President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...
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
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.
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
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.
The HUGEST DIFFERENCE IS: this anime takes you through their whole relationship, not just "fall in love and then end." So, be prepared to have a not-so-happy ending. Also, the pictures are not as good and detailed as Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama. It's not as funny, it's more like a serious past thing. And in this anime no-one really struggles to find their love. It just... HAPPENS. If you're okay with that, then try Kare Kano.
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.
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.
A comedic school romance, these two animes are similar in that...they just are! haha However they focous on different issues.
Okay, I tried this... AND DROPPED IT. The plot is gud, but if you're not okay with really different animation styles and the pictures... well... then no. But the story is awesome.
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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
Once a popular all girls' school, Ousai Private Academy is now co-ed due to declining birth rates. Takatoshi Tsuda, a boy newly attending Ousai solely because of the proximity to his house, is quickly forced to become the student council vice president and male representative of the school by president Shino Amakusa. Now looked upon as nothing more than a filthy pig by his female peers, Takatoshi must cope with learning about a whole new side of the opposite gender, hearing plenty of dirty sex and period jokes along the way!
In both the main character is predominantly surrounded by members of the opposite sex. Misaki Ayuzawa is president of the of a newly co-ed school. The same occurs for Takatoshi Tsuda who is one of two males in a newly co-ed school, he is also on the student council
SYD focuses on a all girls school, adding boys and taking a boy in as a student council member. Maid-sama is an all boys school that just added girls and has a girl in the student council. The series are both comedy with some romance (although maid-sama has a lot more romance).
An all boys school turned co in the one, an all girls school turned co in the other. While maid sama has more of a plot and character development, they both have a lot of ranomd jokes sewed in.
If you liked one you will probably like the other.
Having watched Seitokai Yakuindomo, I couldn't help but feel that I had already seen Misaki Ayuzawa before. It was then, that I realized that she and Shino Amakusa resemble each other a lot. Both are hard-nailed presidents, with the goal of improving their beloved school, which in both cases has just gone from all girls/all boys to co-ed.
I like both animes for their ecchi content and the perverse characters, but also for the fact, that they both take the plot and character developtment seriously. And last, but not least, the animation quality of both is orgasmic :)
