Both are high school romances where the main protagonist is stuck in a love triangle between one guy who she loves but can't quite have and another guy who she doesn't notice until he confesses, and both love interests are so damn likable that you can't help but root for both of them. If you seek the guilty pleasure of shoujo rom-com cliches, Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Ao Haru Ride are chock-full of adorable moments that will make your heart squeal.
Both are really cute in the sense that the girl is stuck in a love triangle and is constantly getting confused about her own feelings > <
It starts off with the girl liking one of the guys but got "rejected" due to certain circumstances but the guy regrets his choice soon after > <
However, by then the other guy already confess and both of them started going out > <
The really enjoyable part is that you'll really not know who to root for because both guys are really cute! >w< ♡
If you're looking for some lighthearted romance, Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Ao Haru Ride should definitely be a consideration. Both series involves the awkward meeting of the main girl and guy. Their relationship stands out as awkward as neither are similar. But throughout the course of the series, they begin to know and understand each other. While Ao Haru Ride lacks the subtext of teacher/student relationships, there is a character in that series who has a crush on their teacher. Both series also focuses a bit on the circumstances at school whether it'd be thinking about the future, forming relationships, and tackling against difficult obstacles. Recommended for fans of romantic comedy with a charming story. read more
"It's almost as if Murao got her own spin off in Hirunaka no Ryuusei." Pretty much this. Suzume's design and personality are very similar to Murao and so is Shishio to Tanaka-sensei.
Both manga are love triangles set in a high school setting. Both protagonists are beautiful and unique and are very different from the normal shoujo female lead. They learn how to love and grow as characters while making friends and experiencing heartbreak.
Both Ao Haru Ride and Hirunaka no Ryuusei have a very similar plot in which the main character is involved in a love triangle. At first, there is mutual feelings between the main girl and the current main guy she is with, but due to circumstances, the main guy had to leave her which leaves the main girl heartbroken and in confusion. Along the way, she would encounter new relationships whether its friendship, rivalry, or love. After spending time together with the second main guy, he would confess to the main girl leaving her with feelings of uncertainty. Throughout the series, it would leave the readers unable to decide who to root for to be with the main girl due to both of the guys having their own good points. read more
If you are one of those people who love a love-triangle type of romance story, then these two are perfect for you. Both main characters in these manga are stock with two guys (the one guy she truly loves but she can’t be with him and the other guy who is always there for her and patiently waiting that in soon time, will also be loved by her like the first).
Both manga also have the student-teacher relationship though it is not the focus in Ao Haru Ride unlike in Hirunaka no Ryuusei.
But one thing is for sure, both of these are enjoyable to read and you will find yourself wondering as to whom the girl will end up to. (づ｡◕‿‿◕｡)づ read more
Aoharaido and Hirunaka no ryuusei are similar because in both mangas we see some cliches of manga shoujo but is still a very good manga. In both mangas we see comedy, drama and romance, also we see cute characters. Altough i think that in HnR have more comedy and a more charismatic main female character. I like so much both mangas, also the drawing in both mangas is so nice. Very recommended!
If you like high school romance stories then you should try reading this.
It's a story about a country girl who moved to Tokyo and fell in love with her teacher. However, due to some interesting twist of events, she became the love interest of the first friend she ever made in school.
It clearly depicts the idea of true friendship and love as the characters try to evaluate themselves and the situation they're in. And in the process, it also shows how love heals and mends a broken heart, as well as moving on.
As with similar school elements and conventional romance tactics applied in shoujo, Daytime Shooting Star and Aoharaido both give their best in pulling heartstrings with certain chapters. Both manage to make it to a great climax somewhere within the middle, but have ended up falling short, unable to surpass its highest points in the later chapters.
This is more of a warning that when you start reading either of this manga, you will not get as much as a satisfying ending after experiencing the greatest moments in both. If you are willing to read it still, then have at it. It's still worth reading for your time. read more
These manga share some similarities:
- The typical love triangle where the heroine is in love with the "1st guy" and later meets "2nd guy" (aka underdog) which is her classmate.
- The hero is dark haired and is someone close to her (neighbour/teacher) and the underdog has blonde hair and has a tendency to blush a lot around the heroine.
- Both leading boys are very likeable to the point you just want them to end in a happy threesome.
- The main reason why these two manga are so alike is because near the end some situations between the characters are very similar.
Personally (unlike the majority of fans) I prefer TNA to HNR because I can relate more to the characters, but both are good reads and if you are a shoujo lover you don´t wanna miss these! read more
It's all about a girl's first love and second love and how she struggles between the two. These two are very similar in many ways (in which I won't spoil anything) Although Kyousuke isn't like Shishio's personality, they both lead on the MC a lot and are close to her. Mamura is very similar to Miyake, in which they blush a lot and cherish the heroine.
Tonari no Atashi and Hirunaka no Ryuusei are two high quality shoujo manga series. The two are great series for first time (shoujo) manga readers. Although Hirunaka no Ryuusei tends to be more light hearted, they share similarities with a love triangle (did not see that coming) and older "first" love interests.
