After another long day of rejection, Seiji discovers that the love of his life might have finally appeared, but in the unlikeliest of places... his right hand?! Now, in addition to dealing with daily fights and the gossip of his classmates, Seiji must handle a new problem of embarassing proportions: Kasugano Midori, a pretty young girl in place of his hand, who happens to have fallen in love with him!

Chobits and Midori no Hibi are both hilarious looks at a bumbling boy and a somewhat unusual (and/or, unattainable for certain reasons) love-interest. Off the wall wackiness is prevalent in both, with serious moments as well. Definitely you'd like one if you liked the other.
SImilar plot by which male main character suddenly has female counterpart he cannot make heads or tails of.

In Midori Days and Chobits, a cute girl comes out of nowhere and enters a guy's life. The guy becomes shy and gets himself involved in plenty of humorous situations. Chobits is cuter than Midori no Hibi, but both are funny and cute nonetheless!


The unique style of how the characters meet in Chobits and Midori Days is similar as is the strange love interest between the main characters. They both have a similar plot line dealing with some ecchi, although the relationship as a whole remains relatively innocent.


Chobits is, in my opinion, the better of the two. However, anyone who enjoyed one will probably enjoy the other.

Both involve serious moe factors - robots and hand-girl-thingy. While the male protagonists in these series are seemingly different, they are similar in that they lack experience with girls and then fall for something that's not quite human. Both series also have the love interests living under the same room.


Both shows are about the relationship between the male character with the "not so normal" girl he stumbled upon, and mainly focus on the route towards becomming a "regular" couple. If you liked Midori Days for these points, I think you'll love Chobits even more.


Both series are for the most part about a guy and his rather unordinary female counterpart.  In the case of Midori Days it's the girl on his left hand and in Chobits it's a robotic young girl.  The story for both are also overall similar in that it mainly focuses on the leads as they try to become something of a regular couple.  Both are two cute and funny titles that if you found yourself liking one then you probably end up liking the other as well.


I dont know why... but these animes complement each other perfectly. Such cute charectors... colorfull animation... and fun plots!


both are good cause they make you cheer for the guy to finaly understand that they might think love will never find them but the one they should be in love with is in front of there face the whole time :)


Chobits and Midori Days have a lot in common. Its humour tends to be a mixture of both sexual tension and innocence of the protagonist. This charming combination creates a really touching love story once you relive the anime in the your head. For me personally however, I feel that Chobits had a greater impact towards the ending which signifies a completed anime, Midori Days on the other hand (no pun intended) feels like there was no continuity making the ending feel rushed and had less of an impact. Dont get me wrong, Midori Days is a good slice of life anime but between the two I would hands down, choose Chobits.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

I'd like to make this vote due to the similar sort of humor in both series. Facial expressions are a main key of the humor of both series. In Midori no Hibi a romance story stands central, while in GTO it's more a drama comedy, in which there is more comedy than Midori no Hibi. If you've had enough of romance comedies and want something else than a romance story, you should check out GTO, provided you do not mind old and somewhat different art. If you liked the humor in GTO and are looking for a similar sort of humor, combinded with a (thin) romance story, I suggest to check out Midori no Hibi

The humor in GTO and Midori struck me as very similar. Both are about a delinquent who gets into trouble with girls. The mindset of the two main characters is kind of the same too. Midori is just a tad more romantic than GTO.


Everyone loves a screw up. Sometimes the screw up can change the world! GTO seeks that by going back to school and making it better for those who are still growing up, and hopes to prevent them from making his mistakes. In Midori Days, the main character has to change himself and see the world in a new way.


Both of these anime's are about a gang leader who knows nothing but violence.Also, both the main characters have to change their way of living because of something. In midori days, this is the fact that Midori becoms seji's right hand and in GTO it's Onizuka's dream of teaching. There are some identical genres, like comedy and a little bit romance, you can also find some ecchi in these series.


If you like Great Teacher Onizuka or Midori days, I can't stress enough how much you will like the other.

If you ask me in a lot of ways the main character of Midori days Seiji Sawamura and the main character of GTO Eikichi Onizuka are a lot alike, aside from age differences both characters look alike , yet they do not portray so many sissy looking males in anime today. They are both strong and can pretty much kick anyone’s ass; they both have a strong sense for justice (they do not like seeing anyone being bullied) and are often misunderstood. Onizuka and Seiji also have an act for not being so lucky with the ladies (Does not mean someone isn't watching). The difference GTO is a feel good anime about Onizuka solving his student’s problems and helping them into adulthood, while Midori Days is more of a romance where Seiji learns in his own way how to grow up. If you loved one you will love the other!


If you like the strong rebel character of Seiji, with his girl-crazy fantasies, but good guy beneath the surface tendancies, then you will probably enjoy Onizuka in Great Teacher Onizuka.  Both shows have on the edge humour. Plus, GTO does not have a simpering Midori character.

Both series have a thin romance story having a small character as main role, which does the housekeeping. The series contain some fanservice(Hand Maid May having quite a bit more than Midori no Hibi). I found the humor in Midori no Hibi more enjoyable than the humor in Hand Maid May. So if you want a series with more fanservice, at the cost of the humor, check out Hand Maid May. If you are however interested in more humor than Hand Maid May, you should check out Midori no Hibi
A small girl totally in love with the giant guy? Just like Midori no Hibi, Hand maid May got the cute little girl who wants to do everything to make her master happy. But May doesn't sit on the guys hand all the time ;) She actually moves around. This series also contains the love drama that Midori no Hibi got and is just as cute, so be sure to check it out.

Both Midori and Hand Maid May have a romance-based story where comedy gets the upper hand - in addition to a tiny girl that loves a big guy!  


Both Hand Maid May and Midori Days include a main female character who is smaller than your average woman. Although the main male characters are very different, the same kind of humor is apparent in both series.


Hand Maid May and Midori Days have one thing in common: both of the main characters start off in the same place in life and both have a boyfriend... sort of.  

They have the same sort of atmosphere so I think it's a good match.

Midori Days and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka both are ecchi/comedy/romance anime. They both have a male lead who is feared by many because of his delinquent image, while he is actually a fair and kind person, despite being a super-strong fighter. Both main characters eventually get to make up their mind about what they're really wishing for in a similar way (a little bit beyond the usual "take a pick" dicision). Also, both series have very similar animation, adding to the feel these shows have. If you liked one, I'm sure you'll enjoy the other as well.


With both anime you hava a rumored male protagonist, who lacks luck in dealing with girls, the difference is that in akane-iro ni somaru saka the boy is still caught within them while midori days is caught but by only one girl.


If you have the hots for some delinquent male leads Midori Days and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka are the shows for you.  These loveable guys with a bad boy image get captivated by the females around them in a hilarious romp through high school life.  While Akane-Iro is much more realistic, Midori Days still maintains the comedic feel.


If you liked one then you'll probably like the other because the male lead in both titles are something of a bad boy and are rather feared by everyone else.  As well as the fact that in both series the male lead has a hard time deciding what he really wants.

Both Midori no Hibi and Aishiteruze Baby are about a guy who is looking for that special girl to get rid of his lonely heart, when all of a sudden his whole life is turned upside down; humor ensues! Though as the story develops more, each series becomes more serious.


Both are about boys who are missing something in there life, and are thrown into a tough spot. They suddenly cant be childish anymore and are forced to grow up and deal with the problem at hand.(no pun intended.) Giving them a chance to find what they were missing. Both shows serious and comical at the same time. making them great.
