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.

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.

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!

Suki-tte Ii na yo.

Suki-tte Ii na yo.

Mei Tachibana has had neither a friend nor a boyfriend in 16 years, and she doesn’t plan on ending that streak any time soon. The outcast learned years ago that social obligations only lead to pain, and has carefully guarded her heart to keep from getting hurt. However, the girl can’t stay withdrawn forever, especially after attracting the attention of the handsome Yamato, who finds her caustic personality interesting and strives to date her after she roundhouse kicks him down the stairs. But even the most earnest of romances can be crippled by jealousy and insecurity, and this pair has plenty of both. Can their feelings for each other overcome their own emotional weaknesses, or will this love perish before it even begins?

The concept of lovey dovey is all in the air as the most popular boy and most hated girls are falling in love!Truely they compare one another, in similarties and hook-ups ! 

Psyche Psyche says...

Both involve a girl unknown to love and the most popular guy in school who tries to win them over and teach them about love. Suki-tte Ii Na Yo is a lot more mature, calm and dramatic, while Kaichou wa Maid-sama! has a lot of humour to it. If you liked one, you might just like the other.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree with the above comments. One is more serious and rolls by kind of quick due to its short episode count and the other just has a lot more fun and just runs with it. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Ilsa Ilsa says...

If you look for romance both are great choice. Suki-tte li na yo is more about relationship but I like how handsome man are there in the same idealistic way :D

Karin

Karin

Karin is a vampire, but as fate would have it she is a freak among her own kind; for Karin doesn’t drink the blood of her counterparts – she is cursed to be a blood maker, forcing her to inject her extra blood into her victims. What’s worse is that if she doesn’t find an outlet for the blood in time, it explodes in a massive nose bleed of impressive volume. In Karin's twisted day-going state, she finds it nearly impossible to find safe victims; so, nose bleeds are a major problem. When transfer student and new classmate Usui Kenta proves to have exactly the kind of emotions her vampire nature most enjoys, she finds herself in comedic dire straights!

It's a little difficult to explain why Karin and Kaichou wa Maid-sama are similar, but I know for certain that if you enjoyed Karin, you will LOVE Kaichou wa Maid-sam.

Both are school-life drama, both have sweet female protagonists that work themselves too hard. Both incorporate a lot of good humor, and there are laugh-out-loud moments in both.

Both Karin and Kaichou wa Maid-sama also have very likable male protagonists; both, ironically, with the last name Usui!

The romance is a little more straightforward in Kaichou wa Maid-sama, but Karin had very sweet romantic moments as well. If you're enjoying Kaichou wa Maid-sama, give Karin a go as well!

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

Both of these include the male lead keeping the female lead's more-or-less embarrassing secret. Both are romance driven series with comedy on the side in a school setting. If you like one there is reason to watch the other.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree, MaraRuizu hits the nail right on the head. Chibi Vampire Karin and Kaichou wa Maid sama are both a romance comedy in a school setting and the main male characters have to keep their significant other's secret. Chibi Vampire deals a lot with the supernatural and Maid sama is more slice of life but they both have the same Tsundere layout. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Nakahara Sunako, a high school girl whose interests include horror movies, coffins and gore, is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys. As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her aunt: in exchange for free rent, they will try to mold Sunako into a magnificent lady. As someone who has cast aside all her femininity and sworn to live in darkness, Sunako is ready to do whatever it takes to nullify these efforts; but is there a way for the creatures of darkness and light to coexist?

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

Both stories focus around hard working and determined female leads, with hints of romance and teen life.

I'm really surprised more people haven't made recommendations for these two. It has many similarities! Let’s first cover the obvious basic things they have in common: they are school-life romantic comedies that have darker undertones. Secondly, they are reverse harems with sexy guys!

As for the characters, both have strong female leads who literally work themselves to sickness. There is also a romance in both, but both the female leads don’t really focus on having a relationship.

Overall, I really do think if you enjoy one, you’d enjoy the other. Yes, Fruits Basket has a supernatural theme to it, but the general tone is the same as Maid-Sama!
