Synopsis:

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...

He is My Master

He is My Master

Runaway sisters Izumi and Mitsuki have a problem. They've got no place to go! That is, until Yoshitaka Nakabayashi, a teenage orphan rich beyond their wildest dreams, offers them jobs as maids. It seems like a dream come true... for all of a few minutes. From spy cameras in the sauna to fetish wear as uniforms, Yoshitaka will stop at nothing to gratify his own perversities, with or without the girls' consent. Can the girls stave off his advances with the help of their hyperactive pet alligator, or will they end up doing service a lot more personal than just cleaning house?

FalseDawn

Both have a similar basis in that the main character is poor and breaks something valuable, so he/she spends the rest of the series attempting to make up for this. Both series have their charms - HiMM has Mitsuki's fantastic array of challenges, whereas Ouran has a great cast of characters. While the story is lacking in both, the comedy and insane energy of the two series make them worth watching.

caitlin

Both Ouran High School Host Club and He is my Master have a similar underlying plot, of a 'commoner' (or two, in HimM's case) falling in with the rich, breaking something (or many things) valuable, and earning a debt that they must serve off by serving the rich person/people in some way. Both also have a similar vein of comedy, and characters that joke about their starring in a 'love comedy'. If you liked one, I'm sure you'd like the other.

bellatrix4574

Beautiful young girl forced to work for money by a high school boy (or boys as it were) for less than scrupulous motives.... Sounds like a great anime to me!! Master and Host Club are two of the funniest animes I've ever seen! Love the humor and acctually have good life lessons inbetween all the ecchi! Both are definatly worth your time!

Maria Holic

Maria Holic

Kanako Miyamae hates boys so much that she breaks out into hives after any physical contact with them. So when she is able to transfer to the Ame no Kisaki Girl’s school, Kanako is overjoyed that she can now search for her fated yuri partner. When she arrives, Kanako meets Shidou Mariya, a beautiful young girl who is exactly her type... except that Mariya is really a sarcastic and sadistic young boy who is masquerading as a girl! With no intention of being expelled from school, Mariya threatens Kanako into keeping his secret, and decides to guard her twenty-four hours a day to ensure that she does. Now Kanako must share a room with Mariya who is gleefully making her life a misery while using his ‘feminine’ charms to stop her protesting. Throw into the mix Ryuuken, the most popular girl in school who has vowed to protect her; and Kiri - who claims they are dating to prevent her from being bullied - and it seems as if Kanako’s dream of all-girl school life will be nothing like she imagined!

I like ouran high school host club sooo much more than Maria Holic, Because maria holic is less funny, less roamntic, etc...

But they both have similar story line. In ouran high school host club the girl is confuse with a boy and most keep the secret. In maria holic the boy is confuse with a girl and most keep the secret.

eaper

Each of these shows are centered around and hang heavily on cross dressers and manipulation as the stories premise. Beyond that, romance, at least in some way, is a strong factor in each series, along with comedy. Maria+Holic is the more twisted little lesbian sister of Ouran.

MaraRuizu

There are quite a few similarities Maria Holic and Ouran High School Host Club. When it comes to setting, the schools that these shows take place in both give off an elusive and exclusive air.

Both have strong casts with some characters who are aware of fanservice and use it to their advantage as well as crossdressers.

The silliness of the plots and characters also seem alike. When it comes to the darker plot points, there is even some overlap; The newcomer attracts the attention of a school idol, is therefore bullied by jealous fans.

Maria Holic seems to be more mean-spirited, though.

Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile

The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.

roukew

The story is different and the kind of humor is a bit different. But somehow, thinking of these titels I can't help but connect them in my mind. It might be the art style that does it, but I really think they should be watched both (and will be enjoyed both) if you liked either one of them.

sorako

Both are centered around the idea of a humorous love story that seem to inch along each episode involving more friendly characters to expand the cast and plot. The characters are lovable, each falling into a unique "anime cliche" (from the dark, handsome lead, to the cute chibi chan, to your favorite afro cross-dresser) that only make you smile more and become more invested in the entire cast. Seriously, if you're a fan of comedic love stories, both are for you!

eaper

Each of the series are centered around absurd love stories with plenty of laughs. Beyond that there isn't much in common, but I still think each series would be enjoyed by anyone that enjoyed the other.

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.

Sunagan

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.

DuskFey

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!

hamletsmage

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.

Peach Girl

Peach Girl

Momo is loud, shallow, a player, a betrayer, and one to best stay away from -- or at least, that's the misconception people have when they see her makeup, bleached hair and suntanned skin. In reality, Momo just wants the same friends, hobbies and crushes any girl her age would like. However, when her only friend starts spreading rumours about her, her boyfriend starts to doubt her, and the most popular boy in school starts to take a more then friendly interest in her, she'll have much more to worry about than just her appearance!

Both Peach Girl and Ouran deal with a high school-type relationship. There is also a love triangle in each of them, although Peach Girl seems more focused on which guy she will choose, while in Ouran the heroine does not even know that the guys like her.

tai851

These are quite similar, yet they are both amazing and very entertaining. I reccommend you watch them both!

pacord1

Although Peach Girl is a lot more dramatic, it is still similar. If you are looking for just comedy and can't stand the drama, do not watch Peach Girl. If you are looking for drama, Ouran does not almost any. I liked them both because it shared the classic highschool scenario with romance. I still recommend it because I enjoyed them both. I could deal with the drama and I just love comedies like Ouran.
