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...
Ouran Host Club and Fruits Basket have so much in common it's difficult to know where to begin. They have similar situations between the characters, right down to the guys realizing they like her and fighting over her while she is oblivious. The character designs are also very alike. I'd venture to say I'd pay you 50 Turkish lira if you liked one and not the other!
If you took away the background stories, both Fruits Basket and Ouran Host Club would be the same. Both are hilarious and have similar characters, including the character designs!
Fruits Basket and Ouran High School club are definitely not similar as far as plot, but they just... feel the same. Ouran is definitely a little more high octane as far as the random humor, but both have their touching and hilarious moments, and both have very very similar character designs (right down to the mix of chibi animation and regular kind). If you liked one, you'd surely like the other!
Both are amusing, lighthearted slice-of-life comedies with female protagonists.
Fruits Basket has the same light-hearted feel as Ouran High School. Both are inverse harem anime, where the woman is surrounded by men instead of vice versa.
Both anime have very similar characters: Yuki is very much like Tamaki in that both are highly revered by their peers and classmates and are looked up to as the leader within their community; Momiji is similar to Honey because they fit the genre of small cute boys who are older than they appear; Karezuma and Takashi both have a father complex due to an intertwined past with the recipient of their care; and Tohru and Haruhi both appear to be naive on the outside about certain things (especially romance), but are more inquisitive and analytical within their own thoughts.
The type of humour used in Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club is very similar, especially in the roles of the characters. All male characters have a cliche characteristic such as the cute/innocent, silly, and aloof. In both cases, a "poor" girl is forced into a "luxurious" world. The direction is very similar in that it's all-around comedy while still maintaining a dramatic center (near the end...). The main reason you'll like Ouran High School Host Club is that they focus on the characters more than the overall story. Lastly, there is hinted romance versus a complete exposure.
Although the plots of Fruits Basket & Ouran High School Host Club are different, the series feel very similar. Tohru of Fruits Basket and Haruhi of Ouran are working hard to fulfill their dreams to make their deceased mothers proud. Both series are reverse harems, and have a diverse group of very unique supporting characters. Tohru & Haruhi influence and are influenced by the other characters throughout the series and there is significant character development as a result. Tohru & Haruhi are also relatively poor girls who are suddenly surrounded by rich boys, so they often come across as somewhat naive (although Tohru seems more in awe that she knows such impressive people, while Haruhi is more cynical about the 'rich bastards'). Ouran is a bit more excessive in it's random, explosive humour, but overall they somehow seem very alike. Every time I watch one series, I immediately want to watch the other next, so I think you will, too!
The character of Tohru Honda is instantly likeable; she's a happy-go-lucky, kind and considerate person who just happens to be a little bit naive. These are exactly the character traits you find in Haruhi Fujiota, the star of 'Ouran High School Host Club'.
The similarities do not end there, both Tohru and Haruhi have lost their mothers and find themselves thrust into a world of crazy characters and strange happenings. The shows document how both characters, in their own way, touch the lives of those around them, bringing this about through comedic situations with elements of drama that will touch the heart. If you liked 'Fruits Basket' then this anime is an obvious 'next move'.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran Host Club are funny and very entertaining, yet each has some characters who struggle to admit they're in love with another person.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran are about a reverse harem, making the girl the center of attention in a group full of guys. The series both also deal with morality issues that are expressed throughout the show with a great deal of humor thrown into the mix.
If you liked the comedy and the many wonderful faces of Fruits Basket, then Ouran Host Club is your next bet! I thought I'd die laughing with all of the moping faces and growing mushrooms in people's storage rooms!
Apart from the same voice actor appearing in both (Honey-senpai and Momiji), the series are more alike than at first glance. Both of the main characters are outsiders who are accidentally let into an exclusive world. Little by little, their attitudes and personalities start to change those around them and even themselves.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket may have very different backstories, but the themes of each show are very similar (each containing a kind of "be yourself" message). The characters all share a sense of loneliness, and the heroine in each show is innocent and surrounded by attractive males that care about her (but don't necessarily have hidden agendas). Both shows are heartwarming and quirky and have a romantic feel, although their stories are built mainly on friendship.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran contain the same kind of humor. In both, there is a girl who is surrounded by boys. The characters are very likeable and every character's past is explained.
Although they have nothing in common when it comes to storyline, characters or music, both Ouran and Furuba 'feel' very much alike the instant you watch one after having watched the other. It's the same almost crazy kind of humour, at times interrupted by moments of emotion or even great sadness (though rather rarely in case of "Ouran"). Also, in both series there are female protagonists surrounded by lots of handsome boys.
As far as I am concerned, these two anime fit together like peas and carrots. If you liked one you will simply love the other, and for a smorgasbord of reasons.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket 'feel' much the same when you are watching them and share a very familiar mood. Their humor is similar, and is sure to cause maniacal laughter on many occasions. Also, both of these anime have the power to grab hold of your heart, and pile drive you with an array of emotions. The plots may be different, but the characters will create situations in both anime that is very reminiscent of the other. Either of these shows is certain to provide you with an all around warm feeling.
Both have a lot of the same humor and feel to the story line. A lot of the characters remind me of characters from the other series, for example Honey from Ouran and Momiji from Fruits Basket are extremely alike. While Fruits Basket can be a little more serious and Ouran seems to have a lot of humor, they both are worth a watch.
If you like Fruits Basket, then you would also like Ouran High School Host Club most likely, as it is about a young girl who is surrounded by young men, who help her and become her close friends as she goes through adolescence.
If you liked Fruits Basket you would also like Ouran because they're both about a girl who unexpectedly gets dragged into crazy and bizarre situations and also falls in love. Awwww!
Fruits Basket and Ouran both have funny beginnings, and become sad near the end. Each has guys who get the chicks, and there's always an odd one out.
