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?
As Yuuto continues to keep Haruka’s otaku nature as much of a secret as possible, chaos continues to surround them. With Yuuto’s wild, drunken housemates gatecrashing their trip to a hot springs resort, and Haruka’s sister and maid team concocting various schemes to allow the pair to spend time together, nothing is ever straightforward. While Yuuto does all in his power to make Haruka happy, including working as butler for the tyrannical Touka and pulling an all-nighter to help her finish her first doujinshi, he is unsure as to how the school beauty feels about him. Will the clueless duo finally be able to muster up the courage, and the time alone, to finally confess their feelings for each other?
both animes revolve on a school life aspect and especialy on two students that fall in love with eachother and the difficulties they encounter all for the sake of happiness.Both animes have a very well defined comedy aspect, and a warm romance aspect as well (better developed in Itazura na Kiss) so im sure that if you like one of this two you will like the other one as well.
Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!
Why hasn't this recommendation been made yet? Ridiculous.
Obviously, these two stories are very different. Peach girl is a dramatic love triangle between close friends and one of the main themes is insecurity. Itazura na Kiss focuses more on the tense relationship between what seems to be two strangers forced to live under one roof who have to try extra hard to get along.
The reason these animes compliment each other so well is because of the art style, setting and personality of the female lead. Despite a small lack of intelligence, over exaggerated girliness and stubborn-ness, these characters (Momo and Kotoko) are impossible to dislike.
The cutesy highschool feel really wraps up this recommendation. If you liked one, give the other a shot.
In the present, the Japanese government has been conducting experiments to genetically engineer a human: a girl named Rizel. The experiment was a success -- sort of. While healthy and cheerful, 12-year-old Rizel also ended up possessing the uncanny need for “love” to further her development, as well as tears which were in fact volitile explosives! When sadness can end up destroying a city block, what's a girl to do except... get married?! For Iwari Tomori, the young man chosen as the most appropriate partner for Rizel, life is about to change, for better or for worse!
Kyoko moves to the big city with the prince of her dreams Shotaro; he wants to make it big in the entertainment business, so she works hard at many different jobs to support him as he achieves his dream. However, one day, Kyoko accidentally discovers the horrible truth: the love of her life thinks of her as a 'plain and boring woman!' Outraged, Kyoko swears revenge – she will make it even bigger than Shotaro in the entertainment world. The only question is, how will she fulfill her desire?
Upbeat and optimistic heroine? Check.
Tsundere male lead? Check.
Endless moments of "Just kiss her already!" ? CHECK!
Though these two series end up in very different directions, I think with such a similar set-up it would be difficult to enjoy one and not the other. Check it out!
