Both series got the main theme of romance where the girl got a hard time picking the right boyfriend. Paradise kiss is ofc lot shorter and doesnt go into as much details but they both remind me of each other. The bad boy trying to catch a good girl. Im sure you'll like the other if you havent watched it.
Although they are intended for different demographics (shoujo for Boys over Flowers and josei for ParaKiss), these are a pair of good, dramatic romances. I think fans of one would enjoy the other.

In his desire to find the truth of her murder, he comes before the King and becomes closely entwined in the mysterious organization known as Le Secret du Roi. He quickly finds himself embroiled in a realm of spiritual energy where death is a gate to greater powers and the Psalm of the King brings destruction in its wake. D'Eon must ask himself what is the price of truth and who will pay it, as the French Revolution looms inevitably nearer.
Chevalier and PK are painfully fashionable and stunning to watch; the costume designs are to die for and the stories of the anime are set in modern society. They are good for teens who are in that stage of life where they want to watch scenarios of people making life-changing decisions. These anime will leave an impression on teens due to their drama and mother-daughter situations that many can relate to. As far as career choices, it's all about being who you are.
Paradise Kiss and Le Chevalier D’Eon are both centered around the drama of the time with life changing choices and stunning fashion statements.
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!
Besides the similar animation, Peach Girl and Paradise Kiss also have main characters with similar personalities who hesitate between two boys; although that is more central in Peach Girl, and more of a side element in Paradise Kiss. Both of the girls will have to learn to make their own decisions.
In Peach Girl and Paradise Kiss both girls have to learn how to make their own decisions in what they want to do. There is also a love-triangle between guys although it is more apparent in Peach Girl.

Romeo x Juliet and Paradise Kiss are both love stories. The character designs are different, but they have in common the fact that they are both very beautiful and full of details. They also have in common the idea of a love story that is not too sickly sweet or silly, and have girls who are very determined and not stupid due to their destiny or duty. They also have sad endings.
If you like ParaKiss you'll like Romeo x Juliet because both anime are largely romance and tragic stories with a strong heroine and handsome male lead. There is more action in Romeo x Juliet then ParaKiss for obvious reasons. but all-in-all if you've watched one its worth giving the other a try
Lonely Kaoru Nishimi has lost count of how many times he has moved schools thanks to his father's naval career. Newly landed in Kyushu, he finds most of his classmates instantly antagonistic towards him and suspicious of his elite background. Only two other students seem not to mind who he is – the infamously abrasive Sentarou and the gentle Ritsuko. Unbeknownst to Kaoru they have a passion for jazz, and they're about to pull him out of his stiff, joyless world into theirs of loose, swinging self-expression. Through friendship and frustration, love and despair, Kaoru will learn that life has a wealth of experiences in store for him!
Both anime are josei and slice of life. Both have the same kind of feeling to them. Both have a lot of romance between the characters.
I think both Paradise Kiss and Kids on the Slope appeal to an older audience. The romance and friendships are similar, and the atmosphere in both turns from innocent to bittersweet by the end.
