Special A and Ouran High School Host Club are both shoujo comedies that center around a somewhat special group of high school students. In Special A this group is an elite class of the best students in school while in Ouran its a "host club". Still, the characters in both groups are eerily similar; in both groups you have a perfect male (lead), a cool reserved character, a cute character and a guy who appears to be a dummy.
Also both animes (being shoujo) center around a very clueless (but strong) heroine. Both shows have a lot of silly comedy. The character designs are alike. Overall both animes have the same feel, so I think that fans of one of them will like the other.  read more
The atmosphere of Ouran High and Special A are the same with those students who enjoy themselves staying in a luxurious room and leisurely spend their days are very much similar. Though Ouran High is much more comedic than special A, still I could say that if you liked Ouran High there's a high possibility that you would also like Special A.
Both are closely similar... Hikari, a talented girl raised under a normal family, attends a prestigious and elite school. She gets to be a member of a special class of rich and bright students who goof and fool around. Ouran is just like that too...
First, both are absolutely different from their manga counterparts. Second, both involve an elite group of students, be they the best looking ones (Ouran), or the top students (Special A). Third, both are drop dead hilarious. Finally, both involve the leading member of the group (Kei and Suou) liking an extremely dense female member of the group (Hikari and Haruhi).
Speical A has the a bunch of Rich Kids doing what they do best, just like in Ouran. It also has really great characters like Ouran, but what makes this fancy is that it follows the romantic story of each character. It will make you laugh and brighten up your day when you are feeling down.
Special A and Ouran Host Club have the same general feel. Each features a group of distinct characters with slight focus on the relationships between the male and female leads. If you like the comedic adventures and exaggerated animation style of Ouran, Special A is certainly worth a try.
Well firstly, both are shoujo comedy school slice-of-life anime. both shows the dramas of each member of a special group of friends. ouran is romantic in that the club is set up to entertain women, whilst special is romance in the sense that most of the characters have their own love story and pair up. however, both have similar atmospheres. ouran's comedy is better, but special a still has it's fair share. they even end nearly the same!! many scenes reminded me of the other.
Both have a club consisting of rich, beautiful and talented students. The main girl from both series are the oddballs out as far as money is concerned. The romance situations have the main guy in love with the main girl who doesn't even take notice. The comedy is about equal, though in my opinion, I found SA more comical.
Having seen one of the two, it's impossible to see the other without being constantly reminded of the first.
well..its both about school and a special club..in OHHC it has host club..while in special a it has this special class for top7 student..i found some episode similar in some ways..like in the last episode..where tamaki is going to france while kei is going to ??(the main branch of takashima)..it is both comedy..and emotional in some episode but more on in comedy..
I believe they have some similarities in the fact that there is this "elite" group in school to which only a few are allowed. And there is this display of wealthiness from a couple of its members, it shows in the kind of activities they make. A lot of bishounen running around too, with wicked father or mother figures. I suppose these are common traits in anime that are mostly developed in school. Also the wealthiest boy , or at least the one that shines the most, is in love with a girl of humble origins who is into studying and has a strong personality.  read more
Both revolve around a prestegious group of students and most of them are extremally wealthy. They both have the same type of comedy and are both very good animes if your looking to just relax and laugh. Also I think if you like HaruhixTamaki, you'll love HikarixKei
Both are about a group of people that have gathered together.The leader of both anime likes the protagonist .They are both romantic comedies and are shoujo .There are also a similarity in characters,Tamaki from Ouran is like Tadashi from SA,Kyouya from Ouran is like Kei from SA,Haruhi from Ouran is like Jun from SA,Takeshi(Mori-Sempai) from Ouran is like Ryuu from SA.Both shows also have a pair of twins,Hikaru and Kaoru (both Boys)from Ouran and Jun and Megumi(One boy one girl) from SA.Another suprise is that both groups consists of 7 people.Also in both shows only the protagonists are not rich.So mch similarity in both shows but they both develop in different ways.Still i liked both so why wont you? read more
They are really really similar... Host club having trips and festivals together, everyone has different situations, also they are all rich family boys. Special A is really really similar to that. Both are really really funny! Also, they even have same number of people in their clubs, 7 - 7. Though, in Special A 3 of them are girls, unlike in Ouran where only 1 is a girl.
The story revloves around elite high school students. If Ouran revolves around rich characters, S.A revolves around the intelligent students. They are packed with comedy but if Ouran is more of a slice of life genre, S.A is more of a romance anime. They way how both stories end is similar.
I found the both Anime to be very similiar, both are talking about school life, each of the Anime are focusing the school life on Private Groups that the main characters take part in, While Ouran High School talks about a school of rich people and a private Host Club, Special A talks about rich people that are in the private special group of the smartest students.. xD make sure you watch them both!
They are both about a group of high school students in a 'club' of some sort. (Host Club for Ouran and selective students for Special A) The school is both for rich kids with the main character in both being female, being a commoner but still getting into the school anyway. The female main is also every smart in both of them, S.A 2nd in school and Haruhi top of grade. They also both have love problems within their group. Not to mention they are both funny with those hilarious signs.
Well, both anime are really awesome.
Both are comedy, romance, school life, shoujo..
Both have a main female char that is 'poor' but talented and goes in a special elite school/class..
Both series have a extremly good char design, both can be funny, both can be romantic.. Both have characters really good definited.~
I suggest to watch both.. believe me, both worth it! :3
Special A = Ouran High School Host Club + School Rumble
Pompous, rich and good-looking people that can do anything and everything to perfection and are clearly superior to all humans and even posses hearts of gold.... check.... Male lead in love with the totally adorable and equally dense and clueless female lead who doesn't notice his feelings even if slapped in the face with them..... check.... ^^
Ouran Host club and Special A have a similar mood going...
both deal with some high school for the rich n a normal talented
young girl that somehow gets caught up with a certain group/club
of the elite...even though they both have their slight differences...
they're both romantic comedies that are completely watchable^^
These series are EXTREMELY simillar because:
*There is one commoner among the superelite students
*They like being with each other and they are like family
*The main guy is in love with the main girl and the girls doesn't show feelings for him
*Even in Special A in the end of series they do a host club
*Endings are extremely similar becuase the main guy is taken away and everyone tries to bring him back
Well Special A is more deep and romantic than Ouran xD
They both have this setting where a normal girl goes to a prestigious school attended by rich kids, but still manages to cope and fit in. Both series have comedy and romance thrown in (though in Ouran the romance is more evident in the manga).
Both have the essence of comedy and romance, and they have a similarity of the story outline which held in school with rich and famous people. Also the similarity of some characters is a bit matched, and surely both will give laughter at the end.
Both Ouran High School Host & Special A have a student, which is the main character, who is attending an elite school & is an oddball who does not fit in well when it comes to money. Haruhi from OHSHC & Hikari from Special A are both very dense when it comes to love & they do not realize that Tamaki [OHSHC] & Kei [S.A.] love them. They also share a couple of the same episodes, [I hope I don't ruin this for you guys] including the time when the Host Club & Special A visited the main character's house. Coincidentally, the Host Club & Special A both have seven members, including Haruhi & Hikari. Both are also comedies and I enjoyed watching every episode of both series. All in all, if you have watched one of the two, I recommend you watch the other. OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB & SPECIAL A ROCK ! (:  read more
initial character design is very similar however developement more unexpected i would recomend watching ouran high first as SA goes as far as to openly spoof ouran thats how close they are please watch one if you have watched the other
If you like something funny like Ouran High School Host Club than you might as well like Speacial A!These two manga/anime are the best comedy I seen yet.They also have a little romance in them.But mostly comedy.So atch it you might find yourself laughing before you know it!!!
Special A seems like a copy of Ouran High School Host Club that is not superior to Ouran High School Host Club. But if you are still looking for a humourous anime to watch that is similar to Ouran High School Host Club, try Special A.
Special A and Ouran High School Host club are very similar in storyline. Both are Romance+ Comedy animes and the endings are very similar because in both the girl and the boy jump off something (Clock tower + Bridge). The build-up is also fairly similar as the girl is clueless that the guy(s) like her.
Both involve a group of elite rich kids who go about their daily lives. Each have more than a daily dose of comedy (chibis galore, everyone! ^^) and a little romance (Special A much more so than Ouran). All the characters are also made out to be extremely attractive, and often have moments where they are surrounded by roses (Ouran) or doilies( Special A) to promote this sort of appeal.(There's also quite a bit of squealing and fangirling among the background characters in both. 0.0) We also get to see some of the hardships of each character's past or current homelives in both. There's a lot of differences of course, but the only big differences are that 1) The main male lead is much, much smarter and moe serious than the main female lead in Special A, wheras it's reversed in Ouran. In fact, Hikari is pretty much the female version of Tamaki. ^^ and 2) There's much more drama in special A than in Ouran.
These two series are almost one in the same. Had the characters in Special A looked like the cast of Ouran I would've been fooled completely into thinking there was a season two of OHSHC. If you like Special A, there's no doubt you will love Ouran.  read more
Special A is like Ouran without the harem.
Ouran is like Special A but with better jokes.
Special A actually has some vestige of a plot if you stick with it.
Ouran KNOWS its ridiculous and by merit of that manages to be fantastic.
They are both distinctly shoujo. They are cute. They are funny. They have romances.
Both of these deal with a specific group of high school kids and strangely enough their main protagonists are both "poverish", young girls!! Many similarities, yet so many differences, but somehow they're one in the same! Fun, hilarity, and drama are packed with the complicated and interesting lives of each character. And as it always is in animes like this, almost every character is loveable in their very own special way.
Both animes take place in school where the main characters are treated specially. Both include rich and social standings, where the main heroine is middle-class. Somewhat of a reverse harem (in Special A the other main girl even dotes on the heroine). The love interests have somewhat of a love-hate relationship. The males are very protective of the girls they like. School-life, lots of comedy, gorgeous guys, and a growing romance from episode one make these anime two of my favorites.
it's set in a school, each with a kinda of "club" where the main character gets attached to...
also, the climax of the story is similar, where the "head/king" plans to go overseas for the sake of the main character.
Both shows include rich, beautiful and talented students in "elite" groups. Special A is a group of smart, talented kids from the school. Host Club is a group of handsome young men a "commoner" girl who has to pay back a debt.
In both shows the main character guy is in love with the girl, but the girl is to naive, and never notices.
Both shows are full of comedy, romance, and drama. And you will fall in love with the characters from both shows.
Shows another story of love, rich main and sides characters, and also one of them (the most pretty and intelligent) falls in love with the 1fragile but strong' main girl. In both of the stories, the girl isn't rich like the others.
They're both romance comedies with lots of interesting characters. The female main characters Haruhi - OHSHC - and Hikari - SA - are smart and successful girls. Something they share is that they're almost too thick headed to know that the boys like them. This leads, of course, to hilarious and/or embarrassing situations.
The male main characters Kei - SA - and Tamaki - OHSHC - are both rich, handsome, intelligent and they share the same air of confidence.
These anime are really funny and are worth checking out!
Same atmosfeer, same kind of elite group, same kind of feeling.
Both shoujo, romance, comedy. If u love one of them you will definitly love the other. I personally loved S.A. more due the fact dat haruhi isn't 'being a girl' all the time (what I really don't like about it...) and the fact that I also liked Kaoru too end with her :P
Also Special A is more romance than ouran high school :)
Special A really reminded me of Ouran. Lots of comedy, plenty of character development, and of course the obvious: a poor girl befriending a group of elite students. The endings really reminded me of each other. Special A is more romantic - and there are plenty of side romances as well.
both of them take place at a very expensive school. They both are about a group of friends and the main characters are a boy and a girl who in the end fall in love. they are both a romanic comedy that are super cute! if you liked one of these you would probably like the other.
Both of these involve a special part of a private school, in Ouran Koukou host club's case, it's a host club, and in Special A, it's the top 7 students on the school.
In Special A, there's more rivalry with the first and second placed students, however both were designed to be comical, When I think of one or the other, the other one always comes to mind!
If you like one, you'll most likely like the other!
Both anime are similar in the aspect that they both involve a group of kids who attend a high school for the rich and famous. They both have a heroine who comes from a poor family. They both have the same kind of feel to it, and the art work seems kind of similar. There are two main differences I see between these two anime. The first one is the fact that in OKHC the heroine dresses as a boy most of the time whereas in SA she doesn't. The second one is that in OKHC the main male characters seem to have an interest in only the heroine (more of a harem) - but it does hint to a couple forming at the end; whereas in SA there is an interest between the various male and female characters leading to multiple couples. Both are good and worth watching.  read more
Both animes have the "Special Club with Special Characters" theme in it. The love story is quite interesting, and a lot of funny moments take place in most of the episodes. If you liked Ouran Host Club, then you'll love Special A! ^^
The story is not that similar but the bond that S.A has is similar to the Host club (though they are all guys except Haruhi) Ouran has more comedy at the beginning but romance just explodes at the middle ;) Also, the girl is also oblivious of the guys feelings towards her
These both are very good romantic comedy-school life anime and they are quite similar to each other. The humor, characters and even the setting quite similar to each other.
