Though nowhere near as good, Sekaiichi follows Junjou's style of storytelling by showing three couples all somewhat related to each other. It's more of the same, but the relationships are far less varied which is disappointing in my opinion. However, if you like one you may like the other just as much.
Both animes are about boy love. They both show 3 couples. In both animes, in all the couples, one of them works in the literature business. Sometimes it's an author, others are editors and others are literature professors.
Both look at three different couples, and their relationships as they progress. They are both Yaoi, if you didn't know already, and are really cute! They are by the same author (Shungiku Nakamaru), so the art is basically the same. I suppose Skaiichi Hatsukoi can be considered as a bit of a spin off of Junjou Romantics, because the storylines are similar, again, with them following three different couples. Both are really good, and if you liked one, you will definitely like the other!
Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and other anime can be seen here: http://www.myanimelinks.com/full-anime-list/
Junjou Romantica is similar to Sekaiichi Hatsukoi because both animes deal with same sex couples whom often misunderstand each other that lead to funny situations, both these animes deal with younger men with older more experienced men i.e. college students with teachers/authors so the characters have the same reactions in both of them, similar situations in the same environments that makes you think you have already seen a scene like this when watching one anime and then the other but no matter what anime you watch, the differences make one as enjoyable to watch as the other without it being too repetitive. Also, the comedy cuteness of each relationship in Junjou Romantica gives the viewer the exact same feelings when watching Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, it makes you either lol or go "awww" ^^. JR made me want all the couples to get together, to get over their misunderstandings and whilst SH has a bit more drama to it (the main couple has a shared past they need to get over whilst JR main couple have just met) it made me feel the same way. JR isnt creepy at all to watch, with only hints of love/lust between couples and the art of the men are has handsome and appealing to the eye in JR as they are in SH, so I strongly recommend that if you have watched one of these series and enjoyed it, you will definitely enjoy watching the other.  read more
They both have similar plots but Junjou Romantica is about 2 peope living together, and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is about 2 people who live next to each other and work together, but in Junjou Romantica, Usagi works as a Writer and Misaki has no job. But they are both filled with the "What going to happen next" feeling as you watch
•both are of the yaoi genre, and are both done by the same producer/company/author/art style.. etc
•both animes focus on 1 pairing, and then broadens the area and focuses on the couples around them in either the workplace, old friends, acquaintances, family members etc
•animes have the sex knowingly shown or just hints that it will lead to it, but in JR its pretty more graphic imo SH has toned the sex to a minimum and not shown as much leading up to it.
•both animes have different feels about them, one may seem more realistic/legit than the other, and the other a whole fantasy like it will never happen.
•both contain the malexmale romantic vibe and its very sweet, between the 3 couples shown in each anime, showing different love problems and history's
•they are both very much enjoyable to watch if you are a yaoifangirl :P, but for person who just likes romances and has an open mind about yaoi/yuri in general, you might find both of these anime enjoyable aswell.
Both animes are shounen-ai and from the same creators with the same art. The series follows multiple couples like Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and the characters are very similar. Also characters from Sekaiichi Hatsukoi make cameo appearances in Junjou Romantica. ;) If you enjoyed this series then Junjou Romantica should also be good for you.
They are written by the same person. They are both are BL anime, so if you're not into that, don't watch them. JR and SH both involve writers/editors. I enjoyed watching both of them, and would recommend them.
same author, similar drawing and story style, similar atmosphere/feeling
like MayilaWong I like SH better - because of the more natural seeming relationships (also more originality), the environment is mostly a manga publishing house and you can see the connections between the characters/couples
These two anime shows have similar art work. The coloring, the morale/plot/story is kinda similar but it has its differences. And if you look carefully, you may even find like a connection through the names and posters and stuff like that. And they both have like three different couples' stories about how they met and fell in love and how they overcome hardships that go their way, if they overcome them.
