If you liked the Skip Beat! anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Ever since they met, emotionless Hotaru and ditzy Mikanhave been best friends, and are virtually inseparable-- that is, until Hotaru is invited to attend a strange school far away, a school for those who have special abilities known as "Alice". Unable to be separated from her friend, Mikan soon sets out on a mission to find her. After traveling to a city far away, she finds Hotaru at last, but gets much more than she bargained for. Now, she is lost in a school full of kids with strange powers, unusual animals, and has secured an immediate rivalry with the toughest little punk in town!
While Gakuen Alice is taking place in elementary school, and Skip Beat in the entertaiment industry (with heroine being around end of high school age) they both have the theme of a girl who is idiot at the first sight, but actually is hard working cheerful person that changes every1 around her. Both have the male protagonist hating the heroine at the beginning and then gradually starting to get drawn into her pace
Even though they are very different plots, both girls are indeed clumsy and seem dumb at first but after a while their efforts give fruit and they become the hero.. for a while :P They also start out with the male protaginist hating them but because they are amazing peoploe the guys end up likeing them.. little by little :P
BOTH ARE AMAZING ANIME!! PLEASE WATCH <3
Both are anime about a hard working girl, that will do alot to get what she wants. They both also have unexpected talents that they discover (be it acting or actual magical powers). They are also both involved in a love triangle. The "main guy" of said love triangles are both fairly cold and mean to the protagonist, though deep down inside, you know they like her.
Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...
Skip Beat and Lovely Complex both have the same type of over done humor that can't help but make you laugh. If you enjoyed Kyoko's hilarious emotions you will love the comedy of Lovely Complex.
They both are funny love stories you would really like, and there are a lot of emotional scenes too not only funny. This is the best combination for a love story.
i also think their same in the love story..she only realized in the end of her love and her comedic character and funny way to solve her own problem
The studious and uptight Chiaki is well-known as the top pianist of his school, and dreams of becoming a world-class conductor like his idol, Viera; but his fear of flying (which makes studying abroad impossible) combined with a recent break-up and dismissal from his piano instructor causes that future to seem both bleak and unlikely. After collapsing outside of his apartment, drunk, Chiaki inadvertently meets a young woman named Nodame who, while quite talented at the piano, is unclean, clumsy, and haphazard. Despite being almost polar opposites, the two begin to grow closer and work, together, to overcome the obstacles in their careers.
I think it's very possible that you'll like that anime too, because...
... both anime have eccentric yet talented female leads, who have their own share of self-doubts though.They are not annoying like girls from many other anime tend to be.
... the main male lead is a genius and most of the time acts aloof but likes to tease.
... the comedy is actually something to laugh about too.
... many new chars are gradually introduced, making the plot interesting.
Its same way: energetic girl with talented-all-wanted charismatic guy as senpay-lover.
Even Nodame is ended and Skip beat not...so maybe this is difference but...i think you will like it
I'm not completely sure what draws these series together in my mind, but it is probably sense of comedy in each series is extremely similar and extremely well done.
The government has passed the Media Betterment Act, establishing a military police force to stop the spread of "negative influences harmful to society;" and in response, libraries have organized their own military units to protect freedom of expression. After being saved by a Library Defense Force agent in a bookstore, Kasahara is inspired to enlist in the Library Defense Force. Although she proves quite athletic and capable, she must endure the harsh but meaningful training of her instructor and superior officer, Doujou. As she learns how to be a good soldier, she participates in LDF operations, helping protect literary freedom for everyone.
The character in both of these anime is trying to become good at what they do, although the reasons differ somewhat. They both have some trouble with the world, this being angry at an institution or just plain angry. There is a male character in both series that supports the main protagonist with words of encouragement, although it will not always be recieved as such.
The female protagonists in Library Wars and Skip Beat have an upbeat personality even though their current situation may be relatively bleak, they always see the sunshine at the end. They strive to make it to the top of their respective fields as the main male characters help them along the way without the female characters knowing.
skip beat and Toshokan Sensou are simalar in way to me because of how the heroines are so alike. their both tall when you look at their apearences, but they both hate thier instuctors at first but they gradually start to have feelings and start liking each other.
for the hero of the story their hieghts are completly different. tall-short.lol! but they both affected the heroines past. they were the people who helped the heroines chose and make choices.
if you liked the humor in skip beat or if its the other way around you will love these seies!
Kotoko Aihara has always been in love with Naoki Irie; he’s tall, handsome, and rumored to be the most intelligent student in Japan – who wouldn’t be? Only one thing stands in the way of a relationship with Irie: Kotoko is ditzy and is at the bottom set of her school, and Irie-kun hates nothing more than ditzy, stupid girls. When disaster strikes and Kotoko is forced to move in with Irie-kun’s family, she suddenly sees her chance to bridge the gap. After all, even cool, super-intelligent guys must have a soft spot, right?
Upbeat and optimistic heroine? Check.
Tsundere male lead? Check.
Endless moments of "Just kiss her already!" ? CHECK!
Though these two series end up in very different directions, I think with such a similar set-up it would be difficult to enjoy one and not the other. Check it out!
Both have an very upbeat and persistant protagonist that will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Both of the male leads are very handsom, sought out men that refuse to show their feelings for the protagonist, even to the point of being pretty mean to them.
Other than that, the animation is pretty similar, and they both have a similar overall feel. I am honestly shocked that more people haven't made this recommendation yet.
