After being turned down by his unrequited crush, Hachiman Hikigaya is determined to live out the rest of his high school life single and socially tuned out to avoid the folly of youth. But Hachiman's resolve is lacking compared to his guidance counselor, a woman determined to change the boy's ways. So, much to his dismay, Hachiman is soon forced to reach out to those around him by joining a club dedicated to serving others. Alongside the cold, but beautiful club president Yukino, eager Yui, and other new friends, Hachiman will try to stomach his new volunteer work and survive his ultimate fear: being involved in a typical high school romantic comedy.
"If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I do have to do it, make it quick," is the basic principle by which energy conservationist Houtarou Oreki lives. But after his sister convinces him to join the Classics Club, Houtarou's life is turned upside down when he meets Chitanda, a perpetually-inquisitive girl who challenges the boy's easygoing existence. Intrigued by the slightest hint of a mystery afoot, Chitanda doesn't hesitate to pester the reluctant yet highly analytical Houtarou into satisfying her curiosity at every turn, no matter how small the problem. Alongside fellow members Satoshi and Ibara, the group tackles cases ranging from a self-locking classroom door, a strangely-popular library book, and even the shadowy history of the very club to which they belong!
The main protagonist thinks of himself as "hermit who enjoys lonely life", but with progres of story they build own gangs, get girls and mix drama with comedy.
both shows feature a main character that purposely sets out to be a loner(though for different reasons) and are somehow forced to join a school club. they both are comedic slice of life types but Hyou-ka is more mystery centered whereas Yahari is more romcom but if you like one you'll def like the other.
Both of these shows feature laid-back protagonists that are coerced into joining a club and then get dragged into hijinks that makes them friends and helps other people with their problems. Both shows also employ clever dialogue and realistic handling of characterization, a much-needed refreshment amongst the industry these days.
Both male protagonists think that a lonely, quiet life is the best way to live. However, there is a group of people that get in the way of that life style of theirs and turn it completely upside down.
Both are a must watch!!
Both shows are centered on a reserved protagonist who tends to enjoy his loner life and not partake into any social activities in his surroundings. In both cases, there are other people that soon start to make them come out of their shells and socialize more. With some really witty narration, both leads steal the show. Yahari and Hyouka may be different in their approach to the daily life, but if you enjoyed one, there’s a good chance that you might find something to enjoy in the other one.
Oreki (Hyouka) and Hachiman (Yahari) are two of the same vein. While Hypuka tends towards more drama and mystery, the main reason both shows are entertaining would be the MC and his interaction with a strong female character in Hyouka it's with Eru and in Yahari it is Yukino.
Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend.

In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!
While the male progtagonists greatly differ there is some overlap in the girls they hang out with. The story in Haganai is more romantically harem orientated while Yahari leans more toward comedy. Haganai's male lead is a social outcast because of his hair colour while Yahari's distanced himself after getting a bad start and developted a scewed point of view on the world.
Both shows are essentially harem comedies, Haganai focuses more on the romantic side of things, and Yahari definitely focuses more on comedy. Both shows center male lead who's a social outcast, Haganai's because of his hair colour, while Yahari's is more an outcast by choice after a bad start to his new school life. The main difference between the two series is the quality in writing, with Haganai relying more on pretty girls and simple humour to draw you in, while Yahari excels in creating a balanced group of well written characters and more complex comedy. If you liked one, chances are you will find the other entertaining.
