in the other anime is a grown up.
Both have the same situation where guy goes to some place to to find himself from the frying pan to the fire kind of predicament. Both also have the same set of characters that provides such annoyance to the main character.
While not a romantic comedy, Barakamon holds a very similar sense of humour to Kawai Complex Guide. Both series involve a main character who moves out on his own, only to find himself surrounded by others who won't seem to leave him alone. Both shows involve some very funny characters along with a similar art style that will surely keep you laughing throughout.
Both series are about moving into a new environment. The main protagonist from both series becomes acquainted with another character whom they have a crush on but struggles to tell their true feelings. On the other hand, that very person has a very dense personality who is hard to get close to. Nonetheless, the development attachment of both series' main character is evident as they spent more time together. There is also a decent amount of humor and diverse cast of characters of various personalities. Recommended for fans interested in slice of life comedy.
The first thing I noticed when watching Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is that it reminded me of something. First I wasn't sure what is was but I found out soon after.
It was Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou!
First of all: The setting. Both animes are set in a regular school - slice of life setting and are dealing with the single-sided love between the two main characters and have a focus on the genres comedy and little bit of romance.
Another thing these shows share is that in both animes the main character somehow tries to get closer to her/his crush by spending time with him/her.
But the most important fact they have in common is that both animes are full of weird and unique characters and every episode is just over-the-top hilarious and full of laughter. You won't regret having spent your time watching either of those. read more
-Both have a great cast of characters, touches of romance, & plenty of humor.
-Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou is a lot pervier (it's just suggestive in a really funny but not gross way) and it also paces the series out well enough to weigh the slice of life, romance, & character development equally.
So if you're looking for a romcom that's ecchi but really cute too, I recommend Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou!
-As for Gekkan Shoujo it's a great anime to unwind--they focus on humorous adventures at school & approach romance too, but don't have an intense focus on it. You learn to know and love all the characters in the process.
-Both have great art style too. read more
-Simple story but it turns out very good
-Characters aren't annoying but rather quirky/lovable/funny.
-Random shit happens
-Unique art style
-The romance in these 2 animes aren't too irritating,cringe worthy or bland but instead romance is very fluffy.
Maison Ikkoku nostalgia hit me hard during Kawai's first ep. You have a student moving into a boarding house, finding his new room invaded by a weirdo, and - on the way out of the door - seeing a girl he falls in love with at first/second sight. And, of course, he then decides to stay--putting up with the other residents. IT'S MAISON IKKOKU BORN AGAIN!!!!....
...well, not really. I mean, it was obviously inspired by Maison Ikkoku - as all boarding house rom-coms are to a certain extent - but the main romance is nothing like in MI. The heroine in Kawai is more like a slightly less bitchy/more eccentric version of Suzuka (heroine from another series that took a little from MI), where as in MI Kyoko was a widow in her early 20's with LONG hair. And, whatever Godai's failings were in MI, he didn't blush constantly over purepure lovelove. Or stalk Kyoko, as Kawai's lead stalks his love. Plus, the leads in Kawaii are both still in high school--considerably younger than the leads in MI.
The main similarities lie in the old-fashioned boarding house setting, where practically all of the scenes take place (like in MI, where college appeared rarely), and the vibrant/eccentric supporting characters that live there. In MI, poor Godai was bullied/tortured 'lovingly' by the other residents as he pursued his love, and although Kawai's lead doesn't have it so bad, he still has to deal with a drunken-sluttyish character (two of MI's characters rolled into one), a weirdo room-mate into S&M (equivalent to MI's snake-like voyeur, Yotsuya) and a twisted-pure college girl that has already gotten him beaten up. There's a whole lot of trolling potential, in short. read more
Male character fighting for a girls love while living in the same dorm (communal apartment house in Maison Ikkoku). The girls family owns the place so she has strings she can pull.
The main character also shares a room with a strange man who is constantly invading his personal space. (In Maison Ikkoku, Mr. Yoshida lives in a separate room, but makes his way in through a hole in the wall constantly.)
Both shows also have a risque, yet sensitive girl for a tenant.
