Another harem style anime, with a little drama, but much more lighthearted overall. It also incorporates some interesting twists and turns in the plot, but it does not generally leave you sick to your stomach like school days does. I enjoyed both school days and shuffle, and they are both excellent anime.

As in Shuffle!, there is a wide variation of characters. The story is based on magic, similar to Shuffle!'s main plot. There is also quite a resemblance between character personalities. I also recommend Da Capo: Second Season.

Both simular in ways where Rin in (Shuffle!) & Yuuichi (Kanon) recieve alot of attention from the main female characters and have a good comedy side! 
report Recommended by FiiFO
Both are romance harem anime with a guy and five girls and both have a school setting. The main male characters are both similar as well. Shuffle! is more fantasy compared to Clannad's mostly realistic story, with the exception of one mostly supernatural arc. 
report Recommended by shadowraze
both stories involve a human boy who's surrounded by many girls of different races... in rosario, they have different types of monsters and in shuffle, they have gods, demons, demi-humans, and humans... 
report Recommended by m1zzsandra
They are both supernatural harems so they are similar in a lot of respects. The characters parallel each other and in both series, the male lead is forced by the father to marry his daughter and become the heir to a throne. Great mixtures of comedy and relationships.

Both magic,ecchi,harem animes with little violence in it. So if you like the one you I'm sure you will like the other,even though Shuffle has Drama in it.

Well there's romance in both, and even though they have a lot of differences when I was watching Shuffle! certain scenes reminded o me of Air (I won't spoil any thing) and there's a bit of supernatural in both as well.

Akane-iro ni Somaru and shuffle share many things in common there both revolved around a boy that must decide a girl from a huge harem. They are both funny, and dramatic all at the same time i guarantee if you like one you'll like the other.

More then one girl is in love with the male guy. Male ends up with the unexpected girl. Very similar, Tells each side of the girls stories. 
report Recommended by Gallient
The concept is very similar to that of this show and the animation is really similar too. In Sora there are two angels and thats about it but in shuffle there are bunches of demons and gods. Shuffle is a little more going for the romantic drama type anime while Sora no O. is going for the comedy anime.

-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs for each heroine that doesn't diverge from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)

Rosario + Vampire is similar to Shuffle! because of its Harem and Drama. While shuffle is twisted & heart warming, Rosario seems to be only heart warming when we are talking about the drama of the story. And threw it all they are similar in the HAREMNESS

report Recommended by Buria
These two anime are pretty similar. If you watch the two, I'm sure you'll make the connection. For starters, they both somehow involve demons and goddesses and are both romantic. 
report Recommended by Em_Leingod
Another harem style anime, with similar (but vastly improved) humor, and much greater sentimentality with a whole lot less predictability. Basically a huge upgrade, watch Love Hina first, then move on to Shuffle! 
report Recommended by Combo
shuffle its a Comedy, Drama, Ecchi, Harem, Psychological, Romance, School Life, Science Fiction, Seinen, Supernatural, Tragedy but it is very similar only difference is that shuffle is more epic than this anime i reccomend that you watch shuffle very good anime 
report Recommended by Anime_number-1
they have a very similar concept at the start of being a little sexy and then later becomes very serious

These 2 shows are very similar and i couldn't believe i didn't see it as a recommendation. One guy surrounded by crazy girls.....trust me there similar.

Tokimeki and Shuffle are hilarious harems where there are similiar characters in each show. Both have a shy girl, a shool idol, and a funky outgoing chick. i guarantee that if you watch one show you will LOVE the other. ;) 
report Recommended by God_of_Conquest
Both have dark story-lines and twist's. conflict between the main characters Super-natural themes drama dramatic build up entertaining  
report Recommended by Datacat
Although the concept is different. The two Anime shows have oblivious guys (Kakeru and Rin) with their childhood friend (Yuka and Kaede) who have a crush and obsession for the main characters. Pretty much harem, jealousy, other important girl likes him, one dude part of the group, Gods, Demons, and supernatural. Difference is 11eyes is horror show trying to fight for survival while Shuffle is a romance harem story with drama. 
report Recommended by AzzurroKurai97X
Both Animes have a strong cast of characters. Most notably the main characters who actually have personalities which is not common for many visual novel adaptations. Overall feel is the same as well, with the show having at least one episode dedicated to each girl. This leads to the ending being up in the air for the most part as each girl has had about equal screen time.  
report Recommended by DontEatRawHagis
Romance, drama, school setting, some kind of love triangle, loli, hair growth(?) and were adapted from VNs. KimiNozo is more dramatic and realistic, while Shuffle is comic, magical and harem-like. 
report Recommended by Frezlaj
While most of parts of the anime are upbeat and fun, there is also a dark side to it. The characters will tell truth about themselves and one of the cute bishojo in the stories will show a dark side of themselves. 
report Recommended by lutyo4life
There are a bunch of girls that are really hot. A main guy who gets all the girls to fall in love with him. If you don't like a super annoying girl that you just want to shut up dont watch the zero show. But still the moments in both are hilarious and serious. 
report Recommended by God_of_Conquest
The main protagonist is loved by the girls around him. In both, the girls are extremely beautiful and are unique in a way and seem awfully appealing. In Kampfer, the boy has special powers unlike the boy in Shuffle.  
report Recommended by AznBaka
Both animes follow a harem theme and surprisingly a very nice plot, Shuffle! has an amazing ending and definitely got hit in the face by the 'feels train'. Moreover, when Kanokon ended I ended up with the 'anime hangover' so both are very nice animes and would definitely recommend them! 
report Recommended by Olaternatum
I would recommend this anime final approach if you liked shuffle because the main male characters are very similar in the following ways. 1. Hard headed 2. None Understanding 3. Hurts others around by accident or on purposes 4. Finally, they still gets the girls even though they are stupid and very inconsiderate of others feelings  
report Recommended by requiem234
Similarities: -Gods and Demons exist -Demon princess in love with MC, and both are harem's -overall very similar type of anime, if you like one you'll most likely like the other 
report Recommended by no_vape_no_life
Both Shuffle and Hundred are supernatural school based harem animes. Shuffle actually has different races and some (the gods and demons) have magic built up in their bodies, while Hundred just has people optimized to use the hundred weapons (each one is unique to that character). Both main characters don't really know which girl they want to choose from the beginning.  
report Recommended by AobaSuzukaze
Both anime are extremely well done harems. DxD and Shuffle both balance plot and harem aspects really well. The size of the main character group is about the same or equal. Both shows have beings who can use supernatural powers without everyone needing weapons; many characters have sacred gears in DxD, but not everyone and even so, they're more like relics than weapons. Both shows have an amazing cast of females and a unique complimentary protagonist; they're not dull and they fend for themselves a bit. Both harems have a main love interest as the story progresses. 
report Recommended by AobaSuzukaze
Both Male protagonists are forced into relations with multiple girls. Each character has a secret that they would rather not share with others. Both stories are set around school life and how each character builds deeper friendships with one another. Both series share Comedy, Drama, Romance, Ecchi, and Harem genre elements.

