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.

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.

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.

Clannad

Clannad

Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...

Though different in plot and focus, if you liked the relentless humor in either Host Club or Clannad, you will definitely appreciate the humor in the other.

Morwen Morwen says...

Ouran is way heavier on the comedy than Clannad, which is overall slower paced and a bit more serious, but both of these shows are great harem anime that focus a lot on developing the characters in the show beyond their roles as a love interest or main character. Haruhi and Tomoya are very similar in temperment, as well. Clannad is a bit more tragic, while Ouran  saves its dramatic moments for certain episodes, but they still share a lot of great elements that makes both of these series a joy to watch, and prove that you can actually do some really compelling storytelling within the harem genre.

Sora no Manimani

Sora no Manimani

Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!

Both these shows are centered around a very loud and obnoxious girl and her high school club. Their friends try to keep them in check while participating in club activities including trips and fairs.

AirCommodore AirCommodore says...

While the subjects of the jokes in Ouran and Sora no Manimani were different, the visual humor was identical. Chibi-fied characters and exaggerated facial expressions (while included in most comedy anime series) were strikingly similar.

Also, they both revolve around the day-to-day lives of a high school club, and include light romance, comedy, and some parodies (especially Ouran).

Miracle Train

Miracle Train

An urban legend tells of a Miracle Train that runs the tracks of Tokyo’s subways. Appearing only to troubled ladies, it’s said to house a few young men who are manifestations of the Oedo Line’s stations; together, they are able to solve any problem that plagues their passengers. Whether it’s helping a girl who lost her dog to a woman who refuses to tell the boys of her problems, Shinjuku, Roppongi, Shiodome, Tsukushima, Ryogoku and Tocho-mae will help anyone they meet aboard the Miracle Train.

This recomendation is for those who are watching either show, not because of similar style of story. Or type of Genre. but rather, if your looking for a tale revolving a bevy of highly good looking men.

That is right, although Miracle Train is kinda funny in parts, it is more of an episodic light supernatural story. Ouran is more of a hyper comedy romance.

But both have a cast of men, who could be interchangeable for personalities. 

Anyhow, if your watching one for the reasons mentioned, you will probably like the other.

Miracle Train and Ouran are great animes, about a bunch of guys who work to please their 'customers' or 'passengers'. Both the animes are comedy, with a bit of romance in it, and are about strange topics(Ouran- a host club, Miracle Train- um, well, a train), but they're really addictive. :D
