Same story just with different characters and a few other small changes that don't really matter. It's not AS good as Hana-Kimi, but its still really good and worth reading if you liked that, and while its the same stuff it manages to make it so you dont feel like your just re-reading HK or something.
It feels very identical to me, not only is the art similar, but the story and occurances are as well. For example, both female leads don't know how to find their own bed after the lights have gone out ^^; Very charming if you have read one to read the other, even though it feels a bit repetative.
A girl has to disguise herself as a boy for one reason or another. Her love interest is her roommate, but complications arise when the roommate starts to fall in love with the girl. They are both really well done.
My first impression of Power!! (also known as Girl Got Game) was that it was basically the basketball version of Hana-Kimi. There are huge differences between the two -- the biggest being that Power!! is comedic where Hana-Kimi is dramatic -- but they share the same basic dynamic, girl pretending to be boy lives with boy. Gender-bending has never been so hilarious!
If you like Hana Kimi, then you might wanna try reading Power!! Girl got Game. The plot is not similar but yet so close. In hana kimi, the main female character disguising as a boy to meet the one she idolized that is one of the high jump athlete, while in power, the female character disguising as a boy because her father told her so in order for her to join the well known high school basketball club. But one thing in common about this two girl is they just funny and hilarious, and the fact that they had to hide their identity.
Both are incredibly similar. They both are in situations where they have to pretend to be a boy and live with other boys. They also both end up falling for the one they have to share a room with. And they both involve sports. Except girl got game is more comedy and hana kimi is more romance. They're both great though =D
Power!! and Hana-Kimi are both gender-bender series, both are very funny comedies and characters are simply hilarious. But let me tell you a secret: I enjoyed Power!! more than Hana-Kimi. Why? Power!! is more comedy than shoujo, it contains more action + I absolutely LOVE pairing Kyo/Chiharu (and this statement comes from someone who usually hates shoujo... Power!! is shoujo for people who don´t like shoujo. Hana-Kimi is more about romance and such, but it´s still great and funny. I highly recommend both series.
Power!! is another gender-bender about a girl who has to cross-dress as a boy. The difference here is the girl is forced by her father in order to play on the top-ranked boys basketball team, and the focus on this series is comedy whereas Hana-Kimi has more drama.
If you loved the gender bender comedy of Hana Kimi you will enjoy Power - Girl Got Game. She is enrolled by her basketball loving father as a male at a school so she can play on the guys basketball team so she has to live in the guys dorm and hide the fact she's a girl. Lots of comedy and fun!!! Enjoy. Power is different enough from Hana Kimi that you won't feel like it's a copy and Power! is really really funny, like rolling on the floor funny.
Although the main ideas are the same, with a girl disguising as a guy and sports and whatnot, these stories are both unique and well-written.
Both stories are romance with a girl living with a guy who doesn't know her true gender at first. Although those are very similar already, the stories go different directions after that. One girl purposefully disguised as a guy to watch her idol high jump, while the other is forced to disguise herself by her father. Despite that, she has a sport she sticks to, unlike the other.
The girl's roommates are both similar in many ways. Their personalities, their reactions, etc.
If you liked "Hana Kimi" you will definitely like "Power!!" and vice versa, read more
Both have incredible comical aspects to the stories as well as a slight incorporation of drama. Additionally, they're both based during the main actresses' high school days. And, well, the main protagonists cross-dress, and are admired by main male students. Really, both stories have similar plots except Hana-Kimi is driven with one major goal while Ouran continues many episodes of stories that seem to not lead to a major plot ending as of yet, at least. Both are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the comedy and just overall amazingness of each story.
A girl who hides her identity and its surrounded by a lot of guys. In hana-kimi she goes to an all boys school just to see her idol, in ouran she must fulfill her debt so... she is forced :D both very funny and interesting stories
Both main female characters are posing as males in a school. Both are comedys and romance, though one leans more to romance, and the other leans more to comedy. Both main female characters have similar personality traits, straight forward and oblivious to the feelings of affection from the guys surrounding them. both are reverse harem.
Both are gender-blender manga, involving the heroine masquerading as a boy and living amongst beautiful bishounen. The only difference is that in Ouran, the host club know that she is a girl (but the customers don't ^_^) and in Hana-Kimi, only a couple people know. However, both are extremely well-written and a great read!
Really, the dynamics are quite similar, along with the basic premise: girl crossdressing as a boy go to a school.
Haruhi's is unintentional, Mizuki's is not.
