then again, these two series deal a lot with the differences between rich people and not so rich people. Also the main characters, the boy in Hayate no gotoku and the girl in HYD, have sometimes to pay huge debts or need money to live on and the rich person always help them out. Also the personalities are very different, the rich guys always get what they want that's why it's hard for them to understand each other. If you add to this the love story and the continous twists and misunderstandings, you get that both animes are very similar, you'll surely like one if you liked the other, though hayate has a lot more of comedy.

Same kind of tsundere characters in the same situation. Love vs money/social status. Technically the manga of Kaichou wa Maid-sama is more similar to Hana Yori Dango, because the anime hardly tells you anything about the main male character and his private life. Regardless, if you enjoyed one then I'm sure you'll like the other.
