Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
Ouran High School Host Club and School Rumble share a high school setting. Both are comedies with romance with thrown into the mix. If you like one you shouldn't pass up an opportunity to watch the other.
Apart from the school setting, both series feature outrageous surreal visual gags, sarchastic, self-referential humour and a large cast.
If you like series that poke fun at the genre with abrupt style shifts and wierd characters but still play the stories straight and have compelling character development then both series are for you. Don't let the Shoujo reverse harem tag on Ouran scare you - this is hillarious for both sexes.
These two just complement each other. The classic school parody along with the comedic relief is key two both School Rumble and Ouran Highschool Host Club. Even though I preferred Ouran more, I still enjoyed very much the anime :)
For Akane Suzumiya, letting go of her memories and moving forward has been difficult. Luckily (more like unluckily) for her, the loud and confident baseball powerhouse Gouda "Ace" Jouji has just transferred to school, and what's better (worse?!), he's just proposed to her in the middle of class after their first meeting! Can Akane outmaneuver and escape the persistent Gouda, or is she doomed to a pairing she cannot refuse?
While a lot of the wacky romantic comedies get their jokes out of strange situations and the incredicle shyness of the characters. Akane Maniax and School Rumble are great examples of how a never-give-up attitude can be just as rediculously funny.
Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
Quite basically, if you love school life romance, then you'll love this series. Though there's a difference in how Clannad and School Rumble handle the relationships, the amusing aspect of watching teenagers stumbling through life is nonetheless alive and kicking in both.
As a lover of slice of life, romantic comedy animes, both shows offer the best of those genres and then some. These animes are very much alike: both take place in a school setting, both have characters you'll fall in love with, and have amazing stories. However, despite how much both shows have their similarities, there are clear distinctions that differenciate them. School Rumble is more of the childish side of growing up while Clannad on the other hand focuses the more serious side of growing up. In the end, both are great animes, very funny yet, very thought provoking, and offer life lesson/morals. Both are definaltely worth the watch!
It's the first day of high school, and plenty of school clubs are doing their best to recruit new members. However, for ditzy Yui, none of them seem to fit the bill. However, when she accidentally signs up to join the light music club, Yui begins a hilarious adventure to become a world class guitarist! There's just one problem: she's never played the guitar before in her life! Joined by bassist Mio, drummer Ritsu and keyboardist Tsugumi, Yui and the gang will juggle their studies with buying instruments, learning how to read music and even performing in the school festival, all in the hopes of someday becoming a successful band!
Both are comedy anime and are about school life. At both Anime I LOLed. Both anime take place on school for the most part and in both Anime there is a vacation (or was the vacation/trip in School Rumble 2??)
K-ON! and School Rumble are two similar High School based anime. Both anime have casts that are in high school and are fairly crazy. The lead girl in each anime has the "airhead" complex and a sister to keep them heading in the right direction. Even though school rumble is a little more crazy than K-ON!, i believe that people who watch the one will enjoy the other. The comedy of both anime is not notch!
Everyone around Kousaka seems to adore cats, but due to his allergies the teen can’t stand them. So when he wakes up one day and can hear what every feline is saying, Kousaka is annoyed to say the least. His new “gift,” it seems, is the result of accidentally breaking an enshrined statue of a cat; and what’s worse, Kousaka must atone for his sin and appease the vengeful spirit by aiding one hundred kitties-in-distress, or become a furry feline himself! Now, amidst helping various cats with mundane and trivial issues, Kousaka must try to dispel the jinx and attempt to salvage his self-respect – not to mention his love life - along the way.
Both fantastic animes with alot of hilarious scenes and cute romance. I strongly recommend both if you love comedy :D !!!!
Both are quirky, light-hearted and rather tasteful shows with just enough of an abundance of comedy to break up the rather cute romances. A touch of modest seriousness and/or drama is thrown in here and there, but is usually soon followed by much welcomed comic relief. School Rumble is probably the funnier of the two and will last you longer, but Nyan Koi! is short, sweet, to the point, and easy to get into. The biggest difference is Nyan Koi's theme on cats and emphasis on the supernatural while School Rumble is themed around a wide cast of characters' misadventures involving High School Social Life. Both are fantastic and some of the best their respective genres have to offer.