The handsome male protagonists are characters who are very successful at what they do however they have a soft and delicate side that only the female protagonists can touch. The female protagonists are self-reliant and strong characters that bring the whole group together.
Besides the hilarious emotional adventures of the main characters, eccentric friends of theirs makes you laugh.
In both anime, the story set in a very Western looking and exclusive environment with exclusive students. However in contrast to others the heroine comes from a rather common environment which make her more relatable.
If you watched one and liked it, there is a very high chance that you will like the other too. read more
The only similarity maybe is that the setting was in a special school. Ouran is for the rich, while Special A is for the geniuses. However, Ouran Host Club is so much, a whole lot better than the latter. It was a lot more fun, the heroine wasn't so weak-willed, doesn't care much, and she wasn't annoying. The confused Tamaki (male protagonist) was also very fun to watch. Romance and comedy scenes were well-timed giving so much more effect. Although it's a bit disappointing that Ouran didn't have a solid ending.
If you've seen Ouran though but not Special A, I don't particularly recommend it. You can watch it at the risk of your own time. The only thing I can say is, there was an ending so do as you please. read more
*Both under the Romance, Comedy, Shoujo and School genre.
*"Special group" composed of seven member spending time with each other.
**Six of these members are rich while the Female MC (Haruhi/Hikari) is a poor girl that somehow enrolled in the school.
*Male MC (Kei/Tamaki) are both under a strict yet powerful group/companies with a scary grandparent.
Both anime center around a lovable girl who is surrounded by a bunch of bishies (hot guys). Both also has a lot of sweet and comedic moments that will tug at your heartstring and make you laugh out loud. All in all, both are great anime with a list of characters that you can't possibly hate.
Contains similar amount of cute, comedy, sugary sweet and sometimes even a taste of drama. Characters are all likable, without any significant villian, plus both are full of attractive guys, a huge eyed female protagonist, episodic events and most of all, a feel-good factor
Both these anime are in a high school setting and are known as reverse harem (one girl amongst many guys). Each individual character have their own conflicts they must overcome. Hilarious funny moments as well.
Very similar characters and even the character design and personailities are very similar. Also it has that lighthearted atmosphere and then it has its sad tragic moments. Although in my opinion Fruits Basket has more tradgedy in it and made me cry, lol. I think both are extremley excellent anime's they are like twins or not so distant cousins. Fruits Basket made me cry out of sadness while Ouran made me cry out of laughter. Both anime's are very funny but Ouran has that one step more towards comedy and Fruits Basket one step towards the tragic. Both completley diffrent story lines!
These two shojos are the best of their genre. I'm not usually a shojo fan, but I had to sidestep and make a recommendation for them. If you like Ouran High School because of its "cuteness" especially the relationship between Tamaki and Haruhi (or even Haruhi and Kaoru), then you definitely like Fruits Basket because it has the same types interconnected relationships.
They both show a girl surrounded by a bunch of boys and trying to help. The characters are funny and the scenes hilarious. They both have their originality and quirk. If you liked Fruits Basket, there is no way you won't like Host Club!!
The most obvious is the use of the same voice actor (Japanese): Momiji = Honey. Ouran is actually a series that mocks a lot of stereotypes that male characters are put in, especially in shoujo series. While there are several references that can be drawn throughout the anime-verse, there are several than can be seen in Fruits Basket alone; and the Momiji-Honey connection is the most obvious, hence the use of the same VA. Not to mention both are hilarious in their own right with integrated moments of seriousness to show and advance plot.
Both anime feature an arena of guy characters that each separately fall squarely into one of the typical 'categories' of anime guy characters (appealing to people with different preferences), and they surround a female main character
Just like fruits basket, another girl gets sucked into a comical outragous adventure with boys... Watch as one girl goes from the commoner nerd to one of the Host Club boys... while trying to hide that she is a female.
Both are hilariously related with a reverse harem twist. One heroine surrounded by gorgeous bishounen! Not only that, they tell of a story wherein the heroine gives off an effect to each one of those gorgeous bishounen.
they DO have a storyline... they don't just go around in circles. That's why they're awesome to watch!
Both of these Anime's are completely awsome and two of the best Anime's I've ever seen. They are both reverse harem full of comedy and romance that will make you laugh and sometimes cringe. Also Momiji and Honey are voiced by the same voice actor!
Both series are mostly-friendship-based reverse harem shoujo series catalyzed by an important and series-enduring secretive element that provides as much drama as humour for the series. As both progress, the potential for drama and tears becomes clearer the more the reader gets to know about the characters' families. Some romance, some cuteness, and it turns out the series may be more similar than they seem at first glance!
There are a lot of aspects which make both Furuba and Ouran similar. First of all, both feature reverse harem (one girl around a lot of guys). They are also romantic comedies. If you liked Fruits Basket but wanted a Tohru with a more realistic personality, you might enjoy Haruhi in Ouran. Likewise, if you thought Tamaki was a bit too oblivious and air-headed, you might Yuki in Fruits Basket. Fans of Kyo will adore Kaoru and Hikaru.
The story line is not very similat but they are both funny, and about a girl down on her luck. You will truley enjoy this anime. If you can't believe it the just watch the first ep and see for your self.
Both are high school animes. They are also both comedies that are base around the same general humor. The characters are all enjoyable and relatable. Both of these animes are humor based but have that serious element to them when the time calls for it.
A LOT of the characters are really similar. For example, Hani likes to eat cake, sweet things, doesn't look his age, has blonde hair, is really cute, and has usa-chan. Momiji is possessed by the rabbit zodiac spirit, doesn't look his age, has blonde hair, likes sweet things, and is really cute. That's the most similar, but there are other things too! It's a reallly cute anime.
Both have a similar concept of one girl put in a situation of dealing with quirky guys. Both are very humorous with more serious undertones. Fruits Basket probably has more serious undertones, but both are good at balancing the serious moments with the very random and hilarious moments.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are two anime definitely worth watching. Aside from being similar in terms of being a reverse harem, both of these anime will surely keep you on your seat with their light-hearted comedy and romance.
1 female protagonist with bunch of bishounens around. But that's not all! You will also get some humorous moments, nice drawing/graphics and some more serious and dramatic moments in the end. If You feel like watching something funny, light but not stupid and completely lacking of seriousness You should watch these 2 series!
Both are about a girl who each lost their mother, but are still able to smile. They both meet weird boys, with many different secrets to tell.
Tohru Honda(Fruits Basket) is always talking to her mother in spirit, and Haruhi Fujioka(Ouran High School Host Club) is also always talking to her mother, just more in her mind and not aloud.
I think you you really enjoyed watching Ouran High School Host Club, then Fruits Basket is something you might want to try out. :)
Both are a kind of "reverse harem" thing, with the lead girl the object of many affections. Both stories are during the high school years, and are more focussed on ironic situations and causing the viewer to laugh as opposed to being serious or meaningful. Light, fun, and G.
They both have some very similar dynamics and I'm sure if you watch them you'll be able to connect similar characters together. They both have everything needed to make great shoujo comedy. (Ouran's better IMO)
For me, this recommendation was a bit obvious, but I'm going to go ahead, humor myself, and write this recommendation anyway.
The overall feel of Ouran and Fruits Basket are a bit different, but there are too many similarities between the two to leave them unchecked. Sure, the plot is a little different, and the situation, but, again, there were just too many similarities.
First is the characters. Tohru, the female protagonist of Fruits Basket, and Haruhi, the female protagonist of Ouran, both lost their moms at an early age. After living without their mom for years, they end up in a situation where they are surrounded by all men, almost all of the time. Tohru ends up in a house with men that change into animals while Haruhi ends up in a host club with men that change costumes every week.
Another character similarity. Momiji, from Fruits Basket, and Honey, from Ouran, are basically the same character, save for the fact that Honey doesn't turn into a bunny. Although, he does carry around a bunny stuffed animal constantly. Another difference is that Momiji doesn't have a character like Mori to act as his "elder", so to speak. Still if you liked one, you will like the other.
Other than characters, stories are a bit similar as well. Sure, Haruhi doesn't live with the males while Tohru does, but the way that they progress through the series gives way to see similarities. As the series progresses, however, the characters must face different types of challenges that define their characters differently.
Really, they are so similar, character wise, that it's scary, but the series do have their differences. I'm not saying that if you love one, you will love the other, but you will at least like the other. If you don't like one, I would avoid the other entirely. read more
Both series are emotionally involved - Ouran because it relates and unrelates so much to everyday life, and Fruits Basket because it also relates (and, to a lesser extent, unrelates) to everyday life. Both series, however, focus on life from different angles, with Ouran taking a more "Life is for living, let's make the very best of it and have fun times all the time" stance and Fruits Basket taking a little more serious "Life is for living, so let's put some more meaning into our lives" stance. In addition, both were hit series in Japan when they were released - what more could you possibly want? read more
They both have a sort of similar feel to them. Even though Fruits Basket isn't completely realistic, there's a lot of eccentric and dramatic characters in both series. :) For example, Momiji (Fruits Basket) and Honey-Sempai (Host Club) are a lot alike. They're both very feminine and love cute things and sweets~ :D A lot of the host club characters sometimes remind me of Ayame, too. xD
All in all, these series are 2 of my favorites, so you should watch them~
these two have that same rom com thing going on. i also feel all the characters have been well written and have good back ground storys. These two are the ones i always tell people to watch if they want to start getting in to anime, they are also the only two animes i can watch with my family and everyone loves it lol.
Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club have the lead female being forced to stay with a group of men. They both have a high school setting. There are many character similarities: Momiji (FB) and Honey (OHSHC), Hatori (FB) and Kyouya (OHSHC), and Kyo (FB) and Hikaru (OHSHC), just to name a few.
Haruhi and Tohru are both kind girls who become close to boys at their schools due to a secret they have to keep. For Fruits Basket, its about the Zodiac curse, and for Ouran High School Host Club, its about Haruhi's gender.
Both animes have such a great feel to them! They both make you laugh, as well as making you cry! However, Ouran does not have any 'Supernatural' elements included, but, there is a considerable amount of day-dreaming! I would strongly reccomend it!
When I started watching Ouran it reminded me entirely of Fruits Basket which I had watched just before this. Both are Shoujo with one girl and many men. All of the men have different, distinct personalities. There is a clear social (or familial) barrier between the girl and all of the guys. The girl is a positive influence on all of the men. Both of them have a light, whimsical feel at times relating to the comedy.
Both are reverse harems, relaxed, and humorous. Female protagonist that changes everything. You will love Tohru as much as Haruhi, or vice versa. Main characters from both anime have touching and sad pasts. Fruits Basket is as humorous and funny as Ouran; anybody who loves funny school life anime will definitely enjoy Fruits Basket or Ouran.
Both are romantic comedies and have a similar type of humour with many moments where you just can’t help but laugh out loud. Regarding story line, they both centre around a cute, sweet girl who due to different circumstances ends up being surrounded by many hot guys. Both of these animes are pretty hilarious and if you like some romance thrown in with a laugh I think you will love fruits basket and Ouran koukou host club to.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran Host Club take place in a high school setting, common threads are life in japan, humor and coming of age. The way in which the characters interact with one another is unique in its own right. The Ouran Host Club is funny with the similarities of fruits basket because both show comedy on the surface but it is the underlining stories that really makes both anime's a must see. Once you watch the Ouran Host club, you will be a new fan before your done watching the series and you will want to make this amazing anime part of your collection. read more
Both animes have light hearted story lines, are reverse harems and take place in a high school setting. Both are of the rom/com genre.
Both are full of cute and hilarous moments which are sure to entertain.
If you like one you are sure to enjoy the other.
In both shows, our main female protagonist is in a sort of reverse harem, but without any explicit romance. Tohru and Haruhi are very perceptive characters, who sort of solve the problems and change the hearts of those they meet. Also, both shows are slice-of-life shojo, with plenty of comedy.
I also found these two to be similar in that some episodes I re-watched several times, while others were painful to watch just the first time around.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits basket have the same heart in them. With likable characters and interesting situations. You could say Ouran is a hyped up, sugar rush version of Fruits basket. Both shows also have great English Dubs if your the kind of person who can't follow sub, or prefer to not have to read in order to understand.
