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.

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.

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.

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. 

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...

Did you enjoy the antics of the main characters in either Maid-sama or LoveCon? Both of these shows are notable for their energetic main characters who engage in battles of wits and will, when you really wish they'd just go out with each other already. Both are good love stories between characters who are opposites.

aminex aminex says...

Thses two are one of the cutest animes ever! it makes you laugh, cry, say "awwwww", and gives you the best feelings ever! The romance is really satisfying and the comedy is off the hook!

Ailly Ailly says...

Both are simple, honest romance anime where the main characters JUST ABSOLUTELY WON'T admit their love for each other. But you, the audience, and every other character in the series can clearly see that they are just meant to be. Expect a lot of fighting, name calling and plans to embarrass the other party with some 'Awwww' inducing, cute scenes thrown in here and there. The two series also rely on comedy for the most part, but aren't afraid to tug at your heartstrings every now and then. And don't worry, even though you'll feel the urge to facepalm yourself into oblivion during some parts, they both have a (kind of) satisfying ending. So if you liked either one of them (be it because of the comedy, romance or wacky characters), you should definitely check out the other.

HamsterPop HamsterPop says...

If you liked one of these shows, you would definitely enjoy the other. In both shows, the main couple argues quite a bit, and their relationships take a while to develop, but they have their romantic and cute moments as well. Check both shows out if you like cute and silly romance stories!

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

Lovely Complex and Kaichou wa Maid sama are a couple of anime that feature a romantically awkward couple, school life setting, and a descent amount of comedy and misunderstandings. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Working!!

Working!!

Self-professed lover of all things small and cute, Souta Takanashi finds himself dragooned into working at the Wagnaria family restaurant by the diminutive and vivacious Poplar Taneshima. Though the pay is reasonable and the clientele polite, the high school student is often at his wits' end when dealing with the quirky staff. If the indifferent and street-tough manager, katana-carrying floor chief, and terminally weak Poplar weren't enough, Souta frequently fears for his life, as every encounter with the violently androphobic Inami ends in injury. How long can he survive before the combined stress and harm do him in?

They are both animes where the main character is working at a part time job that they are troubled by but ultimately will learn life lessons from.

Fragacide Fragacide says...

If you like the random type humor of one, the other has the same kind. They're not really the same... in fact I think the only way they're the same is that both main characters work in a type of restaurant, but in Working!! the whole setting is in the restaurant, where Kaichou was Maid-sama follows the life of Misaki and the troubles she deals with (and the ones Usui causes) Both are great, and I've not given any good reasons, but if you like one, definitely give the other a try.

eaper eaper says...

These series both have similar humor and a similar amount of romance in them. If you enjoyed one, I believe you'll enjoy the other.

Kyuuchan Kyuuchan says...

Kaichou wa Maid-sama! and Working!! both are very funny and both pass a part of the series in a coffee shop because is the main character's job.

So one show has the ultimate all-round student, and the other has a girl with shut-in tendencies, but both characters are competitive, driven and terribly likable despite their flaws.

Both shows have a lot of laugh out loud moments, and while Kaichou is not as crack-tastic as Yamato, neither does it fall into moralising traps like Yamato sometimes does.

Animation wise - expect characters to melt into stick-figure forms in both shows, provide comedic shojo sparkles, cross-dressing, school sports day nonsense and a decent clutch of bishies too.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama may have a dodgy title and creepy blackmail premise, but it's far from a piece of male fan service.

annalisebee annalisebee says...

It's a bit hard to describe the similarities between these two shows, because on the surface the plots are very different. However, they share a similar sense of humor-- situational comedy relying heavily on stereotypes, sexual innuendo, irony, and chibi-fied animation sequences. If you enjoy the humor in one of them, you'll likely enjoy both (as I did!)Also, there is a live-action version of YNSH which I found enjoyable, so you may want to search that out too!

Ilsa Ilsa says...

Competitive, similar to tsundere and full of pretty boys or one pretty boy who beats everyone is what you seek. Yamato nadeshiko made me frustrated becouse of lack of romance but in both there are a lot of humorous situations with handsome boys in first place :D

OtakuAzzy OtakuAzzy says...

Kawaii-est anime everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So hilarious and love the chibi humor :3
