Princess Princess

It’s never easy being a transfer student, especially when transferring in the middle of the year. Certain schools have their own traditions and ways of doing things – something Kouno Tooru discovers when the student council of the Fujimori high school insists that he dress like a girl! Along with two other boys chosen for their remarkable beauty, Kouno is given the task of brightening up the dull days of an all-boys high school. The rewards offered by the student council are great, but the life of a “Princess” turns out to be more work than Kouno had bargained for...

If you enjoyed watching Hatenkou Yuugi then you'd be pleased to watch Special A and vice-versa.Although in general, Special A and Hatenkou Yuugi are different due to the setting of place, occupation and reason of the anime plot, there are similarities between these two animes.

Now the first thing that gives the whole similaity point away is that THEY ARE BOTH OPTIMISTIC people. Very happy infact Rahzel from HY reminded me of Hikari from SA within 6 minutes into the first episode. Both girls tend to look on the bright side a little too much which causes companions of theirs to nut at them. They are both strong and excel in physical skills. There is a small age different between these two girls and you will also realise that Rahzel and Hikari look very much alike, with long black hair and the slim frame.

Special A generalizes in school life and the goal of beating the love interest in academic, physical and other abilities althugh always failing to do so, whereas Hatenkou Yuugi is based around a girl with a rough past, forced to see the world by her foster father and ending up with two companions whom although like oil and water, seem to be tied together in surprising harmony.

Special A is the choice for a lighter read whereas Hatenkou holds a serious and more negative story withing another story. Both animes are supported greatly by comedy and you will not be disappointed by one anime more than another if it comes to funny scenes. Although both animes are light in romance and not heavily into love, Special A provides you with more romance scenes between the heroine and her love interest than Hatenkou Yuugi which is more about getting to know other while encountering a journey that changes there lives.

If you liked La Corda D'Oro, you would also like Special A (or vice versa).

Both protagonists are beautiful and talented. They never give up, and they give hapiness to everyone around them.

The art in the animes is something to look forward to. Special A had more laugh-out-loud moments, but La Corda had scenes that made you wan't to blush.

Each character was well thought out. La Corda is focused on a main character, where Special A is focused on many.

If you liked one, you'll like the other.

Similar to Special A because the main character is clueless to the feelings of guy who likes her. Like Tenema she constantly says things to make the guy think she gets it and then it turns out she still has no clue.  Special A and School Rumble both feature episodes that are some what random.
