Zombie-Loan

Zombie-Loan

Michiru has an unusual ability: she can see a dark ring around a person's neck that signifies their time to die. However, she suppressed her powers once she "saw" the deaths of her parents – until now. After accidentally seeing rings around the necks of two boys in her school, it seems that Michiru's powers are back for good. The two are zombies who are working for the secret loan office known as Zombie-Loan, and they need Michiru's help to find other zombies – those with dark black rings around their necks. Though Michiru initially refuses, due to a series of events it seems she has no choice but to comply...

Zombie-Loan reminds me of Fruits Basket mainly because Shito is a lot like Yuki and Chika is a lot like Kyo.

Two almost opposite guys who pretty much hate each other have to hang around each other and be 'friends' because of their shared bizarre existence and it's usually gets pretty violent between them.

oh and they both have a doughy and comparatively boring and useless female lead. 

..but Zombie-Loan has zombies and some rather raunchy lesbian scenes so i guess there are some differences.

Both of these anime have a dynamic duo who really want to punch each other in the face. Kyo/Yuki or Shito/Chika. Their fire and ice personalities make up for some rather spectacular cat-fights (sorry, Kyo, no pun intended). On top of that, there are other character similaries between the top anime. So, zombie fighting aside, the anime could be identical. 

Kuragehime

Kuragehime

Tsukimi is an otaku and jellyfish enthusiast whose only means of coping with the world is to reject it: she and her friends live in a house they declare a man-free zone, generally avoid 'stylish people', and spend their days blissfully bonding over geeky rituals. As misfortune would have it, their convenient existence is about to be turned on its head by the arrival of Kuranosuke, a seemingly beautiful young woman who is actually a beautiful young man. While he may be strange even by their standards, Kuranosuke embodies everything Tsukimi secretly dreams of being - a princess as ethereal as a floating jellyfish - and promises the kind of mind-boggling adventures only possible when geek meets chic!

Both Fruits basket and Kuragehime are very upbeat, hilarious, and have a great cast of different characters which many you fall in love with. Both animes have unsure heroines and a great line of supporting characters

fruits basker and kuragehime both share a common aspect of why i love them: the main character is a good person, who ultamately thinks lowly of her self. i can identify with this very well. there's a good mix of comady in both, with their dramatic moments. and, sadly, they both feel like they end way too short. kuragehime leaves you wanting more because they set up more than one problem and only solved the main one that is set up in the begunning.

Thesupernatural transformations reminded me of the zodiac transfromations. The stroy lines are different but the romance theme of loving someone for who they are even if they hate themselves is there.

While the heroine for each show are quite different, the setting and cast of excentric personalities with supernatural afflictions are very reminiscent of each other.  They also share an underlying story of healing from warped childhoods through love and friendship.

Mayo Chiki!

Mayo Chiki!

Due to his upbringing with a wrestler mother and an equally-as-strong sister who beat him up constantly, Kinjirou Sakamachi would rather die than be touched by the opposite sex. So when the boy accidentally discovers that the dreamy school idol (and butler of the wealthy Kanade) Subaru is actually a girl in disguise, Kinjirou finds his life becomes far more complicated. For in exchange for keeping Subaru's gender a secret, Kanade is determined to cure Kinjirou of his gynophobia, with Subaru's help, once and for all...

Though Mayo Chiki is wayyy more ecchi than Furuba, I'd recommend both to fans of shoujo romantic comedies. They both have super cute romances which develop oh-so-slowly, and I think fans of that type of show would enjoy both of these.

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.