These two manga have a love triangle with an underdog that is as much as popular/loved in the fandom as the main hero. Both are really great reads that start as typical shoujo but then slowly deviate from the usual shoujo tropes. If you like one you'll surely enjoy the other.
Both are considered classic shoujo with love triangles and relationships. Throughout both series, the main female protagonist learns what it's like to develop a relationship with others. Through trial and error, they learn about the essence of love. There is growth in both series as the main female protagonist develops and becomes more confident in herself and around others. I recommend both series for anyone interested for a bite of innocent shoujo.
Love triangles, arts, everything is similar. However the main characters are different from each other. In Hirunaka no Ryuusei the girl is a bit dense about her feelings while in Mairunovich the girl is more outgoing.
They aren't carbon copies of each other, but they have the same vibe about them. Some characters are similar to each other, for example; the "frienemy" character in both of them. The heroines are both somewhat plain and they don't know a lot about love/makeup/girlishness/etc. as well.
Age gap romance manga between a high school girl/early 20's man who have similar personalities. The girls are quiet, thoughtful, and determined while the guys are kind, yet personally struggle to maintain a "proper" distance between himself the girl.
Both are warming stories about the first love and what it comes with it. Both include the age difference topic: how the male protagonist struggles his feelings and tries to maintain a "proper" distance, along with the appereance of younger rivals. While Hirunaka no Ryuusei tells the story of a teacher-student relationship, in Taiyou no ie you'll find the childhood friends relationship, and family problems, that need to be handled in order for the characters to grow.
Well they got a crossover, what more? The female protagonists always have dazed eyes and don't show emotion often. The artstyles are clear and very appealing. Highly recommend for those want to enjoy romance
While both series follow different premises, they appeal to shoujo fans by their general setup. We have two main characters who are completely different meeting each other. And throughout both series' perspective stories, they connect on different levels while getting to know one another. Romance is inevitable in both series but takes some time to develop. Both series has standard shoujo art but also on occasions works itself with more elaborate style of character expressions to show realism. Recommended for fans for shoujo and school life.
Both series are known for their slice of life elements and slow pace in storytelling. Despite this, they also have a colorful cast of characters and romance that develops subtly over the course of the story. Both series also adapts relationships of different nature that are explored. And with these relationships, we can see a good amount of characterization focused on the main protagonists. Recommended for fans of lighthearted drama.
Characters, art and plot are similar - they're both easy reads with fun, realistic and loveable characters. The art is very similar too. However, unlike Hirunaka no Ryuusei, Horimiya doesn't have a love triangle. Because of that, there's probably also a little more 'drama' in Hirunaka no Ryuusei, but they're both otherwise pretty mellow.
Both series are written by the same author, Yamamori Mika. As such, expect similarity with the style of their storytelling and artwork. The main female protagonist of both series has to move into a new environment and adapts with their lifestyle. Throughout the series, they build connections with others and love blooms between certain characters. Recommended for fans interested in lighthearted shoujo.
Both of them talking about love triangle. A teenage girl who will fall in love with a guy older than her and there a classmate who love her. Both of them is romance, shoujo, slice of life and comedy. If you enjoyed reading one of them then your gonna enjoy reading the other one ^^ .
Two guys after one girl (for the most part)! Both guys in both stories have contrasting personalities - good foils of each other! Also, there was a small collaboration between the two briefly. Both of these manga kind of have the same feel to them. Both stories bring the same kind of tugging at your heart to make you feel like the female lead herself and what her struggles are within the story and in her love(s?). And both have easy on the eyes art. Pretty boys and pretty girls.
Finished reading Heroine Shikkaku but have been left craving more? It's a good thing Hirunaka no Ryuusei exists!
Both our heroines in these two shōjos endure the adversities of a love triangle. While Heroine Shikkaku follows the complex romances between high school students, Yamamori Mika, mangaka of Hirunaka no Ryuusei, spices things up by daringly making one of the male leads the heroine's homeroom teacher.
When reading Hirunaka no Ryuusei, your Heroine Shikkaku cravings will be satisfied in no time at all.
+ Shoujo manga published in Margaret.
+ Lighthearted, adorable, and easy-to-read.
+ The heroine is a plain high school girl that doesn't put an effort to be cute. Of course, that calls for a chapter when they had a makeover.
+ The heroine's love interest is a middle-aged, single, cigarette-smoking man who at first looked creepy but is actually handsome.
+ There is also another boy who likes the heroine.
As someone else mentioned, the feel of the story is strikingly similar: a main protagonist girl and two males vying for her attention. There are the regular support characters on the side, and both girls struggle to overcome their first crush-- if at all. Both play on cliche and stereotypical tropes, but do so in slightly different ways. The art in both were also very well done (in a shoujo style, of course.)
After I read chapter 3 of Hirunaka no Ryuusei I think Kimi ni todoke and Hirunaka no Ryuusei are similar ...
A cute girl came to the main character to be her friend just to stay close to the guy who she like . And this cute girl hate the main character .
