Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

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.

Oehr Oehr says...

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!

Honey and Clover and Lovely Complex skillfully deal with the transition from life inside of to out of school. They efficiently mix warm and hilarious comedy with heart-wrenching drama to create pathos that further draws the view into the lives and relationships of the characters. The art style also rounds up the similarites between the three; the only major differences arising from the color palette.

Merryberry Merryberry says...

So what happens when someone falls in love and the other person never realises? It is this theme that is common to both Honey and Clover and Lovely Complex. Because of the use of comedy and dramatic scenes, you feel that the relationships experienced in the anime are part of your very life. Through in similiar artistic styles and some great interesting script and a combination that covers pretty much every part of relationship forming.

Both of these are stories about growing up. The characters must learn to stand on their own two feet and they must make very tough decisions for their future.

Lovely Complex and Midori Days both feature a frustrating male protagonist, who seems to be completely oblivious to the wonderful girl in his life and his real feelings for her. However, unlike many similar romantic shows, there is actually a conclusion for the relationship.

Midori has a lot more ecchi, but both shows have some extremely funny moments that will appeal to viewers of both.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

Both titles features a male lead that no matter how obivious the female lead is about her feelings for him he never seems to completely get it.  At the same time he is also completely oblivious to the feelings of the other girls around him who also have crushes on him.  Though both series have a good amount of comedy in them Midori Days does tend to have quite a bit more ecchi in it, but they both are still quite funny.  If you liked one then you may want to check out the other.

Even though one anime deals with a couple in making dealing with height issues, the other takes it to a whole other level by making the female protagonist toy size and attaching her to the main male protagonist right hand. Midori Days and Lovely Complex are a couple of romance comedies with very light drama and such a great ecchiless experience. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Skip Beat and Lovely Complex both have the same type of over done humor that can't help but make you laugh. If you enjoyed Kyoko's hilarious emotions you will love the comedy of Lovely Complex.

Millem Millem says...

They both are funny love stories you would really like, and there are a lot of emotional scenes too not only funny. This is the best combination for a love story.

"Marmalade Boy" and "Lovely Complex" are very similar with the love triangles and squares, the misundertandings, the lovers' quarrels, etc. On both animes you see the complications that can happen in the relationship between a boy and a girl.

AznAniGrl AznAniGrl says...

Whoever said there is a very thin line between love and hate must have been talking about the main relationships in Marmalade Boy and Lovely Complex. These two anime are very similar in that they are about relationship and its ups and downs. If you like romantic, day-in-the-life tearjerkers with a good dose of comedy, you will bawling through this.
