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...

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

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

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

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!

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.

School Rumble

School Rumble

Tenma Tsukamoto is young, bright, and smitten with the school hottie Oji Karasuma. She's desperate for his attention, which is unfortunate considering he barely gives her the time of day! Throw Kenji Harima, the school delinquent with a crush on Tenma into the mix and you've got one twisted love triangle of unrequited proportions! Can love find the trio happiness before their attention-grabbing stunts end up hurting more than their egos?

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

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

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

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

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 :)

Both series have female protaganists who are good hearted. There is comedy in both, as well as a little romance. Both are very entertaining and gripped me. I watched both of them straight through.

chihinoke22

It may seem that they're on opposite sides, but it has some of the basics. A innocent girl starts a new life and gets sucked into something that seems not for her, but they still bare with it and stay the whole way through.

chuckylover911

Loving female main charectors find themselves sucked into something they believe is not right for them. Both main charectors had tough childhoods... Both Animes have alot of comedy and light Romance....

wolfangel87

The main female characters in both Angelic Layer and Ouran High School Host Club have the same type of ‘loving everyone’ attitude believeing the best in everyone and always fighting for what they believed in.  Angelic Layer has a little more action with the fighting of the robotic dolls but Ouran is just as comical and endearing.

Earl and Fairy

Earl and Fairy

Throughout the ages, fairy doctors served as liaisons between humans and fairies; but in the present time of the 19th century, fairies are nothing more than an old wives' tale. Nineteen-year-old Lydia Carlton is one of the only remaining fairy doctors and enjoys a quiet life in the countryside of England - that is, until the dashing Edgar, for mysterious reasons, whisks her away on a daring adventure. Said to be the descendent of the earl of the fairy nation, Edgar desires the noble sword of the merrow that serves as proof to his lineage. Though his motives and origins are questionable, Lydia now sets forth to help Edgar on his quest.

Both anime are shojo romance with a reverse harem, a Victorian setting and a narcissistic blond romantic interest. Hakushaku to Yōsei is not quite as comedic as Ouran though- more drama.

KiraRin

Girls - if you like the idea of a group of handsome bishounen sweeping you off your feet, you will be more than spoilt for choice with Ouran and Earl + Fairy. With romantic moments that will have you melting, the denial of the female protagonist only encouraging the beautiful boys even further.

If you like the reverse harem and very sexy guys, I highly recommend both of these to you.

Galadriel

both Hakushaku to Yousei and Ouran High are reverse harem shows (shoujo romance), both of them are set in a modern, Victorian setting. Also both of them are pretty nice, heartwarming romances, though Ouran High has a way more developed comedy aspect than Hakushaku to Yousei. So if you liked one of this shows be sure to check the other one as well.

wolfangel87

With shoujo romance and a little reverse harem Earl and Fairy and Ouran High School Host Club fit hand in hand. The Victorian type setting plays a key role in unveiling the back drop of the characters budding romance, while the heroines of these delightful tales try to give a new type of relationship a try.

Hetalia: Axis Powers

Hetalia: Axis Powers and Ouran High School Host Club are really funny parody anime (Hetalia parodies historical events, while Ouran pokes fun of tropes common in shoujo anime). Each's claim to fame comes from their casts, which are made up almost exclusively of bishounen (so... many... bishounen...). Some of the (bordering on shounen-ai) situations the gaggle of bishounen get into are sure to please any fangirl. Or anyone who enjoyed either.

RisikaFox

Ouran High School Host Club and Hetalia: Axis Powers both feature a varied cast of beautiful, intriguing male characters who seem to have nothing better to do most days than fool around. This usually leads to amusing situations and ridiculous banter, although they both have their serious moments as well. Fans of one will probably like the other.

hamletsmage

Bishounens... everywhere... and "this close to shounen-ai" situations for humorous purposes. The over-the-top antics in both anime make for some hilarious moments. The characters' interactions are also very similar. While the plots are very different, the plot is usually lost due to the cast's antics.

WolfWithinMe

Both Oran and Hetalia have light characters and a light story line. They both include an array of beautiful characters that can be extremely random and comical.I would highly recommend both animes.
