Synopsis:

Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge

Nakahara Sunako, a high school girl whose interests include horror movies, coffins and gore, is sent by her aunt to live in an extravagant mansion with four ridiculously handsome boys. As if living with these “radiant creatures” who give her constant nosebleeds isn’t hard enough, she soon discovers that the boys have made a bet with her aunt: in exchange for free rent, they will try to mold Sunako into a magnificent lady. As someone who has cast aside all her femininity and sworn to live in darkness, Sunako is ready to do whatever it takes to nullify these efforts; but is there a way for the creatures of darkness and light to coexist?

The themes of YNSH and Lovely Complex are similar (love and acceptance), even if the plots are not. Both are quite amusing as well.

LaughOnceInARedMoon

Even though the plots are different, both Lovely Complex and Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge are very fun to watch. While the plots are different, they both deal with the ups and downs that occur when you have girls in your life. If you liked one I think you would like the other.

risuta

Lovely Complex and Yamato have many similar features. They are funny and hilarious with not that much romance (just hints of it). I highly recommend both.

kaoriblaza

Lovely Complex is a romance comedy as well! :) There is also a fairly important moral to this story as well as the one taught from Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge.

mangomania333

Its super funny! And both the main characters in Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (Pretty girl evolution) and Lovely complex have to overcome their self-conciousness

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

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.

aminex

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!

Ailly

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.

HamsterPop

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!

Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile

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.

lungcancer

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.

doremouse

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.

eaper

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.

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.

Cobberwebb

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.

ofall

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.

lureendscallin

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.

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...

MonkeyZerg

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.

lungcancer

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

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!
