Even if the stories are different, these two are very similar. In both, one character is an unpredictable, prodigy person pursuing arts (Takeshi is a dancer while Nodame is a pianist) that develops a pet-like relationship with the other "cool" character that has her or his own demons to work through. Both are fresh romantic comedies that make you stop and think.
Both are excellent josei romantic comedy mangas featuring a odd, quirky couple where one person is serious while the other in the relationship is goofy and happy. I liked Kimi wa Petto better because the characters seemed better developed but both are good mangas worth checking out.
Both have boys that are referred to as animals and the female is the "master". However, Beast Master is shoujo while Kimi wa Pet is jousei. Kimi wa Pet is also, in my opinion, way better and much more mature than Beast Master.
Both series focuses on relationships but in rather unorthodox circumstances. In essence, their story connects characters through friendship and romance. The main male protagonist also has similar personalities - caring, compassionate, and helpful. The female protagonist on the other hand has more of a childish personality but does show their mature side as the series progresses. Both series are also known for their drama involving other characters that gets involved in their relationships; recommended for fans looking for a mature seinen or shoujo.
Both series has somewhat of a similar premise when it comes to their premises. The gender roles are switched though as the main female character in Kimi wa Pet is the master while Ookami Shoujo to Kuro's Ouji's main male protagonist also plays that role.
In terms of relationship building, they focus a servant/master relationship. However, as the series progresses, it's easy to see that the main characters has more than just a master/servant relationship. They also focus a lot on human emotions whether it's love, jealousy, anger, etc. Kimi wa Pet is more well known for some of its mature themes such as scandals, sex, etc. Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji has more of the standard school life setting with classic shoujo comedy. read more
the character set up is somewhat similar, a successful (elite) working woman with a high schooler coming into their home, a relationship with a working colleage and a development toward the highschooler...?
KIMI WA PETTO IS A SEQUEL OF CANDY LIFE!
I think not a lot of people out there know about this. Actually, I did too. I just discovered it since I'm marathoning Ogawa sensei's works after reading Kimi wa Pet.
Shinobu and Akane's love life is discussed in Candy Life. I was really curious about their love life, especially Shinobu's since she is so stiff and so serious in KwP.
For fans of Kimi wa Pet, I suggest this new josei Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu, like the former, we have a josei with an older woman / younger man set up and some similar issues with age gap. Their interactions are different though since the younger guy in Kyou wa Kaisha seems more mature than she does in some ways and there is less of the comedy to their interactions. The female lead is also less experienced in love. It is ongoing though so I don't know if the outcomes will be the same or not yet, we will have to see.  read more
Both are josei manga with a very strong female lead who is in love with someone older than her. She has a side that she can't show him. There is also a guy that's younger than her, and she depends on him and vents her problems to him quite a bit. The younger guy falls in love with her, although she is extremely oblivious.
Calm/tranquil vibes. Emotionally confused older female, younger male with trauma. A questionable relationship between people who find themselves attached to the other in a way that's closer than family and not quite romantic (mostly due to feeling they don't have the right or its abnormal), yet ultimately they're complete strangers. Kimi Wa Pet explores more romance while longing for and finding sanctuary in a stranger. Watashi no Shounen explores more the emptiness two people feel and gradually become attached to one another with the anxiety of being unable to define what kind of relationship they have and the fear of it being misunderstood.
These stories both involve situations where the love interest starts out acting in a owner/pet relationship, though in Kimi wa Pet the owner is the woman and vice versa in Boku no Pet ni Narinasai.
Though story wise Kimi wa Pet has more drama and the characters are more complex Boku no Pet ni Narinasai is cuter and much shorter.
One is a shoujo and one is a josei, but they reminded me of each other.
A girl/woman (Momo from Peach Girl / Sumire from Kimi wa Pet) is very annoyed at how others are falsely judging her based on appearances. She is the victim of a lot of unfairness.
She is caught in a love triangle between an immature and perverted guy who fools around all the time (Kairi from PG / Momo from KwP [Hey, another Momo]) who's in love with her, and a very mature guy who she has been in love with for a while (Touji from PG / Hasumi from KwP). She has trouble being herself around the guy who she is in love with, while she can vent to the immature one.
Also add in a very annoying girl/woman (Sae from PG / Shiori from KwP) who is portrayed as a "slut", and tries to seduce the guy that the main girl is in love with. Even though everyone hates her at the beginning, we begin to sympathize with her more later on. read more
Has the same sort of feel as Kimi wa Petto with the whole set up of how a guy ends up living with the main character (being total opposites) while she keeps it a secret from the person their going out with. Once you start reading you'll see plenty of other similarities that I don't want to spoil especially of how their definition of "home" changes.
The ideas are different and the characters are very different too in these two, but both of these have a very detailed stories and developed characters that go beyond the two main ones. and they are just two good reads
In both, the main character needs to learn that it's okay to be who she is - they are both about understanding and learning to appreciate yourself and learning what it means to be loved for who you are
So, the stories are very different, but both are funny, great stories that never get boring. In both, the main female character is very strong, but lacks confidence and seems misunderstood - though in different settings. Both have romance and some show biz.
if you're looking for a romance that doesn't involve school boys and girls, you've just hit the spot. both stories are about people in their adulthood trying to find what it means to love someone and what it takes to be near that person.
main characters are both office workers, though Sumire is much more successful at her work than Kaoru. they both have to face discrimination and stereotypes regrading traditional roles of men and women in society. in the end their relationship with loved ones are tested through their work hardships and prove to be less stable than they thought.
Suppli and Tramps start out practically identically: working women in their 20's break-up with partners they'd been together with for many years and, after dedicating so much to work, struggle to come to terms with dealing with the romantic drama that ensues.
Tramps is the more comedic of the two, and the focus is mostly on Sumire dealing with her ladyboy-pet outside of work. Suppli, however, has no ladyboy-pets, and a lot of attention is paid to Fuji's working life; gender equality issues and work-related stress getting covered in a lot more detail.
If you're just looking for a story with an adult, mature working woman, then both will do it for you. But Suppli is definitely aimed at those looking more for drama with a serious edge. If you're looking to get off over the idea of living with an obedient ladyboy, then Suppli isn't for you. read more
Both involve relationship of a working women with a high school boy. While Itadakimasu has the ecchi element Kimi wa petto doesn't. Both are light hearted and very funny. Both are excellent works worth reading.
Both stories involve a slightly wayward and childish character under the care of a more mature and elegant individual and the development and fulfillment of love. The bildungsroman theme is also present which makes both stories a delightful read. The plots are both well crafted and hold a mature appeal that is infrequent amongst the typical shoju novel.
VC involves a tomboyish girl and a mature younger pianist who have been friends since childhood while KPS depicts a relationship between an elder journalist and a younger dancer who she just met and ends up living with her. Both made me laugh, cry and had me wishing that the series had a sequel. If you liked one I think you might like the other as well. read more
Similarity is that there's an older woman who has a younger guy move in with her. The guy is more mature than he seems and likes the girl right away, but the girl takes longer to realize her own feelings. Similar plot in that sense.
Both series involve a romantic relationship developing between an older woman and a younger man. In both series, also, the main woman is torn between love and her career at some point. Both are good series, with Kimi wa Petto being the better of the two.
