If you enjoyed one, you'll probably enjoy the other. -Similar art -Story line of keeping identities hidden, but this time the roles are reversed -Rom com with demons -Simple but enjoyable plots And they are both all around an easy and enjoyable anime to watch :)

Loser highschooler gets supernatural girlfriend which cascades into every girl around him thinking he's awesome, nonsensical comedic moments ensue. To Love Ru is themed more consistently on a new alien every episode and has a lot more ecchi to the point it gets tiring but still has enough chaos to be entertaining while Jitsu Watashi quickly mixes fantasy and sci fi themes with a bit less crazy things but the ecchi is much more controlled. Both female leads are sort of air heads, main difference is Lala invents more things to get the gang in trouble (and again, ecchi is more common with her show)  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  read more

Both are romantic comedy about vampires (and other creatures in "jitsu wa") set in school. The protagonist learns a secret about true identity of a certain girl and then all kinds of crazy stuff happens. Both anime have romance but in Karin romantic relationships is more complete and satisfying

Jitsu wa Watashi wa and Nogizaka Haruka No Himitsu are each enjoyable and humorous romantic comedies and both focus on the male mc discovering the secret of his female interest and being asked to keep it lest she suffer emotionally because of the aforementioned secret and forms off of that basis for their friendships, eventually blooming into romance. Nogizaka focuses on her being an otaku, while Jitsu wa Watashi wa focuses more on her being a vampire.

Both series have the protag trying to keep a secret for the main heroine or else something bad will happen. Also as time goes on both protags have to keep more peoples secrets as the series progresses. Jitsu wa Watashi wa has vampires and aliens,while Seto no Hanayome has mermaids. Overall both are really good series, and I think you will enjoy both.

The main character from both series can't tell a lie. They fell in love with someone but finds out a secret about them. Both have comedy and romance.

Similarities: - Male main character keeping secret for female lead - Relationship between the two keeping the secret - Male lead has a 'weakness' [Gynophobia vs. Inability to keep secrets] - Romantic comedy Differences: - Jitsu wa is fantasy/supernatural whereas mayo chiki isn't - Mc is keeping secret willingly in Jitsu wa

Both series are hilarious and both series revolve around a male high school student who is the "straight man" of the series and is surrounded by a bunch of weird characters.

Both have - weird intriguing premise - likeable characters - similar feel - both relaxing and fun - better then they seem to be

Romance anime involving mysterious girls with mysterious powers in school, and only the MC (and a few others) know about it 
report Recommended by albertbrown
Both are lighthearted romcoms with a supernatural aspect, and feature a misunderstanding in which the lead girl doesn't realize the MC likes her, and instead thinks he likes one of their mutual friends. Jitsu wa has some more harem-inspired elements and a bit of ecchi comedy, while KOR is mostly clean and follows a more straightforward love triangle setup. 
report Recommended by FinalReality56
Both shows feature on a somewhat meek male lead who falls for a not-so-human girl, which leads to even more unusual foolery starting to surround him. While both have some light fanservice, Jitsu wa has some more deliberately raunchy humor and is based around the dynamic between the Asahi and Yoko (including how they seem to keep dodging ending up together), while NnS is a coming of age story that focuses on Narue and Kazuto going through their first relationship together

A high school anime harem with a lot of humor and slapstick. Very fast paced and focuses more on jokes and character than romance.

Both series have the same high school romantic comedy setting just one has monster girls.

High school romance. Though, horimiya doesn't have any vampires involved

Both series features a male MC dealing with a special girl in a school setting. Despite being an every-season-harem-show it has its funny moments. 
report Recommended by Blancchet
Human boy and non-human girl relationship, lots of zany supporting characters, slapstick comedy, school life, and hilarious situations. If you like one you should definitely like the other. 
report Recommended by TFO1013
A harem anime with multiple girls of fantasy origins, including supernatural (ghosts/vampires/werewolves/etc) and alien girls all associating with each other. Both are very good and worth the watch. 
report Recommended by pacbro
Both are about a "normal" main character being surrounded by a bunch of supernatural beings. The MC has to keep a secret about the powers of others and hilarious shenanigans ensue  
report Recommended by alohaleia
Parody humour, school setting, element of supernatural and feeling of harem without actual harem in the list of genres. Also some characters are similar: Shikimi=Shiho, Guri=Youko/Akane, Yuzu=Nagisa etc. Both are not really deep (though both have some sad and not that bright scenes) and good for enjoyment.

Isshuukan Friends and Jitsu wa Watashi wa both are series of comedy, where the protagonist discovers the secret of a girl, that makes her isolate herself from others. He will become your friend, and will protect your secret, and will support you so that you may one day be well with yourself. In addition there is the risk of their friendship being frustrated, in IF is the amnesia and in Jitsu is that the girl is a vampire. Together they will become closer as they go through the chapters, with the help of their friends.

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.  
report Recommended by charlotti-chan
Pretty funny show with monster girls as MC and a Hero that used to be kind of a loner both after an unexpected turn of events he continues to get more monster girls in his life. Biggest difference is Jitsu wa Watashi wa is more a Rom-Com while Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka has more action in it.

The same situation where it involves the MC guy meeting with very mysterious girls with special abilities, except in Yamada-kun to 7 Majo the guy is an ass, while in JW the guy is more of a wuss.
