Both anime present strong romance stories. Both manage to add healthy doses of humor to the plot without weakening it or the characters. And despite the humor, both anime have quite serious undertones concerning its characters' personal issues. If you liked the tone and feel of one, you might like the other.

If you like Lovely Compley or Aishiteruze Baby you'll probably like the other because both are slice of life anime based on romantic elements. They represent the life of teenagers and feature their problems yet they have a comedic overall image.

CrazyBeverly96 CrazyBeverly96 says...

These are both shoujo-romance series featuring an unlikely couple. They contain episodes full of humor but take the characters' personal problems very seriously. The main characters in these shows aren't really that much alike, but I will say that both of the male leads are very charming. The romance is also very touching and will cause tears probably. The main difference with these two however, is that Aishiteruze Baby is more focused on family while Lovely Complex is more focused on dating.

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.

CrazyBeverly96 CrazyBeverly96 says...

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.

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.

"Lovely Complex" and "Hana Yori Dango" are both about school romance. Though in Lovely Complex they focus on less couples than HYD.

Kio Kio says...

The main theme of these anime is not quite a simple love-story. Both series have dramatic and humorous parts always make you feel the situation and leave in hopes that everything's gonna be alright. Here is also the school theme.
