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?
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...
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
both shows are indeed shoujo, with a popular guy trying to get the girl and the girl hiding her secret eventually falling in love with the guy who found out her secret
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.
Aoi Sakuraba, heir to the Sakura department store, has only one thing on her mind-- her beloved. Betrothed from a very young age, she has been in love with him, Kaoru Hanabishi, ever since. After Kaoru left his family, their bethrothal was nullified. Aoi sets out to find him. Will they be able to stand against the barriers that will try to keep them apart?
In both series love is a complex matter in which the couples fight to balance regular life and their love. While Kare Kano is more focused on school life, Ai Yori Aoshi is more focused on how they deal with the developing relationship.
Both "His and Her Circumstances" and "Ai Yori Aoshi" give you a similar feel because both assure you that things will work out, even though there are sometimes difficult problems along the way.
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou and Ai Yori Aoshi are very similar in a number of respects. The romance in both stories is between a young woman who has been raised in the happiest of family circumstances, and a young man whose family circumstances are burdened with physical and emotional pain. The two couples must go through different but equally burdensome obstacles to reach the point where they can declare their love in public.
More than anything else, however, the couples are strong. They will not let their love weaken, no matter what troubles may come their way. This is a charm shared by both series, and a good reason to assume that, if you like the one, you will like the other.
The average Tsukushi Makino attends the snobby, elite Eitoku Academy, which is dominated by the Flower Four (F4) – the sons of the most powerful families. Like the rest of her classmates, Tsukushi keeps a low profile until one day she can stand it no more! For her obstinance, the F4 declare war and it's Tsukushi against all. In the middle of it all, she finds herself drawn strangely close to two of the F4; they might not be as bad as they seem. With her heart torn between two boys, will Tsukushi be able to find the love she desires?
Kare Kano and Hana Yori Dango are both high school romances with a twist. Neither is new but I have not seen any other anime that have used any of the ideas behind these two. And no, it is not the same twist.
If you are looking for unique high school series (not an easy thing to find), after having watched one of these, try the other.
Both Hana Yori Dango and Kare Kano are funny at times but also know when to be serious, so they aren't harem anime or anything. Also they are both set in a school environment with lots of angst and romance too!
Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka. But amidst the beautiful budding relationship, tragedy strikes when an accident occurs, turning Narumi’s life upside-down. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Kare Kano are two realistic looks at relationships. Well, KgNE is definitely realistic, while Kare Kano is partially realistic. Nonetheless, if you liked one, you'd probably like the realism to whatever extent in the other. I personally felt KgNE was a far superior show.
KGNE is far more serious and doesn't even have any real comedy, whereas Kare Kano mixes comedy and realistic relationships, not really giving priority to either one. Though if you want another serious romance story, this is one of your better bets at getting one.
Both series focus on romance and are very mature. They are also realistic, which makes the plot very appealing, especially if you think that love is one of the most common topics in animes, and it is difficult to cover it in an interesting way. Along both animes, you can see how the characters grow phsychologically, which makes you feel indentified with them. Another similarity between the two is that both have a surprising ending.
The differences? While Kimi ga Nozomu Eien develops around a love triangle and is more concerned about the feelings of the characters regarding love, Karekano is centered about a unique relationship (Arima and Yukino), and the characters deal not only with love but also with their complex problems.
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Well, both Love Hina and Kare Kano are about love in the first place, and both are simply hilarious. If you enjoy watching romance-comedy anime, then be sure to watch these two.
