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 a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
Granted the theme isnt quite the same, but if you like the kind of humor that is presented in both animes, it will be a great watch! The weirdness levels of both animes are presented in a similair way even though Zero no Tsukaima is more about magic then Ouran High School Host Club, they both have the school life theme and absurd humour to keep you entertained.
Both animes are filled with cute unknowing love stories. They are both also filled with comedy. If you like the love and comedy of ouran, then you'll like zero no tsukaima.
Although these anime have an extremely different plot and setting, both of them are still centered around a character that is "out-of-place," and are extremely comic series with a romance happening in the back ground.
Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...
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.
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.
On a day that seemed ordinary, a spaceship crash landed in Tokyo bay, filled to the brim with beautiful aliens that would come to be known as DearS. Since that day, though all of Japan seems to have gone DearS-crazy, one high school boy named Takeya it still not impressed by the phenomenon. But things change for Takeya when he finds a lone DearS girl on the side of the road, who forces herself into his apartment, and his life! Now, he must brave a plethora of complications, misunderstandings, and embarassments, when all he wants to do is be left alone!
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.
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.
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.
