Peach Girl

Peach Girl

Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!

Both Peach Girl and Ouran deal with a high school-type relationship. There is also a love triangle in each of them, although Peach Girl seems more focused on which guy she will choose, while in Ouran the heroine does not even know that the guys like her.

These are quite similar, yet they are both amazing and very entertaining. I reccommend you watch them both!

Although Peach Girl is a lot more dramatic, it is still similar. If you are looking for just comedy and can't stand the drama, do not watch Peach Girl. If you are looking for drama, Ouran does not almost any. I liked them both because it shared the classic highschool scenario with romance. I still recommend it because I enjoyed them both. I could deal with the drama and I just love comedies like Ouran. 

He is My Master

He is My Master

Runaway sisters Izumi and Mitsuki have a problem. They've got no place to go! That is, until Yoshitaka Nakabayashi, a teenage orphan rich beyond their wildest dreams, offers them jobs as maids. It seems like a dream come true... for all of a few minutes. From spy cameras in the sauna to fetish wear as uniforms, Yoshitaka will stop at nothing to gratify his own perversities, with or without the girls' consent. Can the girls stave off his advances with the help of their hyperactive pet alligator, or will they end up doing service a lot more personal than just cleaning house?

Both have a similar basis in that the main character is poor and breaks something valuable, so he/she spends the rest of the series attempting to make up for this. Both series have their charms - HiMM has Mitsuki's fantastic array of challenges, whereas Ouran has a great cast of characters. While the story is lacking in both, the comedy and insane energy of the two series make them worth watching.

caitlin caitlin says...

Both Ouran High School Host Club and He is my Master have a similar underlying plot, of a 'commoner' (or two, in HimM's case) falling in with the rich, breaking something (or many things) valuable, and earning a debt that they must serve off by serving the rich person/people in some way. Both also have a similar vein of comedy, and characters that joke about their starring in a 'love comedy'. If you liked one, I'm sure you'd like the other.

Beautiful young girl forced to work for money by a high school boy (or boys as it were) for less than scrupulous motives.... Sounds like a great anime to me!! Master and Host Club are two of the funniest animes I've ever seen! Love the humor and acctually have good life lessons inbetween all the ecchi! Both are definatly worth your time!

Zero no Tsukaima

Zero no Tsukaima

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?

Granted the theme isnt quite the same, but if you like the kind of humor that is presented in both animes, it will be a great watch! The weirdness levels of both animes are presented in a similair way even though Zero no Tsukaima is more about magic then Ouran High School Host Club, they both have the school life theme and absurd humour to keep you entertained.

teeny teeny says...

Both animes are filled with cute unknowing love stories. They are both also filled with comedy. If you like the love and comedy of ouran, then you'll like zero no tsukaima.

eaper eaper says...

Although these anime have an extremely different plot and setting, both of them are still centered around a character that is "out-of-place,"  and are extremely comic series with a romance happening in the back ground.

One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned.

While keeping close to their roots, both Ouran and Gurren-Lagann are like problem childs of their respective genres. Ouran is about bishounen, yes, but it also mocks all those blonde beautiful boys and their luxurious life. Gurren-Lagann is obvious mecha, but all the reason is kicked to the curb and most impossible things are done without any problem. Watch both of the series even if you don’t like their genres – ESPECIALLY if you don’t like their genres!

foureyedalice foureyedalice says...

Ouran High School Host Club and Tengen Topppa Gurren Lagann have one primary goal: to be hilariously outrageous and over-the top at almost all times.  Both series adamantly demand that you not take them seriously as they constantly play on and play up their respective genres, much to the audience's benefit. If you liked either of these shows because of their ability to somehow be both sheerly irreverent (in their comedy and mecha action/comedy, respectively) and have a heart, then you should definitely watch the other.

Did you love how over-the-top the comedy was in either Gurren Lagann or Ouran High School was? Well, both anime feature a lot of it. Both anime introduce a lot of interesting characters and tend to parody their own genres. 

Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile

The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.

The story is different and the kind of humor is a bit different. But somehow, thinking of these titels I can't help but connect them in my mind. It might be the art style that does it, but I really think they should be watched both (and will be enjoyed both) if you liked either one of them.

sorako sorako says...

Both are centered around the idea of a humorous love story that seem to inch along each episode involving more friendly characters to expand the cast and plot. The characters are lovable, each falling into a unique "anime cliche" (from the dark, handsome lead, to the cute chibi chan, to your favorite afro cross-dresser) that only make you smile more and become more invested in the entire cast. Seriously, if you're a fan of comedic love stories, both are for you!

eaper eaper says...

Each of the series are centered around absurd love stories with plenty of laughs. Beyond that there isn't much in common, but I still think each series would be enjoyed by anyone that enjoyed the other.
