It's been a while since I've rewatched Ouran back in 2009 but I will never forget how it made me laugh and moved me with each character development. Truthfully, I've only seen 3 eps so far of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun but I've laughed and giggled in each one. I like the main heroine, Sakura, because like Haruhi, she doesn't get carried away into each character's unique world, and like in ouran, the guys are handsome, and plus, gekkan shoujo has their own Prince. (And Nozaki-kun's tall height and sexy short black hair reminds me of Mori-senpai.)
I'm highly recommending this anime because of its
A bunch of insane, lovable losers get together in a club of some sort and beautiful, beautiful shenanigans occur. Gorgeous comedy in both of them, though Ouran is more romantic and Nozaki is more pure comedy.
The plots are different. But I find similarity in comedy: how high the frequency I laughing while watching, and how loveable characters in both series ...
It is also a shoujo parody, with colorful unique characters and a goofy, light energy. (And if you like Nozaki-kun, Ouran is the ESSENTIAL shoujo parody show, go watch it NOW!)
Both defy gender conventions, do not take themselves seriously and have zany hi-jinks amongst a colorful cast of characters. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaku-kun is more comedy and less drama than OKHC. Both are refreshing to watch and treat their characters of all sexes respectfully.
They both play on shoujo tropes in a way that is self-aware eg. prince types; serious, oblivious types. They're both relatively short and very funny, with characters that will reach your heart. They're both lighthearted and would suit a young teenage audience.
Both series have characters who queer gender, overt homos, and well-rounded female protagonists who get annoyed by the men around them.
Just delightful <3
They're both comedic pokes at the shoujo genre and the cliches it holds, and I feel like they're both hugely appreciated by their watchers. They're light-hearted and easy to watch, and the humour is (in my opinion) top notch in both shows.
While Ouran is a reverse harem and GSNK isn't, both have very colorful characters, similar humor, and they both play with shoujo tropes. Also, Nozaki reminds me of Mori and Kashima reminds me of Tamaki.
Both shows, in addition to being instant mood-boosters, are clever parodies of the shoujo genre. It's easy to tell how much love went into their productions based on the writing quality alone, and even moreso when paired with the almost universally perfect performances from their casts. Easily two of the funniest anime, if not shows in general, I've ever had the pleasure of watching.
1. Characters are strikingly similar in both anime, if you liked one, you will like the other.
2. GSN the male lead is dense, OHHC the female lead is dense.
3. Very melodramatic in terms of humor and personalities but extremely hilarious
GSNK and OHSHC are episodic animes that consist of people living their daily lives at a bizarre but interesting school environment (and outside the school as well). The way I like to describe the two is "dramatic characters in a semi-realistic environment". Both are about the daily interactions of classmates. In one, the main characters are part of the school's host club, while in the other, the characters are part of a "group of students who help in manga work".
Both animes are classified as rom-coms, although the "romance" part isn't as pronounced as the "comedy" part. They are both lighthearted and fun
Both are Parodies of typical shoujo trophes.
Ouran hereby is a parody of a reverse harem, whereas Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is more of a general parody of an amalgamation of shoujo trophes.
- Visually similar.
- Both are full of cute fluff.
- Both keep things humorously light with lots of subverted character types.
- So if you like one you will definetly like the other.
These two animes bring a light hearted feel with a majority of comedy and a hint of romance. The characteristics of the characters are somewhat the same and also bring the watcher a light hearted feel. Also with a similarity being that they are both set in a high school environment. I highly recommend both.
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is a romcom that's light on the romance, heavy on the comedy.
Both are shoujo animes like you've never seen them before- inverting and satirizing common shoujo tropes, sparse romantic moments that have you begging for more, and are followed by over the top gags bound to leave you in stitches.
Unlike OHSHC, Gekkan Shoujo's titular character Nozaki spends his time observing his friends as inspiration for his own shoujo manga, while unknowingly being caught in a romance himself with the viewpoint character, Sakura.
If you're looking a great laugh mixed with some heart-racing romance, Gekkan Shoujo
If you have watched Gekkan Shoujo, then its absolutely necessary that you watch at least some shoujo anime (or better yet, read manga, if you're into that sort of thing). However, shoujo, with its odd art style and often bizarre plots (that Gekkan Shoujo makes fun of) can be hard to stomach for anyone that doesn't enjoy it already.
Luckily, Ouran is a "light shoujo", which makes fun of itself and is surprisingly self-aware for its genre; it also has very little if any "shoujo drama" that often puts off viewers. If it doesn't make you want to watch more shoujo, it will at least
The comedy is very funny. The best rom-com anime out there. The characters are very funny. Both anime is worth of your time.
