Everyone around Kousaka seems to adore cats, but due to his allergies the teen can’t stand them. So when he wakes up one day and can hear what every feline is saying, Kousaka is annoyed to say the least. His new “gift,” it seems, is the result of accidentally breaking an enshrined statue of a cat; and what’s worse, Kousaka must atone for his sin and appease the vengeful spirit by aiding one hundred kitties-in-distress, or become a furry feline himself! Now, amidst helping various cats with mundane and trivial issues, Kousaka must try to dispel the jinx and attempt to salvage his self-respect – not to mention his love life - along the way.
Having lived in the same orphanage as children, Takumi Tsuzuki and Fumino Serizawa grew up together and remain fast friends. Now living and working at a bakery, Takumi does his best to prevent catastrophe, particularly when the clumsy Otome is in the kitchen! He attends school with Fumino and is still the only person capable of reading through her baffling habit of hiding her emotions by saying exactly the opposite to what she means. However, the arrival on the scene of enigmatic catgirl Nozomi may force Fumino to be more honest with her feelings than she is used to - or perhaps even able to. This, along with a host of crazy friends and associates such as the stuck-up Chise and the otaku Ieyasu, ensures that there is rarely a dull moment in their lives!
Nyan Koi! and Mayoi Neko Overrun! share the same crazy neko-nyaaa~ feeling, they make you wanna repeat 'Nya~' again and again, even more - they make you see cats everywhere. Both are shounen romance comedies, they made by the same studio - that's an important fact too. Oh, and don't forget about tsundere characters! ^^
Both have the protagonist set as a rather timid wishy-washy character with a ddep heart who is surrounded by characters who love cats. The only area the two differ in is the fact Nyan Koi's protagonist Junpei is allergic to cats which causes him various problems whilst Takumi loves cats.
Both are cat-based anime. These two are essentially romantic comedy harems but still hold their own when speaking about the romance and comedy departments separately. If you like yourself some nekos, dash to the other awaiting you to pick up.
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...
Do you like sarcastic humor concentrated on one plagued individual? A lot of fluff? Series that don't take themselves too seriously? Do you possibly like pointless but funny romances going absolutely nowhere?
Then look no further, for these series have it both. Indeed, in my opinion Ouran is the strongest of the two in delivering merciless assaults on your facial muscles, but I still felt the similarity all down to my gut while I was laughing :-D (ouch)! If you've seen one then by all means check out the other.
Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club and Junpei from Nyan Koi! both break something extremely important in the first episode and end up indebted to someone they'd rather not associate with. Mix in some comedy and awkward situations, and things get fun!
Ouran is the reverse-harem version of Nyan Koi!. When the main character breaks a valuable object, they find themselves suddenly hurled into a world of humorous antics and gags at their expense. Both protagonists must help others to pay off their debt, while fending off some rather hilarious attempts at relationships.
Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?
I don't know why, but everything in Nyan Koi! reminds me of ToraDora! and vice versa.
Pretty similar art, very similar characters, and even cats are drawn similarly (well, there's only one cat in ToraDora! - Palmtop Tiger, but anyway).
So If you like comedies with a little bit of romance and adventures - you should try them both!
Great animes with ALOT of funny scenes featuring the main character being beaten up or made fun off. Great laughs guaranteed.
I followed the already existing recommendations between these two and it worked out great.
The connection would be well not sure about this but you could say character conflict is a bit simular and they are both able to put your laugh in action.
Ooh and in Toradora! the settings are a bit more mature compared to Nyan Koi! Well this one is really hard to explain sorry. :P
One afternoon on her way home from school, Haru saves a cat from getting run over by a truck and promptly gets the shock of her life when it stands on its hind legs to thank her. That night, she is greeted by a parade of felines who inform Haru that her earlier heroics saved the prince of the Cat Kingdom. Haru suddenly finds herself inundated with gifts of mice and catnip as means of thanks, culminating in the announcement that she will be taken to their kingdom to marry the prince. With no desire to marry Prince Lune, Haru turns to The Baron and Muta from the Cat Bureau for help, but unable to stop them, Haru is swept away by a horde of cats. Can Haru prevent this marriage of inconvenience and return home before she becomes a cat herself?
Though Nyan Koi is far more comedic, both that and Cat Returns both centre around our furry feline friends. In both anime, the protagonists interact with cats and face the threat of becoming a cat themselves. If you enjoyed the nature of one, or if you just like kitties, then you may like the other.
Nyan Koi and The Cat Returns have similar plots and... ALL ABOUT CATS!!!! If you want to watch The Cat Retuns is kindof like a seqil to Whisper Of The Heart (My FAV. movie of ALL TIME!!!) so I would reccomend watching that first.
The timid, virginal Kouta is a new student at Kunpo High School; and while others in his situation might be a wallflower forever, Kouta has no such luck – he has attracted the attention of the busty Chizuru, who happens to be a fox deity! However, Kouta’s misfortunes don’t stop there; he’s also pursued by Nozomu, a wolf deity. Between being molested, propositioned, having his face shoved between mammoth breasts or witnessing endless panty shots, Kouta must also attempt to maintain his studies – even though all Chizuru and Nozomu want is to be the one to deflower him first!
both series deals with animal deities, both are harem romance comedy, both are ecchi, though kanokon sometimes pushes it to borderline hentai. if you like one there's a big chance you might like the other.
I agree that, in similarity, Nyan Koi! and Kanokon are fairly parallel with each other. I admit that Nyan Koi! is a fair bit more comedic than Kanokon, and Kousaka is a much more enjoyable protagonist than Kouta; but we all know what's really great about these series: the girls.
Here is where Kanokon really delivers. Its got sex appeal in spades, where Nyan Koi! keeps it in the shadows...literally. Ahh, can't wait for those DVDs. Give these shows a chance and they will be sure to capture your attention.