If you've seen one of these anime and were left wanting more, then the other is a must. They are both very funny and share the same story about a poor girl taken in by a group of gorgeous and popular boys.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club feature a kind, brunette main character who meets a vast array of people, all with distinct personalities. Each series contains an unexpected twist which is revealed early on and affects the rest of the show. Some male characters from each show seem kind of similar - Haruhi & Tohru, Ayame & Tamaki, Momiji and Hunny - so if you have a favorite character from one show you may find someone else to love in the other! Both shows have a wonderful feel-good family vibe to them!
Both Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are funny series with hints of romance. The central theme for both is friendship and both have heroines who manage to see sides of people that were invisible to others.
You'll enjoy Ouran next because it basically spoofs the entire genre to which Fruits Basket belongs, whilst simultaneously attaining a similar level of deep characterisation by using individual episode arcs to delve into the lives of those it follows. Like Fruits Basket, Ouran mocks the whole bishounen gimmick, taking beautiful men and messing them up with weird traits. However, Ouran is slightly funnier in that it is far more comedy-based whilst Fruits Basket is a more accomplished drama.
Both Ouran and Furuba are hilarious; they'll leave you in stitches. Furuba has a darke/thicker plot though. Both have characters with strong personalities that interact perfectly with each other. It's interesting that the heroines, Tohru and Haruhi, have such contrasting personalities and yet have good morals that change those around them (although Haruhi probably learns/evolves more from the characters around her).
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club are incredibly charming and humorous at the same time. Although Tohru and Haruhi are as different as night and day, both stories have a similar feel - they are very uplifting and you cannot help but smile after watching. Also, while there is very little plot in both stories, the character development is outstanding. Sadly, by watching either of these anime, you do not get the "complete" story, so be prepared to read the manga afterwards!
Since both FB and Ouran are romances about a girl that had their mother die, they go good together. If you are a fan of romances, you should see these both.
Both series have female protaginsts who are very strong and independent. Both have a lot of comedy and a little romance. Very entertaining on both ends.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are anime that are not about fighting, but about changing your outlook on life. Both filled to the brim with humor and realistic social problems, they allow us to change and grow with the characters. Both of these series show how one person can change the lives of others.
They both have a similar kind of humour allthough ouran host club can be more random at times.Both light hearted and feature a strong romance theme.
It's very rare (at least, in my experience) to find an anime that carries a little bit of everything. Fruits Basket and Ouran do. They're the perfect mix of humor, romance, and the teenist bit of angst. I really don't know how else to describe it... on the surface, not much is similar, but they just feel similar. And both are a must for any hard-core shoujo fan.
Both anime are based around a girl, both girls mothers have died. Both of them are hilarious, if you haven't seen it you have to, the only thing is don't bother looking for it in english because I don't think they have it, OHSHC is mostly funny because of puns that are based on word similarities in the japanese language. They are both the best comedies but also cry moments in any anime I've seen
Series are alike. Both series have comdey and romance. If you like one of them you'll definately like the other one.
In both series a rather normal girl comes into the lives of boys who have strange personalities and habits.The girls start to play an important role and soon they become essential to them.They seem to be what brings balance to their crazy lives.Both anime funny and sweet with strong emotional connections developing in the course of their stories.A "must watch" if you liked Fruits Basket.
Both series involve a character who has lost a parent (their mother) and is also rather poor. x) Also, both main characters are thrust into situations where they meet new (and strange) people and have to adapt.
Both series are about a normal girl who gets caught up with a dysfunctional group of guys, leading them into all kinds of humorous situations. Despite all the lightheartedness, both series later reveal a surpising amount of depth in their characters.
Fruits Basket and Ouran are both "reverse harem anime" that center on how one girl slowly changes the lives of the guys around her, and how the guys become highly attracted to her. Also, both anime balance out the comedy and drama very well while portraying this theme. As a plus, the male characters are bish?nen.
These two animes are definitely different plot-wise, but similar to all the other recommendations, they just feel the same.
I think it's because of the same situation the main characters are in. Haruhi and Tohru both have a difficult past, and even though the animes both have a different take and preception of it, they're both really similar in their own ways. I find that they're both really ignorant and both are the super-cute-really-good-girls.
Both anime have female protaginists, accompanied by several guys. All the guys have different personality traits, but you learn to love them all because of who they are and how they contribute to the story and make it unique. However, even if one is more comedy based (Ouran) while the other is more slice-of-life (FB), I think the audience can see that they're both really similar and lovable in the same manner =)
Both of these animes are reverse harem comedies but are different enough to still add interest. Ouran is very funny but has indepth carachters like fruits basket. Both are a must if you like shojo, comidies or bishies ^_^
Not only that both Anime are extremly funny, no the Characters are so similiar that Momiji and Honey share one seiyuu. Torhu and Haruhi are both confident main Charakters especially girls will like.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran are light hearted romantic high school comedies which are while clearly aimed at teenage girls are funny enough for everyone to enjoy. I thought the art in each was pretty similar in style and is suits the tone of the series really well. There are quite a few similarities between the main characters (Haruhi & Tohru) and as both series focus very heavily on the main character if you loved one of the series your likely to at least enjoy the other.
Both Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are about a girl who changes the males around her as they start to feel a little more than friendship towards her. They both have intersting themes that play a big part of them (Ouran has cross-dressing and Fruits Basket has people who change into animals).
Both Ouran High and fruits Basket have a fairly light feel to them with a touch of romance,and both are hilariously funny. If you liked one you should defiantly watch the other.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are two anime definietly worth watching. Aside from being similar in terms of being a reverse harem, both of these anime will surely keep you on your seat with their light-hearted comedy and romance.
If you like your female lead surrounded by an collection of unique male personalities getting up to situations, in efforts to hide an massive secret, then both Ouran and Fruits Basket fill the agenda. They also have quite similar artistic style and laidback storytelling angles and while your enjoying the constant chattering between the characters and sometimes cringing events, you'll no doubt appreciate the complexity of the individuals lives. Watching either will mean that your quite capable of enjoying the other, so go watch!