•Both have calm School Life settings
•Both have a shy female MC
•Both protagonists are somewhat innocent to the core that want to love for the first time
•Both Romance/School Life/Drama with a sprinkle of Comedy
-Both main girl characters are shy and somewhat "loners"
-Both main guy characters try to get closer to the girl characters
-Both have unique art styles
-Both have honest, light-hearted, slowly paced love stories
A sweet love story between two wholesome characters both including very introvert girls who are misunderstood in their expression of how they feel. Both girls were outcasts early in their schooling for coming across as scary/mean.
- Cool short hair female characters.
- The male main characters has a crush on the female main characters.
He ALWAYS looks at her, thinks about her and cares ONLY for her!!!
(In short, he really do LOVES her so much)
- They live near each other, go to the same school, go home together.
- In the main characters house/apartment has ONE of a Alcoholism-BIG BOOBS-SISTER.
In both anime, there are people who share same house. You can watch daily lifes of these habitants. Kuragehime is a josei anime but more likely to a shoujo in some scenes. You can feel 'slice of life' theme in Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou more. Both anime are enjoyful, i laughed so much while watching them :) I think if you like one, then you can enjoy other too ^^
There's plenty of realism coming from Hanasaku Iroha and Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou. From a viewer's perspective, the main character goes through a life journey as they move into a new residence. They find new friends and get used to their new life style that I find can be reletable. There's decent comedy, drama, and character interactions. The main characters also forges memorable relationships with others through their development. Both series has a small yet colorful cast of characters that I think people will find attractive with their own dynamics.
Realistic slice-of-life anime with plenty of comedy. HanaIro and Kawaisou both feature the main character moving into an inn/dorm with the intention of reinventing themselves. For Ohana, this means getting used to the work at the inn and proving that she is competent to her coworkers and her grandmother. For Usa, this means getting a girlfriend - specifically, getting closer to the antisocial book-loving girl who lives in the same building. Their stories feature moments of success but also plenty of setbacks as the other colorful characters generally do their best to make things difficult.
For those who enjoy RomCom/SOL anime, I'd recommend Clannad.
The art style is similar.
The storyline falls into the same high-school love trope.
Strong character progression.
The story is about the protagonists efforts to get closer to a quiet and quirky girl.
Every once in a while.. After having watched a bunch of anime.. You come across a short 12 episode gem of hilarity, that will make you laugh. Both of these anime have done that for me, and hopefully you enjoy them as much as i did.
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.
Toradora was absolutely the sweetest anime's I've ever seen. This anime was the first I saw of its kind. I was more into the action/thriller genre but I am totally converted to the romantic/comedy/slice of life genre. This anime surely made my top 5 list and I love it so much for how sweet and cute it is. I definitely recommend it to those who are looking for an anime of the genre I stated previously.
Interesting and very funny characters. Both Anime(s) do have some moments that will shake your hear to its core, and can be serious. Nevertheless, the comedy is very nice and I can assure you that you will have a fun time watching either! But just watching one of these only, is not enough. Watch both!
Hachimitsu to Clover and Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou adapts a similar atmosphere involving a group of people sharing a dorm/apartment and living together. They build relationships based on the activities they do in their every day lives. There is a similarity in their mood that also focuses on the growth of youth for the main characters. Among other things, there is innocent romance as well as charming comedy. I recommend both series for anyone looking for simple stories that tells the young lives of a group of people building off of their youth.
light hearted romance.good dose of comedy.light on the cliche drama side.these are the main points which appealed to my taste.
also the main heroines for both are withdrawn and the protagonist makes effort to reach them.
both have a colorful sub cast
Both have a similar setting and each of the character have their own UNIQUE personality! Which is same to both anime! Especially the main character!!
Not to mention the similarity in genre -
Both are comedy, romance and school live as well!
Main protagonists are ordinary school students. One day they suddenly meet cute girl and get involved with her (in Mayo Chiki! they share secret and in Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou their live in same house). At first they are not getting along, girls don't like main protagonists. But in time they experience a lot of unexpected events and their relationship are developing and they falling in love in with each other.
So you like comedy-romance Anime about high schoolers with a lot comedy when their relationship are developing, I strongly recommend this Anime,
Both female main characters don't have many friends and the main character has an interest in the other. Both are also comedies where Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo seems to have more of a story-line with the whole body switching theme.
1) Both MC move to a new place to find something new. Usa wants to live alone by himself and Hachiken wants to escape from the pressure of his family while finding what it's like to live in countryside.
2) Both MC meet their heroine in their new place, eventhough those two have different personality.
