Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san

The ordinary becomes extraordinary, as our protagonist Mahiro Yasaka – an average high school student – suddenly encounters a Nyarlathotep: a formless Cthulhu deity of chaos, who decides to take form as a silver-haired human-like alien. This Nyarlathotep – aptly named Nyarko – may seem like a normal gal, but there’s much more to her than meets the eye! In their encounters together, she ends up saving Mahiro's life, inextricably tying their lives together…

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie

Kazuto Tokino lives his tranquil life attending high school by day and running the family bath house by night; but his peace is all set to change. One fateful day, the Beautiful Princess Valkyrie crashes her spaceship into Kazuto’s public bath, killing the high-schooler outright! In order to revive him, Valkyrie gives the teen half of her soul, with the unfortunate side-effect of reverting the princess back to a child in both body and mind. Now the young Valkyrie is moving in to the bathhouse and, with her brash sister Hydra and over-protective catgirl maid Sanada following close behind, it seems Kazuto’s peaceful life is long behind him…

Like ecchi? Like busty aliens? Well then both of these shows are for you! While Valkyrie in UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie spends most of her time in child form, there are still plenty of other 'bouncy' aliens to satiate any ecchi pallette. Both series also share a similar style of comedy, so if you liked one then you may enjoy the other.

vinod vinod says...

same story of alien princess

female lead is madly in love with male portaganist and stays in his house

focuses more in comedy than romance

comedy 25%

romance 40%

kgg1290 kgg1290 says...

The setting is virutally identical with the several characters coming from space and the main female protagonist being a space princess falling in love with a normal boy. The usual harem types are present and the low-brow comedy will be there for those that enjoy it.

Seto no Hanayome

Seto no Hanayome

While visiting his hometown, junior high school student Michishio Nagasumi's life was changed forever when he nearly drowned. Though he was saved by a mermaid named San, there’s a catch -- her family is part of a merfolk mafia, and they abide by a strict rule: If a mermaid is discovered by a man, either he or the mermaid must die. That is, unless the man marries into the family! Faced with such a decision, Nagasumi can only oblige their customs and become a "happy" newlywed. Now, with a new school year around the corner, Nagasumi must find a way to deal with his new bride, keep her true nature a secret, and most importantly, escape inevitable death at the hands of San's over-protective father’s gang!

Both Seto no Hanayome and To Love-Ru have the same plot: a boy is tricked into marrying an 'otherwordly' creature. Although To Love-Ru has much more ecchi, the comedy is similiar as well.