Both of these animes are funny, but they also have a sensitive side. These two series have a love story, and will touch your heart. If you enjoy one, you may like the other.
I think if you liked fruits basket , I'm sure you'd like Ouran because both animes are comedy/ romance and they have the same kind of humor. The two animes have for principal character a girl. However, Fruits basket has a little more drama fill in it.
Both are reverse harem series about girls who find themselves in an odd situation surrounded by men due to unfortunate events.
Haruhi accidentally breaks an expensive vase that the Host Club was planning to sell. To pay off her debt they require her to join the club since she can't afford to give them the money the vase was worth.
The series follows her and the rest of the club through humorous and random events often resulting in endings about friendship.
Both series feature girls who run into situations that they have to keep secret. The styles of comedy are also very similar making you laugh at every other moment. If you liked the boys of Fruits Basket, you're sure to like the boys of Ouran.
The lives of the heroines in both anime are suddenly flipped upside down with their sudden meetings with unique men. Each then becomes responsible for hiding a secret. Relationships develop between these girls and the comedic characters around them that make their ordinary school lives far from normal. These two animes would appeal to anyone who enjoys comedy and light romance.
Both are a sweet little romantic comedy, with characters that are easy to connect with.
And they\\'re also both full of hot guys.
The series are both focused on high school aged kids, and while Fruits Basket focuses on an upbeat young girl who faces hardships, Ouran focuses on a more thoughtful girl who also faces hardships in her life. The main character of Ouran, Tamaki, greatly reminds me of Ayame from Fruits Basket, so you get to see a lot of random drama created from him, which adds to the hilarity of the show. The two shows are both great and I'm sure if you like one of them, you'll like the other.
The reverse harem setup is similar, the strong female lead is similar, the beautiful boys with very different personalities is similar.
Beyond that, however, both animes make you feel the same kind of happy. There's just something uplifting about a character who works hard their entire life to achieve a few simple goals, and being such a nice and sensible person that they attract a group of people who are willing to work together despite any personal conflicts to make that person happy.
Oh, and if you like Momiji, you'll definitely like Honey and vice versa.
Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club have a lot in common. They contain very similar humor for one. They also have very similar characters, both design and personality. The episode building and storylines also have lots in common. I deffinitely recomment both ways!
If you enjoyed Fruits Basket or Ouran High School Host Club, then you should definitely check out the other. Both feature a central likeable female character in a situation in which she is surrounded by men who appear to be in a different world to her. Both are also highly comedic, so if you liked one, try the other.
Both have a similar art style and characters, especially the main character of Honda/Haruhi, both of which are orphans who find themselves in a reverse harem and they become very close. If you like one, it's definately worth trying the other.
Well, I think that if you like "Ouran" you'll also like "Fruits Basket" and vice versa.
Main characters in both anime are girls among guys, I think it's not unusual. And they haven't got very similar plots, but when you watch it.. you feel the same, you just love all the characters. Both Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are deserve watching and enjoying every episode!
One girl lots of cute, interesting and sometimes down right wierd guys. sounds like love to me...some girls have all the luck. Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club, though both have their own amazing stories, the are very much alike and if you love one your sure to love the other.
The plots are completely different. But they are both romantic comedies with really similar humor. The characters are kinna like each other is SOME cases, For example Momiji and Mitsukuni (honey-kun) are exactly the same. The difference i think is that in Fruits basket there is more drama.
Both Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket have lovable characters and growing relationships but they both leave you with a smile on your face and a warm feeling after each episode.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club have reverse-harems and are equally funny.
If you liked Ouran or Fruits Basket youd like this because they both have the same sort of atmosphere to the anime, ouran is a bit more light hearted then fruits basket, but fruits basket has deeper emotion in it. although there is this change the animes both have similar aspects like character design, humor and situation.also the male characters (main) in fruits basket have similar personalities to some or ourans characters.
Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket are two anime definitely worth watching. Both are high school animes. They are also both comedies that are base around the same general humor. The characters are all enjoyable. Both are about a girl who each lost their mother, but are still able to smile. They both meet weird boys, with many different secrets to tell. Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket) is always talking to her mother in spirit, and Haruhi Fujioka (Ouran High School Host Club) is also always talking to her mother. The both girls are really sweet, kind, and nice their is something special about them that changes other characters hearts and how they act and they both dont even realize it. I think you you really enjoyed watching Ouran High School Host Club.
Both of these animes feature a somewhat naive female character that changes the lives of the men around her by her own spirit and zest for life. These are very similiar anime, with similar themes and even similiar love triangles.
Both Ouran high school host club and fruits basket have a lot of comedy in them. They both also have a main female character surrounded by many males, which is known as reverse harem. The two male lead characters have a tragic past, and and they both slowly realize their feelings.
Both animes are very similar yet different in their own ways. In the beginning the felmale main characters were suddenly thrust into a world that they're not familar with. Bot anime also worked hard to keep their secrets from being reveal. Momiji and Hunny are very simlir like Yuki and Tamaki they're both 'princes' even though Tamaki's more cheerful and outgoing.
Both deal with a sweet girl surrounded by idiots with problems. They are both hilarious at times, and at others time are very serious and emotional. If you like one, you'll like the other.
Fruits Basket and Ouran have a lovely feel to them. This has probably been said dozens of times, but it's the truth. Both show's revolve around two girls, and a variety of attractive men. These girls and guys both become like family because of an unfortunate turn of events! I'll be pretty surprised if you like one anime and not the other.
Chances are pretty good if you like one of these shows you will like both as both reverse harum/comedies refuse to take themselves completely seriously. However, the characters are likeable and I found myself not even completely hating the bad ones. Both have a plot centered around a strong, but easy going female character who all the guys seem strongly attracted to.
Both of these animes have very similar feelings. They're both very comic and upbeat and the art style is similar. They're also both very popular animes!