3) Has the same genre, Slice of Life. Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou tells a lot about daily house activity and its member's life, and Gin no Saji has daily life of a countryside as their story.
If you enjoyed the endearing aspects of gradual development of young love in Tsuki ga Kirei (awkwardness and all), Bokura wa Minna has a decent amount of it, so not to worry. The art and animation is fantastic as well (ignoring the comedic moments).
Cool and sociable protagonist likes a shy girl with no social skills but intelligent and very charismatic secondary characters .
the two animes are slice of lifes of comedy and romance so ligth to watch.
It involves the MC in an drom , where he/she is in love with someone in the dorm, whom were proving to be quite a hassle. What's worse was that them MC were surrounded by weirdos. The difference, in Bokura the weirdos were a mixed bunch of people whom were quite unpredictable, while in Hatsukoi, most of them weirdos, have a lot of sexual innuendos within them.
Though both come from the same genre, they have a significant differences in their respective romantic-comedy blends. Sukitte li na yo is more romantic while Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou is more comedic. Aside from that, they have similar character art, quiet female protagonists who go through a progressive change, a school setting, entertaining supporting characters, and romantic moments that'll inspire a smile.
Both animes are about a guy falling in love with a girl in school. Both girl MC's have a very similar personality of being quite shy. Both guy MC's are also similar in every way possible. Outgoing, easily shows his expressions and are in love with the shy and quiet girl MC. Only difference is that in Nijiiro Days, there are 4 guy MC's and 4 girl MC's while Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou only has one male and female MC
They have a similarity in characters. Both Usa and Shoutaro are alike, they are high school boys who tried to get closer to their older female relative. Also the two female leads are lived with an old woman who are good in cooking. So, if you enjoyed one, you might like the other.
Romantic comedy on both sides that is played out very well . Unique , better said strange characters , though in Chuunibyou we don't have an ' M ' individual .
The male MC is almost normal on both sides .
Like, Shokugeki no Souma, Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou is in another co-ed living environment with hilarious slap-stick comedy featuring two high school students but also mixed in with older roommates. Also amazingly consistent comedy with extremely eccentric characters. Because both involve some eccentric personalities living in a co-ed environment the comedic tone is similar but without the romantic-based narrations that Kawai Complex's main character had.
•Both have calm School Life settings
•Both have a shy female MC
•Both protagonists are somewhat innocent to the core that want to love for the first time
•Both Romance/School Life/Drama with a sprinkle of Comedy
both anime have similar stories when the main character go to live in a new place and fall in love with someone who lives on the same home! and all the people who lives there are so lively xD the difference is that the main character in Bokura is a male and in Hiatari is a female
There's a similar feeling I get from Tamayura and Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou. For starters, they both take place in a quiet town with a small yet colorful cast of characters. They live life in simplicity although sometimes run into common everyday troubles. But nonetheless, the characters seize every moment to capture memories and make the most of it from the relationships they develop. There is decent amount of comedy and slice of life feeling coming from both series. If you're into a show with a simple and light toned story, give both of these a try.
How is a romantic slice of life comedy similar to an action packed anime with supernatural stuff happening almost every episode, including demons and the like? Not at all! But if you liked the characters from one of these two, then you will find the other anime's characters stunningly similar. Of course not completely the same, not even in the gender department. It might be a good gateway for a person that wants to get into rom-coms or action, supernatural animes, thanks to how familiar the characters will feel.
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).
About groups of weird people. While the characters do vary a lot, both stories are told from the male protagonist's POV as he is thrust into this bizarre group of people. While Haruhi and Ritsu could not hardly be any more opposite in personality, it's the MC's reactions and narration of the events as he watches the female protagonist and other main characters that make these shows somewhat similar. They are sarcastic, critical, and objected to being with these people at first, but still grow to like being around them despite their quirks. These shows have similar mixes of comedy with a little drama, good animation, and a pretty good cast of characters: quiet girl, large-breasted girl (though their personalities are opposites), troublemaker, strange guy who just goes with the flow, and the protagonists. read more
Both of these anime are very similar in romance, where the main character chases the other girl. Both of the female characters in both of the anime are tough nut to crack.
The difference is that in A Town Where You live, they're in more of the drama side compared to Kawaisou where they're full of comedy and light heartiness