Both involve multiple stories where all the characters know each other
Both involve the yaoi genre
Both involve characters refusing to admit that their in love
Both involve characters living together/next to each other
Both series are adaptations from Shungiku Nakamura, they are both yaoi, and the art is similar as well. There are also 3 story lines, and there is a connection to books in both series. if you liked Junjou then you're going to love this one just as much, because you'll be laughing and crying with this too.
Love! Love! Love everywhere! It's not easily found though. The protagonists always try their best in order to gain the partner's affection but are easily turned down. Though, it changes a bit throughout but is still present in a way. Moving on, both the lead protagonists are associated with manga-making or in other words manga industry. Good laughs ,good drama ,good ost ...a good watch!
First of all, Junjou Romantica and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi were created by the same person. They're both
shounen-ai and follow 3 different main couples. They both have the same cutesy art style. Junjou Romantica's and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi's characters even come across each other too. You might see a Sekaiichi Hatsukoi character appear in Junjou Romantica. The two are both great and I love them.
*created by the same people (the manga was written by the same author)
*both have their characters involved in either the creation or selling of manga
*some of the characters from Junjou Romantica are in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi (and vice versa)
*both yaoi and comedic
If you love yaoi...this is perfect! These are similar because the artwork and the idea of featuring 3 couples in the 1 anime, but each couple has their own story. In these anime, you can see how these shows intertwine with each other which is a cool factor to both of these shows.
Both of these anime are BL which I love although I enjoyed Sekarrchi Hatsukoi a little better than Junjou Romantica. For those who would like to know, both of these are created from two different manga that the same author wrote.
Meet our main character. He's a spirited young fellow who's working/wants to be working in the field of manga. He had a fateful encounter with another man in the past, and after many years of separation, their paths cross once more... only for him to suddenly get a good look at his admirer's less savoury sides. Sexy comedy hijinks ensue, there's also at least one secondary couple to take the heat off the main dudes every once in a while.
As in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, Love Stage!!'s two main characters met when they were younger and they had some kind of connection. They meet again a few years later by pure luck (a Commercial in LS and a Publishing Company in SH).
Both series are also related since Onodera Ritsu and Takano Masamune work in a Manga Publishing Company and Sena Izumi from Love Stage!! aspires to be a Mangaka.
has characters that isn't into boyxboy but after hanging out with each other..they slowly falls for each other. although sekai has more "force" into making the main character to actually fall in love with him.
Sekai has probably the most similarities to love stage. in both story telling and relationships, but there arent many Yaoi of this sort out there.
Well, someone has to recomend this sooner or later anyways.
First of all, both of them are Yaoi(Boys Love).
They are from the same studio which also the reason their artwork is so (and even too) much similar. Specially main characters of both series (Ritsu and Kotarou) are *the same*.
Both have cute romance in it, story is different thought.
Anyways if you liked any of them, give the other a try.
-They share a producer
-Same art style
You can tell that they have the same producer just by looking at it. The art style is the same, and the characters' personalities are very similar too.
Hybrid Child is short and sad, but if you liked one, you'll like the other!
They have a well developed plot line that the creator has taken much time and effort into. There are a lot if intense and emotional feelings brought up. Emotions such as: extreme love, shyness, and even embarrassment. The anime series themselves are also drawn very well.
Not because of the boys love (although some people might like so see the two main characters of Bakuman as more than friends), but because both of the series take you behind the scenes of creating manga.
While Bakuman focuses on the creation of manga from the mangaka's point of view, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi focuses on the editor's point of view for a Shoujo magazine. Both have an underlying romance, although it is more of the focus in Sekaiichi Hasukoi. Note: Sekaiichi is a more mature anime and is shounen-ai.
They are about creating manga. While in Bakuman the main protagonists are teen mangakas in a shounen magazine, in Sekaiichi they're 20-year-old editors of a shoujo one.
Both show the pression of having to guide a mangaka/accepting the opinion of editors, the stress that it comes with both jobs and having to meet a short deadline.
