Though nowhere near as good, Sekaiichi follows Junjou's style of storytelling by showing three couples all somewhat related to each other. It's more of the same, but the relationships are far less varied which is disappointing in my opinion. However, if you like one you may like the other just as much.
Both animes are about boy love. They both show 3 couples. In both animes, in all the couples, one of them works in the literature business. Sometimes it's an author, others are editors and others are literature professors.
Both look at three different couples, and their relationships as they progress. They are both Yaoi, if you didn't know already, and are really cute! They are by the same author (Shungiku Nakamaru), so the art is basically the same. I suppose Skaiichi Hatsukoi can be considered as a bit of a spin off of Junjou Romantics, because the storylines are similar, again, with them following three different couples. Both are really good, and if you liked one, you will definitely like the other!
Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and other anime can be seen here: http://www.myanimelinks.com/full-anime-list/
Junjou Romantica is similar to Sekaiichi Hatsukoi because both animes deal with same sex couples whom often misunderstand each other that lead to funny situations, both these animes deal with younger men with older more experienced men i.e. college students with teachers/authors so the characters have the same reactions in both of them, similar situations in the same environments that makes you think you have already seen a scene like this when watching one anime and then the other but no matter what anime you watch, the differences make one as enjoyable to watch as the other without it being too repetitive. Also, the comedy cuteness of each relationship in Junjou Romantica gives the viewer the exact same feelings when watching Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, it makes you either lol or go "awww" ^^. JR made me want all the couples to get together, to get over their misunderstandings and whilst SH has a bit more drama to it (the main couple has a shared past they need to get over whilst JR main couple have just met) it made me feel the same way. JR isnt creepy at all to watch, with only hints of love/lust between couples and the art of the men are has handsome and appealing to the eye in JR as they are in SH, so I strongly recommend that if you have watched one of these series and enjoyed it, you will definitely enjoy watching the other.  read more
They both have similar plots but Junjou Romantica is about 2 peope living together, and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is about 2 people who live next to each other and work together, but in Junjou Romantica, Usagi works as a Writer and Misaki has no job. But they are both filled with the "What going to happen next" feeling as you watch
•both are of the yaoi genre, and are both done by the same producer/company/author/art style.. etc
•both animes focus on 1 pairing, and then broadens the area and focuses on the couples around them in either the workplace, old friends, acquaintances, family members etc
•animes have the sex knowingly shown or just hints that it will lead to it, but in JR its pretty more graphic imo SH has toned the sex to a minimum and not shown as much leading up to it.
•both animes have different feels about them, one may seem more realistic/legit than the other, and the other a whole fantasy like it will never happen.
•both contain the malexmale romantic vibe and its very sweet, between the 3 couples shown in each anime, showing different love problems and history's
•they are both very much enjoyable to watch if you are a yaoifangirl :P, but for person who just likes romances and has an open mind about yaoi/yuri in general, you might find both of these anime enjoyable aswell.
Both animes are shounen-ai and from the same creators with the same art. The series follows multiple couples like Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and the characters are very similar. Also characters from Sekaiichi Hatsukoi make cameo appearances in Junjou Romantica. ;) If you enjoyed this series then Junjou Romantica should also be good for you.
They are written by the same person. They are both are BL anime, so if you're not into that, don't watch them. JR and SH both involve writers/editors. I enjoyed watching both of them, and would recommend them.
same author, similar drawing and story style, similar atmosphere/feeling
like MayilaWong I like SH better - because of the more natural seeming relationships (also more originality), the environment is mostly a manga publishing house and you can see the connections between the characters/couples
These two anime shows have similar art work. The coloring, the morale/plot/story is kinda similar but it has its differences. And if you look carefully, you may even find like a connection through the names and posters and stuff like that. And they both have like three different couples' stories about how they met and fell in love and how they overcome hardships that go their way, if they overcome them.
Both involve multiple stories where all the characters know each other
Both involve the yaoi genre
Both involve characters refusing to admit that their in love
Both involve characters living together/next to each other
Both series are adaptations from Shungiku Nakamura, they are both yaoi, and the art is similar as well. There are also 3 story lines, and there is a connection to books in both series. if you liked Junjou then you're going to love this one just as much, because you'll be laughing and crying with this too.
Love! Love! Love everywhere! It's not easily found though. The protagonists always try their best in order to gain the partner's affection but are easily turned down. Though, it changes a bit throughout but is still present in a way. Moving on, both the lead protagonists are associated with manga-making or in other words manga industry. Good laughs ,good drama ,good ost ...a good watch!
First of all, Junjou Romantica and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi were created by the same person. They're both
shounen-ai and follow 3 different main couples. They both have the same cutesy art style. Junjou Romantica's and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi's characters even come across each other too. You might see a Sekaiichi Hatsukoi character appear in Junjou Romantica. The two are both great and I love them.
*created by the same people (the manga was written by the same author)
*both have their characters involved in either the creation or selling of manga
*some of the characters from Junjou Romantica are in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi (and vice versa)
*both yaoi and comedic
If you love yaoi...this is perfect! These are similar because the artwork and the idea of featuring 3 couples in the 1 anime, but each couple has their own story. In these anime, you can see how these shows intertwine with each other which is a cool factor to both of these shows.
