Kaede is a devoted high school student who lives with her adopted brother Rin. She holds a quiet confidence that one day, when Rin finally starts showing interest in sex, he will make the obvious choice and turn to his loving sister. But what Kaede wasn’t counting on was the lords of heaven and hell coming to Earth, wanting Rin to mate with their nubile daughters! Rin, like any teenager would, takes full advantage of his newly acquired harem; but how long can he keep up his carefree, boxed-lunches-on-the-rooftop lifestyle, as the horde of girls on his tail grows?

Rosario to Vampire

Rosario to Vampire

Fifteen-year-old Tsukune Aono is average in every way; he has no hobbies, less-than-stellar grades and he's even flunked his high school entrance exam. His parents have managed to enroll him in a school, but it's no ordinary school! Tsukune will be attending the Youkai Academy, a place where monsters learn how to co-exist with humans! As the werewolves, vampires, witches and other monsters are required to retain their human forms, Tsukune - the lone human - is able to avoid their bloodthirsty gazes. However, he quickly attracts the attention of a number of devilish beauties including the vampire Moka, a busty succubus and even a young witch! It seems Tsukune's average life isn't so average anymore!

Both series involdes a guy with girls falling for him left and right. where the guys is protected by the girls more so in rosario to vampire then in shuffle!


For the guy in Rosario to Vampire and Shuffle he is nicely protected by the girls with the three of them falling in love with him and vying for his attention. Both have very funny comical episodes when the girls are trying to get the attention of the guy.


Both anime have strong elements of fantasy; Shuffle! deals with gods, demons, and humans, while Rosario deals with a lone human guy in a school full of monsters.

The guys, though, are radically different. Although both guys are fully aware of what is going on around them, Shuffle's Rin is more in control of himself and his situation than Tsukune is.

And, while both are comedic, ecchi romps, Rosario takes the prize. For its "camera angles" the show could just as easily have been called Vampire Pantsu.


These animes are incredibly funny. The girls are cute. They are both perverse. The girls come from different worlds as well. They both have a fantasy side to them.

Rin and Tsukune are the center of these great harems.


Both Rosario to Vampire and Shuffle! have a male protagonist who is liked/loved by several girls, each with their own personality and problems. Both Tsukune (Rosario) and Rin (Shuffle!) want to stay friends with the girls and help them with their problems, without offending any of the other girls around them.

Both Rosario and Shuffle have their fair share of fantasy, magic and comedy.


both are harem shows involing monsters who totally fall for an everyman main character who unlike the females who are attracted to him  is quite a normal human. im sure if you like one you'll enjoy the other


In both anime the male protagonist is being chased by non-human girls who want him. The relationships are blunt for both, but its very well done in a comedic tone.


Both series are quite similar. They feature a guy surrounded by some cute girls fighting for his attention. Both involve some fantasy elements (gods and demons in Shuffle!, monsters in R+V). Comedy elements are quite good too.

However, Shuffle! has final and satisfying ending while second season of R+V does not end the series in my opinion.


Both of these are on my top ten list and i would highly recommend either if you like supernatural harem comedies with plenty of ecchi


Both animes deal with a Male character with many potential interests of women. Both have supernatural characters. Theyre very similar.

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...

Shuffle! is similar to Clannad in a few ways. One being that there's one guy surrounded by girls and all have their own problems. Tomoya tries to help all he can just like Rin.


When comparing two anime programs one must not concern themselves with petty concerns such as genre or settings. Instead what one must consider is the quality and feelings of the anime. Clannad is without a doubt the most powerful anime I have ever seen, if you do not tear up at least four or five times during the course of the show (second season included of course) then you probably don’t have a heart. Shuffle, while not quite as heavy, does portray a similar range of deep emotional topics with a smattering of side splitting comedy. Characters that evoke true empathy and stories that touch the depths of the soul make both of these animes true classics.


The group dynamics of both Clannad and Shuffle! have similar feelings to them if you like one you will probably like the other


The way both animes start off driven mainly by humour and go onto become emotionally charged is very similar. Both main characters help the female cast grow and develop. Clannad is better and deeper especially when you include the afterstory, so if you liked shuffle i reckon youll love Clannad. If you found Clannad too emotional, and didnt like the family elements of the show,want something which focuses more on romance, and like cartoon boob's then shuffles deffiniately for you.


These series are each harems based in high school that do a good job of mixing romance with comedy and a few heavier elements that are usually not used in these genres. If you want a slightly deeper rom-com type series, these fit well.


Both of these shows revolve around a guy and a bunch of girls, in which he must choose one of them. They have comedy, but also drama. There are magical themes, but are very true to life as well. Some of the characters seem alike in both shows too.


Clannad mey be a bit deeper when i comes to the emotional  parts, but both of these touch your heart.  Both are equally comedic and both have a school/harem aspect to them.  If you thought Shuffle! was good you might even like this one more. Or if you thought Clannad was good Shuffle! may be interesting for you.


Both have decently strong male leads(as in, they try really hard to help and keep happy all the girls). Shuffle! has more fantasy elements. They both have you tearing up at times, but Clannad will make you cry. If you don't, you're just not a person, sorry.

