Mei Tachibana has had neither a friend nor a boyfriend in 16 years, and she doesn’t plan on ending that streak any time soon. The outcast learned years ago that social obligations only lead to pain, and has carefully guarded her heart to keep from getting hurt. However, the girl can’t stay withdrawn forever, especially after attracting the attention of the handsome Yamato, who finds her caustic personality interesting and strives to date her after she roundhouse kicks him down the stairs. But even the most earnest of romances can be crippled by jealousy and insecurity, and this pair has plenty of both. Can their feelings for each other overcome their own emotional weaknesses, or will this love perish before it even begins?
Both of these anime have the same type of main characters, the unsociable girl that eventually makes friends, and the tall, black-haired male. They also have key similarities in the story line.
I love both of these anime but, if i had a choice between them, I would choose Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun because of the comedy in it.
I recommend watching both if you liked one or the other!
They have a lot of similarities, first of all the anti-social femenine main character who starts making friends when she meets a boy. They are both full of misunderstandings because of the characters keeping their thoughts for themselves without telling anyone.
If I had to choose between one or the other, I personally would prefere Sukitte ii na yo, just because it is a bit more realistic (more kisses, less mental trip, the boy wanna go straight to the point, that's more likely, haha!)
Both anime series consist of characters that are "new" to love. They don't know how to express their feelings to each other and often find it hard to detect the other's behavior but they try their hardest to make it work.
Both of these series center around high shool romance, while Tonari is more quirky and fun, Suki-tte is more of a coming of age drama type. Either way both are great if you like romance.
The two shows have a lot of similarities in character base and plot, but the atmosphere is much different. Sukitte Ilnayo is much more innocent and lovey-dovey, while Kaibatsu has a lot more comedy. But that being said they are both very well done love stories between two unlikely people. The friends they make along the way seem very similar too. Any romance fan should check out both.
Both anime have a similar story, although Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is more of a comedy-type and Suki-tte Ii na yo is a bit more dramatic. Both great to watch though..
I watched both at the same time and i guess that they do have a similarity in how the characters grow and change over the course of the show. One more serious than the other but both enjoyable.
Both anime are told from the main girl lead perspective and also start the same with a silent girl who doesn't have any friends and then get's a boyfriend. In Tonari it's a problem child (Hot-Headed and impulsive) and in Suki-tte it is the most popular guy in the school
Tonari has more comedy in it and Sukki-tte is more serious but if you liked one you will most likely like the other too
I find both anime very similar to each other. I watch Say "I love you" first then watch My Little Monster and loved them both. My little Monster has more comedy than Say "I love you". I would have to say Say " I love you" is a little more serious and focus more around the romance and the struggles that come along with it. Where My Little Monster focus around comedy and less on romance but the romance they do focus on is not as complex in my opinion.
Both animes are just wonderful, and yes, while they are different in many aspects, for example, "Say I love you" is more serious and has less of a comedy touch to it, they both are very similar. The main characters(girls) have a hard time expressing their affection (or do i say they lack social skills), and then there are the main characters (guys) that break their outter shells! Along the way you will see how similar of temperaments they all have, and you will once more go along the characters in an epic journey!
President of the Student Council at the almost-all-boys Seika High School, the hard-as-nails Misaki Ayuzawa works every day to make life easier on the small population of co-eds who have enrolled there. Though an unholy terror to all things male during school hours, in order to provide for her impoverished family, she secretly works after school at a maid cafe in Akihabara. However, when campus hottie Usui Takumi wanders into the restaurant during her shift, suddenly she finds her reputation in school at his mercy...
The two main male protagonists are both a little overbearing, do as they please, and have totally fallen for a female lead who seems bent on ignoring them in favor of her studies. If you like shoujo with lots of tension and hilarious conflict between a pair of characters who oh-so-obviously like each other, give these two shows a go.
I really LOVE both animes!!
