Sukisho and Gakuen Heaven go hand and hand: both are yaoi/shounen-ai fests that use the gimmick of an all-male academy to inject a manifold of bishounen into the cast. These two series offer believable romances between male characters; Sukisho tends to be more hilarious even if it gets darker while Gakuen Heaven is cute and mostly harmless. Anyone who enjoyed one of these series is bound to appreciate the other.
Both Sukisho and Gakuen Heaven take place in a school setting and have a wide variety of different and entertaining characters. They also have roughly the same amount of shonen-ai content in them. Also, the main characters in both have something from their past that they cannot remember and they slowly recall it over the course of the series.
These two shows remind me of one another quite a bit and if you liked one, you'll probably enjoy the other.
Both anime have a dose of funny situations and take place in a school setting, and have the same amusing feeling. Sukisho has a more complex background story, whereas Gakuen Heaven is more centered on the relationship between the characters. Gakuen Heaven is also is a bit funnier and has a bigger variety of characters.
Gakuen Heaven and Sukisho are light shounen ai comedy series with a high school setting. Sukisho isn't very good and is a little more confusing, but it's got a bit more shounen ai scenes, which makes it okay. If you liked one, try out the other.
Both of these lovely BL series were spawned from dating sim games with deeper plots than they let on. In the anime, they manage to keep the same light hearted feel, and have their serious tone as well!
Both shows focus around boys love. Also, both involve the school romance situation. Both also have very attractive characters with interesting relationships. While Gakuen Heaven is on the lighter side of things, they're both similar in their ways.
Both of these series are set in an all boys school and focus on the relationship between the two central characters. Gakuen Heaven and Sukisho both have a lot of comedy in them but they also contain a fair bit of drama and uncovering of secrets from the past. If you liked this in one then check out the other.
Both set in schools with an unlikely protagonist surrounded by a plethora of beautiful bishounen, Sukisho and Gakuen Heaven are what I considered to be the weaker in the shounen-ai category. Although, what they lack in story, they make up for with some very sexy and handsome men. However, both seem to have a large fanbase and I think fans of one will definitely enjoy the other.
Both are shounen-ai about an all boy's school, were all of the boys presumably go prison gay for each other. It's a plethora of bishounen on bishounen relationships, and the main couple of both even happen to be childhood friends. If you enjoy one, you're sure to enjoy the other.

Gravitation and Sukisho develop the growing attraction between two male characters with plenty of comedy thrown into the mix. Both can be rather random and off the wall but have a darker undertone that becomes prevalent in the later episodes. If you like shounen-ai that actually delivers a solid story and has vibrant character designs, both series are a very entertaining take on boys' love.
This is a great shounen-ai, and you get the same feel as Sukisho, except less serious. The story is a tad less complex, but it also has that cutesy feel that you get when you watch this show.
Gravitation is a boys love anime as well. They both have the loveably stereotypical uke/seme relationship. Both deal with humor as well as romance and drama.
If you like a bit of comedy mixed in with your boy love then both of these series are for you. Both have a good amount of drama and plot mixed in with the comedic side, so if you enjoyed that in either Sukisho or Gravitation then it's worth checking out the other.

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...
Yet another pair of boys' love games turned anime, Princess Princess and Sukisyo have a very similar style of cute humour (accentuated with scenes of chibi-fied characters), pretty boys, and suggestion to feed the imagination.
While Sukisyo doesn't cut corners in portraying the love between men (come to think of it, I don't remember seeing even one female person in the show...), Princess Princess is more subtle, despite the main plot device being boys in drag, and settles for innuendo to indicate the shounen ai factor.
Like Sukisyo, Princess Princess features an all-male cast in an all-male school full of crossdressing, fanservice, and the intent to slash. Princess Princess is more ambiguous about its pairings than Sukisyo, but if you liked the light-hearted, episodic boy-love comic-relief plot of Sukisyo, you'll definately enjoy Puri Puri.
Both Princess Princess and Sukisho both share a siilar sort of tone. Both are set in an all boys school and focus on the relationships between the central characters. As can be expected there is a good dose of shounen-ai in both series and they also share a similar style of comedy. If you liked one then it is worth trying the other.
Princess Princess is more in the lines of implied shounen-ai than actual shounen-ai. For instance, the whole of the school isn't seemingly gay... they just worship the girliest looking guys in the school. Most of the guys in the school of Princess Princess seem to actually be straight.
Princess Princess is more along the lines of comedy, but both are centered in an all-boys school and have heavy guy-on-guy scenes. In Sukisho it's just more apparent.

He is entirely alone until Soubi appears, saying the words he most wants to hear, but refuses to believe: “I love you and will do anything for you.” Flung into a world of intrigue and magic, where bonded pairs battle and only Soubi can fight for him, he struggles to find his brother’s killer. Yet he must also face the most bitter question of all: if you can't remember who you were, does that mean you don't know who you are?
Sukisho and Loveless are shounen-ai titles with a twisted plot that hinges on tragic past events that shadow the narrative. While Sukisho is overall more light hearted its later episodes match the darkness in Loveless. Both series have very smooth artwork that conveys emotional attachments easily; and both take a non-graphic approach to boys' love with plenty of heart-felt disclosures and a stress on character interactions.
Both Loveless and Sukisho are about a guy who is having problems coping with his past, while getting himself wrapped up in difficult situations with the ones who love him most. They are highly loveable characters and once you start to watch the anime, you won't be able to tear yourself away from them.

If you like comedy with your shonen-ai, you'll like these series. Both have an air of mystery about them, but they have their cute, funny moments, too.
Both animes have similar groups of friends, that make you smile or laugh, while the main characters are looking for the truth about themselves.
