It's been a while since I've rewatched Ouran back in 2009 but I will never forget how it made me laugh and moved me with each character development. Truthfully, I've only seen 3 eps so far of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun but I've laughed and giggled in each one. I like the main heroine, Sakura, because like Haruhi, she doesn't get carried away into each character's unique world, and like in ouran, the guys are handsome, and plus, gekkan shoujo has their own Prince. (And Nozaki-kun's tall height and sexy short black hair reminds me of Mori-senpai.) I'm highly recommending this anime because of its high school  read more

Both titles are character driven comedy. Both titles have little girl befriend deliquent girl with cute side. Both titles posters looks alike. Nozaki romance is main plot while Tanaka is in the background.

There are some similarities between these two animes: - Same type of humour with the heroine and hero being involved in ridiculous random situations. - One of the protagonists is completely oblivious of the feelings of the heroine. - One of the protagonists is a mangaka. - Extremely fun scenes involving bikes. - One character that appears to be a rebel/deliquent but has a sensible side. Personally I prefer GSNK because it makes fun about all shoujo stereotypes, but both are really fun so you will enjoy one if you liked the other!

Cute girl who has a crush in a boy. But, the boy is so fanatic into his interest until doesn't heed any feelings from her. So funny and humorous. Same comedy style. School settings.

Nozaki's protagonist's attitude is highly reminiscent of DKnN characters. Laid back, unobtrusive, and at the same time producing an unexpected amount of humorous turn-abouts in seemingly regular and mundane situations. 
report Recommended by tophf
Both are hilarious series, have an even amount of male and female characters, and have cute romantic elements. While Working is about restaurant life and Nozaki-kun is school life, they have the same comedic feel and are both very enjoyable.

Tada-kun wa Koi wo Shnai is basically Nozaki-kun, but without original manga's flaws. Definitely better than Nozaki-kun. If you watched Nozaki-kun, just watch Tadakoi.

Different plots and characters but these anime have a really sweet heroine who tries her best in everything she does to show her feelings and the best friend of the hero which is a very good-looking popular guy but with a soft side. Comedy is always present and the romance in which there are always misunderstandings mostly because the hero is very dense. If you enjoy one you will probably enjoy the other.  
report Recommended by Orulyon
they have a similar feel, set in school, a cast of unique characters, slightly absurd situations in nozaki revolving around manga and in d-frag around games.

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.

Both have a very comical feel to them, and both are centered around romance. Tsurezure Children also focuses on various types of relationships.

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is the romance version of Gintama. It has the same kind of humor. While it is a Romance, it spends its entire time making fun of the Romance genra, exactly how Gintama spends all of its time make fun of Battle genera. Both are 10/10 in the humor department. ... Similarities, hmmm.. They both take place in Japan.. I think. While not having much in common plot/setting/genera wise, IF you are looking for something that is fall on the floor spray milk out your nose funny, then go watch Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun.

These shows aren't too similar but they still have some similarities. They have magakas as characters, their humor is similar and they have romance elements. Main difference is the fact that Nozak-kun is not really reverse-harem while WatashiMote is.

In both shows, you can find: - A girl with red hair as lead character, both of whom are very attractive to look at (though with almost entirely opposite builds – Chiyo is small in both regular size and boob size, while Kobeni is taller and quite well-endowed) - A somewhat atypical, even unusual teenage romance (between either the leads or the side characters), the extent of which becomes more clear as the show progresses - A somewhat stoic, even dense male lead (which is mostly played for comedy in either show) - Interesting, funny, even quirky side characters.

Although GSNK has a stronger shoujo/romance feel than Nichijou, it is definitely more focused on comedy than actual romance. I wouldn't put it on the same level as Nichijou in regards to "randomness" but it has the same sort of "wtf?!" sense of humor without being crude or crass. It is a fun, somewhat simple anime. If Nichjou made you laugh, I would highly recommend GSNK. 
report Recommended by Karudima
In a certain sense, Saiki can be considered as the "male" version of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, since while Nozaki parodies the shoujo's tropes, setting and characters, Saiki does the same, only with works for the shonen audience. The only difference is that Nozaki is strongly focused on romance and sometimes are sentimental, while Saiki always remains a gag comedy with an unceasing parody and humor.  
report Recommended by RobertBobert
Although Nozaki-kun focuses on a manga artist and Binan is about magical boys, both series are full of wacky, often sarcastic humour that doesn't take itself too seriously. They both take the tropes common to the genres they parody (shoujo manga in Nozaki's case and mahou shoujo series in Binan's) and turn them upside down to create fun comedies.  
report Recommended by lolibuns
Why do I compare these series? The answer is simple, because Kuragehime and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun have a very unique kind of humor and a light-hearted environment. The characters are really adorable, original and memorable, from main characters to side characters and the designs are very diverse as well as their personalities. Good animation, good music, good colors. I felt the same sensation of cheerfulness in both of them and they left a feel of joyfulness in me.

