Keiichi Morisato is just your average college student until one day, fate interjects as he makes a call for take-out food. Unknown to him, he reaches the Goddess Help Line, and contacts a goddess named Belldandy, who grants him a wish. Thinking it to be a joke, Keiichi wishes for her to be his girlfriend 'forever'.
Kei Kusanagi is a shy teenage boy with no romantic experience whatsoever... until he finds out that his hot new teacher is actually an alien! In order to conceal her identity, the two are forced into a pretend marriage... but is it really a pretense, or are they actually falling in love?
Both the plot and idea are very alike in these two anime. Please Teacher and Ah My Goddess are both romantic comedies where the romance isn't pushed back too much. If you want another good romance story with a lot of humour, you should check this one out.
Both of these stories are about a poor and useless sap who finds himself guiltlessly in a long-term, intimate one-on-one relationship with someone way out of his league.
They are different in the fact that Please Teacher has a progressive story line, where Ah! My Goddess tends to be more episodic with smaller plot arcs.
Many parallels between the two love stories that other posters have noted (nonhuman but beautiful female makes contract with ordinary male human, followed by visits from nonhuman older relative and nonhuman bratty imouto-chan and by an eventual separation crisis), but two things rarely mentioned are (1) the female love interest in both is voiced (in Japanese) by Inoue Kikuko, and (2) Hiroaki Gouda was heavily involved in the production of both (he directed OMG and was the character designer for Please Teacher). Sure, Please Teacher is a little more H, but the look and feel of the two series are just so similar -- partially because some of the same people made them happen.
In both these series a college student
finds their life suddenly changed for the better after a chance encounter with a beautiful woman who later becomes their love interest. Also, the main characters are very similar
Both of these shows involve a normal guy suddenly having a strange girl trown into their life. The girls are also both stuck with them and closely. Both have great comedy about their strungle to get closer as couples. Also in both they must keep the girl's idetity a secreat. Both are full of laughs, sweet moments, and cuteness.
Sudden-girlfriend-appearance, misunderstandings forcing the main characters to live together, and otherworldly beings showing up on the protagonist's doorstep, what could be more similar?!
Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
Like Ah! My Goddess, Chobits is another strange tale about a young man in school, who finds out what 'true love' really is in an odd sequence of events. If you liked one of these series, you should enjoy the other.
If you liked Ah! My Goddess, you would like Chobits because both are really cute love stories with a male lead and and a "non-human" female lead. Both series struggle with the same paradox: how do you confess your feelings (and admit them to yourself) of being in love with a goddess or machine?
Take a normal boy and put him in an extraordinary circumstance and you have a recipe for a great anime. If you like comedy, drama, and romance then Ah My Goddess and Chobits are right up your alley.
While the main character in Chobits is not quite as much of a loser as Keichi in Oh! My Goddess, both anime create a believable fantasy about a guy who gets a girl he doesn't believe he's worthy of. OMG, though, is much more beautifully-drawn and has a better story.
both are about hapless guys who's lives change drastically when attractive,clueless girls stumble into their lives through unusual circumstances. both try to be gentlemen while trying to explore their feelings for the girl with unusual powers. although there is more fan service in chobits.
Both series have a shy guy with a great girl.
Those girls aren't exactly your average highschool girl type, and both of those girls don't know much about the outside world, which creates awkward situations.
Both of them contain a high amount of humor, mistakes, miscommunications and are great animes.
I'd say, if you like one of them, you'll probably like the other one as well.
Chobits and AMG are two shows about a regular guy suddenly ending up living with a girl from one day to the other (an angel in AMG and android in Chobits to be precise). That's not where the similarity ends either. Both anime are romance series full of comedy where the two eventually hit obstacles they have to overcome in order to stay together. If you liked AMG, be sure to check Chobits out!
Both of these shows feature a loving girl that only wants to make the boy she loves happy. In Chobits the characters face more problems due to the girl being a robot, and in Ah! My Goddess they start out really strong and only start having any troubles near the end of the OVA.
These series each focus around a rather clueless/innocent male suddenly getting very close to an even more clueless/innocent female. If you enjoy that type of dynamic, with slow budding romances, these series go well together.
Take your average male student, and give him the girl of his dreams. Except, she isn't just any girl. Chii's an A.I. without a memory, and Belldandy's a goddess with heavenly powers. Hideki and Keiichi have basically no clue what to do with such a girl. Aside from Ah! My Goddess's older animation style, they are quite similar. I definitely think you'll like one if you liked the other.
Hideki and Keiichi are very similar - both incredibly naive and socially awkward college students, and both have big hearts and are fundamentally sweet.
There are so many similarities between these two animes, I think anyone who enjoys one will almost certainly enjoy the other... Chii and Belldandy are so alike. Both very innocent and naive to the ways of the world, both adorable and beautiful at the same time. Neither are human, which leads to them having very similar difficulties in dealing with society... Chii --> Panties. That's all I need to say on that~
They also both have a 'queen bee' on their cases, which is equally as annoying in both animes. Very catty, those 'popular' girls.