Both of these anime have a naive female protagonist who have several male characters fighting for their affections. The female characters are both Mary Sue characters. They're both in similar categories. Their humor and characters are very similar. Momiji and Honey are practically the same character. If you liked Fruits Basket, you will like OHSHC.
They both focus on a female protagonist surround by a group of males throughout the series. The both give major feels and many facepalms! When the girl doesn't understand their feelings it's so cringy! I love both of these animes so hard!
- They have similar situations between the characters, right down to the guys realizing they like her and fighting over her while she is oblivious.
- The character designs are also very alike.
- Both are hilarious and have similar characters.
- Both are amusing, lighthearted slice-of-life comedies with female protagonists.
- The type of humor used in Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club is very similar, especially in the roles of the characters.
- All male characters have a cliche characteristic such as the cute/innocent, silly, and aloof. In both cases, a "poor" girl is forced into a "luxurious" world.
- Both series are reverse harems, and have a diverse group of very unique supporting characters.
- Both young girls having lost their mothers being thrust into a world they are unaccustomed to and touching the lives of everyone around them.
- The series both also deal with morality issues that are expressed throughout the show with a great deal of humor thrown into the mix.
- Both of the main characters are outsiders who are accidentally let into an exclusive world. Little by little, their attitudes and personalities start to change those around them and even themselves.  read more
Like Noelle said, both shows have a reverse harem thing going on (where boys are after the girl). Not all the guys in Yamato Nadeshiko are after the girl, but it's close enough to be considered a reverse harem. Comedy, weird situations. You'll enjoy both shows.
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge aka The Wallflower is similar because they are both romantic comedies that deal with an unique girl having to deal with sexy guys. Both have similar comedy and situations between the characters. I actually read Wallflower manga thinking that it reminded me of Host Club then I tracked down the anime and watched it. If you enjoy Host Club you will love Wallflower.
Both are similar, an unusual girl (Haruhi and Sunako) who coexist with a group of handsome boys, the difference will be that in ouran Haruhi have to be with them to pay her debt, and in Yamato Nadeshiko they have to be with her to have freee rent.
What could possibly be better for a girl than getting into some guys community. One girl, supposable stupid and obvious, few guys (more - better) as pretty as you couldn't even imagine. Here we go, this is shojo. But our todays guinea pigs are different. It's a total parody on all shojo cliches and many other things like date-sims, yaoi and so on. Better to watch first some classical stuff like Fushigi Yuugi, success guarantied.
Both Ouran and YNSH starts with typical and than crush all your hopes to predict movements. Prepare yourself for unstoppable laugh. Ouran is more delicate, YNSH hitting a raw nerve without hesitation. If you're shojo addict or smth like this try to bust stereotypes and than you'll definitely find those series amazing. read more
Comedy, A girl who doesn't fit in with the boys, Watch as the boys try to teach the Sunakol to become a young lady. If you loved Ouran High School you are sure to love Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Wallflower)...
The theme is the same. Both anime deal with a group of bishies around a girl. Male harem and comedy is also the theme of both anime. Although I liked OHHC much better but these two are very close in some ways.
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge is what would happen if Ouran High School Host Club has a baby with Kuragehime. While I think each one is enjoyable, I felt YNSH had more overall depth to it. While it's more famous counterpart may have NO trouble getting viewers, if you haven't seen it yet I highly recommend you watch Yamato Nadeshiko because it's SO funny and awesome!
Take one unladylike girl, stick her with a handful of dazzling, charismatic boys, and fill in the leftover space with fast-paced, frenetic, occasionally absurd humour. The series take a very similar premise (an androgynous girl works off a debt to a host club by learning to become one of them, a group of dazzling boys attempt to reform their landlady's anti-social niece with free rent as their motivation) and take off running in opposite but equally hilarious and entertaining directions. Similar, but different enough to be fresh and funny instead of the same ol' thing.
Both animes are so funny in a similar way. High school stuff, ''hyper cool' boys and ''alternative'' girl in a lot of LOL situations. The characters are amusing and likeable. In both animes the characters get themselves involved in crazy situations and you really laugh your ass off!!! I find both really similar and both are definitely high recommended: you have to see them!!!
If you liked Ouran High School Host Club, you'll like Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge too. That is because both of them are about a girl that stays around a group of pretty boys. Together they are going trough a lot of funny adventures. I don't know how to put it, but I think that you won't regret! o.-
Both revolve around a reluctant heroine stuck in a group of hilarious bishonen in a sort of "reverse-harem" theme. In both they go through funny situations and the character interactions are very much alike. While there is more of a plot line in Ouran both anime share a very similar theme and comedy.
If you loved Ouran; you'll love Wallflower too! x
If you're into reverse harems, then these anime's are a few of those. Both anime's have their sets of bishounens to awe and dazzle the females and of course a main shoujo...a shoujo that's not beauty-conscious and disregards her appearance but would be very kawaii if only she knows and is willing to fix herself up...
These anime's will leave you laughing in your seat with their excessive humor and romance that you will really look forward to.
Both feature the popular idea of the 'reverse harem' with the female main character spending all her time with the male counterparts. Both the female protagonists are similar in that they are indifferent to the boy's charms and are forced into spending time together. Haruhi (Ouran) broke the expensive vase so she has to serve in the Host Club - Sunako (Yamato Nadeshiko) is sent to her aunt's house where four boys live free of rent, only if they can turn Sunako into a beautiful lady.
Ouran High School Host Club and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower) may appear different on the surface, but when you start watching, the two series really do have a lot in common. First is the fact that the main, female protagonist is forced to be around an attractive group of men. Although Haruhi, from Ouran, and Sunako, from The Wallflower, act different, they share the same "not a typical woman" kind of personality.
The basic idea of the story is similar as well, but other than that, the stories are pretty different. Because of the difference characteristics of the male protagonists, the story doesn't match very well past the main idea. Overall, the series have the same feel and basic idea for female protagonists. I'm not saying the viewer will love both of them, but if you like one, the other does deserve at least a look. read more
These reverse harem is about a girl adapted by a group of handsome rich boys in their apartment or club and a romance or attraction will blossom; both these animes are similar in that way. The question is... who will the girl chose?
Both have very similar humor and a lot of strange things going on such as crossdressing and awkward moments. They both focus on a girl who is surronded by gorgeous boys but doesn't get all excited about it like most girls would. Plus both have Vic Mignogna!
They're both Reverse Harem animes, only three continuous female characters, two of which don't appear much at the beginning. Both comedy, both animes where the leading female and the leading male seem to have crushes on each other, just in this case, they don't know it. YNSH is a lot darker than Ouran HSHC, but they are both still very cute.
Both deal with a set of beautiful boys trying to help out one girl. In each case a new girl arrives and they help her. Both are absolutely hilarious. in ouran its about a girl who transfers to an academy but she is mistaken for a boy. In the Wallflower the main girl is seen as scary and creepy. Both have goals to turn the female into a beautiful women.
Both series have female protagonists surrounded by beautiful men and they are both school comedy and romance. Even though i like Ouran High School Host Club more, if you enjoyed The Wallflower, you really should watch Ouran High School Host Club.
these two titles both include the genre "bishounen" (which means that an anime includes hot guys xD) but the story is different. the wall flower is basically about these attractive guys trying to change a girl in love with death,spirits,blood and ect into a lady while ohhc story is the there's a host club with a host thats really a girl trying to pay off the vase she broke. ^^
Well, in both anime the main heroine is surrounded by (hot) boys against her own will
The boys in both anime have a special 'type' (prince type, cute type, playboy, etc.)
In both anime there is a another girl close to the group (Ouran-Renge and Yamato-Noi)
Ouran High School Host Club and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (The Wallflower in English) both consist of a female main character that does not look their best, and good-looking male students trying to make them more ladylike. Though, the boys' reasons for trying to make the female more ladylike are different, both have romance as well as comedy, with a little bit of darkness at some point in the story.
They have the 'really pretty' male characters and the 'fragile but strong' main girl. It's basically the story of a girl that live with pretty boys, and in both of cases, the girl isn't a 'perfect lady', but likes to do the 'home service' and the boys try to make her become one.
Reverse harem shows that actually make an effort to capture your interest. Quirky heroines, over-the-top shenanigans, and ridiculous male characters allow both shows to rise above the negative connotations of the genre.
*Both are reverse harems, have the typical pretty boy cast, and end ripping your expectations of an unoriginal plot and characters to shreds. Although I admit that The Wallflower (alternate name for Yamato Nadeshiko Schichi Henge) isn't as amazing as Ouran (my opinion), it is wonderful in its own way. So what are you still doing here? Go watch it!
This is very similar to ouran high school host club. it is toned down on the romantic side and amped up on the funny side. it almost goes too far in the whole cute guys side of things as is probs a bit embarrassing to watch with a group but is still absolutely enjoyable.
Both are reverse Harems with an out of place female character
the main differences is in Ouran they exploit the female's confusing appearance, whereas in Yamato they are trying to make the lead more feminine. Both leads are talented and quite pretty when they try. Both are surrounded by 'pretty boys'. I think I like Ouran a little better, except for the over-used banana peel gag.
The major similarities between these shows are that they are both reverse harem and full of comedy. The shows are not all that similar from there on, and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge(The Wallflower) does not have as much to bring as Ouran Highschool Host Club in the ways of art/animation and the characters in general. However, depending on what show you enjoyed and for what reasons I believe it is worth checking out the other.
If you like Ouran, you might like this show also, as they handle the same theme of a not-so-feminine girl trying to get along with astonishingly handsome but equally vain boys. The big difference is that Yamato Nadeshiko ShichiHenge focuses more on cracking merciless jokes on the "loveliness" of these boys than really portraying them as "lovely". I guess this series parodies the bishounen-element Ouran relies on.
There is a situation where the high school students are all working together and form their own group. Eventually the main character of this story also shows love for the female character who starts working as a maid or a server in this case. :]
Delicious shoujo! OHSHC has another strong willed and somewhat wrecklessly self reliant heroine with not just one but several very good looking guys looking after her (not to mention the lovely Hikaru and Kaoru twins that are "very close"). VERY worth the watch.
I LOVED these 2 animes. Ouran has always been a favorite of mine and when i was recommended Maid-sama i was a little reluctant. but after i started watching i noticed the similarities right away. if you want an anime about gorgeous boys and the tomboy with a secret that steals everyones hearts, these 2 animes are for you! the characters all have similar traits and while watching Maid-sama i was constantly making references back to Ouran! if you're a fan of Ouran then you have to watch Maid-sama and vice versa!
Both animes have a strong leading female role who have a secret they are trying to keep from fellow students. Both plots have key love interests and several minor love interests that develop throughout the anime.
Even though the stories may seem quite different, the hero and heroine of both shows share a lot of similarities. Tamaki and Takumi (even the names sound similar) are both rich, hot guys who all the girls fall head over heels for but they are only interested in their respective heroines Haruhi and Misaki. The heroines, Haruhi and Misaki, are both diligent girls but come from poor families; they do not care much for boys and focus more on studying and excelling at other things
Both mainly light hearted and hilarious. Both have totally oblivious heroines and obviously crushing guys. Amazing characters with defined personalities and lots of lovable supporting characters as well. Fans of the Hitachiin brothers will definitely adore Usui, and vice-versa.
Both anime have a lot of hilarious moments and a lot of cosplaying.
The female leads from both anime, Haruhi and Misaki, are hardworking, intelligent and poor girls who finds the male lead annoying.
Tamaki and Takumi are also similar. They're mixed, rich, hot and have family problems.
I love their anime and manga.
Similar feel and humor. In Ouran, the big thing is host clubs, while in Maid-Sama the big thing is maid cafes - both of which always consist of dressing up and trying hard to appeal to their customers. And obviously the main female leads have some similar characteristics: poor, strong-willed, and followed around by some blonde boy who loves her.
The relationship between Misa-Chan and Usai are alot like the relationsihp the Main characters have in Ouran Koukou Host Club as in she's not interested in him at first and is in away oblivious. But the entire series is hilarious and this is my second favorite show to Ouran koukou Host Club!! Love it!!!
Ouran reminded me a lot of Kaichou Wa Maid-sama for many reasons. The fact Misaki worked for a cosplay café in Maid-sama and in Ouran, most of the main characters work at a host club; which are very similar.
Two of the characters from each show are also similar in personality. Both are natural, poor, and aren't really about frilly girl things. Also the comedy and romance are 2 genres they both have in common.
Pick up your broken dreams and disappointed hearts from the end of Ouran, and head on over to Kaichou, the parallel world where the outsiders' the dude, and the hosting is by gals, and where actual romantic progression is a thing that happens
Having watched Ouran Highschool Host Club directly after Kaichou wa Maid-sama!, I found the two both appealed to me in very similar ways. Both shows have female characters who are being fawned over. The lead girls are both strong willed and both have secrets which the male protagonist knows. I thought the two shows complimented each other. The two have similar humor, and the artwork is nearly identical.
