Ever since their first meeting at six years old, Hikari Hanazono has struggled to defeat her rival Kei Takashima at anything, whether it be athletics or academics. To date she has proven unsuccessful, resulting in Kei constantly referring to her as "second place." In reality, Kei has been in love with Hikari for quite some time, but Hikari remains completely oblivious to the fact. Now, as the top two students in a prestigious academy, the duo continues their long-running competition as part of the school's elite class of seven, the Special A. Will Hikari ever surpass Kei... or realize that he loves her?
Opposing love on seemingly opposite characters. The mains are willing to go after what they want no matter what.
Toradora en Lovely Complex are very similar. It's all about the two characters who hate each other, but throughout the series their friendship (and love) develops into an interesting relationship.
Both series feature a guy and girl who are kind of rival relationship with each other. Though in the case of Special A it's because Hikari is always trying to beat Kei in something and in Lovely Complex Risa and Otani fight because of their height differences. Still both series follow the same path that eventually leads to the characters of both series falling for each at some point or another. Also as another point both series also feature a rather interesting cast of supporting characters. So if you liked one then you may like the other as well.
Both deal with awkward feelings of first love. Special A focuses more on including comedy and giving a sense of the other characters besides the main 2. Lovely Complex deals more with the emotional and dramatic sides of falling in teen love, and has fewer comedic moments.
The shows are similar, focusing on two very different characters who clash constantly, but eventually fall for one another. The humor and characters are somewhat similar. If you liked one of the two, it's not a stretch to say you'd like the other as well.
The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.
Nodame may put romance on the backburners for a good bit of the series, whereas Lovely Complex is almost purely about it, but the relationships in both series have a remarkably similar love/hate/stupidity thing going on. Both have some silly humour, but treat the romance parts seriously.
Watching a girl fall head over heels for a guy has never been so entertaining. Both Animes share that aspect, along with alot of hilarious situations to accompany the engaging story.
Similar relationships in both stories. The guy and the girl actually behave like a married couple from the very first moment they meet. Except the guy is a bit slow in seeing this funny eccentric girl as his girlfriend. How long will it take him to forget his prejudice and realise how good she is for him?
Both series are positive and funny as well as romantic and psychologically accurate.
These series are both comedies with a lot of romantic ideas floating around in the background. Although they type of romance and comedy in these series are quite different, both are extremely funny with great love stories, making them go well together.
President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...
Did you enjoy the antics of the main characters in either Maid-sama or LoveCon? Both of these shows are notable for their energetic main characters who engage in battles of wits and will, when you really wish they'd just go out with each other already. Both are good love stories between characters who are opposites.
Thses two are one of the cutest animes ever! it makes you laugh, cry, say "awwwww", and gives you the best feelings ever! The romance is really satisfying and the comedy is off the hook!
Both are simple, honest romance anime where the main characters JUST ABSOLUTELY WON'T admit their love for each other. But you, the audience, and every other character in the series can clearly see that they are just meant to be. Expect a lot of fighting, name calling and plans to embarrass the other party with some 'Awwww' inducing, cute scenes thrown in here and there. The two series also rely on comedy for the most part, but aren't afraid to tug at your heartstrings every now and then. And don't worry, even though you'll feel the urge to facepalm yourself into oblivion during some parts, they both have a (kind of) satisfying ending. So if you liked either one of them (be it because of the comedy, romance or wacky characters), you should definitely check out the other.
If you liked one of these shows, you would definitely enjoy the other. In both shows, the main couple argues quite a bit, and their relationships take a while to develop, but they have their romantic and cute moments as well. Check both shows out if you like cute and silly romance stories!
If you like shoujo where the two main characters are endlessly in conflict with each other, but like each other despite how much they seem to hate each other, then check out either of these two shows.
Absolutely not doubt that these two are in a class of their own when it comes to Rom-coms. Great chemistry between the two main characters, no 'filler' episodes, it's all about their relationship, and getting to know their characters.
They both make you wonder how the heck this relationship will ever work because the characters don't exactly mesh well. Also, in both, there is one character that is obviously pursuing the other much more than their partner would like. The last reason is that, unlike some of shoujo, it puts more emphasis on the comedy than the gooey romance.
Both are funny and make great scenes. OMG! Fangirling over here. The only difference about the two is that the couple in Lovely Complex faced problems about their height.
Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...
The main thing Lovely Complex and Fumoffu share are comedies revolving around love stories, and really dense guys. If you liked Lovely Complex, then you'll like Fumoffu's over-the-top action comedy antics.
Both series are great for a good laugh. They share strong female leads amd dense male leads that not only makes a great combination for a relationship comedy, but are unique from all the other generic romances out there.
Both series are all about ridiculous comedy with relationship problems as in misunderstandings, interferences and love rivals! If you liked one, I'm sure you'll love the other!
