Kei Kusanagi is a shy teenage boy with no romantic experience whatsoever... until he finds out that his hot new teacher is actually an alien! In order to conceal her identity, the two are forced into a pretend marriage... but is it really a pretense, or are they actually falling in love?
She cooks, she cleans, and is a lethal fighting machine. Mahoromatic, former Vesper battle android, has chosen to give up her weapons, extending her remaining life from 37 to 398 days. As Misato Suguru's maid, she fights battles of another sort, fending off an amorous teacher on one hand, ecchi magazines on the other. Can Mahoro save Suguru's innocence?
Takasu Ayako can handle anything; duels with foreign powers and assassination attempts don’t faze her. But can she handle falling in love? Fellow students at the prestigious school for Beatrice users are shocked to hear that their "Angel of Death" Ayako, who has never even shown a smile before, has fallen in love at first sight with the diminutive freshman Yoshimura Mamoru. Mamoru must decide how to respond to the sudden confession of love, the resulting fascination of his fellow students, and the dangers of being near Ayako. Will his own powers ever measure up?
Please Teacher and Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo! are similar in the relationship between the two main characters. Both Mamoru and Kei are younger and somewhat "lesser" men (boys, in fact) who are coupled with older and more powerful women. Both series have ecchi comedy and frequently put their couples in awkward situations. Please Teacher has a bit more love story worked in, whereas Mamoru-kun has more action, but overall, the two have very similar feels, so if you liked one, you should check out 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!
Both these series are romantic comedies starring a rather geeky kid who, through circumstances, are forced to marry a beautiful, kind and eager to please girl who's not quite human.
And in both of them, the couple is forced to keep their 'marriage' secret from all but a select group of people. And both couples soon find their relationship tested by other temptations as well as disapproving family-members.
So if you like one of these shows, I'd say there's a good chance of liking the other as well.
One day a light descends from the sky and splits into the ideal girls of Takeru and Ryou. That is where this gentle and vaguely romantic story about our ugly and beautiful world begins. Soon enough the story plummets into the secrets of global extinction and the meaning of life. Everything in this world that is beautiful has something ugly in it, and that ugliness is part of the secret of its beauty. Even for romance this is true...
In a far and distant future, men and women have become mortal enemies. Each living on seperate planets, an interstellar war is being fought between the two very different peoples. Hibiki, a mere 3rd class worker, finds himself in the middle of a huge space battle, facing the nemesis of mankind: Womankind!
Vandread might be about mecha whereas Please Teacher stays very true to the 'romantic comedy' genre; nonetheless they have a very similar feeling. Aside from common feelings such as shyness and jealousy, both have female leads who don't know much about men. Don't let the genres fool you, Vandread isn't that mecha-filled, so both series are very similar!