Ichigo 100%

Ichigo 100%

Manaka Junpei is an average guy who has only two dreams in life: to become a filmmaker and to find the girl of his dreams. Luckily for him, after a chance encounter on the roof of the school, he has a lead on the girl! She was wearing strawberry panties. Unfortunately, he can't figure out which one of the five girls chasing him it was; but he gets plenty of chances to find out the color-of-the-day in his Cinderella search for his one true love!

Similar plot of one guy many girls wanting him. The boy has the hardest time of choosing one of the beautiful ladies. How unfortunenate for him (rolls eyes*).. ^_^... anyways the fans of shuffle! won't be dissapointed with this ecchi/romance/comedy!

Although both are harem anime, Ichigo 100% is almost pure comedic fun while Shuffle! has a more dramatic tone to it. However, the main difference comes in the forms of the two male protagonists - Manaka and Rin. Manaka is a complete idiot who is not even always sure when the girls are trying to get his attention. Rin, on the other hand, knows what is coming his way and diplomatically navigates through it all. The contrast between the two is refreshing.


There both light hearted love storys with epithisis on heart pounding situations(sexual tension). Great anime for anyone whos interested.


While Shuffle has a more mature dramatic approach and Ichigo 100@ is purely comedic based both anime series include loads of laughter and fun for the male protagonists conveniently surrounded by girls vying for his attention.


Both of these are harem comedies where all the girls know the score but there is very little competition between them (which I think makes it a little dull).  Shuffle has a light supernatural aspect and more nudity.

Now these two anime my seem different at first and at the start they are very different, kanon starts and stays serious while shuffle starts silly and ends really serious. I will say that if you can handle a fox being a girl you should be able to handle girls from other worlds.

Now the reason i would recommend someone watch both series is they both have really strong and will designed male leads that are easy to watch. also once shuffle gets serious at about half way through i believe some of the arc's are as good or better then some of the kanon arc's.

So all i can say is watch both of them you wont be sorry you did.


Kanon 2006 and Shuffle each have a fantasy quality associated with them; Kanon involving strange happenings around the school such as transformation and spirits while Shuffle involves aliens from other worlds going to school on Earth. The romantic side of each of the male leads is awkward at times but develops and matures as the series goes on.


These series are each harems based in high school that do a good job of mixing romance with comedy and a few heavier elements that are usually not used in these genres. If you want a slightly deeper rom-com type series, these fit well.



Shuffle! and Kanon both appear to be just more harem comedy anime on the surface, with girls that are from fantasy backgrounds, but both anime feature characters that have much deeper, intricate stories that unravel as you watch them. Both anime have surprising twists that send you on an emotional roller coaster ride and really connect you to the characters as they go through their struggles. Shuffle! is a bit more oriented on romance and a group of girls chasing one guy scenario, but they both have decent storylines that have what I felt were rather satisfying endings.


If you enjoyed this anime and the story it was set under, you would enjoy shuffle as well. Shuffle may have more echhi then Kanon does, but the main characters are similar.

They both try to help each heroine in any way they can. Both anime also keep you on the edge when you are wondering which heroine they would end up with.

While "Shuffle!" 's storyline is a lot more straightforward, they are still similar in harem style.

Both of the anime have a mysterious character said upon in them that has a strange past.

Love Hina

Love Hina

Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?

You would like Lova Hina because it is more or less like Shuffle!.  It is the story of boy that is loved by some girls, and also has comedy and some perverted scenes. If you liked Shuffle! you'll also like Love Hina; they are almost the same thing.


Shuffle! offers magic wielding female characters and Love Hina offers unfortunate, hilarious, perverted situations. Don't worry, there are many similarities including a harem aspect that both titles offer. Particular women in Shuffle! have cared for and loved the leading male character, and then one day two new women appear. These two women want to marry the male lead; that's not asking a lot now is it? In Love Hina, the leading male character has to run an all girls' inn, which provides for comedy, but also provides the viewers with romance. Love Hina does one thing that I despise, and that is the presence of love or romance, but never the open confession. Shuffle! does have numerous open confessions of love but also humor.


For Shuffle fans Love Hina is definitely a series worth checking out as its a great harem series. Though Love Hina is definitely a bit more campy than Shuffle.


Both these animes are harems but slightly different.

Rin is a very sweet guy that lives with cute Kaede and he is the envy of all the boys in the school. One day two girls come to the school that are out of this world...litteraly. Both of them want to marry Rin. This show is packed with laughs, panty shots, and some nudity. Sometimes it does get really serious.

Keitaro on the other hand is a loser who can't get into Tokyo U. He's sweet but awkward and a little bit of a perv. He gets to live at an all girls dorm and manage the place. Lucky him! This too is funny but not as much nudity in it. It has more of a plot.


I would highly reccomend both for eachother. The resoning by this desion is that both anime's are for one, a harem. the difference between the 2 is that one struggles in school while holding up a promise to a girl he cant even remember (love hina); and one guy who struggles to find the girl he truly cares about and loves with all his heart, (shuffle!) other then that, the comedy, and all around awesomeness resideds in both, so if you liek one its definite that you'll like the other =D
