The rivalry between the couple is verys imilar except in Last Game the guy is the one who is always second place. Other than that, in both the guys are both trying to get their love noticed by the dense girl. The difference in social position is the same, both childhood friends.
Special is longer and completed
Last game is ongoing, not many chapters so far and more romance oriented.
Both INCREDIBLY cute.
These two mangas are similar in various ways, such as the boy-girl relationship, and one of them vying for the other's seemingly apathetic attention. In S.A., Hikari (the girl) wants to beat Kei (the boy), whereas its vice versa for the Last Game.
Special A and Last Game has a similar premise that involves a rivalry between the two lead characters. The main male protagonist from both series are also fairly confident in their own abilities while actively compete with others. Both series adapts relationship dynamics that also includes its supporting characters. Despite the competitive nature of the two lead characters, there is also subtle romance that gradually develops between them along with their own character growth. Recommended for fans of lighthearted school life shoujo.
Rivalry between Hikari and Kei is very similar to rivalry between Kujou and Yanagi, but it's a bit different because in the Last Game the girl is the one who is always first. Also, the main guys are inlove with heroine and both heroines are oblivious about it.
Someone who is used to being in first all the time gets a little bit too confident, and so they are shattered when someone beats them. So ever since their childhood, there has been an ongoing rivalry for first place.
In Last game, it is the guy who is in second place, while in Special A it is the girl.
In both cases, the guy falls in love with the girl first, while the girl is completely oblivious, and in both the guy is rich and the girl is poor.
Last game is really similar to Special A. In both manga's the guy and the girl are fighting for the first place in everything. The guy in last game is just like the guy in special A are very wealthy guys who are looking good, and a lot of girls fangirling over them.
The rivary in both manga's are very similar.
Also in both manga's the girls are very dense and poor, they don't quite get the feelings the male leads have for them, and they aren't fast to find out.
Overal I really am loving both of them so much, So if you liked you, definitely check the other one too and don't be disappointed!  read more
The main guys are both rich, good in academics and sports, and good-looking(also blonde but Kei's is brownish).. while the girl is poor, good in academic and sports, has black hair AND dense. The main lead guys are in love with the main lead girl and they try to make them notice it ... however., the girl is too dense to realize it.
Both have a rivalry between the main couple that started in their childhood, except the guy (Kei) in Special A is the one who's always no.1 while the girl's (Hikari) no.2, vice versa for Last Game. When they grew, both the no.2s of both manga decided to go to the same school as their rival to defeat the no.1s and thus continues their rivalry and finding their way into love with a few twists.
The two are absolutely adorable <3 :)) Totally recommend it ;D read more
The main leads are both childhood friends who are rivals at first. Both the guys are rich and are very capable.(Though in S.A.'s case, Kei is better than Hikari and in Last Game Kujou is better than Yanagi) It's like switching places. They're both funny because the girl is always so dense and the guy always end up disapponted.
-One has girl who is always better than the guy in everything while other has guy who is always better than the girl in everything
-Both have characters start off as rivals and friends but end up falling in love with each other
-Both females are at least a little bit of an airhead while both males are rich kids
-Both are very good shoujo manga
They both have the same kind of story premise to it. With two charters having an underlined competiveness about them (thought in both books the competition is one-sided). Both cute stories where you follow the charters through there school days.
Both feature expressionless composed girl obsessed in studying (and wears braids/pigtails), the difference is that Last Game is Tonari´s version "Shizuku x Yamaken route" since the protagonist of LG greatly resembles Yamaken in personality and looks from Tonari. Also in LG the setting changes to university (later).
The heroines in both Toanri no Kaibutsu-kun and Last Game only care about one thing. Studying. They have no friends, all their life is about studying and getting good grades and they have absolutely love experience until one day, their very first friends made them aware of their feelings and the very first love.
When reading these two manga, I couldn't help but notice some of the similarities.
First of all..in both manga series, there is a main female protagonist who is very intelligent in academics. Then, there's the guy at school who meets her and they have an awkward relationship. From that relationship, there is comedy, drama, and a little romance between the duo.
Both manga series takes place at school and is generally lighthearted without too much emotions.
Both manga also has a slice of life feeling where everyday presents a new challenge and way to spent life.
