Kaichou wa Maid - Sama! is similar to Special A because of two main couples in each of these anime. In Kaichou wa Maid - Sama! There is Ayuzawa, Misaki and Usui, Takumi. Ayuzawa is very strongminded, and always tries to protect the girls in her school which was recently made co-ed. She tends to frighten the boys at her school with her quick temper, and masculine adrenaline. However, her character changes when she is discovered by a classmate Usui, that she works as a cute little maid in a cafe shop, where it mainly entertains male genders. Usui promises to keep her  read more

Its kind of amazing how similar the female leads in these shows are. Both are hardworking A+ students that tend to take on more work than they can handle. Both have difficult home lives mostly due to their fathers, and both have secret sides to them that they don't want their fellow students to know about. As result of their extra extracurricular burdens, they both end up developing relationships with guys from their school they otherwise wouldn't have become close with. Maid Sama is more definitely more "shojo", while I don't think Horimiya really targets one sex over another. But regardless I really like both  read more

both show a girl with a strong sense of determination. never backing down from a challenge, and working as hard as they can. they both also have a strong and cool male love interest that falls for them because of their determination and willingness to push them selves far beyond their limits. which causes the main male to slow them down so they can rest and helps them so they don't over do it

Akatsuki no Yona's Hak aids the heroine, Yona, in times of need while teasingly liking her by himself. Usui from Kaichou wa Maid-sama has basically the same character as Hak, though he shows less self restraint because he is not Misaki's bodyguard. I get the same feeling from both Hak and Usui and would recommend you to watch both series if you are into good character design

In the series the male and female main characters share the same personalities. While Kaze no Stigma's main story is mostly based on magic and Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!

It may sound like a long shot , but these animes are really similar. In both of them the main focus is romance, strong female lead , and charming/sexy/ dangerous male one. The differences is that in Kaichou wa Maid -sama we have one super cool guy and here we have four. Don't worry though we still have happy ending, only with the difference that in Kaichou wa maid sama it's clear with who , and in Hana yori Dango it takes some time :) But I am 100 % sure that if you liked Kaichou wa Maid sama you will like Hana Yori Dango  read more

Both series has a girl in the center of attention with more than one guy interested. Both girls are also very athletic. Besides that, Okayashi actually reminds me a bit about Usui in his way of always silently helping the girl, but also by teasing/toying with her a bit at the same time.

Usui from Maid-Sama! and Io from Acchi Kocchi have the same VA and are very similar characters, being people who are almost excessively laid-back, good at almost anything, both kind and a tiny bit evil.

Similarities: Both involve female leads who were elected to be student council presidents in such difficult situations. Both involves male leads who serve as their protector and with romantic feelings on the sides. Both female leads are willing to deal with problems that involves the welfare of the students. Both female leads are not to be trifle with. Dissimilarities: In Kaicho Wa Maidsama: - The female lead is reluctant to be near the male lead -The female lead is mainly concern about the welfare of the female students (at first), since their school is once an all boys high school turned coed. -The student council already has its own VP, Secretary, treasures and other  read more

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.

I don't know why someone hasn't recommended this one yet. The anime plot, characters, and just basically everything is the exact same! They do have different story lines, but the jerk guy likes the girl, the girl acts all tough and doesnt show anything. Same romance, same comedy, both very good and enjoyable! Only difference is that maid-sama is the older version of kodomo no omocha (kodocha) and kodomo is also an older series. Kodomo no omocha is based on younger characters and ages, but the romance is actually more deep in it as well as the story then it is in kaichou wa maid-sama.  read more

These slice of life series resemble each other surprisingly much. While the plots and settings are different, the main characters are definitely carved from the same tree. Even though other one is a young boy and other a high school girl, they have the same ethics and attitude towards working and getting things done. They have similar looks and personalities and they both obviously wear a maid outfit - much to their own discomfort. They both have that one person next to them (in Kaichou it is Usui and in Shounen Maid it's uncle Madoka) that constantly teases but also cares very much about them.  read more

The Kaichou wa maid sama part is less appearent. Both mains are tomboys who are suddenly found attractive by all the boys and they are both disgusted by guys behaviors and try to change them.

Misaki is a very strong character--like Haruhi. She doesn't put up with any nonsense. Although she isn't quite as crazy as Haruhi, Misaki still can be tough. I would put Misaki up against any guy. XD The boy who has likes her, Usui, is really funny. He can be like Jiraiya sometimes. So if any of you like that sort of humor this will definitely appeal to you. Also if you like girls dressed up in cute maid outfits, I highly recommend this!

Male and Female main characters, and 3 friends from Kono Oto Tomare are reminiscent of the ones from Kaichou wa Maid-sama. The overall mood and feel are also very similar, especially regarding comedy / romance. Watching Kono Oto Tomare feels like watching Kaichou wa Maid-sama all over again. (Of course, each anime has lots of great stuff aside from the comedy / romance!)

Okay, if you saw and liked Mitsu x Mitsu Drops, I suggest you watch Maid-Sama!, but I would not recommend Mitsu x Mitsu Drops to anyone (so if you saw and liked Maid-Sama!, ignore this recommendation). Both have: -A focus on relationships -Romance (it's different for each) -A relationship that feels somewhat forced The difference is that in Maid-Sama, the romance feels genuine, whereas in MxMD, the romance feels forced. Also, Maid-Sama! is a funny comedy, whereas MxMD is a terrible drama.

Both anime present Tsundere type girls, strong willed and independent. ZNT is developed at a magic world while Maid-sama is in the real world. I would say Maid-sama is a little more corny but still a good anime to watch if you're into the Shojo types.