Both have a guy that is madly inlove with the protagonist ( girl ) and tells her strait up front and even though she rejects them they keep on lingering around like a faithful dog until they realize that they truly can't be withought them <3 <3
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is a bit more back and forth type of anime and I found it to be much harder to stop watching it, while Kaichou wa Maid-sama! made me laugh more and had a few more light-hearted moments. Both are very good romance animes.
romantic comedyodd but perfect couple
you would enjoy it
both series character have doubt on their emotion
but hero is always in love with heroine from the very begining
a secondary character is after main female character too and she care from him but it's not love
The couples are sooooo cute, and they characters are so similar, but it doesn't feel like the anime's are just copies of each other because the story lines are different (yet still amazing)
They are both really great series, and the couples are really cute together. The storyline is quite different, but they both have the same feel to them. If you enjoyed one, I would definitely recomend the other.
Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun reminded of Bokura ga Ita...both have a similar atmoshpere. If you liked this anime you'll like the other one as well.
I dont know why but they seem similar to me so thats why I decided to do this recommendation. I guess that if you liked one you'll like the other.
Really cutesy in the same way, both will make your heart melt because they are both extremely cute! The stories are similar but Bokura Ga Ita is the girl being confused and the guy being indecisive. Both guys have a rough past and they are all great characters.
The relationships are so similar in both of these stories. Both couples have a confession early on only to clash and doubt later. They are the one step forward, two steps back types. If Haru could keep his temper in check, he would be Yano. Handsome, honest, and a bit doofusy, these characters are the lovable dogs of their shows. Nana and Mitty are also very similar. They know who they love, they just don't know if they should.
The romance story line is very similar
Sawako Kuronuma is just like any other high school girl who wants to make friends and be useful. The only problem is she bears a worrying resemblance to Sadako from 'The Ring!' Because of her reputation, people are not only terrified of her, but small dogs even bark in fear at her presence; in fact, the only person in school who will talk to her is the lively class hottie, Kazehaya. As the pair spends more time together, Kazehaya slowly begins to bring Sawako out of her shell and soon their feelings for each other develop further. Though with her crippling insecurities, lack of social skills, and a series of cruel rumors and misunderstandings, it seems that Sawako's dream of a normal life won’t be quite so easy to obtain.
Light-hearted, sponteanous and innocent boy against quiet antisocial heroine. Kaibutsu-kun is kind of a delinquent compared to Kazehaya-kun. But They both are true to their hearts and awesomely honest.
While i was watching Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun it kept reminding me of kimi ni todoke. very simular elements. if you like one im sure you will like the other.
This is the first show that came to mind for me. Sawako and Haru are both characters who are outcasted and feared by their peers but want desperatly to make friends. All of the characters in both shows are as sweet as they are awkward, and often have trouble communicating. However, where as most of the misunderstandings in Tonari no Kaibutsu arise from their blunt, egocentric, overzealous all or nothing attitudes- the problems in Kimi ni Todoke stem from their insecurities and inability to openly state what they want. Essentially, these shows are both the same love story but with two couples who represent completely different approaches and understandings of life.
Kimi Ni Todoke and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun both have that "girl meets boy" feel. There is an unsociable girl who meets a guy. Though the main charecters are far from being alike, it has the same romantic and sweet feel to it.The animation is similar. Kimi ni Todoke is slower paced than Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Both are really great animes.
Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...
If you like shoujo where the two main characters are endlessly in conflict with each other, but like each other despite how much they seem to hate each other, then check out either of these two shows.
Absolutely not doubt that these two are in a class of their own when it comes to Rom-coms. Great chemistry between the two main characters, no 'filler' episodes, it's all about their relationship, and getting to know their characters.
They both make you wonder how the heck this relationship will ever work because the characters don't exactly mesh well. Also, in both, there is one character that is obviously pursuing the other much more than their partner would like. The last reason is that, unlike some of shoujo, it puts more emphasis on the comedy than the gooey romance.
Both are funny and make great scenes. OMG! Fangirling over here. The only difference about the two is that the couple in Lovely Complex faced problems about their height.
