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?

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien

Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka. But amidst the beautiful budding relationship, tragedy strikes when an accident occurs, turning Narumi’s life upside-down. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is simiilar to Itazura na Kiss due the dramatic romance that happens between the characters. In both stories you have a male character who is unsure of his feelings but through almost losing everything he soon figures out what is most important to him. Unlike Itazura na Kiss, there is no comedy in Kimi ga Nocomu Eien, and there is no feel good family scenes. However in both shoujo anime series you get a good romance between the characters.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu

Yuuto Ayase is not interested in girls - if his two housemates are anything to go by, girls are loud, brazen slobs that are best left alone. However, when Yuuto accidentally discovers an important secret of his school’s most popular female, Haruka Nogizaka, the two become bound in a budding friendship. All too soon, Yuuto discovers that, despite her flawless appearance, Haruka is clumsy, naive, and a closet otaku... and he just might be falling for her.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza

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.

Peach Girl

Peach Girl

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.

Rizelmine

Rizelmine
  • TV (24 eps x 14 min)
  • 2002

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!

This may seem like a weird recommendation but both animes deal with two main characters who live together where the girl is head over heals for a guy who gives her the cold shoulder.
