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?
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?
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.
Fifteen-year-old Tsukune Aono is average in every way; he has no hobbies, less-than-stellar grades and he's even flunked his high school entrance exam. His parents have managed to enroll him in a school, but it's no ordinary school! Tsukune will be attending the Youkai Academy, a place where monsters learn how to co-exist with humans! As the werewolves, vampires, witches and other monsters are required to retain their human forms, Tsukune - the lone human - is able to avoid their bloodthirsty gazes. However, he quickly attracts the attention of a number of devilish beauties including the vampire Moka, a busty succubus and even a young witch! It seems Tsukune's average life isn't so average anymore!
Quite worth a recommendation is Rosario to Vampire, in which the main character is - similar to Love Hina - thrown into a place he doesn't suit in. But he is slowly getting used to it and making himself friends with whom he jumps from one conflict into another. While often being far from serious the series itself is still quite a bit more serious than Love Hina is, but you would most certainly still like it. There are fighting scenes in those conflicts, but they often end up to be hilarious rather than violent. A must see!
Both series deal with a below average leads who inexplica bly find themselves put into situations where they have to pretend to be someone they aren't. All the while eventually winning the admirations of the female cast and getting pulled into some rather ecchi moments. Both shows have a decent amount of action. Love Hina keeps it light whereas Rosario is a little darker and more action themed.
Aaaaa don't you just love harem animes? Craving for more? Than you have got to check out the other one. Whether its Love Hina or Rosario to Vampire if you have the urge to watch more of this kind of anime than you are looking at the write recommendation! Watch the other if you have not now!
There both very funny, its a Ecchi it doesnt say it but its a comedy also, And its also about a guy with lots of girls that want him.
Due to unforeseen events, the male leads' life is turned upside down! All of a sudden, he finds himself in the middle of a harem, in an environment he's not used to! This little synopsis fits both series perfectly, and is almost all there is to them. If you liked the harem, ecchi, comedy and romance in one series, you'll definitely enjoy the other. The only main difference between these series, is that the female lead in Love Hina is a tsundere, while the Rosario to Vampire female lead isn't.
Tenma Tsukamoto is young, bright, and smitten with the school hottie Oji Karasuma. She's desperate for his attention, which is unfortunate considering he barely gives her the time of day! Throw Kenji Harima, the school delinquent with a crush on Tenma into the mix and you've got one twisted love triangle of unrequited proportions! Can love find the trio happiness before their attention-grabbing stunts end up hurting more than their egos?
School Rumble is similar to Love Hina in the sense that it is also about young people, students, their love relations and all the funny things that happen around them.
In both, you'll find very similar kind of sense of humor, completely clumsy characters that won't know what to do when close to their loved ones, daydreamers and many surprises in the plot.
Anyone is sure to relate to a character of each of these anime in a very funny way.
Just one hilariously awkward situation right after the other - School Rumble and Love Hina have more than plenty. In both series, the male lead hopelessly tries to chase after the girl of his dreams but somehow just ends up in more ecchi situations than one guy can handle. If you're up for a good laugh with a good love story, these anime are what you're looking for.
These are harem love comedies where the comedy takes the biggest priority. The main characters are just too dense and make tons of mistakes leading to unfortunate, yet funny, situations. Let's just say that Love Hina is the old-school mother of the genre, while School Rumble is its redefined granddaughter.
Both of those Anime have similiar dosage of humor and place main character into close situations wich gave us fun an very high level... There are both light and you can watch them any time.
These animes are almost one in the same. However Love Hina offers more ecchi scenes for ones who enjoy that type of stuff (including me). While School Rumble offers more clean entertainment. Both are worth the watch , both are absolutley hilarious, and both will have you watching the series over and over and again.
Shiratori Ryushi is a young man who wants nothing more than to be a children’s book author. To accomplish his goal he moves to an old-style apartment in the middle of Tokyo, and at first, his humble abode seems heaven-sent… but not for long! In addition to meeting Aoba Kozue, his good-hearted landlady who isn’t entirely what she seems to be, Ryushi discovers that he has a whole cast of crazy neighbors to handle! What started out a dream has turned into a nightmare of chaotic proportions. Can Ryushi survive his stay in Tokyo?
Love Hina and Mahoraba are about a boy who is staying at some sort of student accommodation. I so felt like shouting out either one of these anime titles when I saw the other.
I would recommend both of these; they have their wacky differences and that makes them all the more fun to watch.
How many times can the "young guy moves into a large house with a plethora of beautiful and diverse females" plot be done? The answer is still waiting to be found!
The naivity of the male protagonist will have you yelling at the screen for him to finally make a move on the girl of his dreams. There is also the question of which female to pick - the quiet and sweet girl, the neurotic alcoholic or the extremely violent schoolgirl. The similarities between the cast of these two shows is unmistakable.
The two stories are different enough to be enjoyable if the harem genre is for you ^^
As multiple people have mentioned, Love Hina and Mahoraba are very similar series. While the main females are vastly differant, teh Harem aspect and feeling is very much the same, and the Comedy is of the same type.
The storyline in both is very similar - a guy comes to a big town to study and rents a place from a girl, who he was friends with durnig childhood (but obviously, he doesn't remember it). But not only the storyline, but also the characters (main and side) are very much alike.
Basically, both are harem+comedy, so I'm sure you'll like it if you liked the other.
Yoichi Karasuma is a strong young samurai who was born and raised in the mountains. One day his father decides to send him to the city to stay with the four Ikuraga sisters so that he can gain valuable life experience, but his first trip into civilization doesn’t go quite as planned. Not only is he late to meet his new hostesses, but he is labelled a pervert and manages to get himself arrested – twice! Now, as he lives at the Ikuraga Dojo with Ibuki, Ayame, Kagome and Chihaya, Yoichi must adapt to his new life at school while accepting the rather violent ‘training’ he receives from Ibuki. After making an enemy of the school delinquent and with a mysterious man after his life, it seems that Yoichi’s quest to gain life experience won’t be so smooth after all!
Both Asu no Yoichi and Love Hina have the main character, whom is seemingly innocent, getting put into diffictult and often portrayed as "perverted" situations. It also has a wide range of different female characters like Love Hina, and a hint of ecchi.
What do you get when you take a teenaged boy and put him in a house full of girls, then add numerous other female characters? Nose bleeds and ecchi galor. That is the case with both of these animes. In addition to seemingly neverending awkward situations that the main characters find themselves in there is also love triangles or squares in some cases in both of these titles. If you like one the other will fit right in with your tastes.
Both of these series involve a dense, perverted, and slow (typical harem lead) male that goes to live in a place full of girls. In both series, all of the girls start to like the male lead for various reasons but can't bring themselves to admit their feelings.... very typical harms on both accounts.
