Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.
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 However, the girl can’t stay withdrawn forever, especially after attracting the attention of the handsome Yamato, who finds her caustic personality interesting and strives to date her after she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?
Both are about a girl who is an outcast in school though they have very opposite perceptions about friend making. They both also have a very popular male lead who is curious about the girl and wants to befriend her.
I agree, Suki-tte Ii na yo totally reminds me of Kimi ni Todoke, outcast girl being chased after by the most popluar boy of school.
Similar basis for the stories. Both shows are pretty cute, although Kimi ni Todoke is more innocent.
Suki-tte Ii na yo, reminds me of a faster pace version of Kimi ni Todoke. As you can tell from the title of episode one of Suki-tee Ii na you, it's much faster paced, but it works well for this anime. I wouldn't want Kimi ni Todoke to be much faster than it is, and so far I wouldn't want Suki-tte Ii na yo to be any slower than it is.
The two have pretty much the same premise. Mei isn't quite as dark as Sawako, but she still has problems interacting with others, and Yamato is just like Kazehaya, except he moves quicker. Anyways, if you liked Kimi ni Todoke or Suki-tte Ii na yo, you should check the other out.
Main characters in both animes are unsocial girls. The plot is basically the same so if you liked one you will like the other too.
Both of them have no friends at first, but then makes friends and afterward face the troubles by being socialeted
Very similar anime. Both are about a highschool girl, invisible to the rest and the most popular guy in school falling in love with her and letting her open up. Both are calm love stories that take it slow, although Suki-tte Ii Na Yo is more serious and realistic due to some of the problems in this show. Also, Kimi Ni Todoke is more pure, since both the boy and the girl are very shy, while in Suki-tte Ii Na Yo everything is taken to the next level. Still I truly believe that if you liked one, you will definitely like the other one as well.
If you liked one you will like the other.
The feel is identical, and the characters are nearly carbon
copies of each other. Kimi is a little slower and prolongs
the drama a little better, but both are excellent choices.
Both of the girls aren't popular. They both get a very popular, very well liked guy to fall in love with them, by accident. They have rivals, they make new friends who were once their enemies.
They are so much alike. Both with girls that are not very confident in themselves and also have a hard time making friends. The guy comes along sweaps them off their feet, making them feel more cofident in themselves. Say "I love you" is a more mature version on kimi ni todoke; still keeping the innocence and first love feel to it, it introduces some other topics that are present in teenage life today. You'll love both as equal! :D
Right, what everyone else said: these two anime are mirror images! Though I'm a bit surprised peple only mention the starting premises.Also the drama is COMPLETELY the same. Same characters with the same attributes - and of course someone who tries to split everything apart. And what happens after is of course the same as well - but I won't go into detail... that would be spoiling ^_^
Both stories follow a similar romance type style. They're both also very very cute. I know I enjoyed both.
These two series complement each other perfectly, Suki-tte Ii na yo is a bit more serious take on the "Lonely girl comes out of her shell" story, while Kimi Ni Todoke does not take itself as seriously, watching both protaganists journey is fun. Both series are highly entertaining.
Both have a similar storyline. Kimi ni Todoke is longer with more innocent love. Suki-ette Ii na yo is more dramatic. Both are cute and worth watching!
Aside from the similarities in plot & premise, I really think that the two characters of Sawako and Mei are cut from the same cloth. Shy, outcast, and soft-spoken, they are totally lovable protagonists which make these two shows shine.
So similar that I would naturally think of the other. Both are about a shy, kind girl with low self-esteem, falling in love with the most popular boy in school. Both of our heroines start off with no friends, but gradully start to open up and get accepted by their peers. Even the love rival is the same concept, the cute, popular girl in school, who likes to scheme.
The feel from both of these is the same, but kimi ni todoke is longer and more dragged out, and it focuses on the secondary pairings more.