Aoi Sakuraba, heir to the Sakura department store, has only one thing on her mind-- her beloved. Betrothed from a very young age, she has been in love with him, Kaoru Hanabishi, ever since. After Kaoru left his family, their bethrothal was nullified. Aoi sets out to find him. Will they be able to stand against the barriers that will try to keep them apart?
The story lines of both Ah! My Goddess and Ai Yori Aoshi distill down to a single central theme. That is loyalty! Kaoru Hanabishi and Keiichi Morisato have very little going in their favor on the surface. Very few find the real Kaoru or Keiichi until someone really special comes into their lives. For Kaoru it is Aoi Sakuraba his formerly bethrothed. For Keiichi it is a goddess named Belldandy. Both Aoi and Belldandy see more in their men than the outside world can see. Making the men see it is another matter.
Both anime are simple. They are just very romantic. The main hero is a boy attending school. Suddenly, a nice girl appears in his life and starts to live with him. Together, they come through various situation - romantic, funny, confusing and sometimes even sad. However, there are soon more girls in Ai Yori Aoshi and there are more sexual overtones I think while Ah my Goddes deals with magic..
Both series are about a couple that must over come many obstacles for their love. Both femals leads are girls that are just too good to be true for the male leads. They will do anything for the ones that they love. If you liked one you'll like the other.
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Both Love Hina and Ah! My Goddess involves a guy who essentially is unsuccessful with girls, who lives in a big house with a number of women. The guy will fall in love with one of them. The other girls will sometimes try to mess it up and sometimes try to help their relationship.
Both series' humour is concentrated at either embarrasing situations, women doing unfeminine things or the male lead's friends totaly messing something up. Ie both are really funny series. ^_^
In Love Hina there is, however, very few magical girls. So if you liked that in Ah! My Goddess you will be a bit disappointed with Love Hina - but only a bit. There are magical girls in Love Hina, they just don't appear as often.
Even though the situations are different and so are the characters' personalities, I recommend these anime because they still have many similarities. The male is single and always misunderstood because of his clumsiness and actions, but he tries his best to be true to himself and those around him. The characters are given a chance to get what they want in life, but they must earn it by overcoming what they think they can't: becoming confident in themselves.
It's sad to say that when a boy is in love, it's hard to tell how he might act. AMG and Love Hina are funny love stories to have at home, and are fit for all ages.
both these series are about a down on his luck loser who ends up getting a hot girl how they do it however is where they quite differ as one in this case keitaro urashima ends up becoming the manager of an inn which he finds out the hard way is really an all girls dorm with quite the crew of characters who at first dont like him a bit and like even less now that he's the manager of their dorm.
but in the other however the way he keiichi morisato in this case ends up with the girl of his dreams the goddess beldandy is as he's dialing he calls a wrong number and she comes to him from his mirror shocked at what just happened he decides to make the wish of a lifetime:to have her as his girlfriend forever.
as the story progresses however the two face a lot of hardships trials and tribulations as keiichi stays with beldandy there seem to be no end to the things trying to pull the two apart whether it be the so-called queen of the campus or perhaps a demon named marller or even beldandy's bratty sister skuld despite her older sister urd's attempts at pushing the two closer together.
as for keitaro a recurring promise that he made 15 years ago to go tokyo u with a girl leads him to believe that one of the girls particularly the one he's in love with naru narusegawa is the girl whom he made his promise with but it is later revealed that such is not the case but through hard times the two stick it out together and manage in the end to fall in love with each other on their way to making it into tokyo u together
overall i would so totally recommend both these animes as they are actully quite a lot of fun to look at and i enjoyed both of them as i am sure you will too especially if the classic romantic comedy drama anime is your style iwould most definitely recommend both as worth watching because what ifound is that not only are both quite funny both they also have quite the serious side to them most fans would sooner discriminate against them calling them harem animes and not even give them a second thought however if you give them a chance you'll find that these anime are just as much worth watching as any other anime!
it-s the same story situation and characters , one that carry inside love but can-t say to her lover
Yota is a young man who is in love with his friend Moemi, but there's a catch: she's confessed her love for his best friend! Heartbroken, he finds himself in a mysterious video store that offers him Ai, a video girl who can fulfill his every desire. Thanks to his broken VCR, this dream becomes reality when she suddenly... emerges from the TV?! With a real life video girl on his hands to give advice and set him straight, Yota might just stand a chance of winning over the heart of Moemi, and curing his unbearable heartache...
Video Girl Ai and Oh! My Goddess both use a very common fantasy woman to help a boy realize what love truly is. They each have distinct styles, but the themes are the same.
Both series have a very sugary sweet romance that involves a magical girl with a normal guy. If you like that type of premise, then both Ah! My Goddess and Video Girl Ai are for you.
Both series are about forbidden love around either goddess or video girl. If you like fantasy & forbidden love with a side of comedy, you will surely like either one of these.
