Sorata Kanda has a real problem - he just can't say no to the cute face of a kitten! However, his lovely strays have finally landed him in trouble, as his dorm doesn't allow keeping pets. Given an ultimatum to get rid of the cats or move out, Sorata makes the mistake of standing up for himself and finds himself exiled to Sakurasou, the home of misfits the school doesn't know what to do with. Yet the more he spends time there, Sorata sees they all have their own incredible talents. None, however, enthralls him more than the latest arrival: Mashiro Shiina, a world class artist who is seemingly incapable of feeding or clothing herself! Since none of the other residents have a shred of responsibility, the onus of 'Mashiro Duty' falls to Sorata; what will become of Sorata and his latest stray, and will he ever achieve his goal of escaping Sakurasou?
Makoto Niwa has just moved from his rural hometown to live with his aunt and experience high school life in the big city first hand. Unfortunately, his dreams of an adolescence filled of dates and school activities are soon shattered by having to share his new home with Erio, his deluded cousin who thinks she's an alien and spends most of her time wrapped in a futon for protection! Now, in addition to enduring his aunt’s energetic attention and flirting awkwardly with the girls in his class, Makoto finds himself drawn into helping Erio rejoin regular society and stopping her 'alien' antics.
Wacky characters and insane antics are common themes in Denpa Onna and Sakurasou. Both include a male character living in a house with an abnormal female who needs special attention and care. Lots of comedic moments are included and of course, there's a bit of romance thrown in as well. If you like one, you're sure to like the other.
Both anime focus on the interactions of a regular highschool boy and a very "odd" female. They both have a lot of comedy and romantic undertones so they are similar in a lot of important ways. I'm sure you'll enjoy one if you enjoy the other so check them out!
At first after watching "Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko" I thought there was no anime comparable that could match the same type of comedy and the interestingly odd girl that the main guy has to take care of until "Sakurasou no pet..." aired.
Both animes have very eccentric female heroines and each show present their comedic antics in unique ways. Sakurasou is more of a drama though whereas Denpa Onna is alot more random overall.
Both of the shows start with the main character moving to another place and from there on he has to take care of an eccentric girl who doens't understand much of the world, the supporting cast is almost the same and both of the shows are comedy/romance/drama.
If you like crazy shows about nice-guy MCs and totally weird girls who have difficulty taking care of themselves without him, these two recs are like coffee and chocolate--they just go together.
In both series the male lead takes care of a girl who is a little "special". In Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo the guy is forced into this situation, but in Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko the guy becomes involved willingly. Both series have a healthy dose of comedy, but when it comes to romance and drama Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo has more to offer. On the other hand there is no tsundere to be found in Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko which might even things out.
Last, but not least male leads in both shows shown some potential in being able to keep conversation with total weirdoes and even girls (which more often than not tend to be one and the same in those shows). It should be noted that the guy from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko is much more skilled than the other (an than most of generic shounen leads).
To sum it up, because of many similar themes and some similar characters, it's very likely that you might like one of those two anime, if you liked the other.
Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for the fact that Taiga and Ryuuji have crushes on the other's good friend! With school rumors abounding, the duo must now work together to play matchmaker for each other. Who will end up with their true love?
Both seem like generic school romances at first, but their quirky characters, great comedy, and heartwarming scenes make each worth watching. Both are also really about people growing up and figuring out how to live their lives.
Both series are high school romcoms in which the male lead is made to take care of his somewhat helpless female classmate (or kouhai in case of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo). The key difference is the type of character the female lead is, in case of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo it's a kuudere and in case of Toradora! it's a tsundere. Aside from the main duo both series also feature a small cast of their friends who have romcom drama of their own. If you liked one show, odds are you'll like the other one as well.
They both have the same kind of feeling to them and have both have a group of friends that are all so diffrent and both have palmtop tiger mascots :P. I love both these animes
Both series involve a guy/girl main character duo, with the guy helping the girl do things in her daily life that she's not capable of doing on her own, as well as both series having an extremely awesome cast of characters with their own struggles with life and growing up, with romance, humor and lots of emotional moments.
Same studio. Similar characters. Similar feelings. Both are great.
If you liked one of them, you probably like both them.
Took me a while to find Sakurasou, but I am happy i found it.
While watching Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo, it's not hard to be reminded of Toradora! Both anime feature a diverse and colorful main cast who just can't seem to figure out this romance thing among themselves. Emotional character development drives both of these amazing school life series.
Being produced by the same staff is evident of their quality. Toradora and Sakurasou are up there in the high seats of romantic comedy shows that the other should appeal if one has left a positive remark on you.
