There’s no denying that Mizuho is beautiful. Normally that might be a bit of a disadvantage seeing as he is an average sort of boy who enjoys sports and games. However, his beloved grandfather has just passed away, and the will includes a strange request; his grandfather wants him to become closer to his mother's memory by attending the same all-girls academy she did for a semester. Obviously he can't hide his gender from the teachers of the school; so he will need their approval, but he also can't expose his gender in front of his fellow students. With the help of his child-hood friend Mariya, his own natural beauty, and just a little bit of luck, Mariya may just be able to fool his fellow students! Considering the turn of events, there may be more to his grandfather's dying request than meets the eye...
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...
If you like Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, you are likely to like Ouran High School Host Club because they both have the same appeal to your comedic senses.
It is likely you will enjoy Ouran if you enjoyed Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru because they each have that almost harem feel that makes them part drama part comedy. Although the underlying complexities of Ouran are deeper, it has at its heart the same issues. What role do your roots, your family members, play in making you? How do you decide on the paths you should travel in life? These are two series that take a humorous look at the daily choices of teenage life.
Ouran High School is Otome wa, but totally opposite. Instead of being about a boy crossdressing as a cute girl and his cute girl-friends, it is about a girl crossdressing as a boy and her cute boy-friends.
Both are somewhat fanservice-y with a lot of humor and a somber foundation.
Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru is about a new student who is pretending to be a girl, while Ouran High School Host Club is about a new student who pretends to be a boy. Both anime deal with keeping their identities a secret, and both will make you laugh. They are very similar, in an opposite way. :)
Disregarding the obvious crossdressing point, both Ouran and Otome are series that seem like generic harem comedy fare but are in fact quite different. While they do have their comedy aspects, these shows take a serious look at each of their characters and the main lead's efforts to help them through their troubles. They also limit the romantic interests to one or two, as opposed to the full swarm one might expect. And, as might be expected, they both revolve around themes regarding the insignificance of gender roles and stereotypes. Despite the fact that each is clearly aimed at one gender, they aren't really inaccessible to the other. If you found one of these enjoyable, the other may very well be worth a look.
Both Ouran High School Host Club and Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru are about a person who acts like the opposite gender and enjoys an exciting life at school with their many friends. In almost every episode of these two series there is some sort of twist. Not only are these two series interesting and cute but they are also hilarious. If you're looking for a laugh then check these out!
Both series are hillarious, but sweet in their own way. They're both about cross dressing too ^_^. Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru (try saying that 5 times fast) is about a boy who dresses like a girl to go to an all girl's school. Ouran High Host Club is about a girl going to a rich kid school and when she breaks an expensive vase she has to dress like a guy and work in the host club to pay for it. Both have funny moments but every now and then put in something sad or something sweet/cute. Both series are funny, cute, and adorable and if you enjoyed one, then you'll probably enjoy the other.
It’s never easy being a transfer student, especially when transferring in the middle of the year. Certain schools have their own traditions and ways of doing things – something Kouno Tooru discovers when the student council of the Fujimori high school insists that he dress like a girl! Along with two other boys chosen for their remarkable beauty, Kouno is given the task of brightening up the dull days of an all-boys high school. The rewards offered by the student council are great, but the life of a “Princess” turns out to be more work than Kouno had bargained for...
Both these anime are in the same genre. Princess Princess does have more males than Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, but they are both about a nice boy who has to dress up like a girl. Princess Princess has a little yaoi in it, but nothing serious. I believe if you like one then you should like the other with no issue.
This is a 'well DUH' rec. There are rather few anime where the main plot is that of a male character crossdressing in a school environment; the two I have found so far is Princess Princess and Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru. So if you (like me) wanted to see cute boys crossdress now you know the next anime to watch.
Cross-dressing is always hilarious, especially when its in a boy forced into it. In princess princess you'll find 3 boys dressing as girls to go along with tradition and in Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru you find kind-hearted Mizuhu dressing as a girl in-order to fulfill his grandfather's dying wish. Though the reasons are different the results are the same... many skirt wearing ackward moments.
There is always hilarious events coming along with cross-dressing, especially when boys cross-dress! In both series there are these handsome boys, who are forced to cross-dress either because of the long traditions of the school, or because of their grandfather's will. In either way, there are deffinitely hilarious moment and unexpected situations - for one thing, how come Mizuho doesn't like being in an all-girls school when he's a boy? Despite all the similarities, while Kouno and Yuujiro from Princess Princess want to escape from being mistaken for girls, Mizuho from Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru absolutely doesn't want to be discovered, afraid of the consequences.
Well then, have fun watching! =]
If you like pretty guys crossdressing then these are the animes for you. Both have diffrent plots yet they have thier similarities.
Each guy has his reasons for crossdressing, (Well maybe not each guy aka Mikoto) from Mizuhu's grandfather's dying wish to being paid to be a princess. From hilarious events to serious conflicts, if you liked one you would love the other.
Both Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru and Princess princess centre around male students in high school that end up dressing as women. Both series also share a similar style of humour. If you liked these aspects of one you may like the other.
