snivets snivets says...

The two main male protagonists are both a little overbearing, do as they please, and have totally fallen for a female lead who seems bent on ignoring them in favor of her studies. If you like shoujo with lots of tension and hilarious conflict between a pair of characters who oh-so-obviously like each other, give these two shows a go.

eminAAnime eminAAnime says...

 I really LOVE both animes!!

Both have a guy that is madly inlove  with the protagonist ( girl ) and tells her strait up front and even though she rejects them they keep on lingering around like a faithful dog until they realize that they truly can't be withought them <3 <3

HaiMyNameIsCheese HaiMyNameIsCheese says...

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is a bit more back and forth type of anime and I found it to be much harder to stop watching it, while Kaichou wa Maid-sama! made me laugh more and had a few more light-hearted moments. Both are very good romance animes.

romantic comedyodd but perfect couple 

story amazing

you would enjoy it

both series character have doubt on their emotion

but hero is always in love with heroine from the very begining

a secondary character is after main female character too and she care from him but it's not love

Milved Milved says...

They are both really great series, and the couples are really cute together. The storyline is quite different, but they both have the same feel to them. If you enjoyed one, I would definitely recomend the other.

thomchris48 thomchris48 says...

ther are a lot of simularities. you like on you'll like the other. best part is it feels fresh even after just watching maid sama

lydiax lydiax says...

Both are about super studious and serious girls who fall for super smart and goofy guys and get side tracked. Tonari no K develops a bit faster, but you will like it if you liked Kaichou

Ilsa Ilsa says...

Interesting romance but with plot and without very idiotic behavior of a girl. Male characters likable. Bookworm girls are quite intelligent.

Kare Kano

Kare Kano

Yukino had it all. Brilliant, athletic, popular and pretty, she was the perfect school girl with many friends and admirers. But then one fateful day she met her match: a handsome young man named Arima. Now, not only is he beating her at her own game, she's becoming more and more dismayed to learn that she's developing her first real feelings of romance. Can Yukino maintain her model student appearance, or will love ruin all her plans?

Like Kare Kano in Maid Sama the female main character has a secret she is trying to hide but a boy from her class discovers it. Similarly he keeps the secret from everyone, but over time she tells people. Like in Kare Kano you have a gentle, loving, and smart male character and a strong, smart, and slightly crazy female main character. In both series you get a great mix of romance and comedy

Korwin Korwin says...

Both shows are shoujo and tell a story about a seemingly perfect girl and a guy who gets to know their "dirty little secret" thus their tale of romance starts.

straydog straydog says...

the main characters relationship is pretty much the same in the maid sama and the first half of kara kano.while maid sama remains much more comedic and the kk get more serious and dramatic. they also use moe in the same way

kingshivan kingshivan says...

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! and Kare Kano are very similar, though in my opinion Kaichou is not quite as funny as Kare Kano, but they have the same elements: ultra-popular boy uninterested in anyone until ultra-popular girl comes along; Ultra-popular girl puts a lot on her own shoulders but secretly is relaxed outside of school, and is worried about being blackmailed when ultra-popular boy finds out; they both use silly drawings for inner-thought moments, or rather, both have a dichotomy of fancy art and silly art that works really well for both humor and serious drama.

They are different in certain ways too: in Kare Kano, the girl has a lot of work at school, but isn't feared only respected and adored for being intelligent, helpful, and beautiful.

Vertify Vertify says...

The romance and comedy atmosphere is simiarly the same - if you've watched Kaichou wa Maid-sama, than you at least won't hate Kare Kano. Extra praise given how old the anime is.

Shugo Chara!

Hinamori Amu is a stylish punk rock girl who is liked and feared by her peers, but there's just one problem: she's actually a shy and quiet girl who can't seem to drop her self-fabricated facade! But when Amu finds three eggs in her bed, she had no idea her life would change forever. Out of the eggs pop Ran, Miki and Su, Amu's Guardian Charas; these being represent parts of Amu that she wishes she could be, even allowing Amu to transform into those parts at will! Now, with pressure from the other Guardians (including her crush, Hotori) to join their midst, dark sides of the psyche known as X Eggs to seal, and nefarious forces after a wish-granting egg known as the embryo, Amu's life has officially become more complicated!

