When it comes to Okane ga Nai, romance and comedy seems to go hand in hand. These awkward situations can also be seen in a similar series known as Junjou Romantica. Based on three different yaoi couples and their struggles...In more ways then one.
If you liked Okane, then you'll surely enjoy this series as well. ^^
Both junjou romantica as okane ga nai go about a young boy and an older men that have a relationship. The humour and problems are very similair in both series. It's also nice to see the young boys do everything to avoid the older men, claiming they don't like them.
If seeing a young boy put into a questionable situation by an older man, and then seduced is your kind of thing, then I can highly recommend both of these shows to you. Blurring the line between shounen-ai and yaoi, there is a lot more sexual implication in both Junjou and Okane.
Fans of the more hardcore manlove will definitely revel and love both of these shows.
In both, a man rapes a boy that had sort of helped him out, and the boy ends up sort of in falling for him. Both of the ukes are nice younger boys and the semes are in a position of power (or getting ready to inherit one)