Both are the similar because they're both a shoujo that would entertain you. Also the main male lead want to keep the occupation of the main female lead a secret. You'll have to watch them to believe it.
The heroines of these 2 series are both brave and daring, showing many male characteristics. Of course, this means that the male lead must help the heroines out when they unconsciously put themselves in danger due to their selflessness and desire to help others.
they are both based on girls who are not the richest people but fall in love with someone that they at first didnt pay much attention to or didnt know. Tho thet are both great romance animes i've rewatched both at least 4 times
-Main character dressing up like a male, therefore they're being mistaken as a male by everyone instead of a female
-Main character ends up in a host club, damaging some of their belongings, therefore they're forced to join the main character's team
-Both give off VERY similar vibes
-Both involve stunning, attractive characters
-Both male lead in both anime's personality is very similar: Cocky, get lots of ladies, popular
The similarity between these 2 anime are the situation the female lead are place into, which is being forced into a club by the male lead to repay for the damages of expensive items they broke as well the female leads being mistaken as a guy by the male lead and is forced to maintain the opposite sex to repay the debt.
That being said, the difference are that in Ouran the female lead does not care if her sex is mistaken, While in Aoharu x kik shes mindful of being mistaken. Also, the club they are force into are different as well. In both anime, they are a host club at start but in Aoharu x kikanjuu she was force to join a Survival game team and the male lead refuses to allow girls in but mistaken the female sex due to her appearance and action. While in Ouran it was an actual host club, but did not allow any female to be the host because it's against the rule.
So if you enjoy Ouran Koukou, you'll surely enjoy Aoharu read more
Judging by the first episode, the whole first episodes were soo similar to each other. In both anime there is a girl (looking like a guy and actually mistaken for one) involved with blondie boy working as host. The girl makes some things broken there and is forced to pay for it yet it's so much that she has to pay for it by joining them. Also the characters are really similar. Even by the appearance. Both comedy. Similar vibes.
Practically the same premise except one has guns in it the other one doesn't :D try to guess which on of them is which (hint hint, it's in the title) Have fun watching both since both of them a blast :)
If you watched OHSHC, then your mind will instantly snap a connection!
The protagonists are highschool girls dressed as boys and accidentally made a commitment with "host club"; That cause them to be part of a team. Cute, yet strong-willed cross-dressers in what they believe in. These series are comedic with highly attractive bishounens as well.
Haruhi Fujioka, the poor scholarship student, enrolls to a rich academy, and joins the host club, unwillingly, because 'he' broke an expensive vase. Unless her debt is paid off, she will have to be a host until then. OHSHC leans more to the shoujo/romance genre.
On the other side, Hotaru Tachibana, hates evil in general. Hotaru misunderstands a situation and proceeds to confront a host club. Hotaru commits to a bet, ruins an expensive workplace, and have no choice, but to join the team. Aoharu x Kikanjuu is more to action side so far. read more
A female main character is often mistaken for a guy, she only reinforces these misunderstandings by dressing as a male. In order to pay for the damages she caused to an elitist host club, she is forced to join (the host club in Ouran, survival game club in Aoharu).
The host club itself is an important set piece for the story and it's led by a charismatic and cocky man, who takes interest in the girl MC.
The humor in both series comes mainly from the girl being thrown into a male-only group.
The first episodes of both shows follow a similar plot line. A girl disguised as a boy goes into a host club and breaks expensive things. The blond outgoing host invites the girl to join the activity they need them for, but they are male inclusive only activities. And so each story begins. Honestly Ouran had a better execution of the whole oweing a host concept, but both shows are still enjoyable.
In both anime:
- Both anime have a very similar feel to them, and I enjoyed them both for very similar reasons. Both anime have the same kind of atmosphere to them. If you liked one you should definitely try the other!
- They both have plenty of good quality comedy, and similar sorts things are funny in both anime (for instance, both have a lot of humor centering around a girl getting mistaken for a boy).
- Both anime have some very emotional moments.
-The main character is a girl who most people mistake for a boy. Both main characters are uninterested in girly things and prefer boys clothes etc. They have a lot in common and if you like one you'll probably like the other.
- The main character becomes in debt to a host club, and because of this is forced to join a group run by the clubs top host to pay off the debt.
- If you like Tamaki you will like the male lead from Aoharu x Kikanjuu. they're both: the number one host in the club where they work, handsome, blond, a bit vain, a bit dumb, very enthusiastic, a flirt and very likable.
- In both anime the main character has to hide the fact they're a girl in order to stay in their group (in Ouran High School Host Club the host club, and in Aoharu x Kikanjuu the survival game team). There's lot's of comedy about this in both anime.
- Both anime have brilliant characters, both individually and as a combination. The characters just go so well together! In both anime the relationships between the characters are very important and moving, as well as funny. read more
Girl Protagonist, mistaken as a guy, is forced to join a certain "club" and has to act as the opposite gender. Reason being is that she needs to repay the damages she had caused at the host club that belongs to the guy protagonist.
-In both anime, the protagonists wa forced into doing what they think is stupid and weird, but they eventually likes the job as they partcipated.
- Everyone thinks that the protagonist was a boy, though the protagonist was a girl. (Yeah, yeah -.,-)
-The anime type was different~ one was an action/ gun stuff, when the other one was basically guys and girls in a host club, how girls fall for the charm of the hosts. -.-"
( I don't know if Aoharu x Kikanjuu will turn out to be al ovey- dovey anime or not, since it's ongoing and only 3 episodes'out.)
A cliche(but not really) story about a short-haired girl with a boyish attire, which cause him to be mistaken as a male. Because of this, Matsuoka Masamune, a host, made the main character, Tachibana Hotaru, join his team alliance called the "Toy ☆ Gun Gun Team." It's a "survival game", a real-life game wherein the players uses guns(bullets are fake). you will surely like Hotaru because of her strong sense of justice. Join her adventure as she gather courage to reveal that she's really a girl to her teamates.
-Girl who is mistaken as a guy for a MC
-MC is forced to join the guys group in OHSHC it is because a vase was broken but in this the MC lost a survival game gun fight to the host and had to join their SG team
Both of these anime's will have you laughing and wanting more, the only thing I wish was recognized in Aoharu was the MC actually being a female in the anime, it might in the manga but I never read it.
axk and ohshc are similar bc the protag has to repay a debt and ends up in a place where they wouldnt expect themselves to. later on in the series they find themselves having the best time and learning a bunch of new things with great ppl.
short and cute anime. very straight forward and has lots of comedy. axk is very nicely animated and the characters are all v loveable!!
It's been a while since I've rewatched Ouran back in 2009 but I will never forget how it made me laugh and moved me with each character development. Truthfully, I've only seen 3 eps so far of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun but I've laughed and giggled in each one. I like the main heroine, Sakura, because like Haruhi, she doesn't get carried away into each character's unique world, and like in ouran, the guys are handsome, and plus, gekkan shoujo has their own Prince. (And Nozaki-kun's tall height and sexy short black hair reminds me of Mori-senpai.)
I'm highly recommending this anime because of its high school rom-com qualities and not because of the "reverse-harem" label some people have stuck on it. It's not a reverse-harem and it would be a shame if people overlooked it because they thought it was. Its demographic is actually Shounen and published under Square Enix according to wiki. BUT, don't let that fool you either. It doesn't seem to have any ecchi scenes or slight yuri fanservice. So far, it's just about Nozaki-kun and the people around him. If you're cursing me for not telling you the plot right now, it's cuz I can't. Sakura is in love with Nozaki and he's oblivious, but it doesn't seem to be the main plot right now. You just have to see it for yourself. It's just really funny and the characters are really handsome.
If you're a shoujo anime fan that's looking for something to watch but is slightly sick of "handsome, rich, young man suddenly falling in love with a strong-willed heroine" but still wants a little bit of love in your life or a Kaoru-Hikaru fan that would like to indulge in the innocence of very very subtle gay otp couples that are never meant to be. (disclaimer warning: you must have a very sexy imagination to see these subtle pairings.) I have no idea if this could be for you, I just wanted to say that it's probably too late to save you guys haha xD
SUMMARY TIME: All joking aside, If you are looking for a reverse harem just like Ouran, then this anime is probably not what you want. If you are looking for something funny, (ongoing as of right now as I'm typing,) AND have bishounen in it, then look no further. This is it. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. read more
A bunch of insane, lovable losers get together in a club of some sort and beautiful, beautiful shenanigans occur. Gorgeous comedy in both of them, though Ouran is more romantic and Nozaki is more pure comedy.
Both defy gender conventions, do not take themselves seriously and have zany hi-jinks amongst a colorful cast of characters. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaku-kun is more comedy and less drama than OKHC. Both are refreshing to watch and treat their characters of all sexes respectfully.
They both play on shoujo tropes in a way that is self-aware eg. prince types; serious, oblivious types. They're both relatively short and very funny, with characters that will reach your heart. They're both lighthearted and would suit a young teenage audience.
Both series have characters who queer gender, overt homos, and well-rounded female protagonists who get annoyed by the men around them.
Just delightful <3
They're both comedic pokes at the shoujo genre and the cliches it holds, and I feel like they're both hugely appreciated by their watchers. They're light-hearted and easy to watch, and the humour is (in my opinion) top notch in both shows.
While Ouran is a reverse harem and GSNK isn't, both have very colorful characters, similar humor, and they both play with shoujo tropes. Also, Nozaki reminds me of Mori and Kashima reminds me of Tamaki.
Both shows, in addition to being instant mood-boosters, are clever parodies of the shoujo genre. It's easy to tell how much love went into their productions based on the writing quality alone, and even moreso when paired with the almost universally perfect performances from their casts. Easily two of the funniest anime, if not shows in general, I've ever had the pleasure of watching.
1. Characters are strikingly similar in both anime, if you liked one, you will like the other.
2. GSN the male lead is dense, OHHC the female lead is dense.
3. Very melodramatic in terms of humor and personalities but extremely hilarious
GSNK and OHSHC are episodic animes that consist of people living their daily lives at a bizarre but interesting school environment (and outside the school as well). The way I like to describe the two is "dramatic characters in a semi-realistic environment". Both are about the daily interactions of classmates. In one, the main characters are part of the school's host club, while in the other, the characters are part of a "group of students who help in manga work".
Both animes are classified as rom-coms, although the "romance" part isn't as pronounced as the "comedy" part. They are both lighthearted and fun to watch. The main characters, Haruhi in one and Sakura in the other, both stumble upon their respective "groups" by chance. Furthermore, you may find Tamaki's personality is very similar to Mikorin. The focal points of these animes don't always stay on the main character: you get to meet many other characters and see their interactions as well. read more
These two animes bring a light hearted feel with a majority of comedy and a hint of romance. The characteristics of the characters are somewhat the same and also bring the watcher a light hearted feel. Also with a similarity being that they are both set in a high school environment. I highly recommend both.
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is a romcom that's light on the romance, heavy on the comedy.
Both are shoujo animes like you've never seen them before- inverting and satirizing common shoujo tropes, sparse romantic moments that have you begging for more, and are followed by over the top gags bound to leave you in stitches.
Unlike OHSHC, Gekkan Shoujo's titular character Nozaki spends his time observing his friends as inspiration for his own shoujo manga, while unknowingly being caught in a romance himself with the viewpoint character, Sakura.
If you're looking a great laugh mixed with some heart-racing romance, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is the next anime for you.
If you have watched Gekkan Shoujo, then its absolutely necessary that you watch at least some shoujo anime (or better yet, read manga, if you're into that sort of thing). However, shoujo, with its odd art style and often bizarre plots (that Gekkan Shoujo makes fun of) can be hard to stomach for anyone that doesn't enjoy it already.
Luckily, Ouran is a "light shoujo", which makes fun of itself and is surprisingly self-aware for its genre; it also has very little if any "shoujo drama" that often puts off viewers. If it doesn't make you want to watch more shoujo, it will at least make re-watches of Gekkan Shoujo more enjoyable. read more
Romantic Shoujo mixed with a good amount of Comedy. Thats what the two have in common the most. Although at first glance the two can seem very different, a further look shows the two are very similar in their storytelling style.
Full of funny moments, both Ouran and Lovely Complex are a great opportunity to have a good time. They also have nice love stories and an atmosphere of friendship and happiness. Risa and Haruhi aren't mere shoujo characters, sometimes they act very similar.
Both have the same kind of wacky humor. The romance in Lovely Complex flies by a little quicker than the one(s) is Ouran, but they're both just as sweet. They'll both have you laughing out loud and you'll definitely fall in love with all the characters from each anime!
