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...
Kazuki Shikimori is a 17-year old junior studying at Aoi Academy, an elite school for the magically gifted. However, unlike enrollment to the school would suggest, his magical prowess is below-average. In fact, he can only use magic eight times in his life, or he will die. But not all is lost: Kazuki's family tree includes the latent genetic material for magical greatness. After that information leaks out, Kazuki suddenly becomes the most popular male student in the school, and girls from powerful magician families begin chasing him to get his genes.
Saio Private High School has a long tradition of quality education. However, like many other schools its enrollment and traditions are failing. School is no longer a necessity in the path to quality employment and for that reason, many teenagers are choosing to skip it entirely; this isn’t the case with the newly-transferred Manabi. She may be a whirlwind of humor and vision with her motto of “go straight forward”, but Manabi has the drive to bring the students of this small school both a new understanding of its purpose, and possibly a new joy in life.
Manabi and Otome are clearly not in the same genre. However, they have a rather similar plotline - the protagonists of both anime become the leaders of their respective schools, and the show follows them as they strive to make it a better place. This may seem like an awfully random thing to link them for, but it really does cause them to have a similar sort of feel to them. If you liked this aspect of one of these series, don't be afraid to check out the other.

Tired of searching for a nice and good shoujo-ai anime? Look no more, Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru has a nice shoujo-ai aspect and also some comedy given by the gender-bender tag and Sasameki Koto has a warm shoujo-ai aspect but is more concentrated on romance and both animes have a school life aspect.My guess is that if you like one of them you will definitely like the other one as well.
