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?
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
The dynamic within the core group of girls has a very similar feel to it in both shows. They also share similar character styles and humour. Both Azumanga Daioh and Love Hina are very silly, which is part of the charm.
Although the setting is a little different in both anime, what they have in common is the silly/humour factor. Azumanga Daioh is a little bit more weird, and Love Hina has more love and drama. But the main thing that makes both anime appealing to me is that I can't watch either of them without continuously having a wide grin across my face.
Deep in the mountains, isolated from civilization, there is a boys-only school that will finally be receiving its first class of girls in an attempt to transform the school into a co-ed one. Most of the boys have never been in contact with girls of their own age, leading to an explosion of hormonal craziness. From the sickeningly perverted fetishist guys, to a rather odd girl that seems to be chasing the most normal guy in the school for reasons known only to her, there's twisted humor to be had.
Love Hina has less ecchi (yeah well, nothing comes close to Green Green), but has the same amount of comedy and romance. The story flows in a similar way, though Green Green's runs a bit deeper.
Chitose Hitotose was orphaned at a young age and is now in high school. He yearns for a family and a place to belong, but his long years of independence and isolation are setting his feet on a dangerous path. What is the solution that his teachers conceive? He needs a mother... but it's not just one, but five "Mamas!" Absolutely no one can discover that his teachers live under his roof, and he has to hide the fact from everyone, from the class president to the principal! With their maternal instincts in overdrive and mysterious pasts, can Chitose learn the lesson of happiness?
Like harem series where one guy ends up having all sorts of crazy things happen to him due to the women around him? Look no further than Love Hina and Happy Lesson. While the women in Happy Lesson are more supportive towards the main character and the women of Love Hina are more violent, they both have the same atmosphere and humor overall. If you enjoyed one, you are sure to enjoy the other.
Both Happy Lesson and Love Hina feature the ever popular Harem theme wherein a male teenager is surrounded-by/living-with several females of varying archetypes leading to many hilarious misadventures, often caused by one or more characters' well-intentioned, but poorly thought out plan.
When the students of class 2-A at the all-girls Mahora Academy head back to school, they are expecting a new year as usual. What they get is a new homeroom teacher... who's 10 years old! As if being a genius isn't enough, Negima is a mage. As part of his training to be a Magister Magi, he must succeed at teaching - without anyone finding out he's a magician! Can Negi keep his talents a secret from the girls who just adore the cutest new addition to their academy? Through demon attacks, magical enemies, and English tests, Negi will put all his talents to the test to be the best teacher he can and achieve his goal of Magister Magi.
Mahou Sensei Negima! and Love Hina are both about a single man who has to deal with a group of ladies he is living with. The two anime incorporate the same type of humor and were even drawn from the same manga artist. You should see them both.
first of all they are made by the same person ken akamatsu. second they are so great! they have a overwhelming comedy feel but deep in your mind you know there is a bit of drama going on. not to mention he uses a part of the same idea one guy a whole lot of girls.
Mahou sensei negima and Love Hina, both have similarities that seemed to attract me towards the series. Both are compiled of a shy boy and multiple girls, whether its the shy girl who is trying to confess, or the violent girl who is about to knock him out. Both storys are filled with plot twists and a lot of fun!
Yusaku Godai is a ronin – a person who failed his entrance exams. Though eager for a second chance to succeed, Yusaku’s attempts to study for future exams are constantly thwarted by his fellow residents at Maison Ikkoku, who insist on using his apartment for their debauchery and drinking games. Though tempted to call it quits at the house, things change when Maison Ikkoku’s beautiful new building manager, Kyoko, arrives. With plenty of competition from the sidelines and interference from his drunken and provocative neighbors, Yusaku must now focus his energy on winning the girl of his dreams, Kyoko!
There's at least three similair things in both Love Hina and Maison Ikkoku. 1: They're both typical love stories with a love-at-first-sight scenario, rivals and misunderstandings and slowly evolving romance. 2: There's a healthy amount of comedy in both of them, though in Love Hina it's more crude and there's more ecchi included too. 3: In both series the backdrop of the events is a dormitory, where the hero or heroine starts working and thus sets off a chain of events.
