Massugu ni Ikou shares the pleasant feel of Aishiteruze Baby, through its style, animation, and gentle delivery. It's shorter, possibly more light-hearted, and about dogs, but I'm sure you'll appreciate it if you liked Aishiteruze Baby's story and feel.

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
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?
Aishiteruze Baby and Please Teacher differ in almost every comparable aspect, yet I believe these two anime compliment each other nicely. Both have male characters that find someone they love, but circumstances attempt to ruin their relationships. Also, both Aishiteruze Baby and Please Teacher have the ability to invoke emotions such as sadness and happiness. The episodes were never boring and each anime not only allowed the viewer a glimpse into the lives of the main characters, but also into the daily troubles and secrets of other families.
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.
Aishiteruze Baby and Please Twins both invoked strong emotions from me. When a particular anime can truly bring across such feelings you know that you have been lucky. Aishiteruze Baby focuses on the life of a high school student, the school playboy, who now has to take care of a small girl. This child teaches him love, but also the heartache and hardships of the world. Along the way he discovers that he loves one particular classmate, but she faces her own personal demons. The episodes focus on Kippei's, the main character of Aishiteruze Baby, ability to love and care for the young child, but also to love or at the least understand the problems of the classmate he loves. Please Twins focuses on a high school student who one day meets two young women. One is around his age and the other is younger. Both have a picture that contains a boy and a girl. This boy is their brother. Both girls stay at Maiku Kamishiro's, the main character, house, and they soon realize they love him. The only problem is that only one of them is a relative, which leaves the other girl as a stranger. The story revolves around the feelings that each girl emanates, and also what will become of the three of them.