Last Game is kind of like if Shizuku ended up with a cross of Haru and Yamaken.
The characters are very similar, even in how they look. Mikoto and Shizuku both are incredibly smart, and used to coming in first place in school.
Hisato is more similar to Yamaken in that he is rich and used to girls coming after him, and his attitude towards the main girl. He's more similar to Haru in terms of possessiveness and innocence. The guy falls in love with the girl first in both cases.
Tonari really reminds me of Last Game.
First of all the main female protagonists are really alike. Both two tails, both are only thinking about their future and both really get the best scores!
The boys aren't that much alike, but they fall in love with the girls first. And a love story develops.
They are both really cute shoujo's allthough Tonari is really a mix between Beast Master & Last Game. They are all lovely to read!
While reading Tonari no Kaibutsu kun I realised that the female protagonist is the same as Last Game. Their personalities aswell, the fact that they're both focused on studying. Also they're pretty clueless with romance. The storyline is simliar aswell, the male and female protagonist are mutually understanding. The setting aswell, both set in high school. Althought the male Isn't a delinquent like in tonari but it gives the same vibe. Enjoy reading ^^
Both main couples take a long time to finally create a stable relationship. In other words, both have a complexed slow romance.
Also, the female leads are hard to deal with; since they're strongly focused on their studies and conducts, they have a cold character and are quite clueless when it comes to deal with their feelings.
I can't believe I didn't read Last Game sooner, considering it comes so highly recommended for my favorite manga, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. As mentioned in previous recommendations, the heroines strongly resemble each other in their studiousness, "plain" appearances, and new experiences with friendship and love. It's also fun to see two different relationships explored, since the primary relationship in Last Game is a failed side-relationship in TnK.
Last Game is a little bit more stereotypical shoujo than TnK, which is more of a shoujo satire (at least at the beginning). Towards the end of both series, they lose some of their humor and devolve into more trope-like scenarios (i.e. lots of crying and more sparkly moments).
The reason I recommend them together is that they have a similar appreciation for humor and underlying themes of first relationships, but are different enough to not be boring thanks to contrasting male leads and differing time frames (Last Game covers 10 years, primarily post-high school, while TnK is almost entirely high school). Do it! Read it! read more
In both KWMS and Last Game, the guy likes the girl first but the girl doesn't like the guy; The girl is strong, doesn't really have intrest in most things, doesn't pay much attention to the guy, the art is a bit simular, both vary cute! I get a KWMS feel when reading Last Game. :)
Both series takes has a main male protagonist who has a wise mind and admired by many others. However, there is one girl that always competes against him to see who is better. There is strong evident amount of romantic development as their story progresses. In addition, we find out more about the characters at a persona level. Both series has lighthearted comedy and is especially recommended for shoujo readers.
They both are very similar. Boys: KWMS - Usui: handsome, rich , good at everything
LG - Yanagi : Handsome, Rich good at everything (except , he can't beat Kujo)
Girls : (now here is a big difference), Misaki is the Demon president while Kujo is very quiet) But both girls are smart. ( and not interested in the Male mc)
Both male MC's objective is to make the girls to fall in love with them
If you liked Kaichou wa maid-sama, you'll definitely like Last game (or not :p )
It's the same basic idea where a rich guy fall in-love with a poor girl. But the plot and the characters personalities are totally different.... If you're interested, it wouldn't be harmful to give it a try!
Due to childhood occurrences the protagonist wants "revenge" on the girl. A typical childhood fight grows into something more as the characters are now in HS. Both manga are quiet unique in these aspects.
Both romance manga's where the protagonist was somehow bullied by a girl that they want to get back at.
Last Game, the protagonist was always jelous of her like a rival but then found out he has a crush on her.
Masamune-kun no Revenge, the protagonist wants to have revenge on a girl that bullied him by making her fall for him and reject her.
Last game is similar to Taiyou no Ie because both female character have similar personalities and both male main characters can't seem to leave them alone also thee known them since they were young. when i read this manga i couldn't help but think of Taiyou no Ie but both these manga's are a great read for those who love romance and a bit of drama bith are completed so you could binge read these.
Last Game and Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san adapts a story where we see an assertive female character outclass the male protagonist on many occasions. Both series takes place in a school life setting where there's a lot of drama going on. Last Game is more known for its drama and relationship developments while Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san appeals to more comedy. However, it is noticeable about the hints of romance dropped in for both series that overlaps with their story.
