About the only similarity in plot between I My Me! Strawberry Eggs and Gokujo Seitokai is that they both take place at school. What really makes these two series a pair however is their shared sense of the comic absurd. With both series, you will find yourself chuckling not only at the intended puns and quips, but also at yourself for being suckered into characters who are so incredibly out of the norm.

If you liked either Best Student Council or Midori Days, you can check out the other show. There is the obvious plot similarity of a lead character in a school setting who interacts with a puppet throughout the story, but there is more than this that ties the two.
Both Rino Rando, the lead female of BSC and Seiji Sawamora, the lead male of MD, are somewhat social misfits - Rino lost her mother and harbors a sunny facade that hides her deep sorrow at her situation, and Seiji has few friends as he is always getting into fights as his school's most notorious delinquent. Both characters need to find their place in the world, and are able to do that with the assistance of their puppet friend.
Pucchan is the male puppet friend Rino has inherited from her mother, and Midori Kasagano is the female puppet that suddenly appears on Seiji's right hand. Both puppets are mysteriously self-animated and independenttly opinionated and an indelible and integral part of their wearer's life.
While MD does have more of a romantic twist to the plot, both are comedies featuring the antics of a character trying to fit into a world in which they don't really fit in and where they stand outside. If you like either Midori Days or Best Student Council, check out the moppet-driven story of the other.
Sorata Kanda has a real problem - he just can't say no to the cute face of a kitten! However, his lovely strays have finally landed him in trouble, as his dorm doesn't allow keeping pets. Given an ultimatum to get rid of the cats or move out, Sorata makes the mistake of standing up for himself and finds himself exiled to Sakurasou, the home of misfits the school doesn't know what to do with. Yet the more he spends time there, Sorata sees they all have their own incredible talents. None, however, enthralls him more than the latest arrival: Mashiro Shiina, a world class artist who is seemingly incapable of feeding or clothing herself! Since none of the other residents have a shred of responsibility, the onus of 'Mashiro Duty' falls to Sorata; what will become of Sorata and his latest stray, and will he ever achieve his goal of escaping Sakurasou?
If you enjoyed Best Student Council, you may wish to check out Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo. Both shows feature a female character that is a social misfit surrounded by a world of specially talented people where they strive to belong and be happy.
Naive and seemingly talentless female lead Rino Rando has her puppet friend Pucchan in BSC to help her fit into her surprising new role as Secretary to the all-powerful Miyagami Best Student Council. Male lead Sorata Kanda has to take care of naive and innocent-in-every-way Mashiro Shino, a brilliant female artist who spectacularly fails at life in most all other ways at the prestigious Suimei University of the Arts in SNP.
Both shows are episodic in nature and character-driven, using humor and absurdist situations to display the developnment and growth of the characters in the story. If you liked following the cast of Best Student Council, do yourself a favor and get to know the cast of Sakurasou no Pet.
