Zaig Zaig says...

All a guy wants to do is live a peaceful life/confess to the girl he likes, but due to an energetic alien who falls in love with him and her crazy shenanigans, his plans are shattered and his life never without an eventful moment. Random hostile/stupid alien encounters on Earth and ecchiness are abound in both of these romantic-comedies, so I'm sure you'll like the other.

konalol konalol says...

In both shows the protagonists - Normal Male Students - want a peaceful, rather uneventful and happy life. However, they both encounter a strange, yet cute alien who falls in love with them, making their lives full of fighting against weird creatures and alien overlords. The shows are full of ecchi, comedy and romance. I think if you liked one you should totally check out the other one I'm sure you'd enjoy!

Htieks Htieks says...

Crazy aliens everywhere. And they all gather around this one random guy. Yeah, these two series really have no plot, but are a continuous cycle of comedic scenes, with bizarre characters everywhere. To-love-ru is also chock full of fanservice, whilst Nyaruko-san replace that with an insane amount of references to japanese culture in general. The latter is also infinitely funnier, so if for some reason you liked To-Love-ru, there is really no reason to avoid its improved rival.

They are both about a normal kid who just wants to continue  his normal life. While To Love-Ru has more romance, they are both very funny, and will keep you laughing the entire time through.

Kind of like this can we say, To LOVE-RU And Haiyore is same, in haiyore, an alien coming to earth for mission when to love-ru the girl comes from outerspace also is alien and came to live freely. They both start love the boy they meet, and both guy with time starts liking from unlike to like...

But i gotta say this that Haiyore Nyaruko-San has perverted things when To LOVE-RU has REAL Pervertness with ecchi and fanservice (Haiyore has only violence +18 ecchi conversation, no any boob shows or pantyshoots :D)

To Love-RU Has nudity included, and a lot comedy in haiyore nyaruko-san, u got a little bit more action, but both anime is focusing on developing their relationship. Both anime has harem.

Urusei Yatsura

To Love-Ru is just a 21st century rip off of Urusei Yatsura. Less nostalgic charm but much better animation and it feels more modern.

picconiv picconiv says...

Same idea, similar characters and setting. The animation is better in the modern To Love-Ru, although Urusei Yatsura has more of a comedy feel to it.

Differences can be found in the main character personality (Ataru is openely more perverted than the stoic Yuki) resulting in an anime(To Love-Ru) which is decidedly more Harem style. 

If you liked the original, (Urusei Yatsura), you'll like the modern version.

mrd456 mrd456 says...

both about a human boy in love with a normal girl who ends up havving ro marry an alien princess because of a misunderstanding

KenichiSora KenichiSora says...

these two anime really are just a dated, and modern version of the same anime, well thats obviously not true but it might as well be. notable differences would be the main charactor, yukis just a generic shy guy MC, while Ataru is a generic (extremely) perverted guy MC. which is funny because Ataru actually picks one girl as his only real love, while nobody even knows what yuki even wants.

Sekirei

Sekirei

Minato Sahashi was living a normal life; he had just failed his college entrance exam for a second year in a row, and lived a quiet life in a single's apartment. That is, until the busty Musubi fell from the sky on top of him! She is a Sekirei, one of 108 that are destined to fight each other until only one remains; and he or she will ascend to heaven with his or her chosen one known as an Ashikabi. Minato soon finds himself in the embrace of Musubi, becoming her Ashibaki - but his life will only become more complicated. Musubi isn't the last to claim Minato as her Ashibaki, and what's worse, plenty of other Sekirei and opponents stand in his way!

TLR and Sekirei are not identical; TLR is more of an annoying-girl-in-a-guy's-life ecchi anime, while Sekirei is more focused on the fights. Regardless, both have a similar dumbass, naive and overly protagonist-wanting character and loads of ecchi and oversized breasts. Try one out if you liked the other.

crawller crawller says...

Both anime have lots of ecchi and a guy who is totally useless in combat compared to the big breasted girl that's protecting him.

Zemunasu Zemunasu says...

To see a guy who can't fight be protected by a large breasted bimbo isn't so bad. Both anime have loads of ecchi and I'm quite sure there are some fight scenes in there as well.

Ladies Versus Butlers!

Ladies Versus Butlers!

On scholarship, Hino Akiharu has transferred to Hakureiryou Academy to become a member of the Servent Education program, destined for life as a butler in the houses of the fabulously wealthy. But on his first day, a chance accident causes him to land hands-first on the chest of the school's most voluptuous and prestigious student, Selenia Iori Flameheart. Now, struggling under the punishing Servent-Ed curriculum, tormented by his childhood friend Tomomi and annoyed to no end by the pompous Selenia, Hino has to find a way to make his grades, make some friends, and make it through at least one day without stumbling upon an unfortunate, naked coed!

More appropriately, this should be a recommendation for "If you like Xebec, you'll like this other Xebec production."  While not having all themes in common, there is at least two threads...nay...steel cables, bonding these two animes together.

1) Perversion

2) Comedy

It stands to reason, then, that if you are a fan of both, like me, you'll thoroughly enjoy these two shows!  Be sure to check out the To Love-Ru OVAs as well.  One can only hope they bring LvB OVAs someday.  I love you, Fureimohato-san.

Both Ladies Versus Butlers and To Love-Ru revolve around a centralized male character, thrust into a new and radically different environment in which he must adapt to the new customs and deal with the female character's affections. The level of perversion (although I think the term Ecchi is preferred) is comprable across the two animes and the comedy runs along much the same lines. All in all, if you enjoy watching a male character, surrounded by breasts, struggle about, these are the animes for you.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Ladies Versus Butlers! And To Love-Ru are comedies filled with ecchi characters.  The male leads have to adapt into a new environment to try and while winning a variety of characters affections along the way.

Rizelmine

Rizelmine

In the present, the Japanese government has been conducting experiments to genetically engineer a human: a girl named Rizel. The experiment was a success -- sort of. While healthy and cheerful, 12-year-old Rizel also ended up possessing the uncanny need for “love” to further her development, as well as tears which were in fact volitile explosives! When sadness can end up destroying a city block, what's a girl to do except... get married?! For Iwari Tomori, the young man chosen as the most appropriate partner for Rizel, life is about to change, for better or for worse!

Both main characters are forced to marry a girl that they don't even know and this causes troubles with the boys love and normal life, the funny and heart warming mood is present in both animes, you'll probably like one if you liked one,

Zaig Zaig says...

Both anime are about a bubbly girl who forcibly declares herself to be the protagonist’s endearing wife. Unfortunately for this so-called “wife,” her “husband” already has eyes for someone else (too bad =/). Because of the latter, lots of comedic conflicts arise to annoy the male lead without rest. I assume you liked Rizelmine/To Love-Ru, and I will assume that you will like the other.
