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 an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!
Both anime feel quite similar in approach to romance. Firstly, both concentrate on the tensions between a poor but very intelligent female and her wealthy-yet-seemingly-shallow male interest. Comedy in both is light-hearted, with a combination of slap-stick and irony, and tends to be geared towards the silliness of the wealthy/advantaged. Despite the comic elements, both anime are highly successful in bringing out the deeper personalities and troubles of their characters. Their animation styles are also of similar quality, with bright, soft hues, and gorgeous bishounen males.
Both of these anime have a unique type of humor. If you're a shounen-ai fan you will really love the sibling love between Hikaru and Kaoru from Ouran as well as The Emperor and Seiran from Saiunkoku Monogatari. Also, the female protagonist in both is like a magnet for handsome men.
It's a fairly safe bet to say that almost anyone who enjoyed one of these will probably enjoy the other. While the premises are very different, the two have the same light, comedic feel to them with just a little seriousness thrown in here and there. The main heroines have quite a few similarities - not simply in the fact that they are both strong, intelligent females but also regarding smaller details - and the lead males both have the same sort of childish but romantic charm. Each series is sweet and romantic in its own way and very entertaining, and if you happen to be watching one then I highly reccomend pairing it with the other.
While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!
You wouldn't read this if you didn't liked Ouran High School host club. That makes things easy. Romance, humor, extreme characters. Everything that made you enjoy it can be found in Seto no Hanayome too. Well, unless it was the shouta that made you like it.
These two incredibly original shows have one main thing in common: absurdity. If you like that certain type of humor, that is unrealistic, random, and absolutely mind-boggling, but undoubtedly hilarious, you'd like both of these shows.
So one day I was bored and decided to start naming shonen counterparts to all the shojo titles I like. So after I reasoned that GTO would be kodocha's, I began thinking about one of my favoirte titles.
Okay, so the opposite of Ouran would have to be a parody of the shonen genre and it must be a harem of bishojos. It must do all of this while still being enjoyable and funny. While I was thinking this, one particular title starting forming in my mind. Seto no hanayome. It's over the top shonen-ness and pointless plethora of overdeveloped girls surrounding nagasumi was just the answer for Ouran's over the top shojo-ness and pointless plethora of overatractive boys surrounding Haruhi.
Kyoko moves to the big city with the prince of her dreams Shotaro; he wants to make it big in the entertainment business, so she works hard at many different jobs to support him as he achieves his dream. However, one day, Kyoko accidentally discovers the horrible truth: the love of her life thinks of her as a 'plain and boring woman!' Outraged, Kyoko swears revenge – she will make it even bigger than Shotaro in the entertainment world. The only question is, how will she fulfill her desire?
Both animes have talented, spunky main female characters. The are both surrounded by a cast of "pretty" boys who prove to be more complex then they seemed. All in all, the character development of both animes is the driving force of show.
The comedy, and even the romance, in each of these series are similar and extremely well done. If you liked one you're sure to feel the same about the other.
I believe the humor in both shows would appeal to the same audence. Both have a female lead who is a "fish out of water" type of character who has to change herself to fit in, and is also there for kind of the wrong reason. In Ouran High School Host Club she has disguided herself as a boy, and she is stuck there to pay off the a debt. In Skip Beat! she changes her looks to make it in show business to get revenge on an Ex-boy. But these shows share the same over the top emotional humor, and suggestive situations that lead to misunderstanding.
Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels.

One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
While keeping close to their roots, both Ouran and Gurren-Lagann are like problem childs of their respective genres. Ouran is about bishounen, yes, but it also mocks all those blonde beautiful boys and their luxurious life. Gurren-Lagann is obvious mecha, but all the reason is kicked to the curb and most impossible things are done without any problem. Watch both of the series even if you don’t like their genres – ESPECIALLY if you don’t like their genres!
Ouran High School Host Club and Tengen Topppa Gurren Lagann have one primary goal: to be hilariously outrageous and over-the top at almost all times. Both series adamantly demand that you not take them seriously as they constantly play on and play up their respective genres, much to the audience's benefit. If you liked either of these shows because of their ability to somehow be both sheerly irreverent (in their comedy and mecha action/comedy, respectively) and have a heart, then you should definitely watch the other.
Did you love how over-the-top the comedy was in either Gurren Lagann or Ouran High School was? Well, both anime feature a lot of it. Both anime introduce a lot of interesting characters and tend to parody their own genres.
Cross Academy is a school with a difference: in a unique and experimental setup designed by the headmaster, it has a Day Class consisting of ordinary humans and a Night Class filled with vampires. Yuki Cross and her friend Zero Kiryu are school prefects whose job it is to make sure the secret of the Night Class is always safe; they patrol the school grounds at night and supervise the switchover of classes at dawn and dusk to prevent any 'accidents' from happening. While Zero is suspicious of vampires and hates the idea of sharing the same space as them, Yuki admires the Night Class for their beauty and sophistication; she is especially intrigued by their charming leader, Kaname, because he once saved her life. However, as Yuki quickly learns, not all vampires are amiable like the Night Class, and as terrible events unfold, Yuki must ask herself whether in a world where vampires are the hunters and humans are the prey, peaceful coexistence can really be achieved.
you will like this anime because of the story and the characters as well. like vampire knight, both girls of the anime are being chased by the handsome boys.
Both Anime's have a bunch of hot guys running around.
Its like girl fan service really.
If you like one you'd most likely like the other
Ouran High School Host Club and Vampire Knight are both fun animes that take place in a different kind of high school setting. Rather than regular run-of-the-mills high school, these animes aim to add a little bit of spice to their setting - whether it be through super hot vampire students or super hot host club students. If you liked one, be sure to check out the other.
