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.

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 ~Ooedo-sen e Youkoso~

Miracle Train ~Ooedo-sen e Youkoso~

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

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...

Although Ouran parodies shoujo anime and Fumoffu is focused more on parodying action films, both series have a similar mix of romantic comedy and parody. Both also have really fun, memorable, enjoyable characters. It should probably be noted for fans of Ouran that Fumoffu's comedy is sometimes raunchier, and fans of Fumoffu should know that Ouran places a greater emphasis on the romance element of the show than Fumoffu ever does, but overall I think fans of one should give the other a chance.

I could just say school antics and leave it at that, but there are some other similarities between the two. Like the male lead seeming to be out of touch with reality half the time, and the female lead desperately trying to talk him down (and failing). And the romance between the protagonists never really develops, despite attempts by the side characters.

There are a whole group of boys around the cross-dressing female lead in both of these series and there is a variety of personalties among the group. Also, both lead girls seem similar to me, in that they are neither a tom-boy nor very feminine, not strong but not the weak, crying type.

Shiraiyuki Shiraiyuki says...

The similarities between Hakuouki and Ouran are not in plot.I think they're similar in the characters: a bunch of handsome, overprotective, guys and female cross-dresser.

In short, if you like/liked one you'll probably like the other.

thy're both really fun romantic comidies if you enjoyed one im sure ill enjoy the other.the chartcers are at times really wacky and the main charticers of these two shows are alot alike.

pacord1 pacord1 says...

Both main characters are great, but what I liked more about both animes is the rivalry between the boys and the rivalry between the DearS. It is very funny and entertaining. It has a sad backround for the characters which I also like because it gives the more depth.