I get a similar feeling when i watch wotaku, how the characters act, the humor, the music, the artstyle. so if you enjoyed nozaki-kun you will definitely love this show! 
report Recommended by noctiscxelum
- Both stories are revolving around an expressionless high school boy/girl who's clueless about romance and even common senses but are writing romance manga. - Both are surrounded by unique casts with almost every one of them has their own pairings (they aren't harem) - Both has romance - Romance in Nozaki-kun isn't as serious as Sakurasou, since its strength lies at its comedy. Meanwhile Sakurasou has some romance.

Binbougami ga! and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun are both hilarious and will have you gaining a six pack by the end of each episode. While Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun has a romantic undertone (or overtone rather?) to the storyline, Binbougami Ga is focus on the character development of both the protagonist and the supporting character. If you like the humor in Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun (I mean if you don't, then why else are you watching the show?) then I would be surprised if you didn't enjoy watching Binbougami ga!.

These felt really similar in the type of comedy used and the laughs that it brought with it. While it involved a different setting, style, and background, both of these are among my favourite comedic anime.

Both of them have romance story that happen in their friends circle (and somewhat, they're connected each other). If you enjoy comedy in nozaki, then you will find same air in nijiiro (with more simple relationship, i think).

Both are gut busting comedy series with heart and a large cast of unique characters that bounce off each other wonderfully. Both also have small romantic sub-plots (although Shojo Nozaki-kun relies more heavily on jokes involving romance) and surprisingly both are light hearted with next to no fanservice.

Similar interaction between a passionate, cheerful girl and an innocent, straight, and 'tough' guy in high schooler's totally (ab)normal everyday life. 
report Recommended by demalion
I found these two similar mainly because of the several misunderstandings that occurred throughout each series; leading to multiple comedic scenarios. However, the misunderstandings are more extreme in Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun as though it is a character itself, it also occurs more often compared to Handa-kun. Both series also focuses on a group of characters in a school setting throughout each series. The level of admiration shown by the Handa fan group/ followers is also similar to the way Chiyo 'admires' Nozaki.

I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this yet, but Love Lab and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun fit together like two peas in a pod. They both rely on parodying shoujo tropes to--successfully--make audiences cry with laughter. I guess the main differences is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun features more the interactions between the male and female characters while Love Lab is more focused on the the sisterhood formed between girls who are just trying to get guys' attentions. If you liked one give the other a try. Seriously, you (most likely) won't regret it.

Both are comedy shows about a stoic MC who "friend-zones" a female who his interested in him.

They are both parodies of their own genres. Romance or action I think it doesn't matter as they are both hilarious.

Both shows have the same style of comedy. Both are romcoms revolving around a shoujo mangaka setting. Both have three couples as well as supporting characters. They have the same atmosphere overall - light and cutesy. The main characters are very similar, as they both get embarrassed easily and have a crush on someone.  
report Recommended by Mayuka
Do you like anime that makes fun of shoujo troupes? then both of these anime have that similarity. While they have different settings and plot, each one of the characters is dedicated to a troupe. Ex: the "prince" character that everyone adores, an actual heroine that is pro-active and down to earth,etc, and hilarious situations are presented. If you enjoy comedy with colorful artwork you might want to try these!

Adaptation of slice of life, comedy, and romance 4-koma manga. Both are about the life of a short-stature girl who secretly in love with the taller guy who's always accompanying her. Nozaki-kun is more centered in the comedy, while Acchi Kocchi has more adorable moments

Surrounded by proficient students who are special in their respective interests. Their set-up love story too, it begins with a one's admiration for his work. While Gekkan Shoujo presents it comedically, expects Hachimitsu to Clover differently though they put Comedy genre on them.

Both series follows a mangaka and the art of making manga. However, this one is more of a comedy, rather than a realistic depiction. The characters are unique and enjoyable. There is some romance, for those of you that liked the romance in Bakuman.