Both mangas have the same feeling when you read them. Just give both a try! :)
Ouran and Hana-Kimi are both adorable Mangas about a girl disguised as a boy, who have to keep their real sex kept quiet. Both mangas are insanely entertaining and funny. They are also exceptionally heartwarming :)
If you liked one of these titles, then you'll probaly like the other. Both begin with a female character in boy's clothes who is mistaken for a boy. Both must hide their gender, but somone('s) discorver the 'he' is actually a 'she'. Both deal with homosexual relationships, but are not big on them. They're both romantic comedys that have obvious male leaders/choices. And both series have a love triangle within them. Trust me, if you like one of these series, you're going to love the other. :)
Both Hana-Kimi and Ouran have reverse harem romance setup and quite funny. I would say ~75% of Hana-Kimi is humor. There is more romance in Hana-Kimi than in Ouran, but the main plot lines follow a female pretending to be male and several key characters knowing her true identity. The main heroine in Hana-Kimi is a strong independent young women who are also very kind and great friends to the other main characters. Both tales are heart warming and revolve around school life. Hana-Kimi is highly recommended if you enjoyed Ouran!
In both series, the main feamale character cross dress as a boy and go about without anyone knowing. In Ouran, she didn't intend to look like a boy until she is forced to, due to a debt she owes. In Hana-Kimi, she purposely cross dresses to enter an all boys school, just to see her idol and pursuade him to re-start his dream. They are both HILARIOUS and has romance. I remember laughing all the time in those series. Both my favorites. When you finish reading them, you will feel such loss, but glad that the series is filled with funny, romantic, and fun parts. I REALLY enjoyed reading them. HIGHLY recommend them.  read more
Both mangas centre around a cross-dressing female protagonist, who find themselves surrounded by males. The cross-dressing becomes the central plotline to both mangas issuing their own problems. A slight difference, however, is the level of romance: Hana-Kimi focuses more on the romantic feelings of Mizuki, whereas Ouran weighs towards Haruhi's friendships and development into romance. Each manga left me laughing for the absurd yet relatable situations the characters find themselves in. Both mangas have their own distinctive set of characters which makes it hard not to fall in love with. Though they both give the comedic punch, they each are able to tackle with the more serious problems that arise. Lovers of shoujo manga will no doubt fall for one if they have read the other.  read more
There are too many similarities between these two to list them all. Both are about a girl who ends up in an all boys school, and falls in love with their roommate. Sano and Itou look really similar, and so does Mizuki and Takanashi. Both have really similar romances, and comedy. If you liked one, you'll most likely like the other :)
EXACTLY the same...seriously...the only difference is that the lead character doesn't actually want to go into the school, but is forced by her mother. Otherwise it's eerily familiar.
Its also does not play up the comedy as far as Hana Kimi does.
A girl having to disguise herself to go to an all-boys school. Although in Hana-Kimi she wanted to go, and in Boku ni Natta Watashi her mom made her. They both involve a pot of falling in love with their roommate and having to hide their secret (of being a girl).
They both revolve around a female character who has cross dressed to be able to get into an all boys school.
- they get into the school
- they get found out that they are female by their roommates
- they fall in love
They both pretty much have this same basic idea, but how each manga's plot is actually composed is different however, if you like one of these I'm sure you'll like the other one.
This manga and TCP has some parts in common --- but not much--- if you wanted Hana Kimi with more Action and different time settings (somewhat) then this is the manga for you! its unique and very readable although there are some parts that were boring in between important events and all.... * note that this manga has everything to do with the Mafia ...
Both these manga are gender bender stories taking place at a high school where students live in dorms. Of course, the schools are single-gender only. In hana-kimi it's an all boys school, while in Tenshi ja nai it's an all girls school. In both stories, the two main characters end up living in the same room, and one of them is dressing up as the other gender! And of course, the other roomate discovers this quite early in the series. Both are also very funny series and highly entertaining.
The girl & the boy share the same room in the dorm
At first she didint know of course that he was a guy then she discovered it ( like how sano discovered ashiya) & i just get the feeling that they are alike
because sano is popular & mizuki helps him out in his jumping thing
its the same in Tenshi Ja Nai Izumi ( the guy ) is hiding his idenity as a famous model & actress & hikaru helps him to cover his secret
So i guess if you liked Tenshi Ja Nai you will like Hana kimi for sure XD
Same type of situation, just swtiched around. Instead of a girl pretending to be a guy, there's a guy pretending to be a girl model. They also attend the same school and share the same room. It's pretty funny =)
both are about cute girls that disguise themselves to enroll in allboys schools
also both of them are discover and protected by their roomates wich ends up falling inlove with the girls.
Both stories are cute and touching
They both are about a girl following a boy they like and gets closer to them by attending an all boys school by cross dressing.
Uwasa is more mature then Hana because all of the nudity and sex scene. They both have a love triangle and are very similar.
