Both have incredibly similar plot lines with a male high schooler trying to win over a male-fearing female classmate. However, Bitter Virgin is longer and seems to have a deeper plot line, whereas Asa mo is a quicker read with a more direct story.

Both are really tragic romance manga. In both manga, the main girl has been raped, which leads to similar events. The main guy is there to help them. Both manga have this bittersweet feel to them.

The plight of both female protoganist is sort of similar. Though Aikawa's[BV] plight for me is much worse, Juri's[WnSnJ] character is sort of more believable for me.

Both have deep storylines and emotions, with both of the main characters deeply involved in the story. Drama and romance genres. Bitter Virgin is more focused on the girl while Hana no Namae, the boy (not that sure).

- Same dramatic and serious ambiance : Life deal about auto-mutilation and suicid though, then Virgin bitter talk about rapes, and sexual abuses (pedophelia) - Ijime, bullying, both protagonists must bearing it. - Romance : Life is softest than Virgin bitter.

This is essentially like a male version of Bitter Virgin, it is about a normal boy who is raped by his pedophile step-father. It is not graphic sexually and this is a really good story, but be warned about the realness of this before you read it. It is not yaoi, or BL - it is not about love, but about someone dealing with being raped and abused by someone who has power over them, and his feelings of insanity because of what is happening to him. It is psychologically deep going into how abuse breaks a person's psyche and  read more

The circumstances and their responses to it are very different but both girls are raped at a young age, however the treatment of that is very different. While in No Free Time to Get Dirty - the girl thinks that it was her own fault so she doesn't tell anyone she was raped, the Girl in Bitter Virgin tries but isn't believed. Both mangas deal with difficult subjects and mature matters but No Free Time to Get Dirty is much more sexual as her response to it is thinking that since everyone thinks she bad she must be and  read more

Both manga series have the romance element that are expressed in a more realistic or mature way. In other words, both manga rises above the typical fanservice and focuses more on realistic romance. Both manga series does have comedy and drama. Both manga series protagonist eventually takes a liking into the main female protagonist after certain circumstances. Both manga are enjoyable for those who some realistic drama.

reportRecommended by ForgedHero
These two are completely different mangas with a whole different plots but one thing they have is that they make you cry for hours. Both of them are a masterpiece in my opinion. If you haven't read these two mangas that mean your life had been under a rock. Now push that rock away and read these wonderful, amazing, beautiful mangas.

Bitter Virgin and Yesterday wo Utatte contains a lot of drama. As for stories that tells romance and youth, expect story angles to involve relationships. Bitter Virgin is known to take on some more mature themes while Yesterday wo Utatte is more lighthearted. However, both series shares its experience to readers who are interested in seeing realistic relationship developments. Past and present events in both series also play roles (a lot more so in Bitter Virgin) as well. Recommended for fans of drama.

The plot is similar. Both protagonist have been raped. The story of the girl in kiss and never cry is more developed than bitter virgin. Trust this manga is enjoyable.

Both stories feature teenagers struggling with their past and dealing with issues no kid should ever have to deal with. There's likeable characters, hope for better and some nice romance found in them. 
reportRecommended by Trivialmadness
Both series deal with the idea of the past and not accepting of it Bitter virgin is more traumatic to MC since she suffered a lot Tasogare is mostly about a ghost who doesn't wanna accept her past since she died Both series have a boy character that help the Mc alot 
reportRecommended by Bofa1207
Both of them deal with taboos like incest and rape, that will be openly discussed and practiced. 
reportRecommended by -YUMMY-
Both follow along the lines of a psychological drama type thing along bitter virgin is much more in depth due to the fact that it is longer. They both feature abuse, and incorporate it very well.  
reportRecommended by slyphhh
Both include love triangles about high school students. While Ef also includes other stories, Bitter Virgin focuses just on the one relationship. 
reportRecommended by Asfaria
Both of them deal with sexual abuse and the way it effects your personal and romantic life. They also both take place i a high-school setting. Sorry if this isnt super descriptive I just noticed this oneshot had no recommendations.

Both girls are raped in those two manga but in Haou airen the girl fall in love of her rapist 
reportRecommended by Fudo_Boom
they're both about girls being abused by their fathers and how they deal with it and with the person they fall in love with 
reportRecommended by Shiharu
We see characters dealing with the repercussions of a traumatic past and how they find comfort in a loved one and learn how to trust again. Mars, however, handles issues with greater competence; nevertheless, both are worth reading for those who love romances with a darker edge. 
reportRecommended by orangensaft
Both stories have a very similar bittersweet mood and atmosphere to it, even though there's no similarity to plot.  
reportRecommended by tarepanda
When I started to get into Bitter Virgin, it reminded me a lot of how Kimi ni Todoke was once I got into it. Bitter Virgin's subject matter is more serious while Kimi ni Todoke's is more lighthearted. Both are tear-jerking stories about a boy and a girl who want to be with each other but just can't seem to convey their feelings to each other. 
reportRecommended by BreezeElric
Both belong to the same genre (High school romance) Both have very good artwork with a fair bit of panty flash added to it Both have a female lead with a similar tragic past although Bitter Virgin's heroine has it much worse than Good Ending's. In both titles the male lead does whatever he can to deal with the girls tragic experience although GE doesn't do this until later (maybe I just gave away a spoiler here)

The Confidential Confessions series covers some the issues young women may experience in their lives. Both share some of the obstacles they must overcome and how not only they impact the girls themselves, but the people around them. 
reportRecommended by Saraii
They are both sad and very deep. While the plots are not very similar, both stories have great meaning and allow the reader to think. Deep Love is very depressing, so be warned before you read it.

I dunno about you guys... smut well, at least Bitter Virgin has a higher score compared to Renai Shijo Shugi, but I still feel bad after I finished both. probably why I find them both so similar 
reportRecommended by tsubasa00kurenai
In both mangas, a girl who has been abused mentally and sexually heals. Although Antique Romance may have a darker side to it, it's wonderfully drawn pictures and character interaction makes it a highly enjoyable manga.  
reportRecommended by Zimiaflies
Good twists with people who truly love each other. Both female characters have a hidden past that they need help getting through.  
reportRecommended by b00blike
Both about a boy finding out a girl's secret. I guess this one is not as serious. 
reportRecommended by Berry_TM
The main characters in both shows match each other well.

Both happens in school, both are good drama, pretty similiar art style and has own interesting stories. If you enjoyed reading Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu, then you'll enjoy Bitter Virgin too.