The mangaka for Ouran High School Host Club looked at Fruits Basket for inspiration, so to say that they're alike is a bit of a understatement. Their reverse-harem qualities almost match, with the lead females being forced to be around the lead males, but there's something not quite right about the lead males. In Ouran, the males are part of the school's host club and have a tendancy to sparkle while in Fruits Basket, the lead males turn into animals of the zodiac.Some of the characters are alike as well. Honey from Ouran High School Host Club is an exact replica of Momiji from Fruits Basket. The rest of the characters have some similarities, like Kyouya from Ouran and Yuki from Fruits Basket, but they aren't exactly alike.As far as story goes, they both have a good mix of drama and comedy and they both kind of have a similar pace. Ouran has a bit more crack than Fruits Basket, but there's still enough in common to say that if you liked one, you should like the other.
These series each focus around a girl involved in a reverse harem of extraordinary men. With a touch of romantic tension throughout and a lot of comedy, these series each keep a mostly happy tone throughout. However, at a few times, each series has a more serious tone filled with drama that is well done.
Take one oblivious girl character, add a punch of bishies who adore her, and mix in some sort of underlying drama. That's the formula for both Ouran and Fruits Basket. The male character designs are similar, and both anime give a glimpse of high school life. If you liked one, you'll definitely like the other.
Both revolve around a girl getting involved with a group of boys whose world is different from the usual common life, and step by step the girl starts knowing them more, discovering their unique past and bonding with them... Both serieses are filled with comedy in addition to some romance <3
I would also recommend you read the manga for each series as well, great stories well written! <3
Both have crazy character personalities and fun themes. Acceptance is definitely reaccuring throughout both, as OHSHC has some situations that only mature young adults of this day and age would be able to handle appropriately, and Fruits Basket's characters want to be accepted by normal people in all kinds of ways.
If you liked Ouran or Fruits Basket, you would like the other because both are about a girl thrown into a group of guys, also both explore the relationships of not only the male characters with each other but the relationship between the girl and guys.
Tohru and Haruhi are both very naive and fun, lost their mothers, and are both surrounded by BISHOUNEN. Both girls are dragged into a new life. They experience new things with the others. In the end, it'll definitely leave you wanting more. I think if you like one another you'll love the other!!!
Both series have a strong, yet self depreciating female protagonist, with a certain naivetee when it comes to matters of romance. These characters are both surrounded by easy to love males, who are eventually changed for the better by the protagonist.
both animes feature a quite, shy, cute girl in the beginning who is basically adapted into a family of insanely popular and hot guys. she grows as a character through a series of funny mishaps and even develops true love along the way. the tone of the characters are alittle off, one is more has a more sadder, sombre undertone, while the other is just play goofy. but both are insanely fun animes and entertaining. enjoy
They both are the smae fundamentally. Handsome boys and a girl that is surrounded by them. They both include the innocent girl who is not aware of the situation. Also the crazy anticts are both there. Althiough Fruits Basket is more cute, Ouran High School Host Club is very similar and I recomend both 100%! Ouran tends to be more funny than Fruits, but they are both centered around a girl catering for boys and highschool life.
Both series are reverse harem, with plenty of comedic moments and the main female protaganists are similar in some aspects.
They are both reverse harems focusing on a girl who all the boys are fighting over while she has no clue. Both the main charaters are hard working but Haruhi is much more determined than Tohru. If you like one its almost definite that you will like the other.
they really have alot in common a not so cute girl but nice persoality so guys easily fall in love with her.. really if you like one your sure to love the other
They both have similar design and both are reverse harem. Fruits Basket was the first manga I've ever read and it was great. They both are insanely funny! Also their mothers both have died (Haruhi and Tohru)
They both are well made hilarious comedies that include some weird situations. both have a weird twist to them that makes them really funny.
Both of these animes are really similar with a different plot. Both share the unbreakable friendships, comedy, distant romance, and both leave you with an urge to watch more. Trust me, these two animes are the same type of format... both of these are my favorites!
Both center on female protagonists who deal with the antics of the many, many males in their lives. Both are romantic comedies that center on something other than romance (neither are really searching for true love), and while the personalities of the heroines are quite different, both are extremely likeable in their own way.
they're both really funny and sweet with romance, comedy and a little action who can go wrong?
They have similar elements, such as a cast of wacky guys to back a female lead with strong character traits, and intriguing storylines. The manga-to-anime transition in both cases could've been stronger, but transitions aside, the final product was both interesting and amusing.
Both reverse harem anime contain enough zany comedy, awkward moments and romance to keep any shoujo fangirl involved! And if that's not enough, the eye candy simply adds to the anime.
Both are shoujo romantic comedies with plots centering around a reverse harem. They have a similar feel with their easygoing, slice-of-life style and include a strong-willed, level-headed female, pulled from a life of "poverty" thrust into a luxurious world. If you liked Shigure in Fruits Basket, Tameki Suoh in Ouran High School Host Club is very similar, and vice versa. And if you like tsundere characters, Kyo Sohma in Fruits Basket is your man! If you like one, you're certain to like the other!
Both have plenty of humor with 2 guys loving the same girl, and both end with romance. If you loved one than you'll love the other.
Humor. A loveable girl character, very funny supporting males. Reverse harem, implied romantic possibilities but it isn't the emphasis. Toru Honda (FB) and Haruhi Fujioka (OHSHC) differ in personality quite a lot. Toru is exceptionally kind hearted and accepting of the unusualness of Soma family. She has some pretty ditzy moments, often spacing out to deal with her own inner rambling monologues. Haruhi, while also kind and accepting, tends to be much more practical, with more dry wit and a suspicious nature. I absolutely recommend watching one if you like the other. The only downside is that they have only one season each. If there were more, it would be *PERFECT*.
There are a whole bunch of similarities. The grave situations are more often than not broken by the antics of ONE character.
This to anime are very good and funny, very similar in a holistic perspective. If you like one of them you will like the other to.
