Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise?

Both are similar romantic comedies. Lum and Neru are both short tempered and have a tendancy to be violent. Ataru and Keitaro are both bumbling fools, though Ataru is more open with his fantasies. Both are quality series and well worth the watch. Both series have a host of great supporting charecters with unique personalities.

Both have their same similarities like a beautiful girl enters the main characters life and thus starts to meddle into his stuff/life. As a result he does not want her to stay with him and etc. But as time goes on he falls for her but hides those feelings.

Urusei Yatsura and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya are both lighthearted school comedies full of aliens, and strange occurrences.  Both of these anime feature powerful female protagonists who only seem to cause trouble for the unwilling recipients of their affections, though for very different reasons.

These are two of my favorite harem comedies.  One is a classic and one modern, but both had excellent animation for their time.  Comedy and ecchi that stays fresh should appeal to fans of either series.

Iga no Kabamaru

Iga no Kabamaru

After the death of Saizou, Kabamaru's horribly strict grandfather and Iga ninja teacher, an old lady named Ran Akoko claims that she received a letter from him asking her to take care of his grandson. So Kabamaru runs off with Lady Akoko to the big city Tokyo to gorge on yakisoba, ramen, chow mein, and attend a regular school—which turns out to have weird quirks of its own.

Protagonists Moroboshi Ataru and Igano Kabamaru share a love of food, sleeping in class, girls, and making the most of their school days.  While Urusei is vastly superior imo, fans of the comedy in one may like the other of these early 80's anime.