Another love story that involves a girl crossdressing in order to get into an all boys school. In Kill Me Kiss Me, the main character switches places with an identical cousin to meet a male model and the story revolves around both of them in their new environment and the problems they encounter. While in Hana-Kimi, the main character enrolls in an overseas school to be closer to her athletic idol and ends up boarding in the same room with him <3 Both shoujo comedies.
both these manga are similar in genre. it's gender bender stories which taking place at samurai high school.it's about a twin kou,the brother,is very feminine.excels in cooking n stuffs like that.while tsukiko,the sister,loves fighting n she's like a samurai..the twins learn about the samurai high school where men test their strength and women test their femininity, but the only way they can attend is by swapping places.so i think both these manga are about cross dressing..enjoy:)
Both have the main girl having to live with other guys. They both include sports (one's volleyball, one's high jump and other stuff). They both are kind of tomboys but in the end the guy they like eventually falls for them. Hana kimi's more romance and crimsom hero's more sports, but they have a bit of each other too...
these mangas both pass off as the hilarious good-for nothing manga to pass time. Don't get me wrong; some of the time it was like that. But once you read deeper into them, you will notice a deeper theme and complicated relationships. Both have hilarious moments and bittersweet moments that will make you want so much more.
Both Sano (hana-kimi) and Arima (kare kano) to me are very similar the way they look and act and how are keeping all their family problems to themselves until they meet Mizuki (hana kimi) Yukino (kare kano) who i also think act alike because they are both really dense but very kind. Both Hana-kimi and kare kano are really good drama, romantic comedies I really enjoyed both these mangas :)
Both Maramalade boy and Hana-Kimi are alike because the main couple somehow end up living together and also a few of the characters seemed similar in both mangas: Minami Nanba(hana-kimi) for me is like Satoshi Miwa (marlade boy). Both are good romantic, comedy, dramas i really liked both mangas :)
- Gender bender
- Sports and overcoming difficultis; both in said sport and in the main-characters relationships
- Romance; much more so in Hana Kimi than Nonono though
A few differences is that Nonono is more focused on the sport aspect of it while Hana Kimi focuses more on the romance, but both are very good and entertaining gender-benders.
A girl cross dresses as a boy to enter an all-boys' school to follow another boy (whether romance or admiration). In Hana Kimi, the series is longer and the girl's real gender is the climax of the end of the story. In Gekkou Teien, the series is sweet and short and the girl's identity is already known.
The art in Gekkou is more appealing because it is more modernized (to me). Both rate at least an 8 because the storyline is believable and not too outrageous.
Both about a girl who moves into an all boys school to follow her dream. They have very strong likeable main characters and have similar audience.
However Classi9 is about music with a harem like setting where as Hanazakari is about sports and features a love triangle of sorts.
Both stories are about a girl, two guys (one guy always smiling & open-hearted, one guy shy & restrained) who stand by her side and support her. Even some mean persons change through experiencing the protagonist. Both mangas deal with school life and romance.
They are both about a girl dressing up as guys to go to an all-boys school, for some particular reason. However, Savage Garden has a more mature, darker feel, whereas Hana Kimi is more light-hearted and fluffy. They are both very good reads, nonetheless.
Both stories are lighthearted romantic comedies. Both main characters are strong-minded females who eventually get involved in a love triangle due to the strong and close ties with friends. Hana Kimi takes place during high school while Venus in Love takes place during college. If you liked one, you'll like the other.
Both involve a girl living as a guy, falling in love with the lead guy, and having another guy fall in love with them without realizing she is a girl. Both have moments of high comedy and are very enjoyable, though Love in the Mask is much more serious, dramatic, and at times tragic than Hazakari no Kimi Tachi e, which has a far more relaxed and easygoing feel to it, at least for the 40 chapters I have read so far.
Comedy and romance, what more can you ask?
They both have heroines that seem blunt, fangirlish, and happy-go-lucky. There's also heroes who can't seem to take a break because of worrying for they're crush. But there's a lot of laugh in both of them and did I say that both contains kissing monsters?
Both of these mangs are "gender-bender", Hanakimi deals with a girl dressing as a boy, and in W-Juliet there is a guy dressing as a girl. Both are very adorable romance stories with comedy. They're defenitely both worth reading :)
Both of these series deal with girls supporting a high jumper after they have been in an accident and helping them jump agian. Kakedashita is a one volume story, while HanaKimi is much longer...but both are just as enjoyable.
Both of these mangas feature the concept of cross-dressing and impersonating the opposite sex as a main theme, as well as major romantic involvement. However in Hana Kimi, it is a reverse situation and it is a female who is disguising herself as a man in order to attend an all-boys school.
The art and story of Hana Kimi is much more mature, though.
The female protagonists in both HK and PG are very similar; they are hot tempered, have effervescent vibrant personalities and do not fail to make you laugh. Both are constantly going beyond their means to help the male protagonists they adore and in turn lead to the build up of an enjoyable and entertaining plot. If you liked one, I would suggest trying the other!
Frankly, story-wise, it's different in plot though very similar in atmosphere. But the similarities with the characters are very uncanny.
It's pretty much that the main female protagonist is overly positive and her smiles brighten everyone she's with. She also creates a strong impact on everyone she interacts with. She sticks her nose in other people's business without telling the person concerned because she cares. She's clumsy and lacks self-awareness, too. Plus, almost any guy she hangs out/interacts with end up falling in love with her.
The main male protagonist has parental issues. They're perceived as stoic, but goes to great lengths to protect the main female protagonist. read more
