When Utena Tenjou was very little her parents died, and a prince comforted her in her time of loss, giving her a ring with a rose seal. He so impressed her that she decided to become a prince herself one day. Now, Utena is a teenager at Ohtori Academy who's athletic and notorious for dressing in a boy's uniform. When a member of the Student Council humiliates a friend of hers Utena challenges him to a duel, and he accepts only when he sees she possesses a rose seal ring. She soon discovers that this is no normal duel - it's a bizarre and ritualistic battle that the Student Council regularly conducts. In fact when she wins, Utena finds to her considerable chagrin that she gets to have Anthy Himemiya, a rather docile student, as her 'Rose Bride'. If she wants to keep Anthy she'll have to win more duels against members of the Student Council and others. What is the ultimate purpose of these duels and Anthy's role as the Rose Bride?
Revolutionary Girl Utena and Princess Princess are about schools with an odd tradition and cross dressing. In RGU, a girl dresses as a prince and fights in duels. In PP, students at an all boys school are dressed up as girls as part of school events. In both, the students use these opportunities to grow and move on from events in their past. Princess Princess is a little on the lighter side and Revolutionary Girl Utena is more dark and serious.
Ritsuka has nowhere to run or hide. He lost his memories and his mother’s loving support, and then his brother -- his sole defender -- was brutally murdered. He is entirely alone until Soubi appears, saying the words he most wants to hear, but refuses to believe: “I love you and will do anything for you.” Flung into a world of intrigue and magic, where bonded pairs battle and only Soubi can fight for him, he struggles to find his brother’s killer. Yet he must also face the most bitter question of all: if you can't remember who you were, does that mean you don't know who you are?
Ritsuka is only 12 but believe me that doesn't mean he doesn't get any action! He suddenly practically has a slave/bodyguard and he's thrown into a battles of spells that are activated by mere words. Shonen ai and a protective college student bodyguard what more could you ask for? Loveless is like Princess Princess in the shonen ai and humor, I for one loved both series because of those two very reasons

Both Fruits Basket and Princess Princess revolve around pretty boys in unusual situations, including interesting back story (who doesn't love back story!?). Additionally, both are light hearted, fun, and a little bit off the beaten path in terms of storyline. Fruits Basket has transformations brought on by hugs, and Princess Princess has cross-dressing boys to "brighten up" the atmosphere of their all boys school. They're both a lot of fun in general, with great OP and ED songs. :)