Both have to do with highschool students. in shuffle and boys over flowers/hana yori dango, the main charcter's affection goes back and forth betweena few people. in shuffle its the boy who can't choose which girl, but in boys over flowers/hana yori dango its the girl who can't choose.

These anime both have a sudden girlfriend appearances in them. In shuffle it is them wanting to marry the male lead when in girls bravo they want to date him. Girls bravo has a lot more fan serve in it than shuffle. Both also have magic. In girls bravo that magic is mostly black magic though when in shuffle it is not. Both are harem anime. They are both funny a lot of the time.

Both series have a demon and angel worlds(god world in shuffle), both have harem in them, altough shuffle has more plot and is less ecchi then macademi wasshoi. 
report Recommended by Exold
Both series belong to a small group of harem anime that are actually good. The drama and characters (all of them in True Tears, and a sufficient number in Shuffle) feel genuine and engaging. While I have low expectations of harem series by default, these two proved to be exceptions to the rule.

Like Kaede, Haruka took care and grew up with the guy Taiko that she fell in love with, but she watches a new girl Himea steal her love of her life away. Haruka tries to impress her love by making him tons of bento lunches. Like Rin, Taiko met Himea (a vampire) during his childhood and doesn't remember her until he's a teen. Himea= Sia, Nerine, Primula..

Well magic is part of the plot in both series, but they way I see it is there's one guy surrounded by girls that love him in one way or another. Both of them have their "moments" and even though it's a bit awkward, it's funny.

Shuffle! and To Heart 2 consists of a typical harem romance set-up, where the main character is liked by a number of attractive girls, and he must choose which girl he wishes to be with or not.

Story and main character's relationships with other girls are very similar. There is about something about magic

They both are romancer based anime, usually about a gut finding a girl he likes, but there is always a problem like a promise or another girl, Shuffle is about Rin who lives with a girl name Kaede, who are child hood friends, and then some other girls come from different worlds one from the god realm and the other form the demon realm, He has to choose between them, which one to marry, he has many problems like 5 girls liking him, 2 from his school. 2 from the other worlds and 1 his childhood friend and a girl comes along who was from  read more

Shuffle is also an ecchi harem where 5 girls are in love with this same boy. In my opinion shuffle has better graphics/animation/quality than Ichigo 100% and even the storyline (but that is what i think ^^). Moreover, like Ichigo 100%, Shuffle has an unexpected ending and never gets boring Enjoy :D

shuffle + myself;yourself are anime based on high school, it was happy in the begginning, but went downhill with the happiness, and also the girls have a secret that is really bad. 
report Recommended by Gwing
They both are harem/ magical anime, for one. Also, they both are just brilliant shows. Sure, Negima may center around a magical classroom, but Shuffle expands from the classroom into showing how this magical girls interact with the world. Negima had robots, ninjas, vampires, wizards, ghosts, etc. Shuffle has angels and demons, a kind of step up. So i definately reccomend Shuffle for Negima lovers.

Soul Link is made by the same people who made Shuffle! Even though the stories are very different, I like both of them. If you wanna watch the other one, I'm gonna tell you again that the stories are VERY VERY DIFFERENT. Shuffle! is about a school-life and all the girls love the guy, I think that all of you know that gerne, Soul Link is more the action thing with weapons and the story takes place in outer space. If you still wanna watch the other one, go ahead, don't know if you will like both but I really do! =D

Both of these anime have one guy that is surrounded by beautiful girls. And have to pick one of the girl. Will they be able to find the right girl or will they hurt the girls feelings and end up being alone for the rest of their high school year. In Shuffle Rin is chosen to marry Sia (princess of gods) or Nerine (princess of demons ). However, some girls that are Rin's childhood friends love him but shy to say so. Five beautiful girls and one guy. How will Rin chose ? In _Summer  read more

Yoake mae Yori ruri Iro Na (aka crescent love) wasn't linked to another, and I thought that it was such a fantastic romance that more people should find it. Similarities perhaps between the two would be loves from other "worlds", school. And a captivating love story.

Similar concept both circle around school except instead of Gods and demons there are Aliens called DearS
