Emma and MariMite share a common theme of romantic undercurrents in a social environment dominated by strict rules of decorum. The principal commandment of both series is "follow your heart's dictates, first and foremost".

Both Meine Liebe and Maria-sama ga Miteru focus on an almost single gender cast (boys in Meine Liebe and girls in Maria-sama ga Miteru) attending a private academy, and the (supposedly, in some cases) prim and proper students that attend it. Meine Liebe focuses more on politics and dueling than Maria-sama ga Miteru, but both still have the ranking and social status pretenses in them. Both also use foreign language and concepts in them (German and French, respectively), and have hints at shoujo or shounen-ai at times. Both are very character driven, dramatic series - if you liked one, be sure to check out the other.

Both shows are about a group of girls,  slowly growing up. In Both cases we have very close friendship bewteen younger girls and very important senpai-kouhai bond between the younger and the older girls (though in Marimite this relationship is way more intimate).  Both are heartwarming coming of age stories.

Even though the differences are big ( Marimite have some mild drama, and the relationship is close to shoujo-ai, also Aria unlike Marimite is episodic) I think that if you like one of them you will like both.

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High School Host Club

Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...

This may seem like an odd pairing, but I think the characters in each series are similar. It seems that there is one "normal" character surrounding by a bunch (or at least the person closest) non-normal/rich character. Furthermore, each series takes place in a well to do school. If you want a more comedic version of Maria, I'd say try Ouran.

Each of these series focus on rather bishonen characters developing non-customary relationships. In Maria, the characters work on developing relationships with their "sisters" while the relationships in Uragiri focus on people with similar souls. Although Uragiri is more fantasy based, I think that brings each series together. They are both also slow paced with similar art styles and a similar feel between the characters.
