Chobits and Ai Yori Aoshi are very similar when it comes to love. I think that you'd love this story if you're into the quirky romance that goes on.
Chobits and Aoi Yori Aoshi are alike in many ways, and most who like one will, in my oppionion, like the other.
The main thing the two have in common is the 'forbidden relationship' feel:
In Aoi Yori Aoshi, they are forbidden to see eachother due to the respective ranks of their families.
In Chobits, they are forbidden due to the fact that they are of differant spicies.
Yukino had it all. Brilliant, athletic, popular and pretty, she was the perfect school girl with many friends and admirers. But then one fateful day she met her match: a handsome young man named Arima. Now, not only is he beating her at her own game, she's becoming more and more dismayed to learn that she's developing her first real feelings of romance. Can Yukino maintain her model student appearance, or will love ruin all her plans?
In both series love is a complex matter in which the couples fight to balance regular life and their love. While Kare Kano is more focused on school life, Ai Yori Aoshi is more focused on how they deal with the developing relationship.
Both "His and Her Circumstances" and "Ai Yori Aoshi" give you a similar feel because both assure you that things will work out, even though there are sometimes difficult problems along the way.
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou and Ai Yori Aoshi are very similar in a number of respects. The romance in both stories is between a young woman who has been raised in the happiest of family circumstances, and a young man whose family circumstances are burdened with physical and emotional pain. The two couples must go through different but equally burdensome obstacles to reach the point where they can declare their love in public.
More than anything else, however, the couples are strong. They will not let their love weaken, no matter what troubles may come their way. This is a charm shared by both series, and a good reason to assume that, if you like the one, you will like the other.
Maiku Kamishiro has always had a photo of himself as a child in front of an old house with a young girl. One day after spotting the building in a news report, the high school boy moves to the countryside to live in the house from the picture. While living alone, making ends meet by working as a freelance programmer, Maiku gets the shock of his life when not one, but two girls turn up on his doorstep claiming to be his twin sister! With the lively Miina and timid Karen both possessing the same photograph, the pair begins living with the confused Maiku as they try to figure out which one of them is actually his sister.
If you like the Girl-Boy relationship plot incorporating a childhood mystery, as well as the quiet setting and the funny quid pro quo, you'll certainly like both series
Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.
Both AYA and KGnE deal with teen issues around love. They are tear-jerking at times and are wonderful because of the loyalty and hard decisions the teens make.
Both KGnE and AYA deal with a main character who falls for a girl, but once he finally has her, problems start to arise. While KGnE has a more serious side, AYA is lighter; but the main character faces similar problems in both anime.
She cooks, she cleans, and is a lethal fighting machine. Mahoromatic, former Vesper battle android, has chosen to give up her weapons, extending her remaining life from 37 to 398 days. As Misato Suguru's maid, she fights battles of another sort, fending off an amorous teacher on one hand, ecchi magazines on the other. Can Mahoro save Suguru's innocence?
Both of these series have a similar warm and loving tone mingled with the usual ecchi comedy. Romantic comedies are a dime a dozen, but these two really stand out.
