Megumi was a normal kid. He enjoyed getting into fights and mixing it up, and one day he did so in defense of a wizard who was being attacked by bullies. His reward was a magical book that was supposed to grant his wish. The mischievous demon inside the book decided to play a prank on Megumi, though, and instead of turning him into "a man among men," he became a girl. Fast forward to five years later, and Megumi is now entering high school, a tumultuous time for even normal teenagers, let alone a girl who is trying to figure out how become a guy again...
Ranma, raised to be a man among men, has a bit of a problem: he is half woman! While training in China he fell into a strange magic spring at Jusenkyo. Now, he is eternally cursed to change into a beautiful woman whenever he is hit by cold water, but that may be the least of his problems; his father has betrothed him to marry! There's never a dull day for Ranma as he attempts to find a cure for his curse, train to become stronger, and grapple with the fact that half of himself may be more feminine than his fiancée!
Two comedic genderbenders with a lot of craziness and some romance thrown in - could these two animes be any more similar? If you like one, you're sure to like the other.
Similar in that both involve gender confusion and multiple love possibilities. There is also the supernatural eliment in both such as magic and the fighting though more fighting in ranma and more realistic fighting in cheeky angel. Personally i find angel to be enjoable and short and ranma to be a long and funny series that had possibilities to be even longer had they felt the need.
both of these are great comedy gender benders and should be watched. if you liked one you will love the other
With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...
These shows both have a main characters introduced as a delinquent who is actually a really good guy. Onizuka and Genzo are very similar characters and they give the shows a similar feel.
The average Tsukushi Makino attends the snobby, elite Eitoku Academy, which is dominated by the Flower Four (F4) – the sons of the most powerful families. Like the rest of her classmates, Tsukushi keeps a low profile until one day she can stand it no more! For her obstinance, the F4 declare war and it's Tsukushi against all. In the middle of it all, she finds herself drawn strangely close to two of the F4; they might not be as bad as they seem. With her heart torn between two boys, will Tsukushi be able to find the love she desires?
Both of these shows have a very similar setting to them. An aggressive and outspoken female lead, and a very silly and madly-but-openly in love male lead. They are each with a school settings and a great cast of primary characters. Tenchi no Konamaiki is more about adventure and a common goal, whereas Hana Yori Dango is primarily a romance.
There’s no denying that Mizuho is beautiful. Normally that might be a bit of a disadvantage seeing as he is an average sort of boy who enjoys sports and games. However, his beloved grandfather has just passed away, and the will includes a strange request; his grandfather wants him to become closer to his mother's memory by attending the same all-girls academy she did for a semester. Obviously he can't hide his gender from the teachers of the school; so he will need their approval, but he also can't expose his gender in front of his fellow students. With the help of his child-hood friend Mariya, his own natural beauty, and just a little bit of luck, Mariya may just be able to fool his fellow students! Considering the turn of events, there may be more to his grandfather's dying request than meets the eye...
Tenshi and Otome involve a guy who has gone through an interesting transformation. However, unlike in Otome, the 'guy' in Tenshi isn't so pleased with the situation. You'll have a fun time watching these two characters as they both take over their respective schools and learn more about themselves.
A boy trying to be a girl. Classic way to make people laugh, but with a serious side aswell. Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru I'm sure will surprise you with going beyond the normal guy being a gril jokes, except for a few classics. Both of these animes are very worth the watch and if you liked one your bound to like the other. ^_^
