I thought it was funny in both Peach Girl and Good Morning Call how they had one of the main guys working at a grocery store. Both series are about relationship problems during high school life and show how the characters have to deal with them. Good Morning Call is only one episode long, but in that one episode it conveys a lot to the watcher just as Peach Girl does.

Both Peach Girl and Hataraki Man feature a strong-willed yet sensible main character who is seeking happiness, whether she is in love, or trying to work hard; both characters go through daily hardships and moments of happiness. The graphical styles are also very much alike, and both anime could be compared as being a shojo vs josei treatment of similar topics and morals.

When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?
Why hasn't this recommendation been made yet? Ridiculous.
Obviously, these two stories are very different. Peach girl is a dramatic love triangle between close friends and one of the main themes is insecurity. Itazura na Kiss focuses more on the tense relationship between what seems to be two strangers forced to live under one roof who have to try extra hard to get along.
The reason these animes compliment each other so well is because of the art style, setting and personality of the female lead. Despite a small lack of intelligence, over exaggerated girliness and stubborn-ness, these characters (Momo and Kotoko) are impossible to dislike.
The cutesy highschool feel really wraps up this recommendation. If you liked one, give the other a shot.