Both of these anime are BL which I love although I enjoyed Sekarrchi Hatsukoi a little better than Junjou Romantica. For those who would like to know, both of these are created from two different manga that the same author wrote.
Both show love boys ;)
1 boy has similar character as Shindou (Gravitation) and 2 boy is a writer, he writes romance book as Yuki Eiri (Gravitation).
If you pleased from observing Gravitation, I'm sure that you will be charmed "Junjo Romantica".
Both feature smoking writers who are distant from their families, characters who are afraid to love again, and assertive ukes. After seeing Gravitation, all other BL falls short, but Junjo Romantica is so cute, I think any Gravi fan would enjoy it.
Both are shounen-ai and extremly amazing<3 Both have romance novelists(Usagi and Yuki) not to mention that the voice of Yuki is the same voice as Miyagi from Junjou Terrorist. Although Junjou is a bit more explicit than Gravitation but if you love Gravitation, you'll definitely love Junjou Romantica!
How to deal with falling in love with a cold hearted novelist? Both main characters in these anime struggle with that very question. I think there are a lot of similarities between these shows when it comes to the plot, the characters and maybe even the kind of humor they use.
These two comical, romantic, shounen-ai series are definitely worth watching if you're looking for a lighthearted, romantic story with a nice balance between the dramatic and comical moments.
If you're a shounen-ai fan, these are both a must to watch.
Usami's and Misaki's relationship reminds me very much about Soubi's and Ritsuka's: The loving, protecting seme who's unconditionally in love with the uke and have no problem with telling him so, and the denying uke who'd rather throw himself in front of a bus than admitting that he actually loves the seme. They also have the same age gap of about 10 years between them. (Though it doesn't seem as much in Junjo Romantica as in Loveless, where Soubi almost seems to be a pedophile.)
Both animes are really sweet and contain boy love. Loveless has a more detailed plot with issues going on but is just as good as Junjou Romantica with its deep characters.
I loved them both and if your a fan of Yaoi/ Shonen ai, I reccomend them.
They are both very similar when it comes in terms of the yaoi aspects. Only thing is Junjou Romantica has more graphical stuff in comparison with Loveless which is more to the plot, dark teams(Parent abuse, depression, etc.) and maintains it's cuteness. Either way if you liked loveless or junjou romantica you will like the other!
These are similar in a way that they show BL (boys love) and also portray the uke with the "cute" type of personality. In both animes there is a specific scene that happens, which the ukes are both shocked by due to the semes' action (it will make your BL fangirl heart go wild~!). Anyways, Junjou Romantica is highly recommended to watch (if not already seen) if you are currently enjoying Love Stage!! because they both possess elements of romance and comedy that relate.
Both are very good Shonen Ai series that focus more on plot than sexualization of characters. People who don't like Yaoi or Shounen Ai may enjoy both Animes as they aren't too explicit, and just as enjoyable as any good romance series. Honestly, if this was not Shounen Ai, and the couples in each series where a girl and a boy. I would enjoy each series just the same! :3
Main characters are both naive college students, and can become very likeable as you watch each series. Both series also have supporting characters with their own relationships. This makes the series pacing more enjoyable as the focus isn't constantly on the main character and love interest.
Animation quality is also very good for both, and opening and ending songs are very catchy. Cute animal mascots are also used in both.
Both also involve the characters working in a specific industry (Literature for Junjou Romantica, and Enterainment for Love Stage!!) and that industry being a substantial part of each plot.
Both Animes are pretty short, but those who enjoyed the Anime can follow the stories further in the mangas, as they are both quite long and still ongoing (as of January, 2015)
The both series are filled with the worries and insecurity of the uke characters. Whether they are really loved or are just being played with is the main and most important question. The answer is easy to tell and after quite alot of hardships the ending is clear. In both Junjo Romantica and Papa to Kiss in the Dark the characters (no matter what happens) always end up together, so it's the same old happy ending. But I guess it's better off this way!
Both yaoi with brilliant animation. Focuses on two sets of lovers, similar to Junjou's three. Similar soundtrack and sense of comedy (intimate moment right before adorable awkwardness or something/someone interrupts).
Shounen-ai. BoyxBoy. The stuff, you know.
But that's not the only way the two anime are similiar.
They're handling a pairing (well, Junjo Romantica handles 3 pairings, but I'm talking baout the MAIN pairing) with a huge age different.
Also, they have a lot of comedy elements and contain a lot of chibis/SDs.
Both centered on a same-sex relation where the seme is bigger in age than the uke and initially acts as guardian towards him.
Produced by the same studio, differences can be seen in the fact that Super Lovers focuses on a sole couple instead of Junjou Romantica, that packs in a season 3 different love stories.
Enjoyable and funny, they both mix romantic parts and, sometimes, even dramatic tones to a lighthearted comedy that makes both series enjoyable.
-Very similar art style
-Main characters age has a big difference
-Both have a tsundere male main character
-Both have somewhat a work atmosphere
-The characters parents have past so they both live with someone famous
The art style is similar and the pure love element is similar. The plot is completely different but I find the character personalities are somewhat the same except switched with the main mc's. Misaki is similar to Haru whereas Usagi san is similar to Ren.
