Nyan Koi!

Nyan Koi!

Everyone around Kousaka seems to adore cats, but due to his allergies the teen can’t stand them. So when he wakes up one day and can hear what every feline is saying, Kousaka is annoyed to say the least. His new “gift,” it seems, is the result of accidentally breaking an enshrined statue of a cat; and what’s worse, Kousaka must atone for his sin and appease the vengeful spirit by aiding one hundred kitties-in-distress, or become a furry feline himself! Now, amidst helping various cats with mundane and trivial issues, Kousaka must try to dispel the jinx and attempt to salvage his self-respect – not to mention his love life - along the way.

Do you like sarcastic humor concentrated on one plagued individual? A lot of fluff? Series that don't take themselves too seriously? Do you possibly like pointless but funny romances going absolutely nowhere?

Then look no further, for these series have it both. Indeed, in my opinion Ouran is the strongest of the two in delivering merciless assaults on your facial muscles, but I still felt the similarity all down to my gut while I was laughing :-D (ouch)! If you've seen one then by all means check out the other.

Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club and Junpei from Nyan Koi! both break something extremely important in the first episode and end up indebted to someone they'd rather not associate with. Mix in some comedy and awkward situations, and things get fun!

Ouran is the reverse-harem version of Nyan Koi!. When the main character breaks a valuable object, they find themselves suddenly hurled into a world of humorous antics and gags at their expense. Both protagonists must help others to pay off their debt, while fending off some rather hilarious attempts at relationships.

Kyo Kara Maoh!

Kyo Kara Maoh!

Upon trying to save a friend from bullies, Shibuya Yuuri finds his head in the unlikeliest of places -- the toilet. Like a flash, Yuuri is then inadvertently sucked in, transporting him somewhere else! In this unfamiliar world of flying skeletons and magic, he is informed by a group called the Mazoku that he is to be the next Maou -- ruler of the kingdom! With harrowing and embarassing situations ahead, can our hero swallow his pride and lead a war against the common people when he can't even tell the difference between a slap in the face and a marriage proposal?

Kyo Kara Maoh! and Ouran High School Host Club are filled with cute boys and flirt with characteristics of the shounen-ai genre. Both shows also have lots of comedy in them. If you like yaoi-light, or if you just enjoy light-hearted, funny anime, then both these shows are worth watching.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these anime have some over-the-top humor mixed in with serious plot points now and again. Both include a large bishounen to non-bishounen ratio, and both have bishies that aren't afraid of a little shounen-ai based antics. And both Haruhi and Yuuri are the voice of reason (weirdly enough) for both groups at least 90% of the time. 

Gravitation

Gravitation

As a member of a musical duo on the verge of making it into show business, Shindou Shuichi has a lot on his mind -- especially since he writes the songs for his Bad Luck band. His life gets no less hectic when he bumps into Yuki Eiri, a successful yet cynical author extraordinaire, who immediately insults Shuichi’s lyrics upon reading them. Seeking him out to demand an apology, Shuichi nevertheless sees other facets of Eiri’s personality. Can he accept the fact that he might be developing feelings for the novelist who discredited his work on their first meeting?

Both Ouran and Gravitation have the same blend of slapstick humour with the occasional serious moment thrown in. The artwork is stylistically similar, and the humour is just as random and eccentric.

RAWRified RAWRified says...

Simply for comedy reasons both of these anime must be watched. The ridiculous sense of humour found in both of them is also couped by occassional moments of angst and dark backgrounds to most of the characters. While Gravitation is solid shounen-ai, Ouran isn't, but while saying that all the characters are highly slashable and while watching either of them you'll find yourself echoing the ouran girls' 'KYA!'

Honey and Clover

Honey and Clover

Art college: cradle of romance, home of bittersweet moments. Takemoto is struggling to find his direction in life, while his roommates Morita and Mayama are moving confidently - or recklessly - towards their goals. Enter Hagu-chan, the childlike and beautiful prodigy whom everyone admires; and thus the love triangles begin. Together, the trio explore the pain of first love, the trials of romantic conflict, and our loyalty to those annoying people who happen to be our closest friends.

Both animes talk about life as students, and both have elements of humor. Certainly, Honey and Clover is much more mature, but sometimes in Ouran you can see glimpses of that...and a lot of humor!

sarwor248 sarwor248 says...

Both of these have random comedy mixed in with sweet poignant moments. The characters are all well developed and by the end you will care about them all.

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

Its not quite the same settin, nor feeling, but I think these series have something in common which would do that you like both. It's how they both (patially) describe japaneese school and everyday life, with a storyline with romance and a large dose of humor.

erede007 erede007 says...

Both animes have a similar school life feel to them with humorous and sometimes ridiculous occurences happening to the group of main characters. The episodic style is also a common theme between both of these two fantastic anime. GTO's humor is slightly more vulgar in its nature, but not ridiculously so.