Romance-Comedy from a shoujo aspect dosn't get much better than Ouran Host Club, but it does get better. In the form of LoveCom that is.
LoveCom is another anime that feature a simple yet strange idea that kicks off a romantic drama for its female heroine.This goes on to put said girl in many unfamiliar situations as she falls in love, confesses and finnally get the guy.
So if you're a fan of everything romance-comedy and ouran, LoveCom is for you!
Both happy and cheerful mood and both with character complications. Ouran High School Host club is more of splice of life comedy. Lovely complex develops more of the characters relationships with comedy. Both are great watchers!
Both are slice of life, funny shows where you will find yourself easily relating to the characters as they develop. Both have some romance and focus on boys and girls getting to know each other and develop deeper relationships. Two of my favorites !
It has the same general light heartedness of Ouran, also the jokes are delivered in a similiar way as it is in Ouran. So if you enjoyed the Humor in Ouran you will certainly also love the humor in lovely complex.
It has funny moments as well as serious moments. The characters aren't just crazy and hilarious. They all have backgrounds that aren't really that happy. The main character is also sort of thrown into a world that she isn't used to. There are also many cute guys.
The stories are different, but the main characters are similar - smart, quick, determined, tomboyish "commoners" (though Haruhi is much more mature than Kyoko). The humor is similar too. I think if you like one, you'll appreciate the other one. They are light and funny and great
Well, the feel that is. Not with the story or anything. Both the leads are such enjoyable characters, Haruhi and Kyoko. I like girls who know how to fight and not the damsel in distress type. These animes well represented the Shoujo Genre. Girl Power!
Simply: both are love-comedies with a lot of bishies.
Main female characters are not very much alike, but they both only have one parent, are commoners, stubborn, nice and brave.
Imo, OHSHC is still better.
They both display strong woman that don't give up. The two female characters are usually one's to give advise and make others happier.
Both have comedy, but Ouran High Schoo Host Clubl is definitely funnier than Skip Beat. :]
When it comes to Romance, in Ouran the main characters fail to notice their feelings for eachother through out... just about the entire anime, but they do have moments of romance which make it cute :P In Skip Beat, the romance is more on the sadder side, but it more about understanding the concept of being in love. Then again both guy and girl fail to notice their feelings for one another until later on in the anime. read more
They are both hilariouse *sp?* anime and the main character in skip beat have the same personality as tomeki in OHHC with a mad way .Also they are not long and you will enjoy every single moment of them .
Both are hilarious, romantic, with strong female leads. They have similar romantic backgrounds, with both the female leads disliking the male main characters in the beginning, but falling in love in the end. I highly recommend Skip Beat if you liked OHHC!
If you love comedy with a hint of romance, this is the anime for you. After being treated like a carpet by her famous 'friend' Kyoko decides that taking away the spotlight will be the best form of revenge. Follow her journey as an aspiring actress as she tries desperately to exceed in the industry and find herself along the way.
Both are about a girl on a special school having her own reverse harem. Also, they both have romantic parts and are Shoujou anime.
Ouran is about a host club (obviously) and tends to be more silly, and UtaPri is about singing and is more serious most of the time, but other than that they are pretty similar.
"Sen percen' love" Also a reverse harem. This anime is pretty typical. Selective music school is the base.The main protagonist isn't simply an obstinate (or clueless) love interest to allow the audience to oggle bishies And the bishies aren't the exact same looking someone's definition of a perfect guy. She's the lyricist and they're the performers. even if you don't watch the anime Watch the opening theme song. 'cause it is freaking epic!
It's like Ouran with singing, really. They both have similar character types, and the episodes are set up in the same way. The fun and lovability that characterize Ouran are evident in Prince Sama too. But don't label Uta no Prince Sama as an Ouran Ripoff, it really is much different, but with the same feel. If you cried at the end of Ouran, You'll cry at the end of Prince Sama, I can guarantee that.
Both series are reverse Harems that focus on the friendship between the main female lead and the boys surrounding her, thus, when Haruhi/Haruka spends time with each different guy we don't get the feeling that she is being unfaithful to the others.
Special school, check! Reverse harem, check! Cute female protagonist who is different compared to the other students, check! Crossdressing, check! Fanservice, check! (For straight girls though, or gay boys. Sorry!)
UtaPri and Ouran are really alike, though, UtaPri is more serious at the times as Ouran tends to make you laugh every second. But hey, instead of rich brats fooling around all the time, UtaPri has boys cute bishou-boys singing and that can't be that bad, aye? And those boys like in Ouran, they WILL make you fall for them. And Haruka, UtaPri's main character, like Haruhi, is anything but a Mary Sue. (See, even the names are alike. I s2g)p
If you liked UtaPri, you probably like Ouran and if you like Ouran, well, I hope you do like UtaPri. They're both hella funny and worth watching. read more
Both of these shows have a cute female main surround by 6 dashing guys in a school setting. The two present some great, laugh out loud comedy, but UtaPri also develops some more meaningful moments. Each show takes many of the shoujo cliches and plays off them, creating some over-the-top scenarios that you can't help but enjoy.
Differences? I found Haruhi (from Ouran) to be a deeper character with much more spunk and personality. Haruka (from UtaPri) is shy and likes to please others (but she sure has some cute outfits!).
Most importantly, in both shows you'd be hard pressed to choose one of these bishies over the others... you really get to love them all!
BONUS: UtaPri had me totally fangirling over the music. I didn't go into the show expecting much from the music, but I ended up loving nearly every song! read more
If you like School Comedies like School Rumble, then you'll definitely love watching Ouran High School Host Club! OHSHC may take a while to get used to the way the boys handle, but later you'll so going to appreciate it.
They are similar in some ways, especially since it's about high school students. Ouran is also funny, though not as funny as School Rumble (but SR is reeeally hard to beat in that way, for me at least)
Both SchoolRumble and Ouran will make you laugh time and again. They are funny, can be poignant at times, are mostly random but do have something of a plot. Both focus on high school students and their interactions with each other. Though they are not entirey similar (no anime can be), if you like one then there is a high chance you will enjoy the other.
Both are school animes, although School rumble has a more serious plot, they're both very comical, both involve a female and male protagonist, with the male trying to attract the female, however in School rumble, it's more of a love triangle, both are extremely good and funny animes.
If you like one, you'll most likely like the other!
Though the art style is starkly different (probably the hardest part of the transition) they're both absolutely hilarious romcoms which are primarily great because of their lovably, zany characters. If you enjoyed Ouran Host Club and all of its humor but are looking for something geared a little bit more toward males than School Rumble delivers.
There isn't much connecting the two shows besides their genres, as most of the characters don't have counterparts. But that's why I think School Rumble is a great show to follow Ouran with, because it offers a new perspective on a high school romance, uses the same general slice of life format and comedy. If you enjoyed Ouran for it's lovable characters and crazy humor, than you'll love School Rumble all the same, while still getting a taste of something new.  read more
it is similar in sveral ways. 1. the main character haruhi is made to part of the host club for breaking an item in the club. where as toru is nominated to part of the princess system. 2. haruhi is a girl and dresses as a guy to pay her debt, b/c the host club is made up of all guys. where as toru is made to dress like a girl b/c he and the others in the system are morral builders for the boys at the school. and 3. both characters impact the other characters around them.
When I watched this the show it instantly reminded me of ouran and whenever the princess' smile its just like a ouran host.I actually found this recommendation of the net too and then I remembered I was reading it in a otakuzine in the magazine said that all fangirls should at least try it.So i decided to watch it the tags normally given to it was:comedy,shojo,yaoi,gender-bending,cross dressing,need i say more I really incourage you to watch and dont worry for me it was one of those anime thatyou just go on and on
Both animes have the gender bender host feel to them and are romantic comedy based. Also the main characters both come from a humble back ground and go to a private school that has a host type club/ group and are dragged into it at first against there will.
I just started watching Princess Princess and both shows are similar. Dont belive me Ill break it down. Protagonist having to dress as the opposite gender, clubs made to pander for people, good looking guys, over the top comedy, relatabity in the drama, cute openings, made in earily 2000's, schools that are academies, protagonist starting to enjoy their clubs.
Both are school anime with a central female character surrounded by a lot of handsome guys. The girl comes to play a significant role in their lives helping them to change. Also, what both animes have in common is a rather ambigous romance line, when practically any male character has a potential to become a love interest for the main heroine.
these two series seem like they don't have an ending. there are a bunch of guys, one girl and most of the guys(or all) are into the girl. lol. anyway, in both of these series you'll cry, laugh, and love these animes. both of these have music too, that is if you like music as much as i do. but these two are just awesome. ^^
If you're a fan of one girl being surrounded by a bunch of guys, then these are the animes for you. All the male love candidates are as differeent as can be, and you've got a nice selection of pairings to choose from ;)
they both having a group of high school students consisting of a girl among a bunch of charming guys who all are liking her. Only that Kiniro no Corda has a second girl but pretty much unthere cause of extream silence she has. with some love complications an challenges.
They're so reminding me of each other!
Although their plots are very different, both offer the same type of humor. The characters fall under certain stereotypes, as well. In Hetalia, the characters are stereotypes of the countries they represent. In Ouran, the characters fall under stereotypes of different types of men that would appeal to girls. And of course, both contain plenty of bishonen, but do appeal to all demographics.
BISHIES EVERYWHERE. There are very few girl characters in either anime. That is really the only similarity between the two. That, and Italia's personality reminds me a bit of Tamaki's. Both are good animes, and both deserved to be watched.
Both are fun shows based on stereotypes, though different kinds. Both are personal favorites of mine, too. While Hetalia has less of a story arc than Ouran, they both have similar humor and tone ( I only wouldn't recommend Hetalia if you're really sensitive to racism) But if you love Ouran for the Humor, I can guarantee you'll love Hetalia.
These two anime tend use the same type of humor, general art style, and are very energetic and fun to get into. Though personally, I am not a huge fan of Ouran HSHC for its repetitiveness, they are very similar in their comedic senses.
The story-lines aren't very similar but the random (and not logical) experiences both Haruhi's experience (well, in melancholy's case, mostly Kyon's experience) are quite similar. While watching Melancholy, I thought of Ouran so yeah. They're both quite funny too.
Both Ouran and Suzumiya poke fun at stereotype things within the shoujo genre. Ouran focuses a bit more on romance stereotypes while Suzumiya deals with the most common characters in the Sci-fi part of shoujo. Both are light hearted comedys.
Kuragehime really reminds me of Ouran. They both have really light-hearted, cute, and silly humor, and the romance aspects of them are pretty fluffy but at the same time enjoyable. On top of that, "being pretty" and such are recurring themes in both, though it's taken more seriously in Kuragehime. Ouran was about a group of good-looking guys, helping to get Haruhi out of her shell and not judging people so quickly. But Kuragehime is about one good-looking "girl" showing a group of otaku women how to do the same.
The whole atmosphere of the show is very similar and so is the humor. They're both very carefree and easy to rewatch. They also feature a similar kind of romance - starts out as friendship. Also, the main heroines are both very similar, rather quiet and intelligent. Although Haruhi seems more reserved at times.
They both are romantic comedies with a hilariously funny bunch of characters that will make you smile throughout the series. Oh... And did I mention that they both have cross-dressers as the main characters? Of course I didn't. LOL! Anyway, Kuragehime isn't as random as OHSHC, but gives you all the chuckles you need.
Both light-hearted and hilarious, a bit of a parody (more Ouran that Kuragehime), with interesting characters that have great chemistry! Also, both have underlying substance to the story amidst all the comedy presented in a way that's not cliche and is highly entertaining.
I have a strong suspicion that Otome Youkai Zakuro was made to resemble Ouran. Both Tamaki and Agemaki come from a strict family, yet each are kindhearted. Haruhi and Zakuro are both strong, independent women who don't want to rely on others.
The characters in both series are very similar. The prince-type-blonde which ended up being super funny and pathetic (Tamaki and Agemaki), The hyper identical twins (Hikaru & Kaoru and Bonbori & Hoozuki) that are imposible to tell apart but someone does, the one who does is kindda normal and is poke by the twins (Haruhi and Ganryuu), The silent one (Mori-senpai and Riken).Plus both series are Romance and Comedy.
Both are ridiculous, over-the-top action packed school-life romantic comedies with a lot of charm and great characters. Baka and Test, at least the anime, is also MUCH more female friendly than most school-life romantic comedies (save for series that are actually tagged as shoujo) as it has a lot of allusions to shoujo manga and anime (CLAMP references, yaoi implications, etc). They both take place at fancy academies and have an air of lavishness about them, although you don't get to see the lavish side nearly as much in Baka and Test because we follow Class F.
