Synopsis:

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?

Maiku Kamishiro has always had a photo of himself as a child in front of an old house with a young girl. One day after spotting the building in a news report, the high school boy moves to the countryside to live in the house from the picture. While living alone, making ends meet by working as a freelance programmer, Maiku gets the shock of his life when not one, but two girls turn up on his doorstep claiming to be his twin sister! With the lively Miina and timid Karen both possessing the same photograph, the pair begins living with the confused Maiku as they try to figure out which one of them is actually his sister.

Both series feature falling in love as young children. However, Onegai Twins has a slight twist; with the two girls, one might be his sister.
ConnorD

In both Please twins and Love Hina There is a comelling story about a guy who meets new girls and begins to fall in love. as well as that botha re filled with plenty of Ecchi and Harem!! im sure if you liked one the other is for you. As you see there is mroe than one girl in the equasion... now the problem is... will he choose the right one?

Habhome

Several girls that like the same guy, yet they can't admit it. A romance story with much comedy.

These are a few of the aspects that make these two animes fit the same taste.

Ranma 1/2

Ranma 1/2

Ranma, raised to be a man among men, has a bit of a problem: he is half woman! While training in China he fell into a strange magic spring at Jusenkyo. Now, he is eternally cursed to change into a beautiful woman whenever he is hit by cold water, but that may be the least of his problems; his father has betrothed him to marry! There's never a dull day for Ranma as he attempts to find a cure for his curse, train to become stronger, and grapple with the fact that half of himself may be more feminine than his fiancée!

If you've seen Love Hina, you might feel like you've seen it before when you see Akane launch Ranma for being a pervert in this comedy/romance series. The characters and situational comedy of Ranma and Love Hina are very similar. Add that, characters that transform, and some wacky martial arts fighting and you'll get Ranma½. I don't know why, but the Panda (Ranma's father) is something you have to experience first hand to believe in this series. Note one big difference between this and Love Hina is that the DUB is actually GOOD. But don't take my word for it! Hear it yourself.
extent
Ranma 1/2 is another lovers in denial story. Expect more misunderstandings and physical punishment!
DarkOnister

A violent girl in both Ranma and Love Hina plays hell on the main character. The secret to their power? It could be the fact that both main characters end up being called perverts and both receive punishment like you've never seen it before. I would recommend both series.

Shuffle!

Shuffle!

Kaede is a devoted high school student who lives with her adopted brother Rin. She holds a quiet confidence that one day, when Rin finally starts showing interest in sex, he will make the obvious choice and turn to his loving sister. But what Kaede wasn’t counting on was the lords of heaven and hell coming to Earth, wanting Rin to mate with their nubile daughters! Rin, like any teenager would, takes full advantage of his newly acquired harem; but how long can he keep up his carefree, boxed-lunches-on-the-rooftop lifestyle, as the horde of girls on his tail grows?

Codeman

Shuffle! offers magic wielding female characters and Love Hina offers unfortunate, hilarious, perverted situations. Don't worry, there are many similarities including a harem aspect that both titles offer. Particular women in Shuffle! have cared for and loved the leading male character, and then one day two new women appear. These two women want to marry the male lead; that's not asking a lot now is it? In Love Hina, the leading male character has to run an all girls' inn, which provides for comedy, but also provides the viewers with romance. Love Hina does one thing that I despise, and that is the presence of love or romance, but never the open confession. Shuffle! does have numerous open confessions of love but also humor.

Both these animes are harems but slightly different.

Rin is a very sweet guy that lives with cute Kaede and he is the envy of all the boys in the school. One day two girls come to the school that are out of this world...litteraly. Both of them want to marry Rin. This show is packed with laughs, panty shots, and some nudity. Sometimes it does get really serious.

Keitaro on the other hand is a loser who can't get into Tokyo U. He's sweet but awkward and a little bit of a perv. He gets to live at an all girls dorm and manage the place. Lucky him! This too is funny but not as much nudity in it. It has more of a plot.

SypherSan

I would highly reccomend both for eachother. The resoning by this desion is that both anime's are for one, a harem. the difference between the 2 is that one struggles in school while holding up a promise to a girl he cant even remember (love hina); and one guy who struggles to find the girl he truly cares about and loves with all his heart, (shuffle!) other then that, the comedy, and all around awesomeness resideds in both, so if you liek one its definite that you'll like the other =D

Romance, Comedy and Magical just about sums both Fruits Basket and Love Hina up. Although you're getting a lot more fan service for your buck from Love Hina, both are thoroughly enjoyable good romance animes to watch
Moonfail

Love Hina and Fruits Basket are both romantic comedies. Being harems, in both, the main character has two people to end up with. Although not as explictly revealed in one, unlike most harems, the main characters end up with one of the two. Also, both have about the same amount of comedy in it.

Fruits Basket has a bit more magic and drama involved with it, but if you liked either one, you'll still like the other.

Golden Boy

Golden Boy

Having recently dropped out of law school, where he had finished the graduation requirements but didn't actually graduate, Kintaro Oe is on a new self-driven quest for knowledge. His adventures will lead him to a variety of workplaces including a computer firm, noodle shop, and even an animation studio, where his seemingly perverse attitude always tends to get him into trouble with the opposite sex. The moral of the story? Study! Study! Study!

Take a grinning, absurdly girl-crazy, awkward and over the top young man. Put him in a workplace where he is surrounded by attractive (albeit over-sensitive and unreasonable) women who constantly blow up at him for being a pervert. This describes the premise for both Love Hina and Golden Boy. Even their names (Kintaro and Keitaro) are nearly the same. The humour in Golden Boy is more explicit by far, but both are funny enough to make me laugh out loud.

Both Love Hina and Golden Boy feature a male lead who is likeable and put into "interesting" situations with women way out of his league. Golden Boy may always offer a "happy ending" but both will leave you satisfied.
