Kuragehime

Kuragehime

Tsukimi is an otaku and jellyfish enthusiast whose only means of coping with the world is to reject it: she and her friends live in a house they declare a man-free zone, generally avoid 'stylish people', and spend their days blissfully bonding over geeky rituals. As misfortune would have it, their convenient existence is about to be turned on its head by the arrival of Kuranosuke, a seemingly beautiful young woman who is actually a beautiful young man. While he may be strange even by their standards, Kuranosuke embodies everything Tsukimi secretly dreams of being - a princess as ethereal as a floating jellyfish - and promises the kind of mind-boggling adventures only possible when geek meets chic!

At first glance these two shows don't appear to have much in common, but they are surprisingly similar in their emotional impact.  Both of them have a female lead who lives on the outskirts of society, but comes into the spotlight in some way.  Both girls are helped along by an incredibly attractive and wealthy male lead who bends over backwards to help her, falling for her in the process.  Both shows are also shojos that differ drastically from the standard high school romance story that you've seen a hundred times, while still throwing in plenty of fun and romantic moments.  Plotwise, these shows differ greatly, but if you like shows that are character driven, people that go totally and outragously over the top to get what they want, or if you fangirl squeal over a man's unrequitted crush, then these shows are both for you.

Skip Beat and Bihada Ichizoku both refer around the entertainment industry. Bihada is about make-up industry and beautiful skin of a wealthy family that show up constantly in the entertainment world, where Skip Beat is based on acting.

Saiunkoku Monogatari

Saiunkoku Monogatari

In an ancient and mythological land called Saiunkoku, the people have begun to recover from a period of war and famine; thus, when an official from the imperial court offers the impoverished and beautiful Shuurei more money than she could ever dream of in return for a favor, she jumps at the chance. What she doesn’t count on, however, is being asked to become a concubine to the recluse Emperor and help him transform into a better leader. What’s more, the Emperor shows little intelligence, seems to have no interest in ruling, and is rumored to prefer men. One thing’s for certain: Shuurei has her work cut out for her!

Both are about a strong female protagonist who has been wronged and are dealing with the aftermath of that. They are also both involved with a love triangle where one of the boys is mean and immature and arrogant and loved by tons of women. The other boy is mean at first but gets better as time goes on and is also loved by tons of women.

To-Y

To-Y

To-Y is the handsome singer of GASP, an indie band with a bad reputation. But mere days before their first big gig, To-Y is approached by an agent who wants him to be the next big thing...a ridiculously popular teen idol. Offers like that don't come everyday, and the music industry is harsh to those who try to rebel against it. But can he sell out and abandon his band mates when they're on the brink of fame? Exactly. And after that, it becomes a matter pitting artistic integrity and rebellion against commercial easy-listening with full industry backing...

Rivalries abound in both shows, Skip Beat! and To-y highlight the struggles endured in the climb to fame. This includes dealing with rivals, inner turmoil, and other drama. If you like the band/fame aspect in one show you should give the other a shot.
