Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.
While 'Ouran High School Host Club' is a comedy about school life and 'Black Butler' is about a demonic contract, fans of 'Ouran' will still find themselves attracted to 'Black Butler'. As fans of 'Ouran' know, the series is chock full of bi-shonen boys, as is 'Black Butler'. If you found yourself attracted to the boys of 'Ouran', you'll just as easily fall in love with the boys of 'Black Butler'. And since both are dubbed by FUNimation, there's not much to hate! In fact the English voice actor for Kyouya also voices the demonic butler (Sebastian Michaelis) of 'Black Butler'. And of course 'Black Butler' has plenty of comedy aspects as well. Such as the oh-so loveable chibis and of course a few gender confusing boys. Again, I highly reccomend 'Black Butler' if you are seriously in to bi-shonen anime guys!
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam.

Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Love Hina is a wonderous Romantic Harem anime that seems pretty down to earth (except a few robot turtles and antics). The main characters are very relatible and the story is simply fantastic.
Takasu Ayako can handle anything; duels with foreign powers and assassination attempts don’t faze her. But can she handle falling in love? Fellow students at the prestigious school for Beatrice users are shocked to hear that their "Angel of Death" Ayako, who has never even shown a smile before, has fallen in love at first sight with the diminutive freshman Yoshimura Mamoru. Mamoru must decide how to respond to the sudden confession of love, the resulting fascination of his fellow students, and the dangers of being near Ayako. Will his own powers ever measure up?
Ouran and Mamoru are comedies centered on school life that can have you in tears from laughing so hard. Mamoru is more of a romance story continuously interrupted, while Ouran High is more over-the-top and strictly comedic; but the characters in both lend themselves well to outrageously funny situations.
Both of these stories have a happy ending that could go further, but doesn't have to (there are no ridiculous cliffhangers or final last words that make you look for the rewind button to see if you missed something). All in all, for pure humorous enjoyment, both of these will keep you laughing.
It was a time of political instability. While most of Europe was involved with power struggles, the island country of Kuchen followed its own independent path; and with the leadership of an intelligent king and his advisors, the people worked to restore their kingdom. These advisors, with strong minds and good backgrounds, were graduates of a prestigious boarding school known as the Rozenstolz Academy. Follow the lives of the five students with the potential to become the king's next advisors (known as the Strahl candidates), as they strive to achieve their dreams.
Both series focus on an exclusive "group" of rich boys at an elite boarding school. Meine Liebe is more serious and Ouran is definitely more of a comedy, but if you like one you should find the other enjoyable, even if only for the fact that both of these "groups" are made up of "attractive" characters.

Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...