I think that these two anime have very much in common. You might ask why because ones about maids and the other is about princes.

- Both are comedy, romance shoujo in which it is very amusing to see the development of the couple. - Although the protagonists are totally different being Takumi beautiful, integral, talented and loved by all the girls and Takeo being popular with the boys but not with the girls because of his appearance, not very intelligent, impulsive and always puts the happiness of others above his, both protagonists always try to do everything for his beloved girl.

Maids, and a really attractive guy. For some reason, both of these anime contain someone who has the ability to attract females in his radius for reasons I do not know of, neither are they specified. Alice or Alice has onii-chan to care about, who indeed cares for all around him. Maid-sama has Usui who is only out for one girl but has a following regardless. They're both just there for fun, though I'd look to Maid-sama for an actually pretty good story compared to a cute fun time-efficient AorA.

Crossdresser. There is no real similarity in the story, they just both feature crossdressers that you may find yourself interested in. What I will say however is that it is possible to see the link between characters in these anime, with MCs being really hot on getting/playing with their said other that doesn't really want to be with them. It's a dangerous world out there but nothing that will make you detest the playful nature the two give. Good comedies I would suggest you watch as one of the best things in their respective themes, shoujo and crossdressing.

In both, the main character is trying to hide a secret about herself which would otherwise damage her reputation. They're both also pretty light-hearted and have similar art.

There's a very good reason why you don't want to finish an anime show in the span of a day, and it's probably the reason I stopped marathoning. When I marathoned Gurren Lagann, I ended up looking up alternatives and sequel seasons for an entire month. When I marathoned Kaichou wa Maid-sama, I began reading the manga. When I marathoned Hanasaku Iroha, well, technically I just finished, and my eyes are the spitting image of Niagara Falls. Just to give you a clue, I'm practically crying as I type this out. As for similarities, I found them similar initially when I thought about marathoned shows, but thinking  read more

Both have strong female protagonists, who have vulnerable best friends who are easily hurt and often have to be protected by their friend. Both also have irresistable male leads and are both great romance comedies, with strong addictive storylines.

I watched this two animes a couple of mounth ago.To be honest,I had a great feedback from them.Both of them have the romance theme but they are a bit different. In Kaichou,you will see that is the typical boy-girl relationship but with their ups and downs. The main reason i like this anime is because i like the personallity of Usui Takumi.He makes the anime more funny and I like how he protects the girl he loves. In Anohana(abbreviation) you can see a special relationship between a boy and a girl,who's a ghost.The ghost died when the boy was little and he was trying to save her  read more

Only two animes have brought me as close to death as Dashi koukosei no nichijou and Kaichou wa maid-sama. Basically they are both comedy shows that will almost make you laught yourself to death. So if you re a comedy lover like me, you should watch this one too. Now to the story. Danshi koukousei no nichijou revolves around what higschool boys do in their daily lives. Of course they only show the most funny or most stupid moments of a higschool boys life, but being a higschool boy myself there were some scenes i could relate to. This anime though doesn't follow a storylin, and  read more

If you enjoy Izayoi and Black Rabbit's personalities and how they interact with each other, you would love Maid-sama. Both of these anime have cool and over power main male characters and a cool main female character they love to tease and flirt with. Maid-sama is base on romance, with a lot of action to keep it interesting, while Mondaiji is fantasy magic, with Izayoi just toying around a lot with little hints of possible romance down the line.

Involves a girl hiding her life in a maid cafe. Similar them but Kaichou wa Maid-sama! has a lot more romance!

The way the main characters interact with each other, is somehow similar. The female lead characters have similarities in their personalities and tend to be quite fierce sometimes... but in a cute way ^^

Romantic shows that start off with a heroine who works hard, being modest and very strong willed, not easily mislead by attractive bishounens (until the very end of course they cannot lie to themselves as they are madly in-love with them too, mutual feelings) which from the start the (typically rich and handsome) protagonist had his eye on the heroine and persistently chased after her until the end. Of course there being a few complications and romantic rivals which actually (as usual) persuaded the main characters to FINALLY be together and confess their love, Maid-sama is a little bit more immature in comparison but  read more

First of all, both series are done by J.C. Staff. But that's not all...because they are also similar in terms of main character where despite their handsome appearances, their personality does not fit with the usual princely types. (Thank God for that) Additionally, the main girl is independent. Of course, there is also comedy, drama, and later romance blooms in both series.

Both have female characters that are boyish on the outside but are really sweet on the inside. Both are class presidents and really care about the students at the school. Both are really strong. Misaki is kind of a combination of Kyou and Tomoyo from Clannad though is more similar to Tomoyo. Tomoyo and Misaki both have a love interest who would do anything for them. Clannad is a lot more serious while Maid-sama tends to be more light-hearted but still has its serious and romantic moments.

"Bokura ga Ita" is a good love story in which both lovers admit their love and try to keep it from outside problems.

both anime adores vanilla romance instead of the cliche harem slice of life school life. while the main character tries their best to win the heroines heart in which case they might (or might not). in a way, both anime also emphasize on their heroine's settings. either way, if you wanted to watch straight romance with not much conflict in it, go for it.

The male lead in Kage kara Mamoru and the female lead in Kaichou wa Maid-sama both have secrets that they try to keep hidden. Both are comedy, romance and in a high school setting.

The overall atmosphere and pacing of Tomochan and Maid-Sama are similar! The music, sound effects, and comedic moments all feel strikingly similar! Both have romantic tension that leaves the viewer screaming for them to get together.
