This is one of those gut feeling recommendations. These two shows have very different plots, but the relationships the characters have with each other along with their interactions are similar in both shows. So, if you cared for the characters in one show I would suggest you check out the other for a similar feel to a different situation.

MarvelousMars

In some respects, I feel like Skip Beat! is a modernized and expanded version of Kare Kano.

The plots and characters may seem very different at first glance, but the approach the animes take to comedy are eerily similar. You can't miss it- the cartoonish versions of the heroines when they're surprised or gloomy. 

Either way, both animes are a riot to watch.

To Heart

To Heart

Hiroyuki Fujita's only distinguishing trait appears to be his perpetual laziness... but he has something about him that lets him make friends with girls easily, and has a kind side that his childhood friend Akari loves. Follow their 'everyday adventures' in high school with this light schoolkid comedy.

kamirura
A typical school anime just like KareKano(His and Her sircumstances). To heart is more sweet I would say than KareKano. The story is really cute and not too much serious stuff. This is a school anime about smaller kids than in KareKano. So if you want a sweet school anime watch this one.
TheBurningCrow
Both of these series are high school love stories, so if you liked one, you'd like the other. They are both the same atmosphere and have a similar feeling.

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo
  • Movie (1 ep x 98 min)

Things change one day when she suddenly gains the ability to leap through time! At first, she uses her newfound ability to do things such as preventing her sister from stealing her dessert, cheating on a test, and singing Karaoke for 10 hours. However, the small alterations she makes to the timeline turn out to have unforeseen consequences that snowball into dramatic and lethal situations for her and those around her...

hurin

Toki wo, like Kare Kano, has high school life, romance, personal growth, and science fiction.

Even if you're not into sci fi but liked the personal growth aspect of Kare Kano, you mght appreciate this.

Tomte

Both series have a good storyline and the same type of platonic love romance. Kare Kano have a comic streak to it that is missing in Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo, but it makes up for it in a kinda subtile humor of a naive girl.

Arakawa Under the Bridge

Arakawa Under the Bridge

Eternally indebted to the supposed extraterrestrial, Kou moves into her little community under the bridge along the Arakawa river. Ripped from his life of luxury and success, the young Tokyo U graduate now must adjust to his well-appointed hovel, strange new neighbors, and peculiar lover, Nino.

Rilkar

In Kare Kano there's a style (The screen showing trafic lights to say that the characters are walking home or showing something on screen for less than a second) that seems very similar to Studio Shaft's style. Also both shows are about first love. If you liked one you should watch the other.

Fruits Basket

The comedy is similar in both, although Kare Kano sticks a little more to reality in the everyday situations. The backstories of the characters are compelling in both, and similarly create depth for the cast.