They have very skilled/intelligent female main characters, though they look plain, they ARE the main characters. Something will happen and will give you butterflies on your stomach. And as for the male mc, they always chase after the female mc to beat them. I love these mangas. They have a lot of similarities :)
* The guys fall first
*Two guys fall for our heroine
* Our heroine is very talented
* She is very dense and aloof
* The main male lead is rich and he is constantly in second place to our heroine
* Our heroine is kind
Last Game is similar to ReLIFE not so much with the overall plot, but with the main couple, the protagonists.
*minor spoilers below*
Kujou Mikoto & Hishiro Chizuru are similar because they both are hard-working, smart, stoic, dense, can't quite smile when trying (but can genuinely smile in the moment), and are both rather socially inept. They also look pretty similar, since Kujou used to part her hair into two braids, and Hishiro parts hers into low pigtails (though with that & Hishiro's personality, she could be seen similar to Mizutani Shizuku from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun).
Also, with Kujou & Hishiro, since they cannot smile and when they try to it looks pretty menacing, there are misunderstandings. Tachibana misunderstands Kujou's smiles and Kariu misunderstands Hishiro's smiles when the latter were trying to be friendly. Along with this trend, Kujou & Hishiro both greatly treasure friendship because they had never really had friends prior.
Yanagi Naoto & Arata Kaizaki are similar because they are both very kind and considerate towards others and their feelings, though Yanagi is smart and dense. Though with Kujou & Yanagi each being a "KY" (can't read the situation/atmosphere), Kaizaki can read the atmosphere and takes the surrounding peoples' feelings into account. read more
This has been said before but I couldn't help but feel this so very blatantly as I read it, so I agree: this is a character based recommendation: the protags are nearly the same with separate environments. A lot of it is about finding oneself through one's social group, namely the main female leads. The male leads, on the other hand, are catalysts and just as much must find themselves through their own means (and the subtle help of the female leads)
They're not much similar in terms of plot. However, the heroines, Mikoto and Hishiro, are totally much alike - dense, naive, excels both at sports and academics, and are usually seen with the poker face. Also, both titles feature the same level of comedy and the characters show similar personalities.
[bonus: ReLIFE is in full-color]
Kujou and Sawako are very similar. They both lack friends at the beginning, are quite plain-looking, and are very dense when it comes to love. The heros fall in love with them, but developments are slow (nevertheless, extremely cute.) I think Last Game is most similar to Kimi ni Todoke, but it's more like a cross between Kimi ni Todoke, Special A, and Kaichou wa Maid Sama. haha
-They have a high school feel to it at the start
-The boy likes the girl
-Later the girl likes the guy
-Kujou looks like Sawako and acts like her in a sense
-They both can't smile!! XD
-Innocent and bubbly love~~
-The boys are hot~ >///<
If you like Koi Dano Ai Dano, try Last Game or vice versa. The handsome main leads in these shoujos have to deal with intelligent yet clueless girls. The guys fall for them, yet they see him as their best friend and ignore all clues about romance - also the guys are not very good at straightforwardly telling the girl, but go about their approach in a round about way that leads nowhere, yet in a very humorous way. Koi Dano is very humorous yet also very well written and witty, while Last Game is not as intricately woven, it's also very good.  read more
both girls are reasonably smart, but oblivious to the unrequited love that started from a young age by "best friends". There are love rivals in both stories, and the girls although initially loners gain friends they soon cherish
Both are romcoms, in both cases characters are geniuses, in both cases one of the characters is from a very wealthy family background.
Though Last Game is more on the cute side, and Kaguya-sama more about the duel between the main characters.
Both heroes are popular guys. And somewhat they have bets. In Last Game, it is the last game to make one of them fall in love to the other, in Kaguya sama it is similar; both mc wanted each of them love the other as a bet or a game
In both stories, the female character is oblivious to matters of love while the male character (who falls head over heels for her) suffers due to her density. Both are refreshing reads about an innocent play of young love.