Looking for a classic shoujo? The answer is here. Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Kimi ni Todoke are easily candidates for readers who are looking for a charming romance series. In fact, both series takes place in a school life environment where drama and romance ensures. The main male protagonist from both series gets acquainted with the main girl where relationship becomes a dynamic focus as part of the story. There is focus also involving other characters that all get connected in various ways to flesh out the main themes of both series.
The male protagonists from both manga, Anzu and Shishio, remind me of each other; their personalities are really similar (and it seems they both like to wear those cute glasses!). Moreover, both manga exhibit a budding romance between an adult and a high school girl.
If you were on Team Sensei for Daytime Shooting Star (Hirunaka), you'll definitely enjoy Coffee & Vanilla if you don't mind the vanilla smut. Coffee & Vanilla is a romance between an inexperienced college student and a young-looking, hot business man. Daytime Shooting Star does explore a romance between a high school student and teacher. The male leads are also very sexy and look very similar to each other.
Both mangas exhibit some similarities, as the two main characters are both ugly ducklings who, with a little bit of makeup, can turn into a swan. With the makeup on, she is able to attract an older guy and is able to form a relationship with him (in Hirunaka, it is ambiguous whether or not they had one in the first place). There is also another male that's is in love with her, but due to her "dating" the other guy, it is hard for that guy to get her. Along the way, something causes their relationship to crumble, due to the actions of one. Kuragehime is ongoing, whereas Hirunaka is completed. Kuragehime is also a josei manga, whereas Hirunaka is a shoujo.

Sweet mangas. Similar in matter of main characters.
In both, the main girl isnt shy and is open about her feelings.
The main guys are quiet and blush when they touch a girl, but the main girl is able to get near them.
-The Plot Chun chun and Dai-chan has a very similar resemblance to the Future Naho and Suwa;
-The Plot that Naho was with Kakeru would be if the Sensei and Chun chun stay together
-The Secondary couple as Yuyuka-chan and Togyuu represent the Azu and Hagita;
-Are also a yaoi couple would be the Dai-chan and the Sensei and the Suwa and Kakeru
Both are about a high school girl who moves to a big city and has to adjust to a new life/school/friends. During this process she falls in love with her teacher. And of course it becomes a triangle when the second guy comes around.... Sweet and short! Better ending than Hirunaka no Ryuusei....
Both are about a relationship between a student and a young teacher. Both male characters are rather similar: a little weird, friendly and popular with the students and somewhat childish. In both mangas the relationship starts off with the teacher being concerned and friendly with the fermale lead and trying to help her integrating in the class and making friends. Both of the main characters fall for the teacher and confess first. Hirunaka no Ryuusei is a lot longer and more developed tough.
Both of these mangas involve love triangles where it would make you swoon for all of the main guy characters, giving you heartaches because you just find it incredibly difficult to choose who is better or who should end up with the main female protagonist of the story. Both of these story lines are also very interestingly fluffy and cute and I HIGHLY recommend it for those who are into these types of story.
Same cheerful female lead, same almost perfect two male leads, same never ending love triangle. You can feel that after a while both of them become very unpredictable, if you are satisfied with the way one of them ends, then you will surely like the other one, too.
There's a oneshot in Hirunaka no Ryuusei called "A Love Story in Moist Rainy Days", it can be found separately by googling it. And there's a oneshot included in Gestalt called "See Through", it can also be found separately by googling. Now that's outta the way, both of these oneshots give off the same feeling and atmosphere, their setup is similar as well, based on a rainy day. Both are cute reads, while the difference being one is shoujo and the other is BL. So don't read if one isn't your preference.
* Similar arts
* Are about high school students
* The main character falls for a boy who saved her after fainted
* The guys around the main character feels attracted to her for her kindness and personality being different from other loud high school girls that mostly chase handsome guys.

Both interesting and captivating manga read more

Yamamori Mika admitted in an interview the influence Ikuemi Ryou had on her work, and you can definitely see how I Love Her influenced HnR. The plot of "recently transfered student meets young and hip teacher" is just the same, and the whole atmosphere feels very similar, dealing with the problems both MCs have to handle with their feelings.
Teacher - student relationship in both Kinkyori Renai and Hirunaka no Ryuusei. Plus, the sensei from Hirunaka no Ryuusei is quite similar to the sensei from Kinkyori Renai! Both are adorable and heart-warming stories :)
Hirunaka no Ryuusei and Yasashii Sekai no Tsukurikata combines elements of drama, school life, and romance with its storytelling. Both series heavily focuses on character relationships that includes older characters with younger ones (ex. student/teacher relationships). There is an a decent amount of characterization that is forged by the experiences of youth. Both series has obvious romance themes that translates into realism and close connections between characters.
Girls falling in love with an unknown guy who turns out to be their teacher with the good looks and others going 'kyah' over him.
Dealing with the forbidden teacher x student relationship.
Both stories contain love triangle, teacher x girl x guy friend, while HnR is more serious and complex.
