Both these manga are almost identical in every main aspect</br> </br> Similarities: </br> * Premise - Plane crash, abandoned island survival</br> * Non-humans as antagonists (insects, animals), most of which are extinct</br> * Copious amounts of fanservice and disproportionate breast sizes</br> * Generic, unlikeable male side characters abound </br> </br> Differences:</br> * Female protagonist in Kyochuu Rettou (KR), male in Eden no Ori (EnO)</br> * Seems to be a focus on insects in KR, while EnO has a more diverse selection</br> * No apparent elements of romance in KR (though saying that there are any in EnO would be misleading)</br> </br> Highly recommended if you're okay with mediocre character design and ridiculous amounts of fanservice, with some survival elements in between</br>
+ Almost identical premise + Both parents are male + Slice of Life - My Girl (MG) is a Seinen, while Chichi Kogusa (CK) is a Shounen - Much different ways of handling plot/character development - The children are different genders - The children have almost opposite temperaments - CK seems episodic, while MG is not - MG has a softer art-style, while CK has the more traditional inked look
+ Similar plot, characters, plot development, and setting + Both feature female kemonomimi romantically paired with a male human + Explores interspecies relationships + Comedies - Very different art style - Different demographic - Koi Neko is a shounen series, while The Star of Cottonland (TSoCL) is a shoujo - TSoCL has much more plot and character development, and a focus on aestheticism - Koi Neko has a contemporary setting, while TSoCL has a much more rural feel - TSoCL has an anime adaptation
+ Both have the premise of an undercover male protagonist seeking out corrupt rulers in an Imperialist setting with a female companion<br> + Heavily influenced & based upon various East Asian folk tales<br> + Aestheticism plays a significant role in a majority of scenes<br> + Similar plot development<br> <br>- Very little romantic development in Shin Shunkaden (Shun)<br> - ShinShun is noticeably shorter than Shin Angyo Onshi (Angyo), hence less adventuring<br> - ShinShun puts the female protagonist in the spotlight, while the reverse is true for Angyo<br> - ShinShun is a shoujo, while Angyo is noticeably seinen, with a much darker tone overall <br>
+ About cats + Art-style + Narrative style + Slice of life + 4-komas + Comedies - Different authors/artists
+ Both feature a male and female main character, who are detectives + Both have very similar settings, with strong Mystery undertones + Both take place mainly in 'contemporary' Japanese-style neighbourhoods + Similar 'dark' Seinen atmosphere + Both make use of black humour - Paranoia Street (PS) has a much more light-hearted and casual approach to its plot than Soil does - PS has more elements of the Adventure genre than Soil - PS reads more like a collection of cases, as opposed to Soil's linear plot - Soil has much more character development - The female protagonists have drastically different personalities and physical appearances - The male protagonists have drastically different personalities and physical appearances
+ Both feature the theme of older male protagonist + younger female protagonist, who both live together for various reasons + Both female protagonists exhibit tsundere characteristics, though much more subtle than the usual type + Lots of (relative) character development - Living Game (LG) has a lighter, contemporary setting, while Blood Alone (BA) is darker/ more gothic, with supernatural elements - The male protagonist of BA is generally much more competent than the one in LG - BA explores the relationship (romantic or otherwise) between the two characters more in depth than LG. Most of the emotional development in LG is left up to the reader to infer
* The art style (especially facial expression & body proportions) are quite similar * There's the 'wealthy family in a mansion' theme * Both contain lots of gore/uncensored death scenes
Similarities: Same assertive,airheaded female protagonist traits.Even down to the hair length and colour. Both feature school students & a school setting. Differences: A Bias Girl features settings other than school (although it's still a prominent focus). P. Nee-san is much more surreal in nature, while still keeping to the bounds of the Slice of Life theme.
Both have that surreal feeling, where anything can happen. In terms of setting & mood, Bobobo is on the lighter, shonen-esque action/adventure side, while CLnO has a definite slice of life/ mild romance feel, with noticeably more humour aimed at an older demographic. The tying similarity between the two is their gag nature and not much else, so one should take this recommendation with a tablespoon of salt, at least.
The theme of 'Young girl plus older guardian' is there. With BA there's a noticeable romantic undertone; Usagi Drop has little to none.
Similar radical-thinking female protagonist, plot development, and 4koma style
Same Gothic atmosphere with demons and a petite, long-haired, semi-protagonist.
Female protagonist, similar environment and plot structure T.L. is more Victorian/Gothic than the Steampunk D x M though
If you like your female protagonists on the petite side, don't be afraid to check this out. While Toradora! is not as 'mature' as Toshiue no Hito in terms of both graphic scenes and character development, the plot and art quality are both solid, with real romantic development (and conclusion).
