Hotaru Tachibana is a girl disguised as a boy. Through strange circumstances she finds herself drawn into the world of survival games by a host, Masamune Matsuoka. The two form a team with ero-manga artist Tohru Yukimura and aim to be the be the best in Japan.
The main theme of these anime is identical: an ambiguous girl stumbles into a host club, and is believed to be male. After breaking something in the club's room, the girl owes favors to the host club in order to pay back the money she'd have to pay for the damages.
The main topic in these animes is the same. With the only exception that the guys in the host club of Aoharu are more mature and she has to participate in a tournament instead of entertaining other girls in the club.
Both of these anime revovle around female girls who are mistaken as guys. The main female in each also has to pay off their debt they owe to the host club. Aoharu is more of action but both are similar.
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.
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.
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.
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!'
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!
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.
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.
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.