In Bakuman romance is underlying so as to center in the the manga they create and the rivalry between the mangakas while in Sekaiichi is more focused in the romantic relationships between the characters.
They have a similar feel to them, partly because of the animation, partly because the characters in one sometimes have brief encounters with characters in the other. Watching one after having watched the other is like a 3rd and 4th season bringing you other couples' love stories to fall in love with.
Both shows have the same style of comedy. Both are romcoms revolving around a shoujo mangaka setting. Both have three couples as well as supporting characters. They have the same atmosphere overall - light and cutesy. The main characters are very similar, as they both get embarrassed easily and have a crush on someone.
The first time I watched Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun the feeling I got was similar to Sekaiichi Hatsukoi both center around romance and comedy with Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun more towards comedy.They also revolve around the shoujo genre with the main characters in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi working in a shoujo department while Nozaki kun from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is a shoujo author. If you enjoyed one than chances are you will enjoy the other.They will make you laugh and give you a uplifting and feel good feeling.
Both Shounen Ai (plus a bit yaoi - though it's just "knowing what'll happen or what's happening, than actually seeing it).
Both amazing cute couples.
Tight Rope "only" has one couple, since it is just a 2ep. OVA, and it is more about protecting each other, than the "daily life" problems in Sekaiichi.
Both are amazing :D
Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is a lot like Doukyuusei in that they're both about a first love between two men, and the difficulties the characters have coming to terms with the relationship, jealousy, and overcoming all of that. The main character's voice actor, Kusakabe Hikaru, even voices in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, though not an overly major role. Overall it's rather cute, dramatic, and even frustrating at times, but definitely a very good shounen ai.
Junjou Romantica would also be a good recommendation, too. If you love yaoi and yuri, you should definitely watch all 4 animes; Maria-sama ga Miteru, Strawberry Panic, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and Junjou Romantica. They all revolve around 3-4 couples. Anyway.
- Both anime's couples have a dominating spouse
- Both anime's couples have a somewhat sexual relationship.
- Both anime's couples have a spouse protecting the other.
There's so much more, but no way can I list all of them. The only difference is the gender, Strawberry Panic has women, and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi has men. And the age difference, too...however these two animes have a similarity no doubt.
First of all, KWMS and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi are similar because of their genre (Romance & Comedy) and because of the atmosphere that exists at some moments. Second of all, although KWMS is shoujo while Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is shounen-ai, I believe that the main points are the same:
- in a certain couple, there is one member that is teasing the other, but also helps and takes good care of them (in KWMS is Usui and in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is Takano)
- in the same couple, there's the other member who doesn't want to accept that he/she is in love with the other guy (in KWMS is Misaki and in Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is Onodera)
- in both animes, the person who doesn't want to accept the love with the other guy says that he/she doesn't need any help and tries to rely on the other member as little as possible. However, eventually, they always get nervous around the other member and they realize that their hearts are not strong enough to resist around him
In the end, I would say they are both great animes, I loved the time spent watching them. So, if you already watched one of them, please give the other one a try, I think you won't be disappointed (you might see the similarities about their genre and the atmosphere within the 3rd-4th episode). read more
The main characters in "Sekaiichi" and "Ikoku" have both fell in love with a member of the same sex and are confussed about it as they battle with there emotions but whatever they do they still can't help but love that person.
Aside from being yaoi, of course, both share a very similar boss x employee relationship. In Sekaiichi, they are manga editors, and in Yebisu they work with design. However, Yebisu's animation is nowhere near as good as Sekaiichi's, and sometimes movement seems like something out of a yaoi game.
It is similar because two people used to be in a relationship of some sort, one says or does something to make the other feel betrayed, and so that person gets mad and decides to break up, but then later they get reunited after being in the same line of work (SH it's manga editing, SB it's entertainment). What's different is that in SH, Ritsu coincidentally meets Takano, but in SB the girl follows him to get revenge. They're both really good :)