Both Yahari and Boku wa Tomodachi (Haganai) follow to socially backwards (or social reject might work better) male leads, Haganai's lead is assumed to be a dellinquent due to his natural blonde coloured hair meaning people avoid him whilst Yahari's lead has a bad view on people and holds no interest in interacting with them. Yahari's lead is built with a well written and strong character making it some good fun to watch and offers lots of laughs but also maybe even some understanding for viewers who might who had social troubles in school, whilst Haganai is built a little more on romantic interaction between the male lead and who fellow club (of all females). Esentially both are romantic comedy though Yahari puts more effort into comedy whilst Haganai is a little more for choosing which girl you want to win. Yahari is structured and written very well meaning you will need to pay a bit of attention to enjoy it to the fullest whilst offering a level of underatanding whilst Haganai is a little more focused on the cute girls and simple comedy which combine for both shows real well.
the main male protagonists are both social outcasts, one because of his hair, the other because he voluntarily cuts himself off from others due to a warped world view. the main female protagonists in both shows seem borderline Yandere types too. both shows seem to put an emphasis on friendships and the social awkwardness of those without friends.
Both animes are about social outcast all in a club. Also, both animes have a male protagonist and two female protagonists. In Haganai, both protagonist decided to make a club together and figure out the concept of friends. While in Yahari, the male protagonist was forced into a club that is about helping others.
Kyousuke Kosaka is a normal teenager with average grades and an average home life, but when he finds out that his overachieving younger sister Kirino has been hiding her vast anime and eroge collection from their unassuming parents, his world turns inside out! Now, having promised to help his formerly distant sibling navigate her two distinct lives, Kyousuke finds himself drawn into Kirino's world of magical girl anime and "little sister" fetish games while covering for his sibling to her parents and friends, not to mention trying to provide what guidance he can.
A comedy centered around eccentric characters. While both main characters seem to see themselves as the down-to-earth straight guy of the group the Yahari male-lead is ''interesting'' to say the least. While the male-lead in Ore-Imouto is simply deathpan.
Both OreImo and Yahari are comedies featuring a number of female characters centering around a single male. While OreImo's male lead could be considered a little bland, Yahari's certainly is not, he's a pretty unique character all things considered, and is one of the main things that sets the two shows apart. The others being Yahari's altogether more impressive secondary character pool, and it's better comedy.
The biggest similarity in these shows is in the characters. In both cases, our MC is surrounded with all types of eccentric females, and both shows are spinning around their unusual relationships. While they have quite different personalities, their actions/reactions minding everything are very similar. With a quite different approach to the daily life, both shows have quite a number of similarities that might make you one of them if you enjoyed the other.
The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!
A school club, where a colorful cast is unwittingly put together and become a unique set of friends.
Both posses humor, and some high school hi-jinx.
The overall flow of the two series is a bit different, but I would assume if you enjoy one, you will get a kick out of the other.
the stucture and to story of a deprived looner is sort of the same of the main guy from this series both have the factor of social acuwardness
In both shows MC is a laid back loner that’s not particularly interested in his surrounding and is not a big fan of socializing. Either way, both show feature some club life that soon starts to turn their views upside down. Similar with the cast structure, and with some solid comedy that MCs provide, I’d say that enjoying one may easily lead you to liking the other one.
Rumors tell of a Stony Cat statue that grants a special wish: it will take one of your disliked personality traits and give it to someone in need. Two students arrive at the Stony Cat eager to make a change – Youto, an unabashed pervert, wishes to remove his façade and be able to speak his true feelings, while Tsukiko desires to hide her expressions and be more like an adult. However, little did the pair know that their prayers would be answered in unexpected ways – Youto begins to speak the full, embarrassing truth with brutal honesty, and Tsukiko becomes visually stoic, unable to smile, laugh or cry! To make matters worse, Youto soon runs afoul of the beautiful school idol Azusa, the girl who inherited his unwanted façade. Together, the three slowly become friends while Youto and Tsukiko try to regain what they've lost.
If you liked Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru or Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko then there's a good chance that you would like the other. Both of them are harem-type animes with a lot of humor thrown in. They also focus on only a couple of girls so it's easier to keep track of them. The MC in both is an outcast of sorts, who doesn't have top notch social skills (a pervert in one and an anti-social kid in the other). Despite that they end up having to help people and make new friends along the way.
Both are about a guy with a social issue, in one he is a pervert where as in the other he is anti social. In either series hilarity ensues as each of the main characters navigate through their high school days with their unique personalities.