-Both male characters love the female and don't admit straight out to the MC
-MC doesn't realize her feelings for the guy & has no experience dating
-MC's are both highly intelligent and capable
-Both guys are very intelligent but silly
-Both girls are very devoted to their family and have lost a parent at a young age
-Girl's don't care about appearances or status's and both guys have high status&are rich
Yanagi and Shiraishi are quite similar with each other. Both are popular, rich, and highly intelligent. Enter the heroines Kujou and Kurusowa who are 'cool' as well - intelligent and seems to be unfazed with the existence of the male lead characters. Both female leads are somewhat a challenge to our male leads and both male leads find the heroines their 'rival' but both fell in love to their female leads as well. If you like shoujo and cute romance story, both stories are highly recommended.
Both of these mangas have:
- Boy MC trying to make the Girl MC fall in love with them
- Girl MC being (hilariously) dense when it comes to love
- MCs are both well known in their school
- Girl MC also has a crush on Boy MC but they just don't realize it
Same author and and art style. If you want a light, heart-warming shoujo manga, you'd definitely love this! In last game the two main protagonist are in love while the two has secret admirers! Same goes as to Katakoi Triangle forming a somewhat different base of triangle. The girl likes boy yet the boy's friend likes the same girl! Plus, the boy who likes the girl who likes his best friend, has a secret admirer too! Nonetheless, a triangle is formed! Childhood friends also are included in both
Childhood and the past plays a prominent role as it connects to the overall story for both Last Game and Nisekoi. As a rom-com, both series adapts romance in a more innocent way with doses of comedy. The main male character has a peculiar relationship with the main female character. And although their premises are different, the character interactions are similar. There is also love triangles, background stories, and in general a standard shoujo way of approaching their plot. Recommended for readers of rom-com shoujo.
A youth friend from long a ago that yoy actually loved but you never realised it. You could say that bith of these manga center around this theme. Altough the seting is completely different, the theme is very similar. Both boys get in a situation where they spend a lot of time with a girl they don't like. But maybe their feelings will change? If you like rom/com, then these stories are perfect for you!
The art is quite similar. The female protagonists have more or less the same clueless attitude. As for the male lead, Love log's lead is a female hater whereas love game's main character is a ladies man (though infatuated with kujou). Both male protagonists are quite simple minded, and its a story in which the male lead falls in love first.
The main characters of both series are boys ho aren't really interested in having a girlfriend. And then they meet a girl who doesn't talk a lot and doesn't have a lot of friends. Tey hate this girl, but throughout the story their feelings start to change...
Last Game and Cat Street both have similar female main characters who have trouble interacting with other people at the start, but gradually begin to open up to others after making friends. Both manga have the theme of romance, and also share a similar relaxed atmosphere in their respective stories that makes them both very easy, enjoyable reads.
The romantic aspect is quite similar. Both are about childhood friends. The boy falls for the girl but the girl is totally oblivious of his feelings. However Last Game is a comedy while Kanojo wa Mada Koi wo Shiranai is a drama. Also in Last Game the guy is the rich one as opposed to the guy in Kanojo wa Mada Koi wo Shiranai who is almost like a servant in the girl's house. Moreover Mikoto is a lot smarter than the naive Anna.
It doesn't seem aliek at first but there are actually many things similar: Both are about a smart girl trying her best at school for the sake of her parents and her classmate, an unlike her really popular boy. Then the girl suddenly has to face some changes and has to handle her new friends and has to find out what this new weird feeling is she has and is even able to make her cry.
The two stories have a similar dynamic of a guy completely in love with an oblivious girl, while everyone around them is aware of what's going on. Last Game includes more of the typical school plot elements, ranging from primary school through to college. Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou has more variety because it develops a cast of characters with a range of ages and wacky personalities. The protagonist has a different personality in the two stories, but hilarious moments are present in both.
Both involve long-time friends, where one side harbors feelings for the other, and the other party is kinda clueless. The relationships in each story are fun, sweet, and sometimes painful in their own ways, due to the obliviousness of the other party.
