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?
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
After having lived elsewhere for several years, Sana returns to the town in which he grew up in, and quickly begins to reacquaint himself to his surroundings and new high school. While there, Sana runs into his four childhood friends: Shuu, Shuri, Aoi, and Nanaka; but for some strange reason Nanaka gives him the cold shoulder. As he goes about his new daily life, can Sana rebuild his friendship with Nanaka while trying to deal with a troubling secret from his past?
Ah, the troubles of high school life. On the outside both series seem very peaceful and energetic, but slowly they unfold into very well done slice-of-life romances. Shuffle and Myself; Yourself do an excellent job on portraying how each character has their own personal problems and how they deal with them along with the rest of the cast. For those who like slice-of-life and drama mixed in with a bit of comedy and great character developement make sure to watch both of these!
There is trouble with high school life in Myself; Yourself and Shuffle; also with the relationship problems the characters face with each other. They both spend a great deal of time portraying the main characters personal problems and how they try and deal with the situations they find themselves in while being slightly comical throughout.
These titles each are romance and comedies set in highschool which explore some of the deeper, more shocking elements of life. If you want something that goes for some more shocking themes that many explore in highschool (or just throughout) while mixing in a lot of lighthearted love and comedy, then these series work well together.
Major slice of life themed anime in where some may be able to relate to it personally. Such as myself. Highly recommended if you want a nice balance between love and friendship and it makes you think of realistic situations.
Narumi Takayuki is a normal high school student with a crush on Mitsuki, the school's swim star -- that is, until he receives a profession of love from his friend Haruka. But amidst the beautiful budding relationship, tragedy strikes when an accident occurs, turning Narumi’s life upside-down. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is a compelling drama about one man, and the choices he must make for love.
Very powerful drama and if you liked Shuffle and want an anime up to the same par then Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (KGNE) will not dissapoint. KGNE offers the same visual quality as Shuffle and similarly has a boy who must make a choice between girls. The role of health in one of the girls plays a part as too as it also does in Shuffle. Though it doesn't have any fantasy elements or comedy as Shuffle does you will not be dissapointed to follow up shuffle with KGNE.
In Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and Shuffle the same dramatic quality is portrayed in each and the main guy has to make a choice between the girls in his life. Kimi ga Nozomu Eien does not have the fantasy elements that Shuffle has, however, there the same power of romance in both.
Shuffle! and Kimi ga Nozomu Eien are both centered around the topic love. Shuffle! touches the subject at first from a very comedian side with a harem, but later on it changes to a tragic love story which would never gues by the first half of the anime. On the other hand Kimi ga Nozomu Eien doesn't lose any time and goes directly from the second episode to the dramatic love.
Kazuki Shikimori is a 17-year old junior studying at Aoi Academy, an elite school for the magically gifted. However, unlike enrollment to the school would suggest, his magical prowess is below-average. In fact, he can only use magic eight times in his life, or he will die. But not all is lost: Kazuki's family tree includes the latent genetic material for magical greatness. After that information leaks out, Kazuki suddenly becomes the most popular male student in the school, and girls from powerful magician families begin chasing him to get his genes.
Both Maburaho and Shuffle! are "magical harem in a school", and feature a main female lead who knew the hero in his childhood, lots of panty shots, and things blowing up offscreen.
Maburaho and Shuffle! are both romance comedies dealing with a magical element. Both Kazuki and Rin are your relatetively average guys who just happen to have loads of girls with magical powers drop in on them. Maburaho focuses a little more on comedy than Shuffle!, but some parts of the shows almost mirror each other drama-wise.
Apon veiwing both Shuffle and Maburaho I can see many things that would attract the veiwers from one to watch the other. For instance both seem to be an all out harem anime mixed with a few other tones. I had a good laugh watching both from the drama and comety in Maburaho to the daughter handing-out kami-sama of shuffle. they both have there own twists and terns so i recomend you check them out!
When the students of class 2-A at the all-girls Mahora Academy head back to school, they are expecting a new year as usual. What they get is a new homeroom teacher... who's 10 years old! As if being a genius isn't enough, Negima is a mage. As part of his training to be a Magister Magi, he must succeed at teaching - without anyone finding out he's a magician! Can Negi keep his talents a secret from the girls who just adore the cutest new addition to their academy? Through demon attacks, magical enemies, and English tests, Negi will put all his talents to the test to be the best teacher he can and achieve his goal of Magister Magi.
If you liked Negima, you'd like Shuffle because both anime series are about love and friendship and also about making a choice. Also in both anime, magic plays a certain role; in Negima! it appears the most.
Both series contain magic, both series contain romance and both series contain comedy. Both series' titles end with a '!' too, but that's irrelevent. However, Negima! has a little more adventure and a lot more girls involved. So if you liked Shuffle! but want something with a little more action, I would recommend it.
Both Negima and Shuffle are about friendship and love, and are about girls who must make choices. Also, you can find the element of magic in both series; though in Negima, magic is a bit more present. If you like one of them, you will almost certainly like the other one too.