Both of them are funny examples of strange school life, with romance, craziness, and just children running wild. They also play a lot on the idea of stereotypes and how sometimes you can judge them and sometimes you can't. Sometimes the idiot can be the most charming.
3 words. OVER EXAGGERATED COMEDY! This is my favourite type of comedy and I love how the characters in both animes make the simplest issue that usually won't effect your daily life into something over exaggerated and turn it into a very funny scene. If you like gay jokes ,stupid jokes , baka characters then those are definetly here. There hasn't been a dull moment in these series and they easily fit in my Top 5 Comedy animes of all time. So if you like Ouran definetly check Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu! Same goes the other way around.
These two are both funny, tug-on-your-heartstrings shows with oddly intriguing main characters. Baka and Test, in my opinion, is the more funny of the two but both have mild love triangles, crazy hijinks, cute characters and a plot that just somehow fits.
Ouran High School Host Club leans more of the deeper side while maintaining its lighthearted nature. One would likely assume from the name that Baka and Test would be a blatantly stupid-comedy. However you would end up pleasantly surprised with a show based more on witty comedy and overall, friendship.
It involves a really similar style of crazy humor, similar characters, the theme of an oblivious person with people falling for them, several of the same voice actors, and a fun plot line just like B&T, so you should definitely check it out.
Both reverse-harem type shows with similarly intelligent, practical women at the center. Ouran's a little perkier and funnier (and frankly, better) overall, but if you're a fan of the genre and like watching all those pretty, pretty guys falling in love one by one...
Well, first things first. Both are reverse harems, main protogonist is dense towards romantic relaionships AND they don't bow down to the guys :D If you liked Saiunkoku Monogatari, I think you'll like Ouran just as much, or even more! XD
This is similar to Ouran Hig hSchool Host club because there is one main female surrounde by lots of pretty, important, and strong boys. Haruhi is a bit like Shuurei because they're both poor in a place where there are only rich people, and (mainly) rich boys.
The most hilarious situations, characters and school lives you could find. Each character has their own quirks, and both animes are slice of life. Though in Ouran the group consists of mostly boys, in Azumanga Daioh it consists of mostly girls. Both have a genius stuck in a somewhat hopeless group of friends.
Azumanga Daioh and Ouran Highschool Hostclub are random, and yet worth the watch.
What I loved about Ouran was the variety of characters and the fun but at appropriate times serious atmosphere. Free! has great characters and even though it didn't have the "chasing the girl" aspect to it and is a completely different setting, it's really enjoyable just to see the relationships develop between the different characters and it still has the fun group feeling as Ouran
- Even though both have really different plots if you liked one you'll enjoy the other one as well
- Both are for girls enjoyment
- Super hot boys doing super cute stuff
- You'll laugh and cry with both shows
- Rin and Tamaki same voice actor
- Momo and Hikaru same voice actor and similar personality
- A girl we can all relate to (Gou and Renge)
- Both have just the right amount of gay
Both anime's revolve a girl surrounded by guys who are protective of them and like them with the girl completely oblivious. They both have great humor that will keep you laughing throughout the anime, if you like Ouran you're sure to like Watashi!
- Both are reverse harems
- Handsome male characters
- Perfect girl that looks like a dude goes after the MC
- Romantic comedy
- The MC of both series change their looks on some aspect
- While Ouran is a hundred times better you'll enjoy this one too
Revolutionary Girl Utena and Ouran host club are cut from the same cloth...
They both parody many shoujo anime themes such as roses.
The shows have very similar art, and both use a fair amount of symbolism.
They are both set in prestigious boarding schools for the rich with a french architecture design.
The comedy is similar using abstract arrows and creative use of camera angles.
Both shows also have a lead female character that dress as a boy.
Both have strong homosexual themes and jokes.
On the other hand Utena is much darker and also part action show, featuring a duel nearly every episode.
I believe if someone likes one of these shows it will carry over to the other (unless your against incest and rape)! read more
As I looked through the list of recommendations on Utena's list, I was surprised by the complete lack of Ouran High School Host club. First of all, I noticed extreme similarities in the art styles. Both are drawn very angular. Both center around a boyish female that (in the Utena Movie) are confused for male.
I realize there are some differences in the plots. But I just got this strong feeling that OHSHC was based of Utena.
Both feature a masculine girl for a main character, lots of male characters drawn to look attractive to female viewers, a big and beautifully built academy, and focus on friendship and growing up. Roses play a significant role in both stories, and nearly everybody has some decent character development.
Revolutionary Girl Utena and Ouran High School Host Club are both anime that critique shoujo, featuring a female lead that wears male clothing and strong themes of homosexuality.
The difference is that Ouran is a light-hearted parody, whereas Utena is a much darker and satirical in nature. Ouran is a simple work intending to make the audience laugh. Utena is a very dramatic and complex psychological work intending to make the audience think.
It's almost a yuri-orientied version of Ouran High School.Both of them has crossdressers(Haruhi for Ouran and Mariya for Maria + Holic).While Ouran features Bishônens and yaoi-like scenes,Maria+Holic features Bishôjos and yuri-like scenes but has much more dark humor,unlike Ouran High School
Remove Haruhi and Mori, remove the extreme rich school setting and make them all "commoners" and you´ll get Kimi to Boku. Just imagine Ouran without the boys being hosts but instead, Childhood friends, and with a more slow pacing. You´ll get a cheerful mixed blood blonde, a serious intelligent megane, funny twins, and a fluffy boy that likes cute things living their daily lives in extreme fun.
Also, although both center in friendship, both have hints of a love triangle (a straight one) XP
If you were fond of Kyouya and the twins in Ouran, you might get happy from watching Kimi to Boku because there are similar characters in it. It has a different vibe, but they're both school anime about the friendship between teenage boys.
If you're like me and would've rather been a member of the host club than a client, you'll probably like Kimi to Boku. This is a much more understated show, so the shenanigans aren't as crazy or off-the-wall as Ouran, but it has the same heart. The boys' personalities bounce off each other well, the comedy is silly and light-hearted, and it also delivers when tugging at your heartstrings. Ultimately, a solid show about a bunch of boys and their wacky high school life.
Just like fruits basket and Ouran High school host club, hana yori dango has that aspect of reverse harem. But hana yori dango and Ouran high school host club both are stories about a poor girl attending a prestigious school for rich kids. Both poor girls are independent and full of life so all the rich guys are interested in her life and spirit and the differentness. Both anime are wonderful and both are a must watch.
Both animes take place in an expensive private school, and the main characters are from the middle class. Both the main characters are female and the animes are about the main characters relationship with a group of boys that are considered the elite of the school.
Both are the same in that a normal girl entered into a school that normally only rich people can get into. Ouran High School Host Club is more fun and has a lot of comedy, whereas Hana Yori Dango focuses more on relationships and what may be more realistic if a girl were to enter an upper-class school. Ouran High School Host Club focuses on relationships as well but isn't as realistic as Hana Yori Dango.
One middle-class girl and her reverse-harem of insanely wealthy guys, coming right up! Ouran is intentionally a lot more gimmicky and silly to the point of ocassional parody when it comes to its approach, but Hanadan's funny moments are not exactly scarce.
There are pretty obvious similarities between these two anime. Both anime are romance shoujo where the mc is a poor girl studying in a school for rich kids. She will get herself involved in a group of male friends thus the start of her not so ordinay high school life.
They both have slow romances and are somewhat reverse harems. They were also both very funny. Although Ouran and Kamisama were about different things, they both focused on character and relationship building and growth. They are both fun and light animes, both really great mangas too, with satisfying endings. I liked Nanami (Kamisama) and Haruhi (Ouran) because neither of them were excessively girly. Though they are different, they were both very strong female leads.
The main character in Kamisama is also a poor and has many guys after her. Both romance comedies. If you're anything like me and have always loved Fruits Basket and Ouran High Host Club and have spent time looking for something that invokes similar feelings, this is the one!
Kamisama Kiss and Ouran High School Host Club are both shoujo animes. The main character in both animes have a lot it common. For example, at first they seem shy, and unsure of themselves, but they turn out to have strong personalities. Both Haruhi (Ouran High School Host Club) and Nanami (Kamisama Kiss) are surrounded by guys who care for them.
In general, the way both series evolve is similar, and they both have an identical comedic tone.
I loved both these anime series very much, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do !
If you liked Ouran you'll probably like Vampire Knight too! The humour, artstyle and coloring of Vampire Knight kinda reminds me of Ouran, but also the fact that it's centered about a girl and many boys around her. Anyway, I can really recommend them both!
Reverse harem, Shoujo, Bishounen, affluent characters, romance. Hanasakeru is more plot oriented though and has little or no comedy. Watch Hanasakeru Seishounen if good-looking and wealthy characters were things you found most captivating in Ouran High School Host Club.
A girl is "hired" by a boy to do some dirty work, just like Haruhi in the beginning of Ouran. Though, He is My Master is a bit more perverted and is the traditional Harem style anime they both have their emotional moments and their hilarious moments :]
They both have similar feeling to how the main character(s) have to pay off a debt for breaking things. They are forced to work and at first they both are very reluctant but eventually they become comfortable.
This show has been getting similarities from toradora to soul eater. I would say the relationship of shizuku and haru is kinda similar to the one that haruhi and tamaki share in ouran high school except you make tamaki and rebel instead of a prince.
Ouran and Tonari no Kaibutsu kun are both romance/comedy animes. Both of these animes are one of the most hilarious romance animes that i have seen.
The characters are different although the main characters have quite a few resemblances. For example Haruhi in Ouran is a smart girl who is focused on her studies and a strange guy wont leave her alone, this is the same with Shizuku from Tonari no Kaibutsu kun, she is also a hard working girl fully focused on her studies and a very strange boy wont leave her alone. But even though these two main female characters are similiar in that aspect, they are both different in so many different ways. Also both the main guy characters are good-looking but although Tamaki is popular, Haru is seen as a dangerous person by everyone adn finds it difficult to fit in.
All in all, people who enjoyed Ouran will definitely enjoy this anime and laugh for sure. This anime also has more romance than the Ouran anime. So yeah, watch it if you liked ouran, i guarantee you'll love it.  read more
Both have cold, "uncaring" female characters who love to study and a funny, male love interest who rarely, if ever studies but does his own thing. Both parties (in both anime) can be quite naive which makes for funny misunderstandings (true shoujo trope at work). Great secondary cast in both
Ouran and Meganebu's similarities include a bunch of boys creating a club and showing their daily club activties with lots of comedy. Although there's no romance in Meganebu, but there's a strong friendship just like in Ouran.
Cute boys doing absurd things.
Also, some of the Meganebu members has the members of Hostbu similar to them (Soma is just like Tamaki, Minabe is similar to Kyouya Ootori and Kamatani looks like Haninozuka)
Both series have a group of cute guys who do things to make women happy. The main characters of each are similar (despite the fact that Tamaki is much more spontaneous than Nokoru). CLAMP School Detectives has more "mystery," and Ouran has older characters, but chances are if you enjoyed one then you'll enjoy the other.
Bisco Hatori was almost definitely inspired by CLAMP School. Aside from the obvious Tamaki/Nokoru similarities, both are fun, sometimes silly series that take place at a huge school with branches for each age group. Both focus on a club made up of cute boys for girls.
The same situation where the Mc's were force to cross-dress even tought they are upright straights. However, since they got in such mountain of debt, they have no choice, the difference, one is a full 26 anime while the other one is a 4 minute omake.
The same plot where it involves the MC character who has incur a lot of debt and has to pay it off by being the club's underling, except the MC character involve in one anime was a girl dress as a boy, while in the other anime it is boy dress as a girl.
In my opinion, Toradora's artwork is better, but both animes present a group of colorful characters. The central plots concern love affairs between them, more specifically between the predestined couple of main characters and all the other members of the group. Cute and funny, with a touch of drama in both case.
Toradora! shares extremely similar themes to Ouran Host Club, as they are both comedic romances. The main difference between Toardora! and Ouran Host Club is that Toradora! delves deeper into each character's personality and gives the viewer a deeper insight into their personality than Ouran.
Overall though, I would highly recommend watching Ouran Host Club if you enjoy laughing a whole lots and getting engrossed into a short series.
Host Club is a romance story between a crossdressing girl and a rich boy with a bunch of homosexual supporting characters and that reminded me about how the supporting characters in Strawberry Panic are also yuri as hell...........
Both anime are shoujo and romantic themed.
Both series are reverse Harem: meaning a main girl character surrounded by a lot of beautiful awesome boys.
The atmosphere in both stories is very cool, plus both anime give a well developed background for every character which give to the pubblic a better understanding about their personalities.
