Synopsis:

Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?

Both Itazura na Kiss and Fruits Basket start with a girl who has to move in with a guy because of extreme circumstances. The female lead in each is just a normal girl with a good heart. Both anime have a warm and fuzzy romantic style with lots of comedy.

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...

Now i know what your thinking what is the connection between these two anime. Well is both one of the main love interests is initially cold. Kaname gets easily annoyed with Sousuke but she starts to develop feelings for him and the same is true for Itazura na kiss. In both of these the romance is really slow but your waiting for them to tell each other and so you don't mind the wait.

Itazura Na Kiss and FM have similar female protagonists who use all they have to face their different perils. The art and comedy of these two shoujo series are not overdone or silly and are both sincere with interesting themes about unrequited love.

Green Green

Green Green

Deep in the mountains, isolated from civilization, there is a boys-only school that will finally be receiving its first class of girls in an attempt to transform the school into a co-ed one. Most of the boys have never been in contact with girls of their own age, leading to an explosion of hormonal craziness. From the sickeningly perverted fetishist guys, to a rather odd girl that seems to be chasing the most normal guy in the school for reasons known only to her, there's twisted humor to be had.

Ok.. if you've seen Green Green you must saying 'what the .... uber no way ya tool!' however if you liked the idea of a young woman pursuing a young man and throw in some humour to take the edge off then I think you'll enjoy Green Green as much as you like Itazura na Kiss.

Honey and Clover

So I know some people might not believe it, but I really think that H&C and INK have a lot in common. I enjoyed both these anime for their realistic approaches to life and how they don't rely on overexaggerated situations or coincidences to make a story happen. 

Although the characters and story plot are different, they both revolve around a series of characters that journey through school and life learning what they want to do and be.  Of course, the comedy and romance is evidently there in both series as well =) But what's more, is that the anime chooses to end at the right moment where the audience just knows what's left for the characters.
