-Both are about two leads who supposedly despise each other yet are forced to feign an intimate relationship with each other due to the nature of their situation -Both have a similar artstyle which almost singlehandedly distinguishes them from the myriad of competition in the genre -Both feature similar characters and supporting characters

Both comedic. Both guys are your typical quiet ones, but Kazuya in Rent a girlfriend is a complete degenerate (part of the fun). 
report Recommended by Gusburg
these shows not only have similar plots (MC with multiple love interests) but close animation, too, with almost the same color selection and OPs/EDs - the typical romcom-ish ones. the main difference is in the MCs, not quite alike.

One is about having sex with your stepsisters, and the other is about a simp masturbating to his rental girlfriend in his smelly apartment. Why am I entertained? You may think the obvious answer would be "you're a degenerate who has weird fetishes". Wrong. Guess again. These plots are so UTTERLY INSANE that you cannot help but be entertained. Even more so in the case of Rent a Girlfriend, where the main character is so hopeless you can't help but laugh and be enthralled by his hopeless romance.

The same Female character plot where the girl can be dismiss as a Ho, when they're not and the guys that they have a relationship with, where at one point can be mistaken as a short term but turns out to be long term.

+1 at Gamers being similar to Kanojo, Okarishimasu. Has a "normal" mc, a harem, heaps of misunderstandings, and a romance plot that can make you spin if you try to keep up with it. 
report Recommended by anikurikokua
Both are romances involving college students. Kanojo, Okarishimasu is more of a harem, slowly introducing multiple love interests, whereas in Golden Time, who the protagonist will end up with is clear from the start.

Both have a harem situation with similar sets of characters with random moments of fanservice. 
report Recommended by Bloomberry
They're both romantic dramas with lots of pretty girls :) I'd call Rent-a-Girlfriend a great anime to start the next decade of anime off with, as its style and visuals are a breath of fresh air for long-time anime watchers. 
report Recommended by lesbiankyoko
The stories are different but yet these 2 focuses on having girlfriends/wife, and both revolve around romantic comedy between the couples. In tonikaku kawaii, the couples are real but in kanojo okarishimasu the couples are fake.

Sad unpopular boy gets pushed around by girls 
report Recommended by Zytoep
While both animes are polar opposites in which one of them is dating for real but have to keep it secret and the other one is fake dating but have to pretend that they're a real couple, the humor is similar because both involve having to hide the secret and a lot of spicy shit happens when the secret gets leaked to the wrong people. Both series have some girl who blackmails the MC and the MC must do her bidding.

Main protagonists are college-aged, the male lead is a "loser" with close ties to his grandmother, the female lead is a beautiful out-of-reach woman who lives in the same building, Ruka and Yagami are similar, and Sumi and Asuna are similar.

Both series share similar types of humor, which spans from a light-hearted laugh to full-on degeneracy. If you found Yahari Ore no... hilarious, you'll likely enjoy Kanojo, Okarishimasu. 
report Recommended by M_Demarco
Both main characters have a harem and they both have funny moments- the key difference I think is in gotoubun, uesugi doesnt show feelings for a specific one and pursues her, while in kanojo, kazuya is pursuing a specific one of the girls.

The two anime are light and fun romance anime that have a similar setup to the story. They both have a female MC that heavily contributes to the character development of the male MC. The male MC in both anime start off as rock-bottom type characters like they're just really rock-bottom, low quality and are starting out from scratch. Rent-a-Girlfriend is more on the comedic and complicated relationship approach to the story while Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki is more on the gaming and life philosophy in which games and life are being correlated. Both anime can give out lessons that can help your social life. Really  read more

The main character have the same kind of obsession they Both "don't" attract girl the girls also are also kinda similar I. guess and the anime let you the same feeling at the end I want more of this.(The second season of sauna is better than the first one for me and reveal the true potential of the show)

Both are romance and have more than 1 girl characters like the main boy. (Harem) And great art style.

Both animes have a tsundere relationship as its main plot. The MC finds himself accidentally meeting someone that becomes reluctant to emotions towards the MC. As the story progresses they start to like the MC and let their true feelings show.

Both harem, fan service like anime, with similar art styles!

Both have a similar story and comedy

in both anime > couple Both are sweet romance anime > care about others secrets > romance overlord 
report Recommended by asinime
Similar anti-hero protagonists who lives pretty much entirely revolve around losing their virginity. Another group cast of girls with varied personalities who fall into the life of the protagonist some way or another. Similar comedic tone with lots of jokes made at the expense of the protagonist and characters playing around with the feelings of others.

After a romantical failure, the protagonist starts dating a random person (in Koi to Uso, it is chosen by the system, whereas in Kanojo, Okarishimasu, is by paying). Eventually, the main character and his fake girlfriend start developing feelings towards each other.

School days is an often maligned visual novel adaptation, however if your looking for a harem anime that mixes up the genre troops and one with a truly un-redeemable, extreme protagonist, then schools days is a much better candidate to Rent-a-Girlfriend.

Shuffle is an often passed over harem anime from the mid-2000s. Like Rent-a-girlfriend, it challenges the realities of harem animes ( along with questioning the likes of high-school and fantasy elements in anime ) but unlike rent-a-girlfriend, the full length run allows the show time to breath and gives each of its stories and characters time to be fleshed out, ultimately providing a much better experience and one of the best harems in the genre. If you liked Rent-a-girlfriends 'realistic' depiction of a harem and flawed protagonist, then shuffle should prove even more enjoyable.

They both explore romance from an unconventional, perhaps uncomfortable premise (Kuzu no Honkai: relationship with someone whilst pretending they're someone else, Kanojo, Okarishimasu: relationship with a fake girlfriend) 
report Recommended by pixruru
Both needed to pretend they are in a relationship. 
report Recommended by THE_kruger
Harem show with a pretty obvious main girl and a looser, pervert, virgin MC that gets increasingly dependable while the plot progresses. Especially following seasons will focus more on that growth though so at this point Kazuya is still much worse than even Keitarou in episode 1. 
report Recommended by shezario
In both anime, the main character resorts to the service of a rental girlfriend/video girl to help him get over a heartbreak. But he eventually develops feelings for the girl, and has to find the key to this impossible love... Video Girl Ai has less comedy, has more fantasy elements, and the main character is less of a total failure / cringy creature. 
report Recommended by JohnnyCamel
Both about a male character who sucks with girls, who eventually gets surrounded by lots of females and becomes a harem. The same type of vibe anime, light-hearted, warm, harem, school life funny anime.  
report Recommended by iNinjeek
Both are about adults that seem to be unexperienced with girls... and are rather pathetic. 
report Recommended by yonatan_
This is probably a weird recommendation, but I do think if you really like the characters of Rent-A-Girlfriend, you'd probably find something similar in Re:Zero. Both Kazuya and Subaru are complete simps at the start of the series. They're made to be pathetic, annoying, helpless, and they both reflect a lot of boys around that age. If you like Kazuya because you can tell he's not a bad guy deep down and are cheering for him to get better, I think you can find something really similar with Subaru. Alternatively, maybe you like Rent-A-Girlfriend because of its plethora of cute girls. And Re:Zero definitely has a  read more
