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.

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.

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.

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.

Otome Youkai Zakuro

Otome Youkai Zakuro

In order to bridge the gap between humans and youkai, The Ministry of Spirit Affairs was formed. Military man Kei Agemaki is assigned to the new unit and seems to be the ideal candidate. He’s charming, polite, and a complete gentleman, but there’s just one problem: he’s absolutely terrified of spirits! When he arrives at the new headquarters, Agemaki is partnered up with a cute, yet brash, youkai named Zakuro. Now the unlikely pair must work together to solve the region’s spirit-related problems to help improve relations between humans and youkai, and maybe help Agemaki overcome his crippling fear while they’re at it.

In my opinion Otome Youkai Zakuro is the spiritual successor of Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (pun not intended). First of all, both are done by studio J.C. Staff and succeed each other in terms of airing (Kaichou wa Maid-sama! aired until this season when Otome Youkai Zakuro started airing). The other similarity is the romance which both anime realize in resembling fashion.

Zakuro is the spitting image of Misaki, both tend to act strong and independent in most situation but in moments of weakness they rely on their male partners/friends. And yes, they are tsundere towards the  main male characters of the show. Agemaki and Usui are more or less perfect and a showcase examples of bishounen characters, they even slightly match in appearance.

ShadowRegalia ShadowRegalia says...

The main characters are pretty similar a handsom main lead and a very independant female in addtion to this they share the same type of relationship. Both are fun to watch and the romance added in both animes make them even better

andrewlee andrewlee says...

in both animes the two main characters are very similar to each other. In both animes the girl is a tsundere character, but the guys in the animes are not as similar as the girls are. overall, you still get the same feel from both animes because of the relationships of the main characters

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

These two go about the romance plot in similar ways. Both are shoujo romance shows with strong, slightly tsundere, female leads who's love interests worm their ways into their hearts by simply being there when needed. Both are heartwarming and if you like one you are sure to like the other.

Itazura na Kiss

Itazura na Kiss

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?

For some reason I picture Kaichou wa Maid-sama! And Itazura na Kiss together.  The interplay of the two main characters seems similar in a way and the series focus on their relationship.

cahbayb cahbayb says...

A comedic school romance, these two animes are similar in that...they just are! haha However they focous on different issues.

Perfectmelody Perfectmelody says...

If you like romance and lots of it then this one is perfect for you i enjoyed this anime and thought it was really good both of the animes have two main characters that catch the attention of a very attractive man. There is comedy as well but Itazura na kiss is more focused on the romance and is a slice of life ehile Kaichou wa Maid-sama has more of a comic relief but they both are  really good.

I lke Kaichou wa maid-sama but Itazura na Kiss was good too. I jsut like Usui better =P

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!

Earl and Fairy

Earl and Fairy

Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.

If you like Kaichou wa Maid-sama! then you might also like Earl and Fairy (and vice versa) because they have similar type of romance plot =/

snivets snivets says...

Earl and Fairy is a great rec for fans of Maid-sama and vice versa. The two main characters have a very similar way of interacting with each other. If that aspect of either show entertained you, the other is worth checking out.

Doremi Doremi says...

Even though the plot is totally different, if you have seen either of these animes you will love the other.

The reason for this is the relationship between the male and female MC. Edgar and Usui are both strong, sarcastic and teasing guys. They act like all they do is teasing, but behind lies true feelings. Both has sad backstories, and they look very alike besides eyecolor.

Misaki and Lydia on the other hand aren't so alike. They both are dense, and strongwilled, but Lydia isn't as psysically strong as Misaki.

They also have a hard time accepting the actions of the male MC. Being dense, and in denial the romance is a bit on hold, but both the romantic and comedic moments are lovely.

Comparing those two, it is much more comedy in Maid-sama, and more drama in Earl and Fairy. I promise if you liked one of them you will totally fall in love with the other. Or if you haven't watched any of those, it's totally worth taking your time to watch both. Espescially if you love the shoujo genre.