Kimi ni Todoke, and Say "I love you" are extremely similar! The feeling both anime's give off show you that. Both leading females are in the same situation, where they are on the bottom of the food chain, unpopular, and unsociable. Then the leading male role, who is extremely popular takes interest with them.
These two series are what I call "mirror series"
They both tell the same story and yeat, they are stil both worth the watch.
KnT is more powerful on the dramatic element but it has slow pacing.
Say "I love you" will get thee message out quicker and still have a good deal of quality backing it up.
The character and plot scheme is the same, after waching 1 you will be able to predict the other, it's that close but once gain still both worth the watch.
They're both cute romances. I love how these two animes showed the process of developing feelings for others.
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?
Both Sawako from Kimi ni Todoke and Sunako from Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge are female protagonists who give off an extremely creepy vibe. While this is well-founded in the horror-loving Sunako and completely wrong for Sawako, this ongoing creepy theme is prevalent in both series. Also, while they are handled differently, both are ezzentially about male protagonists attempting to transform a socially awkward girl. If you enjoyed one, it's well worth watching the other.
Both of those shows focus on a gloomy, "sadako-like" girl without much self-confidence. Due to influence of a certain boy (or a group of boys in Yamanade) she gradually changes her ways, becomes more open and learns how to loose the "ghost" aura in order to show her beauty.The main difference is that Yamanade main focus is comedy, and Kimitode main focus is heartwarming. Still, both are entertaining shoujo stories with "if-you-make-effort-you-can-change-and-make-friends" theme.
Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge and Kimi ni Todoke have very scary girls as the main heroines, or at least everyone believes them to be scary. The male protagonists in the story are attempting to change the socially awkward girls into something'normal' for the society around them. Neither one of the heroines have very much self-confidence in themselves which makes it hard for them to make friends. The journey to change is what is exciting about each of the series.
Both girls are mistaken for the girl from the ring. These two creepy protagonists go through very similiar battles to become 'normal'. Kimi ni Todoke is a little more dramatic/romantic though.
Both animes Kimi ni Todoke and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge are very similar because they were both girl who are very scary at the beginning and was thought to be the Sadako girl from the ring and they weren't really good at communicating to others. But then a boy shows up trying to change them and it turns in to a romance anime
Sawako and Sunako- both girls with a creepy vibe likened to Sadako from the Japanese horror film The Ring. Due to said creepiness they are often misunderstood and avoided by their peers. But their true personalities come out when certain someones take it upon themselves to understand them. These two shows have lots of similar circumstances, but where Kimi ni Todoke focuses the situation in a more realistic light- YNSH takes a slightly more zany and comedic approach.
It's also about an out-casted girl. She was scarred by her old love, so she lost hope. She starts to isolate herself with "dazzling creatures." Those dazzling creatures are her house-mate, but they have to help her become a proper lady for a lower rent.
Both series are about a girl who scares others as "ugly" they are. Suffer much from being antisocial and not able to speak with others. The series will tell their adventures and gradual transformation.
Both of these animes are about an 'outcast' girl who eventually blossoms throughout the story. If you loved Kimi ni Todoke, you will love Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge. I promise you that much. (:
Yamato and Kimi both have the shy and "creepy" main girls there is more romance in kimi but more comedy in yamato... both awesome :D
Both protaganists are not your traditional heroine. Every guy in the show doesnt like them, and they don't turn everything to gold that they touch. Both funny!
both of them have beautiful plots AND beautiful bishounen protagonists and the love stories between sunakoXkyouhei and sawakoXshouta will keep you watching both of the series!
Sunako and Sawako are the same. And both anime are worth watching.
Both Sawako and Sunako are actually quite similar and have people trying to open them up! <3
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...
Two cutest stories about love and friendship. Both the main characters - Risa and Sawako - has their problems and friends helping them to overcome it all.
I can say a lot, but definitely, If you watch one anime you'd like the other.