1. KSB is a mixture of J.E. and J.R. but mostly J.E. (J.E. because of the Senpai-Kohai relationship and the similarities between seme and uke; J.R. because of the fact that both uke used to be straight and there is a great involvement of the family element.)
2. The stories are well-done, not forced, and funny.
They share the same genre and center in the romance between the main characters. Both have really funny and cute stories.
Also they are from the same studio so they have absolutely the same artwork and roughly the same design of the characters.
Both shows have a strong homosexual streak through them, with interesting, lively characters. Antique is more based on cakes and dramatic plot whilst Junjou focuses more on it's characters and the whole "Am I gay?" thing. If you like Ono from Antique, you may like Junjou a lot. That being said, if you like Junjou, you may like Ono!
These are targeted towards a western, mature, female audience because of their shounen-ai content that will cause women to squirm, giggle, and gross-out in just one episode. Curiosity is the leading use of the storyline for the viewers as they watch a eloquent group of unrealistically handsome and sexually confused men.
Close the Last Door and Junjou Romantica tread the same ground: both are romantic yaoi pieces that play the seme/uke dynamics for all they are worth. Comedy abounds as rocky relationships and love triangles take over the plot. Fans of one are extremely likely to enjoy the other.
While Junjou Romantica definitely has a more developed story, both are fairly well done and enjoyable for BL shows. Both are more modern with better looking art than the average BL - as opposed to dated looking. Lastly, both capture the angst, turmoil and most importantly humor that makes BL so fun while steering clear of being melodramatic or overly theatrical.
OMG, can't help to stop fangirling my self. Yuuri from Kyou Kara Maou has same voice actor and attitude like Misaki from Junjou Romantica. and Wolfram really looks like Shinobu. both of them are Shounen-Ai, but Junjou is more extreme. makes you laugh in every episodes.
BLBLBLBLBLBLBLBLBL I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS. It always keeps you on your toes and it just...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think there is a manga for this and also another one which describes another couple involved. Both are manga, however. Just to clear things up- there is a manga for Hitorijime My Hero AND a manga for Hitorijime My Boyfriend. Hitorijime My Boyfriend, however, does not have its own anime. Believe I have searched. If you do find it then please tell me.
Im assuming you like 'boys love' anime so if you do, this is for you! NO.6 has a more serious tone, starting of with a sci-fi / future dystopian vibe but as the show goes on you get to see more of the main characters relationship grow.
I like that there are perfectly placed plot twists and humor. I recommend this to everyone!
Both Shounen Ai (plus a bit yaoi - though it's just "knowing what'll happen or what's happening, than actually seeing it).
Both amazing cute couples.
Tight Rope "only" has one couple, since it is just a 2ep. OVA, and it is more about protecting each other, than the "daily life" problems in Junjou Romantica.
Both are amazing!
Both have to do with at least 1 character's first relationships
Although one is heterosexual and the other is homosexual, there are shounen-ai hints in both, more in Junjou.
Both seem to be romantic comedies.
Believe it or not both have censored versions (more in 30-sai)
Junjou is aimed towards homosexual men while 30-sai is aimed towards heterosexual men
Gakuen Heaven and Junjou Romantica are yaoi romances set in a school environment. Plenty of humour and fluff dominate both titles. Gakuen Heaven, for all its innuendo, is considerably tame compared to more adult content in Junjou Romantica and both titles offer enough eye candy and comedy to share a common fanbase.
The genre of romance between the two aren't the same at all. However, in both, the main character (in the case of Junjou though the more rational one in each of the couples, I suppose) has to deal with irrational or uncontrollable people and their significant other. Artwork is almost similar, mostly feeling wise. Comedy all around.
Both these stories are about wealthy semes and college students who are the ukes. Both semes are heirs to a wealthy family but renounce their heir and are wealthy off their own means. In Junjou the seme is a famous author and in Yebisu the seme owns his own design company. The semes love their uke from the beginning but the ukes are still trying to figure out his feelings. Oh by the way these are both yaoi.
This anime is a boyxboy,very good,dramatic,nice art style,romantic.
This anime is a forbiden love story when Ranmaru justgot married on a lavish cruise ship, but things aren't as they seem. The marriage is just for the appearances, and he ends up getting drunk and spending the night not with his bride but with the ship's captain.
Both anime has cute male protagonist and the charactors seems to be similar like Hyuuga from 07 Ghost and Miyagi are cheerful, Haruse has a similar appearance to Nowaki (protective personality) and Konatsu and Aya-tan are as well disguised in the anime Junjou Romantica.
Both anime are very entertaining and for 07 Ghost fans that want to see some romance can watch Junjou Romantica ^^
I know what you're thinking, "How is a Yuri similar to a Yaoi?" They both have basically the same storyline. While one is about boys falling in love and ones about girls falling in love. Both anime go around from couple to couple showing their stories. There's also a main couple that you see a lot of and brings the other characters together. In my opinion if you're ok with the Yuri/Yaoi thing then you'll like both these anime.
