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