In both Sumomomo and Rizelmine, the female characters try to marry the male characters but are rejected. The stories circle mainly around the two main characters' love.


Like male characters who don't pay any attention to the females who drool all over them? Both Rizelmine and Momomo have some off-the-wall humour and they're very much in the same vein with the way they portrays ecchi. I like to think of Rizelmine as Sumomo's older cousin...


Both anime are about a girl who wants to marry a guy and moves in it with him,everyone apprroves of this except the guy himself.


you'll like this too because both male leads are forced into a marriage with a loli type person and they get into funny situations trying to get out of the marriage.


Sumomo is Rizel on Speed. Both male leads are forced into engagements with naive girls wielding huge destructive power.


Both of these go by the same theme (a little girl that likes an older guy and the older guy couldn't care less about the little girl). These are both extreamly funny and both have fight scenes (well sort of).


Both of these anime are about a girl that is has this extreme 1 sided relationship going on with the main character. So they are both extremely similar in that way.  Another huge similiarity is that both of these girls really want to be married to this guy who is always (and I do mean always) pushing the girl off of them.  Not to mention that in both of these anime the girls start living with the male character that they love right off the bat and the girls are both extremely powerful creatures.  Chances are if you liked one you'll most likely enjoy the other


Both Sumomomo Momomo and Rizelmine are stories based around small underdeveloped girls suddenly moving in with a guy and the proceeding chaos that ensues. In both cases, said "girlfriend" is completely willing to sleep with the male lead right away and ultimately desires marriage. Both series feature a male lead who is not into this idea at all. If you enjoy wacky comedies based around this concept these anime are required viewing. If you happened to watch one or the other, and liked it, you will certainly enjoy the other.


In both series, the lead character constantly deals with the advances of a girl who desprately wants to marry them. For the most part, both also ignore them quite frequently. For majority of the time, the plot revolves around this 'dance' between them, and the comedic issues that arise!

If you enjoyed either Rizelmine or Sumomomo Momomo, then the other is a good next watch!

Final Approach

Final Approach
  • TV (13 eps x 12 min)
  • 2004

In present-day Japan, a rising decline in the birth rate has prompted the government to intervene, thus forming the R.T.P. committee whose goal is to promote arranged marriages. Due to the sensitive nature of the issue, however, a test run was deemed mandatory, and young Ryo Mizuhara (chosen by the world's best supercomputer) was selected as the test subject, much to his own dismay. With the megalomaniac Shizuka Masuda appointed as his fiancee and secret agents in his face at every turn, can Ryo manage to save his sanity, let alone his bachelor lifestyle of the past?

If you're in the mood for mandatory marriages and reinforced by the national government or powerful syndicate romance saturated with cuteness of female cast members and annoy the hell out of male leads, then those are for you. While final approach gets a bit more serious, both are light easy going love comedies where female leads struggle for attention from their beloved.

The theme of arranged marriage, with or without compulsion, is a popular one in Japanese anime. Numerous anime make this the gimmick of the story, with a powerful agency or person to enforce the "shotgun wedding". In Final Approach, as well as in Rizelmine, it's the government of Japan (yes, really!) behind the marriage plans.

As silly as the premise may be, the topic of forced marriage works very well to support a sweet romance, in both cases.


It's the same storyline down to its core: a forced marriage, but that's not the main reason why I'm recommending it. I'm recommending this because the character relationships and how the protagonist reacts is the same, this results in similar comedy styles. If you enjoyed the faceless "muscle muscle" bodyguards in Final Approach, you'll like the little antics of Rizelmine's three papa's. Rizelmine gave a well rounded conclusion and is very funny. Final Approach had a lot of fun "chibi" moments.


The story of Final Approach and Rizelmine is similar: a high school boy is being forced to marry an unknown girl who suddenly shows up at his house along with some government agents. There are many hilarious scenes since the girl tries everything to get the boy to like her but things don't always go smoothly.


