Princess Princess

Princess Princess

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...

If you liked Ouran, you'd like Princess Princess because it's also a cute show set in a high school. It's about the trials that three students go through together, and like Ouran, it also features cross-dressing students at an all-boys school. It's a funny show, and I loved it.

While Princess Princess has guys dressing up as girls, Ouran High School Host Club has a girl dressing up as a guy. Both have the same type of humor, and both have lively characters. If one makes you laugh then so will the other.

Nomadichu Nomadichu says...

both these animes are high-school life with a twist, where ouran high school host club is a wealthy school offering services for the females of the school, where haruhi gets sucked into crossdressing to pay off a debt, Princess Princess is about three crossdressing straight male students who get bribed with school privalages if they cheer on the male students because there are no girls around. Both animes are hilarious and i thought very much alike.

Clohei Clohei says...

If you like your shojo with a little cross-dressing, Princess Princess is for you! Like Ouran High School Host Club, The humor is alike in many ways. Also the characters in Princess Princess are paid to play the role of the other gender, almost exactly like Haruhi. You'll laugh until your stomach hurts.

LLORAtheLLAMA LLORAtheLLAMA says...

Both of these shows have very lively characters with each a unique personality. There's also some crossdressing involved! A girl as a guy in Ouran High School and boys as girls in Princess Princess.

Eveehime2 Eveehime2 says...

They are both very funny and have good character development. :D Right after watching Ouran I watched Princess Princess and was amazed at the similar comedy styles. 

NimirRa NimirRa says...

If high school really were like this... at least things would have been a bit more interesting eh?

The schools depicted in these two shows play a major role in the plot. Or at least the 'unique' programs they each have do. If you found the craziness of one of these to be hilarious then the other will have you in stitches as well.

They both have prestigious schools. They are both somewhat reverse harem also. Each have an element of romance, comedy, and school life.

Buni Buni says...

Both of the female leads are granted permission to go to a top notch school coming from a one parent home and through an odd cercumstance winds up befriending the arguably top six boys in the school. The oblivousness to the flirting from the boys is also the same.

cahbayb cahbayb says...

Both are a reverseharem at a private school. Seriously these  two are very alike. If OHSHC was focused on idols and music   it would be called UtaPri. 

dandere dandere says...

Both are harem anime, which means many of the male characters in this anime are in love with the main female character. All characters in both anime are at a very special high school.

mahaaamiho mahaaamiho says...

they both have the same feeling to them...

the main girl being loved by many guys who are all like princes and every thing 

anyway they are both really fun to watch

Brightstone Brightstone says...

Both have the main girl enter highschool and the group of however-so-many guys go after her, obvious or not. All of the guys have diffrent personalitys and know eachother. In the end their all friends, but the girl ends up with one of them.

For those who like the comedy/parody genre, School Rumble and Ouran High School Host Club will definitely please you. Good animation and interesting characters mixed together with a fun plot.

irutavias irutavias says...

Both anime have female protagonists in similar 'school' settings. Ouran and School Rumble are full of humour. School Rumble features simple plots and tones of puns and sarcastic notes.

Overall, Ouran and School Rumble will go well together 

VipQ VipQ says...

If you liked watching Ouran High School, and like comedy/school life anime, you might also like School Rumble.  The episode style is similar, with a different story for each episode. Also the animation is so good in both anime. School Rumble will be the best selection to watch next, I think.

LY047 LY047 says...

Ouran High School Host Club and School Rumble share a high school setting. Both are comedies with romance with thrown into the mix. If you like one you shouldn't pass up an opportunity to watch the other.

pacord1 pacord1 says...

These two just complement each other. The classic school parody along with the comedic relief is key two both School Rumble and Ouran Highschool Host Club. Even though I preferred Ouran more, I still enjoyed very much the anime :)

Wolfco Wolfco says...

Ouran is the highly humorous tale of students at a very unusual school that somehow all end up in the same club.  Best Student Council could also be described in that exact fashion at first glance.  And yet the plots of these two shows are remarkably dissimilar.  In fact, it might seem like these two series aren't comparable, but despite the truly fundamental differences between the two main leads there is a shared mix of humor and seriousness.  If you examine these two series you will find that they are both the same and not the same at all, but regardless of that confusion you'll find that you enjoy Best Student Council if you rather enjoyed Ouran High School Host Club.  

SomeoneElse SomeoneElse says...

In both Ouran High School Host Club, and Gokujo Seitokai, we see the quintessential tale of the poor girl who gets taken in by a group of "higher class" schoolmates only to have her outshine them all with her natural inner beauty. and of course this is all made possible through a series of absurd events that have little or nothing to do with the actual school in attendance.

holyzac holyzac says...

Oh yes! If you like any one of these animes you have to watch the other. Both animes are so comical you would laugh when you watch them. Schools with councils, clubs almost the same, unity between friends overcoming daily obstacles thats what these both animes are about and dont forget to laugh!

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

They're both comedies that take place in a school setting, though the focus is on extracurricular activities, not academic endeavours. The protagonist in both series is a poor girl who gets dragged into a group (host club and student council, respetively) with enourmous amounts of infiuence, funds and opportunities for comedic escapades. Loads of varied characters are to be found in either one as well. If you liked either one you should consider watching the other series.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Ouran High School Host Club and Best Student council fit each other perfectly.  Each series revolve around the poor female protagonist getting thrown into an upper end school setting.  They precede to each join a club/council as the series progress through the humor events that befall them.

Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru

Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru

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...

tetra tetra says...

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.

EternalSnow EternalSnow says...

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. :)

Cetonis Cetonis says...

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.

Magicalflyingcow Magicalflyingcow says...

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!

HanaCHaN02 HanaCHaN02 says...

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.
