Synopsis:

Yukari is a typical high school student on the fast track to attending a university, but her boring life leaves much to be desired; that is, until a motley crew of fashion design students ask her to model their new clothing line: Paradise Kiss! Now, Yukari must choose if she will reject the life her mother has laid out for her, and start making choices on her own for the first time. While taking her first steps into adulthood, Yukari also begins to realize that with freedom comes responsibility; a life in the fashion industry isn't an easy one, especially for someone unsure of her own intentions…

Both anime share a fashion aspect in theme. Paradise kiss leaning stronger in that area. Both lead males show a dominance over the female character especially about what to wear.

Hataraki Man

Hataraki Man

28-year-old Hiroko Matsukata is the definition of a workaholic. On top of smoking too much, rarely having sex and having lousy luck nurturing her romantic life, she works excessively to get the job done. Alongside many co-workers at the weekly news magazine Jidai, Hiroko tirelessly works on countless stories – thus negating any chance of a social life. Can Hiroko balance her home and work life, or is she doomed to be a 'working man' forever?

I experienced the same type of feelings when watching Hataraki Man compared to Paradise Kiss. The atmosphere felt similar, and their approach on relationships. I find ParaKiss more artistic, but I find that both series give out similar themes.

Both anime are more mature than most romance anime and while they both have a happy core, they dish out some great and emotional drama.

At heart, Kubota is really looking for love – and one fateful night at a club, he finally finds what he’s looking for. Through the door walks Fujisaki, a girl he used to love in middle school; and better yet, she’s just broken up with her long time boyfriend.

Finding a genuine romance anime that deals with non high school students and serious topics is extremely rare in any era. Paradise Kiss and Nineteen 19, besides being poignant, clever and awesome, focus on adult topics with real life adults. Interesting music and animation tops both series, as well. If you liked one, definitely try out the other.

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.

Nodame Cantabile is a romantic tale like Paradise Kiss (maybe even a little more romantic).The main male character is similar to George, and the plot is somewhat similar (the characters are students or artists, and one of them has to leave Japan to study abroad) but the best part is that this one has a happier ending.