Both share a very unique and pretty good art style for the character design.
Also, Starry Sky has a cast of many famous Seiyuus while Host Club is litterally a masterpiece for shoujo-genre lovers.
I highly recommend to watch both :3
Ouran is about a girl who ends up pretending to be a guy while Tenshi na Konamaiki is about a girl who used to be a guy, until a curse turned him into a girl. Both are hilariously funny series' about friendship with a touch of romance. Both have many heartwarming moments as well as crazy hi-jinks.
The characters in both also have similarities since they are parodies of commonly seen types of characters that at the same time are very lovable and dynamic. Ouran has the prince-type, the cool-type, the quiet one, the lolita, and the mischievous "boy's love" twins. Tenshi na Konamaiki has the female best friend, the macho man, the bishounen, the average high-school boy, and the pervert (who thankfully is downplayed).
I think anyone who liked one of these series' ought to give the other a chance. read more
Well they some similarities, ouran is about a girl pretending to be a guy to pay off his debt to the host club and tenshi na konamaiki is about a boy who got turned into a girl by magic.both heroine got some idiotic guys fallen in love with them making even more idiotic things...
they are both really fun to watch, so if you liked one of these you will also like the other one!
Both of the main characters aren't exactly normal female characters. In Ouran Koukou Host Club, Haruhi doesn't really care about appearances as a women and in Tenshi na Konamaiki Megumi doesn't want to become more feminine.
Both are very funny and certainly will be enjoyable if you found Tenshi na Konamaiki enjoyable.
Both anime's are set in a world full of richdom and welth. I think the art is also kind of similar, but I don't know if other people agree. Kuroshitsuji also has those random funny moments like Ouran High School Host Club. Here's a funny fact: Both main-characters (in Ouran High School Host Club it's Haruhi, and in Kuroshitsuji Ciel) are voiced by the same seiyuu! Ouran High School Host Club & Kuroshitsuji both have shounen-ai hinted themes.
Although Kuroshitsuji is obviously much darker than Ouran, they share a similar type of comedy. If you're feeling a little depressed after finishing Kuro, Ouran is the cure with it's bright, funny cast and ridiculous escapades that will leave you in stitches. If you have just watched Ouran, Kuro has a darker theme and more intriguing storyline, but also has memorable characters and slapstick humour.
When I watched, immediately comes to my mind Ouran Koukou Host Club image. First the "Prince", then the "Intellectual", after that the "Big guy" and finally the "Childish" one with a "teddy bear" in his hands. What's the difference? This is not a club, they are vampires. Maybe I forget the twins... but well, until now is the same.
While the story of these two anime are fairly different, they both share a main character who often dresses and acts like you would expect of the opposite gender, another main who is quite carefree but very passionate when they do care about something, as well as both generally taking place in a high class/wealthy environment. Character interactions along with the comedy are also very similar between these two anime.
the interactions between Chihiro,Madoka, and Keiichiro remind me of Haruhi, Tamaki, and Kyoya, so the comedy and feel of the shows can come off as similar.Also both set mainly in high-class western style location.
Shounen Maid and Ouran High School Host club is very similar character wise. The leads are very similar in which they are very independent, meet wacky people, and have a similar background story. Their life after a major change is pretty similar as well. The wacky characters that surround them have similar characteristics. The storyline is very similar. A kid who lost his mother is thrown into a whirlwind change, discovering that he has a pretty well off uncle. On the other hand, the kid wants to follow in her mother who passed away's foot steps (occupation wise), so attends a high society high school and got thrown into a whirlwind change. Plot and Character wise is pretty similar. But Shounen Maid is more about family and everyday life while Ouran is more about cheesy comedic stunts and romance.  read more
When i saw this one, it reminded me of OHSHC in a way, but its hilarious, and both Haruhi and Saito are both kinda clueless of the people around them (like how Tamaki obviously likes Haruhi (but Tamaki doesnt know it) and how Louise likes Saito (but doesnt know it and tries to deny it)). Did i mention they're both hilarious?? And perverted, in a way.
Though they are set in entirely different worlds.. they both carry the same sort of vibe. They both deal with the whole rich verses commoner issue, also both have similar characters types. You might not see it at first, but while I was watching Zero I kept thinking "Wow! This is strange, but this reminds me of Ouran."
Your lost,confused, and your forced to work?!! What? Relate to characters in this anime series as 1 person is "forced" to work. There`s no such things as coinsidence, only fate. Fate can be cruel, but you just might like it. The characters comes to life because they are soo human like, hilarious!
Does this website remind anyone of facebook or is it just me?
If you like the reverse harem thing and you wouldn't mind it so much if Haruhi were actually a boy...I guess this series would be for you. This series doesn't quite reach Ouran's height in brilliant characterizations or comedic wit but it does have its charms.
Both of these show have a similar type of comedy. They are both mainly character driven, with characters that are either stereotypes or brake the stereotype. While Angel beats is on the heaver side, there are episodes of both shows where it is just fun being with the characters.
First off, let me just say that both Hayate no Gotoku and Ourah High School Host Club are zany, random, and absolutely hilarious shows. I'd say they're a definite must watch if you're into comedies.
How are they similar?
Hayate no Gotoku has our hero, Ayasaki Hayate, who becomes a "combat butler" to pay off his debt to Nagi, who paid off his outrageous debt to some Yakuza; Yakuza of whom his parents borrowed a ton of money from, lost said money in gambling and crazy dreams, and then decided to skip town and leave Hayate behind with the debt. Boy is HnG a whacky show...
As for Ouran, our heroine is Fujioka Haruhi, who has a debt to pay off as well. Commoner Haruhi accidentally broke an 8 million yen vase belonging to the her prestigious high school's host club. And she's gotta pay it off by way of cross-dressing as a guy in the host club after school. read more
Both are about high school students owing a debt to rich kids, and both the main characters are clueless about the people that have crushes on them. Although Haruhi in Ouran High School Host Club has no choice but to cross-dress, Hayate from Hayate the Combat Butler (Hayate no Gotoku) is forced to cross-dress at alternate times by his master and his master's maid (I find that somewhat similar). Both of these are very random, and have awkward situations, although Ouran High School Host Club is shojo and Hayate the Combat Butler is shonen, I think they're both great. And hilarious. XD
In both anime, the protagonist that is poor is forced to work to rich characters in order to pay off a debt. There is also a clear distinction between the poor protagonist and rich characters, which is used for comedic effect. Hayate no Gotoku could be considered a harem, while Ouran High School Host Club is a reverse harem. Mostly in Ouran High School Host Club, and a bit in Hayate no Gotoku, there is a cross-dressing element.
Both these anime focus on the relationships of a group of people (this is probably true for most anime though): in Ouran it is the 'Host Club' members while in Working it is the part time workers at the family restaurant 'Wagnaria'. Comedy, a variety of characters with distint personalities and quirks, a slow and comfortable pace and episodes following the daily life of the characters (in the Host Club and in the family restaurant) without a strong plot (this is more true for Working!!) are similar elements in both. Ouran has more character development and shows the pasts of the characters while Working!! has a lighter focus on this. Working may seem to have a lot of repitition - Takanashi always gets hit by Inami, chief is always serving the manager - but this is not really a negative aspect because it just shows the daily life at the restaurant which is mostly unchanging. However, we do learn more about the characters, they do develop a little, but that is not really the main focus of the anime.
In general both are fun to watch. You may not necssarily enjoy the other if you liked one, but there is a probability of doing so. Try a few episodes in any case. read more
Ouran highschool or Koukou Host Club has the same relationship (except for the love part) from the girls in Working!! And Haruhi in Ouran. Except Ouran is much more in romance, but i can guarantee if you love Working!! You'll fall head over heels for Ouran!! The comedy in Ouran is priceless as well as the misunderstandings in Working!! The biggest difference besides the romance balance is that while Working!! is held in Wagnaria, a family resturaunt, Ouran is in a prestigious elite, highschool that has their own host club, but instead oa whisky, they have fancy tea and very expensive tea sets. one last thing, is that Ouran can have a few serious moments, but its actually all together a perfect anime for anyone to watch! read more
Both titles are romantic comedies about a group of high school students who get up to all sorts of shenanigans. Also, not really a major plot point, but both involve a cross-dressing main character (Working!! less so than Ouran Koukou Host Club, but trust me, it's still there if you stick with it.) Both are very funny and 100% guaranteed to cheer you up on a bad day!
comedy is main focus. similar humour, both extremely funny.
both uses music effectively to emphasis particular feelings, as well as to increase the mood ~ in a masterpiece kind of way.
both have unique characters, which have excellent developments, having elements of drama when necessary. brilliant interactions between the characters as well, with hints of romance.
both are school slice of lifes.
BOTH ARE MASTERPIECES!!!!
Star Driver is just like Ouran, but with mecha fights. Especially in episodes 4 and 5, where the show shamelessly steals some of Ouran's comic devices. (Fantasy sequences with roses all over the place and snarky captions.) Both series are made by Studio BONES.
Both series have the same humor. And if you liked tamaki from ouran then you will like Edgar from hakushaku too and of course if you liked edgar you will love tamaki. Both animes made me giggle all the time when I watched it. And I fell in love with both the main characters.
Same art style, same kind of humor, same surrealistic tendencies (although Mawaru Penguindrum goes waaay further down that route), same heavy uses of symbolism, same avantgarde feeling when watching both, both present way more depth tahn it looks and both make heavy use of implicit taboo relationships.
A lot of similarities, Mawaru Penguindrum is a better show overall, and it gets more dramatic (and harder to follow) than Ouran Koukou Host Club at it's end, but if you liked one you will definetly like the other.
In both, the main character is forced into a school club and harem that they do not wish to be part of. Despite being different genders, both main characters are not really into the antics that the club members continuously crack up.
Ouran has more character development and romance, while SYD is comedy focused. However, the hilarity that ensues in both series is more or less the same.
both of them involve clubs and perversions. only diffrence is that Seitokai Yakuindomo is reverse harem while Ouran high school host club is Harem. They both have enjoyable humour, perversions, unique members of the opposite sex, super genius members.
Both anime have cute guy characters that are mischievous, smart, narcissistic, and meanies that will keep you entertained and wanting more all the time. You wont regret watching and it will make you laugh with a small taste of romance.
It has a harem feel to it as well. In Yumerio there's 3 boys and 1 girl.
In Ouran there's more but it's the same thing. The girl ends up with one of the
boys in the end. (If you want to know for Yumeiro, you have to watch the second
season but from the first it's pretty obvious who she'll end up with.) Comedy in both
and both girl protagonists are determined, hard workers. Enjoy~
Both series involve a young girl suddenly thrust into a world full of wealthy young men. Both are reverse harems with wacky antics and a crazy cast, however Brothers Conflict takes itself seriously whereas Ouran is purely comedic.
They have a very similar feel to them as two people (Haruhi and Teppei) are thrust into the world of rich folk and parties and such. The two may be TOTALLY different people, but at the start of their journeys into the world of riches they are both extremely worried at what would be next to happen.
In all, they are similar anime and If you like one of them you will like the other.
Kimi ni Todoke is a very sweet and cute anime. The story relies on the building of the relationships and leaves you smiling. However, it isn't as funny as Ouran High School Host Club but i definitely would recommend it.
they are both based around romance, and though they have different storylines, the general feel (in some aspects), comedy, character development are similar. both brilliant slice-of-life drama romantic comedies which is different from the usual harem. both how slice-of-lifes should really be like. also, morita = Tamaki (to an extent)
The plot is VERY similar: main char. enrolls in an elite school and meets very interesting and good-looking guys, and tries to fit in. The only difference is, Ouran's main character is a girl, and GH's is a guy.
They are both cute, crazy animes.These animes are suitable for all ages .And believe me watching both anime will be a great experience
If you like the character of the boys in' Ouran' then you will definetly those in gakuen heaven (the boys are even cuter)also. And yeah, the art ,cuteness and innocence are even better in gakuen heaven than 'ouran' however Ouran has much more comedy in it.
