If you liked the Fruits Basket anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
In an era when ordering on the internet has become the norm, online vendors have a new favorite customer: Sakurada Jun! From voodoo dolls to x-ray specs, there's nothing this middle schooler can't get enough of -- until a strange package arrives one day. Inside is a sentient doll named Shinku, who is one of a special hand crafted set of dolls called Rozen Maiden. Luckily for Jun, not only does he get to keep her, but she's decided he'll be... her new servant?! Join Jun as he struggles to keep his sanity in a house full of dolls who all want his servant skills for themselves!
I think i would recommend this anime because it's a shoujo anime with a twist; the lead character is male. It is accurate to say that the number of male characters in 'Fruits Basket' greatly outnumbers the females. True, Tohru Honda is a female but she is surrounded by male relatives of the Souma family.
In 'Rozen Maiden' the lead character Jun is surrounded by beautiful talking dolls and the view from a different perspective is enchanting. This anime will appeal to both sexes but I imagine Jun will be easier to relate to for males than Tohru and the character of Shinku is amazing. A beautiful, funny, dramatic and overall stunning anime.
In an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!
Both of these series revolve around a spirited girl who always does her best to help those around her from the bottom of her heart, without askng for anything in return. Both girls also seem to be the female equivalents of "chick-magnets", since nearly every bishounin of the series has a 'romantic scene' with her somewhere in the story.
Both series are also perfect blends of not only romance, but comedy and drama also, so they have plenty going on to keep you endlessly entertained!
After Okojo-san (a feisty ferret) deftly escapes from the local pet store, Siawase Apartment will never be the same! Armed with long claws and a razor-sharp wit, Okojo-san finds adventure with a mouse sidekick. This show has attitude!
Okojo-san, like Fruits Basket, is filled with witty and sarcastic humor and a cast of animals. In addition, both are fantastic comedies and full of fun. If you liked Fruits Basket, try out Okojo-san.
Kotobuki Ran has a whole family line of relatives working in the police force. Her aunts and uncles are officers, her dad is a police chief, and even her brother is a working policeman. Ran has no interest in being a policewoman; she has problems of her own, and her own style of dealing with them - the GAL way! Friends need boyfriends, shoes need to be bought, and nails need to be done. Despite Ran's wreckless and troublesome behavior, Ran has a strong sense of justice, and she's always willing to help her friends out of trouble. With her two best friends Miyu and Aya, they live life as GALs, building romance and creating memorable fun!
Both Fruits Basket and SuperGals! mix a high school hijinks of comedy with slice-of-life drama that you can only get from a shojo-manga. While SuperGALS! tends to be more centered around Ran and her five other friends, she's the connector like Tohru, the main character in Fruits Basket who supports at least a dozen characters.