Huh, for once I actually make a recommendation that hasn't been made by 10 other people. This surprises me, especially in this case because these shows struck me as VERY similar in many ways, if not in setting. Both have the feel of a sit-com, with very little overall arc. Really, not counting beginning and end, you could watch both of these anime in scrambled order and they might still work. Both also have characters that EXCEL in... well... being characters! The main casts of both shows more or less abandon tropes, preferring to parodize them instead. Not to mention, both shows are just REALLY  read more

There is a strong emphasis on the creative process -- how manga/light-novels are inspired by the people around the author, and whether the authors actually understand the nature of the relationships they write about. Of course, there's also romance, confusion, strange people doing strange things, etc. In these areas the anime go in very different directions, but that's fine.

Both anime have a very similar humor and general feel to them. They are both romance anime with a strong emphasis on humor. They both have characters who are, or want to be shoujo mangakas. The characters are quite different in Love Stage and Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki Kun but both anime have very good characters that go really well together, and both anime have a central couple with a variety of secondary characters. Both are very good anime and if you like one you will almost certainly like the other.

I consider the style of comedy in this to be very similar. The comedy is derived less from the content of the joke, than it is from the execution (Timing, voice acting and facial expressions) BTW: I recommend the dub for both, although I especially do in the case of Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun (It's one of my top dub recommendations, because the sub isn't funny. I suspect it's the same for Net-juu no Susume but I can't know for sure)

Both high-school based, and both involve a LOT of misunderstandings, misinterpretations and completely oblivious characters. There are also a lot of unexpected reactions and events which become hilarious, along with strong romantic ambition. Both really good and light-hearted shows.

The only thing that can be said about these two shows? Expectations. We all have them, and this is especially true for stereotypes. We generally expect tsunderes to be cute female characters the same way we expect theme parks to be happy, family-friendly fun. In both of these cases, we get our expectation.....and a little more than we bargained for. I can't even explain it without spoiling it.

the humor both anime provide are very similar as well the as the school setting they are both in. gekkan shoujo nozaki kun does not have the familial relationship that ani ni tsukeru has, but the friendships that are in both give off the same vibe as well as lead to hilarious scenarios that are created because of those relationships (both their sibling relationship and friendships).

Both are odd n wacko with atypical characters. Both are character driven - they are well pulled out and the focus of all circumstances, humour or otherwise. Gekkan is multi-character, while Watamote is focused on one female. In a sense, either of the shows are about facing reality.. especially of people's personalities. While Nozaki-kun is centred on a manga artist and his classmate who, for his character models decide to go observe certain personalities, where ideals and presumptions about character types are shattered (in hilarious ways), Watamote deals with the main character facing the realities in facing people and her own presumptions and things she  read more

Comedy shows with similar humour, with the strengths of the show being its diverse, hilarious and idiotic cast. While the plot have their differences, where one is set in an office work place, while another is of high schoolers who work on a manga together, they are both motivated by mild hints of romance (that focuses more on humour than drama). Both are adapted from 4-koma comedy manga, and focuses on the daily lives of the characters as they encounter hilarious day-to-day problems. If you love the humour of one show, then you will definitely love the other and both will leave you laughing non-stop!  read more

Similarities: - The female protagonists are in love with the male protagonists. - The shows both exhibit a light-hearted, romantic setting with some comedic aspects. - There's nothing too dramatic or dark in either of these shows. Everyone's cute. Everyone's nice. Differences: - Momokuri focuses more on the romance as opposed to Gekkan Shojo, which focuses more on comedy. - The female protagonist in Momokuri has a more unusual outlook of love and affection.

If you want a nice school comedy, with some flavor of romance, these 2 are very similar in that sense.

Ah, certainly we adore stories and comedies that make fun of it's own genre and because they do, they shine even more. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun primarily focuses on the hilarious events of Nozaki trying to find inspiration for his manga whereas in Lucky Star, we just adore Konata's kawaii appearance mismatched with her love for anime/manga/games that extend to areas she should not be playing. All in all, the comedy in both series will have you laughing if not all the time, but at least once in each episode. The entire cast for both anime will also grow on you making you want for more  read more

The two sets of main characters are very similar. Chiaki is comparable to Nozaki in how they are very stern individuals only focused on one thing. For Chiaki it's music and Nozaki it's his shoujo manga. Nodame is comparable to Sakura in that they have very up-beat personalities and that they share an unrequited love for a guy who is either oblivious to their feelings or is too busy to care.