There is a great similarity in both animes. Both animes puts you in the same mood. In Ouran high school host club, the story is about a girl surrounded by a pack of crazy and funny rich guys while 'Gakuen heaven' is a boys X boys anime in which a boy named Keita is surrounded by strange, funny,and crazy boys who are elder to him.  read more
Both are absolutely perfect and hilarious parodies of typical shoujo genres, Ouran of otome/reverse-harems and Binan of the magical girl warrior genre (like Sailor Moon). Ouran does this by having an unusual heroine who takes things in stride and just won't play along with the shoujo script. Binan does this by replacing the usual middle school girl heroines with high school BOYS, who then point out every bit of ridiculousness about what is happening while still going along with it. Oh, and they are also practically naked in a bath house about 50% of the time and constantly and intentionally tease Boys Love between the characters. Both wholly embrace the silliness inherent in the premises behind their respective shows, although Ouran is known to have some genuine drama occasionally and Binan is pure laugh your ass off comedy from start to finish. If you like pretty boys, funny banter and humor, watching characters embarrass themselves and analysis of shoujo stereotypes, then look no further. Liking one will just about guarantee you'll like the other. read more
This is a bit of a stretch but I'd recommend AkaYona if you liked OHSHC. Both main characters are strong female leads who want to stand up for themselves. However, they are surrounded by a group of males who want to do nothing more than to protect them. However both main characters are stubborn, and refuse to let the guys do everything for them. The males are hesitant, but they are happy to comply, and respect them and their decisions.
-All the guys are all so different you are sure to like at least one of them
-Both girls end up less girly than the average girl
-Both have a main guy that is obviously attracted to the heroin but they don't really know it
-Both are amazing comedies that are super fun to watch!!!
- similarly enticing /romance/, with two individually /lovable mains/
- same sense of /humour/ that ties in with the relationships, very enjoyable, with a /friend-family/ feel that sucks you in
- around the same number of episodes, so /similar format/, but different story
- very /unique music/ and themes
- /not too serious/ most of the time, but doesn't take away from the plot
~ In comparison, based slightly more on /attitudes to class, funny stereotypes, and romance/, slightly tongue in cheek at times
~ ever-so-slightly more slapstick
~ has one or two /filler episodes/, rather than a /final 'special'/
Gakuen Alice has the same silly sense of humor as OHSHC. The characters are quite different, but, I dunno, I find that these two series just go hand in hand. If you read the Gakuen Alice manga as well as the OHSHS manga, you'll find that there are some characters from both stories that have quite dark pasts. Both heroins, Mikan and Haruhi, are loved by a variety of different characters. They themselves, however, are mostly clueless to this love. MOSTLY. ;)
They're both very cute, very funny, and definitely worth a look.
Both of the anime are about school. the school that is shown in the both anime are the private school which only for the nobles.But there is one poor girl enter that school.Both of them have the best comedy ever. So everytime you watch them you will laugh non stop..haha ^_^
The main characters in both animes starts at new school, special schools where the main characters are different from the others on the school, they have a secret, there are a lot of humor in both of the animes, the the main characters both animes join clubs :P and (this is the last one, i promise) they are both about love.
Haruhi seems not to care about being mistaken for a boy and is happy to play along. Hourou Musuko takes a more serious look at kids in this situation. It's not a comedic series, but it's extremely touching.
Hideaki Asaba a man who's background grows roses and who loves entertaining ladies... and who we love to laugh at. If you liked this character from His and Her Circumstances, You will love Ouran a show filled with " rich young men with way to much time on their hands who entertain beautiful young giels who also have too much time." His and Her Circumstances is a light Romance, Slice of Life, Drama and Ouran is Comedy Parody, they still have this in common!
I'm pretty sure many of you have either watched this or have heard of this anime/manga. Both OHSHC and Sakamoto Desu Ga have school settings and lots of comedy. There is also a character in OHSHC that looks just like Sakamoto and shares his "cool-ness".
Both main male lead (Fujisaki/Bossun & Tamaki) are somewhat similar:
-They formed a club with similar goal (Host Club has a more specific goal though).
-They like to motivate others.
-The club members respected them so much (although sometimes they make fun of them lol).
-Both extremely care about their friends.
-Both have similar personalities: (Easy going, cocky and easily irritated).
-Both like to do funny stuff which make them look stupid.
I know that a lot of people like the Ouran host club and that there is no season two.
If you want to see something similar to get rid of the empty feeling, watch Gakuen Handsome. They both take place in a high school, have a great usage of jokes, nice art style and chins. Gakuen Handsome is airing at the moment, that means that you can watch and enjoy it every week. I really recommend Gakuen Handsome.
I don't know why, but everyone person that I know that watched ouran loved noragami. The show has some really good comedy and great characters. It also has some tragedy and romance (not too much but it's alright) I would try it!
For starters both MC cross dress though while Izumi is a guy Haruhi is a girl.
Rei and Kyouya have the same characters and so do Tamaki and Shougo.
They are both comedies and both have to do with the lives of the rich in a way since in Ouran they deal with kids if millionaires in Love Stage the main character is a son of a show business family.
But yeah they both are romcoms that will put a smile on your face.
The appeal of these series stems largely from their absurd, over-the-top humour. However, underneath their silliness, they are also heartwarming love stories. These are fun romantic comedies for anybody to enjoy!
Both animes are reverse harem, they give of a nice comedy feeling, and a little bit of romace. OHC focus's on a host club while UNPS focus's on their music. But if you like one or another you'll enjoy this.
Both feature an introverted protagonist, who joins a club, and makes new friends. While Oreki Houtarou is more into solving mysteries than serving wealthy ladies, if you're like me and love Ouran for its characters and humor, Hyouka is a good choice. And of course, there is a hint of romance too.
They both are about school. Aikatsu is about school girls and Ouran is about school guys. They both have beautiful special effects. And they both have a beautiful character. So if you like Ouran, you should watch Aikatsu, if you like Aikatsu, you should watch Ouran!
Light-hearted romantic comedies involving the rich and a "commoner" in a semi-harem based school setting. While some jokes are shared/similar, each has their own separate characters and story. What separate's these anime's the most (thus far: Shomin Sample still airing) is being that Shomin Sample also contains some ecchi scenes.
They are both really humoristic, sometimes perverted humor in different situations. Jin in Kannagi are a bit of a pervert, and so are the twins in ouran with their brotherly love. I really love the humor in both animes! they've got 10 points both from me! <3
One boy (with OHSHC it's a girl) coming into the lifes of other, quite important boys. I think Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club and Yuuta from Marginal Prince are the same- they try to help other people out, talk to them, get to know their past (and sometimes future), warms one another's heart, help them sort their problems out. It may not be the same setting, but OHSHC was the first other tv serie that sprang into my mind when I watched Ouran High School Host Club. You can always watch a trailer on youtube if you're not sure whether you'll like the serie. read more
The waiters in Ristorante not only capture the hearts of their customers like the boys of the Ouran Host Club, but they also all have their own unique attributes despite most of them wearing glasses. Nicoletta, like Haruhi, questions the strange yet entrancing ways of these gentlemen and eventually becomes fond of the warm atmosphere surrounding them and the restaurant they call home. If you want a more European version of Ouran without all the frills and sparkles (and a bit of pasta, too), then give Ristorante Paradiso a try.
Well, the first episode started on a school... there are lots of bishies trying to get to one girl. This girl, angelique, is quite dense. She wants to protect the orb hunters or those somewhat like guardians against those evil spawn... even though some of the bishies will risk their lives for her... she kinda like the lead girl here in ouran, haruhi, doesn't care bout herself only of other's well being...
Well, there are lots of bishies trying to get to one girl. This girl, angelique, is quite dense and a little clumsy with her emotions and compassions that sometimes she makes the guys hopelessly romantic for her. She wants to protect the universe and those somewhat like guardians against those evil spawn... even though some of the bishies will risk their lives for her... she kinda like the lead girl here in ouran, haruhi, doesn't care bout herself only of other's well being...
-the comedy is really similar, you'll definitely be laughing
-the many hot guys that surround the main character
-in Ouran, you really get to know the characters past their surfaces, and the same goes for Shugo Chara!
-only difference is that it's magical girl. Romance is similar though, the guys are hotttttt!!!
As I have said in the first season, both are reverse harems. Main protogonist is dense towards romantic relaionships AND they don't bow down to the guys :D If you liked Saiunkoku Monogatari II, I think you'll like Ouran just as much, or even more! XD
This is an alternative idea in which a boy is pretending to be a girl. It has a different story line and is not as good and popular as Ouran Host Club in terms of quality, but the plots give you a somewhat same amusement. Give it a try ^_~
Ouran is very different from Ginban, it's a bit more mature as well as more slice-of-life-ish. But I still find the humor in both stories very similar. They both are funny, sweet, romantic shows. Plus, the main female character in both is very strong!
If you fell in love with tamaki (or any other host for that matter)then you'll 100% like howl.Even the love story is similar (haruhi=sophie)
If you dont know anything about this howl's moving castle and probably you've seen some pictures and your not going to think twice,thrice or go over it 100x if you dont watch it you'll regret.
they are both awesome comedies and both are in like a school setting and both have fantastic chracters.
also the characters/character interactions sort of like similar or something cause that reminds me of each show too.
Although these two are different by reality and fantasy they both include the misadventures of friends and are both quite enjoyable. Both stories are centered around two girls of both which the guy falls for.
Probably more people have seen Ouran High School Host Club than I My Me! Strawberry Eggs, but if you haven't seen it, it's about a girl persuaded into posing as a guy at school. Otherwise the guys in the host club are definitely of the shounen type because they too frequently cross the gender line. The show is a hilarious comedy satirizing the whole boys love genre among other things. Even if you didn't like Strawberry Eggs, you might like this!
Similar character types among the main group. You have the twins, the glasses-wearing guy with short dark hair with the occasional short fuse, the exuberant blond guy, and uh . . . okay, so there isn't really a genderbending person in Kimi to Boku, there IS a guy who's a tad on the feminine side when it comes to interests, and who originally had long hair and got confused for a girl in the first half of the first season. Also similar humor type, though for Kimi to Boku it is much more subtle and understated.
Well, if you like the kind of anime that combines comedy with a slice of life, then the Aria series is for you, though the themes are completely different, I found that it appealed to much of the same things... An extremely prevalent and light sense of humor, but is serious when it should be.
The story is very similar because it revolves around a central character(who actually kindda look alike) surrounded by members of the opposite sex; also, the main story isn't love, but it seems to involve all of the characters.
If you're the type of anime lover that likes stories set in caffeteria, these two are good for you. Ouran High School Host Club has characters hosting a cafe only for fun while Ame-iro Cocoa has characters who are really working in a cafe. In addition to the way the anime is colorfully attractive, it's great to watch bishounens like these, putting aside the length of episodes and the plots. It's a great anime.
The female protagonists are very similar. They are strong, funny and yet vulnerable all at the same time.
The relationships they enter into with the male characters are also great because they develop more naturally over time. They are not sappy or fake but there is a lovely tenderness and protectiveness towards one another that was great and heartfelt.
So overall witty and lovable characters, great stories, nice artwork..
Both Mimami ke and Ouran will make you laugh time and again. They are funny, can be poignant at times, are mostly random though Ouran does have something of a plot. Though they are not entirey similar (no anime can be), if you like one then there is a high chance you will enjoy the other.
You just gonna die laughing watching either of them.Gto reckless jokes and action(by onizuka) plus random jokes(and very lovable characters that develop nicely) of ouran == pure fun!!! And of-course both of them are about school. Dont miss!!
Well, I think that since Tamaki Suou from Ouran High School Host Club talks and talks and talks, he could possibly out-talk Watashi from Tatami Galaxy in terms of monologues. Both shows as a result of these two characters fill the silence with a whole lot of "Blahblahblah" in a very amusing way--either over-hyper or over-monotone--whatever it may be these two individuals easily make the Japanese language seem so dang art-y and word-y. Watashi and Tamaki, also, have the worst time trying to successfully woo the girls of their dreams (Akashi and Haruhi, respectively) who seem to be single, smart, and generally "normal" if not a little hard to approach. Both shows do not really focus on a successful romantic love story...more like the hi-jinks that come in being young, awkward, and failing; it is a miracle if they have a lucky moment or two that fulfills what they've wished for deep down. The side characters are very important to the main characters; however, the main characters Tamaki and Watashi sometimes dismiss them as not as important as their love interest or whichever narrow or broad interest they are pursuing.  read more
Both main protagonist girls pretend to be a boy. Both main boy and girl fall in love. RomeoXJuliet is more dramatic, less comedic, and less light than Ouran, though. Ouran is mostly comedy, as to RomeoXJuliet is more of Drama. But, if you liked how the girl pretends to be a boy and then falls in love kind of set, then you would enjoy this one/ the other. (:
Both are mixture of romance and comedy. The difference is that Suoh Tamaki's (one of the male main character) personality is quite similar to Nodame's, and that Fujioka Haruhi is almost like the female side of Chiaki.
Both revolves around school.
They are both cute, crazy animes.These animes are suitable for all ages .And believe me watching both anime will be a great experience.
Ouran revolves more around school boys and one girl(dressed as a boy)
Gokujou Seitokai has several tomboys who govern over their school (There is also a mad puppet in this anime). They do several exciting and funny things.The story is simple and crazy... not serious type