Same basic story. Guy is forced to marry someone and later learns he has developted feelings for that person. Both shows are very short but hilarious and fun.


This simularity in these two animes aren't hard to so. Both male protagonist are forced into cohabitating and being engaged to a woman they've never met or can't remember meeting previously. Both are strongly against it at first but then develope positive feeling for the other over time. And both have women have reinforced authority...


These anime have a guy forced into marriage with a quirky female, who he finds exasperating simply to be around - unfortunately for him, they have to live together due to questionable governmental acts! The length of all episodes are near fifteen minutes of comedy/romance too.


both of these shows are about arranged marriage to make the government happy. although i personally prefer rizelmine to the other both are a good ekploration of the arranged marriage genre.



On a day that seemed ordinary, a spaceship crash landed in Tokyo bay, filled to the brim with beautiful aliens that would come to be known as DearS. Since that day, though all of Japan seems to have gone DearS-crazy, one high school boy named Takeya it still not impressed by the phenomenon. But things change for Takeya when he finds a lone DearS girl on the side of the road, who forces herself into his apartment, and his life! Now, he must brave a plethora of complications, misunderstandings, and embarassments, when all he wants to do is be left alone!

Both series are boy-meets-girl anime series, though with as main theme the rejection from the boy side. (Ie: Girl wants to get closer, boy wants to get rid of her). Besides the somewhat more loose humor in Rizelmine and the somewhat less ecchiness in Rizelmine, these series are quite similar.

Both "Rizelmine" and "DearS" are about a guy who gets a single girl in one way or another pushed upon him. Both main characters are slowly growing attached to the girl's presence.


both male leads have a similar type of humour,get into ecchi situations,hang around a lot of women and have a corny ending



Ink Nijihara, who does very well in her high school English class, has a crush on her classmate Nao; but as she is both shy and clumsy, she finds herself unable to get closer to him. Furthermore, since he does poorly in English, he does not intend to go to a university, crushing Ink's dreams of going there together with him. Out of the blue, a talking duck who turns out to be a polymorphed (and perverted) wizard exiled from a magic kingdom falls from the sky and lands in front of Ink. He offers her magical powers in return for helping people in need. Ink sees the magical girl transformation as a chance to help Nao with his English without feeling embarrassed about it, and thus she begins her adventures as Magical Teacher Pastel Ink!

Both of these series are completely fan service lolicon shows, although Rizelmine can be touching in parts. They both have a great sense of comedy about them, and if you enjoyed one, the other is made just for you.


Yes, if you enjoyed the haphazard loli craziness of Rizelmine, Moetan is an easy next choice. My main reason is that both shows have their nudity and their "sexual depictions". On a lesser note, both shows have a short 13-episode half-hour length. Even if the main characters' views are different, do not let that stop you from enjoying these shows.


There's a good sense of comedy in both shows.  Rizelmine offers a bit more in the romance department, though.  If you enjoy lolis, panties, and have a good sense of humor, either of these animes would satisfy.



Having failed to earn admission to a university, Hideki Motosuwa has moved to the big city, determined to study his hardest for next year's exams. However, an unusual distraction presents itself one unsuspecting day in the form of Chii, a robotic young girl that has been discarded in the trash. In a world where an increasing number of people turn to these 'persocoms' for company, the bonds and limits of human relationships are tested as flesh manages to fall in love with the machine itself...

If you liked Rizelmine your'e surely gonna love this. The girl is like bth technollogy and they both fall in love.


both main male characters meet a girl who is a human created being, but look like normal girls, though Chii is a robot and Rizel is a genetically created human, the fact that they have been created is the same.

both series show how the girls keep on teasing the boys, showing (on purpose or not) their panties or private parts of their bodies making the guys go all red and giving them so much problems. They also start falling in love for each other, and there's always talking about the chosen one for the girls and how this is important for their future.
