Both series have a guy who likes the heroine, and doesn't want to give up. Both heroines are strong, and are both blunt. Differences are that the guy in namai is very masculine while the guy in honey boy is very feminine. Both are cute shoujos so if you like one youll like the other.
>Both male MCs from these mangas confessed their feelings for the female MC's, at the very beginning. Afterwards male MCs are always trailing behind female MCs' backs.
>Female MCs forces themselves not to display flustered emotions to the male MCs, but sometimes male MCs notices these.
>Female MCs are Kuuderes.
>Male MCs are very affectionate to the female MCs
In Otomen, Ryo is a skilled and spartan girl trained by his father who is a police officer. She can't cook or sew. She's strong, and handles well the danger.
Asuka on the other hand, is the captain of the kendo club, and he's really skilled in martial arts. But secretly, he sews stuffed animals, cooks delicious food, bakes cakes and cookies, and likes a lot of things considered girly.
Like Shiro does for Mei, he makes the lunch for Ryo, and he likes her strength. Like Mei, Ryo admires the things that Asuka can do, and she is unable to do.
Both stories involve a boy who has an interest in girly & cute things. Although both stories are pretty similar--boy with feminine interests falls for a girl who lacks feminine interest--but the story lines are different enough that one or the other is not a direct copy cat. Both are extremely enjoyable and I highly recommend both if you are interested in girly-boy stories.
Same sense of humour and same art style. Mei Sengoku reminds me a lot of Seo/Kashima in terms of their personalities. Gekkan is funnier but Mizutama has more fleshed out characters and more of a linear plotline.
These don't exactly have the most similar stories, but I feel like the characters are kinda similar. They are both adorable and funny!
Miyamura and Fuji both have long hair. (Even though Miyamura cuts his)
Hori and Sengoku both are strong women.
The art in these mangas are very alike, and I know if you enjoy this anime, you will enjoy Mizutama Honey Boy!
Both series feature feminine boys that fall for a girl. Although the personalities of the female lead are different, both manga give off a similar feeling especially in the aspect that the female leads are both reluctant to accept the feelings of the male lead.
Both manga are relatively light-hearted and funny. If you like one, the other will probably be to your liking as well.
Both series are shoujo that take place in highschool. The guy plays basketball in harumatsu bokura, and in mizutama honey boy the girl is in the kendo club. Both are shoujo comedy so if you like shoujo you'll like either.
both have strong manly female lead who protect the main guy. every chapter is really hilarious and will hurt ur stomach!
difference- # MHB has girly male lead but SOB has popular male lead
# in MHB, guy falls in love first but in SOB girl falls in love first
- They both have Strong Female leads who are boyish that cause the other females around them to fall for them or think that they're cool like a guy.
- Hilarious misunderstandings.
- In Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko, the girl MC confesses to the guy while in Mizutama Honey boy the feminine boy confesses to the manly girl
- Both of these stories have the MCs trying to overcome the "friendzone" (In Tomo-chan, Tomo is the one having a huge crush on the Male MC, while in Mizutama, the Male MC is the one with a huge crush on (Sengoku) the strong female lead.
