Kei Kusanagi is a shy teenage boy with no romantic experience whatsoever... until he finds out that his hot new teacher is actually an alien! In order to conceal her identity, the two are forced into a pretend marriage... but is it really a pretense, or are they actually falling in love?
Vandread might be about mecha whereas Please Teacher stays very true to the 'romantic comedy' genre; nonetheless they have a very similar feeling. Aside from common feelings such as shyness and jealousy, both have female leads who don't know much about men. Don't let the genres fool you, Vandread isn't that mecha-filled, so both series are very similar!
Sumiregawa Nenene is an author who hasn't published a book in years. However, at a book signing in Hong Kong, things go fascinatingly awry. For starters, her guides are three sisters who operate a detective agency: Maggie, Michelle, and Anita. Then there's the attacks on Nenene's life, and her only line of defense is the three sisters -- who can all use paper as weapons, tools, and even transportation. But can their powers protect Nenene from the mysterious forces that not only want her, but all the precious books of the world...?
Welcome to the famous Broadway Little Lip Theatre, known for its gorgeous actresses who will put on an amazing show for you before jumping into their steam-powered mecha suits to protect the city in danger. Fighting with beauty and grace, the New York Fighting Troupe won’t let villains touch their precious city. Soon after their leader Lachette Altair leaves for another mission, an ancient Egyptian force is unleashed upon the city. Can the girls and Shinjiro Taiga fight off mummies and magic, while still getting in enough practice time to perform their highly anticipated show, Cleopatra?
Both these shows have a mostly all-female cast, who run everything, and a male character suddenly given power in the female group. The female characters are similar in the way that they are all different, and most are based off sterotypes. Also, mechas are the weapon of choice in both.
In the year 2070, a giant object appears over the skies of the small town Tenmo, scrambling the electrical grid and confirming the existence of extra terrestrial life. To young Hajime Morata, this news is exciting and new - but to the townspeople, school council members and even the new exchange student Muryou Subaru, nothing going on in the skies is out of the ordinary. For it seems that Earth houses both intergalactic ambassadors and planet defenders alike - at least one of whom can use the power of the giant Shingu to battle incoming invaders - and Hajime is somehow connected. In addition to helping plan school festivals and living his day to day life, Hajime slowly begins to discover the secret behind his town and himself.
Both are pretty similar, but I think that Vandread is a little better. While they are both about fighting aliens and relationships about the main characters, there are some big differences. Vandread deals all in space and the relationship problems are on all whole new scale.
