Mayo Chiki!

Mayo Chiki!

Due to his upbringing with a wrestler mother and an equally-as-strong sister who beat him up constantly, Kinjirou Sakamachi would rather die than be touched by the opposite sex. So when the boy accidentally discovers that the dreamy school idol (and butler of the wealthy Kanade) Subaru is actually a girl in disguise, Kinjirou finds his life becomes far more complicated. For in exchange for keeping Subaru's gender a secret, Kanade is determined to cure Kinjirou of his gynophobia, with Subaru's help, once and for all...

Both series are romantic comedic slice of life styled featuring a strong supporting male lead and his connections to a girl and her friend, finding himself caught in a slightly awkward love triangle that is bound with strong friendship all around. Both series also have a total resolution of the romance (not leaving you with a "well, things never really got solved" feeling),

They also have strong story telling elements, and deep complex characters in a fleshed out world, making it easy to get pulled in and follow the silly antics, and heart throbbing romance.

Best if watched with a person you're interested in! ;)

I agree, both Toradora and Mayo Ckiki are very similar. Wether it comes to dealing with the main male lead's problems (scary face, or fear of woman), love triangles, or hilarious situations due to the main romances' shortcomings. Tsunderes, great supporting characters, and all of the romance comedy you can ask for. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

They are both great, cute anime with tsundere main characters. Great and entertaining! I highly reccomend both.

Both are heartwarming stories about tsunderes (Ririchiyo is 'tsun-shun' apparently!) coming out of their shell and learning about portraying their emotions normally, though InuxBoku has more of a supernatural element to it while Toradora! is more school-life based.

Tom20 Tom20 says...

Such as Ziggy said, both are similar heartwarming romance stories with the only difference whereas InuxBoku SS has supernatural elements and Toradora is school-life centered.

BubaDictator BubaDictator says...

Both main male characters are serving their heroines and acting like their slaves. The heroines minds are created exact same way, with them being cruel, quiet and confident. If you like one you definetely will like the other.

The Troubled Life of Miss Kotoura

The Troubled Life of Miss Kotoura

Haruka Kotoura has had a psychic ability to read minds since she was born, but her inability to grasp that she's different has led her to be ostracized by every friend she's made. When she meets Manabe, she can't help but be surprised - when he's not imagining strange creatures dancing through the desert, the boy is a hopeless pervert and makes no attempt to hide his dirtiest fantasies. What's more, Manabe isn't driven away by Kotoura seeing his thoughts, and even goes out of his way to befriend her - seemingly because he enjoys thinking of the girl erotically and seeing her subsequent embarrassment! Before long, the once-lonely girl even meets other students who aren't pushed away by her abilities. Could this be the start of a normal school life, with real, lasting friends for Kotoura?

Toradora! and Kotoura-san both involve tense romantic feelings in a typical school setting. They both have deep and somewhat dark, meaningful subplots intermixed with comedic elements. There's also the element of the social outcast finding their place amongst new found friends in both. Both are touching, romantic, and funny, with Kotoura-san having an extra element of interest with the main character's psychic ability. 

Bronia Bronia says...

Although Kotoura has a bit more fantasy than Toradora, at the root of both anime is a story about a black sheep who finds themselves having to adapt to a new situation- new friends, enemies, and love! Toradora has a larger cast and more black sheep than Kotoura-San, but if you liked one, you should like the other. Both are full of sweet romances that you just have to cheer for, little touches of humor, and a whole lot of drama!

GrnEydDvl GrnEydDvl says...

Both shows look on the surface to be your typical moe harem type anime, but you realize very quickly that there is something much deeper going on.  While they both have plenty of light and fluffy moments, they are much more real and complicated than the typical shows in this genre.  Both shows are about being an outcast and the challenges that comes with it, and how a single friend can change everything.  If you're looking for a slice of life/school life show but want something with more substance than usual, these shows are both great.

Say "I love you."

Say

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 series will take you on an emotional roller coaster. I haven't quite finished Suki-tte Ii na yo (Say I love you) yet, but so far I've absolutely loved it. It's about a real girl with real insecurities, dealing with her first love.

Toradora! is also a coming-of-age high school romance, albeit with quite a bit more comedy and laughter. Tears of joy flowed more plentifully than tears of sadness, thankfully. 

tayinoop tayinoop says...

Both are about a tsundere girl and, despite the difference in the amount of episodes, are similiar in character development.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree. In Say I Love You there's considerably less episodes but the atmosphere and overall stories are somewhat similar. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

Both main characters dont have feelings at the start but they both develop those feeling in the time , those feelings are develop slowly by them selves and by little help of there friends.

megalith megalith says...

Even more than the romance, slice of life, school setting, these two shows have a lot of parallels. Hachiman and Ryuuji are both kind of feared for their uninviting looks, although Hachiman takes this to the extreme, but both are genuinely nice and caring individuals.Taiga and Yukino are both well-to-do, intelligent, popular and athletic, but with equally ininviting personalities and no more than two close friends to rely on. Although I wouldn't consider Yukino tsundere, they both are poor at expressing their feelings, but capable of solving everyone else's problems but their own.The vibe in the romance, comedy and school-life action are similar with less martial arts violence in SNAFU. The pacing and tone and what seems to be multiple love interests will appeal to anyone who enjoyed Toradora! and vice  versa.

Arocta Arocta says...

The main male characters of both animes have an uneasy/ unsettling vibe to them causing them, in different ways, to be misunderstood socially. Both animes have a main female character who shows mostly hate towards the main male character, as well as another female main character who is normally very cheerful.