I absolutely loved Ouran High School Host Club. It's funny, it's smart, it's romantic, it never gets dark, it points out truths about the world and is in general the best to keep yor hopes and spirits up!! I like fruits basket for almost the same reasons but i recomend to read the manga. Ouran High School Host club is able to stand alone but fruits basket ends a bit... you will want to read the manga for more explanation...
Both are funny with similar characters and tags, but beyond how funny they are, there is still a serious nature towards the end.
Both Anime have strong female leads and have lots of comedy. They both have a romantic feel at times but never got very far into that.
ouran high host club and Fruits basket have poor girls that go to school. they both fall into weird circumstances and end up having to be around extremly hot boys all the time.....one of the best animes i have watched to date
They both have the same feel-good theme to it and the main character of Fruits Baset, Tohru reminds me of Haruhi in a way.
Its really good and funny,I LOVE KYOYYA!!! I totally recommend it! its got a ready cool storyline, so gooo for it GOOOOOOOOOOO KYOYA I WOULD TOTALLY ASK FOR HIM HE SO COOL!
They both have the unusual female lead, and the comedy is perfect. While Fruits Basket is Supernatural, and Ouran is a slice of life, both have their funny moments.
Both are comedic slice-of-life series with romantic elements and a female protagonist. They share a light-hearted tone, with some darker moments. Futhermore, the characters are similar.
If you like one you should give the other a chance.
The two shows have a lot in common, from a girl living/working with a bunch of guys, the comedy, and of course, the characters. Both are hilarious, and if you loved one, you would most definitely love the other as well.
They have such a similar feeling. Both are reverse-harems where a motherless girl is forced to interact with the other characters out of necessity. Later the two female roles come to love being where they are and in fact struggle to keep it that way. Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club have many similarities especially in the sometimes light and then suddenly heavy tone.
firts of all they are both reverse harem that doesnt focus on the girl falling in love with one or many guys. they both have some random parts and comedy. in additon to all that both main characters lost their mother
Both animes have a great story which always keep you intereted it has its balance of humour and romance. Although they have very different stories and Fruits basket may not have many characters that's in the manga's but what it does have is very interesting and cute! And if you like Fruits basket you'd also like Ouran high school host club, I do!
Both are silly, quirky, have a cast of crazy characters, and will make you laugh and cry. Both invovle a "normal" girl in a crazy world. Both have a plenty of gorgeous guys to drool over, whatever your personal "type" is.
Both are reverse harems if you like that sort of stuff. They both are set in high school. All of the characters have sad backgrounds. Tohru is an orphan and Haruhi lost her mother at a young age.
The female characters are well thought out and unique. The male characters are interesting and different in many ways. If you like animes that are not about saving the world and have strong, independent female roles, these are good animes to watch.
First of all they both have a female as a main character who kind of just comes in and everyone falls in love with her.
I love both of these animes to be honest and to me they closely resemble one another. Though the basic plot is different the way it's designed and such (If that even makes any sense). If you liked Fruits Basket you will almost for sure like OHSHC
Girl main character is introduced to a colorful cast of characters in a different world of sorts. Both shojo's and contain great comedy. Ouran is more comedy driven while Fruits Basket is more drama driven.
The humor is relitively the same and both have sorta the same feel to them. They're both slow on the build up to the actual romance and they're both better that way.
Both of these shows have the same centric theme of accepting a person for who they are inside, have a quirky female mc surrounded by adoring and fumbling males (who, might I add, appreciate her for more than looks alone) and have serious tensions amidst some silly humor. Although the endings for both were slightly disappointing, these are both feel-good shows.
I love these shows because they are fun entertaining and they both keep you on the ege of your seate :-) :-D
They both are great with fantasy and reality mixed. The characters carry comedy romance truth sadness it revolves each character very well.
On the surface, these two don't seem too similar. But when you watch them yourself you realise how similar they really are. Two of the most popular anime in the reverse harem genre, ridiculous humor and similar characters make these two more alike than they seem.
They are both reverse harem rom-coms (romantic comedies). The character types are also quite similar (particularly the Hani & Mori / Momiji & Haru combination), and both have minor fanservice. Fruits Basket made me cry and so did the Ouran manga. The animation style is similar in both (this is something that affects my choice, so I thought I may as well include it), so if you are a fan of the design in one you will like the other. Basically they both include incredibly handsome highschool boys.
Both Fruits Basket and Ouran have a strong but gentle female lead with a more than entertaining side cast. Obviously both are set in highschool, but the main similarity is the main character having dealt with the loss of a parent and hence being quite serious whereas the characters around them lighten up their lives. Also, both are hilarious :)
Both are reverse-harem type, with lots of humour. The art is quite similar as well. For the most part, both are very light-hearted and fun anime.
Both shows feature big lively casts. They are upbeat and warm, but each have their sad moments.
They are reverse harem type anime that will make you laugh, cry, genually feel for the characters.
They are both reverse harams with strong willed female leads. They both exist in universes where the female character is singled out. Overall, they are both very similar and if you like one, you are sure to like the other.
Both quite similar in the slice-of-life factor with a unique twist in each, both with humour also.
They both are amazingly funny, in my opinion. Although Fruits Basket can be a tear jerker at sometimes. Both are Reverse Herum, which I love!
Both are very entertaining reverse harlems, as well as funny in good humor and heart jerking in some parts. Even though the female leads in both shows have completely different personalities, they both explore the world of the club/family they become a part of, and learn more about them as they bond with each other.
Comedy and romanic based shoujo manga, with female leads. Both centre about the main female character and ultimately how she comes to a true realisation of her feelings
Although, regarding the plots of the two animes, they are very different. When you ignore that factor, they are both share many similarities.
At first, I was sceptical reading the reviews saying how similar these two shows are, but after a couple episodes I could see the resemblance between them.