Both Kimi Ni Todoke and Lovely complex are sweet stories centered around coming of age romances. The sentimentality and use of "misunderstandings" as a plot device is central to both shows. While Lovely Complex has a little more comedy and Kimi ni Todoke is more of a drama both shows aim to pull at the same heartstrings while exploring the trials of understanding one's own heart. If you liked either of these shows you probably would enjoy the other.
If a super sweet high school romance is what you are looking for, you will not go wrong by watching either Kimi Ni Todoke or Lovely Complex. Both have that innocence that is so a part of what we all remember of our first love. That same innocence that seems to conquer all adversities. Both excellent, both romantic, both endearing. Watch them both!
They both have a sense of breaking sterotypical barriers. Except the main characters of Lovely Complex have more comedy and more drama.
Both anime are a dynamic of what can happen if budding friendship can take a turn to love interests. With either parties being unsure of the others feelings If you liked one you'd be sure to enjoy the other.
Though Kimi ni Todoke has a little more drame than Lovely Complex both series a still major comedies that use their comedy to help keep things lively and from becoming to burden with drama. They both are still nonetheless heart-warming love stories about a guy and a girl in high school as they come to understand love. If you liked one then you should definitely check out the other.
This anime is the baby of Toradora & Kimi ni Todoke! You have the loud comedic act and the heart-tugging awww in this anime. Also, both Kimi ni Todoke & Lovely Complex have hilarious expressions and over exagerations. :)
I loved both of these series' for the same reason. They are both stories based around the eventual romantic relationship between two people that are very different in other people's opinions.
In Kimi ni Todoke Its the tipical (though still great) Unpopular, shy girl gets popular guy. Lovely Complex is about a taller then average girl and a shorter then average guy. They have a lot in common and are really funny together, but that funnyness makes a romantic relationship hard to imagine and there hight detears them as well.
Both use misunderstandings and rivalreys as plot divises. Both are really great shows. They have to be my favorite romance anime's of all time. If you like one your shure to like the other.
They both have an insecure main character, with issues of selfesteem. Both have alot of similarities regarding love situation, trouble with looks and selfawareness. Feelings that makes the main characters move you and feel for them the whole way!
Both animes do very well in mixing humour elements in moderation (with Lovely Complex more inclined to humour, though), helping create a nice atmosphere around the plot. They both have a strong focus on friendship and lovely love stories.
Both similar plots
boy and girl odd couple
tearjerker at times
this is the cutest thing i have ever seen in my life. no joke. if you liked this, you'll like lovely complex. and vice versa.
After recovering from an accident, Hiyori has returned to school for the first time, and she's terrified! For Hiyori is painfully shy, and the idea of making friends, let alone introducing herself to the class, is impossible to bear. But regardless of her embarrassment, Hiyori's small stature makes her an instant hit with her peers, including the popular and attractive Yuushin. Confident or not, Hiyori's school – and love - life is just beginning...
After watching one episode of Hiyokoi I realized right away that it is very much like Kimi ni Todoke. Both stories are about a shy girl who doesn't yet have many friends. The girl comes to admire the popular boy in class who everyone likes and crowds around. In Hiyokoi the girl is frightened with meeting new people, but in Kimi Ni Todoke people are frightened at first at her. Both anime are sweet and romantic.
If you liked Hiyokoi you'll like Kimi ni Todoke and vice versa, even though I have only watched the first episode of the latter, I see strong resemblance. The main female characters are both shy and not out going and the main males are out-going and friendly. Both animes a similiar style and there messages seems to be clear, the use of colour makes both quiet bright animes. Finally, they both leave you feeling good, even if nothing overly amazing happens
Both center around an ultra shy girl who's interested in a popular boy that seems to like her, yet confessing is the hardest part...
