Synopsis:

Kajika is the fourteen-year-old heiress of the Burnsworth Corporation who just wants to live a normal life, but her father has other plans. He informs Kajika that her fate is a heavy one to carry and he will only tell her the full details when the man she intends to marry is by her side. As such he has set up a ‘marriage game' for her; Kajika will meet three men that he has specifically picked out and she is to select one of the three to become her husband. There's just one catch; Kajika must also make her chosen man fall for her, since the ‘suitors' are unaware of the game in which they are participating. For a girl who has never loved anyone except for her pet leopard, this game will prove to be a trial. With her over-protective childhood friend and personal shadow, Li Ren, keeping a close watch, will Kajika be able to choose who will become her lifelong partner and finally learn of her true fate?

Saiunkoku Monogatari

Saiunkoku Monogatari

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 series feature a smart heroine who ends up surrounded by male suitors. Everyone around her is sucked in by her charisma, and she helps everyone she meets with their problems. Both anime blend comedy with drama and romance really well.

chamomille

Both anime are about a cheerfull and energetic girl with strong personality that reaches everyone's heart. Both anime are quite romantic (and full of bishounen) and have political character. If you liked one, be sure to check out the other.

Nymn

A world of politics, drama, a reverse harem of bishounen and of cause, romance. I can't think of anything else that would come as similliar. They're also among the best shoujo anime/manga you'll ever come across. Enjoy. :)

Galadriel

in both animes we see a young, smart, beautiful and strong female character surrounded by bishounen who are attracted by her charismatic personality and also both animes have a deep political aspect.If you seen and liked one of this two be sure to check the other as well.

wolfangel87

In Hanasakeru Seishounen and Saiunkoku Monogtari the female protagonist is extremely smart and is able to keep up with her male counterparts along the way in whatever the situation is.  They also seem to be able to make every situation turn out great no matter how much the odds seem to be against them.  Not to mention both heroines are surrounded by amazingly hot looking guys!

GrnEydDvl

Both of these shows feature a very strong willed female protagonist who is outspoken and outgoing, highly dedicated to and enthusiatic about the task at hand, and who manages to charm everyone around her.  Both women are followed around by a primary friend/bodyguard and a whole host of other strong, attractive men as they deal with every problem that comes their way.  While the setup for each show seems romance based, and there are plenty of romantic moments for the fangirl in you, the primary focus of each show is political, as the main characters try to deal with the problems in their countries, from corruption, to assasination attemps, to would-be usurpers of the throne.  If you are looking for a show that is a bit more intelligent than the standard shojo, but still lets you be a fan girl every now and then, these shows are definitely for you.

beccatemi

The heroine of both stories are very strong, willful and relentless and are surrounded by male characters who they help and are helped by them. All the surrounding charcters are easily liked and they draw you into the story.As well as romance, both of the anime provides insights into politics, battle and struggle surrounding a kingdom/throne as well as bonds between the secondary charcters.

MoonXArtemis

Both reverse harems, with a strong-minded girl. All males are mature and dependable. The female in both anime is kind, intelligent, beautiful, and caring. Both stories are very interesting and keeps you wanting for more. 

Hatenkou Yuugi

Hatenkou Yuugi

One day, Rahzel's father decides that she should go on a journey and see the world, so he does the only reasonable thing – he kicks her out of the house! However, Rahzel is an optimist and decides to find a traveling partner, and within minutes she stumbles upon the beautiful silver haired red-eyed Alzeid. Rahzel tells Alzeid that she will free him from his boring life and take him on a fun and wonderful adventure. Joined by a mysterious yet lecherous muscle head named Baroqueheat, the travelers head out without a destination in mind, seeking enjoyment and fulfillment, and encountering friends and enemies at every turn.

When I first watched Hanasakeru, Kajika reminded me so much of Rahzel. They are both stubborn yet calm, logical, and catious in most situations. When one of the girls meet someone and that person is going through a dilema Rahzel's or Kajika's characters would be like an angel and help them into the light. The other characters in both animes also resembles eachother like Li Ren or Eugene compared to Alzeid.  If you are looking for two similar anime, I highly recommend Hatenkou Yuugi and Hanasakeru.

lilbabybluetoo

These two animes are really well done and have great artwork. Plus the main characters are really similar because they both have unique ways of viewing the world.

Hatenkou Yuugi is more about Razel finding her place in the world along with her companions. Hanasakeru Seishounen is more about Kajika helping others find their place.

But in both they end up loved by the people hey choose to care about and it kindof inspires that "Reverse Harem" feel. (Well Hanasakeru IS a Reverse Harem, but you get what I mean)

I highly recommend both animes. If you enjoyed one you'll enjoy the other.

wolfangel87

I love the similarities between the main characters in Hanasakeru Seishounen and Hatenkou Yuugi!  The female leads of Kajika and Rahzel are both really strong and independent in nature, they are insightful yet caring and always want to do the right thing and help someone out.  These two heroines embark on some challenging adventures with boys all around them following their lead.

La Storia Della Arcana Famiglia

The organization, headed by the powerful Mondo, lives on Regalo Island and protects its citizens from crime and corruption with the help of certain members who wield supernatural powers known as Arcana. But Mondo is growing older, and has decided to organize a tournament to determine which Arcana wielder will take his place – and his daughter Felicitá's hand in marriage, much to her dismay. Now, as Felicitá herself and other friends and colleagues wait to enter the competition, they reminisce about old times, perform good deeds for the townsfolk and continue to hone their Arcana skills.

Both of these shows star spunky-yet-gentle female heiresses whose fate/marriage is being decided based on a game.

yaya32498

Both These Shows have a theme of finding the perfect husband for a daughter of a very important father. La storia della Arcana Famiglia is more of a fantasy type with special powers and Hanasakeru Seishounen is more a reality and/or more real life senario. Both are good animes.

Both series center around adventure. People finding out about lost lineage and how things they once new so well maybe different from how they seemed.

Although Chihayafuru isn't a reverse harem anime, the feel of it is quite similar. Ayase and Kajika are both VERY similar. Strong-minded, intelligent, caring and outgoing. Hanasakeru Seishounen is more political and drama, while Chihayafuru is more of a school atmosphere and "sport" drama. Chihayafuru has more comedy but both are just as good, and keep you wanting for more.