I was initially put off by the description for LG. Don't let it fool you. The description applies to their relationship up through high school. The story starts off during their college life, and the male lead's feelings have transformed significantly as compared to what the description makes you believe. K79% takes place in high school, where the leads have cultivated a strong bond that no one can seem to penetrate, much to their dismay. Both stories have strong female leads, and male leads who are supportive of them. read more
these two mangas have many things in common and different about each other
- has more smut
-is more drama centered
-more naive shoujo
-popular boy who is smart
-clueless heroine who styles old fashioned clothing and twin braids
-both have a sense of the two main love interests competing
-there are extra loves for both the hero and heroine for drama
-both heroines are in a denial like phase
-both heroines are school oriented
-both male leads are somewhat 'players'
i recommend you try both yet be warned SMUT but they are both really good and around the same length story, and chapter wise
The last game is similar to the first short story because the girl is sort of naive and does not notice that the guy like her until later in the story, however last game is a lot longer then the short story and so is a lot better when it comes to plot development.
These manga tackle love in a very unique way. With simple art you will make sure you will it get distracted by it beautiful plot. These manga don't just make it simple for you to figure what the hell is happening but the way they make it very progressive on how every character feelings and emotion develops. Everything change progressively which I love so much. Every page connects with intricate backstory that tackle how the character interact. With friends that tackle the main character love interest to the fullest. With characters that is so shy on how they will reach to the person, and characters that is confuse what is this love. The plot is so great you will be left with a nice heartwarming heart. So now I want you to enjoy these manga to the fullest. Trust me they are great.  read more
natsuki (watari-kun ke no youkai-san) and kujou (last game) are both very calm in any situation, strong and dependable.both mangas are made by the same mangaka. watari-kun ke no youkai-san is only a oneshot and last game is currently publishing. watari-kun ke no youkai-san has a little fantasy in it and last game is a school themed manga.
they are both very enjoyable!
The characters look identical, no joke.(but that happens a lot soo...)
Both have the male protagonist finding themselves falling in love with the female lead, with the females taking a little longer until they realize their feelings. Both also have this adorable feel to it as you read on.
Despite Shirayuki Hime not having any rivalry between the male and female, the two mangas are relatively the same:)
I smiled and laughed while reading through both of these<3
One is typical yaoi and the other is typical shoujo but both involve a male protagonist who falls for someone unexpectedly and tries to bully them into liking him, spurned by past rejection. Very similar atmosphere.
In both series, the two main characters has a past that brings them to where they are in the present. Although the main female protagonist's personalities aren't alike, they do hold a lot of the same values such as friendship and kindness with others. As such, the main male protagonist has a curious interest in them. Both series follows a lot of the classic shoujo tropes including romance that develops as the story progresses. There is drama and lighthearted comedy that takes place in a school life setting.
The female leads, Yukari (Penguin Kakumei) and Mikoto (Last Game), are very similar characters. Both come from disadvantaged single-parent households and their situation has transformed them into responsible, hard-working daughters whose only goal is to become a public servant. Both are also perfect at absolutely everything they do. The stories center on the special men these girls meet and how their humble, unambitious lives are changed.
Penguin Kakumei is about showbiz and takes place during high school, while Last Game has a time-jump and covers over a decade--more focus is on the romance in the latter.
the guys are the same, tsunderes XD . The girl does not understand the guys feelings. They've known each other for a long time and the guy has liked her since he was little. The rivals are sort of the same.
Both are about a rich protagonist and a average female. In Last Game, the male is trying to get the female to fall for him as the "last game (in a way of revenge for the female beating him in many games)" , and in Kimi no Koto nado Zettai ni it about a male attempting to get revenge against a female by getting her to fall in love with him.
They're both funny, cute, and shoujo. If they ever made a crossover, it's like putting butter on bread. Both of them have this in common: one of the main character hates the other main character by being jealous of their superiority. One's ambiguous, the other's stoic. Akane hates her twin brother, Aoi while Yanagi hates his rival, Kujou, but they're always together over time with love obstacles, of course. The difference is age and relation. Kujou and Yanagi are 2nd year college students, rival since elementary school. Akane and Aoi are middle-high school twins.
The humor is similar and a lot of background characters are charming and endearing. (you will feel sad for them in both get mentally prepared.) These mangas aren't alike in the storyline as much in the characters' personalities and their feelings.
Yanagi is calmer and more mature but could easily be a 20 year old Umi (he's also obviously less perverted than him but let's put this aside), while Kujou and Naka are very kind girls who care deeply about their friends. They are both pretty gullible.
But the four of them are mostly all confused dorks who don't know how to correctly express their feelings even though they're in love. read more
