Love stories sometimes need to have something that makes them stand out. 

Having the right awkward juxtoposition of two lead characters can sometimes satisfy this. 

In the case of Lovely Complex, the female lead is taller than the male lead and in My Love Story!! the Male lead is a giant ogre, with looks that are not the most hansome.

If you want a clever romance Comedy and have seen or are watching one of these titles and want a similar show, give the other listed here a try.

Well friendos, the awkward height proportions don't get more similar than this. Besides, almost everybody has orange hair.

"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.

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.

Both of these series are romantic and filled with silly misunderstandings. They manage to have the perfect balance between goofy comedy and a wonderful love story.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

Romance; delightful and endearing but not without it's hardships, so unbelievably true for Koizumi Risa (Lovely Complex) and Yusaku Godai (Maison Ikkoku). They both try to win the heart of the one they love but things just keep getting in the way. Both are character driven and by all the love that occurs. It may get sappy at times, but it sure feels good. Don't mind the dated animation of Maison Ikkoku, as the story and characters make up for it. Either way, you end up with a great romantic/comedy.

What those two have in common is the issue of long being unaware of someone's feelings, and after realising them, coping with what future brings.

yuujin yuujin says...

Funny school romance including love triangles - that's how I will describe both: Lovely complex and Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo. Main characters are shy and overthrown with everyday activities so basicly they don't notice their love at first. They are just friends and only in sometime friendship starts to grow to something more.