These two series share a strikingly similar premise: shy girl with zero self-confidence meets a kind popular and outgoing guy who changes her view on the world and helps her integrate into their high school class. With Hiyokoi only spanning one episode, Kimi ni Todoke is far more developed as as tory, but if you like one then you'll likely find the other entertaining.
both animes are about a shy sweet girl who meets a popular boy who helps her overcome her shyness
These series both focus around a very outgoing guy and a very shy girl's romance. KnT is much longer, so it is a lot more slow to develope, but they both have a similar bit of humor, a similar feel, and similar bubbly/starry background (as in art style) running throughout.
The main boy in both of these tries to help a girl that's not fitting in and they end up falling for each other. I really like the characters from both.
Both stories centre around a socially-awkward, shy and lovable herione falling for the popular guy in school. They both overcome issues and settle down into their classes and you can see them grow.
Both anime focus on a shy girl trying to make friends, while falling in love with the most popular guy in school.
Both of these animes are really similar and super cute!! Both plots center around the budding romance between a shy and timid girl and the cute popular guy. The difference in Kimi ni Todoke is that the main character Sawako terrifies the other students b/c of her resemblance to a horror movie character, whereas in Hiyoki, Hiyoki is shy and small but this is what attracts her to everyone. Both are really great animes and I suggest also reading the manga for both if you want to pick up where the animes left off!!!
well, they're both about a shy girl who wants to have friends and be part of sth and who ends up with a kind and popular guy. very similar anime. kimi ni todoke has a bigger and more complex plot, though.
Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
when i started watching Kimi ni Todoke i thought that this is like a season 2 for Bokura ga Ita, both of them have almost the same type of "touching" romance aspect and even the animation of this two animes are quite similar.Both of this animes have a realistic type of romance aspect so if you like one of them you will definitely like the other one as well
Although Kimi ni Todoke is still on air, I'd like to recommend both ways. Both stories are about a girl & a boy having a romance, and while they get to know each other, they more and more get to know themselves. The inprovement of the characters of the story is a main point of the show. Highly recommended.
One of the other series I first thought of when watching Kimi ni Todoke was Bokura ga Ita. The relationship between the two main character have the same types of conflicts and real life issues that have to be overcome to make relationships work. The naivity set forth by both of the main characters is accuratly portrayed, while the suspense of the series keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.
Both of these animes are based on a school romance and real world issues that can come up
In my opinion Kimi ni Todoke is more eventful and quite hillarious.
Bokura Ga Ita is almost purely romance in contrast
Both Yano and Shota have similar actions in some parts. I personally like Kimi ni Todoke better because it is less depressing, and Yano pisses me off a lot of times. And Nana also makes me mad sometimes because she is not truthful at times but Sawako is really truthful and innocent well Nana is innocent too. But in the end i like Kimi ni Todoke better because of the outlook of a happier ending and the main chracters Shota and Sawako i even like the side chracter Ryu. Also another downer on Bokura ga ita is Yamamoto I HATE HER!! But other than that Bokura ga Ita has a nice story and is sweet...but Kimi ni Todoke is better lighter story.
If you liked one of these I'm sure you like romantic anime in general. If so then you should definitely check the other one because these shows are immensely soaked with romance. Another important common feature in Bokura ga Ita and Kimi ni Todoke is the school life theme.
Well both are fairly heavy romance animes that feature a female lead who tends to be somewhat naive to certain things. Also certain parts of the male lead are similar as well though still different enough to make them not feel like copies of each other. Though Kimi ni Todoke is more of a comedy with a good amount of romance mixed in and Bokura ga Ita is more romance with a lot of drama mixed in. Both series are still basically the same in that they are both stories of highschool romances.
Kmi ni Todoke is like a much better, innocent version of Bokura ga Ita. They both deal with drama within school and a developing relationship between the two main characters.
The story lines are somewhat similar and the way its drawn. The anime itself is awesomly dramatic
Both were amazing anime, I couldn't stop watching them.. i had to be dragged away from the computer!
Both have a destined to be couple, supportive friends, a 'friend' that tries to interfere with their relationship and they're both packed full of drama!
10/10 for me! :D