If you loved Kaichou wa Maid-sama like i did you will love Shugo Chara, the storylines are different however it has the same amount of humour and romance in it :)

Tsukiame Tsukiame says...

Both of the cool boy characters are similar. They are musicians so the can play violin, and the girls are first hate them, but after an accident they are between love. Those boys are seriously hard protect their "girl" and save her she is in pinch.

DarkMagicianGirl DarkMagicianGirl says...

Both girls have a guy who likes them but they both don't have any intrest in them. And both main chars act diffrent at school then they really are from the inside. If you liked 1 you will definitily like the other.

DoodlePerfect DoodlePerfect says...

It's similar with the animation and it has lots of cute scenes. It almost has the same BUBBLY atmosphere as Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama! But NOW the question is... IKUTO OR USUI?

Larkawolfgirl Larkawolfgirl says...

Both have hot violin-playing guys who sexually harass the female lead. Both have crossdressing boys. Also, Sakura and Yaya have similar temperaments. 

Ilsa Ilsa says...

Like I said it is all about guys :D xD. Shugo chara is for litlle girls more but Kaichu is perfect shoujo romnce.

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Kamisama Hajimemashita

Nanami used to live in a ramshackle apartment with her father - a man who spent half his time gambling and the other half hiding from debt collectors - until one day the scoundrel ran away, leaving his daughter hungry and homeless. That is, until she meets a mysterious stranger in the park who deems her the new goddess of a local shrine! Unfortunately, Nanami’s new home is occupied by Tomoe, a fox familiar who objects to the presence of a mere mortal and immediately begins to bicker with the girl. If she can manage to form a contract with the troublesome man, he’ll be obligated to accept and help her perform her duties. But there’s a catch: Nanami has to kiss him first, and who’d want to lock lips with that awful guy?!

For some reason I think that both these shows have similarities, both in drawing style (the female characters, in both, exhibit large eyes and mouthes)  and character development. If you liked one, you would probably like the other.

Ilsa Ilsa says...

You might like both animes and for sure there ia a lot of similarities. But if you look for exciting romance in compare Kaichou wa maid-sama wins.

maidenveil maidenveil says...

I came to watch Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss) because I loved Kaichou wa Maid-sama.  I was not disappointed and I immediately fell for this anime as well.  Light-hearted, a bit romantic, comedy, and a bit of mystery.

emilancer2 emilancer2 says...

they both have the main guy and main girl love and the guy protecs the girl and they have the same kind of feel ether way they are both great animes and i recomend both

shuuki shuuki says...

I guess the two themes/genre are very similar though one is in daily life while the other involves supernatural theme. The romance factor, which is the main part of the two animes, is so sweet and I am sure you would love it as much as you like the other one. 

lasuna lasuna says...

they're diffrent when it comes to plot, but they have a very similar feel to them. they both go into character development. just trust me when i say if you like one youll LOVE the other! 

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.

aapjee aapjee says...

Same storyline, both girls have a secret and a boy,who originally have no intrest in girls, find out about it. there is no way that thee secret may come out because that would hurt the girls reputation. unlike nogizaka haruko no himitsu, the usui kinda forces misaki to hang out with him while in nogizaka haruka no himitsu it just comes naturally. off course the characters are really diff both in- and outside but,even tough i dont know in what way kaichou wa maid sama will develop, i think of you like the storyline of this one,you surely like the other

chii chii says...

Both anime have girls that wish to keep their job or hobby a secret. Of course a boy finds out in both their situations and comedy occurs from there on. Check one out if you liked the other.

dannyly18 dannyly18 says...

IF your feeling down or sad, watch any of these and i garrentte a happy smile at the end, they all involve a sort or "battle for love" scheme built around some teenage school life, with friends jokes, cutieness, and a whole lot of surprises, i espeically love the way the artist drew each individual charcter to match and suit there personailty, non the less garreenttte watch and you'll love! chow

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

The girls have a secret they do not want anyone else to know in Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and Kaichou wa Maid-sama!  Of course the heroes in the story find out and have to try and help the girls keep their secrets.

Tempey Tempey says...

I just love this anime! Before I saw Kaichou wa Maid-sama, I watched Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and Himitsu Purezza. I also like the later, but Kaichou wa Maid-sama, is definetly better and I know if you liked this, you will LOVE this one. Both boys have to keep a secret for the girl and although the relationships are very different, they both warm your heart.
