Chisato Takatsukasa would like to think he's a normal concerned parent. His attractive son, Riju, has many male friends and Chisato is certain that they all want nothing more than to take advantage of him - and thus he concocts schemes to scare away each and every one of them. However, there's one man who doesn't seem to get the hint: Shunsuke Sakaki, Riju's best friend who is secretly in love with Chisato. Through a series of encounters Chisato comes to realize he has feelings for Shunsuke as well, but what about Riju and his feelings?
Mira Munakata is a typical high school freshman; he goes to school, hangs out with friends, and has sex with his father. Ok, maybe not so typical. With the affections (and advances) of everyone from childhood friends to senior classmates, Mira has a wide selection of prospects to choose from; but the only one he really wants is his loving (literally) father Kousuke. So, when Kousuke stays out late and is rumored to be married to his beautiful co worker, what’s a boy to do but cry?
Papa and Kirepapa, besides sharing the word "papa," are two shounen-ai anime that have a similar tone and feel. Strange family relationships are explored in both as well. If you liked one, give the other a try.
Featuring some mild incest, both heavily feature the relationship between a young and innocent boy and his "father". Even though it sounds a little wrong, these shounen-ai shows will greatly appeal to the fangirls who adore man-love. I know both did with me ;P
Boys and their fathers have such a wonderful relationship.... well maybe a little *too* close in both of these wonderful short anime. If you like pretty boys doing lots of smooching and the drama that comes with such romances i suggest you check out one if you liked the other.
Its similar when it comes to both fathers loving men but in Papa to kiss in the dark the father loves the son in more ways than 1
Both of these shounen-ai anime focus on more forbidden relationships. Both the central couples in these series consist of an older man and a school boy. If you want a show with boy love aplenty and comedic content then look no further than both Kirepapa and Papa to Kiss in the dark.
These two shows take an already taboo topic and make it even more so! If you enjoyed the forbidden element to one of these romances then give the other a shot.
Aside from having "Papa" in the title, both of these explore generation-gap relationships. Both have a slight plot-twist toward the end, and some inherent drama. If you liked one, you'll like the other.
Misaki Takahashi has little hope of getting into a university, so his older brother Takahiro's friend, Usami Akihiko, offers to tutor Misaki as a favor to Takahiro - for Usami is secretly in love with him. However, as time passes Misaki realizes that he has uncomfortable and budding feelings for Usami. Meanwhile, Hiroki is a man who can't get over an unrequited love with Usami in the past - and with the help of Nowaki, he may finally learn to love again. These couples and more experience the joys and sadness of love between men under the most unlikely conditions.
Junjou Romantica and Kirepapa have similar character stereotypes: one man is the relatively weak, unaccepting of his feelings sort of guy, while the other is the dominant and forceful type who pushes his way onto the body of the other. It goes without saying that both are shounen-ai anime, as well.
Kirepapa and Junjou Romantica are a perfect match in every single way. Both are modern shounen-ai anime with similar character interactions that explore the dynamics so particular to the genre. A dose of humour and some drama make them even more akin as does the smooth, clean and bright artwork.
Similar story lines when it comes to author with yaoi lover trying to be accepted by his father. My fav yaoi by far. So addicting! Just because you cant watch season 1 without watching season 2 watch season 2 as well! (Action in the first ep!)
If you liked the comedy and the relationship between an older man and younger boy, in either Kirepapa or Junjou Romantica then you may well like the other. While there is much more hesistation and angst in Junjou, both have a similar feel to them.
The biggest and most obvious similarity between Junjou Romantica and Kirepapa would be that they both center around the relationship of two males; one being a teenage student and the other a grown adult. Junjou Romantica is much longer and more fullfilling, but they both include strong drama, intimate situations, and similar humor. If you're interested in one, give the other a try.
As the only son of a yakuza boss, Ranmaru Oumi is set to marry his childhood friend Kaoru in an effort to unite their families - but he's not happy about it! When a wedding night spat sends Ranmaru to the cruise ship's bar, he meets Alberto "Al" Valentino, an Italian man with a love of all things Japanese. Between Kaoru's bossiness, fights with a rival gang, and Al's unexpected advances, Ranmaru is sure to have a honeymoon to remember!
Both are excellent examples of the Yaoi Genre. They both have sex scenes, though not overly explict.
In addition, they both have a reluctant/resistant (at first) love interest, and a confident and unrelenting pursuer.
The art styles are also very similar. Not sure if its because they were by the same studio (Because I don't know!) But if the style was one of the things you particularly enjoyed about one, then it's likely something you'll enjoy in the other.
Misaki has made his way to attending a university, and continues to live with distinguished author Akihiko – a man who is persistent as ever in pursuing a relationship with Misaki. However, with Akihiko's editor insisting that Misaki keeps his distance to avoid scandals and Misaki’s stubbornness in full force, it’s difficult for the boy to admit his feelings to his benefactor. As if things couldn't be more complicated, the arrival of Haruhiko, Akihiko’s brother, throws yet another wrench in the gears. With Haruhiko now showering Misaki with gifts and Misaki's indecision on the rise, will Akihiko and Misaki finally see their relationship to flourish?
Just because you cant watch season 1 without watching season 2. Love it so much and i know youll love it too. Similar story lines when it comes to author with yaoi lover trying to be accepted by his father. My fav yaoi by far. So addicting youll love it too! (Action in the first ep!)
Ritsuka has nowhere to run or hide. He lost his memories and his mother’s loving support, and then his brother -- his sole defender -- was brutally murdered. He is entirely alone until Soubi appears, saying the words he most wants to hear, but refuses to believe: “I love you and will do anything for you.” Flung into a world of intrigue and magic, where bonded pairs battle and only Soubi can fight for him, he struggles to find his brother’s killer. Yet he must also face the most bitter question of all: if you can't remember who you were, does that mean you don't know who you are?
Like shounen-ai? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this recommendation. In my experience, most shounen-ai is pretty similar (everyone falls nicely into the seme vs. uke dichotomy, etc.) so if you like one (Kirepapa, for instance), you'll also like another (such as Loveless)