Both of these animes have pretty similar concepts. They are both about a teenage girl who gets involved with a group of hot guys through a complete accident. Both are mostly lighthearted and character-focused. The stories show the change that the girl, Tohru in Fruits Basket and Haruhi in Ouran High School Host Club, makes within the group and how the guys are much better off with her. Both are really funny but have some emotional moments too.
They're both adorable and a little bit silly (in a great way). But more than that, I believe they both have beautiful endings, and in some ways the story parallels (example: Haruhi and Tohru both lost their mom)
Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club naturally both have that school setting going for them. However, both also have in common their fair share of mystery and drama underneath a fun, almost peppy, aura.
They're both amazing and silly, and just over all awesome. (Of course the beginning is rather slow in both Anime, but it gets better the further along you watch)
They're both adorable romantic comedies with a female lead, multiple main male characters, and based around highschoolers. They're both just too cute! And they're super funny too! They're dramatic, and emotional, but not super emotional, and they aren't insanely dramatic. They've got just enough drama to make you laugh, and just enough romance to keep you hooked and wanting more!
Both are cute reverse harems, that start out lighthearted and fun but transitions deeper into the charatcer's lives
They have the same style for the art and they are also both reverse harem. They also both have the school genre.
Fruits Basket and Ouran High School Host Club are a classic shoujo anime. Not just shoujo, but both are reverse harems, classical reverse harems. Fruits Basket has supernatural elements, but both are a slice of life. The main heriones impact the attitude of the male characters and their decisions.
Both are reverse harems with a similar art style and sense of humour. Ouran High School Host Club is the better anime though and the manga version of Fruits Basket is better than the anime version.
I don't really know what to say about these shows except they're both great.
Ouran High Shool Host Club and Fruits Basket were the first two anime shows I was recommended to watch. And watch them I did, again and again. They're both alike and at the same time very different. Both are humorous and have their serious moments. I can almost guarantee that you'll fall in love with the characters (not necessarily in the litteral meaning) ^^
They are both the best reverse harem shows I have ever seen. It is not like those crappy ones where the main protagonist is a dumb girl who can't stand for herself. They both have a protagonist that are unique and loveable in those own ways. In ouran, harui is a strong girl who can be clueless at someone's and in fruits basket , toru is a happy girl who has a dark past. Both amazing shows to watch. If you've watched one you'll love the other
Reverse Harem, with amazing characters and surprisingly deep themes. I recommend reading the mangas for both if you haven't because the shows only have one season each and leave the ending open.
Fruits Basket and Ouran are both romantic, reverse harems with cute and lovable characters. They both include characters that are hiding something from the outside world. Both of the shows have manga series' that continue their stories further on than the episodes of the animes. Ouran is more of a slice-of-life focusing on romance, whereas Fruits Basket is a fantasy, more in focus on the storyline.
Reverse Harem. High School. Lots of cute boys and love interests. High school girl as the main character. Both main characters come from unfortunate backgrounds and are loved by all.
Both are very romantic with lots of comedic moments leading up to an ending with cheering and crying. They have similar styles in animation. very cute can be used for beginners to enter the world of anime.
They are both reverse harems. Also, some of the characters like: Honey-Senpai and Momiji-kun have very similar personalities and they are even voiced by the same voice actress.
They both have a female lead that has a difficult life and end up working for the male groups and she is likeable.
Adorable and light-hearted, both are a fun, happy go lucky anime that will certainly make you fall for every character.
Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!
In both series, the main characters are high school female students who lose their home and family; that leads them to end up living in a pretty unusual situation.
The artwork also has some resemblance.
Same director on both, and both have the same style of comedy mixed with heartwarming moments. Fruits Basket is more heartwarming so far (although as I'm writing this only 5 episodes of Kamisama have aired), but any fan of one should enjoy the other.
Both are similar in style and even though tohru is alot more naive both girls have lost their homes and live with spirits that obviously have to end up falling in love with the main character who are extremely good people! both are Amazing! Please watch <3
The female protagonists in both show become homeless and they are sheltered by super-natural beings. The position of the two in their own homes respectively might be different, but the relations occuring with the people arround them follow a same pattern.
These basically have the same story. A normal girl, through happenstance meets some handsome boys who have strange powers and emotional turmoil and through her own kind heart, manages to win them over and help them absolve their hurts. However in Kamisama Hajimemashita, the girl has powers of her own, and the love story is more explicit than implied as it is in Fruits Basket.
Fruits Basket and Kamisama Kiss show great similarites. Both Tohru and Nanami are homeless, but are taken into another home. Both anime feature heartwarming and comedic experiences. The artwork resembles each other a bit, but they both have the same director. If you loved one, you're bound to love the other.
Furuba and Kamisama are two anime that begin with a young girl who is on her own and lacks a place to live. She is taken in by unusual people who are not completely human--and this living situation results in hints of romance and character growth on all sides.
You would like Fruits Basket and Kamisama Hajimemashita(Kamisama Kiss) because they both have shrines,both heroines are facing a family difficulty,they involve form changing,and they have similar artwork.
Fruits basket has more complex characters and has a deeper plot, but the female leads share a similar fate in that they both lose their homes through unfortunate circumstances. The style of animation is very similar especially when it comes to the way the male characters are drawn. Kamisama Hajimemashita is a good anime to watch if you are like me and miss Fruits basket!
They have a very simmilar feel. I love both shows and recomend you watch both of them. I am sure that in no time you too will be in love with this anime.
Both are about mostly-carefree homeless girls. They are taken into a new home where strange things suddenly occur. Characters are also similar in that many have animal counterparts. Both are comedies.
