Synopsis:

Yuuto Ayase is not interested in girls - if his two housemates are anything to go by, girls are loud, brazen slobs that are best left alone. However, when Yuuto accidentally discovers an important secret of his school’s most popular female, Haruka Nogizaka, the two become bound in a budding friendship. All too soon, Yuuto discovers that, despite her flawless appearance, Haruka is clumsy, naive, and a closet otaku... and he just might be falling for her.

Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai

Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai

Kyousuke Kosaka is a normal teenager with average grades and an average home life, but when he finds out that his overachieving younger sister Kirino has been hiding her vast anime and eroge collection from their unassuming parents, his world turns inside out! Now, having promised to help his formerly distant sibling navigate her two distinct lives, Kyousuke finds himself drawn into Kirino's world of magical girl anime and "little sister" fetish games while covering for his sibling to her parents and friends, not to mention trying to provide what guidance he can.

Simply because both are about girls who you wouldn't assume to be otaku, yet secretly are. That and both series are really, really good.

flyboy42

These animes titles are huge. Why is that?They both are about pretty much the same thing. A rather normal non-otaku guy finds out that a smart, pretty girl is secretly into moe stuff. The only difference is that Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu has more ecchi while Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai has a more little sisters.

But why are thier titles so loooooong?

wolfangel87

Nogizaka Haruka no Himisu and Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai have girls that are secretly an otaku.  Both of these popular, pretty girls are trying to keep it a secret from everyone else.  Boys find out and it is a race to try and keep it a secret.

Korwin

No matter how unrealistic the whole concept is, two super popular and stylish girls being closet otaku decide to share their secret when found out by their brother/classmate. Sadly they cannot abandon their hobbies so the brother/classmate decides to help thus deepening their relationship. There are a lot of references regarding the otaku culture but I slightly advise you to make a difference between shows like Genshiken or Otaku no Video.

MrMetroid

Both have a storyline where the main female character is secretly an otaku and only the main male character is the only one that knows that secret

shinigamidono

In both serious the heroine has a secret that she is afraid will get her ostrasized by her friends and society (the same secret). In both cases a guy finds out about the secret by chance (in one the older brother and in the other a classmate) and decides to help the heroine keep the secret and they become closer because of it.

dinorex48

Both have female leads who are secretly otakus and after being found out by the male leads, work with them to protect the secret. Nogizaka Haruka has a little more romance to it while Oreimo is more of a pure comedy/slice of life.

cassiesheepgirl

Both of these series are about seemingly perfect girls who have a hidden secret - they're closet otaku! Both plae heavy focus on hiding their hobby and the negative reaction to otaku from the general public. If you liked one, try the other.

SwordsNKnives

Both shows are about someone very popular who is secretly an otaku. Both these people want to this hobby a secret and have someone to talk about anime and manga to.

I can assure you if you one of these you will surely like the other. Both Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai and Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu are recommended if you like to otaku culture style of anime.

Maso

In both series, the main character is an otaku, but doesn't want the others to know it. Both series are good, but I think Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is better than Oreimo.

snivets

Both shows are about a girl who likes anime and must hide it from the people around her, and a guy who accepts her for who she is.

Same storyline, both girls have a secret and a boy,who originally have no intrest in girls, find out about it. there is no way that thee secret may come out because that would hurt the girls reputation. unlike nogizaka haruko no himitsu, the usui kinda forces misaki to hang out with him while in nogizaka haruka no himitsu it just comes naturally. off course the characters are really diff both in- and outside but,even tough i dont know in what way kaichou wa maid sama will develop, i think of you like the storyline of this one,you surely like the other

chii

Both anime have girls that wish to keep their job or hobby a secret. Of course a boy finds out in both their situations and comedy occurs from there on. Check one out if you liked the other.

dannyly18

IF your feeling down or sad, watch any of these and i garrentte a happy smile at the end, they all involve a sort or "battle for love" scheme built around some teenage school life, with friends jokes, cutieness, and a whole lot of surprises, i espeically love the way the artist drew each individual charcter to match and suit there personailty, non the less garreenttte watch and you'll love! chow

wolfangel87

The girls have a secret they do not want anyone else to know in Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and Kaichou wa Maid-sama!  Of course the heroes in the story find out and have to try and help the girls keep their secrets.

Tempey

I just love this anime! Before I saw Kaichou wa Maid-sama, I watched Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and Himitsu Purezza. I also like the later, but Kaichou wa Maid-sama, is definetly better and I know if you liked this, you will LOVE this one. Both boys have to keep a secret for the girl and although the relationships are very different, they both warm your heart.

Cute high class girls who happen to be otaku? This is only one of the similarities between these two animes. Lots of anime references, lovey dovey moments, comedy and a main boy who is just swept up in all of this. If you liked Haruka's Secret be sure to check out Hayate the Combat Butler, they compliment eachother well.

Magemat

These two anime are similar in the way that they both are romantical comedies featuring a boy who is being forcefully dragged in the "otaku world" by a wealthy young girl. The humor is quite different in each series but you'll surely enjoy one if you liked the other.

JAhU

If you like the concept of an otaku oujo, you could give Hayate no Gotoku! a try. Not only it features a character like that, but it is also more fun than Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu when it comes to jokes.

Genshiken

Genshiken

Ever wanted to join an anime club but felt its geekiness would hurt your reputation? Sasahara feels your pain. Genshiken, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, is an organization of college otaku obsessed with anime, manga and video games. Their daily activities include holding impromptu cosplay photo shoots, braving the crowds and avoiding injury at doujinshi conventions, and tolerating harassment by Saki, a girl irked by her boyfriend's otaku-ness! It's a perfect match for Sasahara's interests, so why is it so difficult for him to join?

Both are great anime that deal with the otaku culture in a similar way. They both present many aspects of the otaku lifestyle as well as some of the major "otakuish" events like conventions at the tokyo big site or budokan idol live concerts mainly through both humor and romance.

ashman711

both series deal with the Otaku culture, where Nogizka Haruka is in anime and is very saccharine, Genshiken tries to portray itself in the real world with realistic characters found in the Otaku culture.

Itazura na Kiss

Itazura na Kiss

Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?

AkumaSama

Both of the anime are about high school life and how two people fall in love with each other and the obstacle they have to face to reach happiness. both series are funny and random like alot of funny fights, confessions and alot more so if you like Nogizaka haruka no himitsu you'd like  itazura na kiss.
