The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior

(Based Off Bakura's 1st episode)Both Main Chracters are placed in an enviroment they don't want to be in and are sourounded by "unique" people that aren't your everday people.

A fairly normal guy, getting away from his family for the first time is forced to live in a complex with a group of eccentric neighbors. Both these normal guy leads fall for one of these weirdos they've been forced to live with. It's a very simple but effective set up for a romantic comedy.  

Both of these shows have ensemble casts with the secondary characters getting plenty of screen time and development. The other eccentric characters are able to give the guy advice about his relationship or just bout life in general and this can lead to strong friendship. 

The normal guy in each show ends up playing straigtman to the wacky neighbors which creates a lot of comedic situations. However these neighbors aren't just jokes though, they have serious relationships and serious relationship problems. 

The main differences between the shows are Bokura using a lot of fast paced humor  and that Sakurasou is about artists rather than just normal students. However, at their heart these are both romantic comedies that have plenty of charm and will cause plenty of laughter along the way. If you liked one then by all means at least try the second one.

These two are not related in any way, but they're so similar they might as well be. Both feature a young teenage student moving in a new apartment complex where also lives a bunch of weirdoes. In both series, the main characters is at first a little off put by all the craziness that's going on at his new place, but eventually warms up to his new lifestyle, partly thanks to a new love interest.

They're both very funny, and at times even heart-warming, but what made Kawaisou and Sakurasou really stand out was their ensemble cast; a good mix of teenagers and young adults forming the main group. If you happened to watch and enjoyed one of them, I think the other is definitely worth watching so give it a shot!



Ryuuji Takasu has an eventful life: his classmates think he's a delinquent due to his 'killer' eyes; his crush Minori seems ever out of reach; and he’s just had an unfortunate encounter with 'palm-sized Taiga' – a feisty and dainty wench in his class. With different cleaning habits and tempers, the two clash like night and day; that is, except for...

Both seem like generic school romances at first, but their quirky characters, great comedy, and heartwarming scenes make each worth watching. Both are also really about people growing up and figuring out how to live their lives.

JAhU JAhU says

Both series are high school romcoms in which the male lead is made to take care of his somewhat helpless female classmate (or kouhai in case of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo). The key difference is the type of character the female lead is, in case of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo it's a kuudere and in case of Toradora! it's a tsundere. Aside from the main duo both series also feature a small cast of their friends who have romcom drama of their own. If you liked one show, odds are you'll like the other one as well.

They both have the same kind of feeling to them and have both have a group of friends that are all so diffrent and both have palmtop tiger mascots :P. I love both these animes

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn...

Both have a fantastic kuudere character. The story is basically about the story of the characters life.. Some thing may not possible to happen but both still worth to watch.. People who do love a genre of "slice of life" is a must to watch this anime

TheFung TheFung says

Both anime series consist of romance and a mix of comedy.  The main character in both series are portaryed as the "normal" character that finds other''s actions to be odd.

Winterborn Winterborn says

These are two incredibly beautiful stories that have you emotionally moved throughout the entire show. Though Angel Beats has less Romance than Sakurasou, they are both very strong Dramas that never mention filler (ever, seriously) and fill in all the blanks with well done comedy and adventure. They start a little light hearted with some comedy and happy backstory but get into the thicker story fairly quickly. Both of them also take place in their own little worlds (be it figurative or not) so you get very comfortable with the setting. Angel Beats is my number one favorite anime of all time, and Sakurasou is right there with it. Both of them are absolute must watches for any Drama or Romance fan.