On Astraea Hill stand 3 prestigious female-only academies known as St. Miatre, Spica, and LeRim; and though the schools are separate, they share a single campus and dormitory. Nagisa Aoi is a 10th grader who has decided to transfer to St. Miatre's Girls' Academy. Though her transition has been smooth so far, while exploring the campus Aoi inadvertently falls down a hill, sees the beautiful Shimuza, and promptly (not to mention embarrassingly) faints. Nagisa continues to see Shimuza out and about, but soon discovers that she is the "Etoile" -- a well respected girl within all of the schools. With Shizuma taking a liking to the new transfer student Nagisa, secrets of Shizuma's past will unravel over the coming school year.
In both SP and Otome the setting is the same: an all girls' school. Both shows have the basic same theme as well: girls falling for girls.
Both Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru and Strawberry Panic is about the protagonist who is a transfer student to an all girls school and her/his new life there. In both series the protagonist early gets the higlights directed towards him/her for various reasons.
Though there is alot of differences of the series I am very sure that anyone who loved watching either Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru or Strawberry Panic will love the other series. Both series with it's own different backgrounds and turns makes them both uniqe.
I recomend anyone who loved Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru or Strawberry Panic to watch the other series couse I guarantee you will love it.
Otome wa Boku Ni Koishiteru and Strawberry Panic are shoujo anime with a slice of yuri. In both anime, the protagonist is a transfer student to a prestigious academy who makes quite the impression to the other students. Both have to do with girl's love and issues such as friendship, bitter memories and relationships.
If you have watched one of them, I suggest you watch the other one as well.
There are beautiful girls all around! And no wonder - the all-girls academies are paradise for your heart! But to be a transfer student is not so easy. You have to get to know everything and everyone. That's what happens in both Strawberry Panic and Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru. The both series are considered shoujo-ai (although I don't quite agree), so the fans of the genre might be in ecstasies! Another thing in common is that the main characters have someone close with whom they can share all their worries and insecurities. There are many difficulties to overcome, but finally both Nagisa and Mizuho find their place despite all of the previous misunderstandings and confusion.
Girl loves Girl! Well for the most part. Strawberry Panic and Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru are both extremly beautifully drawn shows with lucious detail! Even though Otome technically involves a cross dressing boy its still extremly similar to Stawberry. Even the school girl uniforms are similar! If you couldn't get enough of one see the other, both will leave you with a happy can-do feeling!
If you liked Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, you might also like Strawberry Panic because they both feature very similar all-girl school environments. This causes the subplots to be alike as well, such as the Elder/Etoile situation.
Hibiki is unemployed, unmotivated, and out of luck. But it seems his luck just might change: a nearby school is looking for qualified instructors, but there's a catch.. females only! With rent looming around the corner and the landlord threatening to cook the dog if you don't pay up, what's a guy to do? Become a woman, of course. Watch Hibiki as he blunders his way through embarassing situations, under the close scrutiny of the headmaster's gaze and his female students' admiration.
A man disguised as a woman, in an all-female school environment, with such skill that he appears to be not only female but also beautiful. Not a common anime plot, but still far from rare.
Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru and I My Me! Strawberry Eggs both have male characters cross dressing in girls' schools, and the focus of all attention. The two stories take a slightly different tack on the consequences of such cross dressing, but the underlying humour and romance are similar.
The main characters in I My Me and Otome wa are in the same predicament. While trying to fake being women they have to avoid detection, deal with admiring girls and they are both in a school environment. I think that the similarities end there and they diversify into individual anime that both are very enjoyable.
Both are school anime with a genderbender twist!
Light hearted gender bender. Cross dressing with a healthy dose of forbbiden love. Both are really short and sweet and definatly worth the effort! Neither have overly elaborate plots which may leave the viewer wanting but more than make-up for any short commings in the kawaii factor!
Kanako Miyamae hates boys so much that she breaks out into hives after any physical contact with them. So when she is able to transfer to the Ame no Kisaki Girl’s school, Kanako is overjoyed that she can now search for her fated yuri partner. When she arrives, Kanako meets Shidou Mariya, a beautiful young girl who is exactly her type... except that Mariya is really a sarcastic and sadistic young boy who is masquerading as a girl! With no intention of being expelled from school, Mariya threatens Kanako into keeping his secret, and decides to guard her twenty-four hours a day to ensure that she does. Now Kanako must share a room with Mariya who is gleefully making her life a misery while using his ‘feminine’ charms to stop her protesting. Throw into the mix Ryuuken, the most popular girl in school who has vowed to protect her; and Kiri - who claims they are dating to prevent her from being bullied - and it seems as if Kanako’s dream of all-girl school life will be nothing like she imagined!
Though the perspectives are different, but both contain the cross dressing w/yuri theme. The main characters in each series attend the academy of their parent(s) to either uncover/relive the past or rectify a wrong. The tone is much more comedic in Maria Holic than Koishiteru--with a harem-like development and love triangles.
Both Maria Holic and Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru have central male characters in high school that disguise themselves as women. Both also have a good amount of comedy in them. If you like the antics portrayed in one of these series then it may be worth checking out the other.
If you liked this but disliked that Mizuho wasn't... how might you say... Sadistic? Evil?. Well then, Maria Holic is for you.
