Both are fun comedy romances. A must see for those hiding a softer side.

If you enjoy high school drama with a twist then these shows are for you. Both of them have very emotionally driven plots, all kinds of zany characters, and something a little more... odd.

I can't put my finger on the connection here, but I can feel it. Maybe it's the atmosphere, or the "forbidden love" thing... I know that no anime have brought me closer to tears than these two. Well, Haibane Renmei sort of did, but in a different way.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

Both stories focus around hard working and determined female leads, with hints of romance and teen life.

I'm really surprised more people haven't made recommendations for these two. It has many similarities! Let’s first cover the obvious basic things they have in common: they are school-life romantic comedies that have darker undertones. Secondly, they are reverse harems with sexy guys!

As for the characters, both have strong female leads who literally work themselves to sickness. There is also a romance in both, but both the female leads don’t really focus on having a relationship.

Overall, I really do think if you enjoy one, you’d enjoy the other. Yes, Fruits Basket has a supernatural theme to it, but the general tone is the same as Maid-Sama!

If you love a good love story, some nail biteing cliff hangers and constant comedy, wou will love maid-sama. Both of these animes have comedies that will make you laugh until it hurts. Another major similarity between them is their underlying love stories. Even though Fruits Basket's love story is portrayed through small actions, Maid-Sama jumps right into the romance of laughs and kindness. If you like Fruits Basket you will love Maid-Sama!

Great love story, more serious and more emotional.
Varufa

The character in both series go through a fairly similar phase emotionally. They are trying to come to grips with themselves for themselves and their loved ones or at least the people they admire. Kare Kano takes a more serious stance as it progresses but if you liked the emotion portayed in Fruits Basket you'll love Kare Kano

ohtoriakio

The comedy is similar in both, although Kare Kano sticks a little more to reality in the everyday situations. The backstories of the characters are compelling in both, and similarly create depth for the cast.

requiem
Both are harem based with one girl and several guys. Also, the main characters both are very lifelike and open to the male counterparts, so consider either series if you like optimistic, energetic shoujos.
soccerdory

Both series revolve around young ladies who keep a positive attitude no matter the situation. Each girl has her own set of family problems, but with a can do attitude, and a group of boys surrounding them, they survive and even flourish. If you love the energy and romance in one, you will surely love the other. ^^

chamomille

Both main characters Himeno and Honda have unfortunate fate, but they both have very strong personalities - they always try to go on and try to understand people around them. And that's probably why they are chosen to fulfill difficult tasks. It may seem like very sad series according to my previous sentences, but both of them are also very funny. If you liked one, you would surely like the other.

Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart.

While based on different kind of plots, both of these series have a fair amount of shoujo, coupled with seriously funny parts. You could say that both have a mythical feel, as well... Fruits Basket involving people who change to animals, and Princess Tutu being a fairy-tale fable. I definitely get the same feel on certain aspects, watching these.
AnimeObsessed

Princess Tutu and Fruits Basket are similar in several ways. One of these is that they each have two lead male characters that somewhat parallel each other. Yuki (Fruits Basket) and Mytho (Princess Tutu) are both sweet and kind, and Kyo (Fruits Basket) and Fakir (Princess Tutu) are tough and stubborn. These shows are also alike in that there is a well-balanced amount of comedy and drama, and they both have the same fairytale feel to them.

Nievesrockzmysockoff
