However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! 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?

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.

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.

Both OHSHC and K-On! are lighthearted series featuring high school clubs, and they both have plenty of comedic moments.

The characters are lovable in both series, and although there are differences between them (more of a romance element in Ouran than K-On!, different main character sexes), but they both have themes of friendship and school life.. and they're both super cute! ^.^

Ouran High School Host Club and Ghost Hunt.  They both have high school girls who hate Tamaki(OHSHC) or Naru (GH) because they are annoying, narcissits, and plain mean :P.  But later on they understand why. 

Romace/Comedy/Scary/ETC.,

They both are lovey dovey anime with a lot of silly comedy and somewhat horror/scary

Scary OHSHC
