Aside from sharing the half-manga, half-anime shoujo feel, Aishiteruze Baby and Bokura ga Ita have similar approaches to their romances. The major difference between the two, though, is that Bokura ga Ita lacks an abhorrently obnoxious little brat at the center of the romance, and instead orchestrates its drama through personality flaws in its characters. Still, putting my dislike for whiny children aside, the romantic atmospheres are quite comparable, so if you enjoyed one you'd more than likely enjoy the other.
If you liked bokura ga ita, you wont miss anything if you watch aishiteruze baby and vice versa. Both are quite slow and both mix love with some kind of block which totally stops the stops the story. Both are very cute and loveable and try to accurately understand the characters emotions.
Aishiteruze Baby and Bokura ga Ita both have a very slow paced plot line. Not that the series drag on but they are very in depth when in comes to character emotions and feelings develop over a longer period of time. They each have a relationship obstacle that the main characters must try and over come through out the series.

However, Kotonoha isn’t the only one with eyes for Makoto - a fact that any horny teenager would be delighted with. With endless temptations, lies and heartbreak at every turn, Makoto and Kotonoha’s relationship will soon be put to the ultimate test...
Both having took place in school and have elements that could happen in real life are truely what make these anime similar. They both have a rushed intro but, getting to the point is just what makes both of the anime great. They both have mostly kissing scenes and make you want to yell at the television because you are so into the plot.
Well, these two have the same concept of the love triangle. They both suffer and feel pain because of love. It definitely bring tears to your eyes as it progresses.
Bokura ga Ita and School Days involve very real life situations. The dramatic and intense moments played out in each are real life occurrences that could potentially happen. The over dramatic, almost manic feelings portrayed in both series are what make this recommendation.
The average Tsukushi Makino attends the snobby, elite Eitoku Academy, which is dominated by the Flower Four (F4) – the sons of the most powerful families. Like the rest of her classmates, Tsukushi keeps a low profile until one day she can stand it no more! For her obstinance, the F4 declare war and it's Tsukushi against all. In the middle of it all, she finds herself drawn strangely close to two of the F4; they might not be as bad as they seem. With her heart torn between two boys, will Tsukushi be able to find the love she desires?
The main theme of these anime is not quite a simple love-story. Both series have dramatic and humorous parts always make you feel the situation and leave in hopes that everything's gonna be alright. But i think Bokura Ga Ita is much more sad and may be realistic.
You will find out just how hard relationships in a high school setting can be in both Hana Yori Dango and Bokura ga Ita. The main characters in each are quite similar, the heroines are sweet and meek-ish types while the male leads are far more mature seeming than their years but with an distant personality and arrogant attitudes. The couples have to strive to suvive!
Miki is a normal high school student, living a normal life, but one day she is welcomed home with an announcement: her parents have decided to get divorced and switch partners with close friends of the family. The reason? Love. But to add to Miki's disbelief, she may get a new "brother," and he may just happen to be in love with her...
"Marmalade Boy" and "Bokura ga Ita" are very similar. They both focus on a couple and then show all that they went through in the relationship. Marmalade Boy is comedy/romance/drama, while Bokura ga Ita has much more drama and less comedy. Obviously the quality is different, since Marmalade Boy is about 10 years older, but the characters are still attractive and well-developed. If you liked one of them, you'll definitely like the other!
Both involve a sweet, spirited girl who falls in love with a quiet, aloof, handsome, and fan-girl-swarmed boy who, despite all odds to the contrary, happens to love her back. Both have another boy (or in Marmalade Boy, several boys) who try to steal the girl away. Also, both boys have a haunting secret in their past that threatens to tear the relationship apart. If you love a good anime that spends more time focusing on the actual relationship than on the falling in love segment (a lot of anime's don't have the couple get together until the last episode), then both of these anime are for you.
Mei Tachibana has had neither a friend nor a boyfriend in 16 years, and she doesn’t plan on ending that streak any time soon. The outcast learned years ago that social obligations only lead to pain, and has carefully guarded her heart to keep from getting hurt. However, the girl can’t stay withdrawn forever, especially after attracting the attention of the handsome Yamato, who finds her caustic personality interesting and strives to date her after she roundhouse kicks him down the stairs. But even the most earnest of romances can be crippled by jealousy and insecurity, and this pair has plenty of both. Can their feelings for each other overcome their own emotional weaknesses, or will this love perish before it even begins?
Both deal with being IN the relationship, rather then stalling for half the series for the ping pong romantic build up. So you actually get to see the couples in love. The male lead is significantly more popular than the female lead. Both are well written and really capture what it's like to be in love, and learning how to be in a relationship and make it work. 'Say I love you' does a wonderful job of showing weakness, self esteem, and the details that people go through in order to be social, or just simply liked. Anyone that's ever felt bullied, lonely, unwanted, unatractive, or socially stressed will find these animes comforting, especially 'say i love you'.
Both of these anime deal with teenage girl life. Both of the main girls deal with peer pressure, low self esteem, and boys. They don't understand love and both of the animes give you this "first love" feeling. The guys are pretty much the same as well. Though say"i love you" is more light hearted and bokura ga ita is more "dark" compared to it. it brings out the real deal. I found say"i love you" to be a fresh reminder of love. Plus both of the main girls have the same first name xD