They both have a lead female who is seemingly unaware of her positive effect on the males around her. Where as Tohru is a "normal" girl and nanami is turned into a land God, they both still go to high school and have girl friends. For Fruits basket you're kind of routing for one of two guys, in Kamisama Kiss, for Nanami there is only one interest, even though over male characters are lovely too/
they both have a female protagonist with guys surrounding her, reverse harem. Also the female protagonists both have slight love conncection, although, i must say kamisama is heavier on the love than fruits basket. both of which have supernatural elements
They both involve one girl and multiple guys. also they both have a fantasy/mythological aspect to it. They both have romance involved too. They are also a bit humorous though kamisama has less guys than fruits basket. Also, Fruits Basket is a little more innocent
Both anime are shoujo with a supernatural twist. The protagonists are very soft and kind girls with no place to go and they both end up being thrust into worlds with magic and supernatural occurances. While both anime focus on the supernatural side of the story, they add in some comedic elements and romance as well.
Right away, when I saw this anime it reminded me of fruits basket, the artwork is pretty similar, it deals wth a female highschool student who loses their home and family, and they end up living with mystical boys who end up falling for her.
Both are about a young high-school girl who was orphaned and taken in by magical/spiritual beings. Bot have romance as well. However, Nanami is more headstrong and outspoken than Tohru, they can be very much alike.
both are about a girl in need luckily found by supernatural related boys with powers and different levels of attachment to her.
They both have sweet main character girls who dont back down from challenges presented to them and have a fantasy element that is interesting enough to keep your attention. Also the characters are adorable!
Both Kamisama Hajimemashita and Fruits Basket are romantic youkai anime with a female main character stumbling across the youkai world, and end up living in it.
Both anime have a homeless girl. She is struggling in life, and gets taken in by a man. Both have similar supernatural powers. Really good anime
Both have strong female leads. It may not seem like it at times, but that's because, like any real human, they have faults. They both constantly get into trouble, but their strength of spirit gets them out and teaches valuable lessons to the male characters, even though the male characters save them in more physical ways. And the male characters are all really cute :3
They are both awesome! Nah, that's not the only reason.... Pretty boys with animal attributes (like!), strong and funny heroines, nice supportive characters,fast paced story line, plenty of romance in the air, a bit of dark atmosphere here and there to spice things up! Need anything more?!
Both shows, Kamisama Hajimemashita and Fruits Basket, are full of comedy and supernatural elements. They also both center around a high school girl that is having problems with her home and comes to live with a bunch of men! If you liked Kamisama Hajimemashita or Fruits Basket you are sure to enjoy the other. They both made me feel happy and root for one of the characters. They are good quality and have a fruitful story, I'm sure if you enjoy one, the other would be just as good.
Both animes are reverse harem, romance, and shoujo. Heroines live in a house with a long background with a secret. The girls learn a secret. The heroines life changes how the house was originally. Also, tsunderes(Kyo and Tomoe).
Both reverse harem anime, are are very funny. Main characters are both taken in by others because they lost their home. Both have a supernatural theme. One of the only differnces is that the main character does not have any special powers or abilities.
Both of these are super cute, with original ideas. They both are half fantasy/half slice of life school related.
What I love in the Fruit Basket anime is the characters , where I'm most favored is Kyou Cap correct me if I'm wrong , being isolated and discrimanated is the most hurtful part (in my opinion) , there was a time when I cried on that episode where he was locked up because of what he was. This anime is one of my top list that I could recommend that you will not regret to watch :3
As for the Kamisama Hajimemashita it is a good historical shoujo romance , i love the plot and also the character design is well created.
Both are very touching stories about girls that have to face hard family situations but they find a place and people that make them fell like home, in those animes you can find comedy and hearth moving moments
Both are cute romantic anime with characters with supernatural forms. They are also both great beginning anime for newcomers.
These are your stereotypical shoujo series. Average heroine gets really hot guy. This is actually the case in Kamisama. However, in Fruits Basket, the outcome is not so clear. Either way, both series can be enjoyed by men or women.
they are very alike, they've got the same humor and the characters are kinda similar in the way they are
Both of these anime are about girls that leave home and find themselves in a supernatural situations. Both have hints of romance and drama. If you like the mythology of one, check the other. Hope you like it!
These two animes both have the perfect amount of romance, comedy, and of course animals with human traits. I would absolutely recommend you watch these two, believe me you will not regret it!
Semi-reverse harems. Both have a high school girl who is just super sweet to everyone and everyone loves her or loves to hate her. Both high school girls are homeless and have bad home lives and non-existent families. Both are taken in by others and create a new family. Both have main characters that try their hardest to prove their worth and wind up just making more and more people like them as well as making enemies. Both have magical elements; with fruits basket having people turn into animals and kamisama having animal-like people who can turn into animals but prefer their human/demon forms. Both have a bunch of guys that love them and that one guy the character is just deeply in love with. Both feature a lot of drama and teenage romance and are set in high school. Both main characters have the two best girl friends who are overbearing and protective of them.
After one episode of Kamisama Hajimemashita, I immediately thought of Fruit Baskets. The female leads are in similar circumstance and the men seem to help alleviate the struggle. The stories are cute and all the characters are likeable. If you like one, you are sure to like the other.
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
Fruits Basket and Azumanga Daioh are sweet and cute series, even though their atmosphere and plot do differ quite much. (As Azumanda Daioh doesn't even have a plot, really.) Still, they both are the kind of soft anime that leave you feeling good and warm afterwards.
Fruits Basket and Azumanga Daioh both share a equally as hilarious type of randomness which will make you laugh. Fruits Basket definitely is a bit more sentimental and serious at times, but both easily are high up on my "funniest anime" list, and I think you'd enjoy it.
Although Azumanga Daioh and Fruits Basket both have totally different stories, and the characters aren't very similar, overall they both have the same sense of character development that will create an attachment to the characters, that will leave you either in tears by the end or begging for more.
Both Azumanga Daioh and Fruits Basket are about school and have fantastic comedy elements. There's the right dose of cuteness and humour, along with some drama and a decent story line that doesn't have massive plot holes. There are a few hyper characters but the series are generally good for laughs and are an excellent pick-me-up if you are feeling slightly blue.
Both series involve plots based around school andhave amazingly funny laugh out loud comedy moments. If you enjoy very strong characters both series' are brilliant.
