Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan

Disguised as a man, Chizuru Yukimura has come to Kyoto searching for her missing father, a doctor who developed a magical elixir that increases the drinker's speed, strength and healing abilities. Instead of her father, however, she stumbles across a battle between the Shinsengumi and the Furies, evil vampire-like creatures of their own making.

There are a whole group of boys around the cross-dressing female lead in both of these series and there is a variety of personalties among the group. Also, both lead girls seem similar to me, in that they are neither a tom-boy nor very feminine, not strong but not the weak, crying type.

Shiraiyuki Shiraiyuki says...

The similarities between Hakuouki and Ouran are not in plot.I think they're similar in the characters: a bunch of handsome, overprotective, guys and female cross-dresser.

In short, if you like/liked one you'll probably like the other.

thy're both really fun romantic comidies if you enjoyed one im sure ill enjoy the other.the chartcers are at times really wacky and the main charticers of these two shows are alot alike.

Both main characters are great, but what I liked more about both animes is the rivalry between the boys and the rivalry between the DearS. It is very funny and entertaining. It has a sad backround for the characters which I also like because it gives the more depth. 

Kimi to Boku.

Kimi to Boku.

Shun, Kaname, and the twins Yuuki and Yuuta have known each other since they were young children and are now entering their second year at Homare High School. However, despite having been friends for many years, their life together isn’t always smooth sailing. And with the sarcastic and indifferent twins constantly teasing or irritating the serious Kaname, it's left up to the optimistic and kind Shun to keep the peace. But no matter their differences, the four boys stick together through everything, whether they’re simply reminiscing about their days in kindergarten, attempting to get Yuuki interested in a school club, or trying to stop the source of Shun's recent run of bad luck.

Kimi to Boku and Ouran High School Host Club are both comedy series about a group of high school boys and the girl that joins their group of friends. Though they don't seem like the most likely of friends at first, the characters in both series stick by each other and make their unique friendships work. Kimi to Boku is more laid-back than Ouran, and the humor is rather dry. Ouran, however, is very energetic with a broader humor, and focuses more on the girl as the main character rather than the boys like Kimi to Boku does.

They both have a group of high school guys and one girl. It's about there adventures together I presume.

Otome Youkai Zakuro

Otome Youkai Zakuro

In order to bridge the gap between humans and youkai, The Ministry of Spirit Affairs was formed. Military man Kei Agemaki is assigned to the new unit and seems to be the ideal candidate. He’s charming, polite, and a complete gentleman, but there’s just one problem: he’s absolutely terrified of spirits! When he arrives at the new headquarters, Agemaki is partnered up with a cute, yet brash, youkai named Zakuro. Now the unlikely pair must work together to solve the region’s spirit-related problems to help improve relations between humans and youkai, and maybe help Agemaki overcome his crippling fear while they’re at it.

neutrino neutrino says...

Both feature a cast of characters that are very similar to each other--the hot/cold main character and male lead, the stoic, tall male, and the cutesy, young-looking male (with respective partners).  If you like anime with these types of characters and the antics that happen because of their personalities, either are a good choice.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

Otome Youkai Zakuro and Ouran are both romantic comedies. Overall though, Ouran has more comedy and OYZ has more romance. Still, they share the subplot of understanding different cultures (be it of spirits or commoners) and the two have similar characters. Such as a driven female lead with clear goals in her live, which aren't romance, and a male lead who is silly, but kind, and many more.

Sket Dance

Sket Dance

At the Kaimei Academy three classmates, “Bossun” Yusuke, “Onihime” Himeko and “Switch” Kazuyoshi have established their own club: the Academy Activity Support Club. Known as Sket-Dan for short, the trio accept any odd jobs that come their way in the name of maintaining a peaceful life for the students of the academy. Whether identifying a graffiti artist, fixing the school gym shed or helping a new student fend off his childhood bullies, no task is too big and no job too small for the Sket-Dan.

Both these animes focus around strong bonds of friendship in one form or another. While Host Club focuses on romance and a reverse harem, Sket Dances's primary focus is episodic comedy.

You could be forgiven for thinking that initially they are merely two types of light hearted comedy. However while they both provide some of the best laughs I've had watching anime, the serious moments in regards to back stories are moments that parallel each other in their seriousness, and pure joy you feel at the overcoming of them.

Essentially, If you find yourself a fan of one, stick with the other and find it a great use of your time.

Sket Dance and Ouran both are very funny comedys, and theyre both my favorites. The main characters always have some sort of past and sometimes not so good. I think these both make you go 'dawwww' cuz there are cute moments and happy ones too! Ehh i would descibe both like Comedy and haertwarming and little romance. :)