Each show features a high-school setting and is woven with similar life drama that serves not to pad out the show, but to enrich it. Love is anything but simple, and they are alike in this regard, presenting dramatic tension and problems unrelated to the character's love interests.
Great writing with a strong cast on both fronts.
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
Both have a fantastic kuudere character. The story is basically about the story of the characters life.. Some thing may not possible to happen but both still worth to watch.. People who do love a genre of "slice of life" is a must to watch this anime
Both anime series consist of romance and a mix of comedy. The main character in both series are portaryed as the "normal" character that finds other''s actions to be odd.
These are two incredibly beautiful stories that have you emotionally moved throughout the entire show. Though Angel Beats has less Romance than Sakurasou, they are both very strong Dramas that never mention filler (ever, seriously) and fill in all the blanks with well done comedy and adventure. They start a little light hearted with some comedy and happy backstory but get into the thicker story fairly quickly. Both of them also take place in their own little worlds (be it figurative or not) so you get very comfortable with the setting. Angel Beats is my number one favorite anime of all time, and Sakurasou is right there with it. Both of them are absolute must watches for any Drama or Romance fan.
Both of these animes feature very likable casts amidst a sea of quirky comedy and impactful melodrama that will tug at the heartstrings. Each cast of characters struggles to come to terms with who they are and treats each other like family, with Angel Beats centering around death and Sakurasou around jealousy and perseverence. If one of these animes endeared you, the other will as well.
Art college: cradle of romance, home of bittersweet moments. Takemoto is struggling to find his direction in life, while his roommates Morita and Mayama are moving confidently - or recklessly - towards their goals. Enter Hagu-chan, the childlike and beautiful prodigy whom everyone admires; and thus the love triangles begin. Together, the trio explore the pain of first love, the trials of romantic conflict, and our loyalty to those annoying people who happen to be our closest friends.
Sakurasou attracts a younger audeince than Honey but both are very similar. Both include a school with an arts program and both have a lead girl who is a bit strange but is a prodigy in the arts. Also the lead guy contemplates his future while surrounded by many talented people who are a bit strange. The comdey element it there in both as well.
The two are practically mirror images of each other, right down to some of the characters' quirks and the comedy/drama elements.
Basically, both revolve around a group of friends' struggles with relationships and their lives/careers and can be pretty dramatic. However, Honey & Clover is a more mature, josei take on it while Sakurasou is aimed at a younger audience.
If you liked one, I can't see how you'd not like the other - even with the shounen/josei differences.
both of the female leads are hopeless girls who can't seem to take care of themselves but are brilliant artist who throw themselves into their work.
Both are art-school related dramas with comedy aspects, and romantic storylines (though Honey and Clover is arguably a much more emotional piece, and deals with the issues on a much more mature level/age range). If you liked the dramatic moments of "Pet Girl" but are looking for something that deals with simalar themes in a more dramatic and typically more realistic light (and if you don't mind crying a little) then this series is perfect for you.
Moritaka Mashiro feels as if life is passing him by; with no dreams or motivation, he trudges through day-to-day life. One day, after leaving his notebook behind, he returns to school and finds the smartest guy in class, Takagi, waiting for him. Takagi is happy to return the book, but on the condition that Mashiro agrees to become a mangaka with him. Though Mashiro initially declines, he soon reconsiders when he discovers that the girl he likes, Azuki, dreams of becoming a voice actress. And after promising that she can have the lead role if their manga is ever adapted into an anime, he suggests that they get married once they are both successful! Shockingly, she agrees to the proposal and Mashiro and Takagi embark on their quest to become manga artists.
While Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo has a bit more of a love triangle relationship than Bakuman, both are very similar in the characters drive to be the best at what they do. They both focus on the manga, anime industry as a profession, but Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo has gaming as well. They both give you a great feeling of giving your all and doing your best to strive for your goals.
Both of these shows are about doing everything it takes to achieve a dream. Some people are naturally talented whicle others have to fight for every success, but there is more behind these people than appears on the surface, and both of these shows highlight that beautifully. Both shows have unlikely, accidental friendships that develop into deep relationships (romantic and platonic), but they emphasize how much people can care for each other and learn from each other. Sakurasou has more romance and comedy, while Bakuman is much more technical about how the manga world works, but each of these shows is much more than they appear to be and are both enjoyable and fulfilling.
I'm certain. If you find Sakurasou or Bakuman interesting, you should the other, too. Both anime are about chasing dreams and working hard to make it true.
