the main characters [girls] are always trying their best in everything, but the main characters [boys] always seem better than them in whatever they do. although kaze no stigma is more fantasy-like, and kaichou wa maid-sama is more realistic, they are both nice anime.
both are about a group of boys liking one girl, and their adventures. although hanasakeru seishonen takes place around the world, ouran high school host club takes place mainly in school.
d.gray-man has a energetic main character [allen walker] who is a lot like the main character in naruto [naruto uzumaki], a cold-attitude friend or comrade [kanda yuu and sasuke uchiha] who has a dark past, and an energetic female character who wants to protect their friends [lenalee lee and sakura haruno]. both stories are on fighting, but are laced with humour along the series. if you liked one of them, you may like the other. i cannot guarantee that you will absolutely like it, as everyone has their own unique preferences.
