Although these two shows are part of different genres, they both have a solid cast of characters and spend a lot of time actually parodying the genres they're a part of. They take themselves juuust enough seriously to make you care about the characters and plots, but they're never above cracking a joke or poking at the fourth wall to show how silly their genres can be at times. If you enjoy comedy and fun characters, there's a good chance you'll enjoy these shows.

Itazura na Kiss

Itazura na Kiss

Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?

Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?

Love Hina is a wonderous Romantic Harem anime that seems pretty down to earth (except a few robot turtles and antics). The main characters are very relatible and the story is simply fantastic. 

CLAMP School Detectives

CLAMP School Detectives

CLAMP School is not just a school - it's a self-contained city. Housing 10,000 students from Kindergarten to Graduate level, it facilitates education for anyone talented, regardless of wealth. At the elementary level, three students lead the student council: Nokoru, the youngest son of the company that built the school; Suoh Takamura, the cool-headed secretary; and Akira, both a talented cook and the council's treasurer. Well-liked and resourceful, the trio is able to help the fairest of damsels with ease. And thus, after saving a sad old woman, Nokoru decides to create the CLAMP School Detective Agency; their goal, to help out any maiden in distress!

Clamp School Detectives is sort of like what Ouran High School Host Club would be if the entirety of the Host Club was filled with 10 year old boys ... who happen to be extremely gentlemanly and super adorable.

Ouran HSHC is much more tongue-in-cheek than Clamp School Detectives, with its episodes focusing mainly on character development and comedic situations. On the other hand, Clamp School Detectives follows a much more episodic format, focusing mainly on solving the problems of (oftentimes older) women. Clamp School Detectives also features many tie-ins with other Clamp characters.

Either way, if you want another show with male characters in a club whose sole purpose is to please and solve the problems of women, I recommend either Ouran HSHC or Clamp School Detectives.

To survive, the Demon King must now work a part-time job at a fast-food joint and attempt to adapt to modern society the best the pair can as Japanese citizens, all while scheming to rule over the country in the process.

Funny and Great Characters. You will enjoy both shows. Ouran High School is based on high school and doesn't have any actions but Hataraku Maou-sama does.