Both of these anime's deliver a heartwarming feeling as you get to know all of the characters. The main characters Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket) and Chiyo Mihama (Azumanga) are sweet girls who feel a bit out of place. They both interact with the people around them to ty to find their place in the world.
Azumanga Daioh and Fruits Basket both have a cute side to themselves. You see, eventhough Azumnga Daioh doesn't have drama like Fruits Basket, but you will certainly enjoy the comedy.
Not only the comedy is in common, but the fun and the randomness is found in both these anime.
However, if you thirst for anime characters similar to the characters in Fruits basket, then Azumanga Daioh doesn't help much. But character construction and develpmont is found in both these anime.
So by the end, you will be grateful you watched Azumanga Daioh!
You'd like Azumanga Daioh because it has that same element of random hilarious moments that just have to make you laugh. Even though Azumanga is more slice of life, they both give you elements of teenagers in school.
These series are each primarily focus around random humor that make them fit well together. Fruits Basket has more drama and romance, though.
Both are very comedic, and are extremely light-hearted. Azumanga Daioh has no element of romance and only has a few serious moments, while Furuba is about half-seriousness, half-hilarity. However, the airheaded-ness of Osaka is just like Tohru's, and they're very similar characters. Furuba has a few episodes that are just them hanging around high school, and parts of those have a very similar feel to Azumanga Daioh.
If you want an anime where the main character is a bit of a ditz, and she's surrounded by a cast of unique and hilarious individuals, these two animes are perfect for you. While Fruits Basket has a bit more drama than Azumanga, they are very funny animes that follow the lives of some rather special high school students.
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...
Easy going romance story. Not quite the same as Fruits Basket, but one you won't want to miss if you loved it.
Both are very cute and have some fantastic moments. Chobits has very humane androids and Fruits Basket has a cursed family line who will transform into animals when being hugged by the opposite sex. Love, friendship and emotions are both very strong and important elements for both Chobits and Fruits Basket and I ensure you, if you liked one, you will with a high probability also like the other.
Fruits Basket and Chobits have the same kind of funny, memorable characters in them. The plots of both stories take interesting twists and turns as the anime progress. They both incorporate love, humor, and strong emotions throughout their plotlines. If you enjoyed one of them, chances are you'll have a good time watching the other.
Both plots seem to take on interesting variations as the anime progress; they have unforgettable characters and a flair for comedic moments. Fruits Basket is a more ‘cute' type of anime whereas Chobits has a little more of an ecchi quality about it, but they are both very endearing.
They are both love comedys. Both have a perverted sence of humor. Chobits has a great ending, where as Fruits Basket kind of gave room to make more episodes.
Chobits and Fruits Basket are both very cute and funny stories of romance with a twist. In Chobits the female lead is a robot and in Fruits Basket many of the characters are cursed. Both these situations cause the characters to worry if they can ever be truly accepted by the world around them. However even on this slightly dark note the shows manage to stay light and funny.
Alot of comedy, tons of romance, and magical encounters. this about sums up the series. Such cute charectors, adorable animation, and fun plots. Both animes are cool and entertaining to watch!
Both Fruits Basket and Chobits are about young protagonists that stumble upon a very special person. Their significant other is part of an interesting plot-twist, and they are surrounded by interesting characters with interweaving storylines. Both anime involve a mix of romance and humor, and involve "chibi" storylines that are adorable.
They're by no means the same but Fruits Basket and Chobits have a few common themes running through them. They both have romance running through them, and they're both fairly good animes if you like mushy, innocent romance.
Both of them have a similar sense of humour - jokes about boys feeling awkward around members of the opposite sex seem to be a major source of comedy in both of these series, albeit for different reasons.
Nakahara Sunako, a high school girl whose interests include horror movies, coffins and gore, is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys. As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her aunt: in exchange for free rent, they will try to mold Sunako into a magnificent lady. As someone who has cast aside all her femininity and sworn to live in darkness, Sunako is ready to do whatever it takes to nullify these efforts; but is there a way for the creatures of darkness and light to coexist?
If you liked Fruits Basket, you'd also like YNSH because they are both reverse harem anime.
Just as Fruits Basket is filled with developed characters that are incredibly likeable, so is Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. The story is funny yet touching at the same time, and it makes you feel for the heroine as much as it makes you feel for Tohru in Fruits Basket. This series is all around great; it will make you laugh and make you cry without going over the top.
Both Fruits basket and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge deal with a girl having to live with one of the main characters(the girl) having to move in with guys, and they all have alot of secrets, its alot like Fruits Basket.
Both Fruits Basket and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge deal with teens in some kind of delicate situation or extraordinary position, who deal with it in a hilarious way. At the same time, they have angst-filled stories who get revealed and make the characters more than funny persons doing funny stuff.
If you liked Yamato/Fruits Basket you will like this because both animes have funny yet deep characters that have been developed really well.both animes have a light and funny tone to it, but have an interesting story and background in it.
fruits basket and the wallflower are plotwise not really similar but they're both funny and again it's a reversed harem..
kyouhei from the wallflower is similar to kyo from fruits basket!! and they also have similar names!! ;) they both want their own ways and are hot headed and they cannot really show any emotions but when it comes to someone hurting the girl they like they lose it!
watch both it's really worth your time!
Bishounen with interesting pasts? Check. Mentions of the occult? Check. Plot that gets lost in some of the antics? Check.
While the female leads are definitely different, they both end up doing the housework for their respective bishounens. While school antics play some part of these animes, they tend to be more focused on developing the characters.
Don't get fooled by the ad images for YNSH, it's actually a super silly anime, probably more so than Fruits Basket. Both are harem stories and deal with facing everyday difficulties. FB can be a bit more bittersweet at times but YNSH speaks to everyone who'se ever been overlooked I think.
Sunako is almost the complete opposite of Tohru, but don't let that fool you! Both stories are incredibly funny, while still super sweet and caring. Just give it a try - you won't regret it!
