Vampire Knight

Vampire Knight

Cross Academy is a school with a difference: in a unique and experimental setup designed by the headmaster, it has a Day Class consisting of ordinary humans and a Night Class filled with vampires. Yuki Cross and her friend Zero Kiryu are school prefects whose job it is to make sure the secret of the Night Class is always safe; they patrol the school grounds at night and supervise the switchover of classes at dawn and dusk to prevent any 'accidents' from happening. While Zero is suspicious of vampires and hates the idea of sharing the same space as them, Yuki admires the Night Class for their beauty and sophistication; she is especially intrigued by their charming leader, Kaname, because he once saved her life. However, as Yuki quickly learns, not all vampires are amiable like the Night Class, and as terrible events unfold, Yuki must ask herself whether in a world where vampires are the hunters and humans are the prey, peaceful coexistence can really be achieved.

Both Anime's have a bunch of hot guys running around.

Its like girl fan service really.

If you like one you'd most likely like the other

Ouran High School Host Club and Vampire Knight are both fun animes that take place in a different kind of high school setting.  Rather than regular run-of-the-mills high school, these animes aim to add a little bit of spice to their setting - whether it be through super hot vampire students or super hot host club students.  If you liked one, be sure to check out the other.

Despite their different story lines, the ouline is similar including the self discovery of the female lead and her romantic life. Both also contain comedy, which wasn't expected in Vampire Knight

Both anime are set in a high school with a twist. The storylines are different but the characters are similar and the humour is brilliant.

Kiss Him, Not Me

Kiss Him, Not Me

Kae Serinuma is what you'd call a "fujoshi." When she sees boys getting along with each other, she loves to indulge in wild fantasies! One day her favorite anime character dies and the shock causes her to lose a ton of weight. Then four hot guys at school ask her out, but that isn't exciting to her at all — she'd rather see them date each other!

If you like OHSHC or Kiss Him Not Me, you're sure to like the other! Both animes are reverse harems with an interesting female lead with an actual personality(something that isn't common in most reverse harems) with great comedy and quirky characters. Granted, in OHSHC the male characters are the more unusual characters, whereas it is the opposite in kiss him not me, with the male characters seeming normal in comparison to the main character. Enjoy!

If you liked the reverse harem, almost BL scenes, the cosplay, the school life, and off-the-wall characters... Well, you're in for a treat. One takes place in an elite academy, the other stars an otaku... Either way, worlds are about to collide in these matching reverse harems. Like one, try the other. 

AcchanXD AcchanXD says...

It is both about a girl who gets herself dragged into a reversed harem. In both anime's there is boy x boy love. both are funny in their own way!

jameswarrensaid jameswarrensaid says...

Though the stories and animation style are different, both of these animes feature reverse harems, dynamic female protagonists, and cute boys willing to do whatever it takes to win her love! 

If you're interested in funny, slice-of-life anime that's lighthearted and sweet, OHSHC and Kiss Him Not Me are the pinnacle of the genre.

Reverse harem with great characters loving that one female who has has a big heart. Both are really funny as well.

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 chihinoke22 says...

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 chuckylover911 says...

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 wolfangel87 says...

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 KiraRin says...

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 Galadriel says...

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 wolfangel87 says...

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.

Both series have a theme of "low class but cheerful girl" entering rotten world of rich/talented and saving every1 around her without even realizing that.

Nymn Nymn says...

Although this recommendation is more apt towards the manga, which is definitely deeper and explores more content, is can still apply to the anime. Both, at first glance seem to mostly potray a comic and cutesy type shoujo with some sweet moments and romance here and there. It's funny but it's the humour that actually shades off just how deep, dark and complicated some relationships, characters and plots actually are. They both will always remain among my top 5 favourite series.

jrc2772 jrc2772 says...

Gakuen Alice is not only cute, but very creative. Its a bit cliche but I loved watching all episodes and it even made me want to watch more, sadly there is only one season but the manga is completed so give it a read as well ;)
